Amethyst is for relaxation and contemplation… and even for remembering past lives. Possibly the most valuable thing we can derive from exploring past life memories is that we can focus on issues that seem to keep recurring and change them if necessary. It can bring us healing that otherwise may be difficult because it can help us recognize behavioral traits that we can then remove from our habitual tendencies.
If you would like to begin to work with healing crystals, especially for the body, then amethyst is a good stone to start with.
