spellbindingly blue,

the rich hue of the heavens,

the cosmos,

long known to be connected to spiritual realms.

 

loved by ancient Egyptians,

celebrated in paintings and scrolls,

adornment of pharaohs and queens,

a jewel sometimes ground down

to make eyeshadow and magic elixirs.

 

in Persian folklore,

the stone was said to be the starry sky

shrunken down into a precious gem,

in it, contained the wisdom of the cosmos.

 

in Islam, a protector against the evil eye.

 

in Buddhism, a way to inner peace.

 

linked to the third eye chakra,

the eye of consciousness,

the one that sees all -

knowledge,

intuition,

wisdom,

insight,

awakening.

 

a stone of communication,

of speaking truth,

of being heard.

 

a stone of truth,

encouraging an honesty of spirit,

in thought,

in speech,

in writing,

always always

revealing truth.

 

a visionary stone,

an evolutionary aid,

a well of wisdom,

a teacher of sincerity,

humanity,

discretion,

honor.

 

Part of the  B L U E  collection,

a prayer for truth, honor, and wisdom,

and a prayer for a very blue November.
