A rose by any other name will still be a rose! by William Shakespeare.
Is this true or false?
If the language is Hebrew it is false.
This is the power of the Hebrew Language also called the Holy Language. Adam named all of the animals and all aspects of his/our world using the Holy Language Hebrew. As such he established the inner essence of each item named.
The Kabbalists teach that every name given in Hebrew is connected to the inner essence of the item or thing especially Personal Names.
By reading, permuting, digging deep into someone’s name one is able to know that person or thing on an inner level of understanding.

Exodus Chapter 14 Verse 19,20, and 21 are the verses that make up both the 72 names of God and the 72 Names of the Tzadikim. The difference between the 2 sets of names is the order in which the Letters of the verse are put into the matrix that creates the 3 Letter Names. Click here to see the 72 Name Chart and Click here to see the 72 Names of the Tzadikim.
A Holy Name or a Name of God when coming in the Hebrew language are attributes of the Creator. The Kabbalists teach that we can not name God since he can not be limited by anything physical. Yet he allows us to connect to him through naming his attributes. What is an attribute of God or of a Holy Name? It is its meaning.
so Healing can be an attribute of God, Certainty can be an attribute of God, Happiness can be an attribute of God.
The Kabbalists teach us that when we permute and mix the Hebrew Letters of our names with the attibutes or Names of God we are actually injecting these attributes into our souls. They reccomend that we do this as part of our meditations and Kavenot during our daily prayers.
A great spiritual gift is a chart of either the 72 names of God or the 72 Names of the Tzadikim intermixed with someone’s Name. For an example please click here.
Please note, the strength of the Hebrew Letters is in its combination of Sound and Sight. This is confirmed by the strange phrase from Exodus Chapter 20 Verse 15 “All of the People saw the voices”. Our sages have cautioned us to not say any of the Names of God or the Names of the Tzadikim except with thier Home Vowels. Therefore it is important that one ony look at the Letters with in the chart 1 name at a time starting from right to left and top to bottom. If one knows the home vowel of each letter, one can make this sequence of sounds but it is only suggested for someone who is Shomer Shabbat and Observant of the Mitzvot. Otherwise please just look at or scan the Letters of the Names.
What will happen when one scans the Names?
Your eyes are the window to our soul as the old adage says. You will receive the attribute of God represented by the Name into your soul. When you use the chart with your name you make those internal connections stronger. Follow these steps:
1. scan the names of the 72 names of God
2. scan the names of the 72 Names of God with your Name inserted
3. scan the names of the 72 Names from the Tzaadikim
4. scan the names of the 72 Names from the Tzaadikim with your Name inserted.
Throughtout this process have the Kavenah – the intention of strenghtening your connection to HaShem which will give pleasure or Nachat to HaShem. You can also have the Kavenah- the intention to receive more power and energy which you will use to help and share with others.
As with all things in the Kabbalah the more one learns about these Names the stronger will be your connection. It is my intention to write a blog about these names and we solicit donations to allow us the time to do so.
People who do this have found that it helps them within their life both the phsyical and spiritual levels. We know you will find these useful.
For those who are interested, you can see examples of these charts both with and without personal names here at the Yeshshem spiritual gift page. You will also find other spiritual gifts. All donations are used to automate and build are website to be more responsive to you and your questions.
