Winter in the Garden, I received my Spiritual Name

I seem to be weeding the garden that is my life these wintery days. Time is so precious and energy so sparse. I continually feel the need to narrow down my focus, burrowing deeply into what means the most to me, my love of and devotion to God and creative expression. I feel the ever increasing need to  disregard the rest. I want to die whispering God's Holy name; "Ram, Ram, Ram...." and, if possible, with a paintbrush in my hands, (or at least paint under my finger nails). I know I don't want to die typing a post on Facebook about some meaningless something or other ;-)

The night before last I had a powerful mystical experience where I very much felt the presence of God draw close to me and I was truly aware that it was God. My heart was overflowing, I felt in awe of this presence that surrounded me, there are no words for the experience. The next day, (yesterday), I received my spiritual name from Niirinjan Kaur who is trained in the tradition of Yogi Bhajan's teachings in determining a persons unique spiritual name. The name I was blessed with is, Ram Krishan Kaur. This was an incredibly powerful experience for me. I cried when I read it's meaning, releasing deep rivers of emotion from a well stored somewhere deep within me.  This name is such a powerful confirmation of my deep love of God and my faith that I am always surrounded by God's light despite the darkness of this illness. Don cried with me when he got home he was so happy for me. I feel very blessed to have received this name.

 Below is the interpretation I was given with the meaning my spiritual name: 
"You have been blessed to live as Ram Krishan Kaur, the Princess/Lioness whose universal essence goes beyond time and space and transcends any darkness to God’s Light.
Ram is a Name of God in His universal consciousness. Krishan denotes the conjunction of Krishna and Shiva in the soul, where the Universe stops and the Light emerges from the darkness. Kaur is a name that all women receive - the Princess/Lioness of God who walks with grace and strength throughout her life. Yogi Bhajan taught that every woman has the potential to attain this divine state and encouraged all to manifest it.

The name Ram Krishan Kaur is a constant reminder that your soul is universal and infinite and goes beyond any darkness to a place where time doesn’t exist. It is God’s Light. You have the power to penetrate and eliminate fears and negativity and manifest comfort, hope and light. Use these beautiful universal qualities to inspire and uplift yourself and others. Let the powerful sound of your name help you reach towards your highest destiny.
The power of your spiritual name is that the more you speak and hear it, the more it permeates your being, opening you to experience its nadh (universal inner sound current). Consciously merge with the vibration of the nadh to come into harmony with your highest destiny.

May God's guidance bless you with everything you need to reach your highest destiny.
May God bless you and guide you, now and forever. In the Name of the Cosmos which prevails through everyBODY, and the Holy Nam which holds the world. 

Many blessings,
Nirinjan Kaur"
