Our crystal of the month, amethyst, was traditionally worn to prevent drunkenness. It still has a sobering effect and supports sobriety, overcoming addictions and blockages of all kinds.
Amethyst is a very spiritual crystal which opens intuition and enhances psychic gifts, particularly when placed on the third eye.
It is a good remedy for insomnia caused by an overactive mind. Be sure that you don't have any amethyst in the bedroom however, as it will cause some whacky dreams and leave you feeling unrested in the morning. Hold (or wear) this crystal for around 20 minutes whilst watching TV or reading before you go to bed.
It’s best to hold a pendulum with your receptive hand (your non-dominant hand, not the one that you write with). Rest your elbow on a table holding the top part of the pendulum chain with your fingers in a relaxed position.
The information you receive comes from your Higher Self and Spirit Helpers. Before you ask any questions, say “Please answer the following questions from my Higher Self” to ensure trustworthy answers.
Ask the pendulum to show you a “Yes”. The pendulum will move forward and backwards, sideways, clockwise or anti-clockwise. You now know the movement that means yes. Now ask the pendulum to show you a “No”. Generally, the pendulum will move in the opposite manner to yes, i.e. clockwise as opposed to anti-clockwise or sideways as opposed to forward and backwards.
Now you are ready to ask your questions. Don’t think the answer you want to hear, just let your mind go blank. Also, do not allow anyone else to use your pendulum. Enjoy and good luck!
