|Week of January 9, 2010 Shabbat Va'era Rosh Chodesh Shvat, 5770|
There are 16 spaces in the Parasha of Va'Era. Va'era means appeared actually will appear. One question that must be answered is Why the 10 plagues are split 7 in this weeks Parasha and 3 in the week of Bo which we will read next week.
The answer relates to the upper worlds of Keter, Chochma, and Binah which represent a system of unity and our lower 7 Sephirot which represent another system of unity which includes the possibility of seperation.
This is more clearly understood by understanding that 16 is normally written Tet Zion. This is actually not the normal pattern which should be Yood Vav. Since Yood Vav are 2 Letters used in the Tetragramaton, out of respect, we write the number 16 as Tet Zion. This is 9+7 which = 16. 7 represents the lower sefirot as well as the idea of the Vav and Hey in the Tetragrammaton. In essence 7 represents the spiritual and the physical worlds in unity or it can be the physical world by itself. It depends on the consciousness. When it comes to the impure system the seven is always in separation.
That is why the 9 is part of this hint. The nine represents the Sefirah of Yesod which is the channel from the Sefirot above to the physical below. The concept of a channel is part of the flow of cleansing power to the phsyical world. This is what the plagues are about. Cleansing!
What are we preparing for that we need this cleansing? Look to your individual life today to answer this question. This year the Holiday of Tu B'Shevat falls on the Shabbat Beshalach. It is in Shabbat Beshallach that we have revealed to us the 72 Names of God as well as the 72 Names from the Tzadikim. This is the purpose of the cleansing for the Children of Israel each and every year. Did you keep a written diary of your Cheshbon HaNefesh for last year? Do you remember what you were doing the last time this Parasha was read. Relate this week to your weeks in previous years and you will be able to understand why you are receiving this cleansing in the spiritual world by listening to the Torah portion and do not have to receive this in the physical world. This is one of the many reasons it is recommended to keep a diary of Cheshbon HaNefesh. Try it as it will help you achieve your cleasing each year.
This Parasha has my favorite misunderstood verse within it. It is Chapter 7 Verse 1 which can be translated as follows: HaShem said to Moshe, "See, I have made you Elokim (God of Judgment) over Pharoh and Aaron your Brother will be your Prophet!" It is usually translated differently because the above translation is too hard for people to understand (according to the translators).
How can Moshe be a God (Elokim)? How can Aaron be a Navi (Prophet) of Moshe? It does not make sense, yet it is the beginning verse of the Plague story and therefore has all of the energy within it.
There are 12 words and 50 letters in this vese. The 12 represents the physical world the 50 represents the energy and consciousness of Binah the energy store. This verse can be used as an excellant meditation and "speaking call" (Mantra). Here is an even shorter tool from the same verse. ויאמירינאלואנ
Pronouce it this way. WaYoAhMaiRaiNuAhLaWaAhNu.
Repeat as often as you can as fast as you can. This will help bring you to a state of cleansing meditation. By the way this Kabbalistic technique is to use the first Letter of each word using its root vowel.
Try it with other verses as well. It will connect you to the basic energy of that verse. It is best to know before you do it if you do not have experience with this type of meditation. An example is with the Shema verse connecting you to both healing as well as unity.
שייאיא pronounced SheYoYoAhYoAh. Stop when you mispronounce a letter and start over. Always say the second line of the Shema and the last line of the Ana Bekoach after doing this meditation. Baruch Shem Kevod Malchuto LeOlam Vaed. This acts as a ground for the excess energy (unbalanced energy) that you might have drawn.
Enjoy the Reading!

Kabbalah teaches that 10% of the money you earn belongs to someone else. There is no fulfillment from this money for you. This is why you get traffic tickets and major car repairs and other unexpected expenses. Instead of having those expenses why not donate to www.yeshshem.com where your money will be used to eliminate chaos in the world. Don't believe me but see if it works for you.
Announcement 3: This is a weekly e-letter about the Parasha. Sometimes there will be all of the links - sometimes due to time limitations there will not be all of the links.
One of the main purposes of the Mitzvah of Hearing the Torah on Shabbat Morning is to receive the Metaphysical Energy we will need during the next week. Please strive to hear the Torah Reading each week for this benefit.
