Imperial Jasper has it strongest tradition in Judaic lore, where it is one of the twelve sacred stones used to denote the Imperial families or tribes of Israel. It is said to occupy a position on the High Priest’s breastplate and is the first foundation stone of the walls of the heavenly city. It therefore also symbolizes the first of the twelve gateways into Heaven. Imperial Jasper is said to help you withstand heavy negativity. It is also said to stabilize emotions, provide protection (as all Jaspers do) and reduce fears and insecurities. Imperial Jasper lets us see the divinity in everything we do and perceive the ordinariness of the unfolding spiritual path. It makes unity and wholeness not just possible, but that the idea of separate facets of our being – body, mind, heart and spirit - all are divided between the world around us and our spiritual path as just that, an idea. Imperial Jasper reminds us that the only conflict that exists between our bodies and spirits is our belief that one exists. (http://lifestreasureskauai.com/blog/crystals/jasper-a-gift-from-god/)
In other words, what Imperial Jasper tells us is that there is another possibility, a place where there is no division between the secular and the sacred - the material and the physical. There is a place where we can see the divinity in everything we do and perceive the ordinariness of the unfolding spiritual path. Where every moment is a chance for exercising ourselves spiritually, of reaching further into our truth and integrating it more fully into here. Then we are able to dissolve the illusion of separation which keeps us struggling to find ways to integrate something that is already integrated in reality. (Copyright © 1997-2008 Avalon Crystals.

Imperial Jasper is seen to personify our journey towards God or our Higher Power. The forgetting of what we have been before and the revealing of who we are as spiritual beings - the suffering of tribulation in this present world and the end of suffering by living from a soul state. This rare Jasper allows us to understand that we are a part of our Higher Power (God) and everything, and that we never have to be afraid. Royal Imperial jasper provides protection to reduce fears and insecurities.
It provides protection from other people, forces and even from yourself! It can keep you from getting carried away, or lead astray, and being diverted from your goals. Jasper helps to give you courage in preparation for conflict, either physical or emotional.
