Amethyst is a powerful healing stone and is a wonderful ally to work with in healing yourself and others. It is a stone of protection, purification and communication with the Angelic Realms. Amethyst assists one in opening the third eye chakra and strengthening intuition and psychic abilities, including clairaudience (hearing Divine guidance), clairvoyance (seeing visions), and clairsentience (feeling your intuition physically). It will assist one to purify their energy centers and auric fields, and then protect them from absorbing negative energies from people or situations.
Amethyst can be easily obtained from a rock and mineral shop, or metaphysical store. When using amethyst, particularly a new one, it is important to cleanse it. There are several cleansing methods, but one of my favorites is to place it in a plant over night under the stars, or even better, in moonlight. When you are working regularly with a crystal, be sure to charge it monthly under the full moon. Small amounts of sunshine are OK too, and 20min will do wonders to cleanse and recharge your crystal, but it is not advisable to leave amethyst out in full sun for extended periods of time as they sun will eventually fade the vibrant purple colour. Amethyst can be worn or carried in a pocket to benefit one’s auric energy field. It may be placed under a pillow to prevent bad dreams and strengthen the lines of communication with guides and angels during dream time, also assisting in dream recall. Amethyst is also a wonderful stone for meditation, helping to open the third eye and protect one as they explore inner transformation and cosmic dimensions.
Amethyst is also known as a stone of sobriety; assisting one in releasing bad habits and addictions; whether they are physical in nature or psychological. If there is something that you wish to release in your life, work with amethyst to break free from these outmoded behaviors. Since Amethyst is part of the Quartz family, it can be programmed with the intention of the one who is working with it. To program your crystal, hold it in your right hand and ask that it release any and all old energies it may have picked up in it’s lifetime… as you are asking, blow lightly on the crystal to assist it in releasing the old energies. Then, take a deep breath and blow your intention, with love and light, into the crystal… for the highest good of all involved. This will work with most crystals, although best with any of the Quartz family. When you are done setting your intention, and the crystal is programmed, seal it with gratitude, just as if you had asked a close loved one a favour, and they had agreed to help you. Then keep the crystal close to you, with only you touching it so that it doesn’t pick up the vibes from anyone else.
This crystal is now your ally, and you will work together to achieve your dreams.
By the Grace of the Universe, for the highest good of all involved.
