The source of all energy, the force of life, in our solar system is the Sun. No matter that we would give plants water and necessary nutrients, without the Sun’s energy they will soon die. Most life as we know it cannot live without the energy of the Sun. In India and surrounding countries of Burma, Tibet, etc. this life force is called "prana". The Chinese call it "chi" and the Japanese refer to it as "ki". Regardless of the name it is the sustaining force of biological life.|
For one capable of seeing the energy force that emanates from the body, waves of energy are seen in various colors. This is called the "aura", and advances such as Kirlian photography have made it possible for anyone to view this force without possessing advanced psychic capabilities. It has been clearly shown that poor diet, lack of exercise, and emotional anxiety sap our life force biologically. When this biological energy becomes low our immune systems are weakened and disease invades the body. This energy does not last eternally within our bodies for we all are susceptible to illness at times, and certainly none can escape eventual death.
At the time of death the life force leaves the body and the body itself dies and begins to decay. In youth we are loath to consider such facts, but as we age we realize that some conservation of energy and increased care of our physical selves becomes more necessary.
In the east Ayurvedic doctors and practitioners of Oriental medicine make an evaluation of the level of the prana, chi, or life force within the body before proceeding to diagnosis of particular diseased conditions. Different methods of stimulating the energy levels are called for, be it changes in diet, taking herbs, oils, massage, or accupuncture, but the most powerful medicines are made from precious gems. In India these preparations are called "bhasmas" (medicines made from burning the gems to ash) or "pisthis" (medicines made from crushed gems such as pearls or coral. Gem tinctures are also produced by therapists both in the U.S. and abroad.
Cosmic energy is stored in gems
Gems contain wavelengths of cosmic color, just as the Sun’s rays contain pure life force. The gems must be untreated by man, except for cutting and polishing to have any effect whatsoever. That the majority of gems we find in jewelry stores are heat-treated, irradiated, etc. is mostly unknown to the public. Treated gemstones have lost their ability to infuse "pranic" energy to the wearer. Therefore in gem therapy we take special care and efforts to obtain gems that have not been treated to improve their physical appearance. Such gems are super concentrated storehouses of cosmic energies at different frequencies and wavelengths depending on the gem used.
The light of the Sun is made of seven visible bands of color, and two that are invisible, each of which has a different frequency. We can view the visible colors of the spectrum in a rainbow. Ultraviolet and infrared rays are the invisible bands. Lower frequency infrared rays pass through the body when we are next to a heater or fire. They speed up the activity of electrons in the cells and make us feel warm. Cold weather slows down our vibrational rate and we must burn extra calories to stay warm
A wonderful example of the potency of gems is the ruby laser used in hospitals. It is so hot that it cuts through almost any substance known to man. Other gems also influence cellular behavior, as do the infrared rays of fire. Different gems emanate different cosmic colors that affect living organisms in different ways.
Cosmic Colors of Gemstones
Gems emit different frequencies of color that are not necessarily the colors we perceive with our naked eyes. With the aid of a prism this phenomenon is easily seen. The ruby does emit the red cosmic ray, and the emerald does emit the green cosmic ray, but the other gems emit a cosmic color different from what we would think from their appearance.
Pearls emit the orange band of wavelength. Red coral emits a yellow cosmic ray. Yellow sapphire actually emits a blue cosmic ray (akin to the color of the sky). Diamond emits an indigo blue cosmic ray, and blue sapphire emits the violet band of the color spectrum. The cosmic rays of hessonite and chrysoberyl cats-eye cannot be seen, but hessonite emits the coldest ray of ultraviolet, and chrysoberyl cats-eye emits the infrared cosmic wavelength. All together these gems together are storehouses of the 7 visible and 2 invisible bands, which together comprise what we see as white light.
Different gems have separate properties
Rubies are "hot" gems (note the use in lasers as mentioned) so we use them to treat illnesses coming from cold or damp. In India and Tibet especially doctors treat anemia, low blood pressure, lack of energy, or constipation with ruby. Such diseases are "cold" and employing ruby will raise the body temperature, increase metabolic rate, circulation and muscle tone. Ruby is very helpful for those with weight problems, or just heavy body types that have slow biological functions. It is used to treat low blood pressure, irregular heartbeat or palpitations, paralysis, and general debility. The energy of a ruby is hot, drying, energizing, and expanding.
Pearls are cooling and thus used to treat diseases arising from too much heat. It can be used for high blood pressure, asthma, flu, pneumonia, tonsillitis, bronchitis, or chickenpox. It is also effective against high acidity or conjunctivitis, as well as treating emotional fears, bad dreams, excessive anger, or hysteria. The pearl’s energy is anti-allergenic, moist, and harmonizing.
Red Coral is warming and used to treat colic, gall stones, hemorrhoids, warts, and liver problems such as jaundice and hepatitis. It is enlivening and cleansing for the body.
Emerald is often used to treat burns, colitis, cystitis, diarrhea, heartburn, eczema, gastritis, inflammation, stomach ulcers, and even anorexia. Its energy is cold, analgesic, unifying, and solidifying. It is to be used against disease caused by an excess of heat in the body.
Yellow Sapphire with its blue rays may be used for swollen glands, mumps, ulcers in the mouth, abscess, coughs, goitre, pancreas disorders, and obesity. Its energy is cool, soft, satisfying, and antiseptic. This stone is also helpful in bolstering the body’s immune system if worn on the body as a ring or necklace.
Diamond is prescribed for sterility, as well as problems related to menopause. It can be used effectively in treating diabetes, epilepsy, and depression. It is an antidepressant and antiseptic and its energy is invigorating, stimulating and clarifying.
Blue Sapphire is effective for pain such as backache, joint pain and headaches. It has shown good results in treating earache, gout, inflammations, dandruff, eczema, psoriasis, alopecia, laryngitis, neuralgia, lumbago, vertigo, and symptoms of Parkinson’s disease, as well as many other maladies. The energy of this gemstone is cool, soothing, sedative, tranquilizing, analgesic, and antispasmodic.
