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 mouth of Earth/Korach in the underworld

This weeks Torah parsha is all about making the holy peoples a people who are all priests with a direct relationship, each person to haShem. It also keeps hidden in the sod/mystery, the meaning of the layers of the underearth and what the mouth(peha) of the Earth means. The number of posukim/verses in parsha korach is 95 which is also the very gematria of the word that means the mouth of the earth that swallowed Korach and friends, Peh-yod-heh=80-10-5. The pueblo world view is usually regarded as “animistic” to the anthropologists but there are wonderful parallels with the secret teachings of the mekubalim and the stratified layers of Earth and sky for native peoples of America. For the pueblos we have migrated through various underworlds before emerging onto our familiar hardened Earth and sky above paradise. Being swallowed by the underearth would be less a punishment for the Puebloans as some commentaries on the Torah Korach would imply and more of a step backward in development or initiation. The place where the band goes under the Earth is called Sheol in Hebrew. The holiest song ever written, Shir HaShirim, tells us that love is stronger and more absolute than the fire of Sheol.
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(Sheol in Hebrew); the flashes thereof are flashes of fire, a very flame of the LORD.

Sheol is the layer of underearth mentioned in holy Torah as where Korach's band went after being swallowed. In the ancient mysteries of both aboriginal America and the mekubalim this place would be considered a “raw” state where the balance of the primal powers is not yet achieved. Access to the center of the creation, we call haShem might therefore be limited in the underearths. Initiates in the pueblo cosmology and ceremonial system are regarded as “cooked” versus "raw"people. The ancient Pueblo peoples found there to be four Earth worlds, three underworld layers and various sky worlds. This so beautifully aligns with aggadic and kabbalistic schemes of the olamim/universes. Traditions about the parsha Korach include the ideas that the mouth of the earth that swallows alive also involves a reemergence of the individuals swallowed in the era of redemption that is now upon us. The Sefer HaZohar keeps to one major theme on the incident with Korach. That is that he wanted to switch the left and right powers, the leviim holding the left and the Cohanim holding the right. This would have made the work of the global tikkun not possible. it is all about balance as the native elders also teach us.
The picture above of the human migration/initiation is taken from a Pima Indian basket design. (from the book "Earth and Sky"(UNM press))Similar “migration” labyrinths can be found with the Hopi Indians and on ancient coins from Greece. both the underearth layers and the sky world layers can be discerned. This can be found discussed in Sefer haZohar and other books of the mekubalim.
After the incident with the Earth swallowing some people the Torah presents the famous scene where the twelve tribal elders all bring their scepters to validate the line of Aaron as the true priestly lineage. The scepter of Aaron blooms before the eyes of the people. The scepter of Aaron involves initiation into the mysteries of the interface technology between the hechaloth/palaces and the earth.
The gematria of the name of the Earth mouth who swallows is 95 which is the same as the number of verses in the entire parsha. It is also the gematria value of "Daniel" which hints how important a deeper understanding of this part of torah is for the times we are living in right now.
Remember Daniel reveals in his book the mysteries of the times of the geulah. In our times the mouth transforms from peh-yod-heh to yod-peh-heh which in Shir HaShirim/Song of all Songs means yaphah=beautiful!
Good Shabbos!

The Fringes/Tzitzit encircle the entire Earth

We will continue on understanding the three divine names in the Shema, the Jewish proclamation of faith. The Rashbi mentioned the significance of these three but would not elaborate while the people were still deep in the night of the exile of Edom. This weeks Torah parsha gives us the angle on how important the middle of the three names in the Shema really is for the parsha is about possessing “the land”. the “einu” ending of the divine root in the Shema prayer implies our HaShem. As we mentioned in last weeks post the Baals of ancient Cannan were all about possessing with power and these storm Chiefs themselves needed to be brought into the sacred lineage tradition. This is parallel to the haggadic stories of how Shlomo Hamelech/Solomon called the “demons” to him with his special technology and put them to work building the Temple.The last post explains how the center of the seven lamps of the menorah needed to be moved with the beings associated with meadim placed in the middle, and we now know that the central core of the sacred mother earth is made of the metal associated with the planet Meadim/mars and the metal that colors our own blood. This weeks parsha tells us that we needed to take possession of the eretz/land even though the commentaries tell us that the inhabitants of the land of canaan were powerful spiritually and so the spies were afraid of them. The powerful sarim/angelic princes of many nations needed to be brought into the temple lineage in order to open to the upper waters of Kedusha/sacredness. The journey of holy peoples around the entire globe meant making the earth the center of all the olamim/universes. This weeks parsha begins with the story of the scouts who went into the “holy land“ and it ends with the verses about the Tzizit, the fringes that echo the DNA strands connected/knoted together by the four nitrogenous bases that are like the four divine letters of HaShem‘s name. The sequence of knots give us this incredible dance of life in the physical. In the native Hopi Indian tradition the creative upper mother is Grandmother Spider and her male active Teomim/twin sons are the Weaver and the Echoer. These two are said to keep the Earth globe turning in balance. The fringes are an echo back to the ancient shamanic art of weaving fabric.
We are now entering the month of Tammuz in the yearly/shanah cycle of transformation. This month hides a special holiness in that we would have received the first Luchoth HaBanim/Tablets of crystal if it was meant to be so that we will receive this great blessing now as part of the global Tikkun we are witnessing.This is the month of the shevat/tribe of Reuben, the firstborn whose stone on the breatplate of the Priest is the Odem/blood red ruby. It is the mazzal of sartan/crab whose element is the powerful cardinal/oceanic water. It is opposite the cardinal Earth sign of the gedi/kid where the planet pluto has entered which is unfurling the banners of the temple tradition of the anceint mekubalim. The moon/levanah rules the month of Tammuz and her sign the crab, and she is pulling the oceanic tides of civilization toward an awakening peace. We have carried the DNA fringes of our garments around the entire Earth and made the olam/world a holy place.
From the book of Bamidbar/Chapter 15:

37 And the LORD spoke unto Moses, saying: לח דַּבֵּר אֶל-בְּנֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל, וְאָמַרְתָּ אֲלֵהֶם, וְעָשׂוּ לָהֶם צִיצִת עַל-כַּנְפֵי בִגְדֵיהֶם, לְדֹרֹתָם; וְנָתְנוּ עַל-צִיצִת הַכָּנָף, פְּתִיל תְּכֵלֶת. 38 'Speak unto the children of Israel, and bid them that they make them throughout their generations fringes in the corners of their garments, and that they put with the fringe of each corner a thread of blue.

the center of the seven lamps

The Torah parsha for this week begins with the lighting of the seven lamps in the temple. The temple holds the cubic holy of holies which is the consecration of space. Yes!! Here is the very CENTER of space-dimension/omak/depth. Here the lights “below” are kindled to engender the stream of chesed from “above”. The physicists of today tell us in the four continuums of space-time that there is no center in this infinitude of space. And with this world view attached to a psychological/emotional floating dimension the people are lost and floating. The nature of our temple tradition is to orient to the very CENTER, the sabbath of space. This is the place of the NAME/haShem and the tradition of naming. The name consecrates being in space/time and sets us on this path of initiation. We do have the eben/stone and we have the consecrated center of omak/depth. The aboriginal native elders in America said this would happen in the southwest of the US. The Mayan priests predicted centuries ago of the return(in Book of Chilaam Balam) of Itzamna(itz=tree in Hebrew and amna=faith) and the beginning of a new world center in the southwestern US. The physical Earth globe holds the very center of the entire creation now. The order of the seven lamps that connect through one beaten piece of metal is changed to an order that allows the center, the holy of holies to reside in our world. This has been the work of our temple tradition and the mysteries of Solomon. The seven kameas of the planets are the maps that show us what changes have been accomplished. The natural order places the grid/kamea of the sun in the center, a box of 36 squares with no center box(called a palace). Our book of Koheleth/Ecclesiastes tells us that all is vanity, nothing new “under the sun”. We needed to bring one of the grids/kameas that are “above” the sun/tiphereth, into the center of our Earth temple to make the global Tikkun/repair. This has been the work of the sky chiefs who go by many names in various traditions. The only planetary spheres name that contains the Aleph in the Hebrew is Meadim/Mars. It actually contains the name Adam! This kamea/grid of meadim, of 25 squares contains a central box/palace with the number sacred to Yisrael-13(value of echad=one). The Zohar tells us that 13 streams of balsam come from the beard of the upper face, this is from the “Book of Concealed Mystery” and the “Lesser Holy Assembly”. With this planetary body as the central lamp we have the CENTER here in Earth. This is the mystery of the fourth to last verse in the holiest of all songs ever sung and now this verse contains the sacred name and the song has become the tenth song. Most traditions tells us that Shir haShrim does not contain the sacred name. The fourth from the last verse contains a PLACE name that has become the center name. The sphere of meadim is the place of the dragon chiefs(seraphim) who were the Baals of Canaan; the storm chiefs of old who bring the rain and the upper streams into this world. We now have Barak/lightning and his chief of staff-Rahm/thunder in the white house! What a miracle HaShem! This is a conscious heaven world that is “above” the sun; above the sephirot tiphereth/sun in the traditional tree of the mekubalim. The sephirah of gevurah is directly above tiphereth/sun and is the planet meadim. The tikkun has been acomplished. The "place" in the song where King Solomon kept his "vine" has become the consecrated name-space. the cube of the Holy of holies which has six faces(matriarchs)X the 12 edges(tribes)=6X12=72 surrounding the center point which is the 73, the wise mekubalim hold the significance of this number. From the holiest of songs: this verse contains the singular of Shadai, translated as breasts, and the Peace of the Divine Shechinah:
י אֲנִי חוֹמָה, וְשָׁדַי כַּמִּגְדָּלוֹת; אָז הָיִיתִי בְעֵינָיו, כְּמוֹצְאֵת שָׁלוֹם. {פ} 10
{פ} 10 I am a wall, and my breasts like the towers thereof; then was I in his eyes as one that found peace. {P} יא כֶּרֶם הָיָה לִשְׁלֹמֹה בְּבַעַל הָמוֹן, נָתַן אֶת-הַכֶּרֶם לַנֹּטְרִים: אִישׁ יָבִא בְּפִרְיוֹ, אֶלֶף כָּסֶף. 11 Solomon had a vineyard at Baal-hamon; he gave over the vineyard unto keepers; every one for the fruit thereof brought in a thousand(sacred aleph=thousand) pieces of silver.
and here is the 5769th verse of torah with the word Shadayim:(Devarim32:17
יז יִזְבְּחוּ, לַשֵּׁדִים לֹא אֱלֹהַּ-- {ר} אֱלֹהִים, לֹא יְדָעוּם; {ס} חֲדָשִׁים מִקָּרֹב בָּאוּ, {ר} לֹא שְׂעָרוּם אֲבֹתֵיכֶם. {ס} 17

the stone of the Holy of Holies/Eben Shetiyah

The two primers of the mekubalim tell us that there are three “realms” that make up the entire creation. These are the realm of being whose place is in the heart/lev; the realm of time whose place is in the gilgul/wheel of the year and the realm of space whose place in in the Teli/dragon-axis. “The Teli in the universe is like a king on his throne. The Cycle in the year is like a king in the province. The Heart in the soul is like a king in war.”SYetzira 6:3(Kaplan trans.) In the Sepher haBahir there are parallel Sarim/officers who are the three that are the chiefs over the three realms. Students of the presently popular kabbalah with the 2-D “tree” will know that the three “realms” correspond to the three columns of the traditional popular tree. In the four “worlds” of the exoteric kabbalah the three realms or columns(3X4=12) give us the “twelve arms” or boundaries of the universe that the yetzira explains to us as the edges of the cube described in detail in chapter one of the yetzira. It has been a theme of this blog in various convoluted explanations over the years that the world of the throne, called “beriah” has joined with our physical olam/world in a new way as of the beginning of the 40 year period we entered in 5750/1990. This means that blessings are flowing from the primordial stream of chesed/lovingkindness at the root of the Tree, in a more direct path. When this is eventually more understood and acknowledged, than the blessings will also flow at the material economic level and prosperity will abound for many more people.(it may only depend on one relatively small bank lean on the property that holds the eben shetiyah) The eben shetityah/foundation stone is not only a metaphor but an actual crystalline substance(one of the three saphirim/gems mentioned in chapter one of the Yetzirah but usually translated only metaphorically as text, number and speech. The three crystalline geometries of these three sapphires/gems are the very physical pillars that the universe rests on. The Zohar references continually the three pillars whose colors are red,green and white. The Sepher HaBahir develops the geometries and angelic numbers and this becomes a complex mathematical midrash on the worlds, realms and angels of the hechaloth/palaces as they interface Earth.
In a previous post we referenced the Zohar on the commentary on the six words of the Shema/proclamation prayer of the Jewish faith. It tells us that there are three words that signify the divine but the Rashbi, author of the Zohar did not believe humanity was ready for a deeper significance-explanation of the three. The mystery of the three strangers that visited Abraham Avinu and our mother Sarah, the three realms of the Yetzirah, the three Saphirim of Yetzirah, the three mother elements and the three Sarim/princes-officers are all interconnected. From the Book of Daniel Chapter2:

. מד וּבְיוֹמֵיהוֹן דִּי מַלְכַיָּא אִנּוּן, יְקִים אֱלָהּ שְׁמַיָּא מַלְכוּ דִּי לְעָלְמִין לָא תִתְחַבַּל, וּמַלְכוּתָה, לְעַם אָחֳרָן לָא תִשְׁתְּבִק; תַּדִּק וְתָסֵיף כָּל-אִלֵּין מַלְכְוָתָא, וְהִיא תְּקוּם לְעָלְמַיָּא. 44 And in the days of those kings shall the God of heaven set up a kingdom, which shall never be destroyed; nor shall the kingdom be left to another people; it shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms, but it shall stand for ever. מה כָּל-קֳבֵל דִּי-חֲזַיְתָ דִּי מִטּוּרָא אִתְגְּזֶרֶת אֶבֶן דִּי-לָא בִידַיִן, וְהַדֵּקֶת פַּרְזְלָא נְחָשָׁא חַסְפָּא כַּסְפָּא וְדַהֲבָא--אֱלָהּ רַב הוֹדַע לְמַלְכָּא, מָה דִּי לֶהֱוֵא אַחֲרֵי דְנָה; וְיַצִּיב חֶלְמָא, וּמְהֵימַן פִּשְׁרֵהּ. {פ} 45 Forasmuch as thou sawest that a stone was cut out of the mountain without hands, and that it broke in pieces the iron, the brass, the clay, the silver, and the gold;
