My 12 year old daughter has bi-polar disorder. She hates being bi-polar. I feel she would benefit from learning and applying that knowledge of crystals to better gain control of herself. She has expressed an interest in this. I need help in finding a good, easy to understand book and which crystals I should get for her. My own knowledge is very small, I'm hoping she can teach me.
Thanks for your email. I do not know of a book that discusses crystals and bi-polar disorder specifically, but I would recommend Lepidolite and Lithium Quartz as two good choices.
Lepidolite - Known as "the stone of transition", Lepidolite helps shift and restructure old energy patterns and brings light and hope to a situation. Use Lepidolite to reduce stress associated with change. Lepidolite is known to alleviate depression, bringing serenity from the knowledge that the Universe will always provide. The calming nature of Lepidolite can help one to enter a deep meditative state. Lepidolite is helpful for releasing emotional and energetic blockages, and is said to help those with ADD, OCD, or Bipolar disorder.
Lithium Quartz - The Lithium contained in this Quartz is the same mineral used in antidepressant medication, but in its pure form as it comes out of the Earth. When combined with Clear Quartz, the natural antidepressant properties of Lithium are amplified. Very popular for its metaphysical properties, Lithium Quartz brings emotional peace, stress release, and relaxation. A powerful, yet gentle healer, Lithium Quartz balances the brain and the emotions. Calming and soothing, Lithium Quartz uplifts the mental and emotional bodies, and gently moves repressed anger and grief to the surface so it can be healed. Lithium Quartz Crystal can also heal emotional issues from past lives.
In addition to these two stones, I would also recommend some grounding stones such as black tourmaline.
Black Tourmaline - Black Tourmaline is a very popular stone in metaphysical circles, having many uses. Supportive Black Tourmaline is used for protecting one's energy field against negative vibrations, and also for drawing negative energies away from a person. It can have a calming effect when needed, grounding flighty or scattered energies into the earth. Those who suffer from negativity, frequent worrying, and/or OCD can work with Black Tourmaline to help heal these issues. Black Tourmaline cleanses, purifies, and transforms dense energy into a lighter vibration. Black Tourmaline is a fantastic stone for grounding and protection, and aids in opening up the Root Chakra. Physically, Black Tourmaline is a purifying and detoxifying stone, helpful in cleansing the body.
