The Thirteenth Names

The Thirteenth Name of Gevurot: Yod-Zain-Lamed


The Holy Kabbalah teaches us that there are five aspects of the soul: nefesh (vital soul), ruach (spirit or intelligence), neshamah (supernal soul or divine nature), hayyah (life or light power) and yechidah (holy spark or unique essence); and further, the Kabbalah says that each of these aspects or grades of the soul contains all five within itself – thus there are twenty-five grades of the soul, and all of them together count as one aspect or grade, one Holy Soul, which makes for twenty-six grades, the number of the Great Name of God, Yahweh.

These aspects or grades of our holy soul span all of the Olamot, from Asiyah, corresponding to nefesh, to Adam Kadmon, corresponding to yechidah. Thus, the human soul is a metadimensional being-consciousness that spans countless dimensions, reaching into countless realms, worlds and universes in the Entirety and the Pleroma of Light, from earth to the highest heavens, and beyond, into God and Godhead.

Who and what we appear to be in this world is only the outermost surface of our being-consciousness, our soul, and so the material world and universe is only the outermost surface of the metadimensional reality we call creation or sentient existence; within and behind this superficial appearance is an endless depth of being-consciousness and existence, ranging from the most impermanent dimension of space-time to existences of very different modes of space-time in inner dimensions, all the way to the realm of the eternal, the infinite – Bornless Being.

Here we tend to grasp at the egoistic self that arises – rather like a ghost or shadow in consciousness, and we grasp at name and form, and personal history, unaware of the greater depths of our being-consciousness within and behind the surface. This is the cause of immeasurable sorrow and suffering through potentially endless rounds of birth, life and death (the gilgulim), for cleaving only to the surface we become identified and bound up in all of the egoistic desires and fears of the surface, we become bound up in sin and death – negative karma; and yet, in truth, in the depths of our soul, in our inmost being, we are inseparable from the source of all being, the Holy One of Being, the Eternal, the Infinite (Ain Sof), and we are bornless, and therefore deathless.

Our very nature and essence is Bornless Being, which is to say Eternal Life, Eternal Youth.

Indeed! In this world the vast majority of us live only on the surface, completely unaware of the greater depths of our being and the heights into which that depth extends – few know and understand that what we behold in Yeshua Messiah and other great masters that have appeared among us is our own true nature, our own true being as we are in God or Enlightenment. In terms of the aspects or grades of the soul, in the present human condition, most of us live only at the level of nefesh – the vital soul, and living only in the nefesh, most of us live in nefesh behamit (the bestial soul), never generating the state of nefesh of nefesh elokit (the godly soul), let alone arising to live from our ruach (human and divine intelligence), or our neshamah (supernal soul or divine nature). Nevertheless, the greater potential of ruach and neshamah is within us all, as well as the divine potential of hayyah and yechidah, which is our holy soul in God and Godhead.

Indeed! So powerful is the ignorance that dominates this world – the demiurge, that even among those who have faith in Yeshua as the Messiah, and call him Adonai, “Lord,” and Messiah, the “Anointed,” few know and understand that the Messiah of El is the very essence and nature of their soul, and therefore among the faithful few labor for an actual self-realization in the Messiah, or seek to embody Supernal or Messianic Consciousness – the true enlightenment and liberation of the soul; few labor to recognize, realize and embody the inner aspects or grades of their holy soul, the fullness of the Holy Light of God that is their soul, or in their consciousness and being.

This is a Holy Name of God that contains the power to shatter klippot that would obstruct and prevent our recognition and realization of the inner aspects or higher grades of our soul-being; and it is a Holy Name the holds the power to help uplift us to a higher grade of our soul – whatever the present aspect or grade of the soul we are able to access, through this Holy Name we can draw upon the next aspect or grade beyond it.

This is a Holy Name of God that can bring about radical change in the world and serve to uplift the world in the Path of the Great Ascension – for we are the world and the world is us, and when we bring about a radical shift in our own consciousness, when we upgrade our soul-being, we bring about change in the world and uplift the world; when a sufficient number of individuals in the collective rise to a higher level of consciousness and live from inner parts of their soul, a greater consciousness is manifest in the world and the world is uplifted – in a manner of speaking, something of the kingdom of heaven is made manifest on earth; although, indeed, the fruition of the kingdom of heaven is not of this world and will not be in this world, but rather the World-To-Come is the world taken up in the Great Ascension into the Supernal Abode, the Divine Rapture, as we behold in Hayyah Yeshua and the great masters of the Rainbow Body Attainment.

Of this Holy Name it has been said by the masters of the tradition: “It is the power of the Supernals set into the Seven, and their force extended into the world,” and so they also have said, “It is the Force of the Apocalypse, Supernal Grace poured out, shattering the dominion of the klippot and reintegrating all holy sparks in the End-Of-Days.”

Likewise, of this Name of God it has been said: “When you see a great shed, give the Maggid of the Shekinah her sword, and let the holy maggid drive out the shed from the people and the land” – this, exactly, is the power in this Holy Name, as known and understood among Mekubalim from days of old until this very day.

*Here we may say that this is a Holy Name of God well know to Templar initiates of the Order of St. Michael – drawing the sword with this Holy Name the Enemy is vanquished in that very instant.

A Meditation with the Name: The Sword in the Hand of the Maggid


When an initiate is on the verge of a breakthrough to a higher grade of Mochin Gadlut, or they are striving to pass into an inner aspect of their holy soul, but try as they might there is an obstruction they cannot overcome, calling upon this Holy Name, through the blessing and grace of God in it, the klippah will be shattered; likewise, sensing a very powerful dark and hostile force challenging their continuum, or challenging another, they will call upon this Holy Name, which gives the Maggid of the Holy Shekinah a sword to subjugate or destroy the shed (demon).

They will call upon the Name in the following way:

First the initiate will enact a continuum of self-purification as is appropriate, and then at the time they have appointed for the prayer-meditation they will abide in primordial meditation, waiting upon the Spirit of Yahweh. When the Spirit moves them, they will bind their soul in ascent from Adonai to Eheieh, and having bound their soul to Eheieh, they will intone the Shema with the traditional kavvanot – having done this, then they will descend from grade to grade to Adonai, bringing the shefa down, speaking corresponding prayers-invocations with each Sefirah, invoking the fullness of the Shekinah, and the full power of the Maggid of the Shekinah.

When they have descended, they will rise up and cleave to Shaddai, and they will envision themselves in Body of Light with the Spiritual Sun in their heart; and then they will reach to the Left, calling upon the Name of Elohim Tzavaot, and as they intone the Name they will envision a ray of light shooting forth from their heart and magically appearing as the Holy Angel of the Shekinah before them.

*This maggid is envisioned in Kerubic form, with the four faces and four great wings.

With the Holy Maggid before them, they will speak their invocation for shattering the klippah, or for the subjugation or destruction of the shed; and speaking this, they will call upon the Divine Name of Elohim, and then they will pronounce the three Holy Letters of the Thirteenth Name of the Gevurot: Yo-Za-Lo, and as they do this they will envision a great sword of flashing fire magically appearing in the hands of the Holy Maggid, and envision the countenance of the Holy Angel becoming fierce – its great aura of splendorous light transforming to an aura of flaming fire – with the intonement of the Divine Name of Elohim Givor, they will send the Holy Maggid against the klippah or shed.

*This will usually include a visualization of the shed and the angel striking it with the sword, vanquishing it.

Then they will intone El Shaddai and Yahweh Elohim Tzavaot, and envision the dissolution of the Holy Maggid into fiery light that streams back into the Spiritual Sun in their heart, and they will pray for the uplifting and reintegration of the holy sparks that have been liberated into the Light Continuum – intoning Elohim El, and then Yahweh Yah.

Then they will pray for the liberation of all living spirits and souls from the dominion of the demiurge and klippot, and pray that all are received into the Sanctuary of Grace and uplifted in Hayyah Yeshua, and they will intone the unification of Yahweh and Yeshua:

YaYoHaHoVaShoHaVoHu

Then they will say, “Amen.”

This is the practice.

Another Meditation with the Name: Remembering the Savior


When you seek to draw upon the light of an inner aspect of your soul, whether ruach or neshamah, remember the Savior and your salvation in the Sanctuary of Grace, and cleaving inwardly to the Messiah and Holy Bride, the Shekinah of Messiah, envision the Holy Lamb of God on the Book of Seven seals, enthroned in the Holy Mother’s lap, with an assembly of countless holy tzaddikim and maggidim gathered around him – a great luminous assembly filling all directions of endless space, and with the holy assembly, bow yourself down before Adonai Messiah, taking Holy Sanctuary in Adonai Yeshua Messiah, the Holy Gospel and Community of the Elect.

Then, chant the Holy Name, Melekh Messiah, Yeshua Messiah, Adonai Messiah, and holding the conscious intention for the elevation of consciousness, pronounce the Holy Letters of the Name: Yey-Zey-Ley.

As you do this, envision yourself in Body of Light magically transformed into Hayyah Yeshua, the Risen Messiah, and envision in Body of Light that you grow very great in size, encompassing a vast expanse of space – see the sun in the center of your head, the earth in your heart and the moon in your navel; now shift the intonement of the Holy Name: Yo-Za-La and add to it Yah, as you do this envision the sun and moon dissolve into fluid flowing light and that they pour into the earth in your heart, pervading the whole world with Holy Light, spiritual and supernal.

When you have done this, let your Body of Light, as Hayyah Yeshua, condense to the size of your physical body, and see the Light Realm within and all around you – and unify Yahweh with Eheieh:

Ah-Ya-Ha-Ha-Ya-Va-Ha-Ha

As you do this, envision that you, as Hayyah Yeshua, become brilliant diamond-like light, and envision that light pervading the whole world, illuminating one and all alike – envision peace on earth and goodwill among humankind, all beings happy and filled with great joy.

Then, intone the unification of Adonai with Yahweh:

Ah-Yo-Da-Ho-Na-Vo-Ya-Yo

Envision that you pass into the Holy Light in Divine Rapture of the Ascension, and that the whole world is drawn up into Divine Rapture with you – abide unified with the Light Continuum, Yahweh.

When your soul has run and returned in this way, worship in the presence of Yahweh as inspired by Ruach Ha-Kodesh.

This is the practice.

A Practice among the Navim: Holy Intention

The Holy Apostle who is Baal Shem by a simple heart prayer, as a heart-wish, or even by a mere thought or silent intention, can invoke the full power of the Holy Names.

Intending to uplift, when Ruach Ha-Kodesh is in motion, filling the mind with the Holy Name, souls are uplifted in that very instant – Praise Eheieh! Amen.

This is the practice.

Another Practice among the Navim: Dancing in the Shekinah of Yahweh

Sons and daughters gather in charismatic worship – they sing and dance in the presence of Yahweh; calling upon Ha-Shem and the Divine Powers in sacred circle, they make offerings, and with great jubilation they give praise and thanks to Yahweh.

When the Spirit moves, they intone the Divine Name:

Ya-Yo-Ha-Zo-Va-Lo-Ha

And then they pronounce the Name:

Ya-Za-La

When they are taken up in Ruach Ha-Kodesh the will of God is done.

In the end they pray for and bless all of their relations, and praise God’s great and wondrous works.

This is the practice.

Angels of the Name

Yofiel, Zvael and Lahshofael are the angels of this Name of God; they come from the order of Galgalim and know secret ways of the Holy Merkavah, descending and ascending.

This concludes our sacred discourse in the Thirteenth Name of the Gevurot by the blessings and grace of El – Hallelu El, Praise God!

The Thirteenth Name of Hasidim: He-Nun-Resh


It is said in the tradition, “The Holy Mother shows us the Face of our Father,” and according to the masters of the tradition, this is the Holy Name invoked to behold the Face of the Father in the Son – in it is knowledge of Hayyah Abba in Hayyah Yeshua.

This is also said to be the Secret Name of the “Sun at Midnight,” and calling upon it mysteries of that Hidden Sun are revealed; this is akin to the appearance of radiant glory around the holy masters in broad daylight.

The Sun at Midnight in known for the power of “remanifestation,” and in it is the secret of the Dark Radiance redeemed and uplifted in the Risen Messiah – something of the play of Lilith restored to her Supernal Glory, as in the End-of-Days; thus, also, this Holy Name holds the power of the ancient ones that are oath-bound wrathful guardians from the time of Enoch – but of this mystery we can speak no more, save to one who knows already.

Now all of this is deep and esoteric, but there is a practical dimension to this Holy Name – there are times when our old appearance and way is no longer good or useful to us, and we have a need to shift faces, shift appearances, and when we need a shift in our person and life such as this, this is the Holy Name we call upon.

Having the power of shifting appearances, as distinct from actual shape-shifting, this is a Name of enchantment power for blessings, for good; not for the purpose of deception, God forbid, but reflecting a truth or reality hidden by the appearances of the world of falsehood.

This Holy Name is also among those for a greater shift than in appearance – it may be invoked for a shift in Direction, to “turn our face” in a new Direction of the Sacred Circle.

There is something more than this though, and perhaps most significant of all – often we may find that our inside and outside do not match, or that our interior and exterior life are very different from one another; through the blessings and grace of God in this Holy Name we can receive spiritual empowerment to bring our inside and outside into resonance and harmony.

A Meditation with the Name: Turing the Face

If you want to bring the outside and inside into resonance and harmony, and you wish to shift Directions in Sacred Circle – perform a purification ceremony and stand in the center of the sacred circle, facing the Direction you are going; call upon your Heavenly Father and Earthly Mother, and invoke the Divine Powers, and make offerings.

Pray about your need to balance your interior and exterior life, and pray about your need to shift Directions in the Sacred Circle – be completely open and honest with Adonai, and speak what you need and what you mean.

Then, in the presence of Yahweh Elohim, intone Yeshua Yahweh Yah; when you have done this, invoke the Name: Hey-Na-Rey, and as you invoke this Name turn to the new Direction you seek to walk – and then invoke that Divine Power, calling upon the corresponding Name of God, the Holy Wind, Archangel, Kerub and Forces, and pray for a blessing and empowerment to walk in that direction.

When you have done this, again, purify yourself and make an offering to that Direction – then pray for all your relations, and depart the sacred circle in that direction.

This is the practice.

A Practice among the Navim: Gazing upon the Face

When it is time, the navi will seclude him or herself, and having prayed wrapped in their mantle, they will bow down – they will divest themselves of the klippah of matter and arise in the Body of Light, and they will go up in ascent from one rung to another, until the place of reaching to Kodesh Imma.

As they gaze into the Radiance of Imma, with the intention of a glimpse of Hayyah Abba, they will intone the Holy Name: Ha-Na-Ri; and so they will gaze, seeing, not seeing, abiding in the presence of the LORD.

When they have gazed, they will speak and pray as Ruach Ha-Kodesh inspires – this will complete the movement.

This is the practice.

Another Practice among the Navim: Priestly Blessing

This Holy Name is often used to extend blessings – when a tzaddik or navi is called to bless a person, they may call upon Ha-Shem and the Divine Powers, and raising their hands in the sign of blessing on either side of their head, they will speak the ancient blessing:

Yahweh bless you and keep you;
Yahweh make his face to shine upon you;
Yahweh lift up his countenance upon you, and give you peace – shalom.


(Numbers 6:25-26)

Then they will intone Yah Yahweh Yeshua, and the Name: Ha-Na-Ra joined to Yahweh, and they will let their face shine in transmission; if the person is physically present they may lay hands on them, and may also anoint them, but if not they will envision light streaming out upon the person, blessings them.

This is the practice.

Angels of the Name

Huanvael, Neshmaiel and Ralvaliel are the holy angels of this Name of God; they are from the order of Aralim and hold secret knowledge of the Faces of the Partzufim, though they know nothing of the Mochin of the Partzufim, which is know only to the Prince of the Face among the holy angels.

This concludes our sacred discourse upon the Thirteenth Names of Gevurot and Hasidim – all through the grace of El Elyon; Hallelu El Elyon – Praise God Most High!

Holy One, we praise and bless Your Name, and we call upon Your Name – may Your Face continue to shine upon us and bless our continuum of sacred discourse, and may the merit generated by our sacred discourse, inspired by Your Holy Spirit, be a blessing upon all living spirits and souls; in the Blessed Name of Yeshua Messiah we pray, calling upon Your Holy Name, O Yahweh – amen.

Blessings & shalom!

Heh Nun Resh

Shalom Tau Malachi!

In addition to the beautiful insights from the attributes you'd shared of this Thirteenth Name among Hasidim He-Nun-Resh, these letters happen to make a beautiful noun: "the Candle," "the Lamp," or "the Fire."

This sense of light or fire or glistening can be literal or figurative. One of the loveliest metaphors made of this neer or ner is from Psalm 119:105: Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light on my path.

More unusual is ner as a metaphor of the neshamah of humanity: The inmost soul of humanity is a candle of YHVH searching all the inward parts of the belly (Proverbs 20:27).

Two rarer senses extend this into a figurative sense of progeny (1 Kings 15:4) and a most holy fire in two stories from Daniel: the execution of Daniel's three friends in Nebuchadnezzar's furnace and Daniel's visions of fire emanating from the Ancient of Days.

I share these examples with the hope you might have more to say about the very beautiful implications of the figurative sense of this candle, lamp, and sacred fire—and its light.

Gratefully,

Elder Gideon

Grace and peace to you in Hayyah Yeshua, the Risen Messiah!

This insight is a wonderful divine inspiration, surely gifted to you by the Holy Spirit. These Names of God hold deep mysteries if we look into them, and they contain secrets that only will God reveal to those who invoke, calling upon them, and contemplating and meditating upon them. What you have shared my brother is insight into an inmost mystery of this Holy Name and because you have experience this unveiling and inquired into it so it is given for me to share something more with you and the community about this Name of God, the True Light. Praise God! May God help us probe this great mystery and gift us with understanding! Amen.

“Midnight Sun,” this is a veiled term for the inmost Light and Fire of God Most High, El Elyon, and this is the ‘fire of the Ancient of Days,’ Atik Yomin. As we know, El Elyon is a Name of God corresponding to Keter and Atik Yomin is the inmost Holy Partzuf of Atzilut corresponding with Keter of Keter of Atzilut. This holy fire, light, is indeed the radiance of the Most Hidden One, the ‘Concealed of the concealed.’ According to the Prophet Daniel the soul of the Messiah emanates from Atik Yomin, this Holy Fire, Primordial Light, being the ‘Holy Light’ of the Messiah, the light of all the prophets and apostles of God Most High.

That this is the ‘fire’ in the furnace into which the companions of the prophet are cast but are unharmed, so we may understand that this fire does not burn the righteous, but rather illuminates, enlightens; and we cannot help but remember the burning bush, a fire that did not consume the bush in the initial revelation to the Prophet Moses, and likewise the Holy Fire that descended upon the disciples at Pentecost, enlightening them and consecrating them as holy apostles of God.

Also we may recall what Yohanan said, the he was sent with a baptism of water, but the one coming after him would come with a baptism of fire, and likewise the Gospel of St. Mark that recounts a threefold baptism of water, fire and the Spirit. Along with this is the teaching in the Gospel of St. Thomas in which the Master says that he has ‘cast fire upon the world’ and that he is ‘tending it until it blazes.’

Indeed, this is the ‘fire of the Ancient of Days,’ the inmost radiance of El Elyon, God Most High, and this Holy Fire is revealed and gifted to us through the Messiah, what may be called a ‘spiritual nuclear fire’ that illuminates and transforms everything into the manifestation of itself, Supernal and Divine Being.

This Holy Name of God Most High corresponds with that Holy Light, Holy Fire, of the Messiah so that those who cleave to the Messiah and God Most High, and who invoke this Name of God, may experience an influx of this Holy Fire, Supernal and Primordial Light, if God wills it. As perhaps you might intuit, given your divine insight and inspiration concerning this Name, this is among the ‘secret’ Names of Light Transmission, or the baptism of fire, and it is a common Name of God invoked in the Holy Feast of the Ascension and Pentecost.

Praise God for showing you this!

O God Most High, may we be bathed in the Holy Light of the Messiah and be unified with the Messiah in You! Amen.


Shabbat Shalom!

Na'ar

Shalom Tau Malachi:

Praise God for Light and Fire! Your response extending this Thirteenth Name empowered many prayers consecrating a recent sacred fire offering in community. All praise to the One!

In line with these principles, I found another word that I believe flows beautifully with everything you've taught above. If we add an ayin between nun and resh, we have a powerful word for the youth or the lad—Na'ar—who is the common figure of Metatron, as in this famous proof Kabbalistic proof text: Train up the Lad in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it (Proverbs 22:6).

This proof text holds an open secret:

חֲנֹךְ לַנַּעַר Khanok la Na'ar — Train up the Lad.

חֲנֹךְ Train with an added vav becomes חֲנוֹךְ Khanok—Enoch. Praise God for the most obvious reason for this proof text verse!

As I contemplate this, I recall the many images of fire by which Enoch was transfigured into Metatron:

"When Enoch was transformed into Metatron, his body was turned into celestial fire—his flesh became flame, his veins fire, his bones glimmering coals, the light of his eyes heavenly brightness, his eyballs torches of fire, his hair a flaring blaze, all his limbs and organs burning sparks, and his frame a consuming fire. To right of him sparkled flames of fire, to left to him burnt torches of fire, and on all sides he was engirdled by storm and whirlwind, hurricane and thundering" (Ginzberg 140).

If the One wills, perhaps more could be shared of the personification of this fire as the Youth.

Gratefully,

Elder Gideon
