This is from a four year old:
'When someone loves you, the way they say your name is different.
You just know that your name is safe in their mouth.'
Billy - age 4
Ancient peoples knew names held power through their sacred and secret vibrations. The essence was and is held in the vowels. Many ancient civilizations did not write the vowels. They were too powerful. They held the secrets to a person's life directions and soul. They still do.
Not only the vowels, but the placement of all the other letters in your name reflects your innermost attributes. Letters are made up of sounds. These individual tones and combinations of letters form a vibration that is a soul picture of you. That's why the ancients had secret names and hid the vowels. They didn't want to give their power away by revealing their essence in saying their name.
In my book "If You Have a Name You Need This Book", some of the teaching is based on numerology, the hidden messages in number values of each letter. Most however is about letter placements and the sounds and vibrations each letter makes. I call this study Nameology. http://www.dollymae.com/Whatisnameology.html
We have heard spoken of the Celestial Choirs with their Angelic sounds. Angelic names are impossible for us to speak for they are of such a high vibration that we can only begin to experience their tones and quality, but are unable to reproduce it. Those tones and vibrations reveal the celestial qualities of each angelic energy. They are a higher overtone of our alphabet, using similar patterns of sound and vibration. Our sounds are watered down by comparison.
My book about Nameology is a sort of decoder so you can figure out what your name means, or anyone elses too.
I liked this little four year old's understanding of the power of names. It made me see yet again that children are brilliant and know much more than we credit them for.
