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.

I have been receiving loads of sighing complaints from clients, women and friends about the hardships they have to go through every month. No…it is not about cooking for their hubby or children after going back home from work nor is it about their difficulties to tone their bodies (I understand that difficulties).
Yes…it is about the cramps, stinging headaches, body weakness and vomiting every month.
A number of clients, members of families, friends and even friends of friends had approached me to ask if there is anything they can do to feel better from these pains every month.
Personally, I know how it feels. No…not because people told me how it feels, it is because I went through these before. The worst was, sleep does not ease my pain nor does taking painkillers help. The worst of all to manage was I started to vomit and failed to do anything for one whole day.
What are the causes of this unbearable monthly attack?
With reference to an article from Medicine.net; Cramps develop when clots or pieces of bloody tissues from lining of the uterus pass through the cervix. It is more painful if the cervical canal is narrow. In response to prostaglandins and other chemicals reactions, the uterine contracts resulting in menstrual cramps.
Uterine muscles contract which lead to constriction in blood supplies to endometrium. In fact this will block the delivery of oxygen to the tissue of the endometrium. It then results from breaks down and dies.
What are other ways to relieve the menstrual cramps?
Tracee Cornforth wrote an article at About.com, suggested ways such as taking a warm bath, aromatherapy and heating pad at lower abdomen to relief the pain. Herbal remedies such as evening primrose oil, cramp bark, unicorn root etc will be of help too.
In fact, there are many other solutions available out there to solve this pain.
The objective of this article is to share with you on what homeopathy can do to manage and ease the menstrual cramp complaint?
Before that, to know more about homeopathy, you can check out in our page ‘About Homeopathy’.
In homeopathy consultation, we believed in understanding the character of the symptoms of menstrual cramp. Different individuals will encounter different kind of pains and its causes. Therefore, different remedies will be prescribed to each individual.
Some menstrual cramps are not common, it is irregular and the discharges differ from normal (probably scanty, light red etc). Further consultations are essential before we could advise the suitable remedies.
Right now, I will be explaining to you on the common complaints generally experienced during menstrual period.
Feel like fainting and weak during menses?
The reason why one felt like fainting during menses is due to the deficiency of phosphate of iron salt in the body. The limited amount of iron causes the circulation of blood to increase, without the right sufficient energy causing the body to become weak. High levels of prostaglandins (a chemical release by the lining of uterus) are one of the main causes.
I will normally prescribe a remedy, Ferr. Phos which originates from the mineral phosphate of iron, developed using homeopathy technique. Its function is to carry oxygen to all parts in our body. It will help to toughen cellular structure of circular walls of the blood vessels.
Ferr Phos is also an agent for developing healthy blood cells, thus it naturally helps to ease out any pains.
The remedy will work well with Kali. Phosphate to strengthen the nerve tissue which had consumed the gray matter of the brain.
How about the cramps?
Cramps occurred when white fibers contract and there is muscle contraction of the uterus. This is due to the deficiency of magnesium phosphate cell salts. White fibres will draw up, contract and thus reduce the cavity of the stomach.
Mag. Phosphate acts to supply the deficiency to the muscles. Thus, rid off the pain that commonly occurs during menses which is caused by contraction of muscles.
How to consume the homeopathic remedies?
Ferr.Phos, Kali Phos and Mag Phos are to consume within 7 days, before your period start. This is to prevent from experiencing the cramps and body weakness when menses start.
Consumption of homeopathic remedies can be stopped once completely heal.
Homeopathic remedies come in sweet globules which will melts on your tongue. It is not to be consumed with water.
The best result will be if you complement the above with exercises. Exercise makes big difference and it speed up the healing process. This will help to increase the endorphin level, in which the brain will recognize it as pain relief.
Just be consistent and you will observe motivating results. However, I will avoid exercising during my period week.
Some simple exercises like doing a set of 25-30.
3) Lie on the floor and bend your legs towards your chest and straight out.
4) Head for a short run (eg. 1.2km) once a week to pump blood to your heart, brain and whole body.
How it works? You must be wondering whether handwriting analysis really tells us about anyone’s personality.
Well, not to stiffly bore you with the 100 years of handwriting analysis history, accentuating the endless reputable analysis by graphologists, I decided to digress.
I figured out from my personal observation that whatever we feel and think, are unconsciously portrayed through our actions. Simply, if we dislike someone, we will distant ourselves from him or her. That literally explains how handwriting analysis works. Our character --> our behavior --> reflected in handwriting.
Let’s look at how the science of handwriting analysis sync with our behavior in daily life.
The following handwriting is someone who is a fast thinker,impatient and usually in a hurry. Look at the top pointy strikes on the letters m, n and r. The association on the way it is written, that is swiftness in writing speed sync with the writer’s behavior in handling situations.
Check out on your bosses’ handwritings. Most of them possess this type of writings. Observe how they handle situations. You should find the similarities. Believe me…you will.
On the other hand, if you see flat and round top on those letters as follows..then, please be ready with all the facts in your argument before you enter your boss’ room. Your boss possessing this stroke is more methodical and procedural.He wants evidences and figures.
How it syncs with life? Just imagine this...you will need more effort and time to write like this - extending the top of the ‘m’, before the last stroke reach the base. This explains, you need time to collate any facts to support your thoughts before making decisions.
Solely figuring out the individual strokes to conclude about your personality is inadequate and ineffective. To implement this science accurately,handwriting needs to be analyzed as a whole. The best results to identify our strengths and weaknesses, and areas to improve require combining all handwriting traits for analysis.
What is the Principle of Homeopathy?
Homeopathy is the science of healing to develop and restore our body back to order and restoring health to the sick.
How Homeopathy Remedies are made?
Homeopathy remedies are not made of drugs and chemicals which can cause severe side effects. It is prepared using a technique of serial dilution with forceful shaking (succussion) in which this increases the effect of the treatment.
This process of dilution continues until the original substance disappears completely. Because the remedies are very diluted, they are extremely safe. The clinical experience of homeopathy shows that the micro-dose is effective.
What Are The Right Remedies
The choice of remedy is based fundamentally on the rule of nature - The Law of Similars. This law states ‘like cures like’ where a medicine can cure a sick person if it can cause similar sickness in a healthy person.
Imagine this; If you peel an onion, your eyes will start to burn, itch and water with runny nose and sneezing. If you had a cold with similar symptoms like runny nose, watery eyes and sneezing, a homeopathic micro-dose of the remedy Allium cepa (red onion) would help the body to heal by itself.
Brief History of Homeopathy
The law of similar was made known by Samuel Hahnemann in the early 1800s who was a doctor and a chemist in Germany. He discovered this by testing small doses of medicine on himself.
By 1900, the acceptance of homeopathy is tremendously overwhelming in countries such as France, Germany, Mexico, Argentina, India and Great Britain. In fact, the family doctor to England's Queen Elizabeth is a homeopathic physician.
What Are The Basis to Prescribe The Remedies?
Apart from relying on the symptoms of the disease, we will explore on the patient psychological and physical state as the fundamental before prescribing any homeopathy remedies. The concept tailored to each person. Different individual with different symptoms will be prescribed with different remedies even they are experiencing the same sickness.
Sources of Homeopathy Remedies
Homeopathy remedies originates from plants, mineral etc. The original substance is diluted in liquid repeatedly, and vigorously shaken with each dilution.
What to expect during a visit to a homeopathic practitioner
Homeopath will normally collate details about yourself that relates to your feelings, sensations, sensitivity, thinking, Information such as your condition relating to sleep, eating habits, digestion, mind state etc will be asked.
This will assist Homeopaths to individualize and find the specific and most similar remedy for the patient's condition.
What diseases can be treated with homeopathy?
Homeopathy treatment does not treat diseases specifically, but treat the person who is sick.
Be it chronic or acute diseases, all of the symptoms (physical, mental or emotional) are evidence of the individual’s body and mind state.
Can homeopathy help to heal individuals with mental disorders, trauma, depression, anxiety and other related psychological problems?
Homeopathic remedies are medium to stabilize problems related to emotional and psychological disorders. It usually will assist patients to go through the process of recovery more rapidly.
Try to look into several vital strokes in your interviewees’ handwritings. One of those is the letter T.
Possessing a well placed t-bar signifies one’s healthy self-esteem. And this will help you as an employer, recruiter or Human Resource personnel to check whether the candidate suits the position he or she is applying.
Last four years, I had encountered three same situations while I was a HR coordinator in a manufacturing company, recruiting for production operators.
In three different recruitment exercises, I had selected three production operators with this handwriting stroke.
Possessing the strokes & other evidences signifying optimistic and positive minded individuals, I was confident they will not disappoint me. I hope they will not create trouble and will not resign for at least one year (the most sickening part of this job is when candidates resigning less than 3 months, and I have to start advertising and interviewing all over again).
Ahh..and surprisingly, the candidates tendered their resignation within 4-6 months. I was pondering what was wrong with my analysis. I expected those three to be one of the high flyers in the company.
I realized that I overlooked on this when the 3rd candidate informed me that she found a job doubled the current salary within a short period. Individuals with this trait just do not stop there. They are confident about themselves and they know they will achieve what they want.
These people are clearly high achievers and yearn for success. They are individuals who believe in themselves and know there is something better for them. Why would they stay for a job which pays them only 600 bucks, working in a non-air-conditioned area with not much opportunity for them to grow?
They should be recruited for positions with challenges and has potential for them to grow. From those encounters, I learnt that some traits just do not synchronize with certain positions.
So, if you have doubts after selecting your candidates for the position you had advertised, you can just contact me for an analysis.
