I ran out of inspiration for writing for the day, so since my latest obsession is the Lapis Lazuli jewelry that I made and will wear on Monday, here’s something about Lapis Lazuli.
It is a semiprecious stone used for thousands of years for jewelry, ornamental objects, and pigments. It is valued for its intense blue color and the gold flecks of pyrite often visible in the stone. In addition to its aesthetic appeal, it is said that it has various physical, emotional, and spiritual benefits when worn as a piece of jewelry or kept close to the body.
One of the most commonly cited benefits of Lapis Lazuli is its ability to enhance communication and self-expression. Probably one of the reasons I like it so much other that it is blue, and I love the color blue. This stone stimulates the throat chakra, which governs communication and encourages honesty and clarity in speech and thought. Therefore, wearing Lapis Lazuli gives one the confidence to speak their truth and express their thoughts and feelings more effectively.
It is believed that it has a calming and soothing effect on the mind and body. It is said to help reduce anxiety and stress and to promote peace, tranquility, and inner harmony. Some people wear Lapis Lazuli jewelry or keep a piece of the stone in their pocket or near their bed to help them sleep better and to have more peaceful dreams.
In addition to its emotional benefits, Lapis Lazuli has physical benefits. It is believed to have anti-inflammatory properties and to help with conditions such as headaches, migraines, and other types of pain. Some people also wear Lapis Lazuli to boost their immune system and to protect against infections and illnesses.
Finally, Lapis Lazuli is said to have spiritual benefits. If you believe in this, it should help connect with the spiritual realm and to enhance spiritual awareness and intuition. Therefore, wearing Lapis Lazuli will promote spiritual growth, foster a deeper connection to the divine, and help one tap into their inner wisdom and knowing.
Honestly, I wear lapis lazuli because I like the look of the stone, with its deep blues and golden flakes. And I love blue.
