7 Ways to Use the Power of Amethyst

7_ways_large

 

One of my favorites crystals is Amethyst. I think it's the color that attracted me to it first The way the light hits a cluster is so mysterious and mystical all at the same time. I use it to cleanse my jewelry. Simply place one or two pieces on a cluster, leave it to do its magic for 24 hours and hey presto, clean as a whistle! I don’t know exactly how it works, but energetically anything I leave on my cluster always feels as if it has just been through a wash cycle. I have Amethyst dotted around my office. A cluster sleeps next to my computer to cleanse the energy coming and going from it. I feel intuitively that it's about the color. Most Amethyst is a rich violet, the color of change, so whenever you want to go through change or you need support as you tackle the energy of change then carry a piece with you or pop a piece inside your bed pillow.

Amethyst was once considered a precious stone. It's known as the “Stone of Spirit,” mirroring the color of the crown chakra - our doorway to the Divine. Amethyst is used in Mala beads as a meditation tool in Tibet and is said to calm, protect, and cleanse the spirit. Its color strengthens the muscles of the eyes. Gazing into an amethyst sphere will exercise your eye muscles, it really works too! I tried this many years ago when I was having some eye problems and it was so successful that I ceased to wear glasses. I got lazy though and haven't worked with Amethyst this way lately, hence why you'll see me in my specs in some of my videos. I need to get back to Amethyst orb gazing pronto!

Its name comes from the Greek word Amethystos, meaning to be sober or not to be drunk. There are two stories linked with Amethyst, here is the least violent version. The tale reveals the love of Bacchus the God of Wine for one of Aphrodite’s nymphs named Amethyst. Problem was Amethyst didn't fancy him. She got tired of his advances and begged Aphrodite to help curb his enthusiasm. The Goddess of Love granted Amethyst’s wish and transformed her into a beautiful clear quartz crystal. Byseide himself, Bacchus poured his cup of wine over the top of the crystal - making it change color - and vowed never to drink again. That's probably why it's associated with sobriety. In Greece, goblets were made from Amethyst with the idea that they could beat drunkenness. Now there's a different perspective for you.

These days it’s a different kind of spirit that Amethyst works best with! 

Amethyst is a stone of transformation, healing and cleansing. It is known for its ability to help release addictions - hence the story. It's violet color raises your vibration turning your thoughts to service and what you can do for others.  

Little side note here; those born on the violet ray are here to be of service.

One of the best ways to work with the Amethyst mojo is to wear it. Wearing Amethyst brings peace and calmness to my soul and is especially effective when made by someone that is a healer - like me. I wonder what it does for you? Do let me know in the comments below.

Amethyst is also a protective stone - remember it transforms energy so anything coming at you will get kicked right out of your space. Right now I am sleeping with one of my tumbled Amethyst stones tucked safely into my pillow. I wake up feeling more relaxed and in tune with my intuition, always a good way to greet the new day right. It's really a great stone to have anywhere in your home or work space. Have it with you next time you take a shower or bath. Invite it to do what it does best and see how you feel.

Amethyst is of course a great stone for a spiritual teacher, it helps you to find and access your truth, connect with your Higher Self, and then somehow dissipates the fear that can go with sharing your wisdom.
