The Secret Power of Silver

Updated on August 10, 2014

Silver - Lunar Energy - Silver Effect

Like the Moon is almost invisible in sunlight, so is silver hidden amongst the golden rays of goldsmith's decorations and always fells onto second place. Silver items were used to maintain health and support internal processes, but not for the prestige and to attract attention.

Contrary to gold, silver is secret metal that brings an aura of internal changes, a metal that slowly and gently helps us and slowly changes us from the background. Different nations were using silver to improve health or to predict life events. For the people in the Caucasus the silver was safeguard against poverty.

How Silver Effects on the Mood

Silver is a metal that conducts energy of the Moon. The Moon is the cosmic body that is closest to Earth and for that reason it has a huge impact on our mood. Silver globe of the Moon provokes movement of cyclones and anti-cyclones, sets our mood and behavior and the ability to control our behavior.

Moon manages our feelings, subconscious and astral body. Silver conducts the power of the Moon and influences our subconscious mind, strengthens the emotions, increases our astral body, awaken intuition and clairvoyance, absorbs accumulated negative emotions, calms nervousness and sensitivity...

People with the impulsive nature, which is difficult to control, may under the influence of silver become even more irritated. Silver reinforces the invisible energy link between people on the physical level, but also between our world and the astral beings.

If we wear silver ring overnight on the little finger, it normalizes the function of the heart, on the middle finger it can call a dream come true, but on the ring finger it can disrupt the normal functioning of the heart and weaken the protective immune system function.

Silver Conducts the Power of Ancestors

Any object made of pure silver connects us with the powers of ancestors. If the lives of parents and other ancestors were fortunate, the silver will be adding success and health, but if the family karma was bad, that metal will only make an additional burden to it.

Silver as a guard of astral world protects against bad mood, misfortunes and informs us about unpleasantness that might undermine our emotional state. They do not speak in vain, that the blackened silver marks the upcoming disaster.

Use of Silver in Medicine

Hippocrates, the ancient Greek physician, also known as the father of scientific medicine, has reported that silver has beneficial effects on wound healing and other medical properties. It is also known that the Phoenicians stored water, wine and vinegar in silver bottles and thereby prevent spoiling. Even in the early 20th century, people put piece of silver in the bottle of milk and that way prolong the freshness of the milk.

Silver ions and silver compounds have shown toxic effect on some bacteria, viruses, fungi and algae. That is a characteristic effect for some heavy metals such as lead or mercury, but silver has shown no toxic effect to humans, what is normally associated with these other metals. Antibacterial effect of silver in vitro destroys many microorganisms. How silver kills microorganisms is not yet known exactly.

Silver is widely used in topical gels and often it's also impregnated into bandages because of its broad spectrum of antimicrobial activity. The main medicinal use of silver is its integration into the wound bandages to treat infections, but it is also used as an antiseptic and disinfectant for medical devices. The use of silver is also promoted in alternative medicine in the form of colloidal silver. Want to read more about colloidal silver, how it works to heal and prevent disease?

      I have just become aware of the antibacterial properties of silver - a friend who is a diabtetic was directed by his doctor to use bandages with silver in them for small wounds, and that's the first I'd heard of such a thing. Fascinating!

      First of all, very nicely done lens! As far as the silver goes, I have a Steelers necklace that I wear during the NFL season a lot. It probably doesn't help a thing but it keeps me in the spirit between games.
