Is amber a real stone?
Amber is a beautiful stone… Wait! Is it a stone at all? Amber is not classified as a stone as it’s fossilised, hardened resin of trees from less than a million to more than 300 million years old. Many people don’t believe in the healing properties of amber, but to be honest I am not bothered with that. As I come from the family of jewellery makers, amber was a part of my life since I was a little girl, and placing amber beads on linen string is one of my first childhood memories. And guess what? I really do believe in the healing properties of amber.
Well-known healing properties of amber (boring!)
I’m going to get through all the well-known healing properties of amber in the next post. Realising headache, helping babies with teething…we know all these properties as they’re repeated like a mantra on every single website and blog about healing crystals. I would like to focus a little bit more on my own experiences with healing properties and how amber affected my life. As I’m nearly 30 years old, I have almost 27 years of experience with amber. Can you believe it? I hope you like my post!
Working with amber
Working with amber is extremely easy, you can spend hours on making amber necklaces, bracelets and you don’t feel drained at all. Amber is a warm stone (or not a stone?) as holding amber beads is a very pleasant experience. I didn’t realize how warm it is unlit someone presented me with a striped flint. When I held the striped flint for the first time I was shocked how cold that was! I think of amber as a powerful healer and cleanser, and probably that is a reason why working with amber is so satisfying. By absorbing pain and negative energy, amber helps rebalance the energy level in your body and is an excellent healer. Amber is called ‘sun stone’ for a reason, and a lovely sunny colour is not the only one of them. It’s also the warm, bright energy that amber brings to your life.
Amber – a life changer
In my opinion, amber brought stability to my life, and not by wearing it…but by working with amber. By stimulating the intellect and promoting a positive mental state amber helped not only me but also my mum and my family with dealing with problems, life crisis and I believe it wouldn’t be possible with any different stone. It is believed that amber is a strong motivator and from my own experience I must admit that that’s true. Thanks to amber, my mother was able to drive her passion into a successful jewellery company. Many people may say that if you work hard, you will be successful in every area of life, but I would not 100% agree with that. Why?
How amber changed my life
As you probably know, I sell amber jewellery on Etsy and eBay. I started my journey as a seller of jade, rhinestone, and pearls jewellery. In my opinion, bracelets that I offered were really nice but surprisingly there was no interest in them. One day I decided to remove all bracelets from the shopping platform and…apologize to amber! Going with other stones was a kind of manifestation that I did not want to have anything to do with amber. You need to understand – amber was present in my life since I was a child and I was fed up with that. After my failure with different stones, I started to add pieces of amber jewellery to my online shops. And guess what? People wanted to buy my amber jewellery! I didn’t put more effort into selling amber jewellery compering to other bits and pieces I tried to sell, but for some reason, it just worked better. I think that I had to grow up to understand the power of amber jewellery and I strongly believe I own the little success of my online shops to amber.
