rufinus

LANGUAGE FAMILY:
indo-european > italic > latin
ORIGIN:
latin 
NAME ROOT:
RūFUS
MEANING:
This name derives from the Latin cognomen “rūfus”, literally meaning "red, somber, red-haired". 1) Rufina and Secunda († 257) were Roman virgin-martyrs and Christian saints. Their feast day is celebrated on July 10. 2) San Rufillo Forlimpopoli, or Ruffillo (IV century - V century), was the first bishop of Forlimpopoli and is revered as a saint by the Catholic Church. 3) William II, the third son of William I of England, was King of England from 1087 until 1100, with powers over Normandy, and influence in Scotland. He was less successful in extending control into Wales. William is commonly known as William Rufus, perhaps because of his red-faced appearance. The feast day is traditionally celebrated on July 18 and July 29.

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.
