Daily Zohar 4475
153. וְכָךְ הוֹלֵךְ וּמְשׁוֹטֵט בָּעוֹלָם, וּפוֹקֶדֶת תָּמִיד אֶת אוֹתוֹ הַקֶּבֶר עַד הַזְּמַן שֶׁהָרוּחוֹת פּוֹקְדוֹת לְקִבְרוֹת הַגּוּפִים. אָז הָרוּחַ הַזּוֹ מִתְחַבֶּרֶת בְּאוֹתָהּ רוּחַ שֶׁלּוֹ, וּמִתְלַבֶּשֶׁת בָּהּ, וְהוֹלֵךְ לוֹ. כְּשֶׁנִּכְנָס לִמְקוֹמוֹ, מִתְפַּשֵּׁט מִמֶּנּוּ, וְיֵשׁ לוֹ מָקוֹם (בְּאוֹתָן רוּחוֹת בְּגַן עֵדֶן) בְּאוֹתָם הֵיכָלוֹת שֶׁל גַּן עֵדֶן אוֹ בַּחוּץ לְפִי דַרְכֵי כָּל אֶחָד וְאֶחָד, וְשָׁם נִשְׁמָר.
We have learned that a person is repelled for another, through various hidden ways they are pushed away. Where did the first soul that was repelled because of the second one go? He answers that the repelled soul exits and wanders in the world, unknown, and goes to the grave of that person, and from there wanders the world. He appears in dreams to people, and they see in their dream a shape of that person, and it informs them of things according to the way of that first soul that is drawn from it, just as it is in that next world, so it wanders and informs in this world.
And so it goes and wanders the world, always visiting that grave, until the time when souls visit their bodies in the graves; then, the very soul (Ruach) of the first husband comes to the grave to visit his body. Then this soul, which is only a part of the Ruach of the main soul, joins with its main soul, clothes itself in it, and departs. When the soul enters its place above, it undresses from it. He has a place in the chambers in the Garden of Eden or outside, according to the ways of every soul, and there it hides.
