How to Use Amethyst

Using Amethyst to Awaken Intuition

This practice helps you access, trust, and strengthen your intuition. This allows you to access your inner wisdom, inner truth, and use that knowledge as a life guide.

  • Hold a piece of Amethyst in your Receiving (non-dominant) hand.
  • Close your eyes and start taking some slow, deep breathes and settle your awareness into your body.
  • Focus on how it feels within your body to be breathing. The inhale, the exhale, the sensation in your nostrils, and expansion on your lungs. For ten breaths, experience being within your body, in your inner world.
  • Say to yourself, “I know I am safe and protected. I invite a connection to my intuition.”
  • Repeat this invitation three more times.
  • Ask yourself, “What guidance does my intuition have for me today?”
  • Try to release the desire for your “thinking mind” to figure it out. Allow the guidance to arise from your inner wisdom and intuition.

Using Amethyst to Support Healthy Sleep

This practice is useful if you are seeking a more peaceful or restful sleep. It is helpful if you struggle to release thoughts when going to sleep or if you suffer from frequent nightmares.

  • Place a piece of Amethyst near your bed or in your pillow case, then lay down in bed to prepare for sleep.
  • Close your eyes and start taking some slow, deep breathes and settle your awareness into your body.
  • Focus on the feel of your breath for ten slow, deep breathes.
  • Say to yourself, “I invite a deep peaceful sleep.”
  • Imagine a protective bubble surrounding you in your bed. Know that this bubble will keep you protected and safe while you sleep.
  • Allow your thoughts to drift away on your exhale. If there is a situation that seems stuck in your mind continue to release it and exhale it away.
  • If you are upset, stressed, or worried about a situation, say to yourself, “I do not need to focus on this tonight. It can wait until morning.” Then release the situation out on your exhale.
  • Continue this cycle of releasing on your breath until your mind feels clear or you drift off to sleep.

Using Amethyst for Improving Meditation

Use this practice to start a meditation practice. You can also hold a piece of Amethyst as you perform specific meditation practices.

  • Hold the Amethyst in your Receiving hand.
  • Close your eyes and start taking some slow deep breaths. Allow your awareness to settle within your body.
  • Gently observe your breath as you inhale and exhale. Notice how your body expands as you inhale and relaxes down as you exhale. Watch this breathing for ten breaths.
  • If you find yourself thinking about something other than the experience of your breathing, gently draw your attention back to your breathing.
  • Observe the sensation of the breath as it enters and exits your esophagus. Watch this breathing experience for ten breaths.
  • Observe the sensation of the breath as it enters and exits your nostrils. Watch this breathing experience for ten breaths.
  • Repeat these three breathing observations for one or two more cycles.
  • The more you practice, the easier it will be to settle into meditation and to focus on your breathing for more cycles.
  • You can continue to add more breathing cycles or transition into a different meditation practice
