Fun With Crystals
I feel Amethyst is to crystals what Lavender is to aromatherapy – if you could only have one to take to a desert island, it’d be my choice.
Amethyst is a powerful healer and deeply spiritual stone that resonates with your Crown Chakra.
Ancient Greeks believed wearing Amethyst would bless you with happiness and unending love and affection. It helps you focus, aiding in meditation, and clears the energy in your home, bringing harmony to all who enter.
Amethyst promotes restful sleep; if you suffer from nightmares or insomnia, try placing one under your pillow. Or make a dream pillow by filling a small cloth bag with amethyst chips and lavender flowers and tuck it into your pillowcase. Smells dreamy!
It’s said to promote sobriety and protect you against poison, which brings me to this fun, easy way to incorporate the power and beauty of crystals into your life – through your drinking water!
If you, like me, haven’t made the switch to metal water bottles because you don’t like the taste, but are concerned about toxins that may be leeching into your water from the plastic bottles, I have a simple solution!
This neat trick will counteract any toxins, as well as powering up your water with the crystal of your choice. It will also make your bottle easy to identify – no more wondering if you’re drinking from someone else’s! Simply place crystal bracelets on your bottle. Start with an Amethyst bracelet to purify the water, then add any other crystal bracelet that appeals to you — such as Rose Quartz to create more love, or Citrine for abundance.
Want to amp-up your feelings of gratitude? In her latest book The Magic, Rhonda Byrne recommends choosing a stone to use as a gratitude rock – hold it at the end of each day and think about the best thing that happened that day. I love this idea – what a great way to use a crystal! My gratitude rock is a beautiful uplifting Carnelian, but anyone that resonates with you will do the trick!
I’ve also created this quick video on Amethyst – I hope this article has inspired you to put Amethyst magic to work for you!
