Ruby – The 11.th holonistic gemstone exploration – Christmas 2015 – by Andreas N. Bjørndal
We explored Ruby just before Christmas 2015 – a perfect timing!
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.
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).
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.

Which world are you living in?
We have three worlds we relate to!
The obvious is the external natural world, were we have all physical things. This is the world we all relate to. Then we have the inner nature we meet when we close our senses, when we dream, when we reflect and have memories, in meditation and spiritual practice. Finally we have the world you are in when you read this, the virtual world of the Internet or World Wide Web, www.
We are drawn between these worlds everyday. Today people spend more and more time in the third www-world. Like a time eating animal it eats up the precious time we have. It has taken a big part in many peoples daily affairs. It even eats up the second world when we are online late nights, surfing on the net rather than spending time with ourselves in reflection, contemplation, relaxation, sleep or meditation. Everything has its pro and cons, it is just to be aware of them.
Is it a coincidence that in the kabbalah the www is the same as 666? The W is V and V is number 6. The number 666 is the number of the beast in the apocalypse. Is the Internet a time eating beast? And what is time? Time is the only dimension for us that runs through all these three worlds.
Space, time and matter are fundamental. We cannot imagine anything in the natural world without these: space, time and matter. In the two other worlds matter is not so important, even if the www is as yet dependent on hardware. Some people would say dreams depend on a brain, but matter is not what we primarily associate with dreams or web surfing.
Matter is primarily the realm of our bodies and physical things. Space is the realm of the soul, its highest ideal is the vastness of endlessness, while the spirit is in the realm of time, and aspires to eternity. With soul we here think of all that goes on in our awareness: thinking and feeling, memories and dreams. As soon as we talk about sensation we enter an overlap of body and soul. When we talk about intuition and inspiration soul and spirits meets.
The soul is the realm of thinking and feeling and dreaming, it is were we as subjects perceive, meet and process what we experience. The soul is the whole extent of our inner world as we are aware of it. It is what collects all we have done and seen and felt in the vastness of our experience. The soul is the traveller in all these worlds. But as the body is the master of the physical world, the soul is the queen of the dream-world.
The spirit transcends all this. It is connected to something higher than us, something that is there independent of us. It is an eternal centre, the driving force behind all, behind creation and time. You could say spirit is the fire, the initiating force, a radiating sun behind all suns, all galaxies and universes.
From the smallest particles to the biggest galaxies we see how things turn around themselves, electrons spin, the earth creates days and nights by rotation and the galaxy creates galactic years as it is revolving around its centre. This is the realm of the soul traveling through space in cycles of different spans, around and around again and again.
Imagine the toys small children have, the spinning top, where they push down a few times and the spinning top rotates and rotates. The soul is the space, with volume as it makes the circle. Spirit is the pusher, the axis, the driving force, that last for the time it takes or makes.
The virtual world is the like an animal, eating our time, our challenge that we have to take by the horns. Like the knight of the middle ages, we have to surf the net with vigilance and virtue. It can be used for good, but it can also eat the energy, the time the driving force that is pulling us home to the source, and then the internet will slow us down, give us a detour, or swallow us up.
We have to make sure the www does not make us leave the natural world, so that we can have a full and healthy life.
But the world that suffers most is the inner, spiritual world. This is the most important of them all. It is the only world that is eternal. It is there we will complete our final destiny. It is the source of healing and evolution. It is where we can reload our vital batteries, get inspiration, feel connected and learn to master our lives.
Become a web-knight, use the dragon to fly, do not let yourself get confused of the many heads of the troll remember your mission.
