Gemstone Pharmacy News

The Pharmacy Welcomes the Arrival of Lavender Light!
Here at Gemisphere, providing only therapeutic-quality gemstones is both our mission and our challenge. For several years now, obtaining a steady supply of therapeutic Sodalight has fallen into the category of “challenge!” It is therefore my pleasure to announce that Sodalight is returning to Gemisphere’s pharmacy. This month, it comes in the form of our Lavender Light necklace, a potent combination of Sodalight spheres, Lavender cylinders, and 14-karat gold beads.

Lavender Light clear away mental clouds that limit one’s perception of higher truth. You can benefit from wearing a Lavender Light necklace if you notice that you are feeling self-critical or indecisive. I also recommend a Lavender Light therapy, which I’ve been performing regularly on myself, called “Releasing Tension in the Neck, Shoulders, and Head.” In addition to helping the upper body let go of any extra tension it is carrying, this therapy is one of the strongest, most effective methods available for integrating the physical body. For instructions on how to perform this Lavender Light therapy, click here.

Next Week’s Gem of the Week
To celebrate its arrival, we'll be making Lavender Light our Gem of the Week next week! From July 16 – 22, you’ll be able to purchase Lavender Light at 20% off its regular price.

To order Lavender Light, you can call us at 800-727-8877 or click here.

Workshop Participants Report a Transforming Experience
On June 8th – 12th, 2005, gemstone users gathered at Still Meadow Retreat Center in the Oregon woodlands for the new advanced workshop, Mental Mastery and Expansion of Consciousness. Dr. Ada González led a group of 21 participants from all over the U.S. in deeply exploring the energy and effects of six therapeutic gemstones. Together they experienced how to harness the mind for true clarity and focus and how to become clearer channels for spiritual energy and awareness. Dr. Linda Lile provided each participant with a full-spectrum color ray reading, and Michael Katz conducted a dynamic two-hour Q&A session.

The four-day workshop was a powerful experience for everyone. Participants had a chance to deepen their understanding and confidence in working with gemstones for their own personal healing and for performing gem therapies on others. Thirty in-depth therapies were performed or demonstrated, making the workshop a powerful and fun hands-on experience. Some favorites included Spiritual Development Technique with Amethyst, Blue Ray Infusion with Blue Sapphire, Positive Emotion Technique with Sodalight, and Acceleration of Healing with Purple Rainbow Fluorite.

Here's what some participants had to say:

“The workshop gave me so much more appreciation and understanding of these wonderful, miraculous gemstones. They are such gifts to us. The lectures were fun and informative, and the atmosphere was very conducive to healing and learning. Thank you!”

K.H., California

“I really enjoyed the workshop and am blown away by the power of the gemstones. It’s really opened me up to another world. Thanks to Dr. Ada for her eloquence and insights, good humor and knowledge!”

V.P., Oregon

“I was especially thankful for hands-on practice. The guided visualizations were also a great way to open and connect to the energy of the gemstones.”

M.P., Virginia

“The therapy practice sessions were so much fun -- fascinating, powerful, and healing.”

J.S., Oregon

“Everything was perfect and presented with good humor. I feel very blessed and grateful for having attended.”

M.S., Illinois

Gemstone Tip of the Month

Practicing Presence
When we work with therapeutic gemstones, we can greatly enhance their effects by consciously cooperating with the process of change initiated by the gems. We call this practicing presence. Presence is the quality of being fully in the moment, when the mind is not divided thinking about other things.

When you put on a new necklace or one you haven’t worn for a while, bring it into your aura with a ritual that will enhance your connection with it:

  1. Gaze into the necklace. Allow its color and energy to enter your being through your eyes. Drink in its essence with your eyes.
  2. Open your heart and all aspects of yourself to the gemstones' energy. Welcome it. Acknowledge your willingness to change and to accept the process of release.
  3. Introduce it to your body by touching it to the three windows on the body for a few seconds each:
    • The navel
    • Acupuncture point SP 21 on the left side only (at nipple level under the armpit)
    • Acupuncture point CV 21 (1.5 inches below the throat notch in the upper breastbone)
  4. Then hold the necklace about 12 inches in front of your chest and slowly bring the necklace to your heart. As you do, energetically breathe it in. Then hold it for a moment on your heart, and let in its energy even more deeply. Spend a moment receiving it in gratitude.
  5. Place the necklace around your neck.
  6. Keep it in your aura constantly, no more than three feet from your physical body.
  7. Cleanse it regularly!
