Dioptase is a brilliant green crystal that help you deal with tough emotional trauma. It helps you find your place in situations that are difficult and accept that you have done everything you can. A lot of times it feels almost as it the world is spinning out of control and there is nothing you can do, the great thing about this stone is its ability to help you realize you HAVE done what you can do and that there is nothing to feel sad or remorseful about.
I have mentioned already that my mother is dealing with Lymphoma and a mass in her chest. She has her good days and her bad days. I get so angry because it feels, at times, as though there is nothing I can do to help her. I am not a doctor, or certified in any way, but I have my faith in the gods and my beliefs in crystals and herbs. So, I do what I know I can. I research stones and herbs and fix teas and bracelets for her to drink and wear along with her medically prescribed treatment. I can’t imagine what she is going through mentally, emotionally and or physically. This woman has not only been an amazing mother but she is my best friend, my therapist, my comedian, my rock, my shoulder and my idle. She is the person who taught me to be strong and smart, so, how can I accept that this is life and that my best is all I can do?
The way I accept this, besides working with Dioptase, is realizing that eventually a day would come where she wouldn’t be on this plane of existence. One day her soul will no longer be here, but this does not mean she is gone, this simply means she in a different place. As long as I have lived a full and fruitful life and lived by a set of morals she would be proud of, then her life will mean something.
While my mother is still with us and courageously fighting this battle with lymphoma tooth and nail, which if you have never met the woman you would know to be scared when she says “The bitch is back, screw lymphoma!” LOL. We think positive, we live positive, we say I love you more and we say bye more. We appreciate each other and understand that life is short, healthy or not, and have learned that if you can accept that life just IS, then you ARE doing your best.
