Expressing Yourself with the Help of Crystals

Artistic expression is the expression of your creativity onto paper and out loud to the world. It is your muse, your creativity, the communication of your craft. Sometimes every day trials and tribulations can block your creative flow or artistic expression.

You can feel and see the things you want to create in your head but you just can’t seem to get them out. If this sounds like a problem you have been having, do not despair, crystals can help unblock that obstacle and get your artistic expression flowing once more!

Amethyst Crystals for Artistic Expression

The bright creative hue in amethyst can help bring out your artistic side! Amethyst is the red-violet ray that connects both time and color. It leads from the old year to the new and connects the red end of the visible spectrum to the violet at the other end of our perception. This potent, powerful color brings things together, wraps them around, and solidifies them. It connects beginnings to ends, joins life to new life, and makes the great circle of life complete once again. It captures the dying rays of the sun, and sends the message that winter is arriving.

The color ray amethyst combines the fiery passion of the red ray tempered with the intuition of the violet ray. In doing so, it helps us see with both our emotions and our logic. Amethyst rays are particularly helpful in artistic endeavors in which new, original results need to be created using the tools and methods of previous times. Amethyst-colored crystals include the Artist’s Stone, the Composer’s Stone, the Inventor’s Stone, the Poet’s Stone, and the Painter’s Stone. They bring the natural power of creativity to us. They help us visualize, create, and invent. They stimulate our creativity.


Rwandan Amethyst Crystal-208279Purple Amethyst has been highly esteemed throughout the ages for its stunning beauty and legendary powers to stimulate, and soothe, the mind and emotions. In today’s world, Amethyst is still 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’s ability to expand the higher mind also enhances one’s creativity and passion. It strengthens the imagination and intuition, and 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.

Amethyst is one of the best crystals for meditation. The amethyst color stimulates the highest vibration of the Third Eye, and placing an Amethyst stone directly over this area ushers in a serene meditative state.


Kunzite Crystal (Extra Small)-206284Kunzite is conducive to a deep and centered meditative state, stimulating intuition and creativity while dispelling troubled or un-focused energy. It is particularly helpful to those who find it hard to enter into meditation. Holding the crystal in a vertical position aligns the chakras, balancing the energy centers and connecting them sequentially.

Kunzite is a powerful healer of the emotional body, particularly for those who have closed themselves off from life, or from others, to protect themselves emotionally. Its high vibrational energy encourages letting go of fears and sorrows that hold the heart to the past or the anxiety of the future, and inspires being present in the perfection of the moment.

Kunzite, with its loving pink energy, activates the Heart Chakra and aligns it with the light violet energy of the mind, the Crown Chakra.

What Other Crystal Authors Recommend

Naisha Ahsian suggests Iolite which helps calm the too active mind.

"Iolite is a stone of visionary art and the creative expression of spiritual ideas and ideals through writing, song, movement, and other artistic endeavors."

Artistic expression is our gift to the world and ourselves. Our artistic abilities and ways to express ourselves can be healing and soothing. Too often times we can find ourselves blocked off from our muse, our inspiration, our artistic expression. If you find this to be an issue we suggest the artist’s color, amethyst. Amethyst brings you inspiration, vision, and originality.

We suggest using such amethyst colored crystals to help your artistic expression as Amethyst and Kunzite. You can also try crystals other authors have recommended such as Celestite and Iolite.
