The Holy Name

 By Cheryl Glover, New Thought Kabbalah


In Judaism and in Kabbalah 'God' is merely called The Name or Ha Shem. The reason is not to lessen the concept of God, but to understand the power of the Holy Name. It is a mystery exactly what God's Name is. Why is this important? In Kabbalistic principles we understand that words, names, letters contain the spark of divine energy that creates our world. Encoded in every letter is the substance and essence of Creation. When we think negative thoughts, our world is impacted by these negative thoughts. When we think positive thoughts, our world is impacted by these.


In the beginning there was the word. In Kabbalah the essence of creation lies in the encoding of the Hebrew letters: the 22 letters that God used to create the world. In these letters lies the code:

  • of our DNA

  • of our Soul's essence

  • of our connection to Adam (unity of ONE Soul)

  • to the source of creation

  • to our connection to HaShem

  • to the Holy of Holies

  • to the four worlds of the Tree of Life

Once we understand the power of the letters, we can take the jump to understand the power of the Holy Name.  There are many forms of this: the tetragram of yud, Hei, Vav, Hei; Elohim, El Shaddai, Adonai, the 42 Names of God: the Ana Bekoach prayer, the 72 Names of God (code in the first 3 paragraphs of Genesis), the Sh'ma (statement of Faith: loving God), and various other Names that are placed on plaques, jewelry, amulets, etc.


Once we understand this, we can understand the power of putting the Holy Name on jewelry and amulets. A word of caution: amulets and jewelry should be used to CONNECT, not to manipulate. To use the Holy Name for personal gain would not be "Kosher." On the other hand, connecting through the Hebrew letters to the Creator, brings us closer to our heritage from God. We become more Holy, more righteous, and more wise. The idea is to connect to the Holy Names so that we can improve ourselves, be more conscious, more aware, and make better decisions. When we connect in this way by connecting to the Holy Name, we change our lives and the lives of those around us. We raise ourselves to a higher level on the Tree of Life, by keeping ourselves connected to God. In order to be connected we need to be more positive, think Holy thoughts, perform Holy actions like mitzvahs (charity, good deeds.)


Since we are human, we sometimes need tools to stay positive, stay enlightened, stay connected. The Holy Name is a tool. Meditate on it, hold it, love it and become it. May it lead you to the Light and create a wonderful new year of Hashem, charity, prosperity, joy and peace.


Happy holidays to you all, and Shabbat Shalom,

Blessings and Light
