The Power of the Shofar Blasts


Before the shofar blowings we should all do the full 42-Letter Name mediation/connection. As the Arizal advised, no prayer gets elevated without it.  The connections to Rosh Hashannah and the shofar blowings in particular are even more profound.


The second tier of the 7-tier 42-Letter Name means to tear out satan, the advocate whom we all face daily, but officially on Yom Terua, Rosh Hashannah. Just as the fiery serpent built into the 42-Letter Name is the antidote to the serpent’s venom, this second line/tier of the Matrix is the antidote to satan and to our evil inclinations that are our undoing.

Yom Terua is about overcoming, side-stepping, and removing the judgments against us, personally and collectively. The shofar creates specific frequencies in specific vortex patterns that confuse the advocate and disrupt the process of applying those judgements to us. With the proper meditations we can always enhance the effect of the shofar blowing, especially if the one blowing it does not know the proper kavannot.

Rabbi Isaac Luria, the Arizal, explains some of the connections built into the shofar (שופר).

One of the deeper secrets revealed by the cosmic ciphers, in particular the same complete 2πϕ cipher that gave us 5778 for the entire Alef-bet, gives us 1009 for shofar (שופר), the sofit value for the advocate, satan (שטן), and half of 2018, the Western Calendar analogue to 5778 HC, the Spherical Time radius and Event Horizon.

Another telling cosmic cipher, the Primes cipher, gives a value to shofar (שופר) of 216, as in the Gevurah, which makes sense given that the shofar (שופר) is our tool to mitigate the severe judgement of Gevurah of Atik Yomin.

Moreover, the Arizal explains that judgement is triply associated with the shofar (שופר). The Name Elohim (אלהים) is associated with the process of natural and cosmic judgement, and through the letters in shofar (שופר) and of the second tier (קרעשטן) of the 42-Letter Name Matrix.  The value of the Name Elohim (אלהים) is 86 (פו), as in the middle letters of shofar (שופר). The milui or spelled-out Name Elohim (אלף־למד־הי־יוד־מם) has a value of 300, as in the letter Shin (ש) in shofar (שופר) and in (קרעשטן). Finally, the regressive, or squared value for the Name Elohim (א־אל־אלה־אלהי־אלהים) is 200, as in the letter Resh (ר) of shofar (שופר) and in (קרעשטן). And while the first three (אלף־למד־הי) spelled-out letters in the Name Elohim (אלף־למד־הי־יוד־מם) have a value of 200, the last two (יוד־מם) have a value of 100 as in the first two letters (קר) in (קרעשטן).

The two final letters (פר) in shofar (שופר) have the value 280, which “signify the 5 states of Gevurah indicated by the [5 final letters] (םןץףך) that are awakened from Binah.”

As for the first two letters (שו) in shofar (שופר) that equal 306, the Arizal adds the value of the hand, yad (יר), that holds it to come up with a value of (306 + 14) = 320. We, of course, know the value 14 as the central position in the Essential Cube of Creation and Spherical Time and to be representative of the 14 Triplets of the 42-Letter Name Matrix.

The Holy Ari explains that these “are the 320 sparks, which are awakened from “the candle of darkness.”  That central 14th position in the Essential Cube of Creation has a complete numerical value of 64, as in the ordinal value of shofar (שופר), and as in the numerical value of din (דין), judgement. The five final letters (םןץףך) represent the 5 judgements and 5 times din (דין) or (5 x 64) = 320.

These 320 Holy Sparks are also found in the Torah in that the cube root of the gematria sofit of the entire Torah is 320.0238, or 320 plus 1/42.

The better we understand the cosmic connections the more effective they are for us. What the connections are showing us is that the vortices of the shofar (שופר) extend from the center of the Essential Cube of Creation and extend through the North face of the Cube since all 4 letters in (שופר) are found in that face, the direction of judgement.  We are warned to beware of a wind from the North; in this case, the wind is going in the opposite direction, negating that judgement.

The first two letters (שו) in shofar (שופר) also have an ordinal value of 27 (כז) and a complete value of 333, and like the 27 letters of the Alef-bet and the 27 positions of the 33 Essential Cube of Creation, whose Triplets in every plane, axis, face, and diagonal equal 42, the 100 blasts of the Shofar are always supposed to be 27 beats. Likewise, they are sub-divided into 3 sets of 9 (ט) individual or collective beats, then at specific intervals those 9 are divided into 3 sets of 3 beats each.


The 9th letter Tet (ט) has a composite value (כז) of 27. We know this from the Arizal, who further connects all the beats to the second tier of the 42-Letter Name of numerical value 729 or 272, which equals 9 x 9 x 9, which equals 3 x 3 x 3 x 3 x 3 x 3.

As the vortex swirls out of the shofar, each blast carries with it specific commands encoded and guided by the corresponding letters of the Alef-bet, set in Triplets, just like the 3-letter roots of Hebrew words.

The 3 types of blasts are Tekia (תקעיה), Terua (תרועה), and Shevarim (שברים).  They are all found concealed within the first two tiers of the 42-Letter Name Matrix. The blast of Tekia (תקעיה) is a straight 9 beats longs, 3 continuous turns of the vortex. The root of Tekia (תקעיה) is 57 and its standard value is 570. The letters in Tekia (תקעיה) that are set aside are the Yah (יה) of the YHVH (יהוה).

The Arizal explains that the value 570 is the same as that of eser (עשר), meaning 10, also found in this tier.

We are supposed to mediate during the Tekia blasts that those 10 are multiplied by the 15 of the Name Yah (יה). “Intend to elicit the 150 lights from Abba, who is associated with the Name Yah (יה),” drawing down the Light from Binah to Zeir Anpin, the 6 dimensions of processing to Nukva, the projection of physicality.

The Shevarim (שברים) blast consists of 3 bursts of 3 beats each, or 3 pulses, each one a turn of the vortex, a turn of the Phi(φ) angle (137.5o), as in the 1375 collective value of the last 3 tiers of the 42-letter Name Matrix.

The root of Shevarim (שברים) is likewise encoded in the first two tiers:

The complete value of Shevarim (שברים) is 618 as in 1/Phi(φ). This is cosmically the reason that during the 3 Shevarim (שברים) blasts we should have in mind the states of severe judgment situated in the narrow straights of our throats.  The two letters (ים) not incorporated in the 42-Letter Name from those of Shevarim (שברים) represent the sea (ים) of Binah, as this is where the judgement resides.

We are supposed to carry that thought into the 9 quick 1 beat blasts of Terua (תרועה) to sweeten these judgements. The Shevarim (שברים) break them up and the Terua (תרועה) sweeten them.

The root of Terua (תרועה) is likewise found in the first two tiers of the 42-Letter Name Matrix.

This time the 2 letters not incorporated are the (וה) of the YHVH (יהוה), and between the (יה) of Tekia (תקעיה), and the (וה) of Terua (תרועה) we have the complete YHVH (יהוה), our support in Zeir Anpin. To sweeten those judgements, we should meditate on the two sets of 3 tiers each of the 42 Letters of the Name (יהוה), as we draw the power of the blast through the throat, the vav (ו) or 6 dimensions of Zeir Anpin that create the realm of physicality.


The Arizal explains, “These are the two drops of 42-letters situated in Binah, that is, in the throat.” These correspond to the two aspects of the YHVH (יהוה) that correspond to Chochma and Binah, Av (72) and Sag (63).

Tekia – Shevarim-Teruah-Tekia

Tekia – Shevarim- Tekia


The different blasts are produced in specific sets that are then divided into 3 different combination blasts that all begin and end with Tekia (תקעיה), whose ordinal value is 72, as the Name YHVH (יוד־הי־ויו־הי) associated with Chochma, which is why we are drawing the light down from Abba during these blasts.  In each of the 3 sets of combinations the encasing frequency of Tekia (תקעיה) totals (6 x 72) = 432, as in the 432 Hz frequency of Binah, as previously explained.

The ordinal value of the 4 inner blasts of the 10 have a collective ordinal value of 278, that of Ohr HaGanuz, the Light of Moshiach.

What is this like? It is akin to the inner central letter Nun (נ) of Binah, surrounded by the 6 sides/directions of Zeir Anpin in the Essential Cube of Creation. Remember, in the true nature of the universe everything spreads from a singularity or singular central point outwards. What we view from our physical perspective of top down is in actuality, from inside to out.

This is also why the shofar blasts need to stem from the heart, lev (לב) of numerical value 32 outward and through the 32 teeth of the mouth, as explained by the Arizal, to awaken the 320 Holy Sparks, and sweeten the 5 din (דין) judgements, (5 x 64) = 320.

The collective ordinal value of the 10 blasts with the kolel (10) is 720, as in the sum of the square roots of the 72 Triplets (720.0) and as in the second tier of the 42-Letter Name Matrix:

If you recall, the sum of the square roots of the 9 (ט) rows of those same 72 Triplets is 280.0, as in the 5 final letters (םןץףך) or 5 judgements and (280.0 + 720.0) = 1000.0 or the Alef (אלף) of Binah.

As taught to us by Abrahma Avinu, 720 is 6! or factorial (6 x 5 x 4 x 3 x 2 x 1), representing the power of the 10 shofar blasts over the 6 bundled dimensions of Zeir Anpin and the process of physicality.

These 3 (ג) combinations of 10 (י) distinct blast types are illustrated in the first tier of the 42-Letter Name for a total of 30 blasts or 90 (צ) beats.

Since this set of 30 blasts or 90 (צ) beats is repeated 3 times in each complete set during the Shofar blowings, each set consists of (3 x 90) = 270 beats, as in the Hebrew word for evil, ra (רע) found in the 2nd tier of the 42-letter Name Matrix.

The 3 (ג) sets are used to mitigate the judgements we have caused to our physical process and our spiritual progress through idol worship, bloodshed, and incest or adultery in both the literal and liberal figurative sense. All 3 sets occur just before and during the musaf prayers. They all include thoughts and naturally actions, aggressive, passive, and imagined, so just because you did not kill anyone does not let you off the hook. Incest includes all sexual aberrations, fantasies, and porn. And just about anything you covet or are addicted to can be idol worship.  None of us escape the process. These are 90 (צ) blasts in total:

There is one additional set of 10 (י) afterwards at the kadish. This is to mitigate and annihilate the evil inclination toward lashon hara including slander, including tweets, texts, and all forms of media and social media. Altogether that makes 100 (ק) blasts or 900 (ץ) beats:

The large (long) final blast of 27 beats after the prayers, the 101st (קא) unites all the blasts as One.

As One and united with the One, we are strong.  The candle of darkness cannot stand up against the 13 Candles of Creation that are the 112 Essential Triplets of the Torah. The value of the 3 types of blasts Tekia (תקעיה), Terua (תרועה), and Shevarim (שברים) together equals 1818, as in the 3 iterations (expansions) of the Letter meaning One, Alef (א), 1818. They also equal the average complete value of the 112 Triplets since 20,358/112 = 181.8, the same proportion as the Letter Caf (כ) representing the Sun, and as the letter Tav (ת), representing the Moon, 20/11 = 1.818 and 400/22 = 18.18 respectively.

The 7 controlling/guiding letters of the 7 planets, or fate, as taught to us by the Patriarch Abraham, have a collective value of 709, which is also found at the end (טן) of the 42-Letter Matrix’ second tier.

That complete value of the 336 letters in the 112 Triplets, 20,358, which includes the value of Moshiach, 358, is composed of their standard collective value 16,965 plus their collective ordinal value 3393.  That complete value of the 112 Triplets that includes their ordinal values (3393) is 20,358, which is exactly 6 x 3393, as in the process of the 6 bundled sefira (dimensions) of Zeir Anpin.  The complete value of the 336 letters in the 112 Triplets is 6 times their ordinal value (20,358/3393 = 6) and the average per letter is (3393/336) = 10.09 as in 2018 CE/2, and as in their ability to overcome satan (שטן), 1009, one of those Triplets, and with the right understanding, the 1009 complete 2πϕ value for shofar (שופר).

The 112 Triplets of the Torah are 111 or Alef (אלף) plus one, and they are what ride the vortices of the shofar to confuse the advocate, that one. Like Balaam who tried to use the 42-Letter Name to curse the Israelites and wound up blessing them so too can happen with the advocate when he is bound to it.
