Gemstones for a balanced Qi

Gemstones for a balanced Qi
Gems for a balanced Qi

In its simplest terms, Qi is ‘life force energy’. This Chinese philosophy has similar concepts to the Hindu Chakra and Prana systems and Reiki from Japan. Although I would not begin to try to explain these beliefs it is based on a very basic principle that a balanced system leads to good health.

Blocked qi, lack of qi or too much qi causes illness and are traditionally treated with herbs, acupuncture, massage, Chinese medicines and gemstones to harmonize qi and to ensure well being.

People with well balanced qi can easily fight off viruses or recover quickly after an injury. They usually have good stamina, strength, digestion, and immunity, as well as rational thoughts.

Signs of an unbalanced qi are almost any medical problem, poor digestion, lack of appetite, allergies, constant flus and colds, anemia and fatigue. It can also be emotional – being quick to anger, scared easily or feeling depressed.

There are some essential lifestyle elements to a healthy qi:

  • Get enough sleep
  • Practice mindful breathing
  • Get enough exercise
  • Eat a healthy diet
  • Take care of your mental health

I addition, balanced qi is reinforced by strengthened blood flow, energy and the body as a whole.

We know gemstones can positively affect all of these elements so we have selected what we feel are the perfect crystals to address all the vital components of a smoothly flowing qi.

What is the best way to use these ten great gemstones to cultivate a thriving and balanced qi?

The way qi works within your body is best left to the experts but there are some simple methods to introduce crystals into a healthy lifestyle:

  • Qi moves around the body through meridians and gemstones can be placed on these lines to allow free and easy flow of life force energy.
  • Gemstones can be placed on the site of any pain or issue
  • Gemstones can be placed on the Chakra points
  • Elixirs made from gemstones can be drunk or dabbed on affected area
  • Ask your gemstone to help you in a specific way
  • Wear as jewelry or carry the gemstones for overall benefits
