Amethyst Meaning & Properties

Healing Properties of Amethyst

Top 3 Benefits of Amethyst

  1. Protects from negative energy
  2. Supports intuition and connection to Spirit
  3. Helps you transform negative patterns in your life

Amethyst for Spiritual Guidance

Amethyst may be the best known stone for crystal healing work, for good reason. It is a wonderful all-purpose stone for working with psychic and mental energy, because it supports intuition, Divine connection, and higher states of consciousness while simultaneously protecting you from negative energy as you open yourself up to receive information.

Amethyst for Shifting Negative Patterns

Amethyst supports mental clarity and balance, helping you make decisions with a clear head and in alignment with your intuition and higher guidance. Thus it can be used for support if you are working to shift negative patterns like addictions and bad habits or toxic attachments.

Amethyst supports you to identify and transform the root causes behind these patterns, integrate the lesson, and make responsible choices going forward.

Amethyst for Healing Anxiety

Amethyst can also help with anxiety and anger, helping you to see why you feel this way rather than become overwhelmed by the feelings themselves.

In general amethyst helps shift your orientation from ego-based concerns to spiritual ones, and your mood from cloudy or down to clear and bright. Amethyst is a great “sacred self-care” stone!

How to use Amethyst

Amethyst purifies energy in your auric field and environment, absorbing and clearing negative energy. This helps you receive clear spiritual guidance and wisdom without being distracted. This makes it an ideal stone to hold when meditating and to wear when engaging in any spiritual practice, especially if it involves communication with spiritual guides.

Amethyst is also a great stone to put in your environment to keep the space clear of negative energy.
