What is a spiritual name?
If your search for spiritual name on the internet, you will find quite a few pages with information on spiritual names.
For me, a spiritual name is just a name that you get, either given by a guru or yogi or chosen yourself, when you come to the realization of who you truly are.
Why I chose to get a spiritual name?
During my spiritual journey since 2005, after I realized who I truly am, I had to learn to let go of certain beliefs and/or thought processes. Some were easy to let go, while there are those that are so hard, that you feel you will not be able to go on living without it. I am still busy letting go of some of the attachments, till this day.
But I thought to myself if I can let go of the one thing that I thought I was my whole life, my name, then I should be able to let go of anything else in my experience of this reality. So I decided to get a spiritual name.
At this point, I decided to do a little reading on the subject. I had a lot of questions and uncertainties about changing my name and now living by my spiritual name.
Some said that you had to receive your spiritual name from a guru or yogi. I thought to myself – Great! Now I have to find a guru that can bestow a spiritual name on me…..
Luckily, I also found people that chose their own spiritual names because they did not have access to a guru or yogi. This was exactly the situation I was in as well while I also realized that only someone that truly knows me and my journey as well as I did, would be able to give me a name that described my life path.
So I decided I would choose my own spiritual name for myself.
