NAME ROOT:
ÍON / IóLE áNTHOS > IOLANTHE
NATIVE NAME ROOT:
ÍON (Ίον) IóLE (Ιόλη) áNTHOS (ἄνθος)
MEANING:
This name is of Ancient Greek origin, composed of two elements: “Íon (Ίον) ióle (Ιόλη)” (violet, purple) plus “ánthos (ἄνθος)” (flower, blossom, bloom, peak, brightness, brilliance). In turn the name means “violet, purple flower”. Blessed Yolanda of Poland (1235–1298) was the daughter of King Béla IV of Hungary and Maria Laskarina. She was the sister of Saint Margaret of Hungary and Saint Kinga (Cunegunda). One of her paternal aunts was the great Franciscan saint, Elizabeth of Hungary. The name Jolánka is also used by the writer András Dugonics for the heroine of his 1804 novel "Jólánka Etelkának Leánya". In addition to being based on the name Iolanda it could also come from the word “jóleán” meaning "good girl". Iole which is somehow linked to the name, in Greek mythology was the daughter of Eurytus, king of the city Oechalia.

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.
