The modern world believes in a lot of superstitions – ghosts, wealth, customs, religions – but gemstones and how to wear them is probably the most superstitious topic people have to face in their lives. Trust us, it’s true! In today’s stressful, time-consuming age, people have kind of moved away from the benefits of gemstones in holistic healing and spiritual understanding, and almost everyone who comes across gemstones almost always thinks that wearing a gemstone will immediately start producing wealth and materialistic benefits. Imagine a man sitting in his house every day, wearing a ruby on his fingers and wishing for a new check to arrive every day. Do you think that will work?
Gemstones were studied as early as the 16th century (and of course, even earlier), and the Arabic text “Book of Royal Gemstones” written by Abu-al Abbas Ahmad comes to mind. The benefits of gemstones have long been studied, and indeed, these prized minerals, when placed in contact with the skin, help to align and unblock the body’s Chakras – which are points in the body which relate to various energies and functions. The relationships between gemstones and the body’s Chakras are being actively studied by the Rudraksha Ratna Science Therapy centre. One can’t create good fate out of nowhere, and hard work can never be replaced. But yes, gemstones can definitely create calm minds, better personalities, better moods, relaxed sleep, more energetic bodies and improve one’s attitude towards life and the Universe. Particular gemstones have particular benefits, and it also depends on a gemstone’s color. For example, green gemstones like the precious Emerald affect the Heart Chakra, and help with better alignment of the planet Mercury to one’s destiny. The heart (Anahata) chakra leads to deeper and more fulfilled compassion and love. A better understanding of how gemstones will help the wearer understand his/her needs and how to solve them better.
