STONEFLOWER KABBALAH

StoneFlower Kabbalah
A site based on the healing of the ancient wisdom of the Geocentric worldview. The understanding of sacred texts and wisdom is based on a relationship to the Source. This Central Source is the Fount from which the three distinct movements of the Earth globe flow. These three turns-rotation,revolution and precession are a great secret/sod and key to the profound teachings of the mekubalim/kabbalists. These movements provide us with the experience of shanah/time, olam/matter and nephesh/soul(being). The Earth turn called precession is the slow wobble that causes the polar skies to change slowly over a 26,000 year cycle.
The chart of "72" names relates to this great cycle and is a key to unlocking where we are in "time".

Turtle Talks Torah of the Golden Helix "Set me as a seal"

0,1,1,2,3,5,8,13: these are the first eight numbers in the famous Fibonacci series. Fibonacci did not include the zero however which is the awesome key to this wonderful creation we call Etz Chaiim-Tree of Life. This is the numerical equivalent of the helix of life we see in the seashell,pine cone and DNA molecule,the flower and apple tree. It is the divine signature in the physical universe. These are not only symbolic numbers however. They are the "players" in the dance we call cosmos/creation. When we include the sacred ZERO-the first feminine who eternally surrounds the ECHAD- the number ONE then the number EIGHT in the sequence becomes-is counted as the SEVENTH number. Contemplate this seventh day- Sabbath- we sing the eighth parsha of Chumash (of the FIVE books) on the full moon of Kislev. This is the month of the holy Keshet/rainbow(7) when we ignite the holiday that celebrates the EIGHT days and in an Eight year(577-8).
The Source of love:there was she in travail and brought thee forth.


ו שִׂימֵנִי כַחוֹתָם עַל-לִבֶּךָ, כַּחוֹתָם עַל-זְרוֹעֶךָ--כִּי-עַזָּה כַמָּוֶת אַהֲבָה, קָשָׁה כִשְׁאוֹל קִנְאָה: רְשָׁפֶיהָ--רִשְׁפֵּי, אֵשׁ שַׁלְהֶבֶתְיָה. 6 Set me as a seal upon thy heart, as a seal upon thine arm; for love is strong as death, jealousy is cruel as the grave; the flashes thereof are flashes of fire, a very flame of Yah.

TURTLE TALKS TORAH of the Jewish year 5778 Sukkot

We have entered the Hebrew calendar year 5778. This number may be factored to the following primes:
107 X 3 X 3 X 3 X 2 =5778
So this number 5778 is made of the THREE prime numbers 2, 3 (cubed), and 107.
The prime number 107 is very significant in that it is the 28th prime number in the series of natural numbers.
28 is the average count of days in a lunar cycle.(107 is also followed by the prime 109 which means it has a "twin prime")
The ancients therefore derived what is called the "28" mansions of the moon.
The atomic weight of the metal silver is 107.87, the metal associated with the moon by the ancient peoples.
The water soul of this sacred globe Earth is awakening.
The moon is Mother Nature. She governs the ocean tides of time,place and soul. Hag Sameach Sukkot


EPOCH OF THE MOONBOW

We find the Hebrew letters that make up the name of the year 5778 heh-tav-shin-ayin-chet(In Hebrew the letters are the numbers as well) in the consecutive initial letters of the Hebrew words "Tachat Hatapuach Oyrarteyka Shamah Chebelatka- "under the apple-tree I awakened thee" from the beautiful verse in the love song Shir HaShirim(the 108th verse of the song), Song of Songs 8:5
  
ה  מִי זֹאת, עֹלָה מִן-הַמִּדְבָּר, מִתְרַפֶּקֶת, עַל-דּוֹדָהּ; תַּחַת הַתַּפּוּחַ, עוֹרַרְתִּיךָ--שָׁמָּה חִבְּלַתְךָ אִמֶּךָ, שָׁמָּה חִבְּלָה יְלָדַתְךָ.5 Who is this that cometh up from the wilderness, leaning upon her beloved? Under the apple-tree I awakened thee; there thy mother was in travail with thee; there was she in travail and brought thee forth.
Thank You to Rabbi Moshe Miller for the reference to those letters of this year 5778 to be so unusually found in this incredible verse of the holiest of the love songs.

Turtle Talks Torah and Sings with the Song of Songs

ה  שְׁחוֹרָה אֲנִי וְנָאוָה, בְּנוֹת יְרוּשָׁלִָם; כְּאָהֳלֵי קֵדָר, כִּירִיעוֹת שְׁלֹמֹה.5 'I am black, but comely, O ye daughters of Jerusalem, as the tents of Kedar, as the curtains of Solomon.

א  אֲנִי חֲבַצֶּלֶת הַשָּׁרוֹן, שׁוֹשַׁנַּת הָעֲמָקִים.1 I am a rose of Sharon, a lily of the Depths.
Known to the ancients of America as the sacred "Smoking Mirror" the total eclipse of the sun by the moon is an opening to what the Mekubalim/kabbalists of old called the Earth Shaarim or soul gates. The Levanah, the Moon Chieftess appears at Zenith and turns the day into the night which is a way of saying, "I am in charge folks". May we heed the call of the immense silence who is the "Still Small Voice" that is the very Source of Love. She is the root of the Tree of Being, and the original holy darkness called the Choseyhk in the book of Bereshit/Genesis. Also known as the Etz Chaiim/tree of Life, and the Shechinah.  She spoke to the ancient Hebrews as in the Song of Songs as well as to the early gnostic mekubalim here in this amazing poem dug up at Nag Hammadi in the 1940's.
"I was sent forth from the power,
and I have come to those who reflect upon me,
and I have been found among those who seek after me.
Look upon me, you who reflect upon me,
and you hearers, hear me.
You who are waiting for me, take me to yourselves.
And do not banish me from your sight.
And do not make your voice hate me, nor your hearing.
Do not be ignorant of me anywhere or any time. Be on your guard!
Do not be ignorant of me.

For I am the first and the last.
I am the honored one and the scorned one.
I am the whore and the holy one.
I am the wife and the virgin.
I am and the daughter.
I am the members of my mother.
I am the barren one
and many are her sons.
I am she whose wedding is great,
and I have not taken a husband.
I am the midwife and she who does not bear.
I am the solace of my labor pains.
I am the bride and the bridegroom,
and it is my husband who begot me.
I am the mother of my father
and the sister of my husband
and he is my offspring.
I am the slave of him who prepared me.
I am the ruler of my offspring.
But he is the one who begot me before the time on a birthday.
And he is my offspring in (due) time,
and my power is from him.
I am the staff of his power in his youth,
and he is the rod of my old age.
And whatever he wills happens to me.
I am the silence that is incomprehensible
and the idea whose remembrance is frequent.
I am the voice whose sound is manifold
and the word whose appearance is multiple.
I am the utterance of my name.

Why then have you hated me, you Greeks?
Because I am a barbarian among the barbarians?
For I am the wisdom of the Greeks
and the knowledge of the barbarians.
I am the judgement of the Greeks and of the barbarians.
I am the one whose image is great in Egypt
and the one who has no image among the barbarians.
I am the one who has been hated everywhere
and who has been loved everywhere.
I am the one whom they call Life,
and you have called Death.
I am the one whom they call Law,
and you have called Lawlessness.
I am the one whom you have pursued,
and I am the one whom you have seized.
I am the one whom you have scattered,
and you have gathered me together.
I am the one before whom you have been ashamed,
and you have been shameless to me.
I am she who does not keep festival,
and I am she whose festivals are many.

I, I am godless,
and I am the one whose God is great.
I am the one whom you have reflected upon,
and you have scorned me.
I am unlearned,
and they learn from me.
I am the one that you have despised,
and you reflect upon me.
I am the one whom you have hidden from,
and you appear to me.
But whenever you hide yourselves,
I myself will appear.
For whenever you appear,
I myself will hide from you.

I am Peace,
and war has come because of me.
And I am an alien and a citizen."
Translated by George W. MacRae)

And here hidden in the ancient Hebrew text called the Sepher HaBahir: The Book of Brilliance this first beingness called the Chosehyk which word holds the related shoresh/root for Shechinah the indwelling-Woman Lover in the Song of Songs and the darkness that holds a keshet/rainbow of brilliant colors also know in the circle of aboriginal initiates: as the moonbow:
1. Rabbi Nehuniah ben HaKana said: One verse (Job 37:21) states, "And now they do not see light, it is brilliant (Bahir) in the skies…[round about God in terrible majesty]." Another verse, however, (Psalm 18:12), states, "He made darkness His hiding place." It is also written (Psalm 97:2), "Cloud and gloom surround Him." This is an apparent contradiction. A third verse comes and reconciles the two. It is written (Psalm 139:12), "Even darkness is not dark to You. Night shines like day"


 As you may know from previous blog pots here we each as humans have five levels of soul/being or souls that connect us to the sacred Tree. The Mekubalim(kbbalists) call them Nephesh,Ruach,Neshamah(individual soul),Chaiah and Yechidah. The Earth IS an embodiment of the divine and the heavens and also has five souls. The Shechinah- is the CHAIAH or life soul of Earth/Eretz, Source of Life and the root of the Tree of Life. She is the moon pulling and controlling the oceans, all growth,gestation and all the waters of being. The Yechidah(uniquely One) soul of the Earth is who we call HaShem- the Source of Love and Life and the whole enchilada. You may see the five souls(scutes) down the center of the turtle's back in this image below. The turtle is living EARTH!

Turtle Talks Torah and sings with the donkey named Sylvester for this Shabbos Chazon(vision)

This story contains a profound aggadic(legend)-Talmudic teaching. It directly relates to this weeks Torah Parsha Devarim and this Shabbos Chazzon, of vision of a new Temple Earth. This is on both a lighter mussar level regarding fear and trust. Also on the profound level this story directly connects to how the special forms in the ancient mishkan and temple, called the Kerubim(cherubim) need at times to be touching each other in order for the divine presence of Peace and Joy to rest in our Earth temple. Then there is of course the humble donkey who has a special place in the teachings of Torah, written and oral.

Turtle Talks Torah, the Song of Songs and Fibonacci

      A most basic understanding in the teachings of the mekubalim(kabbalists) of old is that the world is manifested from the Hebrew letters. These letters are said to make up NUMBER-time and sequence; SHAPE- matter and space; and STORY- they have soul or being-they speak. This is all spoken of in the opening verses of the Sepher Yetzirah- the primer of these teachings along with the Holy Torah herself. So this is an intrinsic knowledge that being or soul is as primary and original as space and time. Life in physical forms as organisms may seem to have evolved just lately in the cosmogony of the universe. However the source and substance of soul is as original as time and matter. In the last post it was explained how the three circuits (gilgalim) or towers are represented as the top three scutes on the turtle shell which are directly connected to the three ways that the Earth globe turns. These manifest our experience of the world. The wheel of the ten omakim-depths(sephirot) develop out of the three turnings. All of this is also directly connected to the three ‘sepharim”- the three functions of the Hebrew letters as mentioned in the Sepher Yetzirah- time(number)-space(shape) and soul-story.
     Since the turtle is a living organism their shells( many turtle species have the same pattern) also express the Fibonacci series and the golden ratio which is only found expressed in living organisms. For those who understand multi-dimensional- 5-D theory you will know that this mathematical ratio, the Golden mean , also called the divine proportion, is the signature so to speak of the divine soul realm(5-D) interfaced with time/space 4-D. This is why the Sepher Yetzirah insists that the omakim/sephirot are “ten and not nine, ten and not eleven”. . :
      From Chapter one(verse 3&4) Sepher Yetzirah: "The ineffable Sephiroth are Ten, as are the Numbers; and as there are in man five fingers over against five, so over them is established a covenant of strength, by word of mouth, and by the circumcision of the flesh. 4. Ten is the number of the ineffable Sephiroth, ten and not nine, ten and not eleven. Understand this wisdom, and be wise by the perception. Search out concerning it, restore the Word to its creator, and replace Creator who formed it upon the micono(seat/throne)". 
Wheel of ten-two pentagrams interlaced in living flower expresses Golden ratio
Wheel of the ten sephirot whirling out of Source to manifest our world
So the ten and not nine, ten and not eleven is because only a wheel or circle of Ten(as a multiple of five), not a nine pointed star or an eleven pointed star, will express the divine proportion, the Golden mean (see photos). The Fibonacci series is another expression of the Golden ratio as easily seen in the spiral of the seashell(see image)
Turtle Carapace expresses Golden ratio











and pine cone and the human ear.
Spiral seashell expresses Golden Ratio
In the last post it was mentioned that the wheel of the ten sephirot/depths as seen in the wheel of TEN from Luriannic Kabbalah(see image above right) is a wheel of origin but it is still always present and attainable. In a sense this new world we are moving into is beginning to connect to this wheel as a tikkun or repair to the imbalanced qualities that we have worked to re-balance within the lineage streams(religions) around the globe for so many millennia.
     The turtle also explains how we get the sacred Shemamphorash, the seventy-two names from the three verses in the parsha Beshalach in the Torah. The third and bottom wheel of scutes on the turtle shell, the carapace,count twenty-four which when multiplied by the three circuits/gilgulim or top three scutes on the turtle shell we get 3X24=72. We can see from this how the seventy-two names also encode the Golden mean within their number. The image of the decagon (see image below) shows how the 72 degree angles appear which also hints at the seventy-two names connection here. The circle around a pentagram that also expresses the golden mean divides the 360 degrees into five sections of seventy-two degrees each.
Decagon expresses Golden ration and the "72"
When we look at the Fibonacci series of numbers we may see the seventy-two  again. Here we find the thirteenth number(when we include zero) in the series being “144” which is just a multiple(twice) the seventy-two. Here is the beginning of the series: 0, 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, 55, 89, 144,…..
We do not usually get too into the numbers here on this blog but this is really a quite essential part of the math to master to really understand the depth of these teachings of the mekubalim/kabbalists.
Pentagram shows the Fibonacci spiral toward center
Mayan Cave ceremony














Mayan Cave Ceremony
     The covenant of Abraham and Sarah  at EIGHT days is connected both to the Fibonacci series and golden ratio as well as the octave of music. 0, 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, 55, 89, 144,….. EIGHT is the SEVENTH number in the Fibonacci series when including the zero.It is precisely a divine kind of prayer-form music to connect humanity to a collective soul depth that will make a real Peace possible in our Temple Earth. In fact this kind of naming covenant or ceremonial prayer form was known at a certain level to the Native American priests as we can see from this cave painting from the August,1981 issue of National Geographic(image right). These same Mayan priests(cave image from the 700's ce)  were waiting for a bearded white priestly people to arrive here in America. The book of the Mayan priest Chilam Balaam says for the people to look for these priestly men who will come to America. “from page 168 “The Book of Chilam Balam of Chumayel”, Univ. of Oklahoma Press: “Our elder brother comes, oh men of Tantum. Receive your guests, the bearded men, the men of the east, the bearers of the sign of God,lord.” If you look at this image of a Mayan priest in the center, he is letting blood from his foreskin with either a flint or sea anemone spine. You will figure from this what the (secret)“sign of God" is that they mention. On the upper part of the painting you will see him cross-legged in front of a spiral CONCH SHELL(at genital level) which explains that they were also applying a Fibonacci rhythm to their ceremonies. This was part of a secret priesthood of the good reformer to these people, named Quetzalcoatl/Kulkukan. He ended human sacrifice and replaced it with a non-lethal form of blood offering. This was hidden for centuries. As the lakota say, mitakyue Oyasin-We are all related!

In the next post we will explain how all this is connected to the holiest of all the ketubim/writings, The Shir HaShirim or Song of Songs: . 

ו  שִׂימֵנִי כַחוֹתָם עַל-לִבֶּךָ, כַּחוֹתָם עַל-זְרוֹעֶךָ--כִּי-עַזָּה כַמָּוֶת אַהֲבָה, קָשָׁה כִשְׁאוֹל קִנְאָה:  רְשָׁפֶיהָ--רִשְׁפֵּי, אֵשׁ שַׁלְהֶבֶתְיָה.6 Set me as a seal upon thy heart, as a seal upon thine arm; for love is strong as death, jealousy is cruel as Sheol; the flashes thereof are flashes of fire, a very flame of YAH.

Turtle Talks Torah while singing with the Fountain of the Etz Chaiim/Tree of Life

From the base of the Tree of Life in Gan Eden, eternal paradise, flows water from the sacred fount. There is a Jewish legend from old Italy that tells the story of how Alexander the Great went on a quest to find these waters of immortality. He had the knowledge from an oracle that he would conquer the world but die young. So he sought a remedy for this early fate. He finally got to the waters in Gan Eden but before he took a swig a voice warned him. He would become immortal but he would have to stay forever in this upper paradise. He chose to not taste the waters of eternal life and instead go back out to the world to seek adventure. Ancient Jewish teachings from Luriannic Kabbalah show us this river of life although many scholars believe this was only a past event, depicted in this wheel diagram, that happened before our present manifested world.(see image).This however actually depicts a place that is always available and at the root of what keeps the world alive and developing. Native indigenous elders call this one of the great medicine wheels of our origin time. Various religions that carry prayerforms developed from wisdom lineages help us weave garments with rhythmic prayer and ceremony for our soul bodies so as to access the mighty and beautiful flow from these wheels of holiness. Our sages tell us that the world is built upon three columns or migdalim that are also vast wheels-gilgulim or circuits. The Sepher Yetzirah calls these Olam/world, Shanah/year and Lev/heart. These corresponding to our view here as the Space/Time/Soul continuum. The turtle carapace shows us these three "columns" in the very center top and then we may see the great wheel of the ten omakim(sephirot) surrounding the three in the center. The Earth interfaces these columns through her three ways of turning and the wheel of ten depths flow into our world. In the first words of Bereishis/Genesis these ten depths(sephirot)are set in five pairs: Skies/Earth-Tohu/Bohu-light/darkness-day/night-evening/morning. May the great chesed/loving-kindness and healing flow into our world with mighty strength and beauty

so as to awaken us into what we have here in these times on our temple Earth. Thanks to Howard Schwartz for his translation of the legend "Waters of Eternal Life" from his book, "Miriam's Tambourine".

From exile to FREEDOM: The Turtle Talks Torah, the big sea crossing is NOW

The basic turtle carapace with the five scutes down the center surrounded by eight more(also may be seen as three surrounded by a wheel of ten) and then the twenty four as a wheel around the bottom edge.
The pattern here is lifted right from the back of the turtle shell by the Aztec/Mayan priests.
Between December 31, 2015 and December 14, 2018 we are engaged in the great testing of our republic. We are the appointed caretakers of Earth. For people schooled in the knowledge of the diverse wisdom lineages from around the globe we know that the entire physical universe(4-D) is as a speck of dust on the surface of an ocean of being/soul(5-D). The pattern on the ancient turtle(see image) reveals the secrets of the true five dimensional shape of the world. The ancient Asian cultures fashioned their calendars to the turtle pattern as did the Aztec/Mayan calendar priests(see images) and the ancient Egyptians. On the very top of the Turtle carapace are three scutes(plates) surrounded by a wheel of ten and then the bottom edge is a wheel of twenty four. The turtle who is a manifested 5-D symbol(five central scutes down the back) of the Earth globe reveals how the sphere moves in THREE very distinct turns. Daily rotation, yearly revolution, and the vast cycle called precession(26 thousand years).These turnings give us the experience of our world in TEN manifestations(omakim/depths or sephirot)). The first fifty two words of the Hebrew bible name these TEN depths of our experience. Sky/Earth:Above(tohu)/Below(bohu):Light/Darkness:Day/Night:Morning/ Evening. The ancient sky-watchers of diverse traditions discovered that when these three great Earth turns are multiplied by the twenty four division(scutes)s as counted on the lower wheel of the turtle shell we get Seventy two divisions of the wheel of sky/Earth. These may be used to mark the great changes of societies and civilizations when related to the movements of the other celestial spheres(planets). These are five degree segments of celestial longitude called quinaries by some ancient peoples. Five times seventy two equals the 360 degrees of the full circle. The three trans-Saturnian planets(Uranus/Neptune/Pluto) are directly connected to the three basic turnings of the Earth globe and the Jewish sages predicted their existence in the ancient text Sepher Yetzirah when the Hebrew letters were assigned to different celestial objects and "elements". 
The Hebrew wheel of the seventy two "names" aligned with celestial degrees of longitude.
As dealt with in my blog the entire Jewish ceremonial calendar is geared to a full solar revolution cycle of the planet Pluto of 247 years long(13 turns of the 19 year calendar) and also the monthly lunar-moon cycle. This great cycle is geared to the big changes of societies called yugas in Sanskrit, shemittot in Hebrew and worlds in the Pueblo culture. The planet Pluto just moved into a new one of the 72 - quinarie-five degree segments of sky on December 31, 2015. The Jewish teachers charted the seventy two segments as sacred names and aligned them to the Shemhamforash, the great name of seventy two(see image). This is an especially significant five degree segment in that it holds the south nodal axis point of the planet Pluto itself which is where a planet's orbit intersects the Earth ecliptic. This is the point in a cycle that a planet directly manifests it's nature in the physical Earth sphere. The segment(15 to 20 degrees Capricorn) aligns with the Hebrew name Yod-Yod-Lammed and it is especially important as discussed by the Rashbi in the Sepher HaZohar on the Torah parsha Beshalach. This parsha, section of the Torah is where the seventy two names themselves are to be found. Just a few days after Pluto entered this section of the sky wheel the most neo-conservative SCOTUS justice died of natural causes and left the court divided(and missing a judge for the longest stretch ever) as well as highlighting this division in our country. The Planet Pluto cycle is the key to renewal, rebirth and FREEDOM. This is a juncture to a new level of responsibility and it sometimes comes with a great testing. It is time now to get right with who we are grateful to. For our very lives and the welfare of our sacred planet and our individual souls is being tested.

The Tibetan calendar is also geared to the pattern on the turtle shell.
The ancient Chinese sage, Lo Shu's turtle square and basis for the I Ching and Taoist teachings. The numbers are the same as the Hebrew Kamea(magic square) of Saturn.
Here is the Asian wheel of the I Ching with the number and patterns taken right off the turtle shell.
