You might have heard about some magical powers of minerals and gemstones. If you have not, this blog post might enlighten you in two ways than one. If you own some gemstone jewellery, you probably bought it or were given it by someone for a certain attribute it represents. I will go through some at the end of the post if you are not sure.
I have always associated gemstones and minerals with hippies or tarot reading. Not sure why, but I now realise it probably has other uses too that I will not be focusing on in this post. The truth to be told, I was probably too young to appreciate the real magic and beauty of those. I also probably did not realise I needed any sort of uplifting or could do with an increase of energy.
You might not ever think of OR realised that the power of a nice piece of mineral or gemstone jewellery is very little, in fact, to do with any out-of-this-universe magic. The power is, in fact is in the actual beauty of the stones.
The Real Value and Power of a Mineral
When you put it on, let's say, gemstone necklace, in the morning and see it around your neck in the mirror, it will make you smile and smiling scientifically proved to make you feel a little better. The necklace is beautiful and if you were feeling a little down or not fully awake, it will give you a little nudge or soft touch of happiness. That helps you begin your day with a small but positive lift that would not be there if you decided not to put that necklace.
You wear it out or to work and someone compliments the necklace and the compliment makes you feel good. Every small experience like this gives you a small lift throughout the day without you realising the stone or mineral has any effect. Your attitude is improved so much you can tackle almost impossible and you feel accomplished, the confidence grows because of your daily achievements. All of those together give you energy and improves your day as result.
The effect is accumulative, say another day you look at the necklace and you remember the compliments and how beautiful it looked. It makes you smile again.
Now, you might have trouble choosing the right stone for you. And here is where I think you will find this post valuable (if you are still reading it). I am going to tell you what each mineral represents. You will hopefully give you a guide to buying and wearing minerals in the future.
