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!

Love the cards. Sue Ann went above and beyond. Great feed back and easy to work with. Thank you Sue Ann.
5/25/19 Wow, Sue Ann - I just read the readings and the information about all of extra gifts. You never do anything half-way, do you :-) ?! ...Seriously, though - the readings are wonderful and it's amazing how each ancient squares with the personality of its intended recipient... I love my Messenger Hawk and feel very blessed to have that connection to my brother (who's on the other side.) I know that he's always around and it will be nice to have something tangible to help me stay connected to him. Thank you so much - you have outdone yourself again. I'm so glad to have made your connection - everything that you do creates so much positivity. I look forward to continuing to be a happy customer! 6/21/19 Update The boys and I are enjoying our ancients and crystals... I always meditate with my hawk. It's funny, but when I hold it in my hand, I can feel it pulsating - sometimes it feels like static electricity, and sometimes it's more pronounced. When I first noticed it doing that, I switched hands, thinking that maybe I just had a twitch or something, but I felt the pulsating in the other hand. Then I picked up a remote, a hair brush and other non-ancient things, and there was no pulsating at all, so I'm very confident that it's the hawk. I have a lot more peace and clarity when I meditate with it... The hawk helps me to feel grounded and centered, like when I'm headed out the door for a challenge or just general weekday craziness, I like to hold the hawk for a second to get my bearings... So happy to be one of your clients!
Love my horse statue!! SueAnn is the best!
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 ~
Sue Ann provided me yet again with exceptional personalized service and attention to detail. I appreciate how she takes the time to really focus in on items she is sending out from her shop in consideration of the intended recipients. Her connection to Spirit and interest in channeling the right energy for the best outcomes for her customers is truly noteworthy. I also am always pleased with the quality of the items purchased. Thanks Sue Ann!
Unbelievable Light Filled Energy Resonates from the website. Looking forward to receiving my purchases!
Thinking of you this morning and giving thanks for the love and beauty you are creating in the world! I love being your client!!!!!!!!
I audibly gasped as I unpacked these guys! Words cannot explain their amazing vibe. They were absolutely perfect for me at the exact right time. Thanks to Sue Ann and her spirit team for a job well done!
My mare is doing so much better, almost able to put her heel down when walking!
My energy is more clear and I'm really feeling and hearing things (intuitively) much more often with greater clarity. Just love it!
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!☆☆☆☆☆
(8/21/15) I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE, the 3 question service. So many times I have questions, of course (Ms. Gotta Know It All over here), but $$$ is always an issue. However, the 3 question deal makes it so much easier to get some quickie answers when one is not looking for a "deep, deep" understanding or just would otherwise not even contact you because they felt it wasn't "in the budget" just yet.
(Posted 4/13/17) Ziggy is doing very well! You were enormously helpful. I don't know what I would have done without you. You saved us both!
