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.
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.
