The Health Benefits Of Wearing Gemstones

In ancient times, it was widely accepted that stones had many healing benefits, but today many researchers have begun to examine the actual effects of stones, chakras, and other alternative healing methods on the body. With studies out of the University of Louisville, George Washington University Medical Center, and the Department of Psychopharmacology in Bangalore, there is now conclusive evidence that links the energy of stones to healing. Here are some of the most powerful stones below and the many benefits and healing effects they have on the body.

Rose QuartzRose Quartz

Rose quartz is an incredibly popular stone found in high-end jewelry stores and back-alley artisan shops alike. This affordable stone is incorporated into jewelry in both its raw and water tumbled state.

One of the reasons for rose quartz’s popularity is the belief that it will bring the wearer love. Not only will it encourage romantic love in a person’s life, but it enhances all other kinds of love including your perception of personal worth and nurturing, familial ties. This light pink stone is supposed to have a gentle, soothing energy, ideal when trying to calm an agitated mind.

Rose quartz, and all other stones associated with love are best worn near the heart. The heart is where the fourth chakra, the energy center associated with love, resides. Wearing it near the fourth chakra will compound its power and make it more effective.

Amethyst

AmethystAmethyst is another commonly seen semi-precious gemstone in it’s raw, cut, and tumbled state. It has a rich history that dates back to the ancient Egyptians, Greeks, and several European societies. The stone was often engraved and worn by those who believed it could prevent intoxication and heal soldiers in battle. Priests also wore amethyst as a symbol of their purity.

Today, amethyst is worn by recovering addicts or those who wish to control their temper and remain level headed. The stone has a tranquil quality that helps anyone suffering from anxiety, insomnia, or stress.

Amethyst is also one of the most common stones found in geodes, a naturally occurring, hollow rock, usually lined with raw semi-precious stones. You can find decorative geodes in many shapes and sizes, from rocks only a few inches long to the largest amethyst geode in the world, which weighs 2.5 tons. If you do procure an amethyst geode or piece of jewelry, be careful to prevent long exposure to light, as the stone is very photosensitive and sunlight will cause it to fade.

CitrineCitrine

Citrine, often mistaken for topaz, is a bright yellow stone that looks best as a faceted gem. When left raw or tumbled, the stone often looks pale and washed out. Citrine is also a stone that will lose its color if improperly treated. If you have citrine, keep it away from heat.

Sometimes citrine can be found naturally growing with amethyst to create a purple and yellow mixture. This rare Bolivian stone is called ametrine.

The effects of citrine are often associated with success and wealth, part of the reason why so many people want to wear the stone. Yet citrine isn’t just associated with material prosperity, it’s also connected to physical strength and emotional stability. Since this stone enhances positive energies, it will amplify anything that a person feels enthusiastic about.

If you have your heart set on acquiring a true citrine stone, beware heat treated citrine. These stones are actually amethyst that have been exposed to heat and have turned yellow. The molecular structure of the stone doesn’t change in any way, it just becomes yellow amethyst. Yellow amethyst has the same healing properties as purple amethyst.

LabradoriteLabradorite

Labradorite is a lesser known stone that’s still popular due to the iridescence common with this mineral. Composed of cobalt, jade, and amber colors, the stone shines like an abalone shell when exposed to light. Due to the stone’s iridescent glow, it is the subject of many Inuit legends involving the Northern Lights.

Because of its association with a certain Inuit legend that claims the labradorite transformed from an ordinary stone to its current extraordinary state due to the light of the Aurora Borealis, many consider this stone one of self discovery and transformation. Labradorites are also usually associated with intuition and mental clarity. It’s a stone that helps with communication and congeniality, suppressing the darker aspects of many personalities.

First found in Labrador, Canada, there are three known types of labradorite: spectrolite, rainbow moonstone (Madagascar Moonstone), and andesine-labradorite. Spectrolite labradorite is usually found in Finland, its spectral play of colors inherent in the name. Rainbow moonstone, from Madagascar, is known for its intense blue color and bronze glow. Andesine-labradorite is an enhanced labradorite stone, created in a lab. Because of its inner glow, labradorite is rarely faceted, instead, it’s usually cut into a smooth cabochon shape.

JadeJade

Jade is a stone that was deeply significant for the ancient Chinese, Mayan, and Aztec cultures. For the Chinese, animals carved out of jade represented happiness (bat), long life (butterfly), prosperity (dragon), and in its most recognizable shape, a disk with a hole in the center, represented heaven. For Aztecs and Mayans, the jade stone was used in religious ceremonies and healing.

Today jade is still associated with healing. According to a study published in the Photonics Lasers Medical Journal, jade emits infrared radiation shown to have significant biological healing effects. The study suggested that infrared radiating fabrics could be used to speed healing and work as performance enhancers. Additionally, powdered jade is also used in many beauty products, including Estee Lauder’s Nephria brand soaps and refinishing treatments.

Black Stones

Black StonesThere are many black stones available in jewelry, from black tourmaline and obsidian to onyx and hematite, these stones are found tumbled and polished, bezel set in rings and necklaces. Whether the stone is volcanic glass, like obsidian, or a space rock found on Mars, like hematite, many of these stones are believed to have the same metaphysical qualities.

While some of these black stones have healing and de-stressing properties, every single one is believed to deflect negative energy. Black stones are known to protect the body and mind from overwhelming stress and overwork.

Wear It or Decorate With It

While many of these stones work best when worn, that’s not a requirement to benefit from their healing properties. Some people like to place them around the house as decoration, while others like to keep little pouches with their favorite stones near their beds or on their desks at work. Many jewelry makers also like to use semi-precious stones for their healing benefits. Explore the options of loose stones and decorative geodes at specialty stores like Stonebridge Imports.

Two Easy Ways to Manifest Money Today!

Kevin Schoeninger

Kevin Schoeninger

There’s a story running rampant on the planet these days.  It goes something like this: “The economy is bad and it’s a struggle to make ends meet.”

Financial experts, politicians, and TV analysts keep this story stoked for their own job security, while many of the rest of us buy in and suffer along.  As a result, you find yourself scratching out a living paycheck to paycheck, feeling desperate about paying the bills and worse and worse about yourself and your future.

At the same time, there are those that are busy making money like never before.  The doors of opportunity seem to be swung wide open for these folks and they’re reaping the rewards.  In this article, we’ll explore three beliefs that will put you in that flow of abundance.

If you’re ready to make the shift to abundance, a good place to start is with your beliefs about money. You’ve probably heard this kind of belief talk before.  The limiting belief often cited is some version of the “money is bad” belief.  If you’re reading this article, I’m assuming you’ve gotten over that one and realized that money is neutral — neither bad nor good.  It is simply a means of exchange.  It’s how you go about this exchange that makes it either “bad” or “good” depending on your values.

It’s this idea of “exchange” that’s most important.  Having money is the result of exchanging some time, energy, skill, or resource that you have to solve a need or want that someone else has.  Money is simply the way we exchange things of value.  We get money when we exchange something we have for something someone else wants or needs.

Now that may seem too obvious to be important.  Yet, it’s really the key to having more money.  You’ve got to find opportunities to exchange something you have for something someone else wants or needs. You’re going to find more of these opportunities if you have three Abundance Beliefs in place:

  1. There are many opportunities out there; you just have to find them.
  2. You have lots of “valuable stuff” that others want and need.
  3. You are entitled to have what you want and need.

Those who struggle with money tend to hold counter beliefs to all three.  They will tend to think that opportunities are scarce; they have little to offer; and they are not entitled to have what they want and need.  When you hold these three Scarcity Beliefs you’re likely to buy the story that “The economy is bad and I’m in for a struggle.”  Those beliefs fit that story like a glove.

So how do you install Abundance Beliefs?

The bottom line is this: you’ve got to practice them until they become your dominant reference point — the way you see the world.  Here are two great ways to do that:

  1. Practice seeing opportunities.
    Opportunities are needs that you can solve with the time, energy, skills, and resources you have or can get.  So, take an inventory of your resources: knowledge and skills you have, things you like to do, time you have to do things, and things you own.  With those in mind, actively be on the lookout for needs you can solve with the resources you have.  Here’s the secret: The more you look for opportunities the more you’ll find them.

Here’s a great way for you to practice seeing opportunities and manifesting more wealth.

  1. Practice taking action.
    When you see a promising opportunity, take some action on it.  Test it out.  Learn more about the opportunity by moving toward it.  Ask the people whose need you observe exactly what they want.  Take some action every day toward the most promising opportunities you discover and soon you’ll have direction and momentum. If you don’t do this, it’s going to cost you a lot more financially and emotionally in the years to come. You’ll continue to stay stuck in the same old story, feeling anxious and desperate about money.  But, your life doesn’t have to be that way!

As you practice seeing opportunities and taking action on them, you’ll grow your belief in the abundance of opportunities, in your own skills and resources, and in your entitlement to be rewarded when you provide something that someone else needs.  As you do that, you’ll find yourself in the flow of abundance.  Enjoy your practice!

You Could Bypass This, But Why?

If you want to rid yourself of waiting for results from your manifesting, you need to read this message. eagle

I did not design the program to which I’m about to introduce. The program is also not designed to ‘take your money and run’. Of equal importance, the program is not being offered by someone who lucked out and gained some monies and now wants to ‘show you how I did it.’

Rather, the program is called ‘Attract Money’ and is one of the subjects available from Natural Hypnosis. It is being offered by a trained and certified individual who currently operates his land-based (brick-and-mortar) practice in California, USA.

I think most of us already know that
(a) To apply the law of attraction so you get what you want, you have to change your thoughts and beliefs and
(b) When we change what we think and believe, then we routinely change the messages we are sending to the law of attraction, and we change our lives.

The problem is: How do we change those beliefs? Attract Money Hypnosis verbally leads you through an approximately 35-minute session that changes your beliefs. To my knowledge, you can’t get this anywhere else!

Others promised you success with whatever made the law of attraction work for them. However, you are unique and need what will work for you. That’s where Natural Hypnosis comes in. A certified professional has designed the program so that your conscious and unconscious minds can automatically select the elements that work with your uniqueness!

Instead of a set of instructions in which you rebel against, your minds will select what you will welcome. Processes, similar to the ones you use to sleep at night will take over and actively assist you. As a result, you reduce conflicts and failure and experience congruence and success. Natural Hypnosis targets your subconscious thoughts, and beliefs.

There is no need to discard any of the programs or materials you may be currently using. After you begin using Natural Hypnosis, you may discover that your other programs and materials also begin to generate results. Now isn’t that a bonanza?

I am familiar with reading about other people’s success stories. After I started using Natural Hypnosis, I can now add my successes to those glowing examples. Just imagine you going to one of your favorite restaurants, enjoying your meal, asking for the check, and discovering that a group of diners at another table paid your check and quietly departed. Alternatively, how would you feel if the receptionist/bookkeeper at your medical office told you the following? “You have over a thousand dollars that did not get used for your wife’s last procedures. How do you want your refund paid?” Those are two examples of my true stories, and I recently started using Natural Hypnosis.

Are you ready to join the group of pleased users so you can begin to see tangible results? For approximately $20 USD, it could very well be the best investment you ever will make!
Go ahead and click this link and change your life with Natural Hypnosis.

Peace and continue to smile!

Natural Hypnosis – Your Path to the Future

Brennan Smith

Brennan Smith Cht.

I have a steadfast, unrelenting objective of getting this item into as many hands as possible. Here is why: It works!

Of the 50 some years since I started pursuing that elusive “key to success,” nothing clearly, simply, nor innately provided an easy and cost-effective solution. That is until now!

It’s called Natural Hypnosis.

When it started working for me, I could not help from thinking of the efforts of Albert Einstein and his discovery of E=MC2. That formula is clean, neat, straight to the point, and boy does it work!

Just like Einstein’s discovery, Natural Hypnosis works with what our bodies already know how to do. Many of the Natural Hypnosis programs available for your use cost less than $20.00. Natural Hypnosis is spearheaded by Brennan Smith, who writes and records all the material.

Brennan Smith is a member of the American Hypnosis Association and is certified by the Hypnotherapist union. He is a full-time hypnotherapist and practices in Beverly Hills, California USA.

So you can gauge for yourself how effective his sessions can be, you can obtain a free, full-session MP3 by leaving your name and address at this URL. The Natural Hypnosis site contains about all the information you will need to answer your questions about hypnosis.

If you desire documentation on the successes of hypnotherapy compared to other forms of treatments, you may head over to Dr. Alfred A. Barrios’ site and read to your heart’s content. While you are on the site, please take note of the title “Self-Programmed Control Center.”

As you probably already know, most of the “paths to riches stuff” available will not work for everyone. You can pay top money for it, get a coach, and, in essence “Wait for Godot.” However, gone are the days when you have to spend a fortune to obtain help from a certified individual. The topics available for your use include, money mindset, law of attraction, sleep and relaxation, addictions, health, productivity, personal development, and more.

Give yourself the privilege to succeed and check out Natural Hypnosis now. I think this could be one of the best gifts you ever gave yourself. It is definitely to your advantage to check it out.

Until next time, I wish you peace!

Effortless Manifesting Series

Kristen Howe

Kristen Howe

Here is another resource you may use to assist you along your prospering way. It consists of a series of interviews and live calls by many of the “Who’s Who” of the Law of Attraction, manifesting, and the general esoteric environment. The program is hosted, and the guest speaker is interviewed by Kristen Howe (of Go Big Coach fame).

People, such as Brennan Smith, Brad Yates, Rishan Bhagowat, Natalie Ledwell, Karl Moore, Jack Canfield, Joe Vitale, and John Assraf are featured in this series. Each segment is recorded and ready for replay to fit your listening schedule.

It is through this series of information that you can greatly expand your knowledge and horizons. Many free offers and paid services are on hand through this series. In February 2012, for example, I purchased a huge download from the library of previous interviews. I continue to use some of the information I gained by listening to those interviews. It is extremely valuable to have them available on my home computer. I can access them at my leisure and choose the ones that satisfy my preference.

You probably already know that what worked for Person A may not work for you. As Henry David Thoreau put it, “If a man loses pace with his companions, perhaps it is because he hears a different drummer. Let him step to the music which he hears, however measured, or far away.” Because of the variety of subjects covered, you may choose what works best for you.

Sign up to receive notifications for these interviews so you too can choose the areas that interest you.

Merely reading through blog posts and promos on these leaders’ websites yields tons of information that may help to clarify your questions and curiosity. For example, one of the featured calls during the week of 25 April 2026 highlighted Carol Tuttle. Her web pages are at chakrahealing.com.

Take several minutes to read all the information about your charkas and which of your aspects they affect. It is this type of information you will have access to by receiving and listening to these interviews.

To get started, head on over to manifesteverythingnow and enter your email address.

Until next time, I wish you peace.
