What’s In A Name?

The Owl

deception, wisdom

The Owl lends you eyes that you need in order to see in the dark around you. The Owl can cut through the shadows to illuminate the real truth. Someone may be trying to camouflage his or her real intentions. Deceit, lies, and unclear intentions are exposed with Owl energy. The Owl also reminds you to be honest with yourself and snap out of any lies or denial inside you. Lying to yourself is the way that you’ll remain lost in a prison of your own making. The Owl appears to ask you to seek the truth in the darkest places within yourself. This will set you free and restore you to wholeness. All is well with the Owl to guide you. Deep wisdom into human nature is gained through the ability to recognize untruths. This is an important marker on your path.

Throughout most of  my life, I have been uncomfortable with my name.  I like writing it, I like reading it, I think it flows and and it’s pretty to look at.  And I have a strong affinity for The Wizard of Oz and the message of the story.  However, I’ve always felt it was an old lady name (guess what, I’m there now lol).  And when I hear it, it doesn’t feel like me.  So, recently I thought, this seems like a good time to make a change.  New life, new geography, new people, new purpose, new name. Thing is, I’ve not yet found one that suits me or feel right.  

Last night before I gave up to slumber, I asked for help in what to do about my name.  Should I change it, keep it, please show me a sign, an obvious sign of what is best for me.  And then forgot that I asked.

Today someone posted a video and I wasn’t going to listen to it, it’s long and I wasn’t really in the mood.  Finally I came back to it as it was recommended by two of my Eloheim tribe members.  I loved the message, by the way, and got a lot out it. Near the end, as I was beginning to be done with sitting and wanted to get up, these words hit me like a brick, “Keep your name.”  Wait, what did he just say!?  I relaxed back in my chair and pondered the message he was giving about names. Holy shit.  I then remembered my request for a sign.  This message is for me.

I am going to re-listen again just so I can hear what I missed or forgot, but basically, rejecting my name is a rejection of myself and my past.  It is nonacceptance of a part of me.   It’s pushing part of me away because I don’t like it and no longer want it associated with me.  As Eloheim would say, it’s not being kind to myself.

This is major.  I could feel the truth of those words in my gut.

Later, I went to Colette Baron Reid’s site to draw a card and asked, what message do I need to hear about changing my name?  I got Owl.

Time to dig deep and shed light on this dislike of my name.  Where did it start? How did it begin?  How can I learn to love that part of me and form a new relationship with my given name?

Fascinating.  Look what happens when you ask.  Everything begins inside.  It’s all about your relationship with yourself.  Perhaps I can incorporate my new life with my old name just by adding something to it instead of completely deleting it.  After I do some excavation of old thoughts and beliefs, that is.

  1. Isn’t that interesting Sue! Someone else last year said something similar, can’t remember who it was, but they saw me with a backpack….. Some days it’s such a challenge to move in any direction at all, wrapping my head around the world needing me is another one. But a good feeling at that.


  2. Hi Dorothy from another Sue! I went through something similar but felt I didn’t want to change Susan as it felt I would not be being true to myself. So I changed my middle name to Charlotte as it was my choice and I can feel the change in energy signature it brings.

    It’s heartening to read you made it to a Panama. It feels to me that apart from your own personal growth you are there to be light workers. the country needs you to transmute and raise it’s vibration.

    Love to you, Sue


      • All of that feels true to me, Another Sue. 🙂
        When I got married, I dropped my given middle name and kept my adoptive last name as a middle name, which I never ever liked or felt comfortable in. I thought that’s what I was supposed to do. I have tried that on for size, too, taking back my true middle name. At least for my own day to day life, if not legally.
        You must have been reading my energy as I said something similar to Debbie the other day, maybe we are here to help this country transmute, as well as it helping us. There’s a reason beyond ourselves that we are here.
        Thanks for chiming in. This subject seems to strike a chord in lots of people!


        • It’s a really strong read to me that this is why you are there. As light workers. I have a picture of you both with higher selves who are doing specialist work there at the moment. Something to do with light codes I think.


            • I’m being prompted to say something else, Dorothy. Because you are Lightworkers, don’t be surprised if you feel yourself being prompted to go elsewhere and continue this work. The world needs you!


  3. Oh my gosh Dorothy. How funny is that??!! When there was all the talk about changing your name on the Facebook page I was going to tell you what Matt had to say about that. But then I decided for some reason it was really best to keep my opinion to myself. How funny that you would get to hear him say it yourself. I have to say that part of the reason I didn’t say anything was probably because I met someone in the past who had changed her name to Allura. When I asked what her name had been she said it was Sue. Ha! I felt somewhat offended at the time that Sue wasn’t good enough for her. Clearly, because I keep thinking of this incident, I must still have some work to do on “not good enough”. Personally, I think you’re on the right path with this post. Keep up the good and difficult work. xxxooo


    • Your opinion is just as valid, my dear, and I am always open to hearing it!! Don’t ever hesitate to offer your input to me, here or elsewhere. I find it very valuable. Don’t ever swallow your words….not good for you either!
      I’ve never listened to this guy before, never even heard of him but I like how he teaches. I was guided to listen this message from him.
      In digging deeper into my past yesterday, I did find out that it comes from my childhood self. My foster mother used to put derogatory words in front of our names. No wonder I didn’t want to hear it spoken!
      Thanks for chiming in. SUE. Lovely name, btw. My birth grandpa used to call me Suzy Q. I named my daughter Erin Suzann ‘cuz Erin Sue didn’t sound right together. Though she did get called that lol. 🙂


      • Thanks Dorothy for the feedback. I found Matt about 6 months ago and have gobbled up as much as I could about him. His message is so simple and yet so profound. It’s hitting me right where I need to be massaged. You might want to check out The Love Revolution and Love Revolution #2. I have a feeling it will touch a spot in you that really needs to be held and loved and supported. And by the way, even some of my close friends still call me Suzy Q. 🙂


        • Will do, Suzy Q. When I met my birth mother after 40 years, to confirm it was me, she asked me what my grandfather (her father) had called me. I never forgot that nickname, it was so full of love in those words. Apparently I was a favorite of his. She said there was a song out at the time called Suzy Q and for some reason, that is what he called me.
          I will go check out your suggestions about Matt (my son’s name, how appropriate). Thank you.

          I glanced at my earlier response, lol, typo city! Where’s that editor of mine?!


I'd love to hear from you!
