Tikkun 22 – 54
“וְהָיָה, כַּאֲשֶׁר יָרִים מֹשֶׁה יָדוֹ–וְגָבַר יִשְׂרָאֵל; וְכַאֲשֶׁר יָנִיחַ יָדוֹ, וְגָבַר עֲמָלֵק ”
“And when Moses held up his hand, Israel prevailed; and when he let down his hand, Amalek prevailed.”
Moses’ spiritual state puts him at the level of Da’at (Knowledge). His hands connected Chokmah י, and Binah ה, and activated Da’at, the Sefira that is formed only when the Chokmah and Binah join together. Then the light could flow down to Malchut through the Vav ו, Zeir Anpin, in its spelled form ואו. This light helped the Israelites prevail over Amalek.
On the simple level we understand that we need to connect to the upper levels to draw light to overcome negativity in our levels but the deeper meaning is revealed by the Zohar.
The letters ואו with numerical value 13, represents the thirteen attributes of God. These attributes will be revealed at the Redemption time to take the Israelites out of exile. Moses, as Da’at, has the key to the main gate between the upper three Sefirot and the Lower seven. Mashiach will come through that gate down to us, ‘dressed’ with the thirteen attributes of YHVH and be revealed in Malchut.
The Torah is ואו and the aspect of Zeir Anpin. Moses delivered us out of Egypt, connected us to the Torah. He revealed the light of Zeir Anpin and brought us to the Land of Israel, which is the aspect of Malchut.
In the future Moses will open the upper gate to usher down Mashiach. With the power of the 13 attributes of YHVH, Amalek and all negativity will be removed from Malchut. This time Moses will be allowed to enter the Holy land, because when there is no negativity, the whole earth becomes holy.
the Zohar, In the beginning of Yitro (English Zohar Volume 10), says that we should not raise our hands above our heads without proper prayer, which is asking for light to share and not for personal gain. When we raise our hands we immediately bring down angels to create a spiritual connection. If the prayer is not proper then it turns to negativity and could bring judgment on us.
Let us raise our hands in prayer to be channels of light to the world and to have the merit to see the revelation of Mashiach in Malchut, Today, Amen.
