Let’s face it, we live in a stressful time of uncertainty. With so much chaos in the world how can any of us remain calm and centered? While we can’t change our outer world, we can make some choices about how we react to the world we live in.
That’s where choosing the stone Lepidolite can help us transform our automatic reactions into thoughtful responses that come from a place of calm.
Life is filled with change and change can be a trigger point of stress, fear, worry and anxiety.
Because Lepidolite is a lithium based stone it is most effective for calming frayed nerves, helping us to release stress and worry. Lithium is used in anti- anxiety and depression medications. Lepidolite can help to ease negative thoughts and soothe emotions such as grief, anger and depression. Lepidolite can also help to remove emotional attachments such as resentment and envy.
Lepidolite helps to clear blocked energies in any of the Chakras throughout the meridian system. It is especially comforting to the Heart Chakra, the energy center that is most often effective with changes in our lives that we don’t choose. Lepidolite helps to transform negative energy and encourages peace, forgiveness, safety, harmony and unity.
Collecting Lepidolite in Colorado
I love to go crystal digging (see my post about digging for crystals in Arkansas) Two summers ago I was invited to go crystal collecting in central Colorado for Lepidolite. With special permission we were able to dig at an old lithium mine. The mine was located in a beautiful setting over 7,000 feet in a remote area very hard to find. A four wheel drive vehicle was necessary to make it up the rugged hills. Once we found the old mine, we were in heaven, as there was plenty of lepidolite to be found. From small pieces of Lepidolite mica to larger hard pieces mixed in with pegmatite, it was fairly easy to collect a 5 gallon bucket in a hour or so.
At one point, I found myself sitting up against a large pine tree in what I call a blissed out lepidolite haze. I was so calm, so relaxed and at peace with the beauty around me that I had totally forgotten why I was there. That’s when my friend who was collecting with me came over and asked me what I was doing and if I was already finished collecting these treasures. Of course I wasn’t finished! I was in a place of contentment surrounded by all this Lepidolite. Still till this day, if I’m stressed or worried I can bring myself back to that day on that mountain in Colorado and tune right in to the peaceful energy of Lepidolite.
So, if you are ready to let go of stress, worry and anxiety call on the peaceful easy vibration of Lepidolite.
