Stone of Protection

Transform with Lapis

As we enter the Age of Aquarius, many people are experiencing major changes on all levels—emotionally, mentally and spiritually. You may feel anxious, have trouble sleeping or experience fear about making any number of changes. Gemstones are a potent ally for spiritual growth—and lapis lazuli is a dynamic stone for transformation and healing, so it’s a perfect stone for this changing age.

Yogi Bhajan taught that lapis is one of four semi-precious stones that would give its life to heal any aspect of your being. To ensure optimum energetic healing, use authentic gemstones. Ask if they’ve been heated, dyed or are synthetic. If you're sensitive to different energies, hold it in your hand to sense its vibration; real gemstones always give off energy.

Use a lapis mala (prayer beads) or wear a lapis bracelet to attune yourself to the new energies of the Aquarian Age. When meditating with your mala, use your pointer (Jupiter) finger for wisdom, chanting Wahe Guru on each bead to empower the manifestation of your prayers. Lapis is the best stone to pray with because it is so projective and opens your third eye.

Lapis helps release tension and anxiety. When you are facing uncertainty, wear lapis for guidance and mental clarity. This beautiful gemstone can also assist you in overcoming depression and enhances serenity and self-acceptance.

Angelically-protected lapis is associated with Archangel Michael (the warrior), so this is also a stone for divine protection, giving you courage and helping you release fear, so you can open to your life’s purpose and increase your vitality. Transform yourself with lapis!
