The ” Cohen Gadol ” (High Priest) entered into the ” Kodesh Hakodashim ” ( Holy of Holies) he would pronounce The explicit Divine Name using all the aspects of his voice. It is through the power of his voice that this complete Divine unification is achieved. If the Cohen Gadol only thought of the Name, he did not have the same result . So too when saying “Thilim” (Psalms) prayers or learning Torah. One has to pronounce the sounds of the letters that form the words . The “Chida” , one of the students of Rav Shalom Sharabi , the Rashas”h, writes in his commentary on the “Thilim” that if one reads “Thilim” and does not pronounce it out loud , he makes no “tikun” (fixing) in the worlds at all. This seems to be a big error in this generation, those who pray moving their lips not saying a word. Such prayer is not meant to be said in silence like the “Amida” (The standing prayer given to us by the Prophets)
From Safer Yerzera ( the Book of Creation) the Book of creation we learn that all the Holy letters of creation (Hebrew) draw their Energy and are pronounced by the 5 organs of speech. The lips the palate, tounge, throat and teeth. It is interesting that according to secular knowledge there are 5 dimensions of VOICE.
VOLUME, ARTICULATION, PITCH, EMPHASIS AND RATE.
