The mind is a very powerful resource. Some people argue that we only use ten percent of our brains capacity, while others argue that we use virtually every part of the brain. Barry Gordon at Johns Hopkins School of Medicine in Baltimore, USA suggests that our brain represents three percent of the body's weight but uses twenty percent of the body's energy.
Our brains therefore require a significant amount of energy to function correctly. It is reasonable to argue that if we starve our brains of energy, our conscious, unconscious and subconscious activities will deteriorate. Equally, if we ensure our brain has sufficient energy, or even an abundance of energy supplied to it, its performance will exceed our expectations. This is partly the theory behind spiritual and esoteric healing; the Chakra and Reiki believes; positive energy improves people’s lives.
It is understood that most of the energy consumed by the brain is for rapid firing of millions of communication neurons. Scientists believe this neuronal firing and communication gives rise to all of the brain's higher functions. The rest of its energy is used for controlling other activities; both unconscious activities, such as heart rate, and conscious ones, such as driving a car.
John Henley, a neurologist at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester USA suggests that even in sleep, areas of the brain such as the frontal cortex, which controls things like higher level thinking and self-awareness, or the somatosensory areas, which help people sense their surroundings, are active.
Again, this gets us back to spiritual and esoteric healing; some people believe in Astral travel and have experienced such events. This may be attributable to the brains neuronal firing; working in its higher function activity. People facilitate this higher function activity with the use of gemstones and crystals.
Whilst some minerals such as Labradorite gemstones and Orange River Quartz gemstones are aesthetically pleasing, Melody, a mathematician and scientist from the USA, suggests that certain minerals such as Blue Obsidian, Papagoite, Rutilated Quartz, Ruby and Blue Sapphire help facilitate Astral travel. The UK Company, www.gaealimited.com, are pioneers at supplying faceted these minerals for this very reason.
Alan Roddis, Managing Director of G.A.E.A. Limited says, "It is understood that a faceted GAEA gemstone helps to improve the energy dispersion from the mineral. This is believed to help the spiritual and esoteric healing processes as well as Astral travel and other metaphysical processes".
The brain also affects a person’s self-awareness and again, GAEA gemstones help to develop and improve this both physically; because the gemstones and jewelry are beautiful and desirable therefore improving ones self-esteem, and also metaphysically; due to the science behind gemstone vibrations. If one believes, as Melody, that each type of mineral vibrates to a different number because of energy within the crystal or gemstone, then it is reasonable to believe that appropriately tuning this energy in synchronisation with ones body and mental energy is viable. This gemstone tuning can therefore help to reduce negativity, distress, sadness and illness in favour of abundance of positive energy, strong self-esteem and good health. www.gaealimited.com
G.A.E.A. Limited specialises in the faceting rare and unique precious gemstones and crystals
We have been in the jewellery manufacturing business since 1984 and gemstone and diamond production since 1989
Our expertise is faceting specimen rough gemstones and crystals. Each and every gemstone in our premier collection is uniquely faceted; a one of a kind and the only one in existence
There are not many materials which we will not custom facet for that special occasion or purpose. We have faceted all types of materials from Gallstones to Emeralds
The faceting process starts with the selection of the right rough. The gemstone rough must have specific qualities in order for a quality of the final product to be created
We examine rough for clarity and colour and in the case of “healing stones” look to enhance it to it’s maximum effect.
