Tikkun 22 – 47
The Shechina below is the ‘impression’ of the seal of truth, which is the central column of the Tree of Life.
The seal is expressed through Zeir Anpin, which is represennted with the name יוד-הא-ואו-הא.
The Torah is the aspect of Zeir Anpin and on the Seventh day, its light becomes available with the Torah reading in a group of ten or more men. After each of the seven readings we ‘seal’ the connection with the word אמת, ‘Emet’, meaning truth. With this word we get the ‘impression’ of the light in our life.
This seal has three letters for the unification of the three columns. The first letter is א, which is the first of the Alef-bet, the second is מ, which is the middle letter of the 22, it is also in the 13th position to revel the aspect of the whole 22 letters as energy of love from the Creator. The מ is also constructed from כ andו. Together it is 26 as the YHVH and twice ‘love’ אהבה.
The third and last letter of this seal is ת, which is the last letter of the Alef-Bet and it represents Malchut. Its value is 400 and with the ordinal value of 22 it gives 422 which is the numerical value of the word 70 שבעים. 70 refers to all the seven sefirot from Chessed to Malchut.
Next time you listen to the Torah on Shabbat, make sure you listen to all the 7 Torah blessings and say the word Emet after each reading. It’s the seal of God given to us as a gift every shabbat.
