The Zohar reveals that Balak had knowledge about the ways of Satan and how he got ‘dressed’ in the image of an Ox. That knowledge gave him the ability to do all kinds of magic and witchcraft.
We live under the government of the Tree of Knowledge Good and Bad. This is the world of Tikkun where we have evil side that wishes to draw us into it.
Balak knew the dark side but needed Balaam, who was on the level of Da’at of the other side, to help him remove the energy of the Israelites. Balaam didn’t success in the mission assigned to him by Balak and even had a prophecy related to the end of days and Mashiach.
Some would ask how and why the negative side could have such powers and vision of the future.
There are many types of people and systems that help us see the future. All those systems that rely on a physical object or objects reveal the future through the negative system because matter is part of it. Some may reveal true events in the past or future of a person but there will always be an element that is negative and can drain the energy of the person that asked for the reading. It’s the same with mediums who are communicating with the dead. The messages they deliver may carry elements of truth but also elements that may bring negative outcome.
The only most reliable system is the astrology. The Zodiac system is part of creation and the movement of the constellations is set by the Creator. The only posible problem with this system is the person who reads and interprets the chart.
The highest and pure level belongs to righteous kabbalists that know the secrets of the spiritual system and can elevate their soul to a level where they can see the future. It is a rare level and hard to achieve.
I strongly suggest to those who keep Tarot cards, oracle’s, crystal balls books and other similar items and related books to keep them out of the house. They can not coexist with the Zohar.
