Amethyst is a gemstone often worn by healers, as they believe it has the power to greatly focus energy. Promoting a love of the divine, it encourages selflessness and spiritual wisdom. By opening multidimensional awareness, Amethyst is said to enhance metaphysical abilities which make it an excellent stone for meditation and scrying. Lightworkers believe Amethyst can facilitate out-of-body experiences, help with dream recall, and assist with visualization. It guards against psychic attacks, transmuting it into love. A natural tranquilizer, Amethyst blocks geopathic stress and negative environmental energies. Harmonizing the physical, mental, and emotional bodies and linking them to the spiritual, it purifies the aura. Amethyst is helpful for people about to make the transition through death and supports coming to terms with a loss.
The word Amethyst derives from Greek for "to be intoxicated" and was historically worn to prevent drunkenness, especially during war. They believed the stone had a sobering effect on overindulgence and could be used to overcome addictions. Beneficial to the mind, it calms or stimulates as appropriate, helping to feel more focused, assisting in the assimilation of new ideas, and connecting cause with effect. This stone is great for people with overactive emotions as it can restore balance to their emotional highs and lows.
