Benefits of Wearing a Solid Therapeutic Blue Sapphire Necklace
Blue Sapphire is the gemstone bearer of the blue color ray. Its effects are a combination of those of the blue ray and the energy of Sapphire's mineral composition, corundum. Blue Sapphire nourishes the mind and puts thoughts in order and perspective. The blue ray it carries disintegrates disharmony in the physical head, thereby clearing the pathways for healing energies to enliven all the functions centered there.
Blue Sapphire can help you gain self-mastery - that is, mastery of your mind, emotions, and physical body. To appreciate how Blue Sapphire does this, it’s necessary to understand certain aspects of the mind. The mind is complex and comprised of many levels, or areas. Thoughts are formed at the highest level of the mind
- that which is closest to your purely spiritual aspect. There, thoughts are generated continually; indeed, a new thought is born every moment. Ultimately, you have the power to discriminate and choose which thoughts you wish to have. This is an important choice, because your thoughts feed and otherwise profoundly affect your emotions and physical body.
Consequently, learning mental discrimination is essential. This discrimination is the ability to choose which thoughts you would like to entertain, empower, and express. It is also the ability to choose which thoughts you would like to ignore and let flow out into the ethers, so that they never manifest or affect anything. Blue Sapphire can teach such mental discrimination.
Blue Sapphire's first step is to bring some orderliness to the mind and thoughts. When your thoughts are in order, your thinking becomes clearer and memory improves. This allows you to give more attention to genuinely important thoughts. The number of useless thoughts we have during the day is astounding. Sapphire promotes useful thoughts and useful thinking. When thoughts are in order, it is also easier to distinguish between true and untrue thoughts, complete and incomplete thoughts, and balanced and imbalanced thoughts - both in oneself and in others.
When your thoughts are in order and you are thinking clearly, your life also falls into order. This is because the state of your mind is always reflected in your emotional and physical bodies. Your thoughts, attitudes, and concepts shape your physical body and all within it. Indeed, one of the mind's functions is to orchestrate the experiences of the emotional and physical bodies. When the mind is more orderly, this orderliness is reflected in these aspects. Conversely, when the minds suffers from any type of dysfunction, inevitably a dysfunction will occur somewhere in the emotional or physical body.
Negative and unconstructive thoughts, attitudes, and prejudices act like garbage in our system. They offer no upliftment, and their impulses contribute to a downward spiral of health. When someone allows mental garbage to flow through his or her mind, this garbage often collects in the head, causing the physical brain and all the head's functions to become malnourished, strained, and stressed. If, for example, the eyesight, hearing, or pituitary gland is malfunctioning in some way, it probably means that mental garbage has accumulated in the head.
The blue ray carried by Blue Sapphire is nourishment for the head and mind. It also disintegrates any negativity or disharmony - in other words, garbage - that has accumulated in the head. This is parallel to the way Emerald's green ray disintegrates physical-body disharmony.
We have all heard that thoughts can cure. The key lies in being able to determine which thoughts will act as medicine for a certain condition and which ones will feed the condition with disharmonious energy. It is also important to know which thoughts can cancel out and stop the flow of disharmonious thoughts. Finally, it is essential to know which thoughts will resolve the condition and raise you to the next level of understanding or health. Blue Sapphire can open all these levels of understanding, and this can cause fundamental changes, not only in your consciousness and attitudes but also in your health.
Your thoughts and concepts also strongly influence your emotions and emotional expressions, perhaps even more than they do your physical body. For example, if you think a certain situation will make you afraid, you will feel fear; or if it makes sense to your mind that a situation should make you feel loving, you will feel love. Consequently, when Sapphire puts the mind in order, the emotions naturally become more organized, more orderly, and more easily understood. Expressing the emotions you want to express also becomes easier.
The blue ray carried by Sapphire also helps bring your attention to your mind. When you wear a therapeutic Blue Sapphire necklace, the Sapphire energy enters your physical body through your throat chakra. Then it rises and fills your head, nourishing your brain and mind. The more nourishment your mind receives, the more it grows and expands in self-awareness. Interestingly, the more expanded your mind becomes, the more nourishment it requires; even the most brilliant mind must be fed or it will lose its vitality. Blue Sapphire supplies the mind with this essential nourishment.
Blue Sapphire increases mental flexibility. In the process, it loosens concepts and attitudes that are hardened and crusty. Because they are so ingrained, such concepts can keep you stuck in a certain state of consciousness. When these concepts are made more flexible, change of any kind becomes less traumatic and more attainable.
Blue Sapphire as a Spiritual Tool
One of the greatest obstacles to spiritual unfoldment is an inability to distinguish between one's mind and one's true spiritual identity. The mind is so sophisticated that it effectively creates its own center of intelligence. Sapphire can help make you aware that this intelligence
- with its glorious ability to expand its consciousness and provide wondrous, life-altering experiences - is not the true Self. Sapphire helps us learn that we are not our minds and that each of us is a pure spiritual being. When the mind becomes more orderly through the use of Sapphire, doors will open and opportunities will be presented. If taken, these opportunities will foster even greater mental orderliness and lead to experiences of greater spirituality in daily life.
Blue Sapphire and the Vascular System
Each of the seven color rays of the life force is particularly healing and nourishing to certain aspects of the physical body. The blue ray nourishes and supports the vascular system, nerve sheaths, cerebrospinal fluid, sense organs, blood, and brain. Consequently, wearing Blue Sapphire can help strengthen these parts of the body and resolve certain conditions associated with them.
How consistently you should wear Blue Sapphire depends in part on your purpose for wearing it. If you are using Blue Sapphire to remove disharmony in your head, to improve your eyesight or hearing, or to resolve imbalances in the brain, you should wear it continually without interruption for at least several months. This is also true when you are using Blue Sapphire to clear mental garbage. The process is comparable to taking out the household garbage
- it re-accumulates quickly and, if not removed, starts to overflow.
If you are using Blue Sapphire simply to organize your mental processes, you can wear it for shorter periods without losing ground. The Sapphire will pick up its work and begin organizing your thoughts wherever it last left off.
Amount to Wear
The best way to wear a solid Blue Sapphire necklace is in a short strand of 3-mm to 4-mm rounded Sapphires with a total necklace weight of 30 to 50 carats. A short necklace is one that lies close to the throat. The blue ray enters the body through the throat chakra, and the Sapphire energy rides on the blue ray. Such a necklace allows both the blue ray and the Sapphire energy to enter your throat chakra easily and to produce strong, immediate effects.
This amount of Blue Sapphire actually provides more energy than is needed by your physical head, and the excess will flow out through your brow chakra. Whenever a color ray flows out through your brow, your attention flows with it. This encourages you to become more aware of things beyond the physical arena. Thus, when your physical sight and hearing become clearer through the use of a 30- to 50-carat Sapphire necklace, so will your inner sight and hearing. Wearing a smaller amount of Sapphire
- even 1½ to 2 carats - will have some beneficial effects, but only if the Sapphire is properly combined in a necklace with other harmonious, supporting gemstones.
Care must be taken not to wear too much Blue Sapphire, thinking that more is better. It is important to avoid wearing more than one solid necklace of Sapphire or a solid necklace that falls significantly below the throat chakra. Wearing rounded Blue Sapphires larger than 5 mm can also be detrimental. Relatively large amounts of Sapphire can sometimes have wonderful influences on the mind, but your body and emotions will resist the overly rapid changes initiated by the Sapphire. This resistance can imbalance and scatter your mind and cause great mental confusion. Also, the more Blue Sapphire you wear, the more accumulated mental garbage it will stir up. If more garbage is released into your system than the Sapphire or your body can handle, your body will become stressed and imbalanced in its efforts to metabolize the garbage. Therefore, it is best not to wear too much Blue Sapphire.
Lavender Fire necklaces contain Blue Sapphire, Quartz, and Lavender.
The Mission of Lavender Fire
Lavender Fire offers the therapeutic benefits of Blue Sapphire and the blue ray, though to a lesser degree than a solid necklace of Blue Sapphire. The Quartz and Lavender amplify Sapphire's energy and enhance the flow of blue ray throughout your being. Thus, Lavender Fire affects your mind and body as though it contains more Sapphire than it actually does. Like a solid necklace of Blue Sapphire, Lavender Fire awakens you to the vast, unexplored areas of your mind.
Indications for Wearing a Lavender Fire Necklace
Because Lavender Fire's purpose is to deliver the benefits of Blue Sapphire, though to a milder degree, the indications for wearing Lavender Fire mirror those of wearing a solid Blue Sapphire necklace.
Benefits of Wearing a Lavender Fire Necklace
Lavender Fire incorporates the numbers one through four to draw the blue ray from the source of all color rays through your inner aspects to your physical body. Because this source is characterized by oneness¾one essence, one Spirit, and the absence of all duality
- it is symbolized by the number one. Hence, on either side of Lavender Fire's gold clasp, the first sections in which Sapphire appears each contain one Sapphire. Each successive section has one more Sapphire than the previous one, with the final two sections containing four Sapphires each. The number four helps draw the blue ray to your physical body. The ascending numbers concentrate the Sapphire energy, so that it enters your throat chakra and head with much greater force than it would if all the Sapphires were simply placed near your throat chakra.
Ideally, the front center of Lavender Fire should lie close to your throat chakra, which has a natural tendency to draw the blue ray into the head. The Sapphire and blue ray energies entering the throat affect the head, brain, and sensory organs in the same way that a solid necklace of Sapphire does, though not to the same degree. The specific arrangement of Lavender and Quartz in this necklace helps the Sapphire energy enter areas of your mind that otherwise could be accessed only if you wore a greater mass of Sapphire.
Lavender Fire enhances your mind's ability to communicate with all aspects of your being so that you can function as one unified organism. As you work toward realizing your mind’s full potential, Lavender Fire encourages the expansion of your mind's conscious capacity. Thus, Lavender Fire awakens you to the vast, unexplored areas of your mind.
How to Recognize Therapeutic-Quality Blue Sapphire
Not all Blue Sapphire is pure enough to emanate the energy required to produce Blue Sapphire's therapeutic effects. Blue Sapphire that is itself filled with flaws, contaminants, and impurities cannot clear impurities from the mind and head.
Four primary factors determine Blue Sapphire quality: color, clarity, consistency, and a trait called gem candescence.
An accurate assessment of Blue Sapphire's color and clarity requires a microscope. Ideal Sapphire is a rich, true blue - neither too pale nor too indigo. Only a microscope, which allows you to see how light passes through the gemstone, can reveal Blue Sapphire's true color. A microscope also lets you see whether the gem contains even the slightest black tinge. This is essential, because any black coloration is a severe contaminant that nullifies all of Blue Sapphire's effects. Even a wisp of black renders Blue Sapphire non-therapeutic.
The greater its clarity, the more energy a Blue Sapphire can radiate. Common inclusions found in Blue Sapphire are impurities, such as rock matrix, white clouds, and a toxic yellow discoloration that renders the Sapphire non-therapeutic.
Consistency is also an important element in a therapeutic Blue Sapphire necklace. Inconsistency in the color, clarity, or size of spheres within a necklace creates a distraction, which the Blue Sapphire energy must first overcome before it can do its work. This is one reason that most Blue Sapphire necklaces are not therapeutic or are much less therapeutic than their other quality parameters might indicate.
Gem candescence is an optical quality possessed by some Blue Sapphire. A bead displaying gem candescence looks like a drop of liquid Blue Sapphire. In the Sapphire in which it is found, gem candescence is an intense outpouring of the blue ray, making the Sapphire look like its own source of pure blue light. Its liquid appearance is an energetic quality that allows the Sapphire energy to access the mind instantly. All other factors being equal, gem-candescent Blue Sapphire is many times more powerful than Blue Sapphire without gem candescence.
