Ancient religions believe that we choose our own names, which would explain why they have an immense affect on our lives. This is illustrated in the Bible when one of the first things God did was to change Sarai’s name to Sarah, and Abram’s name to Abraham.
Interestingly, both new names now have an ‘AH’ in them which they did not have previously. According to Neimology® Science, the eighteen year study on how the placement of the letters in your name indicate how you think, feel and act, the ‘AH’ means ‘gift from God’ or ‘working on God’s behalf’. Both Abraham and Sarah indeed changed at that time and focused their work on behalf of God.
Later Jacobs name became Israel and Saul became Paul, and the list continues. So, why do names carry that much importance? According to the science of Cymatics, the study of the physical impacts of sound, has shown that cell structures, neurological systems, and the body all respond to sounds. The response can be positive or negative. Considering how often we hear our name, connecting behaviors to these sounds is a tenable leap.
Our names release a resonance within the sound that impacts us. Thus, names have an unconscious influence on us. Ancient cultures took naming a child seriously as they understood that a name “says it all” to quote the book, “Know the Name; Know the Person.”
Do we become our names or do our names become us? Both. Each name carries a gift and each a challenge. We don’t get one without the other. Thus, our names have great influence over whom we will become, yet doesn’t dictate the outcome as we constantly are choosing which
side of the various characteristics we wish to display. The first letter in the first name indicates our first impressions of someone while our lasting impression is that which we acquire from the last letter in the first name.
The next time you are asked who are you, and you respond with your name, think about how your name and you are synonymous.
