Feng Shui and Brecciated Jasper
Red, black or brecciated Jasper is aligned with the energy of fire in Chinese five element theory. This means that is confers the qualities of passion, enthusiasm, dynamism and illumination on the areas of the home in which it is placed. It is Yang in nature, making it powerful and dynamic, so avoid placing it in areas where you wish to create a peaceful atmosphere. Instead, place it in the south to increase your confidence, and your reputation within the family and the community.
Using Brecciated Jasper to Enhance Spiritual Awareness
When you wish to enhance your spiritual awareness, and strengthen your connection to the metaphysical and etheric worlds, use Jasper to connect you to Mother Nature and the spirit of the Earth. It amplifies the vibration of wisdom that comes through from the devic and natural kingdoms and encourages us to celebrate the beauty that can be found in nature at all times, no matter the weather or the season, or your location. If you are city-bound, use jasper to connect you to the beauty of the ever changing skies, the power of the wind and the greenery that dwells within even the most concrete of jungles.
Through dream work and meditation, jasper can allow you to access the Ancient past and to retrieve spiritual knowledge for use in the present.
The “serpent” that lies coiled at the base of the spine, or Kundalini Energy as it is known in Yogic practice is responsible for activating the chakras and jasper will help you to awaken this energy and increase your spiritual energies and capacities.
