Amethyst is a widely available and modesty priced crystal compared to many others. It is one of the more potent crystals with powerful healing properties.
You can feel an instant peace of mind when you are in the presence of this crystal, or when you hold it. It’s a crystal composed of vibrant purples and white colours, both high vibration associations.
Amethyst is from the quartz family. It can be found all over the world. And it widely used within the developed world.
The crystal possesses metaphysical properties. The main ones being calm, balance and peace with are brought about to those who have this in their aura or vicinity. The importance of calm in meditation make it ideal for using during your sessions.
As for healing, it’s a crystal known to help improve mental clarity and aid in sobriety. That’s only one healing. It is powerful in emotional, physical and spiritual healing as well. Emotional healing comes in the form of calm mind, more patience, better ability to sedate and transform your negative emotions into positive ones and even a better ability to feel mentally secure. In other words the crystal will help you feel like you are better, and it works as soon as you hold it.
Physically it works with the body to improve circulation. It can help heal physical ills inside us, by strengthening our adrenals and heart, and by increasing the immune systems effectiveness. It enhances our physical vitality. Amethyst works in healing the pancreas and spleen and aids in cleansing the lungs too. So if you are sick, unwell etc. it will help you recover quicker.
Stress relief that comes from this crystal aids physical and emotional healing along with its ability to detoxify the body, likely from the increased circulation that comes from using the crystal. It is a high vibration crystal so you might want to use a grounding stone along side amethyst.
In summary, the benefits are as follows:
enhancing the immune system
improving endocrine function
improving the skin’s appearance
promoting digestive health
I suspect that all of those benefits come from the increased circulation and improved stress. It is a powerful crystal that it able to transform the negative to positive.
Daisies grow in the flower bed
during the spring the sun beats them out
during the fall, they begin to wilt
winter is a blank skeletal stare
yet they are to come full circle
for the daisies were never there
Your hurt and hate
has been negated
and I have seen
a beam of light
that will destroy your negative plight
Now you can heal
begin to reveal
and to feel
strengthened through grace
empowered by God
a beautiful seedling
ready to yet again, grow from the soil.

With that random introduction I hope you are all well, sincerely. With time nowadays going slower – most likely due to it being beautiful autumn – I feel as if I can do more.
I am on some new medication to help with mental health. During this time in my life, I obviously need them. I was hesitant to mention this but why not? People struggle sometimes and you should not be afraid to talk about how you feel or your mental health! Good wellbeing is important to maintaining a positive mindset. Mindfulness and meditation can assist, as can healthy eating and exercise. Social interaction is important too. Allow your body and mind to heal any way you can. The downside is that I am slightly tired during the day – due to the sedating effects – although I take it at night.
My poem today is calledFresh Start. I hope it echoes my ambitions for the future. This year has gone by fast. We are already in October!

If you want to learn something new then consider using the internet! I say this as during the darker months keeping your mind active can make all the difference. I found some great sites to learn languages, for example; Lingoda and Pimsleur. Both offer language courses for a price each month.
Every day is a fresh start! Why not change every… single… day? Do something different every day. With the exception of some work which I would imagine involves some repetition. 😂😎
From the diet we eat to the lack of exercise we are always in an acidic body environment most of the time. If we want to improve out health we should try to reduce the acidic foods we consume and create a healthy diet for our bodies to heal. Healing takes time and so will change.
Start changing today to see results tomorrow.
It was said that an acidic body can be the sort of environment that can promote disease and illness.
There is a variety of healthy foods that can reduce your body acidic levels. This post on LiveStrong -https://www.livestrong.com/article/321217-foods-that-reduce-acidity-in-your-body/ – talks about alkaline and acidic foods. Remember that acid reflux is caused by too much acid and a weak esophagus (or a combination of things). The most obvious acid base foods are fried foods – but this does not mean you cannot eat fast food at all.
For example, you could simply have it less often, maybe a pizza once a month or something. In my opinion it is not a crime of the body to eat fast food, because we are human and we have one life so why not live it, eh? Of course that is not an excuse for you to go and stuff your body with it, because your body will get sick fast. Diabetes, high blood pressure, cancer and organ dysfunction are some outcomes of a poor diet and acidic body. Dr Axe also talks about these foods in more detail here: https://draxe.com/nutrition/acidic-foods/
But don’t forget that teas and coffees are also acidic, and some other daily dietary foods like dairy. Diet is the 1st line of defence against acidic bodies and the best thing to change to see results. Second to that we have other options available.
At the moment I am on prescription strength sodium bicarbonate capsules. This is a treatment for acid reflux among others. It is also an effective ph neutraliser. Exercise is usually a great method of keeping healthy and sweating will expel your toxins and help aid healing within the body.
If you suffer gastric issues; like reflux and general indigestion then don’t overdo it. Walking or swimming or light exercise might be best. In time your body will boost its effectiveness in ridding itself of toxins whilst increasing circulation, boosting mental health (important) and reducing the risk of chronic health conditions.
Stress needs to be addressed but this is more of a mental health and wellbeing issue than relating to acid base body. But being relaxed and having improved moods will enable you to feel more motivated to eat a healthy diet.
So, go out there and change your body for the better.
Chamomile and honey is a widely used drink today. In the past as far back as the ancient times, chamomile was used as a healing remedy, and so too honey. Monks advocated during the 8th-8th century C.E for the consumption of beverages that were non-alcoholic which meant they were coming in contact with the average person who felt the same way. It is said to be a sleep promoter, inducing relaxation. It tastes, okay.
I wouldn’t go as far as to say it has more benefits than lavender tea for example, because personally I found more help infusing honey with lavender. But the tea does have many benefits:
1) It can alleviate colds and sore throats
2) reduce headaches
3) aids stomach cramps
4) assists in managing gastrointestinal and IBS ailments
5) regulates blood flow
6) heals wounds faster
7) helps flu and cough symptoms
8) aids sleep disorders
9) regulate blood sugar levels
You can buy chamomile and honey as 1 tea. Or, you can buy chamomile tea and add honey. Whatever your choice, I recommend good quality brands and quality (preferable fresh and from actual bee owners) honey. I used to buy an occasional jar of honey from the local market, which was 10x better than store brands. It was great because they had so many flavours. I also don’t advocate for supermarket honey or things like runny honey. They are simply loaded with things. Usually the way the bees are kept makes a huge difference to the quality too. The variety I used to buy was acacia honey which was lovely. Fortnum and Mason do their own too. Manuka honey is supposedly touted for the many benefits too.
Enjoy your tea and divulge in some classical music! Thank you and have a wonderful day.
