This is a more complete and vital explanation of the real Channukah menora and candles with important additional connections and information not explained in the prior post.
As discussed already in great detail, the design of the 72 Names (Triplets) matrix is extraordinarily complex. For example, the sum of the square roots of each of the 72 Triplets is 720.0 and the sum of the square roots of each of the 9 rows of 8 Triplets each is 280.0, together they equal 1000.0, connecting them all to Binah, the sefira (dimension) of limitless possibilities. As R’ Chaim Vital of blessed memory said, all Torah Light is spread through squaring. By examining the square roots of a Torah number, we are studying it one dimension deeper and closer to its source. Then by compiling connected Torah numbers or their sources, we are adding to their strength. When multiple additions, especially numerous ones, add up to a whole number beyond the decimal place the Creator is giving us a taste of certainty and of the perfection of the world to come, Binah understanding. Like when a chef prepares a scrumptious meal and begins with a tasting, an amuse bouche, it is meant to provoke a hunger inside us to desire more.
We have further discussed how within the 72 Triplets matrix there is a perfect 8 x 8 Triplet square that has a total numerical value for its 64 Triplets of 8000, meaning that each of the 8 columns has an average numerical value of 1000 each. In Kabbalah, the numbers 8 and 1000 both represent the hyperdimension of Binah, the 8th sefira. The value 1000 represents the completeness of the 3 columns of the Tree-of-life, or 103, and thus Binah, which is also why the Essential Elements of Creation are all presented as Triplets.
These 8 columns of 1000 with the 72 Names are akin to the 8 Channukah candles each connected to the river (Nachal) that flows from Binah into them. Above each is a single Triplet or flame, 8 flames in total. Each of the 8 columns or candles includes 8 Triplets or 24 letters, as in the 24 hours in a day. One day; one candle; one connection to Binah. Each letter conforms to a single hour. A proper meditation would pause at each letter and Triplet for each Candle lit. Start from the top like a candle.
The Hebrew word for flame (להבה), not only is structurally similar to the word for love, Ahava (אהבה), meaning love, but it has the numerical value 42. By the way, the ordinal value of the Alef(א) of Ahava (אהבה) and the Lamed(ל) of (להבה) together is 13, as in Love and Oneness(אחד). Like the sequential 13 – 42 – 55 number of Alefs(א) that are initials in the Shema, as previously discussed in depth, there are 30 Lameds(ל) as initials in the 248 words and 1000 letters of the Shema.
In these days more than ever it is important to keep in my what we revealed in chapter 29, that the deep secret of “The Tree in the middle of the Garden” from Genesis 3:3 is that its initials spell out Love: Ahava (אהבה).
Just as the word for flame (להבה) has a value of 42, the initial of the same word (להבה) is Lamed(ל) with a complete value of 42, and Lamed(ל) is the letter that not only looks like a dancing flame but is representative of Binah since it is the only letter that goes up and beyond the upper base of the 27 letters. The letter Lamed(ל) is also not coincidentally the first letter of L’hadleek from the Channukah blessing, meaning to ignite. The next two initials in the Channukah blessing, as pointed out by the Arizal, spell ner(נר), candle. The 3 initials with a collective vale of 280 spell out a candle with its flame.
The 8 candles of Channukah each have flames of 42.
The ordinal value of the word flame is 24, as is the complete value of the back of the word for flame (להבה), signifying the 24 hours in One day. As with the menorah (chanukiyah) in the days of the Maccabees, the flame burns 24 hours a day.
The 8 candles of Channukah have flames of 42 that last for 8 days or 24 hours each.
All 8 flames have a value of 336, as in the 336 letters of the 112 Triplets of Creation, including the 72 Names, the 11 Triplets of Bereshit, the 42-Letter Name, and the 15 Triplets of the Shema that conceal the Upper 42 Letters of the Name.
How do we know that this is not just our own projections? The Creator left us very specific signs. He wanted us to have complete certainty. The square root of 8000 is 89.4427… with 89 being the value of Channukah (חנוכה) and 44 being the ordinal value of Channukah and the number of candles lit on Channukah. Moreover, the sum of the square roots of the 8 candles—each of the 8 decapitated Triplet columns—is 250.44… with 250 being the value of candle (נר) and 44 being the number of candles lit on Channukah.
The first row in the 72 Triplets becomes the 9th candle, the shamash, or required helping candle critical to the lighting and Channukah process. It is required to sit above the other 8, which must all be on the same level. There are 8 Triplets in the row, just like the other 8 candles, and this first row’s full value is 1143, or 1000, representing Binah, and 143, the value of the aspect of Ehyeh (אלף־הא־יוד־הא), also representative of Binah. As explained previously, the value 1143 is independently special because the Creator designed it to be 1/8th the full value (9143) of the 72 Triplets. It is further designed as the sum of 1000 (Binah) and 143 (Binah). The square root of 1000 plus the square root of 143 plus the square root of 42 for the flame is 50.0618, as in the 50 gates of Binah. Therefore, all 9 candles connect to the hyperdimensional metaphysical energy of Binah, the source of potentiality. This is why the 9 flames total (9 x 42) = 378, the numerical value of chashmol, the electricity of the angels. Moreover, as discussed many times already, it is the value of “Echad Ushmo Echad, His Name is One,” and 378 is the sum of the ordinal value of the 27 or 33 letters of the Alef-bet and 27 positions of the Essential Cube of Creation, the Magical Cube of 42.
The value 1143 for the first row or 9th candle, the shamash, is especially designed so that over the 8 days of Channukah, the total value of this candle, which is lit 8 times, is (8 x 1143) = 9143, that of the entire 72 Triplet/Name matrix.
The chanukiyah of 8 candles with one above the 8 is in actuality the 72 Triplets. It consists of 8 candles and a 9th one above them. It existed before Creation and was encoded into the Torah over 1000 years before the Maccabees. Over the course of the 8 day cosmic window of Channukah, we can properly ignite the Light of all 72 Triplets and connect them through their flames to the Primordial 42. It is the Light of Moshiach (Ohr H’Ganuz) that last 8 days, not the oil. This connection existed for us since the beginning of time. Like us today, the Maccabees were directed to it at just the right moment.
The first or uppermost letter in each of the 9 candles (האלהימההו) sums to exactly 107, as in the sum of the integers from 1 – 107 that equals 5778, the year the cosmic window of Moshiach opened and with it the event horizon. When we add 107 to 9143, we get 9250 or 9 candles (נר) of numerical value 250 each.
Every Letter that is ignited in the 8 candles has an average value of 42. The 64 Triplets of 3 letters each have a combined value of 8000 and (8000 + 64)/(64 x 3) = 42. If we divide 8000/(64 x 3) the difference from 42 is .333, the value for darkness, H’choshech (החשך). The value 42, connecting to the Names of 42 and the Infinite or Endless 42, is the Light that overcomes the darkness.
This is an unprocessed moment. We are at the final tipping point and this of all Channukot the Creator has given us this wonderful cosmic gift, unwrapping the power of the cosmic chanukiyah and the flames of the ether, to restore order, stop the false reset, and ignite freedom and Moshiach Consciousness.
In the last chapter in our series, with the guidance of the Creator we showed that Love and Oneness were the keys to igniting the kavannot, Names and Triplets. In this special excerpt, with the help of the Creator we have given you the first set of schematics for applying that Love and Oneness. The Creator has provided the cosmic window. The rest is up to each of us to do our part.
Please make your connections accordingly. Let us all light the candles with Love and Oneness and the correct intentions in these most important days of all. Here are previous Channukah connections.
