Icosahedron by Andreas N. Bjørndal

We explored the Icosahedron 9.th of march 2017.

Every shape has a quality, an effect upon us and a meaning. Geometry and number are the letters in the language of the Creator!

Skjermbilde 2017-03-20 kl. 19.45.42What is an icosahedron?
It revealed to us an ability to both hold and transcend polarities; letting things float on one side, or being stuck on the other. Being clear, transparent and truthful to oneself on one side or unclear, muddy, holding back or hiding on the other. It´s effects on the kidneys were striking.
Let me explain.

Its association with the water element amongst the old Greece philosophers became obvious to us. Thirst was prominent among the participants. Themes associated with water like flow, clarity and transparency confirmed that too. Also vertigo, foggy, muddy and unclear has a relation to the water element. The kidneys are important when it comes to water in the body.

Many of the participants got a deep desire to sleep or experienced excessive yawning. Even after a good nights sleep some of us kept yawning through out the day. We realized that the icosahedron gave us an ability to load our battery, replenish our resources. You could even say it almost forced us into a reloading mode – time to charge!

Forced to sleep, reload, charge or waking to a new start was a part of the quality of the icosahedron experience. Elements of a fresh new start: leaving the old behind, purifying, cleaning up or putting things in order or sorting out the next step or direction. But also solving a stuck situation of conflict or polarity by taking an approach from a higher, bigger holon by transcending the old approach.

In many ways we could compare the icosahedron with a battery. It has the capacity to hold a polarity, keep it or letting it flow.

From a geometric point of view it is interesting to see how every point in the icosahedron has a polarity. Every triangle has an opposing triangle turning the opposite way (top illustration), every Pentagon the same (second illustration). The icosahedron is full of polarities in its structure: every point (12), every edge (30), every surface (20) and additionally the triangles and pentagons that are opposite also have opposed directions.

A polarity contains a stuck tension, but the surfaces are triangles and they combine five and five together, giving the icosahedron a quality of flow like water. Why? Because even numbers carry the polarity and odd numbers are dynamic due to the lack of opposed tension. The number 3 is related to exchange and the number 5 to vitality. We will soon look into it in more detail. The play between 3 and 5 is not only in the fact that five and five triangles form a pentagon. But also you can see the icosahedron as 3 pentagons (5-angled) “holding hands” or being inter-fused in a circle, their base would form one side of the base-triangle and their “heads” would be the point of the opposed triangle (Illustrated in the animation at the bottom).

We see how 3 and 5 play together. The five´s connects in threes, the threes connects in fives.
The qualitative approach to numbers will read this as a play between the divine (3) and man (5), or exchange (3) with manifestation (5), or flow (3) of energy (5) or exchange/breath (3) of life/vitality (5). Combining these with the holding stuck polarities makes the battery quality of the icosahedron easier to understand.  It has a vital exchanging energy that is kept in a polarity, just like a battery.
The 30 edges adds communication and exchange and the 20 triangles adds the holding quality. (Read more about numbers as archetypes here). The kernel has a structure of 3 Golden Mean rectangles perpendicular on each other, creating the 6 axes that together make the 12 points (2×6, 3×4). The number six is also there in the cross section (see towards the end of the video at the bottom or top illustration). The number six adds the quality of connection to the oppositions.

The kidneys can also be seen as the battery of the body and the revitalisation of the kidneys from exploring the icosahedron was striking. The icosahedron is able to contain a tension or polarity on one side and have an exchange of dynamic energy on the other. Breathing vitality, exchanging energy that it contains makes the icosahedron like a holy grail, a fully loaded battery or a vibrating gem of vitality. In the perspective of Chinese medicine or TCM it strengthens Jing.

Here you can see the construction of the icosahedron and its rotation:



Aquamarine – 9. th holonistic gemstone exploration – by Andreas N. Bjørndal

Aquamarine in short
Aquamarine, like the clear transparent blue sea unites you with an expanded perspective of reality. It calms, sooths and roots you with trust through a connection and perception of truth that is for the benefit of all. If stuck it makes it easier to let go, be it of conflict by having a truthful and benevolent communication, or by making things flow again.

It is a cyclosilicate with Beryl and Aluminium; Be3Al2Si6O18



On the 29.th of October we explored Aquamarine.
This gemstone gave us an immediate feeling of lightness, elevation and expansion. It lifted up and expanded the mind to perceive the real reality from a bigger space of perspective.

It shared with us the experience of how you can contain, surround and embrace a person and at the same time be deeply united within your deeper roots, the very core of yourself. It is like you expand yourself to also embrace the other person, entering a bigger sphere that contains you both. It is like perceiving yourself and the other from a place where you and others are within the same unit. Any intention you have from this state is about what is beneficial for a bigger whole, a higher holon.

When in this state you are resting or seated in a greater awareness both in space and time. You feel you are in the here an now, in the present, you feel you are as much yourself as you are the other. In this state exchanges and activities that define change of time and difference in location become transcended, like they did not happen. Rather than getting triggered in the exchange of words and mimics you are deeply connected within you and the other. There is no need for exchange of single thoughts or ideas when you emerge into this common mind. It is a more quiet peaceful state.

Aquamarine connects you to a place of bigger truth, with pure intentions of goodness and benefit for the All. This is a good state to connect to when you need to tell something sad, bad, critical or difficult to somebody. It is also a good gemstone to connect to when a person of authority might be telling you something about yourself or your children that is critical or an assessment that you could find challenging. Even if you are in court, aquamarine can help to connect you with a state that transcends the dispute and gives you peace of mind, security of a just outcome and a feeling of freedom from the conflict.

In situations where communication has become stuck aquamarine re-establish the flow or dissolves the conflict. It does this by connecting you with something bigger than the single parts in a conflict, a state that represent a higher purpose, perspective or truth. A truth that transcends your own and the others and that has always been there. That gives you clarity of thought and speech.

Aquamarine also helps you to express the truth, to express yourself in a caring but clear and truthful way with a smooth flow. Rather than things becoming dry, constipated, obstructed, tight, tense and full of contradiction, aquamarine gives a lightness, clarity, freedom and flow to everything.

Anything that is stuck, like if you are obstinate, constipated, dwelling in the past, when things seems heavy and challenging, aquamarine helps you to get out of that state, to make things flow, it lets you make a new start. Actually to be more precise it is not a question of restarting but of returning to the original state of freedom and life. This returning is not a regression as you take with you your gained experience, but perceive it now from a state of joy, lightness and gratitude.

Gratitude of being reconnected with the real reality, of being lifted up to a more truthful and peaceful state, of taking good choices with ease and bringing spirituality into the situation and into your daily life as such.

When connected with aquamarine, you find it natural to help friends and family and the people in your life by letting them enjoy the uplifting, by giving them gentle words, you are in a state of generosity and surplus. This also explains how aquamarine dissolves conflicts, tensions and stuck situations.

The name Aquamarine, aqua-marine is water-sea or sea water. It is likely that when it was given name, the name giver perceived its qualities. With this perspective we can understand how things too condensed and stuck, starts to flow, also the vast perspective and feeling of belonging to a bigger unit. The state of transparency, clarity and flowing are all in accord with this. As water floats so does also Aquamarine dissolves illusion that keeps you stuck. It gives you a new perspective that clarifies your mind and makes your speech and communication smooth and flowing.

The flowing, clear, transparent bluish light is common for the stone as for the name it bears.

According to the Kabbalah the qualities of Aquamarine corresponds to the sphere of Hesed in The Tree of Life. Hesed means “loving-kindness” and is associated with Jupiter and qualities like truth, justice, expansion, vision and perspective as well as the colour blue.

We can understand aspects of Aquamarine in the polarity that is between Hesed and Hod, Jupiter and Mercury, Pieces and Virgo or Sagittarius and Gemini or Mature woman and Young boy.

All of them have a polarity between something great expansive and the small parts or fragments, or the perceiver rather than the exchanger.

Aquamarine connects you to the qualities represented by Hesed. Aquamarine makes it easier to reconnect with a higher purpose, meditate, establish a sacred sanctuary in your home, a regular spiritual practice etc.

Instead of being stuck in the fragments of Hod, misunderstandings, chaos and restlessness it reunites you with an expanded perception that roots and grounds you to the spiritual world with truthful, genuine peace.

Gemstones and Atziluth
The holonistic explorations of 2015 has shown us that with all the gemstones you get in touch with a state that is more basic, original or even more static, but it is in a peaceful and expanded way. If you imagine the lattice of a crystal moving up or down, left or right it is all the same, movement does not make a difference. It is like all these states unite into a common state that connects them all, or like being in a state where any motion or activity is a manifestation of that potential you are connected with. Even if minerals are crude, and not so developed as the other kingdoms, they seem to be in touch with a more original state. You could compare it with the paradox of evolution and involution. They are both less evolved as well as less involved. They are closer to the emanation of creation. They still have the connection with the creative fire. This world of emanation the world of fire is called Atziluth in Kabbalah.
