Well, today we’re really exploring the power of the nose as an expression of identity and emotionality. Check out this nose! It’s broad, fleshy and even has a little redness around the nostrils – more on that later. Continue reading
Today we start exploring the powerful Nose!
As the feature that protrudes furthest out, the nose is the leader of our faces. It is the projection of our personality and “nose” where we’re heading. The size, shape and qualities of our nose say a great deal about our relationship with ourselves, with power, authority, action and will.
The nose you see here is an aquiline nose (from Latin, meaning “eagle-like”). It’s also known as a bent, Roman or hook nose. The presence of the bump, or bend, in the ridge, is the defining characteristic.
A person with this kind of nose values precision, balance and order. She would choose her words carefully, have a sharp set of kitchen knives, and select the right tool for the job. She would tend to look at both sides of an argument and find an effective compromise. Her home would be tidy. She would do well in tasks requiring precise measurement, calculation or adjustment. She’d make a good manager, organiser, scientist, accountant or technician.
Generally speaking, the more prominent the bend, the more strongly the person will display these personality traits. However, they may be balanced out by other facial features.
Do you know anyone with this feature in their nose? Ask them if this is true!
See you next week for another Friday Faces.
Being the great communicators of the face, the eyebrows express the degree of understanding between the head and the heart.
Eyebrows that are thick and bushy show a great deal of enthusiasm and vitality to pursue the things he’s passionate about. Depending on the degree of thickness, the person’s enthusiasm may tend toward aggression at times.
When eyebrow hairs grow in different directions, as seen in this photo, it shows inner conflict between a restless energy that likes to take on challenges, and a loss of vitality due to stress or overwhelm. This can cause difficulty in decision making, and may result in poor choices or irritability. This person would be well advised to listen to his heart and body, allowing his natural vitality to replenish on a regular basis.
Next Friday, I’ll share insights into the power of the nose!
Welcome back to Friday Faces! I’m thrilled to share with you another deep insight into our amazing humanity.
When an eye is set lower at the outer corner than at the inner corner, it shows a person who identifies more with love than with personal gain or power. His own ambitions tend to include others – whether family, a partner, community or the whole of humanity. There’s a sense that “we” is more important than “me”.
He has a sensitive heart that will readily empathise with others – he would often have the experience of “I feel you”. He prefers to see the best in people, and if not careful, may easily be taken in by a hard luck story.
His kind and generous nature wins him many friends, but may at times be to his own detriment, as his needs can get lost in consideration of the greater good. At times like these, he may feel sorry for himself and perhaps tend toward depression, especially if he focuses on what’s wrong with the world, rather than how much love is in life. He makes a loyal partner and likes a lasting relationship.
Healthy habits for this heart-centred person would be to remember to attend to his personal needs and develop a sound sense of self that is independent of his loved ones. Also to laugh long and often with friends and family.
Stay tuned for next week’s Friday Faces, when we’ll be looking at eyebrows!
Welcome to Friday Faces!
Each week I’ll be bringing you insights on the Psychosomatic meaning of specific facial characteristics.
This week’s feature: Inward Slanting Eye
When an eye is set higher at the outer corner than at the inner corner, it shows a person’s mental gaze tends to turn inward to his or her emotions. This person is drawn to look into the heart of things to discover their true nature.
She also tends to use her mind to evaluate her own heart. This can be very helpful for self-awareness, but if done too often or for too long, can lead to self-criticism. She may also tend to be critical or judgemental of others.
Meditation is helpful for this person to align her mind with a higher understanding. This will enhance soulful awareness and reduce egoic criticism.
You may be wondering, what if a person’s eye slants outward, instead of inward? Stay tuned for next week’s Friday Faces for the answer.
