Angelic Crystal Card: 35. Amber
All experience that upset our equilibrium can get ‘trapped’ in our system in the form of stress or anxiety, which prevents the natural harmonious movement of life-energy. We need to release or unblock these stresses from all levels of our Being. To begin this unblocking, detoxifying or purification process and bring about a harmonious environment that will allow our body to heal and renew its self - I can think of no better crystal than Amber.
Purification has always been acknowledged as a necessary and integral part of spiritual practice. The ritual of purification allows time for redirection of the mind from mundane daily matters to a more spiritual plane.
Although amber is not actually a crystal, it is used by crystal therapists to quieten and relax every level of our Being, allowing the natural flow of healing energy to begin. Amber increases our awareness of the life-giving flow of earth energy. Its message is: relax; release, purify that which no longer serves you to reveal your source of inner-light.
Amber is the ancient fossilized resin of long dead trees that grew in forests millions of years ago. Over time, chemical and physical changes occurred fossilizing the resin to create the amber we know and love. Recent research indicates amber ranges from 2 million to 360 million years in age. Most gem quality amber on sale varies from 5 million to 50 million years. Its unique ability to preserve organic tissue (prehistoric life forms) is valued by the scientific community. In ancient times, amber was used medicinally. Amber was thought to provide sorcerers with special powers and to offer magical light for the deceased as they progressed through the underworld.
When you rub amber, static electricity is generated. In fact, the word electricity is derived from the ancient Greek word for amber, ‘elektron’ or ‘sun made’. The common inclusions in amber are a variety of pre-historic insects, plant debris and small animals. Preserved in amber, the insects are visible in almost perfect condition. Amber is very soft, only 2 to 2.5.
Be aware though that pieces that contain insects may be plastic or reconstituted resin. Copal resin is often sold as amber; ambroid is a composite of amber that is created by heating small bits of amber at high temperatures and compressing them together. It is frequently dyed and it is much stronger than natural amber.

Chakra: Solar Plexus
Magic: Amber symbolises life-energy, allowing us to connect with our inner-light. Amber is warming, purifying, healing and protective. Amber assists us to release stress, lift our spirits, bringing renewed hope and joy.

Spiritual: Amber works by filling gaps and holes within the auric shell – I have always called this auric gapping. These may be caused by illness, accident, trauma, medication, stress, depression, shock or psychic or psychological attack. Amber is excellent for birth and rebirthing rooms. When consciously directed amber has been known to facilitate warmth to the whole auric field; even for those clients of mine who may have suffered for years with ‘cold’ hands and feet.
Meditation: Amber is used in past-life meditations, and to explore other dimensions.
