Amethyst | Brow/Third Eye and Throat Chakras

Different people experience different things with this crystal. These are simply MY experiences. Amethyst is mentally and intellectually stimulating; good for students! It promotes independence and allows you to think more clearly and rationally, while keeping you aware of your surroundings. Because of this, its an excellent stone to travel with. Even keep some in your car at all times. Amethyst also opens up your throat chakra, making it more easily for you to articulate your thoughts without fear of judgement. If you find romance/a lover distracting you from goals in life, amethyst is a good crystal to use to bring you back down to earth/balance your overactive heart chakra.

Unlike some crystals, don’t wear amethyst indefinitely. You can begin to feel irritable, and a bit too logical, finding it difficult to empathize with people or express yourself with tact. I’ve even experienced some anxiety that is alleviated as soon as I take mine off.

As someone who wants to study the human consciousness I found this very interesting.

Scott Routley was a “vegetable”. A car accident seriously injured both sides of his brain, and for 12 years, he was completely unresponsive.

Unable to speak or track people with his eyes, it seemed that Routley was unaware of his surroundings, and doctors assumed he was lost in limbo. They were wrong.

In 2012, Professor Adrian Owen decided to run tests on comatose patients like Scott Routley. Curious if some “vegetables” were actually conscious, Owen put Routley in an fMRI and told him to imagine walking through his home. Suddenly, the brain scan showed activity. Routley not only heard Owen, he was responding.

Next, the two worked out a code. Owen asked a series of “yes or no” questions, and if the answer was “yes,” Routley thought about walking around his house. If the answer was “no,” Routley thought about playing tennis.

These different actions showed activity different parts of the brain. Owen started off with easy questions like, “Is the sky blue?” However, they changed medical science when Owen asked, “Are you in pain?” and Routley answered, “No.” It was the first time a comatose patient with serious brain damage had let doctors know about his condition.

While Scott Routley is still trapped in his body, he finally has a way to reach out to the people around him. This finding has huge implications.
