Lapis Lazuli enhances the interconnectedness of the higher bodies with the physical body, resulting in a heightened willingness to communicate freely with the outer world.

The primary effect of Lapis is upon the throat; as such, Lapis affects the speech centre and the ability to communicate freely and stay in touch with one’s surroundings.

Lapis stimulates the thyroid and harmonizes its functions. The secondary effect of Lapis is upon the kidneys, helping with elimination of toxins and reducing high blood pressure.

Lapis Lazuli has a profound effect on female hormonal balance. It usually increases the menstrual cycle by two days, and for those that are menopausal, a sequence of changes is induced that may result in the return of a regular menstrual cycle.

Lapis has proven itself as a tool for weight loss, particularly reducing the fat levels in one’s tissue.

“Lapis lazuli bestows wisdom and honesty and reveals our inner truth.” writes Michael Gienger; “it makes us enjoy contact with others and helps us convey feelings and emotions, quite vehemently, if necessary. (…) Lapis lazuli heals problems affecting the neck, larynx and vocal chords, particularly if they originate in reserve or repressed anger.” (Gienger, Michael: Crystal Power, Crystal Healing, London 2002, Cassell & Co., p. 310)

Michel Dogna and Marie-Joelle Kraffe suggest that Lapis regenerates the thyroid gland, activates the combustion of fats and ‘magnetizes’ the voice. It is indicated in sinusitis. (Dogna, Michel and Kraffe, Marie-Joelle: Elixirs mineraux et Huiles dynamisees, Paris 1988, Guy Tredaniel, p.189)

In Vedic Astrology and Ayurveda, Lapis Lazuli is said to be “useful in the treatment of asthma, prameha (obstinate urinary disorders including diabetes), tuberculosis and serious types of vomiting as well as hiccups.” (Dash, Vaidya Bhagwan: Alchemy and Metallic Medicines in Ayurveda, New Delhi 1986, Concept Publishing, p.152)
