Information is purely my own knowledge in my own words this time.
Lepidolite is the core crystal of the third eye chakra – that area between our physical eyes at our brow and our centre for psychic development. The third eye chakra governs a number of human and esoteric functions, including sleep, rest, dreaming and the ability to astral travel and have lucid dreams. Lepidolite is your go-to crystal for insomnia, nightmares, night terrors or unsatisfactory sleep patterns – but it comes with a caution attached – use sparingly and carefully, because this stone has some serious power behind it and too much too soon can make the problem worse or manifest other sleep problems. Therefore, start with it by your bedside, then place on the floor at the head end of your bed, then under your mattress at the head end of your bed – never under your pillow. Cleanse it daily – the best form of cleansing is on an amethyst cluster, but angel spray or incense and a gentle wipe is also effective. Water cleansing is not appropriate as its surface is soft and can be damaged by water. After working with it for 2 weeks, take a break for a week and repeat if necessary.
The incredible power it wields can be used by those well attuned to crystals for spiritual development. It can boost your psychic skills generally as it opens the third eye chakra, but rather more specifically, it increases your capacity to astral travel during sleep or meditation, and/or induces lucid dreaming. Typically this is characterised in the first instance by an out of body experience in the sleep or meditation state, where one rises from their physical body and views it from the ceiling, and then may “fly” elsewhere. Though it is a third eye crystal, I would not recommend it be placed directly on the third eye due to its potency. It also is not as suitable as gentler third eye crystals such as amethyst or purple fluorite for headaches, migraine or depression. You can also meditate with lepidolite in your receiving (opposite to writing) hand, and should do so incrementally, for example 5 minutes the first time, rising to 10 minutes the second time, to a maximum of 30 minutes. This is particularly conducive to discovering and healing from past lives and their karma. I didn’t think about this until today, but lepidolite is also a stone which carries fragments of the vibration of Archangel Metatron, the angel of ascension and spiritual teacher of the angels.
