Some thoughts from previous releases: Staring into a Black Galaxy Amethyst is a hypnotic event: the blackness of each is a glimmering abyss. Each specimen creates a calm void, but not a cold one. A rare form of amethyst that is a relatively new discovery, there is little information available on their formation or their healing properties, but in my personal opinion, and how I have been working with them, is by accepting the soothing healing properties of amethyst themselves, and applying this to my Shadow Self. I feel a surrender when I am working with these, a wholeness and acceptance of my Shadow Self, the darker parts, those that I need to accept in order to heal.
Expanding on these thoughts: I have now had the time to sit with the various pieces of BGA that have traveled through my hands, and I now realize that I have actively, if albeit unconsciously or coincidentally (although I don’t believe in coincidence), have been in a deep path of shadow work. Much of it is a dark place, an ugly distortion of how I *want* to be, but I have been facing these places with a small bit of bravery these past seasons. There are shimmers in the void, sparks of silver light that are made brighter by the surrounding darkness, complimenting one another and unable to exist as brilliantly on their own. I firmly believe that the presence of these pieces has been a guide through this darkness, a star map of the parts left unexplored for fear of the dark.
