What is your name?
If your name is Michael, do you tell people... Hey I'm Mike! Yes it is casual, but names hold a certain vibration. Michael Jordan doesn't hold the same energy as Mike Jordan.
Archangel Michael, He who is like God! Very powerful name. Here is a great friend, Physical embodiment of Archangel Michael energy. Oh yes, the Archangels get together to create awesomeness with teamwork in the physical as well!
Archangel Michael or Archangel Mike? hmm lol.. Archangel Jophiel? or.. Joe.. Archangel Chamuel? or... Cham
The name chosen for me is Chamuel Bachiller. Named as one of a few living embodiments of Archangel Chamuel. When my brothers, Zadkiel, Jophiel, and I were born. our mother had visions of each of us before being born.
Zadkiel was brought down with a disc like shape of light. When he was physically born, he was slightly violet in color, tuned to the archangel that bears the name. He looked mestizo. As long as I can remember, he likes eating mexican and latino food. Archangel Zadkiel's etheric retreat is over cuba.
The vision of Jophiel was that he emerged out of an egg looking shape in the vision. When he was born he was more yellow and chinese looking. Archangel Jophiel's etheric retreat is in China.
The vision of me before being born was that I was brought down with a host of swirling angels. When I was born, I was more pink, tuned to the pink ray of Archangel Chamuel.
When I was being baptized, the lady that baptized me laughed and said to the congregation, "he has the same look of the actual Archangel Chamuel."
I did not always tell people that my name was Chamuel. At school, teachers could not pronounce my first or last name. "is Cha-MoOoL BacheLor present in the room?"
Seriously... People appeared to have a hard time pronouncing my name. Other kids called my Chamu, like Shamu. I started to tell people, "just call me Cham"
What did I just do? I removed one of the most powerful aspects of the name out. EL (meaning God). It became an interesting experience. Yes, I was able to relate more to those around me, but it felt like a part of me was missing. Perhaps this was part of the experience I needed to become more immersed to better understand the people around me. Accepting something a little less than we are capable of, just to relate better with others.
It was not until high school, where I had an awesome teacher whom was also the basketball coach ask me, how do I correctly pronounce your name. I said "just call me cham". His response was "DAMMIT if your name is CHAMUEL, I am going to call you by your name! Not butcher it and half ass it!" That was a nice little wake up call and perspective. I don't have to be something less than I am, just to be accepted by others. I needed to accept me for being me.
Well, in college, I repeated the same thing.. Call me Cham.. and that is how people knew me as. "That is Cham, he is a chill quiet guy." It was not until my father passed away from this realm, that I had another wake up call. People were coming to me for guidance, and I needed to step into who I really am; The Divinity expressing through this vehicle. No longer just a Cham to relate with the masses, but also Chamuel, One who accepts the responsibility of an Archangel incarnate.
I have had some people call me a fallen angel working with satan and lucifer. By all means, if that is what they would like to believe, power to them to believe that story. But, is it possible there are Angelic streams of energy that willingly embodied here to assist others? Is it possible that Lucifer, the lightbringer morning star, also did the same, but with a different mission? A mission to appear of darkness, as a wake up call to those to balance the energy within themselves. God is like, I give a lesson to this person, but they are not listening to their intuition or guardians.. Hmm, Lucifer, I have a special mission for you, they aren't listening to our wake up call, can you go get their attention? hahah. Perhaps he is the unconventional angel to appear as the darkness that is truly balance with the light? Who can really know for sure. Like I said before, everything is just a nice story we can choose to believe or not. In the accepting of the Belief System, it can either limit us, if fear based BS. Or it can empower us with Joy and Love, yet peace.
Hmmm.. What about Bachiller? What is up with that? I did a little research on my ancestors. Supposedly originates from France, with a group of ministers and paladins. Not just meaning a bachelor in a certain subject or a single man. What was this group protecting? A few of them eventually traveled to Spain and England. So I'm feeling part of my ancestors went from France, to Spain, to Philippines, to the United States of America. There is a group of them that also went to New England in the 1600's. A group of philosophers that were interested in a Free people that were Free thinkers. Rev. Stephen Bachiler founded Hampton in New Hampshire. It was said in records he was a fighter for freedom and zealous for human rights. This was drawing some connections to questions I asked before. I asked for a sign if I am somehow related to some specific lineage. Lo and behold, I found information regarding a Magdalene College, Oxford and a Mary Magdalene in the picture. hahah. The story goes deeper, but that is enough information to get one reflecting. Here is a picture regarding this supposed ancestor.
What is your name? What are your reasons for choosing certain nicknames? How do the different names make you feel? Really tune in and feel the awareness of sensations when you say each name out loud several times. All it takes is One degree to make a difference from 32f frozen water to 33f liquid water. The same concept with names, all it takes is one letter in a name to make a difference. Numerology and all those can be saved for a different post.
Is it ok to choose to be called Cham? Of course it is, there are lessons I learned from it. How about being called Chamuel? Yes to that too. That is why I use both tactically. Hence, Life in a Cham.
I hope you are able to tune into the subtle vibrations of The Wisdom of a Name. Leave a comment and tell us about your name! =)
