And Who is Gizelle Luccio?
It would be easy to say: “Oh, I changed my name!” But there is so much more to the journey. Simply put my birth name served me well for most of my life, yet I felt there was something missing – some bell or tone unrung. I felt constricted and weighed down without knowing why. About 10 years ago I began to explore Numerology and the Kabalerians, knowing that ‘names’ have power — yet despite my hours of searching, nothing felt ‘right’ or rang true. …. What was wanting to be born, I wondered?
Lately, in the midst of our planetary change, I felt myself expanding energetically …. once more I sensed shifting within as though I didn’t fit in my own skin. Fortunately (and serendipitously), I crossed paths with someone who had studied Vedic Astrology and Numerology. I discovered how one’s name can indeed energetically constrict or be at odds with what our Soul is here to experience. Unsurprisingly, my name and my true resonance were out of sync!
The idea of naming my Self felt strange; who was I to want to ‘name’ myself, was I being disloyal to my family, did I not ‘like’ being “Woman of God” (the meaning of my birth name)? What was offered to me struck a deep chord: “Naming yourself is a gift you can give yourself, therefore proclaiming your sovereignty. … Your old name is like a basket you were given at birth, collecting all of your experiences and perceptions that others hold about you.” So for me setting aside that basket, honoring all of what came to shape me, but choosing to “Let Go” of those identities that no longer serve me was liberating and empowering. After reviewing hundreds of names – and becoming overwhelmed – I went to cook dinner. A voice whispered: “Gizelle isn’t such a leap!” Going back to my list I discovered that it was there! Thus Gizelle Luccio – “to be pledged” or” a pledge for” and “Light”– was born.
Honoring my inner knowing, trusting the voice within, has expanded my awareness and integration of ‘gifts and talents’ – thus everyone benefits! But some things don’t change: As always I remain “A Pledge for and to the Light”.
