Na Pohaku La’au | Healing Crystals – Moonstone

Moonstone is best known for its pearly sheen, or schiller effect, where light reflects off of the two types of feldspar that make this stone, orthoclase and albite. These two minerals grow together in alternating layers, and a phenomena named adularescence happens whenever light hits this play of orthoclase and albite. No matter what term you use to describe this play of light across moonstone, it is certainly beautiful.

Moonstone has a rich history and abundant folklore. Its story begins in ancient Rome, where it was believed moonstone was formed from solidified beams of moonlight. They also held that the Roman goddess Diana, goddess of the moon, could be seen within the stone, and that it would bestow love, wisdom and good fortune upon those who possessed it. They believed it would help keep the mind clear, so that its owner could make the smartest and wisest choices in life, and even enhance the wearer?s ability for second-sight or prophecy. Moonstone was a most popular jewelry choice, being such a magical looking stone, and having such benefits for its wearer.

In India, Moonstone was a sacred stone. Its powers as a love stone made it useful as a traditional wedding gift, and was thought to be instrumental in reconciling estranged lovers. There was a belief in India and in Europe that two people wearing moonstone on the full moon would fall passionately in love. The moonstone?s history in India includes the belief that since the beginning of time, a moonstone had been set into the forehead of India?s moon god, Chandra. In fact, his full name was Chandra Shekara, which means ?Person who wears the moon.? The stone on Chandra?s forehead was said to grow dimmer or become more bright with the waning and waxing of the moon (and the waxing and waning of Chandra?s power), thus giving the gem the name ?moon stone.?

Moonstone also has a long history as a ?Traveler?s Stone.? When worn as an amulet, moonstone was said to protect travelers, especially at night, and especially when the moon is shining. Ancient mariners believed it would protect them when traveling over water. Some suggest keeping a moonstone in a pocket, or otherwise stashed in your car or aboard your usual mode of transport for extra protection when abroad at night.

In more recent history, during the Art Nouveau period (1890-1910), the moonstone gained a resurgence in popularity. The French master goldsmith Rene Lalique led the way creating stunning pieces of jewelry featuring the moonstone. Though now most of Lalique?s jewelry is in museums, plenty of jewelers all over the US and Europe were beginning to work with moonstone again. Such jeweled creations no doubt benefitted from beliefs such as giving your lover a moonstone necklace during the full moon would create endless passion for the loving couple.

Throughout the ages, moonstone has been synonymous with the moon, magic, love, good fortune, and protection. One myth says that blue moonstones are washed up by the ocean tides every twenty-one years, and another claims that moonstone will lose its pretty shine and sheen if the owner of the stone keeps a lot of anger pent up inside. Later, during the Middle Ages, moonstone was used for scrying the future.

Today, moonstone is the state gem for Florida.

Spiritual Attributes

Moonstone is said to have many intuitive and emotional properties. It helps tap into the more gentle qualities of love and peace, especially if the person has had to close up their emotions for survival (think police, active duty military, rescue workers, therapists, or those grieving). Moonstone helps bring out an empathic response, bringing feeling back to those who?ve been numb. Yet moonstone is protective as well, and will open a person up as far as they are able, but not so much that they are overwhelmed. It naturally helps compassion and tenderness unfold in a healthy way. This ability to increase empathy makes moonstone useful for people in leadership positions, management, and coaches also, to help them stay in touch with the people they need to direct and make decisions for. For people who already feel, moonstone can bring up old, old emotions that still need to be worked through. It will assist the calming of fears and the smoothing out of hormonal mood swings. Moonstone is a stone of that brings out the nurturing in feeling.

Along with moonstone?s ability to open the heart to compassionate love, it also opens the way for more romantic love. The moonstone has long been used as a gift for lovers, and for those wishing to secure the passions of their partner. One folk tale said that wearing a moonstone in a piece of jewelry during the full moon while making love would increase the chances of fertility.

Moonstone is said to increase one?s sensitivity to the Divine, to heighten intuition and open one up to their psychic gifts. There is a certain positivity to moonstone in that it encourages hope and inspiration, allowing you to wish and aspire and flow in harmony with your dreams (especially if you?ve already used moonstone to help work through any past emotional issues). Moonstone is said to help fulfill the things in life that one actually needs. It does not always attract what you want, but it will always attract what you need, and it will also help you to understand the difference between the two.

There is a long rich history of moonstone being used to help with women?s needs. It is a stone of protection for women and children, especially pregnant women and babies. It has been used for centuries to enhance fertility, such as the ancient practice (still around today) that some Middle Eastern women have of sewing moonstones into their clothing if they would like to have a child. Besides its role as a fertility stone, it is also believed to support women?s reproductive health all around?. from easing menstrual problems, to assisting a woman in childbirth. It is said to help soothe wild hormones, and as such is often recommended to teenagers and women going through various changes in their life (pregnancy, menopause). Considered a ?stone of the goddess? by some, the moonstone is associated with the moon and the tides, femininity and the subconscious. It helps sync up the rhythms of lunar energy to the rhythms of a woman?s body.

Moonstone also plays a role as a sleep stone. It is said to assist with lucid dreaming when tucked beneath one?s pillow. Some believe if you meditate with a moonstone right before going to bed, it will grant you a restful night of sleep.

WHY THE UNDERGROUND RAILROAD

The Underground Railroad was a network of secret routes and safe houses established in the United States during the early to mid 19th century. They were used by African American slaves to escape into free states and Canada with the aid of abolitionists and allies who were sympathetic to their cause. The original Underground Railroad was a group that acted and infiltrated.

THEOSOPHY | THE INMOST SANCTUARY – I

   The ‘Master’ in the sanctuary of our souls is ‘the Higher Self’ — the divine spirit whose consciousness is based upon and derived solely (at any rate during the mortal life of the man in whom it is captive) from the Mind, which we have agreed to call the Human Soul (the ‘spiritual soul’ being the vehicle of the Spirit). In its turn the former (the personal or human soul) is a compound in its highest form, of spiritual aspirations, volitions, and divine love; and in its lower aspect, of animal desires and terrestrial passions imparted to it by its associations with its vehicle, the seat of all these.

H.P. Blavatsky

 Restoration of the right relationship between the Master in the inmost sanctuary and the incarnated consciousness is gained only through a sacrificial process of self-purification. Obscuring and polluting tendencies nurtured in the mind through its misuse over many lives must be removed by a self-chosen and self-administered therapy. Like the Pandava brothers exiled from their kingdom through their own folly, or like the master held prisoner in his own house by those who should be his servants in the parable of Jesus, the pristine divine ray of the Logos in man is trapped and stripped of its sovereign place in human life unless consciously sought by the aspirant. This invocation of wisdom through the supplication of the mind to the spirit was seen by the ancient Greeks as the cultivation of sophrosyne — the subordination of the inferior element to the superior. It is shown in The Voice of the Silence as the shila virtue — the attunement of thought, will and feeling to the pulsation of divine harmony, Alaya-Akasha. The mind stands as the critical link between the divine and the animal nature. The recovery and right use of the privilege of human existence depend upon the subordination of the elements of the lower rupa existence to the spiritual ideation of Arupa Manas.

 The sacrificial posture and selfless motive required for this self-purification can be readily grasped through a telling analogy. There is not a modern metropolis which does not maintain the equipment needed to neutralize the effluvia of human waste and thereby reduce the danger of infection to its population. Similarly, a large number of devices are available, both to cities and to individuals, for the purpose of removing sediments and impurities from drinking water, through distillation, filtration and osmosis, to make it available in a purer and fresher form. With the human mind the same principles of public health and civic responsibility would require that each individual and every society strive to purify the muddy stream of human passions which pollute those coming into contact with it. Every human being has received the crystalline waters of life in a pure and unsullied condition, and therefore everyone has the karmic responsibility for every failure to return these waters to the ocean of life in a pristine condition. Insofar as this responsibility has been neglected by individuals, under karma in successive lives they are self-condemned to immersion in the waters they themselves have poisoned. Under the laws of karma affecting the processes of reincarnation and the transmigration of life-atoms, individuals owe it to their neighbours and their descendants, as well as to themselves, to purify their mental emanations.

 In practice, this implies a continuous cleansing of one’s thoughts, one’s words and one’s actions; these in turn fundamentally depend upon the purification of the will. Unfortunately, purification of the will, which is vital to the spiritual regeneration of humanity, is itself seriously misunderstood as a consequence of the process of pollution of consciousness and magnetism. Mired in the morbid obscuration of higher consciousness, too many people suppose that a bolstering of the lower will is a means to survival. Nothing could be farther from the truth. The higher spiritual will does not itself need to be strengthened, but it may be released through the removal of obscurations and hindrances. So long as the will is activated by the individual only on behalf of passions and the illusion of the persona, that will is not worth having.  Hence, many people have discovered that the will cannot be released on behalf of lesser purposes. This predicament is conspicuous in those diseased societies which place an inordinate emphasis upon the personal will. Will itself is a pure colourless principle which cannot be dissociated from the energy of the Atman released through breathing. Thus when human beings breathe benevolently, blessing others with every breath, they can release the beneficent will-energy of the Atman. As soon as the will is released on behalf of the personal ego, however, against other human beings, it is blunted. This inevitable paralysis of the antagonistic lower will is indeed a beneficent and therapeutic aspect of karma.

 Viewed from a collective standpoint, many human beings can be seen as having been weakened because they have absorbed life-atoms from others who have misused spiritual knowledge and the potency of the higher will. Throughout the world perhaps one in ten persons has insistently used the will against other human beings in this or previous lives. This may have been for the sake of bolstering the insecure identity of the persona or, worse, through the misuse of spiritual knowledge connected with false meditation, indulgence in drugs and mediumistic practices. Since 1966 contemporary society has witnessed the emergence of a number of centres of pseudo-spiritual activity; now it is witnessing the inevitable psychological breakdown of many who were responsible for this moral pollution. The waves of spiritual influence initiated by the descent of Krishna offer golden opportunities to all souls, including those inverted natures self-blocked from inward growth by their own failures on the Path in previous lives. Amongst these there were some too cowardly to make a new beginning, who sought instead to compensate for their own weakness and delusion by cashing in on the currents of the 1975 Cycle. Having forfeited timely opportunities offered through compassion, they are self-destroyed when Krishna takes a firm stand on behalf of the entire human family because they are unable to generate a genuine concern for others. Never having generated an interest in the welfare of the vast majority of mankind, they are self-condemned. Sadly, they cast a long shadow over a much larger class of weaker souls who are affected by them, no doubt through their own delusions and vulnerabilities.

 Persons are sometimes drawn into dangerous orbits of misused knowledge through loose talk about such sacred subjects as kundalini, kriyashakti and the activation of the higher spiritual centres in man. Ordinary people who enjoy a normal measure of spiritual health wisely avoid those places where they are likely to hear profane chatter. Through a natural sense of spiritual good taste they simply shun those places where self-deluded con men congregate to make a living off the gullible. Today, because the moral and spiritual requirements for participation in the humanity of the future have become more evident to many people, the market for such deceptive opportunism has begun to diminish. The America of P.T. Barnum, who said that a sucker is born every moment, has been replaced to a large extent by the America of Abraham Lincoln, where, as is well known, one cannot fool all the people all the time. Although many souls have to travel a great distance along the path of self-integration, they have learnt enough not to be duped by pseudo-spiritual blandishments. Just as they have learnt not to believe everything conveyed by the mass media and not to leap at every free offer or supermarket discount, they have also learnt to pass up invitations for instant development of kundalini and every facile promise of spiritual development that dispenses with the judicious control of the emotions and passions.

 Even in the difficult area of sexuality the idea of strength through celibacy (e.g. Gabrielle Brown, The New Celibacy, 1980) has gained some currency amongst many people, young and old, who find the burden of ego-games and unequal experimentation intolerable. There is nothing wrong with the sacred act of communion and procreation, and as the ancient Jews believed, God is pleased when a man and a woman come together in true unison. Nor need this issue be obscured by pseudo-arguments concerning the Malthusian spectre of over-population. As the economist E.F. Schumacher pointed out, even if the entire population of the globe were concentrated in America, this would result in a population density no greater than that of Great Britain, a nation long noted for the spaciousness and greenery of its countryside. North America itself, over its ancient and almost entirely unwritten history, has supported many varied civilizations, some of which displayed a much greater spiritual maturity than is evidenced in its recent history. Broadly, one cannot understand the physical facts of life on earth, much less the spiritual facts of life, through a language of conflicting claims and counter-claims, rationalizations and compensatory illusions, or pseudo-sophisticated statistical arguments based upon a selfish and shallow view of the nature of the human psyche.

La’au Lapa’au | Propagating Rosemary Plants with Stem Cuttings

Plant propagation is just a fancy word for making more plants from what you have. I love to propagate the plants in my garden. To me, it is magical that an entire shrub can be created from cutting six inches off the stem. Taking stem cuttings is an easy way to make more shrubs to fill in gaps in the garden or to share plants with gardening friends. […]

Poet’s Corner | Freedom To Be, posted by Tayari Blackwood

May be an image of sky, nature, ocean and palm trees
A beautiful Hawaiian sunrise

She is being freed from the shackles and bonds,
All which held her under heel, for so long …
She is learning to totally let go of the past,
All which no longer serves her highest soul growth and good,
All which is still keeping her in the Old Earth.

She is moving in the highest loving Grace,
Of true forgiveness,
And is filled with the immense power of Unconditional love.
She is rising.
She is flourishing.
She is inspired.
She is allowing herself to step into her new form – her new embodiment

With anticipation,
With awe and wonder,
Embracing the miracle of a total rebirth,
As the Old shell of the old embodiment is shed,
And the New and much Higher Dimensional Embodiment forms in and around her.

She is no longer taking anything personally,
Knowing that every soul she encounters is but a reflection of her own face,
And more than this, is part and particle of the Creator,
As much as she is.

She is embracing her own Divinity,
And thus finds the Divinity reflected in every soul she meets,
And encounters and interacts with –
For the Divine is ever present within every soul
And within every encounter there are hidden diamonds and nuggets of Gold,
For every encounter holds within it the Power of unconditional love.

She is dancing the Celestial dance of the Music of the Spheres,
Of Unity and Oneness,
As she embraces her own Galactic Heritage,
For her soul is Universal
And she embraces her own Goddess hood,
With joy,
With love,
And with exuberance.

She knows she is now stepping into a totally new creation,
And it fills her with wonder and awe.
She loves exploring, experiencing, and getting to know
A totally new life and new existence.

She is ever fully present in every moment’s unfolding,
Knowing that with every thought she thinks,
Every word she speaks.
Every action she takes.
She is co-creating her new existence
And that indeed the New Golden Age
In the New Earth.

She is taking responsibility for everything she creates.

As she now stands in the fullness of her Soul Mastery
For She knows who and what she in truth is,
And she embraces her own Divinity
And lives this from the depths of her heart and soul
And all that she in truth is
And was created to be.

She stands in the fullness and glory of her own truth,
Knowing that in her new regained freedom
She is more than enough,
Just the way she is.
She is singing the songs of her soul
And as they reverberate outwards
From the Center of her Sacred heart,
Her songs are touching the heart and soul strings
Of all she encounters …
And they, in turn, are now tuning in
And allowing their own soul songs
To rise
Until all becomes one song
One heart
One Creation!

She is filled with gratitude
And is thanking the Divine
For every moment of being alive
And for the opportunity
To create a new and balanced, harmonic,
Joyful and beautiful new life for herself
In much higher dimension
And much higher vibrational state.
She is tapping into the infinite knowing of her own soul
And all the knowledge Her soul has gathered from all lifetimes,
Parallel lives and universes,
And she gifts this to herself and others.

She is embracing the Power of Love.
She is living life and Life more abundantly.
As the Living Waters of Life
Are pouring through her.
She is radiant.
She is beautiful – inside and out.
She is the New Creation.
She is the New Earth.
She is the New Golden Age.
She has come.
She is here.
She is Love.

Da Kine Pidgin | Hawaiian Creole

What is Hawaiian Pidgin? Is it “broken English” or something else? For many people visiting Hawaii, they might think that the local language is not proper. In this video, Avi Penhollow explains what Pidgin is and how our views about language are shaped – many times in ways that are harmful.

Avi is a researcher in language and literacy, and for several years he worked in Wai’anae on the west coast of O’ahu. His first full encounter with Hawaiian pidgin was on his first day doing his laundry at “Da Wash Spot” in Makaha. There he met an auntie who showed him much aloha and talked for about an hour. Avi left realizing he only understood about half of the conversation. But over time, as he worked with his students and lived in the Wai’anae community – he began to learn much more about not just Pidgin, but the history and culture of Hawai’i. This video could not have been made without the love and support of the Kamaile ohana and kumus who supported the work.

This video was created for a class Avi was taking during his masters program. It was never meant to be public. His plan was to remake it into a short documentary film, but until then – this is what we have. If you are da kine, please know that the haole that produced this video respects your language and life. His goal is to spread the word to all those who do not know about the history and culture. There are mistakes in here for sure. Avi knows that he doesn’t get everything right – because that would take a lifetime. Mahalo nui loa for all those visiting and sharing your aloha in the comments.

 

Mahalo to Andy Bumatai for his mana’o from “The Daily Pidgin Show.” Please visit his channel: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list…

Sound Healing Mediitation | Pineal Gland Detox & Decalciification (3 hrs.)

“We have noted that positive effects have been felt immediately by listeners however we recommend a break of at least one hour between each session.”

With such popular demand over the last year and numerous requests to do so; we have focused our full attention on producing yet another soundtrack with such delicate yet precise frequencies concentrated directly and solely at the Pineal Gland. Many claim that healing, detoxing or decalcifying the Pineal Gland to be so utterly essential in preparations of the opening of the third eye and we have addressed this head-on with everything in our technological audio advances to do so. As we understand, “Fluoride is everywhere, and so the calcification of the mind is apparent everywhere we look, it is unavoidable as such is the modern world. We can either combat this with a phenomenally strict diet or break away the toxins from the Pineal Gland altogether using strong frequencies, frequencies such as the ones used in this audio track. Please wear headphones for optimal results and sit or lie comfortably, preferably with the eyes closed.”

For best results we recommend listening to this track at least once per week. You will notice positive results within 3 times of listening to this track, however we recommend a break of at least one hour between each session.

Listen to this audio track as much as you feel comfortable, either sitting or lying in a comfortable position. Headphones are generally advised when listening to meditation music to avoid distractions – but not essential.

Meditation | The Pathless Path – 4

These guided meditations are not from any particular tradition, but could be seen as reflecting the perennial teaching inherent to many traditions. They have been created to help convey the practice that will lead to Samadhi, which is realization of your true nature beyond this limited form. Integral to this ancient form of meditation is the cultivating of the skills of concentration and inner surrender (mindfulness), which has been shown to have many side benefits such as reduction of stress, increased attention and cognitive abilities, increased compassion, tolerance, creativity, emotional intelligence, self awareness, ability to break addictions, and a variety of health benefits. As we move through the practices we move from shorter periods of meditation to longer periods, and we move from using techniques to choiceless awareness. We move from mind fullness to mind emptiness, and to realizing the non-dual state or the Samadhi state which is beyond fullness and emptiness.

This meditation series is divided into 3 parts; beginner, intermediate and advanced, going progressively deeper into meditation and self inquiry. We will start by narrowly focusing on the breath, which will help to cultivate presence and equanimity. Once you have practiced the beginner meditations and you are able to stay with the breath at the nostrils for long periods of time, you can move to the intermediate meditations where we start to observe the entire field of changing phenomena throughout the body. Once you have practiced the intermediate meditations and are able to be with the field of changing phenomena, you can move to the advanced meditations where we will start to observe consciousness itself. These meditations can be seen as preparation for the longer 1 hour meditations in the Samadhi Guided Meditation Series. https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list…

Practice in a comfortable position, sitting on a cushion, chair or meditation bench and make sure your spine is straight. Rest your hands in whatever position you like. Once you have found a comfortable position, make an intention to stay in that position for the whole meditation without shifting or moving. The eyes can be open or closed. If they are too open you may become distracted, and if fully closed your meditation may become foggy or dull. So adjust your practice accordingly so that your meditation is vivid and lucid.

 

Energy Update | February 28, 2021

Be open to unexpected blessings. What belongs to you will effortlessly flow into your life in a way that might currently seem unimaginable. This is why you must stay open to possibilities instead of perceived ideas of what’s in the way. Nothing or nobody can stop your blessings or what’s meant to be for you. You are the one that decides and declares your experiences. Deep within you, you know what you truly want. Let that be your focus. Let that be your inspiration to keep going. Instead of worrying about how, just relax and be in a deserving state to receive. Believe that it is already yours. Start owning and being the energy of what you want to receive.

 

Never worry, stress, or overthink how everything you’re going to manifest or receive will happen for you. Just believe that it will. Believe in it. There’s great power in believing what you can envision in your mind, not really in what’s happening in front of you. Everything that can happen for you, starts with a single thought. You have to believe in it till it shows up. The more you believe in that thought, the more you will feel it. The more you feel it, the quicker it will manifest it into your reality. You should trust in the greater power that’s constantly aligning everything for you through your visions and inner state of being.

 

Choose to connect with your inner self for guidance through this process of change and receiving. You will grow stronger everyday, because you trust the energy that sustains you. How can you not trust the source that powers all of life so precisely without a single error? Don’t let fear, negativity, and lower your energy and steal your shine. Noticing blessings is just a matter of perspective. See the light in every situation. See what’s moving everything and what’s giving it so much life. Connect with it. Be ready for sudden breakthroughs. What you feel and think is already coming towards you. Just start counting your blessing and celebrating who you are right now. Self-acceptance and self-love is the shift that will make everything align for you.

These guided meditations are not from any particular tradition, but could be seen as reflecting the perennial teaching inherent to many traditions. They have been created to help convey the practice that will lead to Samadhi, which is realization of your true nature beyond this limited form. Integral to this ancient form of meditation is the cultivating of the skills of concentration and inner surrender (mindfulness), which has been shown to have many side benefits such as reduction of stress, increased attention and cognitive abilities, increased compassion, tolerance, creativity, emotional intelligence, self awareness, ability to break addictions, and a variety of health benefits. As we move through the practices we move from shorter periods of meditation to longer periods, and we move from using techniques to choiceless awareness. We move from mind fullness to mind emptiness, and to realizing the non-dual state or the Samadhi state which is beyond fullness and emptiness.

This meditation series is divided into 3 parts; beginner, intermediate and advanced, going progressively deeper into meditation and self inquiry. We will start by narrowly focusing on the breath, which will help to cultivate presence and equanimity. Once you have practiced the beginner meditations and you are able to stay with the breath at the nostrils for long periods of time, you can move to the intermediate meditations where we start to observe the entire field of changing phenomena throughout the body. Once you have practiced the intermediate meditations and are able to be with the field of changing phenomena, you can move to the advanced meditations where we will start to observe consciousness itself. These meditations can be seen as preparation for the longer 1 hour meditations in the Samadhi Guided Meditation Series. https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list…

Practice in a comfortable position, sitting on a cushion, chair or meditation bench and make sure your spine is straight. Rest your hands in whatever position you like. Once you have found a comfortable position, make an intention to stay in that position for the whole meditation without shifting or moving. The eyes can be open or closed. If they are too open you may become distracted, and if fully closed your meditation may become foggy or dull. So adjust your practice accordingly so that your meditation is vivid and lucid.
