Metaphysical meaning of Shemiramoth (mbd)
Shemiramoth, she-mir'-a-moth (Heb.) --name of the Most High; fame of the highest; brilliant exaltation; heights of the heavens.

a A Levite, a musician at the time that David had the Ark brought to Jerusalem from the house of Obed-edom (I Chron. 15:18). b A Levite, one of those whom Jehoshaphat, king of Judah, sent throughout the cities of Judah to teach the people from the book of the law (II Chron. 17:8).

Meta. Very high spiritual illumination and realization (name of the Most High, fame of the highest, heights of the heavens--the heavens here being the highest realms of consciousness in man), spiritual consciousness, the Christ mind. Paul tells of a man (presumably himself) who was caught up to the third heaven, "into Paradise," where he heard unspeakable words; he was shown things beyond the possibility of description by one person to another, because, as Paul tells us in another place, the things of God are revealed by Spirit; that is, they must come from the Holy Spirit within man, direct to the soul or consciousness of the individual who receives them.
