"amethustos", meaning sober. It was said that an amethyst could prevent the bearer from becoming excessively drunk. Amethyst is the official birthstone for February. Amethyst powers include: lucid dreams, healing, peace, love, spiritual upliftment, courage, psychism and happiness.
Tree of Life carries the meaning that we are related to the Cosmos - to our human family - our animal family - our earth family and our beyond-the-earth family. All of the Cosmos is inter-connected - DNA and chemicals link us and it is in this sameness that we find compassion and tolerance and it is in our differences that we should find wonder.
The Tree of Life meaning tells us that although we are rooted in the Earth plane, we are reaching for the Spiritual Realms. Here we are each alone... there we are one.
