aedh

LANGUAGE FAMILY:
indo-european > celtic > insular celtic > goidelic > irish
ORIGIN:
irish 
NAME ROOT:
ÁED / AODH > ÁEDáN
MEANING:
Aidan or Aiden are the primary anglicization of the Irish given name Aodhán and the Scottish Gaelic given name Aodhàn. The name derives from “áed”, an Irish word of Indo-European origin, equivalent to “fire” in English. Aodh and its many variants are used today in the Irish and Scottish Gaelic languages as a given name for both sexes (though feminine forms are less varied and less common), and in even more variants as a family name. Aodh was the name of a Celtic god, twin of Fionnuala and son of Lir. The four Children of Lir are legendary in Celtic mythology and were commemorated on Celtic wedding rings. Lir’s second wife, Aoife, turned Aodh into a swan. Aodh was also the name of a Celtic sun god. The Celtic sun god Aodh is an aspect of the Celtic god The Dagda.

Chakra Number:
9: The number of the Chakra "Pineal Gland"

The Pineal Gland is about the size of a pea, and is in the center of the brain in a tiny cave behind and above the pituitary gland which lies a little behind the root of the nose. It is located directly behind the eyes, attached to the third ventricle. This chakra is also known as the upper dan tien. The ninth chakra is an interesting chakra in that it is in this chakra that all the Christ abilities lie dormant, waiting to be released and used in the outer and inner worlds. The shift in focus at this time is toward that Christ energy and the accompanying abilities that go along with it. Hence, a great deal of work and energy is now being sent into physical reality to help the individual open up and expand this energy center.

Color meaning:

It is no surprise that gold symbolizes wealth used wisely, but it is also the symbol of good health. People who favor the color gold are optimistic. The Tibetan Buddhist believes in 5 sacred stones: the crystal for light, turquoise for infinity of sea and sky, coral for life and form, gold for the golden ray of the sun, silver for the light of the moon. Gold is intimately linked with Divinity and those gods associated with the Sun. It symbolizes wealth and success.
