Hebrew Language of Creation: Hebrew Letter Gimel | High Priestess Card | Da’ath and Gnosis

 

Gimel

Ghimel is the 3rd principle which arises to resolve and harmonize these opposites. Ghimel links and balances between the Aleph and Beith. It is a dynamic balance between opposing powers, so Ghimel is a letter of constant transformation, change and motion, and translates literally as camel, an animal we associate with motion and travel between faraway places. Ghimel includes the opposites of both giving and receiving, and reward and punishment, creating balance and motion between these opposites.

Ghimel resolves the giver and receiver (Aleph and Beith), so it represents giving and receiving. It represents kindness and cultivation, the organic nurturance that causes things to grow also means giving and the leg of the Ghimel is said to represent the rich man running to give charity to the poor. It signifies the Creator’s eternal benevolence to all creation, manifested with abundant life and prosperity.

The Ghimel also represents reward and punishment. The word represents the giving of both reward and punishment. The laws of the created world are based on the rule of judgment blessings are able to flow to those who do good, while wrongdoing blocks the receipt of goodness and abundance. Thus both kindness and justice are maintained in balance.
