On Changing Your Name

When someone asks you, “Who are you?”  You say,

Changing Your Name

“My name is _____.”  There is energy to your name, which deeply effects who you are.   If you don’t believe it, imagine how you would feel about yourself if your name was “Pickle”, “Beth”, or “Renaldo’?   Would Marilyn Monroe have been considered as sensuous and sexy with the name Norma Jeane Mortenson?  Indra Nooyi is CEO and Chairman of PepsiCo and is often identified as the most powerful woman of the world.  How could you not take someone seriously with a name like Indra, meaning “Lord of the Heaven”!

Here is a story of what happened when Resonance Repatterning® Practitioner and teacher Carin Block decided to change her name to Magui Block.

Sally:  How is it that you decided to change your name?

My mother gave me a birthday gift of a numerology session.  The numerologist stated that my name did not fit me.   But I could not figure out what to change my name to.  Shortly after that session, I went to a supermarket and my money was stolen.  I saw it happen and I could not do anything about it.

I clearly saw that the name “Carin Block” resonated with being a victim—that that name attracts bad things. I had worked those non-coherent patterns with Resonance Repatterning and constellations, and I saw by listening to my name many times every day that “Carin” was creating a negative impact.  I loved that name, I was used to that name, and everybody knew me as Carin Block. I had a career with that name. How could I change it?

It was a jump, an opportunity to leave behind old patterns, so I did it. I was afraid and at the same time my heart felt lighter.

I decided to use Magui, that is the nickname of Margarita, my second name.
“Magui” is like magic and I want to do magical tools that heal with grace. It is aligned with my vision.

Sally:  How has your life changed since your name has changed?

Magui:  Before I changed my name, I was stuck in my writing and after I changed my name, I wrote a new book and a new workshop.  After I changed my name, I found out about a government agency that supports small business, to help businesses grow.  I am now in training to create my business.  I am required to give a frank look at how to run a business.  For example, I am learning how to handle employees.  I have created a brand name—my name is my brand name.  I am creating a new logo. I got in contact with my vision as a business. I am learning how to teach and create in a different way.  I do not want to repeat the same mistakes. I want to make it better and I feel different, stronger.

Sally:  How did Resonance Repatterning help you in your process of changing your name?

Magui:  Resonance Repatterning has helped me all through the process of changing my name: making the “right” choices, managing the fear, leaving the old behind and all that triggers a big change like this. It is to leave an “old” way of being and welcoming a new one. Resonance Repatterning helps to do just that: quantum leaps.
