The Amethyst is the stone of protection and spirituality. It has a high spiritual vibration that blocks negative energies and enhances higher states of consciousness, opening you up to other realities and spiritual insights. Mentally, this stone is extremely effective in balancing out the ebbs and flows of life, centering your emotions.
In essence, if you are looking for a universal crystal for protection and spiritual wisdom, the Amethyst is the perfect stone for you.
How to cleanse
The Amethyst, like most crystals, should be cleansed periodically.
My best recommendation for cleansing your crystals is to do so with smoke. This could be from sage, Palo Santo wood or incense sticks. Allow the smoke to engulf your crystal and visualize its energy being renewed. After cleansing it, set your intention for your crystal by holding it in your hands and speaking your affirmation into it, specifically related to your intuition and protection.
Traditionally, the Amethyst was worn to prevent drunkenness and support sobriety with any overindulgence and addiction.
It is also said that sleeping with an Amethyst enables out-of-body experiences and intuitive dreams.
