Stone of the Month for April – Brown (Picture) Jasper

April is the month to promote our connection to Mother Earth with Earth Day celebrations on 22nd. How many of us are really paying attention? It’s certainly a growing collection of humanity and I set the intention that expansion will continue.

I know that until I began my journey with stones and crystals I took the earth absolutely for granted. Coming from an area of steel & coal mining I guess I knew what humans did with some of the things people dug up, but I was definitely asleep to the consequences & abuses. I lived in a huge city and despite amazing parks, green spaces, & fabulous countryside nearby, really never gave Gaia a thought. Didn’t even know her name.

I’m glad now for my awareness. The stones & crystals I work with bring me great joy. The stones with which I surround myself bring me healing in so many different ways. My creative process is readily meditative for me. I so enjoy meeting people & helping them select a piece of jewelry that really speaks to their journey & connectivity. I hope you can feel my passion 🙂

Jaspers generally all have such beautiful gentle energy, they are the nurturers, the healers, the spirit stones of courage & wisdom. They carry strong connections to the Earth, very beneficial for grounding, stability & strength.

Brown Jasper is particularly useful as a worry stone, it can aid in dissolving sudden burst of fear, panic, anger. Assists in achieving deep meditation & centering, & can assist with past life karmic healing.
Picture Jasper is said to be The Earth Mother speaking to her children, willing us to see. Allows us to see the bigger picture so we can move forward with confidence. Aids creative visualization & bringing goals & dreams into reality.

If you are looking to ground to and connect with Gaia, here are a few other stones that might be helpful:

Apache Tears – (Naturaly tumbled Black Obsidian) Grounds & cleanses your Earth Star Chakra. *
Aragonite – (many colors) Stabilizes root & earth chakras, deepening our connection to Gaia.
Hawks Eye – (Blue Tiger Eye) Excellent for healing earth energies & for grounding.
Larimar – provides earth healing. Connects us to the earth goddess. Restores our connection to nature.
Malachite – Heals earths energies. Provide a strong affinity & connection to devic forces.
Obsidian – Strongly protective, provides great grounding cord between Root & Earth Heart Chakras. **
Vanadinite – Strong connector to earth chakra. Grounding the soul into the physical body.

Love & Blessings till next time. J

* Earth Star Chakra – is part of our etheric body. Located about 12-18 inches below the feet. Holds our soul in incarnation linking our physical body to earth
* * Use/wear Obsidian with caution – it has a propensity for exploding truth into the open!
