The power of amethyst stimulates and peacefully soothes the mind and emotions to bring calm, patience, and balance. This is February’s birthstone and the stone of Saint Valentine and faithful love. Amethyst helps with sobriety from addiction and compulsive behaviors and carries creative and spiritual energy, fire, and passion. Also, it helps by enhancing intuition and psychic protection by connecting earth with other planes and worlds. It is a great stone to facilitate meditation and dreams and has been known to help with headaches if you rub it across your forehead. This stone helps soothe and heal one from personal loss and grief and brings inner strength and emotional stability. In your home, if you place amethyst in the sunniest point, it heals negative emotions. In the moonlight, it brings a calming feeling.
