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".

The Crown of the Seraphim/Comet Holmes

the million fold brightening of the newly visible kochav/comet in the constellation of perseus/Peretz is wonderful to view. The golden glow is spreading out night after night and may widen as large as a full moon according to some astronomers' predictions. The star has appeared in the thigh region of the figure and this relates to the progeny of the line of Judah and Peretz, who we know as David. This also fulfills the prophecies in the world of Islam of the appearance of a comet and a star in the east that will look like the moon, that is a sign of their return of the Imam Mahdi. For them it is also a sign that the scepter of Mosheh/Musa/Moses is now being held. In next weeks Torah parsha on Chayei Sarah, the words end with a list of the twelve princes who descend from Ishmael. The last is in the Hebrew, Kadimah. We recognize the parallel to the twelve Imams of Islam and Kadimah being the root for Adam Kadmon, the complete and original Human. The works of the priestly lineages is to unite the 70 soul roots of all of humanity and bring peace to the world with a new awakening to how we are all related in the being world.

This star has become visible during the week that we read in Torah of the visible appearance of HaShem to Abraham with the three stranger visitors. Two of the visitors then visited Lot. Lot becomes the progenitor of Ruth the Moabite and with the line of Judah and Peretz, the line of David springs. This month of Chesvan as stated before is when the first Beis Hamikdash was completed and when the third is to appear complete from the fourth heaven. The Torah tells us that the swords of the Kerubim guard the way to the Etz Chaiim/Tree of Life. Two bright comet swords; Comet Hale-Bopp and Comet Hayuketake, have come past the Earth in the last ten years and crossed the same constellation perseus/Peretz, where this golden globe has now appeared. We may count the days from this new stars appearance and find the 49th and 50th days are the last two nights of Channukah this year. From the Zohar we have:

"Zohar-Balak 221b We have learned that in the future the Holy One will rebuild Yerushalyim and show one steady star, flashing with 70 pillars of fire, and with 70 sparks which illuminate (receive light) from it in the middle of the sky. There will be 70 other stars which are commanded and controlled from it, and they will illuminate and flame in the sky for 70 days. "

This star then is a sign that the soul sparks of the nations, the 70, will have been united. 70 days from when this newly visible Kochav/comet has appeared brings us to the first day of the new secular year. Edom has been brought into the priestly lineage.

We pray for peace with the daily wheel of this sacred Earth.

bright kochav/comet has appeared in the sky/MarChesvan 5768

"In the past 24 hours, a spectacular event has taken place involving the periodic comet P/Holmes (17P). Its predicted brightness is about magnitude 17 however last night it was discovered by the Spanish amateur, Juan Antonio HenrĂ­quez Santana to have undergone a tremendous outburst having attained magnitude 10 at that time (Oct 24 0h UT). It was a similar outburst in 1892 that led to its discovery. Latest reports (Seiichi Yoshida, Oct 24 13h UT) indicate that it is stellar in appearance and 3RD MAGNITUDE in brightness: so bright in fact that it is readily visible to the unaided eye. That's almost one million times brighter than normal ! Fortunately for UK-based observers the comet is well placed for observation and is visible throughout the entire night. Its position at 0h UT tonight (Oct 24/25) will be: R.A. 03h 53.0m, Dec. +50 08' Its appearance will probably be that of a fairly bright naked-eye star moving at an apparent rate of close to 10 arcmin per day at PA 298 deg. It!is currently 1.63 AU (245 million km) from the Earth. Observations are strongly encouraged and should be reported to Jonathan Shanklin, Director of the Comet Section."
This comet has brightened in the constellation the Greeks called Perseus which is related to the Hebrew name Peretz. He you may recall is the son of Judah in Torah who is the progenitor of the line of King David. Some ancient Hebrews considered this constellation the David who is triumphant over his adversaries.

We are moving to the full moon of Chesvan this Shabbos when we sing parsha Vayera about the visitation to Abraham and Sarah of the divine presence and the revelation of a healing for the tzaddik/righteous person that foreshadows a global healing for the Earth. The third temple is becoming visible for those awake.

the Wheel of Eight/the Lyre of eight strings

We are in the ancient eighth month, the time when the pleiades culminates at zenith at midnight. This is a revered place on the wheel of the year. In the tradition of the whispered kabbalah this is the time that the entire globe, "round as a ball", as the Zohar tells us in volume III-Vayikra 10a.becomes aware in a new way, a "temple" becomes completed. Remember the first manuscripts of this great book appeared about 200 years before Copernicus told the world that the Earth was a sphere. Now we are moving again from a "flat earth" to a "round earth". This "round" now being about the ocean of being/soul that the entire physical universe floats within. The integration of the teachings and wisdom of a temple school is found also in Zohar and other texts as the great wheel, the day, the month, the year and a lifetime. Ezekiel's vision of the wheel of initiation is found in the Americas as well in the medicine wheel teachings. The wheel can be worked with the four spokes giving eight points on the round and the continuum-road of self through the center vertically. Here we find "wheel of Earth" as the ancient text of kabbalah quoted last year at this time gives us. The Earth is made into wheel of Earth when the crown of the Seraphim is completed here. This crown has a distance of 502 years according to the Sepher Hechaloth((Hebrew Enoch). This number may also be found by adding up the years of the three Jewish patriarchs lives. There are also two ways of calculating how long it would take in years of duration to bring the Wheel of Earth Chayoth fully united to the Earth sphere herself. The Sepher HaAggadah/Book of Legends gives us one calculation. We are told that it takes a distance of 500 years to get to the first heaven. 500 more years distance to traverse the first heaven and so on through the seven heavens. Therefore you will find that it takes 3500 years to get to the fourth heaven. The legends tell us that it is in the fourth heaven that the eternal third Temple may be found. This same calculation can be found when adding up the distances in years of the spans of the celestial beings as found in the Book of Palaces/Hechaloth. 2500 years for the body of an Ophan, 248 years for the wing of a Cherub and 502 years for the crown of the Seraph. With two wings we have a creature built of a 3498 journey in years. We have come 3500 years since the beginning of the Covenant with Abraham and Sarah as given in last weeks Torah parsha Lech Lecha- Go and make a sacred Earth of this land of Adamah. Bring in the eternal temple chariot supported by the celestial beings fully integrated with the holy Mother Earth. Nine degrees of these celestial beings from the ancient text. In the center of the eight spokes is the Wheel of Earth. The eighth month in an eight year and we sang Lech Lecha on the eighth day of Chesvan! We are in a time that we have gone past the natural wheel of seven with the discovery of matter that radiates light. Students of the alchemical Kabbalah will understand the wheel of the seven days and seven metals that hold the power of each day. Saturday traditionally corresponds to the "heaviest" of the metals in atomic number-82. Our times however are punctuated by the fact that we know about metals so heavy they radiate light like the stars. These times are spoken about with a warning from the Talmud, "The Holy One, Blessed is He, takes the hot sun out of its pouch, and the righteous are cured by it while the evil are judged by it. (Nedarim 8b; see the Pri Tzaddik, Parashas Bo 1). Some Rabbis because of this inference are sure there must be a nuclear nightmare before the redemption/Geulah may begin. They are not aware of what we have right now. There will not be a nuclear holocaust. How can this writer of this little blog be so sure? The third eternal temple has already been consecrated in a sense by the light of a material with the atomic number 88. A piece of the sun, found in the Earth's crust. How is this for the number workings of HaShem? The musical workings and creative dance of the natural world is said to be orchestrated with a lyre of seven strings. The covenant at eight- the eighth mitzvah of Abraham after the seven given to Noach. Torah tells us we are to make a holy wheel of this entire sacred planet.In The times of the ingathering we are to listen for the Harp of Eight strings. Who may hear this sound, this sweet music? The wheel of the octave, the ogdoad, the eight legged weavers of the Earth, the nine degrees of Chayoth, weaving a tapestry of various beautiful colors in Earth and sky. We have a temple, "round as a ball"Zohar III-10a.

Additional weekly teaching story/the Rainbow Lodge

This is an ancient Native American teaching story about the Rainbow lodge; the Temple of initiation in the Americas: Notice here that the

Lodge Chief, the invisible one, has a sister. She is the Shekinah, the Mother Earth herself.

The Invisible One
A Micmac Legend
There was once a large Indian village situated on the border of a lake, Nameskeek' oodun Kuspemku. At the end of the place was a lodge, in which dwelt a being who was always invisible. He had a sister who attended to his wants, and it was known that any girl who could see him might marry him. Therefore there were indeed few who did not make the trial, but it was long ere one succeeded.
And it passed in this wise. Towards evening, when the Invisible One was supposed to be returning home, his sister would walk with any girls who came down to the shore of the lake. She indeed could see her brother, since to her he was always visible, and beholding him she would say to her companions, "Do you see my brother?" And they would mostly answer, "Yes," though some said, "Nay," -- alt telovejich, aa alttelooejik. And then the sister would say, "Cogoowa' wiskobooksich?" "Of what is his shoulder-strap made?" But as some tell the tale, she would inquire other things, such as, "What is his moose-runner's haul?" or, "With what does he draw his sled?" And they would reply, "A strip of rawhide," or "A green withe," or something of the kind. And then she, knowing they had not told the truth, would reply quietly, "Very well, let us return to the wigwam!"
As they entered the place she would bid them not to take a certain seat, for it was his. After they had helped to cook the supper they would wait with great curiosity to see him eat. Truly he gave proof that he was a real person, for as he took off his moccasins they became visible, and his sister hung them up; but beyond this they beheld nothing not even when they remained all night, as many did.
There dwelt in the village an old man, a widower, with three daughters. The youngest of these was very small, weak, and often ill, which did not prevent her sisters, especially the eldest, treating her with great cruelty. The second daughter was kinder , and sometimes took the part of the poor abused little girl, but the other would burn her hands and face with hot coals; yes, her whole body was scarred with marks made by torture, so that people called her Oochigeaskw (the rough-faced girl). And when her father, coming home, asked what it meant that the child was so disfigured, her sister would promptly say that it was the fault of the girl herself, for that, having been forbidden to go near the fire, she had disobeyed and fallen in.
Now it came to pass that it entered the heads of the two elder sisters of this poor girl that they would go and try their fortune at seeing the Invisible One. So they clad themselves in their finest and strove to look their fairest; and finding his sister at home when with her to the wonted walk down to the water. Then when He came, being asked if they saw him, they said, "Certainly," and also replied to the question of the shoulder-strap or sled cord, "A piece of rawhide." In saying which, they lied, like the rest, for they had seen nothing, and got nothing for their pains.
When their father returned home the next evening, he brought with him many of the pretty little shells from which weiopeskool, or wampum, was made, and they were soon engaged napawejik (stringing them).
That day poor little Oochigeaskw', the burnt-faced girl, who had always run barefoot, got a pair of her father's old moccasins, and put them into water that they might become flexible to wear. And begging her sisters for a few wampum shells, the eldest did but call her "a lying little pest," but the other gave her a few. And having no clothes beyond a few rags, the poor creature went forth and got herself from the woods a few sheets of birch bark, of which she made a dress, putting some figures on the bark. And this dress she shaped like those worn of old. So she made a petticoat and a loose gown, a cap, leggings, and handkerchief, and, having put on her father's great old moccasins,--whcih came nearly up to her knees,--she went forth to try her luck. For even this little thing would see the Invisible One in the great wigwam at the end of the village.
Truly her luck had a most auspicious beginning, for there was one long storm of ridicule and hisses, yells and hoots, from her own door to that of which she went to seek. Her sisters tried to shame her, and bade her to stay home, but she would not obey; and all the idlers, seeing this strange little creature in her odd array, cried, "Shame!" But she went on, for she was greatly resolved; it may be that some spirit inspired her.
Now this poor small wretch in her mad attire, with her hair singed off and her little face as full of burns and scars as there are holes in a sieve, was, for all this, mostly kindly received by the sister of the Invisible One; for this noble girl knew more than the mere outside of thins as the world knows them. And as the brown of the evening sky became black, she took her down to the lake. And erelong the girls knew that He had come. Then the sister said, "Do you see him?" And the other replied in awe, "Truly I do, --and He is wonderful." "And what is his sled string?" "It is," she replied, "the Rainbow." And great fear was on her. "But, my sister," said the other, "what is his bow-string?" "His bow-string is Ketaksoowowcht: (the Spirit's Road, the Milky Way).
"Thou hast seen him, said the sister. And, taking the girl home, she bathed her, and as she washed all the scars disappeared from face and body. Her hair grew again; it was very long, and like a blackbird's wing. Her eyes were like stars. In all the world was no such beauty. Then from her treasures she gave her a wedding garment, and adorned her. Under the comb, as she combed her, her hair grew. It was a great marvel to behold.
Then, having done this, she bade her take the wife's seat in the wigwam,--that by which her brother sat, the seat next the door. And when He entered, terrible and beautiful, he smiled and said, "Wajoolkoos!" "So we are found out!" "Alajulaa." "Yes," was her reply. So she became his wife.

The Ark of Initiation/Autumnal Lodge of Colors

We have now entered the rainy month of Chesvan when the first Beith HaMikdash/temple was completed and when the third Holy House is destined to be revealed to the whole world. We have spent the days of the last two months of Elul and Tishre, 58 days sweetening our souls. The Torah parsha Noach always begins in the month of Chesvan. The value of the name of Noach-nun-cheth is 58. He is the righteous initiate in the temple mysteries who has received the good heart with a relationship to HaShem as we have sweetened our own hearts with the days of teshuvah, awe, and festival(58 days in all). He also has received the mystery of the crystal interface with which to build a holy house, an ark which is to receive the light of the forty day flood. This is parallel to the Sinaitic revelation of forty days. It is only a destructive flood to those who cannot withstand this flood of the upper waters of celestial light. Noach is one of the people mentioned in the legends/aggadah that receives the original secret book of sapphire given to the first Adam by Raziel, the angel of secret things. Noach is said to have used this jewel to light the ark and distinguish day from night during the forty days. The Zohar goes deeply into the colors of initiation which are related to the colors of the special jewels and the covenant of the keshet/rainbow. The colors are directly related to the vision of Ezekiel, the foundation stone of the holy temple and the faces of the four holy creatures/Hayoth HaKodesh.. This month of Chesvan embodies one of these four faces, that of the Eagle. This month involves the great depths(snake, scorpion) and the most awesome heights(eagle). It is the alternating heights and depths that bring the initiate into the most profound levels of the lodge of colors, the tree of the omakim, the directional depths of a shamanic life journey. The Zohar for the parsha Noach tells us,” The firmament is imprinted, at the four corners of a square, with four figures, of a lion, an eagle, an ox, and a man…Further the firmament with its enclosed square contains the gamut of all the colors. Outstanding are four colors…green, red, white, and sapphire, which is made up of all these colors. Hence it is written, “ As the appearance of the bow that is in the cloud, in the day of rain, so was the appearance of the brightness round about. This was the appearance of the likeness of the glory of HaShem, containing, that is to say, all shades of all colors” Zohar I-71b. The Zohar then connects the Eben Shetiyah, the foundation stone of the temple tradition to this bow of colors of initiation. We have in the Torah this teaching about the rainbow: “ This is the sign of the covenant that I give between Me and you, and every living being that is with you, to generations forever”(Bereisith 9-12) These are the colors that the Kabbalists explain as directions on the great Tree. They are degrees of initiation with corresponding tastes, smells and textures. The eleven ingredients of the temple incense is a part of this mystery tradition. The sacred tree of life gives us resins, flowers, and fruits that awaken our senses to the bounty of Adamah/Earth. We learn about the fruits of the Tree throughout the great Shanah/wheel of the year. The gifts of the Source continually unfolding, flowering and ripening with color and fragrance. In the beginning of the Zohar on this weeks parsha Lech lecha we have a beautiful poem that sums up the lodge of colors, better known as the Tree of the Omakim/Depths or sephirot.
1) One mounts to one side.
2) One descends on that side.
3) One enters between the two.(Abraham and Sarah and the covenant)
4) Two crown themselves with a third.(the Keter-crown-vertice of fifth continuum(crown-kingdom) towards the unchanging“good“)
5) Three enter into one.(the three patriarchs and the priesthood)
6) One produces various colors. (Tiphereth radiates the seven colors "below")
7)Six of them descend on one side and six of them on the other. (spatial directions of this world)
8) Six enter into twelve.(the tribes as embodying the temple building and the edges of the cube of the stone)
9)Twelve bestir themselves to form twenty-two.(the cube=12 edges,6 faces, 3 axis and the center stone=22)
10) Six are comprised in ten.(the six are the matriarchs-Sarah, Rebecca, Rachel, Leah, Zilpah, Bilhah)
11) Ten are fixed in one. (Malchut=vertice of 5th continuum as tabernacle stone and Shekinah)(Zohar I-77a)
The seven colors of the six walls of the tabernacle-cube and the seventh center stone of foundation, the special sapphire, are the brighter rainbow being revealed now to the world. The Zohar tells us this bow of colors would brighten in the days of the third temple, meaning its significance would deepen. Those people who have come upon the Native American teachings of the medicine wheels; with the colors and the winds and the elements as well as all living beings and their places on the wheel of initiation, can not help but get the shivers as we come to recognize this lodge of initiation coming from the people’s wisdom of the Earth lodge and joining with the bow in the sky lodge. Heaven and Earth are joining and this Temple that is eternal in the heavens is becoming visible here in sacred Earth. In this eighth month of the wheel we can go out at midnight as the Zohar tells us to do and see the scintillating constellation of the Pleiades, the seven sisters directly overhead at Zenith-the top of the starry sky tree. Cultures all over the Northern latitudes celebrate these nights as especially "Hallowed"(November first-Gregorian) because these seven rainbow stars of the ancesters crown the sky tree at midnight this time of year. A full, sweet and beautiful month of Chesvan, a month of colors, to everyone!

"The flowers appear on the Earth"/The Keshet Lodge

We begin anew the cycle of our sacred circle. This circle that defines the divine immanence in our world is the 22 Hebrew letters and the living Torah. This shamans magic circle is how we affect the Earth in becoming the tabernacle that glows with the primordial light. The prologue of the book of this light, Sepher HaZohar, describes this sacred circle of the numinous, thirteen petals, the attributes of mercy, and five strong sepals, the gates of redemption. These are the number of words in the Torah that separate the first mention of the creative power - the Elohim. Eighteen words in all 13 + 5 = 18. We are now in this year 5768 completing the first 18 years since the year 5750 when at the passover we entered the period called the ingathering. The eighteen also equals the value of the Hebrew word for life and the number of wings of the three strangers who first visited Abraham and began a covenantal arrow through time that would bring "the time of singing and the voice of the turtledove in our land" as the Song of Songs and the prologue of Zohar relates to us. The three (3)strangers,the five(5) sepals of the Rose,the covenant at eight(8)days and the thirteen(13)petals we recognize as the important numbers in the Fibonacci series-the golden mean unfolding as the signature of Life -the fifth continuum of being in the physical universe. This is the life=18 of the Chayah who is the bundle of life of the being world that supports the physical creation. Ezekiel saw all of this including the Chayah on the sacred sapphire throne. This prologue of Zohar also tells us about the souls who appear in our time to announce the fulfillment of the great work; "Thus when Joseph entered the Holy Land he planted them there, and thus they "appeared on the Earth" and revealed themselves there. When do they become visible? When the rainbow/keshet betokens that "the time of pruning is come"...and who is it that upholds the world and causes the patriarchs to appear? It is the voice of tender children studying the Torah; and for their sakes the world is saved..." Zohar I-1a.

The rainbow is the visible key to the most secret and sacred of the lodge of initiations- the seven colors that the celestial beings may wear as the sign of their office. Our Earth lodge has entered a new time, the fifth world amongst American Native Elders, where the planet Herself has joined with the rainbow chiefs in a new cycle. The planet Meadim/Mars in the sky is being a bright herald signifying this change to the entire world as mentioned in the previous post. This globe gets ever brighter in the sky as we complete the first eighteen years of the ingathering. We pray that the people will listen for the sound and see the rainbow lodge of color. For the traditional Jews we are entering the completion stage of the Nineteen blessings of the Amidah, the standing prayer. The nineteenth is completed with the Birchat HaChamah, the blessing of the sacred Sun at the eve of the pesach,5769. Our very footsteps are dancing a holy rhythm.
