Quantum Implications of Name Changes
What’s in a Name?
Each letter of the alphabet carries a vibration, and when these letters are strung together in a word, they create a specific vibrational frequency. Our parents name us when we are born, and those names carry meaning. Our names reveal personality traits, soul intentions, talents and life cycles. I have changed my name numerous times in my lifetime. With each change, new energy takes center stage.
In my new book, Mystical Empress Magical Relationships, I talk about shifting time lines and particle realities to manifest relationship dreams. With quantum physics, we have multiple time lines and versions of reality available to us. We can rewrite our past, align with new versions of self, and step into the dreams that are waiting for us! Creating a complete name change, that holds no history, can act as a rocket booster to begin anew! How many people would love a fresh start, unencumbered by the ghosts of the past?
Right after I finished my book, I started feeling that old familiar tug of needed change. I reviewed my lifetime with my birth name, my shortened name, my previous married name, and I thought, “I’ve had quite a rough go with this name! I’m ready to do some releasing of my past and shift to a better version of myself.” As a Scorpio, with butterfly totem, I am very comfortable with birth/death/rebirth cycles in my life. In addition, my astrology natal chart shows Uranus square Moon. So, it is a part of my internal fabric to release past identities. I don’t hang on to anything, really, which makes me very successful in manifesting my life as I desire it to be. Hanging on to the past clogs everything up!
My current, legal, shortened birth name Brenda Renee’, adds up to a 23/5 expression, and I chose this name when I was a single actress, student, and world traveler (2006-2013). It was a time of death-like experiences and change. I completely shed my personal and professional identity. I spent years as a nomad traveling the winding road of uncertainty. 5 indicates freedom, communications and acting! Additionally, during all these changes, Uranus was moving through my 1st house, Pisces Ascendant, Aries intercepted, which was a loooong bumpy ride. Uranus in the 1st house shatters your self- identity; he breaks binding chains in favor of freedom and authenticity. During those years, I found it very difficult to plan long-term goals. I remember walking in a rental store and saying, “I’m not looking for long-term, I just need one night.” Those words reverberated in my ears, and I thought, “Oh, WOW! That’s exactly how I’m living my life now. Whenever someone wants a formal lengthy commitment from me, I can’t give it to them!” (this coming from a girl whose middle name was commitment!) Uranus is a more in- the-moment kinda guy! Recently, Uranus went into Taurus and moved out of my 1st house and into my 2nd house of money, possessions and values. I’m finally through the demolition cycle! Whew! Also, I am now happily married and planning quantum shifts in my life—so the time feels ripe for an identity shift! Neptune will be coming up on my Ascendant in the next couple of years, and brings with it a more feminine, romantic, soft identity. Already, I’ve noticed my attraction to more feminine, floral, lacy clothes.
In considering a new name, I had some specific intentions in mind: I wanted to be a more refined, softer version of myself. Brenda means warrior and Renee’ means sword and rebirth. I was ready to withdraw from life’s battle and move into a life full of joyful experiences. As I’ve always been drawn to Greek names, perhaps from the lifetime in Atlantis, I picked a Greek name– Charites, shortened to Charis. It comes from the 3 Graces with Charis meaning grace, charm, beauty, creativity, fertility, and youth. I also knew I wanted mermaid or butterfly in my name. As a seastar, I looked for various forms of the word “mermaid”, but I didn’t like the way they sounded. Then I found the Italian version of butterfly, Farfalla, and I loved it!
Once I had a prospective name picked, I had some numerology calculations to do. I needed to see how it shifted my original life intentions. I needed to see if the vibration would be harmonious. Although life path and birthdate numbers never change, expressions and heart’s desire do change. Expression numbers are an additional layer to your personality and intentions, while heart’s desire numbers show a secret desire that you may or may not ever realize. Under the Chaldean numerology system (which I use mostly), the expression numbers for Charis Farfalla are 15/6. Compound number 15 is the Magician, the supreme manifestor, while 6 is relationship and art focused. Under the Pythagorean number system we get the spiritual based expression number of 7, where intuitive and spiritual growth are highlighted. The heart’s desire numbers under both systems are similar to my original birth numbers. 5 is the heart’s desire under the Chaldean system while 4 is the heart’s desire under Pythagorean. Both of which are in my birth name. Again, 5 offers the secret desire for freedom & travel. 4 offers stability, grounding, and work ethic.
Thus, with my new name already listed on the copyright of my book, I’m off to a fresh start! I may or may not take my name change to court for a legal change. I do not know yet. Also, I’m still uncertain if I will take my husband’s name. I made sure to include the number calculations for my married name too. My new name definitely aligns with my original birth intentions; however, as I shift realities, those intentions may no longer be valid.
Now that the numerology portion of this new identity is complete, I will start the quantum shifting process of altering time lines and shifting particle realities. With much spiritual growth already completed in the old version of myself, I will begin writing a new history, a new personality, and new manifestations for Charis Farfalla. People, places, and events will shift as the new reality comes into focus.
Numbers have always been a big part of my life decisions. By harnessing these energies, we can make: more informed decisions; completely shift the energy in our lives; add an extra boost to manifesting our dreams; change our selves; and attract more of the good things in life.
