The Guardian of Amethyst explains...
Amethyst brings wisdom to one's life and aspects of being. The idea of wisdom and the wise is misunderstood deeply on Planet Earth. People have mixed knowledge of things gained through the power of the mind with wisdom which is solely based in the heart. To become or be wise one simply must make every action, no matter how small, based in the heart. This is in alignment with the true self and then one only puts forth and radiates the truth of being.
The energies of Amethyst helps the physical body/mind system to support the bringing forth of one's truth of being. It does this through opening or widening the crown chakra to allow energies of higher vibration and further expansion to enter, initiating transformation. Transformation is actually a process of removing the layers hindering your inner truth to be exposed. This looks different for all as life experiences and circumstances have molded and formed the layers. But what isn't different is the heart. The heart is the sounding board for all directing one to the truth in all matters. Everyone knows what is true if one slows down enough to listen to the heart.
Humanity is currently being pushed to evolve and transform into the innate wise beings they are. The present conditions on Earth have shown that the current trend of following mind based actions is not working. Amethyst initiates the changes needed and creates an easy path to create a heart-based expression. The disharmonies which exist in the world are simply from lack of truth of being and can be overcome as more show their true self.
Besides promoting what is known as spiritual ideals, Amethyst also has a nice effect on the brain. Its energies help the thinking process to be softened, more intuitive bringing a balanced perspective. It also brings quick relief from headaches through its crown chakra opening...just place on the head to relieve pressure. Amethyst is nourishing to the nervous system promoting circulation, both physic and etheric, and removing hindrances and blockages.
Overall, Amethyst harmonizes the aspects so one can easily express the inner truth in whatever form it takes.
