Name Alignment Research has been in the news lately. Okay, not the news outside of this blog but still some news for us, anyway. 🙂
Soul Thrill Research around names is one of my favorite types of Aura Reading Research. Every once in a while, some of you Blog-Buddies share your experiences with it. That got started recently, when Julie shared at Name Alignment Research, a powerful new way to express your soul.
Basically, this technique is a form of Stage Three Energetic Literacy. I research a broad selection of chakra databanks, getting a baseline about aspects of life that matter to you, drawing from a representative sample of your chakra databanks or nadis.
Then we research one choice at a time. First comes the High Heart Chakra Databank for Soul Thrill. If that one works out well, we research others. What is a good choice — for name or for creative activity or for new place to move or for career? That good choice WILL thrill your soul. Plus other chakra databanks will show good results, too.
Incidentally, I love teaching people how to do this type of aura reading research — both in a January workshop to start the new year right and also in personal mentoring. Sometimes clients just like to have me do the aura reading research for them, which is huge fun. KYLIE did that type of research. So, now you have the back story, Blog-Buddies.
In breaking news… in the small world of “Deeper Perception Made Practical… KYLIE wrote the following comment, which I have turned into a Guest Post. My minor edits, links, and headings. The sparkle is pure KYLIE.
10 powerful changes from Name Alignment Research
I am glad my name change inspired you, JULIE! I have not written about my own name change yet because I thought Id wait until its been a year, so I can really look back and compare the difference.
But it is obvious to me already that its been a powerful change. Here are some of the things Ive noticed, three months after my name change:
- Im no longer self-conscious, in the habitual way I used to be.
- Life seems a lot more straightforward in some way that is difficult to define. Many things are just easier for me.
- I feel bolder, more confident, more willing to shine, and even more willing to engage in confrontations (not my strong suit.)
- I am a lot more comfortable being in the spotlight.
- My supervisors and coworkers seem to be paying a lot more attention to what I say, and taking me a lot more seriously.
- Ever since the name change, I have found it easy to imagine myself as a professional with a well-paying job.
- Ive been getting hit on by strangers, not an experience I ever had in the past.
- People smile at me on the street.
- Ive started wearing colorful prints when before I would only wear solid colors.
- My physical health is better.
Overall the name change seems to have freed me up in a lot of ways. And its amazing how much it seems to have affected the way other people perceive me. I wasnt expecting that.
How I prepared for Name Alignment Research
About the name research: I spent months looking at names. Reading movie credits, reading names off tombstones, looking at lists of surnames online, reading baby name books, looking at street signs. I was very thorough.
My new last name, came from a street sign. Hearing the bus driver announce it one day, the sound of it thrilled me.
I never intended to choose a new first namethat seemed way too drastic a change to me. But I had picked out a few middle names and Kylie was one of them. I just liked the sound of it. There were only a few first names that appealed to me, and that was one of them.
What was I pretty dismayed to find out in my Soul Thrill Name Alignment Research session with Rose? My original first name has almost no soul thrill for me: It is encoded with pain and suffering from my life up until now, and is completely not congruent with who I have become.
But part of me wasnt surprised. Somehow I knew that my first name wasnt right for me, I just didnt think I could be bold enough to change it.
One of the reasons I had such trouble picking my last name, was that none of my choices sounded right with my original first name. Both names needed to change
How Soul Thrill Motivated Me
For me, after hearing the name research results, it was not possible for me not to change my whole name. I have done many a soul thrill research session with Rose, I know what she says is true. You cant unlearn something once you know it. I couldnt keep living with that name once I knew how it impacted me.
For people considering doing name change research, I would recommend doing a thorough brainstorm for several last names and first names and middle nameseven if you arent planning to change those names.
Note how you feel about names or name combinations, but dont get super attached to anything. Schedule a session with Rose when it feels like the right time to change your name, but dont feel like you have to have found the perfect name. Just have your possibilities ready3 to 5 names of each type that you like, listing the ones you like the best first.
Like Julie, I found that some last names that appealed to me were a case of been there, done that. I liked the name because Id had that name before in other lifetimes, but it didnt fit who I am now.
Some first names were lovely, but just didnt balance well with the last name. And in my case, a middle name wasnt needed. It would only have diluted the name.
Tips if you are considering a name change
About when to change your name well, Im glad that I did a lot of healing work first. For me the name change was the last step of a transformation already complete. Then again, maybe it doesnt matter what order you do it in. The name will bring changes
I knew it was time. Because I started to be more and more aware of how much I cringed inside, every time I heard someone say my name, and every time I introduced myself to people.
About the name change process: the hardest part was the two weeks before I changed my name, dreading how difficult it would be.
I knew the immediately after my session that I wanted to change it. But I was terrified of doing it.
I would wake up every morning with deep dread about how people might respond when I told them. After two weeks, I couldnt stand to wake up feeling that way another day, so I told people.
The legal part: tedious and annoying, but not at all difficult. Waiting for the legal change to happen (six weeks) was the hard part. Just google name change and your state and youll find info on how to do it.
The amazingly easy part - actually telling people.
I did it by sending an email to all my collleagues, and posting on facebook in the early AM before I came to work. Immediately, tons of really nice emails started pouring in, supporting my choice. I found out a lot of people dont like their names.
I felt incredible the day I told people - bold, happy, light, electric, free.
An aha! I had later: the energy of my new name supported me in making the change.
Yes, Suzanne would have had a really tough time making such a bold shift, and telling people about it. But Kylie did not.
What’s the worst thing that could happen when you change your name?
Most people had surprisingly little trouble adjusting to the change.
A few people still have trouble, but they are getting better at remembering.
Some of my extended family members are a lot less talkative on Facebook, Im guessing they have trouble with it.
Everyone I really care about was thrilled by the change, even people I thought would have trouble with it (more conservative, older friends.)
Interestingly enough, I still sometimes slip and call myself by my old name. After all, I had years and years of experience thinking of myself as my old name.
I am so, so glad I changed my name.
It has made so much more possible for me, in my life.
It has made it possible for me to have a much bigger life, a more joyful life, a more exciting and meaningful and soul-thrilling life.
