“The Tetragrammaton is like a trunk of a tree, while the other names are like its branches.”¹

The Kabbalists used the divine name to unify their consciousness with God. The different names considered to be gateways through which the divine could express certain qualities. Take a few breaths. Repeat the phrase Shiviti Shekinah L’negdi Tamid- 3 times. Replace “Shekinah” with each God, as listed above, until all the names have been spoken. Through thought, word and deed, waking and sleeping, may you remember the Divine, present and before you always!
