AYIN-BET (The 72 Names of God) ~Reflections #19. LAMED VAV VAV – Guardian angel, Lauvaviah – “Expansive Intelligence/Fruition”
Are you constantly getting a busy signal when you pray? Is there too much static on the line? Are you constantly getting cut off each time you dial up? Is it hard to get an outside line?
The Light is always there, never changing, forever willing and able to fulfill our every desire, to answer our every prayer. Just like the electricity in our homes, it is ever present, but we must plug into it in order to physically receive its many benefits.
There are many negative forces that attempt to block and impede our prayers as they travel the spiritual network. We create these negative forces with our own negative behavior and unkind words. In the same way as freezing rain and ice can down a power line, our cold and bitter behavior breaks down the lines of communication to the source of all blessings.
This Name clears all obstructions, provided we acknowledge that we alone are responsible for getting our prayers answered. It repairs broken lines, removes interference, and establishes a secure line of communication to the Upper World.
You dial. You connect. Your prayers are answered at the speed of “Light.”
Vayechi: Verse 229
All the people in the world come to be judged before the most high King and He judges them on Rosh Hashanah and on Yom Kippur until the fifteenth day of the month. Thus, it was found out that Yisrael had all succeeded in repenting, and had worked hard in building the Sukkah and acquiring a Lulav and Etrog. It is not known who won the judgment. The supernal angels ask who has won, and the Holy One, blessed be He, says ‘they who hold My signs in their hands, THE FOUR KINDS, have received a favorable judgment.’
On that day, Yisrael leave with a mark from the King with a song of glory and enter the Sukkah, Etrog in their left hand, a Lulav in their right. Every one sees that Yisrael are written in the King’s list, and open and say, “Happy is that people, that is in such a case, happy is that people, whose Elohim is Hashem” (Tehilim 144:15).
