~ Colour Associated with Archangel Gabriel...There are two main colours, one being white and the second shades of yellow through to gold. White brings clarity, clear communication and understanding. Whereas the golds have higher information, uplifting spiritual energy and ascension. Both are uplifting with Gabriels energy being very much about raising vibrations and sparking understanding of our inner wisdom.
~ Crystals Associated with Archangel Gabriel...The main crystal is Amber however there are also connections with Citrine, Carnelian and Clear Quartz. All these beautiful crystals will heighten intuition and clear away any limiting beliefs that stop you from believing in yourself. I particularly like clear quartz as it's intention can be altered and adapted depending on what we need help with. Gabriel assists us to see problems differently and find alternative ways to communicate so this works well for me. However you may prefer to start with a crystal in Gabriels colour energy field to build up your relationship first.
Carnelian is particularly good for motivation, positive life choices, energy and courage. It brings through Gabriels fun side and pushing you to keep going. If you are lacking in energy then this is a go to crystal. If you are also looking to spark ideas and get communication going through a group of people then carnelian placed in a work space or busy part of the home also works very well. Gabriels energy will infuse into the situation and people concerned to create harmony and a sense of pulling together.
