Chinese parents often give a jade bracelet as a gift to their daughters as a symbol of their love and protection. The wisdom and mystery of jade are passed down from mother to daughter as folklore. Jade is understood as being a symbol that represents the virtues of compassion, courage, justice, wisdom, and modesty.

But what if the jade bracelet breaks? Does it mean that the person is ill or sick? No. In fact, it is the contrary. If a woman’s jade bracelet breaks apart, then that means something terrible was about to occur, yet the jade took the damage. In other words, protecting her. Because of this belief, many Chinese women would wear jade bracelets as they believe that jade bracelets would help protect them from accidents.

In a post, HERE I said that after nearly losing my jade bracelet while on holiday in Cyprus, once home, I placed it in my jewellery box and there it remained ever since. It has to be nearly 12 years!! Wow, time flies. Well, the years have been pretty tough in one way or another, and this year, 2017 has been a beast!
I was alerted via email that someone left a message on my 2017 New Year post.

On visiting to leave a reply, no message was there. Weird. Anyway, at  the bottom of the post, while looking for the message, I read:

I used to wear a green jade bracelet and it broke clean in half. It was replaced with another of lavender jade. I haven't worn it in years...

Actually, twelve an a half years ago, that makes it around the last year of the rooster (as every twelve yrs - my sign). Full circle. That was the only sign I needed to run upstairs and retrieve my bracelet from the darkness of the box. Lol. So, now it adorns my left wrist once more. Feels good too. 💖

Jade Meaning

Its deep and striking variations of green resonate with the heart chakra, the energy center that helps ward off a case of the ‘blahs’ or what intellectuals call the existential crisis. Use Jade healing properties to open up your heart to unconditional love and feel the power of the universe and its life-giving combination of water mixed with the earth. A miracle that evolved out of the primordial ooze, the Jade crystal is the magical link to our vast universe and the very essence of life.

Jumpstart your meditation practice with the lush and verdant shades of Jade, the good luck crystal that brings abundance and prosperity to your life. Start by creating a sacred space free of clutter and any other distractions. Cleanse the space by smudging it with a sage smudge stick and place a lit candle near the stone, which sets the mood for a magical crystal healing treatment. To get the most out of your therapeutic session, borrow from the wisdom of the ancient Zen tradition and gaze at the stone. Contemplate peacefully on your intention, which will be stored in the crystal to be accessed any time you need it. Like having a trusted mentor on speed dial, call on Jade next time you wish upon a star.

Sit quietly with the stone for 20 minutes, reflecting on gratitude and its warming effects on the heart. With every deep breath, hold the stone in your hands, breathe in the powerful healing properties of Jade and take a deep exhale, releasing all the pain and worry holding you back from your natural state of joy. Jade also adds a pop of color to your home decor while giving off vibes of peace and prosperity. If you feel drawn to the spirit world, Jade also makes a great wingman. Place it on the third chakra and let its bright, dazzling hues illuminate your path towards enlightenment and higher consciousness.

When you incorporate Jade into your daily life, get ready for an opportunity to rock.

Healing

Jade is a special stone that is believed to promote wisdom, balance, and peace. It has spiritual attributes, which are extremely distinct. This prehistoric sign of calm and peace is a unique, strong piece of tool that encourages our consciousness to increase at a higher level. However, jade gemstones perform such function in a restrained and humble way. Because of its extraordinary broad effectiveness, this gemstone is frequently categorized together with the diamond.

Since the prehistoric time, Jade was regarded as a gemstone of nobility, power, and royalty most particularly in the East. It was considered as a manifestation of the worldwide ideology. The jade gemstone corresponds to the atmosphere of the Planet Neptune. Thus, the reason why people who are born with astrological signs representing a water element are mostly fascinated with jade.

Jade is a special gemstone of healing and stability. It relieves anxiety and lightens emotions developed from fear. This stone is one of the many gemstones, which never allow any negative energy or negative influences to affect the individual wearing it. It does not allow the entry of any external negative vibration. It simply protects people from getting disturbed by negative influences as it continues to emit cleansing and calming aura. Jade can also establish a closer connection between the different stages of the intellectual part of the body. Hence, it improves the mental capacity of a person. The ancient people from the East have known all the healing properties of Jade for hundreds of years.

Mercy Goddess 
Guanyin or Guan Yin is an East Asian bodhisattva associated with compassion as venerated by Mahayana Buddhists. She is commonly known as the "Goddess of Mercy" in English. The Chinese name Guanyin is short for Guanshiyin, meaning "[The One Who] Perceives the Sounds of the World".
Some Buddhists believe that when one of their adherents departs from this world, they are placed by Guanyin in the heart of a lotus, and then sent to the western Pure Land of Sukhāvatī. The relative time-flow in the pure lands may be different, with a day in one pure land being equivalent to years in another. This is much like the Western 'Fairyland'.
Guanyin is often referred to as the "most widely beloved Buddhist Divinity" with miraculous powers to assist all those who pray to her, as is said in the Lotus Sutra and Karandavyuha Sutra.
One Buddhist legend from the Complete Tale of Guanyin and the Southern Seas presents Guanyin as vowing to never rest until she had freed all sentient beings from saáčƒsāra or cycle of rebirth.

Some Buddhist and Christian observers have commented on the similarity between Guanyin and the Blessed Virgin Mary. This can be attributed to the representation of Guanyin holding a child in Chinese art and sculpture; it is believed that Guanyin is the patron saint of mothers and grants parents filial children, this apparition is popularly known as the "Child-Sending Guanyin".One example of this comparison can be found in the Tzu Chi Foundation, a Taiwanese Buddhist humanitarian organisation, which noticed the similarity between this form of Guanyin and the Virgin Mary. The organisation commissioned a portrait of Guanyin holding a baby, closely resembling the typical Roman Catholic Madonna and Child painting. Copies of this portrait are now displayed prominently in Tzu Chi affiliated medical centres.
