Red Jasper is a protective stone and can be worn or added to a charm bag to ward off nightmares, prevent accidents and bad luck or to strengthen your will and determination. The stone is sometimes used in demonic invocations and meditation with Red Jasper can help you uncover the secret knowledge that demons are said to possess. Some people are horrified at the idea of working with demonic energy, but it is worth remembering that 'the Gods of the old religion become the Demons of the new'. In the ancient world demons were believed to be wise guardian spirits; the word 'demon' is derived from the Greek name 'daimon', which is usually translated as 'replete with wisdom'. Many modern magic users consider 'demons' to be symbolic of the more chaotic, passionate and emotional aspects of human nature or the raw, untamed energy of the Earth.
