In traditional crystal symbology green most directly associated
with healing; while yellow is connected with both the will
and the intellect. Peridot, a vibrant yellow-green, relates
to healing the wounds of the ego.
Peridot: Found in meteorites. Completely aligns all the
subtle bodies. This helps one receive information from the
higher self more easily. Good stone for channelling. Visionary
stone - it helps connect us to our destinies and to an understanding
of the purpose of existence. Keeps the mind free from envious
thoughts and jealousies. A good stone for people who cannot
relate to realities beyond the physical world. Aids in manifesting
physical work into material abundance. A healing stone working
with the heart and solar plexus chakras.
The ego is a fragile construction. Many spiritual people
believe that we'd be better off without ours, but it responds
poorly to punishment and is most likely to dissolve when
treated gently. Thus, emotional injuries such as anger,
jealousy, or generally hurt feelings are best viewed, not
as manifestations of an unevolved soul, but as wounds which
need to be healed.
Peridot can play a valuable role in this healing. If you
use it in a crystal layout, it belongs on the solar plexus,
where it can also, like Rhodochrosite, help to promote slow,
deep breathing. With an Aventurine on the heart centre and
a citrine on the navel, Peridot can act as an instrument
for blending love and will.
A good anti-toxin gem, cleaning most organs and glands,
an overall tonic for the body and mind. Can cleanse and
heal hurt feelings, and helps mend damaged relationships,
also used in treating emotional states such as anger.
Peridot and Leo
There are two primary keywords for the Lion: heart and pride.
The classic Leo personality is that for which the term,
"superiority complex" was coined. Those who know and love
Leos, however, know that their egos are actually very vulnerable,
and they are especially hurt when one of their big-hearted
gestures (and they are big-hearted, often showing great
courage in the protection or defence of others) goes unappreciated.
