Healing Properties of Diopside
Spiritual: Diopside’s energy facilitates a deep connection with the Earth Mother and Gaia energy. It allows us to better understand, communicate, and empathize with the needs of our fellow beings; including other humans, animals, plants, minerals, the Fairy Realm and even the Earth itself. It attracts Nature Spirits to our garden and helps us to take positive action in our own lives to reduce our carbon footprint and be a better steward and caretaker of the planet. Diopside has a refreshing energy that helps us our spirit to feel replenished and grateful for all the good bounty our Earth has to offer. Diopside brings a sense of lightness and joy to our heart, while keeping us deeply connected to the world around us. Diopside is attuned to the Earthstar, Root, and Heart Chakras and linked to the astrological sign of Virgo. It is connected to the element of Earth and vibrates to the Number 9.
Emotional: Diopside has an incredibly soothing and refreshing energy, helping us to feel grounded and centered. Diopside encourages us to actively work to create balance in our lives, which also means taking time to rest and unwind without letting other worries distract us. Diopside helps us to keep things in perspective and to accurately see our own role and influence (or lack thereof!) in any situation. Diopside has a very feminine energy, encouraging us to be more in touch with our emotions and to communicate our wants and needs effectively. It is an excellent stone for pet owners and can help us to better care for our animals. Diopside also reminds us that spending time with animals is very good for our own hearts too.
Mental: Diopside has a wonderful effect on the mind, refreshing the intellect and helping us to see patterns and connections as well as to follow logical conclusions to their end. It is particularly good for helping us better understand mathematics, music, and scientific reasoning. Diopside’s energy can reveal the startlingly beautiful natural world and universe. It helps us to see both simplicity and complexity and to marvel at both with equal delight. This energy can also be turned inward, helping us to see ourselves more accurately and to dispassionately observe where we need to make improvements and how to go about doing that. Diopside is an excellent talisman for scientists as well as for anyone interested in helping to heal and restore our planet.
Physical: Diopside is used by metaphysical healers to heal the physical heart and lungs. It is also used to help the body regenerate and revitalize after surgery, major trauma, or chronic illness. It is said to be particularly beneficial for smokers who are trying to quit, as well as anyone who suffers from the effects of second-hand smoke. Is is also said to be helpful for athletes, especially runners, and can soothe muscle pain and reduce muscle spasms.
