God, the encompassing all. Known and described as the quantum field in quantum physics, the collective unconscious in psychology, the “all is energy and frequency” in Law of attraction, or even in some magical systems as a universal consciousness or unity, similar to the Tao. God has many names but one thing is sure, it is commonly described in various paradigms as omnipresent at all times- everywhere and in everything. It connects and lives through everything, as it is everything.
I am not, and never will, be religious in the way of worshipping an external “God” but, the word “God” itself, for each of us, beholds something very powerful. We often associate the word with ultimate sovereignty, unconditional love and acceptance. It is forever good and all powerful, God is known as the creator and He is perfect.
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.John 1:1
Ultimately, we all have known the word God from our surroundings since we were kids, may it be at school, from your friends or in your family. And the source for that name comes from the Bible in Christianity. It is good to know that the Bible is not the oldest religious book and that similarities have been found in the Bhagavad Gita, an ancient Hindu scripture. Both spiritual leaders Jesus and Krishna are described as being herders, flashes of divine light in the womb of their divine mothers, had a good friend circle and was let down by these friends. They were both worshipped as Gods and spiritual leaders. It is possible that the Bible was inspired from the Indian source and was being translated and presented as a “more modern” Westernized (Jewish) version.
As information from different places were passed on from tribe to tribe, or culture to culture, the transmitted information could have been modified to be represented in an easier way to the receiving audience, or to create their “own” story with different names. Finally, they didn’t have the internet as we have today, and sending information from one place to another would probably have been a very different task during these times.
The point is that we have access to this book in our language and there is a particular man, named Neville Goddard, that has been studying this book for years in a non-dualistic way, understanding and studying the bible in allegory and parables. Allegory means that none of the characters or events present have happened in real life, and parables represent a symbolistic way, thus not to be taken literally. Neville Goddard’s teachings explain that the bible is a blueprint for man’s inner development and that scripture unfolds in each one of us. The different characters and places found in the Bible, such as Jesus, John, Peter, Israel, Jerusalem etc., together with the different events happening, represent the different states and realities of mind that man lives through. It is therefore natural to understand that the bible was never a book meant to be read literally and was something far more greater than we could have imagined to be.
I and My Father are one.John 10:30
Neville claimed that God lives in our imagination and that our assumptions create the world, literally. Your imagination is the one God scripture is talking about. You are God as you are part of him. Therefore, you can create anything you want with the power of your own awakened imagination. It’s good to consider that if the Bible has been written or “created”, it must have first come from mind or “awareness”, which is the way in which God expresses himself through, because he is in everything. Finally, Neville Goddard’s reputation is growing as his mystical teachings are found to comport with key issues in today’s quantum physics debate.
The beautiful thing about this, is that Neville has discovered something amazing about our true sovereign selves from a book that has been used for thousands of years to sometimes dictate people through religious concepts. Some religious practitioners have used the Bible to separate God from ourselves, and believes that God should be worshipped in certain ways or else you would go to a bad place called hell. The reality is that this book holds beautiful knowledge and the secret to the process of manifestation. The bible explains to us how to manifest and much more than that as you will see in other posts. Neville Goddard has helped us to discover that God is your imagination and therefore so are you, as you are part of him. This acknowledges you as the creator and therefore it is just a matter of being aware of that, to understand that all the power only resides from within you.
If you are here it’s because you want to find something, you are here to remember who you really are.
Who or what is God? What does the word God actually mean? And what does it mean if you are Him?
Let’s discover here in The name of God to see what it truly means.
And Moses said unto God, Behold, when I come unto the children of Israel, and shall say unto them, The God of your fathers hath sent me unto you; and they shall say to me, What is his name? what shall I say unto them?
And God said unto Moses, I Am That I Am: and he said, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, I Am hath sent me unto you.Exodus 3 13:14
The God from scripture is your imagination. It is in you as it is you. So, why not study God’s name from the Bible to understand more about it?
God is known as Yahweh (YHWH) or Yod He Vav He in the original Hebrew scripture. Side note, the bible has been found as oldest in Hebrew and Aramaic language, then it was translated to Greek, then Latin and finally in the languages of today. Therefore it seems reasonable to study closer to the source that is Hebrew.
The name of God known from Hebraic scripture is written as Yod He Vav He, and it is said to be an unpronounceable word. You can write it but you cannot say it because there are no vowels.
Now the interesting part is how the name of God is written in Hebrew. As Hebrew is a symbolistic language, the ancients who understood it understood it as the mathematician understands symbols of higher mathematics. It is not something people used to convey thought as we now use the English language.
Let’s look at God’s written name in Hebrew that are actually symbols, and discover what it means:
Hebrew is read from left to right
The first letter is Yod and represents a dot or point. It represents the Creator, the starting point of everything, that is awareness. Everything emerges from your awareness; just being “aware” of what is in front of you or what is in your thoughts. It is you, it represents the power of the spirit to govern and guide the matter. Awareness has no mass or density, time or space.
The second letter HE represents a door or a window. Also known as the breath of the creator, the gift of life and creates the verb of being. It is freedom of choice, it is imagining and being.
The third letter VAV represents a nail. A nail is used for the purpose of binding things together. It is the power to unite everything that is separated in creation. In Hebrew language, if you would write “man and women”, you would put the vav in between them.
And the last letter in the name of God is another HE or window.
What this means is the following:
You are seated here right now with your awareness. You are aware that you are aware. You are the awareness that sees your thoughts, surroundings and your body.
The first letter YOD, is your I AMness, it is your awareness, the source of everything that exists. Out of this awareness, all states of awareness come.
Then you have the letter HE, that is an image or the imagination (and you can imagine anything), it is your ability to imagine. You imagine or perceive something that is other than Self.
The third letter VAV, is the ability to bind, to put together. It is your ability to feel you are it, you becoming aware of being it. To walk as though you were what you want to be is to take your desire (the letter HE) out of the imagery world and put the VAV on it. I am aware of something, then I become aware of actually being or having that of which I was aware.
And the fourth, last, letter in the name of God is another HE. The two windows or doors together, they represent the objective world, molded, in harmony with that which you are conscious of being aware. It is creation itself.
God’s name is read as the awareness (YOD) that binds the two HE’s with the VAV. It is all of creation that exists in awareness. And you are that YOD, you are awareness.
God is everything that exists in this world and will forever be. It is everything that you are aware of and can be imagined. It is the fauna and flora, the science and natural discoveries, different kind of people and cultures to even magical practices such as shamanism. It is the good, the bad, it is everything that exists and will ever exist. It is everything at the same time. There are many things you cannot be conscious about but that do exist.
A simple example is you reading this article right now. As you may never have known about all that I have written here- this is you expanding your consciousness. This information has always existed, but you were never aware of it until now. The same goes for if I say to you that there are magicians in this world, people that practice magic and there are Facebook groups about it. People have reported healing themselves from different variations of cancer, and other severe illnesses or physical conditions, through “a miraculous way” as some scientists and doctors call them. People controlling their body temperature and other physical abilities through their mind. People communicating with Deities, reading the past or future, and many other things. To sum it up, we are not aware of everything in this world but everything exists even if you don’t know it. This is God, as God is everything that exists. It is the YOD, the HE, the VAV and the HE altogether.
And then of course we find now his Son, that is Jesus, Jesus the Christ or the I AM. God gives his Son dominion over the world. And you are that Son, you are the great Yeshua or Jesus that the Bible is talking about. The name Yoshua or Yeshua is anglicized as Jesus.
And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we have seen his glory, glory as of the only Son from the Father, full of grace and truth.John 1:14 (ESV)
Now, let’s take a look at how Jesus Christ or Yehoshua is written in Hebrew scripture:
The first three letters of the Fathers name are found in the Son’s name. They are almost alike. And then you add a SHIN and an AYIN, making the Son’s name read, YOD HE VAV SHIN AYIN.
As explained previously, the letter YOD means that you are aware; HE means that you are aware of something; and VAV means that you feel and become aware of being that of which you were aware. That is the power of creation and manifestation.
But then you have the fourth letter SHIN that represents the fire or the tooth. It represents the power to consume. The power to consume means to be able to put aside or to focus on which you are aware of or want to be aware of. It is present in the name because if not, you would need to live with everything that exists or everything you have lived, all at the same time. As God is everything that exists and everything at the same time, in his infinite mercy, he gives us the power to shift our awareness to consume what we now dislike, want to leave behind or rather focus on something else. Still, the name of the Father and the Son are one.
The SHIN, or flame, within the name of the Son, allows that Son to become detached from states He formerly expressed within the world. We are incapable of seeing other than the contents of our own consciousness. And why could the SHIN not be put in the father’s name? Because this simple reason: Nothing can cease to be in the Father.
The last and fifth letter in the son’s name is AYIN that represents the eyes. It represents the physical, objective world and what you see.
So these are the two names which give you dominion and the power to manifest. You have dominion as you walk the earth knowing that your consciousness is God, the one and only reality.
You become aware of something you would like to express or possess. You have the ability to feel that you are and possess what you want, which was a moment before but imaginary.
And the final result, the embodying of your assumption or manifestation, is completely outside of the offices of a three-dimensional mind. It comes to birth in a way that we may not know.
If these two names are clear in your mind’s eye, you will see that they are your eternal names. As you sit here, you are this YOD HE VAV HE; you are the YOD HE VAU SHIN AYIN from scripture.
A note on manifesting:
You have the capacity to feel what it would be like were you now other than what you are, or feel something that you wish to have. Using your imagination. As you assume that you are that which you want to be, you have completed the name of God or the YOD HE VAV HE. The final result, the objectification of your assumption, is not your concern. It will come into your reality automatically as you assume the consciousness of being it.
