Tikkun 25 – 4
Song of Songs 5:2
“… פִּתְחִי-לִי אֲחֹתִי רַעְיָתִי יוֹנָתִי תַמָּתִי–שֶׁרֹּאשִׁי נִמְלָא-טָל, קְוֻצּוֹתַי רְסִיסֵי לָיְלָה. ”
“…’Open to me, my sister, my love, my dove, my undefiled; for my head is filled with dew, my locks with the drops of the night ”
Tikkun 18 discusses the six letters of בָּרָ”א שִׁי”ת, meaning “created six”. Here the Zohar connects בָּרָ”א שִׁי”ת to the above verse.
ב is the gate to be opened.
“My Sister” is the א, the ר is for “my love (wife)”, “my undefiled” is for the ת
י, Yod, is for שֶׁרֹּאשִׁי נִמְלָא-טָל, “for my head is filled with dew” is for the dot inside the letter Bet, ב.
קְוֻצּוֹתַי, “my locks” are the six sides of Zeir Anpin. They are the ‘knocks’, דופק, on the door of the heart that make it beat and transfer the energy from four inner sides (as in the four chambers) of the heart.
While studying this Zohar section, I checked information related to the heart beat and ECG (Electro Cardio Graph) that the Cardiologists use to tell the condition of the heart. I found out that the ECG registers the wave of the heart pulse and it has 6 elements. They are defined as PQRST, and the sixth element is the speed of the heart beat.
The Zohar teaches us that the heart pulse, דופק, goes up with the energy of Chessed, Gevurah and Tiferet, which are equivalent to P->Q to R, which is the top of the wave in the ECG chart and goes down R->S->T for Netzach, Hod and Yessod. The speed of the pulse is the aspect of the central column, which is the life energy of the heart.
Studying the ECG with this Zohar can tell a lot about the relationship between the Tikkun process of the person and his heart condition.
The Zohar also tells us that the heart pulse climbing up is the aspect of Shofar blowing of Tekiah, the drop is Shevarim and the speed is Teruah.
Keeping the heart in balance keeps us better connected to the central column and helps us in revealing the light of Zeir Anpin.
