GEM STONE PENDENTS
Gems are used to avert the negative influence of various planets or to increase their positive effects. The use of gems has been mentioned in the Vedic literature— The Brihat Samhita, Bhava Prakash, Ayurveda Prakash, Guruda Purana and the Rasa Ratna Samuchaya.
The gem therapy described in this book is based on the Vedic (Indian) or sidereal system of astrology.Each sign of the zodiac is ruled by a planet, and each planet gives off a cosmic vibration and rules, or is related to, certain gemstones. The gems absorb or reflect the planets’ vibration, or rays. Wearing the proper gem can increase a planet’s positive effect on the wearer because the gem acts as a filter that allows only positive vibrations to have influence.
Gems surround their wearer with an electromagnetic field. If a person is receiving a planet’s negative rays, wearing the correct gemstone can counteract those bad effects and allow only the planet’s positive effects to work on the person. Wearing a gemstone to counteract the malefic effects of a planet is like carrying an umbrella to avoid getting wet; the gemstone actually deflects a planet’s negative rays.
