What Your Name Says About You: Decoding the Hidden Meaning Behind Your Name

HJ: In this life, nothing is random. There is meaning imbued in every circumstance and occurrence. Your name is no exception.

Dating back to ancient times, the study of the meaning of names can be likened to astrology and is a way of understanding the deeper personality traits that are energetically imprinted in a name.  After all, words contain energy and specific energy at that.  The ancient languages of Sanskrit and Hebrew are based on these ‘energetic codes’, if you will.  Speaking the letters in these languages is designed to activate specific accupressure/meridian points on the roof of the mouth and thereby alter consciousness and energy flows in the body.

Although english may not have been designed to such an extent, the fact is that various accupressure/meridian points are still activated by saying a name (or any word for that matter).  As our name is something we often speak, these patterns get imprinted in our mind and can create very specific energy flows in the body.

While this is not the only mechanism operating behind the meaning and power of names, it is interesting nonetheless.

The article below is based on ancient interpretations of the letters in our names and is definitely a thought provoking foray into who we truly are…
