Amethyst Crystals are one of the most popular and easily available gemstones.

When I wrote about my top five crystals to help with psychic development, Amethyst was number one! And with good reason. They come in many forms and variations, Oh, and they’re pretty too!.

Amethyst Crystals For Psychic Development

This crystal is brilliant when you first start out in psychic development as it helps you to stay balanced and centred. They are good for energy work too and have a strong healing energy about them. Because amethyst has a calm and serene energy and because it helps to focus your thoughts, it’s excellent at assisting with meditation and encourages visualisation skills.

Amethyst is said to stimulate the third eye chakra and therefore enhances our natural intuition and psychic gifts. It’s great to wear as an amulet or to carry as a tumblestone when doing psychic development exercises.

If you wish to take things a step further pop a piece of amethyst under your pillow at night to encourage intuitive and precognitive dreams. You will have the double advantage that it also helps in the understanding of those dreams which can be the tricky part. Be aware though that amethyst can also encourage ‘out of body experiences‘, especially if you have a natural tendency to them.

Amethyst Crystals Help With Spiritual Wisdom And Insights

With a stone that encourages meditation, focus and visualisation there’s little wonder that it’s thought to be a significant help to those seeking spiritual wisdom and insight. Amethyst is, however, also said to encourage the combination of spirituality with common sense, helping us to give consideration to spiritual matters within the context of our everyday life and society. This encourages an integration of our spiritual side into all aspects of our lives which I think is a positive thing.

Amethyst Crystals Help Protect Against Psychic Attack

This lovely purple stone has many qualities which make it useful in all sorts of psychic protection applications. Firstly it helps to cleanse the aura and to balance and link all the different layers of our auras. Having a strong, clean energy around us helps us to ward off negative energies.

Amethyst has a way of changing negative harmful energies, whether they are from a person, electronic equipment or through geopathic stress into positive loving vibes. Combining this with its highly spiritual vibration makes it a powerful gemstone in guarding against psychic attack, auric vampires (those that leach our energies, whether they realise it or not), or simply people around us being a bit negative.

What Else Does Amethyst Do?

In addition to all these wonderful qualities,

  • it helps with emotional balance,
  • is cleansing
  • healing
  • helps us to overcome all sorts of addictions and blockages
  • can help us to deal with challenging events and situations
  • and find the energy to move on.

I love these crystals, and they looks great as jewellery too. Why not have a go with them and see how they could help you in your development.

Bright Blessings


P.S. A  fun fact for you: It’s said that amethyst was traditionally worn to prevent drunkenness – not that I’m suggesting you test that theory!
