Amethyst is a stone of spiritual protection and purification. It can be an aid to curbing overindulgence and giving up bad habits. It can be used to assist one in quitting smoking, drinking or drug use. It stimulates the crown chakra and is an aid to meditation, helping one to still one’s thoughts and move into higher states of consciousness. It can clear one’s energy field of negative influences and attachments, and can thereby facilitate the creation of an energetic ‘shield’ – a field of spiritual Light around the body that wards off the negativity in one’s environment.
Amethyst is an ideal stone for enhancement of one’s physical environment. Placing Amethyst clusters, geodes or crystals in one’s home, meditation room, car, etc. can bring the feeling that one is surrounded and protected by a ‘bubble of Light’.
