The name Amethyst translates in Greek to, “not drunken”. But before you write this one off as “not for you” 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 it’s 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.
Amethyst 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 (2018) 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.
First up – WTF is a pendulum?
A Crystal Pendulum is an ancient tool for dowsing.
Okay sure, but what actually is it? Like how do I recognise one?
To look at – it’s a crystal shaped like a point, dangling at the end of a string, chain, or rope.
In more detail, a pendulum is a tool used for spiritual healing and inner growth. When you hold your pendulum it will swing back/forth/or in a circle, which is how you get your answers (patience – we will get to this!).
So what exactly is dowsing? And how do I use it to get answers?
There are plenty of methods to dowsing, but most include forging a connection to your pendulum and straight up asking it questions. The belief is that when working with a pendulum, you are really just asking questions of your higher self.
Use our step-by-step guide below to get your dowse on.
First thing’s first, cleanse your pendulum as soon as you get it. We always recommend cleansing any crystal when you first get your hands on it – you never know how many people have handled it or touched it, or what sort of bad juju they might have left lingering on your shiny new rock.
Sit down, feet on the ground and simply breathe with the intention of letting the stress float away. Alternatively, make it more of a ritual by lighting candles, putting on some Zen tunes, or diffusing essential oils. Whatever you do, make sure to relax. The point is to quiet your mind, so you’ll be able to forge that connection with your higher self.
Connect to the pendulum.
Hold the pendulum in your fist and let it absorb your energy. Take a look at it. Respect it. Connect with it.
Now that you’re grounded and ready to roll, you need to learn your body’s “yes” and “no” responses. To establish this, hold the pendulum 15-20cm above the palm of your hand and ask it some basic yes/no questions that you already know the answers to and see what the responses are.
Try something like “Am I __ years old?” “Is my name <<insert your name here>>?”
It may swing for yes, and circle for no - Take note of the responses.
Now that you know which direction means yes and which direction means no, it’s time to ask the real questions – remember the pendulum can only answer yes or no so your questions have to be in a yes/no format.
And that’s all there is to it.
What is intuitively chosen?
When you see the below bold sentence on a listing of ours, it means we have multiple of that stone and we will pick one that we feel is right for you. We call them intuitively chosen pieces because we use our intuition to choose a piece we feel is calling us for you - a piece that is absolutely meant to be yours. We are huge believers in the crystal chooses the owner, not the other way around.
