Tikkun 70 – 70
In previous articles we learned about the Nikkud and the Hebrew letters and their relations to the Sefirot. The Zohar teaches us that, as the Hebrew letters change their energy level based on the Nikkud they hold, so does a person’s face. The shape and look of the face changes.
“ תִּתְקְפֵהוּ לָנֶצַח, וַיַּהֲלֹךְ; מְשַׁנֶּה פָנָיו, וַתְּשַׁלְּחֵהוּ.”
“You prevail for ever against him, and he keeps walking; You change his face, and send him away”
In this verse from Job we learn that for the Tikun process, God changes the person’s face before sending him back in a new incarnation to make corrections in this world.
On our face, we carry the ‘story’ of our correction and the energy that we have to work on.
The Nikkud animate the letters and give them energy of life. In a similar way we have angels that is reflected from our face and hands.
“ כֹּחַ מַעֲשָׂיו, הִגִּיד לְעַמּוֹ– לָתֵת לָהֶם, נַחֲלַת גּוֹיִם”
“He has told his people the power (כֹּחַ) of His works, in giving them the heritage of the nations.”
The word כֹּחַ for ‘power’ has numerical value of 28, same as the number of angels of the 9 Sefirot above.
Malchut has no light of its own but God gave us the power through the sacred text of the Torah and Zohar to connect to forces and energies that is above us.
The hands can also reveal the energy of a person and his Tikkun process to us and the Zohar connects them here in one place.
The word for hand in Hebrew is יד, numerically 14. The number of bone segments in the five fingers is also 14 and for both hands it is 28 as the numerical value for כח, ‘power’.
Now we know what kind of power we have in our hands to shape our life and our corrected ‘faces’.
