Our names have power. They give us power over ourselves and they also give others power over us.
Sadness, fear, pain, depression are not always our own feelings. They come from close people, from people who are strongly connected to us, positively or negatively, our parents. These feelings reach us through the channels of consciousness. From one mind to another. In this case to ours. Think about how it sounds when you let your parents call your name in your mind. Or the boss. Or the teacher who may have caused you so much pain. Then you will realize how much power your names have. They are a link between you and the people who are focused on you, willingly or unwillingly.
Are you feeling bad and don’t know why? If you have „irrational“ feelings, then rename yourself. Is there a first name that you would actually much rather have than yours or one that a person has with whom you associate a lot of positive things? Take this first name! Is there a word that once appeared to you? A fancy word, perhaps? A term that means something or nothing tangible, but something good and strong for you? Make it your last name. Take this name that is all yours and known to you alone and say – out loud or in your mind – !I am….!!!“ and take that name. Again take this sentence ten times or fifty times and you will see. The pain, the fear, the depression suddenly have no more focus. You are no longer the one with the old name over which power is exercised. You are now the new one. Keep the new name, because who knows who we really are? The old one, the new one or a completely different one? Names have power but otherwise they are smoke and mirrors. Keep the name – for you – and if someone willfully or unwillingly – exercises power over you, then change into this name and this person with this name then has nothing more to do with the old one, who was so painfully entangled.
