Neimology Science expert

Sharón created Neimology® Science, the study of the placement of the letters in a name, after 15 years of research followed by 3 years of testing her theories in over 70 countries, including Russia, India and China. She then continued to develop how to interpret names over the next seventeen years, which is why Neimology® Science is so accurate today. She wanted to see if her methodology held true in different languages, and indeed it does. The greatest gift that came from developing Neimology® Science was being able to see all people as One, as our basic desires remain the same regardless of where we live or what culture we are experiencing. Over the years, she has been able to support thousands of people around the world in understanding themselves and others better.

Guest Occupation: 
Author/Speaker-Reveals the neimoogy® science meaning in your name
Guest Biography: 

Sharón graduated from the University of Redlands with a Bachelor of Science degree in mathematics at the age of twenty. She began teaching that same year in a public Junior High School in California. During her three years there, she obtained her Master of Arts degree from Azusa-Pacific University in education administration with an emphasis in math.

Sharón initially taught in California before moving to Germany where she taught for the Department of Defense Schools. She continued to move around as she married an Air Force soldier. She was fortunate to always find a teaching job in each location. After Germany came Texas, and then Japan. Eventually she would also teach in New Mexico, Nebraska, Washington state and China, besides being a high school administrator in both Texas and Oregon. She retired as a high school principal in 2002, only to come out of retirement in January 2008 to become involved in schools for an additional two and a half years.

It was during her time in the schools that she linked the patterns in names to a person’s mindset or personality. She worked on figuring out the patterns of the different letters for fifteen years before she fully comprehended all of the nuances. Sharón took the opportunity to travel a large part of the world testing her theories for the first three years after leaving the education field. Many people requested that she write a book so that they could learn what she had realized about names.

It was during this time that she wrote "Know the Name; Know the Person", with the first edition being published in December 2006. The second edition, published in May 2010, added chapters on mnemonic devices to help people remember the patterns explained in the book and also how to compare two names. She is currently working on the third edition. She is also is working on her second book which combines story telling with logic to challenge people to think again about some commonly accepted beliefs that may no longer be serving us. Since the publication of her book, she focuses her time writing, traveling and sharing Neimology with others, and researching her theories.

BOOK REVIEW:

Profoundly valuable and highly recommended.

This book posits the science of "Neimology, the study of names" and is ground-breaking, of potentially historic importance, and it affords broad-spectrum practical application. The empirical research and experience behind it has substantial credibility.

The notion behind the research and this book is that a person's oft-repeated name is initially inspired, releasing a resonance and predictable potential within the person's life expression. The author systematizes how people with names bearing the same initial vowel, initial letter, last letter and middle letters show consistent tendencies. Hence, the resonance of the name demonstrates correlated patterns of conduct due to the structure of the name. This observation is consistent with the ancient knowledge of most cultures' approach to naming children, where the given name "says it all." Offering this as a framework for decoding, she does not, for example, clam that every "John" will be the same, but that every "John" will share certain traits. Her system explains how and why these traits will be distinct from those shared by persons named Jemal, or James, or Jim. The resulting correlations are nuanced and valuable. Socially, this book can help make interaction with friends and strangers alike far more effortless and productive.

Unlike common "cookbook" approaches that merely share the meanings of names, the Wyeth system explores the personality traits associated to vowels and consonants, with interpretive weight given to their placement in the name. She enriches the reader with a systematic exploration and many illustrations. The reader is thus equipped with an interpretive framework applicable to any name. She tested the work in many countries who use the English Alphabet and found consistent results with only minor adaptations. This is significant. In addition she addresses nicknames, changed names, and other permutations involved in naming. In sum, rather than providing a fish to the hungry, she has provided a hook and bait so the hungry can catch fish and eat for a lifetime.

Cymatics, the study of the physical impacts of sound, demonstrates that sounds create visible geometries. Medical research has proven that cell structures, neurological systems, and the body generally does respond directly to sound. It shows that repetition of sounds can create or ameliorate disease. Making a connection between behavior associated to the oft-heard name and cellular responses proven in hard science is not an untenable leap.

Neimology offers a wealth of very useful applications for anyone who seeks to gain a sense of what lies beneath the surface in other people. The range of applications is broad-spectrum. Among readers who could benefit from Neimology are people in business, sales, counseling, politics, ministry, education, military leadership, and anyone seeking to refine simple interaction among other people in any capacity.

Lawyer/Activist
Guest Biography: 

Daniel Sheehan, Esq.

In 2004, a group of grandmothers in Lakota country—an area comprised of nine Indian reservations in North and South Dakota—asked us to investigate and help them prevent South Dakota's Department of Social Services from removing their grandchildren from their families. The investigation uncovered that drugging and routine patterns of physical and mental abuse of Native children in foster care were leading to high levels of youth suicide. These atrocities are in direct violation of the Indian Child Welfare Act (ICWA), a federal law put into place in 1978. In response, we formed The Lakota People’s Law Project (LPLP) to help put a stop to the cycles of injustice leading to the slow genocide of the Lakota.

Our first program, the ongoing Lakota Child Rescue Project, launched in 2005 to address the actions we discovered, and to assist in the return of Lakota children to their families, tribes, and communities. This mission has expanded to include the creation of a tribal foster care program funded with direct Title IV-E funds from the federal government, bypassing the state of South Dakota. 

It was natural for us to expand our mission when the Dakota Access pipeline (DAPL) threatened the Lakota’s sacred lands and water. The injustices perpetrated against the Lakota during the peaceful and prayerful resistance to DAPL further demonstrate the government’s blatant pattern of contempt and disregard for the Lakota and their sovereignty.

LPLP engages in ongoing efforts to reclaim ancestral lands, and to stop all threats to Lakota land and resources. We believe that Native peoples possess inherent sovereignty and the right to autonomous rule and self-determination. The Lakota flourished for centuries before Europeans arrived on these lands, and their tradition of living in relation to all things is more important today than ever before. We are committed to working with the Lakota toward the revitalization of their people and culture. Learn more about our campaigns and discover how you can get involved!

Guest, Brian Ellis

Guest Name: 
Brian Ellis
Guest Occupation: 
Army veteran and Certified Peer Specialist
Guest Biography: 

My name is Brian Ellis.  Much like many other veterans, I was compelled to join the military after the September 11th attacks on New York and the Pentagon. On December 20th, 2001, I proudly raised my right hand and enlisted in the Florida Army National Guard as an 11 bravo Infantryman. I attended The Army’s Infantry School at Fort Benning, GA, from March 11th to June 14th of 2002. After completing infantry school, I proudly became part of the 53rd Infantry Brigade and assigned to C Company, 2-124 Infantry, out of Orlando Florida. However, my return to civilian life was short-lived because on December 24, 2002, I was activated by the Florida Army National Guard and ordered to report to the armory on December 26th for my first deployment. By January first, the unit was sent to Fort Stewart, GA for pre-mobilization training.

By the end of February 2003, the unit was sent to the country of Jordan for the Invasion of Iraq. During my deployment, C Company, 2-124 Infantry was attached to 5th Group Special Forces ODA 571 as quick reaction force, pilot recovery, POW processing, security and general support for our first mission. When our mission in the Iraqi desert and Jordan was over, we were all sent to Baghdad and attached to many other units. Our missions included, force protection, patrolling the streets of Baghdad and the Tigris River. On September 8, 2003, I was injured and medevacked out of Baghdad; I was sent to Landstuhl Medical Facility in Germany. From there I reported to Fort Stewart’s Medical hold battalion until I was rehabilitated and released from active duty.

After release, my injury forced me to re-class, so I left the infantry in 2006 and moved from unit to unit until December 2007 until my contract was up. Instead of reenlisting I took a short break from the military and went into the Individual Ready Reserve (IRR). However, by April of 2008, I found myself talking to a recruiter and decided to join an Army Reserves aviation unit as a Blackhawk mechanic. Shortly after my MOS training at Fort Eustis, VA, I began my flight training as a UH-60 Black Hawk crew chief in a newly formed Medevac unit. On Oct 20th 2011, my unit mobilized to Fort Hood, TX then to western Afghanistan where we were attached to the First Cavalry Division and the 12th Combat Action brigade for Medevac support. My platoon ended up in northwestern part of Afghanistan called Bala Murghab on Forward operating base (FOB) BMG. For the next nine months, I flew over 50 Medevac missions.

Although I finished my deployment in Afghanistan, I returned home somewhat lost and physically broken. I suffered from extreme chronic pain and loneliness that caused bouts of alcoholism, isolation, and self-destruction. Thanks to the hard work of the men and woman of the Tampa VA hospital’s Center for Post Deployment and Education (CPHE), I am in recovery from alcoholism, and the effects of PTSD are manageable. However, I am still working on my progress to better my  quality of life.

During my time at the VA, I was asked by a member of the CPHE  to develop a program that would help other veterans’ transition and recover from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) from a veteran’s point of view. I began my program in April of 2015, at the time, the CPHE had between 20 to 30 patients enrolled; the program I put together lasted 22 weeks and included groups and one on one mentoring sessions under the supervision of licensed mental health practitioners. The program was a success, both veterans and VA Peer Specialists utilized the program to help veterans.

In all, I spent over 700 hours volunteering as a Recovery coach at the Tampa VA.  After obtaining my State of Florida Peer Specialist certification in October of 2016, I begin working for the Society of St Vincent de Paul. As a veteran Peer Mentor and homeless outreach specialist. 90 percent of my time was spent calling shelters, walking in the woods and combing streets to locate homeless veterans. During this time, I learned more about people in a raw environment and why they end up homeless and walk away from society. It is my goal to become a Licensed Mental Health Counselor (LMHC) and a military culture awareness trainer in the near future. My drive is from my own experiences, I truly believe that properly trained and educated veterans are the most qualified to help the veteran population and their family ease the pain of transition and recovery.
