Tikkun 69 – 49
Song of Songs 5:2
“פִּתְחִי-לִי אֲחֹתִי רַעְיָתִי יוֹנָתִי תַמָּתִי”
“’Open to me, my sister, my love, my dove, my undefiled”
The initials of “my sister, my love, my dove, my undefiled” in Hebrew have the numerical value of 611, which is the same as Torah תורה.
“פִּתְחוּ-לִי שַׁעֲרֵי-צֶדֶק; אָבֹא-בָם, אוֹדֶה יָהּ.”
“Open to me the gates of righteousness; I will enter into them, I will give thanks unto YH”
“ זֶה-הַשַּׁעַר לַיהוָה ”
“This is the gate of YHVH”
24:7 “שְׂאוּ שְׁעָרִים, רָאשֵׁיכֶם, וְהִנָּשְׂאוּ, פִּתְחֵי עוֹלָם;
וְיָבוֹא, מֶלֶךְ הַכָּבוֹד ”
“Lift up your heads, O ye gates, yea, lift them up, ye everlasting doors; that the King of glory may come in”
The Zohar tells us that the gate to the Light is the first letter of the Torah, which is the ב of בראשית, “In The Beginning…”.
Rabbi Shimon wrote the Tikunei Zohar, 70 discussions on this first word of the Torah. For us they are 70 keys to open the upper gate.
The number 70 represents the 10 Sefirot of each of the seven lower sefirot (Chessed to Malchut)
The DailyZohar went through 68 Tikunei Zohar and now we are on the 69th. It is highly recommended for people that didn’t join us from the beginning to spend a daily time to study the Tikunei Zohar from the first one on.
Here is a link to the list of all Daily Zohars http://dailyzohar.com/?page_id=1562
In the introduction to the Tikunei Zohar, Elijah the prophet opened the gate for Rabbi Shimon and all of us. In it he describes the entire Tree of Life in a coded way. It is recommended to read/scan his words before initiating anything new.
This will open the upper gate for us and bring the light into our life and actions.
When to use Patach Eliyahu,”Elijah Opened”:
Every morning, especially on Shabbat. This is the beginning of the day, after washing and saying the morning blessings.
(Before anything else).
Immediately after Shabbat we start the new week so it will help us to have a week full of light.
