This mineral is known as the “supreme nurturer”. It acts as a reminder that one is not here on this physical plane just for oneself, but is also here to bring joy and substance to others.
The ancients revered Jasper as sacred, protective and as a facilitator of safe astral travel. Jasper was placed over the heart and sacral chakras prior to astral travel.
Jasper is also a sustaining stone, a stone representing the elemental “man”. It can be quite helpful in times of extended hospitalization or when ones energy is low. On a long fast, it can help to keep ones energy high.
