Carnelian is also a Silica dioxide as some of the other explorations we have done in 2015. In addition it contains Iron. It might just be from the Iron in Carnelian that it connects us with the power and initiative for a new start.

Iron
We explored Iron in 2008 and many experienced a force and energy that was new to them. We were filled with industriousness but the polarity of weakness and despair was also present. There was in Iron a polarity between heat, redness, heaviness, and a foggy feeling in contrast to a cold clear sharpness, and self-assertiveness on the edge of becoming hostile was also present.

Carnelian
With the element of Iron in it we can understand how Carnelian gives you the power to initiate and start your future life just now, how it gives courage and initiative. In Carnelian this is not an egocentric driven force, but a more collective unifying approach opening the heart to connect with a broader group, your crowd, nation or human kind.

When in a place of calamity, struggling, poverty or war Carnelian gives you the power to persist, survive, to find your way or solution. It takes away the illusion of being alone and makes you realize we are together in the same boat. The synchronicity of the refugees over the Mediterranean hit us all during the exploration of this gemstone.

It is a reminder that we are united, we belong together. This feeling of unification is also a feeling that many of the thousands of refugees walking day and night through Europe over the last weeks and months must have felt in the middle of despair. A despair that has made them take steps to open a new door where a new life is chosen. Initiating a new beginning. Also all the people opening there life, home and time for the human kind has opened the door to a new start of a bigger circle, opening their hearts. Many people in many countries share food and water, carpets and cloths. People collect boxes with cloths and toys to support and help people get a new start as they have left all there belongings. Many of them lost all they had in the calamities of war. The loss, or voluntary abandoning a home with its things touched upon another aspect of Carnelian.

Most of us live in illusions of having possessions, having things that belong to us. It could be a flat, a house, a car or ideas, songs or art-work we have created. At one point somebody took it from nature! At some point some human mind got inspired from within or above. All we have are the gifts of nature. It comes either from the earth, the sun or the inner nature. Nothing is ours. It is given to us to take care of, to use with care, respect and gratitude. Carnelian helps us to realise that all those things are not limited to being ours they are there for us all to share.

Carnelian takes away the delusion of possessions. Carnelian warms the heart to a unifying force making us share and stand together. Together we make everybody stronger, we make everybody richer. Together there is plenty for everyone and the heart can rejoice in charity.

It heals the deep sorrow of loneliness of not belonging or not being able to enjoy the goods of life and nature. It creates the awareness and need or earning to unite in a bigger community or group, with the whole human kind or all life on earth. It makes us realise we are one and the same.

When you feel the same love for everybody as for your close ones, you can say you know Carnelian in its full extent, in the debt of your heart.

We always belonged together, but the ego forgot, it took things and said it is mine, my country, my property, my house, my car, my family, my wife, my myself. With Carnelian this “mine” is turned into “ours”, it is helping us let go of what we hold on to as ours, and it is helping us to reconnect with the gifts of nature.

As in all the gemstones there is a silent, peaceful, solid, motionless conviction that the order to be, the order that always was there, is on its way back to what it always was. Carnelian takes away delusion of separation, loneliness and belonging, making us realise we always were a human kind, a family of beloved brothers and sisters. We were always a family where we shared all the riches of nature.

Even war, calamity, loss, accidents and catastrophes will in the perspective of Carnelian be seen as release towards this state of common unity, or extended human family. Carnelian makes you realize that a long history of conflicts and separation is just a process of making the ones of us still holding to possession realize we have to share.

Polarities

As with any substance there were some polarities

Hope – Despair

New/start/future – Old/ending/past

Alone/ego – Community/us

Jealousy – Solidarity

Dry – Humid

Autonomy – Suppression

Control – Let go
At the deepest level Carnelian takes away not only the illusion of the ego or its possessions but also of a homeland or even being an individual person as it opens the door to a bigger holon of being just one of many smaller holons in the brother and sisterhood of man.

For the homeopath

Carnelian with its contents of Iron is an important remedy to differentiate with Ferrum and its salts. The determined perseverance, struggle and even themes of wars and battle are present in both. Where Ferrum is more down to earth, struggling and performing, there is an element of altruism, spirituality and higher purpose that is stronger in Carnelian. With its Silica content from group 14 in the periodic table, Carnelian has the theme of “the door” more present, enabling it to go completely new ways, while Ferrum has the strength (or weakness), industrious, hard working endurance to start but more to take on and carry (ferrum = carry) on to the end.

Sapphire – 4.th holonistic gemstone exploration

On the evening of 9. of april 2015, 75 years on the day of the invasion of Norway by the germans we conducted our holonistic exploration of Sapphire.

Sapphire came forward with a strong sense of perfection, with an eye for the smallest details. On one side we saw an almost rigid crystalline need for perfection, on the other the ability to let go of the fastidious demands and accept things just as they were. People that normally would not go to the office with a spot on their cloths felt themselves at ease presenting themselves with a food stain or two. Or in ways they never would have accepted earlier.

Perfecting and censuring could be said to be two sides of the same coin, or interrelated. A person aiming at perfection or a censorious critical person both needs the combination of objective observation and critical analysis. On one side they need appreciation for a specific shape, form, structure or result on the other an eye for what can be eliminated, adjusted, improved or sense of precision and the ability of cutting away.

This ability requires two archetypes, the archetype “The old” (Binah, Saturn) representing observation, structure together with the archetype “Mature Man” (Gebourah, Mars) representing, elimination and cutting. Together they have a sense of structure and seeing what should be eliminated or modified. Joined they give you the perfect combination for a censorious, critical assessment. Together they give exactness and perfection.

On the other side structure with esthetic sense gives the ability for creating something perfect. Gems are precious stones, and in Sapphire the preciousness seems to be combined with being perfect, being the master, king or guru.

An idealistic aim for ultimate perfection would feel impossible if there were mistakes, traumas, misdeeds or flaws from the past. Sapphire seemed able to resolve such issues through a realization that we came with a sense of perfection and that we will one day accomplish perfection again. In a sense we have always had the matrix of perfection with us, it just seems to be a transit or an illusion that we are imperfect in the here and now. This veil of the manifested reality that makes us far away from our origin or final destination is removed by the gemstones.

All the gemstones we have experienced so far had in common, that they were able to connect us with a timeless state before time and space. This is a state where before and after unites into a crystalline structure where everything is coherently connected. 

In Garnet it was about the illusion of separation with loved ones, and a realization that even the dead are still close. 
In Amethysts it was a sense of disconnection with the highest unity and a realization that we are always one with the Godhead. 
In Jaspis it was about the illusion of separation with your inner autonomy or destiny, and the illusion you had to adjust to others. 
In Sapphire it was a separation from perfection and an illusion of being imperfect.

We experienced that all of them facilitated a connection with a state that could be described as so subtle or primal that it was before separation of time and space, a state that felt like just being, without motion or action, just being as we always were mend to be, or heading back to become again. Almost like in a lattice of a Chrystal were every part is coherently connected or entangled in unity. The one before you above you under you or behind you are all the same as you.

Imagine a guru, spiritual leader a sheik, a king, a kaiser, a bishop, a Khomeini or any other figure of mastery or leadership. His or her idea is to be the perfect leader, like a star or gemstone in the mind and soul of their followers. They have a projection to live up to. But nobody on earth is perfect!

So there would be a polarity of the feeling inside with the external appearance. Imagine a leader being next to perfect, with perfect partner and family, perfect educational and social background, perfect looks, and appearance, a perfect home in a perfect area. Everything is perfect. Can you imagine the pressure and strain one could feel to remain in that perfection? Not to do any mistakes or of the surroundings or his/her family creating a situation that makes cracks in the perfect surface?

Perfection in this sense is static. To evolve you need to get dirt on your hands. What you learn most from are your mistakes.

In the exploration we felt an open mind for change, towards the new. It helped you to let go of the past, to let go of where ever we felt stuck. To let go of your past identity, your past role, your delusion of who you thought you had to be. To be clear, honest and truthful to your self and your identity.

This is like facing the truth. Like standing face to face with the real. A strong feeling of wanting to face things just as they really are, or to have real genuine contact is what we acquired from this gem.

Truth is hidden in the eye, said Omraam Mikael Aivanhov. And many of us felt an affinity for the eye with Sapphire.

Gemstones are created under big heat and pressure.
Many of the participants felt an aggravation from heat, hot spicy food or alcohol together with dryness of lips and skin, with cracking, as well as broken arteries in the eyes or other places. All this could indicate an internal heat, leading to dryness. A pronounced thirst for cold water in many of the participants confirmed that. Heat flushes and burning sensations add to this as well. Also feeling hot with virility, and vitality.

After conducting this experiment we researched some information on the use and application of Sapphire and the resemblance was striking.

Synthetic sapphire is used for shatter resistant windows in armored vehicles and body armor suits. In the “ceramic body xenon lamp”, sapphire crystal output windows are used because they tolerate higher thermal loads. Sapphire glass

Synthetic sapphire as sapphire glass is not only highly transparent to wavelengths of light between 150 nm (Ultra violet) and 5500 nm (Infra red) (the human eye can discern wavelengths from about 380 nm to 750 nm), but it is also extraordinarily scratch-resistant.

So we see her a stuck hard solid substance resistant to scratching and abrasion. With 9 on the Mohs scale, it is the 3rd hardest natural substance next to moissanite and diamonds.  It has an extremely high melting temperature (2030 °C). With its very wide optical transmission band from UV to near-infrared  (0.15-5.5 µm) it become significantly stronger than other optical materials or standard glass windows.

We can sum this up as a clarity or transparent honesty or truth, so you can see things with your eye as they are.
And an identity or perfection that cannot be scratched or broken.

Clear transparent living true identity in contrast with a dead virtual mask as a veil of perfection could be a summary for Sapphire.
