Just face it. Face reading is mind reading.
A person’s character and personality traits are written on his face. The secret of the face is in the eyes. They are the main features that express everything that is going on within a person.
There is a saying in chinese art of face reading that a person’s facial features come from the heart.
Chinese face reading talks about the fortune and status at every point in his age. Since the past and the future exist in the Eternal Now, the information of a person’s past and future is revealed in the present.
Outer reflects the inner. Your face reflects your inner thoughts and beliefs. Your fate is determined by your beliefs and mindset. Your face does not determine your fate, it merely reflects it. This is the crucial truth that people overlook in face reading.
Even in physiognomy, some people have the attitude that their behaviour is control by their facial and bodily characteristics. They say, “Oh when I find myself doing this behavior, it is not me, it is my hair”. Statements like this are untrue and downright disempowering. It is attributing control to something else other than yourself.
It is thinking from a very low level of awareness and not understanding the ultimate cause of a thing. When you understand that your facial feature are only reflecting and not controlling your nature, you have the awareness that the control is with you.
Your facial features have a certain force that perpetuates your behavior, but that force was set in place by your original thoughts that created your face. But you can override that force by an opposing force of new thoughts and over time, your facial features will change and take on the new force.
It works just like habits or programs run by the subconscious mind. They have a force that perpetuates behavior, but when you consciously choose to change them, you will overide the preconditioned patterns and over time diminish them close to nothing or nothing. And you will establish a new pattern of behavior or characteristic which will be reflected by a change of your facial features.
Silvan Tomkins was a scientist who taught psychology at Princeton and Rutgers. Tomkins believed that faces, even the faces of horses, held valuable clues to inner emotions and motivations. He could walk into a post office, it was said, go over to Wanted posters, and just by looking at the mug shots, say what crimes the various fugitives had committed. He would watch the show “To Tell the Truth”, and without fail he could always pick out the people who were lying. He actually wrote the producer at one point to say it was too easy, and the man invited him to come to New York, go backstage and show his stuff.
Paul Ekman first encountered Tomkins in the early 1960’s. Ekman was then a young psychologist just out of graduate school, and he was interested in studying faces. Was there a common set of rules, he wondered, that governed the facial expressions that human beings made?
Tomkins visited Ekman at his laboratory in San Francisco. Ekman had tracked down a hundred thousand feet of film that had been shot by the virologist Carleton Gajdusek in the remote jungles of Paputa New Guinea. Some of the footage was of a tribe called the South Fore, who were a peaceful and friendly people. The rest was of the Kukukuku, a hostile and murderous tribe with a homosexual ritual in which preadolescent boys were required to serve as courtesans for the male elders of the tribe.
For six months, Ekman and his collaborator, Wallace Friesen, had been sorting through the footage, cutting extraneous scenes, focusing just on close-ups of the faces of the tribesmen, in order to compare the facial expressions of the two groups. Ekman set up the camera. Tomkins sat in the back. He had been told nothing about the tribes involved; all identifying context had been edited out.
Tomkins looked on intently, peering through his glasses. At the end, he went up to the screen and pointed to the faces of the South Fore. “These are a sweet, gentle people, very indulgent, very peaceful,” he said. Then he pointed to the faces of the Kukukuku. “This other group is violent, and there is lots of evidence to suggest homosexuality.”
Even today, a third of a century later, Ekman cannot get over what Tomkins did. “My God! Silvan, how on earth are you doing that?” Ekman said. “And he went up to the screen and, while we played the film backward, in slow motion, he pointed out the particular bulges and wrinkles in the face that he was using to make his judgment.
That’s when he thought to himself, ‘I’ve got to unpack the face.’ It was a gold mine of information that everyone had ignored. This guy could see it, and if he could see it, maybe everyone else could, too.
