I realized the name has been with me for a long time.
The day I met my soulmate, June 6, 2010, I told him I was changing my name to Ayla. Alya from the Earth’s Children series has been one of the best if not the best fictional character and role model heroine to show me the allegories (deeper spiritual meanings) of my own life. I read the first four books in the series when I was around 11 or 12. (The 5th and 6th weren’t yet written, in the phi-cycle.) Rae may have come to me before, and I seem to recall that it did… but not with such clarity as this time…
“Ayla Rae, Ayla Rae, that’s your name. Yes you!”, the voice in my h-EAR-t kept repeating.
I asked for confirmation, if I was understanding correctly.
Then I checked the numbers on the name:
The Heart’s Desire # is 15/6, (magic #15/6, service to others)
The Personality # is 12/3 (creativity)
The Expression # is 27/9 (same as my Life Path #, Oct. 2, 1986)
The day this came to me was September 3, 2013
9th month + 3rd day + (2+0+1+3=6)
When I checked the time it was precisely 1:36am.
3 and 6 equals 9.
Plus earlier that day I remember very clearly seeing the number 99 which reduces to another 9. More nines.
Then just for fun I counted the number of nines on the page.
Of course there were 9 of them.
I looked at the page it was mostly 3’s, 6’s and especially 9’s.
Nine, the number of creation and cycles finishing and my LP#.
I am in the 9th year of my nine year cycle right now.
I have also been seeing the number 27 everywhere the past few days.
I am turning 27 this year in… go figure – 27 days. Wow. You can’t make this stuff up! Beautiful.
As if that wasn’t confirmation enough, I was reading up (again) on the meanings for the name Ayla. One of the first ones that generally comes up is that it means “Oak Tree” in Hebrew. Around that same time a previously unknown friend, Peter, “liked” one of my comments about the heart on FB and friend requested me to recommend his page on FB which goes into my questions on Heart Math in greater depth. We had a brief exchange about synchronicity and he wrote:
“There is NOTHING that happens, that is’nt MEANT to happen.
Although, those pesky ‘elites’ (ha!) have been trying to ‘Prevent the Acorn, from becoming an Oak tree’.
This was RIGHT after I had just read about the name Ayla meaning “Oak Tree” in Hebrew. Hebrew “Elah” also means “pistachio tree” or “terebinth tree” One recoded Hebrew meaning is “goddess”.
And another meaning for Ayla in Hebrew is “dear” or “gazelle”.
In Turkish, “Ay” means “moon” and Ayla means the “halo of light around the moon”
or also “moonlight” or “halo” in general.
Also in Turkish it can mean “with the moon” where “la” is used for “lie” which means “with”.
The feminine Arabic meaning of Alya is “sublime” or “large”.
And of course in English literature Ayla is my beloved Cro-Magnon heroine of Jean M Auel’s Clan of the Cave Bear who’s archetypes are healer, shaman, divine feminine, hunter, mother and earth goddess. She was also the one who was regarded by others as strange and different. Another black swan as it were.
Rae is a diminutive of Rachel: Ewe. Rachel was the second and favoured wife of Jacob in the Old Testament.
(I’m not too familiar with their story but I’ll be looking into it.)
Rae in Chinese means “lovely, graceful, little protector”
Then was have a “Rae” of Light.
As for my last name “Mulligan”, combined with Ayla Rae the Expression number is a 62/8. However, if I add an “a” onto the end of Mulligan it becomes “Mulligana” and the
Expression # changes to 63/9 where the
Heart’s Desire # is 29/11/2 and the
Personality # is 34/7
Also, Mulligana reminds me of the name “Morgana”, another powerful heroine in my life.
When I rearranged the letters in “Mulligana”, I got
I AM AUL GNL
which made me think “I am all GN-all-edge.”
Gnostic, Knowledge, Knowing…
I’ve always loved the name “Ana” too.
The sign-chron-i-cities abound. Be-you-ti-ful.
This was the name that was shown to me and shall not be given away.
Feeling so much gratitude. Love you all.
