What’s in a Name
It may seem like a lot of work, but at some time I'll bet you have chosen your words carefully. Perhaps it was a conversation with your spouse, where you were looking to come to an agreement. It could have been a ‘talk' with your child, when you were trying to get them to see things a different way.
The act of naming itself is a declaration. Whether it's your given name, or the myriad labels that given to everything, think of how many years it took you learn to name things ‘just like everybody else.' Of course, these are collective agreements in consensus reality. You call this place you sit, a ‘chair', and a being that comes from your body, ‘your child.' Naming is a declaration, it is a containment of an energy.
Consider that you can do the same thing with any word. You don't have to tap into the collective agreement of ALL words. If this were true, what words would you choose to change the energy of?
Let's start with your name, notice the energy of it, notice the stories, the collective agreements about you. Are there any agreements that are ready to be released? Notice what occurs.
How does it feel to have a new energy associated with your name, with you? Explore and engage what's possible for you, now that the energy of your name, of you, has been freed. Notice. No right or wrong. Just notice what arises within you. Allow the surface to slough off and see what is beneath. Just be with it, allow it to move through you.
Notice and muse . . . What's new? What's you?
