Daily Zohar # 1514 – Bechukotai – How to practice pure magic
13. וְעַל זֶה כָּתוּב בְּכֻלָּם אֱלֹהִים; וַיָּבֹא אֱלֹהִים אֶל בִּלְעָם, וַיָּבֹא אֱלֹהִים אֶל לָבָן, וַיָּבֹא אֱלֹהִים אֶל אֲבִימֶלֶךְ. הוּא בָּא אֲלֵיהֶם, וְלֹא הֵם אֵלָיו, שֶׁהֲרֵי אֵין לָהֶם מָקוֹם זָמִין. וְאִם תֹּאמַר, הֲרֵי כָּתוּב אֱלֹהִים! אֶלָּא שֶׁהַשֵּׁם הַזֶּה מִשְׁתַּתֵּף בַּכֹּל, וַאֲפִלּוּ עֲבוֹדָה זָרָה גַּם נִקְרֵאת אֱלֹהִים, אֱלֹהִים אֲחֵרִים, וּבִכְלַל שֶׁל אֱלֹהִים אֲחֵרִים אֵלֶּה מְמֻנִּים, וּבִכְלַל זֶה הָיוּ, וְלָכֵן נִקְרָא כָּךְ. וְאוֹתוֹ רָשָׁע הָיָה אוֹמֵר בִּכְשָׁפָיו וְקוֹרֵא לוֹ, וּבָא אֵלָיו. וּמִשּׁוּם כָּךְ כָּתוּב, לִינוּ פֹה הַלַּיְלָה וַהֲשִׁבֹתִי אֶתְכֶם דָּבָר כַּאֲשֶׁר יְדַבֵּר ה’ אֵלָי. אוֹתוֹ רָשָׁע מְשַׁבֵּחַ אֶת עַצְמוֹ, שֶׁהֲרֵי לֹא כָתוּב בּוֹ, אֶלָּא וַיָּבֹא אֱלֹהִים.
Sorcerers use the four elements of earth, wind, fire and water together with words (spells) to create magic. They use materials of this world together with impure spiritual energies to control matter and the spirit (souls) of men. We studied the aspect of night and darkness in the previous DZ. We know that these forces represent lack of light. They are opposite to the light and act like magnets, ‘sucking’ any available energy on their path. During the day the light is strong and the negative forces can’t handle higher levels of light.
The Torah forbids the connection to any kind of negative forces.
“When you enter the land which YHVH your God gives you, you shall not learn to imitate the detestable things of those nations.”
‘Entering the land’ is the aspect of connecting to YHVH, which is the pure system of the Tree of Life.
10: “There shall not be found among you anyone who makes his son or his daughter pass through the fire, anyone who practices divination or tells fortunes or interprets omens, or a sorcerer”
These are different kind of idol worshiping and dark magic.
11: “or one who casts a spell, or a medium, or a spiritist, or one who calls up the dead.”
All types of matter has temporary state, which is the aspect of death. Casting spells is a process that manifests spiritual force. The vapor that comes out of the mouth includes the four elements of the material world.
Air (that comes out of the lungs),
Fire (heat of the vapor),
Water (the moist that is part of the vapor),
Earth (is the minerals that in the water).
The Zohar distinguishes between voice and speaking. Voice is the formation of the energy in the chest before it comes out as spoken words. Speaking is when the mouth produces the voice that comes out to the world.
12: “for whoever does these things is an abomination to YHVH. And because of these abominations YHVH your God is driving them out before you.”
The negative energy that could come from materials and the attached spells spreads in the world through the spoken words. Spells usually have no borders and can affect people anywhere in the world. It’s like telepathy. It creates negative energy and ‘black holes’ that swallow light. If we are connected to the Light of YHVH then we should not deal with any kind of magic.
Any use of materials to tell the future or cast spells is impure and causes negativity to all sides.
Astrology is the only pure method to use in order to learn about our Tikkun process and learn how to overcome the obstacles. We should not use astrology as fortune telling system but as a divine system that could guide us through life and teach us how to go above astral influence.
There are some cases of pure magic in the Torah like Jacob’s system to control the breeding of the sheep so he could get his full payment from Laban. Moses’s actions in Egypt and the most powerful of them all is the Ketoret, which is the 11 incenses burnt by the priest in the Holy Temple to remove all negativity.
Some people email me their wish to know the actual formula of the 11 incenses. I don’t know it and even if I find a source with that knowledge I would never try to use it. When we try to handle a tool of such level it becomes impure and negative in our hands.
Rabbi Chaim Vital, the student of the Holy Ari, said that no one should deal with practical kabbalah because we don’t have the Holy Temple and the ashes of the Red Heifer to cleanse any negativity that could be a result of a flawed process.
“מְכַשֵּׁפָה, לֹא תְחַיֶּה.”
““You shall not permit a sorceress to live.”
“תָּמִים תִּהְיֶה, עִם יְהוָה אֱלֹהֶיךָ.”
“You must have integrity (purity in dealing) with YHVH your God.”
The only option we have is to connect to the Light in the purest possible way. We have the words of the Zohar that you can read. If you can’t read it then scan it. You have the recorded reading of the Zohar that you can listen to. These are pure methods of magic that draws light into our lives. It will manifest where we need it to be and not where we think is good for us.
With the pure magic of the Zohar we can spread pure Light force energy in the world and swallow the dark ones.
