Daily Zohar # 1600 – Shoftim – The Sword II
The Zohar explains that the scabbard of the sword is the aspect of the name of God that we use in the world of Malchut, אדני, ADNY. It is the ‘house’ of judgment because the name has the letters א that represents the Light of the higher level and דין that means ‘judgment’ and the aspect of the vessel, Malchut.
When the Light (the sword, YHVH, יהוה) enters the vessel (Scabbard, אדני, ADNY) we have a unification of the two names and judgments goes to rest.
We remove the negativity with the sword that is the Shema Israel prayer. After we clear the negativity from our path we go into the peace and unification with the Light with silent prayer that has 18 blessings.
We start the silent prayer with the words from Psalms 51:17 “אֲדֹנָי שְׂפָתַי תִּפְתָּח וּפִי יַגִּיד תְּהִלָּתֶךָ.”
“Lord (ADNY), open my lips. My mouth shall declare your praise.”
The tongue inside our mouth is the aspect of the sword and the level of Yessod. Since we already cleared the negativity, we do this prayer silently. Sound is vibrations of air and it belongs to the world of Malchut. If others hear the sound of this prayer then the unification may get disconnected.
The Shema Israel prayer is the only sword that removes judgment without causing judgment like a physical sword. The world needs to use this sword against the bloody swords of the negative and evil side.
Please recite the Shema prayer three times a day. In the morning (Daylight), after sundown and just before going to sleep. Meditate to remove negativity from your life and the entire world.
Always strengthen the connection with Ana B’Koach and Zohar.
