The emerald came forward revealing the abundant green vitalizing gifts of life.
As the fifth of our exploration journeys into gemstones (7/5-2015), it confirmed common themes and qualities we did start to see in all the gemstones so far. But also it gave us its unique qualities as one of the most appreciated gems of them all.
With its graceful gentle but dynamic power Emerald showed it was dissolving the qualities of duty as we see them in the modal verbs such as should, must, would, could, might, into a present state of accepting and flowing with life.
Emerald helps you to make the right priorities in life, so you do not need to regret not having lived at the end of your life or when faced with terminal illness, as cancer. It helps you appreciate and choose the intimate close friendships or relation to loved ones compared to the relations that are defined by duty, responsibility, obligation or commitments based on “shoulds” and “musts”.
This revealed to us its polarity in Kabbalah between Binah and Netzach, planetary between Saturn and Venus or between the Archetypes The Old and The Young Girl. A polarity that can be expressed with many different words; It is a polarity between the feeling of having limited or unlimited time. Between death and life. Between a closed isolated inhibition and intimate tender loving care. It is the polarity between the old serious duty bound and the young living girl in love. As well as polarity between the authoritarian religious leaders and the inner individual realization of the spiritual world.
Life gives hope, as the new spring does with its green lush. Hope is like connecting to the life that always is. Hopelessness is being stuck in a dead end road, in a situation that is not nourishing you. A situation that is killing you. Emerald helps you to dissolve that, let it go, let it evaporate as an illusion. You came from a state of life and you are heading back there. What is between is just passing it is not permanent, it is just illusion. With Emerald you can question yourself why you are hanging on to it, and you can let go, you can live again. It even makes you realize that when you stop your life, you live for ever, it is when you die that you stop dying and live alive.
Emerald opens up the heart to humankind and all living beings, it fills you with tenderness and care. It makes you aware of your suffering neighbours in the third world, and as it gives you appreciation of your own manifold blessings it also fills you with the priority of stretching out your hands and giving. It makes you realize that it is more gifts in giving than in receiving, as well as enjoying the blessings of your own life.
Emerald gives a pure, clear etheric life force streaming through your whole body, your every cell, and particularly the heart and kidneys. But it also makes you accept impurities that are natural and hence delusions.
With its life force it gives you the ability to master and overcome big endeavours step by step when you feel completely overwhelmed by huge impossible tasks or workloads.
When you feel sorrow or forsaken or are missing someone, it gives you the ability to give and hence to open up the limitless source within, and the first to be completed or filled then is yourself.
As nature, is natural, and the word nature means birth, so Emerald gives birth to the most natural in yourself, the life force itself, the real beauty and its connectedness to all living. It transforms you, let you move on when stuck, gives you life when dead, gives you hope when you feel despair, gives you love when you feel isolation.
Emerald lets you give and take on life here and now “Carpe diem”
The state and attitude of Emerald is most beautifully expressed in the Prayer of Saint Francis:
Lord, make me a channel of Thy peace;
Where there is hatred, let me bring your love
Where there is injury, your pardon; Lord
Where there is doubt, true faith in you;
Make me a channel of your peace
Where there’s despair in life, let me bring hope;
Where there is darkness, only light;
And where there’s sadness, ever joy.
Oh, Master grant that I never seek
So much to be consoled, as to console;
To be understood, as to understand;
To be loved as to love with all my soul
Make me a channel of your peace
It’s in pardoning that we are pardoned;
In giving to all men that we receive;
And in dying that we’re born to eternal life.
