Not long ago, I found myself standing in line behind a woman at the pharmacy who was speaking very loud. Not many people were in the store at that time, so it was impossible not to eavesdrop on her conversation. Attractive and dressed in impeccable corporate attire, she was leaning in toward the pharmacist with excitement.
“I’m amazed at how grounded I am,” she said. “I just don’t know why today is so different.”
I did a very quick inventory of the jewelry she was wearing and immediately discovered why she felt so good. Dangling from each ear was a Hematite earring. Hematite is a dark gray stone with a shiny finish and is known for its grounding of our energy to the reality of our daily routine. In fact, every piece of jewelry you wear carries a vibration. That vibration is enhanced by the energetic properties of the stone, the color, and the setting. A diamond ring set in gold represents innocent power and purity of heart, and it will ground us to being powerful on a more practical level. However, when set in silver it works with that the energy of silver and will allow more power in communication. By learning the general meanings of the colors and gemstones of the jewelry you choose, you will be able to direct your energy to choose gemstones that embrace positive intention.
Here is a list of Birthstones and their meaning. This list of will help you choose gemstone combinations that can be applied by month, by birthstone energy, or by color. Nothing is etched in “stone” here. Have fun and experiment.

Before you put your next piece of jewelry on, give yourself a moment to reflect on how it makes you feel. Sit quietly for a few moments and let the energy speak to you. Then choose gemstones and colors that embrace feelings that are positive, happy and protective. With experience, you will learn to enhance and embrace a personal vibration that makes you feel complete and at peace.
