Have you noticed that when our friends laugh, irrespective of whether
or not we have understood the joke they are laughing at, we tend
to laugh with them? However, we may not be inclined to join the
laughter of a stranger sitting next to our table in a restaurant.
Ever wondered why it is so? The infectious laughter occurs because
of our resonant empathy (common resonance frequency) with our friends.
In simpler terms, our friends are on the same 'wavelength' as us.
Similarly, when we pray, we send out appreciation, or a request
for some quality to be improved, or a situation to learn from and,
at times, we are amazed at how wonderfully the universal intelligence
responds. However, look at it in perspective, and things will fall
in place. What are we doing when we pray? We are actually resonating
with the abundance of divine love and goodwill that is readily available
to everyone, and our prayers act as channels through which the love
and goodwill flow to our near ones and us.
Did you know that Prince Charles speaks to plants, and that plants
respond by bending and other ways? It is all a matter of flow of
energy from the endearing one to the plants. Those who practice
positive affirmations like chanting of mantras will testify the
wonderful results of such exercises on the body, mind, and spirit.
Now, take a step further back, and let's move on from smaller things
to the huge celestial bodies. Isn't it true that moon's major phases
have such strong effects that we are consciously able to experience
them? Sunspots, although of minor astrological significance, have
also been shown to significantly affect us. Thus, the basis of all
our problems in life lies in our receptivity (resonance) . As our
receptivity can either be negative or positive, reactive or proactive,
we must strive to become magnets that attract only the positive
aspects. We must increase the positive aspect of our receptivity.
Likewise, we can benefit from the invisible influences if we received
the correct blend of radiation that is helpful to our particular
electromagnetic 'signature' (corresponding to our karmic weaknesses
and strengths). The real significance of karma is not in what happens
to us, but in how we react to it. And the greatest challenge of
life is to react to events in a positive way. This is where gems
come into action. When one wears the right kind of gems, they produce
helpful electromagnetic rays.
We, as human beings, receive vital rays - subtle cosmic radiation
from planets that influence our attitudes, behaviour, and environment.
This planetary radiation has a definite impact on our ever-changing
psychological dispositions. Stones and gems, coming in direct contact
with the skin, exercise an electromagnetic influence over cells.
Man's body contains carbon and various metallic elements that are
also present in plants, metals, and jewels. Man is very sensitive
to E-M radiation. If a person's astrological chart shows that his
or her receptivity to beneficial planetary radiation is weak or
out of balance, it can be rectified and strengthened by the natural
electromagnetic radiation emanating from specific, correlative gems.
Just as we need vitamins and minerals to meet our physical requirements,
we can also utilise different forms of invisible energy to stimulate
and aid our mental, spiritual, and physical dispositions.
