The Cardinal Method, an energy healing system created by Paola Ranova, has a very unique approach to Astrology, based primarily on a combination of Sumerian and Toltec wisdom.
The focus of your birth chart bracelet is on your Higher Self and Higher Light, transcending low-vibrational patterns of the human experience.
Literally, your Cardinal Method Birth Chart Bracelet is your personal symphony.
Its main purpose is to elevate the vibrations of all energies in your Birth Chart.
The results you’ll get from this experience come from keeping your mind, feelings, and thoughts in a healthy state.
If you see this bracelet as a consciousness reminder of the Light you have within, your high vibration will lead to increased clarity, emotional balance, motivation to take inspired action and more vitality. This all contributes to your general well-being.
Your Birth Chart Bracelet is a way to visualize your soul’s state of evolution when you were born. It’s a reminder that the more you elevate your vibrations, the less vulnerable you’ll be to “the pull of gravity” and to the duality of light and shadow in our human experience.
It creates a synthesis of beautiful music in the soul, because it embraces all aspects of your being as sacred parts of you without judgment, and encourages you to be one with your Higher Self.
This bracelet creates beautiful music in your soul - your own personal silent music, which only you can hear as you connect to the stones on your wrist. It invites you to embrace all aspects of your being as sacred parts of who you are, without judgment and encourages you to come closer and merge with your Higher Self.
As part of the dualistic journey of our human experience, each zodiac sign may vibrate either in a high state or express lower vibrational frequencies. It’s up to us to elevate our vibrations so we can benefit from the Light each astrological sign and house can bring.
This means the more you keep a positive mind and purify your heart, the more you’ll benefit from the flow of life and from the best energy of signs and planets.
In Paola Ranova Spiritual Jewelry Birth Chart Bracelets, you’ll enter your Birth Chart information, and we’ll design your unique bracelet as a visualization of your soul and the sky when you were born.
The Birthstones are natural crystals representing Seeds of Life, which symbolize your best potentials.
The planets and houses are symbolized by natural crystal spheres.

Brief History of Birthstones
In Ancient Israelite History, High Priests would use stones to communicate with God. This is in biblical texts such as Exodus, which mentions the Breastplate of Aaron. This Breastplate would be worn over the Priest’s sacred garments, and it would be attached by shoulder straps at the corners, kind of like a shield, and had twelve gemstones.
Roman scholar Titus Flavius Josephus (c.37-100AD) researched the Breastplate of Aaron and listed the twelve sacred stones (which were not known as Birthstones at the time).
THE BREASTPLATE OF AARON
“It must be square – a span long and a span wide – and folded double. Then mount four rows of precious stones on it. The first row shall be Carnelian, Peridot, and Beryl; the second row shall be Turquoise, Lapis Lazuli and Emerald; the third row shall be Jacinth, Agate, and Amethyst; the fourth row shall be Topaz, Onyx, and Jasper. Mount them in gold filigree settings. There are to be twelve stones, one for each of the names of the sons of Israel, each engraved like a seal with the name of one of the twelve tribes.” Exodus 28:16-20
These are twelve gemstones mentioned in the Book of Revelations (c.69-96AD). The number twelve is important in sacred references such as the number of the sons of Israel, the signs of the Zodiac, and the months of the calendar year, for example.
In the 5th Century, St. Jerome, another Biblical scholar from the 5th Century, had his own interpretation of the twelve stones, and based on his studies created a list of birthstones that was slightly different from the Book of Revelations.
There are many other references about gemstones in history, but they’ve been associated with several different ideas as centuries go by. Various scholars, religious orders and spiritual traditions have different interpretations and propositions. There isn’t much consensus, so it’s all very subjective, and it can be a little confusing.
In 1912, for commercial reasons, the American National Jewelers’ Association compiled their own birthstone list, and it has been changed several times as new, unheard of gemstones are found and added to the list (such as Tanzanite and Spinel).
As you can see, this is a subjective topic. What we have chosen as stones to represent the planets and stars is a selection of crystals that have been tested after years of study, research and careful observation in the development of the Cardinal Method. The birthstone is chosen according to each person's individual energy after the birth chart has been generated, so your bracelet will be very unique and will not follow any general rule or protocol - it is an expression of your uniqueness alone.
We hope you love and enjoy your bracelet, and that it serves its purpose of elevating the vibrations of your zodiac houses, planets and signs - and most importantly, that it brings you Joy.
