The Power of Silver
Silver is one of the 3 base metals in Alchemy and is one of the most precious metals on earth. This metal is associated with emotions and sensitivity. It raises sensitivity and can expand your psychic awareness, it does not judge, and only seeks to bring balance and calm. It is also thought to be a mirror to the soul, helping us to see ourselves as others do.
Silver has a bright and clear appearance and therefore represents qualities such as purity, clarity, and vision. It also symbolises subtle strength. It is very versatile, strong, yet malleable. Silver can withstand abuse, weathering, and even heat.
Silver as a Colour
As a colour, silver is the balance between black and white. It is a glamorous and sophisticated colour. It has a similar energy to the colour grey but is more fun, lively, and playful. It is a shiny, metallic colour symbolic of wealth and riches.
Silver and the Moon
Silver is the metal of the moon and is influenced by the ebb and flow of the tides. It is considered a feminine metal and is also connected to the moon’s feminine energy. It has a soothing and calming effect. With silver’s ability to enhance the powers of the moon, it is known to help energise stones during the full and new moons.
Silver and Crystals
Silver attracts, retains, and amplifies the qualities emitted by gemstones and crystals when used alongside them, such as in jewellery. The connection between the stone and the wearer is also enhanced, which allows for energy to flow between the two. Using silver in tandem with crystals creates a powerful effect. For example, silver will remove and release negativity from the body and space and a crystal, such as Rose Quartz, can fill the void with love and compassion when used alongside it.
Silver and Healing
It is surprising to some to learn that silver is also a powerful healing agent in the realm of medicine. It has antimicrobial and antibacterial properties.
Research has also shown that silver can super-charge your immune system and help you stay healthy.
