We are all attracted to pretty and unusual things, and gemstones certainly fit the bill. There are so many kinds of gemstones that it can be hard to talk about them all, but there are indeed some gemstones which stand out from most. Gemstones have a long and varied history and have actually been used for ages not just because of their innate beauty, but also due to their healing properties. A lot of individuals have already benefitted from the healing properties of gemstones through healing beads, and since you can wear them as necklaces, bracelets, and so on, it’s easy for you to use them every day and benefit from their fantastic healing properties as well. If you would like to know more about gemstones and other materials and what they can do for you, here’s everything you need to know about healing gemstones and other precious materials.
Gemstones are attractive, coming in a diverse range of colors and hues. This is why they have been used for centuries and carved and honed into different shapes so that they can be worn as accessories or serve as decorative elements. Semi-precious gemstones are sourced from underground, and it is essentially a mineral (a crystal) with its own distinct color and hue. But aside from their beauty, gemstones are believed to emit special healing energy and vibration. Each gemstone has its own unique energy and vibration. Experts believe that if you want the full effects of healing and energy from a gemstone, you have to wear it near your chakra – your energy center.
The significance of sacred materials:
There are also certain ‘sacred materials’ which are often used in conjunction with gemstones, so you can get their full effects, such as Rudraksha seeds, sandalwood, and rosewood. In the Hindu religion, they have been used for religious rituals for generations, and they are believed to enhance the practice of meditation and enhance a person’s prosperity and contribute to abundance as well.
Take advantage of the healing properties of Mala beads:
Many individuals agree that gemstones have helped them center themselves and achieve a better life and energy balance. This is especially true for Mala beads, which are beads that are used for meditation and prayer. Mala beads come in different styles, and Malas can come as bracelets with 108 Mala beads, while other combinations include a tassel or a guru. Mala beads can have different variations of beads (different counts), so you can use them for a shorter period of meditation.
Mala beads are handmade and are often a combination of materials like sandalwood, rosewood, and Rudraksha seeds as well as a single gemstone. You can choose the kind of Mala you want as long as it symbolizes your intention and commitment to fulfilling that intention.
Choosing a Mala:
With the seemingly endless variety of Mala beads to choose from, however, it can be difficult for some to choose the one that’s right for them. But the good news is that there is no one ‘set rule’ for selecting the correct Mala – you can choose one based on your preference (the colors and hues you like, for instance, or the shapes you love), or you can also choose one based on your intention. It could also be a combination of each.
When choosing Mala beads, you can also be guided by your intuition. We’ve all had that ‘feeling in our gut’ that something is right or wrong, and once you see the one that’s right for you, you’ll know it. To be more attuned to your intuition, ask yourself which Mala you are first drawn to – this will give you the answer you need. You can also think about which Mala beads you cannot forget and which you absolutely must have – it may be a sign that it’s the best choice.
When it comes to your intention, you need to determine what you want in life, what you are working on (your ultimate goal), and your inner challenges or struggles. With clarity in your intentions and by listening to your intuition, you can definitely choose the Mala that is perfect for you.
