  1. Did you know that our eyes are made up of over 200 million working parts?

Eyes are one of the most intricately structured parts of our body, second only to the brain in complexity.  Human eyes can distinguish nearly 10 million different colors and, given the right conditions, can see the light of a candle at a distance of fourteen miles.  While the highest quality professional digital camera lens have a resolution of around 80 megapixel, if the human eye were a digital camera it would have 576 megapixels.  Keep this in mind as we use our eyes to observe the details as we study the faces of others, how much more are we actually capable of seeing, interpreting and understanding?

    2.  Our eyes have small blind spots while our perceptions frequently have huge blind spots

There are no photoreceptor cells on the optic disc where the optic nerve connects with the retina and this creates a blind spot in our vision.  For most of us, though, both of our eyes working together cover these blind spots.  At those times when we become set in our beliefs and resist being open to new and different points of view, our perception can remain filled with blind spots.  Remember from past posts the importance of our conscious and unconscious thoughts in interpreting information taken in through the eyes.  An important part of learning the tools of face reading is also learning to view and understand self and others with broader perspectives and deeper compassion.

One of my favorite quotes was shared by Dr. Ajay in England – ‘What the mind doesn’t know, the eyes cannot see.’

  1. Glenna’s reading of the July 2015 Eyes of the Month (www.glennatrout.com)

NENA_Kim

These beautiful eyes are open, friendly and vulnerable, revealing a sense of tiredness and overwhelm, shy humour, a generous spirit, high integrity, creativity, wisdom and quiet caution.

For those studying personality programs those visible in just the eyes is predominantly Bootstrap.

 

  1. FAQ’s – “Does culture play a role in face reading?”

Glenna replies  Absolutely!  The culture we grow up in shapes our beliefs, behaviors, norms and comfort levels.  It also plays an important role in influencing how we experience and tolerate anyone or anything that is perceived to be different from our sense of ‘normal’. Many of us experience ‘different’ as uncomfortable or as something we need to judge as ‘right’ or ‘wrong’ / ‘good’ or ‘bad’.  At the same time, many of us view ‘different’ as an invitation to explore, learn new perspectives and experience the world in new ways. To quote Mary Englebreit, “The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes but in having new eyes.”

Throughout this year I invite readers to carefully study the ‘eyes of the month’ and e-mail me their comments. My interpretation of the eyes and a full picture of the subjects face is featured in the next months Newsletter.

I welcome your ideas, thoughts and comments at glenna@glennatrout.com

If you live in the Calgary I very much look forward to meeting you and sharing my face reading expertise in October.

Until next time,
