Deep blue in colour, Lapis lazuli is actually a combination of azurite, calcite and pyrite. It is prized as a stone that activates the throat and brow chakras.
Lapis lazuli offers mental reasoning and objectivity assisting the clearing of
emotional baggage. It also can be used as a focusing tool for meditation and dream analysis.
Lapis is one of the oldest spiritual stones known to man, used by healers, priests and royalty, for power, wisdom and to stimulate psychic abilities and inner vision. It represents universal truth.
Lapis quickly releases stress, allowing for peace and serenity. Placed
over the third eye, Lapis expands awareness and conscious attunement to the intuitive self, stimulating enlightenment and enhancing dream work. It permits spiritual journeying, and tapping into personal and spiritual power. Lapis provides a connection with dream forces that are working to both guide and counsel during altered states. [Melody, 370]
As a protection stone, Lapis Lazuli recognizes psychic attack and blocks it, returning the energy back to its source.
Lapis Lazuli is a visionary stone, bringing information to the mind in images rather than words. It can be a catalyst for higher awareness, and often aids those with past-life connections to ancient civilizations - Atlantis, Egypt, Peru, Sumeria and India, among others. Meditating with this stone can assist in recovering memories of those past lives, help regain lost knowledge from those civilizations, and inspire evolution in the current incarnation.
