Daily Zohar 3905
162. זֹאת מִשְׁחַת אַהֲרֹן וּמִשְׁחַת בָּנָיו. רַבִּי יוֹסֵי אָמַר, זֹאת וַדַּאי מְשִׁיחַת אַהֲרֹן, שֶׁהֲרֵי אַהֲרֹן נִמְשַׁח, וּבָא מִשֶּׁמֶן מִשְׁחָה עָלָיו מִלְמַעְלָה, וּמַשְׁפִּיעַ אוֹתוֹ לְמַטָּה. וְעַל יְדֵי שֶׁאַהֲרֹן נִמְשַׁח מִמְּשִׁיחָה קְדוֹשָׁה לְהִתְבָּרֵךְ, וְעַל זֶה זֹאת מִשְׁחַת אַהֲרֹן וּמִשְׁחַת בָּנָיו וַדַּאי.

He who doesn’t have a connection to the ו V which is an aspect of the son loses the connection to the י Y of the YHVH name. If he doesn’t have a daughter, that is the aspect of the last ה H of the name, he loses the connection to the upper ה H of the name.
The letter V ו needs the letter Y י and the lower Hה needs the upper הH to make the connections of the upper and lower levels. When the name is complete the lower level is called “You are the children of YHVH your God” (Deuteronomy 14:1).
Rabbi Yossi says that the consecrated (anointed) portion for Aaron and his sons is Malchut (זֹאת) because Aaron was anointed from the Holy anointing oil from Chokmah. He drew the supernal anointing oil from Chokmah to Malchut, and because of that, it is written,
“זֹאת מִשְׁחַת אַהֲרֹן וּמִשְׁחַת בָּנָיו מֵאִשֵּׁי יְהוָה בְּיוֹם הִקְרִיב אֹתָם לְכַהֵן לַיהוָה.”
“This (זֹאת) is the consecrated (anointed) portion for Aaron and his sons, from the offerings made by fire to YHVH, on the day when Moses presented them to minister to YHVH as priests.”
The olive tree is a perennial, evergreen tree that can live and produce olives for more than a hundred, even several hundred years. Oil represents the Light of Chokmah that is continuous and never stops flowing to the world.
Seeing an olive tree in a dream represents fruitfulness, children, marriage, and success. If one eats olive in a dream, it means that he consumes/loses his wisdom or spiritual elevation.
Picking olives from the ground in a dream means to expect hard labor to achieve success.
Some types of pickled olives lack their natural oil and according to the Talmud, it could cause memory loss. We restore their essence by sprinkling olive oil on them.
