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".

Kabbalah, The twenty count and the Buddhas

The eight spoked wheel of the twenty count as pictured here with the five levels of human soul explains how all the world’s prayer forms/religious traditions are connected in the awakening of the holy tree which this picture wheel is the trunk and roots. In Buddhist tradition there are always existent one thousand Buddhas who are the awareness of the wheel which for the mekubalim is like the Eleph ceseph, the river worth a thousand pieces of silver, the river of life. Buddhist traditon tells us that the last Buddha, Sakyamuni was the fourth in the series of one thousand. Using our wheel we can see that the first four Buddhas would have had the four soul roots as delineated by the four basic directions and the Fifth Buddha would have connected to the center/yechidah level. In the Hebrew tradition the first four “Buddhas” could correspond with Noach/nephesh/- Abraham/Ruach-Sarah/Chayah-Israel/neshamah. In the Zohar these four soul root individuals are given as the feet of the merkabah chariot, the three patriarchs, with David replacing the feminine malchut/Chayah and the fifth rider on the chariot is the king whose names is Peace=Solomon. These four “soul roots’ at the four directions would in the Native american wisdom be the four Clan chiefs of the elements themselves-Earth-Fire-Air-Water , and in the Hebrew tradition are called by the names of specific angels.
I gave these wheels to someone recently and they asked me well what do the numbers represent? This is an involved initiatic Cheyenne elder wisdom tradition and I am not an expert in explaining this but because of the correspondence with kabbalah I can explain it in that light. The numbers are counted in four swings around the wheel that you can count out for yourself. The center place of divine selfhood are four levels of initiation(5-10-15-20) achieved by a mastery of the relationship at each level with the four directional quadrants. The I and THOU of divine relationship in each of four “worlds” of relationship so to speak.
The five continuums of Kabbalah are also depicted in the wheel and the sephirot/omakim=depths at each end of a spoke/continuum. Four cross spokes(eight points) include the continuum of time, reshith and acharit(beginning and ending) and the other three spokes are the three continuum of space - up/down, left/right and front/back. There is a spoke or continuum going vertically through the center of the wheel=crown/kingdom - the vertical nature of the holy Tree of Life. It is all here in this beautiful wheel.
Thanks again to H.Storm and his book “Lightning Bolt” for the wheel.

Yom HaShleishi/Tuesday TishaB'Av and the NINE

The nine degrees of “holy Creatures”, Chayoth HaKodesh and the nine days of Av and the year of Tesha=770(our year 5770)=Nine all reveals great wisdom.. These nine creatures are explained in Rabbi Jacob ben Jacob haKohen’s book translated in“The early Kabbalah” published by the Paulist Press on pages 159 to 162.
"Similarly I will enlighten you as to how you can discover that the letter tet informs us about the holy creatures. Know that the tet equals nine and that there are nine degrees of holy creatures."
The Kamea box of Shabbatai(pictured above), called the box of nine numbers also explains the awakening of the meaning of the letter Teth, the ninth Hebrew letter in our world. The world of understanding and the upper “mother”/Binah(vertice of the continuum of time)has joined with the world of “kingdom”(vertice where “space” meets “soul”, giving us only Nine vertices of the five continuums, the vertice of Ra/”evil” or uncertainty of potential of soul; has become one with, lifted up to “Tov” the goodness of the “crown”. The entire Earth is an eretz kedusha.
The mekubalim/kabbalists these days compare the ancient idea of Tzimtzum, the contraction of the divine light that allowed “room” for the physical creation to manifest, as a foreshadowing of the theory of the “Big Bang”. In the very literal, Peshat understanding of this theory of cosmogony, all the material substance/energy of the universe was contracted to a dense place and then it exploded in a moment that brought the physical world into manifestation. Following this incredible line of thinking there had to be a hierarchical strata to the “original” substance with some of it being at the center or near the center of the original dense mass. Remember that in the 4-continuum worldview there is no center to our universe, only in the worldview of the ancient wise ones, the five continuum view,(from the sepher Yetzira) is there a "center" to all that is. At the Big Bang time and space met so to speak at this "center". This is why some special material and the mishkan of Yisrael has been a key to bringing the “center” of the 5-contnuum world into our physical world since some of this “central” material has been found and “hallowed” throughout the thousands of years of the wisdom tradition. This “material” made up the pillow of Yakov/Jacob when he had the dream of the angelic ladder and the future of Yisrael, this was the stuff that Moshe Rabbainu carried on Har Sinai. This was also related to the material of the Be’ar/Well of our holy matriarch Miriam. The material of the stone of Miriam’s well did not totally disappear with her death, only it’s capacity to bring fresh “water”/chockmah into the world. This is because a being like Miriam who had the Chayah level soul root had to be with the “material” for the well to function. This is the "missing" piece of stone tablet that the Hopi Indians have been expecting a elder white brother to carry with him from the east. And now it reemerges in an olam where the “center” is being revealed again for a global change towards the Tov, the goodness of this gift of livingness in the material world. Next Tuesday, Yom HaShleish/third day, is the day kept for the revealing of the Nine(nine of Av=tesh B’Av) and what the Kamea/box of Nine really is about. The understanding of this box that is a wheel, that unifies and explains wisdom lineages as diverse as ancient China, India, Tibet, Arabia, European and Hebrew all in nine numbers in this year 5770 whose name means tesha=Nine.(much more about the kamea of Nine in future posts) The center is being found, the gate of the holy temple that was sunken into the ground according to the sepher HaZohar and has been raised up and sanctified. The tenth has become the ninth because we have a center to our world physically in the third Temple. The “angel chief” of the third day, yom haShleishi is one of the Seven day chiefs who stand before the ceso/throne in the world of beriah and this “chief” was needed to be brought into this world physically. To have achieved this all the powerful angels of Desire/Geburah needed to be coaxed into the wisdom lineages and this includes the seraph guardian of Rome. To do this we needed a prayer form, a religion, that was built on Rome so to speak. And so the last two thousand years of a solar calendar that is now the calendar of the secular world. It is the joining of the two planetary “day chiefs” in the sky Shabbatai/saturn and Meadim/Mars that we see in the west after dark and these are part of a powerful T-square planetary formation that has the entire olam/world in a momentum of deep awakening. The American Indian medicine wheel(picture above) has eight directions on the circle around the center which reveals the Yechidah, the fifth level of soul that is connected to the center and the Five in the central box of the kamea of Shabbatai(pictured above). The nine degress of the kamea of Shabbatai have been lowered into the physical earth, binah/understanding (4)joining with malchuth/kingdom(2). This reveals the Beith HaMikdash HaShleisi, the third sacred temple. Zachor Shabbat Chazon!

welcoming the Sabbath/Total Eclipse Sun Today!

I am pleased that there is some buzz on the internet about the beginning of the time for the afternoon prayer to welcome the Sabbath bride into our world based on the thousand years equals a day scenario so we are in the sixth "day"/Friday in the sixth millennium - 5000-6000 year/day of the Hebrew calendar. This means that Rosh Chodesh Av, beginning this erev/evening is equal to the 18.5 hour of Friday in the bigger scheme and time to welcome the sacred in an active formal way for traditional Jews. It is an ongoing theme of this blog that the "global sabbath" actually began exactly nineteen years ago today on the Yahrzheit of Rashi/Tammuz 29 5751/July 11, 1991. This date corresponded with a total solar eclipse which can also be found recorded in the ancient Dresden codex as significant in the aboriginal American wisdom tradition. The particular zodiacal degree of this eclipse - 19.5 degrees of the crab/Sartan is in the five degree space out of seventy two spaces(quinaries) that directly corresponds with the holy name - Yod-Yod-Yod of the shemhamphorash. this name of the seventy two is associated with the Hebrew priesthood, the Birchas Cohanim/priestly blessing beginning with the three yods. Today likewise sees a total eclipse of the sun/Tammuz 29 at this same degree. every nineteen years the gregorian and hebrew dates coincide, the Hebrew calendar being geared to a nineteen year metonic eclipse cycle. We are not waiting for the "Sabbath" so to speak, for the joy, for the peace, when we pray the Mincha prayer. we are acknowledging the presence of the sacredness in our cycle of time and space, here and now! Indeed as we mention often in this blog, the Yom Rishon/Sunday, today has been transformed with our Teffilot/prayers and mitzvot/deeds and it has become Yom Echad as recorded in the first paragraph of the sefer torah/Genesis.Baruch haShem!

Beit haMikdash Shleishi/ Yom haShleishi visible in the west

The star that rules the third day/ Yom haShleishi is visible in the west after dark over the next few weeks and is joining with the star that rules the Sabbath; all according to the sepher yetzirah. Meadim/Mars whose kamea/number grid gives us the 65/=Adonai(#value of the rows) rules yom haShleishi/third day is joining with shabbatai/saturn whose kamea/number grid gives us the 15=yah(#value of the rows). all this is visible as they move into conjunction in the west after dark along with Nogah/venus and the star regulus, called the heart of the Aryeh/Lion. the third holy house/temple is protected by the gate keepers of the third yom/day,the winged thunders. The navi/prophet isaiah saw this and wrote about the seraphim and the third temple on Earth.
