jeff

SHORT FORM OF:
jeffrey
LANGUAGE FAMILY:
indo-european > germanic > west germanic > german
ORIGIN:
germanic  /  old norse 
NAME ROOT:
*GUDą *FRIþUZ > GODAFRID / GUðIFRIðR
MEANING:
This name derives from the Old High German and Old Norse name “Godafrid and Guðifriðr”, composed of two elements: “*gudą” (god, deity, divine being) plus “*friþuz” (peace, tranquility, friendship). In turn the name means “God's peace, peaceful pledge, God gives me the peace of mind, my friendship with God”. The name was introduced to Britain by the Normans. There are several English spelling variations of the German name "Gottfried". Some are derived directly from the Germanic (the ones that begin with "G") and others are derived from the Anglo-Norman (the ones that begin with "J"), but always from the Germanic root. 1) Geoffroy d'Amiens was a bishop of Amiens. He is a saint in the Catholic Church. 2) Geoffrey V called the Handsome was the Count of Anjou, Touraine, and Maine by inheritance, from 1129 and then Duke of Normandy by conquest from 1144. 3) Gudrid Thorbjarnardóttir (Icelandic: Guðríður Þorbjarnardóttir) also known as Vidforla or “the Far-Traveler” was a Norse woman born around the year 980 in Laugarbrekka, Iceland. She is best known for her appearances in “The Saga of Eirik the Red” and “The Saga of the Greenlanders,” known collectively as the “The Vinland Sagas”.

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.
