amethyst metaphysical properties
CROWN - the lilac crown chakra, situated at the top of the head, bridges the gap from this world to other dimensions. This is where heaven and earth meet and how psychic messages (which we are all able to receive) can come through. Many people keep amethyst close to the bed so that, at night, their dreams can be enhanced and charged with magic and their spirit guides can connect more readily. Positioned at the crown of the head, the crown chakra is also linked to headaches and other matters of the mind - dreams, sleep, night-time. It's a wonderful sleep stone and has some protective qualities too. Some people maintain that the metaphysical properties of amethyst crystals help to alleviate migraine*
*always speak to your doctor if you feel unwell; never rely on crystals.
CREATIVITY - again, due to this connection with the crown chakra and other realms, it has long been said that amethyst brings a flourish of creativity and inspiration back to you. Passion abounds with this stone close by. Amethyst meaning is all about tuning into your Higher Self and being inspired to create. Often, people will find themselves embarking on new adventures, starting new projects, jobs or relationships when they work with amethyst in meditation. Amethyst crystals ignite the home fires again, sparking the flow of creativity, which is why it's known as the writers' and artists' stone.
