Daily Zohar 3269
Another shape on the face is of a person that repented and doesn’t go back to his flawed ways. The shape that is seen on his face by those who can read it, is of an Eagle. His spirit is low and the letters on his face sank in earlier in his life when he corrected himself.
Because his ego and spirit are under his control, the letters are not embossed on his face and don’t show his energy as bright eyes even when he feels happiness or when he cuts the hair of his head and beard.
The secret is in the verse (Ecclesiastes 4:2)
“וְשַׁבֵּחַ אֲנִי אֶת הַמֵּתִים שֶׁכְּבָר מֵתוּ מִן הַחַיִּים אֲשֶׁר הֵמָּה חַיִּים עֲדֶנָה.”
“Therefore, I praised the dead who were already dead, More than the living who are still alive.”
As for the seed of David (Psalms 25:14) “סוֹד יְהוָה לִירֵאָיו וּבְרִיתוֹ לְהוֹדִיעָם.” “The secret of YHVH is with those who fear Him, And He will show them His covenant.”
The soul of a person carries letters that revealed on his face as embossed.
“זֶה סֵפֶר תּוֹלְדֹת אָדָם בְּיוֹם בְּרֹא אֱלֹהִים אָדָם בִּדְמוּת אֱלֹהִים עָשָׂה אֹתוֹ”
“This is the book of the generations of Adam. In the day when God created man, He made him in the likeness of God.”
The secret of understanding the soul is in “זֶה סֵפֶר” “This is the book” that can be studied from the Torah through the Zohar. Face reading is a gift given to those who with the wise heart that elevated themselves spiritually.
Paragraph 113 is difficult to understand, but Zohar Chukat 53-55 (https://unityzohar.com/zohar-books/chukat/52) helps us understand the quote from Ecclesiastes. The ‘dead’ are those who went through reincarnations and already corrected themselves. The living who are still alive are those who still have work to correct themselves.
Please do not try to read people’s faces, especially not family members or small kids. When we try to ‘match’ a shape on another person’s face, on the spiritual level we ‘dress’ that face with the shape we have in our minds. This could draw judgments on the ‘reader’ and on the ‘object’. For the same reason, the second commandment forbids us from imagining the name of YHVH in a certain ‘shape’. It creates limits that restrict the Light of YHVH from being revealed in our lives.
In the DZ studies, I avoid adding pictures to illustrate spiritual principals because the mind of the reader may get ‘locked’ into specific limiting shapes.
As Zohar students, we increasingly elevate ourselves spiritually and gain a better understanding of the people around us. We can sense positive and negative people. It is great to have this ability on the path of purifying and growing of our vessels. The studies of face reading and other practical ‘techniques’ from the Zohar would enhance our natural ability to ‘read’ people without looking for letters or shape patterns. Trying to do so, would invite the other-side to offer misleading shapes and create openings to inflict judgments. That is why the Zohar ends the segment of Face reading with
(Psalms 25:14) “סוֹד יְהוָה לִירֵאָיו וּבְרִיתוֹ לְהוֹדִיעָם.” “The secret of YHVH is with those who fear Him, And He will show them His covenant.”
We need to study with love and awe to Hashem and the secrets would be revealed to us.
When we eat properly and take our vitamins and food supplements, we get healthier and stronger without knowing the exact details of what we consume. All we need to know is to get our ‘intakes’ from a good source.
