Red Jasper is another member of the quartz family. Jaspers are opaque microcrystalline quartz which come in many colours and often with patterns depending on the inclusions. The red colour is due to the presence of iron.
Red Jasper is associated with the root or sacral chakra. It has a strong stable energy, is grounding and very earthy. It can help with physical strength and stamina and is a stimulator of chi, or life force. It is known as the stone of endurance.
Red Jasper is a stone of protection guarding against physical threats and assists in situations of danger. It is said to eliminate negative energy, returning it to source and stabilising the aura.
Red Jasper can help to enhance memory and dream recall. It encourages recovery from physical weakness due to illness. It is useful in generating muscle tissue and supports the circulatory and respiratory systems. It also aids in releasing attachment to negative emotional or sexual experiences.
Red Jasper does its work gradually, but it offers the advantage that the gains one makes are more permanent than those achieved with different stones.
My experience of living with Red Jasper;
Following the past few weeks where I had been very reflective, I feel that working with the Red Jasper has given me strength and a renewed purpose in life. It has helped me to accept some new things that are happening in my life whilst making sure that I was still in alignment with my true self.
I have wanted to get out into the garden more, I planted out some vegetables and connected with nature by going for a walk in the woods. I slept heavily and remembered my dreams in much detail.
