Sahasrara is the Crown Chakra. This is our halo, also referred to as a nimbus or aureole, that is often seen in old religious paintings from Italy to Tibet. This Chakra is not located in the physical body but hovers just over the head. When it is blocked we may look for happiness outside of ourselves and then suffer as the outside world is beyond our control.
When Sahasrara is open we are able to see a bigger picture, to understand that we are beings beyond our physical body. Working on this Chakra will help you to feel free in any situation. Amethyst is a great stone for spiritual protection and purification. It stimulates the Crown Chakra and helps bring us to a higher state of awareness, thus benefiting meditation. It is the violet flame from the stories of St Germaine and is said to be the ninth stone in the breastplate of the high priest of Israel. This beautiful stone creates a force field of protection around the wearer.
