How well is the association between the Deity and Gold Ornaments?
ASSOCIATION BETWEEN GOLD AND GOD
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 one to improve one's character via learning, lessening the trauma associated with situations experienced during the gain of knowledge. It assists one to activate, to mobilize, and to actualize the intrinsic potential of the self.
The energy of gold can be used to balance the energy fields and to assist one 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 call excitation and states of anger.
Gold has been used in the development, purification, and balancing of the heart chakra and for the amplification of thought-forms. The purity of gold is said to help one to preserve higher thought forms for later retrieval.
Gold has also been used to open and to activate the third-eye and crown chakras. It has been said to attract honours, wealth, and happiness; to provide composure, to stabilise the emotional system, to alleviate tension and stress, and to amplify positive feelings. It also assists one in attuning to nature and its healing forces.
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 stabilizing influence to the energies of that mineral.
Gold has been used to enhance mental faculties, to rebuild the nervous system (ex. in the treatment of multiple sclerosis), to improve digestion, circulation and 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.
Value of Gold throughout Human History
Tangible wealth has always been based upon the possession of gold and silver. Throughout recorded history, gold and silver have been actual wealth, as opposed to currencies made of various destructible objects such as tobacco, whales teeth, cattle, sea shells, etc., but mostly paper. For all civilizations, gold and silver have been associated with wealth, stability and power. In biblical times, gold’s primary purpose was (and still should be) storage for wealth and value, and silver’s purpose was (and still should be) used for daily trade.
Gold is Still Valuable Today
In today’s economic system, physical gold and silver are mostly irrelevant. Not one currency uses a gold standard to restrain its government’s fiscal irresponsibility or monetary stability.
As a protection from the possible collapse of fiat (paper) money, as a potential hedge against inflation and as part of a portfolio diversification, one should consider the two primary reasons for buying real gold or silver or other precious metals:
- Coins or bars of these metals have a durable, tangible and intrinsic value as a financial instrument. Although they do not bear any interest, the asset value of each coin does not correspond to an obligation of another party which may be defaulted.
- Precious metal coins are private and anonymous. Note: In the U.S., if purchased with cash, money orders, cashier’s checks or travelers’ check and a purchase of at least $10,000 is made, the coin dealer must report the transaction to the government.
Italy’s financial crisis is an example of what happens when governments expand without restraint or fiscal prudence. A definite, financial destructive trend has developed in which fiat economies continue to rob the wealth of those not protected with a solid treasure of gold or silver.
Significance of Gold and Deity
Gold and silver are products of God – they are not a creation of man. God designed them to be intrinsically valuable and beautiful, for gold does not tarnish nor corrode. It can be hammered so thin that a single ounce can spread over a 100 sq. ft. area. Silver is the best conductor of heat and electricity. It reflects light better than any other metal and when fully refined it looks like a mirror.
Gold was used as money not only in Jewish culture but throughout all cultures. Regardless of man’s location on earth, gold and silver are both accessible and valued as wealth. A believer could easily make the conclusion that God placed gold and silver strategically throughout the world. By doing this all nations throughout history have enjoyed the utility of gold and silver as money.
In the last century, the world has removed gold from its monetary role. By ignoring the use of gold and silver as money, central banks have created large economic imbalances. Every day currencies fluctuate in value, because of manipulative monetary policies. When central banks expand their balance sheets, artificial wealth is created. Monetary inflation and low interest rates enrich the wealthy, while the poor are robbed of their labor and savings.
The Role of Gold in Hinduism
One of the oldest religions in the world, Hinduism regards gold as a pure metal symbolizing knowledge, learning, meditation, and mental development.
The role of gold in Hindu traditions and religious practices is based on scientific reasons, too. For example, gold is believed to have a positive impact on the wearer’s energy and aura. The gold wire of the Mangalsutra is believed to keep the negative vibrations away.
Goddess Lakshmi, the Hindu goddess of prosperity, is shown dropping gold coins on the ground from her lower left hand. These gold coins represent spiritual and material prosperity. The four elephants pouring water from golden vessels on the goddess represent fortifying the chain of endeavour, duty, purpose, desire and salvation with wisdom, purity and charity. The god of justice – Yama- is depicted holding a mirror of fire and a set of golden scales for measuring the deceased’s spirit upon entering the after-world.
