The sages say that God’s dealing with the sustenance of a person is hard as the splitting of the Red Sea. The sustenance to the world of Malchut comes from Zeir Anpin, the Central Column.
The Zohar teaches that children, life and sustenance depend on the luck of a person. That luck comes from the higher levels of Zeir Anpin.
Rabbi Ashlag explains that male, Zeir Anpin and female, Malchut were as one before God separated the female from the male (Adam and Eve). The female that was connected to the Light of the male, is now disconnected, without light of her own, dependant on the male for it.
In order to receive the Light of sustenance and other blessings from above, Malchut needs to lower itself to allow the light to flow down from Yessod of Zeir Anpin that is called ‘Luck’ to the world.
We live in a world without light. To get ‘lucky’ and receive the blessing of sustenance, children and life from above, we need to lower yourself like empty vessels. We do that with humility, expressing our emptiness and desire for the light from a lower point. Giving tithe/Tzedakah is an important action because giving the tenth/tithe (Malchut) open our vessel to receive and get lucky.
I want to emphasis here that giving tithe doesn’t guarantee immediate results because some still owe a lot from current and previous lives. Nevertheless, we should start doing it on a regular basis to gradually open greater channels of light of sustenance into our lives. I suggest giving every week a relative amount to ‘empty’/lower the vessel before Shabbat when we have opportunities to connect to the Torah/Zohar with the congregation or individually at home to receive the Light that we need. God promise (Malachi 3:10) that he will pour blessings on those who give tithe to the Holy. Give to pure channels of Light to benefit greatly.
Today is the eighth day of Hanukkah and the full revelation of the Light of Binah. If you didn’t give Tzedakah during Hanukkah then do it today to connect to the light of Binah and the miracles of Hanukkah.
The Zohar continues to say that bringing souls together is as hard as bringing sustenance to the people. The female needs to receive blessings from above in order to draw the soul that completes her.
Best way to receive blessings for those who wish to get married is to light Shabbat candles every Friday night. Giving Tzedakah on Friday before Shabbat would open the vessel for greater blessings.
A married man should make efforts to prepare the candles for his wife, expressing unity in the process that draw blessings to the family.
