Gold Golden

The best or most valuable in oneself or in opportunity, or the eternal in your life. Something that stands the ‘acid test’ or does not tarnish with time, in terms of personal qualities, such as love, patience or care in work or something you value or want in your life.

Gold can sometimes indicate riches, as in an increase in money, opportunity or way of life. Or is the real power you are seeking your life – the power to help, to heal, to see.

If cheap or false: Something you valued but does not deserve respect.

If tarnished: Something beautiful and valuable in yourself, perhaps your spirit, that you have let become soiled. See: gold under colours.

Gold crown: If it is on a baby’s head it shows the child has a great soul, and will probably do well in life. I on an adult suggest achievement or wonderful ideas, even great wisdom.

Gold letters in name: It can mean that you see yourself as important, or that your dream is telling you that your future is assured.

Gold teeth: Often relates to words you speak that have wisdom.

Losing gold: Suggests that you are worried about your future, or have lost a great opportunity or a valued relationship.

Mining gold: It often means that you are finding the greatest value through your efforts. One man in reviewing his life’s work dream that ngiht he had found gold. It was the recognition that there were some things of great value in what he had done. Mining also meant that one sometimes had to chip away at the rockface of life to uncover the gold.

What that means is that you have chip away at the difficulties that face you and by doing so you gradually clear them and arrive at the gold. See Life’s Little Secrets

Painting gold: If the body it represent healing old hurts or misunderstanding. Or it can mean changing something into a promise of the good.

Example: I had a dream where the outline of a heart appeared and one half of the heart was ruby crystals and the other half was diamond crystals. Then as I watched, the colour gold outlined the heart again. Then all of a sudden a bright white light burst out of the heart at me. It was so bright it actually woke me up. I had just learnt to do Reiki at the time and had done quite a lot that day, so I’m assuming it had to do with that. Is that the case or can I attach other meanings to this dream as well. I would appreciate your input.

The dream is about initiation, and is certainly bought about by opening to your core self. And by core I mean the drama of how humans long for a connection with life that transcends time, space and death. It is a desire for wholeness. But another way of defining it is that which doesn’t change, what does not shift in human nature, what remains as the foundations of existence. The lovely images of your dream shows the heart, the centre of you, filled with jewels. And jewels mean something that have been formed through ages and are usually dug out of the rocks – and so are very precious. So to have many of them tells you that you have such a treasure in you to uncover and allow to express. The gold outling the hear shows it is a lasting gift that cannot be tarnished.

Example: I was standing on a bridge overlooking railway tracks. Young women dressed in bridal gowns and blindfolds were struggling to climb the steep embankment. People threw the brides gold coins as they got to the top. They thought it was good fun, but I decided it wasn’t worth the risk of injury. I am getting married next month, although I am not a ‘young’ bride – nor a ‘middle aged’ one!

This illustrates the mixed feelings you have about marriage. You fear you may get hurt or disillusioned in the process. The bridge represent the link you are making with your man, and the railway track is the social norm ones life conforms to in some degree – you grow up, get married, have 2.5 kids, retire at 65.

But the gold coins and the scramble show another side to yourself. This is more of an unconscious wisdom you have. You see life has risks, you may get hurt. But the pain and the joy, the struggle and the peace are all parts that together can lead to a whole and mature you. The gold and the roundness of the coins represent this wholeness you might achieve. It says life is not about being safe, but about daring to grow.

Idioms: pot of gold; worth their weight in gold; a golden opportunity; golden age; golden rule; golden years; kill the goose that lays the golden eggs; silence is golden

Useful questions and hints:

What does the gold in your dream represent?

How did you come by the gold; hard work, a gift, by reviewing, or by daring?

Was the gold a promise of a new life, an initiation into something better?

I dreamed that my left hand was embedded with gold in different shapes like starts and my right hand had four rings; two of them were gold made and the other two were white gold or silver, Ibelieve.
Also, there was table in front of me full of jewellry.
Can you help me with this dream, please?

    Linda – The dream always uses symbolical images, representing other than their external material existence.

    So the rings and precious metals represent what you have developed in yourself, qualities that are precious and long lasting, so spiritual qualities and wholeness.

    The table is something before you, some things you could reach out for that would transform your life bringing a wonderful new life. But Dream images are like icons on a computer screen – you have to ‘click’ on your dream images to make them come alive.
    Thinking about them doesn’t work. You need to open yourself to the magic of them.
    To make them into the wonderful gateways they are you may have to learn certain skills such as and .

A keyboard (musical kind) that has a golden sheen? My husband is playing with it though, as he is calmly telling me hurtful words.

    Dear Christa – I have looked at your two dreams as if the part that you describe in “Door” is the first part of this “Gold” dream;
    “What about standing inside of a wooden door frame? I don’t recall a door even being on it. Just an open door frame. I was in the door frame looking into the room where my husband was.”
    You gave me little information to explore your dream.
    What do you think and feel when you stand in the door and when you look at your husband;
    I see the first part of your dream as symbolising your “frame of reference”.
    A frame of reference is a complex set of assumptions and attitudes which we use to filter perceptions to create meaning. The frame can include beliefs, schemas, preferences, values, culture and other ways in which we bias our understanding and judgment.

    In general, wood represents beliefs, ideas, opinions, habits that have become a fixed part of your nature. Just as the tree is originally green and supple but becomes hard and fixed as solid wood, so our opinions and attitudes, as they develop, are first pliable, then often become rigid.
    It would serve a purpose to explore through “reframing” if the meaning you have given – “hurtful words” – is correct.
    “To reframe, step back from what is being said and done and consider the frame, or ‘lens’ through which this reality is being created. Understand the unspoken assumptions, including beliefs and schema that are being used.
    Then consider alternative lenses, effectively saying ‘Let’s look at it another way.’ Challenge the beliefs or other aspects of the frame. Stand in another frame and describe what you see. Change attributes of the frame to reverse meaning. Select and ignore aspects of words, actions and frame to emphasise and downplay various elements.”
