For nearly 6,000 years, jade has been a prized stone used in tools, ritual artifacts, and jewelry from ancient Britain to Central and South America to New Zealand and China. This stone is normally green and mostly opaque, though it can be somewhat translucent and sometimes occur in shades of white, gray, and pink. It has traditionally been a symbol of tranquility, truthfulness, wisdom, and luck. On the emotional and spiritual planes, jade is a great stone for helping you to tap into your authentic self—the self that knows what is best for you underneath all the emotional chaos that may be occurring during a difficult or confusing time. It helps with self-trust, and with clearing away past emotional experiences that cloud your ability to see the present circumstances objectively. It also helps you to be your real self in your interactions with others, rather than trying to present yourself in a way that you think will be pleasing to them. For these reasons, jade has a very calming energy, and is excellent help for unsettling situations in your life. It also leads to the ability to create better circumstances—in terms of relationships, health, wealth, and new opportunities—because you’re aligning your goals with your authentic self. It can also help make difficult tasks feel easier to accomplish, increasing your sense of peace around work. Jade is used in magical workings for protection and eliminating negativity, and tapping into our innate wisdom and courage. It is used as a “dream stone” to bring insight from the spiritual realms by placing it on the forehead at the location of the “third eye.” Keeping it under your
pillow can help you remember your dreams better. As a green stone, the color of prosperity, jade can also be used in spellwork for abundance, and it supports the growth of plants. It supports new love, and harmony in business relationships as well as within the family. Some people keep a piece or two of jade in their workplace to keep away unwanted negativity from coworkers. Keep a piece in your pocket to help recharge your energy and keep your immune system in good shape.
