Q: My entire first, middle, and last name has been changed to something different from my name on my birth certificate. Actually, the name on my original birth certificate is “Baby Girl Hawkins” because I was adopted. I was then named by my adoptive parents, and I then changed my name completely at the age of 23. I do feel that my life is different now after the name change, so I am wondering if I shouldn’t use my current name for a numerology reading, and if not, which do I consider my birth certificate name? I would like to find this out before I order a synergy report.
A: As outrageous as it might sound, your ‘Birth Certificate’ name is “Baby Girl Hawkins”. This is the official name that you arrived on this planet to.. So you would read that description to find out about the original ‘you’ – which plays on, however silently, under the currents of your outer life. Your Birth Name will always have it’s effect on you no matter how many times you change your name. In the case of someone adopted very near to birth, I would weigh the adopted name as next in importance. Adopted names, nick names, married names and intentionally changed names all have a powerful effect on ‘how your life plays out’ and how you grow and develop through life. Your adopted name would show you what talents and traits were being called out of you and developed in order to get you through that portion of life. When you changed your name at 23 (a powerful number of ‘change’ in itself) you were actually giving birth to a ‘new you’ – a totally new set of traits that would in turn, attract the experiences of your life from then forward. Interestingly, any time a name is ‘legally’ changed, as in: adoption, marriage or legally changing your name yourself, it holds a more powerful energy than if you just begin to use a different name. I’m not sure why that is, except for maybe it’s deemed to be ‘recognized’ by a “Higher Power” (at least in society – recognized by the Governing power) if it’s a ‘legal’ act. As below, so above? So I believe that all names are important to look at and understand, but the actual ‘Birth Certificate Name’ is the only name that will give you your ‘Core’ essence numbers and it’s the name I use initially for my Soul Mate Synergy reports. I compare the deepest selves of each to find the deeper connections drawing them together. Many people also get a report using their current names too and that tells them a lot more about their ‘day-to-day’ compatibility. If you have more number-synergy with a person using your current names, for example, than your Birth Names, that is telling you that you have a relationship that is based more upon the outer expression of your developed social personalities that you have developed throughout life and this type of connection is obviously not as ‘soul-stirring’ as if you shared synergy between your Birth Names. “Nurture vs Nature” so to speak. Both are important and play a key role in all relationships.
