Memorial To Tragedies That Never Happened


Then came Amalek, and fought with Israel in Rephidim ... Shemot 17:8

The word בִּרְפִידִם (in Rephidim) can be separated into two hebrew words, namely בר פידם. The meaning of these words point to that "capable of (from Aramaic בר) producing tragedies" (from the root פיד meaning to 'evoke a tragic fate'). In other words, b'Rephidim pertains to times in life capable of producing (but not necessarily producing) tragedies.

This follows perfectly with my shabbat dream Will, The Man In Black, telling of many times in my life when tragedies could have happened, but didn't. Instead of tragedy, I have written

'... this for a memorial in the book (of my blog), and rehearse it in the ears of Joshua (Will, the ancestor who came to my defense): for I will utterly blot out the remembrance of Amalek from under heaven.'

Ability To Bestow Ability


gave favour ... Shemot 11:3

The shoresh (root) for the word 'favor' (חן) in this phrase is חנן which means to "bestow traits", "granting favor", "blessing someone", "equipping with intellectual abilities" and "being worthy" [1].

The shoresh חנן has a gematria of 108, which is 36 X 3 (לו X ג), where 36 is the number associated with a lamedvavnik and 3 is the number associated with the triform Goddess. The value 108 is also the combined gematria of the three words 'eleh' (אלה) as discussed in my previous commentary on Vaera, The Mystery Of These.

Thus, we can understand that through these are bestowed the ability to go beyond the level of 'lamedvavnik'.

The Mystery Of These


One House For All Of These

There are two relevant words 'these' in this week's Torah portion in chapter 6.

These are the heads of their fathers' houses (the sons of Reuben, the first born of Israel) ... Shemot 6:14 (contains feminine phrasing - 'beit') אֵלֶּה, רָאשֵׁי בֵית-אֲבֹתָם

These are the heads of the fathers' houses of the Levites (according to their families) ... Shemot 6:25 (contains masculine phrasing - 'levi'im') אֵלֶּה, רָאשֵׁי אֲבוֹת הַלְוִיִּם

There is only one word 'these' (spoken as 'this') in the error with the golden calf:

and they said: 'This ..' (is your God) Shemot 32:4

Hands Of Leadership

The three words 'these' (each written אֵלֶּה) are a triform of Goddess, the Divine Feminine (as opposed to the Divine Masculine). She as opposed to He. These as opposed to this. Through these three (free will state of consciousness) is revealed the correct one (omniscient state of consciousness).

Root Of Revelation

The word 'these' (אֵלֶּה) in Hebrew is written with a dagesh in the lamed (לּ), indicating that the shoresh (root) of the word contains two letters lamed (ל). Dr. Meshullam Klarberg writes in discussion of a word containing a lamed with a dagesh (dot in the middle):
As Rashi (above) points out, searching for the root can help in the interpretation of a word. However care must be taken not to find a wrong root.

Indeed. We can understand then that, in addition to identifying the wrong leader, the error of the golden calf (which led to identification of the wrong leader) was to identify the wrong shoresh. The shoresh of אלה is not אלל (obstruct development), it is הלל (reveal Divinity), with a leading letter hei (ה, the source of all the letters) as opposed to a leading letter aleph (א).

Holy Ground


The place on which you stand is holy ground ... Shemot 3:5
כִּי הַמָּקוֹם אֲשֶׁר אַתָּה עוֹמֵד עָלָיו, אַדְמַת-קֹדֶשׁ הוּא

Celtic Underworld Tradition transmits that from within the deepest depths of the planet emanates a mystic order of Priestess Awareness associated with Goddess. This hidden order of the Divine Feminine lives beyond the confines of time and is known as the Sisters at the Back of the North Wind [1].

The Sisters appear in meditation as hooded women of great knowledge and power [1]. Unifying all female witches as One into a Sisterhood of Witches, from Beyond at the Back of the North Wind, Sisterhood Consciousness emanates from beyond the place where evil begins. Importantly then, there is no evil in the Sisterhood, making Sisterhood Consciousness a manifest intelligence resulting (as taught in Kabbalah) from the 'elevation' of evil back into the 'realm of the Holy'. Touching each individual witch, the 'realm of the Holy' emanates from and wholly embraces us within the depths of the earth itself.

The ground upon which we stand is Holy.

A Closet In Mitzrayim


So Joseph died, being a hundred and ten years old. And they embalmed him, and he was put in a coffin in Mitzrayim ... Bereshit 50:26

The phrase "in a coffin in Mitzrayim" in Hebrew is written בארון במצרים, b'aron b'mitzrayim.

Aron (ark, closet) is from the shoresh ארה meaning to take and hold, to contain, plucking, container, roots, lion (a creature that roars), powerful leader, and fir tree with container like growth.

Interestingly, yesterday I received a free sample of essential balsam fir oil with one of my oil orders, and today FOXnews reports that a "mystery roar" has been detected coming in from faraway space:

LONG BEACH, Calif. — Space is typically thought of as a very quiet place. But one team of astronomers has found a strange cosmic noise that booms six times louder than expected.

The roar is from the distant cosmos. Nobody knows what causes it.

But the newly detected signal, described here today at the 213th meeting of the American Astronomical Society, is far louder than astronomers expected.

There is "something new and interesting going on in the universe," said Alan Kogut of NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Md.

The two details of my week this week connect to the 1967 event in my closet (an ark), where I was plucked up, and among other things, journeyed to the edges of the Universe.

Joseph in his ark may have died - it became his coffin, but I survived mine, and I am still alive.

A witch survives what Joseph couldn't.

The Magic Number


And from among his brethren he took five men, and presented them unto Pharaoh. ...Bereshit 47:2

DovBear comments on Bereshit 47:2:

Did Joseph (47:2) bring Pharaoh his five weakest brothers or his five strongest bothers? And who were they? Much disagreement on both questions among the commentators. Alter points out that five is a magic number in this story.

Let's look more closely at the "five men" (חֲמִשָּׁה אֲנָשִׁים).

The number five is written with four letters, namely חמשה, with the gematria of 353. Interestingly, the value of 353 is five less than the gematria of the word for moshiach (משיח) whose gematria is 358. So, we can see that these five men are five short of messianic consciousness. What magic then is missing? Following the scent which fills the air ...

Abracadabra ... now we see it.

The gematria for the entire phrase "five men" (חמשה אנשים) is 754. Fully reduced down into a single digit sum (man), the gematria sums up to a magic seven - the value representative of a woman of valor. Very interesting. There are "five men" who reduce into one man equal to one woman of valor, but where is she?

She is the missing magic number in the physical world which turns 353 into 358.
