open your heart, prompt peace, and hasten healing. "We now know the love signal, 528 Hertz, is among the six core creative frequencies of the universe because math doesn't lie, the geometry of physical reality universally reflects this music; play this video with open glass containers of water near the speakers. blue containers if possible and not plastic.

Birth / Death / Rebirth

Apparently, Vernal Equinox means different things to different peoples. The Iranian start of the New Year (Nowruz, No-Ruz, No-Rooz or No Ruz) occurs during the time of the March equinox, and ALSO In Tunisia, March 20 is Independence Day. Following World War II, Tunisia experienced a surge of nationalism and in 1956 France signed a treaty to recognize the country’s full independence. AND its EARTH DAY (april 22 some traditons) its Purim in Judaism and for some Rastas, and its Higan-e in Japan among Buddhists. this celebration goes for a week - Shunbun-no-hi. the central day of the week is Higan and the Red spider lily that blooms prolifically along roadsides and gardens all over Japan is Higanbaba - Equinox flower.



* You know why a Spider Lily is called the flower of separation? It’s because the leaves and the flowers can never meet. The flowers can only blossom when the leaves are all withered away. They miss one another to grow the sprout and bloom the flowers, but in the end they leave their yearning for each other and never unite. Isn’t it beautiful? Even in death, they seem to miss each other like lovers. — Nakbin, The Bride of the Water God

Oddly enough, this first day of Spring is the day to honor the ancestors in Japanese Buddhism. the ones who crossed the river of life before us. so this week is especially an auspicious one in light of the tragedies of 18,000 lives lost in the triple disaster this month quaking the earth, swelling a tsunami at sea and polluting the atmosphere w nuclear fallout. there certainly has been death at the same time as spring sets forth the new shoots.

as if the 11th of March wasnt climactic enough, on the 19th of March, the day before Vernal Equinox this year we were treated to the Supermoon, something that occurs only twice in a 19 yr moon node and is when the moon is at its closest perigee to the equator so it seems HUGE. in spite of the doomsayers, this was not a disaster but more like a giant mirror to refect on what has happened in the past weeks and even the past year.




dont put away your kryptonite yet....
Then, day after the Spring Equinox this year is Mother's Day (first day of spring) in Bahrain, Egypt, Iraq, Jordan, Kuwait, Lebanon, Libya, Oman, Palestinian Territories, Saudi Arabia, Sudan, Syria, United Arab Emirates, Yemen. have i got everyone covered here yet? seems all bases are covered here at least as BIRTH / DEATH / REBIRTH.

Mother is Queen of this whole paradigm. we all come from a mother, but all earth children have a common Mother as well. in some communities this day is also celebrated as Earth Day (others 3rd week in April or first week of September)

we cannot survive long without the Earth to nourish us. just think for a moment about where food comes from. taking care of the soil, water and atmosphere is foundational to having clean healthy food. the ash and smoke procured from performing Vedic yajnyas has been proven effective in vegetable gardening and water purification. the vibrations from the mantra-infused smoke averts the negative influx of radiation as a barrier.

http://www.agnihotrin.blogspot.com i will be updating the information related to radiation today on this blog as its now alot more relevant than when i first studied and began my practices.

some common-sense and simple ways to deal with radioactivity and survive it right now according to Susan Weed:

i will complete this practical guide to how to survive with one long video on just how easy it is to heal ourselves and the planet by way of the WATER matrix.

Art is Love - in the Time of Cholera

Matenwa - Atis Fanm, (Kreyol for Women Artists)

Matènwa is a small, rural Haitian village in the mountains of Lagonav, an island in Haiti's great, blue bay.



Life on Lagonav is spare and hard. Poverty forces deforestation that ruins the balance of nature, eroding away the topsoil - which in turn washes down to the sea killing off edible fish. The village of Matènwa has survived for generations by farming small family plots and slowly turning trees into charcoal for sale.

Women and children travel miles to collect precious water from a scattering of mountain springs. It becomes more and more difficult to survive by doing things the old ways in a region largely abandoned by the Haitian government. There is a constant struggle to afford rice, fuel and medicine. their struggle took a hard hit by the earthquake as well.

Women, who do much of the labor and child-raising, battle to keep their families fed, often depending on other family members, or men who have less work as traditional farming methods fail.

They knew they would never be in line for the funding that came flooding into the cities, and believe their art could help them make their homes livable again.

Several years ago, the directors of the local Matenwa Community Learning Center
http://matenwaclc.org/
set out to find a way to tap the great creativity of the women of Matènwa, focusing on something the women could enjoy making to sell. The goal was to encourage self-respect and independence using new methods of self-sufficiency - without rocking a fragile balance by using up limited natural resources like firewood and water.

When they started this groundbreaking project, the school director, an artist, Ellen LeBow, who had resigned from the Cambridge School System to start the Matenwa Community Learning Center of LaGonave, primarily to do literacy work but the building functions as so much more of a resource than this. a multi-purpose building for an elementary school, adult literacy and education classes, a Haitian Creole and French library, a first aid clinic, community meetings, children's theatre, agricultural workshop, etc. She and co-director, Chris Low and and the women artists wanted to use local materials for their artistic creations. But the scarcity on La Gonave meant that anything that was remotely salvageable was already being used for survival.

The fact that the island can be reached only by rickety sailboats or ferries and a long ride up a rocky road also meant that they had to find materials easily transportable both to and from the tiny village. This led to LeBow and Low’s brainstorm of bringing silk from the United States for the women to use as canvases.



with folkloric images drawn from their own culture and history, the Atis Fanm paint on silk scarves stories from their lives, from the bible, from the Vodou religion, and from memories of flora and fauna that are fast disappearing from their world.

the head scarf (called "mouchwa" in Kreyol) is a traditional accessory women in Matènwa wear and appreciate.

The women were often too consumed by the rigorous struggles of daily life even to rest, much less spend time on aesthetic endeavors for their own enjoyment. The project also gave the women a chance to learn a creative skill with potential to bring in money from outside of their own economic injustice, a cathartic outlet and boost to moral, which they could then teach to others.

“It is low-tech,” says LeBow, “an excellent vehicle for artistic expression, not breakable or heavy to ship. And scarves are a traditional accessory women in Matènwa wear and understand.”

Le Bow has stated “I was happy when this project reduced hunger in the lives of these women, but I was even more moved watching their self-confidence grow as capable women. I’ll never forget the day a group of visitors came to the art center and bought several scarves. Once the group left, the women re-enacted the scene, exclaiming, ‘Did you see how they ran to our scarves!’ and ‘Before I was nothing. Now I can say that I am an artist!’”

The success of the silk painters spawned new interest in other forms of artistic expression among their peers. A group of women now create traditional Haitian ceremonial flags with thousands of sequins and beads called “Drapo” in Kreyol language. There is a group of young men and women hand- cutting sterling silver jewelry, another group are designing bold, original linoleum prints on paper and cloth, and their involvement with the Zanmitè Sant Atizana has expanded their traditional craft of embroidered paintings. Silver jewelry, wood cut prints, traditionally influenced embroidery paintings. The Drapo comes from the French "Drapeau" or "Flag." They are, with the Haitian drum, the closest thing to an indigenous art form in Haiti. Like the drum, the Drapo originated in West Africa and was brought over by those who were enslaved and incorporated into Haiti’s own changing Vodou religion. These ceremonial flags are worn during dances by practitioners to call down the power of individual deities whose symbols are emblazoned on the flags. Each glittering work of art is stitched sequin by sequin and bead by bead, taking two women up to a month to complete. Each is signed by the artists and no two are alike.



As their economic status grew due to the generous patrons of their art in America and Europe, The Atis Fanm have earned a respected voice in their community. They are 48 women strong. They have gained confidence in themselves and in their culture.

Through earthquake and aftershocks, the artists of Matènwa kept working.

Through hurricane floods and winds, disease and political turmoil,
the artists of Matènwa keep working.

Their work, they say, is their companionship, satisfaction, and meditation.

And they keep working thanks to generosity of people who purchase their art, the outside interest and faith in their progress.

let there be world PEACE : Al-Salam السلام

full on prayer and the light of love beam to Egypt thru this time of uprising.

♥ send LOVE and light - prayer for PEACE and any action we can do from distance to heal this energy - HOTEP! may there be PEACE ! Al-Salam السلام world peace ! In šāʾ Allāh (إن شاء الله) as God wills
when will there be peace?- let it be now!



twitter and other networks for the people have been shut down in Egypt by the dictatorship. Egyptians worldwide outside Egypt and international activists (people like you) are on a campaign to support Egyptians uprizing by a series of videos. Here is the first one. Please watch, forward and share.



this morning i got this via the group We are all Khaled Said: Urgent situation now: In Tahreer square, there are more than 200 thousand people now including Judges, AlAzhar scholars, Opposition leaders (from all parties) from protesters are made up of women, children, men, young and old, Muslims, Christians & Athiests. Jetfighter planes are flying low in the square with helicopters as well.

http://english.aljazeera.net/watch_now/ live stream @ Aljazeera

we will not be moved. this young man moved my heart deeply.



Jupiter entered Aries last week, and approaches a square to Pluto. Uranus soon follows (March)- we are entering an era of unrest.

Islam has no other word for the ONE God, Egypt may remember Isis for one way of seeing the Mother of all-powerful love. unlike other Egyptian Goddesses, she spent time in and among her people grinding corn for bread, spinning flax just like any Maa. Hindus like to get more specific about the attributes.

there is a devi i am invocing especially at this time - Shri Maha Pratyangira Devi looks like a lion but is all love. let divine will of free people be done with peace love not violence.

Sri Maha Pratyangira Devi is a powerful manifestation of Parvati who destroyed the arrogance of Sarabeswara - a ugra avatar of Lord Shiva. She is also known as Narashimhika - the ferocious half human and half lion of courage. she is depicted as a blue/black Kali-like lion faced goddess !



Goddess Pratyangira Devi is the divine power who helps in removal of negative energy and marks an end to the negative forces that invade your life. It is believed that when the ugra avatar of Shiva Himself as Sarabeswara was destroyed, She emerged out of the 3rd eye of Lord Shiva - to pacify Lord Narasimha, the ferocious incarnation of Lord Vishnu named Narasimha, so that the universe would not be destroyed by His anger.

"Aum hreem ksham bhaksha jvaala jihvayai Pratyangirayai ksham hreemhum phatt!

I have gathered a few of the Gayatris devoted to her right here:

OM APARAJEETHAYAI VITHMAHE PRATYANGIRAYAI DHIMAHE TANO UGRA PRACCHODAYAATH...

&

OM PRATAYANGIRAYAI VITHMAHY SATHRUNIS THINIYEH DHIMAHE
TANNO DEVI PRACCHODAYAATH...

&

OM Sarabheshvara Saantha Kaarini Vidmahe
Ugra Narasimha Shakthi Svaroopini Dheemahi
Tanno Sri Prathyangira Devi Pracchodayaath

ITI SHRI GAYATRI MANTRA SHRI PRATHYAGIRA DEVI SVAHA !

Om sreem greem gleem sa'um gla'um

Prathyangire maha maaye

Thevy thevy mama vaanjitham kuru kuru

Maam raksha raksha Prathyangire swaha ||

In šāʾ Allāh (إن شاء الله) as God wills
when will there be peace?- let it be now!

MORE LOVE FOR AIYTI

“Espoir Pou Aiyti.” (Hope for Haiti)

as disasters of every description like dominoes falling around the globe - January 12 marks the first anniversary of the earthquake that devistated Haiti in 2010.




Mami Wata -please help us to clean our water, the mother of the water is sick. send Love and Help.
in Haiti, young girls and old women walk many kilometers in rocky mountains to bring water to the home, water is about generosity, when we share it, it is love. Water is community. Cholera is a water-borne disease killing thousands in Haiti at this moment. tent cities without potable water are unsanitary in many ways - though cholera is easy to treat when caught early, the supplies to treat it are too slow to arrive. Svadishana Chakra is also water in its element. instead of sweetness and love which obviously helps any horrid situation, rapes resulting in unwanted pregnancy are out of control as well. when water is not well, people are not well. people are primarily made of water. water is easy to heal in this day and age, why is this not being addressed since day one (a year ago) in a situation such as Aiyti is enduring? this is needless suffering at the hands of those charged with the responsibility to help.



a Bahai prayer in Kreyole for healing

Priyè lagerizon
on Ou se gerizon mwen, O Bon Dye, lè mwen sonje Ou, mwen jwenn remèd mwen. Vwazinaj Ou se sèl espwa mwewn, lamou mwen pou Ou se konpayon mwen. Mizerikòd Ou se gerizon mwen ak soutyen mwen nan lemonn sa a ak lòt monn nan tou. An verite, Ou se Bon Dye ki gen tout bonte a, ki konnen tout bagay, ki gen tout sajès la. ³

a Healing Prayer
Thy name is my healing, O my God, and remembrance of Thee is my remedy. Nearness to Thee is my hope, and love for Thee is my companion. Thy mercy to me is my healing and my succor in both this world and the world to come. Thou, verily, art the All-Bountiful, the All-Knowing, the All-Wise.

Bahá'u'lláh


Apah Shantih - peace to the waters.



ive borrowed this image of Mami Wata from http://museum.stanford.edu/news_room/mami_wata.html credited as Zoumana Sane, Mami Wata, 1987. Pigment, glass. Collection of Herbert M. and Shelley Cole. Photo by Don Cole



i place her next to Narmada Mata - my own river goddess in India who clears all karmas and restores and saves just at the sight of her. she rides a crocodile, she is fears nothing and is like Mami Wata, all love.

the 15 of Jan is Jan 15th is Makar Sankranti in the Vedic calendar. what does this have to do with a Kreyole culture? we are all family, distant or close. This festival was designated to promote harmony and love in the family, to make people realize the unity of the Creator and
creation, to teach people their obligation to themselves to realize the inherent Divinity. these 2 anniversaries fall together for me in my heart and i open and offer this entry of Love to all.

According to Vedic Calendar this day (15 jan) marks the entry of the sun into the sign
of Capricorn in its northward journey. its a portal to peace and contentment for the global family. More LOVE is so needed- lets not forget 300,000 plus souls lost in 32 seconds and the millions of survivors and new babies born in the wake of it all. they are us. we are them. there is no us and them. we are ONE.



there is a French community online echoing a suggestion made by a youth from Haiti, the Taizé Community invites everyone who is able to pray for the people of Haiti, either singly or in a group, the 12th of each month for 12 months following the earthquake of January 12, 2010. http://www.taize.fr/en_article10941.html

OM DYAUH SHANTIR, ANTARIKSAM SHANTIH, PRTIVI SHANTIR, APAH SHANTIH, OSYADAYAH SHANTIH, VANASPATAYA SHANIR, VISVA-DEVA SHANTIR, BRAHMA SHANTIH, SARVAGAM SHANTIH, SHANTIR EVA SHANTIH, SA MA SHANTIR EDHI, OM SHANTIH SHANTIH SHANTIH OM
may there be peace and no pollution to all the heavenly bodies, peace in the space inbetween as well, may there Mother Earth be at peace with no pollution and the Waters all be clean and peaceful, may the herbs and medicinal plants be free from pollutants and in their natural state, free, may the forests be at peace and without pollution, may all the elementals be at peace and free from pollution! may the souls of the people be peaceful and free, may everything and everyone everywhere be happy and free and live in a peaceful clean environment without military or enforced intervention, a natural state of peace and freedom, OM shantih may there be peace mentally, physically and spiritually ...

OM OM OM there is hope for Haiti, Espoir Pou Aiyti, love and more love, pour it like a drink of fresh water.
