Amethyst Obelisk



Obelisks, like generators, raise energy. They have four sides, while generators have six. The obelisk was sacred to the ancient Egyptians, who created it in an effort to lift their pyramids into the sky and bring them closer to God. The Egyptians believed this shape stabilized and powerfully raised energy. Work with this offering to channel peace, protection, clearing, wellness, and for enhanced intuitive development.

An obelisk is a tall, four-sided, narrow tapering monument which ends in a pyramid-like shape or pyramidion at the top. Originally constructed by Ancient Egyptians and called tekhenu, the Greeks used the Greek term obeliskos to describe them, and this word passed into Latin and ultimately English.

Obelisks were placed at the entrances to sacred spaces to signal leaving behind the present time and stepping into a new and alternate dimension of reality. The obelisk is a beautiful structure that features sacred geometric shapes, most noticeably the cube or hexahedron at the base for a sturdy foundation and to represent the four directions and the pyramid at the top. The obelisk works like a fountain of energy, with energy flow beginning at the base and flowing upwards to and through the pyramid.

Amethyst forms in long, prismatic crystals in geodes or hollow rocks. These geodes form when there are cavities in volcanic rock. As the rock cools, the mineral-saturated water, gases and volcanic material distill and crystallize. When these crystals harden, they form amethyst. Although generally more of a deeper purple, the stone can also have a reddish-purple tinge, or a very pale purple tinge that fades into a lilac. Natural amethyst has been used for personal adornment for at least 2000 years, while synthetic version is far newer, and not as common.

Meditate with this Amethyst Obelisk to open your intuition and psychic awareness. Place it on your altar to raise the peaceful frequencies in your space. It also serves as a powerful centerpiece for your crystal grids. However you choose to work with yours, may it serve you well. And so it is.
