Chakras And Red Jasper
Red Jasper is perfect for activating and balancing the root chakra and for grounding the body’s spiritual and emotional energies down into the Earth.
The Base chakra is located at the very bottom of the spine, in the perineum area, and is responsible for keeping us safe and secure in our material needs. It also keeps us grounded and controls our levels of physical energy for movement and feeling.
When the Base chakra is out of balance or in need of activation, you may feel physically sluggish and require constant stimulation. You may overeat or indulge in drugs, drink, or other substances in an attempt to “feel” something other than apathy.
When your spiritual energies are out of balance, you may feel disconnected from reality and other people. You may also feel cynical about spiritual matters and impatient with others’ opinions or beliefs.
A healthy Base chakra means that the body regains its strength and stamina. It also brings a sense of security in one’s power in spiritual and emotional matters, along with the patience and tolerance needed to accept the different views of others.
Cleansing And Charging Red Jasper
Red Jasper is effective in absorbing negative energies and vibrations and transmuting them into positive ones.
It is important to keep it cleared and cleansed of these negative energies and this can be done quite easily by passing your crystal through the cleansing smoke from sweet sage.
You can also cleanse it by holding it under running water for a few minutes, drying it on a soft cloth, and placing it for a few hours in the sunlight.
