day 23. reverb 10
Let’s meet again, for the first time. If you could introduce yourself to strangers by another name for just one day, what would it be and why? (Author: Becca Wilcott)
Original answer Dec 2010: “I simply have no idea.!”
Modified answer March 17 2011: Soraya
I came about this name during a visualization exercise in Tara Sophia Mohr’s Women’s circle. After a lovely journey out of the galaxy, we returned to earth and visited with our future self. My future self told me her name was Soraya.
Honestly, the name frightens me. The reason being perhaps-like you-the only only association I have with the name Soraya is the tragic movie ‘The Stoning of Soraya M.’ After I was told the name my brain jumped in and tried to change it to “something nicer” like Sarah but something deeper would not be persuaded otherwise. I do think the name is exotic and beautiful, and have since learned it is a Persian name meaning “rich” or “princess” so maybe I shouldn’t be so scared. If I were to change my name for a day I would try Soraya on for size.
