There are two crystals and healing stones that come to mind when I think of where we are energetically during the month of January. Garnet is one of them and it is traditionally associated with January, as the month’s birth stone. Another stone, however, that I have repeatedly encountered in my daily experiences and energetic vibrations pick up during this month is Red jasper. I would like to focus on this beautiful stone and explore its healing and guiding properties and see how those can assist us all in where we are now.
As always I would like to encourage you to tune into your own resonant vibration with the stones and information they carry. Material that comes through your energetic bodies from the source, if you like, is always the most accurate for you in a given moment. The way it works is that whatever you are aligning to at a particular moment, i.e. tuning into a particular energy, that energy will communicate information in ways of bringing things to your attention, displaying certain colours and shapes in your awareness. This is what have been happening to me this month of January – Red Jasper.
First of all let’s look at the colour red and its significance to the energy of January. It is red and this colour is of a masculine energy, passion, protection, Fire, setting goals and manifesting with confidence and courage. This is the month of the King.
Re Jasper is an interesting stone, as it bring certain problems to light before they grow bigger, so what it teaches us is to become more aware of your daily encounters, your feelings and behaviours of yourself and others. Be tuned into what you are doing and why. Red Jasper also provides important insights into difficult situations, therefore, it might be a good idea to sit with one of these stones and absorb through meditation its vibrational messages to you. It also has a great calming and balancing energy, so if you tend to feel anxious and worry a lot, it is a great stone to carry around. Let’s see how this might relate to where we are during this time of year. It is a new year, a new beginning, people making resolutions and setting goals. With all these activities there come inevitable worries, doubts and uncertainties about the right way forward. Many ‘go for it’ with confidence and yes, it is great time to align with that masculine energy of ‘doing’. However, many people might be at a point of self-doubt and not being sure about the direction they want to take. Something to think about. What can you do to propel yourself forward. Well, tuning into the energies around you, Fire element and calming, grounding influences of Red Jasper just might give you a helping hand and ensure you are safe and comfortable in moving forward with manifesting your dreams.
Other properties of Red Jasper: it cleans and stabilizes the aura, and strengthens your boundaries. It is also a stone of health and detoxification, which is of high value to many when stepping on a new path or starting a healthy living regime. It supports and heals and associated with the base chakra.
