Happy New Year! As the first crystal mandala for 2017, this one represents VISION, and introduces the theme for the month, of life purpose and vision.
In the centre we have a lapis lazuli pyramid, surrounded by a ring of iolite tumble stones, lapis lazuli chips and clear quartz points, representing each month of the coming year.
I’m not actually sure what the flowers are, but I loved their shape and colour!
Lapis lazuli, a crystal that has massive personal significance for me, encourages taking charge of one’s life. It reveals inner truth, encourages self-awareness, and allows self-expression without holding back or compromising. This stone brings the enduring qualities of honesty, compassion, and uprightness to the personality.
Iolite is a vision stone. It activates the third eye and facilitates visualisation and intuitive insight when all the chakras are in alignment. It stimulates connection to inner knowing, and is used in shamanic ceremonies. Psychologically, it aids in understanding and releasing the causes of addiction and helps you to express your true self, free from the expectations of those around you. At a mental level Iolite clears thought forms.
Live the life of Your dreams: be brave enough to live the life of your dreams according to your vision and purpose instead of the expectations and opinions of others. ~ Roy T. Bennett, The Light in the Heart
