Name Root:
*þeudō *rīkijaz > ÞIUDREIKS > Theodorich
This name derives from Old High German “Theodorich,” composed of two elements: “*þeudō” (a people, a nation) plus “*rīkijaz” (kingly, royal, noble, mighty, distinguished, powerful, rich). In turn, the name means “a person that is distinguished and is full of strength.” Latin: Theodericus; Greek: Theodórikos (Θευδέριχος); Old English: Þēodrīc; Old Norse: Þjōðrēkr, Þīðrēkr. Theoderic the Great was king of the Ostrogoths, Italy’s ruler, regent of the Visigoths, and a governor of the Eastern Roman Empire. His Gothic name Þiudareiks translates into “people-king” or “ruler of the people.” A son of King Theodemir, an Amali nobleman, Theoderic was born in Pannonia after his people had defeated the Huns at the Battle of Nedao. Growing up as a hostage in Constantinople, Theoderic received a privileged education and succeeded his father as the Pannonian Ostrogoths leader in 471 AD.

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.
