Opal – 12.th holonistic gemstone exploration – by Andreas N. Bjørndal

Here you can read discoveries from the exploration of Opal.
(Explored 18.th of February 2016.)

A fluid nature

Opal has a quality that gives it a fluid like nature. This makes it easy to connect with it due to its ability to flow and to merge. It can help you to connect and disconnect.

It lets you go with the flow. As with many of the gemstones we explored it has the same polarity between structure and flow, or being stuck or flowing.

It has the quality of a cosmic mother, connecting you to the whole universe. As such it gives you a higher perspective and overview. It takes you from the limited you to a higher whole a higher holon.

Transcending chaos and fragments
Where there is chaos, lots of fragments, opposing interests and hidden messages, or miscommunication Opal helps to connect, take a higher perspective, following a higher will or more elevated position of intentions.

If you take the situation in the war or wars in Syria the last years, with many different groups opposing each other on different subjects and joining each other on others, you can understand the mixture and fragmentation of Opal on one side and see the opposite uniting goal that would need a higher perspective for the common good on the other side. The same you can say for the reactions following Brexit.
Both events had a synchronicity with the exploration of Opal.

Letting go
Opal is not only submerging you into a cosmic sea, it connects you with a powerful force like a maelstrom or whirlpool a drive from the higher realms, reconnecting you. If you are stuck, it helps you letting go and going with the flow into a higher unity a place where communications seems too limited even obsolete. A state where you instead of describing a thing or situation with concepts and words feel the need to experience or to be the thing you are talking about rather than putting superficial words to describe it. To experience or being it in the same sense as submerging into it like bathing in it.

If you are rigid stuck, cramped or experience stiffness Opal will release and make things flow. Fragmented chaos will be united on a higher level. Both these themes are solved by transcending to a higher level, the cosmic sea of fire, behind all creation. This process of transcending to a higher perspective is common to so many of the gemstones.

The play between 3 and 9
It takes you from superficial understanding to a deeper knowledge. Even if you struggle to describe, find words, expressions or concepts Opal will help you to transcend this challenges. It might even make you let them go completely, by transcending to a deep realization that they are already solved.

The number 3 is connected with the Hebrew letter Gimmel meaning Camel an animal of transportation. The number represented communications between different villages as the number today also represents all sorts of communication.  Three can be seen as two equals with the third element commuting between them. It is fragments, in the form of words, messages, letters, parcels etc. that go from one to the other. Fragments are a central aspect in Opal. (Read more about the Hebrew letters here)

The number 9 is connected with the Hebrew letter Teth, a coiled snake. It represents the completion of the circle or a spiral. As a circle it is like the snake that bites its own tale, or the process that has reached back to itself, where the goal and the start meet. It represents the seed or potential as well as the completion. The seed is just waiting to start a new circle of growing and flowering to create a new seed again. The seed is where the old tree and the tree to be born are one, as the “Tree potential”. (Read more about the Hebrew letters here)

Opal connects you with this quality represented in number 9 that at the same time is the potential tree in the seed and the completed tree giving new seeds on a level where you transcend from running the cycle but perceive it as one, as a circle that just is timeless. It connects you with the state that existed before birth and after death. The play of number three, alone or multiplied by itself giving 9 is a good description of the qualities in Opal. The mathematics of 3×3 = 9 can be understood as either the line of 3 or its square in the plane of 9. It like connecting two dimensions the line and the plane or the quality of 3 (fragments and communication) and the quality of 9 (potential circle or completed circle).

The connection of fragments or parts, as in the quality of number 3, is also shown in Opals enhancement of communication across differences or different levels or planes. It was perceived as stimulating communication with the spiritual world like with angels or even with extra terrestrial awareness or just strangers. The quality we call 9 here is making you realize the connection is already there and the 3 facilitates the exchange.

Opal also makes you realize that the heaviness of gravitation can be perceived as weightless waves in the cosmic sea, a feeling of flowing in a state where matter and weight disappears. Like floating weightless in the cosmic sea.

As with many gemstones it takes away the delusion of time, past and present, particularly in regard to confusion by fragmentation by connecting you to the source, a state before things where fragmented; The Word of the beginning, the unified perspective of knowledge, the music of the spheres.

By connecting you with this higher realms, the sea of light, it makes you transcend misunderstandings and conflicts and helps you reconnect with the circles around you, your family, neighbours, colleges etc. until you reach the cosmic sea connecting it all.

Opal makes you realize you can rest confident with the deep understanding of being taken care of and with a feeling of belonging to bigger and bigger circles, wholes or holons even to the level of the cosmic sea.

Opal helps you to let go of things you have been stuck to, things you have been afraid of loosing, things you have believed had to stay as they were. Opals releases and dissolves so you can flow into a bigger belonging, into the cosmic sea of light, the sea of fire; sha-maim (Hebrew for Heaven =Shin-sea or fire sea).
As expressed in the Genesis of the Bible: Bereshit bara Elohim AT HaShamaim ve AT HaAretz. Ve HaAretz ha ita tohu ve bohu ve Hhoshekh  al phani tehoum ve rouach Elohim merouhphat al phani HaMayim. Ve Yomer Elohim yehy Aur Ve Yehi Aur Veyarey Elohim AT HaAur ki tov.
(In the beginning God created AT in Heaven and AT upon Earth. And the Earth was desolated and waste and darkness was upon the face of the abyss and God spirit hovered upon the face of the waters. God said let their be light and be light. And God saw AT light was good/completed.)

Opal reconnects you with the beginning of creation where the wholeness becomes differentiated into parts and when you return to it the fragmentation dissolves into unity again.

USE
It is a good remedy or gemstone to use when you feel stuck, hopeless and despair. When confused, chaotic and completely disconnected with a higher purpose or higher meaning. When you feel isolated and not taken care of.
When you feel you are in the middle of a war like conflict that is fragmented into many fractions and confusion and chaos dominates.

The Magic Circle – Andreas N. Bjørndal

Magic circles have been used throughout the ages. It could be stone circles like Stonehenge or an opening in the woods consecrated for rituals. Any church or temple can also be considered a magic circle. Even your home can become a magic circle.

Skjermbilde 2017-12-08 kl. 10.06.25.png


December 7th 2017 we explored the Magic circle with holonistic knowledge. We will soon share what we found, but first let us look at the concept of The Magic Circle as such.



Within a magic circle there are a set of rules or energies. They govern the circle and they create a focus or centre. Around that circle we have a undefined area that still relates or is associated with the circle. Further out is all that does not belong to the circle, nor the focus of attention or the game.

The circle of the game
Games we play like board games are magic circles. Within the game there are rules. The zone around it less defined with changing players, extra dices, counters and pieces and their box. Further out is the world and not part of the game.

Ballgames as football, tennis, basket etc. have an inner circle; the field or pitch. Inside the circle we have a set of rules that are protected from interference. Outside this inner circle you have photographers, and assistant referees (known as linesman or lineswoman before 1996), the coach and also substitutions, bench players or reserves. Then you have the public and the hall or stadium. Outside of these two circles is the rest of the world.

A game creates a focus of awareness and elevated attention in a limited set space and time. All the rest of the world is locked out and the mind is sharply focused on every step or change or is preoccupied with planning a strategy for the next move.

White and black magic
In magic the magic circle is used very much in the same way; giving the mind a focus of attention as inviting into the circle and awareness or spirit a centre or inspiration (in-spirit) coming from above.
White magic is safe; it is inviting something into the circle and you surrender to it with trust. With black magic the circle turns into a field of protection and the ego and your powers is the main focus. Black magic makes you and your intentions the limit, the highest holon or unit, while white magic unites you with a bigger holon and expands your awareness and lifts you up. The black variation is ego centred and pulls you down and fear is easily a player. With white magic you can let go, you feel free, and you can trust and are taken care of.

Creating a magic circle
You can create a magic circle in your imagination if you need to have strength or feel you need protection through the presence of something higher than yourself. Just envision a circle of light around yourself or a sphere of light if you prefer.

You can also create a stable magic circle in nature by placing stones in a circle or making a clearing in the woods or a sacred place in your garden. Here you can return and build up the energy.

Every home should have a sacred place as the focus or centre of the family that represents the centre of your magic home circle of your living unit. You can choose what you want to make up and create your sanctum or sacred place; a religious symbol, a picture of Mother Mary, a saint or a guru. It could also be a gemstone, a candle, some incense or anything that makes you feel sacred, inspired or connected.

Even better is it if you consecrate a regular time to meditate or have a daily few minutes centred in the presence of your sanctum. Sit down an fill the space of your home with your awareness and good intentions all the way out to the magic circle that defines the outer limits of your space. Skjermbilde 2017-12-08 kl. 14.24.02

People working with ritualistic magic will choose to make a circle, or use a carpet with symbols or lay them out on the floor. A carpet or floor with a circle with specific symbols could be the signs of the zodiac, the Hebrew letters, pentagrams etc. The illustration is made by Frater Asterion and is a nice example.

Circle of Aleph and Tau
The circle represent the complete cycle of the day, the year, your life or even eternity. It represent Alpha and Omega. When Christ said I am Alpha and Omega or rather Aleph Tau in Aramaic, he meant; I represent everything, I represent it all, I am completed, I am aware of the whole extension of my being, my existence and meaning. Skjermbilde 2017-12-08 kl. 11.23.48

It is like the initiatic symbol of the snake biting its tail. This represents how the initiate “eats” or transforms his lower parts (the tail) as he evolves. Hence the initiate or master is aware of the whole circle from beginning to end, from the first to the last letter of the alphabet; Aleph – Tau.  He is aware of his dark side, his unconscious and has puts light into the darkest aspects of himself or herself.

In the bible it also says God created AT Heaven and AT Earth, the little word AT is often not translated. AT means every aspect, every principle, every step of evolution that was needed for time and space to have all the evolution and involution. The Greek Ouroborus or Nordic Midgardsorm are snakes biting their tails and enveloping the whole universe. They represent the magic circle of the universe.

Our holonistic experience
The holonistic experience showed us that The magic circle creates a focus of attention, a centre of activity or a centre of peace and calm in the middle of chaos (Similar to Topaz).

You could say it represents a focus on the awareness horizon. It lets things emerge from the unconscious and appear into the awareness. It also keeps out what you do not want to disturb your attention.

This is in a strong contrast with the phenomenon you see everyday of people being exposed to the magic spell of www and smartphones creating a circle around them and stealing their attention. Humans are turning into minds in a online-chain where the search engines are walking them as dogs.

The magic circle is a gate, a door or a portal into another dimension, state or level of awareness. It opens you up to things you normally are not in contact with. It is the magic gate to all possible possibilities.

The circle is also what defines and makes boundaries, making clear what is you and what is not you. At the same time it opens you up to the you to be, the higher you, the higher self or your inner master or spirit.

It represent the microcosmic-you as a reflection of the macrocosmos. You as a human, A-dam is the being that carries A (Aleph) in its blood (Dam), A-dam. Aleph represents God or the paradox of All and Nothing. The universal man Adam Kadmon (macrocosmos) is represented in you (microcosmos) as you are becoming one with the image of God. The magic circle helps you to create or manifest the you to be, manifesting the future now.

As the new manifest the old disappears, you learn to let go of the past, let go of what you do not need, to throw away garbage that is holding you down or to detox your system, to purity, fast and rise your vibration. In the same way as the ouroborous transforms its lower parts by eating its tail. The centre of the circle is like the top of a cone, from the top pure light, and water flows down or out to the periphery enlightening or purifying the whole circle (remember this when you read about the first part of the name Jeru-salem).

The magic circle is not only a new beginning it is a cleanser and eraser of the past. When things are collecting and obstructing your life it helps the flow of circulation so you can let things go.
This process was associated with some grief, the sadness of the past as we let it return to the nothingness of being eliminated from our lives.

In the overwhelming chaos it both gives you energy to let go as well as to stay centred. One of the best things you can do in chaos, challenges or when overwhelmed is to look within and reconnect with your centre. If you give your self time to create a magic circle it is even better. Then you can easily make a magic change in your life.

The magic circle exchanges lies with truth, chaos with peace, obstruction with flow, and dullness with clarity as it opens locked doors.

Being centred is the same as being in touch with a higher holon, a bigger wholeness. The degree of harmony with the higher unit you are a part of can be described as your degree of holonity. The highest degree of holonity is to be in contact with your inner centre that connects you with the centre of the higher holon.

Through these aspects the magic circle connects you with your heart, with the universal love, a spiritual detached love. Your centre, the heart is glowing like a fire, like a pump that streams vital warm blood to the whole body, as a bodily analogy to your feeling of love towards the others as brothers and sister.

The magic circle enhanced this state and was a nice synchronicity with the holonistic exploration we did around the same time of the year before Christmas in 2015 with the gemstone Ruby (Here you can read about ruby). The kindness, goodness and love towards others is cultivated with the magic circle. The awareness of brotherhood and sisterhood, the bigger circle you belong to, or even the human race, nature and the earth is cultivated and enhanced by working with the magic circle.

You can create your own magic circle and use it to create the life of your future now. To eliminate what you do not want to be parts of your life anymore and manifest what you want to be parts of the rest of your life.

Sort out, let go, cleanse, throw, eliminate, stop doing, fast and purify with the magic circle. There is no better detox.
At the same time you will feel space for the new, new vitality, inspiration, sublimation, transformation, manifestations and realization of the you to be.

 

SYNCHRONICITY WITH OUR EXPLORATION

Detox and cleaning up
Many participants had started a detox program or some kind of massage to improve the flow of lymph or body fluids and elimination of material that obstructed the body tissues others contemplated fasting.
They also had started or planned to clean out, throw away old stuff and get rid of things.

End and start
Also many had the desire to have a new start in their life or had finally been able to end things that were holding them back.

Clients and work
Also the flow of new clients or doors opening towards new jobs was experienced.

The day of the proving my daughter said she wanted me to see her drawings. We forgot until the next day, it turned out they were all of circles!

The invitation

A friend of mine invited me the same evening to the publication of his new book.
About “tears from a lost past” and with a drawing of the Ouroborus as a dragon eating its own tail.

 

 

Artificial intelligence
The game of the board games Chess had a revolution 20 years ago when the computer program DeepBlue defeated Garry Kasparov. Since then computers have been a central tool to understand and improve players. Today Stockfish is known as the worlds best chess computer, but not anymore!
AlphaZero (Alpha 0 ≈ Alpha Omega?) is an algorithm developed by Google and DeepMind, an artificial intelligence that by just four hours learned all the knowledge base of chess and then crushed the reigning world champion Stockfish. It wan 28 games and draw in the last 72, with not even one loss!
The chess knowledge-base has come to and end, a new more active, ruthless approach where the sacrifice of your own players seems less important turns out to be a wining strategy. One cycle has ended a new is beginning. No humans will ever be able to beat AlphaZero in chess, we would have to wait for cosmic intelligence I presume.

Jerusalem
That the presidents of US declares or accepts Jerusalem as a capital is a controversial thing and happened at the same time as we explored the magic circle. It is the core of the conflict in the region since so many feel an ownership to the old city as the centre of their magic religious circle.

Jerusalem has a central place in Christianity and Judaism and it is also regarded as one of the three holy cities of Islam next to Mecca and Medina. The old town has a Muslim, Christian, Jewish and Armenian quarter. Many regard Jerusalem as their main religious centre and would like every body else not being part of their game and to be outside that circle. That makes it a difficult conflict, that can only be solved by a higher unification in the brotherhood of all mankind.

Jerusalem or “Urusalima” as it was written in cuneiform in ancient Mesopotamian was originally a Canaanite city, but David conquered it. Urusalima probably means “City of Shalem”. This most likely refers to the two Cananite gods Shahar and Shalem, meaning golden dawn and twilight. (Picture from the next day)
IMG_9498
The closeness of Shalem to Salem or Shalom meaning peace has been thought to be the reason that the city kept its name.

Melchitzedec was king in Salem and met Abraham there, turning Abram to Abraham and Sarai to Sarah. This was an end and a new beginning of the people of Abraham. Jews, Muslims and Christian, all accept him as their forefather. Is this common root also the solution of a future unification?

The Hebrew letters of Jerusalem
To understand the semiology of the Hebrew letters see more here: Letters pictograms and archetypes 

Let us look at the two parts Jeru + Salem

Shalom or Shalem has the root-verb שלם (shalem) meaning peace, unbroken or complete and whole it denotes a unity preserving the identity and qualities of its elements.

Yerh or Yeru ירה (yrh) /  ירא (yr’) overlap in meaning by representing something streaming from the centre or top to the periphery or bottom the receives it.

In this sense the name Jerusalem contain the meaning of the magic circle in its core. It has been translated as City of Peace, Foundation of Peace, Possession of Peace, Rain of Peace and we could add Heart of Peace, Centre of Peace or the Magic circle of Peace. Jerusalem has the magic potential to become the spiritual centre or heart that inspires, bless and connects human kind in a coherent complete unified wholeness.

Then we can finally say and God saw it was Good

Post script
Good is Tov in Hebrew (Good or completed) let us end with what Carlo Giuseppe Suarès (1892–1976) says of Tov:
When decoded, TOV therefore expresses the structure of a continual process of building-up of containers, repeating indefinitely the same form. It is a cycle of recurrences which do not change. The endless repetition of the same prototypes, static in potential. This is supposed to be good, in all the translations.
