Solstice Book Release June 2017

27 May

NAMING THE TIME

Book four in the Amunet’s Fables Series of books will be released on Wednesday 21st June 2017, also known as the Sun of The North by the Dogons of Mali West Africa. They are referring to the highest position in the sky that the Sun will reach during the year. This day is also known as the June Solstice as described by the Latin term Sol, meaning Sun and Sistere meaning Stand Still. Taken together this term refers to the Sun appearing to stand still twice a year; in June after the longest day of the year, when it changes direction and the days become shorter and in December after the shortest day of the year, when the Sun again changes direction and the days become longer.

SLOW DOWN OR INTENSIFY YOUR EFFORTS IN THE SUMMER?

It is ironic that the Summer months are the busiest for the guardians of our sustenance  also called farmers, whilst the general population look upon this time as a time to slow down. Indeed it is import to relax and the appearance of the Sun shining brighter and longer in the heavens does remind us to slow down. However this should also be seen as an important time to tend to our projects, which were started during the creative phase of the Winter months, which we added to during the Spring by preparing the environment to receive our gifts. The Summer months should therefore be seen as a time to cultivate the best results possible ready for the harvest during the Autumn.

WHAT LEGACY WILL YOU LEAVE BEHIND?

The title of book four in the Amunet’s Fables Series of books ‘ The Door is Closing“, is a reminder to work hard to shape your reality before it’s too late. Late in the sense of returning to the Ancestral Realms, without having achieved your goals, without even attempting to discover what your destiny is.

Ask yourself this; What does forgiveness mean to me?

Ask yourself this also; Why should I forgive?

Always Remember to forgive yourself…

Be reminded that you are at the centre of your world and you have the gift of FORGIVENESS…

In his article, “Love, Trust and Forgiveness: The New Pattern for Nova Earth,” Steve Beckow tells us that “forgiveness relates to the past, love relates to the present, and trust relates to the future.”

We will discuss these themes further to help us move closer to our self-help transformation goals into wellbeing and to keep our hearts as light as a feather.

AS ABOVE SO BELOW

Now that we have officially entered the summer months, how are you feeling?  The ancients  had a saying “as above, so below”.  The idea being that what happens in the heavens also affects us here on earth.  Scientists are now continuing research into how true this is. Continue reading

Family

Just Sharing…Two Thoughts and Two Questions:

1) Without the extended family, the experience of a nuclear family would be diminished.

2) We stay together as a family when we consult with the wise-minds amongst us (bloodline and kindred spirits).

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.
