Benefits of Wearing a Therapeutic Lapis Lazuli Necklace
Lapis Lazuli harmonizes your heart and mind as it forges stronger bonds between them. The energy radiated by Lapis can help you experience the energy and power you possess within. This power is greatest when the energies of your mind and heart come together—in other words, when your emotional and mental bodies are working in harmony. Lapis improves the connection, communication, and understanding between your heart and mind. When the mind is attuned to your emotions, it becomes richer, more fruitful, and bountiful. When feelings are illuminated by the mind, emotions are better understood. A strong connection between the heart and mind opens many possibilities. It expands your horizons and your potential.
When you wear Lapis Lazuli around your neck, it gradually and systematically identifies all the significant power points in your body. These points include your acupuncture points, chakras, and, to a lesser extent, your energy meridians. The Lapis then helps these points achieve equilibrium—points with excess magnetic energy are drained, and deficient points are filled with Lapis energy until they can regain their own strength. This promotes healing of the physical body and its energy flows at a fundamental level.
The energy of Lapis’ royal blue color can affect people deeply. This is because its color touches the optic nerve in an unusual way. Your optic nerve picks up impressions of what you see with your physical eyes as well as what you see in your dreams and inner visions. All these impressions stimulate the optic nerve. The energy of Lapis and its royal blue color impresses the optic nerve in a way that reminds your brain of a primordial memory—the memory of that which links you to your divine source.
For this reason, people are comforted and inspired by Lapis’ royal blue color. These feelings are often felt within moments of connecting with Lapis’ energy. When you feel comfortable, you feel freer—and with freedom comes confidence. This confidence gives you courage and the fearless, adventurous spirit needed to realize your dreams and to master life.
It takes practice to become a master, yet the potential to do so is available to everyone. Lapis Lazuli can help you attain mastery, perhaps more so than any other gemstone. This might be mastery of bread baking, piano playing, or of spirit itself. To become a master, first you must see your goal and then you must feel that you have attained it. Lapis can help you have these feelings. Lapis can help you see your goals and dreams and give you the courage to attain them. If you continue to wear Lapis, it will also help you to realize these dreams.
When worn as a necklace, Lapis produces its greatest effects when the necklace falls directly over the heart or as close to the heart as possible.
Lapis Lazuli Tisrati
Placing Lapis Lazuli around the head in a tisrati can result in profoundly heightened mental awareness. To form a tisrati, encircle your head with the necklace so that it lies across your brow chakra and just above your ears. Fasten the necklace at the back of your head with a natural-fiber tie, allowing the excess to fall straight down toward your spine.
Therapeutic Quality Lapis Lazuli
Lapis Lazuli’s therapeutic effectiveness depends on the character of its color and the amount of pyrite it contains. The richer and deeper its royal blue color and the less white it contains, the more powerful the Lapis is. Therapeutic Lapis contains a substantial amount of golden pyrite flecks but not to the point of overpowering the blue areas.
Lapis occurs in a wide continuum of quality, and the very finest quality is quite rare. Lower-quality Lapis is usually dyed to enhance its color and make it seem higher in quality. Unfortunately, any dye applied to Lapis Lazuli clogs its pores and renders it non-therapeutic.
Therapies and Procedures
Lapis Lazuli spheres are placed over the brow chakra to produce a heightened state of awareness, in which the answers to important questions can be learned.
