The Health Benefits of Red Jasper
Red Jasper has been appreciated for centuries for its’ healing powers. It is said to assist in regulating the metabolic energies in your body. This can give you a sense of increased vitality, endurance and stamina. Used to help with muscle regeneration, Red Jasper is an excellent crystal to keep close if you are suffering from sickness, injury, or prolonged fatigue.
Its’ invigorating energy is also thought to benefit the circulatory system and strengthen your heart. It can help alleviate the symptoms of many different ailments, including anaemia and exhaustion. It also may assist with detoxifying the blood and cleansing the liver.
Red Jasper is a cleansing crystal that can be used to clear your aura of negatives energies. It can help to alleviate stress and strengthen your bond with nature. Red Jasper also supports your ancient connection to Mother Earth, which can calm, centre, and relax you.
Place a Red Jasper crystal in your home to absorb radiation and lessen the effects of environmental and electromagnetic pollution. It can also act as a shield to protect you from the emotional energies and dominance of others, as well as protecting you from feelings that are often very taxing on your soul.
Ways to Use Red Jasper
For a close soul-connection, wear a piece of Red Jasper on your body as a special tribute to yourself and your inner-strength.
To cleanse the energies in your home, place a stone in a central position in your house. Especially where there is a concentration of emotional energy.
To encourage more passion into your life, keep a Red Jasper stone in your bedroom.
To manifest positive changes, use Red Jasper during meditation. Set your intentions and allow yourself to receive strength and guidance.
How to Look After Your Crystal
The best way to maintain and maximise the powers of your crystal is to recharge it under the light of a full moon. First, wash it under cool running water. Then place it under the moonlight for a night. This will restore all its natural energy.
You could also try smudging your Red Jasper with Sage. Burn a smudge stick and allow the crystal to be bathed in the smoke, while you visualise any negative energies disappearing.
Red Jasper is a crystal that has an unbreakable connection with Mother Earth. Through it, you can ground yourself and stand strong, facing life with a newfound perspective. It’s not always easy to stand fearlessly in our authenticity. But by connecting you with your inner power, Red Jasper will accompany you on your healing journey and steer you towards a place of self-empowerment and confidence.
