8 is a number. It is a symbol. 8 is a pharmaceutical of formulas in the realms of power healers and Rabbis draw from and into in their work for others. As a sacred number it the symbol of infinity and it has been the symbol walked between the animals sacrificed and cut in twain during the covenant ceremony between two men in the ancient Hebrew ritual. 8 is also the number of Jesus. This is resurrection. This number brings the dance of life-death-resurrection to paper, to voice of power to rituals and joy to ceremony.
The Hebrew letters are forms of Life, of Creation. Without further explanation the number 8 in the Hebrew language is Hhayt. "8 is the sphere of storage of all undifferentiated energy, or unstructured substance. It expresses the most unevolved state of energy, as opposed to its achieved freedom in Zayn (7)." This is how Carlo Suares describes it in his life study of Qabala in his book: The Cipher of Genesis (p. 63).
Also, the typical Goddess form of a woman has always at some point in many women's lives captured her essence in the shape of the number 8! A woman's body type with this figure arouses man's manhood in deep ways often beyond the ability to explain why and how! In the body of a woman the possibility of enlightenment, of empowerment and penetration into the realms of masculinity guided by the feminine principles of the Womb are boundless!
