Emerald is the stone which most purely represents the energy patterns of the activated heart chakra (energy center in the body.) An open heart allows the cornucopia of universal blessings to flow into one s life and perhaps why emerald is known as a stone of prosperity. Wearing emerald helps attune one s vibrational pattern to the spectrum of abundance, allowing one to attract what one needs and desires. It will support shifting scarcity consciousness to prosperity consciousness. It is also a stone of courage another emotion that emanates from a strong and open heart. It helps one move forward on the path with heart regardless of any threats or danger. Emerald is a wonderful emtional healer allowing one to display one s compassionate, caring nature without fear of vulnerability. It is a strong heart healer and can assist the physical heart in recovering from all manner of imbalances or diseases.
Ruby stimulates the flow of life-force energy or chi through the body, strengthens one s ability to meet one s needs and manifest one s desires, and can be a catalyst for the activation of the kundalini energy. It is particularly good at attracting prosperity. Rubies eliminate feelings of hopelessness or defeat from one s thoughts, and they open the wellspring of optimism and determination needed to accomplish difficult goals. Ruby is a stone of courage. It assuages doubt and assists one in dealing with anxiety. It helps one become comfortable with the unknown and teaches one not to fear death. Ruby inspires the protective aspects of one s character. It encourages one to step forward and stand up for those who are threatened, whether they be friends, children, animals, trees, a homeless stranger or victims of war in another country. Ruby helps one to manifest the attributes of the spiritual warrior.
Blue Sapphire is a stone of mental and psychic activation, an enhancer of insight and mental agility. It assists one to see below surface appearances to underlying truths and to speak clearly and wisely. Blue sapphire is a royal stone that can be used to evoke wisdom in difficult situations. It lends discipline, strength of mind and greater learning ability. It helps one access deeper levels of consciousness, promoting a fuller understanding of self. Blue sapphire assists those who are easily swayed by the opinions of others, by becoming more secure in one s opinions and knowledge.
Silver encourages self-containment and inward reflection. It provides one with patience and perserverance and can be a window to the Soul. It supports one s efforts to go within and explore the deepest aspects of the Self and Nature. It assists one in perceiving the truth behind surface appearances. It aids one in exploring the deep inner realms of emotion and intuition. It is a favorite of those who honor the feminine aspect of nature. Silver brings attunement to the emotional self. It can assist one in embracing mystery and surrendering to the unknown. Can aid in cooling excess heat in the body and bolster the immune system s ability to fight infection.
WHAT IS THE KHANDA / ADI SHAKTI SYMBOL?
The Khanda / Adi Shakti is a symbol of infinity.
It relates to primal creative power and has three parts to its design:
The Chakra is a circle, also a symbol of infinity and reminder that God’s infinite nature, has no beginning or end. To the extent one understands the creation as a reflection of the Creator, a circle can be seen to reflect the oneness and unity of mankind in essence, regardless of apparent differences of race, religion or gender.
The central Khanda is the double-edged dagger (in center), representing the straight and narrow path of righteousness, the razor’s edge that cuts both ways – in that what you do to others you are actually doing to your Self. In yogic terms, the khanda represents neutral mind – the ability to make non-reactive decisions.
The two Kirpans are curved single-edged knives on both sides of the symbol and represent the polarities that need to be balanced by neutrality: temporal and spiritual, negative and positive, etc. In yogic terms, these two kirpans represent the negative and positive minds. Guru Hargobind (one of the founders of Sikhism) wore two swords, signifying Miri – political or temporal power, and Piri – spiritual sovereignty.
