sigfrid

FORM OF:
sigrid
LANGUAGE FAMILY:
indo-european > germanic > west germanic > german
ORIGIN:
germanic  /  old norse 
NAME ROOT:
(*SEʒIZ / SIGIS *FRIþUZ > SIGIFRID) (SIG FRÍÐ > SIGFRÍÐR)
MEANING:
This name derives from the Germanic and Old Norse name “Sigifrid and Sigríðr”, composed of two elements: “*seʒiz / sigis” (victory) plus “*friþuz” (peace, tranquility, friendship). In turn the name means “powerful silence, peaceful victory”. Sigurd (Old Norse: Sigurðr) is a legendary hero of Norse mythology, as well as the central character in the Völsunga saga. The earliest extant representations for his legend come in pictorial form from seven runestones in Sweden and most notably the Ramsund carving (10th century) and the Gök Runestone (11th century). Saint Sigfrid was a Benedictine monk and bishop in Sweden; he converted King Olof Skötkonung in 1008. His feast day is celebrated on February 15.

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.
