    Amethyst for Attaining Wisdom

    Excerpt from Gemisphere Therapeutic Gemstones
    by Michael Katz.


    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 destiny.

    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 dissolve.

    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 attachments.

    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 experience.

    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.

    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 evolution.

    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 Amethyst non-therapeutic.

    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.


    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.

    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 greater vitality.

    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 in children.

    This technique can bring you insight and enhance your understanding of the reasons you are attached to certain conditions or situations in your life.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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 there.

    Amethyst is used to help draw the body's healing energies to an ailing area that has previously been ignored. An Amethyst necklace is placed on the area to awaken the body and inner aspects to the area's condition and thereby facilitate its healing.

    Amethyst is used in conjunction with creative visualization to loosen the energetic knots and patterns that bind difficult circumstances to one's life.
