I haven’t worked with amethyst in years. Many moons ago I was gifted several of these stones by a person who held destructive inclinations against me. I didn’t realize her intent, and I gridded my office in them, as she suggested.

It wasn’t long before I became aware of her feelings of malice toward me and dismantled the grid and disposed of the stones. It put a tiny dent in my relationship with this gorgeous healing crystal. Not because of the crystal itself. But, rather, because of the unpleasant taste the whole situation left in my mouth.

Today, I am starting my 3 day journey with amethyst for the purposes of this post. It feels like it’s a fitting day, as just yesterday I was dealing with another woman who is fueled by the fires of jealousy where I’m concerned.

Jealousy really is a green-eyed monster. She has green eyes and a dark heart.

These are the thoughts that run through my head as I snatch up my stunning amethyst stone and begin my day. Let’s see where Lady Amethyst takes me with them. Shall we?


It’s been an odd, but peaceful, morning. I feel very settled. That’s nice.

I left the house to run some errands and the first four were unsuccessful. Things were closed when they shouldn’t be. Heck, I even stopped to visit a friend and found that she has gone to Florida for the winter.

After four strikes (not sure why I wasn’t out after three, LOL) the day started working out a little better.

The subject of finances keeps rising up in my mind. Particularly, surrounding the ridiculous number of times I’ve been taken advantage of in that realm since I moved here to northern Maine. It’s definitely time to tighten that up. Even more than I already have.


The theme of my thoughts, since I’ve been carrying this little beauty of a gemstone, seems to be money and justice. This is neither a good or a bad theme. It is just not really in line with my usual thought patterns.

Today went smoothly. Even though it felt quite burdensome to keep myself focused on the tasks at hand. I found my mind wondering. Often. I am more engrossed in my thought world.

As evening approached, I shifted my energy from engaging in physical activities to directing it toward mental ones. I felt it would be more beneficial, since I seemed to be naturally gravitating toward that path.

It worked out rather well. I spent some really relaxing down time reading, surfing the web, and contemplating (almost meditating) some things I have not paid enough attention to for some time. A reset of sorts, if you will.


Today found me feeling rather accomplished in several different arenas. Usually when I am feeling as though I’m on top of my game, I become uber motivated and spend my day getting more than the norm done.

But today I just wanted down time. It is much deserved to be sure. Way over due.

The unusual thing about it is that I was able to take that time, even though I am further behind right now than I like to be. My to-do list is pretty long. The house needs to be cleaned. The car is a mess. The yard is pretty shabby. And there are a bunch of things that need to be done to button up around here before winter comes.

And yet … none of it interfered with my ability to RELAX! Not one bit! I simply chose to check out of my responsibilities and enjoy my day. And it was game on!

It seems clear to me that amethyst is a beneficial stone to carry when you need to put some focus on finances, immerse yourself in creativity (much of my down time was spent this way), explore your thought world, or relax without guilt.

These are all things I often need. Perhaps, I will revive my relationship with this stone, even more than I have creating this post, in the near future 😉

As a person who has worked with alternative healing and spiritual modalities for decades, I recognize that some of the emotions, thoughts, and events which occurred while I carried my lovely piece of amethyst with me may not be related to her presence.

And still, I don’t discredit the sixth sense I have cultivated about these sorts of things either. And I put forth information which I really do attribute to the energetic frequency that this stone brought to my days.

My intent in approaching this post in this manner, as opposed to the usual style in which healing crystal property posts are written, was to offer something a bit different. More personal. Less general.

I hope this space inspires others to share their experience with healing stones. I think it would be beneficial for everyone to have more information about stones presented in this way available to them.

If you have experiences with healing stones, particularly amethyst, that you would be willing to share, please put them in the comments. I am very excited to hear them ❤ 😉 ❤

And … connect with me on facebook, instagram, and pinterest to stay abreast of any other happenings here at Bohemian Apothecarist.

As always, your presence is greatly appreciated. I adore that you are here. And I just know that we are going to have great fun together ❤
