For the month of July, we have chosen the beautiful Amethyst to be our crystal of the month.
Amethyst has been admired for many years for its stunning beauty, as well as its wonderful healing powers and its ability to soothe the mind and emotions. This stone is incredibly powerful and protective, so much so it is often used by metaphysicians, and was used in ancient times to help people recover from addictions.
Keep a piece of amethyst in your bedroom to help encourage a restful night’s sleep, and to protect you from any nightmares. Amethyst will be particularly useful in the bedroom if you are someone who suffers from insomnia.
If you have any addictive habits such as smoking or drinking, or even an addictive, unhealthy relationship, wear amethyst or carry a stone with you. The healing properties of amethyst can help you to beat these addictions.
If you like to meditate, try incorporating amethyst into your meditation routine, its powers will help your mind to relax, providing wonderful peaceful energy.
If you are looking to be a little more spiritually connected, amethyst can help you with this, too! This stone is known for its powers in developing a person’s intuition and psychic abilities. Amethyst will stimulate the Third Eye, Crown and Etheric Chakras, which allows your mind to remain clear and will help to lead you in a spiritual direction.
Amethyst is also the stone of St. Valentine. It is believed that St. Valentine wore an Amethyst ring engraved with an image of cupid. It is known as the “couple’s stone” and can encourage a deep connection in a relationship. Amethyst makes a great stone for an engagement or eternity ring for this reason!
If you work on a computer for long hours, keep amethyst nearby to help alleviate headaches and migraines associated with eyestrain.
Why not try an Amethyst stone this month? Not only will it look beautiful, but its healing powers might just surprise you!
