    Accelerating Change

    Accelerate positive changes | Break out of a rut | Heighten your spiritual practice


    Riverstone's energy accelerates change. It energizes your aura, speeding the resolution of any process you are experiencing. Read more

    Riverstone helps you move more swiftly through the changes associated with a particular process, such as a therapy or cleansing. Because Riverstone will lend its unbridled energy to any activity, positive or negative, you must provide a focus for its work—for example, through mental intention or by wearing another therapeutic gemstone. When used as an adjunct to meditation, Riverstone energizes your whole being and helps you make the changes that lead to deeper spiritual experiences. 
    • Accelerate certain positive changes in your body or your life
    • Break out of a rut
    • Heighten experiences in meditation or other spiritual practice
    • Intensify or accelerate the effects of another life-promoting therapy or therapeutic gemstone
    • Accelerate the process of labor and transition during childbirth

    Tips for Choosing

    Only the finest quality, pure gems yield the therapeutic results we expect from gemstone energy medicine. The higher a gem’s quality, the more therapeutically powerful it is. As a gem rises in quality, its therapeutic potency often increases far more than its price. Going up even one level of quality can deliver many times more therapeutic power.

    Next to quality, the most important factor in determining a gemstone’s therapeutic power is mass. Quality being equal, larger gems are more potent than smaller ones. If your neck is sensitive to weight, consider wearing somewhat smaller gems. Children usually require shorter necklaces and smaller gems.

    Quality and gem size being equal, longer necklaces are more therapeutically potent than shorter ones because they contain more gemstone mass. Consider your comfort when choosing; for example, shorter people may prefer wearing shorter necklaces. If you wish to wear more than one necklace simultaneously, ideally they should be of different lengths. All necklaces 23 inches or shorter contain a 14K gold clasp; longer necklaces have no clasp.

    Riverstone’s energy accelerates change. It energizes your entire aura, speeding the resolution of any physical or inner process you are experiencing. Riverstone helps you move more swiftly through the changes associated with a particular process. For example, if your body is in a cleansing mode, the cleansing is sped up; if your body is in a specific healing mode, the healing is accelerated.

    Riverstone attracts and absorbs a type of energy released by moving water. This energy enlivens the Riverstone, increasing the velocity, strength, and power of the Riverstone’s energy. Like wild, unbridled horses, Riverstone’s energy races in every direction. Because human beings are made mostly of water, when a human being wears Riverstone, the Riverstone has a vast source of potential energy to tap into and transform.

    How quickly Riverstone accelerates a change depends on how long you wear it—for as soon as you remove the Riverstone, the accelerating force behind the change stops. How quickly it works also depends on how disciplined you are in focusing on the change you desire. The results of wearing Riverstone with a focus are quite different from those of wearing it without one.

    Wearing Riverstone without a focus means wearing it with no specific goal in mind or without another gemstone or healing influence to give the Riverstone direction. If you wear Riverstone without a focus, undirected changes will occur and confusion will result. These undirected changes might be in your outlook, attitudes, feelings, or physical circumstances or in the way you react to certain stimuli. When using Riverstone, you must have a clear intention, along with the motivation and desire to change. If even one of these factors is missing, wearing Riverstone can lead to imbalances and be quite detrimental. For example, without a clearly defined goal, the Riverstone energy might attach itself to the energy of a disease and accelerate its development.

    Before putting the Riverstone around your neck, you must spend three to five minutes strongly focusing on and thinking about your reason for wearing it. This short contemplation period will focus mental energy on the situation you wish to address. This mental energy acts like a beacon, guiding the Riverstone energy toward the situation of choice. When the energies of the Riverstone and the situation become linked, the situation's energy enters a swiftly-moving current of Riverstone energy. The Riverstone cannot take the situation's energy and run with it in any direction; it must follow the projected course of your intention.

    To focus Riverstone’s work, you can also wear or use it with another therapeutic gemstone. Riverstone can serve as a powerful element in a gemstone energy medicine protocol, helping you to move more swiftly through the changes characteristic of the other gem. For example, if the gemstone has a certain healing effect, this effect is accelerated; if it has a balancing effect, the movement toward balance is hastened. Be aware, however, that as things speed up, your life might seem to go further out of balance. Yet you will simply be letting go of the things creating the imbalance at a much faster rate.

    Enhancing Spiritual Practice

    If you enjoy meditation or spiritual contemplation, you can wear Riverstone around your neck either during your quiet time or just beforehand. During spiritual practice, you focus on the spirituality within you, and this is indeed a strong focus. When Riverstone is used as an adjunct to meditation or contemplation, your whole being becomes energized. It helps you make the changes that will lead to heightened spiritual experiences.

    Accelerating Other Therapies’ Effects

    Riverstone also can be used to accelerate the effects of other energy medicine protocols, such as herbal therapies. Again, the Riverstone must be applied for short periods and with the clear intention of supporting the other therapy.

    Facilitating Emotionally Focused Gemstones

    Compared to the physical body and its processes, emotions are highly volatile. Because of this, directing Riverstone’s raw element of change at the emotions could destabilize them and create havoc. Therefore, one must use extreme caution when wearing Riverstone with an emotional focus or applying it with an emotionally focused gemstone, such as Ruby or Roselle. The Riverstone applications can be frequent, but they must always be brief. For example, you can wear the Riverstone necklace several times a day but only for a few minutes each time; or you can wear the Riverstone several times a week for 15 minutes to an hour each time.

    Support in Childbirth

    There is no activity in human experience more focused than the birth and delivery of a child. During labor, every cell in the mother's body is concentrated on this one goal. If a woman wishes to employ Riverstone during childbirth, it is best to place it around her neck after labor is well under way. If labor is progressing slowly or has become stalled, Riverstone will help speed up the process. It will help the mother dilate and move through transition.

    After transition and during the pushing stage, Poppy Jasper is the gemstone of choice. It will give the mother access to more energy for pushing. Learn more about Poppy Jasper.

    Therapeutic quality Riverstone is creamy tan with patches and veins of white or light brownish-white. Riverstone is a soft gem and must be shaped into spheres carefully. Beware of Riverstone spheres that have been sprayed with a clear coating to keep the stones from deteriorating; this coating renders the Riverstone non-therapeutic. Gemisphere’s Riverstone has a slightly shiny appearance created by the final polish given to the spheres during cutting. This polish does not affect the stones’ therapeutic value and wears off over time with use and proper cleansing. Gemisphere offers only untreated, therapeutic-quality Riverstone.

    With Riverstone, things accelerate for me and flow faster. When I was in school as an adult, wearing Riverstone helped me complete projects for my computer class more quickly. Even just getting to school happened faster with Riverstone. When I find myself in the fast lane and want to keep up, Riverstone helps me get a lot done in a short time.

    I used Riverstone during the birth of our daughter. I wore it on and off for several hours in the evening during labor. Around midnight I took it off, because the contractions had become so intense and frequent, and at 1:25 AM our daughter was born. I felt that the Riverstone speeded things up and helped me have a very easy and manageable birth.

    Wear It Around Your Neck

    One of the most powerful and convenient ways to use a Riverstone necklace is to wear it around your neck. 

    Special Time Guidelines

    Riverstone should be worn for a maximum of one or two hours at a time.

    Focused Treatments

    In addition to wearing a Riverstone necklace around your neck, you can use it for this focused treatment:

    Enhancing Another Therapy

    Riverstone is placed on a localized area of the body to prepare it to receive another life-giving therapy, such as a gemstone therapy. The Riverstone enlivens the area's cells and makes them more receptive to the effects of other healing energies.

    Knotted vs. Unknotted Riverstone Necklaces

    A Riverstone necklace is most powerful when no knots are tied between its spheres. However, even in a knotted necklace, the energetic attraction from one sphere to the next is strong enough for the Riverstone energy to pass through the space between them. Although its effects are not as strong, a knotted necklace might be preferable for most people, because it is less likely to compromise the wearer's balance.

    Cleanse Riverstone Regularly

    To maintain their effectiveness, therapeutic gemstones need regular care. As the gems help us release energetic impurities, some of these energies cling to the gems’ surface and inhibit their ability to work at their peak capacity. A simple energetic cleansing will clear these energies and restore the gems to their naturally vibrant state. You can use any of following methods to cleanse your Riverstone necklace. Learn more about these methods.

    Plant Rejuvenation: 2 – 3 times a week, wrap the necklace around the base of a healthy houseplant or lay the necklace in its branches.

    Salt Bed: 2 – 3 times a week, lay the gems in a half-inch of salt for at least an hour or overnight. Place a thin natural-fiber cloth between the salt and the gems.

    Water Rinse: Rinse the gems 2 – 3 times a week.

    Sunbath: Every 1 - 2 weeks, lay the gems in sunlight for a maximum of 20 minutes at a time.

    Clay Cleanse: For deeper cleansing, occasionally perform a bentonite clay bath or pack.

    When Your Necklace First Arrives

    When you put on a new necklace or one you haven’t worn for a while, bring it into your aura with consciousness and a clear intent. We call this “practicing presence.” By opening yourself to the gems’ energies and consciously cooperating with the process of change, you can greatly enhance the gemstones’ benefits.
