Amethyst is a stone of spirituality. It facilitates transmutation of lower energies into higher frequencies of both spiritual and ethereal levels. It is representative of the principles of complete metamorphosis. It balances the energies of the intellectual, emotional, and physical bodies and provides a clear connection between the earth plane and the other worlds. It clears the aura and stabilizes and transmutes any dysfunctional energy located within ones body. amethyst also bestows stability, strength, invigoration, and peace; the peace being the perfect peace which was present prior to birth. From the metaphysical point of view, geodes are wonderful for family harmony and the home. They are good for stimulating creativity and harmony. Large geodes placed in home corners help to stimulate chi flow in that area. Placing a crystal inside a geode helps to cleanse and recharge it at the same time; think of geodes as power generators comprising the sum total of ALL the little crystals it contains! On another level, geodes actually represent the divine feminine aspect. The cavity within the geode may be taken to symbolize the womb. These qualities are in addition to the individual properties of the crystals on the lining surface, as well as the mineral comprising the banding beneath. This means an amethyst geode, for example, will exhibit the amplified metaphysical properties of its amethyst crystals as well as the properties of the agate underlying them. Placing a small amethyst geode near your bedside table may well be the sleep panacea you have been searching for.
