The Zohar continues with revealing the different levels of connecting and unifying the Holy One Blessed be He and the Shechina, the Light and the vessel. In this section the Zohar talks about the different levels of Torah studies.
World of Action, Asiah – the basic story that we read from the Torah.
World of Formation, Yetzirah – The understanding of the text from the symbols.
World of Creation, Briah – The understanding from the study and discussions of the text
World of Emanation, Atzilut – The secrets of the Torah concealed in the text. We can connect to this level by studying the Zohar and follow the verse the Zohar quotes from the Torah and Bible. Studying the moral aspect of the Torah is on the first lower levels and if we learn the precepts its goes to the second level.
The Zohar reveals that above the world of Atzilut there’s a level of the secrets of secrets that connects directly to YHVH. This level can be achieved by great Tzadikim that can manifest their thoughts and words in this world.
The light revealed through the process of offerings is distributed among all spiritual levels according the purity of the giver. The pure connections reveal light that goes to different levels of angels and the lower levels go to sustain demons.
Our prayers have the aspects of offerings. The Zohar tells us that the prayers of the pure people, Tzadikim, are welcomed by the Holy One Blessed Be He because the Shechina is elevated with these prayers.
In simple words;
Our words of prayer produce positive or negative angels that carry the prayer as high as they can get. The spiritual system is in a resting state until we activate it with our actions, precepts, meditations and prayers. The pure prayers that ascend higher activate angels from upper worlds that continue Light to us in the level of Malchut. This process gives these angels ‘life’ like when we turn on the switch of an electronic device and give sit ‘life’. They have pleasure in channeling the light for us and it’s like ‘food’ for their work. Impure prayers of negative and selfish aspects produce negative energy that is used by low levels and demons.
When we go to sleep and our body is weak and unrested, the soul cannot ascend to a higher level of rest and experience ‘bad’ dreams, mostly related to physical sensations of impure pleasures and fears.
Those who go to sleep with proper preparation as we studied before, can ascend to higher level where they get good rest for their soul and body. Their dream also may carry true messages.
