Indi­ca­tions—feeling unpro­tected and vul­ner­able; too easily stim­u­lated by the ener­gies of others, regard­less of their intent; unsure of one’s bound­aries; unable to claim one’s own space; feeling chal­lenged by the environment.

Healing Qual­i­ties—brings strength, clarity and def­i­n­i­tion to the auric field; acts as a pro­tec­tive filter that encour­ages us to relax ener­get­i­cally, espe­cially in the heart chakra area, thereby enhancing our ability to receive love and sup­port from the environment.

This gem elixir addresses feel­ings of vul­ner­a­bility. It is espe­cially helpful for those who feel threat­ened by other people, stressful sit­u­a­tions, or by the envi­ron­ment in general.

The degree of vul­ner­a­bility we feel is directly related to the integrity of our energy field, which can be com­pro­mised by past trauma and injury. Cov­el­lite works to rebuild the energy matrix in the areas of the aura that have been the most impacted, so that instead of feeling vul­ner­able and reacting defen­sively, we feel solidity and strength.

This essence also enables people to do intense healing work without feeling unpro­tected. For example, removing old cords from a par­tic­ular chakra can lead to major changes in how the person relates to others, and the world, from that energy center. This kind of deep energy bal­ancing, espe­cially when it is spon­ta­neous, can be quite uncom­fort­able until it is fully inte­grated into the phys­ical body.     Cov­el­lite facil­i­tates and quickens the inte­gra­tive process by bringing that part of the field back into bal­ance and har­mony with the rest.

Cov­el­lite can also be taken for a period of time to strengthen the energy field before planned surgery or healing work is to be done. This will make the work easier and the recovery quicker.

If healing work was done in the past and didn’t inte­grate prop­erly, or if there was a trauma in an area that didn’t fully heal, then this essence could be used to strengthen that area to pro­mote more effec­tive healing and inte­gra­tion with the work that will come after.

The Story of Steven (Part 1 of 3)

@buttercup89 said:
How long do you think Rose carried Steven for? Do you think she carried him for less than 9 months, because she had a superior gem form? Or do you think it took longer than 9 months, since this was something completely new and alien to her?

I’ll be honest and say that I’m geeking out as a Med student, and I’ve been thinking about this ask for a long time because I wanted to be as certain as possible about the things I was going to say. 

[Small warning ahead for those who aren’t fond of med-talk and foetuses] (though I won’t go too deeply or graphically into either)

So in this series of posts, let’s talk about how Steven was conceived, carried, and came to be. I want to start with what we do know about conventional pregnancies and also about the lore surrounding Steven’s birth, and then look at the gaps before filling them in and why it’s narratively significant that they’re filled in that manner.

1. Steven was not conceived the way other human beings are

The way human conception occurs is this: two gametes (the sperm cell and the egg cell) fuse, in a process called fertilisation. They are united into a single cell and this single cell continues to rapidly multiply until it becomes a mass of cells. Whether fertilisation happened in vitro or in vivo, this mass then ends up in the uterus, where it can implant and grow. Eventually that mass of cells forms a spinal cord, then the other organs, then after a some weeks, it has a recognisably human form.

My point is the discrepancy at the very beginning. It is very likely that Steven did not start out as two gametes because they would hav to both be organic matter for fertilisation to occur. Why do I say that Rose’s gem “cell” could not have fused with Greg’s human one? Because of the lesson we learned in We Need To Talk. Humans and gems can’t fuse. Steven is the first of his kind to fuse with gems and humans. It’s the significance of having a human-gem hybrid serve as a biological and metaphorical bridge between two species that I’m pointing at here.

The point of Greg and Rose’s story was that they couldn’t fuse the way humans or gems were able to. And that was okay. 

2. Steven’s conception was a narratively significant “new fusion” that was previously unheard of

Because here is another undertone of the show. What is fusion? Fusion is the physical manifestation of a relationship. That is, when two gems fuse, they are showing not only their totality but also what they are when they’re together. That is why even gems who absolutely loathe each other can fuse as long as their psycho-emotional states are in-sync (Lapis and Jasper in Super Watermelon Island). Hating each other is a kind of relationship, just as much as Garnet’s relationship of love is. 

In the same way, producing another human being is more than just a combination of its biological parents. A new person is free to assume an identity and make choices, in the same way a fusion is. All the fusions we’ve seen in the show have had their own personalities, their own abilities, and while they borrow from the aesthetics of their components, they have their own unique style and theme music that allow us to identify it as theirs.

That leads me to Steven. Greg and Rose couldn’t fuse because there was nothing biologically similar in their makeups. In the same way Greg and Rose couldn’t have conceived Steven in the conventional human way. There was nothing for Greg’s organic matter to interact with. 

Suspend for the moment that Greg’s organic matter could bind to light and to engage the idea that Rose could have shapeshifted an ovum, yes, she could. But that cell would have still been a part of her. It would still be hers because shapeshifting anything is a conscious and continuous effort that wears out the gem. That means everything that would come out, each division of the cell, that would be Rose’s action, always controlling it. And we know very well that Rose wanted to give others choices, and I feel that would be especially true of her son.

At the same time, the genetic information in gems isn’t transmitted through their bodies. If I took a cell from a person, that cell would have a nucleus which contained our complete genetic sequence (even the parts that don’t get coded and expressed). It’s not the same for gems. Rose cannot transfer her genetic information through her physical form alone. All of that is in her gem.

It is the gem that Rose needed to pass on to Steven, and not something that was found in her physical form, which is only a projection of manifested light. Rose’s goal in this case would be to allow Steven’s human form to grow while at the same time receiving genetic information from her gem. This way, he wouldn’t be a human being with a gem slapped on, but have the gem-etic information etched into his very genetic identity.

One other problem is that Greg’s sperm cells would have all been haploid. That is, at the end of Meiosis II (cell division for the gametes), the cells divide one more time and the genetic information they carry gets halved. This is because conventionally, the other half of the information would come from the other biological parent, and the zygote would be a diploid cell carrying a complete set of genetic information. This happens for both the male and female gametes.

3. Steven is not equal to but more than one human or one gem

Star Ruby

(Bad head canon incoming)

Star Rubies are homeworld gems and commanding leaders of each Ruby group. They are created by fusing 6 promising Ruby gems and the essence of a star (which creates the star like marking on their gem). Each Star Ruby is assigned a squad of Rubies to command under Blue Diamonds order.

Her personality is similar to other Rubies, hence that are fused together. Standard emotions can sometimes run hot. Anger, selflessness, and cockiness to name a few.  

Su theory

What if Rose is Lion? What if she used part of her gem magic/essence to become Lion?

We still don’t know what the thing in the bubble is. It could be part of Rose. Lion is a lot like the crystal gems and holds Rose’s most treasured items in his mane. He has something to do with Rose since he knew where her armory was and I’m sure we’ll find out more about Rose/Lion in the future.

Featured Gem Essence  from Alaskan Essences, Inc.

Mol­davite

Keywords - Grounding, Guidance, Higher Self, Isolation, Perspective

Color - Trans­parent Green

Cor­re­la­tions - 4th, 6th Chakras, Spir­i­tual Body

Indi­ca­tions - caught up in the dual­i­ties of here or there, now or then; going out of the body for infor­ma­tion rather than staying present to receive it; feeling sep­a­rate and out of touch, especially with the higher self.

Healing Qual­i­ties - con­nect­ed­ness; helps us stay present in the body, in the moment, and access the infor­ma­tion and per­spec­tive we need to better express our earthly ­poten­tial; an ener­getic window to ­uni­versal per­spec­tive and higher dimen­sional reality. 

Mol­davite con­nects the heart with infor­ma­tion and energy that the soul needs to func­tion in a phys­ical body on this planet. It helps us con­sciously syn­the­size this infor­ma­tion into the body so it is better under­stood and of prac­tical use. Mol­davite also ener­gizes the 4th and 6th chakras, which increases visual acuity and links our vision and heart energy with Source.

This essence is good for those who have dif­fi­culty con­necting with cosmic sources of guid­ance within them­selves, and who think they have to ask someone else to get this kind of infor­ma­tion for them.

The value of such infor­ma­tion is height­ened when it is dis­cov­ered within the body because we then realize that we have access to every­thing we need without going any­where. As we become more prac­ticed in this process, we begin to have a more grounded sense of empow­er­ment, so when­ever the need for insight or clarity arises, there is con­fi­dence and knowing that the answers will be there.

Mol­davite also helps us stay in our bodies after we get infor­ma­tion from non-physical sources by grounding the energy that is car­rying that infor­ma­tion more deeply into the body. This enables us to take direct action based on what we receive, which com­pletes the cycle.

Steven Universe Theory: ~"Diamond Authority"~


***SPOILERS PRESENT***

(forgive me guys this is a long one)

Remember the episode “Keep Beach City Weird”? Remember how Ronaldo was completely insane? Well, at the very end of the episode, he says a few things that could actually be really important….


First, he starts shouting about “Polymorphic sentient rocks!”. Which, is literally the nutshell definition of what the gems are. Their real essence resides in their gems, while their bodies are just “illusions” that can change form. So that was the first thing he said that caught my attention.

Here’s the video where he says this: http://theweeklywheatley.tumblr.com/post/108021533249/i-bet-i-know-why-pearl-garnet-and-amethyst-dont

Second, he starts talking about how these polymorphic sentient rocks want to “Hollow out the Earth“ as part of the ”Diamond Authority”. And that got me thinking….

I think that there is a grand gem government-like structure called the Diamond Authority.

“THE DIAMOND AUTHORITY” 

I started thinking about why Garnet, Amethyst, and Pearl specifically called themselves the CRYSTAL gems. After all, there are other kinds of gemstones. So I did some research… 

Some of the following information I got from tumblr user: cc-da-wolf
(THEY HAVE AN AWESOME STEVEN U THEORY POST CHECK IT OUT .o.)

AMETHYSTS

Amethysts are indeed crystals, with the chemical formula: Silicon Dioxide (SiO2). They are classified under the Mineral Variety. Mineral-like gems tend to form in environments that are free enough to allow them to form  crystals

We now know that Amethyst was “made” by the “bad gems”, on Earth. We can assume that these “bad gems” are not “crystal” gems. Also, the star on her outfit looks ripped, altered. This, however, is not to insinuate that ALL crystal gems are “made”.

PEARLS

Pearls, however, are not crystal gems. They are indeed minerals, but their formation process does not let them grow into crystal-like structures.

Pearl has a DEEP connection to gem culture. More so than the others. This is especially prominent in the Episode “Space Race”. And her hologram  has a diamond on it:


GARNETS


Garnets are part of a family of gems called Neosilicates with the formula: is X3Y2(SiO4)3 . A complicated substance, but they can form as crystals naturally. 

Garnet is complicated. I can’t say too much about her without going into yet another theory. So, I’ll post a link to my Garnet Theory for you guys and things may be made a little more clear. http://corpusheart.tumblr.com/post/109899166910/lets-talk-about-the-garnet-being-a-fusion

ROSE QUARTZ

Rose Quartz. As we have said, Quartz can also form as crystals.

We know that Rose was around when Garnet and Pearl realized that what the “bad gems” were doing was wrong. She is shown in an ancient mural, fighting a diamond-like enemy. And she has a star on her belly.

So lets review:

Garnet: Crystal


Amethyst Crystal 


Rose Quartz: Crystal


Pearl: NOT Crystal (Pearl is the gem who is MOST attached to gem culture)



I’m thinking that their gems not only reflect their personalities, but also speak to who they are in relation to gem culture.I’m not sure if this is a RECOGNIZED different within gem culture (like different classes or whatever), it’s just something I noticed.

THEIR OUTFITS

Their outfits most likely correlate with their identity as the crystal gems. All of the “crystal gems” we’ve seen have had start, while all of the “other” (like Lapis & Peridot) gems we’ve seen have had diamond shapes on their clothing. Amethyst is the only one to have her star as a visible rip. Maybe she adopted this when she became a crystal gem.

These symbols also establish themselves as different from the “bad gems”. Its their identity against an enemy group.

MORE CLUES

1. At one point, we see a mural on this wall. We can see (who looks like) Rose Quartz fighting a sharp-looking opponent. This could very possibly be the gem, Diamond. 

2. Diamond is the strongest gemstone. It would make sense that this particular gem would be incredibly powerful. Powerful enough to be the “Gem President”, so to speak.

“Hollow-out the Earth”

Going back to Ronaldo. Wow. The episode “On the Run” pretty much confirmed that the “hollowing of the earth” part was legit. So, why stop there? Why assume that his statement about Kindergarten was the ONLY relevant one he made? Why not the Diamond Order? It would be weird if only SOME of the main points he made were instances of foreshadowing.  

IN CONCLUSION 

There is quite a lot of evidence to suggest that there IS indeed a “diamond order”. We can assume that it was this order that makes up the group of “bad gems”. We can see that the crystal gems are a minority compared to the numbers of gems that identify with the diamond order (they have advanced equipment “kindergarten”, and even have scouts patrolling random warps ”Paridot”). Pearl may have originally identified with this order before realizing that things were getting too corrupt (thus, the diamond on her holo-form).

I think that Garnet, Amethyst, Pearl, & Rose adopted the name “Crystal Gems” in order to separate themselves from the Diamond Authority. I’m skeptical about whether or not these classifications are actually part of a class system within gem society. 

So there it is. I think there is a diamond order. I think there are signs all throughout the series. I think their outfits, and their gems themselves reflect this. AND THIS IS SO COOL I LOVE THIS SERIES YOU GUYS SHOULD LET ME KNOW WHAT YOU THINK.
