The Crystal of the Day for Thursday 10 October 2013 is Kambaba Jasper. This is a stone that has been around for a long time, however Kambaba jasper is relatively new to the market and little is known about its specific abilities. As with all jaspers it has particular qualities attributed to this variety of gem.
One of the most intensely grounding minerals, it possesses an amazing quality of directing one’s personal energies downward, melding them with Earth energies, then sending that energy back up in an arc. If one consciously allows this process, they may feel an intense ‘pulling’ as their energies are anchored into the planet, followed by a slower surging of the energy’s return. It pulls one inward to the core of the soul where there is hope without all the confusion of everyday existence. When necessary, this process can be repeated with conscious direction, to create a grounding circuit between oneself and the Earth. Such a process may be helpful after especially demanding sessions of spiritual work.
It is told that this jasper will mystically soothe the nerves and your state of mind, and it bring a sense of security well as protection. Jasper is highly-prized for powerful protective energy. Native Americans especially believed that it would protect against unseen dangers in the night. Jasper is said to calm a troubled mind and gives courage, creativity and strength under pressure. It is celebrated as a mood elevator.
“The Earth speaks” is the message of this stone and indeed, use of this mineral may help us to better hear her speak. It is said to be beneficial for plant growth and health. Helps one to connect to the rhythms of the Earth and her energies and assists one to hear the voice of nature. This stone is highly recommend to anyone who is soul-searching and looking for meaning in their live; to any one who is searching for truth; and to anyone who wishes more substance within their life.
Kambaba Jasper calms the emotions whilst providing insight into difficult situations. This gem is often referred to as the “Supreme Nurturer” as it provides support through life’s stressful events and is an excellent stone to wear to help alleviate worry. It is grounding and absorbs negative energy protecting the wearer from psychic attack. Shamans wear Jasper as it is believed that it holds the protection of solar energy and is used during the ritual of journeying. It cleanses the aura and aligns the chakras. It can also be worn to protect from electromagnetic radiation and environmental pollution. It promotes balanced emotions and good health yet it works at a steady pace and worn regularly the benefits this stone provides eventually become permanent. It is excellent for those who have obsessions by helping to bring balance to the emotions whilst also promoting rational thinking. It teaches the wearer to have empathy with the feelings of others. This gem helps an individual to be honest with themselves providing the courage to deal with situations and turn their thoughts in to actions. The energy of this stone works at the base chakra awakening the Kundalini (the spiritual life force at the base of the spine) as it does so it clears and strengthens each chakra in turn. It also works on stimulating creativity whilst encouraging self discipline to complete endeavours or projects which have lost their original excitement.
HEALING: Jasper has the reputation of helping to cleanse the body of toxins. This gem is said to be useful for complaints of the spleen, liver, gallbladder and stomach.
