Golden Topaz – (Solar Plexus Chakra) – (Zodiac of Sagittarius, Leo & Pisces)
Golden Topaz is one of the birthstones for the month of November (Citrine is the other). I have always associated it with my Grandmothers, who were born in November and very fond of Topaz. It emanates a very cozy, familiar energy for me, so I often use it for ancestral honoring rituals. Read on to find out how the healing benefits of Golden Topaz can support you during your everyday life situations!
Science – Topaz is one of the harder gemstones at Mohs hardness 8, so it wears really well in rings because it is durable. It comes in many color (and even clear), but yellow-gold is the most common. Take care when buying blue or pink topaz, because blue is almost always heat-treated and pink is very rare, so is often color treated.
Historical Significance – Today Topaz is primarily mined in Brazil (and found in my home state of Texas), but in the 1800s it was mined heavily in Germany. The name is derived from the Indian word tapas meaning ‘fire’, and from the Arabic word topazos – ‘found’. It has been used throughout history, and all over the world. The royal crown of England is covered in topazes, and many cultures considered it a stone of great wisdom.
Metaphysical Attributes – This gemstone lifts us up as it helps to recharge our physical, mental, emotional and spiritual batteries! It brings shine and sparkle to our everyday life and helps us see the beauty and joy in everything around us. Topaz attracts abundance and inspires generosity.
This stone helps us recognize our own abilities and put them to best use. It encourages drive, confidence, and overcoming barriers to our success. Topaz is a powerful manifestation stone, so we should use it when we are planning life goals and upcoming projects. It will help us have confidence and and solid belief in what we can achieve. This gemstone is very effective during intention and manifestation rituals and visualizations.
This gemstones encourages awakening and inspires us to work toward self-realization. It also helps us connect with the source of our Divinity and use it to follow our Highest Life Path. Topaz helps us develop trust in our Higher Self and our purpose in life.
Physical Effects – Some of the physical healing benefits of Golden Topaz are said to be manifesting good health and physical energy. It is useful when recovering from a long-term illness.
Practice Mantra – Sit in a seated meditation position, holding the Topaz in your less dominant hand to receive its energy. Really feel the support of the cushion or floor beneath you. You are grounded and supported by the Earth’s energies. Imagine a bright yellow flower blooming in the middle of your torso. It radiates warm golden energy all around you. Repeat this mantra, “I am Safe. I am Positive. I am ready to embark on my next Journey.”
Alternately, hold a Topaz mala and chant this mantra 108 times.
