samuel

LANGUAGE FAMILY:
afro-asiatic > semitic > central semitic > hebrew
ORIGIN:
hebrew 
NAME ROOT:
SH'MA ALOHIM > SH'MA 'ÊL > SHEMÛ'ÊL
NATIVE NAME ROOT:
SH'MA ALOHIM (שם האלוהים / אלוהים שמע) SH'MA (שְׁמַע‎) 'ÊL (אל) SHEMÛ'ÊL (שְׁמוּאֵל)
MEANING:
This name derives from the Hebrew "sh'ma alohim > sh'ma 'êl > shemû'êl", meaning “his name is God, his name is El, The one who listens to God, God has heard”. Elohim is a grammatically plural noun for "gods" or "deity" in Biblical Hebrew. In Modern Hebrew it is often referred to in the singular, despite the “-im” ending that denotes plural masculine nouns in Hebrew. It is generally thought that Elohim is a formation from “eloah”, the latter being an expanded form of the Northwest Semitic noun “il (ʾēl)”. This is a name of Biblical tradition, and one of two books of the Old Testament and the Hebrew Tanakh. As a Christian name, Samuel came into common use after the Protestant Reformation. Famous bearers include the American inventor Samuel Morse (1791–1872), the Irish writer Samuel Beckett (1906–89) and the American author Samuel Clemens (1835–1910), who wrote under the pen name Mark Twain. In the Old Testament is used by Samuel, prophet and last of the Judges of Israel. The name Samuel is given to different characters in the Bible: 1) Son of Elkanah by his wife Hannah and judge or prophet of Israel during the days of Saul and David. 2) Son of Ammihud, spelled 'Shemuel', and the prince of the tribe of Simeon who was chosen to divide the land of Canaan between the tribes. 3) Son of Tola and grandson of Issachar, also spelled 'Shemuel'.

8
Numerological Values:

A person with name-number 8 is ambitious, confident, practical and has a great ability to execute plans. They are achievers and seek to reach the top of their field through hard work.

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.
