geraldo

ORIGIN:
germanic  /  english (anglo-saxon) 
NAME ROOT:
*GAIZAZ *WALDAʐ > GERVALD / GERWALD
MEANING:
This name derives from the Old English (Anglo-Saxon) name “Gervald”, composed of two Germanic elements: “*gaizaz” (spear, pike, javelin) and “*waldaʐ” (ruler, might, mighty one, power, powerful one). Géraud d'Aurillac (or Saint Gerald) is a French saint of the Roman Catholic Church, also recognized by other religious denominations of Christianity. Finally, it should be noted that, although phonetically similar, the name “Gerard” is not a variant of “Gerald”, even though the two names are often confused with one another. Gerald of Mayo († 731) is a saint of the Catholic Church. Born in Northumbria, the son of an Anglo-Saxon king, he was one of the English monks at Lindisfarne who accompanied Colmán of Lindisfarne to Iona and then to Ireland.

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.
