Calm | Gridding Starter Kit with Amethyst
"Crystals grids are an incredibly powerful energy tool to use when manifesting your desires, goals and intentions. You may be asking yourself, what is the difference between using individual stones versus a crystal grid? The power of a crystal grid comes from the union of energies created between the healing stones, sacred geometry and your intention. The combination of the power of crystals in a geometric pattern greatly strengthens your focused intention to manifest results much quicker."
This starter kit includes:
150g high quality quartz points for amplifying
5 x Double terminated Chevron Amethyst Points
1 x cotton bag
The name Amethyst translates in Greek to, “not drunken”. But before you write this one off as “not for you off due to your Friday night Pinot habit”, you should note that this potentially odd name comes from that time when angry Greek God Bacchus poured one out for his fallen homie, turning a clear crystal purple with the sweet nectar of the gods.
Those ancient philosophers could have been onto something with the belief that it could spare you from public drunkenness. Maybe its time Amethyst replaced a penis straw as the Hen’s Night must have…
Ancient angry gods and public intoxication notwithstanding, the February birthstone’s healing properties are plentiful. Its purifying energy is linked to cleansing the mind of negative thoughts and releasing addictive behaviours. It’s also helpful in making a clear connection between planes, making it excellent for meditation and lucid dreaming. Amethyst is used to open one’s channels to telepathy, past life regression, clairaudience and clairvoyance and communication with angels.
The Amethyst crystal is said to aid creative thinking and spiritual awareness. It is also a protective stone and thought to reduce nightmares. So, rather than watching “one more episode” on Netflix next time insomnia stripes, try placing amethyst stones underneath your pillow before you go to bed and give into the peace and calm this stunning stone can bring.
Using this Pantone Colour of the Year hued stone to decorate the home is a choice many make for its good looks alone. Aside from the fact that an amethyst in the family room can assist in familial bonding and in the office can bring intuition for making tough decisions and assist in stress-relief for long working days, its uplifting energy can really help tie a room together.
Clear Quartz is the most iconic member of the quartz family. It’s the Dom Perignon of the crystal world, it’s one of the earth’s most abundant minerals and it is often referred to as the “Universal Crystal” because of its many uses.
While the Quartz properties are many and varied, giving it a reputation as a master healer, it is especially helpful for helping control how we think about and perceive situations. Clear Quartz can help open up the mind and elevate negative perspectives to a more enlightened point of view. It can help expand consciousness and facilitate open communication. For those needing clarity of mind, Clear Quartz healing properties will eliminate energy blockages and allow energy to flow smoothly throughout the body.
Many (serious science people – not just jingly sandal wearing Byron hippies)
believe that the similarity in cellular composition of Clear Quartz with the human body and earth’s crust accounts for the interactive communication between gemstones like quartz and the human body.
This is no joke – Marcel Vogel, a scientist at IBM, has studied the connection between human and emotion and the molecular structure of crystals. He believes that the crystal’s cellular formation was susceptible to change depending on what he was thinking at the time. According to Vogel, the crystal reacts to your “program” and mirrors it in its own composition.
And it turns out that programming your Quartz is way f*cking easier than trying to program your Smart TV to record on iView. To program the Quartz with your intentions, hold it in the palm of your hand and focus on what you want to achieve. The crystal’s memory will download your intentions and help to manifest those goals through its ability to amplify in the same way it does in tech devices (or in this case, in a much easier way than it does in your supposedly Smart TV).
