Stone of the Month for June – Amethyst
This months topic is Astral Wellness – part of the series called “Healing from the Outside In” from the Holistic Institute of Wellness.
I had to do some research on for ‘Astral’ wellness. All the usual sources were talking about Astral Projection which is a whole other ball of wax! My focus this month, actually every month really, is aimed at wellness & I looked up the dictionary definition to make sure I was not making a mash up of my understanding. “… noun: a healthy state of wellbeing free from disease.”
The Astral Body is an important layer in our Bio or Auric field. It’s associated with the Heart, Love, & Compassion. It’s the layer betwixt or between the upper spiritual & lower physical bodies.
But what does it mean to have ‘Astral Wellness?’ For me wholeness & connection feel like they are the key here. I can really feel the need for that in between connection to be free of dis-ease so that there is full contact & a solid link, leading to unity. If I can make/keep that, all of me will/can feel more balanced & whole. I’ve talked many times about the need for balance in the chakras, this feels similar & different.
This is where Amethyst comes in. Amethyst carries a very high vibration & for a stone often considered to be lowly on the totem pole of gems, it is a powerhouse. It fully deserves its position on that very misunderstood pole. Amethyst is strong for healing & cleansing, & so much more. At the same time boosting your spiritual awareness. It is one of the most spiritual of crystals, fostering love, cultivating selflessness, & spiritual wisdom. It can aid with transmuting “lower” energies into a higher frequency for the spiritual & etheric realms.
Judy Hall says: “At a subtle level, Amethyst balances and connects the physical, mental and emotional bodies, linking them to the spiritual.”
Amethyst comes in may shapes, sizes, styles, and hues:
