Option 1: Enter into a meditative state by repeating the affirmation: I focus my energy on the present moment and express myself with joyfulness and love. As your mind begins to center into the moment, allow yourself to step into your emotions. Feel each one as it comes to you. It may be helpful to name the emotions you are feeling. Ask each one what its message is for you. Do your best to allow the feelings to ebb and flow naturally by not over-identifying with them. When you feel complete, send gratitude to your emotions, to the Ocean Jasper for its loving guidance and support, and to yourself for honoring the depth of your experience.
Option 2:Working with Ocean Jasper is all about reconnecting thoughts with actions. Like the earth needs the ocean, each one exists in a symbiotic relationship that requires one another. Sit comfortably with Ocean Jasper in hand. It is even better if you can do this near a natural body of water! When you have settled into a breathing rhythm, let any negative emotions surface.

It can be anything from being more present, compassionate, or determined. This practice can help you decide how to react as long as it is in accordance with your intention.
