כְּכָל-הַיֹּצֵא מִפִּיו, יַעֲשֶׂה
” He shall do according to all that proceeded out of his mouth ”
The Zohar defines humans as ” מדבר “, one who speaks. This puts humans above all nature and closer to God.
The parasha starts with the laws of vows. If a man makes a vow or swears an oath, he shall not break his word and must act according to the words that came out of his mouth.
A man has the power to annul his daughter’s or wife’s vows but not his vows.
The reason for that is that a female is a vessel and a man is a channel for the Light. They are connected to his Light and if he hears his daughter or wife make a vow, it makes him part of the process. He can then deny channeling the Light from coming to the vessel.
When the words come out of the mouth, the Light is formed to supply the energy to it. It is automatic. The man must follow his words because the Light comes in unconditionally. If he doesn’t follow his words, then that energy is taken by the other side and used for negativity.
A young female that still lives with her father is connected to his Light. A husband and wife get connected through marriage and the process of the seven blessings, “Kidushin” that forms a unit of male and female. The male controls the Light flow into the unit and therefore he can annul her vows.
A woman is at the Malchut level and her words can manifest without much work. Her desire (vessel) makes things happen. (It is easy to understand now the saying “behind a successful man, there is a successful or powerful wife”).
In a true marriage, the husband feels the power of his wife’s desires strongly; she can make or break the relationship.
The power of the vessel is like a magnet. Like a metal drawn to a magnet, the light is drawn to a vessel. The bigger the vessel, the bigger the Light drawn into it.
When a woman’s vows are annulled, “וַיקוָק יִסְלַח-לָהּ” The Light forgives her. The English translation hides the real spiritual process. The numerical value for the root word “סְלַח ” is 98 and it is the same for the word ” צח “, which means clean and pure. Because the man annulled her vow, she is not responsible for its fulfillment and the Light cleanses her.
If a man annuls the vow of his daughter or wife he takes the responsibility. (Numbers 30:16) “וְאִם-הָפֵר יָפֵר אֹתָם, אַחֲרֵי שָׁמְעוֹ–וְנָשָׂא, אֶת-עֲוֹhנָהּ” But if he shall make them null and void after that he has heard them, then he shall bear her iniquity “.
In the YHVH name of God, female energy is represented by the letters ’ה’(H), the first “ה”(H) (Upper) is for the level of Binah, which is pure light with desire to share. The last letter H is for Malchut, representing the lack of light and desire to receive.
The male energy is the first letter “י”(Y) for the levels of Keter and Chokmah and it is unreachable by us because no desire can be found there for us to connect.
The letter “ו”(V) represents Zeir Anpin and man to channel the light from Binah to Malchut.
Here is how the Light flows to this world according to the name of God (in a very simple way).
י Yod = Keter and Chokamh (Pure Light)
ה He = Binah (Female, pure desire to share, giving life)
ו Vav = Zeir Anpin (Male, channels the light)
ה He = Malchut (Female, Desire = Vessel=Manifestation, The Light in Malchut take the shape of the vessel)
We are all responsible for everything that comes out of our mouths. When we speak we have the power to create. It is done by connecting the Light and the desire (the vessel).
Watch your words!
