What Is an African Jade Crystal?

African Jade is known for its nurturing properties. 

Many believe African Jade has the ability to attract friendships and improve existing relationships. The crystal is also believed to help turn dreams into a reality. 

If you feel that your relationships have been out of harmony or you’re yearning for companionship, African Jade just might be the right crystal for you. 

African Jade is associated with:

  • Soothing
  • Uplifting
  • Harmony to mind, body, and spirit

It is these associations that the crystal is revered for. If you are moving to a new city and want to build a new support system, dreaming of starting your own business, or looking to smooth out feelings of disconnect with your friends, African Jade has been known to help. 

African Jade is primarily aligned with the heart chakra. The heart chakra, when out of alignment, can cause feelings of loneliness or isolation. African Jade can help realign the heart chakra and get you back into a comfortable rhythm with those you love.

Cleansing African Jade

Cleansing your new spinner is essential upon its arrival. Through the process of packaging and shipping, your spinner could have accumulated negative energy which you can get rid of with one of the following methods. 

One method of cleansing your new spinner is to burn sage and run the spinner through the smoke. Sage is a common herb that is used in crystal cleansing and its smoke can help charge the crystal with positive energy. 

Another method of cleansing is to rinse your crystal in a natural water source. If you don’t have access to a natural water source, bottled spring water is a great substitute that will help cleanse your spinner. You can also use water from the tap if that is most convenient. 

A third method of cleansing is to bury your crystal in the ground. Doing this overnight helps reconnect the crystal with the earth, ridding it of any negative energy it may have picked up. 

Finally, you can use moonlight to charge your crystal. Placing your crystal in a place that has access to the moonlight and leaving it overnight is a great way to rid your crystal of negative energy. 

One important note is to periodically cleanse your crystal when you’ve been wearing it for a while. If you notice your crystal is starting to get cloudy or you happen to know there’s a full moon coming up, it can be helpful to repeat any of these methods to recharge your spinner with positive energy. 

Using African Jade for Crystal Healing

After you’ve gone through any of the above methods and gotten rid of any negative energies, it’s time to start using your African Jade. 

The first step to using any crystal is to keep an open mind about its potential abilities to heal. Having any skepticism about its powers can affect its ability to work for you. 

Next, you will want to set an intention for your spinner. The intention should be specific and related to the properties mentioned earlier in this post. Intentions help your spinner empower you in your daily life. 

For African Jade, you might consider setting an intention of broadening your circle and meeting new friends that have diverse interests. If you are feeling like it's time to start pursuing your dreams, you might set an intention to aid you with your efforts and help you achieve success. 

After deciding what you want your intention to be, hold your spinner in your hands and speak that intention into it. As you wear it, keep your intention in mind and make decisions that align with your intention.
