Jade is a lovely crystal with lots of cultural significance and healing potential. It comes in a range of colors and variations, all of which are easy to fall in love with. Most people are familiar with green jade, but there’s also orange, brown, blue, purple, red, and even white jade.
No matter the variation, jade is a powerful crystal that represents good fortune. It attracts abundance, love, confidence, protection, and warrior energy. It’s been famous for thousands of years for instilling wisdom and longevity.
The magic doesn’t stop there. Jade is also pure and serene, with a sweet, calming quality. The quiet strength that comes from jade is highly sought after and extremely beneficial to all. Especially those of us working to release negative thoughts and limiting beliefs.
Jade can help stabilize our moods and emotions. Anyone struggling with anxiety might enjoy the soothing energy of this crystal. Once we are relaxed and our heart center is open, jade encourages us to embrace our authentic selves. It does not want us to pretend to be something we are not; it wants us to be self reliant, proud, and capable.
In this blog post, we’ll explore the healing properties of green jade. I was eager to write this post because I adore jade and everything it represents—I even named my daughter after it. I hope the power of jade inspires her all throughout her life. And I hope this post inspires you in the same way!
You may already be familiar with the Chinese love of jade. Their culture has revered jade for its virtuous qualities, its beauty, and its economic value, since before the common era.
We believe jade to hold eleven special characteristics, according to Confucius. They are benevolence, justice, propriety, truth, credibility, music, loyalty, heaven, earth, morality and intelligence. *
Ancient Chinese culture used jade is so many marvelous ways. It carried a mysterious, spiritual quality that captured their attention and imagination. Instruments, utensils, jewelry, vessels, decoration, and other wares were crafted from jade, even thousands and thousands of years ago.
Even today, they curate genuine jade items intending to bring wisdom, serenity, strength, and good fortune to the owner.
The cultural significance of jade runs deep in Eastern countries. As society has advanced into the modern age, jade’s important cultural ties got stronger and deeper. Jade acts as the wise connection between spirituality and science for many people all over the world.
Jade: Wise & Strong
Listed below are some common traits attributed to green jade. Colored jade has added properties associated with their particular color. All forms of jade carry:
- Emotional Release
- Good Fortune
Green jade strongly associates with the heart chakra—our center of love, kindness, and compassion. It can help open up and balance the green chakra, allowing more love into our lives. Self love, love for others, understanding, and empathy will more easily flow from us and to us with an open heart chakra.
Because of jade’s closeness with love and kindness, it’s excellent for building strong relationships. Use this crystal to manifest romance and new friendships. It can also help repair relationships we already have, especially if both parties are willing and ready to do the emotional work.
Jade Physical Healing
Using crystals for healing the physical body can be a great complimentary practice. Jade can be helpful in treating diabetes and herpes. Ailments that relate to the muscles can benefit from jade as well.
To use crystals for healing the physical body, simply wear them as jewelry or place them near the afflicted area. My crystal healing book dives much deeper into this topic and will teach you all you need to know to facilitate your own healing.
All crystals resonate in tune with particular astrological energies. Jade is reminiscent of Aries and Taurus energy because of how strong-willed it can be. Aries is fiery and confident. Taurus is opinionated and smart. All these traits (and more!) correspond with jade very well.
Gemini and Libra also love jade energy. Both signs represent balance, harmony, and duality. We know jade for uniting people and bringing peace between them. Together, all these energies melt together to create a beautiful energy that feels complete and whole.
Jade’s magic goes far beyond the physical world. It’s a well-known dream stone, great for soothing bad dreams or promote insightful dreams. Also, a good crystal to work with if you’re building astral traveling skills.
This intimate connection with other-worlds makes jade an excellent choice for mediums. And anyone who recently passed away or is getting ready to transition to the afterlife. It acts as a protector and a guide for souls navigating the spiritual world.
