NAME ROOT:
LAURUS
MEANING:
This name means “Laurel, from the place of laurel trees, laurel branch, laurel wreath”. The Laurel tree was sacred to the God Apollo and is a symbol of wisdom and glory. The name Laura and its variants are derived from the “bay laurel plant”, which in the Greco-Roman era was used as a symbol of victory, honor or fame. In British North America, it is very likely that the name Laura was extremely popular for female newborns until its rapid decline starting in the late 19th century. The name Laura was among the top 40 names for female newborns for much of the late 19th century in the United States until it dropped off the chart in 1899 at #43. Saint Laura of Cordoba (Spanish: “Santa Laura de Córdoba”) (died 864), was a Spanish Christian who lived in Muslim Spain during the 9th century. The Blessed Laura Vicuña (1891–1904) is a Chilean holy figure canonized as blessed by the Roman Catholic Church. She is the patron of abuse victims. Saints Florus and Laurus are venerated as Christian martyrs of the 2nd century. According to a Greek tale, they were twin brothers who worked as stonemasons.

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.
