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,

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.

We are actually in the winding down phase of this amazing time of Portal Openings and  Eclipses. Has been really exciting and revealing. Empowering and Illuminating.

As most of these portals begin their closing phases, ie, go direct, it will feel the way it does at the end of Summer, with so many activities and special events, trying to get as much in before school starts and the weather changes. Well, that is how the intensity is showing up for us now. If you were being tested or receiving lots of “downloads” before, expect even more during these final days. Again, this does not necessarily mean “bad stuff” will happen. It means that now you have been through all of that training, your response will improve.When the shit hits the fan, you will rise higher, and feel lighter. Just flip on the TRUST switch and exhale. You have already let go of so much, you got this. By the end of August, things will have eased up a bit, providing for a period of smooth sailing until the next adversity appears to teach you another lesson. The Journey IS The Destination: ENLIGHTENMENT. 

Elsewhere, where things continue to move forward….

Sesheta HetHeru Aspolia (Moon and Venus in Sidereal Virgo)
Writing about the Beauty in Life is like planting seeds of Beauty in the Garden of Your Life. Focus on what you want, not what you don’t want. Remember the power of the Goddess of Beauty, to tame her ego and remember her true nature, by listening to the Wisdom of the Cosmic Mind, instead of the Individual Mind. 

Once these Rx phases have closed, will investigate the Paths of Djehuty again. 

Truly Grateful and Enjoying Fully these Cosmic Sound Interpretations of the Movements of the Cosmic Forces, the perfect blend of HeruScopes, KemeTones and Ancient African Adorations, all bundled up in episodes from Good Rising TV. Finding ways to remain in alignment with the Neters is one of my passions. 

Here is the video of new #DevotionalWorldMusic #WorldDevotionalMusic #AncientAfricanAdorations BE ENLIGHTENED DUA SEKHMET

Retrograde Winds Down

It takes great courage to Trust, to Surrender to Divine Will, To Let Go of Attachments.  To Be Enlightened. We can use the Energy of Sekhmet, The Life Force Energy,  and the Will of hetHeru, The Power of the Life Force Energy to do this work. We absolutely MUST learn to MASTER these Cosmic Forces, not just know about them study them worship them, invoke them align with them, We must BECOME THEM.

One of my Beloved Teachers and Spiritual Guides has offered me much insight regarding the upcoming journey to Kemet for a Musical Initiation. Seba Dja, reminds me that any and all tools of spirituality, like oracles, tarot, divinations, readings, including Astrology, should never become a replacement for trusting one’s insight or Divine Intuition. That some people depend on tools like these and never learn to know or trust themselves. I find them to be very useful in maintaining order and awareness, like a natural energy GPS. I have dressed according to the planetary color of the Day, for decades, even choosing which foods to eat based on their color. I also use HoraWatch, an app that lets us know which planets/Cosmic Forces/Hindu gods and goddess are in exaltation and should be propitiated. She reminds me that even these tools must be let go of eventually. Even the Teachings! I only added that they are most useful and make life fun until one is ready to let go….

Anyway, in addition to learning more about being a Chantress in (Ancient/NOW) Kemet, during the pilgrimage in October,  we will also investigate if, how and why, the Ancient People of Kemet used Astrology system, rather than only knowing of the Greek perspective and uses. HeruScopes uses Kemetic Archetypes and Mythology, whereas Western Astrology only takes the Greek Mtths into account. Same with KemeTones and Acutonics. If there is a more direct source or approach, I want to find it. Hetep. 

Missing Misty Upham

Miisty Upham

Misty said to me “Dad, every time a rape victim comes forward to get justice they become the cause of the matter!” This was not the first time Misty was raped and harassed by an Executive/Producer/Director/Actor etc. And you know who you are!

She is wearing a Teal Blue Dress. Teal is the color for Sexual Assault Awareness. I don’t need to rewrite what has already been written. I have done what I do best, wrote a song about something that really touches my heart.  So that something positive can be done with the pain. But before you hear the song, read more about Missing Misty Upham.

https://www.hollywoodlanews.com/misty-upham-raped-2013-golden-globes/

Ellen Page today put out a statement about the humiliation she suffered at the hands of director Brett Ratner. Among the things she mentioned within her statement is the alleged rape of Misty Upham that her father Charles Upham posted about on Facebook on October 15.”

Here is his post:

The recent backlash with regard to Harvey Weinstein’s sexual allegations is blowing up like a NAPA Valley firestorm leaving a trail of victims in its wake. The smoke of this scandal can be seen through out the entertainment industry as many Hollywood insiders release a collective gasp. (Like you didn’t know this was going on!) The only thing bigger than the Weinstein media apocalypse is the hypocrisy that existed since the 1890’s when the casting couch, I mean movie camera was invented. Sure you now have found a sexual harassment poster boy in Weinstein that we can martyr to will ease the conscience of high society for a while. But this is not an isolated incident! This is an institutional problem that exists in in many Organizations and Corporate America including Religious Orders, Law Enforcement, Politics, Education, Federal, State and local Governments. The victims are not just women; they include men, elderly, mentally ill, children (male and female) of all races and even some animals.

My daughter, Misty Upham, was a victim of rape by a Weinstein Executive in 2013 at the Golden Globe Awards. The rapist forced her into the men’s room and had his way while other men in formal wear cheered him on as if he were chugging a beer in a contest. As Misty made the walk of shame back to the event, the Exec was given high fives, bragging rights and another notch in his Weinstein Co. belt. What should have been an auspicious occasion for Misty turned into a nightmare of pain, humiliation, fear and anxiety? Her mom and I pleaded with her to press charges since she still has the torn green dress she wore (Photo Above) with the DNA all over it. Misty was afraid to pursue charges because she knew Harvey Weinstein could protect his constituency and ruin her existence. Misty’s experience with Harvey Weinstein left her with the impression that he was a powerful man with many influential connections and could make people disappear. Once while riding in a limo with Quentin Tarantino, Harvey Weinstein and his assistant, somewhere between Salt Lake City and Park City, Utah, the assistant interrupted Weinstein and Tarantino’s conversation in a matter of urgent business; at which point Harvey Weinstein ordered the driver to stop and subsequently kicked his assistant out of the car in the middle of no where during a snow storm amidst subzero temperatures. Misty commented, “What if he freezes to death?” Weinstein retorted “ Somebody will come along and pick him up!” How could anyone expect a sincere investigation when the Weinstein’s company commander and chief is also a perpetrator? Misty said to me “Dad, every time a rape victim comes forward to get justice they become the cause of the matter!” This was not the first time Misty was raped and harassed by an Executive/Producer/Director/Actor etc. And you know who you are!

How many times have you heard the defense say things like: “She slept around with everyone.” or “She was smiling and flirting while being accosted!” or “She was dressed like a slut!” and “She knew what she was getting into but left with him anyway!” All of a sudden the rape victim become the blame in everyone’s eyes. This has been the trend now amongst Police Officers, Judges, Defenders even Prosecutors and witnesses alike. The rapist is not just a man thing either; this exercise of empowerment exists among every gender, ethnicity, age, sexual orientation and social class. The characteristic traits of these criminals are usually recognizable from childhood: A Bully, Socially Enabled, Possesses a Sense of Entitlement and Justified by partisan social circles. Sounds a lot like MANIFEST DESTINY (Google It). In many cases the crime becomes a matter of opinion and the rapist becomes the victim. It is no surprise that many rape victims stay silent. Most victims don’t report such crimes because they believe nothing will be done.

In the course of time the majority of the genders has developed a natural affection for the opposite sex or the same sex. In the ritual of courtship you may find yourself attending to your esthetic qualities in order to attract you mate. If this includes dressing provocatively, wearing makeup, flirting or even participating in a conversation that could lead to consummation. So what! That’s what people do! But nowhere in that ritual has the implied meaning been embedded that rape is ok. No means no! People are looking for a lasting relationship that is founded in love, trust and affection. Do you think a woman or her parents would want to have a relationship and have children with a person who raped her? Or would any parent brag on the fact that their child was best rapist in the family?

If Harvey Weinstein has become the poster boy of Sexual Harassment among the rich and powerful then Native American Women should exemplify the most disregarded rape victims in the Americas. According to the Violence Against Women Act of 1994 (VAWA) Indigenous Women have the highest rates of uninvestigated violent sex and abuse crimes among women per capita. Federal government studies have consistently shown that American Indian women experience much higher levels of sexual violence than other women in the U.S. Data gathered by the U.S. Department of Justice indicates that Native American and Alaskan Native women are more than 2.5 times more likely to be raped or sexually assaulted than women in the USA in general. First Nations women in Canada and Native American women in Border States like Minnesota and North Dakota have become the targets of commercial sex trade with little or no intervention from law enforcement. An intrinsic effort on the part of victims and advocacy groups was necessary to raise awareness so that Judicial, Legislative bodies and Politicians would be shamed into action on the behalf of the Native communities.

I know there are many people that will turn a blind eye, wallow in apathy or even entertain the thought of joining the ranks of sex abusers. Before you do I hope you recognize the emotional harm, life long pain and humiliation that these type of crimes bring to their victims; before you have to learn your lesson by experiencing the same type of abuse in some prison cell yourself.

Now listen to the song Missing Misty Upham by Tchiya Amet

“My name is Misty Upham (age 12), and someday you will know that name as the best living Native American actress.”

…but 20 years later, with her star on the rise after having acted in films with the likes of Meryl Streep, Julia Roberts, and Benicio Del Toro…and receiving an Independent Spirit Award nomination in 2008 for Best Supporting Actress (“Frozen River”)…her lifeless body was discovered at the end of a ravine in Washington State in 2014. She had battled depression and alcoholism in recent years, but what has remained puzzling is that her case has never been solved. Her father, Charles Upham, seeks to find answers in a documentary he’s producing and raising money for called “11 Days: The Search For Misty Upham”. #ColorYourVision


RepostBy @terraincognitamedia:
“TW: rape.
.
This is Misty Upham. She was a promising young Native American starlet who was allegedly raped at the 2013 golden globe awards by an executive from an infamous distribution company in the men’s bathroom, WHILE A GROUP OF MEN CHEERED HER RAPIST ON. She never came forward for fear of her career and her life. About a year later she went missing and was later found dead. It was ruled a suicide, even though the autopsy stated that the cause of death was several blunt force trauma injuries to her head and torso. Her name was not spoken at the Golden Globes this year, and I think it is important that people know who she is. This picture is from the night she was allegedly raped, she was wearing that green dress. She had the green dress at the time she disappeared. The dress had DNA evidence on it. #goldenglobes#timesup #jezebel#harveyweinstein#quentintarantino #mistyupham#sayhername @oprah #hollywood#weinsteincompany #rapeawareness#rainn

Upham Family’s Shocking Statement: ‘Misty Was Murdered by Two Men’

misty short hair

I am still in shock that the same week that I spoke out/posted about being raped by Neil Tyson,  Misty was missing, and running for her life, because someone found out that she still had that teal blue dress with DNA specimens on it. Perhaps this is why I had to write the song. I know that it was given to me by one of Our Lakota Ancestors.

This was her last tweet….

Here is the video slideshow with the song.

 
It is Good to Share Knowledge and Truth. Even when it is Tragic and Sad.

Aho.
