This outpictures the highest and greatest aims and purposes in the body of your self and life.


Are you properly aware, perceptive, and understanding of your surroundings? Do you usually sense matters, individuals, and situations correctly? ...or do you project your judgments onto others? Do you understand the meaning and significance of things? ...or experience your judgments? Can you discern the wisdom and benevolence of life? ...or events and circumstances? Are you seeking enlightenment? What new beliefs, things, or relationships are you accepting into your life? Are your expressions true? What does your life reveal about your beliefs? Are you aware of what is happening? Are others challenging your knowledge and instincts? What do you sense is happening? Are you too impressionable? Are you properly discerning and discriminating? ...clear-sighted? ...understanding? Have you made a noticeable impression on others lately? Do you conceal your motives and actions? ...your attitudes and emotions? Are you open and distinct? What are you manifesting, forming, and developing in your self and life? Remember, you will experience and have to live your creations, ...have you chosen wisely? What is your primary focus in life? Do you appreciate yourself and others? Do you see and hear what is happening? Do you understand and appreciate that? Are you being bothered by others and events? Is life too painful? Are your endeavors and relationships hurtful? ...too difficult? Do you wish not to see or know what is so painful? Are matters really that difficult? Do you play headgames with yourself and others?


Do you feel in control of your self and life? Are you struggling for control? Do you manage your self and life wisely? Mobilize the dormant forces of wisdom within you and share your enthusiasm. Prosperity is not founded in wealth.


Where are you headed in life, ...do you know? Do you care? Are your beliefs and activities heady? ...inviting and exhilarating? ...seductive? Are you being too headstrong? ...too stubborn and obstinate? Are you or others too hotheaded? ...unmanageable? ...defiant and ungovernable? Are you being pigheaded? Are you in command of your self and life? Do you feel inferior? ...superior? Do you carefully watch over your lifeself? Are you taking care of others? How do you feel about that? Is your mind filled with busy thoughts? Are those thoughts of worry and anxiety? ...or of joy and gratitude? Do you feel you are managing things, ...yet find that, in fact, you are manipulating yourself and others? Who or what are you hiding from? Yourself? Others? Why?


Put affirmative beliefs, thoughts, attitudes, emotions, words, and actions to work in your life now. Expressing compassion for others will awaken and enliven you, for the world does extend beyond your head and what you believe, think, and feel. It's time to determine where you are and set a new course, ...make yourself truly receptive to all you desire and dream of. The mysteries of life are constantly revealed in all things. Don't worsen your problems and relationships by worrying about the fact that you are concerned. It's important to become aware of your true beliefs and expectations. Waiting until you are, in your opinion, free, worthy, able, or deserving to live the self and life of your dreams will take quite a while; ...loosen up and begin today.


Who or what offers you appropriate guidance and direction in life? Are you following that advice? If so, are you joyously happy with yourself and life? If not, why not? Who or what is leading you astray? Are you the overseer of your life? ...or have you given your empowerment away? To whom or what? What is unfolding in your life? Is that what you truly desire? Do you feel restricted and suppressed? By whom or what? Beyond these limitations, what would you be and live? Are you certain of that, ...or is it that you are restricting yourself and life? Why? Who or what holds dominion in your life? Is that what you want? ...or have you forsaken your self and life? Why? Do you reflect upon your great gifts ...or deny them? Do you apply them or retain them? Are you willing to create a greater sense of worth and self-esteem by creating a joyous day for someone?


You are the head of your embodied self and life, ...are you pleased with your creations?


hands, both

These reveal your doing, creating, performing. Administering and accomplishing.


Are you putting your wholeself into what you are doing? If not, what are you holding back? Why are you withholding that? What do you expect to gain by withholding? Do you do only what is necessary to get by? Do you do things only to see what you can get? ...or to manipulate people or situations in to giving you what you want? Have you put your self and life in order? Have you put your visions into your life ...and lived them? Do you usually do as you are told ...or asked to do? Are you doing as well as expected? ...as well as you expected? If not, is it that you’re not putting yourself into your life? Are you faring well? Are you creating the self and life you truly desire? What have you constructed in your life? What are you bringing into being? Is that what you really desire? Are you building and developing the self and life you truly desire? Are you imaginative in all you create and do? And when problems occur, ...are you inventive? ...or do you merely complain? What are you creating for yourself? Have you fully mobilized the powerful resources within you? If not, ...what are you waiting for? Don’t sit back and wait for others to make the first move, ...find your inner-resources and move ahead, ...for no matter how much you use or give away, that and more is reinvigorated within you.

hands, general problems

A difficulty in handling, grasping, or letting go of things. Trembling hands mirror an inner trembling or uncertainty. Are you nervous or anxious about what you are doing ...or may receive? Sweating palms indicate the emotion (liquid sweat) being exuded in a tense or involving situation; while poor circulation depicts a lack of emotion ...or withholding of potentially desirable emotions and attitudes from activities. Tingling hands suggest that you become more aware of how you are handling situations and relationships. Hurt or damage to the skin of hands shows how your actions and behaviors--especially regarding giving or receiving or doing--are hurting you ...and damaging your security and sense of protection, your definition of self, and your limitations and restrictions. Poor circulation in hands outpictures a lack of emotion regarding giving/ receiving/ doing, or withholding potentially desirable or necessary emotions and attitudes from current activities and relationships ...and from self.


Afflictions with hands indicate a general problem in handling things in life, or a difficulty in handling specific situations or relationships. A pain or problem in opening or closing your hand outpictures a difficulty in accepting, offering, or performing. Rough hands suggest a lack of gentleness in dealing with others or situations, and possibly carelessness; but, since this may not always be true, the condition of hands must be considered in relationship to the normal actions performed by them, or the hurt or difficulty involved. Are you having problems handling matters, difficulties, relationships, commitments, or other things in your life? 


Are you too greedy or non-accepting? ...over-indulgent? ...self-serving? Does it hurt you to give to others or to be accepting of them? Do you hold on to things too tightly or too long? Do you have problems understanding others or events, ...or grasping their meaning or purpose? Being too right-fisted can only hurt you. Are you being hurt by your own actions? Stop being so mercenary. Are your ambitions hurting you? Are you grappling with too many problems? Take hold of your affairs, your relationships, and your life, ...but not too tightly. Are you handling matters realistically? Are you properly in touch with situations? ...other individuals? ...yourself? Can you correctly manage and fulfill your responsibilities? Are you using your talents and resources appropriately? Stop trying to manipulate others. Is what you are handing out or giving others truthful and honest? Is something warning you, or indicating the inevitability of matters, ...such as handwriting on the wall?

hand, left

Receiving (as accepting or agreeing with). Gaining. Welcoming or embracing into your life (as believing or taking on faith, greeting, understanding or comprehending, embodying, including, realizing). If left-handed (left-hand dominant), reverse the outpicturings for right and left hands. 


You receive as you give, ...the two are as mutually interdependent as breathing in and breathing out. Are you manipulating someone or something to get what you want? Do you accommodate others? ...genuinely accommodate them? Are you taking in too much? ...over-committing yourself? Are you encountering new, more difficult matters and relationships in your life? What is being inflicted on you? Do you usually receive others with open arms ...and their beliefs and ideas with an open mind? Is there someone you are to greet and welcome who bothers and annoys you? Is there someone or something you should admit into your self and life? Have you accepted someone or something you now regret? Are you willing to accept another’s apology and forgive him/her? To accept does not mean you condone.


Have you refused to accept or forgive someone? Have you, or another, done something that is unacceptable? Are you disowning or repudiating something? Are you, too frequently and too dependently, seeking the approval or endorsement of others? Is this appropriate? Does it bother you? What other choices do you have? Is what you are working on acceptable? Are your desires acceptable? Are the desires of others acceptable to you? You receive to the degree that you are willing to live your beliefs, ...and you experience according to those beliefs, ...are your beliefs what and as you want to receive?

hand, right

Giving and offering (as bestowing upon, blessing or praising, entrusting or granting, assigning or dispensing, setting forth or manifesting, demonstrating, relinquishing, disclosing, or revealing).


When meeting people, always ask yourself, "What can I give them?" Make yourself a worthy gift ...and offer yourself to others. Contribute to others, ...do not drain them. Enrich yourself and others, ...or, more appropriately said, ...you enrich yourself as you enrich others. Do you entrust yourself to others? What of yourself do you convey to others? Do you easily accommodate others ...and varying situations and circumstances? Are you willing to indulge others with favor? ...to willingly assist them? ...expecting no favors in return? Do you tend to do things only in exchange?


Do you give yourself to life, and to your actions and endeavors, with great enthusiasm? Do you fervently devote yourself to your activities? Do you give yourself and others comfort? Ordinary interactions with people, events, and problems offer extraordinary opportunities for enhancement, ...in fact, troublesome people and situations are often your finest opportunities. There is more to do and gain than you can see or imagine. Works, not words, are the true measure of enrichment. What is the foundation upon which you are creating and building your self and life?
