The Magen David or Star of David is far more than a symbol. Structured properly, it can be a tremendous amulet of protection and channel to enlightenment, and all one has to do is wear it, embrace it, believe in it, and try to understand it to the best of their abilities. The more one understands it, the greater the power of protection and the Aspects of the Creator that can flow through it, yet simple belief and faith is enough to activate its potential. It can be as powerful as the Merkava and the Bird’s Nest for those that understand. It behooves us to learn as much as we can about it, then concentrate and spread our meditations and prayers to all who wear the Magen David and live under its flag and ideals. We can and need to project the protection and empowerment to them and to all Israel. The more people who do it the more the Star will be charged. The Israelis are doing their part under the most extreme conditions and Jews and especially Jewish students are suffering under increasingly more aggressive threats; we must do our part. There is no place in the Torah were the Creator advises us to sit back, dig in, and play defense in the face of evil and our adversaries. There is no place where anyone is advised to sit still. On the contrary, we are constantly implored to be proactive and seek out change and victory. The evil in the world has never been stronger but we can do something about it Metaphysics is the link and understanding of true and greater consciousness, the grasping of what is beyond the perceived physicality. To more fully understand this, we need to comprehend the significance of the higher Names of the Creator in the cosmology of our existence. For anyone who has not been following our articles and writings there will be many foreign concepts in this one. They should not impede your overall understanding and you can find them explained throughout our writings at kabbalahsecrets.com. The 6 bundled dimensions of Zeir Anpin that feed into, and form physicality and our existence are under the auspices or network of the Creator in the Concept of the Name YHVH (יהוה). The term Concept is used at this level because like the 4 Sets or 112 Triplets embedded in the Torah, including the Names of 42 Matrices and the 72 Name Matrix, all the Names of the Creator are beyond the power to transmit of Hebrew Letters, which while being the first and the One language are far more endowed than any other language are still just the interface to consciousness and not consciousness itself. Thus, they are dimensionally derivative of the Aspects/Concepts which remain beyond our comprehension. Above the vast intricate hyperspace network of Zeir Anpin is a super network of consciousness under the auspices of the Creator in the Concept of the Name Ehyeh (אהיה). It is called Binah, the realm of Understanding and universal consciousness. Just as the letters or initials are derived from their higher dimensional versions of the Names the way a cube collapses dimensionally into a square, these Holy Names, or super-construct Divine Concepts of higher consciousness, have spelled-out (milui) forms that are dimensionally higher and thus more potent and impactful within the universal consciousness and likewise upon our perceived physical existence. Beyond the Hebrew language lies the cosmic mathematics and geometry of consciousness and hyperspace. Like a cube or circle, the Magen David is a geometric shape projected into our world from higher dimensions. It is divided into 6 outer triangular points and 6 inner ones that point to the center and form a central hexagon. Like the 6 days of Creation, the two sets of 6 equilateral triangles represent the 6 dimensions of the Creation of physicality. The set of the outer 6 triangles represents Binah over Zeir Anpin and the inner set of 6 represents the bundled 6 dimensions of Zeir Anpin itself. The central point is the 13th as in the numerical value of Echad, meaning One. Alternatively, it is the 7th to the inner 6 triangles, representing the position of Malchut in the schematic of the Tree-of-Life. To us they are triangles from the aspect of the cosmos they are coordinates in hyperspace consciousness, kind of how our minds stumble upon a thought and somehow know where to access it again. All 12 triangles of the Magen David together represent the unity of the 12 Tribes of Israel as delineated specifically in the Torah. We will prove and get back to that shortly but first we must address the Aspects of the Upper Concepts. When the Name Ehyeh (אהיה) of Binah is spelled out it is arranged in 3 distinct forms corresponding to the 3 levels of Binah consciousness and the 3 equal sides of a triangle. There is no triangle like that floating off in space, but there is an equidistant relationship between these 3 networks of Names somewhere in the fields of consciousness. The lower 2/3 or .666 of the dimension of Binah consciousness is represented by the 2 expanded Names Ehyeh (אלף־הה־יוד־הה) and (אלף־הא־יוד־הא) of numerical values 151 and 143 respectively. Over the 6 outer triangles they equal 6(151 + 143) = 422, as in the Singularity and Source of 42 squared. As Rabbi Chaim Vital of blessed memory explained, all Torah light is spread through squaring and squaring represent radiance. Numbers are the letters in the language of the conscious cosmos and the operations between them are the grammar. Within the relationships portrayed in simple equations are conveyed a wealth of information and understanding. This is why the Hebrew language was designed as a direct interface to the cosmic numbers long before man had much use for counting. All three higher Names of Binah over the 6 triangles collectively equal 6(161 + 151 + 143) = (6 x 455) = 2730 and 2/3 or .666 of 2730 is 1820, as in the 1820 YHVH (יהוה) in the Torah. Reflectively, the 1820 YHVH (יהוה) in the Torah represent 2/3 or .666 of the consciousness of Binah. The multiplication by 6 is the representation and manifestation of the 6 dimensions of Zeir Anpin, represented by the Magen David. It is the same idea behind the 6 directions in a cube and why there are 26 elements to every cube as in the numerical value of the YHVH (יהוה), especially the Magical Essential Cube of Creation of Constant 42 that houses the 27 letters of the Alef-Bet. These concepts and relationships with 455, 1820 and with 42 circles back to the concept of the Path of One (1 + 13 + 91 + 455 + 1820) whose total is 2380, which is equivalent to 1/42, the Singularity. Its component 455 is the sum of the 3 levels of Binah in the Name Ehyeh (אהיה): (161 + 151 + 143) = 455 or 2730/6. For reference, One in Hebrew is Echad of numerical value 13 and the sum of One (1) to 13 is 91, the 13th Triangular Number, while the sum of 1 to 91 is 455, the 91st Triangular Number, and the sum of 1 to 455 is 1820, the 455th Triangular Number, and 1820 is the sum of the integers from 26 to 65, representing the numerical values of the Name YHVH (יהוה) and its counterpart Adonai (אדני) respectively, while the average value of the 40 integers between 26 and 65 is 45.5, as in the 455 sum of the 3 Aspects of the Name Ehyeh (אהיה). As for 2730, it is the Cosmic Harmonic, found in the ratio of the square to the inscribed circle (4/π), which is also the ratio of the Earth and Moon to the Earth. It is also found in the Moon’s 27.3 days revolutionary period around the Earth and its’ 27.3 day rotational (sidereal) period with respect to the stars; the diameter of the Earth over the diameter of the Moon, or 1/.272727 = 3.666…, as in 1/.273; the Apparent Magnitude or brightness of the Full Moon (- 12.73); and the 401273 quantitative elements (words, verses, letters, rows, and columns) in the Torah, along with the year 1273 BCE (2488 HC) when the Israelites entered Israel, which in turn is aligned with the circumference of the Earth, 24881 miles. It is also Absolute Zero (-273o C) or 273 K, the freezing point of water; the 11-year sunspot cycle that is split into 27.3-day revolution periods, just like the average value for the 11 Triplets of Creation, 3003/11 = 273, that are hidden in the first 33 letters of the Torah. That is the same 27.3 days that our Moon orbits the Earth, and that it spins around with respect to the stars, 27.3 days; and it is also the cosmic microwave background (CMB) radiation in the universe (2.73 K). So no, the figures 1820 and 2730 for the 6 outer triangles of Binah are not arbitrary; they are metaphysical, and without them there would be no physicality. So yes, that cosmic equidistant relationship between the Names in the hyperspace consciousness levels of Binah are quite critical for our existence, and even our knowledge and acknowledgement of them is a gift beyond imagination or appreciation. Moreover, while, the 182 in 1820 is the numerical value of Jacob, and the 238 in 2380 is that of Rachel, the inverse of the sum of the ratios of the various components in the Path of One to the Cosmic Harmonic 2730 or 1/(1/2730 + 13/2730 + 91/2730 + 455/2730 + 1820/2730) = 1.1470, which also means it equals 0ne (1) over Rachel (238) over the Cosmic Harmonic or 1/(238/273) = 1.1470, which fits the Biblical narrative perfectly since Jacob, her beloved husband and the father of the 12 Tribes, lived 147 years. The value 1147 is also the 6th Pronic Prime Number, (31 x 37), while 143—the value of the Name Ehyeh (אלף־הא־יוד־הא)—is the 3rd Pronic Prime Number (11 x 13) and the number 6 is the 1st Pronic Prime Number (2 x 3). In the metaphysical or true universe of integrated consciousness, everything is networked together in overlapping circuitry and those specific Pronic Prime Number components (1 + 3 + 6) + (2 + 3 + 11 + 13 + 31 + 37) = 107, as in the 107th Triangular Number, 5778, the Spherical Time Event Horizon (5778 HC) and the surface temperature of the Sun, 5778 K; and as in the location of the 10 Commandments at the 107,007th letter of the Torah and the 420th of the 1820 YHVH (יהוה). Naturally, the 7th Pronic Prime Number, 1763 or (41 x 43) is (422 – 1), once again as in the lower 2/3 of the 6 outer triangles of Binah or 6(151 + 143) = 422. In the simple schematic there are 6 outer triangles and an inner 7th geometric central axes forming the hexagon or shield, and while (6 x 151), the value of the 6 Names Ehyeh (אלף־הה־יוד־הה) equals 906, the exact value of the 7th line/level/row/rung of the 42-Letter Name Matrix, the gematria value of the Shield of David or Magen David is 107 like the total distance of the planets in our solar system from the Sun, 107 AU, and the surface temperature of the Sun, the 107th Triangular Number. So, while it may be a mystery to the scholars where the Magen David came from it is no mystery metaphysically, or who gifted it us. Each of the 3 expanded Names Ehyeh , (אלף־הי־יוד־הי), (אלף־הה־יוד־הה), and (אלף־הא־יוד־הא) metaphysically represents an edge length of the Magen David as it is projected into our world and existence. But this is just a projection or collapse from a higher dimension whereby those triangles are each Tetrahedra, the real pixel of our existence. The 3 sides of each of the 6 outer triangles of the Magen David are nothing more than the bottom triangle of the 6 Tetrahedra of the Name Ehyeh (אהיה). The numerical value of the Name Ehyeh (אהיה) is 21, like the ordinal position of the Hebrew letter Shin (ש), and the 21 cumulative exponential (1.313x) values from Alef (א) through Shin (ש) equal 1273.066066, as in the Cosmic Harmonics (1.273 and 273) and as in 2730 with .666. Moreover, while 1820 goes into the Cosmic Harmonic (2730) exactly 1.5 times, and 455 goes into 2730 exactly 6 times, the next value in the Path of One, 91, goes into it 30 times while 13 goes into it 210 times, as in the 210 years of exile and the 7th value in the Path of 5 that also leads to 1820, specifically in its 13th step, and as in the 20th Triangular Number (210). All together the 4 components of the Path of One go into 2730, the Cosmic Harmonic, (1.5 + 6 + 30 + 210) = 247.5 times or precisely (9 x 27.5 Hz), the Primal Frequency (27.5 Hz), and as in the Major Second (M2) or 247.5 Hz on our standard musical scale. Given that the Names associated with the 3 edges of the upper Tetrahedra are repeated on its bottom face, each Tetrahedron has a total edge value of (2 x 455) = 910, representing the 6 Names of the expanded Name of Binah, Ehyeh (אהיה). This in turn gives the 6 outer Tetrahedra the value of (6 x 910) = 5460, or 318 less than 5778, representing the Sun and the Event Horizon of Spherical Time. That value 318 may represent the 318 men that Abraham (248) took into battle and/or the 5 initials (נרנחי) of the 5 parts of the soul that sum to 318 and/or the 248 dimensions of the E8 symmetry of consciousness plus the 70 branches (nations) of the Tree-of-Life, and/or the initials of the final three lines of the 42-Letter Name Matrix (שיח) whose value is 318. The value 318 is also the sum of the Names of Joseph (156) and Binyamin (162), the two sons of Rachel (238) and Jacob (182), related metaphysically and conceptually to the Path of One and that equal (238 + 182) = 420, as in the cosmic Singularity and Source of 42 and the 420 YHVH (יהוה). Likewise, the 6 inner Tetrahedra that form the inner hexagon of the Magen David have edges constructed of the 3 Names of the expanded YHVH (יהוה) in the Aspects of Av, Sag, and Mah within the construct of Zeir Anpin that equal (72 + 63 + 45) = 180. Therefore, the 6 edges of the inner Tetrahedra have a value individually of (2 x 180) = 360 and collectively of (6 x 360) = 2160, which is the diameter of the Moon, 2160 mi. It is also equivalent to the collective (12 x 3 x 60o) = 2160o of the Magen David. Meanwhile the 12 Tetrahedra have (12 x 3 x 4 x 60o) = 8640o as in the 864,000 mi diameter of the Sun. Then when we add the 6 outer Tetrahedra with the 6 inner Tetrahedra of the cosmic Magen David we get (5460 + 2160) = 7620 as in 7 dimensions and Keter (620). When we add 300 to it, as in 6 times the 50 Gates of Binah and as in the 50-cubit height of the Gates of Binah in the Future Holy Temple, or alternatively as in the expanded Name Elohim (אלהים) of numerical value 300, we get (7620 + 300) = 7920, the diameter of the Earth, 7920 mi. The value 620 is also the square root of 6202 or 384,400, as in the 384,000 km distance between the Earth and the Moon. To note, the addition (300 + 318) of the Sun and Earth alignments within the Magen David equal 618, as in 1/Phi (φ), the mathematical constant or field at the center of the Spherical Time paradigm and the cosmic radiance throughout the conscious universe. It should also be noted that the value 50 also represents the difference between the Names of the 6 Tribes associated with the outer Tetrahedra and the 6 Tribes associated with the inner 6, Tetrahedra as delineated in the matrix of the two juxtaposed censuses of the Torah, (1870 – 1820) = 50.

In the center of the cosmic Magen David is the 4th Aspect (Ban) of the 4 Aspects of the YHVH (יהוה). The arrangement of the Higher Names or Concepts within the Magen David mirror the kavannot for the wavings of the 4 species on Sukkot as explained by the Arizal. We should not let the term “direction” confuse us, nor in what direction the Names are facing because in the hyperdimensions there are no directions as we perceive them and the Names exist there as forces and Concepts and not as physical ink on paper. The Names there face all directions and possibilities at once and it is the relationships between the Names and Concepts and forces and fields and networks that is important within the consciousness. In our minds we can hold a thought, some longer than others, but that thought has no direction. We can examine it from any aspect if we allow ourselves. We can take it apart, rearrange and permute it, do anything we want with it, yet it is still there in its original form just floating out there in a space we cannot comprehend. It is the relationships and similarities that we should be focusing on. For example, the 6 letters Yud (י) that come together in the center of the metaphysical Magen David have a collective value of 60 as in the value of the Hebrew letter Samech (ס), of which there are 1833 in the Torah, or 13 (Echad) more than 1820. Through the midpoint in the 42-Letter Name Matrix the cumulative value of the first 21 letters is likewise 1833, metaphysically aligning the 42-Letter Name Matrix with the Magen David. The average of the 7 Triplets that make up those first 21 letters is 261.8 or 100 times Phi(φ)2. The 2nd half of the 42 letters equal 1868 and (1868 + 2) = 1870, as in the 2nd set of the 6 Tribes, associated with the 6 Names that most immediately surround the central 6 Yuds (י) and the 60o in every angle of the Magen David. This is in the same manner that the 4th Aspect (Ban) of the 4 Aspects of the YHVH (יהוה) is utilized and activated when we do the return stroke of the waving action at our hearts on Sukkot. It is represented or repeated 6 times for the 6 directions of Zeir Anpin at the center of the central hexagon, giving it a total value of (6 x 52) = 312, like the 312-cubit length of the Outer Courtyard of the Future Holy Temple, as prescribed by the Ramchal. The 12 initials of the 12 Tribes sum to 628 or 2 Pi (π), yet another indication of Divine intent. There are always a multitude of metaphysical reasons for every word, letter, and number in the Torah, yet whenever Divine Intent is stressed or strengthened, it is an invitation for us to look closer and grow closer to the Creator. When we place the Tribes of the two assigned groups into the order of their Name’s numerical values the 3rd lowest value goes to Reuven and Zebulun Tribes respectively and together they equal (259 + 95) = 354. Likewise, when we place them in order of their highest census count at the end of the 40 years, the 3rd lowest count goes to the same pair, Reuven and Zebulun, so it must be intentional that their sum, 354, is equal to the Lunar year or (12 x 29.5) = 354 days. This may hint to their pairing together in the Cosmic Wheel and in the aligned outer and inner Tetrahedra of the Cosmic Magen David, especially since the 12 annual Moons align with the 12 points of the Star of David and since the final letters in one of the two sets of 6 Tribes also equals 354. According to Abraham Avinu, we look to the planets not for divination but for mazal. Another notable possible obvious pairing are the Tribes of Gad and Yehuda at the numerical values (7 + 30) = 37, a number we know to be at the core of the Torah and of our DNA, and especially of the Torah’s first verse of numerical value 2701 or (37 x 73) with 2701 being the 73rd Triangular Number and whose last two words equal 703, the 37th Triangular Number and whose two components take the form of centered Star of David with 73 overall and 37 in the central hexagon, while 37 itself is also a Star Number. Moreover, like the first two Star Numbers 1 and 13–harking back to the Concept of Echad (One)–the other natural Star Numbers include 1, 13, 37, 73, 121, 181, 253…541…. with 181 being the 42nd Prime Number, and most fittingly, the number 541 is the numerical value of Israel, the 10th Star Number. Then there are Dan and Asher at (54 + 501) = 555; Benyamin and Shimon (152 + 466) = 618, as in 1/φ again; and Naftali and Yissachar at (570 + 830) = 1400. By default, this leaves only Joseph’s two sons Efraim and Manasseh at (331 + 395) = 726, perhaps most fitting of all. In order, they represent totals of 37, 354, 555, 618, 726, and 1400 with the two pairs (618 + 1400) equal to 2018, as in the year 2018 CE or 5778 HC, the Event Horizon of Spherical Time and the life giving and light giving 5778 K surface temperature of the Sun. It is also the year 2018 HC, when G-d made his Covenant of Halves with Abraham. It is thus appropriate for this double pairing to form an axis of the Cosmic Magen David, probably the vertical one with the 618 pair at the top and the 1400 one on the bottom of the central vertical axis. The value 1400 is reflected in the numerical value of David (14), whose midpoint in his 70-year life is at the exact center of the 5778-year Spherical Time radius in 2889 HC. Moreover, the ratio of 618/1400 is 441, as in the Hebrew word Emet (אמת) meaning Truth, and since the 420th of the 1820 YHVH (יהוה) of the Torah leads off the 10 Commandments, there are exactly 1400 YHVH (יהוה) that follow it. Meanwhile, the final letters of the other 6 Tribe set equal 360, as in the 360o in a circle, and as in (18 x 20) like the 1820 value of the 6 Name set, the 1820 YHVH (יהוה) in the Torah, the 1820 census differential, and as in (20 x 18) from the year and value 2018 and from the ordinal values of the two central letters (רצ) of the 42-Letter Name Matrix. Another logical axis pairing is (354 + 726) = 1080, as in the radius of the moon associated with the inner hexagon of the 6 YHVH (יהוה) Tetrahedra. This leaves only (37 + 555) = 592 with 37 being 6.66% of 555 for the 3rd and final axis of the Cosmic Magen David. Altogether, the 3 axes or 2 opposing interlocked major triangles are split into (37 + 354 + 618) = 1009, which is 2018/2, like the 18th unique set of doubled words in the Torah (טרף־טרף) or (1009 + 1009) that was expressed by Jacob’s sons when they lied about his death. The other major triangle has the numerical value (555 + 726 + 1400) = 2681. The total is thus (1009 + 2681) = 3690, or 70 years shy of 3760 HC, the pivotal Spherical Time year of peace, Shalom (376), that also marks year 0 CE on the Western Calendar. It is also reflective of the parallel 3760 years of Spiritual Time verses the 2018 years of Physical Time that are in the ratio of the Speed-of-light (c) within the metaphysical schematic and universal cosmology. Those 70 years are marked by the 70 family members of Jacob that entered Egypt and the 70 branches of the Tree-of-Life balanced by the 70 nations of the world and their assorted ministers, along with the 70 years of King David at the center of Spherical Time. The ratios of those totals is (1009/3690) = 27.3%, the Cosmic Harmonic once again; (2681/3690) = 72.6%; as in the 7 dimensions of Zeir Anpin represented by the value (26) of the YHVH (יהוה), and the 726 Ephraim-Manasseh pair once again; and (1009/2681) = 37.6% as in Shalom (שלום), Peace and 3760 once again. So, the cosmic and metaphysical Magen David in all its glory represents the fusion of Binah and Zeir Anpin along with the appropriate Gateways. It is the union of the 12 Tribes with the outer Tetrahedra aligned perfectly with the Sun, the inner 6 Tribes with the Moon, and the 12 Tribes together with the Earth. The sum of the unaided 12 Tetrahedra that add up to 7620 has a counterspace of (10,000 –7620) = 2380, as in the sum of the Path of One (1 + 13 + 91 + 455 + 1820) = 2380 which in turn equals 1/42, the Singularity and Source. The placement of the 6 Tribes (Efraim, Benyamin, Asher, Reuven, Naftali, and Gad) that equal 1820 in the outer ring of 6 Tetrahedra that are aligned with Binah juxtaposes with the 6 Tribes (Shimon, Yehuda, Dan, Manasseh, Yissachar, Zevulun). They equal 1870 or (1820 + 50) and are found in the inner ring (hexagon) of Tetrahedra aligned with Zeir Anpin. The second set of 6 Tribes is likewise cosmically and metaphysically aligned with the Cosmic Harmonic (1.273) and the Path of One in that (1870 x 1.273) = 2380 = 1/42. Meanwhile, this Biblical juxtaposition between the 2 sets of 1820 and 1870 is also cosmically and metaphysically directly aligned with the 42-Letter Name Matrix. The 3 upper levels/rows or 6 Triplets of the 42-Letter Name Matrix likewise equal 1820. And its 3 lower levels/rows or 6 Triplets equal 1375 or (50 x 27.5), the height of the Gates of the Holy Temple in inches and the radiance of the Primal Frequency (27.5 Hz) and the Phi (φ) angle (137.5o) throughout the universe. This leaves only the uppermost level of the 42-Letter Name Matrix whose value 506 is the complete value of Moshiach Ben David. The value 506 first presents itself in the Torah within its first verse as the difference between the values of its first word and its sixth, between its highest word value and its next highest (913 – 407) = 506. Moreover, the sum can be had by alternating adding and subtracting (913 – 203 + 86 – 401 – 395 + 407 – 296) = 506 also directly from the Torah’s first verse. While the first 4 words alternately equal (913 – 203 + 86 – 401) = 395, the value of the 5th word H’Shamaim (The Heavens), when we extend that to the 8 words or 11 Triplets of Creation, we get (913 – 203 + 86 – 401 – 395 + 407 – 296 + 302) = 808, which is also the sum of the 4th and 6th words (401 + 407) = 808, and is the sofit value of Abraham, making the net average 808/8 = 101, the value of Michael, the guardian Archangel of Israel. As a bonus, with these 8 words from the 11 Triplets of Creation that connect to mazal, we have the 6th and 8th words (407 + 302) = 709, the value of the 7 doubles of the Hebrew Letters as explained by Abraham Avinu, the 7 letters associated with the 7 planets that influence mazal, and that closely orbit the center of the 42 Letter Name. Moreover, the value 506 also represents the first 11 perfect squares (12 + 22 +…112) = 506, representing the 11 dimensions of the Tree-of-life. In this parallel ordering, the initials of the 3 Tribes at the 3 topmost points of the Cosmic Magen David spell Aba (אבא), Father, and of the 12 initials of the 12 Tribes that sum to the 628, the 2π figure critical to so many of our physical formulas and equations, the right axis or column equals 248, as in mercy associated with Abraham (248) and as in the central concept to the Torah including its 401273 = 248,000φ words, letters, verses, rows and 248 columns and including the 248 words and 1000 letters in the Shema, and to the symmetry in the consciousness throughout its overarching 248 dimensions. The initials in the left axis or column equal 18, as in the 183 plus the 13 (Echad) verses of the 10 Commandments in the Torah, and as in the square of 4.24260, or Moshiach Ben David and the YHVH (יהוה). And the initials of the central axis or column with the 13th point in the center as the kolel (1) equal 363, the value of H’Moshiach, in the same way that 18 is the value of “The One (האחד).” Opposite the 3 Tribes at the top of the Cosmic Magen David whose initials spell Aba (אבא), Father are the 3 Tribes Reuven, Naftali, and Gad whose initials (רנג) have the value 253, the 22nd Triangular Number, representing the 22 Letters, and the 7th Star Number. Finally, the sum of the digits in the 6 pairs of Tribes and/or the two interlocking major triangles of the Magen David equal 72, as in the 72 Name (Triplets) Matrix embedded in the Torah at the Spitting of the Red Sea, the moment of freedom for the Israelites. So, like the Staff of Moses and the Breastplate of the Cohen H’Gadol the Magen David contains the open spiritual channel to the 72 Triplets of the 72 Name Matrix and the 14 Triplets of the 42-Letter Name. From the outer ring of the Magen David to the inner one the entire shield brings together the power and unity and the radiance of the 12 Tribes and it connects to and aligns with the Source, the Singularity, and the Essence of the Creator. This is our time to do our part. Evil is creeping over the surface of the Earth and oozing through the tunnels, spilling the blood of the innocent in despicable ways and sucking the life-force out of this world. We were gifted the tools. Now we must stand up and stand together and use them to fight back, to fight for our souls. While there is still time, we must focus our prayers and endow the Magen David with the innate power, strength, and protection of the upper worlds, the worlds of consciousness. The Magen David is for Israel, the Jews worldwide, and for anyone who believes in righteousness, freedom, and the Creator. We must all stand under it and with it and together be in unity and be One with the Creator. Everyone will get something different from the information contained in this article. Just take whatever you got from it, regardless of your level of understanding and actively meditate to send it into the Magen David and then back out to the world and the universe, as often and as deeply as you can and trust the Creator to do the rest. The Israelites did not cross the Red Sea by sitting on the shore and they did not cross it without the help of the Creator and neither will we. We form a minyan because everyone plays a part, from those that understand the most to the least–our prayers must be joined as one. Each prayer reaches a different level and a different place within the greater consciousness and the more places we collectively draw upon, the greater the effect in our world. We should add or recite the Ana B’koach, the 42-Letter Name to our prayers to help ensure they reach the highest levels and are as strong and potent as possible. The most appropriate point in the prayer for the meditations on the Magen David for all the reasons explained above is the exact midpoint of the Name. Our deepest prayers go out to the innocent hostages, to the brave IDF soldiers trying to free the hostages and defend Israel, to the united people of Israel working together to support the IDF and who carry the banner for the world against the evil tyranny overrunning it, to the innocent Jewish students trying to go about their lives in the face of such vicious and vile hatred from their so-called fellow students, faculty, and administrators alike, and to all those in the synagogues and churches asking G-d for strength and answers.
