Your Birth Name vs Your Current Name

I am often asked about the strength of one’s name. Is the birth name more important or does the name you currently go by, or prefer over your birth name, have more weight? Here’s my answer:

Your Birth Name

Your Destiny number (aka your Expression Number) can be characterized as your Reason in Life. It provides a road map from the beginning of your life to the end. When you understand what it is you were born to do with your life, it becomes so much easier to navigate through the journey and how to respond appropriately. Your birth name, which is your Destiny number,  reveals what you must become or live up to in your life in order to be fulfilled. While your Life Path (from your date of birth) is the actual stock you have on hand to run your life, your Destiny number represents the business to be established. It is considered:

  • Your life’s purpose.
  • What must be lived up to in this lifetime.
  • Your field of opportunity.
  • What you must give of yourself, to others and to life.
  • The kind of people to meet and work with.
  • The environment you are comfortable with.
  • The spiritual mission you have been appointed.

Your Current Name

The current name that you go by represents the strength of your name as you see yourself and who you think you are. It really represents your essence and is a source of power. Your current  name can simply be a shorted version of your birth name, or it can be a name you have chosen for personal or professional reasons. Whatever the case may be, whatever name you introduce yourself as is considered a layer underneath the birth name – your Destiny –  which is the most important thing to consider when I read your numbers. All other names, nicknames, changes of names, signature names or married names are channels through which the Destiny is worked out and expressed. Your current name supports or detracts from the fulfillment of your Destiny number:

  • Does your current name add sensitivity to your birth strength?
  • Are you a born leader with a layer of charm and charisma?
  • Do you have a public Destiny, but are reserved and prefer to be alone?

Wednesday Wisdom – Patience is a Virtue

Patience is a virtue and is a passive qualitiy of power. When you pull back the bow, preparing to set the arrow and define your target, you use the strength, the will, and the focus that you have collected within that part of yourself called virtue. Virtue is where you find inner truth. It is a place of illumination, and as that radiance grows within you, it becomes integrity. Without virtue, there is no inner balance. Virtue comes from the unknown, quiet things that you do for the world and other people. 

Virtue marks your path on the other side. Like the one who walks last, the virtuous person is in a position of power. Power often comes quietly. Walk in the virtue of patience today and know that the hardships suffered from lack of patience will continue unless you become strong with each act of patience. 

It is not just a person’s physical constitution, their intelligence, their education, or even their social conditioning that enables them to withstand hardship. Much more significant is their inner development. And while some may be able to survive through sheer willpower, the ones who suffer the least are those who have a high degree of patience and courage in the face of adversity. – The Dalai Lama
