The Eastern Diamond

The Green Energy of Jade

An old Chinese legend tells of an Ancient King who, falling deathly ill, was cured by wearing a jade stone. Many believe that jade transfers its virtues into the body. Long considered the health, wealth and longevity stone, jade is perhaps the most revered stone in the East. For the Chinese in particular, jade is thought of as “the Quintessence of Heaven and Earth,” and admiration for this stone surpasses even diamonds because of the healing properties and protective energy it instills.

Jade works by balancing the heart chakra, located at the center of the chest. If this chakra is out of balance, it essentially means you are out of touch with your heart. Emotional outbursts occur since the imbalance amplifies moodiness or depression. Over time this can lead to an obsessive or overly critical outlook and manifest some physical disorders like high blood pressure, heart disease or asthma.

Jade balances the heart chakra by tuning into its “green energy,” as the ancient yogis say. Green is the color of the light that surrounds this chakra and jade helps activate it, opening up the potential for compassion, unconditional love, joy and humility. It calms the nervous system and soothes the mind, bringing with it security, tranquility and peaceful energy.

To encourage jade energy in your body, practice the “Meditation for Projection and Protection from the Heart” found in the  Aquarian Teacher Manual, published by the Kundalini Research Institute. Try it for 40 days and see what happens.
