Can your Chakras tell you something about your name?
I've been thinking about my name Delcia. You know I've never felt comfortable with it. Maybe it's because it unusual and so often people ask me where it comes from or how did I come to get it. Invariably I have felt some kind of obligation to tell the story. Then again in my not very generous moments I would think I got my name because my mother was disappointed that I wasn't a Richard John and so compensated by giving me a fancy Christian name. (Sorry mum!)
But what has all this got to do with Chakras? Well whilst letting myself experience where in my body I felt this discomfort with my name, I realised it was right in the centre of my chest, in my heart chakra... click on read more to continue ... The vibration of energy there felt sort of jagged, unsettled, somehow just not right and certainly not at ease. When I kept my focus here I remembered a 'soul name' I was give about twenty years ago by a wonderful psychic in London called Betty Balcombe. I won't share it here because its important to keep it secret (so as not to lose its energy). Anyway I decided to focus on the vibration of my soul name in my heart chakra and then merge it with the name Delcia. Gradually I felt an easing in my heart chakra when I internally said Delcia.
The message in all this I want to share is use your heart chakra to develop a loving relationship with yourself and start with loving your name. You may already feel happy with your name, but, if not, consider taking some chakra action. I know you are free to actually change your name if you really don't like it, but how about asking your heart chakra to give you a different name or sound, and gently allow this other vibration to merge with your actual name? You can have a sense of your soul and heart chakra as one and then they give you this name or sound.
Names are so important and are a real bridge from our inside to outside worlds. Our Christian names particularly hold a great deal of our self esteem energy. If you come from the heart chakra I believe you will be strengthening the solar plexus below and the throat chakra above. Try it and if you want to let me know how you get on.
(In case you are curious my name came fromAustralia. It's unlikely it originated there and seems to have a South American connection. It may be a hibrid mix of Delia and Dulcie. My mother had a niece who had a pen friend in South Wales,Australia called Delcia and my mum took a fancy to that name. I contacted that Delcia many years ago and she grew tomatoes in the outback. I adore tomatoes! )
Wishing you a heart-felt weekend – whatever your name is!
