This is an interesting article based on the teachings of Alejandro Jodorowsky, writer, magician and psychotherapist, about the burdens of the names we carry. It is an interesting topic that encompasses family constellations and metagenealogy.
The name as identity
According to Alejandro Jodorowsky, our name or the way they call us has a very powerful impact on the mind. It is a strong symbolic identifier of personality, a talisman or a prison that prevents us from being and growing. They repeat it to us throughout the day, of our life, as a mantra that we end up believing.
The names we receive are like unconscious contracts that limit our freedom and condition our lives. A repeated name in the family is like a contract to which we make a photocopy, when in the family tree there are many photocopies the name loses strength and is devalued.
When we baptize a son we must know that along with the name we pass an identity. So let's avoid the names of ancestors, old boyfriends or girlfriends,
of historical characters or fictional.
In the narcissistic trees, each generation repeats the same names of their ancestors and with that they repeat the destinies. Is there a schedule registered in our first and last name? According to Alejandro Jodorowsky, both the name and surnames contain mental programs that are like seeds, they can emerge fruit trees or poisonous plants. In the family tree repeated names are drama vehicles.
Mentally observe your tree for a moment: Are there repeating names? What are these people repeating? Did any of you break the contract in any way? Did he stop repeating the same fate? And you? Have you inherited your name from someone before you? What was your destination? Is it affecting you in any way?
The inheritances of our name
It is dangerous to be born after a dead brother and to receive the name of the disappeared. That condemns us to be the other, never ourselves.
You can read my article about the symptoms of recumbent to expand this topic.
When a daughter bears the name of
An old girlfriend of her father, she is doomed to be "daddy's girlfriend" all her life. A man or an aunt who committed suicide turn his name, for several generations, into a vehicle of depressions. Sometimes it is necessary, to stop those repetitions that create adverse destinations, to change the name, as we will see later.
The new name can offer us a new life. Intuitively so they understood
Most Chilean poets, all of them come to fame with pseudonyms. Is there
Examples that allow us to understand the importance of the name? Our Name
He's trapped, there's our "individuality." For example:
-Barrick Gold (gold in English is gold) became the world's largest gold producer.
-Brontis "Voice of Thunder" is dedicated to the world of theater with a powerful voice…
-Mary, Immaculate, consolation are associated with purity, virginity, names that demand absolute perfection, which limit us
-Michelangelo, Raphael, Gabriel, the names of angels give problems with the Incarnation-Caesar, powerful and associated with ambition
How do I know if the name I received hurts me? Studying the names of the family tree is the same as accessing the unconscious of our Familiar soul.
The origin of our name
In the names we find secrets. It's important to see how the name they gave us works.
-The first thing is to know the person who appointed us. Dad, Mom, Grandpa, the sister, the Godfather?… He who names, takes power over the name and it is not the same to call me Micaela for my paternal grandmother, if it occurred to my father to repeat the knot incestuous, or my mother, to be accepted in the family of my father , giving her a daughter-clone of her mother-in-law.
-For what reason did they choose that name? What was your desire to do it?
-As a child I liked my name or would have liked to call me another way?
Children have a special intuition and a fresh disinhibition that allows them to reject what pollutes them fully.
Investigate where our name comes from
* If you are a family member, it is good to analyze your destination and the paths you have traveled in your life, because we probably come to repeat them. To be called Rene (which means reborn in French) after a dead brother, is to carry with him all his life.
* If it's from someone meaningful to who we named, we will drop the burden of giving this what
That the other did not give him.
* If it is of some historical personage, romantic, Ace of the football or Princess of Monaco,
We will live frustrated and unsuccessful if we don't follow the script.
* If it is for something material, we acquire the properties of that element. For example, "if
I am called by my sister's wrist, I will become her doll, she will play with me,
He'll dominate me. "
* If I am called by something immaterial, I will tend to abstract purposes devised by our fathers,
Neglecting the real and even, as opposed to them, I will come to materialize the contrary to
What I've written in the name. To be called freedom, peace, light, is not always synonymous with
To be free, to live in peace and to have things clear.
-diminutives: "My name is Manuel as my grandfather, but I say Manolito", have
Projected in you the figure of your grandfather, but you are forbidden to grow and overcome it.
-The compound names: "My name is José Luís, by my father and grandfather." Poor you if
The relationship between them was ragbag. "My name is María José," as Jodorowsky says, "Sexual catastrophe!"
-The names feminized or Masculinizados: Mario, Josefa, Carmelo, Paula, correspond
To frustrated desires that born of the opposite sex.
-What does our name mean? Look for it here for example or here and see how this sense in your life manifests.
Changing our name as a liberating therapy
Why not change our name when it is loaded by a ballast that immobilizes us?
It terrifies us to change our name because we fear to be rejected or excluded by our clan, as we deal deeply in the family constellations. We fear not to be recognized, nor identified, not to be loved is the greatest fear we have. We are gregarious beings and we think we can die if our "clan" abandons us, which is an inheritance of our archaic brain.
Metaphorically, the name given to us by the parents is like a GPS file that will indicate us digitized paths and stored in the family memory. At birth, we install the file and we wander around the world for more or less stony and abrupt routes, but we felt at home, because they were drawn by the operating system of the tree. To change our name is to throw the GPS through the window of the car and start to see and explore new roads, conquer territories that had not been archived by our tree. is to take care of our own destiny. Begin to be what you are.

Place names and destinations
Do certain places attract people whose emotional state corresponds to the hidden meaning of those names?
Alejandro Jodorowsky says that in Santiago de Chile lived in the Plaza Diego de Almagro, a place he felt as dark and sad. It is possible to think that this place was the reflection of its interior at that moment of its life.
Diego de Almagro was a frustrated conqueror. For misleading advice from his accomplice Pizarro, he departed from Cuzco to the unexplored lands of the South, believing that he could find temples with fabulous treasures. After many calamities he returned as a soul in sorrow to Cuzco, where his traitor partner, not wanting to share the riches stolen from the Incas, made him execute.
We could devote a few minutes to observing the place where we live: in the street of a poet, a patron saint, a discoverer or perhaps a general murderer. Nothing is
Casual, the world is like a mirror that reflects us, every time we make an inner mutation it also changes our exterior, they are signals from the universe sometimes.
Could we say that names have a kind of frequency that tunes to certain receptors? What kind of receptors? Unconsciously we are attracted to hundreds
Names that reflect what we are (sometimes they are exact and sometimes are hidden behind masks, there are only lexical or phonetic similarities): Our healthy and positive part is a
Receiver that tunes with certain names, because they make us enjoy and feel safe.
The names we attract to repair
Our sick and negative part is another receiver that tunes certain names, because there is a supraconscious intention to resolve the conflict. As well as our positive part, it attracts happy experiences.
Let's reflect again on the names of what we have attracted to our world, what are they saying to us?:
-The name of our company, work center, school…
-The name of our partner, friends, bosses, professors…
-People who cross our path by "accident" and are called exactly like our father (or mother, brother…)
Choosing a Name
How then do we call our children when they are born?
Alejandro Jodorowsky says that we each have a name (we can do a meditation or visualization exercise to connect with our inner guide and ask for our name or that of our baby) that comes with us even before being conceived.
It is possible that during the gestation, this name will arrive at the same time to both parents in a telepathic way, if they have enough capacity of perception. If not, it is the child who
It should be named later. In the case of having to decide how to call the baby, the name must not have existed in the known history of his family tree, or belonged to people or ideals of those who appoint it.
What are we going to do with our name? If we find that our name fits some points of what is described here, we can ask you to start calling us by the middle name, for example Dolores Carolina, if you call of Pila Dolores and already the pains brings a load, we can get them to start calling Art Carolina or the middle name, or for example Carlos Antonio where Carlos is repeated in generations with ancestors of tragic destiny, start calling us Antonio, is not easy but in a way we begin to abandon the tragedy to take our other destiny, if this It's not loaded with the memory of any other ancestor.
