Advantage Of Being a Chinese Face Reader: Reason #501

This is not a book review, however I am reading a book.

This book is called “This is Marketing: You Can’t Be Seen Until You Learn to See” by Seth Godin, which of course is about how to market products to people. Godin has a popular blog (https://seths.blog) all about marketing, the success of which has allowed him to write and sell off the back books and workshops.

What I’m trying to say is that the guy obviously knows his stuff.

I’m not doing too well with this book I’m afraid, it’s all very “jumpy” for me. Of course the book has chapters, but in these chapters are smaller subtitled divisions on the subject of the chapter.

What it feels like to me is that he’s collected blog posts of 200 or 100 words and organised them into chapters, and as soon as I feel that he’s about to get to the point and finally explain something – Godin jumps. Another subtitle is on the page with another anecdote. Stop. Start. Stop. Start. It has an interruptive quality to say the least.

I like to plow through books. I like non fiction to have long expansive discourses. I like things to floooooow. But reading in this jumpy format, it was doing my nut in.

Soooo, Chinese face reader cap on, I thought: “This man has to be bamboo, or something!”

And yes, yes he is.

Godin has the bamboo pattern in his birth date. If you’ve ever seen bamboo grow you know that it splits at the root and goes in different directions and it can be a very flexible. In a person this means a short attention span, a love to have flexibility in his life – to start one thing then jump to another.

Another pattern associated with bamboo in Chinese medicine is the wind, something or someone that is always moving and always changing.

We typically call this the warrior pattern as well, because warrior’s come here to interrupt and change how we see the world and what we do in it.

Then comparing it to my birth date….a mountain. I have the mountain pattern, which if you imagine a mountain…Is it flexible? How often does it move really in it’s lifetime? How this transfers to a person, is that a mountain likes to sit for long periods of time, whether that’s reading a book, or eating a meal, it’s wrong for them to jump around.

A mountain is so solid and structured, that when you put against wind energy, or a “wind” person, or any quickness in general, they/I can get quite baffled and annoyed.

But! Chinese face and birth date reading to the rescue!

Because I know this stuff, I’m less annoyed and more compassionate towards Godin. I know it’s a true and authentic expression of himself, it’s just that who I am and who he is, it’s incompatible. And I respect and trust that.

Will I continue reading this book?

Yes.

But more as a bamboo, as Godin would read it, rather than a mountain.

P.S. By the way, his face tells me that he has even more quickness in his nature (pointed corners of the mouth, large eyes), but it’s a side note to his attention to detail (prominent nose), strong belief system (strong jaw), and independent nature (ears coming away from the head).

Face As Design: What This Woman Needs In A Job

Another way to see someone’s character is to view it as a design. Once we begin to see character as design we unlock who that person is, and most importantly, what that person needs to thrive.

Of course this can be achieved through massive amounts of introspection, or a Chinese face reading! Once you know how, the latter is much easier as it’s quite obvious.

In the last post we discussed what she needs from a date, how her extreme physical sensitivity will require someone to arrange dates in quieter and/or fancier places, and how she won’t like to be touched.

How do I know this?

Her high cheekbones, full upper cheeks, prominent nose, very pale and luminous skin tell me that she is very sensitive to her physical environment.

She is someone who feels sick when a friend in a bad mood walks next to her, she’s someone who avoids shopping malls, busy streets and crowded small places as the invisible stress picked up from people is very unbearable.

Until I can think of other areas of life we can explore with this lady, this is the last post in the series.

So, excelsior!  How does this woman’s design transfer to what she would need from a job.

Anyone who has this sensitivity will counter and balance it with control (we spoke about this in the first post), so ideally if she’s in a job that can allow her to control – whether that’s as the head of department or working self-employed, she needs to have a job where she can control her own schedule or “control”/order others around.

This sensitivity allows her to see the big picture and small, so she may be quite the visionary which may eventually mean that she will float and flow effortlessly into a position of authority.

When we live according to our design and who we are, we “flow” toward things that are right for us. The Chinese call this Wu Wei.

Expanding on this theme of control, or rather the opposite, she hates surprises. She hate to be living as a freelancer or hand to mouth, she’d like to have a set pay check at the end of each month.

Day to day, she wouldn’t mind doing the same tasks again and again. Predictable work is best for her that plays up to her love of details – a career in finance would not be amiss.

I would not recommend a casual workplace for her, that has beanbags for desk chairs and is open plan – it’s not “proper” and an open plan office would be too visually distressing for her. When I say “proper,” this person is the archetype of the “queen” and has a high regard for rules.

Okay, I could tell you so much more (and more and more), but I’ll have to stop here.

The Crippled Warrior/Abuse of the Elder

The archetype of the warrior has a much darker side.

A person can have the personality of the warrior based on the patterns in their birth date and in their face.

Like Spring is nature forming itself and giving new structure, new energy, after Winter, a healthy in balance Warrior will be energetic, will have a love of structure (maybe even the colour green). This love of structure extends to a love of plans, a love of checklists, a love of doing something and getting it done. The satisfaction of the doing.

So what’s the darker side then?

Warrior energy or the warrior person can appear to be quite boisterous, rambunctious and loud. Sometimes they may even have a tendency to be a rebel or a rule-breaker, especially when they don’t agree with the logic behind your rules.

This boisterous well-meaning child can often have an experience with an adult, an elder, a teacher, anyone in a position of authority who will abuse that authority in order to curb the full expression of that loud energetic child.

In some experiences, the elder will tell the child that up is down, that black is white and if they think otherwise it’s wrong.

And this where we get to the crippled warrior.

When this happens over time in the warrior’s life, they won’t know who they are and what they want because they’ve told for so long what they want and who they are by the elder(s). A warrior, who overtime, becomes divorced from their sense of self.

This results in a crippling of the spirit. The crippled warrior will feel lost, will be susceptible to the mental illness of depression. They will plan on everything and do nothing. Make checklists that go unticked. Be good at talking the talk but not walking the walk – perhaps behind every hypocrite lies a crippled warrior?

They will feel inherently exhausted, wounded and weak despite being physically whole and healthy.

If you imagine a flesh and blood cripple, someone who has lost a hand or even a leg. In their new life, they have to get used to not reaching for things, to not being able to stand. Perhaps in their recovery, life will be more exhausting as they can’t reach.

This is what surmises the life of the crippled warrior, that feeling of not being able to reach.

For some crippled warriors, they will counteract this “loss of limb” with an equal amount of discipline to get the job done – which will be twice as exhausting than it is for healthier warriors and when it doesn’t work out, this will result in just as much anger at the self.

But it’s not their fault.

It’s years and years worth of a wounding done to the spirit.

Their challenge in life then is the very simple yet complex question of knowing who they are and what they want, and then enacting that and being it fully.

A warrior who sees well can speak well and act well. Chinese Medicine calls these people the agents of change, the people who will SEE what’s wrong in the world, SPEAK up and fix it.

This is what Chinese face reading can help with – bringing awareness to your design, so you know that it’s not your fault and finally, bringing healing not just through knowledge but also in the personalised holistic solutions that I can come up with in session ♥️

You’re far too complex for a simple one-sided solution 🥰

Face As Design: What This Woman Needs In A Date

Another way to see someone’s character is to view it as a design. Once we begin to see character as design we unlock who that person is, and most importantly, what that person needs to thrive.

Of course this can be achieved through massive amounts of introspection, or a Chinese face reading! Once you know how, the latter is much easier as it’s quite obvious.

In the last post we discussed what she needs from a home, how her extreme physical sensitivity will inspire her to create a controlled and visually clean environment.

How do I know this?

Her high cheekbones, full upper cheeks, prominent nose, very pale and luminous skin tell me that she is very sensitive to her physical environment.

She is someone who feels sick when a friend in a bad mood walks next to her, she’s someone who avoids shopping malls, busy streets and crowded small places as the invisible stress picked up from the people is very unbearable.

Previously I said we’d explore what she needs from a love relationship, but I’ve realised this is too complex and we don’t have her birth date patterns (the other 50% of who she is).

So instead I thought we’d explore this lady’s design and how this transfers to what she would like if you were to take her out on a date.

And so here is my first date idea:

perchek-industrie-06ZPLRGlR-M-unsplash.jpg

Yes, a cathedral.

Why?

It’s a quiet place.

This is someone who (most likely) avoids shopping malls because “feeling” all the people there makes them nauseous.  It’s a sensitivity, when unchecked, can make her live her life in small ways.

So when you take her out on a date, or anyone with these features for that matter, it’s best to choose places that are quiet, almost empty with people as she will be relaxed and open, not subconsciously on guard.

Other similar places to visit would be museums or art galleries.

When you go out, choose a time of day and a time of week that is off peak and an activity which is pedestrian – definitely no paint balling! High quality restaurants and bars are definitely appreciated. No night clubs, no loud music, no loud anything – too much overload as it is, it’s painful to have more. The best time might be lunch on a weekday, she’ll gravitate to the quietest part of the restaurant, and better if you have nothing to go to after lunch.

In terms of your behaviour towards her, I need to phrase it like so:

How would you treat royalty? Where would you bring royalty?

The archetype that Chinese Face Readers associate with this face are the King or Queen as her sensitivities make her highly detailed orientated, and therefore a love, a basic human need,  of high quality.  This often translates as expensive, and it’s true, she likes expensive things, but it’s possible to jump over this problem by showing her places that are very meaningful to you or her. She’ll appreciate the gesture as it’s thoughtful.

Now back to royalty – so in treating her, no hugs, no touching until she makes a move (that shows she’s comfortable with your “energy”) as she will feel it as an electric shock. Always be respectful, perhaps more than usual as she will prize manners very highly.

Don’t expect sex on the third date!! No, never! Unless lightning has struck and she’s very comfortable with her sensitivities and she likes how you feel to her, then yes, there’s a chance, but usually there’s a wait.

And that’s it for now. Looks out for the next one!

(P.S. This post was probably showing my general Englishness, as cathedrals are quite common over here and visiting them can be an excuse for a day out.)

(P.P.S If any of this felt exhausting for you then you definitely know, just by reading this woman’s face, that she isn’t the right one. Pretty nifty, eh?)
