Jade Meaning - Ancient Strength and Serenity

You can benefit from the soothing and healing energy of jade by wearing jade as jewelry, especially jewelry that goes over your heart area, such as these beads. Jade pendants are another excellent choice of jewelry, as are jade brooches and pins.

Jade seems to be the most popular choice when it comes to various carvings used as feng shui cures. Jade is also much loved in various jewelry pieces - from beads to bracelets and rings. What makes jade a feng shui favourite? What is the meaning of jade? And how is jade jewelry good feng shui for you body? Let's find out.

WHAT IS THE MEANING OF JADE?

Jade carries a sweet, light and nourishing energy that can feel very healing. It has a soothing purity about it, and it goes about purifying your energy field in a very accepting, loving, wise kind of way.

So, one obvious meaning of the jade stone is purity and purification. Another meaning of jade is gentleness and nourishment, because jade is a stone that protects and supports loving heart energy.

Jade may feel to you like an ancient sage that is so centered in his or her own being (and accepting of others) that just by being in their presence you feel elevated and nurtured.

There is no strong rush of energy when it comes to jade. Its energy is very different from other popular feng shui stones such as pyrite or hematite, for example. The message of jade is "Love and Accept Yourself", and its powerful healing starts by helping you align yourself with its balanced, harmonious quality of energy.

So, yet another jade meaning is harmony and balance.

WHERE DOES JADE COME FROM?

Most of the jade on the market comes from China, US and Russia.

WHAT ARE THE SPECIFIC FENG SHUI PROPERTIES OF JADE?

In feng shui, jade has been used for centuries for its abilities to create a serene feeling of harmony and balance. Jade is also used as a protection and good luck feng shui stone. You can find endless good luck feng shui charms with jade employed for various purposes - from creating wealth to attracting more friends. Jade jewelry is also a popular feng shui application (body feng shui, which is no less important than your home feng shui!).

Of course, another reason why jade has been extensively used in feng shui is because jade is widely available in China, the birthplace of feng shui.

Jade comes in many colours - from green-blue to white, and you can choose your jade stone by better understanding the energy of specific colours.

WHERE DO I PLACE JADE FOR GOOD FENG SHUI?

As jade belongs to the earth feng shui element, it is best to place it as a feng shui cure in the areas that are either governed or nourished by the earth element. All bagua areas except North and South can benefit from the soothing energy of jade.

WHAT FORM OF JADE SHOULD I CHOOSE?

You can choose either a jade carving in a specific symbol that speaks to you, or jade tumble stones. Explore the meaning of various feng shui symbols to help you make a better choice for your home or office.

For example, you can choose jade mandarin ducks for love energy (placed in Southwest) or a jade pi yao for wealth (placed in Southeast). Carvings of flowers, especially peonies, are popular in jade because of a beautiful expression of the energy of flowers through this gentle stone.

You can also find jade fu dogs, wu lou (Chinese gourd), various mystic knot designs with jade, as well as numerous animal carvings, such as dragons, elephants, turtles, dogs, fish and much more.

A jade Buddha may be an excellent feng shui decor/cure for your home, as the soothing and wise energy of jade is the best match for Buddha energy, be it the Laughing Buddha or the Medicine Buddha.

Another popular feng shui deity expression is Green Tara carved in green colour jade (of course!).
