Does our penmanship expose our personality? Handwriting experts would say yes. I just saw one on a news show analyzing the signatures of the staff. She gave some pretty good insights and then told them not to change some good aspects of their signatures because it could change them. Wow! But could it go both ways? If we change how we write, could it change aspects of our personality? Could we become better people simply by changing how we write?
Vimala Rodgers thinks so. She has invented the Viimala alphabet which I stumbled upon on Facebook a few days ago. (Note: When I randomly stumble upon similar advise in a short period of time, I take notice.) She has written books and teaches classes on changing your handwriting to change your life. She even has a testimonial from Louise Hay, one of my favorite authors. You can see most of the letters styles and the meanings behind them on Vimala’s facebook page.
Vimala’s alphabet is beautiful, but it may take a little while to learn it. I decided, perhaps, I should start with some small changes in my signature and see what I notice. My handwriting as a whole is not pretty and my signature is unique. Yes, that a nice way to say it looks like it was written by a gorilla, (no offense to gorillas). Here’s what my current signature looks like:
In order, to make a quick change, I decided to add the M and the D from the Vimala alphabet and make my signature more legible and underline it once. My main line of thinking is that my current signature reflects someone who could be in a witness protection program, someone who wants to not be seen. It makes sense because I’ve always been an introvert, but I am an author and I want people to see me, remember me, and want to read me books once they are published. On the news show, the expert said that underlining once calls attention in a good way. Underlining twice is too much and smacks of desperation. After a few pages of practice, here’s my new and improved signature:
It needs some work, but I think its an improvement. Hopefully, I won’t get a call from the bank. What do you think? Would you change your handwriting in order to change your personality? Do you think if our personalities changed our handwriting would naturally evolve with it?
I’d love to hear what you think. To prove it, I’m giving away one of my Angel Card readings (see service page) to one of my commenters during the month of January. I’ll put everyones name in random.org and choose a winner to be announced here around February 1st. Then I’ll email the winner with the details. If you like my Facebook page in the box on the right side, and let me know in your comment, I’ll put your name in twice.
Love and Miracles,
To thank my subscribers I have a monthly give away (Subscribe here). This month’s winner will win a copy of my book Personal Alchemy, and a Personal Alchemy mouse pad and will be announced in my newsletter around the first of the month.
