November is always a month that brings gratitude front and center, and top of mind. Most people I know look forward to Thanksgiving, family get-togethers, pumpkin pie, and the kick-off to the holiday season and Christmas with Black Friday!
Lapis Lazuli – Stimulates personal & spiritual power, releases stress & brings deep peace. Harmonizes physical, emotional, mental, & spiritual levels bringing deep inner knowing. Revealing the inner truth and encourages self-awareness and self-expression. As a powerful thought amplifier, it can stimulate the higher faculties of the mind, bringing clarity & objectivity.

The first thing that popped into my head from this month’s topic was self-care, self-love and ‘you matter.’ All topics covered before however, because of our conditioning, I can see that one would have to recognize the idea that we have unique needs before we can even begin to look at these other themes. We’re all here on purpose, to be. That’s it, to be, in this world being who we are. All else is programming and ego/fear. And believe me when I say I KNOW!
Self-reflection has naturally led me to more self-awareness and self-knowledge, understanding of self-sabotage, and gaining some measure of self-control. This journey has also led me to more of my true self, the real me if you like. What I call this is embracing my personal power which lies solely in the Solar Plexus Chakra (Manipura – Yellow).
