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.

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.

Mastery of life – you are your own “master piece” – by Andreas N. Bjørndal

Gemstones – new knowledge with new methodology

The year 2015 has been an exciting journey into the knowledge of gemstones. We have done some spiritual research and also found some qualities that are common between all gemstones.

Skjermbilde 2016-01-18 kl. 14.09.43

You can look at reality as matter, energy or consciousness. It is not a question of right or wrong, but ability to perceive rather than choice.

From a material perspective gemstones are beautiful, but rare and regarded as very valuable “stones”. Thats it, matter of fact, full stop!

From an energetic perspective they are used to heal, guide and support in the challenges of life. They are regarded as mediators, channels, antenna, receivers and transmitters.

Regarding reality as pure consciousness opens up a world of its own. In epistemology this is the relativistic perspective as opposed to the materialistic or realist perspective.
Here we ask; What is the awareness of gemstones about?  How are they related? How can we connect with them at the level of soul and spirit? What do they tell us, in the sence awaken in our awareness?

To explore this we have combined methods from homeopathy and kabbalah to get a holonistic way of knowledge. This has given us a deeper understanding about the gemstones. Some of the main things we found have been published in the last issue (February 2016) of The Magic Happens Now. You can read about the discoveries here.

Topaz – the tenth holonistic gemstone exploration

On Thursday 26.th of November 2015 we explored Topaz.

Topaz is a gemstone of power, strength and clear borders!

Skjermbilde 2015-12-17 kl. 13.00.41

Topaz gives clarity, strength and peace, it connects you with your inner core, it straightens your back and gives you will power to perform when things are overwhelming or chaotic with too many tasks or if you are a victim of unexpected attacks, confrontations or terror.

It is a good gemstone to connect with in the midst of terror and calamities, when you face struggles that seems overpowering, when things seems to fall apart or you are attacked by destructive forces, or simply situations that needs clarity, strength and focus.

It could be abuse, being bullied or terror attacks. It could be an accident, sudden loss, or panic that something terrible is about to happen. Topaz gives you the inner strength to stay vigilant, strong, centred, focused, clear with good borders and at peace. Topaz makes you act like an example, with virtue nobility and mastery.

Overview and communication
Many of the gemstones have shown us how they come with an inner state of peace and clarity. Topaz also has this calmness. It connects you with a higher perspective so you can see above chaos and stay peaceful, vigilant and determined during attacks. This makes it a good stone when you need to confront, take part in a debate, are in a power struggle with someone or are in a conflict were you need to express something with clarity, peace and determination.

Borders and connections
Topaz gives you strong borders, but can also pull apart borders that from a higher perspective limits you or hold you back. It can also open borders that have made a distance between you and others.

It has been used to give stability, fidelity and ever lasting love in relationships, but also to resolve problems with the closest family and friends.
It can reconnect you with old friends, not necessarily to continue a connection but it will clarify the relation, and leave it in a peaceful state.

Topaz makes you realize that certain borders might be necessary on a lower level even if you open the borders on a higher level. It can also help you terminate a relationship when it is destructive for your further development, leaving it in a determined, clear and peaceful state.

When borders or structures prevent the establishment of a higher purpose, of the real you to be, Topaz will help you establish new structures, even if the consequence will be tearing down something to give place to the new.

To be just is to conduct your life in the right way, manifests justice and to what is right. This creates a correct structure that makes borders towards the unjust or incorrect. Conducting you life in accordance with a higher purpose, will break borders that holds things back, it might threaten structures and persons that then might attack you. Topaz helps you fight the right battles with peaceful determination.

There is a justice in Topaz, that comes forward as a good balance between right or wrong, meant to be or meant to pas, between the constructive or destructive, the attack and protective border, that is resolved in a harmoniously peaceful way.
It takes away the delusion that you are being attacked by evil, terror, destruction or violence, and gives you peace in mind and the perspective that you might even be the strong one, servant of a higher purpose, the one moving barriers, tearing away borders long meant to go.

This strength and power can be scary for many. Topaz helps you to conduct it in a centred, considerate, good and gentle way.

Clarity and emerging
It gives a clarification or purification in the relationship as if the higher more spiritual reality taking hold on you and lifting you up or bringing things into clarity.

Things that are under the surface, in the unconscious or are hidden from you will surface and appear as you become aware of them with Topaz. It is as much you broadening your horizon, your perception, putting light on things that have been hidden in the sub- or unconscious.

It you feel things are hidden from you, Topaz will help things come forward into the light.


Physical aspects

Feeling blocked or closed or open and connected
Feeling centred in the heart

Unease, restless

Sore, sides
As if something radiates out of the belly

Weak – strong
The Sacrum or lowest part of the back gets stronger, pulled forwards, as when the abdominals contract (rectus abdominus) and you push the genitals forward. So it will help for the opposite where your lumbar back is weak and you have sway back.

Icy cold feet


Chemical composition: AI2 (SiO4)(F, OH)2 aluminum hydroxyl fluoro.
The Fluor element could be behind the quality of borders and hardness on one side and invation and breaking old structures on the other side. Experients with Flour containing remedies in homeopathy have this qualities in common.

Topaz comes from Sanskrit “tapas”, meaning “fire”, “austerity” or “discipline”. It comes from the root “Tap” which translates “to burn”. It can be understood as “passion”, “fiery discipline”, “fiery courage” burning away obstructions and impurities on all levels, opening the ground for mastery.
Pliny thought its origins was from, the location where it was found together with other gems in Egyptian times, Topazos Islands.

Prayer to Archangel Michael
One of the participants quoted this appropriate prayer;
Oh Michael, with all my heart I surrender to your protection, to your leadership, so this day may be an image of your will of creating order into destiny (Free translation)

The daily meditation from Omraam Mikhael Aivanhov, Thursday November 26 , 2015
The daily meditation from Omraam Mikhael Aivanhov the same day as wwe performed the Topaz holonistic exploration fitted perfectly with the theme of Topaz:

« Why do so many remarkable people arouse such terrible enmities? Because the dark forces they have expelled from their inner world return to attack them, but from the outside, through those who find their qualities, virtues and strength of character upsetting and disturbing. People who lead an ordinary life, on the other hand, do not upset or disturb anyone, and everyone is happy with them.

It is not easy to confront the outer enemies, but they are less dangerous than the inner ones. With the outer enemies, you have to use kindness, gentleness and patience, whereas with the inner enemies, you require firmness, authority and severity. Unfortunately, most people tend to do the opposite instead: they are patient and lenient towards their inner enemies, so keeping them alive, but they are extremely severe towards their outer enemies, who of course retaliate. So is it surprising if they continue to struggle with inextricable difficulties? » Omraam Mikhael Aivanhov

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.

Skjermbilde 2015-12-24 kl. 11.32.11

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

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

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


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.


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.

Affinity to lungs and upper respiratory track
Constipation, borborygmus, loose stools

Numbness, paralysis or detached
Stuck, constricted, blocked or twisted feeling
Borborygmus, loose stools and overflowing

Reappearing of old symptoms

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



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.

Carnelian – 7. th holonistic gemstone exploration – by Andreas N. Bjørndal

The 27.th of August 2015 we explored the gemstone Carnelian

Skjermbilde 2015-09-23 kl. 11.20.51

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.

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.

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.


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.

Emerald – 5.th holonistic gemstone exploration

The emerald came forward revealing the abundant green vitalizing gifts of life.

As the fifth of our exploration journeys into gemstones (7/5-2015), it confirmed common themes and qualities we did start to see in all the gemstones so far.  But also it gave us its unique qualities as one of the most appreciated gems of them all.


With its graceful gentle but dynamic power Emerald showed it was dissolving the qualities of duty as we see them in the modal verbs such as should, must, would, could, might, into a present state of accepting and flowing with life.

Emerald helps you to make the right priorities in life, so you do not need to regret not having lived at the end of your life or when faced with terminal illness, as cancer. It helps you appreciate and choose the intimate close friendships or relation to loved ones compared to the relations that are defined by duty, responsibility, obligation or commitments based on “shoulds” and “musts”.

This revealed to us its polarity in Kabbalah between Binah and Netzach, planetary between Saturn and Venus or between the Archetypes The Old and The Young Girl.  A polarity that can be expressed with many different words; It is a polarity between the feeling of having limited or unlimited time. Between death and life. Between a closed isolated inhibition and intimate tender loving care. It is the polarity between the old serious duty bound and the young living girl in love. As well as polarity between the authoritarian religious leaders and the inner individual realization of the spiritual world.

Life gives hope, as the  new spring does with its green lush. Hope is like connecting to the life that always is. Hopelessness is being stuck in a dead end road, in a situation that is not nourishing you. A situation that is killing you. Emerald helps you to dissolve that, let it go, let it evaporate as an illusion. You came from a state of life and you are heading back there. What is between is just passing it is not permanent, it is just illusion. With Emerald you can question yourself why you are hanging on to it, and you can let go, you can live again. It even makes you realize that when you stop your life, you live for ever, it is when you die that you stop dying and live a live.

Emerald opens up the heart to humankind and all living beings, it fills you with tenderness and care. It makes you aware of your suffering neighbors in the third world, and as it gives you appreciation of your own manifold blessings it also fills you with the priority of stretching out your hands and giving. It makes you realize that it is more gifts in giving than in receiving, as well as enjoying the blessings of your own life.

Emerald gives a pure, clear etheric  life force streaming through your whole body, your every cell, and particularly the heart and kidneys. But it also makes you accept impurities that are natural and hence delusions.

With its life force it gives you the ability to master and overcome big endeavors step by step when you feel completely overwhelmed by huge impossible tasks or workloads.

When you feel sorrow or forsaken or are missing someone, it gives you the ability to give and hence to open up the limitless source within, and the first to be completed or filled then is yourself.

As nature, is natural, and the word nature means birth, so Emerald gives birth to the most natural in yourself, the life force itself, the real beauty and its connectedness to all living. It transforms you, let you move on when stuck, gives you life when dead, gives you hope when you feel despair, gives you love when you feel isolation.

Emerald lets you give and take on life here and now “Carpe diem

The state and attitude of Emerald is most beautifully expressed in the Prayer of Saint Francis:

Lord, make me a channel of Thy peace;
Where there is hatred, let me bring your love
Where there is injury, your pardon; Lord
Where there is doubt, true faith in you;
Make me a channel of your peace
Where there’s despair in life, let me bring hope;
Where there is darkness, only light;
And where there’s sadness, ever joy.

Oh, Master grant that I never seek
So much to be consoled, as to console;
To be understood, as to understand;
To be loved as to love with all my soul

Make me a channel of your peace
It’s in pardoning that we are pardoned;
In giving to all men that we receive;
And in dying that we’re born to eternal life.

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.
