When we hear about gemstones, the first thought that crosses our mind is of the jewels around our necks or beautiful diamond rings on our fingers. Our idea of gemstones is to show a kind of pedigree and class. However, have you ever imagined that gemstones could be more than just stones you wear on your neck or finger? Did you know that gemstones have a vast amount of therapeutic properties?
Here are seven therapeutic properties of gemstones that you probably never knew about.
Gemstones have a calming and relaxation effect, even cooling down emotions like anger. Examples: amazonite, apatite, aquamarine, aragonite etc. These gemstones are useful in treating mental health issues such as anxiety and depression. Furthermore, gemstones like amethyst are effective in treating neurosis.
Gemstones can aid your mental focus, discernment and wise decision making. They help you ground confusion and see the best of who you are and where best to use your energy. Examples: azurite, charoite, diamond etc.
Gemstones help you find a place of power within yourself and to know where you are as a person. They give you awareness and wisdom. Examples: alexandrite, ruby, diamond etc. Gemstones help get rid of fears and phobias by initiating a believe-in-self attitude.
4. Inner Work
Inner work is about examining habits and patterns. It goes beyond your emotions or wounds. Gemstones help navigate dark waters in your life so that you uncover the deeper story of your life and find purpose. Moreover, they keep you connected to your heart and goodness. Navigating through these dark waters help you uncover the underlying issues that may cause your lack of well-being. Examples: amazonite, apache tears, lapis lazuli, tanzanite etc.
Gemstones can help you become aware of the bounty of the universe (abundance) around you. They encourage you to open your heart to receive and shift your mind focus to the fact that the universe wants you to be happy and succeed. Examples: alexandrite, amber, aventurine, emerald, jade, pearl and peridot. Gemstones create an appetite for passionate pursuits and exhilarating energy to chase after your ambitions. Positive vibes are all you need for quick healing in therapy.
Gemstones have a way of getting rid of all negativity contained in the mind. Life can be overwhelming and negative thoughts begin to creep in. Gemstones bring instant happiness especially when placed close to the heart. Sometimes, doing away with all negativity is enough healing in itself. Gemstones also create positive thoughts towards closure, major life changes and a higher consciousness. If you find yourself feeling anxious, uptight and harboring negativity, consider placing amethyst under your pillow and see the difference in the morning.
Even when used as an ornament, gemstones emanate a feeling of peace. Lack of peace is detrimental to both your physical and mental health. Gemstones wash away fear, anxiety and negativity, leaving peace and tranquility behind. If you struggle with fear and insecurity, gemstones are there to help you find some peace.
Gemstones have countless therapeutic properties that increase positivity and quality of life. Use them as a necklace or other jewel, or under your pillow. The method does not matter as much as their benefits do.
