Gem Therapy
Let's accept that gemstones are no ordinary stones. For there are schools which admit that few of these gems have more vital force than we humans have. Gems are more refined in bringing out the results than crystals. Crystals are present in their crude form in nature. But out of these crystals only few can be converted into gemstones. While crystals have a weaker relationship with us owing to the distance and gaps in our proximity with them . They are only able to help balance the energies in their surroundings. But gemstones, by virtue of their remaining in direct interaction with our physical body all the time, keep balancing our aura even when they are totally inauspicious to us. And one more thing, gemstones not only introduce their vibrations to our systems but they also change and alleviate our vibrations to get attuned to that of theirs.

Now we shall see what role gemstones play in keeping our vitals in function. As we all know every soul is inflicted with certain karmic obstacles and the malefic push and pull of the various planetary bodies. These obstacles impede the natural spin factor of the chakra vortices. But gemstones, by introducing their vibrations to the various levels of the chakra vibrations, cut through these impediments and let the soul realize the goals for which it has taken birth.

But for the gemstones to administer their suitable frequencies, they should be prescribed by an expert. Just like it is dangerous to treat a patient without the scrutiny of a certified medical practitioner, the gemstones if administered wrongly can cause more harm than benefit.

Now we shall reiterate few observations made during our discussion on vastu, pyramids and astrology. Every human being comes into the physical world with certain karmic imprints on his soul. This karmic imprint he inherits from his performance in his previous births. We have already discussed the feasibility of rebirth in the light of many instances cited. Basically the chakra of the human yoni starts with the Muladhara. It is the kind of gateway between the human energy level and that of the animals. Hence, many of the saints opine that once a soul packet reaches the level of the Muladhara chakra it enters the human domain. But then a new journey begins. As we keep performing good karmas the energy level keeps rising and the kundalini rises to the higher chakras as mentioned before. Now after the death of the specific human being the soul packet remains in its resting abode for a certain period after which it starts preparing for taking another birth. Now the kind of birth and the quality of life the soul body is going to lead in the forthcoming birth is mainly decided by the energy level which the soul body retains after leaving the physical sheath. Hence whatever good or bad karma we perform in a birth, reaps its benefit in the next or subsequent janmas.

Hence, depending upon the energy level in the chakra system, a soul body takes birth in the physical realm. And the position of the planets inscribes a permanent imprint on the soul body. Moreover, the rhythm of every planet gets registered in the soul body which keeps affecting the course of life. There are seven planets and two cloud planets-Rahu and Ketu-along with 27 Nakshatras which keep affecting the course of our life as per their position during the time of our birth.

Clearly then, whatever we experience throughout the course of our life is heavily influenced by the rhythmic motion of these planets.

The seven chakras are associated with the seven planets and 27 Nakshatras, so that whenever these planets have any specific pull or push on our soul bodies the chakras start acting adversely or beneficially. Hence the cosmic rays which act as a bridge between the chakras and the planets are either wane or wax according to the phases that the trajectory of our lives go through.

This trajectory and the phases in which different planets behave differently can be properly sorted out in the form of Janma Kundali (horoscope). In fact, as I said earlier, the phrase Janma Kundalis derived from Kundalini, which gives the reflection of our Kundalini energy in various chakras.

Each gemstone vibrates on a specific frequency level. When a specific chakra starts slowing down due to the waning of cosmic rays reaching it, form a specific planet, this frequency has to be replenished with the external agent in the form of tools and in the form of internal catalysts like mantra and mudras of kriya yoga.

For me gemstones are one of the most efficacious therapies as they remain nearest to the charkas, in direct touch with the physical body. Hence to me it appears that gemstones are one of the best agents to bring back harmony between our karmic factors and the planetary effects along with our aspirations and energy level.

The use of gemstones and crystals for psychic as well as decorative purposes is now widespread.
Do these gemstones have any astrological significance, and if so, how does one work out which stones to use for best effect?

As a general rule, the best benefits can be obtained by wearing or using the stones represented by the strongest or most favorably aspect planets in your natal chart. It is, after all, those planets which tend to indicate the characteristics that we are most 'at home with' within ourselves. A common mistake is for someone to wear or to use a stone associated with a quality they wish to possess or enhance, but which is not naturally assimilated by them. Rather than the gemstone being able to endow us with some mystical quality which we lack, it is far better to view them as tools to enhance the abilities we already possess - and thereby making us in a stronger position to seek within ourselves for the qualities we wish to develop.

The following list will be of use in selecting which stones may work well for you as an individual. When the term well-aspect is used, I mean a planet which is strong by exaltation, ruler ship, house position and/or in favorable aspect to the 'benefices' i.e. Venus or Jupiter. If you do not know which are the strongest planets in your chart, any astrologer should be able to tell you quickly and simply.

When the SUN is well aspect:
Amber, fluorite and chrysolite are recommended. Amber (actually a fossilized resin, rather than a 'gem') certainly conveys a sunny color, but is also helpful in creating balance in life and in making space for spiritual aims as well as materialistic ones. It absorbs negativity, and has a general harmonizing influence. Physically, it is said to benefit the conditions of stress, asthma and urinary problems.

Fluorite is another powerful healer, which has specific applications in the well-being of teeth, gums and bones. Chrysolite is reputed to be powerful in healing viral illness, toxemia and appendix problems

When the MOON is well aspect:
Moonstone, quartz (especially milky quartz), emerald and carnelian are recommended. The Moonstone is well known as a soothing influence on troubled emotions, as well as an aid to intuition and the understanding of dreams. Milky quartz absorbs excess mental and emotional energy and has a general calming influence.

Emerald was used in ancient times to cure eye disorders, but is also said to enhance one's courage and self-esteem. Carnelian is perhaps best known for increasing fluency both of speech and of ideas - this stone is of especial benefit to anyone in the public eye.

When MERCURY is well aspect:
Agate is recommended. This stone is said to attract loyalty and to cushion the user from harmful vibrations. The agate stones have a very earthy, grounding influence, which can be invaluable to the Mercurial personality. They also promote both truth and strength.

When VENUS is well aspect:
Opal, Lapis Lazuli, Coral and Green Jasper are recommended. Physically, the Opal is said to increase the assimilation of protein into the body and to be helpful to the lungs. The Opal is an important stone and also represents unconditional love such as that of a parent to a child. It is important that this stone is not worn by anyone with an afflicted (difficultly aspected) Venus.

Lapis Lazuli is often known as the third eye stone, reputed to help inner vision and enhance psychic abilities. This stone is also found to be helpful in decision making. Coral (not technically a gemstone) is primarily known for strengthening the spleen, whilst it's other main physical attribute is to aid the treatment of the voice and throat. Green Jasper is a
stabilising stone which calms ad steadies the emotions. It is also said to be a remedy for ulcers.

When MARS is well aspect:
Bloodstone(Green Jasper), Smoky Quartz and Diamond are recommended. Diamond is a stone of Mars-like strength and courage, said to give clarity of ambition and the determination to resist setbacks. Diamond also, however, has the capacity to magnify negative thoughts and vibrations, and should be used with care. The Bloodstone is said to purify the blood, and is a useful stone to wear next to the body if the wearer is suffering physical trauma.

Smoky Quartz is a powerful healing crystal and a grounder of excess energy. It is also traditionally said to increase fertility in both sexes. In days gone by it was given to soldiers as a good luck token, as it is also believed to protect the wearer or carrier from danger.

When JUPITER is well aspect:
Topaz is recommended. This stone is said to calm the mind and to bring refreshing sleep. Kidney and bladder complaints and the treatment of varicose veins are also associated with this stone.

When SATURN is well aspect:
Onyx and Malachite are recommended. Onyx, especially black onyx is said to help overcome hearing problems and to promote concentration and self-control. Malachite, with its high copper content, is said to be beneficial against menstrual cramps and rheumatism.

When URANUS is well aspect:
Zircon and Garnet are recommended. Tourmaline is also sometimes associated with Uranus due to its highly electrical properties.

Zircon has physical applications in the aiding of childbirth and the treatment of insomnia. It is also said to aid spiritual insight. The Garnet's main uses are in the treatment of blood disorders, however this popular stone is also said to forewarn it's wearer of impending danger by losing some of its color. Energy, beauty and new opportunities are also said to await its wearer.

When NEPTUNE is well aspect:
Amethyst and Aquamarine are recommended. The Amethyst is a marvelous and beautiful stone, widely used for meditation and healing applications. It is said to increase intuition and to promote psychic development. It is also very helpful in relieving sleeplessness and headaches. Aquamarine prevents water-retention and is said to be a good aid to the eyesight.

When PLUTO is well aspect:
Beryl is the 'original' crystal in as much as it is probably this stone that was used by the ancients for scribing. It stimulates deep seated psychic abilities and clairvoyance, and is also said to increase the will power. The elimination of things that have served their purpose is said to be encouraged by this stone.
