1. Wearing jewellery – An introduction

Many people of various cultures wear jewellery on a daily basis and some jewellery can carry significant meaning, e.g. if it is an heirloom passed on within the family. While we often think of women wearing jewellery, it is also common for men to wear rings and bracelets. When we look back in history, we can see that various types of jewellery made of different metals and gems have been worn by people of different civilisations. We were curious as to why people wear jewellery and whether people wear jewellery for reasons other than the aesthetic appeal.

At SSRF (Spiritual Science Research Foundation) they have conducted spiritual research which revealed that a person can obtain spiritual benefit from wearing jewellery. These benefits include allowing the person to imbibe Divine consciousness (Chaitanya), reducing the black energy in the body, giving protection from attacks of negative energies (ghosts, demons, devils etc.) as well as spiritual healing through acupressure therapy.

2. Drawings based on subtle-knowledge of the spiritual effect of wearing jewellery

The following drawings based on subtle-knowledge have been drawn by seekers of SSRF using advanced sixth sense.

Seekers of SSRF from the subtle-department have the ability to see into the subtle and create drawings based on subtle-knowledge as part of their spiritual practice and service unto the Absolute Truth (satsēvā) . The drawings based on subtle-knowledge are then verified by His Holiness Dr. Athavale for accuracy.

The drawings based on subtle-knowledge show the effect of wearing different types of jewellery including a gold ring, earrings, gold chain, copper bracelet, and friendship bracelet.

2.1 Drawing based on subtle-knowledge of wearing jewellery (a gold ring) on the ring finger

From this drawing based on subtle-knowledge we can understand the following points:

  • By wearing a gold ring on the ring finger, Divine consciousness is attracted, activated and emitted from the ring. Divine Energy (Shakti) is also activated and emitted from the gold ring.
  • The Divine consciousness in the ring creates a pressure on the finger that enables acupressure to take place. This eliminates obstacles in the form of black energy and the finger receives Divine consciousness.
  • It is most beneficial to wear the ring on the ring finger, followed by the middle finger. For spiritual benefit, women can wear rings on the left hand while men can wear rings on the right hand.

2.2 Drawing based on subtle-knowledge of wearing earrings

From this drawing based on subtle-knowledge  we can understand the following points:

  • By wearing sāttvik earrings, the Divine Principle is attracted and emitted from the earring.
  • A flow of Bliss (Ānand) is attracted to the earring and particles of Bliss are emitted from it.
  • Divine consciousness is attracted and spread throughout the body and environment.

2.3 Drawing based on subtle-knowledge of wearing jewellery around the neck

From this drawing based on subtle-knowledge  we can understand the following points:

  • By wearing a gold chain around the neck, Divine consciousness enriched waves of the Absolute Fire Principle (Tējtattva) are attracted and emitted into the environment.
  • The Raja-Tama particles in the surrounding environment of the person wearing the gold chain get destroyed.
  • Fighting spirit (kshātrabhav) is generated within the person due to the creation of the Absolute Fire Principle. Fighting spirit is an important quality for a seeker to have to sustain their spiritual practice and fight against negative energies (ghosts, demons, devils etc.).

2.4 Drawing based on subtle-knowledge of wearing jewellery on the wrist

Wearing jewelry - copper bracelet

From this drawing based on subtle-knowledge  we can understand the following points:

  • Divine consciousness is attracted, activated and emitted from the copper bracelet. A protective ring of Divine consciousness is also created around the hand.
  • The Principle of the Sun Deity is attracted, activated and emitted from the copper bracelet.
  • Saviour energy is also activated and emitted from the hand.

2.5 Drawing based on subtle-knowledge of wearing a friendship bracelet

From this drawing based on subtle-knowledge  we can understand the following points:

  • Spiral rings of emotion are created and activated from wearing a friendship bracelet. Particles of emotion are also emitted into the surrounding environment.
  • There is an emission of energy of attraction as well as Illusory energy around the hand. The Illusory energy creates a pleasant feeling within the person that wears or looks at the bracelet even though the vibrations emitting from it are negative.
  • Particles of black energy are emitted within the body of the person wearing the bracelet as well as into the surrounding environment.

3. Wearing jewellery of different materials

3.1 The type of metal used

The type of metal that is used to create the jewellery is important in determining how much spiritual benefit the person wearing the jewellery can imbibe. The table below explains the proportion of Divine consciousness that is found in each type of metal. The most sattvik metal is gold followed by silver.

Wearing jewelry - Proportion of Divine consciousness as per material

As per spiritual science, jewellery worn above the waist should be gold to protect from stronger negative energies (ghosts, devils, demons etc.). The gold augments the Absolute Fire Principle that enables thechakras above the waist to absorb positive energies.

Jewellery worn below the waist should be silver to protect from lower level negative energies (ghosts, devils, demons etc.). Silver has the ability to imbibe the Rajapredominant waves of desire.

3.2 The type of gem used

Gems like diamond, ruby, sapphire, coral, and emerald that are embedded in jewellery have a spiritually beneficial effect on us. The subtle-rays coming from the Sun, Moon and other celestial bodies are reflected from these gems based on the principles they attract.

The following table explains the benefits according to each gem.

Type of gem Effect on the person
Ruby Provides protection and energy to the gross body (sthūladēha)
Diamond Purifies the gross and mental body (manodēha). It is associated with the Absolute Fire Principle.
Coral Kindles the Divine consciousness in the body in the form of vital energy (Prāṇa-shakti). It increases enthusiasm in the person to perform various activities.
Pearl Enables the person to have more alertness and joyous nature due to continuously activating Divine consciousness in the body. It is associated with the Absolute Water Principle (Āpatattva).
Emerald Keeps consistency in the unmanifest ̣ Divine Energy Principle.

When the jewellery contains sattvik metals or gems, divinity is attracted towards them with the help of the five Cosmic Principles (Panchatattva). The spiritual emotion (bhāv) of the person towards the jewellery that is worn is helpful in getting maximum benefit from it.

4. Wearing jewellery of different designs

When we look through a jewellery catalogue, the number of the various designs, shapes and patterns are astounding. Often we base our choice of jewellery on aesthetic appeal, but from a spiritual perspective there are other factors we can keep in mind.

The design of jewellery can either be sattvik or tāmasikSattvik designs emit positive energy and impart feelings of Bliss. Often they are round or petal shaped. Tamasik designs emit negative vibrations. These negative vibrations can have detrimental effects on the person’s health by affecting the chakras of the body.

The following is an example of a gold chain with a sattvik design and another with a tamasik design:

Sattvik design of jewellery Tamasik design of jewellery

From these examples we can see the importance of choosing jewellery based on spiritual principles and not based on aesthetic appearance. When selecting jewellery we can try to perceive the subtle-vibrations that emit from it through a subtle-reading. It is best to perform the subtle-reading after chanting the Name of God for a few minutes so the mind can achieve concentration.

5. Purification of jewellery

Black energy : The primary weapon used by negative energies is black energy which is a spiritual energy capable of manipulating any process on the Earth plane. The extent of this manipulation depends on the strength of the attacking negative energy.

The jewellery that we wear is effective in protecting us from the attacks of negative energies (ghosts, demons, devils etc.). When negative energies (ghosts, demons, devils etc.) try to attack us with their black energy, they first attack the jewellery that we wear before affecting us directly. Due to this, it is important to regularly purify the jewellery we wear to remove the black energy.

There are various ways that we can spiritually purify jewellery using the five Cosmic Principles.

Absolute Fire Principle: Holy ash (Vibhūti)  from SSRF incense-sticks can be applied to the jewellery from all sides.
Absolute Air Principle (Vāyutattva): blow holy ash from SSRF incense-sticks on the jewellery or allow the smoke of the incense-sticks to touch them.

Absolute Ether Principle (Ākāshtattva): keep the ornaments in an empty box for some time.

6. Wearing jewellery – a spiritual perspective

From this article we explained how we can derive spiritual benefit from wearing jewellery made of sattvik material and of sattvik designs. The Divine consciousness that is imbibed by wearing sattvik jewellery helps us in our spiritual practice by allowing us to have continuous access to Divine energy. As our spiritual practice increases, the necessity of wearing jewellery decreases as we are able to attain sāttviktā and spiritual energy from our spiritual practice.

The various types of jewellery that we wear are associated with specific parts of the body. Each part of the body is associated with a specific chakra. Divine consciousness that is activated around the body where the jewellery is worn purifies and awakens the chakra associated with that part of the body. For example if the chakra at the heart region (Anāhat-chakra)  is awakened then spiritual emotion towards God is awakened.

Another benefit to wearing jewellery includes receiving the benefit of acupressure therapy. Acupressure points in the body where the jewellery is worn are also pressed. This results in the removal of black energy in the body and enables Divine consciousness to flow freely. Physical, psychological, and spiritual distress can be alleviated through acupressure therapy.

7. In summary

  • Wearing jewellery allows us to imbibe Divine energy, protects us from negative energies (ghosts, demons, devils etc.) and performs spiritual healing.
  • The jewellery that we wear should be made of sattvik material and be of sattvik designs.
  • By performing regular spiritual practice on a daily basis, we begin to grow spiritually and generate sattvik vibrations or spiritual energy within usThe necessity to wear jewellery to imbibe sattvikta then reduces.
