In my 25 plus years of selling crystals and stones I’ve found that most people are familiar with the Gemstone Amethyst. Those lucky enough to be born in February can claim Amethyst as their birthstone.   amethystAmethyst has long been admired for its purple color and beautiful crystal formations. Amethyst is one of the most popular stones in the mineral kingdom. Amethyst is found in many places around the planet, most notably Brazil, Bolivia, Mexico, Africa, Canada, Russia and the USA.

My research showed me that not only is Amethyst a popular stone for our modern times, but it was also prized as far back as 25,000 BC where is was found in Europe and ancient Greece. Early Roman and Greek cultures were known to regard the energy properties of Amethyst as special.
The name Amethyst comes from the Greek word meaning “Not To Drunken”. The Greeks believed that Amethyst would prevent intoxication and this stone is still used today to help with addictions associated with alcohol and other intoxicants.

Amethyst, a stone for meditation:

Amethyst is widely known as a stone of Spirituality and Intuition. It can help us connect to our spiritual selves and hear our very own inner voice or higher guides. In my Crystal Healing sessions I often recommend it to those who want to develop a meditation practice. I keep several pieces of Amethyst on my meditation altar and find that it helps to calm my mind during meditation. It also works like a great motivator or reminder to practice meditation. There’s many day I just don’t have the time or the desire to meditate but when I see that beautiful purple stone I’m reminded of my intent and sit down, if even for a few minutes.
Amethyst to Open the 3rd Eye Chakra:

6ThirdEyeChakraSpray I add Amethyst along with Clear Quartz Crystal in my Chakra Balancing Spray for the 3rd eye Chakra to help clear & balance this Chakra.

The third eye chakra is located in the center of the forehead just above and behind the eyes. This center is associated with intuitive powers and insight. It is the place of psychic energy, telepathy, clairvoyance and channeling. The 3rd eye Chakra offers us the energy to awaken and to release our self-limiting ideas and beliefs. We can come to understand our divine purpose and reach for perfection through the 3rd Eye Chakra. The 3rd Eye Chakra encourages us to open to the spiritual aspects of ourselves and the gemstone Amethyst can assist us in doing this.

Amethyst for Spiritual Protection:
can be used to prevent psychic attacks and is known as a stone for spiritual protection. Amethyst is associated with the ascended master St. Germaine of the Violet Flame who is known to bring spiritual protection to those who evoke his name.  St. Germain is called upon to rid oneself of negative Karma and associations as he purifies us through the Violet Flame. Amethyst works similarly helping us to protect ourselves from negativity.  I’ve found Amethyst to be especially helpful for those who suffer from nightmares. Placing a piece of Amethyst under the pillow can help bring peaceful sleep. Children seem to be very receptive to the protective qualities of Amethyst.

Wearing Amethyst:
Because of Amethyst’s popularity it is easy to find it as jewelry. Wearing Amethyst can help you maintain a feeling of inner calm and connection to your intuition. It can help stimulate psychic abilities so it can be of benefit to those who offer intuitive readings or to energy healers. I love working with Amethyst in my jewelry designs and often use it with the Symbol OM. Om is also a reminder for me of my connection to my spiritual nature.  amethystClick here to view this Amethyst necklace with the OM symbol



How To Use Gemstones To Attract Love

January 24, 2018

Love and romance are such sought-after prizes that even tales of the gods of old featured them chasing after it, sometimes unsuccessfully. To be loved, people have started wars and gone to unimaginable lengths. These days, it’s not really practical to start a war to meet your future soulmate, but falling in love is just as hard as it has been throughout human history. Dating is a grind, and various methods of meeting new people sometimes yield nothing. Surrounding each of us is energy that comes from our thoughts, our moods, and actions. This energy surrounds everything – energy moves the air around us, holds molecular structures together in solid formations, and even gets emitted in our behavior toward others. To align your own energy with that which attracts love to you requires surrounding yourself with the right sort of energy, and this is where gemstones come in. Gemstones carry […]

Dumortierite, what took me so long to discover you?

January 8, 2018

They say the teacher will appear when the student is ready. Well, that’s how I feel about this stone Dumortierite. Dumortierite just recently came into my awareness. It’s not that I didn’t know about this lovely blue stone. I’ve seen it many times at the gem shows I’ve attended over the past 20 years. So what made this year’s buying trip different? It was the Dumortierite included inside quartz crystal that caught my attention. I’ve always enjoyed the vibration of minerals that are contained within quartz. The Quartz accentuates the vibration of the mineral it grows with, creating a higher vibration. These powerful Dumortierite Included stones come from Brazil and are a much rarer form of this stone. Dumortierite can vary in color from deep indigo blue to a light blue almost like a washed out pair of blue jeans. So what is this stone teaching me at this time? […]

Balance your Chakras with Gemstones

January 3, 2018

Many of us love the way a gemstone looks or how the color of the stone makes us feel, and a great piece of jewelry can make an outfit! However, some believe gemstones also have healing energies, and that each stone may be associated with a certain area of the body. To use gemstones for their energies, however, means learning about each gemstone. Amethyst is known for calming, rose quartz is associated with love or the heart and aquamarine also calms and is linked to the throat. Be aware, though, that the association of gemstones with energies or alleged healing powers isn’t backed or proven by science or medical doctors. But if you love gemstones and crystals, have fun with them. There are many different crystals and gemstones that can be utilized and worn. Some individuals carry a gemstone for their perceived energies…and gemstones also can be carved into touchstones. […]

Peridot for Well Being- Birthstone For August

July 25, 2017

I love Peridot.  Maybe because it is my birthstone. Peridot is the birthstone for August.  But I didn’t always love it.  I can remember as a kid getting the yellow green stone for my birthday and wishing my birthstone was more exciting, like maybe the rich color of purple Amethyst or bright shiny Diamond.  It wasn’t until I was much older that my appreciation  for Peridot took hold.  Once I discovered its subtle energies I was won over. Peridot is often used in crystal healing and there are many good reasons why. Peridot has a long history of uses.  The Egyptians made Peridot beads  2,500 years ago.  It was also used to make rings and other jewelry. In Greece and Rome Peridot is considered a stone of royalty.  Since ancient times Peridot was viewed as a symbol of the sun. Sometimes it was worn as a protection stone.  Peridot was believed to bring wealth to […]

Crystal Healing for the Home: How To Build your Temple by Guest Blogger Brandy Gray

July 17, 2017

A family is made up of a group of people who equally participate in creating the dynamics of their own functioning system, each funneling their individual energy or resonance of their beingness into one channel or reservoir. Optimally creating a level of harmony so that the whole feels fulfilled and complete. This is also how a family, or community of crystals may work together as a crystal-energy-elixir. By synergistically working together, crystals can harmonize, stabilize and strengthen the flow of energy throughout the home. I create patterns and crystal energy grids utilizing many types of healing crystals depending on our family’s needs. I often rotate the setting or placement of these energy grids from the kitchen, living room, bedrooms and even the outdoor garden sanctuary space. I am also inspired to place individual crystals around different areas of our home because each stone or combination of stones offers something valuable […]

The healing vibration of Selenite

May 19, 2017

Selenite has become one of my favorite healing stones. I almost always use it in my Crystal Reiki Sessions as it can clear blocked energy making it very helpful for opening blocked chakras and cleansing the Aura. Its gift is that it can “melt” away negativity and blockages on all levels, from physical, emotional, mental or spiritual. A very useful tool for any energy healer or Reiki practioner Physical: Place a piece of Selenite on any area of the body that needs healing and visualize the stone melting away the energy blockage, pain or tension. Emotional: Hold a piece of Selenite, take 3 deep breaths. With each outbreath allow your energy to settle into a more relaxed space. It is especially helpful to the nervous system.
