Does hearing your name fire-up an inner strength in your soul and fill you with a warm surge of energy? If the answer is no, you might like to adopt a ‘spirit name’ that better fits your true nature. Doing so can transform your spiritual path and fill you with a greater sense of who you are at your core.
In many esoteric practices, your title has a magical meaning.“It’s your unique energy vibration,” says earth-based healer Denise Linn. “Some native tribes believe your name carries your essence, while others say it’s how your power animals and other mystical guardians recognize you. Certain traditions claim it can evoke specific qualities; for example, ‘Eagle Eye’ will bring you excellent sight and the ability to see the bigger picture.”
Shaman Barbara Meiklejohn-Free says that what you are called influences the way you live. “By taking on a new name you are welcoming your soul into the physical world.
It can bring you a greater sense of well-being and wholeness. Words have power, so by addressing yourself in a new way, you can change the path of your destiny. When you change your name to something that chimes with your soul, a sudden shift takes place and you become empowered – your personal power activates when you say it out loud for the first time.”
So if you feel like your birth name doesn’t fit with your soul’s purpose, it’s time to find a new one.
