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".

Month of the Aryeh/Lion and the Green Stone of Av/Shimon

From the great Mayan creation story in their bible, the Popul Vuh:
“There was nothing brought together, nothing which could make a noise, nor anything which might move, or tremble, or could make noise in the sky.
There was nothing standing; only the calm water, the placid sea, alone and tranquil. Nothing existed.
There was only immobility and silence in the darkness, in the night. Only the Creator, the Maker, Tepeu, Gucumatz, the Forefathers, were in the water surrounded with light. They were hidden under green and blue feathers, and were therefore called Gucumatz. By nature they were great sages and great thinkers. In this manner the sky existed and also the Heart of Heaven, which is the name of God and thus He is called.” (From Popul Vuh U. of Oklahoma Press1950)

In our Torah parsha for this week of Tisha B’Av/Va’eschanan we have in Devarim/Chapter4:11”So you approached and stood at the foot of the mountain, and the mountain was burning with fire up to the heart of heaven,” On this verse the special small book of the mekubalim, Sepher haBahir has a commentary:
“Rabbi Berachiah sat and expounded:
What is the Axis(Teli)?
This is the likeness that is before the Blessed Holy One. It is thus written(Song of Songs 5:11), “His locks are curled(Taltalim).”
What is the sphere(gilgul)? This is the womb.(and the wheel/shanah of time and the year)
What is the Heart? It is that regarding which it is written(Devarim 4:11), “unto the heart of heaven.” In it are included the 32 mystical paths of wisdom.”(32=the gematria of lev=heart)(after Kaplan’s translation-page40)
These are at the heart of the mystery of the mekubalim, the three spheres or realms. They hold the key to what has needed to be healed and how we are now in a new olam/world of the Earth as the third Beit haMikdash/Temple.
The Heart is the concealed upper beginning, the reshith and rarely spoken of.
The sphere is the upper mother of understanding, the Earth/haretz in the first verse of Bereshith/Genesis and the Axis, the Teli is the dragon of HaShamayim that unfolds into the depths of space in our manifested physical universe. This “axis” called curled like the helix is as mentioned in previous posts needed to be healed in order to heal the broken vav of the word shalom in parsha Pinchas and allow the upper waters to directly flow into this olam/world.
This weeks Torah parsha includes the second rendition of the Esrei Devarim/The Ten Sayings(commandments) which varies in that HaShem tells us to Shomer/guard the Sabbath while the first rendition in Shemot/Exodus tells us to Zachor/remember the Sabbath. The zachor is a positive form that can be done every day and night while the shomer is a negative commandment that is done on the Sabbath day - all the rules and regulations of how to “protect” the Sabbath day. The negative involves the gilgul and the wheel of time, hence the 365 negative Torah mitzvoth which correspond to the days of the yearly wheel. The positive is the 248 positive mitvot (the total=613) which are said to equal all the bones and organs in the body of Adam Qadmon. The upper mother(Binah) holds the 365 on the left column of the traditional Tree of the depths(womb of time) and the upper father (reshith)holds the 248 on the right column of the Tree. The angel Raziel, the angel of the secret book has a value of 248 in his name and holds the mystery of the Heart of heaven/reshit which he gave to the original Adam Qadmon.
Those mysteries of this angel were a sacred book of crystal and here is where the Mayan story is so revealing for those green feathers in the waters of "heaven"referred to in their creation story refer to the column of green which the zohar tells us is one of the three columns that support the entire creation(red and white are the others).This second rendition of the ten devarim is also different from the first in that it contains the letter teth which the first does not. This letter has the value of nine and the only crystal stone on the breastplate of the high priest that also has the letter teth is the "pitdah" that is said to belong to the tribe of Simeon(Shimon) and relates to the month of Av. So there is this very special green stone that completes a new rebuilt temple earth. The Mayans relate a blue "turquoise" to “Heart of heaven/sky” and a green "turquoise" to heart of earth.
For those who can “Hear/Shema” the root of Shimon's name, to hear;
Celebrate a renewed green Earth temple, within your “decreased joy” at this time of the Teth/nine and then an increased joy for the full moon of Av.
From the Song of Songs Chapter One:
15 "Behold, thou art fair, my love;
behold, thou art fair;
thou hast doves' eyes.
16 Behold, thou art fair, my beloved, yea, pleasant:
also our bed is GREEN/Raeinanah."
Good Shabbos

The 9 of Av/The forty years has ended

The Moon now veils the hechal/palace of the third temple of the mysteries of Shlomo HaMelech.
He to whom Peace belongs. The beginning of the Torah parsha devarim, the beginning of the fifth book of Chumash/fifth now in this fifth month, the month of Hod(temple), takes place after 40 years(chapter1:3) in the wilderness and the peoples are told it is time to possess the sacred land.

2בְּאַרְבָּעִים שָׁנָה, בְּעַשְׁתֵּי-עָשָׂר חֹדֶשׁ בְּאֶחָד לַחֹדֶשׁ; דִּבֶּר מֹשֶׁה, אֶל-בְּנֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל, כְּכֹל אֲשֶׁר צִוָּה יְהוָה אֹתוֹ, אֲלֵהֶ And it came to pass in the fortieth year, in the eleventh month, on the first day of the month, that Moses spoke unto the children of Israel, according unto all that the LORD had given him in commandment unto them;
Again in chapter 2:7 the forty years are mentioned.
For the LORD thy God hath blessed thee in all the work of thy hand; He hath known thy walking through this great wilderness; these forty years the LORD thy God hath been with thee; thou hast lacked nothing.' ז כִּי יְהוָה אֱלֹהֶיךָ בֵּרַכְךָ, בְּכֹל מַעֲשֵׂה יָדֶךָ--יָדַע לֶכְתְּךָ, אֶת-הַמִּדְבָּר הַגָּדֹל הַזֶּה: זֶה אַרְבָּעִים שָׁנָה, יְהוָה אֱלֹהֶיךָ עִמָּךְ--לֹ
חָסַרְתָּ, דָּבָר. 7

We as humanity just celebrated a completion of forty years since humans walked the surface of the Levanah/moon, which the mekubalim know is said to veil the first of the hechalot/heavenly palaces. In fact in the summer of 1971ce on a Sabbath Tisha’b’Av humans walked and breathed on the moon, hinting at a time that the Earth would join with the yesod/foundation in a new way and become a holy temple. The beith HaMikdash Sheleshi/third temple. Yes, the sacred Earth is the holy land and it is time to honor this eretz. This sabbath is the day of Chazon/vision and it always falls in this first week of the month of Av, the mazal of the aryeh/lion. We now have nine petals of the rose of the omakim/depths(5-770=tesha=nine) and the dawn total eclipse of the sun on 1Av is another reminder that the levanah/moon has regained her stature in a new eon. The 1Av is the yahrzheit of Aaron the priest and this eclipse tells us that this lineage and that of all the holy peoples has been reinvigorated. The ability for the very small lunar sphere to create the total eclipse phenomenon is a hint at the soul ocean that the entire created universe floats within. Last weeks post we discussed the importance of the kamea of nine and we can see that the value of 40(as in 40 years)is the value of the eight boxes surrounding the central box of five(chumash). The 40 is always a testing period to attain to a new heh, a new five(heh=five)the only letter of the name of HaShem that is repeated. Half way through the first forty years since we walked the Moon, in the Hebrew year 5750 we entered the 40 years that the Sepher HaZohar calls the Kibbutz Goliot, the ingathering of exiles. In the parsha devarim HaShem also tells the people, that they must turn from their own sacred mountain of har Sinai and go out and make the whole earth a holy land.
6 The LORD our God spoke unto us in Horeb, saying: 'Ye have dwelt long enough in this mountain; ז פְּנוּ וּסְעוּ לָכֶם, וּבֹאוּ הַר הָאֱמֹרִי וְאֶל-כָּל-שְׁכֵנָיו, בָּעֲרָבָה בָהָר וּבַשְּׁפֵלָה וּבַנֶּגֶב, וּבְחוֹף הַיָּם--אֶרֶץ הַכְּנַעֲנִי וְהַלְּבָנוֹן, עַד-הַנָּהָר הַגָּדֹל נְהַר-פְּרָת. 7 turn you, and take your journey, and go to the hill-country of the Amorites and unto all the places nigh thereunto, in the Arabah, in the hill-country, and in the Lowland, and in the South, and by the sea-shore; the land of the Canaanites, and Lebanon, as far as the great river, the river Euphrates. ח רְאֵה נָתַתִּי לִפְנֵיכֶם, אֶת-הָאָרֶץ; בֹּאוּ, וּרְשׁוּ אֶת-הָאָרֶץ, אֲשֶׁר נִשְׁבַּע יְהוָה לַאֲבֹתֵיכֶם לְאַבְרָהָם לְיִצְחָק וּלְיַעֲקֹב לָתֵת לָהֶם, וּלְזַרְעָם אַחֲרֵיהֶם. 8 Behold, I have set the land before you: go in and possess the land which the LORD swore unto your fathers, to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, to give unto them and to their seed after them.'
Notice how the land called Lebanon which is actually a form of the Hebrew word for Moon/Levanah is mentioned and know that this is a prophecy for a time when this moon palace is joined in a new way with the earth globe and the awakening of the shalom shalem, the great peace flows through our world like the mighty stream.
Good Shabbos of the great vision! We are Here!

Tisha B'Av and the 72 days of Chesed/the Shofar

From the 17th of the Hebrew month of Tammuz till the Rosh Hashanah of the next year there are 72 days. These 72 hint at the names of HaShem in the world of yetzirah, of angels and the 72 star gates explained in previous posts; also the value of 72 equals the word Chesed/lovingkindness. The Zohar for this weeks Torah parsha Mattot reads; “Come and behold. It is written: “for I have said, “The world is built by Chesed”(Tehilim) What is Chesed? It is one of the King’s supernal sefirot. For the Holy One, Hakodesh Bruch Hu, named the soul of Yisrael Chesed, on the condition that it would build. Thus, Chesed will never cease…”ZoharIII,259b.(trans after Ashlag).
We are in these 72 days now as we have entered the traditional 3 weeks of mourning fro 17Tammuz to TishaB’Av,and we enter the fifth Hebrew month of Av next week which corresponds to the fifth omak/depth of the lower sephirot called Hod. Hod is the vessel of the holy temple and this month of Av is the month the temples were destroyed and also is the month that the third temple becomes revealed to the olam/world continually in a new way. The word Hod means splendour and has the gematria value of 15. 15 equals the divine name Yah; Yod-Heh- and is the key value of the kamea number grid of Shabbatai, the Sabbath, the grid or famous box of nine that we discuss often in this blog. See Rabbi Ibn Ben Ezra’s book “The Secret of the Torah” for more details on the box of nine. Each day of the week has a box, a planet, a heaven and an element. What is quite significant about the box of nine is that each row and column equals the 15 value of Yah and Hod and the total value of the square, the numbers from one to nine equals 45, the value of the word Adam/human and odem/ruby. The Hebrew letter associated with the month of Av from Sepher Yetzirah is the letter teth which also has the value of nine. This is the ninth of the month of AV which name is the Aleph-Beth ; Av contains the letters-Aleph-Beith. This day can herald in each of us the time when the whole earth is the sacred Malchut sephirah where many peoples are experiencing the beauty and freedom of all the other NINE omakim/depths. As we walk these sacred days of chesed, these 72 days in the awakening of a new divine age/eon we approach a new turn of the wheel/shanah and the Hebrew year 5770 which date contains the word tesha=Tav-Shin-Ayin which is the number 770 but the word tesha is the word for the number NINE!!! We are already experiencing the awakening of the complete Adam, the value of the box of nine which corresponds to the holy Sabbath of the week. As mentioned in a previous post the unifying or touching of Netzach and Hod(called also the Kerubim), the nodes of the moon dragon has allowed the flow of “upper” waters into our world and this causes the sephira of Malchut to join with Yesod in a new way (see picture above from the Sepher Eshel Avraham/1701 which is a rare depiction of this change in sephirot)which changes the number of sephira in a sense to nine. The world is already experiencing this unprecedented global awakening and transformation. This will become more profound during the NINE days from Av1 to Av9 as the moon dragon/north node moves into the mazzal of the gedi/Capricorn. The shofar is made from the horn of a ram(aries) or a goat(Capricorn) and so here is another synchronous event implying the sound of the shofar, the goats or rams horn, each which is an animal corresponding to the mazzal called cardinal. The cardinal signs, Aries,Libra,Capricorn and the Crab/cancer all are called cardinal signs- involved in initiating the ratzon, the will of HaShem, the divine in our world. The three kinds of mazal/signs(cardinal,fixed,mutable) align with the three columns of the traditional Tree of the sephirot. All the practicing mekubalim will be hearing this sound of awakening as the helical turn of the shofar vibrates the omakim/depths of the Tree within and without. The Rosh HaShanah of this new wheel of the year that we can already hear will be celebrated on the Sabbath when it is said Hashem is the one who sounds the Shofar.
Good Shabbos!!

Parsha Pinchas and the Book of Seven Seals/Seven eyes

In the traditional written Torah scroll the letter vav in the first sentence of parsha Pinchas, the letter in the word shalom(shin-lamed-VAV-mem) is a broken vav. Most commentators say that the vav is diminished because the “peace” of the covenant given to Pinchas was gotten through violence so it could not be complete. The mekubalim have the sod/mystery level since the six value of the vav corresponds to the six omakim/depths related to the days of the week; that need to be healed in order to bring a complete peace. The healing of course involves the reestablishing of the original light of the levanah/moon which was diminished with the change involving the Tree of Daat/knowledge and the Etz Chaiim; the tree of life. The mysteries of Solomon deal directly with this completing of the shalom; Solomon’s Hebrew name being the word for peace. He was the fifteenth generation of Israel and the fifteenth day of the lunar month is the full moon. Legend says that the moon was full perpetually during a period of the reign of King Solomon. The Zohar on the parsha Pinchas gives us instruction of how to heal the trees and the moon. The little book inside the main body of the Zohar, “the Faithful Sheperd” contains amazing commentary on how to heal the Tree in earth.” Netzach and Hod are the two halves of a body, like two twins/teomim, which is why they are called heavens/shechakim. The two of them together are vav vav of veshet, from the aspect of the left, and they are the two molar teeth from the aspect of the right.” Zohar III-the faithful shepherd of Parsha Pinchas/trans. After Ashlag. If we continue in our understanding of the healing of the “six” “lower” depths then we can see how these two teomim/twins need to be joined so as to allow the flow of the upper waters into our world which has reestablished the holy temple in Earth. This corresponds to the reuniting of the “head” and “tail” of the lunar being from the ancient Vedic legend in last weeks post. The various wisdom traditions around the earth have been given different keys to the full understanding of these mysteries. The Hebrews had the crystal book that the gnostic Christians openly wrote about in their book of revelation, calling it the book sealed with seven seals. This sepher/sapphire is called the stone with seven eyes(ayin=founts)by the prophet Zechariah. This book in the Hebrew wisdom was given to the original Adam, male and female by the angel of secrets. It is said in legend to be made of sapphire and encased in gold. In the pseudipigraphical literature we see it again; “Above the Seraphim is a prince, more exalted than all princes, more wonderful than all ministers, Radweiriel YHWH is his name and he is in charge of the archives. He takes out the scroll box in which the book of records is kept and brings it into the presence of the Holy One” chapter 27;1 & 2 of the Book of Enoch from Old Testament Psuedopigraphica by Doubleday. The Hebrew lineage keeps the book; and the legend of the Adam Baal Shem gives us more details about this line of initiation as the way of a true scribe. The gnostics made the book famous in their writings as sealed with seven seals, and the sufi mystics of Islam were given the secrets of how to open the seals of the sacred book. For this book has been guarded by the gates of time herself(Binah/upper mother) and only those given the true keys have the daat to open this Sepher/sapphire. The gates of time have been explained in previous posts since they are seen as the “Teomim” twin stars that move through the 72 star gates over the turn of the earth related to the movement of vast periods of time and civilizations. The book of sapphire has been opened in our times and the knowledge of this is now being revealed as we have entered the 207th period of the blessing of the sun which brings us to the special angel chief mentioned in bahir as uriel whose name contains the word ohr-aleph-vav-resh which means light whose value is 207 in gematria. The full value of this chiefs name, auriel, is 248 which also equals the value of the angel chief in charge of the sacred crystal book - raziel=248. Those mekubalim will know that the the 248 are the “positive” number of mitzvoth of the 613 total which number equals the word ohrot=“lights’=613, the plural of ohr which equals 207. And so the 248 are the physicality of body, the number of bones and organs in the original body of Adam Qadmon. Our times are times of the opening of this special Sepher/sapphire. The true peace of the word Shalom in the first lines of this weeks parsha Pinchas is now ours. From Sepher HaZohar on Pinchas’ “The lord buildeth Jerusalem”(Psalms)-he and no other. It is for this building that we are waiting, not a human structure which cannot endure. The Holy One , Baruch haShem, will send down to us the first house and the second house together, the first in concealment and the second openly. The second will be revealed to show all the world the handiwork of the Holy One, Baruch HaSem, in perfect joy and gladness. The first which will be concealed, will ascend high over that which is revealed, and all the world will see the clouds of glory surrounding the one which is revealed and enveloping the first one which ascends to the height of the glorious heavens. It is for that building that we are waiting. Even the future city of Jerusalem will not be the work of human hands, all the more so the Temple, HaShems habitation.” Zohar III221a(trans Sperling). This Hebrew month by tradition is the time on the 17th of Tammuz that the original crystalline stone from har Sinai were shattered. The pieces were by tradition kept and we pray that this holy chodesh/month of Tammuz and Av, the months of Netzach and Hod; Yerushalim(Netzach=eternity) and the Temple(Hod=kavod) the people sense this peace that is healed.

the dragon in the Kid-capricorn/ayin Gedi

We are now in the Hebrew month of Tammuz, the fourth month which relates to the fourth of the depths/sephirot of the week; Netzach=eternity. The original crystalline tablets from Har Sinai give us the direct interface with the olam haBeriah; the world of throne. As a longtime theme of this blog the world of throne is now fully interfaced with our world of assiah/action. This month restores the first born birthright of the shevat Reuben who is the tribe corresponding to Tammuz. His stone is the odem/ruby which means we have left the exile of Edom/Rome, the word that has the same letters of Odem and Adam. The completed original Adam has been the goal of the mekubalim/kabbalists for the millenniums. This is the making of the true repair/healing of the world. This Tikkun Olam has not only been the work of social activists for centuries but also of the global wisdom traditions-completing the first Adam, male and female in our physical world of assiah/action. The mitzvot/commandments of this weeks Torah parsha(the red heifer) involves the rectification of death which involves the mysteries of the Tree of daat/knowledge. The nachash is an integral part of this famous story and the letters of the nachash/snake(nun-cheth-shin) are the same letters of the choshen/breastplate(cheth-shin-nun) of Aaron. The mysteries of the technology of the Hebrew priesthood, including the fragments of the original tablets of stone crystal from har Sinai; involves the healing or rebalancing of the change that the tree of Daath involves. This is all very connected to an ancient Sanskrit Vedic story that brings it all up to this very moment in Tammuz/Av in astrological time. The Vedic story involves the original divine powers using the great serpent to churn the cosmic ocean and bring up the nectar of immortality. The nectar comes up but a "demon being" swallows some and the divine power of Vishnu(sacred life) chops him in half. The two halves become the beings in Vedic astrology called Rahu and ketu; the north and south nodes of the moon sometimes called the dragons nodes. See how the serpent energy is related to the dragon power and the diminishing of the light of the moon which involves the nodal axis and the moons movements in relation to Earth and Sun. The aggada/legends of Talmud tell us about how the light of the moon was originally dimished from being as bright as the sun/shemesh. The complex Hebrew 19 year prayer calendar is established to fully work with nodal changes of the moon and the eclipse cycles effected by this. For the mekubalim we needed to bring into manifestation the complete Adam Qadmon and the doing of this is directly related to rejoining the nodal points of the dragon of the moon, called in the Vedic literature the Rahu and ketu. Actually the means of doing this is also explained through use of story in the Vedas. For the mekubalim it is very involved with the left side of the Tree of the kabbalists and opening the shaar haNun, the fiftieth gate of the upper mother(Binah). This allows the thirteen streams of pure balsam(bedilcha=crystal) to flow directly into our olam/world. Shlomo haMelech/Solomon said he did not understand the laws of the red heifer and part of this was due to the fact that the sacred vessels of his temple would need to travel around the globe of Earth and find their way to the other side in the land of America before the completing of the Adam Qadmon could be made manifest. the Jewish author Stefan Zweig in his "Buried Candelabram" explains this part of the work. The sign for this completion happening would be the birth of a pure white bison heifer in America(in 5753/1993) which marks the return of the upper sky mother called whope, the star maiden or white bison calf woman for Native Americans. In the land of ancient judea the first birth of a pure red heifer calf since temple times occurred in 5757/1997. This coincides with the opening of the 50th gate of Binah(upper mother) and of course the flag of America has 50 stars-gates! And the thirteen stripes - of pure balsam-from Zohar in the greater and lesser holy assemblies. And the soul spark of the original Adam who in America came as the Cheyenne prophet Sweet Medicine hid the prophecy of time in his vision of the winged thunder chiefs/Seraphim - the 44 chiefs surrounding him deep in the heart of Bear Butte thousands of years ago. So now we have the 44th American president whose name is Hebrew for lightning bolt and a global push towards freedom and diplomacy.
We will now get back to why the month of tammuz/Av is connected to netzach/eternity and Hod/the holy temple. For during the three weeks of traditional mourning this summer from 17Tammuz to 9Av we have the north node of the grandmother moon/levanah moving into the sign of the gedi/kid(capricorn) and completing a grand 19 year cycle since the “repair” of the nodes of the moon took place. This means the direct flow of the cardinal power of will of the cardinal signs of capricorn/cancer- the primal power of water/Earth is available here. This heals the separation between the Tree of Daat/knowledge and the Etz chaiim/the Tree of Life in our physical world. This Sabbath we sing a double parsha and the second one is Balak where Balaam’s vision of the Kochav, the special star of Yaakov(the star of Whope the upper sky maiden) is seen that has played a critical role in healing the Earth and bringing humanity into the great Shalom Shalem and the purification of our times!
15And he took up his parable, and said: The saying of Balaam the son of Beor, and the saying of the man whose eye is opened; טז נְאֻם, שֹׁמֵעַ אִמְרֵי-אֵל, וְיֹדֵעַ, דַּעַת עֶלְיוֹן; מַחֲזֵה שַׁדַּי יֶחֱזֶה, נֹפֵל וּגְלוּי עֵינָיִם. 16 The saying of him who heareth the words of God, and knoweth the knowledge of the Most High, who seeth the vision of the Almighty, fallen down, yet with opened eyes: יז אֶרְאֶנּוּ וְלֹא עַתָּה, אֲשׁוּרֶנּוּ וְלֹא קָרוֹב; דָּרַךְ כּוֹכָב מִיַּעֲקֹב, וְקָם שֵׁבֶט מִיִּשְׂרָאֵל, וּמָחַץ פַּאֲתֵי מוֹאָב, וְקַרְקַר כָּל-בְּנֵי-שֵׁת. 17 I see him, but not now; I behold him, but not nigh; there shall step forth a star out of Jacob, and a scepter shall rise out of Israel, and shall smite through the corners of Moab, and break down all the sons of Seth. יח וְהָיָה אֱדוֹם יְרֵשָׁה, וְהָיָה יְרֵשָׁה שֵׂעִיר--אֹיְבָיו; וְיִשְׂרָאֵל, עֹשֶׂה חָיִל. 18 And Edom shall be a possession, Seir also, even his enemies, shall be a possession; while Israel doeth valiantly.
