Posts Tagged ‘Birkat Hachamah’

 jan222008

The sun has just about set, bringing another day to a close.   This morning’s sun of  April 8th featured Birkat Hachamah, the Jewish ritual of “Blessing the Sun” which occurs every 28 years.  According to Talmudic tradition, the Sun was created on the fourth day, which was a Wednesday.  In Roman times the new year began on the day of the vernal equinox, which fell on March 25 some 2400 years ago. http://www.usno.navy.mil/USNO/tours-events/sky-this 

According to rabbinic tradition, on this day the sun is in the exact position it occupied at the time of Creation. And that, as with almost everything else in Judaism, is cause for a blessing.  Tonight is also Passover in this year 5769 (2008-2009).

It is a simple prayer- The text of the blessing itself is as follows:

“ברוך אתה ה’ אלהינו מלך העולם עושה מעשה בראשית”
Blessed are You, LORD, our God, King of the Universe who makes the works of Creation.

Most religions mark the time in a sacred way.  40 days of lent, the 40 day flood, etc. Counting the solar years in increments of 28 is just one more way of marking a new beginning- a rebirth.

“At a time of growing concern over global warming, birkat hachama has found new resonance. In many synagogues, the special blessing — only one sentence long — will be accompanied by recitations of the ways in which the congregation is harnessing solar power and generally, assuming environmentally friendly policies.”  http://online.wsj.com/article/SB123872560930985495.html

I believe in the power of the sun for growth, warmth and spirituality, but pausing for “the birth of the sun,” gives me  little evidence of consequence to fossil fuel consumption or global warming.  In fact, it pisses me off that I will soon be required to purchase mercury laden, compact fluorescent light bulbs- CF’L’s, energy saving, cancer causing light bulbs.

“The blessing is an affirmation of God, not as creator, but as the power that keeps the universe in existence,” said Rabbi J. David Bleich, an expert on the holiday who wrote a book on the subject. “God didn’t just create the universe, then go on an eternal sabbatical. He’s like a generator of electricity: If it doesn’t keep on working, the lights go out.” http://www.jpost.com/servlet/Satellite?pagename=JPost/JPArticle/ShowFull&cid=1238562942983

With due respect, time for lights out and bed.  You could dream of, “the potential effects of intense solar Coronal Mass Ejections (CMEs) on the earth and an ever-growing awareness of the possibility of extreme geomagnetic storms seem to rekindle interest in the so-called ‘Carrington Event’ of 1859, when “skies all over planet Earth erupted in red, green, and purple auroras”, causing severe damage to the telegraph networks of the time. Between then and 1958, altogether 6 well-documented auroras were strong enough to be visible within 30º or indeed 20º of the equator. http://xenophilius.wordpress.com/2009/04/08/the-coming-of-the-sky-dancers/.

UPDATED post on the Haiti Earthquake and experiments that HAARP and EISCAT were running on Jan. 12, 2010 the day of the earthquake! VISIT NOW!  https://ahrcanum.wordpress.com/2010/01/14/haiti-earthquake-conspiracy-haarp-eiscat/

From earthquakes to sonic booms, it’s been a busy couple of days.  The latest earthquakes, including Italy’s can be found at http://earthquake.usgs.gov/eqcenter/recenteqsww/.

Are these random, naturally occuring events or controlled events? 

Earthquakes can be heralded by changes in the ionosphere – the earth’s upper atmosphere on the edge of space. Just before the earthquake struck Sichuan province in China there were odd visual disturbances and they were caught on tape.  One puzzle is that the colors in the Chinese clouds were upside down from a normal circumzenithal halo – red pointing toward the horizon and blue to wards the Sun, instead of the other way round. 

There are reports of the use of HAARP and plasma weapons that influence our 3rd planet from the sun, and us mere mortals who inhabit it. The bizarre Benjamin Fulford [ http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Benjamin_Fulford] talks sometimes with radical expressions, tries to bring clarity to current events and takes note of anomalies that occur before earthquakes. 

He also rants of  a complex web of global financial control at the hands of the Rockefeller’s and Rothschild’s.  Could Tesla’s scientific discoveries be what the global political monetary elite need to further enhance The New World Order?  Would a secret government use HAARP to do dastardly deeds? 

Conceivably then, if one were to mess with the ionosphere could you cause  an earthquake ?  HAARP is based out of Alaska, where not only are we witnessing an increase of earthquakes, but the eruption of volcanoes.  http://www.haarp.alaska.edu/  The site gives the impression that HAARP is of academic use, but what of military use and popluation control?  What about disruptions to airplane and missile guidance systems?  Could shifts in the earths electromagnet fields {EMF} completely knock out communications?  No wonder Sarah Palin is staying close to home.

Is HAARP responsible for the global warming hysteria?   Could it now alter the weather?  In 1958, then chief  White House adviser on weather modification- Captain Howard T. Orville said the U.S. Defense Department was looking for ways, “to manipulate the charges of the earth and sky and so affect the weather by using an electronic beam to ionize or de- ionize the atmosphere over a specific area.  Today, an ice bridge in the Antarctic collapsed and the Wilkins Ice Shelf could be on the brink of breaking away. http://www.redorbit.com/news/science/1666172/ice_bridge_ruptures_in_antarctic/  Is HAARP melting ice? Is HAARP mapping weather patterns, agricultural seasons and crop cycles, or influencing them?

In the book, Angels Don’t Play This Haarp: Advances in Tesla Technology by Nick Begich, provides documentation, patent numbers and references that are far from science fiction.  http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/0964881209/celebritywebsi05/

Research continues from scientists outside of HAARP. PhysOrg.com reports on the world of quantum mechanics finding that solid particles could exhibit properties of waves; not just light waves.  The research is so new that it’s uses are still untold.  http://www.physorg.com/news157375449.html  Makes me think of Star Trek and beam me up potential. Could we see astral projections from this kind of technology?

Not only are we seeing an increase of earthquakes, but reports from Maryland, Virginia and North Carolina described brilliant, streaking lights followed by an explosion-like sounds.  They also reported seeing “great balls of fire” lighting up the sky in shades of yellow, white orange and blue. Hat tip to http://anointedvessel.wordpress.com/2009/03/30/549/#comment-200  U.S. Naval Observatory blamed it all on exploding space junk from the Russian Soyuz rocket.

North Korea says it sent a satellite into orbit as part of a peaceful space program, and that the device is broadcasting revolutionary music over Earth.  Perhaps some exploding  junk was over Italy causing the earthquake- U.S. military said nothing entered into orbit. 

A lot to consider in the conspiracy realm of heaven, earth and all things invisable and unknown.  In reality, we will have a full moon on April 9.  This full moon marks the beginning of Passover and setting the date for the feast of Easter.  Also known as the Paschal Moon, Grass Moon, or Egg Moon, it is the first Full Moon to occur after the vernal equinox, the annual awakening of life after the long winter.  

The morning of the 8th features Birkat Hachamah, the Jewish ritual of “Blessing the Sun” which occurs every 28 years.  According to Talmudic tradition, the Sun was created on the fourth day, which was a Wednesday.  In Roman times the new year began on the day of the vernal equinox, which fell on March 25 some 2400 years ago. http://www.usno.navy.mil/USNO/tours-events/sky-this-week/the-sky-this-week-april-3-10-2009

Let’s hope HAARP doesn’t zap the Easter Bunny.
