Jade is prized for it's healing and protective qualities. It harmonizes and balances the heart, aiding in both emotional and physical well-being. It helps strengthen and soothe one's nervous system. It assists one in learning to enjoy physical life. It reminds one to "smell the roses," touch someone you love, and share your abundant heart with others. Jade is good for attracting abundance and prosperity and for broadcasting peace and loving-kindness to all in one's surroundings. It helps one to receive Divine abundance on all levels and to share that abundance with others, in affirmations of plenty. Helps heal scarcity-mindedness, fear of money and poverty and other symptoms of belief in money as a measure of worth.
