Originating from the Greek word amethystos (meaning not drunk or without drunkeness), amethyst is very powerful because it gives you immediately the insight what it’s good for. Amethyst supports the crown chakra and also has a beautiful purple, violet light to it with an equally beautiful frequency. It helps to get rid of addictions and cleanses the blood. It has been used for many different things. For some people it’s a good dream stone, and helps one to sleep better. It promotes a lot of healthy sleep and is also very protective stone. It’s a healing stone that works with the clearing the crown chakra, sahasrara.
For example, why do you feel being addicted is important? Because you feel disconnected and you feel you have to do something, or use something, to connect yourself back. Amethyst clears the crown chakra and creates a creative connection or Source connection that makes you feel calm and comforted. Interestingly the Catholic Bishops wore this stone so that that they feel better protected, ultimately from addiction, but it also served as a symbol of purity and spiritual wisdom. Amethyst is a very powerful stone to activating Source Connection, the crown chakra.
