Your Questions
A truly devoted Amazing Face Reader comes up with questions every once in a while. Asking me a question via e-mail is the easiest thing to do and I would enjoy hearing from anyone of you and promise to respond.
Workshop Update: Time is running out to sign up for our July workshop. We have almost reached out class limit. The next workshop will not be until 2014.
Call 682-365-5298 if interested.
Class Update:
 Our next evening class will be posted in the website and in our next Newsletter.
Flash Card Fun:
Meanwhile, we hope you are using your flash cards to better understand every person you meet. Even children can easily learn to use the flash cards and why not have some fun this summer discovering what friends and family's faces say? Why not have a family evening of Amazing Face Reading.

If asked what I like most about what I do, my response is easy and straight forward. I most enjoy the connection face reading gives me with people from literally all over the world. I have been quite fortunate to journey to many fascinating and even exotic places, but I don't have to go any farther than my computer to see people's faces, read them over the phone or SKYPE with those in foreign countries. 
It is difficult for me to put in words the gratitude I feel. Our friends from around the world have helped us tremendously in our ongoing study of physiognomy (face reading). What is most helpful are the questions that come up about the human face. You can't put your finger on your face without covering up something important. However, I am still discovering the meaning of some facial features and questions from others helps develop the science. This newsletter is about inquires I have had in the recent past.
Questions from the Caribbean
dark eye

Our friend Joe DeLord writes ,"Why do I find the girl in the picture with the darker colored left iris so irresistibly attractive?


The answer may actually lie in the "eye of the beholder". For humans, faces are so critical to our awareness that we have evolved brain structures to catalogue and interpret them. However, the answer to this question may actually be the difference between the way our right and left brain hemispheres process information. The right side of our brain is connected to, and controls, the left side of the body and the reverse is true for the left hemisphere.


 The right hemisphere of our brain is the seat of our connection with others. It is the source of empathy, compassion and even love. When a feature on a person's face attracts our attention to the left side of a face, mirror neurons create an instant copy in our own brain. Of course, mirror neurons make an instant copy of everything we see. But Joe, by giving his attention to the left side of the girl's face was engaging the right side of his brain and thus his emotional response. This is also why the classic or stereotypical beauty mark seen on a cheek is almost always on the left cheek.  

Questions from Kathmandu, Nepal

Preeti Agrawal writes, "Wow! You are fabulous. I was just wondering, what feature of mine, made you say I have an unusual perspective? A lot of things that I do make so much sense to me after you told me about that."


Earlier I had written to Preeti, "You have an unusual perspective, just like the great American Indian chief Sitting Bull in that you can see things that others miss... which is why he was a medicine man before he was a chief."


In face reading our physical structure or physiology, can often affect our internal perspective or psychology. It is not hard for us to understand that a person with poor eyesight might miss something that a person with 20/20 vision would see. But, in face reading everything counts. The feature that I was writing to Preeti about was the way the focus of her left eye is slightly inward, just like Chief Sitting Bull as seen in the back of the Amazing Face Reading book.

A Question from New South Wales, Australia

Our friend from Australia, Linda Thackary, asked how we would interpret a very deep vertical line found in the middle of the bottom lip which almost separates the bottom lip into perfect halves. This was our answer to Linda even though we have never personally seen this feature on a face.


In the June newsletter we discussed how the bottom lip is associated with the expression of our external world experience, while the top lip is concerned with internal feelings and can be seen as more reflective of right brain functions. The bottom lip is more reflective of our relationship with facts, data, words, time and money. It is more closely aligned with left brain functions. Yet, we also know that the division of the face from top to bottom is essential in reading the features. Our left side reflects our personal life, family and even childhood while the right side pertains to our business side and how we take ourselves out into the world.


In our considered response to Linda's question we reasoned: The bottom lip is about facts...but there are facts associated with our work life and facts associated with our personal life. Many of us may blend the facts and may discuss family situations with work partners or we may present issues from work to our spouse after a hard day at work. With a deep line in the middle of the bottom lip, is it possible that this is a person who is very careful about not blending his work and personal life? He may compartmentalize his life to an extreme that has created this line.


As we explained to Linda, the most important part of the answer is not telling a person, "this is what that line means" but rather discussing the line and what it could mean based on what we already know. Perhaps the analysis will "feel right" to the person being read or they may respond that the sharp separation between personal and work life does not apply to them. Eureka! Conversation and connection between two people, with an attempt to understand someone better, is always the goal of any face reading. 

What is Real?

In some earlier experiments, scientist discovered that light acted like both a wave and a particle. If they looked for waves they found waves. If they designed experiments to look for particles they found particles. But the most important discovery had nothing to do with light. It had everything to do with reality. Reality depends on the type of attention we give it. In later experiments with particle physics, scientist discovered the same phenomenon...the observer and the observed are both affecting each other and creating the final outcome that we call reality. In short, reality is created by the type of attention we give it.


The type of attention given by left and right hemispheres of the brain are so different that they create very different realties. The left brain's perspective is achieved by paring things down, by selection and negation, and by abstraction. The left brain creates a symbolic reality...words, time and money are good examples. It assumes that it is correct. It likes to be in control. It tends to dismisses anything new that is not already within its space of familiarity.


In human interactions, trying to understand another person from only the left brain's perspective, putting pieces together to make a whole, creates a reality much like Mary Shelley's Frankenstein monster. This is why people with Asperger's syndrome, who are extremely left brain dominant, have such a difficult time in personal interactions. They see the pieces but not the whole and therefore have a difficult, if not impossible, time achieving any sort of empathy with the other.


Many features on the face can give us clues as to whether an individual views reality from either a left or right brain perspective or whether, like most of us, they are constantly using both. Much of the conflict and miscommunication in our personal interactions arises from an inability to appreciate the other person's reality. Face reading allows us to step back when there is a communication problem and evaluate the reality of the other person. Is their reality a left brain or right brain creation? In other words can you "feel" what I am getting at, or do you just "think" you know what I am saying ? By understanding the other person's reality we can truly connect.
