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 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;
