Amethyst helps you attain wisdom by reminding every aspect of your being of its
inherent spiritual nature. Amethyst is the gemstone bearer of the purple ray.
It can help you let go of all that is old and all that holds you back - on every
level and in every aspect of life - so that you may fully embrace your spiritual
When you wear a necklace of Amethyst spheres, it forms a column of energy that
extends from your physical body through all your inner aspects to Soul itself.
This column allows Amethyst energy to rise upward from your heart to your head
and beyond into the spiritual realms, bringing your attention with it. In the
process, Amethyst draws your attention through your inner aspects, increasing
your awareness and knowledge of them. Then, Amethyst and the purple ray bring
this wisdom back into clear, conscious thought. The longer you wear Amethyst,
the stronger and wider this column of energy becomes.
Amethyst's purple ray reflects the highest aspect of the mind, which is also
known as the intuition. It stirs the intuition. This stirring helps your mind
become aware of its own intuitive aspect and, ideally, of that which lies just
beyond it - Soul itself. When your mind becomes aware of its highest aspect,
the energy that the mind once fed its undesirable tendencies is redirected.
If Amethyst is worn long enough, these undesirable tendencies will begin to
Amethyst can also help you understand and let go of anything that keeps you
attached to a condition. When worn as a necklace of spheres, Amethyst affects
all your inner aspects, bringing the perspective needed to let go of
Amethyst promotes both inner and outer focus. By focusing your attention on a
higher, more spiritual state, Amethyst keeps you from falling prey to the many
distractions that impede spiritual growth. It also helps you see that all of
life is spiritual as it helps dissolve the duality between inner and outer
Amethyst awakens your consciousness to life's spirituality. It urges you on all
levels to look beyond yourself to the level of pure Spirit and the true Self.
Within Amethyst's blueprint is a memory of pure Spirit, where matter, energy,
space and time do not exist, and where there is no duality. This memory also lies
in your cells' blueprints. When Amethyst resonates with your cellular blueprints,
the memory of your cells' optimal state is awakened, and the call of Soul to
return to this higher awareness is rekindled.
When you wear Amethyst in a necklace that lies near your heart chakra, its energy
first connects with your emotions. It stimulates the area where emotions are
born and uplifts the area's consciousness. This upliftment provides a greater
perspective on your emotions and helps reduce or balance emotional extremes.
The balancing effect on the emotions is cumulative. Therefore, if you are easily
imbalanced by others, you should wear Amethyst continually to foster this
balance, so that this balance can grow and build.
When an Amethyst necklace falls near your throat, the purple ray tends to flow
directly to your head and mind, bypassing your emotions and increasing the amount
of energy flowing in through your throat chakra. This gives energy to your voice.
Therefore, if you must address a group but are afraid to speak, you will benefit
greatly from wearing Amethyst around your neck near your throat.
Wearing such a necklace will also benefit those who lack the self-confidence to
express themselves or who speak too quietly or with uncertainty.
Amethyst should never be worn in a necklace that reaches much below the heart
chakra. Necklaces of Amethyst that are too long will start to draw energy from
the rest of your body to your stomach area, thus diffusing the necklace's focus
and creating confusion.
AMETHYST AND GOLD Those who love to wear gold can wear it freely with Amethyst. Not only will the
two look beautiful together, but the Amethyst will provide an understanding and
supportive influence by helping lovers of gold understand why they cling to
certain attitudes, feelings, or conditions. This understanding is important,
because it will form the basis for them to take further steps in their
AMETHYST - THERAPEUTIC QUALITY
Amethyst occurs in a wide range from light to dark purple. Therapeutic Amethyst
falls somewhere in the middle of this range and resembles the vibrant purple
seen in a rainbow. As Amethyst moves away from this optimal color and becomes
darker or lighter, its therapeutic value diminishes. The lightest purple is not
the gemstone known as Lavender but only a washed-out Amethyst.
Clarity also plays a key role in Amethyst quality. Inclusions detract from its
ability to radiate its healing energy. A tiny amount of inclusions in a sphere
is acceptable. However, when evaluating Amethyst, be aware that inclusions
disrupt or block the sphere's ability to radiate its energy in direct proportion
to the inclusions' size and density. The exceptions are minor inclusions that
have a prismatic effect. When a sphere with these inclusions is moved in natural
light, the Amethyst expresses a rainbow or partial rainbow of colors. This
property is an asset. All other inclusions - especially cloudiness, dark flecks,
internal fractures, or pieces of the rock matrix in which the Amethyst grew -
inhibit the Amethyst's energy and should be avoided. Poor drill holes or any
damage to the sphere's surface, such as scratches, gouges, or chips, also render
To judge Amethyst quality accurately requires experience and the opportunity to
compare many Amethyst specimens of different grades and colors. Amethyst of ideal
color with no inclusions is extremely rare and difficult to obtain.
AMETHYST NECKLACE THERAPIES AND PROCEDURES:
An Amethyst necklace can be placed on any of six major chakras to treat a variety
of conditions or to promote awareness. Amethyst energy affects each chakra differently.
The following therapies and techniques offer seven ways to derive benefits from
Amethyst chakra treatments.
SACRAL CHAKRA - PRENATAL UPLIFTMENT
This technique uplifts the unborn child. It helps forge a stronger connection
between the fetus and the Soul that will enter the baby's body. When the baby
is born, this enhanced connection will cause the Soul to enter the body with
STOMACH CHAKRA - STOMACH THERAPY
The Amethyst vibrations draw to the stomach healing energies from other, stronger
areas of the body. This therapy is very helpful for soothing stomachaches, especially
HEART CHAKRA - INSIGHT INTO ATTACHMENTS
This technique can bring you insight and enhance your understanding of the reasons
you are attached to certain conditions or situations in your life.
THROAT CHAKRA - PUBLIC SPEAKING AND OTHER SPEECH SUPPORT
The Amethyst energy flowing through your throat chakra opens passageways for more life energy to enter your throat.
This strengthens your throat chakra and makes additional energy available to your voice.
BROW CHAKRA - SPIRITUAL DEVELOPMENT TECHNIQUE
This technique opens your brow chakra and strengthens the circuit of energy
that continually flows in through your throat and out your brow. When this flow
is strengthened, you become more aware of your inner aspects, which in turn spurs
your spiritual unfoldment.
BROW AND CROWN CHAKRAS - HEADACHE THERAPY
If your headache is caused by a build-up of excess energy in your head, this
therapy will open your brow and crown chakras and allow your head to discharge
its excess energy.
CROWN CHAKRA - MENTAL IMBALANCE THERAPY
Stagnant mental energy is a common cause of mental imbalances. This therapy helps
release stagnant mental energies by opening your brow chakra and encouraging a
flow of energy in through your throat and out through your brow. As long as your
brow remains open, energy will not be able to collect in your mind and stagnate
