An alternative, medicinal form of healing, gem therapy balances an individual's physical and emotional well-being. The human body consists of energy emitted as electromagnetic fields around the body. Going as far back as the Vedic period of India, many people believed the energy radiated in seven different layers, or together as an aura.
Each layer of the aura is attributed to a region in our bodies. These layers have colours which coincide with the seven chakras in charge of physical and emotional balance. When there's an excess or deficiency in one or more, there's an imbalance in the body, giving rise to sicknesses.
This is where gem therapy comes into play; each chakra houses a vibrational frequency that can be amplified or worked on with the help of a gemstone.
It's vital to choose the right gemstone that corresponds with the chakra you wish to tap into, or else it could lead to instability. A lot of gems tend to react differently to different people. Bright colours in one’s aura indicate good health, whereas dull colours may warn of an impending illness or negative energies.
