To utilize jewelry as a stone prescription for healing, you have to become conscious of the stone’s value to your particular health issue and use it appropriately. For example, for someone undergoing radiation treatment, smoky quartz will detoxify the body after treatment and reduce the severity of burns. In the case of chronic illness, citrine supports perseverance and is especially useful with digestive disorders. Prehnite with epidote supports the kidneys and the adrenal glands radiating peace into a physical body that is overstressed. Consult your physician to determine the nature of your condition. Only after understanding the extent of your illness can you begin to research the stones that will complement and add to the effectiveness of the medical treatments you are, or will, undergo. A good resource for this purpose is Michael Geinger’s, The Healing Crystal First Aid Manual. It identifies specific stones useful for particular conditions. Once you have determined which stones are appropriate for you, decide whether a bracelet, ring, pendant, ankle bracelet, choker, or long necklace is the best option for the condition you are seeking to treat.
In the case of jewelry, prescription dosages are replaced by the amount of time a piece of jewelry is worn to deliver relief, and to recover from trauma, and restore vital life force. If you are receiving a particular treatment such as physical therapy, you may choose to wear a green calcite necklace or bracelet for an hour after your session to reduce pain and increase flexibility. If you are suffering from a migraine headache, you may wear an amethyst necklace for 24 hours or until the pain ceases. Some minerals will work immediately while others will require longer wearing periods to become fully effective. For optimal healing the stone needs to touch the skin, not be enveloped in metal. Pendants and rings that expose the stones to the skin can be utilized for healing. You can use simple gemstone chip necklaces and bracelets to create a crystal healing medicine cabinet for you and your family. If you are utilizing pendants, necklaces, and bracelets that you already possess, speak with the stones in these pieces, asking them to help you heal. Because these pieces of jewelry are designated for healing, you may choose to separate them from your other jewelry.
Your personal jewelry and these simple chip necklaces and bracelets provide stone medicine by transmitting specific electromagnetic impulses from the minerals to the parts of the body, emotions, thoughts and dreams that need healing attention. In healing, these stones will absorb overactive energies, infuse necessary frequencies, and balance the body’s energy field. Wear them at crisis moments, during the night while sleeping or at specific periods of the day when symptoms are at their worst to feel relief. To release toxins from the body wear the bracelets on the right wrist. To send healing energies through the body wear the bracelets on the left wrist. To balance and energize the body wear bracelets on both wrists simultaneously. Some necklaces are best worn around the base of the neck while others work better in longer strands. Some minerals will work immediately, others will require longer wearing periods to become fully effective.
