wenona

FORM OF:

LANGUAGE FAMILY:
americas indigenous > north americas > algic > algonquian
ORIGIN:
native american (siouan, dakota-lakota) 
NAME ROOT:
WINúŋNA
MEANING:
This feminine given name is an anglicized form derived from the Native American (Siouan, Dakota-Lakota) “Winúŋna”, meaning “firstborn daughter”, term which was assigned as a name to first-born children if they were female. The name was predominantly popular in the 20s, and after thanks to the American actress Winona Ryder. John Koontz suggested that the name was a compound of “wi- (female”) plus “no” (first) plus “-na” (a diminutive suffix) and thus a reflex of the Proto-Siouan numeral “*rǫ/nǫ” (one).

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.
