It banishes and absorbs negativity, gets rid of bad habits and situations and it is used to unblock you in all possible ways. Black provides comfort and protection and represents the outer space, where we all came from. It represents home.
Gold is the colour of confidence and courage. It is symbolic of flexibility on our spiritual path and represents perfection in all matter, on any level. It also symbolises humankind’s quest to perfect, illuminate and refine his/herself. Because of its resistance to heat and acid, gold is a symbol of immutability, eternity and perfection.
