Today Shandara, my amethyst crystal Dragon, came forward. Today’s meditation was rather disjointed and strange, so much so that I wasn’t sure whether to post it publicly or not. However, who am I to judge whether a Dragon’s message is worthy or not? And, it’s more likely my inability to connect and channel effectively that’s at fault here …sorry Shandara 😥 …I tried.
Amethyst is love and beauty — peace — breaking of addictions, of old ways — breaking of evil thoughts — a new world order. The virtues of Amethyst are needed today. The cold-hearted one will mellow. A fantasy world predicts reality as the Dragon’s eye stares from within the swirling chaos. Seething rage is quelled with love and beauty, leading to a healing, peaceful slumber. Love is all. We need light to show the dark and dark to contrast the light. Light cannot exist without dark and dark cannot exist without light — balance is the key. One cannot be seen without the other. All is mutable. Change is eternal. A blink of the eye and aeons pass unnoticed. Hope and beauty springs eternal — clichés out of nowhere. Dragons gone? No, not so! All is transient. Life will go on, maybe in another form. Adaptability reigns supreme. Strange words and thoughts — chaotic — this is not the time — rest — be at peace — awaken to a brighter day.

After thinking about it I realise the virtues or energies of Amethyst are desperately needed in the world at the moment — the aftermath of the 2016 US presidential election, with many people shocked and horrified at the outcome, plus riots, protests and unrest in many places — or any other time or place for that matter. So, I see this message from Shandara as one of hope and encouragement that we can overcome past issues and keep moving forward to create a brighter, more secure and loving future.
Here is some information about Amethyst from the Crystal Vaults website…
Purple Amethyst has been highly esteemed throughout the ages for its stunning beauty and legendary powers to stimulate, and soothe, the mind and emotions. Throughout history the special virtue of Amethyst has been that of preventing drunkenness and overindulgence …it has a sobering effect, not only for inebriation but in over-zealousness in passion. It imbues a sense of mental peace and quietude. Amethyst is a remarkable stone of spirituality and contentment, known for its metaphysical abilities to still the mind and inspire an enhanced meditative state. Its inherent high frequency purifies the aura of any negative energy or attachments, and creates a protective shield of Light around the body, allowing one to remain clear and centered while opening to spiritual direction. Amethyst stimulates the Third Eye, Crown and Etheric Chakras enhancing cognitive perception as well as accelerating the development of intuitive and psychic ability. It initiates wisdom and greater understanding, and is a stone of comfort for those grieving the loss of a loved one (or a loved way of life or any other great loss in life). It refines the thinking processes. It helps in the assimilation of new ideas, putting thought into action, and brings projects to fruition. It is a talisman of focus and success. It also helps one understand the reality of cause and effect in behavior, and assists in better decision making. Amethyst is an excellent stone for diplomats, negotiators and business people. It calms angry temperaments and gives a distinct advantage in situations where debating is required. It brings in spiritual insights coupled with intellectual reasoning and balance.
Yep, definitely needed right now! 😮
