Reading Joe Biden’s Face

By Jean Haner

One thing you might easily notice in this picture of Vice President Biden is that his left eye is held more widely open than his right eye. This isn’t just a matter of the camera catching him in the moment of making an awkward expression. In looking at many photos of him, I notice that his left eye is often held more open. So what could this mean?

Let’s start out by looking at what the eyes reveal:

Eyes
In face reading, your eyes give many messages, but some of the most important are how you feel about communication. First, they show how open you are in communicating what you’re feeling deep inside. Second, they indicate how open you are to taking in what someone else is communicating to you.

If someone’s eyes are narrowed in general, it means they’re not so comfortable talking about their inner feelings. And when it comes to being open to hearing about your feelings, that’s also not an experience they naturally seek!

If someone’s eyes are held wide open in general, they really value expressing themselves. They think everyone should be communicating what they’re thinking and feeling and can’t understand why anyone wouldn’t want to have open conversations about what’s going on inside.

A classic example of this is a couple where the man has naturally narrowed eyes and the woman has naturally widely held eyes. She wants to talk about their relationship and he just wants to watch the game: “We talked about our relationship last year!”

However, one of Mr. Biden’s eyes is held wide and the other held narrowed. So we need to look at what messages the right eye gives compared to the left eye:

Left and Right Sides of the Face
Basically, the right half of someone’s face is said to be the “public” side – the information that person is willing to share with the outside world. The left half of the face is the “private” side – where you can read their inner feelings, what they’re really going through inside.

But face reading is not a cookie cutter system. It’s about seeing how all aspects of someone’s life experience is reflected in their face. If you’re evaluating the meaning of someone’s eyes, you can’t make conclusions until you also look at the rest of the face to discover details that might be affecting what the eyes signify.

Grief Lines
With Mr. Biden’s face, there are lines on his face that show he carries a deep and old grief. This could very well have to do with the death of his wife and daughter and the severe injuries to his sons in a terrible car accident back in the 1970s.

So his narrow right eye actually means that he’s keeping that grief private and not burdening the rest of the world with it.

Rapport
His wider left eye is something I often see in people who are public figures or who work with other people on a deep level, such as doing therapy or healing work. This kind of eye means he’s taking in a lot of information about you while he’s talking with you, but he’s doing this privately, so you’re not made uncomfortable.

It actually comes from a genuine place of wanting to “read” you so that he can establish rapport and understand where you’re coming from, to take in what you’re communicating to him.

So the stories about Biden riding the train to work back and forth each day and talking to constituents makes sense. He really does want to hear from people and he’s also not going to make them listen to him go on and on about himself.

Balding
What some people don’t know about Vice President Biden is that he was balding but got hair plugs to restore his hairline.

In Chinese face reading, when someone balds from the front hairline backwards, it actually is associated with a certain personality type, called the “Fire” personality.

The Fire person is warm and affectionate, and tends to love connecting with people. They have a positive, optimistic nature and spread good feelings wherever they go. They often have a good sense of humor, love to have fun with people, and most of all, they love to talk!

A Fire person is also fast. That means they learn quickly, they think fast, and they’re often high-speed talkers. And this is where the problem can come in. They don’t always take the time to think before they speak. They go so fast, they can say things they wouldn’t have if they’d just paused to consider the impact of their words.

And we’ve certainly seen examples of this in Mr. Biden’s behavior!

Not all Fire people have this problem. If a Fire person’s system is in balance, they’ll still think and speak quickly but usually will be able to discern the impact of their words before they leave their lips.

But because Mr. Biden changed his natural baldness, he set his system off balance slightly, resulting in more frequent communication gaffes. If he hadn’t interfered with his hairline receding, this wouldn’t be happening.

It’s not a major problem in terms of his suitability as a leader; but it does help us understand why President Obama has been inconvenienced at times by the words that have tumbled out of Biden’s mouth!

Reading Barak Obama’s Face

Reading Barak Obama’s Face

Reading Barak Obama’s Face

By Jean Haner

I read President Obama’s face during the 2008 campaign and saw many qualities that I’ve since seen demonstrated during his presidency. But I also noticed a few characteristics that could cause people to have misperceptions about what to expect from him, and I’ve seen these come true as well.

I’ll discuss these below, as well as two other important things: 1) A change to his face that I’ve noticed since he became president; and 2) What he needs in order to get elected.

Before I get into the details, I need to make sure you understand my approach: The evaluations I’m doing of each candidate are objective, simply based on what face reading says about their personal characteristics. There is no veiled effort here to push any agenda or make negative or positive judgments.

Chinese face reading is an ancient branch of Chinese medicine, and is thousands of years old. Basically, it’s a science about recognizing patterns. There are patterns in your face – for example, the size and shape of your features, and any wrinkles or markings that develop; complex details that can be read to reveal the deeper pattern of who you are inside.

Ears
With President Obama’s face, one of the first things many people notice is that his ears stick out! In face reading, this indicates a highly independent spirit, someone who thinks for himself, and is less likely than most people to respond to pressure to conform.

Hairline
His hairline goes across in a straight line, as opposed to being irregular or curved, for example. This is the mark of someone who may challenge the status quo; and who’s especially concerned with fixing what’s wrong with a system. If the existing rules don’t seem to be doing any good, he’ll feel driven to change them.

Temples
His indented temples show a tendency toward compulsiveness, which is usually seen in people as workaholism or compulsive exercising. However, it can also reveal the potential for addictive tendencies, which is probably why he used to be a smoker. But this same feature provides positive message as well: It means he can be very disciplined, and it’s through concentrated discipline that he can overcome any addiction.

Eyebrows
President Obama’s eyebrows grow in straight, horizontal lines, rather than curved or peaked, for instance. One of the many important messages our eyebrows give is how we make decisions. His straight eyebrows show that he values logic and reason, and that he feels it’s essential to take time to evaluate a problem before coming to a conclusion and taking action.

When the general public heard his 2008 campaign message about “change,” many of them thought that meant change would be nearly immediate after his election! But Mr. Obama is the opposite of impulsive; he wanted to be sure he had all the information and took time to think things through so that his decision would be the best one. For Obama, effective change has to be deliberate and well thought out.

Jaw
His jaw is well defined but not exaggerated in size. The strength of the jaw indicates the strength of someone’s convictions. Too strong a jaw means that someone is too judgmental and rigid in their beliefs, kind of a “my way or the highway” attitude. Instead, President Obama’s jaw reveals a man who has strong values and beliefs but is willing to listen to others’ opinions.

This is another reason why “change” wasn’t immediate after his election. He wanted to consider information from different viewpoints and to bring people together; which slowed things down.

Subtle Messages
As I said above, face reading is about understanding patterns, and there are subtle patterns here that would require you to come to a workshop in order to understand where I see them! This is the reason I have such respect for face reading – It’s not a cookie cutter approach. There are nuanced meanings that can be read in each of our faces.

In President Obama’s case, what I see is that communication can be an issue for him. For example, he was likely to neglect staying in communication with the voters, to explain what was going on. We saw this happen with the health care initiative – In all the work to create it, he didn’t pay enough attention to clearly communicating the benefits of the plan, so everyone understood how it could help them.

As he attacked the massive problems with the economy over the past 4 years, he didn’t take enough time to help voters understand what was going on. To his mind, the priority was to get the work done, not invest his energy in what he viewed more as public relations to polish his image.

Change to Obama’s Face since 2008
Most presidents get gray (or grayer) hair once they get elected, so it’s not a concern that it’s happened with this president too. But there is one change to his face that does concern me. You can even see signs of this in the photo posted here: a wrinkle that starts near his lower mouth and cuts across his chin.

This wrinkle has formed because of a specific facial expression he’s been making consistently. (This is how many of our wrinkles grow, by the way, due to repeated facial expressions – which are a result of repeated patterns of thoughts and emotions. Change those, and you lose the wrinkles.)

Basically, this wrinkle has formed due to repeated expressions of disappointment and dissatisfaction, a motion he makes with his mouth when he feels let down by someone, disappointed that a person has not helped as they promised, or even disappointed in himself for not completing what he’d hoped.

For instance, I’ve seen him make the expression that forms this wrinkle when Vice President Biden makes a gaffe in a speech, when he feels he’s been blocked by Congress from fulfilling his promises, and when staff members he’s depended on haven’t come through the way they should have.

The Key to Getting Elected
The wrinkle I described above has a theme to it that’s bigger than just a current pattern of dissatisfaction and disappointment. It also reflects that one of Barack Obama’s strong values is the spirit of community and cooperation.

However, the most important aspect of this theme has to do with women. I won’t make you sit through a long explanation about the complex patterns that indicate this, but the strong message here is that women are the key if Barack Obama is to be re-elected. If women join together as a community and speak up to lend their strong support, then it’s likely that we’ll have him as president for a second term.

Timing is Everything?
Lastly, when I look at where President Obama is in the cycles of time, I see that the full 4 years since he was elected was a difficult phase, one that wasn’t supportive of his having as much success as he’d have hoped for. However, beginning this winter, he moves into a long cycle (5 years) where it will be far easier for him to achieve all his goals. Whether that will be as president or in some other capacity is yet to be seen!

Good Feng Shui?

Good Feng Shui?

Good Feng Shui or Not?

Original Concept

Sentimental water has been always known as a source of capturing Qi (Chi) for good Feng Shui, provided it’s in its best location for promoting well-being and prosperity. This building is out of the edge concept, but it’s not ”Feng Shui” based. The Qi will not be able to collect properly , not to mention that it’s a bit ”tricky” as matter of safety. The hole at the bottom center takes it of a solid foundation. The hole in the center of the building’s “heart palace” is the concern. We prefer the heart palace or center to be intact and “protected” as if it was indeed the heart. Nevertheless, if you are wealthy and want to spend your holiday here – it is fine!

This would not pass the smell test for good Feng Shui. Still, whatever the landforms (mountains, undulations and water) are around the structure will matter in terms of the where they are located in relationship to the front door for the ultimate test.

What is Yin Yang?

Yin Yang and Tai Chi

What is Yin Yang?

Where does the Yin Yang Symbol come from?

The popular Chinese Yin Yang symbol is interchangeably understood as the Tai-Chi symbol. Yin Yang and Tai-Chi are from Yi Jing or I-Ching. The Yi Jing is the greatest foundation of Chinese philosophy. It’s development is from the natural phenomena of our universe.
The Yin Yang symbol is a Chinese representation of the entire celestial phenomenon. It contains the cycle of Sun, four seasons, 24-Segment Chi, the foundation of the Yi Jing and the Chinese calendar.
The 4 Compass Directions
By observing the sky, recording the Dipper’s positions and watching the shadow of the Sun from an 8-foot (Chinese measurement) pole, ancient Chinese determined the four directions. The direction of sunrise is the East; the direction of sunset is the West; the direction of the shortest shadow is the South and the direction of the longest shadow is the North. At night, the direction of the Polaris star is the North.They noticed the seasonal changes. When the Dipper points to the East, it’s spring; when the Dipper points to the South, it’s summer; when the Dipper points to the West, it’s fall; when the Dipper points to the North, it’s winter.The Chinese Solar CalendarWhen observing the cycle of the Sun, ancient Chinese simply used a pole about 8 feet long, posted at right angles to the ground and recorded positions of the shadow. Then they found the length of a year is around 365.25 days. They even divided the year’s cycle into 24 Segments, including the Vernal Equinox, Autumnal Equinox, Summer Solstice and Winter Solstice, using the sunrise and Dipper positions.

They used six concentric circles, marked the 24-Segment points, divided the circles into 24 sectors and recorded the length of shadow every day. The shortest shadow is found on the day of Summer Solstice. The longest shadow is found on the day of Winter Solstice. After connecting each lines and dimming Yin Part from Summer Solstice to Winter Solstice, the Sun chart looks like below. The ecliptic angle 23 26′ 19” of the Earth can be seen in this chart.

The light color area which indicates more sunlight is called Yang (Sun). The dark color area has less sunlight (more moonlight) and is called Yin (Moon). Yang is like man. Yin is like woman. Yang wouldn’t grow without Yin. Yin couldn’t give birth without Yang. Yin is born (begins) at Summer Solstice and Yang is born (begins) at Winter Solstice. Therefore one little circle Yin is marked on the Summer Solstice position. Another little circle Yang is marked on the Winter Solstice position. These two little circles look like two fish eyes.

What is Qi?

What is Qi

What is Qi?

The literal translation of Qi is breath, air, or gas. The Ancient Chinese viewed Qi as air in the sky, the breath of humans, or the atmosphere of the earth. Hence the concept of Heaven Earth Man.

Qi is the fundamental “life force” energy that permeates through all living things. It links our surroundings together. All things are interdependent, creating cause and effect between their interactions.

By understanding the rhythm and flow of Qi, the Ancient Chinese believed they could guide exercises and treatments to provide stability and longevity. Traditional Chinese Medicine theory interprets Qi as the “energy” that flows in the Meridians and the organs of the body, forming a cohesive and functioning unit. These meridians are the channels which Acupuncture, Qi Gong and Tai Chi uses to create a healthy body.

The understanding of rhythm and flow of Qi in the atmosphere of the earth developed into understanding that water and mountains are conductors of Qi. The concept of Qi in the environment is the foundation by which Feng Shui operates. Feng Shui is about harnessing positive Qi for the benefit of human life.

Yuán qì is a notion of innate or pre-natal qi to distinguish it from acquired qi that a person may develop over the course of their lifetime.

Many cultures have their own concept of Qi. Prana for Hindus, Mana in Hawaiian culture, Lung in Tibetan Buddhism, and Vital Energy in Western philosophy. More on What is Qi, click here.
