Hebrew Words and Letters

Alef
Alef is the first letter in the Living Letter Alphabet and symbolizes the One and Only, symbolic for the concept of God. It is a letter that has no sound. Having no sound is another way of saying, having no words or thoughts. In many of the meditation traditions, the purpose of the meditation is to clear your mind and to be in a state of stillness and silence. It is at these times that we have the greatest connection with our personal understanding of the One and Only. In Kabbalistic lore, the Alef represents the primal force of energy before any form can be visualized. The Alef shape resembles an individual ready to act in the world. It represents the numerical value of one.

​Bet​
Bet is the second letter in the Living Language Alphabet. The torah begins with a word that starts with a Bet and reads “In the beginning”. For Kabbalists it is the primal energy of creation from which everything is born and nourished. It is being ready to act. It represents a house or home. It is more then just a shelter from the elements. It is a place that one has the feeling of belonging, and from here you can become the person you are emotionally and spiritually meant to be. It represents the number two and the duality that we observe with our senses, like good and bad, full and empty, spiritual and mundane, such polarities are ultimately illusory, and reveal themselves to be of the same energy as the Eternal One.​

The Hebrew Letter Definition for the Hebrew Word Wisdom

The word starts with Chet, it stands for an existence on a plane above nature, which is the Divine. Kaf connotes productivity and accomplishment, which results through mental and physical effort. The letter Mem can refer to a wise teacher and a spiritual guide or an angel. Hay is the source of all, which includes wisdom and comes to us from a singular energy. With self- knowledge, inspiration and Divine communication, we gain Wisdom, which is a gift that helps us bring order and makes sense of our world.

Wisdom can be gained from life experiences, from self reflection, looking within ourselves to our connection with the source for Divine inspiration or watching others and listening to their life stories.


It is fitting to end this word with a Hei, it reminds us that the source of all, which includes wisdom ultimately comes to us from a singular energy that unites us all.


With self- knowledge, inspiration and Divine communication, we gain Wisdom, which is a gift that helps us bring order and makes sense of our world.

Here we are reminded that all though the gifts of wisdom are available for us to incorporate into our beings, we must seek them out, and ask to be given this knowledge.
