Amethyst is renowned for bringing a sense of calm and clarity to our chaotic world. Those who keep Amethyst close will find that they feel comforted, grounded and soothed in a truly uplifting way. Because Amethyst centers the emotions, it can be a beautiful aide in recovery for those suffering from the overwhelming emotions that come with grief, loss and all shades of sadness. Thanks to its divine spirituality, it’s a great stone for reminding people not to fear the unknown.
Death could be considered a transition, a change, and a leap to a higher realm and while of course there is grief in letting go of someone who is loved, there is also life to be celebrated and memories to be most cherished. Amethyst reminds us that in spirituality, there is also balance – it isn’t all about bypassing the negative and thinking that spiritual awakening leads to only positive thinking, but also recognizing the darkness and honoring it without holding it forever in the heart.
It also works wonderfully for those who tend to be quick to anger as it effectively dissipates the growth of rage and replaces it with a halo of serenity that can be hard to cut through.
While Amethyst works to sweep negativity away from clouding the mind, it also seems to trigger a spark that unveils our deepest wells of inspiration. When our mind is calm and focused we are able to tap into our creative mind and unveil all those ideas and interests that were stashed behind the wall of inner chaos.
Nurturing meditation, encouraging restful sleep, clearing away the cobwebs, and helping us to divine our deeper paths through life, Amethyst promotes deep transformation in our lives. When we make space within for peaceful courage, we are able to follow the map of our own making and to pursue the things that will serve us.
For those who struggle with the art of decision making, Amethyst can also help to harness the inner power needed to make choices that work for the individual. Life throws up all kinds of challenges and this can sometimes leave people in a state of freeze, unsure of which way to turn. Amethyst gently reminds the wearer that all is not lost and they have the inner sight, knowledge and wisdom they need to pick a path to walk down.
For those who tend to be a little hot-headed in arguments, Amethyst can also help to bring the wearer back down to a calm and collected state of mind. It’s a great stone for aiding in family and relationship dynamics as it supports a level head and comes from a place of love.
