Lapis is a prominent third eye chakra stone that will develop your intuition as well as amplifying and expanding psychic visions and clairvoyant abilities. Used at the third eye...it may initiate psychic powers... as it will activate the pineal gland and open your connections to spirit.
By opening the third eye it will bring through enhanced visionary abilities and allow you to unlock your imagination. Like most blue stones... Lapis will stimulate and activate the throat chakra.
It has a strong and unique energy that may challenge many people... and this makes Lapis an amazingly powerful stone for spiritual growth and spiritual health.
As it is a highly spiritual stone.... it will work through the fifth chakra to aid your creative and psychic communication abilities... in alignment with Divine Will.
It is powerful to create depth and clarity in your thinking and in your communications. It may be called a truth crystal... as it also ensures that the words you speak are in alignment with your personal truth.
If you keep it within the area of the throat chakra or third eye chakra... it will accentuate the energy in this area ... for the highest use of its vibration. The vibration of Lapis earrings work well... as worn at the ears... they are located close to the third eye as well as within the throat chakra.
Lovely Lapis Lazuli jewelry is easy to buy. Lapis pendants worn near the throat are very effective to stimulate psychic abilities. Using Lapis Lazuli stones in a psychic meditation is very powerful and is very helpful to aid you to learn to be psychic.

Most times when our life feels like a prison, it is we who have built the bars. Hanging onto resentments, past hurts and failures, letting irrational fear rule us or staying in an abusive relationship... These are just some of the things that can imprison us. But the cells that hold us captive are merely shadows and we are, in fact, able to walk right through the walls and free ourselves.

IV. THE PRINCIPLE OF POLARITY.
"Everything is Dual; everything has poles; everything has its pair of opposites; like and unlike are the same; opposites are identical in nature, but different in degree; extremes meet; all truths are but half-truths; all paradoxes may be reconciled." — The Kybalion.
This Principle embodies the truth that "everything is dual"; "everything has two poles"; "everything has its pair of opposites," all of which were old Hermetic axioms. It explains the old paradoxes, that have perplexed so many, which have been stated as follows: "Thesis and anti-thesis are identical in nature, but different in degree"; "opposites are the same, differing only in degree"; "the pairs of opposites may be reconciled"; "extremes meet"; "everything is and isn't, at the same time"; "all truths are but half-truths"; "every truth is half-false"; "there are two sides to everything," etc., etc., etc. It explains that in everything there are two poles, or opposite aspects, and that "opposites" are really only the two extremes of the same thing, with many varying degrees between them. To illustrate: Heat and Cold, although "opposites," are really the same thing, the differences consisting merely of degrees of the same thing. Look at your thermometer and see if you can discover where "heat" terminates and "cold" begins! There is no such thing as "absolute heat" or "absolute cold" — the two terms "heat" and "cold" simply indicate varying degrees of the same thing, and that "same thing" which manifests as "heat" and "cold" is merely a form, variety, and rate of Vibration. So "heat" and "cold" are simply the "two poles" of that which we call "Heat" — and the phenomena attendant thereupon are manifestations of the Principle of Polarity. The same Principle manifests in the case of "Light and Darkness," which are the same thing, the difference consisting of varying degrees between the two poles of the phenomena. Where does "darkness" leave off, and "light" begin? What is the difference between "Large and Small"? Between "Hard and Soft"? Between "Black and White"? Between "Sharp and Dull"? Between "Noise and Quiet"? Between "High and Low"? Between "Positive and Negative"? The Principle of Polarity explains these paradoxes, and no other Principle can supersede it. The same Principle operates on the Mental Plane. Let us take a radical and extreme example — that of "Love and Hate," two mental states apparently totally different. And yet there are degrees of hate and degrees of Love, and a middle point in which we use the terms "Like or Dislike," which shade into each other so gradually that sometimes we are at a loss to know whether we "like" or "dislike" or "neither." And all are simply degrees of the same thing, as you will see if you will but think a moment. And, more than this (and considered of more importance by the Hermetists), it is possible to change the vibrations of hate to the vibrations of Love, in one's own mind, and in the minds of others. Many of you, who read these lines, have had personal experiences of the involuntary rapid transition from Love to Hate, and the reverse, in your own ease and that of others. And you will therefore realize the possibility of this being accomplished by the use of the Will, by means of the Hermetic formulas. "Good and Evil" are but the poles of the same thing, and the Hermetist understands the art of transmuting Evil into Good, by means of an application of the Principle of Polarity. In short, the "Art of Polarization" becomes a phase of "Mental Alchemy" known and practiced by the ancient and modern Hermetic Masters. An understanding of the Principle will enable one to change his own Polarity, as well as that of others, if he will devote the time and study necessary to master the art.
(Hence the pole exercise taught earlier this week... What you do not want and what you want are only degrees apart on the same pole. Harmonize with the end of the pole that you desire, and life will harmonize in kind.)

Rather than right a short essay to explain what Hermeticism is, I have decided to provide a website link below to give one a better overview of the practice and its origins. I would also refer one to the occult classic book, The kybalion written by Three Initiates… Hermeticism is a bit too complex to cover in a short blog, so I do recommend further personal study for those who may be interested in the topic. We will be talking about this subject more in the next day or two however, to explain why the technique given yesterday is such a powerful thing.

Don't concentrate on the things that make you unhappy; visualize, and feel the joy that comes with having what you desire. Close your eyes and imagine that standing before you is a pole; at the bottom of the pole is the thing you do not want, at the top of the pole is your greatest wish. Imagine that there is a lever on the pole that you can move up and down to different degrees of success and attainment. Move the lever to the top of the pole, letting it come to rest on your desire, then harmonize with that deire... experience it, feel it, live in that moment as if it were already yours. After a few moments, open your eyes and go about your day. Do not think about your desire again until you have time to harmonize with the pole in the quiet of your mind. This is a very powerful Hermetic method of manifestation.

For those interested in reading about, and developing your psychic abilities; I present to you "Psychic Development For Beginners," by William Hewitt. This is probably one of the best books I have ever read on the subject and it's teachings are down to earth and realistic. Check it out if you are thinking of delving into this area.

Most of our anxieties in life are not worth worrying over if we really think about them. Consider this; we as human beings often worry about what we don't have instead of what we do have. Maybe we didn't get the job we want, maybe we didn't get the house we want, or the car, or the raise. Maybe we are resentful because we are getting older or injured and can't do the things we used to do. But the fact always remains; we can watch a beautiful sunset, listen to great music, read a book, be with family or friends and have a roof over our heads. When you really think about it, it is a blessing to be alive at all; so don't waste your precious moments relenting over what you don't have or can't do... Be grateful for what you have, because when you really think about it, it is probably a lot.

God has given you innate abilities as a spiritual being. It is neither sinful or evil to cultivate those abilities and use them for the greater good... Those abilities lie within your mind and in your spirit; but it is up to you to go on the journey to find out what your gifts are.

I think today I will take a day off and regroup; maybe even watch a movie or take a nap. The Psychic Course has been completed and the creative juices for the zombie anthology are brewing... I think I will just let them build until next week and then launch a writing attack on this project. I'm looking forward to having this one come out. Maybe some time next week I will share the tentative cover for the project.

What's new on this end of the world? Well, I'm finishing up a Psychic Counseling course this week, and then I will be moving on with the book. I thought perhaps I could do both in a day, but time got too crowded; so I decided to finish the course first. I'm thinking in the future I may start my own psychic reading service... With all the frauds out there, maybe a bit of honesty would be a good thing in the market. So that's it, lots of work on this end... that's why the profound statements have been slim on the blog...lol... But I have been thinking of making the blog a little more down to earth anyway. The metaphysical and profound will of course always be a part of the blog when those thunderous spiritual thoughts hit me; but straining the brian on some days to squeeze one out can be a prelude to a headache. :-) Have a good one folks...

Good Friday; the day in which Christ was nailed to the cross and died for the sins of humanity. Truly for those present on that day, the events were sorrowful and dark... But we must look upon this event with different eyes today, and realize that what ended in a bloody execution, began with new life and new hope three days later. As you go through this Easter weekend, whether you are Christian or not, contemplate your own life. What "Sins," short comings, habits, mindsets or even relationships would you be better off without? What aspects of your old life and nature holds you back from being the person you truly want to be? Take them to the cross, and leave them there... prepare for your own resurrection. To rise in spirit and in consciousness is not always easy, many times it entails a sacrifice of the lower self.

Today is Holy Thursday, and it matters not what your "religion" is; we should all take time to reflect upon the fate that awaited Christ on Good Friday. Metaphysically, Holy Thursday shows us that sometimes it may seem sad or even dark when some aspect of our old life is about die out. We may feel the need to weep or mourn because we feel that some important part of ourselves is being taken away... But after the pain of crucifixion, there will always be a resurrection. We will explore this subject further tomorrow... until then, it is time to reflect on our own lives in the light of Christ's journey to the cross.

This is a very busy week and I will blog when I can. Today is a trip to the dentist, the place we all know and love...NOT! But what can we say that is profound about getting a filling? I guess sometimes there are decaying spots in our lives; and we may have to drill out the old and fill it with the new. I'll try to remember that when I have a mouthful of drill today. :-)

As many already know, I am big fan of horror movies; zombies in particular. Since the first George Romero film, I was hooked. I always wanted to write a zombie apocalypse novel, and had started one several months ago that got shelved. The project was shelved for a couple of reasons, one of which is that it is hard to fill an entire book with zombie ideas that have not been done to death. But then an idea hit me, why not return to my writing roots of short stories and do an anthology of the undead. This way, I could condense the best of my most original ideas into something that is perhaps more fresh and fun in the genre. Thus was born a new project, Equinox Of The Dead... Equinox will be composed of short zombie tales that will take place on either the spring or autumn equinox, hence the title. These stories will be different than other zombie epics because they will focus more on certain individuals and how they deal with or experience the zombie apocalypse. For instance, one of the stories is entitled, Watching The World End: This particular story will focus on a man in a wheel chair who witnesses the zombie apocalypse by what he sees on TV, and what transpires right outside of his window. I think focusing on unique characters and their mindsets during the undead invasion will be both fun and interesting. Equinox should be out by very late summer, early fall.... just in time for Halloween!
