The Thirty-Second Names

The Thirty-Second Name of Gevurot: Vau-Shin-Resh

The first rung of cleaving is Adonai and is the Gate of Prayer – it is Malkut, Divine Sovereignty, the Holy Shekinah. We cleave to the God’s presence and power with us, within and all around us, and we turn to God in prayer, and so we become elevated and joined to Adonai – at times however, for one reason or another, we loose touch with the presence of God in the moment and do not experience the Holy Shekinah resting upon us, and prayer becomes a struggle, for we experience no connection and no energized enthusiasm; there is a feeling of dullness or deadness, and praying may seem vain or futile, as doubt enters into play because of the dullness.

When our awareness of the Holy Shekinah is obstructed and prayer becomes a struggle, calling upon this Holy Name the klippot interfering with our spiritual connection to the Holy Shekinah and our prayers is dispelled.

Within and behind everything that transpires, everything that appears in this world, there are flows of spiritual forces, wither divine, archonic or demonic, and there are many dimensions that occupy the same space as the material dimension – we have the ability to be aware of the movement of spiritual forces within and behind what’s happening and the ability to be aware of inner or metaphysical dimensions and the flow of spiritual forces from them into our world, but when we lose touch with the inner parts of our soul and the Holy Shekinah our awareness of such things is sorely diminished, and often cut off altogether.

This Holy Name can banish klippot that obstruct our awareness of the play of spiritual forces and the inner dimensions of reality.

Vau corresponds to our ruach – our human and divine intelligence, our “spirit,” and it is ruach that joins our nefesh (vital soul) with our neshamah (supernal soul or divine nature); in the klippah of matter and this world, and the domination of the bestial nature (nefesh behamit) in us, all too often we may lose touch with the inner aspects of our nefesh and our ruach – all too often we can feel somewhat soulless, and as though our intelligence, awareness and perception is diminished.

This Name of God can restore our connection with inner dimensions of our soul – our greater being and consciousness.

When we are out of touch with ourselves and our soul, and with God’s presence, we tend to sin or miss the mark, and we tend to repeat the same mistakes over and over again – we become bound up in the karmic continuum of the soul, and the habitual patterns of thought and behavior formed in the past; essentially, we forget what we have done before and the consequences that we experience, and so we do the same thing again, expecting a different result, only to be surprised when the same result comes – it’s rather crazy!

In this Holy Name is the power to look and see old patterns repeating themselves and to break the cycle and do something different; hence, empowerment to remember past mistakes and not repeat them.

Although the mind and our brain holds the capacity of memory in this life, the greater power of memory is in our soul – it is the inner part of the soul that remembers all, and the memory of the soul spans into lives past, and it includes sight into future lives as though they are “memories.”

Thus, restoring our connection with deeper parts of our soul, this Holy Name can be invoked to increase our memory, or to access the remembrance of our secret and undying soul.

In the case of a holy tzaddik or navi it may even be called upon to draw upon the memory of other souls.

Such memories are crucial for the tikkune of our soul, and so this Name of God holds empowerment for the tikkune of our soul – the tikkune of our soul is our part of the tikkune of the world, the tikkune of creation; and so it may empower us to do our part and to fulfill our soul’s mission.

A Meditation with the Name: Empowerment to Pray

When it seems that there is no inspiration to pray but you would like to pray, or when in prayer it feels like there is no connection, calling upon this Holy Name you can restore your awareness of connectedness and your inspiration.

Take the time to study and contemplate some Holy Scripture, or other sacred writings that are inspirational, and then recite a psalm or two that you find moving and uplifting, or recite some liturgy known to you that you feel is inspired and powerful; when you are doing this, offer up candles and incense, and do what you can to create an environment for spiritual inspiration.

Then, going within, open to the Holy Light from above and call upon the Blessed Name of Yeshua Messiah, and invoke the Divine Names of the Middle Pillar from Keter to Malkut – unify Yahweh with Adonai, and then intone this Holy Name:


As you intone this, bow down, and when you rise up let your prayers flow from your heart.

This is the practice.

A Practice among the Navim: Restoring the Soul

When a holy tzaddik or navi sees that a person is struggling with their faith and that they are out of touch with their soul they may pray for the person and call upon this Holy Name to help the person restore their soul – their sense of well-being.

They will call upon the Holy One and Shekinah, invoking the Divine Powers and making offerings for the person, praying for them; and holding the conscious intention of uplifting the person, they will join their soul from rung to rung, holding that person in their heart.

When they have joined their soul to Keter Elyon they will intone the Shema; and wrapped in their holy mantle they will bow down and call upon the Name:


Then, they will envision the person before them in body of light and they will divest themselves of the klippah of the material body and rise up in Body of Glory to meet the person – laying hands on the person and blessing them, they will intone the Name: Va-Sha-Ru, and as they do this they will envision great light flowing into the person with the conscious intention of the restoration of their soul and their awareness of the Divine Presence and Power in their lives.

Then, returning into the body, they will pray for the person as inspired by Ruach Ha-Kodesh, according to the knowledge of the soul of the person given to them, and in fruition they will perform a Holy Wedding Feast, sealing the movement.

This is the practice.

*Something similar may be done when there is a need for the restoration of memory, or there is a need to dispel powerful negative memories plaguing a person – in that case the laying on of hands is in the head, the hands of light being places within the head.

**Something similar may be done in the form of Giving & Receiving with oneself.

Angels of the Name

Vavliel, Shamshiel and Rakaviel are the holy angels of this Name of God – they come from the order of Ashim and they inspire luminous prayers and invocations, and make the presence of God known for the faithful.

This concludes our sacred discourse on the Thirty-Second Name of Gevurot through the Lord’s good grace. Hallelu Yah – Praise the Lord! Amen.

The Thirty-Second Name of Hasidim: Yod-Vau-Dalet

This Holy Name equals Kaf (20) and it is an invocation of wealth, the dispelling of the klippah of poverty; but more profoundly, this Holy Name holds the empowerment for the discovery of wisdom treasures – the ability to draw upon the Great Light Treasury of Divine Wisdom, and to manifest new teachings and practices through the illumination of Ruach Ha-Kodesh.

This Holy Name holds the knowledge of Abba (the Father) in Ben (the Son) and play of the interactions of Abba and Ben in the Four Foundations (Hokmah, Binah, Tiferet and Malkut); and it also invokes revelations of the World of the Holy Sefirot through the world of the angels.

When an initiate seeks a direct revelation of the Risen Messiah, and specifically insight into the holy mystery of the union of the Son with the Father, they may call upon this Name of God.

Now this Holy Name is Yod spelt out – the full force of the Supernal Sefirot and the Primordial Elements is in this Holy Name, the power and the glory of the Realm of Yichud, the Pleroma of Light; intoning it in Ruach Ha-Kodesh that Holy Light is known in everything here below. It is a Holy Name of “spiritual nuclear power” when intoned in Union.

Through this Holy Name of God, intoned in Union, some among the holy ones have even gazed with their inner soul into mysteries of Adam Kadmon, Metatron and the Supernal Shekinah, running and returning to reveal the loftiest esoteric and metaphysical mysteries of creation and God.

On the most practical level, aside from a radical change in fortune, it is a Holy Name invoked to open the “doors” to new possibilities and new opportunities, both material and spiritual – when initiates are seeking new adventures in their life they may call upon this Holy Name to open the way.

A Holy Meditation with the Name: Invoking Opportunity

When you seek to invoke new possibilities or new opportunities in your life on any level, cleaving to the Messiah and Shekinah of the Messiah, call upon this Holy Name.

Create a sacred circle, and turn to the Holy One in prayer and meditation, calling upon Yahweh Elohim in the Blessed Name; when you receive the Holy Shekinah from the West, turn again to the East and invoke the Divine Powers of the East, the power of the Direction-Archangel, Wind-Spirit and Great Kerub-Elemental Force.

When you have invoked, let appropriate offers be made.

Then, intone Yah Yahweh Yeshua Adonai, activating the Name, and call upon the Name before the Divine Powers of the East: Yo-Vo-Da; and calling upon the Name speak the opening of the way that you seek.

Then, worship in the presence of Yahweh Elohim and pray for all your neighbors – all your relations; and complete your worship with the Holy Wedding Feast.

The way will be opened before you.

This is the practice.

A Practice among the Navim: Invoking a Wisdom Treasure

When a holy tzaddik or navi seeks to receive a new teaching or practice for the people they will tend a continuum of prayer, contemplation and meditation, seeking the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, the revelation of Divine Wisdom, and they will call upon this Holy Name.

When they have generated the continuum and it is time, they will go into their secret room or sanctuary in the usual way and worship in the presence of Yahweh – invoking and intoning the Shema, they will bow themselves down, and they will ascend with their soul grade to grade to Yahweh Elohim (Da’at), reaching into Yah (Hokmah), and they will unify Yah with El Shaddai: Ah-Ya-La-Ha-Shi-Da-Yo.

(Alternatively, Ah-Ya-La-Ha Shaddai)

Then, they will intone the Name: Ya-Vu-Da, holding the conscious intention of the revelation they seek to receive, turning their mind and heart to it.

When Ruach Ha-Kodesh comes upon them and they have received the wisdom treasure, they will intone the unification of Yah and Adonai: Ah-Ya-Da-Ha-Nu-Yo.

They will give praise and thanks to the Holy One who reveals all mysteries and bless the Holy Name, and they will pray for the continuation of the ongoing Divine Revelation among the people and land, and will speak the generation of the new heaven, the Light Transmission brought forth through the grace of God (El).

When the treasure is shared with the people, either through speaking it or writing it, the movement is complete – though some secrets are meant to be shared with very few and not with all.

This is the practice.

The Angels of the Name

Yadvavel, Vodadiel and Demshavael are the angels of this Holy Name; they come from the order of the Ofanim and hold secret knowledge of the keys to the Wisdom Treasury, standing close to Archangel Ratziel.

This concludes our sacred discourse on the Thirty-Second Names of Gevurot and Hasidim through the blessing power of God in the Holy Spirit. Hallelu El – Praise God! Amen.

O Holy One, may Your Divine Revelation continue among us and may the Continuum of Light Transmission remain in the world until all is accomplish on the Day of Be-With-Us; amen.

Blessings & shalom!

New Moon Shalom Tau Malachi:

I'm delighting in what the Mother Spirit inspired you to share introducing mysteries of Yod-Vau-Dalet. In addition to your citing these letters as the spelling of the Hebrew letter Yod, I'm also moved to see the Hebrew word for hand, yad יָד in Yod-Dalet within these teachings.

God's 'hand' throughout scripture speaks of action and manifestation. Long before the antique finger pointing the way somewhere in old western signage, I recall Byzantine mosaics of a Divine Hand pointing at Yeshua from above as a visual way of emphasizing the Father's voice-overs in key moments of the Gospel: This is the my Son, the Beloved, with whom I'm well pleased. I feel something similar in any blessing of any grade in our experience from heaven as when you give to them, they gather it up; when you open your hand, they are filled with good things (Psalm 104:28).

What more may we draw out of this mystery of Yod-Dalet in light of this Divine Name with the obvious mystery of the Son, Vav, dispensing to perud what originates in yichud יָחַד, another mystery flanked by Yod-Dalet?

May I perhaps add another question to this thread concerning the Name of Vau-Shin-Resh.

As has been spoken in other places by Tau Malachi:

"As we have alluded to above, in place of Yod-He-Vau-He we may also intone Yod-He-Shin-Vau-He, also Yod-He-Vau-Shin-He; with the former is the kavvanah of the Messiah in the ascension and the outpouring of Supernal Fire, and with the latter it is the Second Coming, the Messiah in the Apocalypse – the initial kavvanah with Torahkiel remaining the same, kavvanah upon the Holy Torah. These two give insight into the emergence of the Holy Gospel from the Torah, the Holy Gospel hidden within the Torah."

Mystery of mysteries! The movement of the Vau moving before the Shin in "Yod-He-Vau -Shin-He" seems to hold many mysteries perhaps pointing to banishing of klippot and as spoken the Second Coming of Messiah in the Apocaylpse.

In this Name Vau Shin Resh we perhaps see the Face of such a movement of banishing klippotic forces personal and universal gazing towards the Second Coming?

Can more be spoken of this mystery?

Blessings to you in Messiah Yeshua!

First we may consider the Name of God, Yod-Vau-Dalet, and then, in another post, we may consider the Name, Vau-Shin-Resh.

As we know, the full power of the 144 Names of God becomes manifest with the Risen Messiah, and it is through the Messiah that the knowledge and power of the 72 Names of Hasidim is gifted to us, specifically through the empowerment of Mercy and Judgment given to the disciples in the upper room as they received the Holy Spirit, and later the Pentecostal Fire, coming into being as elders in the Way, Anointed Tzaddikim. Understanding this, there are deep mysteries of the Messiah and Gospel revealed within each of these Holy Names of God, and they correspond with various powers and movements of the Shekinah of Messiah.

At the outset let us recall the teaching of the Holy Kabbalah concerning Yod as the unfolding of the space element, Yod, one dimensional space, Vau, two dimensional space, and Dalet, three dimensional space, and with this arising of space element, if arising in innate purity, so also the arising of the other four primordial elements of consciousness in their innate purity, air, fire, water and earth; hence, an essential power of Yod is pure emanation. In this we may contemplate the virgin birth of the Messiah, and again, the appearance of the Messiah in the transfiguration and resurrection, and then the dissolution of the Messiah into pure light in the ascension. These movements in the Gospel correspond with the spiritual power of Yod-Vau-Dalet.

Though, indeed, we may speak of the generation of three dimensional space within the spelling of Yod, so also in Yod-Vau-Dalet we can speak of the opening of a portal, gate, door, to inner, metaphysical dimensions and worlds, or the heavens and the heaven of heavens. In this we may recall a teaching of the Gospel of St. Philip, “Do not despise the lamb, for by it you see the door.”

Yod is the Father, transcendent, concealed, Vau is the Son, the revelation of the Father, and Dalet is the everlasting door of the Great Ascension - reintegration with the transcendent, and corresponds with the power of the Holy Spirit gifted to us through the Son, the Messiah. This is the power of the “hand of God” on the Messiah, and through the Messiah so also upon us, and with the hand of God upon us, so the Shekinah of the Messiah rests upon us, and that radiance of the Supernal Sefirot that enshrouds and surrounds souls that receive the Messiah, the Anointing with the Supernal Light and Spirit.

Here we may recall that Malkut is the Yod (10th) Sefirah, and as such at times the Shekinah is called the “hand of God.”

The left and right hand of God, though, as is known, is Judgment (Gevurah, Din) and Mercy (Hesed), and therefore at times when judgment or mercy comes upon a person or peoples it is said the “hand of God is upon them,” and so it is!

The hand of God coming upon us, though, is the Holy Shekinah manifest in Mercy or Judgment, or Compassion.

Always the hand of God implies a great influx of the presence and power of God, and often alludes to the manifestation of God as Shaddai, the Almighty, working great wonders, great miracles, delivering, healing and revealing, or enlightening.

Thus this Holy Name is an invocation of great spiritual power, great influx, and potentially the direct influx of the Supernals; hence, Supernal Mercy, Supernal Grace.

It has been said by the masters of the tradition that this is among the Names of God through which Tzaddikim are able to “bend the heavens.” Initiates who have received teachings of the Kabbalah associated with this mystery will understand, and nothing more concerning this will need to be said.

May you be blessed! Amen.

Shalom Aleichem!

Grace and peace to you in Hayyah Yeshua!

Now let us look into mysteries of the Holy Name Vau-Shin-Resh and see if we may venture further into knowledge of this Name of God. May the Lord gift us with insight and understanding! Amen.

There are other secret intentions for the invocation of the Name. First, this Holy Name equals 506, and so also does the word for “ox,” shor, which is composed of the same letters as this Holy Name but reversing the order of Vau and Shin. This corresponds with the kerubic face associated with the north, and as such we may understand this Holy Name as the power to ground and manifest influxes of the Sefirot, and specifically the manifestation of material bounty. Interestingly enough there is also another significant word that equals 506, Asherah, the name given to the Holy Shekinah in our Kabbalah, and therefore this is a Name of God invoked for revelations of the mysteries of Asherah, knowledge of Asherah, the Shekinah of Messiah.

In Judaic tradition this Name is said to be an invocation of the angel of the Shekinah for guardianship, or for battle against the spiritual forces of darkness, the klippot, akin to what is taught of Abram and his battle to deliver Lot from the Kings of Edom, that the angel of the Shekinah went before him and delivered his enemies into his hands. Joined with this, this is also a name invoked for gazing into Zer Anpin (Little Face), or to invoke the Shekinah of Zer Anpin; understanding that the world of angels has its root in Zer Anpin, so it is a name invoking knowledge of angels and communion with angels. Understanding the power to invoke the guardianship of the angel of the Shekinah in this Name, as well as communion with all manner of heavenly hosts, so you will understand that this Name may also become an invocation of the warriors of heaven, armies of heaven, with the angel of the Holy Shekinah leading them in their divine action for the protection of the righteous and deliverance of souls from the spiritual forces of the Other Side.

As is known, in the Gnostic Path it is common for initiates to pray, seeking direct experience of the Risen and Ascended Messiah, or to seek a visionary experience of Hayyah Yeshua, “Living Yeshua.” This is among the Names of God that may be invoked when an initiate is seeking such a vision and the knowledge of the Messiah that comes with it. In this it does have a spiritual connection with the Name of the Messiah, YHVShH, the Name invoking greater Supernal Influx, or greater realization of Supernal or Messianic Consciousness.

These are inner and secret teachings on this Holy Name that it is given for me to share today.

May the face of the Lord shine upon you this day! Amen.

Shalom Aleichem!
