Amethyst is known for its high vibrational energy. It aids in calming the mind, increasing psychic abilities, and used for energetic protection of the aura. It is an amazing crystal to use in meditation as it can enhance your experience by keeping the mind calm and open to the knowledge of the universal divine consciousness. It is also great to place underneath your pillow or on a bed stand to help you sleep, due to its soothing and protective energy. Amethyst protects and purifies your auric field from lower vibrational energies and helps to cleanse your energy from attachments and negativity.
