Last week we posted a blog on how to manifest with crystals. We talked about how our realities are shaped by our emotions, which reflect our thoughts and will eventually influence our actions. This blog talked about how crystals have their own unique set of properties and benefits. 

Amethyst is a powerful crystal with a long history. Let’s look deeper into the properties of Amethyst.


History of Amethyst

For years, Amethyst has been the emblem of peace, cleansing, and calming energy. It signifies purification to spiritual and divine beings. It is well-known that amethyst is linked to serenity, understanding, trust, and grace. Buty, did you know that Amethyst has been used in cultures around the world for centuries? Ancient Greeks and Romans believed Amethyst could ward off the powers of Bacchus, and keep the wearer clear-headed. 


Properties of Amethyst 

People are often drawn to the deep to light purple colour of this beautiful crystal, but its energetic properties are truly incredible. Amethyst is a calming, tranquil stone.  When you hold it, the calming and relaxing energy showers you with feelings of peace and serenity.  Amethyst  is said to promote feelings of tranquility. 

Generally speaking, purple-hued crystals indicate mystery, magic, healing and good judgment.


Metaphysical Properties of Amethyst:

Amethyst is often used to influence the energy of the wearer. Large beautiful geodes can be found in homes across the world, as it is known to cleanse negative energy and produce a calming, tranquil atmosphere. But there is more to Amethyst than just that. 

Amethyst is a protective stone, with so many benefits! 


Here are some of the benefits of Amethyst:

  • Provides calming, tranquil energy 
  • Relieves stress, tension, and anxiousness
  • Provides spiritual protection
  • Clears negative energy
  • Helps with sleep and dream recall
  • Enhances intuition and wisdom
  • Grounding

Fun Fact: Amethyst is known as a natural tranquilizer. This crystal is responsible for deep energetic healing and it holds the potential to dissolve negative energy that no longer aligns with one’s current energy. This may include limiting beliefs and/or old ways of thinking - restoring balance and serenity in one’s mind, body, and spirit. 


Who can wear Amethyst?

Since everything is made of energy, anyone attracted/drawn to Amethyst should wear it or incorporate it into their everyday life. For Astrology geniuses, it is recommended that these zodiacs are best equipped to wear Amethyst;

  • Aries 
  • Cancer 
  • Leo 
  • Scorpio 

While these signs work exceptionally well with the energy of amethyst, you should not feel discouraged if you aren’t one of them! Any sign can use Amethyst. Energy attracts energy, and everyone has their own unique energy. For instance, individuals who desire tranquility and relaxation are equally suggested to use Amethyst and integrate its healing properties. 


Here are some crystals that work well with Amethyst:

  • Rose Quartz 
  • Clear Quartz 
  • Citrine
  • Lepidolite
  • Blue Lace Agate
  • Tiger’s Eye
  • Smoky Quartz
  • Hematite
  • Labradorite
  • Black Tourmaline 

For instance, pairing Clear Quartz, known as the Master Healer, with Amethyst, a protective stone, can amplify the potential of its protective effect. This crystal combination can also absorb energies that one doesn’t align with. They are useful for grounding the physical and emotional states of an individual. 


How does Amethyst protect from negative energy?

Some may question, why do I need protection? And from what?  Since energy can be shared, experienced and felt the moment we enter the room, it is always good practice to protect yourself.  Amethyst is a powerful stone of protection and it can shield you from psychic attacks and negative energy. 

By keeping amethyst in your pocket, or wearing it as jewelry, you can effectively shield your energetic field. This protects you from absorbing energies that don’t serve your highest purpose. 


Amethyst for Anxiety

It goes without saying that sufferers of anxiety should always follow the advice and care of their medical team. But sometimes, we seek energetic support to help us through challenges such as stress and anxiety. 

Now you may ask, how can freeing ourselves from anxiety help protect us spiritually? Vibrating in the frequency of love, mindfulness, and peace will protect people from negative and stressful energies such as low-vibrational thought patterns, beliefs, and actions.

Using Amethyst to bring calm and peaceful energy to your life may help relieve you of symptoms of stress and anxiety.
