Seasonal Events

14 Apr

Welcome To Blue Water Family

Blue Water Family acknowledges each of the Equinox and Solstice transits during the year. We do this in order to remind one and all of the connection between Humanity and Nature.

The Dogon of Mali West Africa, describe the change of season based on the position in the heavens.

A Dogon High Priest seated holding his flail of authority

The Sun of the north refers to the trajectory of the sun’s path, reaching the highest point high in the sky. In the Uk this will give us the longest day of the year, during our Summer Season. The Sun of the middle refers to the trajectory of the sun’s path, reaching the middle position in the heavens. In the UK and everywhere else on earth, this will give us equal day and equal night time hours twice a year, in March and in September, Spring and Autumn respectively. The Sun of the South refers to the trajectory of the Sun’s path, making its shortest journey low in the heavens, from east to west giving us here in the UK the shortest day of the year, during our Winter Season.

In astronomy The zenith is the “highest” point on the celestial sphere.

In astronomy, the meridian is the great circle passing through the celestial poles, the zenith, and the nadir (point directly below the zenith) of an observer’s location.

October New Moon 2018

9 Oct

Amunet's Fables

What’s new and different for you right now? Are you working on an important project or planning an exciting journey? Have you made new friends? Are there changes in your family, either events to celebrate or problems to overcome? What ever is happening right now, is being influenced by what is happening in the heavens.

The rise and fall of water on earth is controlled by the combined gravitational pull of the sun and the moon. During the Full and New moon phase we experience maximum tides. High tides and low tides are at there most extreme. Today is the October New Moon. We know it is there but we can not see it at this time, as it is in the shadow. The spiritual significance of the new moon, is one of new beginnings in all areas of life. We dream in the night with our eyes closed, this…

The Harvest Full Moon 2018

25 Sep
Today is the September full moon representing the completion of a cycle. This moon cycle is also referred to as the harvest moon, it’s the one which is closest to the September Sun of the Middle (also called the equinox), a time to reflect on our achievements and clear the way going forwards. Blue Water Family has been creating events to celebrate the change of season with the London based global family,  for the past 8 years. It would not have been possible without the energy of the well wishers and supporters. We would like to thank all the presenters, authors, performers, musicians, volunteers, photographers, venue managers, the chefs, and a special mention to all the brave vox-pop super stars for making the gatherings so special. Going forwards, the lead consultant is available to assist you with your own seasonal events. Here are a few reminders of all the good times we have had so far.

Happy Sun of The Middle September 2018

23 Sep
It’s about that time again, the second sun of the middle for the year. As we know, this month marks a turning point towards winter (in the northern hemisphere) or summer (in the southern hemisphere). All the seasonal changes remind us to reflect on what has gone before, what we are doing now and what we can look forward to in the future. When we review and consolidate our knowledge and experiences, we are better able to make sense of our emotional connection to the past, the present and the future.

2011 Today in Ethiopia

11 Sep

A REMINDER AND SOME FACTS ABOUT MEASURING TIME

Definition of a day: when earth makes a complete spin on its own axis, we get one day followed by one night. You can check with NASA (The National Aeronautics and Space Administration) or look back in your own memory and perhaps you will agree with me that this measurement of what we call a day, is universal with two caveats and is counted as a 24 hour period. If you are not sure then Relax and learn.

TELLING TIME CLOSER TO THE EQUATOR The first caveat is that there are several nations on the African continent, and in particular the East Africans, who tell the time using a 12 hour clock. The first hour of a new day starts not at one second past 12 midnight, but at 6am the following day at sunrise. This way of telling time is easier for those living in locations where the hours of sunlight during a day, remains almost constant throughout the year.

TELLING TIME CLOSER TO THE POLES Those of us who live in locations further away from the equator, experience fluctuations of sunlight and the further north or south you go, these fluctuations become extreme. For example those living in locations on the equator will experience approximately 12 hours of sunlight all year. Those living at or close to the poles will experience the midnight sun in summer (almost 24 hours of daylight) and the polar night in winter (almost 24 hours of night).

TIME GOING EAST TIME GOING WEST The second caveat to consider is that the imaginary lines of longitude on our globe demarcates time, depending on where you are located on earth. For example, using Cairo in present day Egypt as the centre of the earth, if you travel westward you lose time: the reverse is the case if you travel east.

Definition of a week: when a number of days are grouped together to make a standard measurement, which is repeated ad infinitum, we call this a week. This measurement can be as many or as few days as dictated by the traditions of a particular nation.

Definition of a month: the measurement of the passage of time using the lunar cycle. In this respect, strictly speaking, the Ethiopian calendar is not really 13 months but 12 months plus 5 holy days or 5 days of celebrations.

Definition of a year: when the passing of time is measured using the orbit of the earth making one complete cycle around the sun. There are many different measurements which are referred to as a year, so depending on your culture and traditions you could be a head of the Western calendar or behind it. The measurement of a year is not universal. See a link to a previous post here.  Indeed, every one who is born on earth has their own annual solar return earth day celebrations or not depending on the individuals culture and traditions.

Change is the only constant and measuring our time using two extra terrestrials, plus a third category called ‘stars’, is one explanation of the term As Above So Below! Furthermore, it is widely acknowledged that the first calendar was created by the African nations who lived along the Nile Valley, several millennia ago. It has since been duplicated in part and or modified by successive civilisations, in particular the Greeks and the Romans. Ethiopia is part of the Nile Valley civilisation and the Ethiopian calendar has kept the thirteen month format and is the closest to the original in terms of this fact.

Cepheus on The Rise: In a recent post the final book of fables of 2018 was published as part of the Amunet’s Fables Series: The title is Cepheus on the rise. Cepheus in Greek mythology is the Ethiopian King and the constellation is named after him.  See a link here.

It only remains for us to wish all of of our readers a successful and joyful 2011 and beyond.

WOMEN’S US OPEN 2018 CHANGE IS THE ONLY CONSTANT

9 Sep

 

So there is a new winner of the Women’s US Open Tennis tournament. Well done and congratulations to both players. The funny thing is, in book 6 of the Amunet’s Fables series, there is a short story called ‘Shadows Fighting’ and in this short story there is a character called Naomi… a reminder perhaps, that change is the only constant…in more ways than one… Additionally the author has been known to tap into the the stream of time belonging to the intuitive empaths… perhaps this is yet another example…

Why not have a read of CELESTIAL CREATE YOUR OWN HEAVEN see what you think and do leave a comment to share with others. You are welcome.

Film Maker and Life Coach Nuakai Aru has already reviewed the book and has this to say:

“Celestial – Create Your Own Heaven introduces the reader to a group of fables which cleverly reveals the nuances of cause and effect, breaking family curses, releasing emotions and transformation through strife”

Review of A Modern Day Fable – Towards The Light

7 Sep

 

EXPLORING THE POWER OF EARTHS ENERGY AND THE ENCOUNTERS WE COME FACE TO FACE WITH – WHICH CAN BE AMUSING AND SCARY AT THE SAME TIME

In the video above, we are invited to listen to some comments and reflections, shared by author El Crisis. He is reviewing ‘Towards The Light’ Taken from book 7 ‘Crystalline Towards The Grid’, a collection of four short stories, which acknowledge the power of Earth’s Energy and our own spirituality. Each fable is a reminder that what we do, can cause a chain reaction and in the midst of what ensues, we have choices to make or they will be made for us. As we are reminded in the final moments of the story:

“…and when we no longer want something, having it doesn’t matter any more…”

 

SATURDAY 11th AUGUST THE LAUNCH DAY OF BOOK 7 WAS QUITE SPECTACULAR 

 

Although the moon was new, so invisible to us, it was a super moon, meaning that it came the closest to earth that it can in its orbit. There was also a partial solar eclipse and a meteor shower. The above video reminds us to pay attention to what is happening in the heavens, before there was television, we were encouraged to take a view of the sky and go within to our inner vision: during these times, spirituality was seen as the most important aspect of the person. In various indigenous cultures and traditions this was the case. The further back you go the more so. Great emphasis was therefore placed on being mindful of ones surroundings and mindful of ones thoughts.

WHAT IS THE ULTIMATE MINDFULNESS EXPERIENCE?

The Completion of a Cycle and Cepheus on the Rise

25 Aug

PAY ATTENTION TO THE HEAVENS

NEW BOOK ALERT: CEPHEUS ON THE RISE IS READY HOT OFF THE PRESS. This small book of fables, has been named after one of the northern hemisphere circumpolar constellations. These stars take it in turn, over a cycle of 26,000 years, to position themselves as earth’s guiding light for those who can see it. How do we know this? Our African Ancestors were excellent mathematicians. Their observations led to the creation of the first calendar. This demanded the attention of serious scholars most of whom were priests and priestesses.

 

LET’S LOOK AT OUR ATTENTION SPAN TODAY

As we know and as it has been said, time keeps on ticking into the future and as it does, our attention span has slowly declined apparently from 12 seconds to 8. Meanwhile studies have found that on average, a goldfish can concentrate for 9 seconds! This is ofcourse contested by the nay sayers. However regardless of the figures look around for yourselves, and see where we are heading.  Amunet’s Fables have been written to address some of the concerns of our fast-paced living. The style and content are accessible to both accomplished as well as reluctant readers. If you sit quietly and undisturbed, depending on the speed at which you read, it is very possible to complete each book in about half an hour. Hopefully you will learn something about yourself, humanity and the universe and choose to re-read each story time without number. Apparently they are great at parties, at events and presentations and make good presents for all occasions too. Click on the link below for your hot off the press copy.

The Launch Day Special Offer is available for 24 hours only

THE COMPLETION OF A CYCLE

In keeping with marking time the indigenous way, today is a full moon. In astrology this phase represents the completion of a cycle, which was here before we were born and will continue after we return to the ancestral realm. Today the Amunet’s Fables series for 2018 has also completed a cycle. Cepheus On The Rise is the newest addition to the series. In mythology this constellation represents the Ethiopian king. The four short stories in this edition very much locates the man of African heritage at the centre of each narrative. You are invited to Invest a very small amount of time on being mindful. After you have read the book, do leave a comment, every one helps to spread the word.

 

AMUNET’S FABLES THE COLLECTION

There are now 8 books composed of a collection of short stories, flash fiction and poems. For now this will do. A special thank you to the reviewers. Please continue to add your thoughts on Amazon and buy the books whilst they are still available.See What Other Readers Are Saying

Crystalline Towards The Grid New Book Release On A Super New Moon

10 Aug

 

Crystalline Towards The Grid is the 7th instalment in The Amunet’s Fables series of books.

Read a snippet here: The Crystalline grid describes the location of some of the most powerful ley-lines which can be identified across planet earth. Ley-lines are lines which link locations of spiritual significance, including landforms as well as man-made structures. The lines closely follow the boundaries of earth’s tectonic plates. When all the lines are connected earth resembles a huge diamond. The Crystalline grid refers to patterns formed by the ley-lines on ‘Aye’ – the Yoruba name for Mother Earth.

Just as the body is said to have energy centres and meridian lines called chakras, so too is this principle relatable to earth. There are three differences between the intersections of the ley-lines. One set of locations are said to be positive portals and are mostly identified by ancient man-made and natural monuments, many of which are said to be in alignment with celestial activity. Another set of locations Read more here 

There are Three other events taking place on 11th August 2018

1) A Super New Moon happens when the moon phase is invisible and comes closest to the earth, also called perigee.

2) A Partial Solar Eclipse happens when the Moon comes between the Sun and Earth, but the Moon only partially covers the Sun’s disk.

3) Presides Meteror Shower like all meteor showers, happens around the same time every year. Meteor showers are a celestial event also referred to as shooting stars.

 

Why not do some research to see if any of the above celestial events will be visible in your region. As above so below. If you are able to experience any of these heavenly treats go for it. Then make some more time for yourself and relax with a book of fables. You now have 7 to choose from the Amunet’s Fables Series, plus an African Ancestral Day Special edition.

Please leave a review on Amazon and give each book as many stars as you like.
