As I struggle this week with anxiety, I find myself turning to my crystal healers. I love crystals and stones. At the moment celestite and Amethyst are the ones that I find myself being drawn to.

Amethyst is a great stone for keeping calm and healing anxiety. 

Aside from Quartz Crystal, Amethyst is one of the first crystals that I ever worked with and I think that it’s great for beginners. If you are just starting out on your crystal journey I definitely recommend you get a small chunk or a tumbled stone to play around with.

Amethyst is probably one of the most popular crystals today. It is a beautiful purple color and is very easy to recognize, as well as find, in shops. Amethyst is an extremely powerful, spiritual, and protective crystal. It is wonderful at blocking negative energy and promoting a peaceful environment. It’s also a great assistant at healing problems with addiction.

Amethyst balances highs and lows and promotes emotional wellness. It dispels anger, fear, and anxiety as well as alleviating sadness and grief. It will help you come to terms with grief and heartbreak as well, so if that’s something you are dealing with you should find an amethyst pendant to wear close to your heart.

Amethyst will also help you to have sweet dreams and relax you. If you suffer from nightmares or restless sleep you might try putting a tumbled stone in your pillowcase or on the headboard of your bed.

How I’m using Amethyst

I’ve been sleeping with a chunk of raw amethyst on the window sill right above my bed. So far the anxiety has been kept at bay when I’m falling asleep and through dream time.

I have my daily ritual of reading in bed before I go to sleep. If the book is not keeping my attention anxious thoughts begin to creep in. I take the amethyst, lay down, sit it on my heart, and take deep breaths while I repeat to myself “Everything is going to be okay.” Score one for positive thinking.

While taking a relaxing bath, which I do every day because it’s part of my self care routine, I sit tumbled amethyst around the edge of the tub to create even more relaxation.

I also carry tumbled stones in my pocket! As you can see I really love amethyst and I think it helps me to keep my grasp on sanity and not run around my room yanking my hair out.

Do you like amethyst? What’s your favorite stone?

    I love amethyst! It might be due to it being my birth stone and all. But I really love it.

    Amethyst is my one of my very favorite stones and my "back-up" birthstone.

    I have a big chunky amethyst candle holder. That I leave next to my bed. When I get stressed or upset, I like to hold her. In a few minutes I always feel better.

    Love amethyst! My favorites right now are selenite, and kyanite. I love the way they shine, and they make me feel connected to Great Mother even more intimately.

    I love obsidian. I have a necklace with a raw chunk of obsidian as the pendant – it's great for sucking negative energy and protecting you from it. It helps give me strength and to remain positive. Just remember to cleanse the stone regularly under running water to rid of all the negative energy trapped within it!
