Amethyst is said to attract justice and protect against burglars and thieves. It also wards off danger and violent death. It is told that by transmuting evil energy into love, it guards against psychic attack. It is one of the few stones used specifically for males to assist in attracting females.

Amethyst increases the activity in the right brain, cuts through illusion, and helps to develop the psychic abilities. It strengthens and develops intuition, inspiration, healing, and channeling as well as raising thoughts and aspirations to a higher spiritual level. With meditation is strengthens/develops intuition, inspiration, spiritual healing and channeling as well as raising thoughts to a higher spiritual level developing a deeper connection for clairvoyance and clairaudience.  If used on the center of the brow during meditation if will bring you to a higher spiritual level to bring forth memories of past lives and world connections. Wearing Amethyst on the left wrist will heighten spiritual levels and assist in enabling one to foresee.

Store a small piece of amethyst with your divination tools (tarot cards, runes, etc.) to keep the power of the divination tools high as well as strengthening your intuitive powers while using your tools. Using an Amethyst pendulum will aid in personal decision making when using a yes/no table or response method.

Recharge Amethyst under the light of the moon rather than sunlight, as sunlight may fade the color of your stone.  A large unpolished piece of Amethyst (or geode, or a grouping of smaller pieces) will cleanse and restore energies to any other crystal you have used for healing, divination or protection.
