Dear Spiritual Explorer: Could you talk about the properties of lapis lazuli? Rose M., Jacksonville, FL
Dear Rose: Looking at the Lapis Pendant at Ma’s India I am reminded of the beauty of this stone. Its spiritual resonance dates back to 3000 BC, around the time of the Pharaohs. Highly valued by the Egyptians, it is said that the lapis lazuli stone was discovered in the tomb of Pharaoh King Tutankhamen.
Lapis lazuli is a stone denoting royalty and spirituality. It is said that the Catholic Church, long aware of lapis’ worth, had amassed storehouses of lapis in various churches in South America. Whether or not this story is apocryphal, I can only say that the Church has long recognized the value of the stone, both for its beauty and spiritual power. It is felt that lapis lazuli can create feelings of peace and harmony and bring to the aspirant the gift of wisdom and clairvoyance.
It is said that the vibration of lapis lazuli aids one in developing a profound conviction and depth of faith, along with an understanding of spirituality and the challenges that arise out of one’s journey. It is reported that these deep and intense blue stones can open your third eye and stimulate the pineal gland. I have personally seen many shades of stones reported to be lapis; however, I admit that I am much more inclined to purchase those of the deepest hue.
A friend of mine swears that lapis lazuli can be used to relieve anger and negative thoughts. I know that just by looking at the stone causes me to go deeper within myself and the coolness of the stone could easily remedy feelings of anger.
Many people interested in enhancing psychic abilities such as intuition, channeling or contacting guardian angels are very interested in the properties of lapis lazuli.
There is no doubt that this is a stone very much in demand.
