What can an Amethyst Heart do for you?

A few days ago I used my creative flow to make a beautiful choker. It was a heart made of Amethyst. I was supposedly going to wear it at a friend’s birthday. It would go very well with my pink top and I was looking forward to it. On top of everything else, I had a splitting headache and wanted to get rid of it as soon as possible.

What can Amethyst do for you, though? First of all, you should know that the word comes from the Greek Amethystos, which means not drunk. In antiquity they rightly noticed that a piece of this crystal could clear your head, enhance your logic and clarify your thoughts. In Saudi Arabia, in some cases, they put it under their pillows in order to avoid nightmares.

An amethyst heart today could create a direct link with your spiritual self. It opens up the possibility of communication with the higher realms. For example, it could enhance your experience of the divine while you are praying. Or it would help you meditate more intensely and certainly more deeply.

In emotional terms, it would heal a grieving heart. If you are suffering from the loss of a loved one, a piece of amethyst will help you accept the situation and move one. Psychologically speaking, it may be used in a multitude of ways. Even though in Arabic countries people thought that amethyst prevented nightmares, the fact is that a piece of this stone under your pillow will make dreams more vivid. At the same time, it would help you achieve a deeper sleep. On the other hand, if you are wearing the choker while you are awake you will become more aware of your surroundings and the situations you are into. It will help you concentrate and control your actions in the most effective way.

Amethyst is most effective in combating pain. I have used it countless times to alleviate the discomfort of headaches, migraines, broken limbs, injuries and bruises. Since the choker is close to the throat chakra, you will also notice that it will help you with lung or respiratory diseases. Furthermore, it could be used to alleviate skin blemishes and IBS.

All you need is love!

This is how I call the the pink necklace I created this week. It is made of rose quartz beads, swarovski crystals and a sliver plated clasp. The day that I sat on my little desk by the window and brought the materials together I felt unloved. Unloved by the people around me, unloved by myself. Rose quartz became the perfect medium that would bring me what I wanted the most. The stone affects directly the heart chakra. It stimulates the circulation, it helps with palpitations and it enhances fertility. At an emotional level, it is considered to be the bubblebath of emotions. It promotes empathy and sensitivity, while it brings romance into the life of the one who wears it. It liberates people from daily worries and brings peace of mind. It is a gentle stone that comforts the heart in cases of sadness and grief. Also, healers use it in cases of “healing aggravation”. A couple of stones held by the patience bring balance and a general peaceful feeling.
