Healing Properties of Jet
Spiritual: Jet is a stone for Old Souls, those individuals who are born with an innate wisdom and common sense that transcends their actual age. However, Jet also helps cultivate these traits in the Young Souls, those who are still at the beginning of their spiritual journey. Jet offers protection during psychic travel and spiritual rituals, and can be used to keep the Dark Forces at bay. Jet awakens the Kundalini serpent and Shakti energy, and encourages this fiery power to move upward towards the crown and lead us to Enlightenment. It helps us to recognize our own unique brand of magic and to use it for the benefit of both our spiritual and earthly life. Jet is attuned to the Root Chakra and linked to the astrological sign of Capricorn. It is connected to the element of Earth and vibrates to the Number 8.
Emotional: Jet is an exceptional grounding stone which also lifts us up emotionally. It draws out negative energy that has gotten stuck in our emotional body and also helps us to work through any confusing emotions we are struggling with. Jet helps us to look calmly at our own fears and to assess whether or not those fears have any basis in reality. If they are deemed “real” fears, then Jet helps us to see a clear path forward, so we know can plan our response if the worst comes to pass. Jet is traditionally used for mourning and can offer comfort after the death of a loved one. Jet encourages us to see what lessons we can learn from every experience, both those which are happy and those which are less than ideal.
Mental: Jet encourages us to step into our personal power and take control of our own life. It helps us to honestly assess ourselves and our actions, and to acknowledge our shortcomings and celebrate our gifts. Jet encourages us to stop trying to cultivate “self-esteem” which requires constant successes in order to be maintained, and instead cultivate “self-kindness” which imbues us with grace and dignity, regardless of life’s ups and downs. Jet stabilizes finances and reminds us to save more money, for rainy days as well as for sunny ones!
Physical: Jet is recommended when we are feeling physically ill partially due to emotional situations. For example, if we are sick and weak from grief or if our immune system is overstimulated because of stress. Jet helps us to work through the emotional issues gently and thoroughly so that our physical body can return to its normal state of wellbeing. If we frequently suffer from headaches or stomach cramping, Jet helps us to explore our emotional and physical habits and see if there are reasonable adjustments that we can make. Jet offers sweet grounding so that we don’t let our fears run away with us, imagining worst case scenarios or believing that pain is permanent. Jet helps us to be sensible and to take good care of ourselves on all levels.
