Newsletter – April 2014

Skagit Valley tulipsHello once again,

Now that spring is officially here in this part of the world, we are pleased to have a few days of less rain and the beauty of flowers and trees blooming. Hope it is also beautiful where you are.

Local and international news showed so many tormented faces – the relatives of those missing in the Malaysia Airlines flight MH370; family, friends and rescuers still at the scene of the massive Oso mudslide just north of Seattle, citizens of the Ukraine uncertain of what will happen next, civil war continuing in Syria as well as on-going conflict in many parts of our world. Yet we also see in many of the faces strength, generosity, loyalty, hope and love. The human spirit is strong. I trust that each of us embraces life and loved ones with gratitude for each moment shared.

Wishing you all the best … always…
Glenna

1. Facial features and their associated meaning – lip characteristics.
Lips are the instrument of speech and communication and also are expressive of the individual’s willingness to participate in the world around them. The upper lip reflects the nature and amount of output to the world (including their capacity to love) while the lower lip indicates the person’s orientation to receiving, their intake and their capacity or need for love (and to be loved).

2. More on facial features – mouthline.

The line created at the place the lips come together is the mouthline I am referring to here. It is reflective of the person’s willingness to be a reciprocal, involved and vulnerable participant with other people. The mouthline also indicates the individual’s style of communication – for instance a straight mouthline indicates a person who is a good communicator, realistic and pragmatic attitude of a determined individual who is unlikely to budge, is not easily confused or distracted. If there is a combination of a straight mouthline and thick lips, the person is prone to be reserved, resolved and tend to focus on physical sustenance as their support system where emotional support may be absent. However, a straight mouthline with thin lips telegraphs a person who tends to be intensely self-contained and aloof.

Maria_Von_Trapp

So many of you commented on the joy and wisdom that shines from this beautiful face, even though her ‘social mask’ side of her face is much smoother than the ‘real self’ side. There are so many more laughter lines around her left or private eye. Her responsibility lines are deep on both sides of her face and she was much more private than many may have initially thought, if only observing the ‘social mask’. Maria Von Trapp died recently in Vermont, at the age of 99. The Sound of Music was based on her family story.

For those studying personality programmes: How do you feel the characteristics of the ORD, PANG, and Bootstrap programmes combine here?

4. FAQ’s

““Glenna, I hope it’s okay to ask you this type of question – I recently met a fella whom I thought was really nice. I applied all the face reading tools I learned in class. However, I was later surprised and quite taken aback to learn that he takes drugs on a regular basis, becoming neglectful and uncaring – with the possibility of being violent and aggressive. Is it possible that using drugs for three years has altered or made his face more mask like – or do you think I just didn’t look hard enough? I really don’t want to make the same mistake twice, and want to know if I could have prevented it, and if I missed something.”

Glenna repliesWow – that’s a really big question! Remember that no matter how skilled you get at applying face reading (or any other type of) tools, they are still only a guide or a ‘map of the territory’. I encourage using face reading tools as a means to encourage exploring and asking questions when we meet people, not to pre-determine who they are or what they will be like. Often when we are attracted to another person, we do focus on the traits we want to see. Therefore, in getting to know anyone, it is best to take time and keep an open mind. With time and practice, it is possible to observe underlying emotions and energies such as anger, aggression, hostility, as well as contentment, good humour, etc. For that, practice ‘reading’ the transitory as well as the deeply etched emotions in people’s faces. Feel free to practice on the Face of the Month archive files and let me know your thoughts. Thank you for writing . . . let me know if this is helpful for you at all! Best wishes!

If this is your first visit to my website or Newsletter – welcome to you.

Each month I select a facial photograph and invite new and veteran ‘Face Readers’ to use their skills to identify the facial features of the “Face of the Month’.

Some of my readers enter into conversation with me at glenna@glennatrout.com

Next month I will provide my interpretation.

Good luck and I look forward to your interpretation too.

Until next month, all best wishes,

Glenna
