The Tree of Life is one of the most condenced esoteric symbols. It is like a map of the universe or God´s architectural drawing of the spiritual universe.

Some traditions use different terms, so I have tried to collect the main ones making it easier for you to compare and understand.

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.

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.

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.

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.
