Jaspers have been revered by ancient peoples and civilizations throughout the world as sacred and powerful stones of protection, for both the physical and spiritual realm. They were known as the “rain bringers” and nurturers, healers of the spirit and stones of courage and wisdom.
To the ancient and medieval world, the most highly prized was Green Jasper, a rare, single-colored variety ranging from pale spring green to a deep tea or olive green. Known as “the rain bringer,” Green Jasper, when properly consecrated, was considered the ultimate and most reliable stone for this purpose.
Green Jasper was equally credited throughout the centuries for driving away evil spirits and ghosts, harmful fantasies, and witchcraft. It was particularly protective against venomous creatures, kept one from drowning, and warded off sorrow. It provided good health, made one amiable and brave, healed fever and edema, diseases of the stomach, lungs and chest, and increased fertility, aiding women throughout their pregnancy and childbirth. Green Jasper is still utilized today by metaphysical practitioners for these properties, and for its ability to balance obsessive tendencies and restore harmony to the emotional body.
Green Jasper is an excellent talisman for those coping with paranoid delusions, entity attachments, or who feel overwhelmed by nightmares. Wear or carry as a rubbing stone to ward off negative energy, bring reassurance, and to help restore inner calm. [101 Hall, 112][Gienger, 51]
An ultimate sleep stone, Green Jasper is wonderful for young children to help establish proper sleep rhythms. Adults find it is a great addition to the bath or used as an elixir. [Eason, 274]
Use Green Jasper to overcome obsessive compulsive disorder, and as an aid in efforts to diet, quit smoking, or in reducing one’s over-consumption of alcohol. It lends emotional support and strengthens self-control, as well as boosting physical energy levels. Its slow, steady vibration helps avoid extremes and encourages perseverance. [Eason, 274][Hall, 156][Gienger, 51][Mella, 42-43]
Green Jasper is conducive to happy and healthy pregnancies, and has been used in fertility ceremonies in cultures from Eastern Europe to Africa. Wear one in a pouch around the waist for fertility if you wish to conceive. It also provides assistance during childbirth. [Eason, 274][101 Hall, 112][Lecouteux, 160]
Green Jasper is an exceptional stone for healing dis-ease within the emotional system, especially in areas of obsession by balancing out parts of one’s life that have become all-important to the detriment of others. It helps one recognize thought patterns and fixations that have become irrational, and brings the courage needed to express and accept them in order to move forward. Green Jasper encourages resistance, improves control over one’s thoughts and actions, and restores harmony to the emotional body.
All Jaspers connect to the Earth and may be placed on the Base Chakra to stabilize and energize the physical body. Laying it over each chakra in turn, will cleanse, boost and realign the chakras and aura, balancing yin and yang energies as well as aligning the physical, emotional and mental bodies with the etheric realm. [Hall III, 113][Hall, 155][Melody, 344-345]
Green Jasper is particularly attuned to the Heart Chakra, located near the center of the breastbone. It regulates our interaction with the external world and controls what we embrace and what we resist. It gives us the balancing ability to be ourselves within the environment. When the Heart Chakra is out of balance we may feel either controlling or controlled in a relationship, and become critical of the little foibles of others. We may find ourselves having inappropriately strong emotional responses to everyday external stimuli. Green crystal energy is used to resolve blockages and to re-balance the Heart Chakra, helping us understand our own needs and emotions clearly. We can deal with the ebbs and flows of emotional relationships, understand their cyclic nature, and accept the changes.
Green Jasper is a “growth crystal” - a powerful conduit of the earth’s Life Force of birth, development, and creation, and of the power of nature’s constant renewal. It is a potent aid in nurturing, whether of fledgling family relationships or a new business venture. Green Jasper is perfect for keeping a venture on course, a project on schedule, and life on track. Lighter green crystals promote spiritual growth and renewed commitment to a higher purpose. Those of a darker hue are talismans of physical growth and strength, and safety in travel.
