Welcome to Crystals Tuesday! This week, I’m going to teach you about one of my absolute favorite crystals: Amethyst! It also happens to be my birthstone, which I feel makes it extra special for me. Not only does it have an alluring color, Amethyst is a versatile crystal since it can be used for many things such as an aide to help enhance your intuition, it can be used to help you dream more, and it can even be used as a protection crystal.
Amethyst is purple in color, and its shade varies from light lavender to a rich dark purple. This crystal is most often associated with the Crown Chakra, which is how you connect with Source - your deity(ies), Universe, or High Self. It can also be used with the Third Eye Chakra, which is associated with our intuition and most connected with our dream state. Sleeping with Amethyst under your pillow or on your night stand next to your bed will help you to have more vivid dreams and dream more often overall. For assistance in increasing your intuition, simply carry the crystal in your pocket or wear a piece of amethyst jewelry.
Because of its calming properties, this crystal is also good to carry for protection against negative or overwhelming energies; especially if you struggle with anxiety or anger. Take this crystal with you if you’re planning on going out in public spaces, whether you’re just going out shopping or going to a concert. In fact, it is because of its vibrational output that this crystal works so well for so many situation. Overall, it can be summarized as a crystal that promotes balance.
