The Journey to find your name

Hello, my friends.


Welcome to my world of personal discovery and self-exploration!


I'm on a mission to help others uncover the secrets of their true selves, and I'm thrilled to have you along for the ride as we delve into one of the most transformative aspects of self-discovery: the journey to find your name.


Have you ever felt like you're going through life on autopilot, just going through the motions and not really knowing who you are or what your purpose is?


Well, you're not alone. Many of us struggle with a sense of disconnection from our true selves, and it can be a difficult and confusing journey to find your way back.


But I'm here to tell you that it's possible, and that the journey to find your name is the first step towards a life filled with purpose and meaning.


Get ready to embark on a journey of self-discovery and explore the mysteries of your true name and the power that lies within.



I come before you today to share with you the stories of the ancients, tales of great heroes and powerful deities. These stories have been passed down through the ages, told by the shamans and wise ones who have come before us. They are stories of magic and mystery, of bravery and honor, and they speak to the very heart of what it means to be human.


As I tell these stories, I invite you to close your eyes and let your imagination take flight. Imagine yourself standing on the windswept plains, surrounded by the rolling hills and towering mountains of the ancient world. Feel the sun on your face and the wind in your hair as you embark on a journey through time and space, to a place where anything is possible.


So come with me now, my friends, and let us journey together through the mists of time, to a world where the gods walk among us and the spirits of the natural world speak to us in whispers and dreams. Let us explore the mysteries of the past and discover the secrets of the present, as we embark on an epic journey through the stories of the ancients.


I am here to tell you a tale of great importance.


In this vast and wondrous universe, everything is connected by the magic of vibration. Every particle, every atom, every molecule, every being is alive with energy, each one vibrating at its own unique frequency. And as we journey through life, we encounter countless things - animals, plants, minerals, elements - all with their own distinct frequencies and names.


Names are more than just labels that we give to things. They are powerful spells that contain the meaning and essence of those things. They hold within them the secrets of the universe, the hidden knowledge that has been passed down through the ages. And as we journey through life, we are given the opportunity to uncover these secrets, to learn and grow, to understand the true nature of all that surrounds us.


So come, let me share with you the stories of the spirits and the magic of names. For within these stories lies the key to unlocking the mysteries of the universe and our place within it.


Are you ready?


Then let us begin...



"The Great Spirit's Council and The Mole Who Named the World"


In the beginning, all was formless and unnamed.

The Great Spirit, who saw all things, said "Let the things of the earth be named, so that they may know themselves and each other".

And so it was that the Great Spirit called forth. A council of all the animals, birds, and insects. Even the plants and rocks were there.


"Who will name the things of the earth?" asked the Great Spirit.

The animals and birds looked at each other. None of them knew how to do this. The insects buzzed and chirped, but they had no answer. The plants and rocks were silent.


Then, from the back of the council

a small voice spoke up It was the mole, who lived beneath the earth.

"I will name the things of the earth," said the mole.

The Great Spirit smiled and said "Very well, mole. You shall be the one to name the things of the earth"

And so the mole set about his task

He named the trees and the flowers

The mountains and the rivers

He named the sun and the moon

The stars and the sky

He named the animals and birds

The insects and the fish

As he named each thing, it came into being, taking on form and substance

And when he had finished, the earth was filled with a multitude of living things, each with its own unique name


And so it has been ever since that names give shape and meaning to the things of the earth helping them to know themselves and each other.

"The Council of Shamans"


Once upon a time, in a land far beyond the reaches of mortal men, there lived a tribe of wise and powerful shamans.



These shamans possessed the ability to commune with the spirits of the natural world, and they spent their days seeking wisdom and guidance from the animals, plants, and elements.


One day, a young spider named Arachne approached the shamans with a question.

"How do names come to be?" she asked.


"Why do some creatures have such beautiful and meaningful names, while others are given mundane and insignificant ones?"


The shamans smiled at Arachne, for they knew the answer to her question.


"Names are given by the spirits of the natural world," they said.

"They are not chosen by mortals, but rather bestowed upon us as a gift from the gods."


"But how does a name come to be?" Arachne asked.


"It is said that when a creature is born, the spirits of the natural world gather around it, watching and observing its every move.


They watch as it grows and develops, learning and exploring the world around it. And as they watch, they begin to see the unique traits and characteristics that make this creature special. They see its strength and courage, its kindness and wisdom, and they begin to whisper its name to one another."


"And what happens if a creature does not have a name?" Arachne asked.


"If a creature does not have a name, it means that the spirits have not yet seen its true nature. It may take many years for a name to come, or it may never come at all. But it is said that if a creature is patient and waits for its name, it will come in due time, for the spirits are always watching and waiting to bestow their gifts upon those who are worthy."


Arachne thought about this for a moment, and then nodded. "I understand," she said. "Thank you for your wisdom."


And so, Arachne returned to her web, filled with a new understanding of the power and importance of names. She knew that her name, Arachne, had been given to her by the spirits as a symbol of her strength and skill as a hunter and protector. And she knew that, no matter what challenges she faced, her name would always guide her and remind her of the sacred bond she shared with the natural world.


Names are sound and sound is vibration.


Everything in this universe is vibration, everything has a frequency and everything that we get to know has a name.


Name’s are very powerful spells that contain the meaning of things.



"The Meaning of Names"


In the beginning, humans did not have names as we know them today.

They were simply known as "son of" or "daughter of" their fathers. But as the human population grew, it became difficult to distinguish one person from another using only these titles.


One day, a great council of shamans was called to discuss this problem. The shamans, who were wise and had the ability to communicate with the spirits, were asked to find a solution.


After much contemplation and discussion, the shamans decided that each person should be given a unique name. This name would be given to them by the spirits, and would reflect the person's character, their purpose in life, or some other aspect of their being.


And so it was that the first human names were given. Some were short and simple, like "Sun" or "Moon." Others were longer and more complex, like "He Who Walks with Eagles" or "She Who Brings the Rain."


As the humans received their names, they felt a sense of pride and purpose. They knew that their names were a special gift from the spirits, and that they had been chosen for a special purpose in life.


From that day on, human names have been a way for us to distinguish one person from another, and to connect with the spirits and the forces of nature that guide and protect us.


Human names also come from the Great Spirit, who bestows them upon each person at the moment of their birth. It is said that the Great Spirit knows the true nature of every being, and gives each person a name that reflects their unique spirit and purpose in the world.


In some cultures, the naming of a child is a sacred ceremony, in which the parents and spiritual leaders pray for guidance and ask the Great Spirit to bless the child with a special name.


In other cultures, receiving a new name at maturity is seen as a rite of passage.


This typically occurs when a person reaches a certain age or stage in their life, and is seen as a marker of their transition from childhood to adulthood.


Receiving a new name at this time is often accompanied by ceremony and ritual, and may involve the guidance of elders, shamans, or other spiritual leaders. The new name is seen as a symbol of the person's growth and development, and may reflect their character, their role within the community, or their spiritual path. In receiving a new name, the person is also often given new responsibilities and expectations, and is expected to live up to the meaning and significance of their name.


Regardless of how they are chosen, names are important to human beings, as they serve as a symbol of our individuality and a way for us to be known and remembered. They are a link to our past and a representation of our future, and they shape the way that we are seen and perceived by others.


For these reasons, it is said that a person's name is a sacred and powerful thing, and should be treated with respect and care.


Names are a powerful and enduring part of human culture. They give shape and meaning to the things of the earth, and help us to know ourselves and each other. They are also a connection to the spirits and the forces of nature that guide and protect us.


If you haven't already, I invite you to take a moment to reflect on the meaning of your own name.


Is there a story or significance behind it?

How does it reflect your character, your purpose in life, or some other aspect of your being?


You may be surprised by what you discover.


In conclusion, finding your true name is not just about discovering a label to call yourself by, but it's a journey of self-discovery, self-expression and becoming the person you are meant to be.


It is an ongoing process, but with patience, self-reflection and courage, you too can find your own unique name that represents the essence of who you truly are.


Embrace this journey and let it be a source of inspiration and empowerment for you.


Remember, you are worthy and deserving of the love and joy that comes from living your true purpose.


So, embrace your journey, embrace your name and embrace the person you are meant to be!
