Self Diagnosis based on your Fingers
Rings, Accidents and White Spots

The following self diagnosis techniques provide you with a quick way of identify personal issues. While not very thorough, they can still give you a general idea of which areas of your life need a boost, what you need to let go, what is causing you anxiety. All you have to do is look at the finger where:
- you usually wear a ring,
- you have a finger accident,
- white spots appear on the fingernail

Self Diagnosis based on Wearing Rings:
Where you Need an Extra Boost

Wearing many rings
Wearing many rings often denotes
an insecure personality
Wearing a ring on a specific finger means that you need an extra boost in the indicated area. This information is based on Johnny Fincham’s book entitled The Spellbinding Power of Palmistry, which is one of the palm reading books I highly recommend.

Thumb: Shows a desire for greater willpower, inner strength and energy to cope with life in general
Index finger: Related to self obsession, the need to dominate or an inferiority complex
Middle finger: A need for stability and order and for a sense of values
Ring finger: If the ring symbolized an engagement or a marriage, it indicates success in mating. Stakes. Other types of rings reveal a concern for your image (common on performers)
Little finger: Conveys you are sexually available or sexually curious, or else you are concerned with communications (common on writers and public speakers)
Rings on several fingers: Often denotes an insecure or troubled personality (common on adolescents)

Self Diagnosis based on a Finger Accident:
Relax and Let Go

may indicate you fear something
An accident is almost always a way for your subconscious mind to give a sign to your conscious mind. Hurting your finger is no exception. According to Louise Hay’s You Can Heal Your Life, fingers represent the details of life.

If you cut, bruise, burn or otherwise hurt one of your fingers, check which one is concerned. It will help you identify in which area of your life you need to relax and let go.

Thumb: Something related to the mind, most of the time worry
Index finger: The accident is related to ego and fear
Middle finger: Sexuality or anger, or both. When you are angry, Louise Hay suggest you hold your middle finger and watch the anger dissolve. Hold your right finger if you are angry at a man, and your left finger if you are angry at a woman.
Ring finger: Concern with unions and grief
Little finger: Related to family and pretending

Self Diagnosis based of White Spots on Fingernails:
The Origin of your Anxiety

Officially called "leukonychia", those little white spots can often be seen on the pink part of the nails, in the absence of nail polish or plastic nails. There are many explanations as to the reason for those spots, including mild trauma, skin condition or mineral deficiency, such as zinc or calcium. However, white spots usually reveal a certain amount of anxiety in one specific aspect of your life. If you see several spots on a specific fingernail, make sure they are present on the same nail of both hands before you draw any conclusions.

Since it takes approximately six months for a fingernail to grow to its full length (only the pink section), you can easily identify the time of the problem, based on the location of the spots. By regularly checking my nails - and my friends’ nails - and comparing them to personal events, I have accurately pinpointed specific problems in my life, as well as the time when they happened. Remember that it is not the problem itself that creates the spots, but your reaction to this problem.

Thumb: Relationships or anything related to “basic instincts.” During my divorce, my thumb looked like snow falling in Winter!
Index finger: Work or ambition. Conflicts with an employer or tensions regarding a promotion are often reflected on this fingernail.
Middle finger: Your sense of right and wrong. A friend of mine who was terrified of not being a good mother always had spots there.
Ring finger: The ability to enjoy yourself. When you feel guilty for having fun, spots appear on the ring fingernail.
Little finger: Communications. I have seen spots on this finger when a person can’t communicate or communicates too much to be effective.
