Amethyst is known as one of the master Crystals when it comes to spirituality.
It is a powerful protection stone creating a bubble around the carrier, warding off psychic attacks and negative energy.
Physically, Amethyst boosts production of hormones and tunes the endocrine system and metabolism. It strengthens the cleansing and eliminating organs as well as the immune system, and is an excellent blood cleanser. Amethyst relieves physical, emotional and psychological pain or stress.
It’s a very good healing crystal for people who have, or are recovering from cancer, it’s a wonderful combination of healing and calming.
It is also seen as the sobering stone, very good for any and all forms of addiction, from alcoholism to anorexia, if you suffer with either of these, or love someone who does, a good sized piece of Amethyst under their bed, at the head end will work while they sleep (though it does also have a sobering effect on the libido too so bear that in mind! :)).
Along those lines, it is also said to be a wonderful anti-dote for a hangover or headache, take a smooth stone and rub gently on your temples for a couple of minutes to dissolve the head clouds.
It is the perfect stone for meditation. It is also the perfect calming antidote for rage and anger.
It creates a protective energy field around its carrier, assisting in transmuting negative energies within the wearer and protecting them from external negative energies.
Amethyst assists in encouraging our growth towards our higher potential and spiritual expansion. It also brings peace, insight and calmness, and helps insomnia sufferers sleep more easily.
