Lapis Lazuli - Large & Medium Pieces & Tumblestones
Lapis Lazuli is the stone of kings and queens, rulers and leaders, and gods and goddesses. To decide to work with Lapis Lazuli is to choose to take control of your life. It brings you knowledge and direction and shows you how to apply this information. It helps you see the bigger picture, to put everything into perspective, and to make decisions for the greater good. It allows you to be liberated from compromises that impinge on your integrity or honesty. Let Lapis Lazuli support you in ruling your kingdom.
Here are some great ways to work with your Lapis Lazuli from Adam Barralet:
**Sit outside, ideally at night under the stars, with your Lapis Lazuli. Ask it to guide you to some newfound wisdom. There may be something you are currently facing that you need help with, or you may just wish for some general insight. Light a stick of sandalwood or Nag Champa incense. Watch the smoke rise and dance in the wind as you hold your crystal. Maybe the answers will come as shapes in the smoke. Perhaps by simply watching the smoke you will still your mind enough to allow inspiration to come. Just relax and allow.
Rest with the stone upon your forehead during meditation. Lapis Lazuli is great for maintaining balance of the third eye chakra.
**Lapis Lazuli will allow you to move towards independence so that you can take control of the success in your life, both professionally and personally. Lapis Lazuli heightens your awareness, increasing your ability to see opportunities and avoid problems. This newfound ability to see clearly can manifest physically, improving your eyesight, especially at night. To utilise this aspect of Lapis Lazuli’s magic, wear it near your eyes or rest with it on your eyes each day. You can also place Lapis Lazuli in water for 24 hours and then combine one drop of the charged water for each eye with your eye cream in the morning.
**If you need to have a “heart-to-heart” conversation with someone wear Lapis Lazuli over your chest and/or place in around the room where the talk will happen. As a stone of truth and honesty, it will ensure all runs smoothly.
**Lapis Lazuli works to promote the cleansing of air. Set up a grid to cleanse the air in your home or workspace. Find four indoor plants renowned for their air filtering skills such as aloe vera, spider plant, peace lily, Chinese evergreen or English ivy. Place them at the four sides of your house and place a lapis in the pots. Lapis Lazuli can also be used to strengthen any larger scale effort to reduce air pollution or repair the ozone layer.
We love Adam Barralet's work and recommend his book Crystal Connections for more information on working with each crystal, cleansing, connecting and feeling the full benefits of these beauties.
