Introducing Lyon G. Zonamyari
Lyon G. Zonamyari is today’s guest joining us on the Steve Jobs Inspired Join Up Dots Podcast.
When I started Join Up Dots, it was important for me to bring to you different people, different conversations, and different varied skill sets.
And today’s guest is a man who firmly falls into the different skill set category.
He is a man who has built a career as a Professional Name Analyst, which if you are like me, until recently would have meant nothing to me.
As he says in his professional bio “There is nothing more important or fascinating to each individual than his or her own personal life.
There is not one human being who would not master his own individual life if he could.
Your documented names from birth shape and define your character, your personality, both your mental and physical health, for better or worse.
More amazing, the second part of this system reveals how letters from each of your names rotate at predetermined years, influencing events and the way you live your life.
Incredible, maybe, but true! Name Reality shows you how, why and what you can do. “
And I like that statement “Incredible but true”
And I am sure in this episode you will all start looking at your own names in a very different way.
So how did he discover this stuff, and did he embrace it straight off, or did it take awhile for him to realise that this was something that would change his life?
Well let’s find out as we bring onto the show, to start joining up dots with the one and only Lyon G. Payley Zonamyari
During the show we discussed such weighty subjects with Lyon Zonamyari such as:
How a very famous model literally changed her fortunes over night when she changed her name from Laura Hollands to Agnes Dean.
Why he lives his life by the wisdom given to him as a sixteen year old by a complete stranger in a pub.
We break down the names of Rhianna and Simon Cowell to see why their names have lead them to become so successful in their lives.
Why as a five year old he would spend so much time staring at the movements of ants and comparing their movements to that of humans.

David Ralph [1:38]
Yes, hello, everybody. Hello, weld. I’m feeling good today. I tell you what, I don’t like to tell everybody about this, but I bloody love doing this job and it’s getting more exciting every single day which hopefully comes across in the show. And hopefully it gives you guys out there. That kind of motivational birth. That inspiration to think, yeah, I want to feel like that as well because you can, you can really go for it. And it’s just, it’s a kind of story that you’re gonna hear today because today’s guest has got a roller coaster ride that he was telling me a little bit about before we started recording and I said, No, stop, stop. Don’t give us too much because this is gonna be the gold for the show. But it is true to say that when I started Join Up Dots, it was important for me to bring to you different people, different conversations, and as opposed different varied skill sets. And today’s guest is a man who firmly falls into the different skill set category. He’s a man who’s built a career as a professional name analyst, which, if you’re like me, until recently would have meant nothing to me. And as he says in his professional bio, there’s nothing more important or fascinating to each individual than his or her own personal life. There’s not one human being who would not master his own individual life if he could. Now your documented name some birth shape, and define your character. Your personal It both your mental and physical health, for better or for worse more amazing. The second part of the system reveals how letters from each of your names rotate at predetermined years influencing events and the way you live your life incredible may be true, and he puts an exclamation mark behind that name reality shows you how, why and what you can do. And I like that statement incredible but true. And I’m sure in this episode, you will all start looking at your own names in a very different way. So how did he discover this stuff? And did he embrace it straight off or did it take a while for him to realise that this was something that would quite simply change his life? Well, let’s find out as we bring onto the show to start Join Up Dots with the one and only Lyon G. Zonamyari How are you sir?
Lyon G. Zonamyari [3:46]
Well, hello, David, and thank you for pronouncing My name correctly. It is quite a mouthful.
David Ralph [3:52]
Was it good though, because I I wrote it phonetically. When anyone has these kind of flamboyant names. I always have to write it phonetically. And then As I’m reading the introduction, I get closer and closer and I’m trying to look down at the page and do things at the same time. So zona Miyagi, is that spot on? Correct?
Lyon G. Zonamyari [4:08]
Correct spot on spot on.
David Ralph [4:12]
course you’ve got a name that is, well, it’s not only brilliant for Scrabble, I would have thought you’ve got so many different letters in there. But it doesn’t scream out to me English, but your accent is screaming out English. So where does this name come from?
Lyon G. Zonamyari [4:27]
I actually made it up. I am the only person on this planet with the names on me Ari. As far as I’m aware, I have a first name that I created, which is Leon l YON, I have an initial G. And then I have a second middle name of site, which is Paley pa y l. y. And then my surname last name is Ana me, Ari. And when you look into this system that I discovered, the names they balance, they balanced very, very nicely. They also follow a similar pattern to my birth names. But I’ve taken away some of the negatives and I’ve introduced some more positives, and changing my name changed my life. And as you’ll discover, as we go on through the discussion, many other people have done the same thing. And it’s quite incredible. Your names do influence your life, for better
David Ralph [5:24]
or for worse, right or your professional. You’ve letters. Yeah, there’s there’s intrigue already on this. My first thing is so what was your birth name? Was it something like john smith or something less flamboyant?
Lyon G. Zonamyari [5:37]
No, actually, it was Paul pa ul. And it’s a great name, but the letter U is a letter that signifies loss and because this is a two part system, the first part talks about your personality, your character, your virtues or vices, both your mental and your physical health. The second part shows how letters from from your names, they rotate in a specific sequence. And you can create a chart that shows when these letters are going to fall into place. The whole thing is all about balance once again. So first of all with your names, the individual names you have need to balance. And then the letters, as they rotate through the years into this chart also need to balance otherwise, you’re going to have topsy turvy things happening. The best way I can really sum it up. If you picture in your mind a piano, look at the keys on a piano. Now you can take one finger and you can press any one key. And for the most, it’ll sound good. Sure some notes sound a little bit better than others, but any one finger touching a piano will sound pretty good. When you take two or three fingers and especially you take two hands and you have to press several keys at the same time. That’s when you can get into problems. Now if you get one or two fingers that are in the wrong place, you’re going to sound a little bit out of tune. If you get four or five fingers out of place, you could become a dreadful noise. Well, your name is apply a similar action. best way I can sum it up is the sound of music, produced by a piano can be documented with sheet music. The vibration produced by your names can be documented with name reality. And as you know, I’ve written a book on the subject. It’s a 200 page fully instructional book that guides you through the whole process. So you can actually analyse your name, you can analyse somebody else’s name. And it also shows you how you can actually make modifications to change your name, to bring balance into your life to take away the ball and chain you’ve been dragging behind you maybe for for all of your life or in some cases just comes in and goes out like I had with my situation with the name Paul, where for three years, I’d go into the letter U for loss. Now, before I let you, Bertie, and let me just add, don’t let everybody immediately think, oh, I’ve got a you in my name, this is negative. No, it’s all about the balance. Now in my case, the EU would fall into place when I also had another EU in my surname, so I had double use, which is double loss. And then it would coincide with a letter like oh, from my middle name, which signifies money and stability. So every time I went into a sequence of letters, it was extremely negative. You can have a you in your name, but if it’s with other positive letters in your names, then it doesn’t have to be financial losses. It can be just loss of interest, losing interest in a subject and moving on to something else. So it’s not all doom and gloom. It’s not all doom and gloom.
David Ralph [8:59]
You You could feel I was ready to buy ink and you know you you it was holding me up. So let’s just sort of phrase your life because obviously the reason you’re on the show is the subject you’ve just talked about. So we’re going to spend a lot of time there. But it would be wrong not to say where you are. Because as he was recording, it sounded like there was a rooster going off in the background. And you were very exotic, very tropical, and for many of us would go, that is the dream life. So tell us where you are at the moment and how that came about.
Lyon G. Zonamyari [9:33]
Right now. For the last five years, I’ve been on a little island in the southwest Caribbean called San Andreas, nothing to do with the San Andreas Fault in California. If you draw a straight line from Miami, which is where I lived before, straight south through Cuba through the Cayman Islands, straight down to the Panama Canal. Just come back up 250 miles from the past. Mr. Kemal and that is where San Andres Island is. And it’s, it’s about 350 miles south of the Caymans. And about 250 miles north of the Panama Canal. There’s two islands actually, the one I’m on is quite commercial. It’s very touristy, very small island. It’s only 10 miles from top to bottom, about a mile and a half across. So you can’t really go very far. And the the population is quite high here. On the smaller Island that’s about 50 miles north, that is paradise. It’s called Providence or Providence here. And they recommended the book Treasure Island was actually based on Providence, Rhode Island. It’s, it’s a very mountainous terrain. The ocean the coral reefs are just magnificent. Providence it only has 6000 people. It is very, very quiet, but it’s absolute paradise. It’s too transport. In fact, a friend of mine from England and came over here a couple of months ago, I said, I’ve got to take you to Providence here. And when I got in there he was well, now I know why. But San Andreas, where I live, it’s it’s a great place. Just a little bit busy, which is not always what I’m looking for. I do like some peace and tranquillity. But then I’m getting a bit older. My my years are ticking by.
David Ralph [11:24]
You’ve got plenty plenty of time left. What What fascinates me is obviously you’re an Englishman, and you’re living in a place that sounds Captain jack Sparrow paradise?
Lyon G. Zonamyari [11:33]
David Ralph [11:34]
yes, I can quite Imagine you’re walking around doing your Jacks power impression. Now. That’s that kind of talent on my shows, Join Up Dots. So no experience is wasted. And one thing leads on to another is your journey. The same has it linked up with the balancing of your name. If you were put in a room and said right, it’s either that you work towards it, making good career choices. Oh, it’s lead fair because of the way your names balanced out, what would you say?
Lyon G. Zonamyari [12:06]
It’s a combination. I mean, the name system that I’ve discovered is a major, major part of your life, your do for sure what your names do influence your life to quite a serious degree. However, you cannot discount other factors. For example, family, upbringing, childhood, these things are very important. This is why in the cases of perhaps two brothers, one brother is inspired by the music teacher at school and goes on to become a wonderful pianist. Whereas the second brother mixes in with some of the wrong kids ends up dealing in drugs and gets shot in a gang fight. There’s also karma I’m a great believer in past life karma part of my journey. was actually being, I wouldn’t say obsessed. But I was just intrigued with, what are we doing here? What’s this all about? Where do we come from? Have we been here before? So I went on a spiritual journey some 20 odd years ago, and I discovered this is my 72nd lifetime here on this planet. And I’ve been back through a lot of them. I’ve been back the equivalent of about 30,000 years. Quite a magnificent journey, which, which, again, was more things that opened up my eyes to why we are the way we are, why we respond to certain things, how we mix with certain people and don’t mix with other people. It’s a wonderful journey life on this planet. It’s quite amazing.
David Ralph [13:46]
So if it is, you know, being devil’s advocate, and I’m sure there’s a lot of people listening to this out there, thinking I’ve never heard of this before. I don’t quite understand it, which is why they should buy your book. But if there’s so many things mixed up, we buy ground and history and all that kind of stuff. How have you developed or defined a system we’ve been by when there’s so many different sort of factors involved? How does that lead towards a system and name system?
Lyon G. Zonamyari [14:14]
Well, I haven’t actually designed this system. The system has been kicking around for thousands of years. But for the most it’s been kept a secret. The the most recent person to actually use the basics of this system was a guy called Ron’s pig, who was also from England. Unfortunately, Ron’s passed away about a year ago. So I’m now the only person that is actually continuing with this name system. And I’ve actually taken it to higher levels. In my study, in my research, I was able to crack the code, almost like this code was left there purposely for me to find it. And I’ve been able to take the system to higher levels, and I decided that this information needed to be shared with everybody. So Yes, I do offer a consultancy service. I have clients all around the world. They come to me whether they read the book or not read the book and I analyse their names and I sometimes help them change a name or modify a name. But the system Yeah, it has been around for a long time now with Lawrence Paik, he actually kind of shot to fame. About almost 10 years ago, there was a aspiring model called Laura Hollins. And she was a go get a tight girl, and she just wasn’t getting anywhere. Well, it actually happened that she was in the letter you from Laura, which is for loss and she was also in the H from Holland for stress and strain. She made up with Lawrence payg. And he changed her name to Agnes Dean. overdemand. Yeah, yeah. Well, one year later, she was voted model of the Year in 2007, she became the face of Armani and Burberry. Now, Laura was already signed to a London agency called models one. Absolutely nothing about her circumstances changed. She stayed with the same agency. She kept the same hairstyle and her look, yet her life and a career skyrocketed soon after her name change.
David Ralph [16:25]
But could that not just be the case that, you know, the stars lined up? It was your moment and that that look that is very useful for models comes in cycles, doesn’t it? Sometimes we want skinny models. Sometimes we want chunky models. Sometimes we want. Maybe it was just her time or would you dispute that?
Lyon G. Zonamyari [16:44]
Sure. That, like I said, there’s many, many factors that come into play that that dictate the direction that our life is going to go. astrology is a good one. If you find a good astrologer, they can come up with some Fantastic information that is really true to your life path. Now all of us have a life path from the very second that you’re born, your life path is fixed, that pathway is fixed. However, as you go down that pathway, there are doorways on the left hand side and the right hand side, thousands of them. And sometimes you just open a doorway to make a split decision, close it, take the next step down your pathway, turn to the right, go through a different doorway. And you might immerse yourself in that room for maybe two or three minutes. On the other hand, you might then look at and say, oh, there’s two more doors in the corner of the room and you’ll go through those doors and experience different things. But every time you come back to your astrological path, so that path is fixed, but it’s all about which doorways we go through. The way I like to summarise it is that when you come to this Planet, you’re actually living out the part. You auditioned for a part in a movie, and you got the part. And the great thing is that the director is a lovely, lovely person. He allows us to ad lib, and he actually likes us to improvise. So this is where choice comes in. your actual pathway is fixed. But what happens day to day, minute by minute can change just by a split second choice. And when you have balanced names, you tend to make better decisions because you’re not under any stress. There’s no mental or physical low that you don’t have a ball and chain that you’re dragging behind you. My experience shows that about 50% of the population, certainly in the Western world using the Roman alphabet can seriously seriously do with a name Change, about 40% don’t need to change their names, but the information can be extremely beneficial. Knowing when the sun is gonna shine, knowing when to take advantage of good times and grab your sunglasses, a towel and a pair of shorts and go to the beach can be very, very useful. And if for example, you know that there’s a good chance it’s gonna rain tomorrow. What do you do? You don’t stay at home and Hibernate, you’ve got to get on with your life. But if you know that it might rain tomorrow, you take an umbrella and a raincoat. And if it does rain, guess what? You don’t get wet. Awareness is key being prepared. So yes, there aren’t many factors that come into play. But the great thing with this name system, and I’ll go through a bit more of the history is that it’s a system that you can very quickly calculate and you can see what’s going on with other types of things. This is not so easy to do. I mean with, for example, past life karma. I had to go through several months of discovering my past, which is reflected on my life today, you can go to an astrologer, you can get different readings, and they will also bring additional information. What we eat, drink and breathe affects us mentally and physically. I mean, the food we eat today is no longer food. It’s all full of chemicals and sugars and pesticides, and God knows what else. But this name system, now that I’ve cracked the code, and I’ve put it all in the book, anybody can pick up the book and very quickly calculate what’s going on in their life and you can then make adjustments.
David Ralph [20:46]
Right. I’ve got a couple of questions and Leon because it’s, I mean tree by base. Now. You had us and obviously, I knew nothing about this until we started speaking. So some of this is just what I’ve picked up from What you’re saying, so please bat it back at me and tell me I’m totally wrong. But I understand that you having a you in your name is bad. Would that be right? First of all?
Lyon G. Zonamyari [21:10]
No. It can be if it falls in with other letters, which are also negative, if it falls in with letters that are positive. For example, there’s a good friend of mine in England, his name is also Paul. We’ve been friends for many, many years. And he is very successful in what he does. He has a great life. He’s very happy, financially secure, but his name is Paul. Now, the last time that he went into the letter U, he also had positive letters from his other names. For example, p represents power and success. g represents gains in all areas of your life. In his case, he had the letter you came in, I think it was about 2007 2008 2009 around that time, and I was with him and I said, Well, what was going on? don’t have that time, then it shows you you’ve got the EU, which is for loss. But as far as I know, financially, you were doing very well. He said, Yes, yes, a thing. Things were going great. And then he thought about it. And he said, I said, Yeah, he said that that new business that I set up a couple of years before that, once I’d got it up and running, and everything was running smoothly, I kind of got there, done it, and I lost interest. So you represents loss. It can be lost in many, many areas. In his case, because he had all these positive letters still backing up, running through, he was still going in leaps and bounds moving on to another company that he set up, bought another property, and so on and so on. But he lost interest in one of those projects. And he then passed it on and he put a a guy in on a partnership basis and the business is still running very well today. So it’s all about balance, David. Oh, I’d love to analyse your names.
David Ralph [22:58]
Well going in on I will give you my name because I’ve written it down and I was looking at it. And I think for the first time in my life, I’ve suddenly thought, oh, I’ve got five letters in mind, first name and five letters in my Christian name. It never dawned on me ever. But my name, I kind of balanced up with the numbers, but I don’t know what the characters actually stand for.
Lyon G. Zonamyari [23:20]
Well, to analyse somebody names, the full process, the documentation takes me about three or four hours to prepare. However, from the name, David, Ralph, I know that you’re also born on the first like, I put into an email that I sent you originally, you’re an energizer bunny, you just keep going and going and going.
David Ralph [23:43]
No, I’m actually born on the 30th
Lyon G. Zonamyari [23:47]
Oh, I thought on the
on Facebook, it says says the first.
David Ralph [23:52]
Oh yeah, that was that was a mistake. That was okay. And I got bombarded with people saying Happy birthday to me on the first day. I couldn’t understand why they were saying it until I realised.
Lyon G. Zonamyari [24:03]
Now you know,
David Ralph [24:05]
what 30th birthday?
Lyon G. Zonamyari [24:08]
Well, actually, that is even better, because that brings more balance in because David is a very, very edgy name, capable of great achievement also capable of great disaster. Actually, Albert Einstein had a personality that’s similar to the personalities that you have from the name, David. So, it does have lots of mental activity. And then the name Ralph has lots of physical activity. Generally, both those names are quite extrovert, for example, with the name Ralph, and just give you a quick reading of the name, Ralph, and I’m sure I’m sure this will relate to you. Hardly hard work usually brings you good results and money you like Success and like to be rewarded or taken care of because you do not like to be without. Some with this name will dislike loud or certain discordant noises yet know that you are safe around fire explosions and heights. You are very direct preferring simplicity. You can show good judgement. You are original and inventive find solutions you have a versatile constructive and active mind. You stand firm without fear. If a woman has this name, it actually gives a man’s strength in a woman’s body. For your career. You are a natural leader very capable in business often heading or running a company. You are artistic with a good eye for design. Love, you need to make time in your busy schedule for love. Negative. Well, when the negatives come in, they don’t always come in but if negative circumstances come in, you can sometimes be critical. You can also be a little bit extra Sometimes to gain attention. And be careful because wrong friends will lead you astray.
Does any of that resonate with you?
David Ralph [26:08]
Well, it does. It does. But once again with my Devil’s advocates in my shoulder, when, because of the job I’m doing, wouldn’t that be sort of possible to just say that because how I am and that I’m out there? Is it you see what I’m saying? I was picking up on it and I thought, yeah, okay leader doing this doing that. But I would probably say the same for most people doing the same job as I’m doing.
Lyon G. Zonamyari [26:34]
Yes, but then people with that personality are very outward going. My wife has that personality within her as well and she’s extremely outward going. The fact that you’re born on the 30th actually balances very nicely because the fact for for people born on the 30th they tend to be relaxed and stress free. They have a good brain and they take control of situations. So that balances nicely with the the high energy that you’ve got from the David and from the Ralph. Obviously, as I said, it takes me a few hours to fully prepare a name analysis for someone. And I also give them pages and pages of information for them to go through the highlight to understand, but probably more exciting for most people is the events chart to see the influences that are going on year by year, throughout your life. And when I give people a chart and start to explain the chart to them, they go, Wow, yeah, that that is what was going on when I was 18 and 19 years old, and wow. Yeah, that’s exactly what happened when I was 25. And when I was 30. it’s it’s a it’s an incredible system. Like I said, it doesn’t tell you Oh, tomorrow you’re gonna meet a tall dark stranger at 12 o’clock midday. He’ll be wearing a pink carnation you’re gonna fall in love. Get married have 2.4 children, a dog and a picket fence and a station waggon car with wood down the side. No, it doesn’t go into those sort of details. It gives you the big grand picture, the big grand picture. And it’s a very, very useful system that anybody can use. Anybody can actually use the book and just calculate their names. It’s quite amazing.
David Ralph [28:23]
write some words now and it’s gonna take us to the next stage of our conversation. But obviously, typical Join Up Dots. We will keep on jumping back and forth. But these are the words from Jim Carrey. My
Jim Carrey [28:34]
father could have been a great comedian, but he didn’t believe that that was possible for him. And so he made a conservative choice. Instead, he got a safe job as an accountant. And when I was 12 years old, he was let go from that safe job. And our family had to do whatever we could to survive. I learned many great lessons from my father, not the least of which was that you can fail at what you don’t want. So you might as well take a chance on doing What you love?
David Ralph [29:01]
Now you was telling me just before we started recording, but your life has been a roller coaster, huge peaks of money flying towards you and veins or instant troughs. was fat. Thinking about what Jim Carrey said? Was that because you were going for something that you didn’t love? Is Your Life far more stable now because you found the thing that ties in to those words?
Lyon G. Zonamyari [29:27]
Not exactly no for for the most. The things that I’ve done in my life, I have had lots of pleasure, lots of enjoyment from the various ventures that I’ve been involved in. I can honestly say that now Yes, I’m, I’m happier now than I ever have been. And I don’t have the alcohol problems that I had for most of my life with my previous names. So my life has changed for the better. I’ve become more balanced, more calm and I’m fortunate that I’m now doing something that I truly, truly love. I’m probably making less money now financially than I ever have done. However, I’ve adjusted my lifestyle accordingly. And I’m actually very, very happy with what I have success and happiness. Sure we all need money to get ahead, everybody has bills to pay. But I think it’s more important to actually do something that you really enjoyed something that you really love. And obviously go for favourable financial compensation to keep you at a standard that you’re happy with. I found that in my life sometimes when I was making lots of money. I was working like seven days a week and 1214 hour days. I never had any time to enjoy anything. But then on the flip side, when I went through these, these drops where nothing would seem seem to work that was Also a very painful time as well. So everything in life to me is about finding balance. Sure, it’s lovely to be be successful and financially secure. But you need to be able to enjoy that time. Also, you can’t just be too much of a workaholic, enjoy what you do put in the hours that you feel, what you can do and be comfortable and have some time out also.
David Ralph [31:26]
No, I agree with that totally. And I was reflecting on the choices that you have made in your life, the fact that you’re living in the Caribbean At the moment, which is what people normally will save up for two weeks, and then go off there and then come back to their own life. You’ve made those choices that has made your life easier in some ways, and certainly with the connectivity, the fact that I’m in the United Kingdom at the moment. You are where you are. And we are literally having a conversation like we’re sitting next to each other. Does that make the possibility of taking these Hold choices into the majority of people’s lives can can they no matter where they are at the moment doing whatever they’re doing, can I start taking action and ultimately create the dream life like it seems like you have.

Let me give you an example of someone that I met when I was 16 years old. Bless you up, I’ll backtrack just a little bit. I’ve got vivid memories from the age of three years of age. When I was five, I can remember looking at ants looking at an ants nest. And I was thinking, even though they can’t speak, they appear to be more organised and we humans, when I was eight, I would think something which I’m sure many people have thought, which is, what am I actually awake? What am I dreaming? How do we know when we’re awake? And how do we know when it’s actually a dream? But I then went beyond that. And I thought, well, what if I do not really exist at all, and maybe I’m just the imagination of another person. Dream. So I’ve always had a vivid imagination. But when I was 16, I was with my father on a Saturday, my mother went shopping to the supermarket. And my dad said, hey, let’s go to a bar and we’ll, we’ll have a pint of beer. Even though I was 16. I managed to get into the pub, okay, have a pint of beer. And of course, in those days, he didn’t have photo ID. So you could have been annoying
David Ralph [33:25]
me days. And I would have said, Yeah,
Unknown Speaker [33:27]
Yeah, exactly. So
Lyon G. Zonamyari [33:31]
we’re in this pub. It was in Winchester. I’d never actually been to this puppy for neither had my father and we never actually returned there again. But while we were in there, we decided to play by billions, which for the people who are outside of the UK Barbie leads is like a miniature sort of version of Paul or snooker on a little small table. And so we started to play this game, and it was a guy in the bar who walked over and asked if he could join us in playing with the game circle. He said yes, yeah, sure, come and join us. Well, the guy didn’t have hands. He had a hook on one side and a plastic hand on the other. We got talking to this guy, and he knew my name. He knew my birthday. He knew many things about me. And I was like, taken aback. I was like, Wow, what’s going on here? To cut a long story short, the guy said, Well, I’m going to have to go now. But he said, I want to tell you something. He said, You can be as good as anybody else. You can do anything you want to do on this planet. But never, ever think you are the best. Because the day that you think you are the best is the day that you will get knocked off that pedestal and he said, you’ll remember this till the day you die because it was the man with the plastic hand and the hook the total He left. I never saw him again. But I’ve lived by that. I’ve lived by that. In fact, in the 1980s, I was a pretty active racecar driver, those two racing former three, I raced in the Porsche series. And I was very, very successful. I won the majority of the races that I entered. And when I was racing, when I was sitting there on the starting grid, I would always say to myself, remember, Paul, you can be as good as anybody else. And that’s how I’ve been living my life ever since.
David Ralph [35:35]
So So how do you know your name and stuff?
Lyon G. Zonamyari [35:38]
I don’t know. I have absolutely no idea. Obviously, the guy must have had some psychic intuition. And it was just one of those stepping stones in my life, but he set me off in the right direction.
David Ralph [35:54]
It’s weird that you’re you’re at that age and you’ve got a man with a hook and then you end up living across Treasure Island. That’s kind of weird.
Unknown Speaker [36:04]
Ah, Jim glad Yeah.
David Ralph [36:06]
All the all the dots pull together. So so when you was that 16 year old kid and yours or a little bit older motor racing and stuff. Were you going with the flow? Did you have a fixed career path? It seems quite eclectic the kind of experiences you’ve had in your life.
Lyon G. Zonamyari [36:25]
I was basically chasing the money. I was doing what a lot of people do, I was chasing the money. And some things would work well and some things wouldn’t. So if something was working well, I would follow it and run with it. In in, in part because I perhaps for example, I started a sign business. Oh, this was in the 1980s. And it was making letters of the alphabet. There we go letters again letters and words, making letters of the alphabet on cell phones. PVC like the same plastic Zhan the old style tax desk you put on your car, your car window, so it would stick on the glass. I made letters of the alphabet and put them in boxes so that a shop could put instant signs on their shop window. And this thing took off like like rocket fuel. And within several months I had a sales force of 20 people I was exporting to wholesalers in France. But we sold so much of the product over about a five year period, I literally flooded the UK market. That’s when I went into a loss there wasn’t because of my names was because I flooded the market. But I I bounced back I then went into the car business. Before that I had a nightclub. I’ve been bouncing around bouncing around, searching for something and I guess like You set the hook, and then the letters with the sign business, everything has been pointing towards this direction that I’ve now gone. And we do have a life path. And it’s all about really following your intuition and making the right choices, learning by your mistakes at the same time, but making the right choices. And what I have discovered is that if you have good balanced names, you tend to make better choices, you tend to see that doorway, that pathway with a green flashing light saying, Hey, this is the place to go. Come here, come here, whereas sometimes there’s a doorway and it’s got a red flashing light, same danger, but we don’t always see it. So it’s all about having a clear mind and the laws of attraction. Very, very important. I wish I’d have known more about the laws of attraction many, many years ago, it would have taken me on a perhaps, on a slightly better path in some ways.
David Ralph [39:00]
Since I would we look at in the world today that has got a very good naturally balanced name. Are there examples that you can give us so we can all take a look.
Lyon G. Zonamyari [39:12]
In my book. In my book, I actually demonstrate with something like 20 celebrities. You can see how with Rihanna and Simon cow, it shows how their lives have gone from nowhere to being completely on top.
In the case of Rihanna,
she has the name, Rianna, and then she hasn’t the name Fenty. It just opened the book so I can quote exactly Her name’s Robin, our ob YN the the end is positive. The y is very, very positive. The O is for money and stability. Rianna which is actually her middle name has a another good helping of ends which are very positive. She also has the name Fenty f e n t y, which also has a y again for success. And then her mother’s maiden name which is included in this system is Braithwaite and if you look at her chart from the age 18, or actually it’s 17, one of the letter y’s came in and then from age 18 right through to her mid 20s. She had the Y from Robin and the y from Fenty, which is double success. If you look at the names for Simon Cal, you can see on ash I met Simon cow back in the 1980s in a in a little Club by Sun. Sloane Square called the main squeeze, but I’m sure he doesn’t remember me. But his names it shows all the turbulence that was going On when he went through a bankruptcy, but then also shows how from roundabout 1998 all these positive letters came into his chart. He didn’t know they were there,
David Ralph [41:11]
then let me just have you on board. Well, what do you mean at a certain time letters came into his chart? What what does that actually mean?
Lyon G. Zonamyari [41:20]
Okay, once again, it’s a two part system. The first part is about your personalities and the balance of your personalities. The second part shows out individual letters from each of your names. They rotate in a specific sequence every year on your birthday. And it’s the combination of these letters that push an influence as to what’s going to happen in your life. And with Simon Cowell. his middle name is Philip, and the P is for power and success. And there’s two peas in the name Philip and because the last letter is P and the first letter is a P, when he finished the first top, when he finished the last p in Philip, he then went into another phase of the first P. So he had the P, he also had the the end from the Simon which is very positive. He also had the L from Kal el is for advancement. It’s very positive. And also he had the letter G from his mother’s maiden name down gleesh. So during these years, Simon had all these positive letters that were giving him an invisible helping hand. He probably had no clue why, but obviously he is a very out there go out getting type of guy just from his actual personalities. He’s very much a networking, it shows immediately that he’s a networker. He’s very good with communications, working with people delegating, but the combination of the balance of his names and with this incredible chart that he had for a period that went on for quite some time it gave him this invisible helping hand. Now at the same time, in the book, I also talked about Amy Winehouse and Heath Ledger. And it shows how they were going through incredible, incredible mental stress, incredible mental stress. with Amy Winehouse, she had some positive letters that that got her career started. But then she went into this slump and obviously we know the story with Amy very, very sad situation. Also a very, very sad situation with Heath Ledger as well, because they’re no longer here. But yeah, so
David Ralph [43:42]
does it serve just for example, in my name, is it the first year I’m born, but D applies the second year the A applies and many sort of rotates is that what that means?
Lyon G. Zonamyari [43:52]
Sort of but the letter D lasts for four years. The a lasts for one year. The V lasts for For years that I lost for nine years, the P in the Ralph last for seven years. Each letter has a life term and we can actually plot this chart. The actual system. Like I said, it has been around for thousands of years. Just to give you a very brief sort of background I talked about Lawrence Paik, he actually picked up a copy of a book that was published in 1929 by via Lita and Lv to palm oil, these two women because I’ve researched them, they devoted their entire life to researching names and different names systems out there and how they influence your life. Some people listening Oh, this is numerology. No, this is not numerology this is, this is not numerology at all. numerology is a very good system provides some great information, but this is very, very different. The only similarity with numerology and what I have is we use numbers to do calculations. Name reality is the only system that you can use to actually modify a name or create a name to any desire that you choose. There are 64 personalities that separate the human race. You might have heard the number 64 before there’s 64 code ons that make up your, your DNA, there’s 64 hexagrams. In the E Ching, the 64 squares on a chessboard is a very powerful mathematical force, the 64 personalities that make up you, or 64 choices of personality. Each of your names is two personalities. So David has personality number 22 primarily, and you’re picking up an undertone from personality number 32 as well. So if you do the mathematics, if you look at people in general, the odds of two people having the same combination of name personalities is one in 200 billion. This system is as accurate as pinpointing your DNA or your fingerprints. And then like I said, the second part of the system shows how these letters rotate. And you can produce this chart which sees shows you what is going on year by year in your life. Now, the history there was this book in 1929, written by these two sisters, and that’s the same book that I used to create my book called name reality. And obviously, the book has lots of old, old terms. And there’s lots of Chinese proverbs in there that hadn’t been translated that I was able to translate the brought new information, but it’s based on this 1929 book. Now, going back further, if you go back a couple of thousand years ago, this whole system was actually recorded and preserved in its splendid entirety, known to the ancients as the way of life in China, and a more complicated version can be found in the Indian vein. And the Hebrew kabbalists going back even further several thousand years, a great hieratic Papyrus, which was then translated and is known as the book of the master of the secret house, it was discovered in Egypt. And the original copy is preserved in the library in Paris. translation was published in all the late 1800s by a guy called w Martian Adams. So this system has been around for hundreds if not thousands of years. And for the most it’s been kept a secret because it is so incredibly accurate. so powerful.
David Ralph [47:39]
So so just before we send you back in time on the Sermon on the mic, bring in the show, too. And then did you when you was doing your name because it’s, it’s in front of me, it’s on my screen. Did you choose loads of different names and keep them? Oh, no, I could make it slightly better by moving around or was it something that just naturally came to you?
Lyon G. Zonamyari [48:00]
It took me about three months to actually put the whole thing together. with clients that I work with. Sometimes we come up with something within a matter of days or a couple of weeks. Sometimes you just have to change one name sometimes changing one name, perhaps a middle name, you don’t even use change it, replace it with something else that balances better brings in some positive letters is more vibrant, can make a huge difference. But in my case, yeah, of course, our lives have already happened. We’re living out the part in the movie, but of course we have the options to to diverse and go down different avenues and make choices. So it was in my destiny to have this name. So I’m fulfilling my destiny. But yes, bit by bit things did fall into place. I was looking for certain personalities. I wanted to keep some of my original personalities because I I liked myself, but I didn’t like the way they used to act sometimes. And I didn’t like the alcohol problem that I had. I couldn’t take alcohol. But now that I change my name I kicked out Whole, I might become a much more common reserved person not so hyper as I was before. But yeah, it, it’s a process, it is a process that you just, you have to understand the system. That’s what I do. And with clients that I work with, I encourage them to read the book, because then I can work with them. And they understand the system a little bit better. So we can create a name that they like, they have to love their new name. And I have to like it as well. It has to work mathematically for me,
David Ralph [49:32]
the only person I know that’s changed their name, I used to work with a girl who changed her middle name to Skywalker. And she had a terrible time with passports and getting driving licences and all that kind of stuff got into the sort of local newspaper, because because of the issues, so when you change your name, just the last question before we bring the show to the end. Do you actually have to change your legal documentation or can you just start saying that My name?
Lyon G. Zonamyari [50:01]
No, you have to do it legally you have to carve it in stone, because this is related to documentation, vibration that comes from letters of the alphabet that are actually going back way, way back come from ancient symbols. So you do have to do it legally. In England, it’s a very simple process. And as long as the name that you’re choosing is not something that’s obtuse or racial, then there’s no problem. The passport office say yes, yes, yes. Thank you very much. Here’s your new passport. Here’s your new driver’s licence now go and change your bank account, change this, change that and so on and so on. In the USA, you have to make a court appearance. But apart from that, it’s pretty simple. I’ve got a client in Italy where it’s more difficult. It’s very difficult in France, but in many parts of the world, it is quite simple and straightforward. But yes, you do have to document it. You have to carve it in stone, you’d say hey, Out with the old in with the new This is the new me and the Lord Of Attraction are very, very real. Your names can help halt or hinder your progress.
David Ralph [51:09]
And do you ever feel like shooting that rooster in the background?
Lyon G. Zonamyari [51:14]
I got used to it actually, I mean, there’s quite a few roosters that there’s a couple of dogs out the back that belong to my neighbor’s one is very, very friendly with me because he got hit by a motorbike and broke his leg. And I was the only person that took him to the little animal hospital and put a cast on his leg and fixed them and took care of him for a couple of weeks. That is also in my new names. I’m very caring and loving, and I love animals. So
Unknown Speaker [51:39]
it’s all in the name.
David Ralph [51:41]
No rooster murdering today well let him keep on screaming until lunchtime. Well, this is the end of the show now early on. And this is the part when we’re going to send you back in time to have a one on one with your younger self.
