Metaphysical Meaning of Lepidolite

The soothing energy of Lepidolite is something that so many people can benefit from. The pace of modern life is stressful, and sometimes there is truly nothing better than a classic, calming stone. This is a wonderful stone for promoting joy, gratitude, and self-love, yet all in an extremely calm and serene way. This is not necessarily a stone that will have you jumping for joy, but it is one that will put a smile on your face while you go about your daily business, and when you come right down to it, that may be even more powerful.

Lepidolite for Healing: Lepidolite can help you through difficult times in your life, especially times of either change or of mourning (which, really, is a profound change). This stone has a unique power to relieve emotional suffering, by helping you become awakened to the joy present in the universe. It is very easy, when we are distressed, to blind ourselves to happiness. In fact, seeing happiness can make the pain all the more acute at times. This is a natural part of the grieving process, but not a comfortable one. Lepidolite can help us get through this phase as quickly as possible and start finding reasons for gratitude again. The psychic vibrations of lepidolite have the incredible power of helping you become attuned with the divine powers both of the universe and within yourself.

The importance of this cannot be understated: when you recognize the divinity within yourself, you will become a much happier and more successful person in every field of your life. Recognizing divinity in yourself may be the most underrated form of mysticism in the modern world. The spiritual energy of lepidolite will lead you into happiness by extension. Once you recognize yourself as a divine being, a worthy part of the cosmic order, then you will come to understand that you deserve love, happiness, and success, and you will come to expect it. By expecting happiness, you prime yourself to be ready for it when it appears (as it always will, eventually).

How Will Lepidolite Help You?

Lepidolite will help you most in dealing with issues that are either paining or limiting you on a psychic level. This may include issues of grief or mourning, depression, or simply a feeling of apathy or being “out of place” in the cosmic order (which is, in fact, at the core of many people’s descriptions of their depressive episodes). Upsetting experiences or traumas throw our emotions into confusion and make it incredibly difficult to even understand what we are feeling, much less deal with those feelings in a constructive manner. Lepidolite will help prevent you from becoming caught up in the whirlwind of emotions, which is not a good place to stay for very long. It can help you make sense of your emotions and approach them healthily in order to make the changes that are necessary for improving your life.

How to Use Lepidolite for the Best Results?

As lepidolite is a rather soft stone, it is not ideal for many forms of jewelry. If you choose to wear it, then it is best worn as a pendant, brooch, or other forms of jewelry that is unlikely to get banged around or come into contact with harsh chemicals or high temperatures. If you are interested in divination, a pendant made of lepidolite makes an excellent pendulum, and can help you come to answers for questions about spirituality, divinity, and your own emotions. It can, of course, also be used to answer unrelated questions, as all pendulums can, but these fields are the ones that this pendulum is best suited to. For enthusiasts of divination, a polished disc or sphere of lepidolite also makes a wonderful surface for scrying.
