Meaning of Letter R

Letter R corresponds to Resh (Raysh) in the Hebrew alphabet, meaning head. This letter is related to the spiritual faculty within our head, which is the pineal gland.

When you look at this gland closely, it resembles the shape of letter R. Pineal gland gets its name because it looks like a pinecone.

When this gland is activated, we will be raised up to the stage of spiritual illumination that eventually lifts up the veil of the unseen. Knowledge will come to us not through the intellect but by the intuitive knowing from within our body.

That is, we can acquire knowledge by learning but we can only gain wisdom by living.

In esoteric teachings, letter R means to Rise above one’s material thinking to seek spiritual understanding. It is the symbol of Resurrection, which means to die in material shape and reborn again in spiritual form.

In Egyptian school, occultists refer letter R as the standing position of Horus, who is a Hawk God. As I said in the meaning of letter N, Horus is the God of “thrice wise” symbolizing “wisdom in action”.

His symbol is the Hawk because of its power of action and vision. When the hawk captures a prey, it thrusts its wing to gain altitude, making er, er, er sound. Therefore, letter R resembles the “er” sound that the hawk makes to gain altitude.

According to Resurrect Isis, it is also said that the “er” sound of the hawk’s wings also symbolizes the root source of the name Horus (Heru) and Osiris (Assur). When we add this “er” or “or” sound to some verb, it will transform the verb into the actor. For example: hunt-hunter, save-savior, kill-killer.

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!
