Amethyst is a variety of quartz that is violet in color. The word Amethyst is derived from a Greek root "amethystos", meaning 'not intoxicated', as the stone was once believed to prevent its owner from being intoxicated.
How can the stone be used to benefit you today?
Amethyst is a great stone for meditation. If peace and tranquility are difficult to maintain, if struggling with sobriety or simply lacking a sense of direction - take a few moments with amethyst to soothe those intoxicating worries away.
Jeremiah 29:11 is a great verse to meditate on with amethyst. Truth is, there is a known answer for every problem you may ever experience. Our ability to find rest, peace and solace in that truth is essential to our well-being. In this, we find delight as it also delights the one that created us. Our reception of peace is one that demonstrates our acceptance that despite those things beyond our personal knowing, we have chosen to take rest, trusting in and relying on the divinity of our Creator.
Sit with amethyst in hand or close to your heart. Breathe deeply in through your nose, envisioning peace and calm flowing throughout your body, washing over your organ, pulsing through your veins. Exhale slowly through your mouth any worries or fears that may enter your awareness, breathing them back out to your Creator for proper recycling. Repeat as many times as is beneficial. You may choose to stretch during this time as you become aware of areas in your body requesting peace. Honor these with love and admiration for your personal growth and development in the acceptance of peace.
Affirmation: I am at peace in my heart, mind and spirit, knowing it is well with my soul. Thank you to all that is for the gift of peace in all that is.
