Jasper is known as the "supreme nurturer". It sustains and supports during times of stress, and promotes tranquility and wholeness.
This stone aligns chakras and can be used in chakra layouts. It facilitates shamanic journeys and dream recall, and it provides protection and grounds energies and the body. It absorbs negative energy and cleanses and aligns the chakras and aura. Jasper balances yin and yang and aligns the physical, emotional, and mental bodies within the etheric realm. It clears electromagnetic and environmental pollution, and aids dowsing.
Picture jasper is said to be the Earth Mother speaking to her children. It contains a message from the past within its pictures, for those who can read it. It brings to the surface hidden feelings of guilt, envy, hatred, love, and thoughts that are normally pushed to the side, either from past or present lives. Once the repression is released, these thoughts and feelings are seen as lessons along the way.
This stone instills a sense of proportion and harmony. It brings comfort and alleviates fear.
