Shekinah

"Indwelling Spirit. That aspect of God that is close to and accessible to Creation. While it offen simply means "the presence of God", it is more often treated as a personified hypostasis of the devine ... It became central to the metaphysics of medieval Kabbalah. Much Kabbalistic thought is devoted to the idea that because the feminine Shekinah is separated from the masculine Holy One, the One God is, in a sense, fragmented and that the true cosmic unity has to be restored by human action. The alienation of the Shekinah/Malchut from the masculine side of the Godhead and its re-coupling with the Blessed Holy One/Tiferet is the preeminant obsession of the Zohar".
