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.

Peridot (Chrysolite) 8. th holonistic gemstone exploration – Andreas N. Bjørndal

The 24. th of September 2015 we explored the gemstone Peridot

800px-Peridot2

Peridot was earlier named Chrysolite. Chrysolite has confusingly also been used to name other stones and this name has hence been abandoned. Peridot is the crystalline part of the stone Olivine.

It is a green stone a Silica dioxide with Magnesium and Iron content. The old Egyptians got it from the island Zagbargad, (also called Topaze or St John´s Island). And the stone was often confounded with the more famous green gemstone Emerald (We explored emerald in the spring 2015 – read here).

Peridot has also been called Evening Emerald and Crusaders Emerald, since the crusaders brought it back with them.

The holonistic exploration of Peridot revealed its fine qualities and subtle nature.

Lightness as opposed to materialism or gravitation
It has a lightness that brought us into a state where the hold of gravity and the earth felt like it disappeared. It felt like this heaviness called gravity swiftly evaporated and was instantly gone.

1024px-Peridot_olivine_on_basalt

Peridot lifted us up to a higher state where we felt nothing material holding us back or restricting us. This was a state where each of us merged into a higher unit, a higher whole, a higher holon. Peridot created a state where nothing anymore was isolating us or making us feel estranged from this higher unity. We were left with a peaceful energetic feeling of acceptance and presence.

The lightness in Peridot also easily dissolves what holds you down or keeps you stuck in the past, it makes you let go of the past disagreements, making it easier to move on.

If you are stuck in material possessions it makes you understand that we in reality own nothing. All we say belongs to us has sooner or later been taken or given from the external or internal world

If you purchase expensive things Peridot might even leave you with a feeling that it was completely unnecessary, or even like you regressed back to the material world.

The real reality – the origin of it all
What is not real, in the sense of being close to the source of creation, coming from the spiritual inner life becomes unimportant or even meaningless under the influence of Peridot. Through this connection with the real source Peridot helps you to see the limitations in the ordinary perspective most people have in the modern world.
It makes you question materialism, the academic approach, the flat digital world, or any other superficiality.

Modern research seems to have become a golden calf, a new religion, a scientism. The struggle towards objective truth has resulted in a chaotic cacophony of fragmented facts. To make sense out of them, you again need to introduce the subject. Let me explain.

Take a substance like coffee and look at all the research you can find, and ask yourself if you got much wiser? Ask if there are other ways of knowledge that would give you a deeper understanding of coffee? (This blog is dedicated to exploring one such approach, the holonistic way to knowledge). In the modern world experience has lost its value, it is subjective. But if you collected the experience of 20 people drinking coffee, you might get as valuable information for the importance of coffee to your life – I promise to write a blog on that. If you experience the deeper state, the real state that Peridot takes you too, you have to use your subject and you realize the limitations of any objective approach.

The original real world has lost its value for many people today. In cyber you can fly and transform things. You are a flat-screened magician. Many people and particularly young people are lost in the cyber world. (Read more here Which world are you living in?).

Peridot like all gemstones connects you with a deeper reality, a fundamental energetic state, that has been called the world of fire, or Atziluth by the Kabbalists, it is a region of reality where creation is constantly created and sustained. If this region stopped emanating all the rest would disappear according to Kabbalah. It is a region of such stability that from the earthy perspective, past, present and future seems unchanged.

This is reflected in the gemstones. Many gemstones have this ability to connect you with this realm were you realize that the future to come is already there in the past and the present. You reach a realm were you are in a state like a crystal lattice were all direction are just repeating the same. You just are!

There is no change or causations or motion here. It is just pure being. In this state, possessions, academic knowledge or flat digital reality are all extreme reduction and illusions and become thin as paper, superficial, fragmented, short lived and volatile. This explains why you feel the hold of gravity swiftly disappearing. Or why possessions of purchases feels like a regression.

Love for others
It connects you with the future by transcending the limitations of the ego and making an awareness of the group-soul, giving it a place in your life. Making the group soul live in you. Life is alive, life is exchange, and what kind of exchanges you have with other decides what parts of yourself and others you give life to. Giving life to the group soul is acting out the benefit of a bigger whole.
Periodot lifts up your exchange with others to a subtle level, where you use the best in yourself, where you give a gentle touch, a lovely smile of support, a gaze of inspiration and admiration of the spiritual aspects of your brothers and sisters of humankind.

Peridot makes you aware of the care and love for others, it brings life to the connections with the family, with your beloved, but also broadens the circle of loved ones to include people from the periphery.

This also explains how, when conflicts or disagreements are stuck, peridot helps to dissolve, letting go and transforming the situation to create a new future with increased freedom and care by letting go of the small circle and swopping to a bigger where your ego is less important.

With Peridot you see the best most spiritual or the potential in others and you approach them with the most subtle and spiritual aspect of yourself. You become a blessing to others under the influence of Peridot, even your gaze carries the blessing of the spirit.

Flow with the genuine
If you are stuck, Peridot helps you flow again, it eases bowel movements, digestion as well as the flow of vitality, energy and spirituality. It makes the water flow. With Peridot you flow smoothly and harmoniously through situations that earlier were challenging or kept you stuck. It reconnects you with the original belonging and love to all human kind as well as life on earth and all the beings in the universe.
It makes you genuinely understand how we belong together, and hence the connection you now feel is real, truthful and congruent. It takes away any feeling of shame or not accepting of yourself or others, it brings you closer to the truth.

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

Skjermbilde 2015-12-07 kl. 13.21.52

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

 

THE HOLONISTIC KNOWLEDGE

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.

Sea-water
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.

Hesed
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.
