Have you ever fallen into the abyss?

Updated: Oct 31, 2017

Happy Halloween! I thought all week about the scariest marking I could think of in the hands. It finally came to me! The abyss line. Yup, it sounds scary and it took me on a terrifying ride. Check out my spooky personal story.

In the fall of 2015, with no warning, I found myself falling into the abyss and it was terrifying. Suddenly one chilly autumn day I woke up for work with a crushing feeling that I wasn't doing what I was meant to with my life and it would continue to happen every morning until I stared taking steps to changing my career. The feeling was so overwhelming I could hardly get out of bed in the morning. How could this be happening? I had worked so hard and was finally having success in my career. I couldn’t change everything at this point, right? What was I going to do? I had all the usual excuses: things were OK enough, I was too old, my husband, my kids … blah, blah. At first I tried to just wait and see if the feeling would go away. What I didn't know was that the feeling of being stuck in a void wasn't going to go away quickly, and without my full attention. This is where the abyss line enters into the story (see image below). The abyss line can make a person feel like their life is in free-fall, I was certainly feeling that. The owner of the line can feel the impermanence of life and countless insecurities of being a human being. They can feel the time slipping past and realize their precious life could end without notice or their body could get sick. They can be overwhelmed by the fact that there are so many external forces that threaten our security as humans. A person with this marking can feel like the ground is being pulled out from under their feet and suddenly they are falling into a void. This was all happening to me and I felt stuck in my own personal horror movie.

I wasn’t sure if I would ever feel “normal” again at the time, but I now have deep gratitude for the void because it turned out to be one of the best things that has ever happened to me. It pushed me right into getting a life purpose hand analysis and I was elated to be told my life purpose. I also found out the things that were keeping me from living on purpose and I got to work on changing my career and studying hand analysis. The upside to the abyss line (yes there is an upside!) is these scary thoughts and feelings get the owner to analyze their lives and make sure they are doing what is most important to them. They begin to ask the big questions… "What is my life purpose? Am I spending time with the people most important to me? Am I leaving the legacy I always dreamed I would?" If the person finds that their lives are not in alignment with these types of questions they can choose to make the necessary adjustments toward living their life purpose or tweak their current situation. Another upside is that people who have been to the void are great at helping others who find their lives suddenly in free-fall. I hope one day that the abyss line fades from my hands, until then I am grateful for what it has taught me and it serves as a reminder of my terrifying plunge into the abyss where I lost myself, so I could find myself again.

Thanks for reading my spooky story! Have a safe a Happy Halloween!
