When one prognosticates about the future there is a traditional statement that needs to be made in order to protect the prognosticator and the people who read or hear about his statements. The traditional statement which i am making at this time is: I am not a Prophet nor am I the Son of a Prophet. One may now feel safe in reading the balance of this page.Many times i am asked by students and friends: What will the future be? What will tomorrow bring?. I usually answer "We will all return to the Endless World (Ayn Sof). The only question is will the process be shorter for you due to your restrictions or longer do to your negative actions that create the necessity of cleansing through pain and suffering (chaos)?".
Yet each year i analyze the year ahead as the Kabbalists have taught us to do. The reason they have given us this tool is not to satisfy our curiousity about the future. It is to learn about the essence of the energies that we will see during the year so that we can be prepared to restrict our reactive natures and also to learn how to enhance the positive aspects of the year.
The Kabbalists use the directive by Rabbi Bag Bag written in Pirkei Avot in order to understand the inner essence of the next year. Rabbi Bag Bag said " Turn it! Turn it! For everything is in it!". The Kabbalists undersand this to mean Permutate the Letters of the word that spells out the Number value of the year.
A second method of analyzing the inner essence of a year is to use Letter Substitutions. Please see our Gematria page to understand them in detail. Please see below to understand some of these essences.
A third method is that The Kabbalists also teach us to utilize the Gematriot from the Letters of this word to analyze the Verses from the Tanach תנך - Torah, Neviim (Prophets) and Ketuvim (Writings) to help understand the meaning as well.
When making this Kabbalistic Analysis it is important to understand that some essences are revealed (like when a permutation spells a word in Hebrew) and some essences are concealed (like when doing letter substitutions). What this means for this type of analysis relates to the strength of the essence.
Below are 3 lists covering the information available from the 3 methods above. When an energy or essence is revealed than it is considered a stronger impact during the year. When it is concealed it will have a lessor impact but may actually be more important in the world Tikune for that year.
The standard way of writing a year in Hebrew is to use the Gematria of the Letters that then become a word. The year ahead is 5771 which would be spelled תשעא - Taf Shin Ayin Aleph. The Gematria of this word is 771. The immediate question is what happened to the "5". The practice is to drop the Hay or "5" since each year for a thousand years will have this and it is redundant. Each person knows that we are referring to the Sixth Millenium when we use the Hay or when we drop it. The only time we utilize the Hay is when we are analyzing the year completely like we are doing now.
When there are 4 letters (תשעא )there are 24 Permutations. When there are 5 letters התשעא there are 120 permuations which include the previous 24. Usually there are many permutations that do not have meaning in the Hebrew Language. This year is no exception.
Here are the permutations that have meaning in the Hebrew Language and their meanings. My explanation of these terms from a Kabbalistic perspective is below these 3 lists.
השעתא - has a Shoresh (root) within that means to industrialize - תעש
העתשא - has a Shoresh (root)within that means to argue; to be dismayed; to look about anxiously - שעה
העשתא - has a Shoresh (root) within that means the number 9 or to multiply by nine - תשע
האעשת - has a Shoresh (root) within that means to grow stout; or to grow fat - עשת
שאתעה - has a Shoresh (root) within that means to stray; to go astray; to wander; to misdirect - תעה
אשתעה - has a Shoresh (root) within that means to do; to make; to carry out; to create; to produce; to appoint - עשה
There are words with less than 4 letters as well. Here is that list that we were able to see.
אש = fire
את = (direct object word) which means the Schina (Female aspect of HaShem)
עת = time; now; period; era; and in modern idiom means from time to time
תה = in modern Hebrew means Tea
עתה = for the time being
At Bash = ת ז ב א = Gematria is 410 which is the same as the Hebrew word Kadosh which means Holy
Al Bam= ל ה י כ = Gematria is 65 which is the same as the Hebrew word Adonai which is a name of HaShem. Also the letters mean "because the teacher" Kabalisticly
Ab Bag = ב פ ת א = Gematria is 65. See above. Also the Letters mean "In the mouth of the Schina" Kabbalisticly
At Ba = ת ס ר ש = The letters Taf Resh Samech is the word "shield" in Hebrew
At Bach = ט ל ן ם = Lamed and Tet have a Gematria of 39 which is the Hebrrew word Tal which means Dew. Kabbalistically Tal relates to the Mashiach
At Ban = ם ו כ ל = Gematria is 96 which is the same as the Hebrew word Tzav which means Command. The Zohar explains that Command is Idol Worship. The 4 letters spell a word that comes from the Shoresh Caf Vav Hay . This word means to scorch; to scald; to burn.
The Gematria of התשעא and תשעא is 776 and 771 respectively. They each have 1 Verse with that Gematria in the Tanach.
Isaiah Chapter 26 Verse 4 has a Gematria of 776
בטחו ביהוה עדי-עד כי ביה יהוה צור עולמים
Trust ye in the LORD for ever, for the LORD is GOD, an everlasting Rock.
Tehillim (Psalms) Chapter 2 Verse 5 has a Gematria of 771
אז ידבר אלימו באפו ובחרונו יבהלמו
Then will He speak unto them in His wrath, and affright them in His sore displeasure
Before reading my comments below, it is recommended that you review the above lists and determine for yourself what lies ahead for you. The best person to know what is the future for you is YOU! This is because you are creating your life right now. Yes this creation of your life (think of the metaphor of a movie of your life) has all that chaos from previous lives within it. Yet you can change that. On Yom Kippur you will have the opportunity to connect to Cosmic Binah (The energy store) and create the movie of your life for next year. That is the purpose of this annual analysis. Intuitively, you are able to know what will happen next year. The lists above are there to help you.
Please feel free to send an email to email@example.com with your comments. I promise to post all email comments received below my comments; as well as any continuing conversation between us.
One final comment before i start. I will not follow the lists above. This is because the lists are tools for you to utilize your intuition. Intuition does not follow logically. It is a totally different connection that being rational. While the analysis may appear to you to be rational, it is truly intuitive using the tools above to motivate the intuition to reveal the truth.
Many people will find the Verse from Tehillim upsetting. There is no need to be upset by this verse. It has 6 words and 28 Letters. It starts with the word Az (just like the Song of the Sea). All of this, is telling us that the year ahead will be a year that is strong, powerful, emotional, and unifying. The verse from Isaiah is telling us to strengthen our Trust in Hashem by utilizing the connection to the word Vaday (certainty). We will have many opportunities to "see" cause and effect. How the spiitual worlds interact with our physical world during this next year. Also always remember that the energies involved with the lists above will interact and effect different people in different ways. This is because everything is always relative as explained in my class on
There is duality in this year as there is in many years. The energy of burning and scalding will apply to people who do not do their spiritual work. For those who are doing their spiritual work they will find the year ahead filled with spiritual passion,Holiness, and Unity. The Schina is husbanding the plan of Hashem to fruition and we may see the expansion of the medical industry improving the technology of cloning and stem cell research which is what will lead us to the technology for the Resurrection of the Dead.
This may also apply to the idea of industrializing parts of the medical industry and / or it may apply to those underdeveloped parts of the world who have been left behind by the industrialized western world. As we know the Western World utilizes a grerater percentage of the worlds resources than its population would warrant. This may change next year for those who are unwilling to realize that this world is not limited and HaShem will provide all of the necessary resources to provide the worlds population with their full desires.
For those who study Kabbalah and learn the tool of restriction will find it acting as a shield of protection for you. This will also be a year where education and teaching will expand exponentially primarily using the internet. It willl continue to be a year of changes in this regard as well.
There will be a tentandcy for people to be lead astray - to wander towards the physical rather than focus on the spiritual. This tendency must be resisted and many will find the passion and fire within the year assisting them in this regard.
One of the more disconcerting messages in the analysis is that the energy of Idol Worship will be enhanced during this year. People will think they are doing more Mitzvoth when they are really doing (building) more bodies without souls. This is what happens when one does a Mitzvah as a Command from HaShem. Without the study of Kabbalah many observant people continue to make the mistakes they have made lifetime after lifetime. Hopefully people will learn duriing this year to limit this consciousness which is also available from the essence of this year.
Time will continue to grow shorter making it easier for us to see the actions we do that are mistakes and take the time to do Tshuva and correct these mistakes. One just has to pay attention. The world will find that the strength of this years energy will move the world toward the fires of war. This will also come from the energy of arguing and becoming anxious. War and this anxiousness can be avoided but only with the tool of restriction which must be taught to as many people as possible.
It will be a year of easily manifested ideas. The danger is that we will find it easy to forget our spiritual work as we become fat with the physical plenty that will become available. So please be careful to make sure your ideas that you start to manifest are part of your tikune
It is also a year in which many people will try to appoint a leader for themselves so that they do not have to do the spiritual work. Do not make this mistake. Remember we live in a generation that has only hidden Tzadikim. Each of us must do his own spiritual work. Good Luck in this regard. We at yeshshem are available to help and assist you in learning what is your Tikune and how can you make sure you are doing it correctly.
Finally this year will continue the idea of the 9th Sephirah which is Yesod; Sexuality and Zvug which ceates unity. It will also continue the proliferation of Chochma or wisdom which is the 9th Sephira frorm the bottom of the Tree of Life.
