The Healing Power of Birthstones

It has long been believed that gemstones are not only objects of beauty but also focal points for powerful energies. Gemstones have the power to heal, the power to protect, and the power to amplify certain positive characteristics and ward off negative ones. Though the list of birthstones we know today was only codified in 1912, the practice of associating a particular gemstone with a particular month is centuries old.

It has long been believed that gemstones are not only objects of beauty but also focal points for powerful energies. Gemstones have the power to heal, the power to protect, and the power to amplify certain positive characteristics and ward off negative ones. Though the list of birthstones we know today was only codified in 1912, the practice of associating a particular gemstone with a particular month is centuries old.

One of the oldest precursors to the concept of birthstones is the Navratna, the nine gemstones that correspond to the nine heavenly bodies visible to the naked eye, which are said to regulate its associated body’s cosmic rays. Though not linked with particular months, these gems are each connected to a planet, and each planet rules a different astrological house.

The earliest record of birthstones in Europe comes from the 18th century. Birthstones were probably worn well before that time, as prescribing gemstones as remedies for various physical and mental ailments was a common practice in the Middle Ages. In those days, a person would not only wear their own birthstone but all twelve birthstones in succession, wearing each one during its assigned month.

This practice has its roots in Judaism and Christianity, with the twelve gemstones in the breastplate of the high priest occupying an important place in Jewish mysticism. This concept was then translated to Christianity through the twelve apostles, each of which had an associated gemstone and month of the year.

Gemstones have a long history of use in healing and well-being, and birthstones have long been a part of that tradition in various cultures around the world. Those who wear their birthstone in a piece of jewelry will receive good fortune. Astrologers believe that the light reflected off these gemstones has a unique resonance that is absorbed by the body, providing it with healing energy and counteracting the harmful effects of your birth month’s ruling planet.

Buying yourself a piece of jewelry with your birthstone can benefit you in a number of ways, but birthstone jewelry also makes for a great gift. It connects you to the person receiving the gift in a special way and bestows all of the benefits of their birthstone upon them. Wearing the birthstones of loved ones such as your spouse, parents, or children is also a thoughtful way to show that they are always in your heart or by your side, no matter where they are.

Birthstones connect us to the attributes associated with your birth month and aid in spiritual healing. On top of that, they are each colorful and unique in their own way, making a bold and individual fashion statement.

Each birthstone has its own unique benefits associated with it. Want to know more about your birthstone? Find out here https://synajewels.com/pages/birthstone.
