HANDMADE GEMSTONE JEWELRY By Tracy
When your aura is cleaner, you can see yourself more clearly: who you are, what your strengths and shortcomings are, and in what direction your life is headed. Once these things are better known, you can choose to enhance your positive attributes, work on your shortcomings, or more clearly define your life's direction. Your custom made jewelry will reflect and heal the vibrations of your needs, dreams, intentions, and dis-ease.
Since Ancient Times, every culture with a sensitivity to higher consciousness and life force has recognized that stones from the earth posess unique subtle energy. Only recently has human consciousness risen to the point where they are ready to accept the powers that gemstones unleash.
Crystals are the Earth's DNA, a chemical imprint for evolution. They are miniature storehouses, containing the records of the development of the Earth over millions of years, and bearing the indelible memory of the powerful forces that shaped it. Some have been subjected to enormous pressure, others grew in chambers deep underground, some were laid down in layers, others dripped into being- all of which affects their properties and the way they function. Whatever form they take, their crystalline structure can absorb, conserve, focus and emit energy, especially on the electromagnetic waveband.
At the heart of a crystal is the atom and its component parts. An atom is dynamic, consisting of particles rotating around a center in constant motion. So, although a crystal may look outwardly serene, it is actually a seething molecular mass vibrating at a certain frequency. This is what gives a crystal its energy. Wearing Crystals or simply having one in close proximity, can boost your energy (Orange Carnelian), clean your space (Amber), and attract wealth (Citrine). Enhance intuition (Apophyllite) increase mental abilities (Green Tourmaline), and boost confidence (Hematite). Thank you Judy Hall (Author of Crystal Bible)
