2-4b The Wheel of Letters

Close your eyes and breathe out.

You are at the center of a double circle of stones
carved with Hebrew letters.
One by one, the letters are shining and sounding their sounds.

Two stones begin to shine, sounding their letters together. As they do so,
a ray of light enters the circle.

Now two other letters glow and sound, then two others.
Each time a pair of letters glows and sounds, a ray of light appears within the circle until there are many, many rays of light.

What do you hear, see, or feel
as the lights interweave with one another?

The lights dim
and the circle of stones falls silent. In the silence, know
that you have heard and seen
a name of God.

Breathe out and open your eyes.
