What are Vedic Gemstones? Why are they used?

What are Vedic Gemstones? Why are they used?

 

Vedic gemstones are precious and semi precious natural gemstones from the Earth. They are used to enhance and support planetary energies within our lives, as according to our individual birth chart. Vedic gemstones are referred to as Ratna’s, and they are one of the primary remedies or ‘upayas’ in Vedic Astrology. 

 

They are used to elevate one’s overall wellbeing but magnetizing and magnifying a high value presence of planets that are supportive in an individual's jyotish chart.

 

Each gemstone holds the potency and vibration of its corresponding planet. They have the ability to infuse the wearer with those qualities. To wear a Vedic gemstone, is to enhance the presence of the planet, refine your understanding of it’s highest invitation, and then radiate it outward into the experience of your life. 

 

Each planet has a corresponding precious and semi precious gemstone. And as they are worn for very specific reason, there is a potent and prescribed way of wearing each stone. Including the way in which the stone is set, metal it must be set in, and the finger it is worn on. We recommend that each stone for Jyotish purposes are of at least 2 carats. And the deeper and clearer the stone, the stronger it’s potency. 

 

The Vedic gemstones are to be set in such a way that the back is open, so the light may shine through the stone, and hit your skin directly beneath. The light activates the stone and is transmuted through the stone’s energy, moving into direct contact with you. As mentioned, each stone has a finger related to a planet, but on the left hand is a more internal embodiment, while wearing the stone on the right will be a more outward experience. 

 

The following is each planet and it’s stones as well as the finger it should be worn on.

  • Finger: Ring Finger

Understanding Vedic Astrology and Astrological Gems for Support and Healing

Understanding Vedic Astrology and Astrological Gems for Support and Healing

Jyotish means, the Science of Light, also known as the eye of the Veda. Veda is the knowledge of one’s self. Jyotish is the light of oneself which is in time. Every Jiva, is an expression of the cosmic self. The origin of Jyotish stems from the Yog-Vedantic tradition dated anywhere from 4000-12000 years go. 

Jyotish helps us see who we are and reveals the possibility of evolution of the jiva, atman (soul), it is used as a tool to refine and become more illuminated.

Jyotish is a fundamental part of the Yoga-Vedantic tradition. At the moment of birth we look at the placement of all the planets, 27 nakshatras, and constellations, it’s the cosmic seed which holds the memory. When we look at ones birth chart, one is able to understand the movement of the individual self within time; gain insight into relevant knowledge and gain spiritual maturity. We can use the information to support us in using this time in its highest expression possible. We gain a greater understanding  of ourselves and our own karmic footprint. By gaining greater insight into your own karmic footprint, you can elegantly be in tune with your own flow of life, where you need to evolve, surrender and take a stand.

 Gemstones serve as remedies, they are worn as a magnifier to enhance a certain planetary energy. Just like a supplement that we take, gemstones are naturally occurring and come from the womb of the earth. They act like a magnet, therefore, whatever planetary energy or quality we want to enhance, the gemstone becomes a support tool, an energetic supplement. Gemstones channel certain frequency like a radio.
