What a stunningly beautiful crystal Jasper is, and it comes in so many colours and variations. It was one of the first crystals that I truly fell in love with, and my red jasper heart is never very far from my side. Jasper is a multi layered variety of opaque chalcedony, its colours can be red, yellow, green, brown, blue or purple. You can also get a mixture of colours – Mookaite is a favorite Jasper of mine its a mixtures of reds and orangey/yellow. The earthy colours of Jasper bring a slow, steady release of a grounding and stabilising energy. Jasper is a really good crystal to have to hand during times of stress, it sustains and supports you.
I have a Mookaite Jasper pendulum – this is my Reiki pendulum, it was gifted to me at my reiki level 1 training and my connection with it is strong. I use it in my healing sessions to help check the energy flow of Chakra centres. Jasper is a great assistant for Dowsing!! There are many ways Jasper can help and support us as I shall explain, and when you add the different colour variations they each have added healing properties.
Jasper brings with it tranquillity and wholeness, it supports all aspects of your life. Its good for aligning our chakra centres, and provides a balancing energy for our physical, emotional and mental bodies. It has cleansing properties also, clearing electromagnetic and environmental pollution including radiation. There are many variants of Jasper and, I could write about them all, but I wont! I shall focus on the energy and properties of my top few favorites.
Red Jasper is associated with – Root/Base Chakra, zodiac sign – Aries and Capricorn , and the elements of Earth and Fire. This is a gently stimulating stone, it helps to anchor you with its peaceful and calming vibes. Jasper enhances protection, promotes astral travel, dream recall and can assist with shamanic journeying. Its very nurturing and it encourages those behaviours within you also.
Yellow Jasper – associated with the solar plexus chakra centre and the element of Air . Yellow Jasper is used for protection in both the physical and spiritual worlds. This crystal guides you on your path and through your earthly experiences. It is also known as the stone of intellect and great for writing or poetry. This crystal helps ease problems within the digestive system.
Kambaba Japer (the green one!) I have very recently taken a huge liking to this crystal and have been working with it a lot. Associated with the Heart Chakra and the zodiac sign of Scorpio, it hold a mysterious air of magic about it! Kambaba Jasper is the new name for Fossilised Stromatolite Algae (who knew hey!?) it can also be known as Crocodile Jasper. Kambaba increases your self worth, reduces your fears and brings wisdom. It cleanses the body of toxins and helps with the assimilation of vitamins and minerals. A good stone for supporting your immune system.
Mookaite Jasper is a wonderful mixture of earthy reds and yellows. It connects with your heart, solar plexus and base chakra energy centres. It provides a nurturing, shielding and grounding vibration. Fabulous for decision making, new ideas and boosting energy!
Brecciated Jasper – this is red jasper veined with hematite this crystal brings with it all the qualities of red jasper with the addition of the shielding and grounding properties of hematite. So I use this in the morning to help me feel grounded before I tackle the day.
Kiwi Jasper – this is a new crystal to me and when I bought it, I knew what it was but I hadn’t looked into its healing properties. I like doing that because usually then you see why you have been drawn to it – that’s the magic of crystals! For a Jasper this one feels quite high in the vibration scale. Another great cleanser, Kiwi Jasper also neutralises negativity and cleanses your aura. Its also good for dream recall – but the night I spent with it by my bed – it was definitely too high vibrational for me! Its a good one for Shamanic journeying so I shall be using it for that and for meditation! Its very beautiful to look at too!!
