Amethyst Crystal

Hi everyone,
Thought I’d start the next few days with a little information on a few crystals their properties and how they can be used in healing practices.
Today Amethyst.

Awakens intuition, mental awareness and promotes psychic abilities as well as being fab at relieving stress and balancing moods.
Amethyst can be used to open and work with your Crown Chakra and your Third Eye Chakra. Also associated as the birth stone of February.

In mythology there are tales of Amethyst.
It’s hue from the blood-red wine tears of Dionysus.
The Amethyst was actually a young virgin who found herself on the receiving end of the Gods wrath when he was drunk. The young girl cried out to the Goddess Diana for help, the Goddess turned her into a shimmering pale stone. When Dionysus realized his folly, he wept into his wine glass and in his emotion overturned his goblet. The white stone soaked up the wine until it glowed a gentle purple hue.

Amethyst can change with the rise and fall of the light or when placed in different temperatures.
It evolves with the body and is closely connected to our conscious experiences in life.
Associated with healthy cell regeneration, promoting hormonal balance, encouraging healthy sleep and rest. Amethyst helps balance metabolism and positively serves the endocrine system.
Helping the body find harmony so it doesn’t produce too much cortisol, this cuts down stress and tension.
The purplish hue of Amethyst also cleanses and detoxifies mind, body and spirit. Amethyst can also help those who struggle with brain fog or migraines.

A quick way of using Amethyst is to get a jug of moon water or distilled drinking water.
Place the Amethyst into the jug of water.
Say: “I infuse this water with the positive energies of Amethyst, gently remove that which no longer serves me. May this water bring love, light and happiness to my mind body and spirit. Blessed be.”
You can drink from this water through the day but be careful not to swallow your crystal, personally pouring from the jug into a glass is preferable.

Another way is to run a bath place your charged crystal above your head.
Light a candle with your intention of cleansing and energising that chakra for example.
Or simply place under you pillow to enhance healthy sleep.
You can wear your crystal during the day too.
Personally I like to have an Amethyst crystal with me during certain meditations.
Lots of love, light and Brightest Blessings always.
