Healing Properties of Metals


GOLD

Gold symbolizes the purity of the spiritual aspect of "All That Is". It is symbolic of spirituality and development in the realm of complete understanding, allowing one to both attain and maintain communion with the source of all being.

Gold has been called "the master healer". It is an excellent mineral for purification of the physical body.

Gold helps to improve one's character via learning, lessening the trauma associated with situations experienced during the gain of knowledge. It assists to activate, mobilize, and to actualize the intrinsic potential of the self. Also to provide composure, stabilise the emotional system, to alleviate tension and stress, and to amplify positive feelings.

The energy of gold can be used to balance the energy fields and to assist in the elimination of ego conflicts and feelings of futility. It can also help to assuage the overburden of responsibility, to combat feelings of depression and inferiority, to allow one to both understand and to dispense with self-reproach, and to cal excitation and states of anger.

Gold helps in the development, purification, and balancing of the heart chakra and for the amplification of thought-forms. The purity of gold can help preserve higher thought forms for later retrieval.

Using Gold for the solar plexus is helpful for self confidence, control over your mind, and feeling more powerful in your body and your life in general.

Gold can also be used to open and to activate the third-eye and crown chakras.

Egyptians used it to attract honor, wealth, happiness and power. It also assists one in attuning to nature and its healing forces. It was used to connect to the divine spirit, said to be "the skin of the gods"; They thought drinking gold could prevent aging because of this. (We do not recommend ingesting gold, considering heavy metal poisoning is dangerous and gold could possibly kill you or cause serious illness.)

It can clear negativity from the chakras and the energy fields of the physical, emotional, intellectual, and spiritual bodies, while transferring the vitality of any companion mineral to the affected area. Gold produces an energy which is both cooperative and receptive, allowing for extensive use with other gemstones; it is capable of attracting and maintaining those qualities which are inherent within the additional stone. When in proximity to another mineral, gold provides a stabilising influence to the energies of that mineral.

Gold has been used to enhance mental faculties, to rebuild the nervous system (eg, in the treatment of multiple sclerosis), to improve digestion, circulation, breathing, and to increase warmth. It can also be used for the treatment of arthritis, skin cancer, blood disorders, pneumonia, vascular diseases, heart disease, eye problems, paralysis, rheumatism, skin disorders, tuberculosis, nightmares, and spinal problems.

Gold assists in the rejuvenation of the endocrine system, in the absorption of vitamins and minerals, and in the regeneration of tissue and the skeletal structure. It balances the right and left brain, and treats conditions associated with autism, dyslexia, epilepsy, and physical coordination.

White Gold combines the sun and moon's energy, and acts as a higher conductor and amplifier of both. White gold is a regenerator, helping you to renew yourself. It has added benefits for the nervous system and helps those with nervous disorders such as anxiety and panic attacks. It can assist in digestion and helps the body in the proper assimilation of food, while also assisting your body's natural methods of elimination in working effectively. It can also help control chemical imbalances. It works well with all crystals and gemstones, and can be used in conjunction with copper and silver. ​

Yellow Gold is ruled by the sun and therefore imparts yang energy to the user, and to the crystals and minerals that are mounted in it.
