Gem Therapy & Birthstones
The history of gemstones used to energetically affect the wearer is found throughout the world and in every ancient civilization. Whether it was precious gems in a King's crown, scepter and cape or on the breastplates of Priests and Pharaohs, the gems of Mother Earth have long been believed to offer energetic gateways to higher wisdom and power.
Additionally, gemstones have been attributed to each Astrological Sign otherwise known today as Birthstones. Although many people today see giving a birthstone as more of a symbolic gesture, there is also a new renaissance of using gem and crystal energy healing for everyday life.
Integrating Gem Therapy into the home and workplace is becoming commonplace along with alternative healing practices, yoga, meditation, feng shui, sound healing and aromatherapy. There is a distinct integration of light, sound and energy healing techniques making a big comeback from their ancient origins.
People are waking up to their energetic selves and recognizing that these ancient forms of healing are not only effective, but also bringing a new sense of calm, balance and harmony into their lives, despite the chaos that surrounds them.
Gem Therapy – How it Works
Each crystal and gem are a part of Earth. The human body’s electromagnetic frequency vibrates in harmonic coherence with Earth’s electromagnetic field. As a result, natural gems emit energetic frequencies that will help to align and tune each Chakra to its optimal frequency of vibration, creating a positive flow of energy for improved harmony and balance.
We can easily identify which gems are in energetic harmony with the different levels of expression of the human body’s Energetic Immune System simply by matching the gem’s color with that of each Chakra center.
While most women love gemstone jewelry for its beauty and design, little do most realize that wearing natural gems are actually adding positive energetic support to their everyday lives. Some people believe that because women wear more gemstone jewelry throughout their lives, that this may be why women tend to live longer than men.
Elevating your awareness by choosing to integrate natural gemstone jewelry and its battery-like energetic support adds another important aspect to increasing the flow of positive energy into your life.
Once you begin to consciously choose to think, act, speak and behave from a positive energetic perspective, you will be creating an increased flow of positive and harmonic resonance with the world around you and attract even more positive experiences into every area of your life. Like energy attracts like energy.
Whether you have been a great lover of gem jewelry for years, or not, gemstone jewelry can provide a great resource for balancing your energy and your life from the inside out.
