Jade is the perfect talisman to carry when traveling, especially if you are alone, and is effective in protecting children and pets if they are on a journey. Green jade amplifies the flow of Chi, or Life Force energies, and is especially potent if used whilst you are engaged in gardening, hiking or other outdoor pursuits. Green jade is also the crystal of love and will help to resolve conflict between lovers or family members as well as increasing trustworthiness and fidelity.
Jade supports those who are professional healers by helping in the diagnostic process and the designing of courses of treatment.
Jade in all of its colors is often made into jewelry and wearing a jade necklace or pendant protects the wearer against deception and the abuse of power by those who are in authority.
Feng Shui and Jade
In the five element system of Chinese philosophy Jade represents and utilizes wood energy. This energy symbolizes new beginnings, growth, expansion, health and nourishment, both physical and spiritual. Jade enhances vitality and increases the flow of positive energies in any space where it is placed. Use green crystals to enhance any space used for eating and in places where you are engaged on beginning a new project.
Place Jade in the East and Southeast areas of your home or room or workplace to amplify the harmonious elements of any relationships within the family or with work colleagues.
Jade is often carved into statues and figurines of Buddha, dragons, fish and frogs. All of these are particularly useful for bringing in the energies of good luck, prosperity, good health and new opportunities.
Using Jade to Enhance Spiritual Awareness
A Jade talisman or statue will act as a reminder to express your love for those who are important to you. It will also amplify any prayers you may wish to offer to your own higher power of gratitude for the blessings you experience every day. Jade has always represented nobility, not necessarily in the context of rank, but more so of ideals and beliefs. Touching jade assists in the creation of abundant beneficial energies for the highest good of all and also acts as a protection against potentially harmful or deceitful entities during spiritual work.
Jade is particularly helpful for any work that involves integrating mind and body and can be used in self-development exercises that focus on bringing mind, body, and spirit into harmony and balance. It helps to banish self-imposed limitations and assists in the achievement of self-belief and self-confidence. It will then aid the user in their quest towards translating thoughts and beliefs into reality. It is a good companion to take you on the road towards manifesting your dreams or practicing the principles of the Universal Law of Attraction.
