Jade for November

If you wear jade as "medicine", and use the jade qi energy for health and wellness, November  is the month you want jade that balances the Metal meridian.

The month of November is related to the lungs and lung meridian, which is the metal element. Often people feel the emotion of grief in November, which is the lung qi being out of balance. Expressing feelings of grief help to rid the body of this excess. Keep grief bottled up inside can lead to problems breathing, and contribute to the growth of tumors or cancer. Breath is essential to life.

The Chinese term chi is usually translated as energy, but it really means breath. The energy of the body is the breath of the body; the energy of the heart is the breath of the heart. They are one and the same.

So if you wish to guard your health and enhance it, one of the best things you can do is engage in some form of spiritual meditation that emphasize breath. Not only will this energize you, it will clear much of the grief we all experience by living in this world. Excess grief exaggerates the force of contraction, crushing the heart nestled within the canopy of the lung. But grief can be cleared, restoring our connection to the love of the world and the divine, which are ever-present. If you are an advanced meditation practitioner, you can learn Tonglen meditation, using your breath as medicine to heal yourself, and to go a step further, practicing into the world. 

If you wear jade for health, this is a good time to wear your white jade, as white is the color associated with lung qi that also has moss or green viens.. "Winter white" jade is not pure white, but has other hues of lavender, gray and/or green to help balance the stark white energy. Most of the "lao pit" soft white with green veins have just the right qi for this time of year.
