Integrity – 1: an unimpaired condition: Soundness 2: firm adherence to a code of moral or creative values: Incorruptibility 3: the quality or state of being complete or undivided: Completeness
Happiness Requires Integrity
If you are looking for happiness and you are not in integrity, you won’t get very far. That is because happiness is a state of well-being and contentment. If you are not in integrity, then you are by definition in a state of being that is incomplete, impaired, unsound, corruptible, etc. It is an incompatible foundation for happiness.
Luckily and conveniently, our fingerprints contain the elements of our innate integrity—the specific things we must align with to be in a state of wholeness.
Life Purpose Hand Analysis was developed by Richard Ungar, founder and director of the International Institute of Hand Analysis. This system is non-predictive and contains no form of fortunetelling. Instead, it looks at two psychologies reflected in the hands: our soul psychology and our personality, or our behavioral/emotional psychology.
There are four basic fingerprint types. They are formed five months before we are born, and they are the one part of our hands that does not change in our lifetime. Because the information in our fingerprints is set before we are born, it is called the Soul Agenda. Our combined ten fingerprints make up our print chart. Depending on which print types we have, how many and where, our fingerprints reveal what we are up to in this life. They reveal our purpose—what our soul wants to experience for joy—and our lesson—what we must learn and overcome in order to realize and enjoy our purpose.
While becoming aware of our personal integrity is awesome and organizing, aligning with it is much easier said than done. First, we come with fears and insecurities (chronicled in the fingerprints) that influence our behavior. And second, we tend to ignore the first ingredient in the recipe of behavior—our thoughts. In fact, our thoughts are the first ingredient in the recipe of our reality.
The Recipe for Reality
Most people believe that their feelings are caused by their circumstances—that they are angry, happy, hurt, anxious, etc. because something has happened, is happening, or may happen to make them feel that way. The truth is that feelings are never caused by circumstances, but rather what we think about our circumstances. Our feelings are always caused by our thoughts. In fact, you physically can’t have a feeling without first having a thought. Dr Joe Dispenza, in his book, Evolve Your Brain, explains:
” … your every thought produces a biochemical reaction in the brain. The brain then releases chemical signals that are transmitted to the body, where they act as messengers of thought. The thoughts that produce the chemicals in the brain allow your body to feel the way you were just thinking. So every thought produces a chemical that is matched by a feeling in your body.”
This is a tiny distinction with huge implications in your life. It’s important to understand how you get your feelings because your feelings drive your actions. If you’re a deer and notice a lion hiding in the bushes, you will not be able to flee until you have adrenaline, which your brain will not be able to produce until you have the thought, “I’m in grave danger.”
How you choose to think about any situation will ultimately affect your reality. So much of our power is in this present moment—a moment we tend to overlook. How might your results differ if you responded to any situation from feelings of anger vs. feelings of forgiveness, or judgment vs. compassion, victimhood vs. empowerment, blame vs. responsibility, unworthiness vs. value, fear vs. love?
And yet we come with a lesson in our fingerprints that is designed to generate negative thinking. That implies that we are here, in part, to resolve and evolve our limited thinking. Taking responsibility, learning to become aware of your thinking, and learning how to choose thoughts that reflect your desires rather than your fears is the key to changing your life whether its relationships, finances, career, or eating a healthier diet. This process is the basis for the coaching model I use. I am a graduate of Brooke Castillo’s Life Coach School (she’s awesome). I specifically chose her program because it was designed with an understanding of the science behind how we think, feel, behave and create. So for all my clients and in all my classes and workshops, my goal is to promote happiness through integrity.
The work is a process of getting into alignment—your thoughts, feelings, and actions—to create your reality. For that, I use coaching. What you want to align with is the map in your fingerprints—your integrity. For that, I use modern hand analysis.
