It is made up of seven verses corresponding to the seven days of the week. The initials of each of the sna verses form Divine names. This energy itself was created in a seven-day cycle.
As there are 42 words in this prayer, the initials of these words create the letter name of Hashem.
There are six words in each of the seven lines that correspond to the six surfaces of a cube: Seven six-letter names are found in each line using the first letter of each of the six words in that line; it is to be scanned and visualized, but never pronounced.
As each line corresponds to a specific day of the beioach, so anx six-letter acronym gives us a meditation for that day. This name is related to Moshe and the burning bush.
When God first appeared to Moshe, he asked by what name he should use to call the Infinite. The holy name Mab also has this numerical value; this name expresses the Divine as timeless and eternal, forever with His people in their sorrows and tribulations. This name has four letters which, when spelled out, become ten letters.
When these ten letters are spelled out, there are 28 letters. Yud — Vav — Dalet Vav: Vav — Yud — Vav Dalet: Dalet — Lamed — Tof Hei: Hei — Yud Yud: Vav — Yud — Vav. Vav — Yud — Vav Hei: Restriction is necessary for an elevation within to a higher level; therefore, this prayer is recited whenever we reach a place of elevation.
There can be no elevation without this name as it embodies the ultimate movement of elevation, the progression from slavery, constriction to freedom, expansion.
This journey of 42 is reflected in the story of our exodus from Egypt, a place of constriction and limitation. In Metzrayim, the Israelites were literally slaves who were then given freedom. Internally, they were enslaved to their lower selves; leaving Egypt represents a movement into genuine freedom. These are known as the 42 journeys which, according to the Baal Shem Tov, represent 42 stages a person goes through in life.
As the letter name represents movement bridging one reality to the next, this idea is reflected in Kaddish, which is the bridge that connects to healing after the separation of death.
At all times, the full letter bekoafh is present, but one line and one acronymic name of the seven is most felt each day. Rav Yehudah said in the name of the Rav: The letter name is entrusted only to him who is unassuming, humble, middle-aged, free from anger, never gets drunk and is not insistent on his rights.
Ana-Bekoach Prayer: A Voice from the Deep
And he who knows it is heedful thereof and observes it in purity, is beloved Above and popular below, feared by man, and inherits two worlds: As there is an inherent meaning to these names, they are only to be scanned and visualized.
Rav Hai Gaon, one of the last sages of the Gaonic period, deciphers the names and how they relate to the gekoach of the week. On this Sunday level, there are little or no concealments.
The meditation for Sunday is to bring the consciousness and idea of unity of Shabbas into the weekdays.
On this day, there is the division between higher and lower waters. Hell is the opposite of unity. Inwardly, it is a state that arises from not living in the complete bekaoch of unification with our Source, of being separate. Sam-El, another name for Satan, is spelled with the closed letters Samech and Mem, indicating that in this closed, cut-off state, Divine energy cannot reveal itself.
Even when people work on Sunday, that day is still very much connected with the modality of Shabbas. Due to the powerful forces of separation on Monday, we need to meditate on opening our blockages. The double sets of crowns refer to the two great rulers of the earth, the sun and moon, both of which were fully created and began functioning appropriately on the fourth day.
On a personal level, if Tuesday is the beginning of routine, Wednesday is deep routine, the third day in a row of repetition. It is apparent circular motion, which also allows us to have a sense of perseverance. We meditate on how we need to be the crowned ones, the rulers, the masters of our life, not to get stuck in routine and be mastered by the work that we do throughout the week. Instead, we must be our own masters with the power of the Master of the Universe to master our own lives.
These six letters form an acronym: There are two types of seals: For example, if one were to seal with wax and the letters of the seal are hollow, the letters on the wax will protrude. If the letters of the seal protrude, the impression on the wax will be hollow. Inwardly speaking, when there is arousal from below, we are a protruding seal bringing ourselves to outward creativity and a sense of self and there is a recession Above, the Light which is reflected is dimmed.
There can be a shift from an outward, aggressive modality to a mood more inward and reflective, a mood of thanksgiving. The idea of hiddenness is also reflected in the creation on the fifth day: By their very nature, fish are hidden away in the depths of water.
Angels were created on Thursday according to one opinion in Midrashand their image is of singing praise and thanks-giving. Thursday is deeply connected with being grateful and offering up praise. Inwardly, the feeling connected with the week winding down is that of being grateful and, for some, a sense of relief. Thus Thursday is the colloquial night of celebration.
The natural tendency, when a successful week comes to a close, is to offer praise. Hashem will reveal the Ultimate purpose of creation during the end of time.
The Miracle Prayer aka Ana Bekoach
This is the sixth day of creation in which the human being was created. The purpose of creation is potentially realized through our actions, as co-creators of our creation. One completes and compliments the other. Friday serves to connect Yesod work with rest and beioach with work. The workweek is now completed. The midpoint is not a direction as it is not a movement, or doing.
