Spiritual meaning of letter H

Meaning of Letter H

Cheth or Heth is the 8th letter in the Hebrew alphabet, meaning field or fence, corresponding to letter H in English.

Therefore, the Lord God sent him out from the garden of Eden, to cultivate the ground from which he was taken. (Genesis 3:23)

The ground (or field) here is our body, mind, and consciousness. When we “till the ground”, it means that we have to use the power of H (discipline) to cultivate our virtues and righteousness in our actions.

Only after that, we will be accepted back to the Garden of Eden. Thus, the spiritual meaning of letter H is the “ground” or the “stone” that Masons need to refine to spiritually ascend higher to the heavens.

H also symbolizes a fence. It is the fence that guards against our own lower instincts leading us astray. H is the limitation and self-restraint we set for ourselves, and it can be either good or bad depending on our choices.

The numerical value of letter H is 8. It is made of two O; one is above another, so it is the symbolic figure of the esoteric doctrine: “As above, so below”.

That is, 8 is a representation of Karma, meaning “you shall reap what you sow”.

One special thing about this spiritual law is that it is eternal. Just as you can draw letter 8 endlessly without lifting your hands up, the law of Karma is perpetual, continual, and is guaranteed that it will work.

Letter Hé in the Hebrew alphabet also corresponds to letter H. It is the symbol of the soul’s windows, looking above and looking below. When the Greeks borrowed this letter from the Phoenician, they took out the bottom and top bars. Thus, we have H.

Looking at letter H from another perspective, it resembles a ladder, signifying the ability to rise above the horizon after the first 7 steps. H is the essence of our human being that seeks to transcend our animal nature to spiritual actualization.

However, the ladder has 2 directions: up or down. Therefore, it totally depends on our choices that we can either ascend or descend.

According to the esoteric teachings of the Egyptians, H symbolizes the vault of the heavenly canopy on the Day of Judgement. In the Last Day, they believe that Osiris will sit under this canopy to judge other’s deeds.

This concept corresponds to the numerological value of H, which is 8. As 8 is in perfect balance and sees both sides of a coin, it represents the ability to execute good and fair judgment in numerology.

Therefore, Osiris will use the power of H (or 8) to judge justly among men.

According to Resurrect Isis, the lower-cased h looks like the image of a hut, representing our Home and Habitation. As its nature suggests, H deals with affairs on both heaven and earth.

Meaning of Letter H in Your Name

Positive Traits

In numerology, if the first letter of your first name starts with H, you are Healthy, Homely, Honest, and Headstrong in personality. As H is related to Hands, people with H in their names are builders of the material world who are endowed with the power of manifestation.

You see well on both sides of a situation and have the ability to make fair judgment due to H’s numerical value of 8. The image of “h” symbolically represents the figure of Saturn without a vertical line. Thus, H people are very Hardworking, patient, and persevere.

You are either material or spiritual in personality, which is the reason why you are usually being tested. Yet, once you overcome challenges and choose the spiritual path, success, prosperity, and fortune will come abundantly.

Negative Traits

On the negative side, H can be selfish, intolerant, and overcautious. As you are already aware of money, you may become too materialistic if you don’t restrain yourself. 

H people can be either a good leader or a terrible tyrant. You should learn how to use your power of vision properly for the benefit of the whole society, not for selfish ends.
