Tikkun 47 – 6
Quote from Zohar Lech Lecha 89b, English Zohar Vol 3 #278,279 / Hasulam, Lech Lecha #278, 279,
From that day onward, the Holy One, blessed be He, has been creating worlds. And what are these worlds? They are the matings of human beings. Because ever since that day, the Holy One blessed be He, has been making marriages, by saying: “The daughter of so to so for so and so.” These are the worlds He creates, BECAUSE EVERY UNION OF A COUPLE IS CONSIDERED TO BE A WORLD.
Blessing is light that comes from Binah through the six Sefirot of Zeir Anpin to Malchut.
When the bride and groom come together to be wed, they go through a process that is called ‘Kidushin’. It brings the marriage to a sacred level.
The groom as Zeir Anpin, stands under a ‘Chuppah’, which is a prayer shawl held with its four corners for the aspect of the YHVH name.
The Shawl ‘hovers’ over the bride and groom like Binah over Zeir Anpin. When the bride comes to join the groom under the Chupah, she circles him seven times to bind Zeir Anpin and Malchut as one.
The next step is the seven blessings that draw the light from Binah to Malchut and fuse the couple together in the Holy Matrimony.
The ring as the Holy Ari said should be a square ring on the outside and circle in the inside. This connects us from the dimensional world of Malchut and the System of YHVH to the Endless.
Many people miss on their soul mates because of the corrupted image of what a soul mate and its purpose is.
In earlier times and in some cultures, until now, the parents arranged the marriage of their children.
Nowadays, the Tikkun process leads us to different relationships before marriage. The Zohar teaches us that even before the child is born, God appoints the female for him. They are born separately in different times and to different parents. In most cases the male goes down to the world before the female. He needs to have a ‘head start’ on the work that lies ahead of him.
If he doesn’t have the merit, meaning he is not in the right path of correction, then his soul mate is given to another until he is ready or not at all.
The blessing comes to them when they are together. Genesis 1:27 “male and female created He them. ” and the following words in 1:28 it said “And God blessed them”
When the souls comes into the holiness of marriage they need to be as one flesh to rejoin the souls. Genesis 2:24 “and they shall be one flesh…”. For the blessing of the Holy Matrimony to continue in their lives they need to join the bodies that carry the souls. That is why the Zohar above states “EVERY UNION OF A COUPLE IS CONSIDERED TO BE A WORLD”
A woman should pray for her soul mate to be on the spiritual and correction path. It is only then that they can meet and get married to continue life and fulfill their Tikkun.
The Holy Ari tells us that woman’s incarnation and process in life in this world is directly related and involves her soul mate. A couple that get married may not be soul mates but the Tikkun process brought them together. If they cleave to each other, God will transfer part of the soul of the soul mate to the husband. Because this requires changing the natural order of the souls, the sages said, “Matching the souls is as difficult for God as was the parting of the Red Sea”.
The last step of the marriage ceremony is the unification that must come not longer after the seven blessings.
When the souls come into the holiness of marriage they need to be as one flesh to merge to rejoin the souls. Genesis 2:24 “and they shall be one flesh” for the blessing to continue because when they are one soul and body, there is a flow and continuation of the energy of the blessing that was bestowed on them when they were created as one. That is why the Zohar above states “EVERY UNION OF A COUPLE IS CONSIDERED TO BE A WORLD”
During the unification the groom should meditate to transfer the soul level of Ruach from him to his bride. That is what makes them soul mates.
A musician Billy Preston used to say “If you can’t be with the one you love, love the one you’re with”. Following this line, Stephen Stills wrote a beautiful song named “Love the one you’re with”, which you can find on YouTube.
With the power of love, you can bring your soul mate’s soul into the one you are with and complete the Tikkun process.
