Mookaite Jasper Gains Respect for Anti-Aging Properties, Nurturing Qualities During Isolation
By Eliza Marie Somers
I’ve never given much thought to Mookaite Jasper. It didn’t enthrall me like Kambaba Jasper, which reminds me of the planets, stars and universe. Mookaite was, well, just OK. Its muted earth-tone colors ranging from tan, orange, brown, mauve, pink and purple were interesting, but they never captured my curiosity. I had a few pieces sitting on my display shelf, and they pretty much stayed there.
UNTIL … a young woman came in the store and exclaimed, “You have Mookaite!” I immediately turned around and said, “Yes we have bracelets and tumbled stones. Why, what do you know about Mookaite that I don’t?”
“It’s anti-aging,” she said as she enthusiastically scanned the Mookaite bracelets.
Well, that perked me up. I had never heard that about Mookaite Jasper! It turns out this young lady is an esthetician, and she uses a Mookaite Gua Sha stone for facials. She said it promotes youthfulness.
So, of course, I had to do some research, and outside of a Google search, information is scarce on Mookaite Jasper. Out of my many books, only four had information about Mookaite.
First, let’s look at what the expert Melody says about Jaspers as a whole.
Melody calls all Jaspers “supreme nurturers,” in her book “Love is in The Earth.” Gosh, we all sure could use some nurturing right now! She goes on to state Jaspers “act as a reminder that one is not here, on this physical plane, just for oneself, but is also here to bring joy and substance to others, assisting others to release the bonds of constraint.”
And I found this hidden gem of information that is perfect for the times we are living. It seems Jaspers are excellent for dealing with our quarantine lifestyles caused by the coronavirus pandemic. “It is conducive to awareness and to allowing one to celebrate the situation of isolation,” Melody states.
Some more interesting information about Jaspers. They were considered sacred stones by Native Americans during the performance of the “old ways,” and were worn by shamans as a stone of protection. They also were one of the stones in Aaron’s (the high priest and Noah’s brother) breastplate.
Yellow Jaspers can be used to assist and protect during times of travel, spiritual and physical. Red Jaspers are good for health and re-birth, allowing for fresh ideas. While Jaspers containing blue colors are used to connect to the “after” worlds. Jaspers protect against negativity, and help one to stay grounded in Earth energy.
Now on to Mookaite Jasper, which was named after the site of the discovery, Mooka Station in Western Australia.
Mookaite helps one be pragmatic or to find practical solutions. It helps with dealing with negative situations and provides a “shield of uncompromising strength when one confronts danger,” according to Melody. It provides companionship when one is alone, and helps us to be kind to ourself and others. It is also helpful in communicating with animals and ascended loved-ones.
“The Book of Stones” by Robert Simmons and Naisha Ahsian is where I found a reference to Mookaite as a stone that helps slow the aging process, along with intergenerational healing. Ahsian states Mookaite Jasper slows the aging process by raising one’s vibration in body and thought, and can clear unhealthy patterns from the genetic code.
“Mook Jasper is a powerful reminder of the ageless spirit,” Ahsian writes. It “assists one in maintaining an ageless mind and body.”
Physical aging is slowed by raising one’s thoughts about the aging process. So, think young at heart, and/or you are only as old as you think you are, and your physical body will follow.
She also likes Mookaite for pregnancy, reproduction and the regeneration of the physical body. “It is an excellent stone for pregnant couples, as it can facilitate intuitive communication with the unborn child.”
I like that it can be used to identify and understand emotional and behavioral patterns handed-down from our ancestors, allowing us to release unhealthy patterns so future generations won’t have to repeat them.
Margaret Ann Lembo in her book “The Essential Guide to Crystals, Minerals and Stones,” describes Mookaite as an excellent stone to keep your mind focused on the task at hand. So, keeping a piece on your work desk will help quiet distracting thoughts. She also states it is the “perfect antidote for procrastination.”
Mookaite is good for weight loss, and the health of the stomach and thyroid, states Philip Permutt in his book, “The Crystal Healer.” He also notes Mookaite is good for dreams, building self-esteem and moving forward in life.
After researching Mookaite Jasper, it has earned a place of esteem in my book. It is no longer sitting on a shelf, as I am using it in meditations to help with the isolation of quarantine lifestyle and to release unhealthy ancestral patterns. I’ll also carry it when traveling for its protective qualities.
Oh, and those anti-aging properties? I haven’t forgotten about those!
