No reason to not sleep with your amethyst but since it will likely be programmed in your mind now that it'll make you sick you may first want to sit with them during the day or evening. Hold them while you watch a movie etc. so you get over that thought. And if it doesn't go, just don't sleep with them. Not because they'll make you sick but because there's no need or reason to stress yourself out unnecessarily. So if the thought doesn't sit well with you, just don't do it. It's not a 'must' to sleep with a crystal.
And if you really do want something go for selenite.

And btw, the stories on obsidian are a bit exaggerated, at least I feel they are.
They don't do anything other than mirror your own worries and shadow, which for some can be too much, meaning they're not ready to face them, and thus not ready for obsidian. And it does not make you sick.

I never had obsidian, got an elongated alien skull of it in, previously guarded by a friend.
I was not afraid, just curious how I'd react to it, open and okay with whatever would happen.
Nothing. I slept with her the first night and kept doing so for months on end. Slept like a baby!!
I felt safe and protected and watched over while I was asleep. And that was exactly what I needed :)
She's been with me for some years then I let her move to another guardian. Never had a confrontational experience with it at all.

As for cleansing your amethyst... unless you are ill, stressed out, have a lot of conflict/negative energy in your home there's no need to cleanse it every few days at all. Usually once a week is okay, but feel. Often it is much less. It depends on what energies they have to transform and absorb.
So on you, your surroundings, other people in the house and so on.
I don't even clean mine once a year. But I got many crystals, they carry each other, created an energy field, I live alone so very little stress and conflict.
I do put crystals in the window with full moons, not all of them as I got too many. But generally speaking that's it. And I don't do the moon thing to cleanse, but the allow them to charge with the energies, to open and activate further if they choose to do so.

Anywho... Put them in water and see if there's bubbles on them. If so, leave them in it, refresh water regularly. If no bubbles, no need to cleanse.
I actually feel you should leave them be a bit more as opposed to fussing over them with cleansing all the time, but I could be wrong.


Thanks for your detailed response, I will try to sleep with amethyst again, this time I'll make sure to clean it since I live with family and it's a pretty toxic environment.

I hope you're feeling much better by now. I wanted to chime in and say that I ended up ill with a fever after sleeping with a new crystal once...apophyllite. I sleep with crystals all the time but usually stick with one out of three that I rotate depending how I feel. I have tried others to sleep with but I happened to have whacky dreams on those nights. I should mention I'm usually not that sensitive to crystal's energies but apparently I'm much more in tune in my sleep.

This could all be coincidence, and I'd say if you had slept with other crystals previously to compare your experiences to that with your amethyst then it might be likely it was something about the amethyst. You mentioned you hadn't cleaned it first and that could be a reason why. In general, amethyst is supposed to be a really soothing crystal and I've seen it recommended several times as a good one to sleep with or have in the bedroom but everyone is different.

In short, I'd say it's either a coincidence, or because you've never cleansed it before and who knows what energies it has picked up on its journey before it got to you, or...maybe it caused something to surface in you that needed to at this time.

thanks for your concern, I was feeling pretty okay the next day after the incident, it was my first time sleeping with a crystal, although i feel more uncomfy about it now I'm still willing to give it another try and see what kind of effects can crystals have on sleep

As for your question, remove the Amethyst and see what happens.
As for a fever, I suspect if a person gets 'upset' during such an experience,
I would not be surprise the body's temperature rise.
I figured it out why I saw Moldavite because I did see Moldavite, your Avatar!

Looking at it again, you are right. She really fooled me!

Sounds likely a coincidence that you came down with a bug the same time you tried the amethyst. Hopefully you've recovered now (not sure when you originally posted this) and would be worth trying a few more times just to make sure it isn't the crystal.
