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".

Peretz and Zerach/ the twins are Born to the Great Tree

In this weeks Torah parsha of Vayeishev we have the story of Joseph and his sale by his brothers after putting him in a pit. This presages the exile of the Hebrew peoples after the destruction of the Beith HaMikdash that was presaged in last weeks parsha by the wounding of Jacob's thigh. These parshot always lead up to the time of Chanukah which symbolizes the light that heals these difficulties arising from the tension between siblings on their way to initiation. Chanukah also involves the secrets of initiation of the great temple/school. What is amazing is how in this parsha we have the root of the future exile of the priestly people, we also have the hint and means for the redemption- the global redemption - with the birth of Twins/Teomim to Tamar whose names means palm tree. She is the holy Etz Chaiim/Tree of life embodied by the community of Yisrael. She is also a carrier of the staff of Judah! which is called the mateh in Torah. This mateh means she is closely aligned with the very special wisdom of initiation. Her sons are thus, Peretz who is described as the moon and ancestor of the Davidic dynasty; and the sun- Zerach, who thrust his hand out first but then withdrew it and so Peretz was then born first fully. This is the prophecy that first a bright shining light will appear for an instant first ,like the sun or a star, and then the dynasty of David Hamelech would arise to restore the sovereignty of HaShem to the Earth. the comet that brightened in a day more then any other in recorded history, has appeared shining=Zerach, in the starry mazzal of Peretz(perseus the breaker). And we are fast approaching the end of a forty day period(since the comet appeared) to light the first light of the eight days of dedicating the Holy temple of the Mother Earth. Twins, the sun and moon are born from out of the great Tree who is Life. And when ever the moon dims during her cycle since the comet has burst on the seen in Chesvan, we have the bright enormous dust cloud of the new comet brightening into visibility.This sphere like cloud of dust is now twice the diameter of the sun. Scientists/Astronomers are just scratching their heads at this happening. " and the light of the moon will be as the light of the sun" from the words of Isaiah. All in the mazzal of Peretz.The eight days of light we celebrate on the 25th of Kislev, starting next Tuesday night- are the light of the world of geulah, a celebration of freedom from oppression and exile. The Shechinah is home and accepted, the divine face of the Mother Earth is shining.

the thigh of Jacob/blue star/comet of Jacob

Sky and Earth, depth and silence-Father and Mother are speaking to us. This weeks Torah portion is about Jacob striving with the angel and becoming Israel. the wounded thigh presages the destruction of the Beith haMikdash; the diaspora of the holy peoples and the refuah, the healing that we are now seeing unfolding before our eyes. From the Zohar on Vayishlach-"Observe that the lower grades form a hierarchy, one above the other, and each different from the other, yet all linked and interlocked with each other. So is kingdom separate from kingdom, yet is each linked to the other. All the grades are held, as it were, by one chain of a certain measurement, which in turn is divided into three smaller chains which reach down and are tied to the STARS and planets, so that each grade is assigned one star or planet. Those STARS in their turn operate under the grades above."Zohar I-177b.(Sperling trans) The appearance of the new comet/Kochav in the thigh of Peretz is a loud shout that the third Beith HaMikdash is now established in the Earth. As we approach the 25th of this month of the Keshet/Bow the light that is illumining the Choseyhk/the fecund darkness will become more visible, with the will of HaShem. The Zohar tells us(Balk221b) that the star of Jacob is linked to a shaking of the ancient Holy Land - 45-miles around the ancient cave. the recent earthquake in the ancient land of Judah measured 4.5 on the Richter scale- a gentle shake with a loud message. the number 4.5 is also associated with the planetary space between Tzedeq/Jupiter(4) and Meadim/Mars(5), this is where the comet and asteroid belt lies, the home of Comet Holmes. The original dates of the appearances of this star will be significant to the students of Kabbalah. In 1892 the kochav first appeared on the lunar date of Chesvan 16. This last appearance was the solar date of October24th. Our work has been the raising of the sparks of kedusha/holiness from the darkness and uniting the soul roots of humanity. Edom has been brought into the sacred temple of initiation. The sky chiefs are speaking now. The Earth and all her peoples are going through a new Shaar/Gate of initiation. Baruch HaShem!

the lampstand/pleiades and Algol as Lilith

This is the month-Kislev which holds the secret of the Shemen, the sacred oil that is the very light of the name-HaShem. This word for light is ohr, and it is the 25th word of Torah and on the 25th of this month we celebrate this light that is the light of our own soul=neshamah which contains the word shemen in itself. The new light in the sky is also illuminated by the light of the sun which radiates the solar form of fire. It first appeared when the scientists were discovering radioactive substances(1890's-ce). These are actually rocks in the Earth that radiate light like the sun and stars. The talmud tells us that HaShem will take this hot fire of the sun out of it's pouch and heal the righteous with it. Is the use of this fire as an anointing oil, the very sod/secret of this new epoch we are entering? Is the appearance of this new star in Peretz/perseus(also the head of the ancient American water serpent-kukulcan, it's tail is the Pleiades)the validation that the light of the moon is as the light of the sun. Did Shlomo HaMelech/Solomon's wisdom of the dark of the moon involve the making of the ancient mystery of the ner tamid-the ever-burning lamp? The new bright comet Holmes first appeared near the full moon of Chesvan now and 115 years ago. Will it light up again as we approach this next full moon or will it establish a rhythm we can discern? The ancient meso-Americans saw the constellation perseus(where the comet resides) forming an ancient winged water serpent with it's tail rattle ending in the Pleaides which Hebrew astronomers called the seven lighted temple lampstand(see photo above). The new bright comet will move over the star Algol on TuB'Shevat(1/21/08) and this star was called Lillith by the Hebrew astronomers. She is associated with the dark of the moon, the creepy things in the lailah/night and the shell/kellipah of the moon herself. Has she been fully integrated into the tree of life in Earth now? This means the third temple has been renewed/dedicated-Chanukah! here in the Earth. Only the work in Earth, in the adamah of the holy peoples could have accomplished this. This weeks Torah parsha is about the oil anointing of the special stone that was Jacob's pillow. This stone technology is an ongoing theme of this blog and both written and oral Torah. Oral Torah tells us that the original staff and secret book given to Adam Rishon from Raziel, the angel of secret things, was passed down to Jacob. Aggadah tells us his "stick" had a glowing sapphire in it. Is this the interface between the physical and the being realms? Does this new bright Kochav/comet link the ancient scepter/mateh technology of the ancient Hebrews with the kochavim/stars. The Zohar is filled with references that validates this connection. The Zohar on vayechi speaks about the angel of the mateh/scepter-Metat, being born from the ancient upper Mother whose hair is made up of kochavim/comets. May we be blessed this month of the holy lamp of Kisklev with the light of the geulah that brings the peace of the Earth mother to all peoples.

the Light/Lamp of kislev

Music of the Eighth string/Kochavim:
The appearance of the kockav/comet Holmes on the twelfth of Chesvan is part of the ongoing music of the unfolding symphony of the Earth entering a new epoch. There are many synchronicities that support the possibility that this new “star” in the mazzal of Peretz/perseus the breaker, is a sign amongst the eighth level of heavens-the fixed stars, after the seven heavens of the planets and days of the week and seven lower sephirot. This expresses the womb like sphere of the upper “mother”, Binah. This ongoing dance of the kochavim/comets over the past several years is a part of the eighth string of the lute said to appear during this new world we are entering. The seven stringed lute is that of the natural world and is mirrored in the rainbow that is also implicit in this new Hebrew month of kislev, the month of the keshet/bow, which we are entering. The eighth or octave level of growth is the eight branched menorah that we light on the 25th of this month. This is the only Jewish holiday beginning in the dark of the lunar month. This lamp brings the light, the ohr, which is the 25th word of Torah in Bereishis, into the seven leveled bow of Kislev, the mazzal of kislev is the archer and the bow. The Torah portions for these couple weeks involve the archer and hunter Esau, an aspect of raw geburah/power in relation to the development of the initiate Yaakov who is struggling to cleave chesed/love and chockmah/wisdom to the raw power of the man eat man world. The prophecy in Torah states clearly to Rebecca/Rivkah, twins are in your womb and the older(Esau) will serve the younger(Yaakov). Power will come to serve the blessed work of love on Earth. This ninth month from Nisan in the lunar agricultural cycle is the month of birth and Yaakov was born in last weeks parsha and Israel is born this coming week, from his initiatory struggle with his adversaries in life. If the comet star that appeared in Chesvan near the full moon is the one directly connected to the scepter of Aaron as the Torah prophecy predicts” I see Him, but not now; I behold Him, but not near; a Star shall come out of Jacob; a Scepter shall rise out of Israel. (Numbers 24:17),
we will in the coming days and months come to understand a message revealed through it’s brightening and movement. The revealing of a connection between star and scepter will reveal the fifth continuum of being to a world coming to understand the primacy of soul and being. A rhythm is already apparent in that the two times in recorded observation that this comet made an outburst into visibility are November 6th, 1892 and October 24th, 2007. These are Chesvan 16 and Chesvan 12 on the Hebrew calendar, 115 years apart. There are 40 days between the recent outburst in Chesvan and the eve of Chanukah on Kislev 24. The star of Yaakov is said in Zohar to shine for forty days and nights which precedes the geulah/redemption.
“and then will this cause the seventh window to open to the whole world, whose star is the “Star of Jacob”, concerning which Balaam said: There shall come a star out of Jacob(Num.XXXIV,17). This star will shine for forty days and forty nights…..”Zohar II-172b(sperling trans.)
The lights of Chanukah represent the Ohr HaGanuz, the original light before creation which was stored up for the time of geulah/redemption. The 1892 dimmer appearance and first recorded observation of the comet, in Chesvan, was followed seventy days later with another small outburst on Tevet 28. If a rhythm with the moon cycle becomes apparent than this connects this kochav directly with Isaiah’s prophecy about the moon shining with the light of the sun and the Zohar connects these two prophecies of Isaiah and the star of Jacob in Numbers. This supports the revealing of the soul world and our being connections to the celestial bodies. As already stated the two brights comets that passed the earth in 1996/1997 CE, Hale-Bopp and Hayukatake, both crossed paths in the same area of the constellation Peretz/perseus that this comet is now staying in. The previous two comets crossed paths at about the place in Peretz/perseus of the star algol, called in Hebrew Rosh HaSheitan. The head of the adversary. On this coming Tub’Shevat/January 21st, the present Kochav makes a near precise passage of this star as well. Tub’shevat is the month of the shevat, the scepter/staff that is a great sod/mystery-secret in Kabbalah. This month of Kislev, we as a holy people are to bring the light of this new octave/eighth into the fecund Choseyhk/darkness of the womb/world. We light the menorah from right/chesed=love towards the left/gevurah/power and therefore reveal the balanced manifestation of divine light in our world as beauty/tifereth. The world of peace is in the heart of the Earth.

"like the stars of the heavens and like the sand of the seashore"

The great matriarchs of Israel have possessed the fourth level of soul called the chayah which originally belonged to Cheva/Eve as the mother of all living. In Zohar for this weeks parsha on Toldoth we read
“And the men of the place asked him of his wife; and he said: She is my sister. Like Abraham before him, he referred with these words to the Shekinah, which was with him as well as with Rebecca his wife; for like Abraham he carried out the injunction: “Say unto wisdom: Thou art my sister”(Prov.VII,4) They were further entitled to call her sister in virtue of the verse, “My sister, my love, my dove, my undefiled”(S.S.V,2), for it is for this that the righteous cleave to HaShem”Zohar I,140b(Sperling trans.)
We know from the writings of Kabbalah that the Chayah level of soul was passed on down through the matriarchs and so we also have the association with the sacred well as in the well of Miriam, the very fountain of life and wisdom for the people. It is the conscious joining of the chayah soul and the neshamah soul that is a critical part of the work of making the entire Earth/Adamah a holy land. In the parsha of Vayera which we sang two weeks ago we related how HaShem became visible with the three visitors to Abraham. That week an invisible star increased in brightness a million fold in a part of the night sky that has associations with the work of the holy peoples. The Torah portion of Vayera is a beginning for the sacred temple school in this cycle, relating the birth of Issac to Abraham and Sarah in their old age and the covenant at eight days with the visitation of HaShem and the angels. In the ancient Roman Christian calendar the actual day that the star became visible during that week is the feast of the “Archangel Raphael” and some torah commentaries say that he was there as one of the angels to help heal Abraham from his Bris in old age. Many synchronicities abound with this new light in the night sky. In the Hadith/tradition of Islam, Raphael is called Israfil and it is given to him to sound the final trumpet with a blast of truth. Israfil is interesting since it contains the names, Israel, Seraph and Raphael all in one. The Islamic tradition about this star of the Imam Mahdi, the twelfth Imam, as related about in the last post, also connects the star itself with the active working of the Staff of Moses/Mosheh. This star may indeed be the one connected to the inauguration of the Temple technology on Earth. This would fulfill the prophecy that the third temple would become visible and completed on Earth in this month of Chesvan. This manifestation of this light in the sky if it is shown to be directly related to a human endeavor with the “temple technology” would validate the five continuum worldview of ancient Kabbalah that gives the being/soul world, a prime place in this unfolding flower of Earth and the Olamim/universes. The Zohar says of this forty day star that heralds the geulah/world of peace, “and then will this cause the seventh window to open to the whole world, whose star is the “Star of Jacob”, concerning which Balaam said: There shall come a star out of Jacob(Num.XXXIV,17). This star will shine for forty days and forty nights…..”Zohar II-172b(sperling trans.) This week we continue in Torah with the developing of the story of the twins in Rivkah’s womb and the birth and journey of Jacob himself. His star is shining in our hearts and minds and prayers.
The photo above of the newly brilliant star in the thigh of Peretz/perseus can be found from the article in Sky and Telescope online which reports that deep blue streamers of gas are now emerging into a tail visible in telescope images. The Native american Hopi prophecy speaks about the coming of the fifth world of peace which is heralded by a new star in the sky:
That time is not far off. It will come when the Saquasohuh (Blue Star) Kachina dances in the plaza and removes his mask. He represents a blue star, far off and yet invisible, which will make its appearance soon. The time is foretold by a song sung during the Wuwuchim ceremony. It was sung in 1914 just before World War I, and again in 1940 before World War II, describing the disunity, corruption, and hatred contaminating Hopi rituals, which were followed by the same evils spreading over the world. This same song was sung in 1961 during the Wuwuchim ceremony.
The Emergence to the future Fifth World has begun. It is being made by the humble people of little nations, tribes, and racial minorities. (Book of The Hopi By: Frank Waters ).
The newly visible star that is always above and visible all night will stay in the same mazzal of stars through the springtime. The same constellation holds the star Algol,Rosh HaSheitan, the chief shaar/gate of the adversary. The verse from Bereishis that titles this post ends with, "and your offspring shall inherit the gate/shaar of its enemy."Gen.22-17
The Earth is being healed. Baruch HaShem
