can't do justice to its beauty.
It's a proud addition to my office art collection.)
Baeth: Welcome, It's In Your Hands readers. This is Baeth Davis, the Hand Analyst.
I'm calling in today from my Tucson, Arizona
have on the line with me Dorene Lehavi, a magnificent woman who we're going to find out
more about in just a moment.
is the inauguration of my client interview series,
which explores how my clients have taken the information
from the life purpose spiritual blueprint that's
in their hands and used that to
create a transformational experience, not
only in their lives but in how they view themselves
and who they're becoming in their everyday life.
you had your hands read and had that experience,
what prompted you to have a hand analysis session?
What drew you to the experience?
Dorene: I was very satisfied with the kind of
work I had been doing, but I
always felt that there was more. I didn't
know what it was, and I really wanted to know.
You came along and you were perfect.
Baeth: What did that "more" feel like emotionally
for you? How did that affect you?
Dorene: For me, it's really a matter of knowing
that I'm doing everything I'm supposed to be
doing on this earth. I don't want to leave without
fulfilling my purpose and my passion.
felt that I could only know so much on my own.
There was more. What I understood that you did
was really zero in on things I had no clue about.
Baeth: Your hands revealed that your life purpose is to be the passionate,
creative artist with an audience that loves
your work. What did you feel or experience
when you heard that was your life purpose from
your own hands?
Dorene: You threw me into a shock. I never thought
of myself that way. I've always been a lot more
serious and heavy about helping people. I've
been a therapist and a coach, and I still love
to do that.
art was brilliant, bright, gorgeous, fun and
very warm, and it reached me at a heart level.
I never knew that about myself.
Geiss, my sixth grade art teacher, still loomed
heavy over me and was very discouraging. Now
I'm showing her. I got the last laugh.
Baeth: That brings us to the life lesson.
People will show up in our lives that
trigger a certain emotional response in us.
With our life lesson, it's usually something
we might term negative or uncomfortable. Would
you mind sharing what your teacher said to you?
Dorene: It isn't so much what she said. I was
always a very good girl. I never misbehaved,
got into trouble or dared. I was really a good
girl. She's the only teacher who called my mother
in. She told my mother that I made a bad face
at her, which is so not true.
Baeth: You were probably thinking about what
was for lunch or something.
Dorene: I have no clue, but I would never do such
a thing. I was scared to death of this woman.
Of course, she was also teaching coloring inside
the lines and things like that.
only was she negative
about my artistic ability, but certainly
never encouraging. She never said a good word.
It was a subtle message there that came on very
strong to me.
Baeth: This leads in perfectly to what your hands
revealed about your life lesson. Your life lesson
is emotional authenticity.
learning with emotional authenticity is essentially
to express what you feel regardless of the expectations
of others. Therein resides the explanation
or highlight to the story you just told us,
which is marvelous.
Dorene: Maybe I did make a face at her?
Baeth: It's not about the face, but the fear
of being judged. You were judged as making a
face, even though that isn't what happened.
fear of judgment made you shut down not just
something you enjoyed doing, but you made a
decision at that young age to not fully pursue
your art. Do you see how that works?
Dorene: Absolutely. I didn't even have a clue.
of us structure our entire lives to avoid the
discomfort that the lesson is asking us, in
a sense, to confront.
you're here to learn is that if people make
faces at you, whether they mean to or not, it's
not about you. People's opinions of what you're
doing or not doing are essentially none of your
business. Your inner work is to love yourself
fully and to express what is true for you.
Dorene: That's so releasing and freeing. It's
wonderful to hear that.
Baeth: It's the key that will open the door to
the next level for you as a passionate artist
in the spotlight.
is the connection I hope everyone reading this
is intrigued by and reminded by, whether they've
had an experience of having their hands read
one final thing, Dorene. Your life school is love.
believe that each of these life schools has
a spiritual promise. The spiritual promise of the school
of love is unconditional love of self. That's
the prize that you experience. It also is a
spiritual promise in your work that when you
put your creative artwork out in the world,
it moves people into an experience of love.
Dorene: That's been my experience with it so far.
Baeth: There's a heart connection created.
In order for this heart connection to be felt
by you, it means that you're called to commit
to and continue with your artwork, regardless
of the expectations of others.
Dorene: I'm loving it!
Baeth: Would you be willing to make a commitment
to our audience here? It's okay if you don't
want to. If so, what would your commitment be
around your creativity in the next 90 days?
Dorene: I'm not sure what you're asking me. Do
you mean something concrete?
Baeth: Yes, something concrete.
Dorene: I'm actively pursuing my own language
with my art and what I'm about. I'm really looking
inward to understand more about myself so that
I can deeply connect with the person that I
tending toward doing biographical collages so
that I capture the essence of the person I'm
love people, and I love connecting with them.
Because of my gift as an intuitive and having
been a therapist, my connection with people
is deep. I see beyond what they see for themselves.
I really want to develop that part of my art
so it comes out at a very deep level when I
get into doing a biographical collage for somebody.
I'm just finding ways to express my language
and find what my particular language is in my
art. I commit to keep doing that and really
go deeper and deeper, and hopefully just doing
Baeth: I want to up the ante here, if I may give
you a coach's challenge. I'm going to challenge
you to have three of these biographical collages
commissioned in the next 90 days.
Dorene: That would be lovely.
Baeth: Yes, but it's only valuable if it's
something you're willing to commit to.
Dorene: I will commit to doing three in 90 days.
Baeth: And paid for.
Dorene: That's wonderful. I commit to that.
Baeth: For everyone listening, you can have
a gander at the incredible biographical collage
that Dorene did for me in the newsletter, and
we'll also be posting that online.
how can people reach you if they'd like to find
Dorene: Probably the best thing to do is to call
me. I will have a website having to do with
my art, but my website right now has to do with
my coaching business. They could go there and
find me at www.CoachingforYourNextLevel.com.
phone number, which is probably better if you're
more interested in the art, is 323-931-7204.

bringing me such joy. You've just confirmed

the way it goes.
