Spiritual Meaning of Lapis Lazuli Crystal
When you are drawn to Lapis Lazuli crystal, it symbolizes that you are an old soul. An old soul is someone who has incarnated, or lived, many lifetimes. You may even have vague memories, of lives led in Atlantis, ancient Rome, Greece or Egypt.
Lapis Lazuli was the favored stone of ancient Egypt. This prized stone may feel like ‘home’ to you because you once roamed the temples and streets of Thebes and Alexandria. If you hold this crystal in your hand, and close your eyes, don’t be surprised if you feel overwhelmed by tears as you are energetically reconnected with the residual memory of your ancient home.
This blue crystal tends to draw your attention, when you are ready to take your spiritual journeying to a higher level, and develop your God-given talents.
✔️The word Lapis Lazuli is sometimes shorted to just Lapis.
✔️The name Lapis Lazuli comes from the Persian word for blue, lazuward.
What Are the Properties of Lapis Lazuli?
Lapis Lazuli is a rock, which has been mined and used to create ornaments and jewelery for thousands of years. Egyptologists have discovered beads, scarabs and inlaid jewelry made with Lapis Lazuli, in tombs dating back 5,000 years. Even today, this stone remains popular among jewelers who use it in earrings, necklaces and bracelets.
Lapis Lazuli has an intensely royal blue color. It often has golden flecks of pyrite and white specks of calcite. It can also be crushed to create the pigment of ultramarine, a color which became hugely popular with Renaissance artists in the 15th century.
Lapis Lazuli is primarily mined in Myanmar, Afghanistan and Argentina, as well as the USA and India.
How To Clean Lapis Lazuli Stones
Lapis lazuli is more porous and softer than other stones, and thus needs a little extra care when you clean it. Avoid using chemicals or harsh cleaners because you may damage the healing properties of the stone.
To care for your crystal, wash your stone or jewelry in warm water. Rinse thoroughly and pat dry with a soft cloth.
3 Keys Benefits of Lapis Lazuli Crystal
What is Lapis Lazuli good for? What powers does it have?
This stone has a very high vibration and can aid:
1. Spiritual Awakening
The process of spiritual awakening can be intense on the body because your aura energy field is fluctuating, expanding and contracting, which can feel like a bad hormone rush.
When you wear Lapis Lazuli close to your skin as jewelry, it helps your body adjust to the changes associated with a spiritual awakening. It soothes edgy nerves and calms a racing mind.
Lapsi Lazuli stimulates deep inner-knowledge and remembering, and multidimensional cellular healing.
2. Spiritual Attainment
Wear this stone when you are actively working on advancing your spiritual gifts, particularly anything to do with dreamwork, astral traveling, shamanism or metaphysical abilities such as telepathy (psychic), mediumship and trance. You should regularly touch your third eye chakra with your bracelet.
This stone will not prove much use to healers and therapists, who require the more gentle energy of the amethyst, the Master Healer. However, if you are a healer who wishes to expand your awareness into the metaphysical, then this is the perfect stone to aid your personal journey.
Lapis Lazuli was known in ancient Egypt as the royal stone and was said to contain the soul of Gods. The Gods work powerfully through this stone to help empower magicians, spell casters, psychics and mediums.
It also protects those working with magic/magick against psychic attack.
3. Find Your Voice
As this is stone activates the throat chakra, it helps you to ‘find your voice’. This aids you to express your opinions, and to speak up in front of others, both in your private and working life. I call it the ‘speakers stone’, for this reason. Note, Lapis Lazuli helps you with the spoken word and not the written word, this stone is of no particular benefit to writers.
To avail of this crystal’s energy, press the stone to your throat lightly for a few seconds before you have an important conversation with someone, or attend a meeting. If your Lapis Lazuli is set in a bracelet, touch your throat with your bracelet before speaking.This will activate and clear your throat chakra.
Where Should I Put This Blue Stone?
If you want to use Lapis Luzuli to aid your spiritual awakening or develop a metaphysical gift, then you should wear it as a bracelet or necklace everyday. The main thing, is that the stone touches your skin.
If you would like to use the stone to heal one of the conditions below, then also wear it close to the skin, ideally as a bracelet. Crystal healing is gentle, and it can take a few weeks for symptoms to obviously improve, but you should notice some sign of improvement within a week. Once you are well again, stop wearing the bracelet.
What are the Healing Benefits of Lapis Lazuli?
This crystal heals:
- Hormone fluctuations
- Any condition of the throat
If you enjoy meditation, try this crystal healing:
Lie down and place a Lapis Lazuli on your Throat chakra.
Listen to some relaxing music for a few minutes and allow the crystal to deliver some powerful cleansing.
