“A blue sapphire would work best for you,” said the gemologist, as he pointed at a beauty of a blue sapphire sparkling in the glass display.
He had spent almost an hour reading through my birth chart and pointing out my strengths and challenges.
At the end of a detailed analysis and discussion, he said a blue sapphire would be one of the best gemstones for me.
I was at a point where I was keen to make some positive changes in my life.
Though I knew what kind of changes had to be made, I didn’t know how exactly to implement them. This was because I had grown up with the belief system that there is nothing much we can do by ourselves – that everything is pre-determined by forces outside of us.
But something about this belief system never resonated with me.
Yes, there are some things in life we cannot do much about but there are many other things that we certainly CAN do something about.
And saying, “It’s my destiny to suffer” for every difficulty under the sun didn’t feel good at all.
Since I didn’t know how to create a new belief system with the power of my mind alone, the best I knew back then was to take support of forces that I believed could help me change my mind – such as the blue sapphire.
And sure enough, soon after I began wearing this beauty, life began to shift.
New opportunities presented themselves.
OR maybe I began to notice opportunities that I may not have noticed before?
And because I believed I was being supported by a power bigger than any conditioning I may have absorbed and one that wanted me to be happy – I had the courage to take action steps to build a new life.
Someone had once asked me if it was the blue sapphire itself that had helped me shift my belief systems or my faith in it.
And I had replied, “A bit of both.”
I do believe gemstones have their own energy and consciousness and wearing them can bring about subtle shifts in one’s energy. However, the bigger force probably was my choosing to align with the power of the gemstone and wanting to create positive change.
Either way, I am so very grateful for this little ornament, for it was one of the very first healing instruments that supported me at a time when I most needed it.
Now I know how to harness the power of my mind and my energy to shift beliefs. But, back then, I couldn’t have done it without support from this piece of magic.
I love you, my blue sapphire!
