Can you decipher the address which was written on the envelope you have received recently from your friend? Legibility is another factor that we should look into the next time you send a letter to someone. You would not want the postman to send your letter to your neighbor's, don’t you?
What does it mean if you have difficulties deciphering what is written on the envelope?
When the person who is writing did not take that into account whether the person reading could read it, what does it tells you? It shows how the writer did not stop for one second and think whether the recipient or in this case the postman is able to see what was written. The writer is not mindful and care about whatever he is saying is understood by the other person.
For consistent handwriting, we could expect that the writer is more open and straightforward. He is who he said he is.
At times, we will encounter with handwriting which appears to be calligraphic and decorative. Elegance. Like how we see in period era movies with curves, long initial strokes and long ending strokes.
This shows how the writer values his worth, excellence and pride. He does things to impress, to appeal and enchant with a tint of pretense.
He has his own impression about his own power that could be contradicting to reality. Obsessing with superiority.
How about the consistency in handwriting between the envelopes and the letter inside?
I have highlighted most of the time in my seminars, regarding the significance of the same formation of writer’s signature and main texts.
When the texts on the envelope is the same as the letter in it, which comprises of the stroke, formation, pressure and all others, it shows how the writer is in harmony with himself. He is who he said he is without the need to hide. We can say that he is comfortable in the world he is in.
And on the other hand, when the writing on envelope is different from the text on the paper, it clearly shows how the writer puts a different identity when he is with others. It is the opposite of the previous trait.
A few years ago, a client had shown me a letter written by their tenant. She asked me is there anything wrong with this tenant of theirs. There were about 3 or 4 letters and all of these letters were so extremely different. It was like written by a different person.
And I asked them, “This tenant of yours does he kept changing his style of talking when he approached you, inconsistent in how he expressed himself?”
They replied, “Yes. Sometimes he is nice, sometimes he raised his voice for no reason and then there are times he looks erratic.”
She and her colleagues were actually quite worried if one day this tenant will do something unpleasant. I responded that it will not be surprising if he will. As long as you are careful in the way you speak to him to not probe anything sensitive that could lead to those possibilities.

Our psychological structure can be expressed through the layout and space in our handwriting. What we mean by psychological structure here are our behavior, how we socialize, the way we think and feel, and our entire personality construct.
Today, let us look into how we normally write addresses on envelopes.
Many of us might have not written to someone a letter as often as we used to. But that does not mean you have not done at least once in your lifetime.
Basically, it doesn’t matter the size or the shape of the envelope, technically we were taught at school to write on the center of the envelope. Why? Because generally, writing in the center looks more organised, and more formal.
And well in graphology, it does tell us the same thing. It tells us about how the writer is specific in measuring the exact placement of the recipient’s address in order to be accurate in its measurement of margin and space.
How the first impression looks of the letter is essential to him. And he wants to be perceived as someone who is meticulous.
Although we were taught to write like this in school, you must wonder why each one of us ended up writing everywhere but the center.
In science of handwriting analysis, that is what it is. That is how your mind works and therefore automatically or another word for this is subconsciously reflected on your handwriting.
Let us understand what it means when we write the recipient’s address nearer to the top section of the envelope.
It is similar to the concept of writing on the upper zone area in the basics of studying handwriting.
So, what does this tells you about the writer?
This normally defines how the writer focuses on his or her tendency to look into matters more philosophically. In which this means prioritizing high value on the more complex forms of the knowledge they are researching into. We can also expect the writer to decide logically without being influenced by her feelings or emotions.
Another style is when the writer placed it nearer to the bottom section of the envelope. We can expect that this writer is looking more into the practical aspect of the things she does and decides. She is interested in the outcome, the practical instead of talk and talk about how fantastic it will turn out.
If you have read the article which I wrote Would You Recruit Her? She Writes Near to The Left Margin with Wide Right Margin, explaining the location of where you place the texts on the paper signifies how one look into the past and future, you will understand this next example.
The left part of the paper or anything you write on is normally referred to as the past, while the right side of it is the future.
When you see that the address is written on the left side of the paper, remember what it means? It has something to do with the writer’s past.
It tells us about how the past is clouding the writer’s decision. We can expect that the she might have resistance to tell her opinions worried on what she had done or wanted to do.
Sometimes the fear could be about failing, successful, being judged and anything related to their past. However, on the other hand, because she is cautious, it could be observed that she is gracious and polite before expressing their views.
And what about the ones who write the address on the right side of the envelope?
This writer is more comfortable to mingle when they are mixed into a new crowd. We can expect that she is confident to talk to someone she meets for the first time.
Other than that, remember the right and left connection with the past and future.
So, what can we expect from this writer regarding her view on her what is waiting for her next?
Yes, you are right.
She looks forward for what is there ready for her.
Whenever we observed any of these types of handwriting on the next envelope your received from your pen pals, friends or family members, learn to observe and understand the science of it.
Please do not start to pinpoint “Hey you are this or that” to them. That is not how studying handwriting works. Learn by finding out more not solely by the envelopes. Study also the letters and consistency of their handwriting every time they send one. You will learn more when you are interested.

Bloated stomach has been one of the common issues you and I may have been experiencing. We could have tried exercising it off, sit-ups, abs exercising but still it does not go away. Bloating stomach could be the cause of flatulence, constipation, indigestion, or other possibilities. It can appear in many forms -- hard, soft, rounded, shiny etc. If your doctor has not diagnosed anything, and if it is uncomfortable that it is bothering you, please do visit your doctor for a medical check-up.
I am writing this based on my personal experiences using Schussler Biochemic tissue salts remedies to overcome the bloating stomach I have been experiencing for the past two years.
Why it took me two years to find the suitable remedy suitable for myself?
In practical, I believed in the effectiveness of the science of Schussler Biochemic. Sharing it here is not to merely inform you of the Biochemic Consultation service I am offering. I will write something which works for me as a user. I have been learning Schussler Biochemic tissue salts and Homeopathy since 2005, and have been using these remedies since I was a toddler prescribed by my dad who is a Homeopathy.
I had also tried several remedies such as TCM and supplements Vitamin E and C tablets. But my body is sensitive to supplements, so I had no choice but to stick to the alternatives such as Homeopathy, TCM, Biochemic.
This article is focusing on how Biochemic Calc Phos 6x could aid with digestion.
What is Schussler Biochemic’s tissue salt Calcarea Phosphorica 6x remedy made of?
I have decided to share with you guys what this is through this diagram, the simplified version to understand the summary of Calc. Phos or the common name Phosphate of Lime.
When to take Calc. Phos 6x?
Calc. Phos is advised to be taken after meals to aid with digestion. Normally, it can be taken around 10 to 30 minutes right after meals. It is flexible depending on the needs of your body which you have to learn to observe and analyse. Remember that you own your own body and you have to learn on how it works, what is vulnerable to, anything that is good for you and those that made you uncomfortable.
What kind of results can you expect with Calc. Phos?
This is depending on how your body reacts and depending on other factors such as whether you have sufficient tissue salts in your body to aid with the passing motion. Personally, for mine, some remedies could have effect between 10 to 30 minutes. I will have the urge to go to the toilet and pass motion. And the waste is normally not solid. It will flow out easily without the need to force myself. If I take it at night before sleep, the next morning I need not force myself to pass motion.
Also, there will be a reduction in the bloating, but it will not reduce to 100%. Calc Phos functions is to aid with digestion but it might or might not help you to release the waste in your body by passing motion.
The outcome depends on the individual’s body which leads to the next section. What other remedies that complements with Calc Phos which need to be taken after? This is essential and will need a Biochemic Consultant/Practitioner to prescribe to you too. It depends on factors such as elasticity of your bowels, avoid constipation, or strengthen abdomen muscle.
How does it work?
Calc Phos biochemic tissue salt is to replace this tissue salts that could have been loss every day over the years in your body. There are many reasons that could have caused indigestion.
I find one very obvious sleep disruption at night when your body is at rest while your organs are in the process of doing its job. Sleep experts had highlighted in their studies that the organs in the body activates clean our body of toxins between 11pm to 3am. And when you are having issue with your sleep probably because you think too much about your work or eat too late at night, this will affect the whole body system functions.
That is why Calc Phos is also prescribed to ease sleeping at night. Most of the time, when you normally wake up at night to pee, your bladder could hold on to it and let you sleep all night long without disruption. There will be differences. As I had mentioned earlier, be observant about how your body works and you will be amazed by it.
What are the other remedies that complements with Calc Phos?
There could be other possible reasons which could be the cause of constipation. Therefore, at times there is a need to complement Calc Phos with other remedies such as Calc. Fluor, Mag Phos, Nat Mur or Nat Sulph.
Calc Fluor helps to restore elastic fibres, resume their contractility and function properly. Mag Phos is taken when it could not restore the normal condition in a reasonable time. While Nat Mur and Nat Sulph are for effective water distribution in the body when continuity is disrupted. These are useful especially if you noticed that sometimes you could feel bloating in some other parts of your body like face, neck which makes you feel uneasy. You might have tried exercising which at times will not have any effect to reduce that uneasiness.
For my personal condition, I had complemented my Calc Phos with Mag Phos, Nat Sulph, Nat Mur and Calc. Fluor. And I will consume these either after Lunch and Dinner, or after Dinner only.
I could feel that my body will be lighter, reduce in size and more comfortable when I wear my clothes the next day. Sometimes, I will take other Biochemic remedies too to make sure my stomach muscles are in shape. I could observe the difference in my body whenever I didn’t take these the day before. And since then, whenever I will have dinner dates with my friends the next day, I will make sure I will not miss any of these. It does make me feel comfortable hanging out with my friends the next day.
It is a challenging task for us to identify our own limitations and the strengths that is already rooted in us. Why? Especially if we are enveloped with negativity in our life that we doubt our decisions and the way we think. Norms, culture and rules are mainly the guidelines we adhere throughout our life. Definitely, these will be helpful if we are lost during our journey to whatever we are looking for in this life.
We should not ignore the importance of our character and personality. Character is a trait which we mould since we are brought up which includes the genetic composition, while personality has the flexibility for us to carve and will change when we allow it to do so. Building an admirable personality with the character that is already existed in us varies in terms of its challenges and complications. If we could build ourselves to be immune to any negativity that are thrown at us everyday, it definitely will make us live more peacefully with less dilemma. Yes, this is certainly not an overnight process.
Remember, the only person who can make you resilient, happy and thrive is you and for those who believes in God, definitely the one who creates us. If you do not believe in your capabilities and yourself, just think how you can be happy even though you are surrounded with people who could be the light and source of your happiness. This will take from months to years to develop. Takes patience and a lot of doubts during this journey. And if you plan to build it, make sure it is concrete enough that you will not crumble when you are exhausted.
Our character shapes our individuality. The disposition which we mould is a composition from our minor traits. Cubic of knowledge, experiences and reflections make-up the foundation of absoluteness bolstering our core authentic nature.
One of the edifications which I never forget from my religious class during my teenage years is the formula ‘Building foundation.’ Our morals, knowledge and experiences that we build since we are at our early age is the foundation that leads every phases in of our life.
My lecturer asked one of my classmates who studied Architectural, “What is the most important phase to construct a building and will take the longest time to form?” Silence.
He then continued, “Did you realised that the stage that is most time-consuming, costly and tedious in all buildings are the erection of the base and pillars?” … “And that is how human beings are. How metaphoric and logic is that? Forming a positive character begins from when we are young. That defines our moral and value which will act as the substance and guide whenever we stray from our path.”
It took us less than 20mins to build ours, the shortest time taken and least artistic straw tower compared to the other teams. Nonetheless, till date I am still proud of our achievements. It is the only one survived as of to date with this yellow tower.
“Personal thank you to my educators who had shared the importance of attitude, behaviour, characters, morals, education, ambitions, to be grateful and enjoying the moments in life”.

The consistency of the relationship between self-esteem and fears traits that complement each other is yet to be researched. The healthy self-esteem trait leading to optimism and overcoming fear of exploring opportunities; with the trait on limitation in self-esteem that coincide with fear to try opportunities of tomorrows to achieve goals.
From the compilation of 80 handwriting samples, I noticed the consistency of these traits complementing each other. These handwriting samples were extracted from a hundred over handwritings of undergraduates and working adults from social and educational events.
85% of the handwritings samples shows a high t-bar placement which typically signifies healthy or high self-esteem on the other hand showing other supporting traits that these individuals managed to overcome their past experiences and fears. They tend to look forward to what their future has available for them. This can be seen by their moderate spacing on their right margins. Other supporting handwriting traits signifying the above will not be highlighted in this article.
On the other hand, about 95% of the samples had shown low t-bars placement which identifies low/moderate self-esteem. This is in addition to the large space left on the right margin. The analysis shows that the individuals seems to be afraid of trying, or cautious before heading on to the possibilities that are there for them. The left slanted writing that seems to be pulling the letters away from the right supports the explanations. This is an interesting pattern that reflects how an individual is trying to encourage himself to try to move forward but was hold off due to the inhibiting fears, external influences or other factors affecting his decisions. This can be seen by how the slants are constantly pulling towards the left away from the lower baselines where it is supposed to head.
This research is yet to be explored in terms of practical aspects of the outcome. Even though Individuals were analysed and the results of analysis were confirmed to be accurate by them personally, its real life observations is yet to be explained.
Claws in lower loops in 'y' 'j' and 'g' are one of the unusual traits found in handwriting. So far, I had only encountered two individuals with this trait. This trait is known to indicate that the individual feels that deep in him, he does not deserve anything good to happen. He will mess up with things that happen in his life. He could have experienced some disappointments moments in his life and some matters that are yet to be settled that leads to lower self-confidence and fear of failure. Just deal with this kind of person with patience and cautions. On the other hand, I observed that during our analysis moments, one of the individuals with this trait tend to hold his partner close to him throughout the time.Whenever she moved away, he held her back to him.
There are many definitions of success,
Be it academically, professionally or socially.
But what is important is that as much as we attempt to take reference to it en route to finding our own,
We must never take the definitions as the gospel truth.
For we must see the above as guidelines,
And in our own capacity, make the effort to define our own success.
Allow me to put forward five points one should consider,
When attempting to define success in his/her respective life journey.
1) Believe In Yourself.
The first step in defining your own success, is knowing that you are good enough for it. Many a times we become our own enemy in our journey towards success even before we begin. We can moderate our expectations of success by taking it a step at a time, but we should never lower our value and undermine our potential to achieve greater things in that process. Have the hope, keep the faith, for you are destined for greater things this lifetime, in your own rights that is.
2) Everyone’s Worth Is Different.
The second step in defining your own success, is understanding that everyone is different, so are their worth. Everyone is born different, and therefore it’s only fair to say that we bring forward different value proposition to the world as well. We can hear stories of others succeeding and thriving in a particular circumstance, but we must not mistake their worth for ours. Sure, we must strive to succeed, but there is no need to impose their worth as ours, whilst conveniently jettisoning our own. We are all brought into this world to make a difference, so acknowledge that, determine your own worth for the world, and use that to define your success and find happiness in your life.
3) Find And Serve Your Purpose.
The third step in defining your own success, is to find your true purpose in life, and serve it. Success can come in various forms, be it wealth, fame, power or recognition. But the big question you need to ask yourself before all that is: what are you going to do with your success when it comes to you? That answer, will be the reason, and purpose that drives you to succeed. So never allow yourself to blindly pursue success without understanding your purpose of doing so. And also, never deviate from your purpose while chasing for success in life. Remember, you achieving success is but a means to an end. Exercising your purpose thereafter is but the key and the true end state that you want to be at.
4) There Are No Best Laid Plans.
The fourth step in defining your own success, is to understand that there is never a best laid plan for it. Many of us fall into the trap of thinking that if we spend more time to plan for success, the more robust it will become. But the truth is, the longer we take to plan our success strategy, the more inertia we build. We get overwhelmed by the constant flow of references and experiences from others, that we inevitably end up taking their definitions of success as ours, just because it has been somewhat tested and proven by them.
But, remember points 2 and 3: we are all different in our worth, and we all serve different purpose this lifetime. So quit trying to perfect your plan because, yours is one of a kind. Take just enough references and listen to just enough observations for you to define your own success, and then run with it. You can always reflect and review it along the way. For it’s way better than not having your own defined success to begin with.
5) Be Humble In Your Journey To Your Own Defined Success.
The final step in defining your own success, is to always remember to be humble in your journey towards it. Most times, the best lessons in life are learnt in our journey towards success. So be humble, stay open to feedback, comments and criticisms. For your journey can only get smoother when you allow others to help you, be it through their actions or words. So never think you are too good for advice or help. Always accord yourself some time to listen, acknowledge and reflect on others’ thoughts and advice of you. For the truth is, success tends to come faster to those who are humble and possess a certain level of self-awareness on his/her strengths and weaknesses.

It has been quite a long time I did not write about Biochemic Schussler's remedies. Since an interesting situation occurs awhile ago, I would like to share a short one here. Few moments ago, I had tried the effect of Magnesia Phosphorica 6X on my 5 months old niece. I have been investigating the effect of this remedy since I found out about its existence during my course of study years ago.
Below is a short Synopsis of Magnesia Phosphorica (Mag. Phos)
Mag. Phos 6X is one of Schussler Biochemic remedies. It is the 8th remedy out of 12.
Mag. Phos' molecules are found in white fibres of our nerves and muscles. Nerves and muscles consists of strands of fibres with different colours. Each of it functions as a conductible power for certain functions. The white fibres are in fact control by the molecular function of magnesia cell salt. So when this salt deficiency occurs, the white fibres will contract and this is when spasms or cramps occur. How it works on stomach? When there is deficiency on the walls of the stomach where there are muscular tissue, the white fibres draw up and contract reducing the stomach cavity. Gas is then produced to react and prevent collapse, and by expansion produced a counter force.
Mag. Phos is a remedy suitable for muscles, bloated abdomen due to excess air, stomach cramps and other stomach related problems. It is a proven remedy to reduce the pain in menstrual cramps. From my years of implementing and experimenting its effect, for menstrual cramps, it works very well with Kali Phosphoricum. Apart from that, whenever you could feel that the body is lacking of proper blood circulation, it compliments well if taken with Ferrum Phosphate.
Even though sometimes you feel lack of energy and tired after a day of stress, Mag. Phos can be taken before sleep with Kali Phosphoricum or once in awhile with Calcarea Phosphorica.
My niece had been crying badly for nearly an hour and my family members suspected it has something to do with her stomach which had happened before. This is due to the fact that whenever they massaged her abdomen part, she tends to relax slightly. Therefore, I told my dad (who is also a Homeopathic Practitioner), that we should try Mag. Phos on her.
I had mixed Mag. Phos 6X tincture with a small portion of her eucalyptus oil and apply it on her stomach. While my dad mixed the crushed Mag. Phos globules into a plain drinking water. I then told my mum to apply it on her lips and let my niece sip it subtly. Mixing tincture in plain water is an alternative method to avoid choking for babies.
In less than five minutes, she kept quiet and doze off to sleep.
Biochemistry and Homeopathic remedies will work well if it is applied appropriately in respect to the condition of patients. It needs detailed observation before application. If applied properly, it will work wonders.
Disclaimer: Please prescribe remedies with your homeopathic practitioner's advice. Though Homeopathic and Biochemistry remedies do not contain drugs, it is advisable to seek advice before consuming it.
Probably you would have experience that there are no chances for you to eliminate your weaknesses, and you felt that there is something within you that has been a barrier to try your goals. However, you have no idea what it is. Is it you or external factors.
Apart from understanding yourselves through your life experiences, one of the ways which will help to understand the underlying factors will be through your handwriting.
Have you ever wondered the reasons sometimes you just could not think positively on some aspects of your life, or maybe if you want to try something like continuing your education, you have this overwhelmed thoughts telling you that you do not have enough money or lack of capability such as time, competency etc.
Well, in graphology one of the traits to check is the baseline sloping in your handwriting. If your baseline is declining downwards, you could have this negative thoughts lingering in your mind that could have explained the reasons behind your thinking pattern. This is not a permanent trait that one could not do something with it.
With Graphotherapy, a technique to identify and change/improve a specific handwriting strokes will assist individuals to engage their mind to improve a certain trait that might have a negative impact to the way they think, feels, and do.
Grapholistic International runs handwriting analysis workshops, corporate requests for customized workshops, events analysis and personal consultations to encourage individuals to develop their personality and personal effectiveness. With this, we aim to motivate individuals to think and look at problems they encounter and their dreams in a positive aspect.
