Is it possible to have it all? To love your work, know that you’re fulfilling your purpose in life, and earn a great living all at the same time? I hope you’re nodding your head, Yes! because of course you can! But you may also be wondering How can I make this happen in my own life?

Your answer may be in the mirror. Chinese face reading is an ancient branch of Chinese medicine which teaches that your face reveals the map of your inner nature and your life purpose - And if you can create a life in alignment with that beautiful design, the money will flow in to support you.

Every feature on your face has many messages about who you really are and how to find the career that’ll bring you joy and abundance. Here are a few examples:

Do you have strong eyebrows, indented temples and a well-defined jaw? These reveal that you are a “Warrior” archetype, which means that your purpose is to create positive change in the world, to break up old ways of being and make this a better place.

For a career, you’d be a brilliant personal coach, athletic trainer or entrepreneur. You’re logical, practical and a great problem-solver. Very goal-oriented, with a “Let’s go!” attitude, you have the ability to create an action plan to get people unstuck and headed in the right direction.

You’ll do best with short-term projects because if something drags on and on, you’ll get frustrated. Your competitive drive means you love to reach each goal and then dive into what’s next!

Do you have rounded eyebrows, plump cheeks and nose, and full mouth? These facial features reveal you to be the “Mother” archetype: incredibly generous, kind and compassionate, who’s always drawn to nurture and help.

For a career, you’d be a great teacher, therapist, caregiver, or nutritionist. You’ll always be thoughtful and thorough with your work, your focus consistently on your client’s needs rather than your own, or to benefit the greater good of the company or team.

Your purpose in life is to empower others, just like a mother raises her children to thrive in the world. Although your work may often revolve around being in a support or advisory role, this does not mean you’re subservient, but rather that your joy comes from being of service.

You can even read your child’s face to discover how he or she can find success! Does your child have red hair, peaked eyebrows, freckles, upturned eyes and a radiant glow? This all indicates the “Performer” archetype.

These children have natural warmth and exuberance that make others feel happy just being around them. Their purpose in the world is to light people up - to inspire them to open their hearts and live with love.

For a career, these children could be actors or artists, teachers, or excel in sales, marketing or public relations.  They need lots of change and variety in their work, and will always have a lot of projects going at once. Their power will be in working with people; these are not children who will be loners!
