So, how does GraphoTherapy work with Tarot? In a nutshell, GraphoTherapy is “Change your Handwriting, Change your Life.”
Handwriting is brain writing. It is not the hand that decides how you write. It’s your brain. And your sees and acts according to your personality. If something feels natural, it belongs to your personality. If it doesn’t, it doesn’t. However it can be made to … and that is what Graphotherapy is all about.
Tarot + Handwriting = ?
But first let’s go back to Tarot and Handwriting. The Tarot has told the events, past, present and likely to occur if you keep going in the present direct. Your Handwriting has told you what you have going for you to make the best of what is coming, what is in the present and even how to deal with what is past. And it had told you in what ways you are inclined to behave that would jeopardize positive outcomes and make worse difficult ones.
But what if you don’t have what you need to cope with what is coming up? What if your Handwriting shows that what you really need, you just don’t have? Or what if it will probably be OK with what you have, but it could be so much better if you could respond in a different way?
That’s where GraphoTherapy comes in.
If you change your writing to include the traits you want to have and banish those you don’t want to have you will start to behave in accordance with the new traits that are now part of your personality. Of course it doesn’t happen overnight and that is where the two levels of GraphoTherapy – conscious and subconscious – come into play.
While you are still deliberately writing with the new strokes, it is your conscious mind that is making it happen. The new trait, the new behavior, is not part of your personality yet. But as you practice, you are focusing on what you are doing and how you are writing. Your focus is on the strokes for the new personality traits that you are adding. And as anyone who has even learned anything about the Law of Attraction knows what you focus on expands.
Focus, Focus, Focus
So as you practice, as you focus on the new trait or traits that you are adding to your handwriting, you are focused on them. Not only will you notice as you write the necessary strokes, but you will also notice in your behavior whether you are or are not behaving in accordance with these new personality trait additions or subtractions. You want to act in the new way. That is why you are adding or removing these strokes from your handwriting.
So you, with your heightened awareness of these traits and the behavior associated with them, will notice much, much more than you previously would have, when you are acting in the new way or the old way. And if you find yourself acting in the old way, probably you will immediately do what you can to change it to the new way. After all, you have chosen to change and if you notice yourself not doing this, you most likely will take steps to make sure that you do what is needed to act in the new way you have decided to be.
That is the conscious level of GraphoTherapy. It is still not part of your natural behavior so you have to make the change ‘manually’, but because your focus is on it, you will notice and have the opportunity to make the change at any moment.
And here is the Magic…
Then we get to the subconscious part of GraphoTherapy and this is where the magic really happens.
The subconscious mind is programmed by spaced repetition. This means that if you repeat your new handwriting strokes over and over again, with time between each practice session, after a while your subconscious accepts that this is how you now want to be. It then takes over the job of directing both your writing and your behavior in accordance with what you have been showing it in your practice.
So the strokes you have been practicing writing become your natural way of writing. When these strokes are your natural way of writing, the behavior that goes along with these strokes becomes your natural way of behaving. This is when you have made the complete change and now you are who you have been working to become.
Here is an example
Let’s look at an example. Let’s say you have very day to day goals. This means that you can really do a whole lot more than you think you can, but you are not aware of this and don’t have the confidence to step out and go for it. The trait in handwriting that shows underestimating yourself is the t-bars placed really low on the t-stem.
Your Tarot reading has shown that you are going to have some amazing opportunities opening up for you. But do you have the confidence to take advantage of them? You decide to engage in GraphoTherapy to help.
The stroke for ambitious goals is the t-bar at or near the top of the t-stem, so you decide to practice making your t-bars much higher.
As you practice, every time you write a t-bar high up on the t-stem, you aware consciously aware that this is your goals that you are raising up high.
Conscious & Subconscious GraphoTherapy
This is when conscious GraphoTherapy is working. It is bringing to your awareness every time you write that you want to go after higher goals. So you start looking at how to do that and start moving towards that goal.
Once you find that you are writing those t-bars up high quite without thinking about it that means you have now completed the change and high goals as well as high t-bars are now part of your natural way of writing and being. Subconscious GraphoTherapy has taken over. You have succeeded. You will now start to gradually notice that you aim higher without even really thinking about it. It has become your natural way of looking at life.
The Tarot told you about opportunities and your Handwriting and GraphoTherapy have given you the tools to make the very best of whatever opportunities come your way. They have worked together to create the change you wanted. You have made “Change your Handwriting, Change your Life” work for you.
And here’s the Bonus
And there is even a bonus. If at a later date you find your t-bars sliding back down the t-stem a bit, if you just practice pushing them up again, you have the chance to get your goals back up there again before the slide starts to show in your behavior because it shows in the writing before it shows in your actions.
There are many, many opportunities to make changes to your life by making changes to your handwriting. However, raising your goals is one I can not only vouch for on behalf of many of my clients, I can also vouch for it personally.
This is one of the very first changes I made to my writing when I first started to study Graphology and GraphoTherapy. So I can tell you from firsthand knowledge that it works. A couple of times over the 25+ years since I first raised my t-bars and my goals, I have seen the t-bar start to slip a little bit down. Each time I have practiced again till it stayed perched on top of the t-stem naturally again. And it works. Not only have my t-bars soared but my confidence in my abilities has soared every bit as high.
It can work on whatever change you want to make
Perhaps goals are not what you would work on. There are countless options. Whatever you need to get what you want. Whomever you want to be to achieve what you want to achieve. Whatever the Tarot tells you about that you don’t want to miss out on … or if it’s a difficult situation showing in the cards, whatever you need to avoid it… either way, your handwriting and GraphoTherapy can help you achieve it.
