Happy Wednesday! Since I took down my Facebook passion page, I decided to share some of my passions here on my blog.
I love rocks!
Since I can remember, I’ve been a collector. When we’d go on family vacations, I always came home with a pile of rocks, much to my parent’s dismay.
But for me, that love tripled shortly after Rick passed away.
After his death, and my decision to leave our home, I started the process of packing. Then about six months later, I moved into a new house and started the unpacking process.
I had (have) lots of Rick’s paintings. As I was deciding which ones I wanted to hang in my new house, I opened all of the boxes and pulled them out. Then as I made my choices and returned them to their packing boxes, there was one box that the painting wouldn’t fit back into. Puzzled, I turned the box upside down, and lo and behold, this fell out.
Now, keep in mind, I put every single item in each box (well, with the help of a bit of vodka and cranberry juice). But I swear I had never seen this Amethyst Crystal before the day it fell out of the box. So, I viewed it as a Spirit gift and wanted to learn everything I could about it.
Amethyst works as a natural tranquilizer, activates spiritual awareness, aids in sobriety, helps combat insomnia, boosts the immune system, enhances brain function, and guards against psychic attacks.
That’s the short version.
Amethysts are reported to open a person’s third eye. The third eye is considered to be a source of power and wisdom.
Crystal practitioners believe a person can use amethysts to enhance or sharpen spiritual visions and enlightenment. These are scientifically unproven claims.
Metaphysical crystal practitioners may also believe that amethyst geodes or crystals placed in your home will absorb negative energy and create an air of tranquility in the space. For that reason, Amethysts are often used to aid in the passing from this life into the next.
Plus, they claim that amethysts help block electromagnetic frequencies and “geopathic stress” that can foster negativity. This is said to occur when human-made objects disrupt the earth’s natural energy
If you’d like to try out the reported healing benefits of amethysts for yourself, here are a few ways you can incorporate them into your life:
- Carry a small amethyst crystal in your pocket or purse.
- Wear jewelry made from amethysts, such as a necklace, bracelet, or ring.
- Place amethyst crystals or geodes in your home.
Not only is Amethyst a beautiful stone, but carries some amazing properties. It was the beginning of a fun and never-ending journey of collecting in and learning about all kinds of gemstones and incorporating them into daily life.
I look forward to sharing others with you.
Do you have a gemstone you are drawn to? I’d love to hear from you.
