Jade is associated with the heart chakra. It creates harmony and balance by calming when over-active or stimulating when lethargic. It helps to bring inner peace and is a good stone to use during sleep, both for its harmonious vibration and for encouraging insightful dreams. It has been referred to by some authors as a ‘dream stone’.
In ancient cultures, Jade is said to be protective, assure long life and a peaceful death. It is also said to bring good luck and friendship.
Spiritually Jade helps with self-realisation. It encourages you to become who you really are and to recognise yourself as a spiritual being rather than become too attached to material, worldly things.
Physically Jade is a cleansing stone and can be used to help with kidney or bladder problems by placing the crystal in a glass of water before drinking it. Jade also helps with the nervous system and helps to strengthen the heart.
As a travel stone, Green Jade prevents illness while on holiday, is beneficial for those travelling alone, and protects children and pets from straying or being hurt while on a journey.
My experience of living with Jade;
On the first day of working with Jade I went to my yoga class. The focus of this class was on contentment and the yoga instructor told us to imagine a jade pendant hanging at our hearts. Again, the energy of working with crystals brought the right crystal at the right time.
For a few days I found myself having negative thoughts and emotions which were rather self-destructive and I then had a dream where every possible negative emotion that I have felt was given to me. When I woke, I realised that I have control of my thoughts and emotions. I am no longer the person I was and I felt stronger from being shown that I can take control and remain positive.
Towards the end of the week I had a proposal put to me for a future project. I initially felt off balance as it is something that I hadn’t considered before, but after I thought about it and meditated, I am sure it is something that I would love to do. Being asked to join in this future project has given me a boost of self-confidence and confirmation that I am on the right path.
