    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.

    Mother of Pearl stirs and awakens the primordial memory of your origin in the infinite ocean of divine love. It stirs this memory in your thoughts, your feelings, and in every cell of your physical body. As your memory opens, this divine love flows into you, repairing the deep wounds created by unfulfilled needs.

    Every cell in your physical body and every aspect of your mind and emotions has a primordial memory. Mother of Pearl stirs the forces that have kept this memory hidden. It is the memory of the time you were part of the sea—the unbounded spiritual ocean where all souls dwell.

    As Mother of Pearl stirs your mind, it also enlivens the memories of recent dreams, making their symbols clearer and more easily understood. It also stirs your mind to look within and beyond itself to deeper levels of your being. As Mother of Pearl stirs your emotions, they become more balanced and harmonious. The sharpness of negative emotions, such as a sharp temper or the pang of fear, is smoothed and calmed. If you have difficulty expressing positive feelings, such as love, these feelings become stronger, more defined, and easier to express.

    In your physical body, Mother of Pearl produces an overall calming effect as it gently stirs the life energy of your cells. Like waves lapping the shore, this stirring is steady, relaxing, and rhythmical. Overactive mechanisms throughout the body are calmed, and the flexibility of your cells increases, improving their ability to accept oxygen and life force.

    All human beings have a natural, innate need to be cared for, nurtured, and loved. These needs are first felt in the womb and are most apparent in infants and young children. Even if most of our needs were well met when we were children, we do not stop having these needs as we get older. They are part of our very fabric. As infants, we need to be loved and nurtured in order to survive. As we grow older, these needs are not as critical for our physical survival, but they are absolutely essential for our emotional survival. As we grow into adulthood, our mothers are no longer there to fulfill all our needs for love and nurturing, and often life does not fulfill them either.

    All unfulfilled needs become like holes in the fabric of one’s being. These holes can have many sources, such as a scarcity of attention received in childhood; not receiving the education one wanted; inadequate food, shelter or clothing; or the absence of a relationship that fulfilled the need for love. When Mother of Pearl’s energy has saturated the aura, it detects these holes. There, its vibration sings of the source of infinite love. Its song stirs within every part of us the memory of this source—the primordial ocean of love out of which we all grow. As our memory opens to this ocean, its love flows into us and helps repair the holes created by unfulfilled needs.

    Sometimes, before these holes can be mended, you must acknowledge them and cry many tears. Mother of Pearl can help you with this part of your healing. It bestows the feeling that you are resting in the arms of a loving mother. Thus, Mother of Pearl helps those who need some motherly love, whether or not they are aware of that need. At the same time, it brings the security of knowing that the Mother within is always in your heart, ready to give you all the love, support, and comfort you need.

    Energetic Protection from Negative Influences

    Like a protecting mother, Mother of Pearl can help safeguard you from negative influences. When certain harmful frequencies enter your aura, Mother of Pearl either scatters or absorbs them. These include the frequencies of other people’s negative thoughts and emotions, as well as electromagnetic radiation and the harmful emissions of televisions, radios, and microwave transmitters. Although this protection is a side effect of Mother of Pearl’s energy, it is a profound one and begins to take effect within minutes of donning a Mother of Pearl necklace.

    Energetic Benefits for Children

    CAUTION: To prevent choking, do not allow babies or very young children to wear a necklace.

    Because of its protective properties, Mother of Pearl is an ideal gemstone for young children. A child's inner being is delicate and precious; it is the foundation upon which they will build the rest of their life. In addition to their need for physical protection, a child's inner nature must be shielded and allowed to grow unharmed.

    Mother of Pearl does not protect a child from the emotions that are important for them to experience. For example, a parent's discipline may be needed to teach a valuable lesson. However, if a parent or anyone oversteps the boundaries of healthy discipline into destructive anger, Mother of Pearl will deflect the energy of this anger away from the child. Thus, it can deflect the brutal thoughts and emotions that accompany abuse. If the child is wearing Mother of Pearl at the time, although they may cry and appear shaken, the inner core of their being will be protected.

    Mother of Pearl’s shimmering, reflective quality helps its energy quickly enter the aura. The more opalescence Mother of Pearl possesses, the more deeply it can work—be it physically, emotionally, or mentally—and the more clearly you will receive its benefits

    At night, when I’m tired and spiritually at a low, I put on my Mother of Pearl and feel as though I’m enveloped in a soft blanket. I feel tension leave my body and peacefulness enter.

    As long as I can remember, I’ve been a body in perpetual motion—a typical Type A personality. Relaxation was just a word to me; my body was never allowed to truly experience it. I’ve been wearing a Mother of Pearl necklace for several months now. I’m still in perpetual motion, chasing my son and maintaining a busy household, but now I feel calm and peaceful inside. I’m a different person, and I like myself a lot more.

    I wear Mother of Pearl when I am having difficulty feeling loving. It has brought out more sweetness and helps me be more loving and patient with my clients.

    A friend of ours recently had her first child and complained about painful postpartum blues. To help out, we purchased two Mother of Pearl necklaces, one for Mom and one for her new baby. When the necklaces arrived, our friend put both of them around her own neck and felt so much relief that she refused to take them off. In the long run, we figured it was the best thing for the baby for Mom to feel better, which she did!

    I put a Mother of Pearl necklace around my dog’s neck, and she no longer suffers from separation anxiety.

    J. H., Glen Arm, Maryland

    I recently purchased Mother of Pearl necklace for my cat. Normally she is very head-shy; when I take off her collar or put it back on, she gets very upset and runs away and hides for a while. But when I showed her this necklace, she actually made the kind of chirping sound she makes when she recognizes that she is being given a treat. And when I put it around her neck, she settled down and started to purr. This is very unusual for her.

    Since wearing the Mother of Pearl, she has become bolder and braver. She used to be reluctant to come over for attention when the other cats were around, and she would wait for them to leave before she approached. But now she comes right over, even when the other cats are present. She is also less aggressive with the other cats and tends to initiate play rather than aggression. The other cats in the house also seem to be behaving more positively, too.

    Wear It Around Your Neck

    In addition to wearing a Mother of Pearl necklace around your neck, you can use it for more focused treatments. The simplest treatment is to place it 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.

    Time Guidelines

    Mother of Pearl can be worn continuously. However, it is always wise to be sensitive to your body’s responses. If you start to feel a headache or significant discomfort, take the necklace off for a while. Then allow your body time to adjust to the changes initiated by the gems by wearing them for only an hour or two a day. Gradually increase this time until you can comfortably wear the gems for as long and often as you wish.

    Cleanse Mother of Pearl 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 Mother of Pearl necklace. Learn more about these methods.

    Salt Bed: Lay in a half-inch of sea salt overnight. Place a thin natural-fiber cloth between the salt and the gems.

    Salt Bath: Soak in a solution of two teaspoons sea salt for every half-cup of cool water. First lay the necklace flat in a bowl. Add water and then sprinkle the salt into it. Soak for 15 to 30 minutes. Then briefly rinse the gems with clear water before patting them dry.

    Plant Rejuvenation: 2 – 3 times a week, wrap the necklace around the base of a healthy houseplant.

    Sunbath: Every 1 - 2 weeks, lay the gems in sunlight for a maximum of 15 minutes at a time.

    Special Notes: Avoid clay cleansing or rinsing with plain water, which will dull Mother of Pearl’s polish.

    Store the necklace separately to protect Mother of Pearl, which is a particularly soft and fragile gem.

    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.
