Lapis Lazuli | The Magic of Crystals

Lapis Lazuli

Energy Center: 3rd Eye

The Full Scoop: Lapis Lazuli is a powerful stone for stimulating your intuition and thirst for knowledge.  It does this by activating your Third Eye Energy Center.  This tends to be much more right-brain or creative thinking. However, it can also assist with logical or left-brain thinking.

The difference, of course, is that creative thinking can be very expansive and has a sense of limitlessness about it. As your mind wanders and you start to see images or connect random dots, you begin to form new pictures, even around old ideas.

This is especially true for those who are seeking a deeper understanding of the spiritual journey they are on.  It strengthens the connection to Higher Guidance and our access to Divine inspiration.

It may seem at first a bit like day-dreaming; however, you begin to notice that you are quite alert.  You sense that there is a thread that connects your thoughts and images. Your curiosity is engaged and you actively begin to put the pieces together.

When you are engaging your logical mind, one of the actions that Lapis Lazuli does is quell the chatter.  You may feel as if you have a lot of data to sort through and that the majority of it feels relevant. You are not as distracted by fly-by information that pulls you away from your area of focus.

In either of these situations—creative or logical thinking—the gift of Lapis Lazuli is that it is a stone of self-knowledge and reflection.  It expands your awareness of your motivations and how your beliefs are playing various roles in your thought processes.

In so many of the situations in our lives we come to the table with preset ideas that, for the most part, we are not paying attention to.  As an example, if we are focusing on creating a relationship and one of our beliefs is that “relationships are hard” we view the opportunities that present themselves through that lens.  If we can step back and see that this is one of our core beliefs and how it influences the choices we are making, we have the opportunity to make changes.  Lapis Lazuli will assist in this process.

The same is true for our motivations.  Many times we convince ourselves that we are motivated for the Highest Good. Of course, when we are, everything seems to flow with more ease and less effort. However, saying we are doing something for the Highest Good when we are motivated by something that is self-serving is not the same thing.  Lapis will help you connect with your motivations. The good news is that when we know what our motivations are we, then, have the opportunity to align our personal motivations WITH the Highest Good to create a win-win situation.

Finally, Lapis Lazuli can help you communicate your truth.  As you assimilate new information, understand your motivations and beliefs and expand your personal knowledge, it will help you express it.  One of the greatest reasons for this is that we know ourselves better.  As we build this awareness, we stand in the comfort of seeing where we truly are.  This does not mean we are where we want to be. We may still see many areas that we would like to focus on, beliefs we want to shift or motivations we wish to change. However, we know ourselves where we are and this allows for clearer and cleaner communications with others.
