SHAY (שַׁי)
The origin of this name is still today quite uncertain. The theories include: 1) From the name “Shyla”, an anglicized form of the Irish name “Síle” plus the popular suffix “leen / lyn / lene”.This name derives from the Ancient Greek element “aokkos (άοκκος)”, via Latin “caecus > caecilius”, meaning “blind, without eyes”, composed of two elements: “a-“ (prefix)”, meaning “without” plus “-okkos”, meaning “eye”. 2) From the Hebrew name “Shay” plus the popular suffix “leen / lyn / lene”. The name “shay”, means “gift, present, gift offered as homage”. 3) From the Irish name “Shay” plus the popular suffix “leen / lyn / lene”. This is an Irish Gaelic name, anglicized form of “Séaghdha”, meaning “stately, majestic, courteous; also learned, scientific, ingenious or hawk-like”, although Séaghdha is exclusively male. Séaghdha derives from the surname “Ó Séaghdha“, the name of a family of Corca Dhuibhne in West Kerry who until about the period of the Anglo-Norman invasion were lords of Ui Rathach, now the barony of Iveragh.

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.
