Blog-Buddies, that SOPHIE just made my day. Right before stopping work tonight, I went over to the blog to check if there were new comments to allow. Guess what?
Here comes this sweet one, quite probably SOPHIE’s first one ever at this blog.
Of course I have elevated this comment into a guest post. You know, Blog-Buddies, Thrill Your Soul guidance, Aura Reading Research — this seems to me like such a useful kind of session. But it really challenges my communication ability, conveying to people what it is like. Or why it’s different from other forms of guidance, like muscle testing or having a psychic reading or doing numerology.
That applies particularly to a specialty within Thrill Your Soul Aura Research that I now call “Name Alignment Research.”
Well, without further ado, and with just headings added, some links in the article, and maybe minor edits, here comes a cherished voice at this blog… SOPHIE.
My version of empowerment (when I adopted a name that thrills my soul)
Kylie, I love your top 10 list of power changes after changing your name.
Rose facilitated a session of Name Alignment Research for me too this year. (It had been a while brewing for me.)
And I did have a good number of sessions with Rose in other areas of Rosetree Energy Spirituality beforehand which, for me, were necessary in helping setting up a new foundation for the new me.
If I would have had to continue with my old name, well, it would have been like putting a brand new fresh delicious baby in some dirty old dusty dank threadbare duds.
My old name was weighing me down, keeping me hidden to others and myself, and tying me to a past that had no reflection on the me of now.
The anxiety drop-off
One big thing I noticed for the first few days after my session with Rose? When we had found a name I loved and thrilled my soul to bits, and I had inwardly accepted it as my new name, something surprising happened.
An underlying state of anxiety, that went with me almost everywhere, just dropped by about 50%. With no effort on my part.
And it has continued to drop.
People are responding to me differently, and that feedback is also reducing a sense of powerlessness and social anxiety I had for a long time.
It has been so much easier to drop a whole lot of perceptions about myself that sat with my old name, also tying in to family of origin.
I would recommend Name Alignment Research for anyone who had a difficult childhood, and/or has ongoing issues with powerlessness.
Because it might be your name sending out that frequency, a kind of horrible invitation to people and situations that keeps you stuck in the cycle.
I wore my new name privately for months before my session with Rose.
This was a kind of experiment to see, okay:
- How would Sophie respond to this situation?
- What would Sophie think about such-and-such?
Doing this gave me an idea of where I wanted to be headed, and meant it wasnt such a big change for the formal change and telling others.
Because I was already used to it. As Paige has been doing, with informal interactions here and there.
Finding the trickier parts of my name
My middle and last name I couldnt have gotten without Rose and the research session.
And I am so thankful for Roses experience and guidance (and her perky little ears that open to the Universe, like Krishnas mouth).
I really didnt have had a clue about the middle and last names, and I so didn’t want my sparkling fresh new first name to be let down by possibly even bigger trouble-makers than my original ones.
It was an amazing process.
In my Name Alignment Research, Rose advised me how to look for appropriate names, and it was fascinating.
I am so happy with my new name, and I love not having the feeling of cringe when my name is said or being introduced to new people.
