Of the name יהו”ה (yhv”h) the first letter Yod emanates the spiritual awareness, creative inspiration, this is the level of Soul called “chayah. The second letter Hey creates the mental, it gives intellectual powers, understanding, this is the level of soul called “Nashama”. The 3rd letter Vav forms and reveals the emotional soul of Man, it is called the “Ruach”. The final Hey eminates the Animal soul called “Nefesh” and makes  physical world continually.

There are many worlds, the world of Atzilut is the place of Emanation of the Divine energies, to it is no aspect of physicality. It is created from the Yod of יהו”ה (yhv”h),

The world of Beriah is Creation , the Hey of הו”ה, the level of the mental in the realms. Contemplative powers are emanated from this world to the soul called “nashama”. Yetzirah is Formation, the Vav of הו”ה, the level of the emotional. From here our “Ruach” emotional soul receives its composition continually. Asiyah is Doing, the Hey of הו”ה, the level of the physical in time and space. This is the realm where our soul called “Nefesh” dwells in its body .

Each Letter of the name, and level of the soul exists within the other, and without the other. All are within one, and the One is within all.יהו”ה is the One, there is no second, or any other. All Four levels, Atzilut, Beriah, Yetzirah, and Asiyah. All are present in all. All together form the body of יהו”ה .

“Hoveh,” (Hebrew)  means “to be”. By adding the letter Yod, the verb is transformed into the active, command tense. As the letter י (Yud) before a word makes is active. Thus the Name of G-d יהו”ה,  thus means “Being”, in the active sense, or “Active Being”. For this reason, this name is considered to be unpronounceable, for one cannot reduce the whole of Active Being into one sound, that a Human alone can pronouce. The presence of יהו”ה exists in time and space, and therefore can be perceived and experienced, but this experience cannot be limited in the sense of sound to be pronounced like any other word. So יהו”ה can be experienced, but not pronounced , it has no one sound, for all sounds are within it. It is aspect of the infinite so cannot be pronouced in its most profound sense, do it is called the “ineffable name”. The “Infinite” is revealed through “יהו”ה “, creating the finite reality of this world also.

There is “Ayn” (in Hebrew means nothingness-this is the infinite which is as nothing compared to the finite reality of this world, having no comparison), which is “Is Not” (all that has not yet become manifest is here) and there is Yesh (meaning in Hebrew that which is, does exist),  Yesh is to Ayn, as body is to soul. All “what is” cloaks itself, garment upon garment, so that even the most clothed expression still in its essence is a manifestation of what “Is Not”. Meaning the infinite energies of GOD are within all. The garments of “What Is” act as filters so as to diffuse the energy of the infinite light of God.

The “Ayn” (in Hebrew means nothingness-this is the infinite which is as nothing compared to the finite reality of this world,having no comparison ) is in the י of יהו”ה . Yesh (meaning in Hebrew that which is, does exist) come into being from the letters הו”ה of יהו”ה .

The Ayn Sof (Infiniteness of GOD ) is manifest in time and space as יהו”ה

“Hoveh,” (Hebrew)  means “to be”. By adding the letter Yod, the verb is transformed into the active, command tense. As the letter י (Yud) before a word makes is active. Thus the Name of G-d יהו”ה,  thus means “Being”, in the active sense, or “Active Being”. Without movement, Consciousness remains dormant, asleep unto itself. The Name of G-d יהו”ה, has the active force that propels motion, change growth. By the name that which exists in the infinite as potential but “Is Not” can be made to become ‘What Is” can be made manifest.

But without movement, Consciousness remains dormant, asleep unto itself. The beginning is when the Sleeper has awaken the Awareness,of the Primordial Consciousness of Ayn-The Infiniteness of GOD which shifts from the passive to the active state, manifesting”What Is” from that which is  “Is Not yet”-the infinite.

There is now Ayn (the unmanifest in the infinate) and there is Yesh (that made manifest). Ayn is the Soul of G-d, and יהו”ה is the Body.

At this point Creation, as we know it, has begun.

This is a great secret :The entity we know as man embraces  Consciousness it is the “what is”, and  Unconsciousness is the what “is not yet” (the infiniteness of God). These in turn correspond to body and soul. The Primordial Awareness, that is the beginning is itself Unconsciousness. This is the true  purpose of creation.

What for us is true consciousness, is truly unconsciousness. What dwells within the Human unconscious, is the true Awareness. As it is above, so must it be below. This is the awakening of the sleeper. As the Primordial Sleeper awakens, He begins to Be. What He “Is”, is Atzilut (the source of his soul power of emination. Let him work with the GOD to create reality.

The sleepers below must awaken, for GOD, the Primordial Ayn (Infinate of GOD) above was, as if, asleep and has awaken and become Yesh (a manifest active source in his soul) As it is above, so must it be below.

The divine name is not unpronounceable, as we are commanded by YHWH to make oaths in His name, etc. The name itself is from the הוה HWH verb root, which means to be, exist. This verb is attested as far back as the Akkadian.

When trying to understand the nature of the name, we should keep in mind, that YHWH first revealed His name as a verb to Moses as:
אהיה אשר אהיה EHYeH asher EHYeH. He then informed Moses to tell the people that אהיה EhYeH sent him. The Text of Ex 3:15 then goes on to say that YHWH continued speaking to Moses, and that Moses was to say to the people, יהוה YHWH the deity of your fathers….sent me. We are then informed that the last construction of the Name was to be His memorial forevermore.

The Name was revealed originally as a 1st person imperfect form of the verb היה HYH, but was finalized as a 3rd person imperfect form of the verb הוה HWH. The original aspect of the name was fully conjugated as EhYeH, showing the first person imperfect form, so it is logical to also expect that YHWH to be the 3rd imperfect of HWH, and hence would be conjugated as יֶהֱוֶה YeHeWeH. That the YHWH form is a verb there is no doubt. The initial Y is the sign of the imperfect 3rd masculine verb. The final H is the matre lectionis (vowel letter), as it appears in any other verb of the III-ה conjugation. This verb does not appear in the Old Testament in the 3rd masculine imperfect form except for the Name YHWH. There is one exception, which is Ecc 11:3, however there it appears in the Aramaic form, yet is pointed as Y’hu, after the shortened form of HYH, as Y’hi.

Aramaic is a North Western Semitic Language which supplanted Akkadian in the East, and is on the same table as Ugarit and Canaanite. Avraham probably spoke Akkadian, and its replacement Aramaic. He would have learned Canaanite, of which Hebrew is a dialect, upon entry into Canaan. Aramaic and Canaanite, especially the Hebrew subgroup, has much in common, such as cognates. One of these cognates is the verb הוה HWH. Aramaic weak and hollow verbs, follow the same conjugations as their Hebrew counterparts, with the exception that in III-ה verbs, the final H is replaced not by the He mater lectionis, but by the Alef. So in Aramaic the YHWH verb would be written as יֶהֱוֵא YHWA, and would be inflected as YeHeWei, which is identical to the Hebrew YeHeWeH. One very noticeable fact is that while the 3rd imperfect YHWA is used extensively in the Aramaic portions of the Old Testament, the name YHWH does not appear. I believe this is because the verb would be confused with the Aramic conjugation of the YHWA. The HWH verb is used in the Aramaic portions of the Old Testament much like the HYH is used in the Hebrew portions. YHWH would have no problem in e Hebrew sections, but would not fair as well in the Aramaic.

Seeing that Abraham was an Aramaean, and probably spoke both Akkadian and Aramaic, he would have been accustomed to the Akkadian conjugation of the 3rd imperfect form of the HWY, which would be IHaWei, which is very similar to the Aramaic 1st imperfect of HWH EHeWei.

To make a long story short, the name itself is a verb, which we can all agree upon based upon chapter 3 of Exodus. Then it should be no problem with pronouncing the name based upon the rules of Hebrew inflection according tot he conjugation of the I-ה III-ה weak hollow verbs, and hence the name should be properly pronounced as YeHeWeH.
