Gemstones: How to Use Colors and Stones to Achieve Your Goals

1. Your new book is The Essential Guide to Crystals, Minerals and Stones. What inspired you to write on this topic?

Margaret Ann Lembo

Crystals and gemstones have been near and dear to my heart for over three decades. The world of gems is my business because I am a New Age retailer, spiritual entrepreneur, and a book seller. These stones are tools to awaken consciousness especially when paired with a positive thought or intention. Understanding color, chakras, and basic Universal Laws provides a key to creating a charmed life with the power of purpose and belief.

My customers taught me that gemstones are also oracles to know yourself better. Shoppers continue to ask me for a stone to find them a boyfriend; after we chuckle about it, I direct them to the shelves of tumbled stones. I say to them, "Pick some stones you are naturally drawn to and don't read the little tags that identify and describe them. Then show me what you've chosen."

Sure enough, the stones they chose were exactly what they needed. For example, an automatic response to the boyfriend question might be rose quartz and green aventurine. Yet, when leaving a customer to their own guidance and intuition, many chose an amazonite and citrine stone. The amazonite told me that they need know their own truth and then be able to live it and speak up for themselves, instead of becoming a follower. The citrine amplifies self-esteem and the ability to set boundaries. You bet the customer understood that these stones are better suited to aiding them in realigning to attract the right mate.

2. Your previous book is Chakra Awakening, which also mentions the use of various crystals and gemstones for healing. Besides chakra healing, what uses do crystals, minerals, and stones have?

The Throat Chakra—A Psychic Powerhouse
by Anysia Kiel

Because it houses our clairvoyant abilities, people often identify the brow, or third-eye, chakra as our bodies' main psychic center. This is incorrect; indeed, the throat chakra, which houses the abilities of clairaudience, clairscent, and clairgustance, is the true psychic center of the body. Anysia Kiel, author of Discovering the Medium Within, discusses these psychic abilities and the importance of a balanced and empowered throat chakra.
