One afternoon almost 17 years ago, a caretaker let me into the 16th century Synagogue of Rabbi Isaac Luria in Sfat and all alone with the painted blue raised bimah behind me, I prayed, meditated, and conversed with the Ari. With wild birds swirling all around the room, diving, fluttering, their noisy wings churning the silence, I sensed a light emanating from the wall in front of me. Embracing it, I was lifted upwards, levitated forward, upward, pulled upwards by my head and chest.
It was not the weirdest thing that happened to me in my life, nor even on that trip to Israel, so I took the levitation in stride. Last week, as I incorporated the 432 Hz healing frequency found concealed within the Torah’s first word into a powerful meditation found in the Zohar, I was once again drawn upwards and levitated toward the light and the visions. 17 years ago, it was the connection to the Arizal. This past week it was to the Light. Since it had nothing to do with me personally, and everything to do with specifics of the meditation, it is a connection you can make as easily as I did.
Do you ever feel like there is more out there than meets the eye, or that unseen forces are manipulating the world around you? It is and they are doing so. There is a way to tap into those forces.
Do you remember when you had to turn a knob on your car radio to tune it into the right frequency to pick up your favorite radio station, or at least remember seeing them do it in the movies? Do you recall the static when you were only off by a tiny bit? If you carefully tuned that dial to 432 Hz, you would tune right into those forces. That would be Radio Binah, broadcasting from the primordial Aleph(א) deep in the heart of the universe, which reveals all the unseen happenings in our universe and all the unheard messages.
Nevertheless, if you are off by the tiniest bit, you get nothing but static and the feeling that you are missing something. Imagine how easy life would be without that stressful static buzzing all-around us, blocking out what is really important at every given moment of your life. Some people are much better than the rest of us at tuning into that exact frequency some call “the third eye; they do not need a special antenna or the secret schematics of how to build it. The rest of us, do. Fortunately, a blueprint of just such an antenna was found reproduced in a 2000 year old book, the Book of Splendor, the Zohar. Several cultures, ancient and modern, have tried to reproduce it in stone and steel, yet the only materials we need are in our heads.
How does it work and what does it have to with the healing we spoke about in our previous article? There are 10 dimensions that comprise the greater universe. Each one filters and channels the energy (Light) downward to the next level below utilizing differing mechanisms and veils. This is the Tree-of-Life. Our existence is entirely played out in the lowest of all the dimension. The next 6 sefirot/dimensions above our lowly level (Malchut) form a ladder to the purely spiritual world where neither time nor space exist in a form that we can understand. It is a realm that we cannot affect or sully, and ironically, it is known as the Realm of Understanding, Binah. Think of the dimension of Binah as a huge steady wind, like the one the Torah states separated the walls of water in the Red Sea. It is an all-encompassing wind, wider than the ocean, the solar system, our galaxy. It is as wide and broad as the entire universe. The next highest and even broader realm is Chochma, and the point that separates the two is the primordial Aleph(א). Spinning like the outstretched arms of a giant turbine, the Aleph(א) funnels down and filters all the energy from the highest realms into a ceaseless and mighty wind. That wind blows through our universe and lives, cooling the fires of the earthly plane, yet it is all but imperceptible to most of us.
This is the wind of Moshiach. This is the wind we call Light. This is the wind that will levitate us. It is the wind that must be harnessed if we are to sail away when the time comes. Once we jettison our anchors and let go of our physical desires, our sailboats will be ready to soar into the enlightenment of the world to come, of the age to come.
None of us can go anywhere, though, unless we first hoist our sails. We have a global and individual responsibility. Just as I need to jettison my anchors and hoist my sails, so do you. You need to jettison your anchors and hoist your sails.
Fortunately, the antenna given to us by Rabbi Shimon Bar Yochai nearly 2000 years ago unfurls into a beautiful billowing main sail that can catch the maximum wind is just the right way. We are going to take you step by step through the basic meditation that hoists the main mast and unfurls the needed sails. First you need to understand that while the wind of Binah is constant it is not consistent as we explained in 25th Century Technology. Though wider than an ocean, it flows like a river with eddies, whirlpools and cross currents. Every thought, word and action we put forth ripples and reverberates throughout the vastness untethered by the limitations of either time or space or the frictions of motion. Eventually it meets up with like-minded thoughts of other people and puddles up in eddies of limiting consciousness and beliefs. Like a raft spinning in an eddy, there it stays stuck. When our consciousness is in the right place, the like forces it attracts line up behind us, pushing us ever faster forward and upward, lifting us like the concentrated wind beneath the wings of a 747. Like that rising massive jet, the natural forces of Binah allow us to take hundreds of like-minded passengers along for the ride.
When we do this meditation and meditate on healing someone, our thoughts, prayers, and positivity reach not just across the room, but echoe across the universe, across eternity. The healing we send out gets magnified thousands of times and comes back to us as we get sucked up into the winds. The same happens when we mediate properly on sending out unconditional love, or Moshiach consciousness into the world.
These meditations work best if you can play meditative music tuned to 432 Hz—plenty available on line. If not, you can sing or hum tuned to that frequency, or if you cannot, like me, just imagine it—it works just fine. Your consciousness does the driving, not the radio. We are going to break down Rabbi Shimon’s blueprints to their simplest form, removing the confusing language about the sefirot and columns. Believe me, it will be OK—in fact more than OK. People have already risen from their hospital beds and walked outside for the first time in months from having this meditation done on them just as I am explaining it here.
Start by imagining a single point, any dot or period at the end of the sentence will do. So you know, it is not just any dot, and if you can picture it as the 10 sefirot (dimensions) of Tohu (Nothingness) shattering and collapsing into the center of the primordial Aleph(א), it is even better. When these 10 were added to the 32 Paths of Wisdom of the Aleph(א), together they became 42, rolled up as One. To us, it was the beginning, the point at tip of the Big Bang from which all our physicality and spirituality unfolded. This meditation takes us and connects us to the very first few unfoldings of time, space and motion, when the light was at its most intense and physicality was at its purest, at a time and place before there were any limitations. Imagine how powerful an antenna would be made from these purest elements and what its reach would be if it was derived from the beginning of the beginning.
Imagine this point inside you. Bring into your core, a central place within your body that feels balanced. If you know breathing techniques use them. See this point expand into a single vertical line, tracing through you from your crown to your feet. This is the letter Vav (ו), the letter of connection. The point and the line work together, they comprise all the Hebrew vowels; they are the Yud (י) and the Vav (ו), collectively representing Keter, the highest point. Given the values of the two end points of the line and line itself, the total value of the line becomes 26, connecting us to the energetic value 26 of the Tetragrammaton (יהוה).
From here the line expands into a plane, a flat square drawn around you. This is represented by the Mem sofit (ם), and together the point, the line and the square plane spell the word Yom יום, or day, where time began. Together they have the gematria of “HaTorah, the Torah.”
Expand the square outward in all directions (front, back, up, down, sideways) until it becomes a stick figure cube that surrounds and encapsulates you. It is not a solid cube, but one comprised of transparent light. This cube, like all cubes, has 26 elements (6 faces, 12 edges, and 8 vertices), connecting us again to the value 26 of the Tetragrammaton (יהוה).
Begin your selfless meditation in earnest now. It could be a healing meditation through chanting the EL NA RFA NA LA (אל–נא–רפא–נא–לה), the prayer Moses used to heal his sister, or the by visualizing the MemHeiShin (מהש), the 5th of the 72 Names. It could a meditation of universal healing and peace, by sending out Unconditional Love, like the love you have for your children or whoever you love the most. Or It could be a meditation to send out the desire to share and spread Moshiach (Binah) consciousness to everyone everywhere.
Now imagine a new cube emerging from each of the faces of the original cube with their shared edges and sides joined together into a hypercube that encapsulates and forms around you. Each of the 72 edges has a different one of the 72 Names (Triplets) and each of the 42 faces has a different letter of the 42-Letter Name of G-d. Together they are your antenna and voice to Binah.
In case you were to have any doubts about the relationship between the 6 x 6 x 6 cube and/or the 216 letters in the 72 Names and the 42 letters in the 42 Letter Name, we have only to look at the first two words of the final portion of the 4th Book of the Torah, Numbers (Bamidbar). It lays out the 42 Journeys of the Israelites. Eleh Massey (אלה–מסעי), together their value is 216 and their ordinal value is 72. Together, they will help us collect the 288 fallen Holy sparks of Tohu, reunite it with the primordial Aleph(א) and bring about Moshiach (Binah) Consciousness to our world. As you know the first words of any portion are the seed level of that portion and they hold and project its secrets.
Project your voice and prayer through them, the 42-Letter Name and the 72 Names placed through the hypercube. The Arizal told us that no prayer can be elevated without the 42-Letter Name. Indeed, he said “nothing can be elevated without the 42-Letter Name. You do not need to place specific Names in specific locations throughout the hypercube. Meditating on the 72 Name chart and reciting the Ana B’koach (or the 42 Letters) will serve just fine. The Letters know where to go and will find their proper place on their own. Put the graphic of the charts here
Bonus Blessing Hidden Within the 42-Letter Name
There is a bonus inherent in the design of the 42-Letter Name: it auto-tunes to 432 HZ. When you take the first and last letters of that Name together, they spell (את), the first and last letter of the Hebrew alphabet, the beginning and the end. Together they have an ordinal value of 23, the same as the first 3 letters of the Torah and they have a standard value of 401, together that makes 401 + 23 = 424, the energetic value of Moshiach Ben David.
Now, if you recall the first and last words of the Torah בראשית ישראל that gave us the 432 HZ healing frequency sandwiched in the blessings (אשרי) (בלת) (אשרי), well the word before those two words is Kol (כל) and the word after those two is Bara (ברא), each of whom have the ordinal value of 23. When you couple that with the total of all the letters’ values through the 23rd letter (ך) of the alphabet being 2018, we get an idea what all the meditations are designed to bring us and when they will all come to fruition (2018 CE, 5778 HC). After all, it was in 2018 HC, that G-d made a covenant with Abraham to make us endless.
Nonetheless, the next two letters after the Aleph (א) and before the Tav (ת) in the 42-Letter Name are (בי) and when they are spelled out (Beit Yud) they represent “House of Israel” or ” House of Hashem” and total 412 + 20 = 432.
All this and all these connection play out for you. Without you having to do nothing more that recite the Ana B’koach and concentrate in the 42 letters. G-d has made it so very easy for us. The next two letters in the sequence (גצ) add up to 903, which is the sum of the integers from 1-42 while the following sequence (יו) when spelled out also equals 42, and the next two (תק), have a complete value of 541, that of Israel. It is a technology we do not need to understand. We just need to know that when it is engaged by our consciousness it can elevate us and our meditations to the level of Yetzirah (Creation) where the winds of Binah blow much stronger.
Now picture your prayers soaring outward in all direction, filling your room, building, city, country, world, solar system, the universe– with the radiant white light of unconditional love. Know that your thoughts are reaching the outer edges of eternity and the winds of Binah are filling your unfurled 4-dimensional sails. When you are ready to let go, you will soar, you will be free to do more good.
There will come a time soon enough when jettisoning those anchors and leaving the baggage behind will be easier. It will be like a flip in the poles, when momentarily the magnets to physicality will be turned off. The more practiced you are in hoisting your masts, unfurling your sails and catching the winds of Binah, the easier it will be for you.
Your Core – Point – Line – Cube – Hypercube – Binah
The Future Holy Temple
When we do the above mediation we are mimicking the process of the soon-to-manifest Future Holy Temple. According to the Ramchal, the Future Holy Temple is laid out as a grid of 9 squares like a tic-tac-toe board, each exactly 100 cubits square (1002) and in the center of this grid is the Altar of 32 cubits square(322). Look closely and you will see this exact pattern found in the center of the outlined hyper-cube illustrated above. Surrounding the 300 by 300 cubit grid is the 3000 by 3000 cubit Temple Mount. The edifice of the Holy of Holies Sanctuary is a perfect 100 by 100 by 100 cube located in the central Western quadrant of the grid and it is entered from the inner, central courtyard. This pattern is somewhat mimicked in our meditation of a square expanding to a cube.
The 7 giant gates of the Holy Temple each measure 50 cubits in height and 10 in width for a surface area of 50 x 10 = 500, representing the final Caf (ך), the 23rd letter in the Hebrew alphabet, which has a numerical value 500. This is the 23rd letter in the Alphabet and the sum of all the letters preceding and including the final Caf (ך) plus the kolel for the 23 letters is 2018. The height of 50 cubits connects each gate to the level of Binah as in the “50 Gates of Binah” and the 7 Gates mimic the 7 cubes of the hypercube in our meditation (1 original and 6 expanded ones).
According to the Arizal, “there is an angel of prayer, who elevates our prayers from the earth to heaven this being a journey of 500 years.” Each of those 7 gates are built into walls that are 6 cubits wide, just like the structure of the 42-Letter Name matrix (7 lines of 6 letters each). In total, the 7 gates represent taking 42 steps (or journeys) until we enter the Holy Sanctuary. Each ancient Holy cubit is 27.5 inches and our modern step (or stride) is 26.019 inches on average, coinciding with the value (26) of the Tetragrammaton (יהוה). If the 7 Gates were linked together physically they would form a tunnel 42 cubits in length and each step would cross another plane of increasing enlightenment, a separate journey of your soul. If you want to expand your mediation above, you can slowly picture each face of the 42 faces of the hypercube with the 42-Letters in sequence and picture yourself and your soul’s journey moving forward with each one. As you expand your enlightenment, keep in mind the global purpose that you are helping to manifest the Holy Temple on earth, you are opening up the 7 Gates for everyone.
Each plane is a supplication. The Arizal explained that Moses used the word vaetchanan (ואתחנן), meaning “I supplicate,” to describe his prayers with which to enter the promised land and thusly bringing about the Final Redemption (Geulah). The value of vaetchanan is 515 or the 500 years journey plus the Yud (י) and the Hei (ה) that got him there. Since Moses already knew the entire Bible story and our story by then, he knew the outcome of those prayers yet made them anyway to empower us as we go through the process and the Gates. Each gate represents the 500 square cubit plane, the Yud (י) width (10) times the Hei (ה) of Binah height (5), 515 in total. When we add the Vav (ו) depth of the wall (6), we find that each gate is defined by the יהו just like the meditations of the shaking of the Lulav on Sukkot, in which the Arizal instructs us to connect the 6 permutations (יהו יוה והי והי הוי היו) of the (יהו) with the 6 dimensions of a cube. The final Hei (ה) to complete the Tetragrammaton (יהוה) is found in the 5 (ה) similarly designed Gates of the Temple Mount’s outer wall.
If we were to add the 6 cubit depth to the 500 square cubit plane of each Gate, they would each equal 506. This is explained in The Genesis Prayer. It is the value of the first line (אבגיתץ) of the 42-Letter Name, and of its last 4 letters (וצית) and also the 4 letters before those (קשקו). 506 is also the numerical value of “unconditional love” and is the complete value of “Moshiach Ben David,” the two most important elements of our consciousness we have to have in mind when doing the above meditations. Furthermore, the 42-Letter Name when divided into the 14 triplets are collectively found 506 times in the Torah.
The 7 Gates, each 6 cubits in depth obviously correspond with the 7 levels of the 42-Letter Name matrix, and the shape of these Gates, 50 cubits high by 10 wide is not coincidentally reminiscent of an elevator shaft because that is what they are. They elevate us up to Binah of each of the 7 levels from Malchut, Yesod, Hod, Netzach, Tiferet, Gevurah and Chesed of Zeir Anpin, just like the 7 Clouds of Glory we connect with on Sukkot.
As it happens, each Gate has a volume of 10 x 50 x 6 or 3000, not only mimicking the Temple Mounts 3000 cubit x 3000 cubit design, but the total of the 7 Gates is thus 7 x 3000 = 21,000 cubits3, or יהו once again.
By the way, 21,000 times the length of the cubit, 27.5 inches is 577,500 inches and while 5778 is purposely 3 years shy of 5778 HC, 5775 inches is the exact height of the Great Pyramid (Joseph’s Pyramid) whose base perimeter is about 3000 feet. This is not a coincidence, but an article for another day.
Only the priests could actually enter the Sanctuary. However, once we metaphysically enter, it is 42 cubits (steps) to the gate of the Holy of Holies. This Gate, the Gate of 42, is 6 cubits by 7 cubits in dimensions. The High Priest would have to pass through the Gate or plane of 42 to actually enter the Holy of Holies. This is a pattern for us, for we have to surround ourselves with the 42 faces of the hypercube to harness Binah. When the 5 Gates of the Temple Mount are added to the 7 internal ones, we have 12 Gates, corresponding to the 12 tribes. Given that each Gate represents a journey of 500 years, collectively they are the 6000 years from the Aleph (א) to Moshiach and the final redemption. Summing the dimensions for the full Temple Mount we have 3000 for the Temple Mount, 300 for the Courtyards, 32 for the Altar and 6 representing the width of all the walls for a total or 3338, whose square root is 57.78. The sum value of 3338 is also the year the First Holy Temple was destroyed, 3338 HC.
Like we discovered with Eleh Massey and like the structure of the meditation above, we find that within the Future Holy Temple the faces/planes/gates are guided by the 42-Letter Name and the surrounding edges/borders/walls by the 72 Names in that the area of the walls of the Outer Courtyard is 7200 cubits and that of the Temple Mount walls are 72,000 cubits while the 10 corner cubes of 63 each have a total cubic volume of 2160.
Astonishingly the total volume of the walls of the Outer Courtyard and of the Temple Mount walls respectively are 43200 and 432,000, resonating to the frequency of Binah, 432 Hz.
Let’s go back to where we started our meditation, at the central point formed from the 10 collapsed sefirot of Tohu, represented by the Yud (י) and rolled up with the 32 Paths of Wisdom found in the primordial Aleph (א). They too are at the heart and core of the Future Holy Temple. So are the 10 sefirot and 32 Paths of Wisdom of the Tree-of-life that form our world of Tikkune. The 10 cubit tall central altar is a truncated 32 cubit square pyramid formed around a 10 x 10 x 10 core cubit cube or Yud (י)3. The pattern is clear: 32 Paths incorporating and forming around the 10 sefirot. Because 103 = 1000, it also represents the primordial Aleph (אלף) or eleph (אלף), meaning 1000. It also connects to and for similar reasons the Shema prayer which has exactly 1000 letters.
Once again, our meditation provided by R’ Shimon Bar Yochai mimics the Future Holy Temple in that our central point is the central point (Altar) of the Future Holy Temple. This point extends in a straight line along the path of 42, whereby we take 42 steps (cubits) from entering the Sanctuary until expanding along the plane of 42 as we enter the Holy of Holies. Further, the point expands 1000-fold from the 103 cubits of the Altar, which equals 1000 cubits3, to the 1003 cubits Temple building itself, which equals 1 million cubits3. Then the expansion is 1000-fold again to the hypercube, represented by the entire Future Holy Temple complex whose 3002 grid (90,000 cubits2) divided into nine 1002 sections of the Inner and Outer Courtyards. This expands to the 30002 Temple Mount (9,000,000 cubits2). In a similar manor the 32 square cubit Altar expands to the 3000 square cubit Temple Mount.
Thus as we expand our meditation from a compact central point to a cube, our powers to help and heal expand 1000-fold. When we expand it again to a hypercube they again expand another 1000-fold (!). The capacity to contain and affect enormous amounts of targets speaks of a Divinely engineered process. This is why at the beginning of the book of Devarim, Moses blesses us with a 1000-fold expansion. He was blessing us that we would one day be able to meditate properly to achieve Binah consciousness and manifest the Future Holy Temple.
If we do the meditation above with the proper consciousness then you will help manifest the Future Holy Temple at the central point on Earth, the Temple Mount in Jerusalem. The implication of this may be more than we can fathom at this time. However, HaShem is opening us up. If your consciousness is tuning into radio Binah, you are being called upon to do your part and help. We must all do what we are called to do, we must do whatever we can. Time is growing short and drawing near. Through the proper meditations and consciousness you signal your readiness and willingness. You amplify your powers to help. If HaShem is fine-tuning your consciousness, it is for a reason. Join in and engage it. HaShem needs for you to do your part. He needs for each of us to do our parts. This is why you were chosen. Do not question it; He does not make mistakes. Everyone today understands the power of a network—accept your invitation to join His.
