erkki

FORM OF:
erik
LANGUAGE FAMILY:
indo-european > germanic > north germanic > old norse
ORIGIN:
germanic  /  old norse 
NAME ROOT:
*AINA(Z) / *AIWA(Z) *RíKIAZ > *AINA-RIKIAR / *AIWA-RIKIAR > ÆIRíKR > EIRÍKR
MEANING:
This name derives from the Old Norse name Æiríkr > Eiríkr, younger form of “*Aina-rikiaR / *Aiwa-rikiaR”. The name is composed of two elements: “*aina(z) / *aiwa(z)” (always, one, alone) plus “ríkr” (mighty, distinguished). The name means “the one and only, ever powerful”. Although the name was in use in Anglo-Saxon England, its use was reinforced by Scandinavian settlers arriving before the Norman Invasion. It was an uncommon name in England until the middle ages, when it gained popularity, and finally became a common name in the 19th century. In Norway, Sweden and Finland, the name day for Erik and Eirik is on May 18, commemorating the death of Saint Eric of Sweden. Eric IX of Sweden (Erik the Saint, Eric the Holy, † 1160) was king of Sweden from 1150 to 1960, Eric did much to aid Christianity in his realm and was responsible for codifying the laws of his kingdom, which became known as King Eric's Law.

Numerological Values:

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.
