Holding a gemstone in the left hand to receive its energy is a method of using gemstones for healing. The stone can be kept in a left side pocket, present in the aura, and cradled in the palm when needed. Another option for gemstone work and one that is very powerful is to sleep holding the needed gemstone in the left hand. Deep relaxation opens the body to accepting gemstone or healing energy, and sleeping with the stone admits a maximum amount of this. Gemstone energy and color can be magnified by holding a clear quartz crystal in the same hand with the stone. If you are not sure what you need, use the stone that you are drawn to.
