Gemstones are the life force of the mineral kingdom. They are said to be storehouses of cosmic energy radiated to earth from the cosmos and the other planets in our solar system F95zone. In a way they are a connection between the Earth and the other heavenly bodies. In Ayurveda and Vedic Astrology it is taught that gems will harness specific energies that will have the power to enhance the overall quality of a person’s life.
White light is divided into the seven rays of visible color (as seen in the rainbow), as well as two rays that are invisible, infrared and ultraviolet. In Ayurveda the proper balance of these rays in the body is an inherent part of both physical and emotional health. Whenever there is a lack of any of these cosmic rays within the body, disease begins to manifest.
These cosmic rays are stored in great abundance within natural gemstones and can never be depleted, even after years of use in gem therapy. Actually, the color we see a gem to be is not necessarily the cosmic color that it radiates. A simple experiment of viewing a gem through a prism will reveal the actual cosmic color. Ruby is actually red and emerald green, but diamond radiates an indigo color, blue sapphire a violet color, pearl an orange color and many others actually transmit colors now seen to the naked eye. When used in healing practice the gems will release the concentrated colors to the physical and ethereal body.
Ayurveda and Vedic astrology speak of using specific applications of gems for amplifying cosmic rays. A dynamic effect on one’s physical and emotional health and wellbeing is brought about when gems are correctly prescribed and utilized. Nine specific gems are used that transmit the nine specific light rays of visible and invisible color. These gems’ healing qualities have been written about in Ayurveda for thousands of years. Following are the cosmic colors transmitted by these gems and just a few of the myriad benefits of each to improving and maintaining health.
Gems are most effectively used in specially formulated “gem therapy” lamps and the most advanced usages also utilize an electronic medical instrument that imposes an additional vibration upon the light as it passes through the gemstone and is beamed on the body.
Leading resort spas are using these instruments and lamps for calming and energizing, as well as for increasing elasticity of skin. Specific spa treatments have been developed and now used in conjunction with massage, facials and other popular spa treatments. At a recent Resort and Medical Spa exhibition one such instrument made by Balaji Gem Instruments, called the “Navaratna Gem Lamps” attracted crowds as they were giving complementary treatments to spa owners and attendees to show how effective this therapy is.
A prominent publisher of a European spa magazine proclaimed his belief that “this kind of gem therapy is the medicine of the future”. Not only are natural health practitioners such as naturopaths, Ayurvedic practitioners, chiropractors and doctors of oriental medicine adding this therapy to their practice, but a few progressive allopathic physicians and surgeons as well, we feel that his comment could well be quite prophetic.
Just as ancient Ayurvedic healing is being embraced by numerous other practitioners of different health care systems, this amazing method of healing and revitalization is certain to become an important part of medicine and healing worldwide.
