Tikkun 70 – 81
The Tetragrmaton, YHVH, is revealed in every precept.
The word for precept is מצוה. The first two letters in Atbash, אתבש is יה.
‘Atbash’, אתבש is the kabbalisic way to reveal a different aspect of light that in the vessel. Using this method, the Alef that is the first letter of the Hebrew Alef-Bet, is replaced with the last letter. Bet, that is the second letter is replaced with the Shin that is one before the last letter. And so on.
The two letters מצ, numerically 130 is 10 times אהבה, meaning love. The other two letters וה VH, are the letters of the name for Zeir Anpin and Malchut.
Just by the study of the word we learn the process of using the precepts to draw light into our lives. The H is our vessel and the desire to connect should arise to make the positive action. The Vav is the aspect of Zeir Anpin and the Torah that is the tool for us to study and use as a bridge to the higher level and when we do so, the concealed light of the YH that is Chokmah and Binah, ‘turn’ their faces to us and shine their light, like parents welcoming a loving child.
The Zohar teaches us here, that the person’s positive actions are revealed in the four colors of the hair, eye, the four chambers of the ear and the four colors of the face.
Rabbi Shimon tells us that the names of all body parts are ‘aliases’ to the name of the God that is dressed in them. The angels that relate to these names elevate the action of the Mitzva (precept) and draw the beneficent light related to that action.
If one tries to call angels to draw light and benefits using incorrect names, it will not work for him.
The Zohar, in the last sentence of this section, says it explicitly. We should not try to use angels that are not already part of us. Before asking for healing, we should pray for the health of others to create angels of healing around us. If we want sustenance, we should bless everyone in our path and wish them success, even your competition, because angels of success will come to you. Don’t be jealous if the other person ‘takes’ your soul mate because jealousy angels will surround you.
Every action we do creates angels, good or bad. We have the ability to choose with our actions, the kind of angels that will be around us. It is your free choice.
