Healing with Sacred Stones

Edgar Cayce's Sacred StonesHow and Why Gem Healing Works

By Shelley Kaehr, PhD

Excerpted from Edgar Cayce’s Sacred Stones

Everything in the universe consists of vibrations, and this idea is highlighted in much of the Edgar Cayce material…

Gems and stones, along with music, essential oils, and other wonderful tools that we have at our disposal, are very beneficial for realigning us with our natural healthy vibrational balance.

Gem healing is like music. Have you ever heard people trying to play music when it is out of tune?  There is something off, and it doesn’t sound quite right.  That is what happens to the body—the physical body, as well as the energetic body. On the contrary, when you hear singing or playing that is harmonious, it lifts the spirit as though the heavens have parted.

When a guitar is off tune, the guitarist must strum a note and adjust the strings to bring the whole instrument back into harmony. We are similar.  The influences of other people, daily stress, environmental toxins, and more add up until we become out of harmony with our blueprint of perfection, which is how we feel when we are in perfect alignment.

We can get back on track. As I recently experienced, sometimes all it takes is slowing down.  However, if we don’t stop and listen to our bodies long enough to take the proper steps to realign, we might develop some unhealthy discomfort or dis-ease.

I am extremely concerned about the idea of frequency sickness.  Our society is often so plugged into phones, computers, televisions, and other devices that we have become out of sync with nature.  This is not good!

During those few days when I was ill, I could not stand the sight of any screens or loud sounds.  I was literally sick of anything electronic.  I had to unplug.  I am a very sensitive person, and I am greatly concerned about the masses that may be unaware of what electronics are doing to us.  I certainly believe that technology has been a blessing to society in many ways.  Communication has become more accessible, but on the other side of the coin, various health issues are arising. As they continue to emerge, I believe we will see more ramifications in the future.

Now more than ever, it is extremely beneficial to understand Cayce’s work and to learn how to use natural methods to shift our energy when necessary.

Subtle Bodies

Aside from the physical body, there are three areas of energy within all of us.  Actually, there is just one big energy field, but I like to break it down in order to work with it more easily.

The first is the etheric energy layer.  This is the field that resides closest to your physical body and is most intricately tied to your health and well-being. If you are blocked here, it will result in an actual, physical illness.

Second is the mental or emotional body, which is six inches away from the body.  This is where our memories and emotions are stored.  When we do not adequately express our emotions, this area is affected.

Finally, the causal or spiritual body is about a foot away from your physical body and extends to infinity.  I believe that all of our challenges in life begin here. Some challenges derive from karma that we incarnated here to work on, and some challenges are new lessons that we have decided to take on after our birth.  If we can address our issues at this level, then we do not need to be concerned with the emotional aspects or physical aspects of our energy bodies.  That is easier said than done, of course! As my story about being ill demonstrates, we do not normally make changes unless there is mental or physical discomfort first.

When you place a stone on your body, that mineral exists at a higher vibrational frequency than that of the body. Because it is natural and free from the mental or emotional garbage that affects the rest of us, the stone holds its own. When introduced to the physical shell, it will create a change in the above-mentioned energy fields.

Different stones bring different qualities to us.  Do you need love, health, or money/security?  Depending on what you want to create, certain stones hold a frequency for those circumstances or attributes. By using the stones, your field can begin to shift and align in order for you to attract what you want.  We will explore how this energy shift works throughout this book.


The other way gems work is to align us with the frequencies of colors in the rainbow spectrum as well as the colorful energy centers of light within each one of us.

Crown chakra:

Color – white

Location – top of the head

The crown center connects you to your higher power.  If this area is blocked, you will feel disconnected from life and depressed.  Clear crystals are best to help open your crown.

Third Eye chakra:

Color – violet

Location – center of the forehead

The third eye is the seat of your intuition.  Amethyst, which we will discuss later in the book, is a carrier of the violet ray and will help to open this center.

Throat chakra:

Color – blue

Location – under the Adam’s apple, just above the collarbone

The throat center helps us to speak our truth.  Sapphire is a carrier of the blue ray and will help to open this center.  There will be an entire section about sapphire later in this book.

Heart chakra:

Color – green or pink

Location – near your physical heart, in the middle of the chest

Society has many heart issues that are both physical and spiritual.  Learning to love others and ourselves is the key for this energy center.  You can use rose quartz or emerald to assist in opening the heart.  There will be more on emerald, the carrier of the green ray, later in the book.

Solar Plexus Chakra:

Color – yellow

Location – stomach, at the convergence of the ribcage

The solar plexus chakra is the seat of your personal power and material abundance, representing courage and manifestation on the physical plane.  Citrine is the carrier of the yellow ray.  Citrine is amethyst that has been heated up by either natural sunlight or, in many cases, artificial means.  A wonderful stone, citrine never needs to be cleansed as most other stones do. It is very good to use for opening up all of the chakra centers, and it will energize you.  A delightful by-product of citrine is that it will bring cash and money into your life (there is a difference between “abundance” and money).  Known as the “Merchant’s Stone,” citrine will stimulate growth when you put it in your cash register or wallet.

Sacral chakra:

Color – orange

Location – two inches below the navel

The sacral center is about creativity and productivity in the world at large.  Carnelian is a carrier of the orange ray and beneficial to use on this area.  More is written about carnelian later in the book.

Root chakra:

Color – red

Location – base of the spine

The root chakra helps connect you to the earth, grounding you in the physical body.  Ruby is the carrier of the red ray and is wonderful to use for grounding.  A remarkable healer, we will explore ruby at length in a later section.

Note: This is an excerpt from Edgar Cayce’s Sacred Stones.

Shelley Kaehr, PhDShelley Kaehr, PhD, a native of Albuquerque, New Mexico, became widely known as one of the world’s leading authorities on energy healing and mind-body medicine by using gems and minerals with her hypnosis clients. She believes our memories are stored holographically in the energetic fields surrounding our bodies, and by combining hypnosis with healing work, lasting change is achieved. She has been featured on Coast to Coast AM, Canada’s X-Zone and William Shatner’s Weird or What, and truly believes that everyone can leave the past behind to live happier lives. Shelley received her Ph.D. from the American Institute of Holistic Theology in 2001, and lives near Dallas, Texas. She is also the author of Edgar Cayce’s Guide to Gemstones, Minerals, Metals and More.

    Does it matter how expensive the crystal costs? Or is the color the most important point for purchase? I’m new to this and don’t want to waste my money by buying too cheap or too expensive. Please advise. THANK YOU.

    • Hi Charley,
      Regarding whether or not it matters how expensive crystals are, the answer is no. The cost is not a factor. Only the energy matters. If you see something you love and it costs a dollar, that’s great! Likewise, you may fall in love with a stone that is quite expensive, and if you’re like me, sometimes you can’t live without it!
      I like to compare this to buying clothes. You purchase things you like that fit you and you use them for some period of time and then you move on. The stones will affect your frequency and once that change is made, you may decide to move to something else.
      Thanks for the note and have an awesome day!

    Thank you so much for such an informative, easy to read synopsis. For whatever reason (I choose not to analyse why this may be so) I’m intrigued to study further this subject, and will purchase a copy of your book. Thank you.

    I am very interested in learning more about healing with gemstones. Will you be in the Kansas City area in the future?

  4. Ellen says:

    I still do not understand how and why gem healing works.

    • Hi Ellen,
      Basically, we have a certain frequency, stones have a different frequency, so when you hold stones, wear them, place them on the body, their energy begins to shift your energy and when that happens, a shift or healing occurs.
      I hope that helps! If not, feel free to write me again or pop over to my page on Facebook at Past Life Lady.

      Have a great day!
