BENEFITS OF WEARING AN AQUAMARINE NECKLACE
An Aquamarine necklace is an exceptionally versatile therapeutic tool. As we’ve seen, its energy can be infused into drinking water to produce the age-reversing benefits of Aquamarine Water. You can also wear an Aquamarine necklace around your neck and use it in other ways to direct Aquamarine’s energy for specific therapeutic purposes. (please click here for descriptions of five of these special techniques and therapies can be found in “Aquamarine Necklace Therapies.”)
Although wearing an Aquamarine necklace provides some effects similar to those of drinking Aquamarine Water, it also offers additional benefits. These benefits, described below, are multiple and profound. Connecting with the Ocean of Awareness™
Wearing a therapeutic Aquamarine necklace opens your consciousness to your inner ocean of knowledge, wisdom, and creativity. Its energy illuminates the hidden causes of physical and emotional conditions so that you may better master their lessons. Aquamarine’s light blue color deeply relaxes the body and mind and helps you let go of resistance to the truth within. As a source of spiritual nourishment, it imparts youthful energy and brightens your aura as it brings energetic liquidity to all aspects of your being.
Aquamarine developed on Earth, not just as a product of the planet’s evolution but as the result of a grand evolution constantly occurring on all levels of life. Pure Spirit is the fountainhead of the life force. It is also the source of another stream of energy that flows through the inner dimensions to the physical plane. This stream is often referred to as the Healing Waters, the Nectar of the Gods, or the Fountain of Youth. As it flows through the inner worlds, it changes color and consistency. When it reaches the physical plane, it manifests as the gemstone Aquamarine.
Because it exists on every level of reality, Aquamarine is able to heighten your awareness of the truth at all these levels: physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual. It also opens your awareness to the ways in which the realities or truths on these levels can sometimes seem to conflict with one another.
Just having Aquamarine in your aura begins to open your awareness on all levels. To understand how Aquamarine does this, you can compare yourself to a mansion with several floors and many rooms. The floors of the mansion are like your inner levels. Aquamarine works to open more and more doors within this mansion and turn on the lights within its rooms. In this way, Aquamarine increases your awareness of your own inner dimensions. You become more aware of things hiding in the recesses of your emotions, memory, and mind and thus are able to gain insight into who you are and what your true potential is.
As your awareness grows and you gain a greater understanding of yourself, several things will start to happen. Opportunities on all levels of life will present themselves. You will begin to understand life better, and this will allow you to work in greater harmony with your true self and with all of life. Aquamarine works in stages: it will show you only enough about yourself to stimulate your growth to the next level of awareness. At each level, you will be shown a little more. Aquamarine will continue this cycle for as long as you wear it. The amount of truth it can reveal at each stage is limited only by the depth and brilliance of its blue color. Therefore, the deeper and brighter the Aquamarine’s natural color, the more it can give. Accepting Truth
Because it opens the awareness so powerfully, some people feel uncomfortable when they first wear Aquamarine. If you're not quite ready to accept a certain truth about yourself, you may resist what the Aquamarine has helped to reveal, and you may become uncomfortable or cranky. (If this happens, you can regulate how much truth you see by adjusting how often you wear the Aquamarine.) After wearing Aquamarine for some time, you will become more comfortable with your increased awareness, and any resistance will pass. How Aquamarine Works in the Body
When you first wear Aquamarine, it focuses its energy on your physical body. Its focus remains there, sometimes for weeks or months, before expanding to your emotional and karmic aspects. When worn as a necklace, Aquamarine quickly brings energetic liquidity to the healthiest areas of your body. Gradually, this liquidity spreads to less-healthy areas, starting with those of higher vibration and continuing, though more slowly, into areas of increasingly lower vibrations. Similarly, when you place an Aquamarine necklace on a localized area of your body, liquidity will occur first in the healthiest cells in the area and gradually spread from there.
When your body has achieved a certain degree of liquidity, the Aquamarine will begin to work on your body’s energy currents, one at a time. Usually, it works on the energy current that is most directly involved with the area of the body that the Aquamarine is currently highlighting. How Aquamarine Works with Emotions
In the emotional realm, Aquamarine works on the concentrations of energy that pass through your physical body to be expressed and felt as emotions. Sometimes, for various reasons, you may not wish to feel or express a particular emotion. When this happens, the energy of the emotion can build and concentrate in your emotional aspect until you can no longer hold it in. Then the emotion bursts through for expression, often in uncomfortable or inappropriate ways. Aquamarine improves the relationship between your body and emotions and softens any concentrations of pent-up emotional energy. This allows you to express all your emotions more smoothly and comfortably. Thus, Aquamarine is particularly helpful for people who often display strong or uncontrollable outbursts. How Aquamarine Works with the Mind
Your mind, which profoundly influences every aspect of your health, has energetic ties to every part of your being, including your physical body. These ties resemble threads of light. As the stresses of living accumulate, these threads can become darkened with disharmonious energy, causing the threads to tighten their grip on your being in an unhealthy way. When Aquamarine starts working on your physical cells, its light and liquidity touch these threads and begin to infiltrate your mind. This is especially true of Aquamarine in which the color blue dominates. Blue Aquamarine has an affinity with the aspect of your mind that is present in every physical cell, every wave of emotion, and every memory stored in your karmic aspect. Aquamarine restores light to these energetic threads and relaxes their grip. This allows your body, emotions, and karmic aspect to exercise their own intelligence more fully and frees them to focus on restoring and maintaining your health. Aquamarine as a Spiritual Tool
Aquamarine is most beneficial to those who are on a path of awakening. It helps those who want to know more about themselves, their destiny, and their potential. It is especially helpful for those who have reached apparent plateaus in their spiritual unfoldment, for it can awaken them to new vistas and help them grow to ever-higher levels. Soothing Grief and Trauma
Aquamarine can ease any overwhelming physical, mental, or emotional pain, especially the pain of grief. This is, in part, a result of Aquamarine’s brightening of the aura. Because you view the world through your aura, when it is made brighter, your outlook is brightened as well.
Aquamarine’s liquidity effect can also loosen the bonds of traumatic and painful memories. This effect will probably occur only after you’ve worn Aquamarine for several months. Prenatal Awareness Technique
A pregnant woman may wish to place Aquamarine over the uppermost portion of her uterus. This will help her become more aware of and possibly even come into conscious contact with the Soul of her soon-to-be-born child. If she sleeps with the Aquamarine over her uterus, she may even dream of previous lifetimes they have shared. Easing the Transition to Life’s End
It is Aquamarine’s mission to help people evolve and unfold. In the physical world, this sometimes means helping someone complete certain cycles within a physical body. This does not mean that Aquamarine hastens physical death. Yet, when death comes near, Aquamarine can lighten the load, shine the way, and make the experience calmer and less fearful. Therefore, one of the greatest gifts you can give to a dying person is an Aquamarine necklace. It will help ease the transition. DRINKING AQUAMARINE WATER AND
WEARING AN AQUAMARINE NECKLACE:
While both are highly beneficial, the therapeutic effects of drinking Aquamarine Water and wearing an Aquamarine necklace are somewhat different.
The effects of Aquamarine Water are much more focused than those of an Aquamarine necklace worn around the neck. The focus of Aquamarine Water is primarily physical, and it is especially attracted to areas of hardness and rigidity. Aquamarine Water brings liquidity more rapidly, directly, and deeply into your physical cells than wearing a necklace. The energy of an Aquamarine necklace is attracted to a broader range of conditions. It first focuses on your physical and mental aspects; then, after some time, this focus expands to include your emotional and karmic aspects. AQUAMARINE NECKLACE THERAPIES
An Aquamarine necklace can be used in many additional ways for a variety of therapeutic purposes. Here are descriptions of five special therapies and techniques that employ the healing energies of an Aquamarine necklace. For detailed instructions on how to perform these techniques, please see Therapeutic Gemstones: Necklace Therapy Guide, by Michael Katz, unless otherwise noted.
Aquamarine is used to calm the body’s energy flows and relax the entire body. Excess energies that may be causing a headache or insomnia are released. In this technique, an Aquamarine necklace is formed into a small circle and placed first in the left palm and then around the navel.
Pre-Treatment and Pain Relief
An Aquamarine necklace is used to prepare a localized area for another life-giving treatment. This pre-treatment helps the area’s cells release negative energies and become more receptive to positive change. This technique can also be used to temporarily relieve pain in a localized area of the body. In both cases, an Aquamarine necklace is formed into a circle and placed on the ailing area.
Emotional and Karmic Healing Technique
Aquamarine’s healing energies are focused on emotional or karmic issues. After a brief period of contemplation, an Aquamarine necklace is worn around the neck during sleep. Unwanted emotional and karmic energies are released in the sleep state, thereby circumventing the discomfort of experiencing these releases while you are awake.
Discovering the Cause of Illness
An Aquamarine necklace is taped on the body overnight to discover the karmic causes of an illness or other physical condition. Dreams and insights are recorded in the morning and throughout the day.
An Aquamarine necklace is used to open one’s awareness to the inner levels where ideas and inspirations are born. This technique can be used by artists, engineers, designers, physicians, or anyone else who wants help with the creative and problem-solving processes. (For instructions on how to perform this technique, please see Chapter 15, “Aquamarine,” in Gemisphere Luminary, by Michael Katz.)
