Tikkun 70 – 105
The Zohar here, reveals to us secrets of male and female of Keter. The Zohar asks the question of what is the difference between Keter (Crown) and ‘Ateret’ (Tiara).
כתר, Keter is from the side of the letter א Alef that is constructed from י,ו,ד Yod, Vav and Dalet. Numerical value is 20 as the first letter of the word Keter כ. Alef is also the first letter for the holy name אהיה, AHYH that is associated with keter.
Keter is male and Atara is female. The letter Yod of the name turns to Atara for the Vav that is Zeir Anpin and the aspect of the Torah.
The letter Yod of אדני ADNY is Atara for the head of Tzadik who makes connection to Zeir Anpin, which is the Vav of the name.
The Zohar also teaches us that every Sefira has Keter and Atara that bring the aspects of Male and Female. The Yod is also the Atara of Yessod, which is in the the aspect of the penis in the body. The circumcision reveals the ‘Atara’ that is the Yod of the name and allows the child have a better connection with the light. The penis is the aspect of Vav (length) and Yod (the revealed tip). With it, the Vav breaks the curtain (Hymen) and penetrates the vessel to channel the light from the Vav, Zeir Anpin to Malchut.
In this process the Atara serves as connection to Keter of Yessod. There is a parallel between the process of creation to the act of Vav (aspect the name of 45) that extends itself a line of light that comes from the Endless into the space that was left after the first Tzimtzum. With this light a process of life began in the world.
The Hebrew word for penis is זין that is the name of the 7th letter ז .that is constructed from Vav and Yod as Atara (Tiara) on top of it.
“ אֵשֶׁת-חַיִל, עֲטֶרֶת בַּעְלָהּ; וּכְרָקָב בְּעַצְמוֹתָיו מְבִישָׁה”
“A woman of valor is a crown to her husband; but she that doeth shamefully is as rottenness in his bones.”
A woman can build or destroy her man. If she has the higher consciousness then she becomes a ‘crown’ to her husband but if she is far from the light, he can fall into darkness and spiritual decay.
On Friday night, the woman of the house lights the candles to connect to the Light of Shabbat. We then welcome the Shabbat (the seventh day) and sing the song ‘A woman of Valor’ אשת חיל, a term that comes from the above verse. The man is the aspect of Zeir Anpin and when the woman adds her light they can draw great blessings into their lives. For many reasons Friday night is the best time for a couple to join with love, unity and higher consciousness.
