GOLD - Success

Gold symbolizes: wealth, good health, personal power

Verb: I am successful

Gold Energy:
Rejoice. Gold is associated with the Sun which is a symbol of happiness, success, attainment, prosperity and true friends. Obstacles fall away in the light of joy. It brightens all things in its rays adding a sense of optimism and good cheer.

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.

Wearing gold in everyday life increases personal power, and promotes courage, confidence and willpower. Gold chains worn around the neck preserve health.

Lavishness is the perception of gold, and regal are those who wear it. Closely related to yellow, orange, and even brown, gold can be seen as both warm and cold. Associated with wealth and prosperity, gold is the highest prize.

A cousin to yellow (and orange and brown) is gold. While green may be the color of money (U.S. money, that is) gold is the color of riches and extravagance.

Getting the gold medal in the Olympics is monumental, and getting the gold star in kindergarten can have the same effect. Reaching the fiftieth anniversary in a romantic relationship warrants a gift of gold, and wedding bands are typically cast in gold. Gold is also what financially backs money, at least here in the United States, which is funny, considering green symbolises money. The pieces of paper are exchanged as sort of I-Owe-Yous for gold. Gold stands for praise, excellence, and wealth, and an excess of any can always present the possibility of suddenly turning for the worst.

With blue, gold becomes a symbol of credibility and financial dependability. With green or brown, gold becomes a bit more down to earth. And with red, gold becomes a great deal more lavish and rich.

The color gold shares many of the attributes of yellow. It is a warm color that can be both bright and cheerful as well as somber and traditional.

Be a dynamic, inspiring and influential leader whose light shines for all to see. Show the world who you are and what you have done. Express yourself so that everyone you encounter can feel your warmth.
