Daily Zohar # 3421 – Ha’azinu – The power of pure prayers
The Light that is in the cavities of the head is Chokmah, Binah, and Da’at of Israel Sava and Tevuna that hold in the skull that is the Chokmah, Binah, and Da’at of Father and Mother that is the supernal brain.
The hair that comes out of the three parts of the brain connect to the supernal brain and intermix with it with aspects of purity and impurity. These brains implied in the first commandment of “I am YHVH your God…”, which is the secret of the 248 positive actions precepts and the 365 precepts of avoiding negativity. They are arranged as lights shine in the crown of the head. Their lights enter the four brains of the skull that are Father, Mother, and the two parts of Da’at and fill the three cavities of the head.
“הַטֵּה יְהוָה אָזְנְךָ וּשְׁמָע פְּקַח יְהוָה עֵינֶךָ וּרְאֵה וּשְׁמַע אֵת כָּל דִּבְרֵי סַנְחֵרִיב אֲשֶׁר שָׁלַח לְחָרֵף אֱלֹהִים חָי.”
“Incline Your ear, O YHVH, and hear; open Your eyes, O YHVH, and see; and hear all the words of Sennacherib, which he has sent to reproach the living God.”
The Zohar tells us that if we want Hashem to listen to our prayers, we need to make the correction of the hair by moving away from the hair from over the ears to be able to hear the prayers.
The explanation is that the roots of judgments can be found in the hair and when we remove them, we reveal the upper three sefirot of Zeir Anpin and the prayers have a higher connection and can be heard by the King.
The study of this paragraph will be In the next DZ.
When we remove judgments from our life, we clear a path for our prayers to be heard above. We work on our correction on a daily basis, and in addition, the best way to remove judgments is by not judging others. It’s always our personal choices that affect our lives.
The verse above is from King Hezkiyahu’s prayer. The huge army of Sennacheriv made a siege around Jerusalem and asked the king to surrender the kingdom. King Hezkiyahu didn’t listen to his advisors that feared the mighty army outside the walls. He was a righteous king and went to the Temple and prayed to Hashem asking him for protection from the evil that came to desecrate the name of God.
We read the outcome in the following verse;
2 Kings 19:35
“Then it happened that night that the angel of the YHVH went out and struck 185,000 in the camp of the Assyrians; and when men rose early in the morning, behold, all of them were dead.”
The end of the story is that Sennacheriv was killed by his sons and run away (2 Kings 19:37). Rabbi Obadia of Bartenura in the Mishna, Ethics of the Fathers 1:10 reveals “Shamaya and Avtalyon: were righteous converts and were from the descendants of Sancheriv.”
When our ways are righteous, our prayers are heard and Hashem ‘fights’ for us.
