Spiritual Healing Through Gemstone Bracelets And Other Crystal Jewelry
When you think about it, everything in the universe carries energy and certain frequencies. How our brain perceives those two components dictate our reality. Healing with crystals and gemstone products such as bracelets, necklaces, and rings allow our mind and body to tune in to and adapt the energy and frequency of the crystals — the same works for sound healing therapy and brainwave entrainment through Isochronic tones.
Why Use Gemstone Bracelets As Opposed To Rough Or Tumbled Healing Crystals?
This area is a bit more personal for me. I’ve been working with metaphysical healing for over ten years now. As an empath, I am very sensitive to crystalline energies among many others (good and bad). For these reasons, when I really delved into the word of healing crystals and energy work, I aspired to find and collect all my favorite stones.
When I first started creating gemstones bracelets, it was really for myself. I used to carry fabric sachets filled with crystals.
These sachets filled all of my pockets and really weighed me down. I mean, I felt grounded and energized and at one with the world, myself, and my environment — but, my pants started drooping and driving for too long felt uncomfortable.
I loved the energy and needed as much of it as possible, so I started looking for different ways to incorporate and wear them.
When I started making my gemstone bracelets I wanted to include all my favorite crystals, ones that resonated well with my energy, goals, and my astrological sign.
I sat and created 30 different bracelet designs before I realized I might be onto something.
What motivated me to start making them for others was wearing my crystal bracelets out in public and getting noticed. People loved the design of my bracelets, thought they were unique and liked the fact that they were functional (made with real gemstones).
Everything stemmed from a place of love.
Healing Benefits Of Gemstone Bracelets
Metaphysical healing is about using the ‘unseen’ to treat what is noticeable in the real world. Metaphysics is not backed by science, but it is logical and has worked for countless individuals, including myself and loved ones. The great thing about metaphysical healing is that it works on a multi-dimensional level; it helps with spiritual healing, physical healing, and mental/emotional healing.
There are many resources and tools that help with metaphysical healing like aromatherapy, sound healing therapy, herbs, yoga and exercise, and of course, healing crystals.
When it comes to gemstone bracelets, you get all the healing benefits of working with crystals without having to carry a bunch of stones. If you do and want to continue doing that, there’s nothing wrong with it, but now you’ll have fashionable pieces that have direct contact with your skin.
For me, working with crystals have always been more productive when they are directly touching my skin. Somehow, my energy can attune more efficiently this way. It also helps to have other stones in your environment. Having more crystals in your home, car, or workspace will not only help raise your vibrations, but it will further enhance and empower your gemstone bracelets.
Healing crystals like those in the large Quartz family, Malachite, Herkimer Diamond, Phenacite, and quite a few others will amplify the effects of other crystals they are near.
Cleansing & Charging Your Gemstone Bracelets
Just like most other crystals, your gemstone bracelets need to be cleansed and charged regularly. It’s a necessary upkeep to keep the flow of energy positive. Just like you, most crystals will absorb and store energy (both good and bad energy). Aside from Kyanites and Citrine, most crystals should be cleansed at least once a month.
Ways To Cleanse & Charge Gemstone Bracelets
Crystals hold the energetic charge of anyone and anything they’ve ever come in contact with. They need to be cleaned, not to mention, the more you spend time respecting your crystals and cleansing them, the more useful they will be to you. They will gradually become more in tune with your energy and serve you better for it. The most important thing to remember is to keep your focus and intention clear: you are doing this ritual to cleanse the crystal’s energetic charge so that you can charge it yourself.
- Burning Sage, Incense or Epsom Salt (also known as Smudging)
- Placing Under The Moon or Sun
- Placing In Water
- Burying Them In The Ground and letting the vibrations of the Earth charge and cleanse them. Make sure they are wrapped good or stored inside a glass container (not plastic).
- Placing Near or On Other Crystals like Selenite, Smokey or Rutilated Quartz, etc.
Please be careful and do your due diligence as some crystals cannot be held in direct heat/sunlight or water and can become ruined or release harmful gases if the stone is highly-toxic.
Some crystals will receive a better charge in sunlight, and some will gain a better charge in the moonlight and some water. Study and learn the natural energy patterns of each stone and their origins.
- Was your stone found in the Ocean near Africa? Perhaps water is the best resource for cleansing it.
- Was it formed inside a volcano? The Heat, sunlight, or even smoke from smudging should be more efficient.
Gemstone Bracelet Meditation/Visualization
Another thing to keep in mind is meditation/visualization. Remember, everything has energy and carries a frequency, which includes your thoughts and intention. Keep these clear and focused when cleansing and charging your gemstone bracelets. Don’t worry about the morning traffic, a bad day at work, an overwhelming ex, or anything that’s not positive or related to raising your vibrations and clearing negativity.
I like to visualize a bright white light entering my mind from space. I imagine this white light traveled across the universe to help me in my time of need. Once this light enters my mind, it begins growing and expanding inside of me, clearing out all the dark/bad energy. For me, this looks like my body is a cup and I’m pouring a white liquid into it, pushing out the dark energy as it overflows. This white light is then passed to everything in my surroundings, including my crystals and gemstone bracelets.
Your visualization doesn’t have to be precisely that, but find something that works for you and is logical.
Gemstone Bracelets: Making It A Lifestyle
Not everyone is interested in the healing benefits of crystals. Some people like the aesthetic properties of a gemstone bracelet or couldn’t care about the difference from a real gemstone bracelet versus plastic, and that’s fine.
For those who might want both or have the goal of improving their life and self, when you’re looking for gemstone bracelets, focus on the energy you get from it. How does it make you feel? Sometimes you won’t even need to pick it up and can feel the vibrations from simply looking at it.
Also, start recognizing what you are naturally drawn to. When you go into a crystal shop or browsing online, what crystals are you drawn to first? More often than not, these are the stones your soul secretly needs.
If you feel anxious, when leaving without something because of price, go back and get it. I’ve been at shops in the past where my body temperature went up, I started sweating and felt sick to my stomach because I put something back that my body, mind, and soul were not going to let me leave without. Your subconscious knows what it needs. Trust it.
Start making crystal healing a lifestyle and embrace different approaches. Salt lamps and sage are excellent for clearing the negativity in a space and charging it with intention. The more you start making it a lifestyle, the more you will reap from it.
I’m interested to hear your thoughts. Have you worked with gemstone bracelets in the past? Is there anything I might have missed?
