Amethyst – The All Purpose Stone

Article by Justine Melton

Hi Friends. I have been getting a lot of questions about what type of stones/crystals goes well with Reiki Healing. I have written an article here on Reiki Rays before that is a basic guide on what to use to get started.

Today I would like to focus on Amethyst and share with you all of the many amazing things this little stone can help you with.

Amethyst is actually a member of the quartz family, which is no surprise with how powerful its healing powers are. It can help with so many different things and is known as the all purpose stone. It is one of the top three stones that I recommend to use in combination with Reiki healing.

Amazing Abilities of Amethyst:

  •  It is a meditating and calming stone
  •  Helps bring calmness, balance, patience and peace to your life
  •  Helps relieve anxiety and helps calm anxiety attacks
  •  Helps with telepathy
  •  Helps with past life regression

  •  Helps with clairaudience
  •  Helps with clairvoyance
  •  Helps with communication with angels
  •  Helps with money issues
  •  Helps with legal problems
  •  Provides psychic protection
  •  Helps with bereavement
  •  Helps with any kind of personal loss/grief
  •  Helps bring emotional stability and inner strength to your life
  •  Helps with overcoming addiction of all kinds
  •  Helps with withdrawl symptoms

Amethyst is also the birth stone for the month of February. Those born in February may feel an unexplained strong pull to this particular stone.

Angels like to send purple light to people. Purple has amazing healing abilities and amethyst happens to be purple as well. Having a small amethyst stone (even as small as a dime) can enhance any healing energy sent to you from angels or through Reiki.

How to work with Amethyst:

  •  Make a power symbol on the palm of your hand and then simply hold the amethyst stone in your hand for 5-30 minutes. You can even do this while you are watching television.
  • Have your client hold it in their hand during a Reiki session. You can also set it on yourself while you do self-reiki or set it in front of you.
  • Keep it in your purse, pocket, bra, night stand, or anywhere else close to you.
  • Be sure to leave it in the moon light during a full moon to cleanse and charge it.

Wishing you all love and light.

    I live in an apartment building(and am also in a wheelchair) where my apartment is situated, the moon isn’t always out on the side of my balcony….in that case,is there another alternative to charging crystals?….and where can I find amethyst? I have quite a few stones/crystals already but never found amethyst.
