Shared / Eve's Addiction

Many people don't know the crucial role a birthstone can play in their life.

Remember this, everything around us is made up of star dust. That being said, there are certain energies stored in stones that are associated with a particular month.

My mother bought me a small sapphire pendant when I was a kid, and I haven't taken it off since. People have always called me lucky, but I think it has more to do with being able to sense the energies around me.

Here's how to unleash the hidden power of your birthstone. Trust me, you don't have to wait too long until you reap the benefits of the stone.
