Monthly Symbol, August 2015: Lapis Lazuli

 

Excerpt from peacefulmind.com (read more):

“Lapis Lazuli is the stone of ancient knowledge and wisdom. Lapis resonates on a very high, harmonious level as it brings peace and deeper understanding when looking inward. It therefore, encourages inner self-knowledge, encourages self-awareness and will show you inner truth, when you really choose to look. A wonderful stone to work with for self-acceptance. It’s deep blue color is like looking deep into an ocean of possibilities providing qualities of honesty, compassion and morality to the personality seeking balance.

Lapis encourages creativity. It opens one up to self-expression, stimulating objectivity, clarity and self-realization. When used at the Throat Chakra, Lapis will help you in speaking the truth and therefore, inspires confidence. By speaking your feelings and emotions, it often allows for greater self-expression and revelation, especially when it does no harm. It helps balance the function of the thyroid gland while strengthening the neck and vocal cords.

Lapis promotes clear understanding through the power of intuition. When applied to the Third Eye Chakra, this stone helps to open up the ability for psychic attunement. Lapis makes this center more aware or responsive to our own insightful nature.”

 

Ode to August

 

Oh, beloved August,
the harvest of the year and
All the harvests of the past
are celebrating in me,

Oh, mysterious August,
after a summer of light
all the stars being back
at the night sky
are twinkling in me,

Oh, sensuous August,
all the gentle winds of
the end summer
are dancing in me,

Oh, magical August
I embrace thee
and Sirius, which
knows I remember.

“The cornucopia, a curved horn with fruits and flowers spilling from its open mouth, is a common symbol of abundance and the earth’s bounty. The symbol’s origin lies in Greek mythology. Legend says that Zeus, the king of the gods, was raised by a foster mother named Amalthaea, who was either a goat or a goddess who tended a goat. Either way, she fed the infant god goat’s milk. One day one of the goat’s horns broke off. Amalthaea filled the horn with fruits and flowers and gave it to Zeus, who graciously placed it in the sky, where it became a constellation.”

From Fruit in Mythology at Myths Encyclopedia

Affirmation:  I am one with the unlimited abundance of the Universe.
