Worry stones are smooth, polished gemstones, used to soothe stress and relieve anxiety. They usually come in the shape of an oval with a thumb-sized indentation. While initially, normal rocks found in water bodies were used for the purpose, these days, worry stones are often being manufactured using semiprecious gemstones.
How to use
Hold the worry stone between the index finger and thumb, gently moving one's thumb back and forth across the stone. This action of moving one's thumb back and forth across the stone, stimulates the hand nerves that reduce stress. It is a natural aid for self-calming, the simplest form of natural medicine.
The use of worry stones has many origins. Its use has been reported in ancient Tibet, Greece, Ireland, and with many tribes in the Americas. Worry stones made by sea water were generally used by Ancient Greeks. Native American tribes would pass their worry stones on to younger generations, creating a sense of connection with their ancestors.
More About Lapis Lazuli
Lapis lazuli is a combination of lazurite and calcite. Sometimes pyrite is also present. Lapis lazuli, or lapis as it's often simply called, is a crystal that's oozing in spiritual energy. In a sense, it's a timeless stone, which symbolises our spiritual selves at their most expansive and wide open state, where we are able to learn anything we desire to know. As a tool, lapis lazuli can act as a reminder to us that the subtle spiritual realms are there and open to connection and exploration.
The energy of the stone reminds us that we really do hold the answers to anything we want to know deep inside ourselves. If you want to know about the meaning of life, or what a certain symbol means, or how to be more intuitive, these answers are really inside you. A teacher may help you sometimes, but ultimately we are the ones who take action. Sometimes, when learning, it is easy to get attached to a certain teacher or set of teachings. Lapis teaches that that can be fine, but we also need to remain open so that other possibilities can enter when needed. Wearing lapis can act as a signal that you're opening yourself up to the power of divine inspiration.
