lapis lazuli is a crystal of truth in all aspects. it reveals inner truth, and promotes self-awareness and the acceptance of that knowledge. it provides for the relief of things that may have been suppressed and allows for them to surface, helping to diminish dis-ease or repressed anger, and allows for self-expression without holding back or compromising.
lapis encourages dignity in friendship and social ability. it encourages the qualities of honesty, compassion and uprightness when dealing with others. it provides an awareness of one's motivations and beliefs, and gives a clearer perspective of one's whole life. it reveals not only one's limitations, but the opportunities for growth and to utilize one's gifts and abilities.
