Jasper



I used this stone when my Daughter#2 was having nightmares a few years ago, we placed one in the middle of the floor of the room as we were advised and left it there over night for a few weeks. It was recommended as it is a good gemstone for fears of the night. As it is a good solid stone which takes it's time to do it's job my daughter had a couple of bad dreams for a short while but they did ease off. Whether this was due to the stone or other factors I don't know but I'm sure it helped. Even just knowing it was there was soothing, power of the mind and all that. It also helps with hazards of the night and I must say that no-one tripped over the stone while it was lying in the middle of the room, and that was very helpful.

As I said, it works slowly but has a strong energy which works it's magic with slow but determined energy. For this reason it it meant to be helpful with someone who might be going through counselling as it works with them in their own time. An aid for overcoming addiction and gathering strength to do this, and is calming for emotions.

The Jasper stone is made from petrified mud and so is considered an earthy, warm stone, very grounding and nurturing. Although it is slow to show a change in people it is still a good stone to carry around. It's good for shy people to help them overcome their timidness, so keep one in your pocket if you feel you need a boost in that direction. It is also meant to help you stand up for what you believe in - for that reason it's useful for those in prefessions where this is needed such as the army, lawyers and police. That last is good to know as my Daughter#2 is thinking about this as her career, a two way help in her case.

One more detail about the Jasper is that it is good for the sense of smell, and while typing this I suddenly connected the police with it again as in police sniffer dogs - or am I going too far now?

I really enjoyed learning about Jasper; thanks for sharing. FYI, a shortage of calcium, potassium and magnesium often create anxiety in teenagers. -Belinda [A - Z participant]

Thanks, Belinda, she's not as anxious now, but perhaps I could look look out foods rich in those nutrients as her school work load will be increasing next year, so she will probably be feeling more so, then.

This is such a fabulous theme thank you! And terrific that it helped your daughter overcome her night time fears!

It did help, she liked knowing it was there in her room which must have been an aid for removing her fears in itself.
