Wearing Emerald with Rudraksha:
It is the best way to wear a combination of Gemstone and Rudraksha. Rudraksha Ratna Science Therapy® (RRST®) devised by Sakhashree Neetaji makes the use of both Emerald gemstone and Rudraksha beads. It is a holistic healing therapy that uses the curative and healing properties of both to balance and energize Chakras. In RRST we deal only with natural and untreated gemstones. The reason RRST is widely acclaimed by many is that it works on Chakras, the very basis of life and is a holistic therapy that heals from deep within, with absolutely no side effects. In RRST, the Bhasma made of the planetary herb is kept inside one tube and the metal that improves the planetary effects is kept in another tube. In the case of Emerald, Apaamaarg Bhasma and metal Bronze are used to attract the cosmic power of Mercury. The gemstone is then energized with its precise seed mantra on a specific day to empower it to eliminate all the malefic effects of the planet and reinforce its beneficial effects. Thus the gemstone becomes a powerful talisman suitable to be worn by any person irrespective of his birth chart.
Recommending a Gemstone based on RRST
During the consultation, the blocked Chakras that are causing the mental, emotional and physical issues are identified and limiting beliefs are addressed. Chakras become imbalanced when your thoughts and attitudes tend towards fears and negativity while facing challenging situations in life. Blocked Chakras manifest emotional disorders and physical ailments. You can live a successful, loved and happy life only after your blocked Chakras are activated and balanced.
As per the Chakra status and concerns of the client, a suitable combination of Gemstone and Rudraksha bead is recommended. As per the cosmic colour they emit, the gemstones work on specific Chakras. So Emerald works on Anahata (Heart) Chakra and the RRST Consultant identifies the correct finger position for drawing maximum energy from the stone. Rudraksha and Gems are powerful agents of energy and work on releasing the negative energy stored in the form of stress in the blocked Chakras, thereby activating them and tuning them to their natural state.
Anahata (Heart) Chakra
Anahata, the Heart chakra, is the seat of compassion, trust and signifies following Dharma. It gives us the ability to gain insight into the mentality and character of other beings. It is a purification station that clears the wine from the drab. Only purity can ascend to the higher centres of the head. All this happens when energy moves upwards through the body. It is the seat of the senses and governs the sense of touch and action of feeling. Thus the heart connects our physical existence with a power which comes from the universe. The purpose of Anahata Chakra is to become open to love and compassion, both to yourself and others around you. Color green of this Chakra denotes growth and renewal. When it is blocked, you fear commitments and feel as if you have to please others to be Loved. You mistrust and get hurt by others in relationships. You overly guard yourself against being hurt again.
When it is open, you are comfortable in your relationships, you are able to give and receive love easily. You feel a heartfelt sense of gratitude for how wonderful your life is. You appreciate others and feel compassion for both yourselves and others, without feeling sorry for anyone.
Hence proper functioning of all the Chakras ensures appropriate energy flow to all body parts including our vital organs. Thus Chakra cleansing and balancing is essential to enjoy good health and happiness which translates to overall abundance and wellbeing in every sphere of life. The purpose of Anahata Chakra is to develop Trust & Forgiveness. Accept but don’t expect.
