It is the end of the month and we are about to release next month's Intentional Scrapbooking KitTM which I know will be a hit! I am not going to reveal the master mind set just yet....be sure to check back saturday! I am sure that we can all use the mental boost that this month's project has an ample supply of!
I almost forgot to post the inspirational and informational article on the crystal that is featured in October's Intentional Scrapbooking KitTM, "Creative Vision". Lapis Lazuli is a very powerful stone! I have been actively working with it all month and it has kept me busy. It has revealed insight as to former ways of thinking that need to be released and how to refocus the nature of my thoughts. I would love to hear any stories on how lapis activated and enhanced your creative vision. Please send all stories to me at email@example.com
A stone so ancient, it is said to have existed before time itself, lapis lazuli is a powerful stone for awakening awareness within the self. Abundantly found throughout the ruins of many ancient civilizations, it was highly prized by the Egyptians and Mesopotamians. Used as a tool for raising consciousness, lapis was highly revered for its ability to bring wisdom, truth and light to the user.
The oldest known source that produces this semi-precious material are the mines of Badakshan province in Afghanistan. Relics and talismans found among ancient civilizations are traced back to this known source for the past 6,500 years. Although it can be found in other locations across the world, these mines produce the highest quality specimens.
Lapis lazuli is comprised of a deep cobalt blue with scattered flecks of highly reflective golden pyrite. Its intense color is such a contrast to the dry and arid land of the desert in which it is mined that one can understand its prized popularity since the dawn of time. A known spiritual tool, lapis had many other purposes. Due to its saturated color it was frequently pulverized into powders to be used as paint, dyes, healing poultices, and eye shadow, as worn by the infamous Cleopatra.
Lapis Lazuli is one of two crystals in the mineral kingdom that is known to penetrate and surface rather than heal. It is most effective when placed on the middle of the forehead just between the eyebrows. This location is frequently referred to as the third eye. When placed here, it will assist the user in penetrating limited beliefs and illusions of the self that block access to the wisdom of the subconscious. Lapis quickly draws a person into the depths of the infinite intelligence of the inner mind.
It is here in the subconscious realm that the energetic vibration of lapis will align one with the power of creative source. This alignment ignites awareness and self empowerment. In return, this awakening serves to stimulate insight that surfaces in the form of ideas, inspiration and intuitive hunches.
Working together, lapis lazuli and one’s own creative vision inspire the user to powerfully and forcefully focus on desired visions with precise clarity. As dreams grow and expand in the eye of the beholder, insight is revealed as to the necessary steps that need to be performed in order to fulfill a desired goal.
Lapis not only aids in surfacing clear insight, it shows a person certain actions that one may need to take in order to ascend to higher levels of BEING. This means that it will reveal any information about what is blocking, preventing or standing in the way of achieving a desired goal. Lapis brings to light any and all thought patterns and emotional wounds that need to be released and healed. In other words, when someone is finished working with lapis, they will have a clear understanding as to what they really need to accomplish in order to turn their dreams into a reality.
Allow the deep blue ray of lapis to carry you to the depths of your subconscious mind where you can access the brightly shining truth and wisdom of your BEING. Lapis is a vehicle through which we can truly experience the light of the higher celestial realms and implement the wisdom received by grounding it into physical action.

I am so thankful that I have discovered scrapbooking as an outlet to express my creative nature. Scrapbooking allows me to capture the intangible nature of thought and shape it into concrete form. As I scrapbook all my intentions, I find that I ascend to higher levels of BEING with an accelerated speed. Every morning I look forward to all that I can begin to create. I feel so creative and full of potential that I know from the depths of my soul that I can inspire the world!
Not only do I give color and shape to my thoughts through scrapbooking, I connect with the intelligence of nature through activating crystal energy. I am living the life I am meant to live.

By summoning creative vision, we can create the life we desire. So, what is creative vision and how do we harness it? Creative vision is information released from the wise and all-knowing source of the subconscious mind meant to inspire us to perform certain acts that are necessary to transform desired goals into realized physical experiences. When we harness our creative vision, we access clear insight from the deepest resource of our subconscious. In the depth of our deep inner mind, our creative vision awaits. To awaken and call forth this creative intelligence is to summon it using our powerful intent.
Intent is powerful. When we call forth creative vision with our intent, we are focused, determined, clear and purposeful. Our intent alone will surface the wisdom of creative vision. The question is how can one recognize it when it surfaces? The valuable insight is communicated to us through the imagination. It is through this vehicle that we successfully communicate to our subconscious and it communicates to us. Once we clearly understand this communication channel between our imagination and our subconscious mind, we can effectively, successfully, and deliberately use it to transform our dreams and goals into reality.
All we need to do is 1) Clearly state a desired intention, 2) arouse supportive emotions and, 3) deliberately focus our thought on the fulfilled outcome that we truly want to experience. These are the most powerful tools that we naturally possess. When we spend a prolonged amount of time each day holding a desired vision, we stimulate, deeply imprint, and give direction to the subconscious mind. In this way, we allow the subconscious mind to receive clear direction for what we truly desire.
In return, the subconscious mind, which knows everything needed to bring about a state of wholeness and well-being, immediately begins to attract all events and situations meant to fulfill the direction we’ve given to it. It literally guides you to be in the right place at the right time to receive all the necessary experiences that will transform your dreams into concrete physical realities.
New ideas and inspired hunches surfacing through your imagination are creative vision! If a new idea surfaces while you’re imagining a desired goal, pay attention! This valuable insight has been deliberately called forth from the depths of your all-knowing deep inner mind!
To recognize creative vision as it surfaces is to practice conscious awareness of every thought in each moment. Notice each thought as it occurs. Practicing this discipline will ensure that you will be able to identify new ideas and hits of inspiration as they arrive from the profound deep inner mind. It is through the creative vision that surfaces from your deep inner mind that all new ideas and inspiration are handed over to man.
Some of our imaginative abilities have become weak due to lack of use. The good news is that this powerful ability can be brought back to life through stimulation and exercise. Deliberate focused thought on images and sensations of a desired experience will serve to nurture your imagination. As you bring your imagination back to life, this fertile platform will help you grow and expand all your dreams.
As we strive to align with our highest potential, we can summon the master mindset of creative vision. Deliberate stating of this intent will allow creative wisdom to surface and expand our visions with a precise clarity. New ideas and inspiration will be released from the wise depths of the subconscious mind. Recognize the insight as it arises and take positive action on it. Small steps of inspired action are the necessary fuel to transform any desired dream into a reality.
