Name Root:
This name means “descendant of Dubhán, little dark one.” Dubhán was the founder of the church of Killooaun or Cill Dhubháin, “the church of Dubhán,” Ballymacward, County Galway. All that now exists of the church are ruins, but it was once the center of a medieval vicarage. It has been suggested that it belonged to a period later than that of Killamude. Next to nothing appears to be known of Dubhán; beyond that, he seems to have been an essential cleric among the Soghain in the early Irish Christian era.

Chakra Number: #9
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.
