Amber is more than often seen as a gem. But the glowing and warm amber is really not a stone. It is a resin that results from evergreen trees that are very old. The oldest amber ever to be discovered in the World is around 320 million years old. True amber takes thousands of years to form from the resin,
Ancient energy is one of the qualities of amber. With this, it has the wisdom of earth that has been there for thousands of years together with its natural kingdom. When you take a closer look, you will glance at insects that seem to be trapped in the stone, this gives amber magical properties.
Most amber stones have warm colors; sunny brown, yellow, and orange colors. You will also get gems of amber that are red, green, and blue in color. For jewelry purposes, most amber stones are color treated.
Origin of Amber
High-quality amber originates from Northern Europe Baltic countries. In Palanga, Lithuania, you will find a popular museum there. Another credible source of the blue amber gemstone which is very expensive and rare is the Dominican Republic. You can also find amber in Germany, Italy, Russia, and Poland.
Amber’s Healing Properties
Just like any other popular gemstone, amber has an accumulation of mystical properties.
The gem was regarded as the “soul of the tiger” in countries in Asia. It was also considered the stone that grants courage. Amber pieces were used for the treatment of jaundice and to protect someone during long travels.
It is also a belief that amber:
– Attracts good luck
– Balances emotions
– Gets rid of fear
– Eliminates headache
– Gives the mind clarity
– Dissolves energy that is negative
– Assists to develop wisdom and patience
– Baby Teething
The gemstone has been considered to be the birthstone of the Cancer astrological sign.
Wear the gem as jewelry or use it as a home décor to enjoy its amazing benefits.
Low Carb, No Carb, Low Glycemic, Fasting, Low Fat, High Fat …. we are bombarded with opinions of what is best for optimum health. For every opinion you find out there, you will find another one that says the opposite. To jog or not to jog, these are all valid questions when choosing a healthy lifestyle. Occasionally on my Facebook Feed there’s an article saying to stop doing something because I’ve been doing it all wrong. The last time it was stop brushing my teeth, apparently, I’m now supposed to be “oil pulling”.
Here’s what I know as it applies to myself. If I eat a lot, I gain weight. If I am stressed, I gain weight. If I don’t move, I gain weight. Sometimes, just thinking about it, makes me gain weight. I would love a magic formula to make me healthy. On that note, I combined these stones to help me with this. Each stone carries a unique vibration that enhances your pure intention of maintaining a healthy body.
WHITE MAGNESITE – Helps with weight control by speeding up fat metabolism.

This is our Healthy Living bracelet. It is designed to help you stay healthy. When you are about to reach for that piece of cake, give it a little snap on your wrist and eat only half.
Everyone needs some form of creative expression. Energy builds up in the body, and it has to be released in some form of natural creation. Paul Twitchell, one of my favorite authors once said that in order for art to be good, it must compel you go out and create something. I interpreted this as the creative energy of the artist, is transferred into the art and subsequently into the audience. Not every audience, only the ones that resonate with that particular energy. See the home page where I talk about the ticket to the train.
This combination of stones is designed to enhance your creativity. Each carries a unique, positive quality, and much like a tuning fork, resonates with that same quality in the wearer.

BLUE FLUORITE – Enhances creativity, orderly thought and clear communication.

This is our Creativity bracelet. Remember, that with pure intention, attuning to creativity is possible at anytime. One thing that I would like to point out. If you ever feel stifled, held back, or too busy to create, stop yourself. Find the time to express your creativity, releasing that energy, whether it’s cooking, art, writing, sewing, dance, ANYTHING that you “create” from within is vital to your health.
In this fast paced society we live in it is easy to forget about how important it is to take the time to breath. Taking conscious breaths calms the body, and also brings you aware of the present moment. This takes you out of your head, and focuses your attention on your body. While you are breathing, pay attention to your body, notice what parts you are more drawn to. Focus on that part of the body and recognize the energy there, explore it, ask yourself “what’s this all about”. You will feel it release. Bless it and let it go. Continue this until you no longer have these “spots” of energy. Until you are calm all over. This combination of gemstones assist you in finding your calm, peaceful place. When you do find it, you will experience true joy.

Even though it’s invisible, you know it’s there. Electromagnetic pollution. It comes from cell phones, computers, hydro lines, phone towers, microwave ovens, televisions, satellite dishes on the roof of your home, and pretty much anything that is plugged in or has a battery. Since we are made of energy as well, these negative, harmful frequencies enter our bodies and reek havoc to our electrical system. Headaches, fuzzy head, confusion, unexplained pains, nausea are some of the symptoms, and let’s not forget the ever increasing cases of cancer.
This combination of gemstones have been chosen to protect us from the harmful waves emitted by our electronics.

This is our Electrosmog Bracelet. It sure isn’t something we had to think about 100 years ago.
When choosing stones that resonate with Love, the possibilities were endless. I decided to separate the qualifying stones by color and interestingly enough, the purple stones began to show frequencies of the more non romantic love of family or really good friends.
AMETHYST – Heals the heart at a spiritual level.
LILAC AMETHYST – Brings love and light into the environment.
BLUE LACE AGATE – Promotes acceptance of love.

This is our Love Purple. It encourages more of a family love, say between sisters, mother and daughter, or elderly couples. A wonderful customer bought a pair of Love Purple earrings. I remember her because she was in her 70’s and dressed in all purple including her glasses. She called me about a year later, asking for another pair of earrings because she had lost one. She then shyly asked me if these earrings were supposed to bring love. It seems that for the first time in her life she met a wonderful companion. I love these stories!
Our higher self communicates with us nightly through symbols in our dreams. The dreams pass through a filer in our sub-conscious which is programmed by our beliefs. Our sub-conscious is designed to “protect” these beliefs, and therefore, the sensor will jumble or disorganize the dream. The combination of stones act like a demolition crew and have been chosen to help clear dream communication from the higher self so that one can benefit from its wisdom.

AMETHYST – Helps you remember and understand your dreams.
BLUE CHALCEDONY – Helps dissipate bad dreams.

Dream Work is a bracelet that has been very helpful to our clients. Originally designed with nightmares in mind, it is also effective in promoting the dreaming of loved ones who have crossed over.
Your intuition, the sixth sense. Some of us are tuned into it, some not so much. That little voice that tells you not to do something, that feeling in your gut that stops you from turning down a certain street. The sudden urge to call a loved one, only to find that they were just thinking of you. These are all examples of how our intuition plays an important role in our lives. Your inner voice will always lead you to the highest good. We are not alone in this journey of life and this combination of crystals help you tune into the frequency of the angelic world and spirit guides.
ANGEL AURA QUARTZ – This magnificent quartz is made by heating a fine layer of platinum at very high heat over top of a quartz crystal. It’s frequency enhances communication with angels and spirit guides.

CELESTITE – Helps contact with divine energies and the angelic realms and encourages enlightenment.

ANGELITE – A stone that enhances telepathy and helps conscious contact with the angelic realm.
AMETHYST – Versatile Amethyst enhances psychic gifts and opens the intuition.
This is our Intuitive You Bracelet. It is a very powerful piece of jewelry. An odd thing happened when I recommended this bracelet to a very religious customer. When she brought it home, she was holding it in her hand while reading the card with it’s meanings and it literally exploded in her hand. She got scared and put it away in a box. When she told me a while later, I realized that due to the strict religious energy in her home, the vibrations were in conflict with the energy of the bracelet. Funny, here is a time where I didn’t listen to my intuition when helping her chose the bracelet, which told me she needed a calming piece. Instead, I knew she was very religious and therefore thought she would like to communicate with her guides.
Self-confidence, independence, personal strength, self-esteem. Who of us doesn’t need a boost of this at some time or another? These stones have been combined to give you just that. They all have frequencies that help connect you to your own personal power. I once had a customer who was operating from a very low frequency. You could just feel it when she walked in. She had money troubles, out of a job, and boyfriend troubles. I just gave her a personal power bracelet. A couple of weeks later, she called me, totally different energy coming from her. She found a new job that paid more, and got rid of the bad boy friend. She felt great. I’ve tried various combinations of these stones, but this is the configuration that I found is the most effective.
YELLOW TIGER EYE – This stone helps you take action from a place of reason instead of emotion.
CARNELIAN – A power Carnelian will get to the bottom of a situation quickly and help you learn to trust yourself and your perceptions.

This is our Personal Power Bracelet, available at our Etsy Shop. Great to wear when you need that extra dose of confidence.
I’m sure you’ve all heard the expression “if you don’t use it, you lose it” as it applies to the mind. Too much hypnotic television (news stations, you know who you are) can actually make you dumber. I’ve caught myself glued on several occasions to the TV watching an approaching hurricane, thousands of miles away. Binge television watching is now a new trend. People sit for ridiculous amounts of hours watching entire seasons of shows in one sitting. I am actually guilty of this on occasion. I did it with “Suits”, and “House of Cards”. My friend confessed to me that Netflix has ruined her life. She stays up all night, goes to work bleary eyed, rushes back home, and the binge begins.
