Amethyst is a stone of spiritual protection and purification. Amethyst is an ideal stone for maintaining the inner space of one’s body and energy field in a state of balance and well-being.
It can be an aid to curbing overindulgence and giving up bad habits. 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 a cardinal Wind element stone. The Wind element stimulates the mind, the intuitive and psychic abilities and one’s connection to the spiritual realms. The vibration of Amethyst stimulates the higher mind and facilitates brain function. Its inherent high frequency energy acts as a barrier against lower energies, making it a valuable protective tool for those doing psychic or intuitive work.
Amethyst is an ideal stone for enhancement of one's physical environment. Placing Amethyst clusters, geodes or crystals in one's home can bring the feeling that one is surrounded and protected by a 'bubble of Light'.
For this reason Amethyst is especially recommended for everyone from healers and psychologists to teachers and truck drivers.
Amethyst’s energy builds a cocoon of Light around one’s aura, creating a powerful resonant field that helps one remain clear and centred while staying open to spiritual direction and intuitive information.
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.
Affirmation: “I am purified, uplifted and protected through my connection with the Divine”
