These are some of the most beautiful polished Lapis Lazuli I have ever seen. These pieces are heavily covered in golden specks, lines and swirls. Perfect for jewelry making, Crystal grids and medicine bags. This is the highest grade Lapis Lazuli I have sourced in years, so enjoy them while they last!
Lapis Lazuli is an ancient gem that has a quite an amazing history. It has been a highly revered and sought after gemstone among numerous cultures for thousands of years. The Egyptians, the Greeks, the Afghans, The Turkana, Dinka and Samburu tribes in Africa and many American Indian tribes such as the Aztec and Zuni all favored Lapis Lazuli. And just like the majority of most cultures, it was used as a symbol of status and high ranking because only the rich could afford it. It was and still is a medium for Sacred Adornments that are said to have metaphysical and magickal powers, so it's no surprise that it's also a favored gemstone for Royalty, Obeah Doctors, Shamans, Medicine Men, Wise Women and other practitioners of healing. The energy of these celestial blue crystals intensify the growth of psychic abilities, intuition, channeling and help you to contact your Spirit Guides and Guardian Angels. Lapis Lazuli also helps balance male and female energies, and and stimulates the Kundalini. One piece of information that I find fascinating is that part of the book of, "The Book of the Dead" was written on a slab of Lapis Lazuli. HOW COOL IS THAT??!! It has been called a Truth Crystal because it also ensures that the words you speak are in alignment with your personal truth.
Lapis Lazuli stones are highly valued for their beauty, but their alchemical value is also very important. Most of us understand the idea and value of truth, but many are unsure of enlightenment. If you seek enlightenment like I do, Lapis Lazuli is a perfect crystal for you. Lapis Lazuli also assists automatic writing. Automatic writing or psychography is a psychic ability allowing a person to produce written words without consciously writing. The words arise from a subconscious, spiritual or supernatural source. I was born with this ability but didn't know of it's significance until I was 13. I'm sure many of you have this ability too and perhaps are not aware of it yet. I would suggest doing a meditation focused on clearing your mind and being open to receive messages from the Beyond. I ALWAYS make it CLEAR that only positive spirits are welcome to communicate. And even though I shield my home on a regular basis, whenever I do any such work, I always always always speak OUT LOUD that all negative spirits, entities and anomalies are NOT welcome. Of course this part is up to you, but I strongly suggest it. Automatic Writing and prayer is how I stay in close contact with my Mammie. Sometimes months will pass and I won't even think of it, then all of the sudden I will smell her perfume and her breath, and that's when I grab a pen and paper. I think it's a BEAUTIFUL way to stay in touch with loved ones who have passed, and to help others who are grieving the loss of their beloveds. Shattuckite is another Crystal that assists with Automatic Writing along with other psychic abilities. Black Tourmaline is great Stone for every Medium to have on hand because it helps keep you grounded which is very, very important.
You will find some of my homemade "Velvet Lotus Sacred Smudge" incense cones in your package. They are made with all natural organic white sage, pinon wood essential oil and benzoin gum. They have been charged under the Full Flower Moon in a Sacred Crystal Grid and infused with blessings. If you would like to Smudge your items, simply light the tip of the cone, wait until it turns red then blow it out. Place it on a fireproof plate and direct the smoke so it gently encircles the items you wish to have Smudged. Feel free to use your own intentions and blessings and make sure the cone is completely extinguished before leaving the room. From my heart to yours.
This listing is for one (1) polished piece of Lapis Lazuli that is approximately 1" long. Everything from my shop has been charged under the full moon and smudged with white sage on my personal altar. I have developed a process in cleansing crystals so you can be confident that it will be delivered to you with the purest of energy and ready for your own personal programming and adorning. I anoint each stone with a sacred oil blend before packing so there may be a trace amount still on your crystal when you receive it. It won't harm the crystal and can be easily removed with a soft cloth if you choose. Some crystals fade in the sun so be careful and make sure yours does not. Please contact me on overseas shipping. Love and Light! xo Seja
