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.

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.

Ruby – The 11.th holonistic gemstone exploration – Christmas 2015 – by Andreas N. Bjørndal

We explored Ruby just before Christmas 2015 – a perfect timing!

Skjermbilde 2015-12-17 kl. 13.11.43

Ruby and fire
Synchronicity can be a wonderful experience, an experience of coherence. The coherence of Ruby and Christmas became clear to us as we performed the holonistic experience of Ruby on 17 of December 2015.

Ruby took us to a warm cosy place as we approached the darkest night and days of the winter. It made us think of the state of the foetus lying in the warm belly completely united with the mother, or a state like sitting in a small cosy cabin in the middle of the ice cold snow laid mountains in the dark winter night while enjoying the warm heat from the fire place and the warm feelings of closeness to the loved ones or even a deep unconditional love to the whole human kind.

Sitting there looking at the fire place, you see the black or charcoal grey surface of the wood logs hiding the radiating heat and warmth that connects all the logs and warms up the whole room and the whole cabin. As you see beyond the black grey surface you realize that the heat on a deep level has the same source, it was already connected. Let us explore.

The source of fire
The heat and light from the wood logs is the sun returning and rejoicing in its regained freedom after being structured into the wood, the spirits from the sun penetrate every aspect of the wood. Science reduces this magic process to photosynthesis, but it is more than just chemistry. What to us seems fragmented, is deeply connected, it is the same spirit coming forward with different aspects. Even all the suns (e.g. stars) radiate from separate spots. Despite the enormous distance between them the radiate the same creative force, the force that started in the Big Bang. All stars are deeply connected, and all the heat from the fire place is the same, manifesting through each log of wood.

It is this deep connection that we do not see, but we can resonate, that we start to realize as a direct experience under the influence of Ruby. You get reconnected yourself with the source of life and love and light.

Ruby warms up our heart and soul and reminds us of the affection and love we have to the closest circles, or family and friends, but it goes deeper and deeper and carries the gift of uniting with all human kind, all living beings and the whole universe.

Ruby is the perfect gemstone for Christmas, with its red colour and the focus and deep connection to the beloved friends and family as well as the love, care and benevolence for everyone.

As we aim to understand Ruby in a holonistic way the core can often be easiest understood as a polarity. In Ruby the polarity is between being frozen out into the cold or completely accepted and warmly included as your closest family.

This split also tells us that Ruby takes away the illusion of being excluded, separated, being out in the cold, being dead, or isolated. It does this by connecting us to what is behind, what was before and what is beneath.

Aker – he who is beneath
In isolation or the cold of the winter, in the darkest of nights Ruby reconnects you with the heat that created us all. The heat that still is there in the sun, in the centre of the earth as well as in the bone marrow. The bone marrow is the source of the red blood that gives us life and connects all the cells in our body. Beneath all that is manifested there is the same source of fire, of life and heat. This is the warmth of love that connects us all, the creative fire of the spirit.

This internal persistent warmth reconnects you with the inner world, the world of dreams and of spirit. It reconnects you with the fire of the spirit, and also gives you strong vivid dreams. What seems to be darkness has a hidden fire within that Ruby helps you to remember. It could be the night where the treasure of the dreams come forward, it could be the isolation where the deeper connection to human kind is revealed, it could be the darkest nights of the winter where the inner rebirth of the spirit, the true meaning of Christmas is given as a gift.

Ruby has the ability to show you eternal life where death seems present, to give inner warmth when you are alone in the cold, to remember the intimate love for your closest when the daily routine is killing the relation, to focus on forgiveness and generosity rather than obstinate stubbornness, to focus on the importance of being present in the moment when you encounter fellow humans instead of keeping running and already being on the way to the next step.

Ruby reminds you of the deeper things, the more important – the things under the horizon, that which is beneath, behind and before.

Imagine a gently blow on the wood log and the burning fire reappears with its redness and radiating heat and you have a good picture of what Ruby does. It reconnects you with the source and it also helps the true you appear where you might have retracted or hid in the darkness.

This is the time of the year where the year comes to and end and a new year is about to start. The theme of death and rebirth also came forward in our exploration. Christmas is the birth of Christ, as the old years is fading and a new is born.

The ancient roman God Janus, the two faced God has give the name to doorways (januae) and archways (jani) as well as January. In old Rome Janus was invoked as the first of any gods in regular liturgies. He represented the beginning of all cycles (day, month, and year). He was celebrated on January 9, the Agonium.

His tradition probably arrived from Egypt and the God Aker. Aker was the God of the horizon. He was called “He who´s beneath” Akes was represented as two lions facing opposite directions. One lion was representing yesterday (duaj) and the other tomorrow (sefer).

Skjermbilde 2015-12-24 kl. 11.34.30

At the point between the last year and the year to come, at the point where the manifest disappears into the night of the un-manifested to reappear again, we find Aker.

Aker was first depicted as the torso of a recumbent lion with a widely opened mouth. This reminds us of Janus and his association with doorways and archways. Here at this point is the wide open mouth, the gate to the other side. In summer and light all is about the manifested external world, in the dark of the night or the winter we are at the closest to the open mouth, the gate to the other side ”He who´s beneath” as the name Aker signifies.

This is an important key to Ruby but also an aspect of many gemstones, the ability to connect you with a state where there is no past or present, where there is just manifested potential, the potential behind all creation. A state before things are split into before and after, heat and cold or any other polarity, a state where the female and male aspects of every human being are still one. As you re-enter the connection with your own spirit, you also reconnect with your anima or animus, you become aware of the unconscious and the two aspects of day and night unite in you.

Ruby connects you with this state deep beneath where you also reconnect with those that has passed to the other side, it reunites you with the loved ones that has tread out of the time. It puts you in a state where you find peace with old enemies, where you forgive those that has trespassed or done you harm. If you live in a relation where things have become permanently frozen or become blocked between you and your partner, brother or sister, parent or child, neighbour or college or any other person, Ruby reminds you of the warmth that was and helps you blow on the wood log and find back to tender love and care.

Where you are stuck, rigid, blocked or obstinate it makes you again open up, feel the warmth, connection and flow.

In this time of Christmas Ruby remind us all of the gift of reconnection, of opening the gate to the original love that connects us all
