VITALITY QI 水
The meaning of Amethyst is spiritual healing, calmness, and wisdom. Said to be the bridge that connects the concrete with the divine—Amethyst has always been synonymous with spirituality and is associated with both the third eye and the crown chakra. In eastern philosophy, it is said that the third eye is the spiritual center of a person’s existence. By awakening the third eye, one can awaken intuition and let their inner wisdom flow. Likewise, the crown chakra is where the cosmic consciousness sits and is we connect with the universe and cosmos.
Amethyst translates from Greek into ‘not intoxicated’ and comes from the ancient Greek word – Amethystos. Amethyst is therefore associated with crystal clear clarity, deep contemplation, and a sense of control over life.
