ALL ABOUT GOLD.... Olympic Gold, Gold Fever, Gold Rush and finally Aurum Metalicum (Metalic Gold) - the Homeopathic remedy.
What a year it’s been for gold, despite the fact the UK Government flogged off the “Family silver” back in the late 1990’s. There’s still plenty around with the Olympic and Para Olympic gold medals being won by the score (slight exaggeration). Those very well deserved medals are not small either; they are large, bright, shiny discs, the size of a DVD!
In 2014, I wouldn’t be surprised if the folk around Stirling don’t develop gold fever in their rush for gold. Yes, there’s gold in them hills and perhaps, who knows, it may become a panner’s paradise! I can just imagine the headlines in the Stirling Observer, my local newspaper….
"Stirling Gold rather than Sterling Silver. Gold fever hits town as city dwellers rush to the hills!"

Actually, the gold is to be mined around Tyndrum, which is North West of Stirling. Looks like these young people have already decided to get in on the act!

Dunblane has also been caught up with gold, thanks to Andy Murray. It has an ugly post box that was painted gold over night. I don’t think the Post Office has ever moved so fast to get one of its post boxes painted. It’s a pity they don’t move as fast to get the rest of the post boxes repainted in there fine red and black. It may have been 10 years ago since they were last painted; perhaps it will take them another 10 years to think about it! Let’s hope there are lots of gold medals won in the Commonwealth games all around the UK, that way, there may be a chance that more will be repainted, at least in gold! If that’s the case, the Hampshire couple, who have recently been doing a tour of the golden boxes, will be kept happy for a while longer! Perhaps the Post office won't stop there either, you never know they may do bronze and silver post boxes for the commonwealth games!
As for the Egyptians,
they just couldn’t get enough of the stuff! Some of them even had themselves buried in it, no wooden caskets from the local DIY would suffice for them! Egyptians gold was believed to have a magical potency and believed to contain significant religious properties. Gold did not tarnish nor deteriorate but, more importantly, it shone like the sun god and was therefore referred to as the “Flesh of the Gods”.
In Homeopathy, Aurum Metalicum ( Metalic gold) is a very interesting remedy to study. No remedy produces more acute mental depression than Aurum Met. The love of life, of self protection is perverted. He/she loathes life, is weary of life, longs to die and thus seeks methods to commit suicide. There are several other remedies that correspond to suicidal depression but there is a particular type of person, the character of the individual who requires Aurum Met.
The extreme depression and loathing for life does not occur overnight, and certainly not without earlier stages. For the Homeopathic practitioner, the very best strategy is to prevent the final stage of the Aurum depression, to prevent the possibility of suicide.
The pathological Aurum condition usually arises in people who possess a serious introverted character. They are generally closed people, responsible and quite refined. They can avoid superficial contact and tend to remain rather aloof or self-contained. Generally, they are very disciplined and highly ambitious. They appear to have the fundamental conviction that they are destined for a superior and esteemed position in life. It is their egotistical quality that will cause difficulties for them later on in life.
The idealistic Aurum enters a relationship with the whole of their energy giving themselves entirely. Total idealistic romanticism. The Aurum needs the warmth of affection from a relationship. After a time they will begin to observe the little foibles about their partner, becoming inwardly critical.
Business and financial success are very important to Aurum. They go into business because of a financial dream. Despite being competitive, hard-working businessmen, they retain a level of sensitivity. They are very sensitive about their obligations, so much so, that when faced with serious financial failure, with no way to meet their obligations they will be unable to see anyway out of their predicament. They feel that they must ascend the ladder of success, if not, if they fail, they feel all is finished. The Aurum invests their belief in high ideals, typically wealth, justice and prominence. They become deeply depressed and wish to leave this world if their belief system is shaken. Their depression is very deep that they will be prone to commit suicide, mostly by jumping for a high place.
There is a tremendous fear of having heart disease, reaching states of panic. The mind seems to be obsessed with the idea of being something wrong with the heart. The will not tell anyone about it except a specialist. They also pray a lot, there praying becomes is desperate as their mental state becomes more and more precarious.
Aurum Metalicum is a very big remedy and it can be studied further. I have only focused upon some of the mental/emotional aspects. Further information can be found on the educational Homoeopathic websites.
