Name Root:
hḗlios dôron > Hêliódôros
This name derives from the Ancient Greek “Hêliódôros (Ήλιόδωσος),” composed of two elements: “hḗlios ‎(ἥλιος)” (sun, east, day, sunshine) plus “dôron ‎(δῶρον)” (gift). In turn, the name means “gift of the sun God Helios.” 1) Heliodorus of Athens was an ancient author who wrote fifteen books on the Acropolis of Athens, possibly about 150 BC. 2) Heliodorus was a legate of Seleucus IV Philopator (~187–175 BC). Some historical sources say that he assassinated Seleucus and seized the throne for himself, before Antiochus IV Epiphanes, the brother of the late king, with the help of the Pergamon monarch, Eumenes II, recovered it. 3) Heliodorus was an Indo-Greek ambassador sent to the court of King Bhagabhadra by Antialcidas (Indo-Greek King of Taxila) in 113 BC. He is known for building a pillar called the “Khamb Baba” or “Heliodurus Pillar,” which still exists in Vidisha, India, near Bhopal, India.

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.
