I get asked on occasion to assist someone in changing their birth name. This is common as many people do not
like or are uncomfortable with their birth name. They either don’t like the sound, feel it doesn’t fit them or reminds them of a person they distinctly dislike. You certainly can change your name but always remember, a birth name is a record of experiences brought from past lifetimes that will influence you all of your life. These are vibratory influences that you were born with (or not as in missing letters) and indicate the overall plan for the destiny or expression of this lifetime. The letters in your name reflect your true nature. Under extreme conditions, we normally revert to our true nature.
This name given to you at birth is actually delivered by your soul to your parents subconsciously and impressed upon them during the months before your birth. The middle name can help errors made in creating the name or mitigate stresses from the first name. The birth name creates opportunities for situations that influence us all our entire lives. There can, however, through Soul growth, come a time when one decides to change their birth name. Sometimes it is for reasons of profession, divorce, marriage or due to changes in aspects of one’s individuality. Korra Deaver in her book on “The Master Numbers”, even goes so far as to suggest that “women often choose a married name that gives added strength or stability to their original path or fulfills a missing number. On the other hand, some marriages dissolve because the vibrations of the new name are incompatible with the Soul’s needs and the frustrations and inharmonious conditions which result are unbearable”.
If you are thinking about changing your name or using a nickname, it is wise to have it all checked out numerologically prior to establishing that name as your brand or statement in the world. How will it impact on your birth name and your plans for the future? Certainly the entertainer Madonna chose to use only one of her four birth names when she was ready to move out as a huge name in the entertainment world. This name, Madonna, is a big powerful number 8 name. No doubt about it, she used no other name for her brand and she became her new persona. It was, for her, the correct choice and no doubt came from an inner push that waited for the best time to put into play. If you are just learning to figure out your birth name, remember, do not include additions such an Junior or Jr or placements such as II, III, IV or event V.
