Editorial Reviews


Sark author of Succulent Wild Woman Vimala's work is revolutionary. This book will allow an in-depth rebuilding of a stronger you.

Elaine St. James author of Simplify Your Life Vimala reveals with infectious enthusiasm a wealth of powerful techniques that, I can promise from my own experience with them, will definitely change your life.

Christiane Northrup, M.D. author of Women's Bodies, Women's Wisdom [This book] is just plain exciting. I feel strongly that Vimala Rodgers is right, so I'm starting my handwriting changes today. I urge you to do the same.

Henriette Anne Klauser, Ph.D. author of Write It Down, Make It Happen Mr. Palmer, step aside. The Vimala Alphabet is ready to change the world. Vimala Rodgers is passionate about her topic and makes it fun to play along.

Bernie Siegel, M.D. author of Love, Medicine and Miracles and Prescriptions for Living Symbols are the key to communication. Read this fascinating book about self-expression to understand yourself and your ability to change.

Margaret Shepherd author of Calligraphy Made Easy and The Art of the Handwritten Note Vimala offers a fresh, pure, and striking alphabet to anyone whose handwriting needs some encouragement even those who are ready to give up. If you clutch and go dismal at the thought of presenting yourself on paper, you need this book.

Andrew Ramer author of Angel Answers and Revelations for a New Millennium What yoga is to the body-mind, Vimala Rodgers¹s work is for the mind-body. I highly recommend her joyful book to everyone on the path toward healing and wholeness; it¹s a missing link in the holistic field.

Format: Paperback
I have been a student of handwriting analyis for about a dozen-odd years. Handwriting analysis-- formally known as Graphology-- is known to many people, and is used worldwide as a psychoanalytical tool to give us insights into someone's personality. There is considerable scientific evidence to suggest that since our hand (and thus writing) moves as a result of electrical impulses from our brains, our handwriting is a very accurate representation of our state of mind, and the way we think and behave. Although still regarded as a "soft science," Graphology is now used extensively in courts, in the crimal justice system, by therapists and by employers.
Graphotherapy takes a "reverse" approach, suggesting that if a certain style of writing is representative of a certain personality trait or characteristic, then by changing our writing style, we must also be able to "reverse engineer" and change certain behavioral traits.
This book is NOT about handwriting analysis-- it is about about how modifying your handwriting can change the way we think, act and react.
The first half of the book provides readers with a general overview of various aspects of handwriting, and their meaning. In this section we are also introduced to the "Vimala Alphabet," which is the author's interpretation of "ideal" handwriting-- digitized into a computer font, but not difficult to reproduce with pen and ink.
The second half of the book walks us through the letters of the alphabet, one by one, explaining the corresponding personality traits, thoughts or habits associated with both the uppercase and lowercase version of each letter.

Dr. Christiane Northrup, author of "Women's Bodies, Women's Wisdom" highly recommended this book in her newsletter (visit Dr. N's website to read her recommendation). I bought "Your Handwriting Can Change Your Life" the very next day. I started out by only changing my "t"s. The book said the letter "t" represents what we do in the world, so I made tall stems and put the crossbars on top with a firm upward stroke each time I wrote them. Within 40 days of practicing this letter, I had a new and better-paying job. And as I immerse myself in the Vimala Alphabet it gets even better . If you're looking for a gentle tool to change your life in the most positive, powerful and electrifying way, this is it!

Format: Paperback
There are dozens of books available on handwriting analysis. This one differs in its clear and concise description of the specific personality traits corresponding to specific letters and then, most importantly, showing how to optimize one's behavior through specific handwriting changes. In other words, "build it (the desired behavior), and it will come."

From my years of amateur handwriting analsyis, I can vouch for the fact that a change in a person always correlates with handwriting change and I have seen several cases where conscious handwriting change brings about personality change. At the same time, we must acknowledge the power of an individual's intention to change, as indicated in their willingness to recognize traits (and handwriting) that they want to modify.

20 of 21 people found the following review helpful By It's me on December 1, 2010
Format: Paperback
I'm always wary of self help book reviews because even when the reviewers mean well, the fact is that very often people don't wait to really see if a book's program works for them before actually writing a review. I assume this is because unlike other types of books self-help requires actual application of practical work on a daily basis and quite a bit of time. So very often people get excited by the promises the books make & how the book made them feel during the reading of it to the point where they give it raving review without actually having any practical evidence whether any of the advice works.

Well, I'm afraid that I too am writing a review prematurely. It's hard not to with this book because the recommended practice the author gives is 40 days for each letter (working on two letters at a time at the MOST). That means that if you were to never skip a single day of practice it would take you at least a year and a half to go through the program. Almost 3 years if you decide to do one letter at a time. At least the author is being honest about how long it usually takes to change one's handwriting and I think that's a good thing. These excersises will take you anywhere between 10 & 30 minutes a day depending on whether u do 1 or 2 letters and depending on how fast your hand gets the hang of the letter (in the first week of writing a letter I find that it takes me 15 minutes of getting through the excersises for that ONE letter, but then I make less mistakes and am able to go faster.)

I got this book because my handwriting is truly ugly and often ilegible even to my own self. So even if it turns out that handwriting doesn't affect my life at least in the end I'll finally come out with nice handwriting! So for me it is a win either way.

I've been trying to make the changes Vimala recommends, but I honestly don't like the appearance of her recommended handwriting. Lower case g's and s's are identical (basically an open-top figure eight). They don't even resemble the actual letters. Nobody can read my writing since I started using Vimala's alphabet. I feel like I've given this my best effort, but I'm not really finding this useful.
