PERIDOT-Magnesium Iron Silicate Mineral
Key Words: Prosperity, Well-Being, Positivity, Health
Chakras: Solar Plexus (3rd), Heart (4th)
Welcome to my blog and this month's addition- the gorgeous, bright green Peridot.
Emotional: Since ancient times, Peridot has been a symbol of the sun. This August birthstone promotes independence, prosperity, and personal growth. Its healing energies bring an inner sense of warmth and well-being. Think the word Increase; increasing health, joy and well-being, financial success. Peridot is full of positivity, spiritual and financial abundance. Use it also to remove obstacles you may have to receive, release anger and fear promote forgiveness and generally rejuvenate your energy (prana).
Physical: Good for all heart related imbalances, recovery of tobacco addiction, cleansing for blood and better oxygenation. Peridot aids healing in the area of the liver as it stimulates metabolism and helps to detox.
PERIDOT MEDITATION: Sit in a comfortable position with your spine long and shoulders back, eyes closed. Be quiet and focus on slowing your breath. After a few minutes open your eyes and look down on the Peridot stone you may be holding in your hand. Notice the bright green…..slow your breathing down by breathing in through your nose for four counts, hold for a count, then exhale through your nose for four counts. Hold for a count, and repeat for approximately three to four full breath cycles.
Breathe in. Imagine your heart area filling with health, happiness. Imagine it as a warmth that surrounds your heart, your lungs, and finally your entire torso. Use your imagination to feel yourself rise up above so you can look down at yourself objectively, and see the brilliant light that is you. Notice there is no room for jealously, anger, fear, resentment, sadness.
As you remain perched above yourself, envision abundance in any form you are wanting- financial prosperity, love, good health- flowing your way. Notice how you embrace these riches and your light gets brighter and brighter. You are deserving of all good things. The darkness abates. The sadness is gone. There is only light and love and utter joy. As you focus back on your physical body, remind yourself that you are independent and strong. You understand that the past is long gone, and you have everything you need to thrive. You are motivated. You are active. You are joyful.
Thanks for reading. You can see a few Peridot jewelry pieces I have here.
Namaste and Be Well,
Ever since I can remember I have worn and loved jewelry. I have pictures of myself at four dripping in my mother’s long beads and clip on earrings. Then while making jewelry as an adult, I began to wonder about the beautiful beads I was using… stones and crystals found in the earth- the colors, the swirls- the weight, characteristics. For years I have remained curious and open to this concept and do believe in potential in wearing and using certain stones and crystals for added health benefits. But just like astrology, I take it as another tool in my toolbox, not someone to depend on entirely for major decision making, but to enhance my sense of well-being and with the world and nature which surround me. I hope my blogs may educate you and peak your interest, and if nothing else, inspire you, to pick stones which call to you. and to wear more of the jewelry you love.
