Red Jasper is a remarkable stone known as the ‘supreme nurturer’ and an all-round amazing healing crystal. Its earthy feel and fiery red colour create a stone that is grounding and can balance your aura energy and reduce stress. Some Native American tribes believe Red Jasper represents blood and used it for purification and cleansing rituals. However globally Red Jasper always stood for protection and grounding with ancient traditions. We know it most probably had other functions as well though, from archaeological artefacts that were found where Red Jasper was used for weaponry. Red Jasper is most effective when carried with you or has direct contact with your skin. It will boost your endurance, focus and determination and is great when you have to perform to a high level, mentally and physically. Use Red Jasper during your meditation on the Root and Base Chakras or wear it as jewelry as an effective protector against pollution and electromagnetic energy. Red Jasper is also believed to stimulate your libido and balance your sexual energy. This stone is also used in dream recall so you should try placing it under your pillow and place it between your hands once you are awake. The more you handle a Red Jasper stone the more vibrations it will send out that will aid in dream recall.
