Holy Zohar text. Daily Zohar -997

Tikkun 70 – 102

In the morning prayer we elevate our souls from the world of Asiah (Action) through world of Yetzirah (Formation) and Beriah (Creation) to the world of Atzilut (Emanation). We, then draw light from the higher level and come back down the worlds with the light gathered from above. One of the important parts in the prayer helps us cross the bridge from the world of Asiah to Yetzira. We stand up and recite the following.

יֶהוֶה מֶלֶךְ, יַהוַה מָלָךְ; יִהְוָה יִמְלֹךְ, לְעֹלָם וָעֶד
“YHVH rules, YHVH ruled, YHVH will rule forever and ever.”
The Zohar explains the connection and the Holy Ari in the gate of meditation gives us the details that, the first time we recite the line we connect Chokmah, Binah and Da’at with Chessed, Gevurah and Tiferet
יֶהוֶה מֶלֶךְ, יַהוַה מָלָךְ; יִהְוָה יִמְלֹךְ, לְעֹלָם וָעֶד
When we say it the second time, we connect the previous with Netzach, Hod and Yessod.

These two lines are followed by a verse from Zechariah 14:9
“וְהָיָה יְהוָה לְמֶלֶךְ, עַל-כָּל-הָאָרֶץ; בַּיּוֹם הַהוּא, יִהְיֶה יְהוָה אֶחָד–וּשְׁמוֹ אֶחָד.”
“And YHVH shall be King over all the earth; in that day shall YHVH (Upper levels) be One, and His name (Lower levels) one.”
With this, we fuse the upper level of Keter/Da’at with the lower levels to create the bridge to the upper world.

We see three YHVH and three words with the root מלך , ‘King/ruler’ .
יֶהוֶה מֶלֶךְ – YHVH rules – Present form
יַהוַה מָלָךְ – YHVH ruled – Past
יִהְוָה יִמְלֹךְ – YHVH will rule – Future

The numerical value of these six words is 358, same as the wordמשיח , Mashiah
Every sacred word we say in our prayers has the power to connect spiritual levels.

The upper Three Sefirot as most people know is Keter Chokmah and Binah but as you see in this article and in other places we specify Chokmah Binah and Da’at.
Da’at is a Sefirah that becomes active when Chokmah and Binah comes together. Keter is the seed/root of everything but the light appears in full in Chokmah. That is why Keter is only ‘hinted’ in the YHVH name with the tip of the first letter Yod while Yod itself is Chokmah.
In “Sefer Yetzirah” it is stated that there are 10 Sefirot and not 9 , 10 and not 11. Imagine a seed (keter) of a tree that disappears when it releases its energy (Chokmah connect to Binah) and start growing (Da’at).
