Gerdt

DIMINUTIVE OF:
gerret, gerhard
LANGUAGE FAMILY:
indo-european > germanic > west germanic > german
ORIGIN:
germanic 
NAME ROOT:
*GAIZAZ *HARDUZ / *HARDU- > GERHARD
MEANING:
This name derives from the Old High German name “Gerhard”, composed of two elements “*gaizaz” (spear, pike, javelin) plus “*harduz / *hardu-” (hard, strong, brave, valiant, powerful). The name means “strong with the spear, strong and brave spear-wearer”. The surname Ge(e)rdes is a patronymic form, "son of Ger(har)d", that originated in Friesland around 1800. The name Gerald, while phonetically similar to Gerard, derives from a slightly different set of constituents: “*gaizaz” and “*waldaʐ” meaning “ruler, might, mighty one, power, powerful one”. 1) Saint Gerardo dei Tintori († 1207) was a saint of the Catholic Church, joint patron saint (with Saint John the Baptist) of Monza in Italy, where he is particularly noted as the founder of a hospital. 2) The Blessed Gerhard Hirschfelder (1907–1942), was born in Gladz, Germany and died in Dachau Concentration camp. Gerhard Hirschfeld was German Catholic priest and martyr, beatified by Pope Benedict XVI in 2010. 3) Gerard Sagredo (980–1046), was an Italian Benedictine monk from Venice, who served in the Kingdom of Hungary.

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.
