Nickname Problems. Why can a nickname limit your fulfillment in life?
Discover one of life’s ironies, revealed by energetic literacy. And learn what you can do to name yourself right.
Why Choose a Nickname?
So many reasons can nudge you towards going by a nickname. Including these:
- First of all, you just don’t like your name. So you decide to disguise it. Like changing Logan to Loggie.
- Second, you aim to cute-it-up. Helping you to stand out. Like transforming up boring Bob to exciting, cool Bobcat.
- Third possibility: What if you want to grab attention? Accordingly you choose a tongue-in-cheek nickname. Like going from silly Stephanie to wink-wink Queenie.
- Fourth possibility: In business there’s some tradition to nicknaming yourself by initials. Supposedly adding clout. Why go by Harrison Robert Smith when you could dub yourself H.R. Smith?
- Final possibility in this list. (Although surely there are many other possibilities.) You choose to go by your middle name, hiding your first name from everyone else. Except when writing your official signature. Like going from — what were my parents thinking? — Millennia Jane to simply Jane.
Why Do I Help People Solve Nickname Problems?
Indeed, I don’t just spot nickname problems. I care passionately about helping people to solve them.
All sorts of naming problems.
Because I’ve done extensive research about the impact of names. Gaining insights through detailed aura readings. Accordingly I’ve discovered plenty of…
Hidden Nickname Problems #1. Unintended Associations
Unfortunately, the energetic problems and social problems with a nickname aren’t necessarily obvious. For instance:
Calling himself “Loggie,” oops! Did it ever occur to this sweet guy that there’s also a word “Logy”? Sadly, this means feeling groggy or sluggish. Somehow I doubt he’d purposely call himself “Groggy.”
And I’m quite sure that if I were to do a session of Name Alignment with Loggie, the aura-level consequences would be dreadful too.
Hidden Nickname Problems #2. Ambivalent about Your Humanity?
Sure, it can seem liberating to go from boring old Bob to calling yourself Bobcat. Or go from Katherine to Cat.
Maybe you know that:
- Academy Award winner Gwyneth Paltrow named her daughter Apple.
- Avatar star Sam Worthington names his son Rocket Zot.
- Hunger Games star Jena Malone named her son Ode Mountain
What do names and nicknames like these have in common? They’re not human!
Seems to me, your spiritual growth depends upon accepting your humanity. Not to mention when you ask other people to call you by a name that is an animal, fruit, thing, or fantasy place!
Hidden Nickname Problems #3. Just Kidding
Please don’t inflict comical nicknames on yourself. The joke might appeal to someone (over the age of nine) for three minutes. Then what?
Hidden Nickname Problems #4. Business Clout at a Price
Obviously I’m not going to complain that J.K Rowling couldn’t succeed as an author because of nicknaming herself with initials. But who knows what personal price she has paid?
Maybe you know that one of my favorite RES specialties is Name Alignment® Aura Research.
Turns out, every time you tweak your name, it impacts all of your chakra databanks. Including your:
- Belly Chakra Databank for Sexual Self-Esteem
- Root Chakra Databank for Making Money
- Solar Plexus Chakra Databank for Sharing Power
- Throat Chakra Databank for Communication to Gain Respect
- And your Throat Chakra Databank for Communication in Close Relationships
What you think that the cool, business-ey clout of nicknaming yourself with initials can only help you? Might I suggest? Do a session of Name Alignment Aura Research. So you’re not driving blind. Instead you could get yourself a real name of power!
Nothing like precise, accurate info about this kind of nicknaming to give you a true, new view.
Hidden Nickname Problems #5. Hiding While in Public
Ouchers, does one really solve the problem of an embarrassing name by not mentioning it?
Millennia Jane won’t stop being Millennia Jane simply because she doesn’t tell anybody. And most folks won’t have occasion to see her legal signature.
Fact is, your legal name counts. And not just legally. Your aura — and karma — and integrity can all get dinged big-time.
How to Solve Nickname Problems
What if you haven’t had Name Alignment? If you give yourself a nickname, google it. Google what it sounds like. (Such as “Logy.”)
But what if you’ve ever had Name Alignment? Please, please avoid nicknaming yourself. Because we didn’t research that nickname, did we? Probably it’s not as good for you as you think. To find out for sure, ask me to research that variation during your session.
What if you’ve been hiding parts of your name? Might I suggest? Either go back to your legal name. Or else legally change your name.
Preferably doing this in an intelligent manner, based on more than “Does it sound nice?” Most of my clients for Name Alignment start off by proposing nice-sounding names that turn out, with aura research, to be really awful energetically. Whereas the name finally chosen is great, sound-wise and association-wise and energetically, too.
How Hard Is It to Change Your Name Legally?
Unless you’re a convicted felon, or trying to avoid paying your debts, guess what? Legally changing your name is inexpensive. And quite easy.
Actually, one gal who did Name Alignment with me… did have a bit of a history with the law. But that was years ago. So she had no prob at all with changing her name to a much, much better one.
Give the name change thoughtful consideration. Because hopefully you won’t change that new name any time soon.
In conclusion, dress cute. Talk cute, if you like. Just don’t name yourself cute.
