I’ve been asked several times, “what are the meanings of the stones incorporated into your jewelry”? It got me thinking…do stones have meanings and therefore power? Is this power something that’s scientifically proven or do people simply have to have faith?
The short answer is that it’s been difficult to articulate stones can have an undeniable, direct healing effect on the people that wear them. However, people around the globe believe stones have significant power and will make a dramatic influence in your life when worn. These belief systems have been handed down through the ages and the meanings are quite similar to what they were thousands of years ago.
To give us some background, the earliest jewelry can be traced to the civilizations in the Mediterranean and what is now Iran around 3,000 to 400 BC. These were usually simple stone amulets and seals. Many of these amulets and seals carried spiritual meanings, stars, and floral designs. The Royal Tombs in ancient Sumner, dating back to 3000 BC, had what many believe to be the greatest collection of all times. Mummies were found to be encrusted with every imaginable type of jewelry worn: headdresses, necklaces, earrings, rings, crowns, and pins. Sweet!
Were these people from long ago on to something? We know they didn’t have devices, people and jobs vying for their attention every waking hour. We also know they didn’t have the modern conveniences of our age either so they had their own stressors (No Whole Foods? The horror!). I would speculate they had more time to understand the world around them and quite literally, feel unique energies.
An object at its most basic core has an energy which in turn has a vibrational frequency to it. Quantum Physics shows us that there’s energy in the smallest flower to the largest whale and everything in between, even inanimate objects. Nothing is at rest and as crazy as it is to think about, we are living in an ocean of energy. Even our own thoughts and feelings have a vibration! So by that same token, why wouldn’t there be energy in a stone that can be transferred to our own energy, or vibrational frequency?
As humans, we are in the unique position of being able to learn every single day, therefore growing and evolving into better versions of ourselves. I marvel at the very true fact there is so much that is not yet understood. Was the world flat at some point? Nope. Did people believe that to be true because they didn’t know any better? You bet. At a basic level, we can become inspired by the different stone meanings. At a higher level we can incorporate jewelry, made directly from the earth we live on, to empower us in meaningful ways in our everyday lives.
