The Stabilizer


The person who first introduced me to lepidolite said it was called the "New York City stone" in tribute to its abilities to help alleviate the stresses of living there.

It might just as well be called the London stone, or the Hong Kong stone, I suppose, although part of my loyalty to my former home includes the conviction that nowhere else do people walk and drive so fast, push so much, that no other city on earth offers as many psychic and energetic challenges.

I made much use of lepidolite while I lived in New York, and now that my visits there are infrequent I find the stone even more helpful for its ability to help generate a feeling of inner stability despite outer chaos.

You don't have to be a city dweller, though, to benefit from lepidolite. It is also valuable in helping one to feel stable and grounded in the course of other stressful experiences, such as that of going through transitions. It helps people to reorganize their old ways of thinking and acting so that they can meet the challenge of change.

Much of our resistance to changed becomes lodged in the body, and one way to use lepidolite for aiding in transitions is to place it on different areas of the body in order to release energy blockages and tension.

Lepidolite is itself a transition stone in that its color, a pinkish-lavender, relates to both the heart and third-eye chakras. Thus, in a situation in which one's reasoning mind and one's emotions are in conflict, it could be helpful to meditate with lepidolite on both the heart and third-eye, and to pass a quartz crystal from one point to the other.

Whether you call it the New York City stone or the stability stone, lepidolite is well worth having.
