Check out our upcoming Hand Analysis class. Learn to read hands as you journey to the core of your most meaningful life. Set the stage for the dance of a life time where your Soul Consciousness partners with your Authentic Personality. And this is just the beginning – leave with the clarity to re-energize the LIFE YOU WANT TO WAKE UP TO! And if you want to help others do the same, this is the Intensive Hand Analysis Class for is you.

Are you a healer, counselor, coach, artist, entrepreneur?

Adopt a fresh new assessment tool to uncover the core consciousness required for yourself and your clients to live a life of balance, abundance, creativity and meaning.

Are you someone moving forward and you find yourself on the brink?

Need the tools to navigate this transition?

This experience gives you the focus and clarity to overcome the fear that comes with being on the BRINK of the change you have been looking for! Then you can take the action to move forward with confidence.

Find the source for true meaning and satisfaction. It’s in your Hands – literally in your hands (and fingerprints).

We are human and we strive. We are human and we suffer. What separates us from the animal kingdom is our ability to reflect, to hope, to imagine and to seek greater meaning. We have the will power and discernment to shape our own lives.

You are simultaneously an individual and part of a community. Are you someone who strives to feel whole and yearns to contribute meaningfully to your community? I trust if you are reading this, the answer is yes! Isn’t it true, though, at some time in your life you have struggled to find your niche, your calling, the core of your passion so that you CAN make a difference? And I’ll bet that you know others struggling with these all too human challenges.

To understand your Life Purpose and how to live it every day is the single greatest treasure you will ever have. And the map to find that treasure is in your hands – literally in your hands. Once you learn how to make the best choices based on your Soul potential, you can realize the success you want and contribute to the success of your community.

Your hands and fingerprints are the map for living a life of meaning and purpose. Hand Analysis is the navigation tool you’ve been looking for.

Hands – lines, shape, fingers and color – reflect your personality archetype, your motivations, your behaviors

Fingerprints contain the map of your core essence that goes beyond your personality characteristics.

fingerprints reveal your soul map

Imprinted indelibly 5 months before you were born. Fingerprints contain the elusive higher self, your unique purpose as well the least conscious part of you–what is getting in the way of a life lived fully and on purpose.
