Shiviti Adonai L’negdi Tamid

“I place Adonai before me always.”

1. Close your eyes and focus your attention on your breathing, concentrating as you breathe in and out for a minute or two.

2. Recite the verse¸ “Shiviti Adonai L’negdi Tamid, I place Aleph, Dalet, Nun, Yud before me always.”

Feel, say and know, “I activate the Shekhinah (the feminine presence of God) within me always.”

3.  First, you focus on the crown of your head. Try to feel a slight vibration and light pressure.  Then you say, “Shiviti Adonai….(“I activate Adonai (Feminine Presence) within me always.”) Then see the light increase greatly on your crown and feel increased vibration on the crown of your head.  Visualize Adonai in green on the crown of your head.

4.  Feel your right forehead vibrating slightly and visualize a pale light over the right forehead.  Repeat “Shiviti Adonai….”(“I activate Adonai…)” and see your forehead and the right side of your face now covered with a strong light .  Feel the whole right side of the face and forehead vibrating strongly.  See Adonai written in green characters on your right forehead.

5.  Repeat the same for the left forehead….

6.  Now look at your right shoulder. Feel it vibrating slowly; see it covered in pale light. Put your arms straight out. Recite “Shiviti Adonai…” Feel your right arm vibrating noticeably. See your whole right arm covered in light.  See Adonai written in green characters on your right shoulder.

7. Repeat the same for the left shoulder/arm.

8.  Now feel your solar plexus vibrating slowly, see it covered in pale light.  Recite “Shiviti Adonai….”  Feel your whole chest area now filled with a strong light, and vibrating strongly.  See Adonai written in green characters on your solar plexus.

9.  Now feel your right hip vibrating slowly and visualize a pale light over the right hip. Repeat “Shiviti Adonai….” See your right hip and right leg now covered with a strong light and vibrating strongly. See Adonai written in green characters on your right hip.

10.  Do the same for the left hip/leg.

11.  Focus on your lower abdomen.  Feel your lower abdomen vibrating slowly and visualize a pale light over the lower abdomen.  Repeat “Shiviti Adonai…” See your lower abdomen now covered with a strong light and vibrating strongly. See Adonai written in green characters on your lower abdomen.

12.  Now feel your feet vibrating slowly, and covered in a pale light.  Repeat “Shiviti Adonai…” See your feet now covered with a strong light and vibrating strongly.  See Adonai written in green characters across your feet.

13. Feel and know that the purpose of this meditation is to liberate Adonai/Shekhinah from Her exile and one way in which we do this is to visualize Her on our different energy centers, the Sefirot. When we do this each sefirah vibrates communicating to the sefirot above, below and next to it.

14. Recite and visualize the verse in the two permutations below¸

Shiviti אדני L’negdi Tamid, I place Adonai, אדני [in green letters] before me always.”

&  “Shiviti Yod Hey Vav Hey, יהוה,  L’negdi Tamid”, שִׁוִּ֬יתִי יְהוָ֣ה לְנֶגְדִּ֣י תָמִ֑יד,  

“I place  יהוה  Y H V H [in purple letters] before me always.”

15. Recognize that Adonai, the feminine presence of God and Y-H-V-H, the masculine presence of God, are identical. Adonai, the Shekhinah resides within us. We visualized אדני Adonai written externally on our energy centers. She is waiting to be joined by יהוה  Y H V H.

When they are joined, the feminine presence of God is completely liberated. When Adonai (in green) and Y H V H (in purple) are joined together we help complete God, Hashem shleimut. This complete God, made up of feminine and masculine qualities, vibrates powerfully inspiring each of us to be more healthy, more strong, more happy and like God, more complete.

16. Move through the sefirotic energy centers as above (#3) and visualize יאהדונהי YAHDVNHY in Hebrew, alternating purple and green as appropriate, knowing that you are becoming more healthy, strong, happy and complete.
