Amethyst represents the violet or purple color, the color of enlightenment and attainment of higher self. It is a facilitator in transforming the lower level energies into higher oscillations of the spiritual realms. Amethyst is highly regarded as a spiritual tool by many crystal healers due to its more gentle effect compared to rock crystal, while still possessing the inherent superb electrical conductivity of quartz. I believe amethyst possesses strong healing properties, but it’s not “showy.”
Amethyst is a stone for meditation. It is excellent for moving the mind into the alpha brain wave cycle smoothly and rapidly, thus making for a great meditation crystal. Probably that is the reason why amethyst has always been known as a sleeping aid down through the centuries. It exerts a calming effect behind the scenes.
If you suffer from insomnia, try placing an amethyst under your pillow. It should be ideally 5-10 cm in length, and point in a North-South direction. An elixir of amethyst drunk at night is also beneficial for insomnia, as is wearing an amethyst pendant.
Amethyst is the traditional birthstone for the month of February. In times past, amethyst was regarded by the ancient Romans as a protector against intoxication and they drank wine from amethyst encrusted goblets. Till today, amethyst is still considered to be useful for people who are trying to break their addictions and also to be free from addictive personalities, bringing calmness and sobriety to all situations.
Amethyst helps one to make judgments and carry out responsibilities. Its calming properties help to moderate high strung temperaments and it encourages the binding of the physical to the intellectual and beyond, into the spiritual realms. It stimulates the intellect, but tempers it with a universal sense of compassion and connection.
Amethyst is used for healing the endocrine system and also good for increasing the efficiency of the pituitary gland by helping the endocrine glands to secrete hormones in the correct proportions. Amethyst is also used in the healing of nervous disorders; it is placed on the third eye area or held in the hand during meditation sessions, and the clarity and calmness it brings to bear on the self will be felt. If placed on the Third Eye area, it dispels headaches.
Overall, amethyst works as a good healing crystal by strengthening the entire body, smoothing over, and tonifying the various systems in the body.
