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".

Wheel of the Eretz/Earth:The TurtleTalksTorah

The three ways the Earth turns is a key to understanding the Temple that is the globe we live in. As explained in the previous posts the Jewish calendar is a shamanic prayerful way of marking time so as to bring the Peace of the heaven worlds into the physical realm. The 247 year cycle of the calendar particularly singles out the MOON and the planet PLUTO whose solar orbit is about 247 years long. Since many prophetic traditions- Christian, Jewish, Buddhist, Hindu,Islamic,Mayan,Indigenous traditions all have told us we have moved or are moving into a new epoch here where the feminine comes into balance with the masculine many of us were sure we would be having a woman president after forty-four men. Part of this as previously discussed is that the forty-fourth president has the Hebrew name Barack which means lightningbolt and in the gnostic Christian as well as native traditions the divine feminine is the voice/expression of the thunder which as every child knows follows the lightning. The vision of the Cheyenne prophet named Sweet Medicine in the heart of turtle island centuries ago included an initiation within a circle of Fortyfour lightningEagle chiefs within Bear Butte. The governement that has developed on this land mirrors the cosmology of the people who are native to this land. So the forty-fourth Eagle chief to the forty-fifth would be especially significant.
The fact that the Planet Pluto has just moved into a new one of the seventy two quinaries-five degree segments of the sky/Earth wheel(called Shemhamphorash) changed it up such that we have it seems entered a two year purification period needed for many of us to still find the balance of Chesed, lovingkindness and Gevurah,power within ourselves and our life journeys.(for mekubalim you will know that the "power" -Gevurah is actually from the feminine) The telltale sign of this in our government was the change in the number of Judges on the SCOTUS with one member dying. The court of the USA being an expression of the Nine dark robed judges of the underworld in Mayan/Aztec cosmology.  As previously explained the nine seated court of the SCOTUS became overshadowed by the divine court we believe, the beit din, when our country turned 225 years old in 2001. 225 is the square of fifteen, the defining number and divine quality(yod-heh) of the kamea of the nine number/letters(see picture). This key number is the value in addition of the digits in ech column/row/diagnol of a "magic" square. A square of a key number in a dimensional/soul grid signifies an extension within physical manifestation. This grid aligns with the heaven of Shabbatai/Saturn which involves the "upper mother and court as well as the seat of divinity. In eastern traditions this holds the nature of Tara/Kali/Shakti and Spider Grandmother). The total value of the NINE boxes of the grid equals fortyfive and therefore this movement from the fortyfourth to fortyfifth CEO of the USA is completeing the qualities that this grid expresses from the soul/heaven realm into our socio-politcal world. So it seems that the purification of the Spider Grandmother- Tara/kali/Shakti/Shechinah(Binah-upper mother) is changing up our worlds right now. Remember from the "Turtle Talks Torah" posts all the seven dimenional grids that explain the topography of the soul realm as it interfaces the physical time/space come from the pattern on the back of the turtle(see image).




.
Pluto just moved into the quinarie of Capricorn/goat-15 degrees to 20 degrees which also holds the planets south node. This nodal axis is where a planets plane of orbit intersects the Earth's ecliptic.Pluto will be transiting this area for about two years. It matches up with the Hebrew divine name- of the seventytwo -Yod-Yod-Lamed(see photo of the name and the names in a wheel)), one of the five names of the seventytwo that contains two yodim which are very significant. The number value is fifty also very significant. The shaar hanun, the fifty gates of kedosh/holiness are now open to all people walking the path of kindness to others.  The wheel of the "72"(and the 216 letters total) may be divided evenly by the EIGHT or the NINE. The SCOTUS of EIGHT will be swearing in the new president and vice-president in January. The first time historically the court of EIGHT will be doing this. We are in a global purification it seems. Grandmother Spider is shaking up her web for the good times to come in a healed Earth. There will be a total eclipse of the sun in August of next summer 2017 at the star Regulus, the star of the king in the heart of the LionLeo. A total solar eclipse is Grandmother Moon taking over the show(blocking out the sun) and turning the day into the night for a little while..
This is also the degree of the president-elect's ascendant(most individual point in a person's natal chart)and this appears to signify a major transformation of the whole government and we hope and pray it is a positive healing for our leaders and for the entire Earth and her people. We all have a choice in our actions, our motivations and hence their effects on others. This eclipse is the first one tracking down the center of the USA since her birth as a nation. We pray for Peace. Oseh Shalom

SUPERMOON of Chesvan and a new world emerging 5-777

This is the Jewish year 5777, that's the seven hundred seventy-seventh year of the sixth millennium according to the Hebrew count of sacred time. This Hebrew month of Chesvan we will see the supermoon, the largest(closest to Earth at full) since 1948(founding of the State of Israel). The Chesvan full moon is also the anniversary of the saddest night in recent Jewish history- Kristallnacht, when the Nazis began their implementation of the "final solution", the extermination of the Jewish people. The following has the one mention of "777" in the Torah(Hebrew bible):from the book of Genesis
לא וַיְהִי, כָּל-יְמֵי-לֶמֶךְ, שֶׁבַע וְשִׁבְעִים שָׁנָה, וּשְׁבַע מֵאוֹת שָׁנָה; וַיָּמֹת. {ס} 31 And all the days of Lamech were seven hundred seventy and seven years; and he died. {S}
Now Lamech was the father of NOAH(Noach) who represented a new generation of people on the Earth after the flood of purification which began right after the full moon of the month of Chesvan and ended on the same day in Chesvan one year later.
The new president elect will be on his first full day in office-January,21,2017: seventy years,seven months and seven days old. The synchronicitys are amazing. Yes this might all sound quite crazy. It is just that the entire physical universe floats in a far vaster ocean of soul/being that is a fifth dimension(key the music) interfaced with the four dimensions of space/time. That is where our origin is and where it all is in a bigger harmony. What we experience as synchronous events or "coincidences" are the signatures of a higher level of organization, the soul realm, interfacing our lesser dimensional world.The patterns point to a divine plan and since this crazy world is built on love, Love will be victorious.
In the previous post we discussed how the 247 year cycle of the Jewish calendar- thirteen-nineteen year rounds shows a deep shamanic relationship between the planet Pluto and the Moon as part of the ancient Jewish prayerform which makes our journey in time/space one that is sacred. Pluto and the other two planets beyond Saturn are represented as the three "mother letters" in Kabbalistic writings and function as chiefs of the basic elements that the world is built from  We have now entered a two year(or so) period where the planet Pluto is located at the planets south node, the nodal axis being where the orbit of the planet intersects the Earth's ecliptic. The planetary spheres as outlined in the primer text of Kabbalah, the Sepher Yetzira, number ten and are the physical manifestation of  what is famously called in the teachings of the mekubalim, "the merkava". The entire structure of the merkava, the "chariot" that is our manifested world is being fully revealed and Pluto at his own south node is striking a deep resonant tune that is awakening humanity at the most profound level of our soul roots.
The moon is sacred for ancient Yisrael and many Earth connected peoples. She is the soul of the holy Earth, In the Torah she is said to rule the Lailah/night and the Choseyhk, the divine darkness(root of Shechinah) and all the kochavim- the stars(book of Genesis/Bereshiet). Talmudic legend states that her light would regain an original splendour as bright as the shemesh/sun at the time of geulah/redemption. Our souls are rooted in the beingness that is the Levanah/moon. The month of Chesvan has no major holidays except the sacred Sabbath but the first temple was inaugurated in Chesvan and the prophets have said that the third eternal temple(not a building made by human hands like the first two, one made of precious sapphires-Rashbi) would also be made manifest in this month. We pray for PEACE. We have entered a new epoch of our human walk on Earth.

The year 5777 and the epoch of the Moonbow

This Hebrew new year, Rosh HaShanah we complete 304 - nineteen year Hebrew calendar cycles of the Jewish count of sacred time. The calendar cycles are built on the movements of the Moon with the Earth and Sun and help define the way of the Jewish shamanic prayer form in time. The number "304" may be written with the Hebrew letters sheen-daleth which holds the value of 304. The various shoresh/root meanings of sheen-daleth(includes "spirit" and "breast") point to the deep significance of this cycle completion. As this blog is built on the ancient Hebraic geocentric worldview and the truths that this view holds we are able to understand and learn more about the dimension of nephesh/soul that encompasses and interpenetrates the entire physical creation.  The discovery of the three trans-saturnian planets completed the astrological pattern set forth in the ancient Hebrew text Sepher Yetzirah with Uranus,Neptune and Pluto matching up with the three "mother letters" spoken of in the text. Now the significance of these three "planets" keeps being revealed. This article linked here explains how the Jewish calendar is built on Thirteen 19 year calendar cycles which means that there is a larger calendar cycle of 247 years that the Jewish ceremonial count is built upon. This is the approximate length of one complete Pluto revolution about the Sun! Previously in older posts it has been explained how the nodal axis of the planet Pluto(where the plane of Pluto's orbit intersects the Earth's ecliptic axis) has been aligned with the 22nd part of the seventy-two part sacred name-Shemhamphorash for the past 300 years or so. This 22nd "name"- Yod-Yod-Yod, is especially connected to the Hebrew Priestly lineage, it corresponds to 15-20 degrees of the Crab/Sartan and the three yodim(letter yods) are the leading three letters of the Birchat HaKohanim, the priestly blessing. This reveals another understanding of how
the entire Jewish way of marking sacred time is intricately connected to the Levanah/Moon AND the planet Pluto. The celestial bodies and their mathematical connections reveal a way of understanding how to delineate the topography of the vast ocean of soul/being that the entire physical creation floats within. The sky is a projection of the spirit realm that is Holy Earth/ Holy Tree and the Earth is the embodiment of Sacred Sky.
Here is the article on the calendar connection. http://www.star-k.org/articles/news/3311/pluto-and-the-turs-jewish-calendar-cycle/    http://matzav.com/pluto-and-the-turs-jewish-calendar-cycle/
“New Horizons” (NASA’s Mission to Pluto) recently came within 7,800 miles of Pluto and brought much attention to this dwarf planet that at any given time is between 2.66 billion and 4.68 billion miles away from Earth.
As we begin Rosh Hashanah, 5776, which will mark the beginning of the final year of the 304thnineteen year cycle since Brias Haolam (the creation of the world), it is interesting to note the amazing similarity between the amount of time it takes Pluto to orbit the the sun and the Jewish Calendar cycle based on 13 – nineteen year cycles found in the Tur (Orach Chaim Siman 428).
The Tur’s chart is based on a 247-year cycle and it takes Pluto about 247 years to orbit the sun.
This is the Tur’s 247-year calendar found in Orach Chaim, Siman 428, in Hilchos Rosh Chodesh. Note the marks we have added to illustrate how the charts work. The “hey chof” on the bottom left of the first chart is the kvius hashanah for this past year, the 18th year of the 19-year cycle and shanah peshutah (none-leap year). Note the “hey chof” column in the second chart. Rosh Chodesh Elul (circled) is on Shabbosand Sunday. That was this past Rosh Chodesh. This coming year, the 19th year and a leap year, has a triangle around it. Note the “bais shin” and how on the second chart it indicates that this coming Rosh Hashanah will be on Monday and Yom Kippur will be on Wednesday. The entire year’s events are indicated in that column. Finally, at the top left of the first chart is “bais ches” in the first year (peshutah) of the upcoming 19-year cycle (to begin a year from now in October 2016). The bottom left squares indicate that they are for the year 5777 (note: what looks like a vov should be a zayin, as in 5777), and 247 years earlier, in 5530, and 247 years before that. The second chart shows that Rosh Hashanah next year, 5777/2016, will begin on Monday. The rest of the years are all indicated using both charts.

The following explains the connection between Pluto and the Tur’s chart.
Many of us are familiar with the 19-year cycle – every 19 years Hebrew and English dates coincide. For example, the first day of Rosh Hashanah, 5757, occurred on September 14th, 1996, and 19 years later, the first day of Rosh Hashanah, 5776, also occurs on September 14th, 2015. [As is well known, it does not always work out exactly and may be a day or two off, but that is beyond the scope of our discussion.]
However, what is important to note is that the day of the week never coincides 19 years later. The first day of Rosh Hashanah, 5757/1996, was on a Shabbos and the first day of Rosh Hashanah, 5776/2015, will be on Monday. This is always the case 19 years later – the days of the week will never coincide.
However, if 247 years pass – which is 13 cycles of 19 years (13 x 19 = 247), the days of the week and the entire Hebrew calendar year repeat themselves. For example, the Hebrew year 5528/1767-68 and 5775/2014-15 (247 years later) were identical. In both years, Chanukah began on Wednesday, Purim was on Thursday, Pesach began on Shabbos, and Tisha B’av was nidcheh (pushed ahead) to Sunday, etc. The years 5529/1768-69 and 5776/2015-16 are also identical.
With this in mind, the Tur (the precursor to the Shulchan Aruch and found on bookshelves in Batei Midrashim worldwide) published a chart in Orach Chaim Siman 428 in Hilchos Rosh Chodesh, which is a 900+ year calendar that begins in 5055 (1294-95). The basis of the calendar is this 247-year cycle. It consists of 19 rows – one for each year of the 19-year cycle and 13 columns. Each column indicates the first year of that particular column – and then 247 years later, and 247 years after that, etc. For example, one column shows the years 5245, 5492, 5739 (1978-79), and 5986. A calendar on the corresponding page indicates what days of the week various days occur. There are 247 boxes – each containing two Hebrew letters with the ability to see if the year is pshuta (regular) or meuberes (leap) – each box describes a specific year of each cycle. [A full discussion of how to use the chart as well as a handful of exceptions to when a year does not repeat 247 years later, the Achronim’s modification to certain years on the chart, and how nowadays three letters known as the kvias hashana are typically used as a clearer way to describe a year, is beyond the scope of our discussion].
The basis of the 247-year cycle is that every 247 years the time of the molad is almost identical. To be precise, it moves back a mere 905 chalakim (50 minutes and 16.67 seconds). For example, in 1755, the molad for Tishrei, 5516, was at about 7:45 a.m. on Shabbos morning. Therefore, Rosh Hashanah was on Shabbos. 247 years later – in 2002, the molad for Tishrei 5763 was at about 6:55 a.m. on Shabbos morning – so once again, Rosh Hashanah was on Shabbos. Because the molad is almost identical, Rosh Hashanah, as well as all the other days of the year, will be identical 247 years later.
Pluto was discovered in 1930, long after the Tur lived. For many years, it was considered the furthest planet from the sun in the solar system, but was downgraded to a “dwarf planet.” It is quite fascinating that the Ribbono Shel Olam created this dwarf planet which is an astronomical “siman” that basically corresponds to the Tur’s cycle.
It takes Pluto about 247 years to orbit the sun (247 years and 248 days to be more precise). So, Pluto is in the same location vis-à-vis the sun as it was 247 years ago (by contrast the Earth is in the same location vis-à-vis the sun after 365.24 days). When this happens, the Hebrew year is repeating itself.
For example, as indicated above, Chanukah, 247 years ago, began on a Wednesday, as it did this past Chanukah. On 8 Elul, 5775, Sunday, August 23, 2015, Pluto was in the same location vis-à-vis the sun as it was – 247 years ago – on the first day of Chanukah, 5528/1767, (because the rotation is not precisely 247 years the dates are not exactly the same and it could pull into the next year). B’Toras moshol (a theoretical example), someone born on Pluto, 247 years ago, who remained there, would be celebrating his first birthday this year! At the same time, on Earth, we have a Hebrew year that repeats itself from 247 years ago.
Appreciating the chachma (wisdom) involved in our solar system and viewing the breathtaking photos sent back by “New Horizons” allows us to better appreciate the Niflaos haBorai (wonders of the Creator) as the Navi (Prophet) Yeshaya tells us at the end of the Haftorah we read last month onShabbos Nachamu – “Se’uh marom aynaychem u’ruh mee barah aleh” – lift your eyes up high and see Who Created this.

The Tenth Holy Cow! and Tammuz 17 Sabbath

The first ever historical birth(1994) of a female white bison(non-albino)calf in America was also the fulfillment of the Jewish prophetic tradition concerning the red heifer. Natives knowt his as  the ancient Lakota prophecy of the White Calf Woman. The white color is the sign of the full purification and joining of ancient wisdom lineages. The red is a color that  carries the significance of strength(the ruddy normal bison) and severity and it is mitigated and balanced by the white color of Chesed, lovingkindness and Peace. Solomon said he did not understand the rite of the red Heifer, Para Adumah. This is simply because it is guided by the Deity, who had caused the rare pure red cow to be born throughout Jewish Temple history and then fulfilled and completed only after the original temples were destroyed and a global migration/diaspora was implemented.
This included the migration to America, the land where the pure red bison is a sacred animal. Solomon did not know there were a people on the other side of the globe who held a key to the unfolding of the prophetic tradition that the plains Indians call the way of the "Brother Arrows".The author of the Sepher haZohar, the Rashbi, specifically said that the third temple would not be built by human hands and so there are and would be no more animal sacrifices and no physical building needed to be built on the ancient historical site. Rashi, and the Ramchal, Rabbi Moses Luzzato also taught along with the Rashbi that the temple would not be a human built structure on the historical site. The sign of the first female white bison calf means the Sabbath Queen, the Shechinah, is now fully interfaced with the human world. This has occurred thanks to several ancient religious/wisdom prayer traditions from around the Earth. In Ancient America the Sabbath Queen, who is a real being, came to the people as White Bison Calf Woman and gave them teachings(SEVEN rites) and a holy way of life. She also gave them a spiritual tool made of a special mineral substance(as well as plant and animal), an incense altar/misbeyach, like in the ancient Jewish temple to connect and pray with the divine soul world, the heavenly realms. Part of the incense used was a special red plant that is a powerful purifier but like the ashes of the biblical Red Heifer, it renders a person impure and ill if not used properly and with respect.  
The blueprint so to speak of the need to bring some special minerals together to complete a soul unification was the breastplate,the Choshen(see image), of the High Priest of Yisrael and the twelve stones representing each of the twelve tribes.
     It can all be undertood and explained with the astrological secret of the name of "72", the Shemhamphorash from the book of Shemot/Exodus as aligned with a particular quinary (see image of the wheel), five degree section of celestial longitude. Match these with the alignment of the temple zodiac of Denderah in Egypt(see image) and then it is all revealed. This temple was dedicated to the same deity, hathor/Isis who is the "Calf Woman", the Sabbath queen(mother of SEVEN), for one lineage tradition of ancient Egypt. She is and always has been about Joy,Love,Womanhood and Peace. Due to the preccesional slow 26,000 year wobble of the Earth the stars called the teomim(sung about in the Song of Solomon), alpha and beta gemini, the "Eyes of the Sky(Thiazi)" for the Norse peoples, move through the 22nd five degree segment (crab:15-20degrees)which is special to the priesthood of the Jewish people according to ancient tradition. During a short period of the grand 26,000 year wheel cycle, about three centuries, these stars align with the five degree quinary of the holy name(yod-yod-yod). This allowed for the uniting of lineage traditions, called the bundling of the sacred arrows in the plains Indian tradition. This transiting occurred from the middle 1600's ce. up to the year 1990 ce. This alignment allowed for the completion of  the yechidum/unifications in the teachings of the Arizal(Rabbi Luria). For the Jewish part we also needed to carry some of the special substances from the ancient Temple of Solomon with us here to America. This would include a piece of the original luchoth, the broken tablet from Har Sinai which tradition holds was kept in the Ark of the covenant and then passed through different family lines. Tradition states that the piece of the broken tablet that contains the word Shabbat was broken off but in itself remained intact. This Sabbath is Tammuz 17 when it is said that the original Luchoth/tablets were shattered at the appearance of the worship of the golden(red)calf. Usually a fast day, it falls on the holy Sabbath of celebration,  prophecy(Balak parsha) and completion. We pray for Peace.

The Third Temple in America

Solomon could not understand the rite of the Para Adumah, the red heifer simply because he did not know that his temple was not complete. It needed an additional material from the other side of the Earth in a land where the red bison and the white heifer were also regarded for sacred purposes. The realm of the Chayoth haKodesh, the holy living creatures is connected to parts of the human soul, certain animals, plants and minerals and metals. These are found all around the Earth globe and peoples from all over the Earth have discovered the special connection to the heavens/soul world that different materials have. In the Hebrew teachings of the mekubalim this is called working with the Name within the physical. Global migrations of wisdom lineages were essential to manifesting the third temple which allows a flow/shefa of the divine into the physical for  global healing/tikun.  The expected tenth red heifer by some Jews was really manifested when the first ever female white bison calf was born in August of 1994(see image). This meant that the third temple was manifesting on Earth. The throwing of the ball ceremony as explained in  a previous post, of the Lakota peoples explains the connection to the red heifer and the sacred realm of the Chayoth. They needed to interface or descend to a physical level for the next phase of the human - animal- Earth adventure. The Aztec calendar stone wheel(pictured here) predicted the time frame as we see the elemental dragons(of the world of Chayoth/dragons) joining together around the outer edge. This was the August 1987 date of harmonic convergence, pretty close to the 1990 date given by the Rashbi in the Holy Zohar. I already have explained the connection between the Aztec and the Hebrew calendars which I learned from the teachings of Tony Shearer-"Beneath the Moon and Under the Sun".The rocky mountains have a sacred ARGAMAN/purple jewel(see picture of the "Idaho star"
)
which manifests the mogen David, the Jewish star and is described in The Zohar as to where it is found and how it is connected to the Kellim, the vessels of the temple. The Hopi pueblo people also knew that a peoples from over the ocean would arrive with the substances and practices, the missing piece(see image), that would  complete the "sipapu", the transition to a new world cycle.

Sacred Arrows and Ahavah/Love


Today we celebrate in America the beautiful, the refuge for many peoples over the centuries including the Jews who have been chased over the entire globe. We do celebrate the freedom to love. So here is the seal of these United States which holds the vision of the founders. YES! there is the mogen David, the Jewish star above the great bird of keen vision. The star made of thirteen stars. And the sacred bird clutches the thirteen arrows in her left talon. There is the olive branch in the other talon with thirteen leaves and thirteen olives, an ancient symbol for a true holy land of Yisrael. The ancient Jews differentiated the vast realm of soul into seven hechalot/palaces attached to the visible planets and the sun and moon. These encircle the Earth globe like layers of an onion. Each palace has a dimensional grid called a kamea/magic square. Here above is the kamea for the soul palace just above the sun which is the fourth encircling the Earth, This palace of Meadim/Mars is the next, the fifth. The natives call this palace the Red Lodge of initiation. There we see the number "13" enshrined in the center. This is the same number value(hebrew letters are also numbers) for Echad/unity and Ahavah/Love. The thirteen arrows in the talon also point to the sacred global wisdom tradition that the native elders have called the way of the bundling of the 'Brother Arrows',  This regarding a tradition that involves the unification of ancient soul lineages from around the entire globe. A tradition that is at the heart of tikun olam, the repairing of the world. This to bring in the global Peace. This we celebrate today. Oh yeah - and a little turtle talks Torah, for the scutes/plates in the middle of the back of the turtle shell, five down the center(chumash)surrounded by eight(covenant) equals the holy THIRTEEN.

The mystery of the Sar/Prince of Rome

This artwork of an ancient Roman legend of Pluto, Persephone and Orpheus, is a Rosetta Stone of sorts for the wisdom traditions. It also helps us in understanding the true shape of the world. In the aboriginal traditions all physical "elements" and things have a spirit being association in the other 'continuum" that the ancients called the soul/spirit world. In the western traditions some of these are referred to as angels(book of Enoch3). The key here is that the Roman deity of the under earth, the chief of the metals and wealth, is none other than the Sar, the angel prince of Rome. In the Hebrew lineage tradition there is an angel prince for every nation or language group. What makes the Sar of Rome so significant is that ,he is also a specific metal chief, sometimes these are referred to as the Seraphim. He is also connected to the one level of soul at the root level called nephesh. There are five distinct aspects of the human soul in the Hebrew tradition. The three persons in this painting all have distinct associations in the world of beings and planets and elements as well as in the popularly accepted realm of symbol and archetype. Music as Orpheus, the planetary spirit of Jupiter, carrier of the knowledge of the schools of Pythagoras and Plato is the great awakener here to the goodness of the world.
