Soul Psychology & Fingerprints

YOUR Blueprint For Life

lifeprints hand analysis intensivePhysical Identification: There are four basic types of prints and being able to identify just what you are looking at is the rock bottom basis to being able to decode Soul Psychology. There are Whorls, Loops, Tented Arches, Arches, and Subtype Combinations and they can show up in any combination on the ten fingers. We take a good detailed look at these together using all participant’s fingerprints to practice on so you can get comfortable and confident about identifying the prints.

At Life Purpose Now, we’re proud to have the reputation of being the “sticklers” within the profession on fingerprint identification and interpretation…as in the best at helping you pinpoint the important details of the fingerprints that help you make solid confident identifications.

Soul Psychology

lifeprints hand analysis intensiveWhat is Life Purpose anyway? Is it a job description?

A goal? Is it what you’re “good at” doing?

It’s important to look at what Life Purpose is and what it isn’t so you can relate to your own effectively and help others understand theirs too.

And what are the different pieces of Soul Psychology? What do the Life Purpose, Life Lesson and Life School have to do with each other?

Nothing in the hands operates separately from the other pieces. Everything is part of a system and a process that is full of relationships that make each person unique. This is one of most misunderstood aspects of translating hands and we’ll start here, right at the beginning, learning to see how the pieces relate to each other to form the whole person sitting in front of you. “The whole is more than the sum of its parts” just like describing a person swimming is not a description of what their left leg is doing, then their right arm, then their hair, then their eyes. We are each like a puzzle whose many pieces form a bigger picture.

Imagine how good it would feel to know, once and for all, who you came here to be and what you need to do about it. Would you like to wake up each day with an empowered sense of what steps you need to take to move more deeply into your most purposeful life? Would you like to live with a basic sense of peace and harmony within yourself? Once you learn to decode the School, Lesson, and Purpose you can start consciously working on your life and enjoy the satisfaction of empowering others to do the same…instead of being worked over by it!

Life Schools

Decoding the 4 Life Schools & their combinations

lifeprints hand analysis intensive
The School is like the type of the water you swim in. Its function is to strengthen you for the trials of your Lesson and the demands and joys of your Purpose. You can’t do either without jumping into the water of your School. Most have one school or a combination of two.

  • School of Peace & Panic
  • School of Wisdom & Waiting
  • School of Love & Misunderstanding
  • School of Service & Servitude

Life Lessons

Decoding the 14 Life Lessons & their combinations


It is nothing short of amazing to have your Lesson identified. All of a sudden you have a name for something elusive that has been with you all your life but you couldn’t quite put your finger on. Your Lesson is your big blind spot and stumbling block. It’s that thing that holds you back and teaches you what you need to learn so you can live your Purpose. Once you know your Lesson you realize there is nothing wrong with you for having a hard time with it. It’s your Lesson! Self-forgiveness and self-acceptance become possible and you can move ahead. Compassion for yourself and others arises since we all have Lessons. You can offer this loving perspective to others. And NOW you can turn your seeming enemy into your greatest supporter because you know what it is and can work on it with conscious awareness and watch as it moves you towards your Purpose!

The Lesson is like your left leg that doesn’t want to kick properly when you’re swimming…but once you figure this out and pay attention to it and work on it you begin to be able to REALLY swim through life.

Life Purposes

Decoding the 14 Life Purposes and their combinations

Your Purpose is a life description not a job description. Your Purpose is the kind of swimmer you’re built to be. It is your essential self yearning to express itself in everything you do, say, and think. When you live in your Purpose you feel securely anchored no matter what is going around you. You reap the certainty of knowing who you are and what you need to do to express it. You get connected to the raw beating heart of your life, find your place in the world, and connect in a deeply meaningful way to your work and in all your relationships. You can relax into yourself and move through your life with more ease, clarity, and confidence.

Together we’ll discover:

  • Master of Results/Success
  • Family/Community
  • Leadership/Influence
  • Life of Passion/Advocacy
  • Business/Setting Things Right
  • Mentor/Coach
  • Artist/Performer
  • Innovator/Maverick
  • Messenger/Mass Communicator
  • Healer/Inspirational Communicator
  • Master of Peace & Balance
  • Master of Wisdom & Advising
  • Master of Love & Feelings
  • Master of Service & Sharing

Personality Psychology

Vehicle for Your Life’s Journey

lifeprints hand analysis intensiveIn the Hand Analysis Intensive we get you started with the shape and lines of the hands, because they are ALL about your personality psychology—your unique combination of characteristics that make you uniquely you. In this training we introduce you to some of the easiest to identify markers of personality that show in the hands and how to start comparing the Soul Psychology (in the fingerprints) against the needs of the personality to reduce conflict between the two.

When reading hands, it’s very important to understand that everything in the hands is operating in relationship to everything else. No marker in the hands is working all alone. You must begin to put the pieces of the puzzle together so you can tell the unique story the hands are telling. This is one of the keys to great readership and get your going with, right from the start.

Strong & Weak Fingers = Aptitudes & Personal Challenges

Strong fingers represent areas of natural skill and the focus point of your personality. They help us understand what comes most easily to you and how you are likely to behave in relationship to others.

Finger Settings = Non-negotiable Needs That Must Be Met

Yes! We all have needs and many of us focus our energies to try very hard to get particular needs met—often at the expense of other needs which go very hungry. Either way, finger settings let us know when there is an imbalance in our needs system, what difficult feelings result from this imbalance, and how to refocus attention so we can get our needs met and feel good about ourselves, our relationship to others, and life.

Learn Life Purpose, Life Lesson, Life School from fingerprints, Ronelle Coburn, Richard UngerThumbs—Willpower, Determination, Manifestation

Thumbs are perhaps our most precious human possession. They tell you no less than your optimum scope of work, how easy or difficult it is to get things done, and how you form your intentions, make decisions, and take action (or not). Thumbs are about manifestation, the process of willing things to happen. When does it make sense to push and when to wait and go with the flow? Where are the blocks to your ability to get what you want? So much of success in life is directly tied to your ability to discern what you have control over and whether or not you take it, as well as what is not up to you and when to let things go.

The thumb is an amazingly rich source of information and we look at all aspects of the thumb and your manifestation potential:

Size: how much energy for doing

Setting: how easy it is to get things done

Opposition: Optimum size sphere best for you

Flexibility: Stiff and “tough types” and flexible “go with the flow” types

Curvature: Emotion or Logic Based

Chakras: Wow! You can assess your chakras right from your own thumbs. No need to meditate for a lifetime to be able to understand just what’s up with your “Ready, Aim, Fire!”

Heart Lines Intro—Your emotional system and relating style

Learn Life Purpose, Life Lesson, Life School from fingerprints, heart linesYour heart lines are one of the most information-packed of hand features and they’re definitely the easiest line to start out with. What would it mean to gain insight into the four different basic heart styles so you can instantly better understand how to relate to yourself and to everyone else (including your intimate partner)?

You’ll be introduced to the four basic heart styles and their preferred styles of attention and communication:

Passionate: “I know what I want!”

Nurturer: “How do you feel?”

Heroic Stoic: “Keep it simple”

Rational Idealist: “Why is that?”
