Power Gems and Their Healing Properties
Power Gems and Their Healing Properties
We live in a beautiful vibrational universe and to use the metaphysical properties of gemstones for our personal well being is a very elegant and deeply satisfying way to connect with that beauty. There is great beauty in the natural form our world takes. Nature can be breathtaking and nourishing in many ways: a sunset over the ocean, a mountain landscape, a flower, or a crystal gemstone. Wherever we perceive balance and harmony we experience beauty. No wonder the perfect crystallization, the reflection of color and transmission of light touches our human heart and lifts our soul.
Beauty is deeply fulfilling for humans. Being in nature, looking at a flower, tuning into a gemstone can realign our own energy pattern to a more balanced flow. I believe that a gemstone that attracts your eye with its beauty will always be beneficial for you.
A Universe Swirling with Energy
It is now universally accepted and confirmed by science that we live in a universe made of energy vibrating at different frequencies. Every bit of seemingly solid matter is just a swirling microcosmic world of vibrating, energized particles creating form as we know it. That applies to our body and to the world we live in and therefore to gemstones as well.
When our energetic pattern of our bodies are out of balance and harmony it will manifest in some form of dysfunction in the physical body at some point. When the energy system of the body is in balance we feel joyful and balanced, emotionally as well as physically. There are many different natural approaches to achieve that balance.
I am a lover and expert of natural gemstones and of course I use gemstones and their healing properties as my preferred way of beautifying my way into harmony and want to inspire you to do the same.
The Signature and Metaphysical Properties of Crystal and Gemstones
In all cultures throughout history gemstones and crystals have had a special place. They have been used for empowerment and for focusing energy in rituals, sacred objects, and jewelry.
The perfectly aligned crystal structure of gemstones and crystals gives them their energy and metaphysical properties: they interact with our own energy field and have a balancing and healing impact on our mind, body, and soul. Each gemstone has a personal “signature”—specific metaphysical qualities, different for each stone, that arise from the stone’s chemical composition, color, hardness, crystal structure, and so on.
Astrology, the ancient science of the universal laws, allows us to understand the creative forces at work in our lives and use them to our advantage. Gemstones occupy an important place in astrology. By considering the individual signature of gemstones, we can select the right gems for very specific purposes, according to their astrological representation.
Astrology and True Birthstones
Astrological principles manifest at all levels of creation, from the largest bodies in the cosmos to the tiniest particles of atoms—all are part of the same network of universal energy. Based on the hermetic principle “As above, so below,” those universal principles allow us to read the analogue relations among the planets and extrapolate those principles to things here on Earth, to events in our lives, as well as to our natural environment. The universal principles that govern the planets are also seen on the much smaller level of gemstones, crystals, and metals.
Most of us know the gemstone corresponding to when we were born based on the list created by jewelers. This is a simplified commercial list, not created by astrologers, and therefore most of the stones on this list are not the true astrological birthstones. Sorry to tell you the truth! But there is also good news.
