Amber is not only absolutely gorgeous and recognized and loved by many; it also has phenomenal healing properties. Amber is considered very sacred particularly to Native American and Eastern Indian cultures where it has been used in the fire ceremonies of ancient tribal healers. You can also burn amber as an incense to clear your environment of negativity.
While amber is found in most crystal store, did you know it is actually a fossilized tree resin? Amber’s healing properties are profound in that it is able to absorb and transmute negative energy into pure positive energy. It is excellent for the solar plexus chakra as it is very connected to the healing energy of the sun. It can also be used for those who are challenged with seasonal affective disorder by emitting the warming energies of the sun to chase away your winter blues.
Melody, the author of Love is In The Earth mentions that Amber “is a stone dedicated to the connection of the conscious self to universal perfection. It helps one in the art of manifestation to bring that which is desired to the state of reality. It stimulates the intellect and opens the crown chakra. It also transmutes the energy of physical vitality toward the activation of unconditional love.”
Melody also says that amber “has been used as a symbol for renewal of marriage vows and to assure promises. It has been said to bring good luck to warriors” as amber is a highly protective stone to anyone who wears or carries it.
Many mothers are also using amber teething necklaces to assist their little ones in alleviating the pain and inflammation associated with teething. While the necklaces are meant to be worn and not chewed it is said that due to ambers natural calming affects on nerves as well as its powerful and natural pain relieving and anti-inflammatory properties that it really helps during the teething process.
While amber has many more properties and uses than what are currently listed here, the most important critically important thing to remember about amber is that it can prevent someone from going into anaphylactic shock, which as we all know can be fatal if not treated immediately.
If you know someone who is allergic to bee stings, for example, it is a good idea to carry Amber with you, if you are not near an Epipen or are too far from the hospital, take your piece of amber and apply it directly to the spot of the bee sting and hold it their while you are on your way to get help. Amber will keep a person from going into anaphylactic shock and therefore amber can truly be used to save some one’s life!
