Name Root:
(ALFHER) (Áleifr / *AnulaiƀaR) (elaíā / élaion > ŏlīva > ŏlīvārĭus)
The origin of this name is still today quite uncertain. The theories include: 1) From the Germanic “Alfher” (from which Alvaro) or the Old Norse “Áleifr” from the Proto-Norse “*AnulaiƀaR” (from which Olaf). 2) From the Latin “ŏlīva” (olive, a symbol of peace, religious piety, or victory), referring to the fruit or the branch of the olive. 3) A third hypothesis, less accredited, is from the Mycenaean Greek “élaiwon (ἔλαιϝον),” Ancient Greek “élaion (ἔλαιον).” The names “Olaf” and “Oliver” are linked to the Latin root, but related to the Germanic and Norse, from (Alfher) and (Ólæifr). Saint Oliver Plunkett (1629–1681) was the Roman Catholic archbishop of Armagh and chief bishop of all of Ireland, who was the last victim of the papist plot.

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.
