more about gold

Gold shares many of the attributes of yellow. It is a warm color that can be both bright and cheerful, suggesting great warmth as well as ripe harvest and the good life -- while all that glitters is not gold, the color gold still suggests grandeur and riches -- but it can also be somber, traditional and distancing.
Associated with good health, in her bestselling book The Complete Book of Color, color therapist Suzy Chiazzari's says:

"Gold is an overall healing connects to the light of the higher spirit, restructuring the spiritual layers of the aura, protecting and charging the energy field with prana (life force)."

As the color of the third (solar plexus) chakra -- located midway between the naval and the heart -- golden yellow symbolizes the personality or "ego." This chakra is the body's center of 'life giving vitality' and it is from here that one's emotional energy radiates. Golden yellow then represents one's personal power -- the ease with which one can be 'in his/her skin' -- one's ability to exhibit strength, self-confidence and self-worth, to respect themselves and others.
About those who appreciate golden shades, Chiazzari goes on to say:

"Like yellow, gold is associated with the sun and is therefore related to abundance and power, higher ideals, wisdom, and understanding. It is mentally revitalizing, energizing, and inspiring, and helpful for fear, uncertainty, and lack of interest. Pale gold is excellent for depression and sharpens the mind."
