When I was 18 I started apprenticing and training with an energy healer and medical intuitive. I trained with her for many years and I became a Certified Reiki Master. One of the many things I learned during my training and certification process was how to use crystals for healing.
I know it can sound so hokey, and honestly, I am pretty terrified to write about this stuff. Working with energy and crystals is something I have done for 13 years, but I am still highly embarrassed by it and afraid of people judging me or calling me crazy for it. The Pope is not exactly a fan of it either, although I don’t get how herbs and acupuncture are OK, but crystals are not approved. Anyhoo, the older I get, the more confident I get in my healing abilities and knowledge of healing properties, and my desire to help other people overrides my fear of being embarrassed or judged. But still, this is uncomfortable for me. And for the record, I am the kind of healer, that prays before I work with clients and I ask the God, Jesus Christ and Holy Spirit work through me and use me as a vessel to do their healing work. I don’t for one second think that I have healing powers in and of myself. It’s all God’s work and I am just a vessel.
Crystals, like plants and herbs (all things from the earth made by God), have different healing properties to them.
Amethyst is used for the transmutation of negative energy and protection. I have a big amethyst rock by my front door and my back door to protect my home from any negative energy that may come into it from other people visiting, or from negative energy from other people attaching to my family’s energy bodies. I also have amethyst crystals under my bed and Penelope’s, along with a couple of others that help promote restful sleep.
Amethyst helps to bring calmness and clarity where there is anxiety and confusion. Wear Amethyst if you want to get in touch with your intuition, your feelings, or your values. Amethyst helps one learn of all things spiritual, mystic, and psychic.
If you use crystals in your home for healing or protection, remember you will need to clear your crystals every couple of months. I do this by burying my crystals in my garden for a couple of days. The earth will transmute any negative energy accumulating into the crystal. Then give them a good wash with warm water and they are ready to get back to work.

So do you think I am cray-cray? Or have you experienced the healing properties of amethyst yourself?
