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 firstname.lastname@example.org
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.
