Ruby Gemstones: Properties, Benefits and Healing Powers
Ruby or Manik Gemstone is a naturally occurring Gemstone, which is a variety of the mineral corundum (aluminum oxide). In terms of chemistry, Manik Gemstone is a mixture of Aluminum, Oxygen, Iron and Chromium. The presence of chromium in the Ruby Stones structure gives its natural colour ranging from pink to blood red.

Wearing Ruby Gemstone 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 Ruby 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 of a gemstone, as a ring or as a pendent, the bhasm made of the planetary herb is kept inside one tube and the metal that improves the planetary effects, is kept in another tube. In case of Ruby, Ark Bhasm and metal Tin are used to attract the cosmic power of Sun. 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. It is only after blocked Chakras are balanced and activated that you can transform your life of suffering, obstacles, and confusions into love, success, and happiness. 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 Ruby Gemstone works on Manipur 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.
Mani means ‘’jewel‟ and pura means ‘’city‟. Hence Manipura literally means city of jewels‟. Manipura is the reservoir where prana (life energy) is collected, accumulated and then transported to those areas of the body that needs vital energy. Manipura is also the transformer of thoughts into actions. It not only absorbs prana energy from the environment but also from people. This is where we pick up good or bad vibes from other people. This is the seat of the mind. It governs the sense of sight and denotes action. Manipura gives us insight into the role, abilities and talents of other living beings. In Manipura we learn to control and master our sense impressions. We also learn to eliminate illusions, fantasies and unwanted impressions/energies.
When Manipur Chakra is blocked / imbalanced, you feel like a victim and often feel powerless. You also suffer from low self-respect and a sense of victimisation. You have a tendency to give away your powers to others, as you feel it is necessary to keep peace in relationships.
When Manipur Chakra is open, you have a strong sense of your own power and how to use it in a healthy way. You admire others with power and influence and choose to emulate people who are using their personal power to make a difference in the world. You want to use your power and influence for good in the world. Hence proper functioning of all the chakras ensure 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 Manipur Chakra is to make you get established in your consciousness, develop personal power and believe in your opinions.
