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 Eight/Earth temple/Chanukah!

This week we light the eight lights of the menorah that honor the success of the priestly peoples in raising the sparks of kedusha/holiness and making the Mother Earth into a temple of praise for sacred Chayah/Life. In this weeks Torah parsha/Miketz, always sung on Chanukah, we have the meeting of the two brothers Joseph and Benjamin after 22 years of bitter separation. Joseph has been given the signet ring of the Pharaoh who is said in commentaries to represent HaShem as the sovereign of Earth. This is the only mention in Tanach of the signet ring, the other is in the scroll of Esther. She gets the ring of the Persian King, who is also said to represent the rule of HaShem on Earth. The ring as part of the sacred temple technology of the Hebrews becomes important in the literature of Kabbalah and Zohar as well as the pseudopigraphical writings. The actual letters of the word Chanukah - Chet-nun-vav-caf-heh are also found in the three words describing the animal that is dined on by the brothers; tevcha tevach vehachen -Bereishis,43:16. These five letters are not in order but this is the only place in Torah where the letters that spell Chanukah with the vav are found in a row. This presages the continuation of the holy Temple tradition through the exiles right after Joseph's freedom and rise to power presages the geulah/redemption globally. Later Joseph has his silver goblet put into Benjamin's sack. The goblet represents the sacred traditions of the precious temple vessels. The sacks of the tribal brothers represents their territories and it is in Benjamin's territory that the Beit haMikdash is destined to first be built. Benjamin's meal portion when the brothers dine, is said to be five times the portion of his brothers. These are the five levels of soul that the complete human becomes initiated into as part of the temple tradition. The word for light/Ohr is also mentioned five times in the book of Beresheis/Genesis. We have discussed previously the importance of the numbers five and eight in the Fibonacci series and in the Kameas/planetary/day number grids. The holy of Holies in the Temple incorporates the sacred cube in it's geometry and the cube has eight corners that correspond to the eight boxes of numbers in the 3X3 grid of the Sabbath. The number five is in the central box. The peoples of the earth are being consciously initiated into a new level of initiation involving the Kamea of the Sabbath and the planet Earth as a holy wheel/ophan. This is also spoken about as the kinoor of eight strings that comes into play during this new epoch we are entering. We are going beyond the natural bow/keshet of seven that is the sign of this month of Kislev. We are lighting the fecund choseych/darkness of the world in a new way.the sky chiefs/celestials are helping us become aware of these changes with the new stars that have been appearing. This is all directly connected to the special cave of Machpelah where the patriarchs and matriarchs reside. This holiday celebrates the awakening/enlivening of those "dead" and asleep. The lights are the lights of awakening!
