NAME ROOT:
'ÊLı̂YÂH / 'ÊLı̂YÂHÛ > ELIYAHU
NATIVE NAME ROOT:
ELIYAHU (אֱלִיָּהוּ) HēLíAS (Ἡλίας)
MEANING:
This name derives from the Hebrew “'êlı̂yâh / 'êlı̂yâhû > Eliyahu”, Ancient Greek Hēlías (Ἡλίας), meaning “my God is the lord”. Eliyahu was a famous prophet and a miracle worker in the northern kingdom of Israel during the reign of Ahab (9th century BC), according to the Biblical Books of Kings, as well as the Qur'an. In Islam, the Qur'an describes Elijah as a great and righteous prophet of God, and one who powerfully preached against the worship of Ba'al. In Macedonia, Serbia, Bulgaria and Romania, he is known as “Elijah the Thunderer”, and in folklore is held responsible for summer storms, hail, rain, thunder, and dew.

9
Numerological Values:
9

A number 9 person is humane and selfless. Compassion, tolerance, idealism and sensitivity are the hallmarks of number 9. Number 9 individuals often give unselfishly to others.

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.
