Amethyst Chakra and Balancing Energy

Amethyst resonates with and stimulates the Third Eye and Crown Chakras.

The third eye chakra is the centre of oversight, perception and wisdom necessary to understand existence beyond time and space. Our consciousness is located here, and we relate to ourselves through this chakra. Amethyst helps to balance our internal dialogue and provide awareness which allows us to see the healthy and vibrant people we really are. This will open us to new ideas, dreams, and visions, and can control the flow of energy within all the chakras.

The crown chakra is the energy centre within our bodies that is responsible for thought, awareness, wisdom, and our connection to the Divine. Located at the very top of the head, the crown chakra is our gateway to the expanded universe beyond our physical bodies. The crown chakra is associated with the colour violet and the pituitary gland within the brain. Amethyst crystals treat imbalances within the crown chakra. Their violet rays have the universal life force of magic, dreams, inspiration, and destiny. This chakra helps to regulate the energy of consciousness.
