Amethyst is a stone of spiritual protection and purification. It can be an aid to curbing overindulgence and giving up bad habits. It can be used to assist one in quitting smoking, drinking or drug use. It stimulates the crown chakra and is an aid to meditation, helping one to still one’s thoughts and move into higher states of consciousness. It can clear one’s energy field of negative influences and attachments, and can thereby facilitate the creation of an energetic ‘shield’—a field of spiritual Light around the body that wards off the negativity in one’s environment.
Amethyst is an ideal stone for enhancement of one’s physical environment. Placing Amethyst clusters, geodes or crystals in one’s home, meditation room, car, etc., can bring the feeling that one is surrounded and protected by a ‘bubble of Light.’ For this reason Amethyst is an especially recommended stone for everyone from healers and psychologists to teachers and truck drivers. If one is ill, placing an Amethyst specimen in one’s room can help keep one’s healing space clear. Wearing Amethyst maintains the inner space of one’s body and energy field in a state of balance and wellbeing. In all cases, one is advised to clear the energies of one’s Amethyst pieces from time to time. The easiest method is to hold the stone under running water for a minute or less, while affirming the intention that the stone be cleared.
For spiritual protection, Amethyst works especially well when combined with Moldavite
. Amethyst generates its characteristic ‘bubble of Light’ shield, while the Moldavite raises one’s vibrational frequency to a level at which one simply doesn’t resonate with the lower energies of negative entities or dark forces. The spiritual connection provided by Amethyst is greatly enhanced by stones such as Azeztulite, Phenacite, Scolecite and Natrolite. Amethyst also harmonizes with all varieties of Quartz
, including Citrine
, Smokey Quartz, Clear Quartz, Chrysoprase, Opal, Tiger Eye and all types of Chalcedony. Sugilite and Amethyst together are the best pair for releasing addictive behavior. Other stones which enhance Amethyst protective qualities include Black Tourmaline, Pyrite, Obsidian and Jet.
Amethyst is a cardinal Wind element stone. The Wind element stimulates the mind, the intuitive and psychic abilities, and one’s connection to the spiritual realms. Amethyst embodies all of these properties, making it a powerful tool for spiritual expansion and cognitive understanding. Amethyst is a classic meditation tool. Its energy allows one to easily enter into a meditative state and to maintain conscious awareness while in communion with the Divine. The vibration of Amethyst stimulates the higher mind and facilitates brain function. Because of its ability to stimulate the third eye, crown and etheric chakras, Amethyst is a natural choice for psychic opening and intuitive work. Its inherent high frequency acts as a barrier against lower energies, making it a valuable protective tool for those doing psychic or intuitive work. Amethyst’s energy builds a cocoon of Light around one’s aura, creating a powerful resonant field that helps one remain clear and centered while staying open to spiritual direction and intuitive information.
Amethyst’s ability to activate the higher mind allows one to gain a clearer comprehension and understanding of the dynamics and root causes of life experiences. Due to this enhanced clarity and balancing of the mind and thought, it can be useful in assisting one in overcoming addiction by counteracting the effects of drugs on brain function while imparting its own peaceful, blissful energy. Amethyst assists in eliminating emotion-based decision-making, allowing one to take actions based on higher guidance and spiritual understanding. In healing work, Amethyst helps one understand the root cause of one’s disease or imbalance. Its ability to lend clarity assists one in identifying the damaging beliefs, behaviors and habits that brought an energetic imbalance into the physical realm. It reveals one’s ego-driven self-destructive patterns and the root experiences behind them. It helps one take responsibility for one’s reality by reminding one of our cocreative relationship with the Universe. Amethyst facilitates meditation and engenders communion and communication with one’s guides and angels. It assists one in surrendering to the Divine and assuming one’s spiritual power as a creation of that Divine being. It opens and clears the third-eye and crown chakras, which in turn accelerates the development of intuitive and psychic abilities.
