Hope is a desire accompanied by confident expectation. Having a sense of hope is the foundation for ongoing recovery from mental illness. Even the smallest belief that we can get better, as others have, can fuel the recovery process.
William Anthony, Director of the Boston Center for Psychiatric Rehabilitation seems to have developed the cornerstone definition of mental health recovery. Anthony (1993) identifies recovery as “a deeply personal, unique process of changing one’s attitudes, values, feelings, goals, skills and/or roles. It is a way of living a satisfying, hopeful, and contributing life even with limitations caused by the illness. Recovery involves the development of new meaning and purpose in one’s life as one grows beyond the catastrophic effects of mental illness."
AMETHYST GEMSTONE MEANING
Amethyst is a stone of the mind. It helps bring calmness and clarity where there is anxiety and confusion. It is very good for overworked, overstressed, and overwhelmed mental states because of its extreme calming mental effects. Amethyst is a stone of transformation symbolizing RECOVERY. As a stone of great healing and meditative powers, amethyst is a purifier and is said to promote energies of the mind, body and spirit. Amethyst comes from the Greek word amethusos; meaning not drunk.
ONYX GEMSTONE MEANING
Onyx is known to separate. It can help release negative emotions such as sorrow and grief. It is used to end unhappy or bothersome relationships. Onyx guards against negativity, fortifies self-confidence and responsibility, sharpens your senses and encourages a healthy egotism. Onyx jewelry is worn to defend against negativity. Black stones have protective energies in the sense that black is the absence of light, and therefore, can be used to create invisibility.
