LANGUAGE FAMILY:
afro-asiatic > semitic > central semitic > hebrew
ORIGIN:

NAME ROOT:
GəḇAR > GAḇRā ʾēL > GéVER EL > GAVRIE’L
NATIVE NAME ROOT:
GəḇAR ‎(גְּבַר) GAḇRā ‎(גַּבְרָא) ʾēL ‎(אֵל) GAVRIE’L (גבריאל)
MEANING:
This name derives from the Hebrew name “Gavrie’l”, composed of two elements: the “gəḇar / gaḇrā” (man, strong man, hero) plus “ʾēl” (God, the God of Israel). In turn the name means “man of God, strong man of God, the power of God, God has been strong”. In Islam, he is an archangel associated with the revelation of the Qur'an. Gabriel is mentioned in the Bible once in the Old Testament and once in the New. In the Old Testament, he appears to the prophet Daniel, delivering explanations of Daniel's visions (Daniel 8:15–26, 9:21–27). In the Gospel of Luke, Gabriel appears to the Virgin Mary and to Zechariah, foretelling the births of Jesus and John the Baptist, respectively (Luke 1:11–38). The feast day of the Archangel Gabriel is traditionally celebrated by the Catholic Church on September 29 and by the Orthodox Church on November 8.

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.
