Gemstones also carry properties that make them powertools when used together with other Ayurvedic lifestyle adjustments or in ways of balancing our chakra systems.
A powerful stone for example to pacify Pitta Dosha, cool and detoxify blood and boost proper function of the liver is Bloodstone, or Heliotrope. This is a preferred gem you would find in a mala made to harmonize the pitta constitution.
Another example is Jasper, an opaque stone that comes in many different colors. Jasper can be used to ground a vata person and connect them to earth energy. Red jasper is a fabulous gem to ground and energize vata and is also connected to Muladhara, our root chakra.
You can see that every gem has a purpose and, chosen well, will act as a gentle tool to bring you back to wellness and help re-align body and mind.
Gems – Beauty and Purpose
In Dharma Malas we use gems that correspond directly to the planet or have a certain effect on body and mind. We don’t just randomly choose pretty jewels, but use stones for a purpose, be that to harmonize your Vedic birth chart, chakras, or help you balance your Ayurvedic doshas.
I believe in the healing power of gemstones and feel that the optimal way to use them is to find a way to make them part of your life with wearable and functional gemstone malas that will be a great fashion statement and meditation tool.
