The things she leaves behind

August 11, 2016 Writing  One comment

The night that Amy leaves, she leaves behind a token for each member of her family.
*They all play a symbolic role in the story.


For Charlie, she leaves behind her wedding band
She knows he will hold on to hope of her coming home if she doesn’t give it back.

For Nathan, she leaves her St. Christopher’s medal.
To protect travelers across turbulent waters.

Amber is Amy’s astrological stone.

Amber helps draw out negative energy from the body then allows the body to heal itself by taking that negative energy and transmuting it into a positive energy that purifies the body, soul, heart, and spirit.

Amber warms you up (thaws coldness – Jamie’s detachment, numbness)

It is said to help manifest desires and heighten intellectual abilities, clarity of thought, and wisdom. Helps you make conscious, clear choices.

It is used mystically to bring the energies of patience, protection, psychic shielding, romantic love, sensuality, purification, balance, healing and calmness to those who wear or carry it.

It is considered a good luck charm for love and marriage. (Amy doesn’t want Jamie to fall prey to the same fate she did)

Amber is excellent in crystal healing for inner child work and past life work.

In ancient times, amber was carried by travelers for protection.

In the Far East, amber is the symbol of courage; Asian cultures regard amber as the ‘soul of the tiger’; Egyptians placed a piece of amber in the casket of a loved one to ensure the body would forever remain whole.


She left behind the thing she knew they would need the most.


Up next: Jacob, bartender at Charlie’s Place, Jamie and Nate’s default uncle 


Until next time, farewell & may your life never cease to be filled with wonder and curiosity.
