Know Yourself through your Name

The following is an extract from the "Life Positive" Magazine

"Sigmund Freud, often began his sessions by asking about a person's name. You can know more about yourself through your names by these queries:-

  • Imagine your parents discussing what name to give you a week before you were born. Did they want a boy or a girl?

  • Some babies are named after other people-either relatives or friends or famous personalities. Were you named after anybody? If so, who and why? Has it had any effect on your personality.

  • Many children are named after legendary heroes. Later in childhood their stories are retold to them. Can you remember any such stories you have heard as a child.

  • Nearly all names have meanings. Were your parents aware of the meaning of your name ? Who chose your name ? Was it chosen for its meaning ?

  • Do you have a nickname ? Do you remember when and why you started using it?

  • How and by whom were your parents named. Have you noticed any relation between their names and personalities.

  • Do people make jokes about your name ? Do You like it

There is definate Karmic reason behind your name. You are what you are called. So you are what you are called.
