pen

SHORT FORM OF:
penelope
LANGUAGE FAMILY:
indo-european > hellenic > greek
ORIGIN:
greek 
NAME ROOT:
PḗNē ōPS (-ELōPS) > PēNELōPS > PēNELóPē
NATIVE NAME ROOT:
PḗNē (πήνη) ōPS (ὤψ) PēNELōPS (πηνέλοψ / πηνέλωψ) PēNELóPē (Πηνελόπη)
MEANING:
This name derives from the Pre-Greek “pēnelōps (πηνέλοψ / πηνέλωψ) Pēnelópē (Πηνελόπη),” composed of two elements: “pḗnē (πήνη)” (plot, weft, spool, tale, story) plus “ōps (ὤψ)” (to the eye, in the face, eye). The usual meaning is “weaver, duck, some bird.” It should be noted that the second part of the name could be from the Pre-Greek suffix "-elōps (-έλωψ)," often used for predatory animals. In Homer's Odyssey, Penelope is Ulysses' wife, who keeps her suitors under control in her long absence before rejoining him. Latin references to Penelope revolved around the sexual loyalty to her absent husband. It suited the martial aspect of Roman society representing the tranquility of the worthy family. She is mentioned by various classical authors including Plautus, Propertius, Horace, Ovid, Martial, and Statius.

Chakra Number:
8: The number of the Chakra "Etheric Body"

At the base of the skull or Cerebellum and is also found to be linked to the causal chakra just above the crown chakra to the left in the etheric body. This center enables the individual to achieve advanced out-of-body projection, etheric projection, spiritual perception, and spiritual wisdom. I use the word spiritual here because these abilities and ideas are larger than the self and the earth and is were the ability of remote viewing resides.

Color meaning:

Black is the color of the hidden, the secretive and the unknown, creating an air of mystery. It keeps things bottled up inside, hidden from the world. In color psychology the meaning of the color black is protection from external emotional stress. It creates a barrier between itself and the outside world, providing comfort while protecting its emotions and feelings, and hiding its vulnerabilities, insecurities and lack of self-confidence. In times of fear and uncertainty black contains the energy of the threatening unknown. In a positive state, black is seen as a restful emptiness into which anything may emerge and disappear once again. It is also mysterious, providing a sense of potential and possibility.
