Tikkun 22 – 33
(This is a continuation of the subject of ‘impressions’ that began with Daily Zohar #482 https://dailyzohar.com/?p=3015 )
Song of Songs 8:6
“שִׂימֵנִי כַחוֹתָם עַל-לִבֶּךָ, כַּחוֹתָם עַל-זְרוֹעֶךָ”
“Set me as a seal upon your heart, as a seal upon your arm;”
The ‘seal’ of Shabbat and holidays is similar to the connection of the circumcision and the name שדי. This name protects the gates that pass the light from the upper levels to Malchut.
Shabbat is a day when the light passes from Binah to Malchut for the whole week.
The word Shabbat שבת, reveals the spiritual connection of that special day.
Theש of שבת and שדי are the aspect of the three Holy Creatures of the Holy Throne and the three channels of the patriarchs, Chessed, Gevurah and Tiferet.
The letters ב and ת are for Malchut. They are spelled as בת, meaning daughter, for the daughter of the Light.
The ד of the name שדי is for the fourth Creature of the Holy throne, which is man, אדם.
י with numerical value 10 is the aspect of the 10 Sefirot that brings the light on Shabbat.
