AURUM – Salazar

Alexander Salazar

AURUM is the third collection in the IMPACT Series by Alexander Salazar.

This exhibit takes us into the self journey taken In February 2021 during the COVID-19 Pandemic. Driving across to Texas from California, the artist stopped in the desert lands to meditate and reflect on his life’s purpose. His journey would take him to the freezing temperatures in Houston, Texas only to escape to Tulum, Mexico for further reflection. Along the way, he met a healer in Austin, Texas that guided the artist in a meditation that this collection derives from. On his guided meditation, he approached a waterfall of gold, where he stood in silence. SALAZAR calls the AURUM paintings “Self Portraits” created in reflection of his journey for the self – the cracks in each work reflect the emotional pendulum in his life and the gold represents his present self empowered and blessed by the golden waterfall.

These paintings encapsulate the artist spiritual self being protected by the energies and healing powers of Aurum.

Healing with Gold

Gold symbolizes the purity of the spiritual aspect of "All That Is". It is symbolic of spirituality and development in the realm of complete understanding, allowing one to both attain and maintain communion with the source of all being.

Gold has been called "the master healer". It is an excellent mineral for purification of the physical body.

Gold helps one to improve one's character via learning, lessening the trauma associated with situations experienced during the gain of knowledge. It assists one to activate, to mobilize, and to actualize the intrinsic potential of the self.

The energy of gold can be used to balance the energy fields and to assist one in the elimination of ego conflicts and feelings of futility. It can also help to assuage the overburden of responsibility, to combat feelings of depression and inferiority, to allow one to both understand and to dispense with self-reproach, and to cal excitation and states of anger.

Gold has been used in the development, purification, and balancing of the heart chakra and for the amplification of thought-forms. The purity of gold is said to help one to preserve higher thought forms for later retrieval.

Gold has also been used to open and to activate the third-eye and crown chakras. It has been said to attract honors, wealth, and happiness; to provide composure, to stabilize the emotional system, to alleviate tension and stress, and to amplify positive feelings. It also assists one in attuning to nature and its healing forces.

It can clear negativity from the chakras and the energy fields of the physical, emotional, intellectual, and spiritual bodies, while transferring the vitality of any companion mineral to the affected area. Gold produces an energy which is both cooperative and receptive, allowing for extensive use with other gemstones; it is capable of attracting and maintaining those qualities which are inherent within the additional stone. When in proximity to another mineral, gold provides a stabilizing influence to the energies of that mineral.

Gold has been used to enhance mental faculties, to rebuild the nervous system (e.g., in the treatment of multiple sclerosis), to improve digestion, circulation and breathing, and to increase warmth. It can also be used for the treatment of arthritis, skin cancer, blood disorders, pneumonia, vascular diseases, heart disease, eye problems, paralysis, rheumatism, skin disorders, tuberculosis, nightmares, and spinal problems.

Gold assists in the rejuvenation of the endocrine system, in the absorption of vitamins and minerals, and in the regeneration of tissue and the skeletal structure. It balances the right and left brain, and treats conditions associated with autism, dyslexia, epilepsy, and physical coordination.
