Gemstone Decoding

What is Gemstone Decoding?

Gemstone and crystal therapy is most aptly described as a holistic and non-invasive therapy that involves wearing, or being around precious and semi-precious stones to improve physical, spiritual, and emotional health.

When one chooses specific gemstones/crystals it creates a whole story about the person picking the stones. 

The gemstone/crystal mapping highlights both issues you are currently dealing with and past issues or traumas that you may be aware of or unaware of that are still affecting you. These issues may be affecting your emotional, physical, mental, or spiritual state.  

Using specific gemstones/crystals that are handpicked for you, based on your map will help you realign yourself better and target what you may need on a physical, spiritual, or emotional level.

How do gemstones and crystals work with a person?

We all are made up of energy, and our energy body is constantly vibrating at a certain frequency. Our bodies have different energy centers, some centers are connected to our spirituality and our emotions while other centers are connected to our physical bodies. 

When all of our energy centers function at their optimum state, our frequencies are high. However, when any of our energy centers are not in alignment, which can occur from a mild ailment to a huge burden that one is carrying, such as grief or sadness, our energy vibrates at a much lower frequency.  

Gemstones/crystals are mostly found in the earth’s crust. The formation of each crystal is different, but the molecules always form in a structured way, they don’t have the “ups and downs” of life like the human has, and therefore are emitting the same frequencies consistently energetically.  

When wearing gemstones as jewelry, holding them in our hand, or placing stones near us, such as on a desk where we are doing work, our body’s frequency and the gemstone’s frequency meet each other. Our bodies respond to the frequency that the gemstone or crystal emits. When using a gemstone that connects to a specific energy center helps balance and clears up that center. 

Gemstone/crystal mapping is a great way to understand what is going on inside our bodies where we sometimes may not even know how to express what’s going on in our lives or how we feel. This tool is especially great to use with young children since not many know how to express themselves well. Mapping a child may help parents who want to better understand their children. It is a non-invasive way to get to the root of the issue and help our children function better and improve their overall well-being.  

People could have many issues; emotional, physical, spiritual, etc. Having a gemstone/crystal map is very helpful in giving us insight of the root of the symptoms that are manifesting. We have different energy centers and through a gemstone/crystal map, we get to see which part of ourselves we’re in touch with, which not. Each energy center represents a different part of yourself. Each gemstone/crystal is connected to one of the energy centers.  

The gemstones/crystals have their own frequency which causes your body to correct its frequencies, by matching the frequency it’s receiving from the gemstone/crystal. 

For example, there could be 10 stones that can help one that is having trouble sleeping, however, the stones can have specific properties to them that can help identify if the cause of insomnia is stemming from anxiety, or perhaps a lack of a certain vitamin or mineral in the body.  

Once a map is done for you, it can help get down to the nitty-gritty, and identify which crystals can help with your symptoms. 

How do I know which of my energy centers could use the positive frequencies of the gemstone?

What is the difference between a gemstone and a crystal?

Gems are beautiful stones that are used in making jewelry. They can be precious stones such as diamonds, emeralds, ruby & sapphire, or other semi-precious stones. Crystals are pure substances that have molecules arranged in a regular geometric pattern. A gem can be a crystal whereas a crystal will not always be a gem. An example of a crystal that is not a gem is salt, because it is a symmetrical solid substance made entirely of the same material.

Is gem therapy a Jewish concept?

There are many sources found in the Torah and the Talmud where the use of gemstones is mentioned. Two sources will be shared, one from the Torah and one from the Talmud – the oral Torah, where one learns Jewish law from.

In the Torah, Exodus 28 starting from verses 9 – 30 gemstones are mentioned as part of the attire of the Kohen Gadol – High Priest, stating that two Shoham- translated as onyx stones were placed on his shoulders, with 6 names of the tribes of Israel were engraved on each stone. The verses continue with the breastplate that the Kohen Gadol wore; it had 12 gemstones, each stone representing a tribe in Israel, and these stones were set in gold.

The Talmud talks about a Tekumah stone, a Tekumah is translated as a stone that naturally had another stone within it, like a fetus in its mother’s womb (Mishnah Berura 303:77) it was known to help prevent miscarriages. This stone is brought up in the Talmud asking if a woman may carry this stone in a public domain on the Jewish Sabbath, (where carrying is not permitted in a public domain). The sages concluded that yes, the pregnant woman may carry this stone, to prevent a miscarriage even if she never miscarried before.
