December 2013 – Newsletter

Parade horse

Greetings of the season from the Pacific Northwest of the USA. This month’s photograph was taken during a parade in Seattle. 

As another year draws to a close, it is a time for reflection and celebration.  I thank each of you for your continuing interest in face reading and the classes I’m teaching.  Here is looking forward to many expanded opportunities to teach throughout 2014 as well!

Best wishes always,

Glenna

1. Facial features and their associated meaning – the nasal-labial lines.

 What, you may be asking, are these?  Any creases that indent the face from the wings of the nose to the corners of the mouth (and some even continue down to the jaw line) are referred to as ‘nasal-labial lines’.  You may wish to think of them as ‘eddy current line’ that reflect conflict around expressiveness.  The mouth area indicates the manner of verbal expression and the cheeks reveal the process of emotional expression.  When on type of expression is more suppressed than the other, these ‘lines of resistance’ or ‘eddy lines’ will develop. 

Looking back through the Face of the Month archives, you will see quite a variety in the nasal-labial lines of the faces featured.  Please share your questions, thoughts and observations with me.

 2. More on facial features – the nose

Physically, the nose – the passageway for the very breath of life – serves many incredible functions . . . such as being the breath-intake, a dust filter, air-warmer, air moisturizer, and so forth.  The nose affects everything about the individuals and therefore reflects the person’s ‘state of being’.  As the centre piece of the face, the nose mediates between the eyes, between the halves of the brain and between the individual and the world.  It represents the core of the ego (the self-image).

Other aspects of how the individual functions is revealed by the nose, such as the amount of personal power the individual displays as well as their assertiveness, self-recognition and intuition.

What is written here is only a very brief description of this fascinating feature of the face and various aspects will be described in future newsletters. 

For this issue, let’s look at nose placement as this reflects the person’s relationship to the world around them, as well as their manner of dealing with their environment.  An ‘average’ placement where the nose is in the middle section of the face indicates balance in how that individual utilises and enjoys their personal resources.  When the nose is situated higher up the face, this is an indication of someone who prefers more solitude, is ‘self-made’ and likely to have a good handle on financial issues.  Where the nose is placed low, the person tends to have an easy-going attitude and tends not to accumulate too much.  Can you find examples of each in the Face of the Month archive – or in faces you see in today’s news?

3. Glenna’s reading of the November 2013 Face of the Month (www.glennatrout.com)

Snowden

You have expressed so much interest in November’s Face of the Month. This face reveals huge (yet grim) determination, intelligence, grief, and traces of humour (in the private half of his face).   

His ‘social mask’ eye shows a sense of overwhelm while his ‘real self’ eye shows tiredness, grief and constant reflection.

However you may personally feel about what he has done, there is no doubt that Edward Snowden has raised awareness and debate about governments – especially the US government – collecting information on citizens in the name of ‘national security’.

 4. FAQ’s – “Can these tools be used to prove a case in a criminal prosecution?”

 Glenna replies – Absolutely not!  No matter how skilled we become in using the tools of face reading, this will always be a subjective process – in that an individual is always putting her or his own interpretation on what s/he is observing.  Therefore, this is not an ‘absolute’ process in the way that fingerprints or DNA can be.  Having said that, these can be very useful tools during an investigation process.  Through the use of face reading skills, investigator(s) can get a deeper understanding of how an individual thinks, feels and behaves.  Additionally, this can enhance communication skills and improve observation of details and subtle messages.  When combined with NLP skills, both disciplines become even more impactful.
