How to Use Therapeutic Gemstones
Enjoying the benefits of therapeutic gemstones is exceptionally easy.
Wear the Gems Around Your Neck
One of the most powerful and convenient ways to experience the healing benefits of gemstones is to wear them as a necklace. When you wear therapeutic gems around your neck, their energies radiate in all directions, penetrating the deepest levels of your body and aura. There, the gems work to neutralize the energetic blockages that obscure your natural radiance and lead to ill health. At the same time, the gems’ energies uplift and nourish you at a fundamental level to energize you, support healing, and make enduring changes.
A gemstone necklace will silently work for you as you go about your day. At night while you are sleeping, you can wear the necklace or keep it within three feet of your body to maintain your connection with the gems.
You can also use therapeutic necklaces for a wide variety of focused treatments. The simplest treatment is to place the gems on a specific area of your body to focus its healing energies there. For example, you can curl up the necklace and place it on an ailing, injured, or painful area to accelerate the area’s recovery.
You can also place certain necklaces on your chakras, palms, or soles of your feet, or you can apply them in your aura to produce specific results. Still other ways to use necklaces include contemplative and diagnostic techniques—ways to reveal the causes of a condition and thus take the first steps toward healing it.
For much more information on how to use a particular gemstone—including instructions for focused treatments—see the necklace’s dedicated page.

When Your Necklace First Arrives
You can greatly enhance the effects of your therapeutic gems by using them with awareness, openness, and a clear intent. We call this “practicing presence.” When you put on a new necklace or one you haven’t used for a while, introduce it to your body and aura with this simple procedure that will deepen your connection with it:
|1.||Holding your necklace in the palm of your hand, gaze at it for several moments. Drink in the gemstones’ color and energy with your eyes. Open yourself to this energy and welcome it.|
Introduce the gems to your body by touching the necklace to three therapy windows for a few seconds each:
Hold the necklace straight out in front of you, and then slowly bring it toward your heart. As you do, energetically breathe in the gemstones’ energy. If at any point you feel resistance to the gems’ movement, bring in the gems more slowly to support the dissolution of any blockages.
Hold the necklace on your heart, and spend a few moments receiving it in gratitude.
Place the necklace around your neck.
Cleanse the Gems 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 peak capacity. A simple energetic cleansing will clear these energies and restore the gems to their naturally vibrant state. Several minutes of care given regularly will keep your gems vital and ready to help you take your next step in growth and healing. View cleansing instructions.
