Hebrew translation:

50. אָמַר רַבִּי יוֹסֵי, עֶצֶם הַקּוּלִית [יָרֵךְ] הַקָּשֶׁה הַזֶּה, כְּשֶׁהוֹלֵךְ בִּסְרִיחוּת לְכָאן וּלְכָאן, הוֹלֵךְ וּמְבַקֵּר אֶת מְקוֹמוֹ שְׁנֵים עָשָׂר חֳדָשִׁים. כָּךְ הַנְּשָׁמָה הַהִיא שֶׁרְאוּיָה לְקַבֵּל עֹנֶשׁ, הוֹלֶכֶת בַּחוּץ בָּעוֹלָם, וּפוֹקֶדֶת אֶת מְקוֹמָהּ שְׁנֵים עָשָׂר חֳדָשִׁים בְּבָתֵּי הַקְּבָרוֹת וּבָעוֹלָם.
51. אָמַר רַבִּי יְהוּדָה, בֹּא רְאֵה שֶׁכָּתוּב וַיָּקָם אַבְרָהָם מֵעַל פְּנֵי מֵתוֹ וגו’. אָמַר רַבִּי אַבָּא, וַהֲרֵי שָׁנִינוּ שֶׁכַּאֲשֶׁר הַנְּשָׁמָה הִיא בִּשְׁלֵמוּת עֶלְיוֹנָה, נוֹסֶפֶת לָהּ הֵ”א, וְנִקְרֵאת אַבְרָהָם בִּשְׁלֵמוּת עֶלְיוֹנָה, וְכָאן אַתָּה אוֹמֵר כַּאֲשֶׁר אֵינוֹ צַדִּיק כָּל כָּךְ, שֶׁכָּתוּב וַיָּקָם אַבְרָהָם. עָשִׂיתָ שֶׁמִּי שֶׁיּוֹשֵׁב בְּכִסֵּא יוֹרֵד לְתוֹךְ קָטָן תַּחְתּוֹן?
52. אֶלָּא כָּךְ גָּזַרְתִּי – וַיָּקָם אַבְרָהָם מֵעַל פְּנֵי מֵתוֹ. שֶׁאָמַר רַבִּי בּוֹ אָמַר רַבִּי זְרִיקָא, כְּשֶׁהַנְּשָׁמָה רְאוּיָה לַעֲלוֹת לִמְקוֹם עִדְנָהּ, קֹדֶם מְגִנָּה עַל הַגּוּף הַקָּדוֹשׁ שֶׁיּוֹצֵאת מִשָּׁם, וְאַחַר כָּךְ עוֹלָהּ לִמְקוֹם מַעֲלָתָהּ. זֶהוּ שֶׁכָּתוּב וַיָּקָם אַבְרָהָם מֵעַל פְּנֵי מֵתוֹ, זֶה הַגּוּף.

Chaye Sarah

#50
Rabbi Yosei says that the soul that displaced itself from righteous path wanders around the world and visits her graves places for twelve months.
The Zohar uses plural form that implies connection to places the soul lived and buried in previous lives.
#51
Genesis 23:3
“וַיָּקָם, אַבְרָהָם, מֵעַל, פְּנֵי מֵתוֹ; וַיְדַבֵּר אֶל-בְּנֵי-חֵת, לֵאמֹר.”
“Then Abraham rose from before his dead, and spoke to the sons of Heth, saying,”

Rabbi Yehuda explains that when the soul achieved elevation to Binah, it becomes part of the upper levels. Abraham was elevated and received the ה H of Binah, added to his name. The verse says that ‘Abraham rose’ and it implies that he was in a lower level. We may understand that Abraham wasn’t so righteous but as we explained in #47 above, Abraham is the soul and Sarah is the body. ‘Then Abraham rose from before his dead’ is the aspect of the righteous soul that goes up from the lower body.

#52
Another explanation is that when a righteous soul merit to go up to its rightful place in heaven, it does it after protecting the righteous body that hosted the righteous soul. The soul then draws light to the body and give it ability to connect to other bodies of righteous. That explains that Abraham (the soul) went down to the body for its protection.

After death the body immediately attracts entities of the other side that tries to ‘suck’ any drop of energy that the body contains. The righteous soul can protect the body until its burial. We know that righteous bodies can stay without the decay process because the soul purified the body, leaving no opening for negativity to come.
