SAPPHIRE - THE GEMSTONE OF CLARITY
All matter has its own energy of frequency. Most gem stones and precious minerals vibrate at a higher frequency thus, emitting positive vibrations which can resonate throughout the body, a basic principal of quantum physics.
Many gemstones have a specific resonancy or harmony which responds with particular points of the anatomy.
Sapphire, a universal stone, is considered to be a stone of purity and clarity. "The sapphire is affiliated with the solarplexus and pituitary chakra, and is thought to stimulate the regeneration of intestinal tract, stomach, pituitary gland, heart and kidneys." (Gurudas 154)
"According to Buddhist tradition, sapphire stimulates a desire for prayer, devotion, spiritual enlightenment, and inner peace." (Gurudas 154) It is considered to be the link between the mind, body and spirit, promoting self-clarity and inspiration.
själ uses a sapphire gem elixir in the cela intuitif, kura intuitif and serum 1.

HIDDEN MESSAGES OF WATER by Dr. Masaru Emoto
Dr. Masaru Emoto studies the relationship between water, its environment and influences and the affects they have on each individual molecule.
Dr. Emoto writes that water is able to memorize and transport information. He demonstrates this by photographing frozen water crystals to reveal their changes to various chosen mediums including music, images, thoughts and words.
Dr. Emoto says, "The vibration of good words has a positive effect on our world whereas the vibration from negative words has the power to destroy." (Masaru Emoto, The Hidden Messages in Water, XXV)
The result are impressive. See for yourself...
