This is probably the most famous crystal of them all & for good reason. Apart from its gorgeous aesthetics, the metaphysical properties of this stone are seriously impressive. It aligns your spinal column, purifies your energy field, has a sobering effect, opens your crown chakra revealing your spirituality, releases stress and guides you to where you need to be. The greatest effect of Amethyst is the positive adjustment of your attitude. It gets in your head and removes all that is stopping you from seeing the real you. This gorgeous being invokes the feeling that all is well in your world. Being clear headed - you make better decisions.
Your blood speaks. Have you had a DNA test done? If you are interested in exploring the mystery of your ancestors and particular contributing factors in why you do what you do, then get it done! Most systems ask for a saliva sample and you get the results back in a few weeks.
Over the past year I've felt an intense urge within to take a DNA test as information on my birth origins is a mystery to say the least. All I knew is that I was born in Brazil - that's it. So I found it thrilling when I found out that a very large percentage of my DNA stems from Mali, a mysterious country in West Africa. This told me not only was my bloodline relatively pure but traced to a specific location.
As I researched, psychic information come flooding in. I realized that vivid memories that I always thought were past lives - are actually the lives of my ancestors. Not knowing my birth family this was somewhat of a coming home for me. It was overwhelming in a good way, I just wanted to cry. I was shown by my soul that the recorded frequencies of everyone down my bloodline are within me. I got to see that my sensual mannerisms, bashful nature, wild dancing and whimsical outlook are part of a specific DNA Family evolving with a particular purpose.
There are several DNA families that we have all evolved from, I'm not sure of the actual number perhaps 12 or 14? Maybe more. Of course there has been much interbreeding over millennia and not many people around are descended from just one bloodline.
However you will have a particular dominance of a bloodline within you and perhaps this is something you can look into. If you are like me and enjoy exploring the crap out of everything then you will find this thrilling. Once I knew how to look, it was very easy for the memories of my ancestors to flood my consciousness. Ask your soul to reveal the stories that are in your blood, you will eventually see just how interconnected you are with many many people.
You may realize that your life is not entirely your own but rather another thread that adds to the flowing tapestry that is part of a greater story and connected to a larger picture. You may also realize that there is no real end to your bloodline for you would not exist. This is interconnection at the basest level. It represents the mystery of humanity.
So have you explored your origins? Did it invoke the same feelings of connection and 'home' that it did with me? Let me know :-)
The feeling of hope on the horizon. There is nothing like the first breath of optimism following a lengthy dark night of the soul experience.
This glimmer, this taste of possibility is deeply nurturing to a soul that's been shrouded in darkness for so long. A quenching thirst is being fed and you can't help but turn your attention to the good that the universe provides. Isn't it funny how a little light can turn things around? Much is said of negativity, the bad 'vibes' that people seem to spread and how dangerous and contaminating darkness is when emanated by individuals - but what of the light?
Do we ever stop and think about those positive emanations that we give off to each other? Do we realize the worth of our goodness? Do we even know what light is?
The true potential and understanding of the light is revealed when you have experienced true darkness. Only when you are cold with depression, bitter from pain and defeated by circumstance, can you appreciate the worth of a random smile. The kind that makes your insides warm and temporarily just for a moment - your pain disappears.
I'm sharing this observation because it is my current experience. As a long time mystic and astrologer I imagined that I had the answers to everything and that anything can be 'reasoned' away philosophically. The planets are doing this, and the planets are doing that. How utterly foolish.
To cut a long story short I now appreciate and can recognize the power of a genuine smile.
This is just the beginning - much more to come.
