My “Short” Summary of Last Night’s Session:
Please forgive me if I got something wrong.
3 Teachings Based on Likutey Moharan, #44, #45 46
Hand Clapping & Prayer:
#44: Everything we do is powerful!
Idolaters have called us thieves, but this only is a vehicle, so Father can show the might of His deeds. He gave the gift of the Holy Nation to Israel to show everything is in His hands.
The power in His hands: Koach-kaf chet.
kaf 20, chet 8+20=8=28
There’s 28 letters of creation, 28 joints in our hands.
Yod-10, dalet-4 10 +4=14
We have 2 hands so; 14 x 2=28
The air in the nations is polluted with negative energy, in Jerusalem the air is pure. Potential energy is pure and holy while places of idolatry are polluted. When we clap we bring together the 28 letters of creation and sanctify the air paralleling the power of Father’s hands, the letters of creation!
We are air purifiers, truth seekers, Esh HaIsraeli, air is moved, and sound waves occur through the power of our hands clapping in prayer. Thus, the air and location we clap in is purified. Therefore we need a designated prayer area.
#45: The Wings of our lungs
Ref. Ezkl. 10, 25, Eccl.
Ecc 10:20 Curse not the king, no not in thy thought; and curse not the rich in thy bedchamber: for a bird of the air shall carry the voice, and that which hath wings shall tell the matter.
Perhaps better translated as -one who has wings shall utter the matter
Being aroused to clap in prayer awakens the wings, the wings are connected with our lungs. Flap your arms like a chicken and think about your arms in conjunction to your lungs while doing it. NO lol! Air goes through our lungs and allows us to utter speech once we have set our lips/ mouth in order to structure sound. The movement of us clapping connects sound making in the mouth.
Every hand has 5 fingers, we have two hands. 5x 5=25
If clapping is multiplying then, clapping form let to right, 5x5=25 and right to left 5x5=25. 25=25=50
50 is the number of times Exodus/Shemot is mentioned in Torah, 50 Gates of Wisdom, 50 Jubilee!
In Burning Bush conversation: Exo 4:11 Father said “who made man’s mouth?”
Who is the Hebrew Word mi mem yod. Mem-40, yod-10 40+10=50!
Father enables man the ability to speak, through 50, it is wisdom that allows us to control our mouth to utter the speech. The clapping is the adjusting of the air, arousal of the wings of our lungs, and harnessed energy comes forth out of our mouth.
#46: Prayer & the Bed of Unification
Ref. Trac. Berakhot 5:2, Ex.3:1, 4:3, Psalm 119, Job 18, Psalm 91
I’ll post more on this later but the main takeaway was:
Prayer from our Beds should be as powerful as the unification of our beds when we are united with our wives because ultimately prayer unifies!
