Why Amber Should Be Your Next GO-TO Crystal

One crystal I never shut up about is Amber... which actually isn't even a real crystal. Amber is fossilized tree resin, but it still gives off AMAZING energy and health benefits for all ages (babies too!)

I used to work at a crystal store and we carried Amber teething necklaces. You would be amazed at how many couples came back with their little ones to rave about how amazed they were at how the Amber really helped! The stories our staff would hear were amazing - like the crystals gave the little ones immediate relief. So awesome! 

If you are interested in buying an Amber teething necklace, PLEASE BE SURE to be cautious while shopping. The photo above is from a reputable seller with amazing reviews and genuine amber. Don't believe me? Read her reviews! You can shop from AmberAndHaze by clicking right here or the photo above.  

Checklist for Amber teething necklace shopping: 

  • Is it safe? (Just because someone can string amber on elastic doesn't mean they should! knotted is the way to go with a safe clasp.)
  • Is it from a reputable seller? (read the reviews, read their bio, get in contact with them!!!!) 
  • Is it genuine amber? (acrylic and glass do not do the same thing, friends.)

I suffer from TMJ pain... well - not anymore I should add. I stopped experiencing the pain that comes along with grinding your teeth after I slept with Amber. Folks - I could have went with Amethyst, but that crystal can really mess with you dreams. I could have went with quartz - A "master healer" - but it keeps you awake. I could have went with any other crystal but I figured if Amber works for a baby's teeth, I'm sure it will work for mine. The next morning after trying this I had NO pain in my jaw! I do not sleep with the crystal anymore and haven't in two years and I have no issues with this anymore.

I do wear Amber almost every day as a necklace, around my waist, or as a ring. I have struggled with terrible sciatic pain and back pain and every time I wear Amber I notice significant difference. 

I wear this crystal during my moon cycle. WOMEN - This is one of the best healing stones for period cramps and pains that I have ever met in my life. Wearing it against your body during your moon cycle helps your feminine nature realign. Say goodbye to terrible PMS symptoms... This crystal has got your back!

Amber is amazing for the digestive system (find out more here!), reproductive system and fertility, endocrine system, physical pain, and so much more! It is also an amazing stone for enhancing creativity, joy, and personal power. This crystal identifies with the Solar Plexus and Sacral Chakras. 

Depression and anxiety are also treatable with the use of Amber. Check out this article on: Healing Depression with Crystals

Why Everyone is Obsessed with This Healing Crystal

There is one healing crystal making its way in not just the spiritual community, but is becoming a trend everywhere. Of all the beautiful healing crystals, why is this one becoming so popular? 

The Glow of Labradorite

Labradorite has an incredible glow. Eskimo lore believes that Labradorite are fallen pieces of aurora borealis. Within first glance of this stone you can see why. This amazing healing stone glows all different colors; from shades of gold to green to blue, sometimes even pink and purple. However, like the night sky, when not met with the certain light these colors are hidden and the stone appears black, gray, or dark blue.

The Amazing Meaning and Benefits of Labradorite

There are way too many good things to write about this stone so I had to limit myself. One of my first crystals was labradorite, and it will forever be my favorite stone. From eyesight, to the nervous system, to protection, to empathy - this healing stone is definitely one that everyone should add to their collection. It is also one that most people should be carrying around on hand at all times.

Spiritually Protection & Energy Shield

HSP (or highly sensitive person) and empaths are the first to benefit from a Labradorite stone. If you find you are drained by the energies of others, take on the energies of others, get overly emotionally involved in TV shows, movies, books, media, etc. Then you might need this stone. These are all traits of empaths. Empaths and HSP's often find that those around them love to confide in them, look to them for advice, or all share painful stories. This is because these types of people are highly empathetic. It is an amazing quality - but requires lots of shielding. This stone can help you lend your compassion, while shielding your aura so the energy of others does not drain you. 

The Stone of Spiritual Awakening

There is definitely an energetic shift occurring. Several people that I meet describe this feeling and it is amazing that we can all be a part of it. Labradorite can help align you with the shift that is occurring if you are yearning to experience it. This stone encourages new age thought, heightened sense of spirituality, alignment with the Universe, Divine forces, and can even enhance communication with Spirit Guides. It opens the Third Eye Chakra. This stone can awaken your personal sense of magic and your intuition. 

Improves Relationships with Self & Others

One thing I have always found fascinating is the concept of "mirrors." Since my personal understanding of this concept, I have found that it is easier to accept, learn from, and love others. This concept is that every person you meet is a reflection of yourself. That means that everything you love about a person, is something you love about yourself or something that you share with that person. It also means that every negative judgment you have about another person, is an area in which you could improve. 

Conversely, if you find yourself being way too hard on yourself for something, you might find that other people mirror what it is that you are struggling with - and this may help you accept yourself and free yourself from the burden you put on yourself. 

Understanding "mirrors" can help you repair your ability to see others with a positive light, so you can see yourself in a positive light. Labradorite can help you reflect upon this philosophy. It allows for inner reflection and a vivid connection with this concept. 

People are rocking this stone in some beautifully wild ways!

Seriously I am starting to notice this stone ALL over. Sherwin Williams even has a paint color named "Labradorite." I've noticed people rocking phone cases and tote bags with this stone on it in public. Some of my favorite labradorite items are featured below. (the dress is my fave!) You can also find several one-of-a-kind labradorite necklaces and pendants on my shop.

Five Reasons To Meditate And How Crystals Can Help

Meditation can be an amazing tool once you understand how it works. After learning about its benefits, you'll wonder why you didn't start meditating sooner! I challenge you (no excuses!!!) to try to meditate for ten minutes each day. Bonus Points if you use a crystal! Suggested crystals are listed at the end. So here's why we meditate:

1. Changes Your Perspective of Time.

One of the biggest excuses I hear on why people don't meditate is that they don't have the time. To that I say - if you have time to lie restless in bed, binge watch netflix, or scroll mindlessly on your phone, you have time to meditate! Even if you are at work, you can take just five minutes to close your eyes and control your breathing. Even if you are in the car, you can focus on your breathing and clearing your mind. Once you are able to make the time for meditation, the false illusion of "time" you might have had before will begin to change. Suddenly you will find you are not rushing or in such a haste anymore. Meditation helps you focus on the present and live in the NOW!

2. Makes Small Problems Seem.... Small.

When I started meditating regularly, I found that little things began to bother me less and I wasn't angered so easily. Wouldn't it be nice to be a little bit happier - to not get such bad road rage, or to not get so annoyed by pesky people... When you learn to control your breathing and your thoughts, you are subconsciously training your brain to control itself - to not let thoughts get the best of you. It takes patience to meditate, right? So by teaching yourself to be patient with yourself and the process of meditation, you are ultimately becoming a more patient person. 

3. Calms That Monkey-Mind.

Monkey Mind is the fun name we tack onto out of control racing thoughts "what am I going to make for din- I forgot paper towels at the grocery store, I wonder what the weather is going to be tomor- I should probably do the laundry.." Sound familiar? Meditation is not learning how to completely shut off your thoughts but rather how to control them. It is completing one thought and bringing yourself back to a state of peace. By calming Monkey Mind, we really are able to get more done by focusing on one thing at a time and learning how to silence thoughts that are irrelevant in that moment. 

4. Regulates Energy Levels.

If you are a morning meditator, you will wake up, get your breathing and your mind on track, center yourself to a state of focus, and be ready to begin your day. If you are a bedtime breather, you will allow your body and mind to find stillness, alleviate any tension, and have a great night of sleep. If you are both - you rock!

5. Improves Physical Health.

Meditation is said to help lower blood pressure, improve the digestive system, regulate heart rate, dissipate pain, heal skin conditions, and more. How in the world does this happen? Because meditation reduces stress. Many of these ailments are side effects to stress. Once you find a way to reduce stress, you will find not only your mental and emotional health improving, but your physical health too. 

If you are finding you are having trouble meditating, you may want to pair this exercise with a crystal. Wearing these crystals during meditation can help deepen your meditative state by aligning their vibrations with yours.

Now... Get into a relaxed position.... close your eyes... inhale while counting to four, exhale while counting to eight... Focus on nothing but the present moment, the energy within you, and the energy of love within your healing crystal.... And say with me - "Om Shanti, Shanti Om." (Peace for all beings and the universe as a whole!)
