Kabbalah: What do these Kabbalah Prayers Mean?
Posted by sharon | Filed under Kabbalah
Ok, lets try to demystify some of the most popular Kabbalah prayers:
1. Ana El Na Refa Na La: Please, G-d heal her
This was the simple one line prayer from Bamidbar (Numbers 12:13) which Moses used to ask G-d to heal his sister Miriam. Today it is used as a meditative chant for general Jewish health.
2. Ben Porat Yosef, Ben Porat Alei Ayin: A fruitful son is Yosef, a fruitful son by a spring.
This was blessing from Genesis/Bereshit that Jacob gave to his son Joseph before he passed away.
3. Gam Ki Elech Begei Tzalmavet, Lo Ira Ra Ki Ata Imadi: Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil for you are with me.
Translation of David’s famous Tehillim (Psalm 23), which was originally written in Hebrew.
Even in tough circumstances we need to understand that all the hardships are for good, to educate and to make us stronger. By wearing this Kabbalah symbol, you may attract Divine protection and increase your faith.
4. Shamreni Mi Kol Tzara Mi Kol Pachad Ve Mi Kol Choli: Guard me from trouble, fear and sickness
This Biblical verse begs G-d for complete protection from all negative circumstances. By wearing this Kabbalistic symbol, you are drawing down the guardful watch of G-d Himself, who will help ward off all forms of pain and evil.
5. SAL – Samech – Alef – Lamed (Seter Ata Li) Techaneni Shefa Bracha Vehatzlacha: G-d Endow Me with Abundance, Blessing and Success
This is a Kabbalistic verse that has the power to attract an abundance of blessings in every aspect of life. It can help usher in wealth into your life, as well as all sorts of other blessings you are longing for. G-d wants to give us everything good we can possibly have. However, many layers, often self-procured, block the goodness from pouring down on us. This necklace helps to shatter the impeding layers between us and G-d, so that the blessings awaiting above may rain down on us!
4. Mayim Rabim Lo Yuchlu L’chabot Et Ha’ahava Uneharot Lo Yishtefuha Imyiten Ish Etkol Hon Beito Baahava Boz Yavuzu Lo: Many waters cannot quench love, nor will rivers overflow it.
This verse comes from the world’s greatest love poem: Shir Hashirim/ Song of Songs. It conjures the deepest power of love: its infiniteness and ability to withstand any obstacle. Sadly, many people do not experience true love. Their love has all sorts of preconditions, and is subject to change and even transformation to hate, or lack of care, based on certain problems. However, we all have the ability to tap into the deepest form of love and feel the blissful beauty of this ideal in our lives. When worn as jewlery, this verse can act as a segula (charm) to help those who are single attract their soul mates, and those who are in relationships to strengthen their bonds of love.
