Daily Zohar 4371
203. לִפְעָמִים בַּעְלָהּ הוּא ו’ בְּצַדִּיק בְּשִׁשָּׁה פְרָקִים שֶׁל שְׁתֵּי שׁוֹקַיִם יוֹרֵד אֵלֶיהָ בִּשְׁתֵּי שׁוֹקַיִם. לִפְעָמִים בַּעְלָהּ הוּא ו’ בִּשְׁתֵּי [נ”א זְרוֹעוֹת], שִׁשָּׁה פְרָקִים שֶׁעוֹלָה אֵלָיו בִּשְׁתֵּי זְרוֹעוֹת. לִפְעָמִים הוּא בֶּן אַבָּא וְאִמָּא, בֶּן י”ה, צָרִיךְ לְהַעֲלוֹת [לָהּ לְמַעְלָה וְכַאֲשֶׁר] לְמַעְלָה לְה’. וּכְשֶׁעוֹלֶה שָׁם, לִפְעָמִים הִיא בְּהִפּוּךְ ו’ וּבֵין י’ י’ כְּמוֹ זֶה א צָרִיךְ לְהַעֲלוֹתָהּ אֵלָיו, שֶׁנֶּאֱמַר בָּהּ (תהלים קיח) אֶבֶן מָאֲסוּ הַבּוֹנִים הָיְתָה לְרֹאשׁ פִּנָּה.

There should be no interruption when elevating the Nukva to Zeir Anpin, even if a snake is wrapped around the person’s heel. It is written
“וְאֵיבָה אָשִׁית בֵּינְךָ וּבֵין הָאִשָּׁה וּבֵין זַרְעֲךָ וּבֵין זַרְעָהּ הוּא יְשׁוּפְךָ רֹאשׁ וְאַתָּה תְּשׁוּפֶנּוּ עָקֵב.”
“And I will put enmity Between you and the woman, And between your seed and her Seed; He (the snake) shall bruise your head, And you shall bruise His heel.”
The word ‘heel’ is ‘עקב’ and Jacob, ‘יעקב’ has the three letters with the י Y, that is that aspect of the stone that should be elevated to the Endless.
It is said that everyone who kneels is kneeling in Baruch (כָל הַכּוֹרֵעַ כּוֹרֵעַ בְּבָרוּךְ Tikunei Zohar 120 b), which is the beginning of the blessing, and bring the ‘stone’ all the way down without a break on the way up or down.
If we elevate the י Y to the highest level and have a break before it comes down to Malchut, the Snake can hurt us and take away the Light.
When we pray, we should not speak a word other than the prayer from the elevation to the world of B’riah that leads to the Shema Yisrael prayer, the Amida that is the highest part of the prayer. Then we bring down the Light we received above and avoid talks until we finish the prayer.
This is correct also when we pray or meditate at home. Any interruption breaks the vessel we wanted to build for the Light we wish to receive.
The Snake can hurt us only if we let him in.
Sometimes, her husband, Zeir Anpin, is ו V (numerically 6), the letter representing the Tzadik that descends to her with two legs and six joints. Sometimes, her husband is ו V with two arms and six joints that she ascends to him. Sometimes, he is between father and mother, Y and upper H. The lower H that represents the Nukva should be brought up. And when it comes up there, sometimes it is in reverse ו V and between י Y and י Y, like the letter Alef א that has Y above Vav in the middle and Y below. The Nukva should be elevated to the level of the א Alef. It is said in Psalm 118:22
“אֶבֶן מָאֲסוּ הַבּוֹנִים הָיְתָה לְרֹאשׁ פִּנָּה.”
“The stone which the builders rejected Has become the chief cornerstone.”
The Nukva, the lower H of the name, should be elevated with our prayers, using the arms, which are Chessed and Gevurah, that is the ‘hug’ with Tiferet. Netzach and Hod are the two legs. Yessod is the Tzadik that makes the unification and transfers Light to the Nukva to elevate her to the upper H, the Light of Binah that promotes the Nukva to Keter, which is the letter א Alef.
