Heart Reading … Day 108

108 Names of God

So this is my last heart reading that I am going to post — at least until the spirit moves me again. As I mentioned on Day 1, I was woken up and “told” to start listening to my heart and write what emerges. It was open ended and I figured I’d keep going for a whole year — it seemed to be helping me feel better about life and I didn’t want that to end.

Well a week ago or so I “heard” to stop at Day 108. This is significant to me as I learned years ago about God having 108 names. I researched and read a bit about these Hindu Gods back then but didn’t give it much pause (because it is very complex), even though the notion of God having so many names felt expansive with great potential for many faiths coexisting in harmony. The Hindu names below are a bit of a mashup of each of the eight Lords (#34–41 below) — each of whom have 108 devotional names — and some wives, goddesses, and gods (through #75) depending on how the spirit moved me as I was reading the names translated into English.

My intention in presenting these curated names of God for you here is not to be comprehensive but to be representative. Maybe names from Norse mythology or the energies of the Kabbalah will captivate you!

Names for God revered by different faiths including Hinduism, Judaism, Vodou, Wiccan, and more

These names are very powerful for some people and meaningless to others. Isn’t that fascinating? Perhaps they will evoke curiosity and open heartedness to others’ way of connecting to the mysteries of life and the beyond.

A hearty Thank You to all of these Gods that this message didn’t come through early on with these Heart Readings. It has been a bit challenging to be spirit-led each day since knowing this timeline “set” for me!

Yes, I am a bit verklempt and unsure about what I will do to harness my easily scattered energies. But I do trust that I will continue listening to my heart, singing and sharing offerings with the trees and water, and learning new ways to say “hi” (please see Day 91) and receive spirit each day.

Many blessings and peace to all our relations.
