Opalite

Opalite – “She was like the moon….

Part of her was always hidden” (Dia Reeves)

Light reflective stones act as gentle guides, shining a light on our steps and shepherding us on our life journey.  Opalite is one such stone, igniting feelings of optimism, enthusiasm and creativity.  It is a stone of renewal, enhancing our cosmic consciousness and stimulating our intuition.

Opalite is known as ‘The Eye Stone’ or ophthalmos, or ophthalmius which explains the modern word ‘Optician’. Like all light reflecting stones they help illuminate our path and guide us on our life journey.

It illuminates our positive characteristics and emotions helping us achieve our full potential. Opalite jewellery reminds us of the moon – full of energy – sometimes bright, sometimes shaded depending on the light. It is worn as a reminder to reflect our true selves to the world.

Opalite captures feelings and buried emotions, reflecting them back into the light where they may be dealt with safely and dissolved thus helping us achieve our full potential.

Opalite is a beautiful stone if you are going through difficult periods of transition in your life, moving house or job. There are many sides to life. Status quo’s can become jeopardized and bumps in the road rob our peace of mind. But Opalite is a very stabilising stone making it a perfect partner to help you through these transitions and situations requiring change and adaptability. It stabilises moods and helps overcome fatigue and anxiety. It assists in all kinds of metamorphosis, helping you to accommodate the change, become more adaptable and emerge like a butterfly from its cocoon, lighter, brighter and full of zest for life.

There is no need to hid behind a persona that you think others will find more acceptable, for the real you is far more beautiful.  You are not your personality, nor your job, qualifications or achievements. You are not your successes or failures or any other earthly thing.  You are far more noble and precious than anything you can possibly imagine.

We are all moons of many faces. The moon is like a wise old sage teaching us to “be” and reflect energy of a bigger force.  It is the sun of the night.  A reminder that in the midst of the darkness, a path of light will always exist.  Only those willing to walk through the dark night will be able to see the beauty of the moon and the brilliance of the stars.

Light has significant spiritual meanings. The moon waxes until it is full and bright.  Once it reaches there, it begins to darken itself part-by-part, by each passing day until it is completely invisible.  We also try and bury our insecurities, negativity and agony to make them invisible.  The Moon teaches us to be beautiful despite being imperfect in appearance.  It teaches us to be cool and calm.  It inspires us to grow and regrow.

The waning of the moon symbolizes the process of detaching oneself.  Shed your past.  Every new day brings an opportunity to pick yourself up and scale a new peak.  Just as our eyes absorb light and reflect it back, so too does Opalite.  Despite the vastness of the moon it is reliant on the sun to reflect its light onto the earth.

Opalite reflects our inner selves. The mysterious Alchemy of our souls makes it in constant search for balance. It symbolises balance and harmony in our relationships with others helping us to reflect our true nature and shine brightly through dark times.  The moon glows softly while the sun burns bright, one is nothing without the other yet both exist together in perfect harmony.

Wear this crystal as a reminder that your current conditions do not determine your life.

When you wear Opalite crystals, imagine yourself surrounded by the warm soft blue light of Opalite.  Feel yourself bathed in this healing energy until you imagine nothing but pure light.  Let yourself be free of the restrictions that you have placed upon yourself.  You are a beautiful soul; perfect just as you are, so let your inner light shine through.   It is time to free yourself from this illusion that prevents you from being all that you can be.
