Ocean Jasper: "Ocean Jasper helps bring unresolved, long-buried emotions to the surface, where they can be examined in the warm light of day, and revealed as less important than you'd believed." --Lucy Cavendish, Mermaid Magic
Once those emotions come to the surface, ocean jasper helps to wash away their impact, leaving behind gentle healing energy, like a now-calm sea after a big, loud storm. It also helps you let go of stress, which is the focus of this series of Thursday posts, and release negativity.
It's often called the joy stone, so it gets my pick for creating bliss.
Peridot: "these stones are little green nuggets of positive power. Their vibration brings an inner sense of warmth and wellbeing, like sunshine on a spring day." --Robert Simmons, The Book of Stones: Who They Are & What They Teach.
It's a cleansing stone, helping you release negative feelings like guilt & resentment, and it replaces them by leaving behind peace. It helps you let go of the past and of toxic situations that are causing you stress & pain.
And here's an important benefit for those of us being called to create the stories our lives are meant to tell -- peridot helps to calm our spiritual fear and can help give us the courage to move forward on the path we're called to follow.

Love to you!
