Changing your handwriting can have a profound effect on the quality of your life and relationships. Handwriting stems from subconscious aspects ingrained into who you are – when you clutch that pen and write a few lines on a piece of paper, it's the neuropathways stemming from your brain that are determining what your handwriting looks like. How are these pathways formed? By your life experiences and thought processes. Be it positive or negative – from being confident in social situations to having a poor self image, it all reflects in your handwriting. And by changing your handwriting, you reverse the process and change the way that these neuropathways are formed – and in doing so you change your self image and affect positive changes in your life.

The Vimala Alphabet, developed by Vimala Rodgers, is designed so that each letter represents a specific positive aspect that a person may want to develop. Trust issues, wanting more confidence, allowing your creativity to flow – the way you form each letter can be a clear indicator of where your strengths and weaknesses lie. By practicing the Vimala Alphabet with disciple and perseverance, you can develop those traits that benefit you while letting go of the ones that don't – on a deeper subconscious level that can bring about great changes in your life.

Altering your handwriting can be a difficult task, especially if you write very differently to the way that letters are written in the Vimala Alphabet, but the rewards are definitely worth the effort, and it may help to keep Vimala Rodgers 5 Noble Truths of Graphotherapy (handwriting analysis) in mind:

2. The frequency with which a handwriting trait occurs in your writing is the frequency with which the quality it represents occurs in your life.

3. In looking at the handwriting of someone with whom you are in a relationship, both your handwriting and the writing of the other person are required to find out why buttons are getting pushed.

4. The degree of difficulty in the mastery of a stroke change is directly proportional to the value it will have in your life. The greater the difficulty, the greater the value.

5. Once you begin to alter strokes in your handwriting, you will be given immediate and intimate opportunities to prove your intention – in the form of a person, situation, or a relationship.
