Face Reading


Dr Aaron Lim - once upon a time in the Universe :)


Just back from a one-day seminar on "Face Reading" by Dr Aaron Lim in Malacca. We had a splendid time, both from the seminar and also gallavanting the streets of Malacca the day before.

[Note: The following notes are written from the first person perspective, as if Dr Aaron is speaking. However, it is not exactly ad verbatim, as I have written them based on my sketches, scribbles and memory.

The face feature interpretations are deliberately obscured in these notes. This is not a teaser to get you to pay up the fees and attend the class, but because a little knowledge derived just from the written word sans tutor, can be dangerous. To get a fuller and more complete appreciation of face reading, it is best you attend the course. The course is very cheap, as Dr A teaches this not for the money. (See later.) Sorry, I know it is a anti-climax here, but I think I would rather err on the safe side.

Ok, may be just mention of the 'juicier' parts! :) See later...]

It has been a long time since I did this course on "Face Reading", as I did not want to teach things that you may end up too reliant on, and create superstition. Superstition is based on fear. It is easier to make money by teaching fear. Many people make lots of money from teaching fear, few make money by teaching love. I teach this course to help you to understand yourself.

.

Unlike many other seminars on this subject, this course is not about fortune telling. It is not about "You are what you are now because of your facial features." Conversely, it is about, "Your facial features are like that because of what what you think." So, the cause is your thoughts.

.

1. Thoughts are 'things'.

This is the first thing you need to know. From thoughts come forms or 'things'. Your face is form and therefore is a 'thing'. Your face comes from your thoughts. You are here to understand the cause - that is, your thoughts - that has created this face of yours.

.

Again, this is not a course to teach you how to make more money! Not about your fortune as told from your face. You already have the best fortune there is, which is your smile. When you meet someone, first smile, then say "hello", then stretch out your hand, then say "thank-you". Fortune will follow if you live like this.

.

Thoughts are the centre of our lives. Learning what stones to put in which corner of your house, the orientation of your house, shape of your garden...etc, are peripherals. Put the 'centre' in the centre; and NOT the 'peripheral' in the centre, and the 'centre' in the peripheral.

.

Until you were born, you didn't have a face. Then your thoughts created your facial features when you were born. So your face changed according to your thoughts, until you are 25 years old, when the bone structure are crystalised.

To change your life, you need to change the invisible - the beginning of the beginning or th beginning...

My quick sketch whilst Dr A was talking...

I grew up in a Malay kampung (village). Kampung houses are elevated on stilts and most people have wooden staircases leading up to their houses. My house has a concrete staircase, so we kids love to sit there and talk.

.

Everyone would be enjoying the chat until someone mentioned the word "Hantu" (ghost) and we would freeze for a few seconds. Then surely one of us will tell us of a story, and usually one they have not experienced themselves, but "heard from someone else who heard from someone else...".


.

Then as the stories got scarier, we all got more afraid until we would think that there was one next to us... and then one of us would scream and we would all run away. So you see, from 'nothing', we started this crazy idea that became 'something'.

.

2. You can only change Yourself.

You cannot change anyone else but yourself. By changing your thoughts, you change yourself. Be like water. Water adapts to the shape of its receptacle without changing itself.

3. No Judgement

Nothing is 'good' or 'bad'. Look at the world as 'it is'.

4. Everything is Relative

For instance, if you say something is 'beautiful' - it is beautiful compared to 'what' or 'who'? Nothing is absolute. In face reading, compare within your race. If you are of mixed race, then use the dominant race.

.

[Personal note: Cross race comparison is possible. From there, you get general racial characteristics. But know that you are generalising.]

.

5. All Humans are Social Beings. No one is an island

Your success is partly due to contributions by others. Be grateful to their contributions. Say 'thank you'.

6. Everybody with no exception, wants to be loved and to love

Whoever, standing in front of you wants to be loved the way they are. Ok, careful, it's not necessarily about romantic love or wanting to make love with you! [amid chuckles!]

Ah, remember don't comment about other people's bodies. You are not going to get away with it. For instance, I was in Sarawak for a seminar and I hugged this lady. Her first comment was, "Wah! Your tummy so big!" [Chuckles]

Anyway, for this course, we are only going to look at the face, not the body. For body, there is another course called "Body reading". [Murmurs of interest heard from the audience already!]

Face vs Facial Expressions

Don't confuse facial expression with facial structure. Expression can mask the person's personality easily. Especially if you are an actor and have been to charm school.

Also, when you analyse or measure a face, that person should be as expressionless as possible. Imagine if you are being photographed when you are arrested. That is the type of photo that will tell the features accurately.

For instance, a lady student came to tell me that when she was dating, the boyfriend (and now husband) couldn't get his hands off her. They are always very physical, but now he doesn't seem to like being together. On the couch, she would like to sit next to him to cuddle and he would typically say, "Aiya, the sofa is so big, why don't you sit over there!" The girl will tend to think that he doesn't love her anymore, but he could be just a different nature. And his facial feature showed that he is the physically cold type of person who needs distance. So do not confuse between facial expressions and hormones. These come and go, but the facial features tell more accurately about a person's natural behaviour and thoughts.

Features

We studied the lines on the forehead, the shape of the forehead, the shape of the eye brows, the distance between the eye brow and the eye, the broadness of the nose, the lines from the nose to the side of the mouth, the shape and thickness of the lips, the shape of the jaw, the proportion of the distance of the eye with the length of the face, the broadness of the filtrum and the shape of the ear.


Eye brow and forehead


Distance of eyes to each other and distance of eye brow to eye



Shape of the jaw and shape of the face (which does not matter)


Square jaw - someone who will dig in his heels when challenged




Proportiion of length and breadth of face


Line from face nose to edge of lip

.

Thickness of lips

.

Broadness of filtrum

.

Shape of ear lobe (see arrow)

Let's talk about Sex

Generally (and remember it is general), the darker skin races have a stronger sex drive. Thicker lower lips and deeper filtrum means stronger sex drive. Eye brows close to eye mean that the person is a naturally warm person, they love to hug and be hugged. They don't need much time to warm up against another person. A person with a 'high brow' far from eye does not necessarily mean that he is not loving, he can be loving, but just that he naturally needs the space in between people first and takes time to warm up.

A person with rounded/curved forehead (side profile) is a more spontaneous person, I guess that helps in sex, compared to one who is super-logical and analytical during sex.

Ear lobes: The part that is arrowed (see pix above) - if it is a rounded U-shape turn, the person needs shorter time to be aroused sexually and conversely if it is V-shape turn, the person needs a longer time to be aroused.

So which is better? Longer time or shorter time?

[Class shouting out loud: There is no better or not. There is no good or no bad! (amid laughter)]

Good, I nearly got you for this one. Yes, there is no 'good' or 'bad'. Everything is relative and there is no judgement, but just to see things as they are.

It just helps you to understand that we are all different by nature and there is nothing personal if one party is not so interested in sex. It doesn't mean that the man does not love his wife or girlfriend if he is not so interested in sex.

All the rules above must be applied together. For instance if you get someone with square jaw but long face, it means that though he has a strong determination to face challenges, but his motivation and support has to come from outside to start him off.

Personal Notes:

I find the rules apply to me very accurately accept for two rules, namely: the proportion of the length of the face to the breadth of the edges of the eyes; and the lines from the nose to the edges of the lips. Perhaps I continue to change after the age of 25 years old. By that time, the bone structure would have already crystalised.

As it was said before, this course is meant for you to understand yourself, and is not for fortune telling.

The day passed quickly whilst we were having fun. Thank you Ruby for organising the whole seminar.

Exercise 1:

Get a photo, and join the left half with the laterally inverted left half. This is your face showing your "learned you".

Likewise, join the right half of the photo with its laterally inverted right half. This is your face showing the "Real you".

Exercise 2:

Turn to the news on tv and watch the newsreader's features. Try it for news from different language channels.

Exercise 3:

People watching. Sit by a cafe along a busy mall and watch people.


Coming up?? 'Body-Reading' seminar coming, probably also in Malacca.
