Amethyst is a meditative and calming stone which works on the emotional, spiritual, and physical parts of our being to promote calm, balance, and peace. These qualities, arising from the influence of Amethyst around us, helps to create a more patient view of the world and engagement with daily affairs. As a variety of quartz, amethyst has the energies inherent in quartz, as well as its own unique qualities.
Amethyst is very good to have around when dealing with legal problems and money issues. The calming and balancing effect of Amethyst enables a better and more stable mindset in dealing with worldly matter around the law and money, which, in turn, can lead to prosperity and abundance as a result.
In the psychic and spiritual realms, amethyst is an excellent all-purpose stone that can increase spirituality and enhance intuition and psychic abilities. Amethyst helps to promote a clear connection between the earth plane and other planes and worlds. Amethyst is also excellent for meditation and lucid dreaming. Amethyst may also be helpful in developing telepathy, doing past life regression work, clairaudience, clairvoyance, and communication with ‘angels’ (entities). Amethyst also protects against psychic attacks or the perceived attacks generated by the fears we carry, especially during spiritual work.
Apart from spiritual protection, Amethyst is also regarded as being helpful with protection against thieves, and protection when traveling.
