I recently gotten a Lapis Lazuli cube. I cleared and saged it. For some reason, it's a tad bit too strong. Whenever I have it on my person, both of my arms start to get pains in them and my stomach starts to hurt. Sometimes when I hold it in my hand it feels like it's burning. Is this normal for me to feel like this?
Thank you for your inquiry. I have known Lapis Lazuli to cause a strong reaction in others, so you are not alone in your experiences. Perhaps you could shorten the duration of your exposure to it, only utilizing it for short periods of time until you are more attuned to it's energy. You could also try using it with another crystal that may soften the effects, such as Smokey Quartz or Lepidolite.
I must share the standard disclaimer that I am not a doctor and cannot give out medical advice. Crystals for healing should be used as a complement to other therapies and not as a replacement for regular medical care. The information offered here is based on a combination of my own personal experiences and that of others on using crystals for healing. My hope is that you will let your own intuition guide your path in working with crystals as well.
