Aurum, gold has fired the imagination of the human mind since ages. Obviously gold is equated with riches and being wealthy. But so many lives have been consumed in gold rushes, prospecting for gold, wars for stealing others gold, fighting with your siblings for the family gold etc.
Gold is the residence of the Goddess of Prosperity, Shri or Laxmi, Bhagwan Vishnu’s wife. So why should it drive the human mind crazy? Gold attracts, in the sense, gold metal has the ability to absorb intention and reflect it back faithfully. This makes it very very attractive for the human mind at the subconscious level. The misers of this world like to keep a hoard of physical gold where they can touch it and feel it.
But for me, gold has a totally different meaning. Gold is a tool in your energy work.
Everyone do this experiment. Most of us own a bit of gold, either a chain around the neck, a bracelet or a ring. Sit on your asan or in a quiet place and hold the gold in your palms. With utmost sincerity say the Srisukta over the gold. (This link is the correct text, the first 16 shlokas are to be recited). Feel the energies of the mantra entering the gold. Feel the presence of Laxmi Herself in the gold. Wear this piece of charged gold jewellery and see the difference in your life. Do this regularly once a week or so depending on your experience.
In case you are facing a money crunch, charge a small gold (or even silver) jewellery with the Shrisukta and keep it in your money box. Shri Laxmi Herself will come into your life. Just remember this is to be done regularly, at least once a week for continued prosperity.
Another thing that you should be very careful of is wearing gold worn by others, Never wear jewellery given to you by your parents or anyone directly. First wash it with charged water, hold it in your cupped hands and recite the Shrisukta on it once before wearing it. As the gold has been worn by someone else it has already taken on the imprint of that person within itself, his sorrows, diseases, regrets all may affect you when you wear it next. In fact, never wear anything used by someone else, may it be your loved grandmother, before cleansing it.
For cleansing or charging
- For gold /silver use Srisukta
- For gemstones use the beej mantra of that planet or Shrisukta as per your wish.
- For clothes you receive from others, first wash the clothes in a water with a pinch of Sea salt. If you cannot wash them, put a pinch of sea salt in a paper packet, intend that it will remove all impressions of the previous owner. Put this packet in on the clothes for 5 mins and then flush the salt down the sink and the paper in the trash.
(If you cannot recite the Shrisukta, then you can recite ‘Om Mahalaxmayai namah’ or recite ‘Om’ over it a few times with focussed intention)
So if you own gold, charge it and wear it for its benefits. Do not just dump it in a locker and think of it as an “investment”. Gold is a living tool in your hands.
And yes there is a reason why we wear so much of gold, silver and copper or other metals on our bodies. Remember what I keep saying about our bodies being electromagnetic and not biochemical? The right side of the body is a bit more positively charged than the left half. The front half is more positively charged compared to the back half of the body. Wearing metals on specific parts of our bodies helps balance the electric currents flowing through our bodies. For example we, in Sanatan Dharm, pierce the earlobes of a 16day old baby, both boys and girls, and immediately put a thin gold wire through them. This point corresponds with the Pineal gland of the body. Doing this activates and ensures proper functioning of this master gland of the body.
And here is something that can inspire the gold-lovers amongst you, if you are well off and can afford buying 100gms of gold, make a chain for your waist. Remember gold is never to be worn below the manipur chakra of the body. It should sit exactly on your navel. This balances all the chakras/energy vortices of your body and generally thieves wont see it even if you go out alone. Wear gold bangles/bracelets in both your hands as we touch a lot of stuff with our hands. These bracelets act gloves protecting the energies of your hand from what ever energies you may be exposed to. Similarly wear silver chains in your ankles. Their energies will act as energy socks and protect.
So buy gold, as an investment if you wish, but do charge and use some of it for balancing your bodies and bringing even more prosperity into your lives.
