Daily Zohar # 3567 – Mishpatim – Soul transfer from the dead
110. וְאִם תֹּאמַר, רוּחַ זוֹ הִיא מַה שֶּׁהָיָה – כָּךְ זֶה, אֲבָל לֹא נִבְנֵית אֶלָּא בִּשְׁבִיל אוֹתָהּ רוּחַ אַחֶרֶת שֶׁהִשְׁאִיר בְּאוֹתוֹ כְּלִי. כָּאן יֵשׁ סוֹדוֹת (סוֹד הַסּוֹדוֹת בְּאוֹתוֹ כְּלִי). בְּסִפְרוֹ שֶׁל חֲנוֹךְ, בִּנְיָן זֶה שֶׁנִּבְנֶה, לֹא נִבְנֶה אֶלָּא בְּאוֹתָהּ רוּחַ אַחֶרֶת שֶׁהִשְׁאִיר שָׁם, בְּאוֹתוֹ הַכְּלִי. וּכְשֶׁהִתְחִיל לְהִבָּנוֹת, זֶה מוֹשֵׁךְ אַחֲרָיו שֶׁל אוֹתָהּ רוּחַ שֶׁהוֹלֶכֶת עַרְטִילָאִית וּמוֹשֵׁךְ אוֹתָהּ אֵלָיו, וְשָׁם שְׁתֵּי רוּחוֹת שֶׁהֵן אַחַת. אַחַר כָּךְ זוֹהִי רוּחַ, וְזוֹהִי נְשָׁמָה, וּשְׁתֵּיהֶן אַחַת.
Continued from the previous study
When the husband enters his wife’s vessel for the first time, he leaves the level of Ruach in her. This level is never lost and stays in his wife, even after his death. This Ruach to connect to its source and the Yessod channel that the Ruach came from. After the husband died without children, the blood relative that marries the widow restores the connection to the original Ruach of the husband and the wife delivers a new child in this world that was formed from the original Ruach and receives a new Ruach and a new body.
The new Ruach of the child is not the same one left by the first husband in his wife. The book of Enoch reveals the secret. The child that was born is built by the force of the first Ruach left in the woman that draws the Ruach of the first husband that passed away without having children. Then the two soul levels of Ruach join as one, and after that one becomes Ruach and the other becomes Neshama, together as one.
During their first unification, the husband transfers to his wife the soul level of Ruach. That Light stays in the wife forever. It’s like coating the vessel with that unique Light that bonds the couple together. If a child is not born with this Ruach, the vessel/wife needs to resolve the issue. The brother-in-law of the widow is called to save the correction of his brother. If there is no brother to do the Yibum, then another relative that is on the same bloodline is able to make this correction because they are on the same spiritual line.
If the ‘candidate’ for Yibum refuses to marry the widow, then she goes through a process that is called ‘חליצה’ ‘Chalitza’, which is a procedure in front of judges that releases the soul from the need of the widow to marry in the same family.
