Attributes: Opal is a delicate stone with a fine vibration. It enhances cosmic consciousness and induces psychic and mystical visions. Stimulating originality and dynamic creativity, it aids in accessing and expressing one’s true self. Opal is absorbent and reflective. It picks up thoughts and feelings, amplifies them, and returns them to the source. It is a karmic* stone in that, when properly programmed, it makes you unnoticeable or invisible. It can be used when venturing into dangerous places, and in shamanic work where stealth is required.
Psychologically, Opal amplifies traits and brings characteristics to the surface for transformation. Enhancing self-worth, it helps you to understand your full potential. Mentally, Opal brings lighteness and spontaneity. It encourages an interest in the arts.
Emotionally, Opal has always been associated with love and passion, desire and eroticism. It is a seductive stone that intensifies emotional states and releases inhibitions. It can act as an emotional stabilizer, but the stone may scatter energy and the user needs to be well-centered before using Opal to explore or induce feelings, or to have other stones standing by to aid integration. Opal shows you what your emotional state has been in the past, especially in other lives, and teaches how to take responsibility for how you feel. It encourages putting out positive emotions. Wearing Opal is said to bring loyalty, faithfulness, and spontaneity, but may amplify fickleness where the propensity is already present. Opals can be used to send healing to the earth’s energy field, repairing depletions and reenergizing and stabilizing the grid.
Healing: Opal strengthens the will to live. It treats Parkinson’s disease, infections, and fevers and strengthens memory. Purifying the blood and kidneys, Opal regulates insulin, eases childbirth, and alleviates PMS (use dark colors). This stone is beneficial to the eyes, especially as an elixir.
