I sensed that Amethyst helps with self-awakening or realising a certain self-awareness, to deepen the connection you have with yourself when your being is ready to find out more. When one consciously connects with Amethyst, the knowledge it relays may not always be presented in visions or words. Such wisdom may emerge as a sensation or a realisation which only you can decipher. This stone is also helpful in reconnecting your senses and abilities. It allows you to feel supported, understood, and uplifts your entire vibration to shield against low energy. If you wish to meditate with Amethyst, make sure you also have a grounding crystal around to anchor you to Earth. Amethyst governs the Crown chakra so one may feel floaty or giddy after meditation if not properly grounded. I would strongly suggest working with Amethyst only when you are feeling very stabilised internally and consciously present.
I enjoy holding a piece of Amethyst to my chest before I sleep or whenever I need to relieve stress. I take deep breaths until my body relaxes. It helps to ease the tension and soothe the random energy spikes. Amethyst helps to transmute and clean up “dirt and dust” in the heart and mind.
In terms of energy with correlation to the colour, I find the lighter tones are typically gentler and more of a motherly vibe, which is most helpful for with emotional related issues or for people who tend to require a softer approach in life. The darker tone tends to have a more masculine energy, which has a “stronger” vibe which is more focused on being more assertive and firm in decision making.

If you tend to have nightmares or constantly quarrel with your spouse, place an Amethyst in the room to soothe the environment. As every being is unique, some may be more receptive to energy than others. After all, Amethyst is an active stone and may boost mind activity and trigger dreams. Please trial and error for at least 3 days to observe any difference.
1) According to Greek mythology, Amethyst was a young virgin who had angered the Greek God Dionysus after he was drunk from red wine. When she approached Goddess Diana for help, she was transformed into a piece of white quartz. However, Dionysus’ glass of wine had overturned and spilled onto the white quartz, staining it purple to become Amethyst. (Credits: Jewels for Me)
2) The name Amethyst comes from the ancient Greek word amethustos, meaning sober. It was believed that if one drank from a glass made from Amethyst, it could prevent them from becoming excessively drunk and maintain a sober and serious mind. (Credits: Jewels for Me)
3) During the Middle Ages, Amethyst represented religious devotion and celibacy thus it was often worn by members of the Catholic Church clergy. (Credits: Jewels for Me)
