126. אַחַר כָּךְ מִסְתַּלֶּקֶת הִיא לְתוֹךְ דְּרָגוֹת עֶלְיוֹנוֹת. גַּם כָּךְ הַבֶּן אָדָם עוֹלֶה הוּא אַחַר כָּךְ בַּתְּפִלִּין לְתוֹךְ דְּרָגוֹת עֶלְיוֹנוֹת. וְעַל זֶה תָּמִים תִּהְיֶה עִם ה’ אֱלֹהֶיךָ, עִמּוֹ וַדַּאי. וַדַּאי בְּשָׁעָה אַחַת, בְּרֶגַע אֶחָד, הִיא מְתֻקֶּנֶת לְמַעְלָה, וּבֶן אָדָם מְתֻקָּן לְמַטָּה.
Zohar Shelach Lecha
A person who wears a properly made Tzitzit becomes a complete person, ‘תמים’. The first two letters ‘תם’ connect to the four corners of the Tzitzit. The other two letters ‘ים’, literally meaning ‘sea’, is received in the blue/azure of the Tzitzit. It is the secret of the fish with 70 levels of the sea. The other side cannot harm a person that wears a Tzitzit with evil eyes.
“תָּמִים תִּהְיֶה עִם יְהוָה אֱלֹהֶיךָ.”
“You shall be blameless before YHVH, your God.”
Then the man and Malchut are together in one correction, above and below.
After the Tzitzit, the man wears the Tefillin that elevates him to the supernal levels. It says, “You shall be blameless before YHVH your God” because the elevation to YHVH brings a correction above and a correction to the man below.
The Tzitzit is an important tool of protection. Men wear a Tzitzit that is also called ‘Small Tallit,’ and the ‘Big Tallit’ is the large prayer shawl that needs to cover the back when praying. The Tefillin is another important tool that elevates us quickly to the world of Beriah (Creation). There are three types of Tefillin; Rashi, Tam, and Shimusha Rabba.
The Torah instructs us to use a blue thread on the Tzitzits, but because there are no references to the exact shade of blue that should be used, the rabbis cannot make a ruling. Therefore the threads in the four corners of the Tzitzit are all white. Some schools of teaching use a blue thread.
Blue is the color of Malchut. It has a vibration that disrupts the evil eye and other klipot. The blue color is used for painting Tzadikim graves for protection.
Seeing a garment of sky blue color in a dream means that there is a decree on the person that wears it. He should tell such dreams to a scholar that interprets dreams and follow with a dream correction.
