- Protects the mind from dark magic
For those who are looking to leap higher into their spiritual awakening, Amethyst is one of the most important stones in the healing pack. It is strongly associated with the crown chakraand is even said to bridge the gap between the physical and the spiritual realms.
The third eye chakra is known for being one of the most powerful intuitive tools to have in the pack. Everyone has the gift of intuition, it's all about how they harness it. As Amethyst kindles the third eye to awaken, it grants the sixth sense to bloom into being. In eastern philosophy, it is said that the third eye is the spiritual center of a person’s existence. It's also responsible for how people perceive reality and how open they are to opening the door and stepping out into spiritual enlightenment. The color associated with the third eye chakra is indigo which also links to the color of Amethyst. When the third eye chakra is blocked, people may struggle with feelings of depression and anxiety, and maybe feel the weight of cynicism heavy on their soul. By awakening the third eye, one can awaken intuition, let their inner wisdom flow, and invite the sparkle back to their imagination.
The crown chakra is the sacred energy center and also intricately connected with the Amethyst stone. Its where the cosmic consciousness sits and is where people receive those much-needed messages from the universe and the connection to the cosmos. When the crown chakras power is untapped or there is a block, people may feel alienated or disconnected from the world around them. They may feel their ego gets in the way too much. When the crown chakra is open and ready to receive, there is balance, wellbeing, deeper connection and a working confidence in one own’s wisdom.
