Emotional Healing

Lapis Lazuli can help you to understand when you are not seeing reality clearly. We are all subject to having our perceptions skewed by past experiences such as trauma, major hits to the ego, or even really positive experiences. Reality can be hard to unravel.

Lapis Lazuli can aid you in discovering when you are operating from your shadow projections. Shadow is used to describe the subconscious. When out of power, it can be really easy to allow old outmoded scripts to play out without being mindful of the actual situation. This is called projecting. Lapis can help to soothe the ego and allow clarity to become possible.

Work with Lapis Lazuli to become aware of your shadow projections:

  • When someone you trust tells you that you are not witnessing yourself accurately.
  • If you find yourself reacting to negative possibilities without attempting to clarify the actuality of the situation.
  • If you feel like your emotional response is way bigger than you would have expected in the situation.

Being able to examine the narratives that define your reality and choosing more empowering stories are both easier when working with Lapis Lazuli. Work with this stone to clarify your vision and empower your ability to direct your emotional energy towards your goals.

Work with Lapis Lazuli to improve your objectivity and willingness to entertain multiple perspectives:

  • In order to improve your relationships.
  • If you work in a helping profession like counseling, medicine, or law enforcement.
  • When negotiating anything with another human being.

Physical Healing

Lapis Lazuli is less indicated for physical healing than many other stones. The most practical and concrete use for this metaphysical powerhouse is assistance in accepting personal responsibility for the narratives that dictate your life.

Magical Uses

Lapis Lazuli really shines in the category of magical uses. This is a great stone for anyone seeking to develop their intuition, psychic abilities, or precognition. Meditation with Lapis Lazuli can clarify visions or provide a greater understanding of synchronicity.

Work with Lapis Lazuli to unlock and enhance latent psychic talents:

  • To improve your ability to recognize and interpret the synchronicities of your life.
  • If you experience precognition and want to develop this ability further.
  • To explore any extrasensory perception or powers to which you feel drawn.

Past life regressions and interdimensional travel are both easier to navigate and more likely to be successful when working with Lapis Lazuli. Meditate with your stone to charge your connection with it, and then simply maintain its presence in your auric field during use for these purposes.

Work with Lapis Lazuli to enhance spiritual travel:

  • When you want to learn to astral project.
  • If you want more control over your lucid dreams.
  • When preparing for a past life regression session.

Carrying Lapis Lazuli can make you very sensitive to deceit and lying. Strong gut reactions that alert you to investigate further can occur when carrying this mineral. Honor your ally and ask some extra questions when that occurs. It is likely that you will find that something is not as it appears.

Work with Lapis Lazuli to detect deceit and illusion:

  • If you suspect that you’re not getting all of the information in a situation and you need to make a decision about it.
  • If you think someone is lying to you.
  • When you’re not sure if you are seeing a situation clearly.

Lapis is a powerful wind element stone. Working with it can help you to access wind energy and harness it to your purpose. Wind energy works with your mental processes and abilities. It is also indicated for energetic release and clearing.

Work with Lapis Lazuli to use wind energy:

  • If you need change in your life.
  • When you need to release stagnant or negative energy and purify yourself or your space.
  • To develop a partnership with wind energy.

3D Considerations

Lapis is a metamorphic rock. It’s actually not a single mineral but a combination of multiple minerals. Lapis Lazuli is made of lazurite, pyrite, and calcite. Sodalite, mica, dolomite, diopside, and a variety of other minerals may also be present. Each mineral has its own hardness within a single specimen of Lapis Lazuli.

In Afghanistan, there is evidence of mining for Lapis that dates back 7000 years. Ancient people used Lapis as beads, jewelry, pigmentation, and as eyeshadow. It has been found in pharaoh’s tombs and as ornamentation in other ancient structures built for the powerful and wealthy.
