Gems for the Economy

It’s not as if you need the talking heads to tell you that we’re in economic trouble, you live with it every day. Even if your personal finances or your retirement income seem stable now, you worry about how long that will last. If you’re among the millions of people in the United States and around the world who’ve been hit hard, you’re struggling to maintain your home and buy the groceries.

Can gemstones help you through difficult financial times? If you choose wisely, the answer is yes.

It all starts with knowing what you’re looking for. I’m not in any position to offer any advice to those who have money to buy diamonds or other precious gems as investments; that’s way out of my league.

But I can offer help to those of you who, like me, are struggling and worried.

Gemstones to bring prosperity

Let me be clear: I don’t believe in magic bullets. I don’t think you can carry a gemstone in your pocket while you sit on the couch and watch reality TV and expect to have good things happen to you. Although it sure is true that people who work hard aren’t guaranteed of success, if you don’t expend significant energy on achieving your dreams, it’s a pretty sure bet that you’ll be disappointed.

That being said, I do believe that gemstones can help you realize your goals. Which ones? It depends.

Green stones, specifically moss agate, green garnet, green aventurine, and malachite can help you achieve prosperity. Tiger eye has been used to achieve and maintain financial success. Citrine, labradorite, bloodstone, and peridot can also help you achieve success.

But is that all that’s needed?

I believe positive thinking is at least as important as anything else we can do. Sure, we need to be realistic, but negative thinking patterns bring negativity toward you; positive thoughts and actions bring positive responses. If you think you’ll fail, chances are you will; if you believe you’ll get that job you’re interviewing for, you’re more likely to get the offer. Amazonite, garnet, and snowflake obsidian help to transform negative thoughts into beneficial ones. Rainbow quartz is particularly good at encouraging a positive outlook and helping you to see the positive possibilities of any situation.

Creativity and flexibility are also important attributes in tough times. Expand your mind and expand your possibilities. How can your current skill set and your past experiences be applied to a complementary position, or even to a completely new field? Green garnet, citrine, and green aventurine all encourage creativity. Malachite promotes flexibility.

There are other characteristics that are likely helpful, too. Courage, openness, and protection are just a few.

Of course, these are broad overviews; the properties of each stone should be studied more carefully to reflect your specific situation. Contact me for personal consultation and the creation of a gemstone talisman designed just for you.
