So some say our name gives us power, I did research on mine and realized that this holds me back in many aspects. I’ve been dealing with my birth chart weaknesses via subliminals (yeah it’s legit). Now I realized my name while it gives me some dope qualities, holds me back in terms of what I need to thrive. I don’t wanna change my name as it’s a part of me but could I petition a deity to help me transmute the energy my name gives me into something more beneficial? Sekhmet seems like a top choice for this
I honestly wouldnt put too much thought on it, doubt that a name can hold you back that much, unless you give it power
but contact Sekhmet if you need to, by the way , how close are you to Sekhmet?
We have a relationship but I haven’t interacted with the Egyptian Pantheon for a while…
I see, well, see if she can help you with this, but honestly to me its not that big a deal, its just a name
I will. Yeah maybe you’re right, I mean I’ve been working on my birth chart so maybe that will help any other weaknesses I have.
Names do hold power.
But since you already accept it as a part of you, why not see it as a reminder of what you have to overcome? It does not need to hold you back, it can also show you where you don’t want to end.
You can always meet New people and present yourself with your new alias, Nickname. That is very powerful transmutation of energy
Out of curiosity, do you know the intentions behind why your parents selected the name they did for you?
I ask because my own comes from two individuals from my dad’s side who were highly respected. My father’s thoughts were that I would become like those I was named after. In a way, that would be an example of a binding through naming, although very loosely.
This sounds like a good idea especially since every name has its own strengths and weaknesses. I’m a bit worried as mine carries the risk of nerve problems.
Not really. My uncle gave it to me randomly when they where naming me and that’s it. I mean it beats the name everyone else wanted to give me XD
This is very interesting. How did it work out for you??
Beelzebub sounds good for this situation.
I was uncomfortable with it initially, but as I learned more about those men both through their journals and through setting up ancestral altars, it is not something i would change at all. And I have been told I have traits of both in my behavior, as well as more than a little of me in the mix. That is one binding I do not plan on breaking
I personally choose to have many names. No single one of them points to the entirety of me. I wonder if having another name would help you.
The thing is I broke ties with the infernals two years ago. I appreciate the thought though.
I like this I don’t plan on changing mine either. I scanned mine and I keep seeing light based entities like Apollo, Lucifer, Michael, Horus, etc. So yeah it’s not an energy I wanna break from.
Spoken like a true deity
Then Affirmation magick and the use of your own power is enough to do anything that you want.
i would channel anger and rage for the things that try to bind me, not bind me but try because on the moment of ritual everything changes. behind the adversarial energy there’s a power of self-transformation a face of freedom to do anything that i want. So get angry or better yet intent to be free. anger and rage would be then the weapon that you will fight and cut the ties.
Get in front of a mirror,i did a ritual like in in my own bathroom and it was powerful as hell. now get in front of a mirror and say “I am not my Name” or simply say something that connects you and your ties and put the big No in it. Like No,I am not a lie. I am not who they tell me or expect me to be. it is a lie and i burn it. The Lord of darkness told me “Detach from the lie and connect with the truth of who you are becoming” this is from my book of Satan, be sure to check it out when i will release it lol.
Say that affirmation 13 times and let that go, now replace that shadow with your strength replace that emptiness with abundance, you get the idea. Envision yourself without these limitations and be compelled to become it.
Dude I’m gonna try this for sure. It seems powerful so I’m gonna try it for the rest of my weaknesses
I wouldnt put much thought into it, there’s websites that try and make you pay for a better life because they believe your name affects your life and the luck you have in it.
Personally I’m not the type to let astrology and name choices I didn’t choose dictate the flow of my life, but I assume it’s a belief affects life concept. My name is very rarely used and the spelling is uncommon.
It becomes an issue because life is fluid and ever changing. Change is inevitable. Names don’t change apparently for humans.
I suggest once you accomplish things spiritual or mundane. You try and low-key change youur name with major achievements.
My name was a major issue for me especially after doing lots of shadow work and conquering some personal obstacles then out of nowhere someone calls me by the name. It sort of acts like a trigger that brings up weird emotions in me.
Idk if this applies to anyone else. But those who have faces deeply traumatic events and overcome them I suggest you change your names if you can.
