Most people who know about rocks and minerals, even those who don't, know about Amethyst. Amethyst is one of the more commonly known crystals because of it's abundance found throughout the world. Amethyst is found in Brazil, Uraguay, South Korea, and even here in the states.
The crystal is actually one of several varieties of Quartz. It is characterized by violet and usually deep purple hughes. Amethyst is also the birthstone of Febraury. Amethyst was a stone of kings often used on breastplates of armor and prized for its purple symbolism to royalty. This variation of quartz is even mentioned in the bible and has been used by Egyptians and monks for spiritual purposes for ages.
Amethyst is aligned with third eye and crown chakra work.
So how can I use Amethyst for me?
I often use Amethyst when I am looking to calm my spirit, find solace, comfort, and quiet my mind.
The benefits of meditation are significantly increased when pairing with a high vibrational crystal.
1. Always cleanse new crystals when you get them (more blogs on that later).
2. Set your intention with your Amethyst. One example of this is to hold your crystal in your palm and internally speak what you are seeking.
3. Use it often- set somewhere you can see it, carry in your pocket, use on an altar, hold onto it during prayer and meditation, or carry a crystal pouch.
That's it! You have aligned your intentions with your Amethyst and now you can enjoy it's frequency! By allowing Amethyst into your energetic field you are instantly raising your vibrational movements.
I ALWAYS carry an Amethyst with me! It has been my go-to crystal since I was a little girl.
