Make Your Name Your Mantra
Notice the effect of these words - You are beautiful! Or you are powerful! Or Oh My what a handsome young man you are! Also notice what happens when you hear calming music or mantras!
There must be something more to the words beautiful, powerful, handsome...deeper than the meaning itself. And that is just why it touches the right place within.
Now notice how many times your own name is called out in a day. What if you felt as good each time as you would upon hearing anyone of the sounds or words mentioned above?
So what is in a name? A lot, I would say. In fact it's the syllabic identity given to an individual. It is almost like a short mantra that will be spoken hundreds and thousands of times in the individuals life time - by the individual (Hi, I am Aby!) and by others naturally. A name is your identity, something that defines you. And would you not like to define yourself in the most feel-good way, giving it that magnetic edge that it draws the best out of you and the best from the universe towards you.
Just like a mantra is chanted over and over, till a critical threshold is reached and it starts to manifest great results, let your name become your personal mantra which effortlessly brings you in sync with the universal energy for your greatest good. A mantra is a combination of powerful syllables, sounds and vibrations that have been woven together.
Vedic astrology and numerology are two great tools when used in tandem can help give the right and balanced names that resonate with the individuals energy. While Vedic astrology helps casting a birth chart and determining what syllable should the name start with. It indicates the birth of the individual within a certain lunar mansion or nakshatra, which in turn has certain syllables ascribed to it. Naming the individual with this alphabet or syllable brings about fortunate results.
Numerology helps by indicating the birth number and destiny numbers which are the key forces that will be active in the individual’s life. Knowing this, one can balance the name into a numerical and syllabic harmony. The meaning of the name is equally important as it imparts it essence or gunas to the individual’s life too.
For instance, an individual born under the Moon sign of Aquarius (known as Kumbha in Vedic astrology) in the nakshatra (lunar mansion) of Dhanishtha should ideally have a name beginning with the following letters / sounds - Ga/ Ge/Gi/Gu. A name like Gaia, Grace, Gavin, Gordon etc. would work well.
Like wise if numerological harmony is required, if the same individual is born on 5.6.2013, the birth number is 5 and destiny number is 8. Balancing the full name to a number 5 ( which is a better number out of 5 and 8) would be beneficial. A girl child with a numerologically balanced name of Gaia Mae Thompson ( adding upto 59= 5+9=14=5 , just an example) would prove to be fortunate.
Individuals have for long, understood the power of planets, stars and numbers and have benefitted from harmonising their energies with them. A name is just the beginning of a great life!
