Spiritual meaning of letter A

Meaning of Letter A

According to esoteric school, the first letter that God designed was A, meaning Aleph in Hebrew and Alif in Arabic. It is necessary to breathe out (F) when we pronounce its sound. Thus, it represents the breath of God. Aleph is both life and breath. Letter A represents “ruach” in Hebrew, “prana” in Sanskrit, “pneuma” in Greek, and “spiritus” in Latin.

Aleph symbolizes the oxhead and its astrological sign is Taurus, which is the symbol of physical reproduction. The oxhead is a symbolic representation of the uterus with the horns being the fallopian tubes. Altogether, letter A represents physical reproduction.

In the Bible, the First Commandment is “thou shalt have no other Gods before me”, which means that there is only One God. When God took out the rib of Adam, he took the vertical line of letter A and reverse it. Therefore, we have V or E”V”E.

The shape of Aleph is two Yods: one is in Heaven and another is on Earth. The diagonal line is Vav, which is the link between the higher realm and the lower realm. In Kabbalistic teachings, Aleph represents the act of creating something out of nothing. It is the hidden spiritual Oneness that lies behind the veil of duality.

In spirituality, letter A is the secret God power manifested in Man. Nothing exists without Air. It is the spiritual principle of all – the breath of life. In Greek, A is called “Alpha”, meaning “first”, or “the beginning of all things”. The Roman borrowed this idea from Greek and simply called it “A”.

Letter A has 3 lines, which is the symbolic depiction of the Creative Principle – the Holy Trinity of Will, Wisdom, and Love.

In numerology, the letter A is equivalent to number 1. This is why we have A car, A house, A phone because A means one and unit (y). A is a picture of a man standing well balanced on 2 feet. Thus, it represents leadership, executive, and initiative ability.

Due to Air Element, a person who has A in the first letter or vowel of name is susceptible to cold and respiratory problems. Thus, if your name starts with A, you should never smoke to protect your lung.

Letter A and pyramid

Letter A is the missing capstone of the pyramid you see in the back of the U.S one-dollar bill. The ancient Romans believe that the spiritual meaning of letter A is the symbol of heaven, which represents Wisdom. You can see that the top of letter A is heading towards heaven while its feet are on the earth.

In the mystic school, eyes are wisdom symbols because they believe that “Seeing is knowing”. Thus, the capstone on the pyramid represents the All-seeing Eye, or the Eye of God, which is also All-knowing. Just as A symbolizes the highest wisdom, the All-seeing Eye indicates the peak of heavenly wisdom.

According to Resurrect Isis, the smaller version of “A” is “a”, representing the natural position of a woman bearing a child. Thus, the capital A concerns with things in heaven while the lowercase “a” deals with things happening on Earth. We all come to this world from “A” – from the breath of God and from “a” – the belly of our mother.

Note: If you want to understand deeper about the esoteric knowledge of letters and numbers, I would strongly recommend you read The Secret Science Of Numerology. I use this book as a reference for this article, so check this out!

Positive Traits

In numerology, if the first letter of your first name starts with A, you are Active, Aggressive, Ambitious, Authoritative, and Analytical in personality. The numerical value of A is 1, so you are innovative, inventive, and independent. An A in the U.S report card means the highest and the best. Therefore, you want to be perfect in everything.

Spiritually, people who have A in their names feel an urge to inspire others, to take charge of things, and to reach their fullest potential. You are a person of faith, which means you rely much on your intuition to guide your action. Setting goals is essential for A person as you are very self-motivated in nature.
