Metaphysical meaning of Shemaiah (mbd)
Shemaiah, she-ma'-iah (Heb.)--Jehovah has heard; hearkening unto Jah; Jehovah hears; obedience to Jehovah; fame of Jehovah.

Between twenty and thirty Israelitish men by this name are mentioned in the Bible (I Kings 12:22, and so forth). The Shemaiah of I Chronicles 9:16 is called Shammua in Nehemiah 11:17.

Meta. The attentive, receptive, obedient (to Spirit) attitude of thought greatly multiplied throughout one's whole Israelite consciousness--or one's higher and more religious and true thoughts and beliefs--and throughout one's being; also the increased understanding, the conscious fellowship between one and one's inner Christ, the assurance that one is heard of Spirit, that is the result of the obedient, attentive (to Spirit) attitude of mind (Jehovah has heard, hearkening unto Jah, obedience to Jehovah, fame of Jehovah). There were many Israelites by this name, showing that many thoughts of this nature have place in the consciousness. (See SHAMMUA.)
