wulf

LANGUAGE FAMILY:
indo-european > germanic > west germanic > german
ORIGIN:
germanic  /  old norse 
NAME ROOT:
*-WULFAZ > úLFR
MEANING:
This name derives from the Old Norse name “úlfr”, from the Ancient Germanic element “*-wulfaz”, meaning “wolf”. Wulf and Wolf was one of the most prolific elements in early Germanic and Nordic names. It could figure as the first element in dithematic names, as in Wulfstan, but especially as second element, in the form “-ulf, / -olf”. The numerous names ending in -wulf, -ulf, -olf gave rise to hypocorisms (pet) from an early time, which were later also treated as given names in their own right. The wolf is a very important figure in Germanic and Norse paganism more than a thousand years.

Chakra Number:
8: The number of the Chakra "Etheric Body"

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.
