Can Changing Your Hand Writing Change YOU?

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, 

 Michelle

  1. Interesting! So, did writing your name in this different manner make you "feel" differently? I'm off to check out Vimala's page now...

    1. Cate, It felt foreign and strange to write it that way. I've been practicing a pageful of the new signature at night before I go to bed and I'm getting used to it. I think it gives me a confident feeling when I underline it. I think you'll enjoy Vimala's work. It's very unique. Thanks for commenting. :)

  2. I took one of Vimala's classes years ago and changed my signature as a result. Hard to point to what the differences in life may be, but I like my signature better.

    1. Tess, that's cool. I would assume that the changes would be subtle, but sometimes over time small changes can makde a big difference. Thanks for commenting. :)

  3. I did an hand writing analysis once and he did tell me things that were true about my personality. But then my personality keeps changing with time. But I think making conscious changes in the handwriting to bring about change in our personality is interesting. In the end its the intention that truly matters.

  4. I agree. It's the intention that matters. I have fun playing with little things like that sometimes and just seeing what happens. :) BTW, i moved over to WordPress so all my new posts are at www.dailyalchemy.com, if you ever want to stop by. :)
