Benefits of Wearing a Therapeutic Aquamarine Necklace
Aquamarine opens your consciousness to your inner ocean of knowledge, wisdom, and creativity. Its energy illuminates the hidden causes of physical, emotional, and mental 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 any 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 planes, it changes color and consistency. When it reaches the physical plane, it manifests as the gemstone Aquamarine.
Because Aquamarine exists on every level of reality, it is able to heighten your awareness of the truth on 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.
Simply having Aquamarine in your aura will begin to open your awareness on all levels. To understand how Aquamarine does this, you can compare yourself to a mansion with several floors. 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. When you wear a necklace of therapeutic Aquamarine, you become more aware of things hiding in the recesses of your emotions, memory, and mind and thus 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 also 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 new level, you will be shown a little more. Aquamarine will continue this cycle for as long as you wear it. The amount of truth Aquamarine 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.
Because Aquamarine opens the awareness so powerfully, some people feel uncomfortable when they first wear it. If you are 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 the Aquamarine’s intensity of work by adjusting how often you wear it. 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, its energy focuses on your physical body and quickly brings energetic liquidity to the healthiest areas of your physical form. When an area becomes energetically liquid, it is more fluid, adaptable, and open to the free flow of life energy. 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. 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 being highlighted by the Aquamarine. The Aquamarine’s focus remains on your physical body, sometimes for weeks or months, before expanding to your emotional and causal aspects.
How Aquamarine Works with Emotions
In your emotional body, Aquamarine works on the concentrations of emotional energy that are eventually passed through the chakras to the physical body to be expressed and felt as emotions. Sometimes, for a variety of 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 body 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 physical and emotional bodies 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 experience 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 energetic 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 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 causal body. Aquamarine restores light to these energetic threads and relaxes their grip. This allows your physical, emotional, and causal bodies to exercise their own intelligence more fully and to better focus on restoring and maintaining your health.
Aquamarine as a Spiritual Tool
Aquamarine is most beneficial to those who are on a path of spiritual 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 help 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 have worn Aquamarine for several months.
Prenatal Awareness Technique
A pregnant woman may place Aquamarine over the uppermost portion of her uterus to help her become more aware of and possibly even come into conscious contact with 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.
Aquamarine Rounded Chips vs. Spheres
The most effective and economical way to use therapeutic Aquamarine is in the form of rounded chips rather than spheres. Quality and mass being equal, Aquamarine rounded chips and spheres radiate energies of equal intensity, but chips project their energy more actively and initiate change more forcefully. The effect of Aquamarine chips is similar to that of rough ocean waves pounding a cliff: the waves gradually wear the cliff away. In comparison, Aquamarine spheres act like gentle rain; eventually the rain erodes the rock but not nearly as quickly as the rough waves do.
Therapeutic Quality Aquamarine
The characteristics of therapeutic Aquamarine vary more than those of most other gemstones. Even the finest Aquamarine necklaces vary in mass, clarity, hue, and depth of color.
Aquamarine naturally occurs in a wide range of color from green to blue, and nearly all Aquamarine is a mixture of both colors. All characteristics being equal, the green aspect focuses primarily on the physical body, while the blue aspect works on both the physical and subtle bodies. The more that blue dominates in the blue-green mix, the more the Aquamarine will focus on the mind. Because the mind has such a powerful influence on the body, the deeper the blue of the Aquamarine, the more effective the Aquamarine will be. Aquamarine color also ranges in intensity from deep and rich to colorless. The depth of Aquamarine’s color determines how deeply its energy can penetrate and affect the aura and body.
Aquamarine clarity spans a continuum from opaque to flawless, with all degrees of cloudiness and flaws in between. Opaque and even moderately cloudy Aquamarine are not therapeutic. Slightly cloudy Aquamarine can be therapeutic if it displays a radiant brightness and good color. Although slightly cloudy Aquamarine takes much longer to produce effects than clear Aquamarine, it may be preferable for people who need a more moderate pace of change. The energy of clear or nearly flawless Aquamarine moves rapidly into the aura and body, where it quickly begins to open awareness and reveal truths.
Each therapeutic Aquamarine necklace should have a consistent degree of clarity throughout the necklace and a uniform, clearly definable color. It might seem that by stringing together blue, blue-green, and green Aquamarine, one could enjoy the benefits of all three. On the contrary, such a combination would confuse the body. Each shade of Aquamarine color has a particular energetic character, or personality. The more uniform the color and clarity of an Aquamarine necklace, the more clearly defined its personality and the more focused and strong its therapeutic effects will be.
Aquamarine's color is often enhanced through heat or dye. Although heat treatment does not inhibit Aquamarine’s energy, it also doesn’t strengthen it. Despite its improved appearance, the heated Aquamarine will continue to project its original, probably rather low quality of energy.
Dye, on the other hand, renders Aquamarine therapeutically useless. Low-quality Aquamarine chips, in particular, are often dyed blue. The dye artificially deepens the gemstones’ color but blocks the Aquamarine from radiating any healing energy into the aura and body.
Irradiation of Aquamarine results in the death of the crystal. It destroys the life energy of the gemstone and replaces it with an extremely disharmonious energy. If irradiated Aquamarine is worn, this disharmony will be projected into the aura. The destructive emanations of irradiated Aquamarine will first affect the mind, disrupting mental processes, distorting one's view of reality, and gradually wreaking havoc on the mind's harmony. Eventually, irradiated Aquamarine will distort the emotions as well.
Through the use of a special technique, drinking water can be infused with the vitalizing energy of an Aquamarine necklace. The resulting Aquamarine Water helps reverse the aging process and treats any ailment associated with hardening, crystallization, or inflammation.
Modern physics teaches us that atomic particles switch constantly between states of matter and energy. When the atomic particles that comprise your body are in an energy state, your body is able to accept and use more life energy. This energy nourishes and invigorates your cells, allowing your body to maintain, evolve, and repair itself. Yet, as the body ages, its atoms naturally spend more and more time in the matter state. In the matter state, cells gradually deteriorate and age. Therefore, one secret to restoring a youthful body is keeping your atoms in an energy state more often than a matter state.
Drinking Aquamarine Water encourages your atoms, and thus your cells, to enter and remain in the energy state. In this state, a cell more easily perceives its “blueprint,” or energetic picture of its ideal condition. As a result, the cells permeated by Aquamarine Water naturally let go of the elements that contribute to aging and poor health. The Aquamarine energy also rejuvenates these cells as it dissolves the harmful crystals associated with hardening and inflammation. As the water in your body is gradually replaced with Aquamarine Water, Aquamarine’s energy revitalizes and renews your entire body.
Therapies and Procedures
This technique uses Aquamarine energy to calm the body's energy flows and relax the entire body. An Aquamarine necklace is formed into a small circle and placed first in the left palm and then around the navel.
This therapy prepares a localized area for another life-giving treatment by helping the area's cells release negative energies and become more receptive to positive change. This therapy 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.
This technique focuses Aquamarine's healing energies on the emotional or karmic issues of one's choice. 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.
An Aquamarine necklace is placed 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.
