As we approach the month of February, I am reminded of my birthstone, Amethyst. For centuries, amethysts have been thought to be an excellent remedial for many ailments. They may also be used for the healing of illnesses of the lungs and are believed to help detoxify the body to promote cleansing the pectoral region. Amethysts are valuable in treating the central nervous system as well as the brain. Not only will they alleviate a headache, but they will also help clear one’s thinking process, allowing one to process information more efficiently. It is believed to loosen blocks in the mind where mental functioning has become confused and undirected, and frees the way to clearer thinking.Amethysts are recommended to those who deal with stress a lot, such as people with an excessive work ethic who are unable to enjoy relaxation. Amethysts also help those who are prone to depression and an overall melancholy feeling. Many also believe that amethysts are useful for those working to transcend chemical dependence. The stones may work as talismans to provide inner strength when battling dependency. Amethyst is believed to target the pituitary gland, which directs the endocrine system, the pineal gland, where altered states of consciousness and psychic skills are thought to be triggered, and the entire cerebral cortex in the brain. It is therefore felt to be a tonic for headaches, mental illness, anxiety, concussions, and depression. It wards off guilt and self deception, curbs overindulgence, and bestows good judgment. It calms emotional storms and in situations of potential danger, it will come to your aid. It also lends courage and is a powerful amulet for travelers. Worn, it protects against thieves, harm, sickness, and danger.Amethyst is cleansing, both physically and psychologically. It promotes internal balance and harmony and brings stability to the individual. As I read this about my birthstone I cannot help but be grateful for such a powerful and thoughtful stone. My friend Jannik of Nialaya uses the most beautiful Amethyst in his handmade jewelry here in Los Angeles. Visiting his store ALWAYS lifts my mood, clarifies my thinking and provides me with an over-whelming sense of GOOD BEING !!
