Glyphs – the Symbolism in our Fingerprints
But what about the symbols which are PERMANENTLY INSCRIBED, engraved and imprinted upon our own bodies? If we believe a chamsa hand around our neck will ward off the evil eye, then surely the vortexes and labyrinths of the glyph (skin ridge) patterns which adorn our fingertips and palms (and soles of our feet) are influencing our very core energy?
Our fingerprint and palmar glyphs are pre-ordained, fixed and unchangeable cosmic imprints which receive and emit their own unique resonance. They may be seen as energy portals, thresholds through which we can better understand and express our authentic responses.
They come in four primary forms:
Arches – earth energy – look like simple hills
Loops – water energy – look like a droplet of water
Triradii – fire energy – three directions of ridges converge to look like three pronged propellers
Whorls – air energy – look like spirals or bull’s eyes
Together they compose six basic patterns: simple arches, ulnar and radial loops, tented arches, whorls, double loops and peacock’s eyes.
