The Egyptian Secrets in Your Name

12.00

by Professor Oddfellow

The quest to decode the individual letters in a name goes way, way back. To give one historical example, the Kabalistic philosophers sought the one true name underlying the fabric of reality, tirelessly studying the four letters of the Tetragrammaton (“The Name of Four Letters”). Those four letters (spelling an unpronounceable name) were considered a powerful means of widening consciousness. Exactly why the letters of a name might widen consciousness happens to correlate to quantum physics: the ancient Kabalists and modern-day scientists both note how the smallest particle is analogous to the whole, the speck of dust corresponding to the universe. Hence, the building blocks of communication—the letters of the alphabet—are considered microcosms and therefore vital windows into the grand instruction manual that dictates the cosmos. Lest we find the Kabalists’ sacred four letters quaint by today’s standards, let’s not forget the A, C, G and T at the heart of the genetic instruction manual.

The approach to name reading presented here finds it roots, to a certain extent, in the historical reality of Ancient Egypt, but it is more accurate to say that this system is rootless—a blending of philosophies, modalities, and new intuitions that constitute a wholly fresh, poetic technique. The springboard was an enthusiasm over the celebrated mentalist Kenton Knepper’s Mystic Name Reading technique (and note that the Greek root of enthusiasm is enthousiasmos—literally “possessed by a god, inspired”). The goal of this wholly different system is to offer a simple, pictoriallyinformed set of prompts for giving not only instant but also elegantly beautiful readings, under the presumption that artistically figurative information triggers deeper and more memorable meanings in the mind and psyche.

Our Promise to You

The original publication of our approach was released exclusively for professional magicians and mentalists, under the title Egyptian Name Reading, and was hailed as one of the top mentalism products of 2012 by Marketplace of the Mind. But with this revised and expanded edition containing twice the number of example readings, anyone can perform the technique for friends. No memory or guesswork is required. You’ll understand the hidden Egyptian meaning of your name instantly, and you’ll be able to dramatically interpret friends’ names. You don’t have to be a poet or expert on symbolism to shine with our technique. You’ll simply say aloud what you secretly know the letters to mean.

Published by Professor Oddfellow (2015). A new copy in perfect condition.

32-page paperback book with black-and-white illustrations and diagrams throughout.
