Lapis Lazuli Gemstone: Properties Benefits And How to Wear

Jupiter is the Guru or teacher and is spiritually and astrologically very strong.

Wearing Lapis Lazuli with Rudraksha
Neeta Singhal’s Rudraksha Ratna Science Therapy® (RRST®) applies the use of both Lapis Lazuli gems and Rudraksha beads to balance your chakras. In RRST only natural and non-treated gemstones are used. The Rudraksha Ratna Science Therapy® works on chakras and heals you from within, bearing no side effects. In RRST a gemstone is set as a ring or pendent, the bhasm made of the planetary herb is kept inside one tube and a metal that improves the planetary effects is kept in the other tube. In case of Lapis Lazuli, Asthwat Bhasm and gold are used to attract the cosmic power of Jupiter. The gemstone is then energized with its precise seed mantra on a specific day to empower it to eliminate all the malefic effects of the planet and reinforce its beneficial effects. Thus the gemstone becomes a powerful talisman suitable to be worn by any person irrespective of his birth chart.
Situated at the throat region above collarbone, Vishuddha chakra (Throat Chakra) is connected with both hearing and listening, serving as the cleansing point of the body. In the ancient Chakra science, it is the Chakra that is the seat of wisdom, willpower, and ability to make the right choice. If a person expresses his desire and vision clearly or vividly, his Vishuddha Chakra is optimally balanced and active. A person with a balanced Vishuddha Chakra exhibits resonance, clarity of thoughts and excellent decision making. An imbalance in this Chakra invites thyroid disorders, backache and immunity illnesses.
How to care for your Lapis Lazuli Gemstones
1. Your gemstone might routinely carry negative energies, and the stone or ring can be detoxified by dipping it in water overnight and placing in a bowl full of quartz crystals for another night.
2. The gemstone can be washed in a thin stream of running water, after which it can be wiped lightly with a soft cloth. It could be polished every once in a while.

Recommending a Gemstone based on RRST
During consultation, the blocked chakras that are causing the mental, emotional and physical issues are identified and limiting beliefs are addressed. Chakras become imbalanced when your thoughts and attitudes tend towards fears and negativity when one is facing challenging situations in life. Blocked Chakras manifest emotional disorders and physical ailments. It is only after blocked Chakras are balanced and activated that you can transform your life of suffering, obstacles, and confusions into love, success, and happiness. As per the chakra status and concerns of the client, a suitable combination of Gemstone and Rudraksha bead is recommended. As per the cosmic colour they emit, the gemstones work on specific chakras. So Lapis Lazuli works on Vishudha Chakra and the RRST Consultant identifies the correct finger position for drawing maximum energy from the stone. Rudraksha and Gems are powerful agents of energy and work on releasing the negative energy stored in the form of stress in the blocked chakras, thereby activating them and tuning them to their natural state.
When or Which Day To Wear Lapis Lazuli Gemstone:
It can be worn on Thursday in the morning after bath. If need be, one may additionally chant the seed mantra “HAM” 108 times before wearing.
