The name Lapis Lazuli comes from the Persian word lazuward, meaning “Blue.” Prized for thousands of years and favored especially in ancient Egypt, it was believed to lead the soul into immortality and open the heart to love. This royal stone was said to contain the soul of the gods. The deep celestial blue color still remains as a symbol of royalty and honor. A powerful thought amplifier, this crystal activates the higher mind and enhances intellectual ability by stimulating the desire for knowledge, truth, and understanding. Like most blue stones, Lapis will stimulate and activate the throat chakra. This creates a vibration and unique energy that may challenge many people, thus making Lapis a powerful stone for spiritual growth and alignment. It may be called a truth crystal, as it also ensures that the words you speak are in alignment with your personal truth.

The legends and healings practices associated with Shamballa Bracelets have a history as old as time. Several ancient texts from various traditions mention beings from ‘another world’ that exists within our own. One such world, referenced in Tibetan Buddhist and Hindu traditions, is Shambhala, a hidden kingdom within our own realm. According to legend, it is a land where only the pure of heart can live, a place where love and wisdom reigns and the people are immune to suffering, want or old age. It is a spiritual, even supernatural place, which we do not fully understand and is difficult to find for the way is not clear. Many religious scholars believe it is located in the higher dimensional realms and can only be reached by those who possess appropriate karmic connection.
Shamballa Bracelets take the ideology behind the Pure Land and transmute it into a tangible item, said to bring transformative qualities to those who wear them. Historically, they've been used to assist in meditation, similar to a rosary. Each bead may signify a person’s sacred journey to Nirvana or a step in their journey to oneness. Our intention is for these bracelets to serve as a tool for you to accelerate your ascension process so that someday you too may be worthy enough to enter the Kingdom of Shambhala.
