A Love Affair: Gemstones and Water
by Barbara Eisen - Co-Owner at Vita Juwel GmbH
Gemstones always had something fascinating about them and attracted human kind since the dawn of time. Diamonds, rubies and emeralds are considered exceptionally valuable around the world. But one should not forget that gems have not only been treasured because of their fascinating looks, but also because of their numerous properties and healing attributes.
Even in ancient times, gems were ascribed healing powers.
The wise greek doctors of the 1st century AC as well as Hildegard von Bingen, who is considered to be the founder of scientific natural history in Germany, used them to cure their patients.
Further, countless examples in the history of civilization prove the positive effects gems have on the human organism. Today, the analytical crystal healing methods are a significant component of treatment for many holistic therapeutic practitioners.
Drinking gemstone water can be traced back thousands of years.
One way to utilize the power of the gems is to drink gemstone water. We all know that the human body consists mainly of water. Water is the elixir of life, our most valuable natural resource. Nothing impacts our well-being more than drinking enough good quality water.
You probably know that water is not just H2O, meaning an assembly of oxygen and hydrogen molecules. Dr. Masaru Emoto, who was a highly reputable scientist and the author of the New York Times bestseller “The Hidden Messages in Water”, discovered that water not only has a memory, but that it can also be improved by external influences like gemstones.
But how does that work?
Dependent on their genesis, crystal structure and colour, each type of gem has its unique kind of energetic information. The gems transfer their information to the water and, thus, improve the waters' vitalization level. An effect, which regular water drinkers might even be able to taste and which becomes clearly visible under the microscope:
Louis Pasteur, a French chemist and microbiologist who lived in the 19th century, used to say that “we drink 90% of our illnesses”. By putting gems in the drinking water we can enhance the quality of this water to a level that is comparable to fresh spring water.
There are a lot of things happening around us that we don’t understand or that we are not able to prove scientifically. However, sometimes we should just believe in what is proven by our senses.
If we are able to see, taste and feel the difference of gemstone water, shouldn’t we have the confidence to trust ourselves?
On a usual Monday morning I was out grocery shopping and went around the store to look for the recycled toilet paper and the recycled waste bin plastic bags. It was the usual routine and felt a little gloomy compared to when I first started with the recycled-products. Was it really the end of recycling for me or was there just something missing? (...)
Traveling can be great fun, but it can also be a strain on your body and mind. Rushing for flights, changing time zones, sitting for extended periods, poor food, and new environments disrupt our daily routines and rhythms. Also, being on the go we find ourselves choosing convenient fast food options and throwing our regular balanced diet out the window. (...)
