Daily Zohar 3911
117. כַּאֲשֶׁר נִכְנְסָה הַשַּׁבָּת וְאָדָם הָיָה חוֹטֵא, נַעֲשׂוּ (נִשְׁפְּעוּ) מֵאוֹתָהּ רוּחַ הַשְּׂמֹאל בְּרִיּוֹת שֶׁמִּתְפַּשְּׁטוֹת בָּעוֹלָם, וְגוּפָם לֹא הִסְתַּיֵּם, וְהִתְחַבְּרוּ עִם גּוּף הָאָדָם הַזֶּה, עִם זָכָר וּנְקֵבָה, וְנוֹלְדוּ בָעוֹלָם. וְאֵלּוּ נִקְרָאִים נִגְעֵי בְּנֵי אָדָם. לָמַדְנוּ, הָעֶלְיוֹנִים מֵהֶם שֶׁלֹּא נִדְבְּקוּ לְמַטָּה וּתְלוּיִים בָּאֲוִיר, וְשׁוֹמְעִים מַה שֶּׁשּׁוֹמְעִים מִלְמַעְלָה, וּמֵהֶם יוֹדְעִים אוֹתָם הָאֲחֵרִים לְמַטָּה.

Everything that is under the control of a man (Adam) אדם, is called a man איש (pronounced ‘ish’). Because he is from the level of the six sefirot of Zeir Anpin before man אדם reached the level of the upper three sefirot.
We have learned a supreme secret in the book Sifra Detzniuta (#51, after Zohar Teruma) when אדם Adam was created, he descended in a supreme form, and with him descended two levels of soul on his right and left sides. The one on the right was called “נְשָׁמָה קְדוֹשָׁה” “Holy soul”, as it is written “and he breathed into his nostrils the breath of life” (Genesis 2:7). The ‘Holiness’ came from YHVH that “breathed into his nostrils”. The soul on the left was called “נֶפֶשׁ חַיָּה” “a living soul”.
He would go down gradually to the Garden of Eden. The soul on the right did not settle with the one on the left because he sinned in the Tree of Knowledge Good and Bad and separated the right from the left.
Adam sinned just before Shabbat, and from the soul on the left formed and spread in the world beings without a complete body that is demons. They attached themselves to the body of Adam and Eve and gave birth to beings that are called plagues of men. We learned that there are supernal spirits that come from the soul of the left of the first Adam אדם that do not connect to this world but stay in the in-between worlds. They listen to what is said above, and from them, the spirits in this world learn about what is going on in this world and they tell the people in their dreams.
