Amber is One of the World’s Oldest Treasures

Amber is one of the world’s oldest treasures.   It is as popular today Amber as it was in ancient cultures and was utilized as far back as the Stone Age for its pleasing warmth of color, value in adornment, and its magical and medicinal properties.

Amber belongs to a small class of organic gems, neither a crystal or a mineral, but a biological product of nature.  It is a protective resin that oozed from living prehistoric trees and fossilized over millions of years.  It is prized for its energetic and healing properties and the powerful Life Force it carries.  Other organic gems include pearl, coral and ivory.

Amber holds a strong connection to the sun and the earth as well as once living insects, plants, and organisms that are forever preserved in its golden structure.

Amber is a natural purifier.  It is esteemed for its ability to draw pain and disease from the physical body as well as the mind and spirit, by absorbing negative energies and stimulating the body’s own ability to heal itself.  It cleanses and reactivates the chakras particularly the Sacral and Solar Plexus.  It emits a bright, soothing energy conducive to health and wellbeing, and provides a protective shield against negative energies.

AmberFrom the earliest discoveries of Amber thousands of years ago it became one of the first exports from the Baltic region.  Prehistoric trade routes were defined by the Amber trade and the inland corridor from coastal areas of the North and Baltic Seas down to the Mediterranean Sea became known as the Amber Road.

AmberTrue Amber of lapidary quality come mainly from the Baltic regions, primarily from Russia, Poland and Lithuania, with small amounts coming from Mexico, Dominican Republic, Burma and Indonesia.  It has a hardness of 2 to 2.5 and comes in colors ranging from whitish and pale yellow, to honey yellow/orange/brown hues,  to a deep brown.  Colors like red or green are rare and most on the market are heat or pressure treated.  Black Amber is not fully fossilized resin and is  really Jet, a form of lignite coal.

Amber is an excellent rubbing stone for dispelling negative moods, relieving anxiety or deflecting energy from others.  Carry it in your pocket or wear it in jewelry.

Since the time of Hippocrates in ancient Greece, Amber and its resinous extracts have been used to alleviate  a variety of health ailments.  It is excellent for relieving stress and depression, and increasing overall vitality and energy levels.  It can stimulate sluggish digestion and is beneficial in treatments for the kidney, spleen, liver and gall bladder, and disorders of the throat.

Bringing balance and stability to ones life, Amber encourages patience and flexibility.  Its warm energy promotes cheerfulness and trust and strengthens self confidence.  It enhances the understanding of messages from the past to aid in decision making and moving forward in life.

Use Amber in meditation when you want to connect to the earth’s wisdom of an earlier age.  It is a great tool for past life exploration, clearing family patterns, or cleansing karmic debris from your energy field.

AmberAmber associates with the color energies of Gold.  Gold color rays bring success, enthusiasm, happiness and power.  It’s the color of kings, riches and the sun.  Light Gold rays provide us with a cheerfulness and contentment while dark Gold provides a deeper more pronounced sense of devotion and commitment.

Amber is fossilized with its Life Force energies intact and is an excellent source of Light energy for the physical body and a tangible support for energetic healing.  It can assist you in connecting with interdimentional and intergalactic Light beings including Nature devas and fairies, and those who are on earth to help mankind through the coming shift.

Although Amber endured millions of years of intense heat, pressure and weathering, it is still very sensitive to acid, gasoline, caustic solutions, alcohol and perfume.  It Is easily scratched and should only be wiped using a soft cloth.



Spring Cleaning Gemstones for Transmuting Energy

It’s Spring! Hurray!! We are emerging from layers of ice and snow ready for renewal, creation and rebirth which means releasing and transmuting of old stuck energies that no longer serve us.  This can be challenging.  I have some gemstones that will help transmute energy that I think you will want to add to your collection.Stones for transmuting our energy

First off, what is “transmutation”?  The definition of “transmutation” is “to change from one nature, substance or form to another”. This is exactly what we want to do in the Spring.  Dust off our stagnant dark energy and become like a beautiful new butterfly.  Shining and sparkling in the sun because we are reborn with renewed energy.

There are 3 gemstones for transmutation that I will recommend.  The first Gemstones for transmuting energyis Gold Sheen Obsidian. This stone works on “dark shadows”.  We all have shadows.  They are a collective that represents our darker tendencies, patterns or behaviors.  Gold Sheen Obsidian creates a protective barrier that deflects negativity.  It helps us uncover our hidden skills while removing blockages to our growth.  By stimulating our Solar Plexus Chakra it will help us reclaim our personal power.

The next stone is Mahogany Obsidian.  This is a stone for warriors.  It Gemstones for transmuting energycarries strong energy yet is a gentle grounding stone.  It supports the warrior or warrioress into battle enabling us to face life’s challenges with strength and courage.  We can align with Divine Will to become co-creators with the Universe to manifest our highest good.

Last but certainly not least is Bronzite, the Gemstones for transmutin energystone of focused action and courtesy.  Bronzite helps us with uncertainty, allowing us to think ahead and take control of our life.  Because it dispels uncertainty we can take the necessary actions for our own benefit while, at the same time, being loving and principled in our behavior.  Bronzite promotes change in a harmonious way.

These 3 gemstones for transmuting energy make a powerful Spring “cocktail” to help us emerge from our cocoon feeling reborn, shedding our old limiting skin and awaking to our new powerful energy.  Meditate on each one separately or use them in a crystal grid or place them in your sacred space alter to promote your transmuting energy.


Gemstone of Prosperity – Goldstone will Boost the Glow of Your Life Force

GoldstoneGoldstone will assist you in attaining your goals while keeping your emotions calm and stable and boosting your personal energy field.  Because it contains copper it will also attract abundance and creativity.

Is Goldstone a natural gemstone?  No.  History says that it was created by accident when a monk spilled some copper shavings into a pot of molten glass.  Some people still refer to it as “monks gold”.  It was highly praised by the Chinese who named it Jinxing Boli which loosely translated means “gold star glass”.

Goldstone is created through a man-made process rather than in Mother Earth’s kitchen, however natural crystals and minerals are used in the recipe.  Ground quartz is mixed with other minerals and heated to a liquid and crafted with metallic copper shavings.  This is an over-simplification of the process.  It takes very specific conditions for it to form properly that I won’t delve into at this time.

It is a great metaphor for the process of financial alchemy, or the process of manifesting wealth.  The process of taking lesser elements and changing them into an element of value is much the same as the process we go through when we set our intention to change lack into prosperity.

Goldstone is a beautiful stone for jewelry, it is mostly seen in the Goldstonegold/brown color but is also created in deep blue and green, and always with the copper flecks.

Use Goldstone in your prosperity rituals and when creating sacred space to remind you of your inner and outer wealth.  Wearing this beautiful rich looking stone encourages you to feel energized and prosperous which helps attract prosperity.

It is thought that Goldstone will boost the glow of your Life Force, strengthen your Chi.  With the help of the copper, as an added benefit, it will strengthen your bones and help circulation which will ease the pain from arthritis and reduce inflation.





Sacred Crystals Clear Energy Fields

Areas in your home and/or personal space have energy fields.  Sacred Sacred crystalscrystals will disperse negative energy “clearing the air” so to speak.  Most people feel a “lightening” of their personal energy field when entering a room with sacred crystals present.

Some sacred crystals that discharge a higher vibration can disperse negative energy and keep it from returning. It also works on negative feelings and thoughts attached to us. Black tourmaline would be a very good choice for this purpose.  Putting it in your entryway would be effective because it will prevent negative energy from entering your home or room. You could also place it in the center of your home or room to push out the negative energy.

Occasionally  you will want to clear your crystals, the most important time for clearing is when you first get a new crystal. You want to release old energy and intentions so it will have a clear and perfect vibration for the task you give it.  This can be done by rinsing them in filtered or distilled water then setting them outside or in a window with full bright sunlight or moonlight for at about 4 hours to retune or realign.  Another, sometimes more practical method, is the use of musical tones like those produced by a crystal singing bowl or a tuning fork.  I like to combine smudging to clear the air around them and then the tuning fork (4096Mz) to sort of shock them back to their original vibration.

If you are not attracted to tourmaline for this purpose you could also use amethyst, rose, smoky or clear quartz.  Rose Quartz is great to have at your entrance to encourage all who enter to be loving and accepting.  Clear quartz will amply the energy of any other crystal placed with it.
