One things I have found this crystal works remarkably well when it coming to seeing your own light. It’s something that can be hard to do, but you can make headway while meditating with Peridot or even just by carrying it on your person; it also helps you to forgive yourself. No one is perfect, and Peridot can help you see that, and helps you to deal with any negative feelings or guilt, especially if it is self-imposed.
