In 1998, I attended a conference where Vimala Rodgers presented on the topic CHANGE YOUR HANDWRITING, CHANGE YOUR LIFE. I didn't attend, and bought the audiotape. I tossed the tape into my Walkman with mild curiosity.
My psychology background had taught me how subtly some muscle movements and neurological activity are connected. I knew how difficult it is to yell "Wow! I'm feeling great!" when I'm slumped over in a droopy posture. So, in this attitude of mild curiosity, I listened to Vimala while I was doing other things. Since I always enjoyed handwriting, I tried forming letters the way Vimala had described at her presentation, particularly the lower case t and d. I just worked them into my usual handwriting for the fun of it.
To my surprise, within a week or so, I found myself thinking things that had not occurred to me before, thoughts related to the topics addressed by these two letters. I noticed that I began swinging my arms during my daily walk without trying--something I'd tried repeatedly to do for increased aerobic effect, only to forget to make the effort as I walked. That a tiny handwriting change could account for this stuff didn't occur to me. I began to write in my journal to delve into these changes. I observed that these Vimala-style d's and t's were the only recent change I'd made. Curiouser and curiouser. . .
Then, I learned that Vimala was here on the East Coast on sabbatical; what do you know? She was staying about a 2 hour drive from my home. I sought her out, and it was then that I bought her book, CHANGE YOUR HANDWRITING, CHANGE YOUR LIFE. That so much potential could be packed into such a slim, graceful volume surprised me once again.

Not only have I read this book and her latest one as well (Your Handwriting Can Change Your Life - March, 2000), I have studied under her since 1995. She is as giving, intuitive, passionate, and honest about her work as she comes across in her books.
Many studies have validated that handwriting is brain writing. Therefore, by making healthy handwriting changes, these changes will be displayed through one's personality. Vimala, however, is the only person I know who has actually developed healthy writing strokes that focuses on building character and making personal transformations.
I highly recommend this book and her new book.

Format: Paperback
Psychological script analysis or graphology has competition and opposition from many quarters. Psychometric testers claim greater accuracy for recruitment and compatibility studies. Forensic questioned document examiners claim greater scientific rigour than court graphologists. Human rights groups attack graphology as an invasion of privacy. Graphology may upset people because it is considered either insufficiently accurate or because it is too analytical, negative and invasive.
But there is one area where an understanding of handwriting has unique possibilities and that is graphotherapy. It is the subject of Vimala Rodgers's Book "Change Your Handwriting, Change Your Life".
Human beings naturally tend to see themselves and their place in society from their own point of view. Graphotherapy helps people to understand their innermost feelings, fears and moods, yet at the same time become more sensitive to others' feelings.
Innately we all need to move forward and grow. How to do this on one's own is often not easy. Here Vimala Rodgers's book can be a great help. It outlines a way for readers to audit their attitudes. It presents handwriting exercises which act as focused meditation, helping the reader in such areas as listening, patience, resentment, forgiveness and gratititude. Subsequently, handwriting analysis is able to monitor the extent to which this focused meditation through graphotherapy has changed the way the reader is living.
Qualified graphologists will see this book as a useful addition to their library on stroke analysis, but it is much more than this. The book contains a whole-life, uplifting philosopy which takes it outside the specialised field of graphology.

Format: Paperback
I am a person who, for the first 40 years of her life, couldn't keep from continually imitating the handwriting of those around me. I always knew that certain handwriting strokes engendered very specific feelings and emotions and I tried to use this to my advantage, but to no avail. This book was just the help I needed in showing me exactly which strokes were positive and should be reinforced for good character. Since reading it in 1995, I have been able to develop, for the first time in my life, my OWN handwriting style. This book truly helped me on a very personal level.

I am unable to write such words that give Vimala justice about how her book has effected my life. All I can say is if one chooses to experience what the book has to offer then your options in life will become greater, your sense of direction will become clearer and life will become more joyous. Vimala is an uplifting teacher and incredible mentor.

A truly unique book! For many years I have wanted to improve my handwriting so that someone other than my secretary could read it; but I never realized that changing my handwriting could transform my relationships. This book offers a direct path to expressing the inner self and achieving peak performance. I highly recommend it.
