What’s in a name?

Sticks & stones may break my bones
But names can never hurt me
But is that really true?
A name is more than a selection of letters put together to give something or someone a label. A name is an energetic force which grows stronger the more it’s used. And this force affects all aspects of our lives. Just think how scared people are of the word ‘cancer’. Or how we long to hear those three little words ‘I love you’.
The associations with these words, and many others, are significant but, on an even more fundamental level the energy of the words and the energy of each letter in the word can have a profound subliminal effect on us.
The study of this effect is called Numerology. Perhaps an unusual word in itself as we’re talking about letters but numerology works on the basis that the fundamental language of our world is mathematics which underlies nature, the solar system, music and the spoken word. As such each letter of our alphabet relates to an archetypal number and a particular type of energy.
Numerology also considers dates so combine your date of birth with your name and you can get a very accurate picture of you: your skills, talents, character, strengths, weaknesses, life purpose and even karmic debt that you may be here to repay in this lifetime.
So what happens if you change your name? For example, if you get married and adopt your husband’s surname or double barrel both surnames. Or perhaps you’re called by a nick name in certain situations.
Well, name changes can add nuances and differences to your character. However, if the differences are large it will take time to assimilate the new energy into your overall energetic blueprint. When you do you may discover new aspects of you or, if the difference from your original energy is very diverse you may feel as if there’s a fight or conflict going on inside you. It may even manifest physically with a schizophrenic condition.
Of course, some people change their name because they want to harness a different energy. Many actors take stage names and method actors will live the character they are
playing, including adopting the character’s name, to take on the energy and produce an Oscar winning performance.
Others try to cheat the system and change their name in order to change their lives. Sometimes this works – if they used a skilled numerologist to ensure they get the change
right. But, underneath it all, their original, intended-by-the-universe, essence will still be there. The key to getting the right energy in the first place is to use the services of a numerologist when deciding on a name for your unborn child.
Numerology can also be applied to businesses. A business incorporation date is deemed its birthday and the name can be assessed or chosen numerologically to bring the
right type of energy to that business.
Combine this with Feng Shui to get the business branding right and any venture can maximise its chance of success.
We live in a world where everything is labelled – even us. A name tag is certainly better than a number. And, without a doubt, our name can alter people’s perception of us, our own perception of us and the mark we leave on the world.
Your name says a whole lot about you and what you decide to call others may have a big effect on them.
