Meghan Markle’s Handwriting on Larry King Show

As Meghan Markle prepares to enter a new royal life, she is stepping into the spotlight and millions have taken a shine to her.

With good reason.

If you have not watched this video, separate from the Larry King youtube video…..prepare to be quite inspired AND impressed. She is winning over the hearts of millions.

 

Watch this inspiring and impressive video.   Then come back and I will show a screen shot of her handwriting from when she was on Larry King and say a few words about her handwriting.

 

I am waiting to hear back from multiple sources on the handwriting samples of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. But in the meantime, I have taken a screen shot of this interview with Larry King. Meghan is a calligrapher so I am stretching to look beyond the calligraphy and peer into the handwriting.  The calligraphy strokes while they may look pretty, show some things that would reveal less than desired traits in one’s normal handwriting, for SURE.

This is why when it comes to grapho-therapy, I say with shivers, please do not try this at home.

(Without the help of a seasoned and well trained graphologist)
What you repeatedly impress upon your subconscious mind with your handwriting creates new neuropathways in the brain.  So in other words, it can create new patterns of behavior and beliefs.  So you want to make sure you are writing strokes that empower you, not disempower you.   For right now, I will presume this is not Meghan’s normal handwriting since she is doing a calligraphy piece for Larry King.

 

The handwriting itself, separate from all the flourish and other calligraphy strokes reveal she is all “heart”. From this sample and one other I have seen, she is a true extrovert (yet selective in whom she trusts and will truly open up to) but the (other) handwriting sample I’m waiting on permission to post, showed much more which I hope to comment on soon. In that sample the handwriting expressed to me she was feeling somewhat constrained and even some repressed. Stepping into the role of royalty, it would seem she now has a chance to step into the spotlight, the sunshine and let her true nature show.

Trump, Clinton, Sanders: My CNN Interview

You may be interested in seeing the article published by CNN after they contacted me to analyze Trump, Hillary and Bernie’s handwriting.

 

You can read the FULL CNN Article here:  http://www.cnn.com/2016/06/11/politics/presidential-handwriting/
(Then come right back as there is extra information, below)

Prior to this interview I had written a post here about Trump’s handwriting.

Here it is:

For years, graphologists have kept Donald Trump’s signature on our radar screen and in our files because we loved to comment on it.  Heck, this  was even before he was called “The Donald”.

And certainly decades longer before the idea of his running for Presidency was just a gleam in someone’s eyes!

The long standing old signature:

TrumpsFormerSignature

 

To the best of my knowledge the one below is a more recent signature than in all past years.   And yes yes yes…. I see changes.

 

TrumpNewerSignature

What hasn’t changed:  His writing is and always will be very angular.

Extreme angles in writing (especially in m’s and n’s) reveal an extremely rocket sharp, quick analytical mind.  One who is quick to size up a situation.  We’re talking lightening speed quick.  Exploratory thinker, dissect an issue into oblivion, quick decision maker…..but the more angles, the more harsh in judgment.  The more black and white thinking…  I’m right, you’re wrong judgmental thinking.

No one would ever accuse Mr. Trump of having soft, round or curvy handwriting.

To clarify, think Princess Diana for rounded handwriting.

 

Autographed writing and signature Princess Diana

The person with rounded handwriting takes a softer approach to problem solving, often harboring a philosophy of  Hugs not Drugs.   (Not to mention Princess Diana was a kindergarten teacher’s assistant and taught dance to the young.)

Back to Donald Trump:

What I immediately noticed about the newer signature were new secrecy strokes in the “o” and “d”.

He is not writing as carefully or perfectly as before. (You could place a ruler under the first signature) And the slant has changed.  Leaning right toward more impulsiveness.

Last but not least the p creates a larger phallic symbol than before.   I love how Michelle Dresbold coined it, “Me…big hunk of man.”

During this process, we make fun of  all politicians equally.  It helps us stay sane.

I was interviewed by print and live media in the last several elections.  In my online signature analysis course we had some fun with the candidates for the 2008 candidates.

Handwriting analysis is an ancient science that has been around since the days of Aristotle.  The more you learn the more you want to learn, the more questions you have.  Understanding graphology takes you on a learning journey of a lifetime.

Holy Hutzpa! It’s National Handwriting Week.

Batman and Robin have got nothing on us!   Pen in ink well We are fast encroaching upon National Handwriting Week– this year it is January  19th   through January 25th and is centered around National Handwriting Day  which is  based on the birthday of John Hancock’s birthday, January 23rd.

John Hancock's Sig on Declaration of Independence

National Handwriting Day was formerly established by the Writing Instrument Manufacturer’s Association back in 1977.  Thank you!  My hat’s off to you.

This morning I stumbled upon a simply delightful blog post by Barb Riley from 3 years ago about this national holiday.  I am pleased to share points from the delightful thread and embellish the ideas a little further from a graphologist’s point of view.

Barb shares that she had a “curious obsession hobby. I used to practice copying other people’s cursive styles until I morphed my own to look just like theirs….You might wonder if I had identity issues—if perhaps, secretly, it was some type of insecure desire to be just like my peers. A valid notion, and one with a very small element of truth, but really, the main reason was to satisfy my appetite for whimsy. Switching up handwriting has always been a fun way to express my mood de jour….I suppose my obsession with writing in different styles back then is what led me to a love of creating fictional characters today: a fun way to try on different pen caps for a while, to live out someone else’s story, and in turn, learn more about myself.

Whatever the case, writing by hand makes a much better connection for me than writing on the computer. It’s therapeutic, cathartic, and just plain fun for me. Like the days I used to sit and color with my toddler-aged kids, writing by hand comforts me. I wouldn’t give it up for the world, and I’m doing everything I can to encourage my kids to understand its benefits, too…..How about you? Do you like to write by hand, or have you abandoned the practice in this age of digitized communication? Do you have any stories about your love (or hate) of handwriting? Did you ever used to practice your signature over and over again like I did?”

And a lively thread ensued from there.    Naturally I feel compelled to add my 2 cents worth from a graphologist’s point of view.

When it comes to changing your writing, I caution people, “Do not try this at home!”  I’m being a little tongue in cheek, but not really.

How my handwriting has changed since kindergarten

There is a science to strategically changing your writing to change your life – it’s called grapho-therapy.  So when you “mind your p’s and q’s” it could be the difference of snarls of struggle or surprising success.

Do not worry that your handwriting is not as beautiful or even as legible as your grandmother’s.

Messy handwriting may simply mean you have a lot of interesting things going on.  Anyway, you are in good company as the world uses the computer more and more.

A teacher told me once that my writing looks like it was written with my feet! To which I replied, ‘like a foot note’.  Badum.”

However I insist that human beings still write more than is commonly thought these days. And there are a few of you out there who still take pleasure in the craft and are even still proud of your writing.   In classrooms of all kinds,  I still see many putting pen to paper as they take notes and who bothers to pull out a computer to jot down a grocery list?  There is something romantic about receiving a handwritten note in a Valentine’s card.

I would love to hear your ideas of ways you’ve used or seen handwriting used in recent past.  I’d love to see if there is something I can add to my growing list!

Margaret Thatcher’s Handwriting

Recognized as a prime minister who transformed the face of Britain, Margaret Thatcher will be  remembered as one of the most important figures in modern British history.

After 11 years in power – and winning three elections, she had been  prime minister  longer than anyone else in the 20th century.

I love seeing what the “Iron Lady’s” handwriting reveals.  Margaret Thatcher had a reputation for being tough and sticking to her guns.
The handwriting  reveals the strength that comes from self discipline and focus.
Many breaks along the baseline, within the words, reveal an extremely developed “6th sense” or keen sense of intuitive perception.
Enormous sense of dedicated focus (small size of writing) and the bending of her will for improvement (mushroom shaped t crossings), the handwriting also reveals her huge dreams, goals and visioning for the future.  (The t crossings reach far into the sky, with nary a touch of connection to the t stem.)
Her very public image of strength and fortitude doesn’t mean that in the dark of the night or the private moments within her own Soul that she was immune from moments of feeling uncertain and downright cautious.   (Notice the long horizontal extension of the ending stroke in her first name in the first sample up above.)  Upon further investigation, the writing reveals she would channel those moments into creative tenacity.
Much like this picture I came across very recently.  Now I know why I saved it.  The picture is called “Tenacity”.
Thatcher’s writing reveals an instinctive, intuitive Lady – with a drive stemming from anger that she clearly used as fuel.
Some people call anger, potency.  I resemble that remark.  (*<*)
She was one determined woman.
In a presentation I gave last night, someone asked, “What does the reversed loop in her  letter f mean?”I”m glad you asked.

Someone from her past has disappointed her.  She turned her back from that person, shut the door…….and moved on.  Doesn’t mean she ever forgot about it.
While we’re at it……….notice the “g” in the word good that looks like a figure 8?  Prime (pun intended) example of one who possessed a natural talent when it came to thoughts, words and ideas flowing together with ease.
Give her elbow room or suffer the consequences.  For in the spaces, she could show up, powerfully.It brings to mind these words of  wisdom from the poet, Kahlil Gibran-  and I think the message is Universal, not just for Lovers.

“Let there be spaces in your togetherness, And let the winds of the heavens dance between you.  Love one another but make not a bond of love:  Let it rather be a moving sea between the shores of your souls.  Fill each other’s cup but drink not from one cup.  Give one another your break but eat not from the same loaf.  Sing and dance together and be joyous, but let each one of you be alone.  Even as the strings of a lute are alone though they quiver with the same music.  Give your hearts, but not into each other’s keeping.  For only the hand of Life can contain your hearts.  And stand together, yet not too near together:  For the pillars of the temple stand apart, And the oak, tree and the cypress grow not in each other’s shadow.”
