I hear this word used a lot.  You hear many people speak of the "shekinah glory", often in ignorant "parroting" of something they heard somewhere.

The word "shakan" which means abiding, dwelling, or habitation is in the hebrew text 128 times (Strong's 7931).

The hebrew word "shekinah" is not in the hebrew biblical text and is a "feminine" form.

It comes from the jewish mystical tradition, or kabbalah (a form of Babylonian mystery religion) and in this religion shekinah refers to the "divine feminine" or a feminine aspect of God.
