Jade has been used for medicinal purposes as well as for jewelry, ornaments, and religious artifacts by the Mayans and the Aztecs. The name jade comes from the Spanish expression piedra de ijada—literally “stone of the pain in the side.”

The Chinese associate jade with clarity of mind and purity of spirit. Some of the ancient symbolic motifs still used in modern jade carvings (both nephrite and jadeite) include:

Bat—happiness
Butterfly—long life
Dragon—power, prosperity, and goodness
Peach—immortality
Bi (flat circular disk with a hole in the center) – heaven

Jade, Jadeite, and Nephrite Healing Properties

Ancient jade carvings invoked the powers of heaven and earth and mystic forces of life and death.  Jade is a spiritual stone with significant meaning that’s intricately woven into Chinese culture.

The Chinese eternity symbol, or bi, bears great spiritual significance for many jadeite connoisseurs. The shape is simple: a convex or plump disk with a round hole in its center. Ideally, the jadeite should be more than twice as wide as the hole.

Jade has been cherished for thousands of years. It’s considered pure and enduring enough to inspire the wearer’s highest spiritual aspirations, yet sensuous and luxurious enough to satisfy down-to-earth cravings.

The ancient healing property of jade is said to have multiple benefits, including calming and soothing properties. These qualities are believed by some people in China who practice crystal therapy with it as a way for their heart rate to slow down while making major life decisions or overcoming fearfulness on an emotional level.

Jade is a stone that can be used to help balance your body’s systems. This includes helping with hip and kidney issues, as well as emotional or spiritual problems reducing physical resistance which could lead you to conditions such as fluid retention or diabetes due in part to chronic inflammation. It also relieves arthritis pain, especially near joints where there have been injury(s) sustained during active periods.

Jade is a stone of serenity and purity. It signifies wisdom gathered in tranquility, which increases love for oneself as well as others around you; it also promotes protective energies that keep one from harm’s way (especially emotional). The calming effects aid both mental peace – releasing negative thoughts-and physical health by helping to soothe the mind fully while stimulating ideas through dreaming!

Jade and Chakras

The 7 chakras are a person’s internal energy centers and they’re aligned vertically near the spine. Energy enters your body through what we call “head” (heaven) or base(earth). The seven main points of intersection where these forces mingle create different patterns which can be seen as vibrant colors within our own being; each producing its own signature color-coded aura to represent health concerns such as stress levels, moods etc… These vortexes were created so that all might share both physical space.  The chakras are in constant interaction with one another. They cannot really be separated, and serve as a balance to your entire being – both physical aspects like emotions or personality traits but also more abstract ones such as thoughts about yourself (think: beliefs).

Two extra chakras have recently been discovered by ancient yogic studies; the Earth Star Chakra and Soul-Star Chi. I have included a brief description of these in my page for you to learn more about them!

 

Jade and Auric Bodies

  • Physical
  • Etheric
  • Astral
  • Mental
  • Picture

 

Human beings have seven bodies, one physical and six nonphysical. The six unseen bodies are known as auras.

The physical body and the six nonphysical bodies are interconnected with each other. The health of any or all auras contributes toward the overall physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual well-being of a person.

Auras, also known as energy bodies, are affected by all aspects of your life and the energy that feeds them comes from internal and external sources.  You’ll need high-quality prana or chi flowing into them to ensure the health of these energy bodies.

Physical Body

  • this is the body that you live in and is linked to the Base Chakra.

Etheric Body

  • a blueprint for the physical body and is made up of vibrating energy.  It’s linked to the Sacral Chakra.

Astral Body

  • your emotions reside here. It is comprised of different colors that are constantly changing based on how you feel.  Emotional experiences are also stored in the astral body and is linked to the Solar Plexus Chakra.

Mental Body

  • is made up of two parts, the lower and the higher. The lower mental body is linked to the solar plexus chakra, while the higher mental body is linked to the heart chakra.
    The lower mental body is where you do your everyday thinking. It is the mind that you use to reason, form mental arguments, create thought forms, and memorize things. The lower mental body is tied to your personality.   For example, thinking negatively will eventually permeate into the physical body.  Therefore changing your negative thought patterns can often change your mental health for the better.

As your spirituality develops you’ll raise your consciousness and it is through this pathway you’ll be able to tap into the One Mind.  The “One Mind” contains all information.  By opening your higher mental body you’ll receive moments of knowledge that flow to you.
