This weekend my girls and I spent hours perusing the annual gem show in our nearest city. How can you not love looking at thousands of interesting and colorful stones and crystals, and picking a few to bring home?! So with rocks on my mind, I thought I’d present you with my top 14 fertility gemstones.
But first, let me quickly explain why this might have any correlation to the mind-body topics usually discussed here.
Each of these fertility gemstones has many associated healing properties. Some are said to help heal physical ailments, while others are meant to bring less tangible benefits like peace of mind or emotional balancing. You can take it all for face value, or you can explain it another way.
From a mind-body perspective, I see stones as having healing properties due to the way they make us feel, plus a little bit of the placebo effect. Allow me to explain.
It’s said there’s an energetic vibration to everything, including you. Every object or organism emits its own energy, whether positive, negative, or neutral.
Being around objects or organisms with a high energy output can help you increase your energy as well. Tree, stones, and uplifting people can all have a positive effect on how you think and feel.
You can sometimes feel an energetic boost when touching various stones. This could be from your mind’s perceptions of that stone or from the fact that we are coming into contact with a natural substance direct from our healing earth.
When we come into contact with plants, rocks or even soil, there are scientifically proven positive benefits we receive, for both mind and body. Many say these benefits are from the energy they radiate.
The colors, textures, sparkles or other physical traits of these gems are pleasing to the eye and engaging for your mind. Taking in their beauty and variety can provide positive and grounding mind-body benefits.
When you study the various healing benefits of a particular stone and allow your mind to entertain the various interests, your mind can create a thought process that stimulates physical changes in the body.
Much like a person taking a sugar pill might begin to heal aspects of their body, a person who holds to the traditional stories of various fertility gemstones might also create more balance in their own body or emotions.
Having a physical stone associated with these positive mind-body benefits is excellent in another way. There is a physical object that anchors in those positive benefits, so whenever you see or touch the stone, you are compounding the benefits as if you were speaking affirmations to yourself.
