AMETHYST: AUGUST'S HEALING CRYSTAL
My crystal pick for August is Amethyst. As we close out Summer and reflect on this soul awakening year, let Amethyst guide you into a deeper understanding so that the second half of 2020 is extremely transformative. Amethyst is a healing crystal powerful for its use in spiritual awareness. It’s time for us to make peace with the past and transition into Fall with a new paradigm. “A paradigm is a standard, perspective, or set of ideas. A paradigm is a way of looking at something. When you change paradigms, you're changing how you think about something.” What will be your new paradigm?
With challenging times behind us and possibly more to come, we need a crystal to help us balance our mental state. Amethyst is perfect for this — it is known to bring inner peace and, most importantly, healing of body, mind, and soul. Collectively and individually, we have all suffered from some form of stress, which has in turn affected our mental health. Amethyst holds tranquilizing prowess, able to soothe irritability, balance mood, calm anger and fear, and alleviate sadness and grief. We are all grieving something, whether it’s the loss of employment, of a loved one, or even loss of expectations — this crystal will help you heal.
Maybe this pandemic has caused you to check out, numb, and turn to substances, food, or toxic behavior. Amethyst is powerful at helping addiction, with its strong healing and cleansing powers. It works at the core of your addictions, relieving stress, and encouraging tranquility. Or alternatively you were forced to quarantine in a toxic environment, Amethyst is natural tranquilizer - it blocks stress and negative environment energies. Amethyst has air and water elements, perfect for flowing to every part of your being, infusing you with an elevated sense of calm. And just like water, it will cleanse you of bad thoughts and make space for only those thoughts that are helpful towards a healthier future.
Associated with the third eye and crown chakra, Amethyst is the bridge that connects the physical with the Divine. On a physical level, Amethyst is also associated with healthy cell regeneration, encouraging soothing sleep and rest, and promoting hormonal balance. For those who struggle with a foggy head or migraines, then Amethyst can also help clear the mind and soothe the pain.
Hold Amethyst within the palms of your hand and to place it near your forehead. Amethyst will empower your brain to send healing signals through your body, to heal not only mental anguish but physical pain. You will feel a release of tension as you meditate with this stone, and your mental balance will feel restored. You deserve some peace during these challenging times.
Sending you peaceful, healing energy this month.
Beaming love and light,
