I was just wondering how it can be that some of the gems produce what can be described as "negative" effects?
For ex. I had a couple of cases when people started wearing gems and they became more aggressive or disturbed in mind. In one case a woman started to have pain all over her body. I even remember that just after putting some of the gems a significant amount of one person's money was stolen from his bank account and he started to have some serirous problems in relationships at that time.
These are just few examples that I remember to give some idea. Of course, we can say that it is a "coincidence" but all these things started happening just after people started wearing gems.
So. The question is.
If Varahamihira states that wearing different kinds of gems bring positive effects not saying anything about negative and we can even recommend gems to people without looking at their horoscope just based on their needs, problems etc.
Then where is the problem?
It is also said in the manual that the gem should not be broken, with scratches etc. - that's clear.
But I am speaking about legit gems that we can get in some normal acknowledged shops etc.
How these are sometimes giving "negative" stuff?
Do you have any idea?
I had few thoughts on this:
1)People with weak Mars can have problems during wearing gems and some other remedy should be recommended
2)Activating Dustanas can have some negative impact in life
3)If there are too many gems - especially of planets "conflicting" with each other - this can cause some problems
But these are just my assumptions.
1 - fine, but then why gems for DB Mars etc. are also prescribed, indicating, that even if one has a weak Mars, there is a gem remedy for this?
2 - fine, but we don't even need a horoscope to prescribe a gem so why would that matter so much?
3 - fine, but there is a thing called navaratna which disproves this point
So in the end I actually don't really know what can go wrong here.
Can you post the chart screenshots and gems prescribed which gave negative effects?
Ernst explained only gems worn for planets in signs which are 6,8,12 from their natal position in D1 can prove disturbing.
Gems or crystals hold the unadulterated vibration of the earth as it works with the cosmos. Wearing these gems or crystals help bring us back into that zero point.
When I use them, I find that gems or crystals try to bring out the unconscious or subconscious thoughts into light. Our patterns of behaviour are based on our unconscious or subconscious thoughts. How much people struggle to deny those thoughts cause the uncomfortable feelings and circumstances.
To give an example - If a man is unhappy at work, but has an underlying belief that he has to stay at the same job until he dies. He buys a gem to make his life better at work. The gem tries to get him to see that he needs to change his career to be happy. How much he will fight against that thought will determine how much aggression or distress he experiences. That distress or aggression, if unchecked, will carry on to other areas of his life.
The use of gems and mantras is great, but one also has to be made aware of the ‘side effects’ and the ‘why’ for which the Avasthas will be a perfect add-on.
Yes, all gems bring luck when worn, but is the luck always the luck they need? that is why i try to avoid 6/8/12 from rasi positions.
Gems can pick up negative energy and always need to be cleared. I was not feeling well once. A friend came into my office and immediately saw a huge crystal on my window sill, they said, get that out of here, its making me sick. I took it out, and felt better immediately. It was a crystal someone had given to me, who knows what it had been through. I never cleaned it, just dropped it casually on my window sill.
weak mars wont have a problem wearing a gem, t hey are just not as effective, so not the most effective remedy.
we dont need a horosocpe, but we can tell with a horoscope how effective a remedy it is base d on mars and decide on a gem from the chart instead of other ways.
navaratna is a shot gun approach. I have seen many people benefit from them, and many not get anything from them and then get more benefit from a single 50.00 gem.
Sometimes a person has a bad something coming towards them and a part of them knows they need a gem, they get a gem, something bad happens. would it have been worse had they not had the gem? or was it the gem itself? I think it would have been worse had they not had the gem. Gems reduce trouble, they don't erase it all.
Thanks to all for the comments.
It was very interesting to read and there are some good points to contemplate about.
