Buddhists used Lapis to bring inner peace and freedom from negative thought. The stone is highly regarded as a stone of friendship and truth, encouraging harmony in relationships, revealing inner truth, and promoting self-awareness and the acceptance of knowledge. It is powerful for enhancing intellectual ability, both in helping during the learning process, and in enhancing memory.
Lapis activates the psychic center at the Third Eye. In meditation, Lapis is a visionary stone, bringing information to mind as images, and allowing you to receive visual guidance or information.. The energy of the blue crystals may intensify the growth of intuition, and may aid you in connecting with your guardian angels.
Lapis is a great stone to wear, as it quickly releases stress, anger, and negative thoughts, and promotes peace and serenity. Lapis pendants worn near the throat are effective in stimulating psychic abilities.
It is also used as a protection stone, blocking psychic attack and sending negative energy back to its source.
Physically, Lapis helps with the immune system, thyroid, and nervous system. It can help to ease headaches and pain. It is thought to boost the immune system, lower blood pressure and soothe inflammation. It may also may help ease insomnia and vertigo, and the blue color may be an antidote to depression.
Lapis is also used to balance the energy of the Throat Chakra. Physically, it is beneficial to the throat, and can help with problems related to hearing and nasal passages*.
The color of Lapis varies a lot, depending on the combination with other minerals, so you will usually see color variations in Lapis stones. It is not a hard stone, and should be isolated from other stones to prevent damage.
Wear the peaceful energy of Lapis, along with grounding energies of Agate, Jade, Tiger Eye and Lapis Lazuli with this bracelet. (Note: The Turquoise is a synthetic stone.)
