Lately, almost everyone I talk to at shows or in healing sessions will sooner or later ask me – “What is a good stone to relieve stress, to calm me, to bring more balance into my life?” My go-to response for this is lithium quartz, or lepidolite (which also contains lithium).

The calm and soothing feeling you get simply by holding this stone in your hand is amazing.  One of the best things about lithium quartz is its ability to help us make transformational changes peacefully and equably.  It enhances clarity and the ability to see where the next step may be, before we go off in a hundred different directions.

Meditation with Lithium Quartz

Use lithium quartz in meditation to help you gain clarity about discarding what you no longer need in order to help you to move forward.  With its gentle balancing energy, it will make any information you receive, or changes you must make, seem easy and effortless (or at least easier than they can sometimes seem).  When in meditation with this stone, it can be helpful to have a pen and paper nearby to write down thoughts and intuitions about your next steps of transformation.

Lithium Quartz and the Physical Body

This crystal also works with the central nervous system in the physical body.  It is useful to employ when there seem to be energy blasts from the Universe that are not easily absorbed by the body, such as the recent sun storms.  It becomes a bridge between energy and matter, allowing the physical body to more easily adapt to higher energies.

I like to use lithium quartz on my heart chakra, or with clients on their heart chakra.  It brings about a sense that everything is in perfect order, there is nothing to worry about.

Lepidolite, in its tumbled form is also a good stone to use for balance and stress relief.  It is another stone that contains lithium.  This stone is good to use by your bed or under your pillow to bring on sleep, or enhance your rest.  It is a balancer of emotional energies and is hellpful in quieting those voices in the head that keep us from sleep.
