How to Open your Third Eye Chakra with Lapis Lazuli
The Third Eye Chakra is the most mystical of all seven. While the Crown Chakra is all about your spiritual connection, the Third Eye is all about seeing clearly in both worlds of existence. Get a clear perspective of your physical life's meaning as well as that of your spiritual path.
Lapis Lazuli is the firm choice for opening the Third Eye Chakra. It aligns perfectly with the navy blue color of the Third Eye Chakra. It is the stone of "Total Awareness", bringing you a perspective that is omnipotent and multidimensional.
Once you open your Third Eye Chakra, you have unlimited access to your own intuitive abilities, psychic powers, visions of the spirit world, and a deep understanding of the meaning of life.
Isn't it about time you tap into your Third Eye Chakra with the unmatched powers of Lapis Lazuli gemstones?
What is my Third Eye Chakra?
Your Third Eye Chakra is one of the major seven energy points on your body. It is located between your two physical eyes, and slightly above it. It is associated with the color blue: the same rich tone that you find on Lapis Lazuli gems.
The Third Eye Chakra is where you receive ideas and gain the power to implement them into reality. It is also where you can see the bigger picture of your life's meaning. Finally, the Third Eye Chakra allows some people to see beyond the physical reality and gain clairvoyance- the ability to see the spirit world.

What do I see through my Third Eye Chakra?
There are things you may "see" when you open the Third Eye Chakra with Lapis Lazuli. They may come as visions, messages, or revelations. Everyone's experiences are different. Some people have natural abilities and may be born with the Third Eye Chakra open, while others can spend a lifetime working on it. Unless you have the natural gift, the general rule of thumb is that "practice makes perfect".
Here are some things you may experience with an open Third Eye:
- Seeing or feeling your spirit guides, guardian angels, archangels, masters, and deities
- Hearing messages from higher beings
- Tapping deep into your own intuition via your Higher Self
- Accessing the Akashic Records of past, present, future
- Understanding your spiritual purpose
- Making contact with passed loved ones and ancestors
While some people may experience these as actual visions, other people can physically hear messages or have them drift into the mind. Some people see higher beings as colors or forms, while others have more of feelings and sensations, sometimes even physical.
- Gain new, innovative ideas and also see the way to implement them so they become manifestations
- Tap into your intuition to know which choice to make regarding important life decisions
- Understand the meaning of your life and purpose
- Better empathize with others through a greater understanding of the human condition
- Relieve long term emotional despair, fears, anger, anxiety, etc by transcending ego-driven mindset
Although the spiritual and worldly benefits are divided so that we can better grasp the concepts, those with an open Third Eye understand that the two worlds work simultaneously.
How to Open my Third Eye Chakra with Lapis Lazuli
Lapis Lazuli is the gemstone specifically vibrating at the frequency of the Third Eye Chakra. It can be used to enhance your spiritual visions and your worldly insights. There are several rituals that you can begin so that your Third Eye slowly blossoms open like a brilliant blue flower.
Place a Lapis Polished Stone on the Third Eye for Visualization
The most powerful and direct way for you to benefit from the Third Eye Chakra healing energies of Lapis Lazuli is to place flat polished stone directly on your Third Eye while lying down. Choose an oval or rounded blue Lapis Lazuli polished stone if you want it to fit perfectly on your Third Eye, which is between your two physical eyes and about an inch up. The Lapis energy goes directly into your chakra.
The best type of activity to do while in this layout is to do a visualization meditations. Visualization meditations are ones where you conjure up images while you take shamanic journeys. This could be to the spirit realm, where you see yourself meeting higher beings or passed loved ones. This could also be earthly visualizations of yourself taking actions to achieve specific goals.

Gridding with Lapis during Meditations and Affirmations

If you are using stone eggs in your grid, program them to bring you new ideas, innovation, and revelations through the Third Eye Chakra.
If you are using spheres in your grid, program them to bring you a comprehensive total awareness of any challenge you are facing, so you can handle it with ease and a wise, spiritual perspective.
Crystal Ball Gazing into Lapis Lazuli Spheres

Crystal ball gazing is about seeing a higher perspective, which is a goal that aligns perfectly with the energy of your Lapis Lazuli sphere. Geared to help you in psychic visions, choosing Lapis balls for scrying is a prime choice.
Get lost in the ocean of blue crystal that entrances you with the gold and white mineral patterns. Large spheres that are placed in front of you are ideal for gazing. Smaller pieces can also be used, with the benefit that you can also hold them in your hands when you do other spiritual ceremonies.

Lapis for a Lifetime
Opening the Third Eye Chakra takes a lifetime of practice, sometimes several lifetimes. If you don't quickly acquire clairvoyance, you are not alone. Most of us develop the Third Eye through a lot of hard and consistent work over the years. Some of us may have been born with natural gifts and wish to hone our abilities.
Take pride in the small steps, the visions you do gain, the insights you start to realize and the calm knowing presence that begins to infiltrate your personality when you work with Lapis throughout your lifetime.
