Sending you a fond hello,         

Thank you for all your comments on the article in the 425 Magazine last month.  I sincerely appreciate your comments, compliments and recommendations.

This month, my photo above was taken on the Seattle to Bainbridge ferry.  This is a trip I highly recommend on a sunny day as the views are fantastic!  We were on our way to celebrate a birthday with friends and there were smiling faces throughout the day.

Wishing you well!

Glenna

1.  Facial features and their associated meaning – the philthrum.

The philthrum is the vertical indentation in the midline of the upper lip that extends down from the nasal septum.  It is also referred to as the infranasal depression. This area provides information on the ‘life energy’ a person has.  For instance, a wide philthrum indicates a vigorous and competent nature while a narrow philthrum is indicative of someone more timid and with the tendency to a late maturity.

For those of you who are following in Michael J. Lincoln’s book What’s In A Face? A Dictionary for Heart-Centered Face Reading you will notice that he uses the word ‘plithium’ in place of philthrum.) 

2.  More on facial features – the mouth.

Many people are drawn to the mouth as the first feature they see in a face.  The mouth reflects emotional and self-expression and also has to do with intake/output, accepting, receiving, communication and sharing.  The left side of the mouth displays the individual’s expectations and feelings about other people while their right half of the mouth shows their interpersonal tactics and strategies.  The mouth as a whole reflects how the person will be seen and reacted to by others.

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.

3.  Glenna’s reading of the February 2014 Face of the Month

Feb_2014_face_of_monthMany of you mentioned in your ‘read’ that you thought he looked aggressive and frightening. It is more accurate to use the words ‘detached’ or ‘disconnected’.  Beneath both eyes the characteristics of ‘grief bags’ indicate on-going and unresolved grief while the structure under his eyebrows shows a pattern of constant concern.  His face projects a very determined and somewhat stubborn nature.

This face photo shows the only person I know of who has received an ‘anti-social behaviour order’ (ASBO) from a UK court banning him from asking anyone in England and Wales for money, drink or food. While he has been charged with threatening behaviour, most of his numerous and persistent offending has involved begging.  What I find sad about this situation is the fact that the young man has considerable learning difficulties and mental health issues yet spends considerable periods of time incarcerated for offences of survival. 

There is no doubt his frequent and constant begging causes distress to law-abiding members of the communities he frequents, but this is a prime example where I feel community services that assist non-violent individuals with mental health issues would better serve this young man than repeatedly incarcerating him.  The very day after the ASBO was issued, he was arrested for reoffending and jailed for sixteen weeks.

4.  FAQ’s – “How do you remember what each facial feature and shape means?  When I am interviewing an individual and observe features that draw my attention, I cannot remember what they mean.” 

Glenna replies – “In all honesty, I don’t try to remember all the information and details presented in the What’s In A Face? A Dictionary for Heart-Centered Face Reading by Michael J. Lincoln – there is just too much information to memorize.  It helps to learn generally what each feature generally represents (as I have been doing in these newsletters), then refer to one of many books on facial features and their associated meaning for the nuances or different aspects of each feature (such as thin lips versus thick lips, small mouth versus large mouth, asymmetrical features, etc.)  I tend to make mental notes when a particular feature draws my attention and then research it as soon as I have a chance.  In this way, with time, application and practice, you will increase your understanding of each aspect of face reading.”
