Numerical Vibration: 3
Amethyst is my favorite calming stone, one that I use for many reasons. It’s not only the stone for my zodiac sign, but also my numerical vibration. I have used amethyst for calming the minds of pregnant clients during pregnancy, helping with insomnia and overcoming fear. My first use for amethyst with a client was to aid in sleep and to calm her dreams. Placing a nice-sized, flat, round stone Amethyst on the forehead is great in treating a headache, too!
In working with my friend during her pregnancy, I used that stone to assist her in calming down, letting go of fears she had, and helping relax her while breathing through her physical tensions. In addition, I suggested that she place her raw amethyst near her bed to bring awareness to this time of day, to go to sleep and to encourage pleasant dreams once she got there.
Amethyst is also a great stone to place around the house to assist in cleansing the energy. It’s almost that time of year again – spring cleaning! I like to reserve enough time while scrubbing the house to open windows, smudge each room with sage and set an intention for our home. Amethyst helps to remove collected negativity and release a sense of calm in the air. In addition, I keep amethyst in my son’s room all the time to help him when he’s upset or needs to use his room to calm down.
Amethyst is one of the few “Traveler’s Stones” that I keep in the car, too, as it offers protection while on the road.
Possible Crystal Grid Intention: Calming
Great stones to grab for this Calming Grid are: Quartz Crystal, Citrine, Amethyst and Rose Quartz.
Quartz Crystal: The “Master Healer” is used a lot in grids, as they can be programmed to assist with any intention.
Amethyst: Known for its ability to relieve stress and anxiety.
Rose Quartz: This heart chakra stone is very soothing and calming. I feel like a lot of the anxiety I’ve worked with stems from emotional issues. So if we can reveal what is possibly troubling you with a relationship with someone else, or yourself, we can use those soothing vibrations to help let go and move on to a better peace of mind.
Citrine: The “Merchant Stone” is wonderful to bring in prosperity and abundance into your life. If the lack of funds is what is keeping you up at night, not only enjoy its presence in your grid, but also find a spot for a nugget in your purse or cash box.
