Those who lack logic, rational thinking and positive outlook should wear a Green Jade in order to nullify the malefic of Mercury.

WEARING GREEN JADES WITH RUDRAKSHA
Wearing a combination of Gemstone and Rudraksha is the best way to make the most of it. Rudraksha Ratna Science Therapy® (RRST®) devised by Neeta Singhal makes the use of both Green Jade Gemstone and Rudraksha beads. It is a holistic healing therapy that uses the curative and healing properties of Rudraksha and Gemstones to balance and energize Chakras. In RRST, we deal only with natural and un-treated gemstones. The reason Rudraksha Ratna Science Therapy 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, setting a gemstone in a ring or in a pendant is done by placing the bhasm made of the planetary herb inside one tube and the metal that improves the planetary effects in another tube. In case of Green Jades, Apaamaarg Bhasm 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 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 when 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 color they emit, the gemstones work on specific Chakras. So Green Jade 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 of Dharma. It gives us the ability to gain insight in the mentality and character of other beings. With it we are able to feel the warmth and cold emanating from other people. 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 Anahata Chakra is blocked, you fear commitments and feel as if you have to please others to be loved. You mistrust and hurt by others in relationships. You overly guard yourself from being hurt again.
When Anahata Chakra is open, you are comfortable in your relationships, you are able to give and receive love easily. A heartfelt gratitude is sensed by you for how delightful 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 spheres of life. The purpose of Anahata Chakra is to develop Trust & Forgiveness. Accept but don’t expect.
