"I am concerned about the appearance of my fingernails"
I am a male age 49 and consider myself to be in good health. I am concerned though about the appearance of my fingernails. I have small vertical ridges on the last two fingers on both hands, the other two fingers have horizontal ridges along with a concave appearance. The thumb on my left hand also has horizontal ridges. My right index finger right now has about a 30 degree angle up from the tip due to a ridge. Any advice, information that you could send my way would be terrific.
Hi - That can be a sign of some illness in the body, or sometimes some form of malnutrition. It's good that you are noticing it and asking about it.
However, as I tune in, I am being told that there are some strong emotional issues underlying this. Maybe the malnutrition is on the emotional level. I'll tell you what these issues are, but I also suggest you go to a naturopathic doctor and get checked out, just to cover that area as well.
OK. This has, for some reason, to do with the issue of ethics and honor in relationships. This is a 2nd chakra issue that deals with or can correspond to urinary difficulties. So perhaps this has to do with the way you are dealing with or releasing (or not releasing) certain toxic matters in your life, as that is what urination deals with. Is there a friend in your life whom you need to release, or cut the cords to? Someone or something that you are feeling embroiled with in a very negative, destructive way for you? I strongly invite you to read Caroline Myss's book Anatomy of the Spirit, focusing on the info about the 2nd chakra. That chakra, or area of our life, is all about our relationship with others. There is an issue for you to deal with about occupying your own space and being grounded in yourself. There seems to be a need for you to create in a new way, to bring some strong positive energy into your life, to release morbid thoughts, loneliness, and stubborness. To learn to relate to others from a new place. And all of this from fingernails, you may ask? Well, that's the info I am being given.
A great meditation to do (ask and ye shall be answered sort of thing) is to sit quietly and when fully relaxed and in a deep rythm with your breath, ask to see what are the origins of this problem with your fingernails. Anything we need an answer to, we can find, if we are willing to receive it.
The red Aura-Soma pomander for grounding of purpose would be good for you to use. Also the Sanat Kumara and Lady Venus Kumara quintessence, which is for making a connection with others - that each may be able to help together with various facets of a particular task or project from a place of Love. You can order these through the Internet, or at firstname.lastname@example.org. There is a sense of being adrift, for you, and feeling very anxious due to that.
Well, that's it. Blessings, Ayal
