Amethyst Healing Properties

Amethyst has been revered for its calming properties. 

Many believe that Amethyst’s energy can be used to help soothe emotions of grief, loss, and sorrow. If you are experiencing those feelings, you might consider choosing an Amethyst spinner. 

Amethyst has also been known to promote tranquility and bring about feelings of calmness. For those who are particularly stressed or feel out of balance, Amethyst might help you with de-stressing. 

Amethyst is associated with:

  • Protection
  • Inspiration
  • Cleansing
  • Intuition
  • Calming

Those associations are what many believe Amethyst can heal to promote overall balance for your physical and emotional well-being. 

Amethyst is also aligned with the crown chakra. This means that if you feel like you are struggling to connect to your life’s purpose or feel like you’re lacking in spirituality, you might use Amethyst to realign the crown chakra. Amethyst also has alignment with the third eye chakra. This means if you’re looking for help with finding inspiration or getting in touch with your intuition, you might look to Amethyst to realign the third eye chakra.

Caring for Your Amethyst Crystal

Cleansing your crystal of negative energy is one of the most effective ways to care for it.

Cleansing your crystals is also an important first step to reaping the benefits from crystal healing. 

Once you receive your Amethyst spinner, you will want to cleanse it. Cleansing crystals removes any negative energy that might be present from the shipping and handling of the crystal. 

Amethyst is water-safe which means it can be cleansed with running water. You’ll want the water to be cold and to come from a natural water source, such as a stream. Bottled spring water or water from the tap can also be used.

Amethyst can also be cleansed by natural light. Getting light from both the sun and the moon is the best way to charge your crystal. 

After this first cleanse, you will want to engage in any of these methods with your Amethyst spinner if it appears cloudy or if you regularly feel like you are around negative energy.

Using Amethyst for Crystal Healing

When you get your Amethyst spinner, you will want to set a specific intention for it. 

When figuring out what this intention is, pay attention to what associations and healing properties it is believed to have. If a specific association or property stands out to you, consider focusing on that when phrasing your intention.

For Amethyst, you might consider setting an intention to help you maintain levels of calmness as you enter particularly stressful times. You could also set an intention to help you increase overall feelings of tranquility in your everyday life. 

Once you determine what that intention is, hold the spinner in your hand and speak that intention into it. When you wear the spinner keep that intention in mind and try to make choices that align with that intention. 

Most importantly, you will want to keep an open mind and heart when dealing with your Amethyst spinner. You will not notice any differences or feel like you're gaining anything from the Amethyst if you remain skeptical of it. Keeping an open mind changes your perspective on crystals and improves your mindset.
