Energy is all around us, it's in everything from plants, animals, air, minerals and even in rocks, it's basically our life force and links all things together. Many people go through their life never really giving much thought to energy and how it can effect us, they simply take it for granted in their daily lives, but without it there would quite simply be... nothing. When we stop for a moment and take a closer look at the power that can be harnessed from energy and it's uses, especially for health and healing, we then understand how important it is to keep more of an open mind to the gifts that are naturally provided for us all by the earth and have been used for centuries..
Deep in the earth gemstones are formed that are composed of the same types of minerals as our own bodies, and also in the natural things we eat. Gemstones hold energy inside of them and can be powerful conductors capable of sending this energy to our bodies through what is known as an electromagnetic force field. I know this all sounds very 'Si fi' and like something from Star Trek lol:), but it actually works and in doing so helps to realign our own energies and can restore balance to our health.
Gemstones are very beautiful on their own and can be kept beside the bed or in a purse or wallet, but their greatest advantage is that they can be turned in to the most intricate pieces of jewellery such as a necklace, bracelet, ring or even a key chain that can be attached anywhere, and so the right stones needed to heal a person can be worn all the time. Giving someone a gift that not only looks special but can also benefit their health seems to my mind as perfect, but how do you go about finding the right stones for a certain need?
I have created a list below to show you the gemstones and each of their healing values...

All though I have been researching alternative ways to promote natural healing for many years now, I still consider my self as only knowing a very small amount as there are endless possibilities. The gemstones I have detailed for you above are just a little collection from the things I have learned and so if you wish to know more about them then I would recommend one of the many books available by authors who have studied this subject for far longer than me
