harald

LANGUAGE FAMILY:
indo-european > germanic > west germanic > german
ORIGIN:
germanic 
NAME ROOT:
*HARJAZ *WALDAʐ > HEREWEALD
MEANING:
This name means “leader of an army, heroic leader”. The name derives from the Ancient Germanic name “Hariwald”, composed of two elements: “*harjaz” (army, army leader, commander, warrior) plus “*waldaʐ” (ruler, might, mighty one, power, powerful one). Later Old English (Anglo-Saxon) version is "Hereweald". Harold I was King of England from 1035 to 1040. He was the younger son of Cnut the Great, king of England, Denmark, and Norway by his first wife, Ælfgifu of Northampton. Saint Harold was a child martyr who was reported to have been slain by Jews in Gloucester, England, in 1168. He is one of a small group of 12th century English saints of strikingly similar characteristics: they were all young boys, all mysteriously found dead and all hailed as martyrs to alleged anti-Christian practices among Jews.

Chakra Number:
8: The number of the Chakra "Etheric Body"

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.
