Amethyst is my birthstone and has become one of my favorite crystals to work with. It is primarily associated with the Third Eye and Crown chakras. It is a powerful stone in crystal energy work and is one that I would recommend as a must have for any crystal collection. It is common, easy to find, and fairly inexpensive.
I use it often with clients who are suffering from sleep problems such as insomnia or nightmares. I also use it often to ease the symptoms associated with addiction and alcoholism. Amethyst has a wide array of uses and is a staple in energy work. It can be bought tumbled, in rough chunks, natural points, and beautiful clusters.
Amethyst sooths emotional pain. By helping to ease and release anger, rage, grief, and fear it assists with healing from past abuse or trauma. It also eases the insomnia, nightmares and night terrors that often accompany such trauma. Amethyst can increase feelings of love, peacefulness, serenity and encourage selflessness.
Amethyst increases wisdom and clarity and aids in decision making, making it a wonderful stone for students and business owners. It can also help one better handle stress and let go of anything negative thought patterns.
Amethyst can help ease the symptoms of alcoholism and addiction, aiding those who are suffering. It helps to relieve headaches and migraines and aids the healing of indigestion, bruises, soreness and burns. It is a good support stone for those going through treatment for cancer and blood disorders, helping to ease the discomfort of treatment and boosting response to it. It is also a good support stone for those who are preparing for death or transition.
In addition to cleansing and balancing the Third Eye and Crown chakras, Amethyst can enhance psychic abilities and visualization skills and is commonly used for these purposes. It can aid in dream interpretation and recall and with astral travel, giving another good reason to use this stone at bedtime. It is helpful in making connections with the inner child, higher self, and Spirit.
