The Power of Face Reading – Your Face Never Lies
This post on week 306 is about one of my favorite and most fascinating subjects I have studied. When I lived in China I was introduced to Face Reading and anytime I could I would go to learn from the readers Wow, it is like they know your whole story and of your ancestors as well. A well tuned professional face reader can describe you and your ancestors so well that it may make you feel that he or she has been involved in your life on a daily basis. It is amazing, The accuracy and finesse of the system.
You may know someone whom people adore. Most likely this person isn’t wrinkle-free and doesn’t have perfect features according to the general model of what is perfect. This is the blueprint of our feelings and our life mapping our experiences and the day to day history of our lives. I notice that when people get plastic surgery in a few months they started to go back to how they looked before. That inspired me to do some research on the source of this fact and I remember my studies on Face Reading and Bingo! There it was, we make all these lines. Droopiness and all those details that we start resenting and disliking, but if we get to know why it is happening our perception shifts to the understanding that if we made it happen we can change it, Chinese medicine teaches all the organs involved in Skin, Muscles, and basically the whole body, are fully interconnected, I notice that when I teach this subject in my classes people are very surprised. It is amazing to me that most people don’t have a conscious relationship that we are fully connected mind, body, and spirit. For the most part, everyone is running around so fast and the common denominator is I don’t have time!!!! So when we are in our heads all the time it is no wonder we feel that we get up and function all day with just our head. Well, sweet dear readers that definitely is not it and if you wish to change your physiognomy this post can help you along, I love to be able to understand how my whole system works and many miracles happen in our bodies minute to minute. Please enjoy and share so many people can benefit from it.
Face Reading With Joey Yap
She was a perfect sample of the radiance, kindness, and compassion that read through her beauty.
Yet when he or she walks into a room, everyone’s heart just soars and is turning head time. What they are responding to is the information that radiates out from that individual’s face and body language. When people are living according to their true nature, everyone finds them beautiful.
With that being said, here we are posting a few facts about face reading there is so much more to it, we will continue to share with you in the future, here you can research more with the links provided.
What certain areas of the face mean
Chinese face reading is as relevant today as it has been in the past and its use is definitely cross-cultural. We all have a blend of elements and all faces reflect part of our nature pattern. Face reading first started in China during the 6th century BC, it was not affiliated with any religion. It is thought that they were probably Taoist shamans from rural areas such as Szechwan who specialized in non-traditional arts. By 220 BC, the art of face reading was established in Chinese life and classic tales, such as the Golden Scissors and Bamboo Chronicles, were written at this time.
Also, there were professional face readers during this time that combined the roles of priest, astrologer, and counselor. They were well-educated men with great compassion for humanity. The Chinese simply understood the concept that the face represents the story, energies, health, and fortune of a person so to live in harmony with the prevailing energies of the five elements, yin and yang, and the seasons they dedicated much time to the study of Face Reading. This wisdom has seen a huge resurgence in the West during the past 20 years with the growth of acupuncture, Chinese herbal medicine, Feng Shui and Qi Gong.
The Principles of Face Reading: Chart from The Joey Yap Store
The starting principles of face reading that we are here discussing are the cosmic energies of the five elements and yin and yang. The elements are clear symbols and they represent qualities of energy within each person that are reflected in the face. A very elaborate physical, psychological and emotional profile can be constructed, incorporating the energies of the features, the life points of the face, the three divisions from top to bottom (forehead, midface and lower face) which show the nervous, circulatory and digestive systems and the facial zones which represent the internal organs is pretty accurate, to say the least.
Each individual face is a map of the past, present, and future. The past is described as our inherited constitution, starting with our mother’s pregnancy, our childhood, and adolescence, with each difficulty or every support in the family, and our very early years as we start out in the world. The present reflects our health at the precise time of the reading.
Coco Chanel said: Inappropriate diet, persistent negative emotions, drugs, toxins and stress all contribute to lines, congestion, and colors on the face.
With that said the facial zones affected are related to the internal organs under stress like the rest of our physical wellbeing. In the same way that the feet are a microcosm of the whole body in Reflexology, so the face shows the inner health status and the person behind the persona. The future is not predestined in the Chinese philosophy: acts of compassion can definitely lengthen one’s life, and taking greater care with health can resolve possible future challenges. Sometimes destiny and the ups and downs of life can be improved by facial surgery? Correcting squints help one’s fortunes during the years 35-40. However, nose jobs, which expose the nostrils and shorten the nose can affect the end of the 40s by creating many physical challenges.
Our Face and the areas representing our organ connection
Here are some examples of various shapes and qualities of face reading:
What Eye Shapes Mean
What Face Shapes Mean
Charts from The Joey Yap Store
These shapes of faces are known as water-shaped faced people. They have a plump more round and fleshy face. They are known to be sensitive and caring. And the individuals that possess them are thought to have strong sexual fantasies. If you are looking forward to a long-term and stable relationship, these people are proved to be the right choice.
The long, thin face is called in Face Reading the wood shape face. These people may have a more muscular or athletic physique. They are thought to be very practical, methodical and tend to be more overworked for the most part. They have weighed along with narcissism and most likely have problematic relationships.
These shape types are usually related to a thin body and with a definitely intellectual persuasion. They are considered to be very creative and thought to have a very fiery temperament according to Chinese face readers.
These types of faces are known as the metal shape face. These people are thought to have an intelligent, highly analytical and decisive mind. The face shape is associated with an aggressive and dominating nature personality.
Here these types of faces signal some variety: they tend to dominate but with less force, often they get their way in politics, business, sports, being always balanced, sometimes ambitious, sometimes melancholic is a very large range.
Oval Shaped Face:
Expresses a character is somewhat balanced, sweet, even charming, in which case those individuals are often best diplomats, but also able to duplicate, women are often outstanding artists. Sometimes they can be dangerous, but temperamentally very are weak, and also often they are weaker in physical strength, in many cases underactive.
Face Shape and Profile
The Broad face shape:
Having a broad face shape means that the height and width of the face are very close to each other in length. People with a broad face is confident by nature unless for an unforeseen reason he has lost his self-confidence somewhere through his life. When we talk about confident by nature, what we mean is that he’s usually secure and confident about doing things for the first time; meaning he’s fine with new experiences. This type of person has got good influencing abilities; he usually has a relatively larger space distance between his eyes (and has a very high tolerance) because of his broad face. This type of person may not be interested in small details but would be rather interested in the bigger picture or the full view. For example, when telling him about a car accident, don’t bother telling him about the car colors because he wouldn’t be interested the details are not important to him, he may not be even interested in the car types involved he wants to get to the point. From these qualities, we conclude that someone like that would make a good manager; that’s why you would notice how most managers are of the broad-faced type.
Thin face Type:
The thin face is very easily noticed because it appears to be longer than most normal faces. People with thin faces have faces that are much higher in length than in its width. A thin-faced person is more confident by experience and not by nature, that means that when trying something new, they may feel afraid or anxious. If they have a small eye distance too, then they may be interested in small details. The main challenge concerning thin-faced people is fear; fear is a very big part of their lives and this may make them stick to a certain comfort zone and curb their adventurous side completely.
People with round faces are very friendly by nature, and they like the social gatherings and for the most part, provide nice company. When intending to ask for help, try to choose the round-faced type because they may be friendlier than the other people around.
Types of foreheads
This person follows a progressive style in his thinking; he can’t jump to the third point without first knowing the second. Sometimes he is misunderstood as a child and thought of as dumb, but in fact, he may be very intelligent; it’s just his progressive style of thinking that needs to be taken into consideration. This person may not have the fastest reflex action response; if he drops something, he may not be able to catch it before it reaches the ground. He may have problems working under pressure as he needs more time to think progressively; that may make him lose control in the last ten minutes of exams.
The sloped forehead (The fast responder):
That person builds conclusions fast, to the extent that he may interrupt you many times when talking because he keeps on guessing what are you about to say. This person may get bored talking to someone with a straight forehead because of the speed difference between them. The response of such a person is very fast, and that’s why you tend to find most football and basketball players with sloped foreheads, you’re also most likely to notice how players with straight foreheads aren’t that good because of their slow responses, and again I repeat, this is not related to intelligence at all. One final thing about such people is that they are fast decision-makers, which may cause them many problems.
The curved forehead (The creative):
This person is very creative, just notice how the forehead of those who study fine arts; you will notice how most them have curved foreheads. That person would hate restrictions and rules; he likes to use his imagination, and would probably hate math and accounting but excel in arts. When the forehead is curved and occupying a big section of the head, that person may tend to be very intelligent or even a genius. You’d be safe asking that person for help within need of a creative solution to any problem you’re facing.
A person with a pointed chin is a stubborn person just like the one with long front teeth. Having both features tends to make the person very stubborn. He has a very fierce inner resistance that can be triggered by being pushed. When dealing with such a person, you must depend on your flexibility because pushing against him will yield no result.
A square-chinned person is a challenger; he always challenges destiny by standing up tall upon falling, he never gives up until he reaches what he wants. He is usually very competitive and considers everything, even sports, as a challenge rather than look at the fun part of it. This person has the ability to point out the pros and cons of any issue, something that makes him a very good consultant and a debate over. To get along with him, avoid igniting his fighting spirit and take his opinions into considerations.
The small chin:
Having a small chin is usually associated with having a pointed chin. In face reading, whenever the facial features are relatively smaller to those of normal people, then the person is a sensitive person. People with small chins and small facial features are very sensitive to criticism and overwhelming life events. Criticize those people and they will hate you, shout at them and they may not approach you again. In order to get along with a sensitive person try to be more nurturing than usual
People with protruding cheekbones leave an impression of respect and presence. Protruding cheek bones, in face reading, represent courage and adventure loving. A person with protruding cheekbones never escapes a fight; he is full of courage and has fewer problems with the idea of taking risks or trying something new. He is not bound by a certain comfort zone or definite habits; he just follows his instincts and accepts new challenges. This person also loves to travel and explore new places.
We are not born with facial lines; they are developed through our lives. Lines can reflect a certain personality trait as we will see below:
Two vertical lines between the eyes:
This person is very hard to himself, he rarely takes the time to celebrate his achievements; he may push himself to work until he falls down.
More than two vertical lines between the eyes:
This person is usually very idealistic, he tends to be a perfectionist; he wants everything to be done perfectly and everything to be in its place. If that person is your manager, then you may be in deep trouble because meeting his perfectionism could be very hard.
Horizontal lines across the nose:
Some people have horizontal lines crossing over the top of their nose. These people are overly responsible; probably have been given lots of responsibility when children. These people rarely think about having fun
Some people have two lines below their nose and on either side of their mouth. Those are called grief lines because they appear when that person is sad for prolonged periods; a loss of someone close may result in the appearance of these lines
Balance and proportion are important in face reading
Balance and proportion are important in face reading, as in Chinese paintings. There are needs for harmony between the mountains (the yang element, represented in the face by the bones) and the rivers, (the yin element which is the soft tissue). Although a face may be considered beautiful by society, in face reading terms it may be too yin (upturned nose, large wide mouth, eyes too far apart, thin eyebrows). Many models have this look. In our language we have many expressions to describe character traits: pay through the nose, two-faced, keeping one’s nose clean, chinless wonder? We may have forgotten how these came into a language in the first place, the mouth relates to communication, and the chin signifies determination, ambition, and practicality among other traits. So, face reading can be used, sum up a person’s energies, to get a health read-out, to assess character, fortune, and other a tributes to help gain self-knowledge and to plan for good health.
There are numerous ways to read a face in Chinese physiognomy: 3 Quarters, 8 Trigrams, 108 Spots, examining the shapes, the colors, the wrinkles, and the moles, just to name a few. A master of face reader usually employs the combination of several techniques to gain multiple perspectives and perform cross-examination.
One example of what lines on the face mean
Following is a brief introduction to the 12 Houses method.
1. Fortune House (Fude Gong)
It gives an overview of your general fortune trend. An ideal Fortune House should be round, full and smooth with no
visible marks, lines or scars. Flaws in these areas reflect challenges in your life, which can be in the form of poor health, distressful relationships or money troubles.
2. Parents House (Fumu Gong)
It is associated with Heaven Luck; in this regard, its state is quite a testimony to the situation that your parents were in
and your relationship with them. A forehead that is wide, round and shining speaks of a good family inheritance, a comfortable upbringing, and early achievement, while a small, bony or disfigured one illustrates an uneasy childhood.
3. Career House (Guanlu Gong)
Again, being broad, round and smooth is the basic criteria to identify a good Career House. If on the top of that, you also
have prominent cheekbones and protruding eyebrows, you shall have a great chance to achieve a great success in your chosen field.
4. House of Travel (Qianyi Gong)
If it is in any way disfigured with scars or deep lines, you might be better off staying put. Furthermore, jobs or businesses involving transportation, tourism or import/export are, understandably, not your best choice.
5. Life House (Ming Gong)
The key to your fortune is deposited here. Naturally, being smooth and shiny is ideal, which suggests a trouble-free life
journey. If it is receded, dimpled or scared, or there are permanent horizontal lines between the brows, or eyebrows meet in the middle, you may face a bumpy road ahead.
6. House of Siblings (Xiongdi Gong)
Eyebrows and the areas directly above them represent and it also oversees your relationship with your friends and
colleagues. The state of your hair has a direct connection to the physical conditions of your parents at the time when you were conceived, which means it has a lot to do with your genetic make-ups. Brows that are dark, thick, long, smooth, orderly and located high above eyes indicate a healthy hormone level that gives rise to affection, calmness, and courage. If they look sparse, thin, pale, short, or chaotic, or too close to eyes, or marked with a scar, you could be tormented by your own physical or emotional states.
7. Assets House (Tianzhai Gong)
Your eyes portray your intelligence and temperament, and the very quality of these dispositions plays an important role in your asset acquisition endeavor. Good Asset Houses are constituted with eyes that are long with large pupils and clear whites, and up-eyelids that are broad and full. Recessed or narrow eyelids exhibit impatience. If the whites are colored with red streaks, and worse, if the streaks pass through a pupil, you should brace yourself for challenges in reference to your financial concerns.
8. House of Marriage (Qiqie Gong)
Being full and smooth in appearance indicates a happy marriage. A receded house, however, rings a bell on extra-marital affairs. If the area bears visible spots, scars, black moles or messy lines, your marriage could have challenges due to some unscrupulous conduct.
9. House of Children (Ernu Gong)
This area is closely related to the cerebellum and also governs your love and sex life, so again, being full and round is better than being flat or receded. Dim moles or slant lines across the area are especially undesirable, suggesting some challenges regarding your own sex life or your children’s future development.
10. Health House (Jie Going)
If the House is broken or marked with horizontal lines, or if it is stained with spots, marks or discoloration, you shall pay extra attention to your health, especially your digestive system.
11. Wealth House (Caibo Gong)
A nose that has a high and straight bridge, big and round tip, full and fleshy wings, and invisible nostrils, not only indicates sound physical health, a positive mental attitude, also denotes success in career and abundance in wealth. On the other hand, a nose that is low, or crooked, pointed, or narrow, bony, or with a contoured bridge, upturned tip, visible nostrils, reveal a problematic personality, a troublesome financial situation or a difficult career path. If blood vessels are clearly visible or have a dim blue color tone the surface, pay attention to blood pressure and heart health. When a nose turns bloody red, which is dubbed Fire in Lounge in Chinese physiognomy, it should be viewed as a too excessive warning sign.
12. Popularity House (Nupu Going)
This House rules your relationship with your colleagues, subordinates or younger generations, and foretells your situation in your old age. When they are round and full, you can expect to enjoy your popularity among your followers. But if it sharps off, or appears crooked or boney, you probably should reconsider your dream of being a politician. And what’s more, you’d better prepare for self-support during old age.
Marks, spots, scars on, and even shapes of your face can change over time, meaning your fate can alter through the years. You can utilize your Man Power (your attitudes – good deeds, better learning, and hard work) and the Earth Power (your environment – favorable Feng Shui) to neutralize the Heaven Power (your time of birth – what you have inherited from your parents and your previous lives). Ultimately, you are the real creator of your own fate. When you change your heart, you change your face; when you change your face, you change your fate.
