I was talking to a friend about My jewelry and she said she bought a gemstone bracelet and it didn’t do what I told her it would do. She had bought a Blue Gemstone that I said would help her Speak Her Truth. She didn’t think her thoughts were transmitted correctly to her coworkers and the gemstones could be at fault, or at least I could be blamed. Fair enough, so after a few comments about her ‘trouble‘ she was having with co-workers, I got the trouble she was really having. She was transmitting her thoughts to her co-workers and they were getting her message Loud & Clear. Except it wasn’t the message she thought she was sharing. She thought about her co-workers as less committed, less intelligent, less upward mobile, and more likely to make a ‘mistake’. She thought compared to her, they were less likely to succeed. WoW!!! I couldn’t tell her she was really sharing her true thoughts even though the words she was using sounded ‘nice’ to her and so she thought she was being mis-read, misunderstood. Her co-workers were hearing something that did not jib with her real thinking. Has this happened to you?
I remembered how many times this happened to me in the past. I had compassion on her and instead of thrashing her because she was so unenlightened I said I could exchange the bracelet she bought and she could try another gemstone. I asked her to wear a green bracelet made from Emeralds. I can hear the knowing nods out there. Ah yes green…You see Green is the color that opens the Heart. Green is the Color of the 4th or Heart Chakra. The 4th Chakra is the Path of Love. Not love as the PoP Culture defines love, but the meaning the universe whispers “You are Welcome I Am Here With You”. Not a strategy or a good plan or anything similar. It is from a place unlike the modern view of life that says life is a struggle and we better have a good plan to defend, protect, because it is a big bad world out there…You must be ready for the truth that it is and then it isn’t. We live a dual existence and we bring toward ourselves the things we think about with passion or emotion. Sounds to Hard, to ugh spiritual, too I am so bored with that. OK, fair enough. That’s why I just say wear this beautiful bracelet, think that this gemstone will open my heart, and that you want it to influence you. With just that thought and awareness you can begin the “becoming intentional” part of making the gemstone work for you. They say that once the heart is open then all the other things in life fall into place. If you want respect then you have to respect others. It sounds hard because no one has ever told you that you are responsible for your thoughts. But you are. If you are thinking things that are uncomfortable and make you unhappy, you can’t see a way out of the situation you are in, try a gemstone that is connected to an energy that you want to posses. Just make sure you start by opening your heart. And Emeralds is a very good way to start.
By the way, she kept the blue bracelet and bought the green one too. You see if you have a heart you will succeed but you can’t fake sincerity.
