In Israel, the expression d’bar (pronounced ‘dabar’) means both “word” and “thing”. This is why any name in Hebrew is understood as describing the essence of what it names. This is possible through the codes extracted from the composition of letters, their numeric value and other studies.
After creating Adam, Hashem gave him the task of naming all that existed. Each choice carried with it a wealth of information beyond our actual comprehension.
When explained like this, it is easy to see how a consultation with the otiot may reveal the real nature of a situation. I particularly like to differentiate “divinatory practice” from “oracular practice”, although both are treated similarly. The divinatory practice occupies itself with the future. However possible, it constitutes a limited use of the tool.
Differently, in the oracular art we work with the “know thyself” maxim inscribed in the Temple of Apollo at Delphi. What does that mean? We hope the world is a better place for our life to be more fulfilling. The secret however lies in self-knowledge. When you know yourself, you gain the correct understanding of everything else.
Whatever the case, you need to keep in mind three things: 1. life is not written in stone, so change is possible in some cases – both in terms of predictions and behavior; 2. we should never establish any kind of dependency with the source of information (or their intermediary); 3. the idea with the Otiot, the Oracle of the Hebrew Letters is to always work from the inside out, not the other way around.
L’chaim! Good travels. May all benefit from it on their path.
