Falling Into Alignment at the Fall Equinox

Featured

Udja. Uben Nefer Nehast.

Greetings, Good Rising and Great Awakening.

Welcome to the HeruScopes Analysis for Fall Equinox 2019.

Of course, we begin with the Equinox Song, originally composed by John Coltrane. His birthday is actually September 23, same as my granddad’s. This song was recorded in Rio de Janeiro. But that is another story for another day…

According to Babylonian /Western Astrology, the Fall Equinox takes place when the Sun moves into the sign of Libra. However, according to Sidereal Astrology, 13 Month Sidereal Astrology NASA and HeruScopes, the Autumnal Equinox, usually around September 21-23, occurs while the Sun is in the Constellation of Sidereal Virgo. This analysis is NOT an attempt to explain the difference between the systems. All I can say is that I am going to follow the guidance of the Stars, not a gang of thieves and liars. I prefer to use a system that is based on the ACTUAL motion of the Sun and Planets through the Constellations, as opposed to a man-made system created by terrorists and plagiarists, that is based on Earth’s orbit around the Sun instead….

One of the main reasons for this difference is due to the Precession of the Equinox, which we all experience as the Change of the Seasons, due the the Earth’s Tilt. Precession of the Equinox causes time to move forward one day every 70 years. A system that acknowledges seasons changing, and yet ignores the Precession of the Equinox is well, INSANE as well as IN DENIAL and DECEPTIVE. Keeping the masses locked into a system of artificial time, is evil, especially when we know that time does not exist: it is a tool to help us navigate and coordinate through life, but it is also something created by man, not Nature. 

Fall Equinox occurs on Monday September 23 at 2.5 hours after midnight/2:50 am, central time. The Equinox actually lasts 3 days. Same as the New and Full Moons as well as the Solstices. Equinox is supposed to be the time where day equals night,. My research has shown me that Fall Equinox, when the hours of night and day are equal, might actually occur in October, and the Spring Equinox is in February. More to come on that subject.

The Equinox represents putting things in alignment with All That Is, with the Cosmos. It is a time of Acceptance of what Is, and Letting Go of what no longer serves you. This can show up as ending relationships, jobs, anything that is holding you back. 

In my case, I am working on letting go of a huge heartache. Letting go of wishing that relationships that ended long ago would be resolved. Funny thing is, I do not miss the actual person, I miss having interactions with people that I do not miss! THAT SOUNDS INSANE, doesn’t it? This longing is based on the fact that I am related to these people, and on what I thought these relationships should be like. On what Family is supposed to be like. This is a judgement that I have placed on my self, my life, my choices, my spiritual path, my character. This in turn causes much doubt and more unhappiness. And, this line of thinking is not serving me, and is indeed holding me back, weighing me down, because it feels sad to move forward without them in my life. So, I am working on letting go of attachments to what I wanted to happen, and to be more present with what is actually happening. This applies to habits, thoughts, environments….Sometimes, I also feel guilty for how my trauma affected these relationships. And there is absolutely not one thing that I can do about this. Fall Equinox cuts through the crap, and we can either align, or get turned into compost for the New Day. 

On with the HeruScopes Analysis…..

Dua Ra Dua HetHeru Dua Djehuty M Aspolia

Sun, Venus and Mercury in Sidereal Virgo. 

Aspolia is the Ancient Egyptian (possibly with Greek influence) name for this constellation, and it means literally, the Seed. At HeruScopes, this very long month (45 Days) is seen as the time to PLANT YOUR INTENTIONS IN THE GARDEN OF YOUR LIFE. With the Equinox taking place during this time, it makes sense to bring align your life by working with the Power of Intention. There are so many practices for this, here are 2 examples:

1. Everyday, write out one intention 10 times or
2. Everyday, write out a list of 10 different intentions.

It is also important to write them out, but not go back and look at them or tweak them. Just Set them and forget them, let the Universe do the magic. Being stressed about them is not part of the practice. 

Virgo is associated with Order, Detail, Organization. Structure. It is crucial to make sure that these structures do not become a prison for you, in other words, it is important to BE FLEXIBLE. Set goals, state intentions, but do not allow yourself to become attached to the results. The Seeds of Intention to Plant at this time correspond to the Planets that are in Virgo at this time: Seeds of Creativity that bring Order. Seeds of Love and Beauty, seeing the beauty in Structure and order. Loving the discipline it will take to take your life to the next level, rather than dreading it, or even escaping  it. Ahhh, Mercury: communications, Divine Intelligence. The Cosmic Mind of Djehuty. Thank goodness, it is NOT retrograde!!! The thing about Djehuty: allow the Cosmic Mind to write out these intentions: start away from the Lower Ego attempting to m are decision or take control. The ongoing battle….

Establishing systems of order & organization, creating a structure that will serve and empower me towards sustaining an enlightened lifestyle filled with music and sound healing plus the other wellness products and services I am here to provide. This is my focus for the coming year. These are the seeds of intention that I am planting with this Fall Equinox. 

These are the details that have been missing in running the Temple and participating in the Music Business. I was not fully grounded in the details, I had a great deal of animosity towards all of the digitalization of the music industry, and attempted to live life as if these things, mainly marketing, promotions, sales, did not matter, because the music is so spiritual, healing. Such strong deep cultural roots. Can only go so far with this, then the whole thing comes to a stop.

Digging deep, planting seeds of intention, fully embracing this Virgo energy. Sun is in Sidereal Virgo until October 31. Dua Aspolia.

Dua Juno, Dua Set M Sekhmet

Juno and Mars in Sidereal Leo.

Juno deals with marriage, partnership, soulmates. It represents the partner we NEED in life, not the same as the one that we desire. Leo/Sekhmet represents the Warrior, the Healer. Let’s look at this from a different angle: the relationship with Our Self, Our Higher Self. The Divine within. How can we be a better partner to Our Self? To the Divine. We are Co-Creators, remember???? 

With the Sekhmet energy, we find the ability to cut ties that bind, bringing us liberation and freedom. Slicing away habits and reactions that cause more problems. During this time, we can find the courage to carry out our intentions in regards to this relationship. Finding the Courage to Stand in One’s Truth. This might not look like anyone else’s path, however, and that is where the courage comes in again. We can carve out time for more Self Care, putting us in the position for starting healthy NEW relationships with those that are also willing to do the work.  

Juno in Leo from cafe astrology.com
:Juno in Leo: You can be utterly offended if others treat you as if you’re petty, calculating, stingy, not worthy, or not generous. These are triggers. You prefer that people treat you with respect and courtesy more than anything. You want to give off the air of success and being above pettiness, and you become frustrated if people expect or think less than these things about you.” 

wow, I just had this experience with a colleague the other day. Just imagine how this would show up in your partnership with the Divine. Yep, PURE EGO! 

Mars in Leo addresses our drive to win, our will and determination to succeed. Set is of course associated with the Lower Ego, and knowing how to control, not kill the Ego. The Ego also has it place, and is here to serve Creation. 

Mars/Set in Sidereal Leo/Sekhmet: Set and Sekhmet are 2 of the most powerful Neters because they were able to sublimate their lower nature and find peace and inner balance. They found or rediscovered their Divinity. During this time, we are assisted by the Celestial Forces as we carry out this mission in our own lives. Using the knife of Sekhmet to cut away those negative tendencies, thoughts, and create new patterns new levels of awareness. Remember, it was the Wisdom of Djehuty, the Cosmic Mind, that allowed Sekhmet to reawaken to her Divinity, and it is the same for us. In the case of Set, he and all other accepted the fact that no one can escape Death, and that it is wiser to live in alignment with the Universe, than it is to follow egoistic desires and fight against Reality. Both of these can be very difficult, and yet essential in order to WIN AT LIFE, which is the purpose of these HeruScopes! To be the Heru/Hero of our own Myth, Our Story of Life. 

Planting seeds of intention for healthy relationship with Self, leading to healthy relationships and partnerships with healthy people. “I surround My Self with Light Beings that support and share in my Vision”. BY healthy, I mean physical and spiritual health and wellness.

Dua Sesheta M PiMahi

Moon in Sidereal Gemini.

In modern times, this constellation has been represented as the Twins. However, in Kemet, it was called The Lovers. Again, let us look at our relationship with the Self: Self Love. Sesheta is the Goddess of Writing. Gemini is ruled by Mercury/Djehuty, her Partner. Another match made in heaven. Pick up your pen and write if you want to learn more about your Self. Or type if your pen is nowhere to be seen . The Moon is about the Personality, about building one’s character. Writing, journaling, music, poetry, etc, these are all excellent ways to KNOW THY SELF. Writing intentions has already been discussed, and in essence, when you write or speak your intentions, you are bringing them into physical existence, you are manifesting the life of your dreams. Since the Moon is in Gemini, how about when doing your writing, write a love letter to Your Self. Write out a letter addressing the Self about the Life of your dreams, as is talking with the Love of Your Life, because YOU ARE! 

Honestly, I have never tried this. Usually when I do my journal work, or write intentions, it is more like I am the executive CEO of my Life. Like I am a life professional or something! LOL! It is all about the business. This will be something new for me to try. Writing a Love Letter to My Self, with the intention of getting to know my Self better as well as manifesting the Life of My Dreams, the Life of My Vision. 

When the Moon is in Gemini, it is close to my favorite star, Sirius. In fact, anytime the Moon is inside of the Sacred Hoop, it is a very special time….

The other planets have not changed much, so read previous reports for their analysis. Fortunately, both Saturn and Mercury are Direct for a few months.

In Summary: Fall Equinox, Fall into Alignment

Sidereal Virgo: Sun, Venus, Mercury

  • Creating Beautiful Systems of Order, Organization, Structure and Consistency
  • Allow the Cosmic Mind to Write out Your Intentions; not the Ego.
  • Plant Seeds in the Garden of Your Life.

Sidereal Leo: Juno, Mars

  • Examine your Partnership and relationship with Your Highest Self

Sidereal Gemini: Moon

  • Write a Love Letter to Your Self as you
  • Co-Create and Manifest your Intentions, Goals, Dreams and Visions.

For the KemeTones Cosmic Sound Healing Self care, use Yin Wei and Dai Mai for heartbreak and getting unstuck.

Here is the Cosmic Attunement for the Fall Equinox: Dua Ra Dua HetHeru Dua Djehuty.

Birthday Boat Ride with the Seadog!

Featured

After such a fabulous Birthday Lunch (read the recap and review of ATHEA’S), what could possibly top that? HOW ABOUT AN EXTREME SPEED BOAT RIDE ON LAKE MICHIGAN, AT NAVY PIER?????

There is little bit of background info that you must have: when Lluvia was 8 years old, our family: Mom, Brother, his Wife (before their children were born), both of my daughters, their dad, and my self went on a similar boat ride. It was also at Navy Pier. We missed the 5 pm ride and had to catch the 6 pm boat. Its was unseasonably chilly for August, and we did not have jackets or coats. The Sun was already going down when we started the ride. It was very cold out there on the water, and Lluvia got really sick. It appeared to have been caused by a combination of things: food poisoning, staying in a n apartment with heavy cigarette smokers that never opened their windows, and the cold boat ride. In fact, we almost lost her. She could not breathe through her nose, or her mouth. I realized that she would not get well within city limits, so we ended our trip early and headed south, back to Texas. As soon as we were out in the countryside of Illinois, she started breathing normally again,. It was terrifying. …. so going on this speed ride was actually about facing fears AND having fun while dong it!!!

Once we had purchased our tickets, we began to regret our decision, because just at the next dock, was a huge sailboat! We wished that we had seen that one first, and vowed to return for that ride…..of course after the ride, we did not mention the sailboat again!

before…..

Before getting on the boat, they take your picture. Lluvia was like, we don’t need a picture. But it was policy, to take everyone’s photo. Later on I reflected how this mis probably for safety measures as well as commercial ventures. We were told that the ride would be wet, and by the looks of the folks that got off the boat before us, this would be inevitable. It was so hit, that we were all ready to cool off. Of course, I ended jus buying the photos after the ride, because it was SO MUCH FUN!!! I especially love the fact that the photo is dated, with my birthdate.

At this point, we were just 2 people sitting on a boat, waiting for the ride to begin. I apologize in advance for the crazy video shots, because the boat was going really fast, and I was laughing uncontrollably. At times, I thought it was recording, but it was not, then, when I thought it was off, it was recording… sigh. It has been one entire week, and I am still laughing inside, can still feel the water pouring all over us, and the music they played just added to the experience.. Anyway, here come some video clips…

By the way, the announcer survives on tips, so have some cash in your pocket….

This is our after photo. We were drenched. had to walk around to dry off! LOL!! WAAAAAAY MORE FUN THAN A ROLLER COASTER…

After then ride, I was impelled to buy the official “before” photograph. Then we went on that crazy swing ride. I kept thinking, “what happens if one of these chains were to break?” But it was too much fun to worry about it. Here is a clip of the ride, no we are not in the swing, no photos allowed!

We ended this spectacular day by shopping at one of our favorite thrift shops. This was a fantastic fun day, and an excellent way to start off year 58.

If you are ever looking for something fun to do on birthdays, or when people come to visit you in Chicago, I would definitely recommend the Seadog. But only on a hot sunnier day….

thanks for checking out yet another Light Being Wellness Product review…..stay tuned for more to come.

Saturn Retrograde in Sidereal Sagittarius: Dua Geb M PiMaere

Saturn Retrograde in Sidereal Sagittarius: Dua Geb M PiMaere

HeruScopes for the Geb Portal Opening Asar Portal Opening M PiMaere:
Saturn Retrograde (4-29-2019 7:54 pm CST) with Pluto Rx in Sidereal Sagittarius

ASAR/Pluto

Saturn in Sagittarius, ah, I am all too familiar with this alignment, even the
Retrograde Part! LOL!! I have Saturn Rx in Sagittarius, AND Jupiter Rx in Capricorn!!! Double LOL!!! 

Saturn is known as the Limiter, The Restricter.  Deals with learning lessons in Life by how we deal with obstacles. Saturn is connected to Geb, the Physical Earth, the exact opposite of Sidereal Sagittarius, which is about expansion, travel, wisdom, fiery passion. 

But when opposites are in retrograde? What is this all about????

As you know, we do not view retrograde as a negative. At HeruScopes, the Retrograde is a Portal Opening, an intense experience of openings and breakthroughs. So this would mean an opening or a breakthrough in dealing with obstacles and limitations that keep us from expanding and attaining higher consciousness. Saturn, or Geb, is a force that holds us back, or we feel it when we become distracted by materialism. Like when you are trying to leave the house,  but at the last minute, you cannot find your keys. Just getting into your meditation, and the phone rings with an important call you have been waiting for. Saturn can feel like a heaviness, like gravity, that keeps you connected to the Earth, whereas Sagittarius is all about expansion and movement. This Retrograde is an opportunity to travel  WITHIN, beyond boundaries that no longer serve us, and break free of these limitations. Transcend the Restrictions of Saturn, with the One Pointedness, towards the Wisdom of Enlightenment, of Sagittarius.

During the next few months, we will be challenged by obstacles, barriers, limitations and boundaries. Until September 18, 2.019, the Portal will be open. This is our opportunity to see them as illusions, and break free of them. Sagittarius is the Hunter, seeking Freedom from limitation.

On the mythical level, we are dealing with the forces of Geb Asar and Amun. Metaphysically, Geb the Earth, Asar the Soul, and Amun, the Witnessing Consciousness. we are dealing with expanding our consciousness beyond limitations that were put in place so that we could have this experience of shattering the illusion of limitation. Anticipate contracts that will be broken and lead to better situations for all parties. Relationships ending resulting in stronger ones being established. On a mundane level, Saturn, Geb also deals with our finances. Our debt. Another technique is to be Amun (corresponds to Sagittarius, Jupiter), and observe and respond,  rather than react

Dua PiCheus Portal Opening Aset in Imhotep,
Jupiter Rx Ceres in Ophiuchus.

Jupiter Pi Cheus
Ceres

More Expansion, this time, in the area of Natural Healing. Wellness. Nurturing and Divine Intuition. Jupiter is Retrograde, so whatever has been stuck, delayed, postponed, immobilized, is now going to manifest. To be revealed. Perhaps it will feel like it is happening at Light Speed after having been stalled for so long. Due to the expansion of consciousness that occurs during this Portal Opening. Increase of Wisdom. The Witnessing Consciousness already knows all things. Trust Divine Intuition, especially during Healing Process. Be open to what may be contrary to Western Medicine. 

Jupiter is also associated with Abundance and Prosperity, so with all of the commercial interest in Wellness these days, why should it be any different for you or I?

Little Purapple: Cotton Bell Bottom Yoga Pants LBW Review

Featured

About 4 or 5 years ago, a friend asked me to write an article about yoga pants. I assured her that I was about to order some for myself, and that I would let her know when the article was complete. Little did I know that it would take so long for this to happen. It took me this long, because it took me this long to firmly establish my personal yoga practice. In January of this year, I began 100 days pdf yoga, devotion, meditation, juice, and Music Shedy. towards the end of this cycle, as if to commemorate the accomplishment, I made the time to do some research and order organic, sustainable yoga pants.

The same day that shot the video for the first review, I saw a post about how yoga pants are destroying the environment.

Yoga Pants are Destroying the Planet

returntoknow.net

Ironically, the pants people wear while meditating about world peace are polluting the ocean with microplastics

With New Agey names like Awake, Enlight, Balance and Align and a $100 price tag, you’d think those $100 Lululemon yoga pants  would be made of recycled, organic hemp in a fair-trade factory under a rainbow. But, alas, they’re made of 100% petroleum-based polyester, aka plastic.
And just like all other plastics, they end up in the ocean, via your washing machine…


I ordered from many different vendors from the Etsy.com website. I ordered various sizes as well, to determine which ones fit me the best.

So, I will begin a series of posts about the results. A series of youtube videos actually, and we shall see what happens next.

The first pair to be reviewed comes to us from littlepurapple.com. I found them on Etsy.com.. Women’s Premium Cotton 32″ bell bottom yoga pants.

These bells are so swell, that I call them GONG pants, because they are bigger than any bells I have seen! LOL!!

I ordered medium and large, because each brand has differences. This first pair is a large, and they fit very well, I think the medium will be even better. Sometimes, the mediums are too small for my derriere, so it is hit or miss. These fit well enough to keep however. They are suuuuupersoft! and the color is so lovely. I did not have to pull them up, they never got scrunchy, and the bells did not get in the way during the postures.

As for the top, believe it or not, it is from Target! I was there looking for a small table, and saw these called “bralettes”. I love them because there is no padding, perfect for tiny ladies like me, and liberating for ladies that usually wear bras all day. These are made from modal and cotton, plus a bit of lycra. Modal is made from bamboo, so these are definitely eco-fashion.

If you would like to buy these pants, visit here, and please tell them that Arit (aka Tchiya Amet)sent you their way!

They even offer discounts if you post a photo of you wearing their clothing! These pants feel great, looking forward to the next review! Dua for taking the time to care about what we wear….HOTEP

Comfrey

Featured

Comfrey is one of the main ingredients in the Dr. Christopher Bone, Flesh and Cartilage Formula. (Also known as BF&C, Bone Formula or Regeneration Tea) This Bone Formula is in  many of the TeaChiya Medicinal Salves.  Dr. Christopher came up with this formula when a mother came into his office with her teenage daughter. The daughter had a strange skin condition, that conventional doctors had given up on, and had given her a week to live. He describes it as gruesome: the flesh was literally falling off of her bones. He said he was horrified, and had no idea what to say to the mother. He tried really hard to not show his emotions, and prayed to God for something to say to this woman. What came to him was the now infamous BF&C Formula. He wrote it down, told her to “Try This” and handed her the piece of paper.

The mother and daughter returned a week later, and the condition had improved! By the end of a few months, the young girl was back to her normal state of health!

Many of my friends and clients, as well as myself,  have also had amazing results with the BF&C Formula. Some are even miraculous. Now that the formula is included in some of the TeaChiya line of Light Being Wellness Products, I decided it was time to investigate further into the healing properties of the individual herbs and learn why the TeaChiya Salves are so effective.

So, let us begin this wellness journey with COMFREY…..

People have been using this herb for generations. Some call it a folk remedy. Native Americans called it “Knit Bone”.  One thing that I did not know is that Comfrey is related to Borage, which is a blood purifier and helps make yummy breast milk.

 

from Mountain Rose Herbs:
Comfrey leaf has been used since Roman times, dating back thousands of years. This herb has been utilized in folk medicine throughout Europe and North America and has been widely cultivated. Much debate surrounds the safety of comfrey due to various parts and preparations containing potentially toxic alkaloids. It is important to understand that the part used, species, and time of harvest all come in to play when determining the safety of this herb. A large body of traditional use supports its safety and efficacy if used intelligently and cautiously.

Now this next website has more information on the “scientific study”. Here are some excerpts: Is It Safe to Use Comfrey?

Comfrey is Banned in Foodstuffs

Let’s start with comfrey’s status as a banned herb in South Africa as reported by one of our daily newspapers. Fact is, it is banned as an ingredient in foodstuffs. Yes that is right, you may not sell a foodstuff containing comfrey. And if you are into legal stuff then please read Regulation R1541 dated 13 December 2002 in terms of Act 54 of 1972 to see if there is any mention of growing it, having it, making a poultice or ointment, or any of the other ‘banned’ things as hyped up by the media.

The reason for its ban as a foodstuff ingredient is simple. Comfrey contains a class of substances called pyrrolizidine alkoloids or PA’s for short. Under certain conditions they apparently can cause the destruction of liver tissue by creating a condition known as hepatic veno-occlusive disease (HVOD), in which the cells lining the veins in the liver proliferate and choke off the veins.

Are You Human or a Rat?

So in comes our scientific method. To proof, or disproof, this to be the case, researchers fed a bunch of infant lab rats a diet of comfrey, twenty-eight times their body weight, over a period of nine weeks. During this time they were also injected isolated comfrey extracts. When the poor infants perished it was discovered that they did indeed had HVOD and, lo and behold, it was proven that comfrey was the cause.

Now since policy and law makers think that our human metabolism is identical to that of the rat which is susceptible to these PA’s, and not to that of the sheep which is resistant to PA’s, they had no choice but to take this scientific research seriously. The fact that you and I, as humans, would have to eat somewhere in the region of 80 comfrey leaves every single day for a period of nine weeks, to produce a similar ‘human experiment’ is of no importance.

THANK YOU FOR THAT. I have the same feelings about this so called scientific study. We are NOT rats, and who would eat 80 leaves per day for 9 weeks??????

common20comfrey

The author goes on to state that since 1980’s, there have been 4 cases of toxicity, each one involving basically overdosing: drinking ten cups a day plus taking capsules, also taking other pharmaceuticals and other health issues that probably contributed to the issues. The article also states that BEFORE THE 1980’S THERE WERE NO REPORTED INSTANCES OF TOXICITY! Which explains why the medical industry and FDA decided to conduct these tests on rats…..

Basically, anything that works naturally, the medical industrial complex will do their very best to discredit or ban the product. Then they will say that their artificial version is better. This of course we already know leads to side affects and a lifetime of addiction to harmful substances.

SimpleUnhookedLiving.com has lots more detailed info on the scientific studies

Testimonials from grassroots comfrey users

Elderly woman corrects anemic blood with comfrey. Emsie du Plessis, 78, was among the comfrey eaters in the Doubleday trials conducted by Dr. Clare Anderson. After feeling weak and dizzy in her garden one day, she went to the doctor who said she was a bit anemic. Ms du Plessis began consuming three to four leaves of raw comfrey every day, and when she went back for a checkup a few weeks later, the doctor said her blood was perfect.

89 year-old comfrey user claims MD says he’s in perfect health. In 1991 Andrew Hughes, a comfrey user, published Comfrey, Nature’s Healing Herb and Health Food, which includes anecdotal stories of the benefits of ingesting comfrey. The 89-year old Hughes had been taking from 85 to 135 grams of comfrey in tablet form daily for 28 years, at the time of writing, and he says his regular check-ups revealed perfect health. Hughes first discovered the power of comfrey in 1956, and upon moving to Japan, became an advocate for it. His efforts led to a comfrey boom in Japan, the plant being widely used by Japanese farmers because it increased productivity enormously.

Australian man’s stock is legendary for its health. Foster Savage, who takes credit for introducing comfrey into Australia in 1954, fed it to his stock in great quantities (and ate quite a bit of it himself.) He found that milk production increased dramatically in his cows, with the bonus of thick cream. He also fed his pigs as much comfrey as they could eat and the quality of his meat became legendary. His butcher remarked that he had never seen pigs with such healthy livers.

I keep reading how sheep are immune to the toxicity, yet the tests were only done on baby rats…..

If it is good enough for human babies, then….

from indigo-herbs.co.uk
Research has now shown Comfrey to contain the plant chemicals allantoin and rosmarinic acid. Allantoin is able to accelerate cellular mitosis (meaning it speeds up the process of new tissue growth), while rosmarinic acid helps to relieve pain and inflammation. Allantoin is even part of the developmental process of a fetus – the placenta contains this compound as the baby grows, eventually dwindling as full maturity is reached. Also present in breast milk, a small supply of allantoin continues to be supplied to the baby after birth.

Product labels and websites must post this warning, and so I will as well:

Warning: Contains Comfrey. For external use only. Do not use if pregnant or nursing.

Now isn’t THAT strange: it is already naturally occurring  in the placenta, as well as breast milk, and yet, pregnant and nursing mothers are advised to not use it at all?????

We are no longer allowed to sell the tonic with Comfrey, but the Tea can still be used for topical applications. Think about it: would the medical industry approve of something called knitbone? For THOUSANDS OF YEARS??? Pinhole glasses were banned for 25 years in the US by the FDA….I can think of another powerful herb that has also been negatively portrayed by the medical industry and the FDA….and now that it has been legalized, the pharmaceuticals only want us to buy it from them, a synthetic version of course!!!

The FDA has tried to make people afraid to ingest Comfrey. They isolated a few elements, then tested on rats, and said it was unsafe for humans even though humans have used this herb for thousands of years. And yet, the same people that tell us this little plant is dangerous, are the same people selling invasive techniques and deadly pharmaceuticals for their profit, not caring about our safety. Such hypocrites. If you are really concerned, then we suggest you also do a liver flush when using the herb, which we should all be doing any ole way…

It appears that the main ingredient in Comfrey, the Allatoin, that is responsible for the powerful healing, mending, growing, great feeling on the skin, etc, is the ingredient that was isolated and overfed to baby rats, and they say is what causes liver damage and cancer. They do NOT mention the fact that the rats were fed the equivalent of 80 leaves a day for 9 weeks! WOW. Mindblown….

Here is a comment from another website:
Straight shooting from the hip Didi, Australia & the USA are world leaders in banning the ‘good stuff’. In Oz you are allowed to buy borage, as a vegetable in a restuarant, yet it is banned as a herb, it’s ok to eat as food but not as a herb?
Comfrey is often eaten in our home, we add a cut up leaf or two to many dishes, we add it to the mince or stew or meal once we remove the pot from the stove or turn the heat off.

I occasionally drink the Tonic, although not everyday. Not because of fear, I just forget! LOL!!

I hope this report has shed some light on why Comfrey is in the Bone Formula, and why the Bone Formula is in TeaChiya Medicinal Salves and Teas.

Astronomically, this is the first day of Spring. Day and Night are said to be equal, although this has actually changed due to Precession of the Equinox. It might actually happen in February! And it is also said that the Sun moves into Aries. However, in reality, this does not happen until sometime in April. It is said that during the Equinox, the poles of the Sun’s orbit line up with the Galactic Axis and coordinates, and so, there is a great and wonderful Galactic alignment that takes place at this time.

New Moon New Tune!

The New Moon is always magical. Like starting over with a clean slate. When the girls were young, we observed the Hebrew Tradition of Rosh Hashanah, the Birthday of the World. Times have changed, the Girls are grown and have moved on. I have moved on as well. During this New Moon, I am making some Huge Changes! Kinda scary. Truly letting go of what no longer serves me: spiritually, energetically, traditionally, culturally, etc. Taking actions that will lead me to expressing my Authentic Self. It feels like I am still living to perfect the Woman that I was 28 years ago.

28 years ago, I was deep into my first Saturn Return Experience. It is a miracle that I survived. I changed my name during that time. It wasn’t really a change in meaning or vibration. Just a different frequency. Back then, I moved from Greek to Hebrew: from Staci Alison to Tchiya Amet. Both mean Rise Again Truth, which is the name of my first cd: Rise Again Truth. I wanted to honor my parents, so I simply translated into Hebrew.

Back in 2006, my first trip to Mexico was with Don Miguel da la Ruiz, the Master that wrote the Four Agreements for us. I later went on to write a song about them in Spanish:

During my time with him, I explained that although I really like my name, it feels like I am always dying and starting over and over, never really moving forward, continuous regeneration also means continuous death of something. He suggested that I drop the tchiya, and go by my middle name. At the time I thought, sounds perfect, but I had just changed my name to Tchiya 10 years prior, and had all of these reasons why I could ot. I tried a few times over the years to go by Amet, but it did not feel right.

Now, it has been an entire Saturn cycle of Tchiya and frankly, it feels like it does when your old car just won’t run anymore. As a friend once told me, “you can’t beat a dead horse.” This is how my life feels at the moment. I can keep going trying to patch up all the little things that are not coming together the way I want them to, OR, I can just up level, shift vibration and frequency and get into the flow, not necessarily going along with whatever, but fine-tuning with accuracy and precision, the vibration at which I truly desire to live out the rest of my life. And it certainly does not include fixing the life that i have been living for the past 28 years, because everything has changed since that moment in time.

Which brings me to The Music. It has been an excellent journey. However that journey has expanded and can no longer continue the way that it once was. Reggae has been wonderful for my consciousness, awakening, health, abundance, prosperity, even love. However, all of that has expanded too, and can no longer be contained or confined. So, although I will continue to write, sing, compose and enjoy reggae Music, I am no longer called to live at the standards of the Reggae Music Industry or even the Community. That vibration is now part of my past.  In fact, has been that way for while now, I just did not know how to move forward, or where. The Future and the Present  is ALL PURE LIGHT.

You may have noticed my music has moved into the genre of Devotional World Music. This features Original Roots Reggae of course,  Reggae Fusion Jazz,. It also includes Ancient African Adorations, which consists of Kemetic (Ancient Egyptian) Chanting and Singing, Medicine Wheel Music/Native Reggae, even Live Cosmic Jazz Improv.

Speaking of which, on September 8, I had the excellent fortune of performing Live Cosmic Jazz Improv with SuRa and the Side Pocket Experience. This event takes place every second Saturday of the month at the Silver Room, and I will be there singing and chanting to their live expressions of love and joy. It is pure heaven in sound. If you dig Sun Ra, you will love SuRa!

What about Reggae Wellness? That is going to have to simmer awhile. Things were out of alignment with who I am today in this moment. That must be the priority. So, the first step is getting my practice in order. The renovations at the apartment building will begin soon, and so during this New Moon Phase, I will be working on the website for the LIGHT BEING WELLNESS CENTER AND WELLNESS PRODUCTS. KemeTones,org. HeruScopes.com, and tchiya.com will all be upgraded as well.

The final announcement for this New Moon is My Name. Yes, that is changing too. The vibration of the music has changed because I have changed so much, thanks to these past 4 years of intense healing, much letting go, lots of meditation and self care, etc. and it is time for my name to reflect this , and stop projecting the old energy and having the same experiences over and over again. Plus, I did not really change the vibration of my name, so it has been the same since birth. I will keep Tchiya Amet as the BRAND for my Reggae Music, and from henceforth, shall be known as Arit Neter S Mery Maati which means,

You can just call me Arit! LOL!!

This announcement/moved is in alignment with my upcoming trip to Kemet in October, for a Musical Initiation. One of the highlights will  a visit to the Temple of Abu Simel, in Aswan, when the light shines on a statue of Ramses for 22 minutes. My research tells me that this is the actual date of the Equinox, instead of in September. And, the initiation will include offering a Concert on the Nile. You can learn more here:

If this is too much for you, or too weird, no worries, I will always answer to Tchiya, just as I still answer to my childhood name. Just wanted to let you know in case you are wondering…..LOL!!!

Check out the HeruScopes Analysis for the New Moon, and you will see how my life mirror this report.
