JASPER - The Supreme Nurturer and Rain Bringer
An elemental Earth stone, Jasper’s frequency is slow and constant, aligned with the electromagnetic energies of the planet. It enables one to be more present in the physical body and conscious of Nature and one’s surroundings. It encourages one to celebrate moments of isolation to absorb, reflect, and connect with these energies and enkindles an awareness of the spiritual connection we hold with all living things.
Jasper is a stone of grounding and stability, providing comfort and security, strength and healing. Its presence balances the aura to a level of wholeness and peace, and acts as a reminder that one is not here on the physical plane simply for oneself, but to bring joy and substance to others.
Wear or carry Jasper to alleviate stress and induce tranquility. Its cleansing effect eliminates negative energy and stabilizes the aura. It makes an ideal worry or rubbing stone for soothing the nerves and increasing one’s focus, and is a wonderful stone for banishing nightmares or harmful thoughts.
Jasper is superb for healing and sustaining the physical and emotional bodies during injury, prolonged illness or hospitalization. Its Earth energies bring gradual strength and renewed vitality, while helping one to understand and endure these frustrating or painful experiences.
Jasper makes an excellent diet stone, lending emotional support and strength in self-discipline, as well as boosting physical energy levels. Its slow, steady vibration helps avoid extremes and encourages perseverance. It is also useful for long periods of fasting.
Jasper is a remarkable talisman for cutting down or quitting smoking, and may assist in reducing one’s over-consumption of alcohol. It removes harmful toxins from the system over time, and helps release the emotional triggers that perpetuate the behavior.
Jasper is considered highly restorative for tissue deterioration of the internal organs, and useful in treating disorders of the kidneys, spleen, bladder, liver and stomach. It may also aid in balancing mineral content and regulating supplies of iron, sulfur, zinc, and manganese within the body.
Jasper water is soothing for the digestive system, and is particularly useful as a gem elixir because it does not over stimulate the body. It may be made by the indirect method, or by letting the stone soak in demineralized water overnight.
Jasper is beneficial in staunching blood flow, particularly nosebleeds, and also assists in reducing hemorrhoids. It soothes epilepsy and gout, and may be used to treat the sensory loss of smell.
Known as “Rain Bringer,” Jasper has been revered since ancient and medieval times as a divining stone of “tempestaries,” magical masters of the wind and rain, called upon in secret to save harvests in periods of drought, or to save ships from violent storms. Green and Brown Jaspers were considered the most powerful for this purpose. Jasper was also used by the Native American Indians for dowsing the land for water, and Red Jasper was especially helpful in increasing the searcher’s sensitivity to the Earth. Jasper with blue color is used to connect with the after worlds.
Bold Red Jasper - Stone of Endurance
You cannot ignore it. Unlike most jasper which is a heavily banded variety of Chalcedony, brick Red Jasper is almost one pure color. That color is red: the color of fire, the color of passion, the color of bold, unmitigated determination and stamina. Red jasper has long been highly popular for men's jewelry, but women love it too--especially now that red, at long last, is again in fashion. For a dazzling duo, mix red jasper beads with round silver beads spaced between them. (Try four-six Red Jasper beads then one silver bead, repeating the pattern over and over. Make at least four strands.) Then twist them together. You'll have a multiple strand necklace that truly is dynamite!
Red Jasper has been used to counter impotency and fertility. Over time, it assists the increase of chi or life force in one's energetic field by strengthening the Base or Root Energy center/Chakra's connection to the Earth. It enhances memory, dreams and inner experience, stabilizing one to the environment, bringing or leading to balanced health and emotions, truthful expression and just actions. This stone has a quality of down-to-earth nobility that empowers the wearer. Red Jasper does its work gradually, bringing sustainable and permanent results.
