ASIACT Astrology - September 2007
Olive is made up of primary yellow and secondary green: it creates the bridge between the yellow of the solar plexus and the green of the heart carrying the messages of both. On the body it radiates from the area covering the diaphragm: a shelf of muscle extending across the bottom of the ribcage without which the breath would not be possible.
The air that we breathe, whether we are aware of it or not, connects us to those we may refuse to befriend or the existence of whom we may not even acknowledge. The winds carry the same air around the globe as if to mock our national sovereignties and exclusiveness. It circulates as oxygen within the depths of us all and without it there could be no life. Breath has no form and in many languages, the words that referred to breath in time lost their earlier meaning and took on the meaning of spirit (pneuma, atman).
Becoming aware of our breath brings us into the timeless present – it takes our attention away from the jungle of our mind and carries us into our own heart space. The keynote for Bottle 101, Archangel Jophiel, pale blue/pale olive green says it all: The way back to the garden of the heart. The opening of a new level of being.
Applying the substance in any of the five bottles that contain olive could support us to witness our own breath, our spirit, our consciousness. It transports us to the dimension of formlessness and connects us to our feminine intuitive.
Only forms can be known and yet without the formless dimension, the world of form could not exist. With each conscious in-breath we let in life, with each out-breath there is the possibility to let go of our attachment to our form identity.
We emphasize our form-identity by demanding recognition and becoming angry when we don’t get it, by impressing others through possessions, good looks, status, by taking things personally, by feeling offended, through futile complaining…….the list is endless.
The message of Bottle 102, Archangel Samael, deep olive/deep magenta, that came into being in September 2001 shortly after the twin-towers cataclysm, is that we need to re-assess our relationship with the material world, the world of form. The shade in the top fraction is unique in the Aura-Soma range – the dark so obvious in the conscious mind. De-emphasizing who we are on the level of form is a way of generating consciousness and discovering the power that flows through us when we are able to die to who we never were. We are beings of light that inhabit material form.
By enhancing our awareness of our indwelling spirit, Olive allows us to enjoy life, to feel an inner connectedness with other beings as well as nature. We birth our self into a fresh, new and alive world.
|Life is a breath of fresh air.|
