Amethyst is an exceptional stone for overcoming addictions and sloughing off unwanted behaviors. Extremely calming, it opens a gateway for spiritual balance and access to memories of blissful Divine perfection. It stills the mind, incorporating a peaceful state of pragmatic mindfulness with higher dimensional learning. While Amethyst lifts us up, it also has the ability to bring on a gentle grounding effect so that a feeling of being balanced and present reigns.
Amethyst opens the Crown Chakra and creates a pathway for access to higher vibrations. It instills the ability to act responsibly and to honor the vibration of love for All That Is. Because of its serene nature, Amethyst encourages selflessness and helps one to release anger and fear. In meditation, it shows one the bigger picture and instills deep acceptance and understanding for the laws of the Universe.
