Newsletter – Spring 2016

Skagit Valley tulips

Hello from the beautiful Pacific Northwest of the USA,

Whatever the season in your area of the world, I hope you are enjoying the joy of blooming gardens as we are here in Seattle.  Spring brings color, beauty, birdsong, healing, and many invitations to engage in the outdoor world.

Saying goodbye to a loved one as they leave this life is always painful.  So many emotions scroll across each face as each person involved feels so deeply.  Life is such a gift to be cherished, expressed, shared and enjoyed, then when the time comes, to resolve all unsettled issues and let go.  We were all fortunate to have many hours together to visit, reminisce, laugh, cry and to discover once again that love and friendship never end, even as life transforms.

I’d like to thank all care givers and hospice team members everywhere in the world as you are such dedicated and special individuals.  And for each of you who is also healing through loss, my heart is with you, too.

With my best wishes …

Glenna

  1. The mouthline

Where the lips come together is referred to as the mouthline.  Paying attention to this reveals information about the person’s style of communication and their level of willingness to engage with others.

  1. “Smirk de Triomphe”

You’ve seen this look. The mouthline is straight then curls up at one or both corners as in this month’s featured lower half of the face (see 5 below).  The individual with this mouthline is often extroverted with an appealing, attractive and engaging persona – the type that is the lead person for good causes.  It is important be aware of the fact that this is not a smile.  It reflects an intense violation of trust and boundaries and complexities worth paying close attention to.

Mar_2016_face_of_month

As mentioned in last month’s newsletter, thin lips generally indicate self-control.

In this photo, the upper lip is thinner than the lower lip, which projects an individual who is rational, logical, calculating, far-sighted and skilled in anticipating problems as well as opportunities.  This trait is also indicative of someone who is reserved and withholding or reluctant to share information, self-entertaining and self-contained.

For those studying personality programs consider PANG, ORD and Bootstrap (in social mask).

  1. FAQ’s – In your comments about each face of the month you add a line to those studying personality program. What do you mean by this?

One of the tools of facial communication or face reading that I teach is personality programs or profiling.  This skill is a powerful foundation in gaining a deep understanding of human “be-ings” and human “do-ings” (your ‘self’ included!).

Personality derives from many sources such as heredity, ethnic traditions, religious teachings, health factors, financial resources, neighborhood, school and work environments, gender role expectations and so forth.  However, the single most important factor in shaping personality is the family we grow up in.

During the earliest formative years, an individual develops strategies and skills in order to fit in with the expectations of the family and win parental approval.  Through a process of early emotional imprinting, based largely on facial expressions of primary caregivers, a child makes meaning or develops personal understanding of objects, events and situations. These patterns and beliefs often become our own “filters” through which we view, experience, interpret and engage with the world around us.

From this perspective the ‘self’ becomes an interpretative being, guided by meaning rather than an interpretative being guided by information.  Understanding how to see and accurately interpret personality traits improves healthy development, communication, coaching and investigative skills.
