Spiritual meaning of letter X

Meaning of Letter X

Letter X is associated with Samekh (S) in the Hebrew alphabet, which is the symbol of a serpent (or dragon) swallowing its own tail. In the occult teachings, S is the symbol of Ouroboros, representing the cycle of life, death, and rebirth.

The serpent always represents wisdom. The cycle signifies completion, perfection, and eternity. Thus, X is like a serpent shedding its own skin to prepare for its new life ahead.

Symbolically, the skin represents the ego or the lower self that we need to get rid of to prepare for our spiritual life.

In esoteric teachings, this is the law of Karma or the law of continual cycle that cannot be broken. In basic understanding, X is the law of cause and effect: we shall reap what we sow.

In other words, the spiritual meaning of X is the karma that must come through our deeds. We cannot put the seed of a banana and hope that it will grow like an apple tree.

In Hebrew, Samekh means prop or bow, representing a person shooting an arrow by using a bow. When we pronounce X, it sounds like the hiss of the serpents, which is similar to the sound when we shoot an arrow. Symbolically, the bow is letter B, meaning mouth.

The shoot from the bow is the words that we speak to our body, which can either hiss (wound) or kiss (heal). This is why letter X can either go up or go down. It can be either “love” or “lust”, which is the vibration of its value in numerology (6).

X is the cross the Christ was crucified upon. When we cross something, it means we get rid of it. Therefore, the whole resurrection scene can be understood as getting rid of the old material self in order to be born again in a new spiritual self.

In the spiritual school of Egypt, letter X symbolizes the crook (heka) and flail (nekhakha) of Osiris. The crook identifies Osiris as the shepherd of sheep, while the flail is used as the tool for separating grains from their husks in farming methods.

Symbolically, the sheep are our animal nature and the field is our body.

Spiritually, when we guide our herds, it means that we control our instinctual nature of the lower self. When we separate the grains from the husk, it signifies that we gain the ability to distinguish between good and evil.

According to Resurrect Isis, the Egyptians also believed that letter X symbolizes the “Genetic crossing” across human civilization. Osiris was known as the “breeders” because we slew every man and kept women for breeding every time he conquered a nation. Thus, his descendants nowadays are “across” many nations.

In Egyptian mythology, Osiris was killed by Set, an evil god, who spreads his body in different locations of the world. Isis, who is Osiris’s wife, later resurrects him by collecting all of his bodily parts together.

When you see Osiris in his tomb, his hands are placed to resemble the shape of an X. Therefore, letter X is also a symbol of death and rebirth in Egypt.
