monika

OTHER SCRIPTS:
Russian (Моника)
ORIGIN:
african  /  latin  /  greek 
NAME ROOT:
(MON) (MONEō) (MóNOS)
NATIVE NAME ROOT:
MóNOS (μόνος)
MEANING:
The origin of this name is still today quite uncertain. The theories include: 1) From the Latin “moneō”, which in turn derives from the Proto-Italic “*moneō”, meaning “warn, advise, remind”. 2) From the Ancient Greek “mónos (μόνος)”, meaning ”unique, alone, nun, solitary, hermit”. 3) An ancient name of North African origin whose etymology is unknown. The earliest reference to the name is found in ancient Numidian inscriptions. Numidia (202–46 BC), was an ancient Berber kingdom in modern-day Algeria and a smaller part of western Tunisia in North Africa. The name might include a reference to the ancient Libyan god “mon”, from Egyptian mythology “Amon” king of the gods. Saint Monica (AD 331–387) is remembered and honored in most Christian denominations, albeit on different feast days, for her outstanding Christian virtues, particularly the suffering caused by her husband's adultery, and her prayerful life dedicated to the reformation of her son, who wrote extensively of her pious acts and life with her in his Confessions. Popular Christian legends recall Saint Monica weeping every night for her son Augustine.

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.
