helena

LANGUAGE FAMILY:
indo-european > hellenic > greek
ORIGIN:
greek 
NAME ROOT:
HELENē > HELéNē
NATIVE NAME ROOT:
HELENē (‘Ελενη) / HELéNē (Ἑλένη)
MEANING:
This name derives from the Ancient Greek: “Helenē (‘Ελενη) / Helénē (Ἑλένη)”, meaning “torch, flambeau, brilliant, shining light, the bright one”. The name may be connected to “hēlios (ἥλιος)”, the personification of the Sun in Greek mythology. In Greek mythology, Helen of Troy was the daughter of Zeus and wife of Menelaus, King of Sparta and considered to be the most beautiful woman in the world. The name was widely used by early Christians due to Saint Helena, the mother of the emperor Constantine I, who according to legend found a piece of the cross on which Jesus Christ was crucified when she traveled to Jerusalem. Hermione was the only child of King Menelaus of Sparta and his wife, Helen of Troy.

9
Numerological Values:
9

A number 9 person is humane and selfless. Compassion, tolerance, idealism and sensitivity are the hallmarks of number 9. Number 9 individuals often give unselfishly to others.

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.
