Gifts of the Magi… but what are the Intentions behind gold, frankincense and myrrh?
Gold is always represented with money/riches. Wisdom is also connected with gold as is self-empowerment and willpower. Au is the chemical symbol of gold from the latin word aurum, meaning “shinning dawn” & is an ancient symbol of immortality because it never corrodes.
Myrrh speaks of Emotional Healing.
Together frankincense & myrrh associates us with spiritual growth & thankfulness. Both of these resins were medicinal & spiritual hot commodities in the Middle East & North Africa as far back as 5000 years ago.
