Andean or Peruvian Opal is considered to be a gift from Pachamama, the earliest Inca Goddess of Fruitfulness and Mother Earth, and is wonderfully soothing for children and animals, and adults overwhelmed by life. It is particularly useful for healing old emotional wounds, from this life or another, bringing an inner peace to carry one through difficult times. Andean stones promote right action for the highest good and stimulate connection with others and communication from the heart. They increases awareness of the need to heal the Earth, and are useful for those who manifest and transmute the changing vibration through their own body. Andean Opal is an excellent journeying stone, highly receptive, inducing a mild hypnotic state for enhancing divination and metaphysical gifts. These stones carry Water energy, and are great for activating the Heart and Throat Chakras.
In the metaphysical world, Opal acts as a prism within the aura, bringing a full spectrum of Light energy to the system, soothing and clearing the emotional body, and boosting the will to live and the joy of one’s earthly existence. It enkindles optimism, enthusiasm and creativity, and allows for the release of inhibitions inspiring love and passion. Opal enhances cosmic consciousness and stimulates flashes of intuition and insight, yet is a protective stone for deep inner work, meditations, and lower world shamanic journeys.
Opal is most known for its ability to bring one’s traits and characteristics to the surface for examination and transformation. Just as Opal absorbs and reflects light, it picks up thoughts and feelings, desires and buried emotions, amplifying them and returning them to the source. While magnifying one’s negative attributes may prove to be uncomfortable, it allows for understanding how destructive these emotions can be and assists the process of letting them go. Opal also illuminates the positive actions and emotions of the self, enhancing the good and true, and fostering one’s highest potential. It is a karmic stone with a reminder that what one sends out will return.
Mookaite is an Australian Jasper of bold, earthy beauty with a fiery fusion of red and yellow energies. It carries an invigorating frequency of strength and vitality, and increases Life Force within the physical body. An Aboriginal Mother Earth stone, it is gaining in popularity throughout the world for its healing capacity, and for empowering one to feel and connect with the electromagnetic energy currents of the Earth. It enables one to utilize these positive energies to increase one’s will and focus one’s personal power. Mookaite promotes an ageless spirit willing to accept change and seek new experiences, and awakens one’s natural instincts in knowing the right direction to take.
Mookaite Jasper is found only in the Kennedy Ranges of Western Australia in outcroppings near Mooka Creek, the area for which it is named. The Aboriginal term “Mooka” means “running waters” and refers to the numerous springs that feed into this area. Mookaite was formed as the skeletal remains of radiolaria, microscopic protozoa with a hard silica shell, were deposited over millennia as sediment in shallow areas of sea beds. As waters receded, the remains were solidified by additional silica carried in groundwater, along with minerals that produced its beautiful combinations of red, burgundy, mustard-yellow, cream, white, brown, mauve and purple.
Use Mookaite Jasper to connect with elemental Earth powers for increasing self-confidence, self-worth, and to realize one’s full potential. Pressed against the upper stomach it can activate the Solar Plexus Chakra, the seat of will and personal power.
Mookaite Jasper is an ideal tool for overcoming procrastination by revealing the true reason for avoiding certain tasks and bringing the motivation needed to resolve the issue. Its constant energy keeps one focused and well-grounded while soothing the mind and quieting distracting thoughts. It is great for focusing on a specific goal or for a motivational boost in the workplace.
Mookaite emanates the energy of animal knowing, or instinct, and may be used to amplify one’s own instincts when making decisions, especially when there are conflicting factors to consider. Hold the stone close to receive a gut answer and go with it, even if circumstances suggest otherwise. Mookaite also brings assistance in “knowing” the right direction to take in physical and non-physical travel.
Mookaite Jasper is a physically stabilizing stone thought to boost the immune system and help counter the effects of aging. It is considered highly restorative for tissue deterioration of the internal organs, and useful in treating cystitis, high blood sugar, and disorders of the kidneys and bladder. It supports proper fluid intake and balances mineral content within the body.
Mookite Jasper is soothing for the digestive system by reducing stress. It also enhances blood purification and is beneficial in healing cuts and wounds. This mineral is also thought to assist in reproduction and aid the body during pregnancy.
Mookaite is a wonderfully supportive stone for going beneath the surface of emotions to find core issues that are creating emotional upset. It allows for a calm and stable frame of mind in which to examine and release these negative experiences, and inspires confidence and the desire for new experiences. Mookaite makes it easier to accept change and to take a chance without fear. It encourages flexibility by prompting one to envision many possibilities in a situation and assists in choosing the right one.
The red energy of Mookaite stimulates the Base, or Root Chakra, located at the base of the spine, and controls the energy for kinesthetic feeling and movement. It is the foundation of physical and spiritual energy for the body. When the Base Chakra is in balance, the physical body gains strength and stamina, and spiritual energy is rekindled in the form of security and sense of one’s own power. It often leads to independence and spontaneous leadership.
Gold and scarlet shades of Mookaite stir the Sacral Chakra, or Second Chakra, located below the naval and above the pubic bone at the front of the pelvis. It controls the flow of energy and Life Force within the body, and the flow of information from the body to the mind and from the mind to the body. Gut feelings, intuition, and other “non-linear” communication comes from this chakra. When this chakra is in balance one has grace, feels pleasure in life, and experiences the flexibility to “go with the flow” and do so in good spirit.
Yellow Mookaite activates the Solar Plexus Chakra, the energy distribution center and the chakra of relationships. This chakra is located between the ribcage and navel, and controls the immune and digestive systems. When balanced physically, we have strength to fight infections, are free of allergic reactions, and are able to use the nutrients we ingest. Spiritually, when the solar plexus is in balance we are free to interpret the world through our own thoughts and emotions and not live in fear of violating the dictums of others.
Mookaite Jasper embraces the power of an ageless spirit, helping one to understand just how closely the mind and body work together. In bringing one’s beliefs about aging and degeneration to the conscious mind, Mookaite imparts the knowledge that change is possible, and that by raising the vibration of one’s thoughts and body, it can greatly reduce the process of physical aging while keeping one young in spirit.
Mookaite also activates the deeper aspects of mind by allowing access to genetic memory, revealing emotional and behavioral patterns handed down from one’s ancestry and allowing one to release those patterns so future generations need not repeat them. It is an ideal stone for expectant parents, as it can facilitate intuitive communication with their unborn child.
All Jaspers provide a calm, harmonious energy for meditation. They are ideal for grounding and centering at the beginning of a ritual, and ease the transition to a meditative state. Mookaite Jasper is particularly conducive to awakening one’s true spirituality, and for increasing revelations and realizations during meditation. It supports alternate-life work and allows for clearing unhealthy patterns from one’s genetic code.
