Finding My Voice With Lapis Lazuli
by Amy Shay
I wanted talk about my experience with Lapis Lazuli. It is a personally powerful one that has changed the course of my life to what it is today and where I am headed.
I speak of it with gratitude for Gods creation and it’s wisdom. I went to an intuitive that told me to wear Lapis Lazuli.
Without knowing anything about me, she said you have a problem in the endocrine system. The thyroid, the 5th chakra. This particular stone would be very helpful.
It needn’t be expensive, but you can wear it right at the neck and it will help. But, you still have to take your medication and see the endocrinologist! Umm, ok, I thought. That’s interesting. I guess I need to find me some of this Lapis Lazuli stuff.
This started my path and opened the doors to an entire world of wonder in the realm of crystals and minerals. Now, I had never heard of this stone or could I pick it out of a line up, but I’m sure I would love it is blue as I am a Pisces and if it will help with my problem, I will try anything. This thing is, I have Graves disease. It is a thyroid disease, I can’t regulate the thyroid hormone, my eyes bulge, due to swelling, my body is exhausted, my heart pounds and has dangerous palpitations, my hair falls out, I loose weight, then gain weight.
Everything is out balance in every way. Physically mentally and spiritually. I have been fighting this for 3 years and I have tried everything to get it under control. Medication, a holistic approach, diet, exercises. Nothing seemed to help. It has overshadowed my entire life with its presence.
My sweet twin sister, Erin was on the job. She makes beautiful jewelry. So, she made me a couple of necklaces and some bracelets for me to wear. Which I do wear religiously. I also got a beautiful triangle piece of Lapis Lazuli.
When the piece first came the energy was really confused and chaotic. I was not even aware of the power of this stone. But, I knew I couldn't have it in the same room that night so I put it out of the room and did some research. This is when I came upon healing-crystals-for-you.com and the wealth of knowledge Liz lovingly and selflessly devotes her time and energy to for all of us to reference.
It happened to be a full moon the next night, so I put her out side and the next day I sang to her too. This important for me because I sing, but do not sing in front of people often. I have read on Liz’s site that you can cleanse with vibrations. I started my meditation this day too. It was slow at first, focused on the 5th chakra and the 6th the 3rd eye. I felt the immense power of this stone! It was amazing almost like a repelling of 2 opposing magnets from my forehead to the stone.
This is when my guides came in to talk to me! Wait. WHAT? Is this for real? This can’t be for real? This must be my imagination. My whole body relaxed completely. I tried not to interfere and just listen. Immediately a sense of love, wisdom, safety and wholeness of indescribable depth surrounded me. I didn’t “see” them but I could sense them. It was a group of them. I don’t know how many but I started asking questions like a little kid. I was very excited.
I immediately asked about the Graves disease. They said “we have already worked on this and it is healed, It is done.” Wait, that’s it? I said. It’s over? “There is other work to be done” “Much work is to be done”. “Oh, like what”? I said? Well apparently they did not feel I needed to know at this particular moment. Darn, ok Amy, don’t push it. I felt very obliged and humbled just to get the information that was offered. I got a sense love pouring into the heart chakra and then they were gone. And then the tears. Tears of pure joy! Was that it was it finally over? The sleepless heart pounding nights? And racing thoughts?
I still well up thinking about it, because it has been some months. I will tell you, my blood work is completely normal now. My life is regaining balance. My brain is working in the way is supposed to. Not the fog I was in for so many years. My joints are not swollen and in pain and I’m finally free from the prison I was in for so many years. I’m so very happy that my life is finally on the path it is meant to be on.
We all have our struggles be it health physical or spiritual. Mine was with my voice and communication. I am learning to speak up. Not to let people talk over me and I am learning that I have a voice too. In my job, in my relationships and as a creation of God. My voice is my gift and it is my greatest gift. I shoved it down for too long and it caused dis-ease.
Every disharmony will manifest itself, and we have to take a serious look at ourselves and learn from it. In my case to take a time to heal myself and really love myself enough to look at what caused this. Then remedy the reasons why my voice is/was not being used the way God and I intended for it’s creation. We didn’t make this voice to sit on the shelf. We made it to be heard. So, I best use it!
Now, I am speaking up more, I am much more creative. I am a graphic artist by trade but have been in a bit of a rut for a few years. I am a good singer, but have always been terrified of singing in front of people and it is my strongest gift. So, slowly I am looking into how I can express that part of myself. I don’t know how yet but, maybe teaching, maybe just karaoke, but somehow working with that aspect of my soul.
The Lapis Lazuli helped me to focus that love and direct to the most important aspect. I thank the Creator for this beautiful vibration in healing for me when I need it. I thank Liz for this site, her knowledge, and I thank you for reading my story.
