Healing stones, crystals and semi-precious gemstones come from one unified source – Mother Earth. Created from the magma or Earth’s inner core, healing stones have gone through a geologic process of heating, cooling and displacement on their way to their present form.
The energy field of different gemstones is influenced by geometrical form, color and subtle vibration. Each stone is made up of minute crystals which are in constant motion thus emitting an energy signature or frequency. The gemstone’s color also plays a dynamic role in the stone’s healing energy. The play of light and color can stimulate or calm; purify or heal.
A magical and symbiotic connection has always existed between human beings and gems. Evidence of gemstones used for healing has been found as far back as the fourth millennium before Christ. Ancient civilizations such as the Chinese, Egyptians, Sumerians, Greeks, Romans, or Shamans and Medicine Men have used gemstones for healing in multiple ways – made into powders or elixirs, worn, carried or placed on the body and in ceremonies or rituals. This ancient knowledge has been passed down to our day and with the emerging popularity of holistic health and healing the use of gemstones is again making its way into modern life.
Also evident in human history is our connection to Angels. These heavenly messengers, in particular the Archangels, have the powerful ability to help each of us simultaneously while offering their protection and guidance to bring about peace on earth. Each of the 15 Archangels resonates with a special gemstone. Working with a particular Archangel’s gemstone can help you strengthen your divine connection and relationship with that Archangel.
Crystals are part of the earth itself and of nature. They are comprised of quartz and silica, which are also a major component of the human body. Like color, crystals also emit a vibrational frequency, which matches the electromagnetic field of both the earth and its human occupants. The most widely used crystal today is clear quartz and it can be found powering watches, computers and radios to name a few. Within the light catchers and jewelry the sympathetic resonance of quartz is used for its healing properties and to amplify the energy of the other stones.
All Feng Shui Bagua Light Catchers have a Swarovski faceted prism to disperse and deflect negative chi. The main purpose of faceted crystal balls in Feng Shui is to transmute energy. When hard (negative) energy enters the ball, the facets deflect the energy, breaking it up and turning it into gentle (positive) energy. Faceted crystals can be hung in windows to shift any hard chi entering your home into positive energy. They can also be used in hallways or corridors to slow down fast-moving chi, or to reduce the bad energy transmitted by “poison arrows” such as those from sharp corners.
Gemstones come in multiple forms and colors. Their different colors resonate with the body’s energy system and although their energetic effect is more diffuse than crystals, they are extremely useful for harmonizing an environment or wearing on your person as jewelry. As with color and crystals, gemstones also provide a symbolic and energetic connection to nature.
Rainbows symbolize an arc of energy with the divine. Each light catcher contains a Swarovski prism made of refined lead crystal, which refracts the sunlight into the seven colors of the rainbow which also correlates to the seven traditional colors of the chakras.
