  • The weekly energy is composed of the Biblical Parasha energy and the number of the week of the year and some other sections and components as well. This will be explained below.

    This week is the 9th week of the year. "Behave Properly, Fight Darkness with Light."

    How does the week start on Wednesday night and not Saturday Night? This is a bit confusing for some people since in the year 5775 the weeks start Wednesday night.

    The Stormy Petrel is saying / praising, "Light is sown for the Righteous, and joy for the straight - hearted." Psalm 97:11

    Rabbi Yossi teaches, "The property of your fellow should be as precious to you as your own. Perfect Yourself for the Study of Torah for Torah Study is not an inheritance for you. Do all your deeds for the sake of Heaven. "

    Psalm 97:11 in Hebrew אור זרע לצדיק ולישרי-לב שמחה

    Transliteration: Ohr Tzaruah LaTzadik Weleyasharai Lev Simcha.

    chanoch's Commentary

    The Hebrew can be translated in different ways. Tzaruah is a seed not necessarily sown. Yasharai also has the meaning of direct as well as straight. The meaning of Rabbi Yossi's teaching is also quite meaningful. "Love your neighbor as yourself" includes their property as well since Kabbalah teaches that our souls enter into the property of each human being animals, plants, and inanimate objects. Also, realize that the consciousness one has when one does an action is what defines if the action is selfish or positive.

  • This will be the energy of the parasha Vayetze

    Here is a brief introduction to the energy of Vayetze

    Vayetze 5775

    The Name of this Parasha is Vayetze and its usual translation is “went out.” The immediate question is who went out from where to where? All 3 questions are answered in the first verse. Yaakov went out from Beer Sheva towards Haran. The word / Name Beer Sheva is a code word for the physical world according to the Zohar. The word Charan has an additional Hey as the last letter of this world. This Hey is considered in the Hebrew grammar rules to be an indication of direction. It also changes the gematria of the word. Without the Hey the gematria is 258; with the Hey the gematria is 263. The number 258 is the same gematria as the Hebrew word that translates as “utterly destroyed.” With the change to 263 the word becomes Geresh - which translates as “to study” or “to learn.” This is a significant change for us to realize the meaning of the code word Haran.

    The Parasha on its simple story level teaches us about the 11 sons of Jacob and the birth of his daughter Dinah. In Kabbalah we learn that the 11 sons are almost all of Jacob's sons and almost all of the control of the Zodiac signs are given in this one Parasha. This is a significant teaching in our lives and the lives of humankind. To be able to control the Astrological Influences is quite meaningful. How is this done? How does one control the Astrological Influences?

    The Kabbalah teaches that the control of the Astrological Influences is actually accomplished through the manipulation of the genetic laws and the ultimate teaching of controlling the physical DNA through the manipulation of the three worlds of Nekudim – spots or dots; Akudim – Speckles; and Berudim – flecks.

    Please note that the world of dots Nekudim is similar to the word for the vowels of the Hebrew Letters. I have never seen this described by the Kabbalists as being the same level of consciousness so I hesitate to say so. It is for each of you to contemplate and determine for yourselves.

    These three code words relate to the three higher worlds of the 4 worlds. In my opinion there is a relationship between these 3 code words and the 4 chemicals that science has determined to be the base of DNA. In the words of science DNA is composed of 4 chemicals referred to as ATCG. In my opinion these Kabbalistic code words relate to the first three proteins that science codes as ATC, while the fourth chemical is called G. G represents the physical world and is called Guanine. The A stands for Adenine; the T stands for Thymine; the C stands for Cytosine. Eventually science vocabulary will catch up to the teachings of the Kabbalah and science will understand why these levels of chemicals relate to the spiritual worlds. This is not yet understood by the scientists to my knowledge.

    Learning how to change DNA of physical animals is a useful tool for mankind to learn. This has always been known by the Kabbalists yet it took Rabbi Ashlag in the 20th Century to be given permission to reveal this significant technology.

    The Kabbalists have taught us how to utilize the DNA of the Hebrew Letters to overcome the astrological influences, while the teachings of the Kabbalah has taught the people of the 20th Century to utilize the chemistry of DNA to make the animals become whatever the human beings desire the animal to become.

    Why is this possible? Why is this technology being revealed in the 20th and 21st Centuries? In my opinion it is being taught and revealed today to show us the fallacy of our perceptions. We can change whatever we want including death. We just have to decide that we want it changed. To remove death from the world we need to decide that we no longer want death to remain in the world. It is all about consciousness. That is the lesson being taught by science as it realizes that we can change all aspects of DNA.

    The Zohar reveals one additional requirement to change DNA that has not yet been revealed by Science. Here is what the Zohar describes as it relates to laughter:

    “The Creator recognizes that in David’s kingdom on earth, truth often expresses itself in humorous form. Laughter denotes the Left Column energy of receiving, for laughter arouses immediate and direct pleasure. The name Isaac, the patriarch and father of Jacob, also means laughter. We access the wisdom of Isaac through these verses, thereby strengthening our trust in The Creator and bringing true happiness and laughter into our life. In addition, we gain strength to laugh in the face of hardship. Laughter during spiritual tests ensures that hardships pass quickly and easily. We regain control of our own happiness, rather than surrendering to external circumstances.”

    In my opinion, The Zohar is explaining to us that by laughing in the face of death and hardship is the method we need to utilize to transform the world to no longer accept the illusion that death occurs in our physical world. It does not. We need to realize it – laugh at death and thereby remove death from the world!

    Actually this is an extension of the Kabbalistic teaching to remain “happy” during the month of Tammuz to prevent the disease Cancer. Remember it is not Cancer that causes death; it is the judgments of the upper academy that pronounces the judgment that it is time for someone to leave the world. We call that death. Keep doing good deeds and Mitzvot and watch the diseases of the world like Cancer be concealed and cured. Of course, most of the world will perceive this as the benefits of man's medical technology. These people do not yet recognize the concealed hand of the Creator behind the technology developed by Mankind. When man realizes that the Creator is the cause and not Mankind death will become removed from the World! All it takes is TRUE APPRECIATION. Do you truly appreciate the Creator yet?

    Have a beautiful Shabbat!

  • This section will add some Hebrew astrological information about the day when appropriate.

    Western astrology looks at the heavens and "reads" the effect of the physical movements of the stars, planets, and other items in the sky. Hebrew Astrology goes to the essence and asks why do these items move the way they do. When one asks this question of "Why" one is able to go to the inner essence of a thing and make changes at the spiritual DNA of an item. This is how the phrase "The stars impel but do not compel" can be achieved.

  • This section is composed of the number of the day of the year, the number of the day of the month, and the number of the day of the week, as well as a relationship to certain animals and other information that will be helpful for that day's energy.

    Day Number of Year: 60 = ס: The number 60 is the gematria of the letter Sameck. This letter means support. This day of Rosh Chodesh Kislev is that kind of support energy. Use the energy of Rosh Chodesh of the month of miracles to control all of the miracles that potentially happen during the next 10 months.

    Day Number of month: 30 is the gematria of the letter Lamed which relates to teaching. See the energy of the 60th day of the year. It is similar energy and reinforces this same energy.

    To help you understand the essence of Rosh Chodesh we need to relate to the movement of the Sefirot relative to each other and more importantly the idea of a world being a garment for a more internal world. In the frame of the physical aspect of the human being the metaphor is as follows:

    The outer level is clothing.

    Followed by hair which aspects of both the body, the net inner level, and the clothing fibers.

    Inside the body we have three levels of components: skin followed by ligaments and muscles followed by organs, followed by the skeleton or bones.

    In the frame of the Sefirot and Worlds the outer most world is the physical. This is followed more internally by the Klipot which are not visible to us. This is followed more internally by the world of our bodies or the Malchut. Next moving internally- the level / world is the world of Yetzirah which the world of emotions. Next comes the world of Mind or Intellect. Then the world of spirituality, until we reach the most internal aspect of the Keter which is called Essence.

    Pasook 1. from the Zohar Sulam Commentary on Parasha Vayetzei

    וַיֵּצֵא יַעֲקֹב מִבְּאֵר שָׁבַע וַיֵּלֶךְ חָרָנָה. ר' חִיָּיא פְּתַח וַאֲמַר, וְזָרַח הַשֶּׁמֶשׁ וּבָא הַשֶּׁמֶשׁ וְאֶל מְקוֹמוֹ שׁוֹאֵף זוֹרֵחַ הוּא שָׁם, הַאי קְרָא אוֹקְמוּהָ. אֲבָל וְזָרַח הַשֶּׁמֶשׁ, דָּא יַעֲקֹב, כַּד הֲוָה בִּבְאֵר שָׁבַע. וּבָא הַשֶּׁמֶשׁ, כַּד אֲזַל לְחָרָן, דִּכְתִיב וַיָּלֶן שָׁם כִּי בָא הַשֶּׁמֶשׁ. וְאֶל מְקוֹמוֹ שׁוֹאֵף זוֹרֵחַ, דִּכְתִיב וַיִּשְׁכַּב בַּמָּקוֹם הַהוּא.


    Vayetzei ya'akov mibbe'er shava vayelech charanah. R chiyai petach va'amar, vezarach hashemesh uva hashemesh ve'el mekomo sho'ef zoreach hu sham, ha kera okemuha. Aval vezarach hashemesh, da ya'akov, kad havah biv'er shava. Uva hashemesh, kad azal lecharan, dichtiv vayalen sham ki va hashemesh. Ve'el mekomo sho'ef zoreach, dichtiv vayishkav bammakom hahu.

    English Translation

    "And Jacob went out from Beer-Sheva, and went toward Charan" (Bereshit 28:10). Rabbi Chiya opened the discussion with the verse, "The sun also rises, and the sun goes down, and hastens to its place where it rises again" (Kohelet 1:5). This verse has been explained. The phrase, "The sun also rises," refers to Jacob, WHO IS ZEIR ANPIN, when he was in Beer-Sheva, WHICH IS BINAH. The phrase, "And the sun goes down," refers to Jacob when he went to Charan, THE NUKVA OF ZEIR ANPIN, as it is written, "And tarried there all night, for the sun was set" (Beresheet 28:11). The passage, "And hastens to its place where it rises again," is similar to the verse, "And lay down in that place to sleep" (Ibid. 11). THIS REFERS TO THE NUKVA, CALLED 'PLACE', WHERE THE SUN HASTENS TO SHINE.

    chanoch's Commentary

    Jacob is a chariot for Zeir Anpin which is also called Tiferet. As such he is the channel between Binah and Malchut. This represents the flow of energy between the Mother and the Children. This is truly the meaning behind the power of Jacob and our need to connect to this essence.
