Recently, I was asked why I do not really talk about or post on my website or social media about the healing properties of gemstones.
Michele’s Healing Properties Beliefs’
Most of my life I usually had stone or mineral in my pocket. One day my father, who has a very concreate scientific mind, asked me why I always had a stone in my pocket. I always replied, “that it makes me feel better.” He asked me how it made me feel better? Knowing that I needed to come up with a very scientific answer I explained…
Rock are minerals, our bodies are made up of minerals. Dad always taught me that when we get sick it is because our body is lacking a type of mineral. Most of our medications that we take daily are minerals. Our largest organ of the body is our skin. So laying a mineral on top of our skin, our body absorbs small amounts of that mineral into our body.
He asked how do I know which stone I need. I told him, that there are several books written on this subject, but I use them as very loose guidelines. I really depend on whatever stone I am drawn to that day.
Here is a list of a few books that I use as a very loose guideline for Healing Properties. What I have found is that some of these books contradict each other, they are reporting on what experiences they have found with a particular stone.
