Spiritual Healing with Opal

Spiritual Healing with Opal

Metaphysical Properties & Awareness

Many civilizations, cultures, and peoples have used crystals, stones, and minerals for healing and protection, not only of humans, but also for their animals and their environment.

The ancients believed that if a person wore the precious stone which, according to their tradition, was in affinity with the planets and the month of their birth, they would have protection against their enemies, sickness, accident, or even death.

In Medieval times Opal was thought to ward off illness and it was believed could confer the power of invisibility.

Modern Spiritual Interpretation

Opal is an emotional balancer which aids inner beauty and faithfulness.

Wearing, touching and observing Opal helps to increase mental capacities such as creative imagination and other unused powers of the mind. Opal aids in conscious connection with the highest aspects of being, enhancing intuition and the recollection of earlier lives.

Opal strengthens the will to live. It is believed to help cure depression and bring confidence to the wearer.

Wearing Opal is prescribed to assist in healing persons with ailments associated with memory, eye-sight, pineal and pituitary gland dysfunction.

The Balancing Power of Colour

Because Opals may display all the spectral colours they relate harmoniously with all of the body's energy centres or Chakras.

The human body needs all 7 colour-rays to maintain healthy function:

RED, ORANGE, YELLOW, GREEN, BLUE, INDIGO & VIOLET.

The vibrational quality of each colour ray is associated with one or more of the chakras. By using the colour ray that supports a particular charka, balance and harmony can be maintained.

Variously coloured Opals can assist in the healing of many diseases:

Red stones have generally been thought to be remedies for bleeding and inflammatory diseases,to provide a calming influence, and remove anger.

Yellow stones were believed to cure bilious disorders and diseases of the liver.

Green stones traditionally have been suggested to correct diseases of the eyes.

Blue stones are prescribed to both calm spirits of darkness and bring the aid of light and ensure sure-footedness.

 Opals can match the best gemstones, tint for tint, and still find strength for laughter and dancing!

Protective Powers

 The symbol of hope, an Opal is considered to hold all the talismanic virtues of the other stones.

The full spectrum of colours found in multicoloured Opals resonates with all Chakras and by maintaining balance and harmony can help protect the wearer’s physical and spiritual well being.

Opal is a protective stone which can help make the wearer unnoticeable or 'invisible', particularly helpful in negotiating ventures into dangerous places.
