gervas

ORIGIN:
germanic  /  brythonic  /  celtic gallic 
NAME ROOT:
*GAIZAZ *GWASS / ISURā > GERVAS > GERVAIS > GERVASIUS
MEANING:
This name derives from Latin “Gervasius”, which in turn derives from the Germanic name “Gervas”, composed of two elements: “*gaizaz” (spear, pike, javelin) and an uncertain second element “-vas” maybe from the Brythonic word “*gwass”, from the Proto-Celtic “*wastos”, meaning “vassal” (manservant). The second element may derive from the Brythonic name of the river “Isurā” (French: Isère), meaning "the impetuous one, the swift one”. This explanation connects the river name with an Indo-European root “is-“, meaning "strong". Saints Gervasius and Protasius are venerated as Christian martyrs, probably of the 2nd Century. They are the patron saints of Milan and of haymakers and are invoked for the discovery of thieves. Their feast day in the Latin Rite of the Catholic Church is on June 19, the day marking the translation of their relics.

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.
