Tikkun 66 – 7
In the older times some people knew how to find animals of a specific Zodiac sign and by using Holy names they had activated them to be channels. They used them to get information and powers from the spiritual system. Holy Names were pushed in their mouth so they could speak in human language. The sin of the Golden Calf was done this way.
In the Ten Commandments we are told that we should not use the name of God in vain.
“לֹא תִשָּׂא אֶת-שֵׁם-יְהוָה אֱלֹהֶיךָ, לַשָּׁוְא: כִּי לֹא יְנַקֶּה יְהוָה, אֵת אֲשֶׁר-יִשָּׂא אֶת-שְׁמוֹ לַשָּׁוְא”
“Thou shalt not take the name of YHVH thy God in vain; for YHVH will not hold him guiltless that taketh His name in vain. ”
If a person uses Holy Names to create spiritual channels for his own purposes then the process of cleansing is very hard because negativity grabs hold of that energy.
“ וּפָקַדְתִּי עַל-בֵּל בְּבָבֶל, וְהֹצֵאתִי אֶת-בִּלְעוֹ מִפִּיו, וְלֹא-יִנְהֲרוּ אֵלָיו עוֹד, גּוֹיִם; גַּם-חוֹמַת בָּבֶל, נָפָלָה.”
“And I will punish Bel in Babylon, and I will bring forth out of his mouth that which he hath swallowed up, and the nations shall not flow any more unto him; yea, the wall of Babylon shall fall”
Babylon represents the improper use of the Holy names and confusion of the languages that were the result of that. (Read the Portion of Noah)
In the future God will remove the hold of the negativity on the names that were swallowed by them in the Malchut level.
The sacred language of the Zohar embeds many Holy names in a balanced way. When we study it, we benefit from the power of the light to influence positive change and have better control over our lives.
Since the destruction of the Holy Temple, we can not use and manipulate Holy names outside the ones that are in the Torah. The work and sacrifices that the high priest did at that time purified the world and all negativity that came to be from improper use of the names. Nowadays we do not have this purification channel and we can not use names.
When we use the common name ‘ADONAI’, it should not be spoken out unless it is with a blessing or during a proper spiritual connection and meditation.
Speaking the Holy names reveal them in Malchut and negativity will try to grab the energy if it is not protected.
After important spiritual connection we should say the verse
“בָּרוּךְ שֵׁם כְּבוֹד מַלְכוּתוֹ לְעוֹלָם וָעֶד”
Transliterated to: “baruch shem kevod malchuto le’olam va’ed”
English translation is given here but it doesn’t have any protection value
Translation: “Blessed is the name of his kingdom’s honor forever and ever”
It is the same six words that we whisper after the Ana B’Koach and after the first six words of the Shema Israel. If you do Ana B’koach followed immediately by scanning 72 names, say the above line at the end of the scanning.
There are some ‘business entrepreneurs’ that sell kabbalistic amulets with holy names. We should not use any of these unless they come from a well known righteous Kabbalist and even then, we should not see the name but carry it on us. Tattooing Holy names or 72 names on the body is not recommended at all.
