The healing aspects of wearing jewelry with healing stones
Since ages, man has held a profound belief in the healing powers of gemstones and crystals. Almost all cultures, be it the ancient Greeks, Egyptians, Romans, Mayans, Indian or Chinese, have believed in the magical and therapeutic properties of these stones and used them in healing, ritualistic and sacramental ceremonies. For thousands of years, the wise and knowledgeable physicians have been combining medicinal herbs with minerals and gemstones to cure their patients of diverse illnesses.
It is believed that the human body is composed of the elements of fire, water, air and earth, and contains a combination of minerals & chemicals that are found in nature. It is important that a balance be maintained between these elements and minerals in order to have a healthy mind and body. The healing stones come from deep inside the Mother Earth and as such, are considered to be a rich storehouse of curative properties. The gemstones and crystals are made of minute particles that move constantly and emit an energy frequency. These stones have been observed to store, generate, receive and regulate electromagnetic energy & light.
About 60% of the human body is water. Placing healing stones over it sends electromagnetic waves that carry a healing current through this water in the body. This activates and restores the inner natural self-healing mechanism that had been weakened in an ailing body. This holistic healing effect harmonizes the mind and body, the spirit and emotions. It neutralizes the negativity in the body and helps the patient become an integrated being. The color of the stones also plays an important role as the play of light and color has either calming or stimulating effects.
Wearing jewelry with healing stones is considered the simplest, most effective and non-invasive way of using the healing powers of these stones. In fact, it is believed that the precious metals in which the stones are set enhance the stones’ effects. All the gemstones/crystals carry different wavelengths and so, are considered suitable for treating different diseases. Putting on a jewelry piece that contains the healing stone that resonates with your particular physical or emotional condition helps alleviate the condition. For instance, Amber is considered helpful in curing depression, calming the nerves, relieving pain and promoting a happy feeling. Agate is seen to encourage longevity, prosperity, happiness & emotional healing, and has also been found to be effective in treating headaches and body aches. Amethyst promotes inner peace and mental clarity and soothes the nervous system. Citrine enhances optimism, creativity, emotional awareness & personal power, and also stimulates material abundance. Thus, there are a lot of gemstones and crystals that are worn on the body for balancing and rejuvenating the energy system in the body.
Jewelry with healing stones is a very popular method of alternative healing all over the world. Though the method has its share of skeptics, it has a large number of followers who swear by the healing powers of these stones. Wearing them in the shape of pendants, rings, earrings, bracelets, necklaces, etc. is found to be a convenient as well as attractive way of maintaining physical, emotional and spiritual well-being, and even achieving financial prosperity.
