Amethyst rebound

I love the stone because it is my birth stone, and it really does help me to sleep better and keeps me calmer, how about that!?!

Moment of Clarity

I never believed in the healing qualities of gemstones before, but this summer I was suffering from very heavy depression. I was hopeless and thought there was no way out, and resigned myself to my fate. I fell physically ill and my friend brought me an amethyst necklace as a gift from Japan. I put it on and after my fever broke, I suddenly felt relieved of a great weight! I also instantly knew what I needed and wanted to do with my life, and began that very afternoon to pursue it. I am now feeling better than ever and on my way to the life and career that I know I am meant for.

An experience with an amethyst

At one point in my life I was very depressed and felt nothing inside, all was black. Back home I threw everything of my past away and took one last attempt at staying alive. I rode my bike to the next county (about 60 miles) in a thunderstorm. Then suddenly my spirit guide appeared, she had a belt of very beautiful stones around her waist , and she held out her hand and inside was a palm sized purple stone. I asked her "what is that" she called it "experience." I said who's, yours or mine, and she said yours. Well the next day an old friend stopped by and said I feel this belongs to you and held out her hand that had a palm sized purple stone, my friend called it a energy stone-a amethyst! After a short time of carrying that stone with me always the depression went away and I became a well known clairvoyant psychic medium in my town.

Experience with Amethyst

Besides being a medical and master hypnotherapist, I also work with the angels. During a session with them, the angels suggested to me that I use amethyst whenever feeling tired or out of sorts. I began collecting pieces of amethyst jewelry and clusters of it. I find that my energy is lifted so quickly when I wear it! It is a very powerful energy.

When I sleep at night I love to have my amethyst necklace on me. It helps sooth my mind and relax me from all the stress iIve had through out the day.

Assists Lucid Dreaming

My favorite spiritual stone is amethyst. I especially like deep purple amethysts, although the lighter shades supposedly carry the same healing properties as the darker ones. Just a personal preference I guess. I hold an amethyst sphere in my hands during meditation to help open up my crown chakra so I can better communicate with my spiritual teachers in higher planes. I have also tucked a smaller amethyst stone inside my pillowcase at bedtime to assist me with lucid dreaming and astral flight.

Amethyst Aids in Psychic Awareness

The amethyst is a powerful stone for healing. It carries many healing properties. It also aids in psychic awareness and helps with imagery. It is a stone to help quieten the mind. If worn while sleeping, it helps you to interpret dreams, and to ward off nightmares. It enhances intuition and inspirations. Gives you clarity and insight. An excellent stone for meditations. Good for the upliftment of the spirit. Should never be cleansed by the sun. Carries the energy of the moon, female energy. Does best with water cleansing or the moon. The best stone for the 6th chakra.

Spiritual and Calming

I use amethyst to keep me in touch with my spiritual side and connected to what is going on with myself as well as others. It allows me to act for the best of all instead of self even when it may not be what I would consider to be what is best for me. It keeps me calm and allows me to feel that I have enough time to do what I need to do even when time is limited. It allows me to work slowly even when I am feeling the need to rush and this allows me to do things right the first time instead of having to redo things because I rushed through them. Amethyst does not like the sunlight at all but likes the moonlight, sea water, and cold. It loves being under snow or in the freezer as a way of cleaning it and recharging it. Amethyst is a good stone for a creative person to have around because it does work so well at calming them.
