Lapis trägt den „Blues“ in sich, eine tiefe Melancholie. Beleidigt sein mit Rückzugstendenzen, viel Verantwortungsbewusstsein, Schwermut, all dies ist die Essenz von Lapis.
Körperlich gesehen sind Kopfschmerz (möchte das Problem rational lösen), und Druckgefühl auf der Brust (unerlöstes Herz) vorherrschend. Das Bild vom Märchen: der eiserne Heinrich/Froschkönig, der seinem erlösten Herrn immer wieder antwortet, nachdem dieser auf ein knallendes Geräusch hin fragt, ob der Wagen bricht:
Nein, Herr, der Wagen nicht, es ist ein Band von meinem Herzen, dass da lag in großen Schmerzen..., aus Erleichterung über die Erlösung seines Herrn.
Und genau diese Erleichterung kann das Mittel einem noch unerlösten Herzen bringen.
Hineingesprenkelt in das Blau des Steines sind immer wieder kleine Goldtupfen, unerreichbar für das Blau und dabei ständige Sehnsucht, sei es als goldene Kugel (wer kann sich ein goldenes Spielzeug schon leisten), sei es als Reichtum – denn Lapis hat in der Regel haushohe Schulden und wünscht sich nichts sehnlicher, als davon freizukommen (erlöst zu sein), um seine Verpflichtungen gegenüber Familie und Gläubigern zu erfüllen.
Und wissen wir, wie der verzauberte Königsohn in den Brunnen gekommen ist? Darüber gibt das Märchen keine Auskunft. Vielleicht hatten seine Gläubiger die Geduld mit ihm verloren und ihn dort hineingeworfen? Und nur eine vermögende Frau könnte ihn erlösen? Vermutungen, ich weiß, aber jedes Märchen hat ja einen wahren Kern...
Der blaue Hindugott Vishnu ist in Indien Symbol des Weltenerhalters, der sich als Avatar immer wieder über alle Zeiten verkörpert. So gilt auch Buddha als eine seiner Inkarnationen, was gläubigen Hindus erlaubt, den Buddhismus nicht als Gegenreligion zu betrachten und umgekehrt. Hindus verehren aus der Vielzahl der Götter immer ihren persönlichen Lieblingsgott, was zu einem immensen Reichtum an religiösen Splittergruppen geführt hat, die aber merkwürdigerweise alle miteinander harmonisieren und sich gegenseitig tolerieren.
Ein erleichternder, erlösender blauer Stein mag sich auch als Weltenerhalter herausstellen, der Frosch im Brunnen würde jedenfalls als Königssohn wiedergeboren durch die Königstochter;
[Vanessa Parrado Lobo]
Negativ: Numb/stiff/trembling of the hands/arms, as well as staggering gait/sagging in the knees when trying to walk; dream about the shuffling gait.
Pain in limbs and rheumatic complaints.
Provers noticed heart disorders (sensation of cardiac arrest)
3 different provers: various symptoms of vertigo and sounds in the ears. This included whistling high frequency sounds twice.
Bleeding from the anus and bloody stool/bleeding nose/complaints regarding the head “As if vessels rupturing”;
Consolidation and disintegration
Symptoms of consolidation: like metal plate in the head/petrification/swelling of indurated lymph nodes/dream about a lump in the breast. One dream the substance was Granite.
Deep sadness leading to feelings of disintegration, which showed itself in physical symptoms as joint is as if disintegrated, sensation of disintegration of the back and in delusions of transparency.
Lightness and heaviness
A sensation of heaviness appears: will petrify completely/Colossus of Rhodos. Constant fatigue/exhaustion/weakness.
Discrepancy between internal lightness and external heaviness and tiredness becomes apparent. It could be said that there is something tender/subtle versus rigidity/sluggishness/slowness/lack of concentration versus being rushed and nervousness.
Polarity can be seen between calmness, deep sadness and fighting tears (not >).
Womanliness, motherhood, pregnancy
Two provers “As if they were pregnant”. Dreams: the great mother/being pregnant/breast feeding/mother milk play/lump in the breast.
Dreams: altars/paintings of saints/trip to Buddha/also about witches/heathen rituals for the great mother.
Provers mentioned order and as a contrast clumsiness as an important theme. Things that were out of order: malfunctions of the car appeared/weaknesses in the organism surface/water damage that had been invisible until then was strongly emphasized.
Water and dryness
We mentioned the water theme as part of the synchronicity: the matching dreams about Noah’s ark/animal Polonaise, as a contrast: dryness and flakiness of the
skin/dry lips/dry mouth/dry cough/coryza with runny discharge, but also congestion of the nose.
Heat and cold
Sensation of heat combined + PERspiration on the face/cheeks/forehead/ears and the entire body, as well as dryness of the skin increased; less sensitivity to (sensations of) cold. Indicated for the search for meaning, that which is larger than the egoistic self. It is also for those searching for the cause of unhappiness or disease, or that which arises out of feeling tied to the mundane trivialities of life. Its resolution is in seeing the bigger picture, the aerial view of freedom, beauty, and larger perspective. It is also indicated for those who have not been nurtured properly and it allows them to ‘mother’ or nurture themselves. It improves communication, freedom of expression, and connectedness in families.

Provers and supervisors made the following comments before the substance was revealed:
“I experience a strong discrepancy between inside and outside, between physical and mental/emotional”
“Aversion to talk, but also enjoyment in meeting and exchanging with others.”
“I respond more sensitively to critics; I feel treated unfairly. But I also experience a strange lack of sensitivity and emotion, I am indifferent and observing.”
“There was a non-specific longing and later the feeling of change and sometimes euphoria.”
“Physically I became more and more immobile: hip, knee, thumb (“not being able to tackle something”) with weight gain.”
“I thought ‘now I will petrify completely’, I became more and more apathetic. I felt like the Colossus of Rhodes”
“Nevertheless, there was a feeling that something was going to change, as if it was about to happen; a certain clairvoyance, prophetic dreams, more sensitive in regards
to myself and others.”
Desire to retreat, I cleaned out the practice, cleaned the house. I spent one sleepless night because the fire in the oven wasn’t supposed to be out, that was very important
Dream about the mountain Ararat (the mountain where Noah’s ark landed): “I am riding in a train, sharing a compartment with my family, there is an announcement ‘the weather forecast calls for strong winds on the way to Westland(?), please dress warm’. I think to myself that such a wind doesn’t penetrate the walls of a train. I feel a breeze going through me in the dark. I can’t see my children and my husband in the dark. I apparently brought the wrong wardrobe for the trip. In the morning, through the trees of a big forest I can see a mighty gigantic white mountain. It is the “Ararat”, how magnificent, I had no idea that this is where this trip brings us. It is way more beautiful than I had ever imagined. The mountain is covered with pure snow. I cried out of happiness.”
After taking the remedy she acquired a tank with goldfish. Later she reported certain moods that were somewhat representative of the remedy:
She reported sudden moments of deep sadness. “Not even crying helps this state”, the prover says, “it is as if everything disintegrated.”
She cut her hair during the active phase of the remedy: “as if cutting the umbilical cord”. Her periods of sadness improved after that. Physically she felt clearly better after cutting her hair. “I desire clarity and being grounded.”
Prepared for a trip even though no plans existed. Some weeks later she goes on a trip to Thailand.
“Everything prepares for something new. She has to create order.”
The radiator of our car explodes on Sunday after receiving the remedy. It turns out later that this was due to a defect in the construction of the radiator.
The car is 12 years old and drove just fine thus far, in spite of the defect.”
“One week later, on another Sunday, I ran into a roadside ditch: the car was total loss. Nobody was injured.”
On another Sunday a waiter poured water over my shirt.”
“The remedy brings me closer to my true being, reliable and friendly on one side, physically and mentally rigid on the other.”
“It confronted me with my own rigid side. Listless and sluggish, rigid, no interest in cooperation.”
But the remedy also inspires something very deep, genuine, tender and subtle inside of me, the dimensions of which I can only imagine, because defense, blockage and
not-wanting-to-see dominate me.”
“I had a lot of technical difficulties in my house: can’t install the software, the phone doesn’t work, I am cut off from the world.”
One night the toilet was running, I was not able to turn off the water. I had to ask a friend for help that same night, because I could not handle the rushing sound of the water.”
“I was clumsy, dropped the globules all over the desk; poured water over files. I was trembling like an old woman.” “Many incidents involving water: It rained during the entire vacation. The bag on top of the car got wet and all homeopathy books were soaked.”
When repertorizing the mind and general symptoms of this remedy the main mineral constituents of
Jung: the phenomenon of synchronicity = “a simultaneousness of two or more corresponding but non-causally connected events”/saw non-causal, synchronistic events as indicative for our personal development in life (moments when we believe that we get off track or have lost track).
“The remedy brings about some synchronicity: when I picked flowers, I found a porcelain fragment with the same flower pattern as the flowers that I had picked.” She had additional perceptions, that dealt with premonitions.
Water = important: On the day when the group of provers met to find out the name of the remedy, the importance of water (see also the chapters in regards to the color blue) was confirmed by a particular synchronicity. This date in May of 1999 had been scheduled for a long time and was the end of the self-experimentation. Severe rainstorms plagued Bavaria in those days. On that exact date rain poured down like a flood and water came through the ceiling of the classroom. The enormous amounts of water
exposed a weak part of the ceiling that had been there for years.
It happened that many provers reported water problems, flooding, etc.
