Root Chakra – Muladhara – grounding, security, safety, survival, trust, self-awareness
Red Jasper stimulates the Base, or Root Chakra, located at the base of the spine, and controls the energy for kinesthetic feeling and movement. It is the foundation of physical and spiritual energy for the body. When physically out of balance the symptoms manifest themselves as lethargy, low levels of activity, low enthusiasm, and a need for constant stimulation. When spiritual energies are out of balance, one may feel flighty, disconnected from reality or distant. When the Base Chakra is in balance, the physical body regains its strength and stamina, and the spiritual energy is rekindled in the form of security and sense of one’s own power. It often leads to independence and spontaneous leadership. Jasper is a stone of gentleness, comfort, and relaxation. It is also known as a nurturing stone. It is used for bringing beauty, into life and specific situations. Beauty brought by jasper can be striking inner beauty as well as external beauty. It also brings peace to endings, whether it be the end of a relationship, the end of a situation, or something else. Because of this, in addition to its general energy of peace, it is a good stone for healing grief.
