Gold, Frankincense, & Myrrh
We all know and have heard of gold, frankincense, & myrrh as the gifts of the three Magi, but what are the intentions behind gold, frankincense and myrrh?
Gold is always represented with money and 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” and is an ancient symbol of immortality because it never corrodes.
Frankincense serves our Protection and Success Intentions. It’s connected with forgiveness. Myrrh speaks of Emotional Healing.
Together frankincense and myrrh associate us with spiritual growth & thankfulness. Both of these resins were medicinal and spiritual commodities in the Middle East and North Africa as far back as 5000 years ago.
