|Week of January 16, 2010 Shabbat Bo Shvat 8, 5770|
The Name of the Parasha is Bo spelled Beth Aleph. When a word in Hebrew follows the order of the Aleph Bet it represents Blessings from above.This is called Mercy. When the order of the letters is reversed in the word it represents the opposite called Returning LIght. This is called judgment. The cause is actions from Man in the Physical world.We learn from this that the message in this name is connected to judgment and human actions.
This week you will need to do actions to bring your Blessings. What kind of actions we shall see!
There are 14 spaces in this weeks Parasha which is an indication of Manifestation. Making something happen. What is it we are to make happen? The essence of this weeks energy is Trust.
The last 3 plagues all relate to Trust. What comes after a Locusts swarm? Your trust that HaShem will provide you with food until the next season. What comes after the Plague of darkness? Trust that the Light will return - the sun will come up tomorrow as the song says. What comes after the slaying of the first born? Trust that they will be reincarnated!
Let us understand what does trust mean. The Hebrew word is Bitachon. It is usually discussed in the same context as the Hebrew word Emunah and the Aramaic word Vaday. Vaday is usually translated as certainty. Emunah is usually translated as faith or belief. Bitachon usually is translated as trust. Yet all 3 of these words refer to levels of consciousness. The lowest is Emunah because belief implies a level of doubt. The middle level is Bitachon because trust can be based on a test to prove trust or it can be based on certainty that the trust is well deserved. Or trust can be based on the belief that it is well deserved without truly knowing. One can give Trust, and later find one is betrayed or one can give trust and later learn that it is correct to do so. We do this with children as part of their maturation. Certainty is the highest level and represents complete connection to this energy that what i anticipate happening will happen. Things like the return of prophecy, the Mashiach, the resurrection of the dead, and other items that take certainty in the truth of HaShem's existence.
One of the tools of Kabbalah is to use the Hebrew lettes in the spelling of words and the understanding that a word in Hebrew is a potential manifestation of that energy that is the meaning of the word. An example is the the word Shalom which means peace, completion or perfection. By meditating on that word one connects to the energy of Peace, completion, and perfection. A higher/stronger level of this tool is to integgrate these letters into the letters of your name.
We at yeshshem will provide you with a integrated picture of the word Vaday with your name. Here is an example of this tool for the name Tamar. We request a donation but will provide this tool for anyone who wants it. By following the instructions on this tool one will strengthen your connection to the ultimate tool of Kabbalah called Certainty which connects to the name of God called Ehyeh or Aleph Hay Yood Hay.

Please take a look at Chapter 12 Verse 51 from this weeks Parasha. It is an unusual verse in that within the scroll it appears to be set off - marked by the spaces before and after the verse. While this is not completely unique it is unusual. The translation of this verse is "It happened on that very day: HaShem took the Children of Israel out of the Land of Egypt, in their "Tzevotam (legions)".
The word Tzevotam comes from the shoresh Tzadi Bet Aleph. This shoresh has the following meanings: War or army; Public Service; Temple duty; fixed period of service; to congregate; or to be inducted (taken into a group like a recruit is inducted into the army).
The verse itself seems out of context with what comes before and what comes after. It seems unique and yet it is totally unnecessary for us to know for the purpose of the story. So what is it telling us. What spiritual law does it reveal? I will leave you to answer that question for yourself! I would like to point out to you that the last word Tzevotam only appears twice in the Tanach with this spelling. Once in Chapter 6 of Exodus and once in this location.
When we begin to start a Kabbalistic analysis of this verse we discover 13 words and 50 Letters. 13 relates to unity and 50 relates to the 50 gates of wisdom. Finally the word Tzevotam can be pulled apart and permuted to spell 3 other words. The letter Tzadi which is a word unto itself. The word Bo (the name of this Parasha) which means Come and the Zohar explains that HaShem was saying to Moshe, Come with me to the negative side and i will assist you in destroying evil. and the last two letters spell the word Tam which means complete or perfect and in the Torah usually refers to Tzadikim like Abraham; Noach; and Jacob.
Therefore we can understand this word in different ways and translate as "Completion/Perfection Comes from or to the Tzadik." Let us understand this on a different level.
In our generation we do not have revealed Tzadikim still living with us. I know that is hard to internalize because after all we - the childen of Israel - have always had Tzadikim to help us; assist us; and show us the path. Yet in our generation we no longer have this tool.
So what do we do? We still have Concealed Tzadikim so we know that the world will continue and that the Mashiach will come; the ingathering of the exiles will take place; and the Resurrection of the dead will take place. Yet to make each of these things happen takes our collective conscientiousness to request that these things happen.
Tzadikim throughout the generations have not died. They still can act as the Tzadikim of this generation. In fact, they want us to utilize their services as Tzadikim so that they can help us. By studying their words and following their teachings we strengthen our connection to them and through this connection we strengthen our individual and collective process to bring the redemption TODAY!
Prior to the redemption from Egypt the leaders of the people were Tzadikim yet they committed the "Sin of the Spies" and we followed them and caused the 40 years of wandering. In this redemption we must ask for help from HaShem ourselves. We must ask for the Mashiach individually and collectively. We must do this not by following our leaders (who the Zohar tells us have soul roots from the Erev Rav and desire separation and not unification) BUT by getting close enough to HaShem to KNOW what the message from Hashem is saying intuitively. This can only come through your personal connection to the ZOHAR and your personal connection to the meditations using the Hebrew Letters like the Ana Bekoach and the 72 Names of Hashem and the 72 Names from the Tzadikim. There are charts available on line for these on our website at www.yeshshem.com.
The tool mentioned above will assist you to strenghten your connection to these other tools.
Please, consider what the Kabbalists recommend.
1. Hear the Torah reading every Shabbsat;
2. Say, Sing, or Scan the Ana Bekoach every day at least once.
3. Sing the 13 Attributes of Mercy every day.
4. Say the Shema Israel twice a day.
5. Look at the 72 Names of the Tzadikim and the 72 Names of God at least once a day.6. Ask for the coming of Mashiach every day and ask that he come TODAY.
7. Make your visual / meditative connection to haShem every day. This means look at the Tikune HaNefesh at a minumum at least one per day.
8. Read sections from the Prophets and Psalms or other portions of the Tanach. This is the first step in the process call study of the Torah.
The above 8 steps can be done in as little as 15 minutes a day or less. They can also take hours. It is up to you as to how long you want your individual connection to be.
Please do this and you will see the reduction of chaos in your life in 6 months. Please do it for yourself and do it to help others like me. We can not do this alone. We need you! We all have to contribute to the "bringing of Mashiach". Will you start? For me, For your family, for yourself; For the human race. The alternative to you helping our world is the worst prophecies in the Tanach will manifest in our lives. Please do not let this happen. Make this small change in your life!
