The Story behind the Akaija Pendants

The Message ‘We are One’ written in Megalithic Sites all over the World: The Great Pyramid, Angkor, Easter Island, Atlantis and Aneityum – all connected in the Akaija symbol

by Wim Roskam, Netherlands.

An extremely powerful lightning bolt in 1985 shut down the electric power provision and TV for half of the city Apeldoorn in the Netherlands. Teacher Linda was driving her car on her way home from school as one fork of that bolt struck into the road next to or straight into her car. The Faraday cage of her car had protected her from being killed instantly, but from then on began a period of increasing chronic fatigue against which no medication or therapy could do anything. Linda always referred to that lightning strike as the cause of her complaints.

In 1999 she was diagnosed with cervical cancer. The doctors urged her to have a big surgery, but because a few years prior her brother had died partly due to mistakes made by the hospital she refused all treatments and so she and her love Wim were on their own, trying out alternative therapies. At first things went well, but in October 2000 she got severe bleedings, followed by extreme pain and sleeplessness and hell started for both of them. Shortly before she died in December 2001 she asked Wim what she could do for him after her death and in response he asked her to inspire him if possible. He was an airbrush artist at that time, but not very successful. Later, during the funeral, he spoke a few words that would start a sequence of remarkable events: “My wish is it to meet you more often in the future, and to find together what were are both looking for: To be one.”

When Wim started painting again about half a year later, this went remarkably easy and effortlessly, finally satisfying him with the end-results. But Linda’s inspiration took an unexpectated turn: she suggested to make special ring and for this he had to become a silversmith…

With this education Wim could now materialize the symbol that he had applied on one of the first paintings (Aura Healer, seen at top of article) in precious metal. This symbol was a solution for an ‘old problem’ he had pondered on since a small boy: how can it be that a spiralling telephone wire sometimes rotates clockwise and counterclockwise in the same wire?  

Or: how can you make a left rotating spiral going the other way without crossing the lines or making a U-turn? The solution was to leave the 2-dimensional plane, entering the 3rd dimension.


The design Wim discovered was found while playing with iron wires. This he had applied in gold leaf on the painting Aura Healer, naming it an ‘inversion symbol’.

Some time after that Marianne, one of the therapists who had treated Linda, and Wim started a relationship. In 2005 they discovered that this iron wire object proved to be a very helpful tool in biophoton therapy, which Marianne practised, especially for patients with complaints related to electromagnetic radiation, like chronic fatigue, Linda’s old problem that started with the lightning strike. It was and still is used to treat patients with electrosmog-complaints. E.g. by wearing it they got continuous support from the energy that somehow is conducted through this symbol.

Collegues of Marianne confirmed their findings and Wim started reproducing the ‘Inversion Object’. Linda’s mother said she would ask her ‘guardian angel’ for a name for it. A few days later she was surprised when she literary heard a loud voice in her head saying: “Akaija”. She had no idea where that voice came from or what it meant, but she wrote it down and gave it to Wim, shrugging her shoulder as if to say: “I don’t know… this is the answer I’ve got.”


On the Internet Marianne discovered that ‘Akaija’ is used on a tiny island in the Pacific: Aneityum, the southernmost island of Vanuatu (former New Hebrides). A missionary named John Inglish had documented the language of this island and found that the people living there have 6 different meanings for ‘We’, making a distinction between ‘we two’, ‘we three’ and ‘we all’ and whether or not the addressed person is part of ‘we’ or not. The word ‘akaija’ is used for ‘We all’, including everyone and, as they would discover years later when they visited the island… everything. It relates to the entire Creation.

So from then on the inversion symbol had its name: Akaija.

A few months later in 2006 a numerologist said to them: “Do you know that ’Akaija’ consists of ones only?!” (well… no)
In numerology all characters of the alphabet can be replaced by numbers, so A=1, B-2, C=3 etc. She explained:  A=1, K=11 (numbers like 22, 33 remain intact), A=1, IJ=1 (‘ij’ of ‘IJ’ is the Netherlands variant of the Y. And because IJ=9+10 it comes down to 1 by stack counting) and A=1. You then get: 111111. Summarizing ‘Akaija=We’ and ‘Akaija=111111’ you see a message: We are One.
This definately was Linda’s answer to Wim’s words during her funeral.

Scientific research

In the next years they distributed thousands of Akaija’s and collected many testimonials from people feeling supported by the energy of the Akaija. Some were even cured from complaints they had suffered from nearly all their life.

They asked Hado Life, the laboratory of Masaru Emoto in Liechtenstein, to do a water-investigation on the Akaija. (Unfortunately the photos can’t be reproduced.) The laboratory made no conclusions, only stated that the crystals are “very harmonious”.

In January 2012 more scientific research has done by the International Association for Electrosmog Research – IGEF, resulting in a certificate of approval. The IGEF conducts tests on tools available on the market claiming to protect people against electromagnetic radiation. Among others they use the heart-rate-variability as measuring standard. A healthy heart under normal conditions can easily adapt to different circumstances showing overall good readings. But a heart under stress-conditions like EMF’s shows much more flattened and lower readings, like it is choked somehow. Tests on people wearing the Akaija were in some cases so spectacular that halfway the researcher wrote an email that is quite interesting:
The measurements were more extensive than we are accustomed to, because some of the results were so incredible, that we often had to repeat the measurements.
I’ve just completed a test series with a 75-year-old captain. This war-horse did not believe that wearing the Akaija (diameter 1.9 cm) could have the slightest effect on the adaptability of his heart under various conditions. Last week we conducted the first measurements under different stress conditions. Without the Akaija the measured values were between 40 and 60% of the possible 100%. In this situation 100% is the theoretical maximum value of the skill of the test subjects, to regulate the heart rate and adjust the autonomic nervous system to the stress caused by electrosmog.
Next he worn the Akaija suspended on a cord almost continuously for 4 days. When we then repeated the measurements of his heart rate variability under the same stress situations, three of the readings were above 95%, and the remaining values were all above 90%.
Then he dismissed the Akaija and we repeated the measurements. All measurement values now were between 60 and 70%. If I had not done these measurements myself, I wouldn’t have believed!“

Akaija connected to the Great Pyramid

In February 2011 Wim discovered the website of a mathematician, Jim Alison: “Prehistoric Alignment of the World Wonders”. Jim explains and proofs that some of Earth’s most important megalithic sites are located on a straight line or in math terms a ‘great circle’: the Cheops Pyramid, Machu Pichu in Peru, Easter Island, Mohenjo Daro, Ur, Persepolis, the temple complex Angkor in Cambodja and many other important locations.

It appears that 5 specific locations on this great circle are particularly interesting, because they all are separated 72º longitude (360º / 5 = 72 ) from each other, meaning that every location is precisely 20% apart on Earth’s circumference. They are: the Great Pyramid (the basic ratio of the Pyramid in Sacred Geometry is 72), the temple complex Angkor in Cambodia (consisting of 72 temples), the island Aneityum in the West Pacific Ocean, Easter Island in the East Pacific and the location of an island in the Atlantic Ocean, sometimes thought to be related to the  continent of Atlantis. This island can only be found on an ancient map made by Piri Reis, a Turkish admiral and cartographer from the time of Columbus. This map is particularly interesting because it is at least 500 years old. The red island in the Atlantic Ocean is precisely on the Great Circle.


Akaija and its mirror image

Left you see a left- and a right-handed Akaija. The Akaija is a so-called a-symmetrical design. Let’s say it is left-rotating or left-handed. Maybe ‘right-handed’ is the proper word, but that’s not important for now. Wim made both versions, being each other’s mirror image. Wim wondered if both Akaija’s could be combined into one single object. That wasn’t easy, but finally he succeeded in making double Akaija, consisting of 5 perfect circles in a perfectly spherical design. Instantly visible now is the five pointed star pentagram. This double Akaija also got a name from Linda’s mother: Akaija-Iloa, where ‘Iloa’ means ‘I Am’.

When you interconnect these 5 main locations or anchor points on the great circle over the Northern and also over the Southern Hemisphere, you see the same design: a giant double, earth spanning, 3-D pentagram covering both the Nothern and the Southern Hemispheres, which is exactly the same shape as the Akaija-Iloa!   Wim had made this design already in 2008, not knowing anything about Jim Alison or great circles.







Aneityum island is part of the Republic Vanuatu, formerly known as the New Hebrides. This group of islands was one of the last that was discovered by exploring sailing ships in search for new lands and fortune. When first discovered the population of Aneityum counted 12 to 15 thousand people. Diseases and slave traders rapidly decreased the numbers and when the first missionaries set foot on the island the population was down to 3500 people, and still dropping. In 1960 the population was around 200 souls, though quite many had moved elsewhere. Nowadays the number has risen above 1000.

Unlike on Easter Island, in Angkor and in Egypt, Aneityum has no ancient stone buildings. What makes this location so special is that the descendants are still present, unlike on the other locations where the people presently living there have no direct connection to the original inhabitants.
On Aneityum the traditions (custom or ‘kastom’) and much of the knowledge are very much alive and have survived the influences of the West, be they political or religious.

Because of this discovery, in April this year Wim and Marianne went to the island and met one of the two storytellers of the island: Ruben, but his Aneityumese name is Nerium Tamathui. He is also one of the two holy men. He awaited them on the ‘airport’ of  Mystery Island, a small atoll just in front the main island and together they’ve spent 11 days talking and exchanging information.
Alas Marianne’s condition didn’t allow them to visit all the sacred places on the island, many of which are only accessible on foot through the mountains. 

Neriam Tamathui explained how the government system of Aneityum works, which seems a very democratic system giving power to the people. One morning he drew a sketch of Aneityum (below). Later you’ll see the enlarged drawing with added colors for better understanding.

Government system of Aneityum

There are six regions on Aneityum, all governed by a chief. Most important are the two paramount chiefs, one of the West (1) and one of the East (6). Both are supported by a holy man, one of them being Neriam Tamathui. Those chiefs are connected through the East-West connection. They then connect to the Region Chiefs (2,3,4,5) and on their turn they connect to the District Heads, the Sub-District Heads and so on, down to the Family Heads, depending on the number of people in a region. When something important has to be discussed, like the arrival on the island of the Akaija, telling that their island is connected to the world by the Great Circle and ‘We are One’, this message needs to be brought through this system to the chiefs and then back to the people. 

Peculiar is that the structure of the government system resembles very much the anchor point of Aneityum on the Great Circle as you can see on the picture with Ruben’s drawn map placed on the globe. The alignment is so precise that it seems no coincidence.


Apart from the word Akaija, meaning ‘We all’, there’s another peculiar detail to be found in Aneityumese language. In this language everything is connected to the bigger concept. So one never speaks of ‘a leaf’, but instead says: “the leaf of that palm tree”. Not ‘a hand’, but ‘the hand belonging to this woman’. Not ‘child’, but ‘the daughter from…’.

Interesting too is that this language has a double meaning. There’s the obvious meaning of the words, like the dictionary tells, but there’s also an unspoken meaning, that can only be understood by the Aneityumese people. Other peaple may hear an Aneityumese group speaking about being thirsty and wishing to have some water, but among the group everyone knows that they are going to a Kava-bar to drink some Kava.


It looks like the Ancients have sent a message to the future, to us all, anchored in several locations on an earth-spanning Great Circle: We are One.

Luckily on Aneityum the descendants of this ancient race are still alive. They have struggled to keep their traditions, resisting influences that threaten their culture. The people of Aneityum are very intelligent, often speaking more than 3 languages. The main school of Aneityum stands in high esteem, and it is a public school. Aneityum’s primary school in the main village Anelcauhat even has the only government assigned cultural art teacher of Vanuatu, indicating that Aneityum’s traditions are highly valued. They people of Aneityum say Aneityum is the heart of Vanuatu, as Christianity was brought to the rest Vanuatu through Aneityum, which is about the smallest island of the archipelago.

Out visit to Aneityum has been a huge support for Neriam Tamathui and for the entire island, as they always have known they are special. And now they received a message by two people from the other side of the world, telling them that their word ‘akaija’ means ‘We are One’, and that the Akaija-symbol connects them through the Great Circle to the rest of the world. This was an eye-opener and Wim and Marianne were thanked many times by the chiefs, heads and many other people for taking the effort to come and tell them about their role in the world.
