About Lapis Lazuli
Lapis Lazuli is a deep blue semi-precious stone that has been prized since antiquity for its rare color. It often includes tiny specks of gold-colored pyrite, which make it shimmer like a sky full of stars. Lapis Lazuli is regarded as a stone of harmony and truth. Its deep, celestial blue remains the symbol of royalty and honor, gods and power, spirit and vision. Lapis Lazuli resonates with the Third Eye chakra, expanding psychic awareness and stimulating attunement to higher wisdom.
About the Runes
The runes are both an ancient alphabet and a set of powerful magickal sigils. They are particularly relevant to Norse and Heathen paths, but many Wiccans and other Pagans have adopted them because of their potency. According to legend, the god Odin received the runes after a long ordeal, and is revered as the patron of runic lore.
Using the Runes
Runes may be used for divination, magick, and meditation. For those who are unfamiliar with the meanings of the runes, there is a wealth of information about them in books and online.
The simplest way to use the runes is to ask a question, then reach into the bag and draw one runestone. Using a book, your own knowledge, or another guide, interpret the rune as it applies to the situation at hand. For complex questions, you can even draw multiple runes, assigning them different positions in the reading as is often done with Tarot cards.
To use the runes in spellwork, choose a rune whose meaning embodies the quality or force you are seeking to draw to you. Place the chosen rune on your altar, add it to a spell bag, or focus on it during meditation or trance work.
Much like the alphabet can be arranged to create infinite combinations of words, your rune set is a magickal toolbox that you can return to over and over to produce endless results.
