In their emails and letters, many people tell me: “Vishwas, you know what… my handwriting keeps changing. In fact it changes from pen to pen. In that case, which handwriting should I send you?” To all those people who think their handwriting changes (I see hands of everyone raised), I must say that it’s perfectly normal to have a varying handwriting. There is nothing weird about it. The variations occur primarily in slant and size. Today we’ll just restrict ourselves to changes in slant.
A few weeks one Anamika sent me two different samples of her handwriting and had written: “When I write a letter to my friend and the person I love, I have in a particular way and when I take notes in classroom, I write differently. Why is that?”
Here is your answer Anamika: Right slant in handwriting means that the writer wants to reach out to others. This is where the role of heart comes into play. When you seek to extend your hand to another person at emotional level, you tend to write in the right slant. The heart takes over the mind. That is why Anamika’s handwriting leans to the right (others) when she writes a letter to her boyfriend. The subconscious desire is to reach out to the man whom she loves. This particular slant also indicates the writer’s need for other in his or her life.
However, while studying, Anamika writes in straight slant, which indicates that mind takes control over her actions. The subconscious needs are apparent: the mind must rule an individual while studying. A person who writes in straight slant is always ruled by his mind and seldom does he allow his heart to hog the limelight.
