The Mysteries of the Universe
Since the Stone Age gemstones, also known as crystals have been a powerful influence. Throughout time, all civilizations have studied their mysteries. They hold within them the storehouses of evolution and reveal universal truths. They are the very catalyst for electricity, flight, astrological pursuits and highly advanced systems in the ancient Atlantean age. In the Bible, gemstones are referenced hundreds of times. Each gemstone is unique unto itself communicating a vibration or energy to its beholder. They also transmit and provide healing; support, and return vital energy back to the earth. In fact, the crystal or gemstone holds the earth’s DNA.
Gemstones have long been acknowledged as a method of creating greater well-being and a remarkable means of increasing one’s life force or chi. Gemstones are noted to enhance one’s personal life path, augment clarity, enlarge one’s perception, boost personal creativity, and promote compassion. These descriptions are but a few of a gemstone’s properties. Through studying their abilities, please note that a gemstone is a naturally occurring crystalline form of a mineral and were created as the earth was formed.
A crystal or gemstone takes on an outward appearance of its inner qualities. The crystal and semiprecious stones each emits electromagnetic waves and have healing properties. In Feng Shui, each aspect of one’s home is relevant to one’s life path and the quality of your experiences and also hold healing properties. For example, the Career or Journey is located in the front middle section of your home. If you have a cluttered entrance with overgrown or dead flowers around it, you will have stale chi and less than excellent career advancement opportunities. However, if the entrance has curb appeal, is clear and you place an onyx close to the doorway, you are inviting in greater prospects for advancement and fulfillment. The onyx promotes vitality, stamina, and is symbolic of connecting with the Whole of Life. It is a stone that furtively stimulates wise decision-making enabling one to become self-confident. The perfect stone for this area is either the obsidian or onyx. The obsidian provides a shield or protection against all negativity within an environment.
