TAROT BLOG HOP: What's In A Name? Some Tips and Tricks Using Names With the Tarot
|Happy Lammas / Lughnassad!|
What is the very first thing we ask our clients? "What's your name?" And if we are really good at what we do we don't forget their name and during the consultation we will use their name by addressing them or asking them questions a few times. This has a magickal affect on the person getting the reading. It makes them feel important, focused on, nurtured...and that is why they have come to see you for the reading to begin with.
When it comes to naming our business or project or finding a domain name for our website, there is much careful thought put into naming it. Just like with political memes, slogans and advertising campaigns--names and groupings of words have power and influence. One also wants to find out if the name selected or conceptualized is being used by anyone else in any form before naming a business or venture. And if the name truly expresses what one is doing with their project--action words make sense.
Practicing the craft is the same--putting together a magickal working is based on the words backing up one's INTENTION. Many times magickal workings or spells have groupings of words or a poem that helps to direct the energy and mentally solidify the intent of the working. Selecting the right words really counts or one's spell could backfire or have a different outcome than what was originally intended. It is so important to realize that once we put words out into the universe, we are "beckoning" that energy. Good to keep the words aligned with peace, love and positivity. Names are the same.
Playing around with some of the online resources to find out the meanings of names and where they come from, both given first names and surnames can take a lot of time and end up being very revealing about people and their families. And it has been proven many times, that the simpler, the most easy to pronounce and the least complicated name can help to make a person more successful with their career and/or in public life. Hence, stage names for those people that automatically make them cultural influencers for the rest of us--a perfect example.
