Healing Properties of Peridot
Spiritual: Peridot is one for great stones of abundance helping us to recognize, honor and embrace abundance in our own lives. This can include material wealth, but also spiritual wealth. It is a stone that helps to break down barriers within us, barriers which prevent us from reaching our full potential. With Peridot’s aid, we become happier, healthier, and increasingly wise. Peridot can also help us to attune with other realms, such as Fairy, and to become better attuned to the animal and plant kingdoms. Peridot is attuned to the Solar Plexus and Heart Chakras and linked to the astrological signs of Leo, Virgo, Scorpio, Sagittarius. It is connected to the element of Earth and vibrates to the numbers 5, 6, and 7.
Emotional: Peridot is a joyful stone which reminds us that our inner child needs to play and receive. Many of us are good at giving our love and time away freely, but struggle to receive. Peridot teaches us that we are meant to receive as well! It reminds us that we are worthy of receiving and should be showered with gifts from the universe. When we accept this idea, it changes the way we look at the world and interact with it. Our actions, in turn, dramatically change how the world responds to us. When we live like we deserve to be happy, we end up very happy indeed!
Mental: Peridot helps us explore new ideas and be more social. It helps to attract and keep friends and colleagues who can help us move forward on our life path. Peridot encourages us to be gracious, open-minded and open-hearted, and willing to try something new. It is particularly helpful for scientists who are feeling “stuck” and need to see things from a different angle. Peridot’s playful energy makes it easier to collaborate with others, and helps to keep egos in check.
Physical: Peridot is most commonly used by metaphysical healers to treat depression and anxiety. It is also believed to be a helpful tonic, when used in elixirs, to help strengthen and heal the body in general, and the heart and blood in particular. It has been used to relieve ulcers and stomach pain, and to ease the pain of childbirth. It is also said to be helpful for treating chemical addictions.
