Greetings from Belgium

We have once again returned to this gorgeous part of the world…how lucky we are! Classes in Antwerp were a joy, thank you to each of you who attended, participated and shared so much with the rest of us!

For those of you who have not signed up for the series of classes in Ipswich England, I invite you to do so quickly. Details are in the sidebar of scheduled courses.

Daily we receive emails on new face reading websites to check out.

Some of the research being done in this field is truly fascinating. Check out the BBC Science: Human Body & Mind page on the web: www.bbc.co.uk/science/humanbody/mind/articles/emotions/faceperception1.shtml for an update on the work by Professor David Perrett of the Perceptions Lab at St. Andrews University, Scotland. The links on that page are worth a look, too.

A word of caution, though, many of the websites I have started to open come with a ‘high risk’ warning for viruses. Enjoy your explorations but please remain aware and be sure to use a high-quality computer security program.

Please do keep in touch. I enjoy learning how you are using each of the face reading tools and the results you are achieving!

Cheers …

Glenna

1. Facial features and their associated meaning – mouth size.

When observing the size of a person’s mouth (in proportion to the size of their entire face) we can get a sense of how that person relates to others as well as their personal sense of evaluation, acceptance, esteem, abundance and their moral orientation.

You may wish to learn more in the What’s In A Face? A Dictionary for Heart-Centered Face Reading by Michael Lincoln (f.k.a. Narayan Singh).  This reference dictionary of facial features and their associated meaning can be ordered through http://www.talkinghearts.net

2. More on facial features – mouth irregularities

Mouth irregularities reflect an imbalance or distortion in that individual’s process of relating to people.

As an example of this, when one side of the mouth is higher than the other (if not as the result of an injury, illness or surgery) it indicates an imbalance or discrepancy between what they project in social situations as opposed to what they feel on a personal level. (Remember that the person’s right side of their face is their ‘social mask’ while their left side reveals their ‘real self’.)

3. Glenna’s reading of the April 2014 Face of the Month (www.facingfacts.info)

April_face_of_monthMary Barra is a woman is under immense pressure.

The first thing I notice when looking at this photo is exhaustion, sadness and overwhelm in and around her eyes. While there is evidence in her left (private) face of grim determination to preserve a neutral expression, her right (‘social mask’) face projects despair. She is very determined, competent, perceptive, practical, results-oriented, creative and committed.

Under pressure, she may find that she has also been isolated or detached, naïve, and/or too quick in taking specific actions to avoid disapproval.

As a visionary, she possesses immense internal resources.

4. FAQ’s – “What do you think of the face reading apps for the smart phones?

Glenna replies – “To be honest, I have not tried these specific apps with a smart phone.   I do like the idea of tools that would assist in the interpretation of facial expression if they can be accurate, especially for individuals with forms of autism that inhibit communication due to misreading or misunderstanding facial communication. My concern is that facial expressions and nuance can be so complex that mathematical formulas will not pick up the human element that trained observation and insight may well do. If these apps encourage individuals to ask more questions about what s/he is seeing, feeling, and doing it is, in my opinion, a good thing. What is cause for concern, however, is when a tool is designed or used to quickly label something or someone without due consideration, empathy and respect.”
