PROPERTIES: Calming, protective, balancing, centering
Amethyst is extremely powerful and protective with a high spiritual vibration and strong healing and cleansing powers. It blocks negative environment energies and guards against ill-wishing or psychic attack, transmuting the energy into love. It is a natural tranquillizer, helping to still the mind, balancing out highs and lows, aiding emotional centering, dispelling negative emotions and supports coming to terms with loss. It can bring focus and control to a scattered mind, but can also stimulate the mind, enhancing memory, improving motivation, and improving goal setting. Amethyst opens the intuition and enhances psychic gifts and higher states of consciousness and spiritual awareness and is useful for scrying, insomnia and meditation. It aids decision-making and the assimilation of new ideas, bringing in common sense and spiritual insights. Traditionally, it was worn to ward off drunkenness and has a sobering effect on over-indulgence and physical passions, supporting sobriety and overcomes addictions and blocks of all kinds. Used at a higher level, Amethyst opens to another reality. It reminds you of your deep well of inner peace and is helpful for people transitioning. Amethyst can stabilize psychiatric conditions but should not be used in paranoia or schizophrenia.
