Those who know the holy name of 42 letters and properly meditate on it, will see six letters י Yod and three letters ו Vav. They are the letters of the blessing of the Kohanim ( Numbers 6:24,25,26)
YHVH bless you, and keep you;
YHVH make His face shine on you, And be gracious to you;
YHVH lift up His countenance on you, And give you peace.’
The first three Yods form the Right column, The next three Yods form the Left column and the three Vavs form the Central column.
With this meditation, the Shechina comes to bless the day.
At sunrise, the central column on the south shines in crimson color that results from the merged colors of the three Sefirot Chessed, Gevurah and Tiferet. In this Center column meet three ‘birds’ that are the three columns that bring light to Malchut. They are called birds because the Light of Chokmah that comes down to Malchut is called bird.
The morning blessings are very important to start the day. The Zohar tells us not to greet any person before we make blessings and give thanks to God, our Creator.
The PDF below has the morning blessings. It can also be found in all prayer books.
The blessing of the Kohanim (priests) is at the end of the morning blessings to connect us to the Light of Chassadim for the entire day. There are many secrets in blessing of the Kohanim (Priest) and we will make a separate lesson about it.
The Zohar reveals that Mashiach would come from a place called the ‘Bird’s nest’. It is the source of the Light of Chokmah. Mashiach would bring with him this light when he ‘travels’ down the Center Column to Malchut to bring about the Final Redemption.
Read Zohar Shemot from paragraph #106 on.
In Israel they make special blessings by the Western Wall of the Holy Temple during the three major holidays that represent the Right, Left and Center (Sukkot, Pesach, and Shavuot).
