CHIAPAS AMBER: MAYAN/AZTECA TREASURE
Updated March 18, 2018
Chiapas Amber is somewhat available yet considered rare...often displaying uncommon transparency + an array of not often seen colors, including rare blues & greens. Spirit purposely lead me to find & offer it. I spent a weekend with them chanting "Chiapas, Chiapas, Chiapas" to me. So I paid attention!
Hailing from the Chiapas State of southern Mexico, it is fairly difficult to acquire. Still mined by Mayan descendants (local Tzotzil people) with arduous effort, the small lots I acquire stateside have been hand polished without power tools or tumbler. Love that! The American who sources & sells these pieces has developed local contacts & even mines pieces himself occasionally. Cool Cultural Note: Recipes for Healing Salves, etc. (using leftover powder from polishing Chiapas) have been passed down through 100's of years. It's documented that various indigenous people of Mexico used amber for trade, ceremonial purposes, purported protective qualities, incense & more throughout history. Spanish conquistadors reportedly told of the Aztec emperor Montezuma stirring his chocolate with an amber spoon. It became known to the "modern" world in the early 1950's when an ex-oil industry worker turned Mayan Authority & Archeologist (Frans Blom of Denmark) became aware of the local amber deposits. Being an isolated & difficult to reach area, greater availability of this particular amber did not occur until around the 1990's or to some degree a bit earlier (1970's) from what I can tell.
Spirit guides me to make most of the pieces into powerful yet beautiful pendants for wearing close to your skin or over clothing. So far they've graced top level office meetings, various horse shows & even casinos for reported "mucha suerta!" (Yep.) I've sourced high-quality 1mm leather string, colored with only natural dyes for wearing. Looking great to wear keeps 'em handy to touch & connect with energetically as needed. Being fossilized resin containing both Ancient Tree & Earth Energies, all Amber tends to be stabilizing, nurturing, grounding, protective & have a wisdom vibe....plus healing & soothing vibes to boot. I think beginning as one thing (resin of a living tree) that is "reincarnated" into a new form lends all types of amber an energy conducive to "looking back at prior states of being" & "the building blocks" of ongoing situations, including old family histories, dynamics & past lives. The main energetic properties of Chiapas that I'm Intuitively aware of so far are: "Psychically Protective" "Healing with Greater Ease" "Fostering Removal of Harmful Past Life Energies" "bringing Clarity, Vitality, Stamina, Abundance, Calming, Healing &/or Festivity ;-) " Additionally, I feel a "Light Warrior" Vibe with Chiapas that haven't felt with other Amber. Each piece's color & shape will have bearing on this. Spirit has asked me to additionally convey they are all "special & a bit unique, given their geographic origins being predisposed to energies of 'Ancient Ingenuity!' & living closely with 'The Land.' " I'm truly intrigued with Chiapas & still becoming acquainted with these Ancient Spirits.
Please note I rub each piece with my own Myrrh Attar Oil for even more Healing, Protecting, Spiritually Elevating Vibes. This specially charged Resin Oil helps amp up the Chiapas' Energy overall, yet may lend even more help for exploring past lives &/or "Ancestral Wounds," I'm being told Intuitively. (I was literally vibrating as I typed that!) Diving into your past in either form can help reveal important Spiritual Insights. Cool! Both originate as tree resin....one being recent, one being ancient. I sense that's part of what makes this combo groove so well. One helps bring forward the gifts of the other while creating a loving, earthy synergy. Gotta love it! This particular Myrrh Oil surprisingly enlivens these pieces & takes their vibes to a new level in my experience! For the Special Myrrh article click: Special Myrrh Attar Oil

While placing my last order, this unique skull pendant "called out" to me till I found it ;-) As soon as my order was completed, he gregariously came through Intuitively & kept making me laugh with funny images of him + indicated he would "get my back!" Thanks Charlie Chiapas for that & for helping expand my 1st hand knowledge of Ancient Chiapas Amber. Gotta love it!
Some Cool Pieces that Have Already Sold
I am fortunate enough to have made the first call. Sue Ann is a great teacher, guide, and listener. Sue Ann offers much more than just a reading, a nice surprise.
The all-inclusive phone appointment is well named - it covers a lot of ground! I had certain concerns that I wanted to discuss with Sue Ann. She addressed all of them and had insights on so many other issues too! She is so generous with her time and is so positive, supportive and encouraging - it's like talking with a good friend who really wants the best for you. We did energy work on the call as well. I wasn't initially sure what it was or what to expect, but the day after the call I could absolutely feel a huge shift - like someone opened a big window inside and let in all of this energy and light. Can't recommend Sue Ann enough. Any time that you spend with her is a gift!
I just love it... I love the smell & it just makes me feel good! I love the smell & energy both... I'm not sure why yet, but it all seems to go together well for me!!
If you are like me, you might be nervous about accessing SueAnn's unique expertise, but you definitely don't have to be. SueAnn is the real deal. She'll explain everything, she's incredibly warm and responsive and clearly cares for her clients as much as their animals. SueAnn worked with me via email and reached out to my dog who passed in 2012 (or more accurately, he reached out to her)! The experience brought me a great deal of peace and comfort and helped heal a long-open wound caused by his loss. Highly recommend SueAnn!!
"... you are a MIRACLE WORKER!!! ... I am SOOOO Grateful!!!!!!! Honestly— it is like a Miracle— really a CHRISTMAS MIRACLE that we needed to have— so desperately. The WHOLE house feels happier— we are able to BREATHE again. Thank you, dear friend." ~ Private Client, 12/31/18 ~

Yes, I do notice a difference! I will be out in about five days, so am eager to order more. They got the stuff to me pretty quickly last time....
Sue Ann gave me the kind of personal attention with my order that made me feel like I'd walked into her shop and met with her. The products I bought were exactly as expected, and very high-quality. I highly recommend her! (Photo of crystal during the Solar Eclipse.)
(Posted 2/26/16) One conversation with Sue Ann and my cat Betty went from sad to glad! I came home to a happy cat running and playing and "hanging" with me all evening. In fact, Betty snuggled closer than ever before. Thanks so much, Sue Ann, for letting Betty know that I just want her to be happy. You've got to try this - it's pawsome awesome!!
(Posted 1/4/17) I've used others before finding you...but you're quicker, more precise, more in depth.
(Posted 12/12/16) You told me (in a prior appointment) I would have a chestnut (colored) foal & I did! I could NOT figure out how with 2 bay colored horses, but you were right. I'll keep you updated & we'll be speaking again!
(1/19/17) Sue Ann is the absolute best!! You will feel and see things so much more clearly and have that "Aw Ha moment" every time you are done with your session. It's amazing all of the things that come together as your session with Sue Ann continues through the end.
(Posted 9/10/15) I cannot express how much gratitude I have for Sue Ann Smith. She has helped my husband and me so much with her Intuitive Healing. Priceless!☆☆☆☆☆
Sue Ann is such a blessing! Her spirit and guidance are a true gift! I am blown away by the answers I received! Some were not what I wanted to hear, however, I am open to what they mean! I was so grateful for the time and detail that Sue Ann put into answering my questions! I have happily recommended her to several friends and will continue to do so! So grateful to have found her!!! With much heart! Ashley
