Gold Meaning and Healing Properties

Gold is both a mineral and native element with galactic origins! The heavy elements that make up the Earth were formed in the hearts of stars through nuclear fission. The creation of heavier elements like gold (and other metals heavier than iron) are believed to have formed from the collision of two neutron stars. This intense cosmic event preceded the formation of our solar system. Gold reached the Earth about 4 billion years ago, when the Earth was bombarded with meteorites filled with gold and other metals. Over time, some gold became deposited in the Earth's mantle and crust. Gold is transported by magma from deep within the Earth's crust and deposited in cracks, veins, or other rock formations as the magma cools. Gold is named after the Greek word “Aurum” meaning “gold” and has the symbol Au on the periodic table. 


Gold has been adored for thousands of years because of its enchanting color, rarity, resistance to tarnish, soothing energy and its incredible healing powers! It has been adored by all major civilizations in the world to symbolize power, beauty, and success.  Gold is non-toxic and not known to interact with any drugs.  It is believed over 90% of the world’s known gold supply has been mined since the California Gold Rush. Gold is most often used in jewelry; other uses include coinage, government reserves, electronics, medicine, dentistry, computers, awards, pigments, gilding, and optics. The ancient Egyptians are the first known civilization to use gold for healing and in elixirs. They believed gold would rejuvenate, cure, protect the body from diseases and restore youthfulness. Ancient Romans used gold to cure skin problems. The Aztecs believed gold was the “sweat of the sun”. In medieval Europe, gold was used to relieve pain for sore limbs. Gold is edible and has been enjoyed in various cultures across the globe. Since the 1500s, Europeans have been putting gold leaf in bottles of liquor. Some Native American tribes believed consuming gold could allow humans to levitate. Gold is used in Aruyveda to boost immunity, intelligence, memory and concentration. 


Gold is extremely balancing and supportive of the body's energy systems. It helps you remain balanced, focused and energetically supported. Gold is anti-inflammatory and can be used to relieve joint pain. An incredible ally for uplifting your spirits when you are down, Gold is amazing for promoting mental and emotional wellbeing. Gold jewelry is incredible to wear on the skin as it improves the circulatory system and has anti-aging effects. Collodial gold is used in skin care, to improve moods, cognitive function, treatment of disease, tumors, and addiction. Gold has a masculine energy that helps you harness the power of the sun.
