Tikkun 70 – 13
The special opening by Rabbi Shimon in DZ #907 starts a long Zohar section that is most of Tikkun 70 and it deals with the secrets of palm and face reading. The Zohar teaches us that our body is an expression of the energies that we carry from the spiritual dimensions and previous lives.
The aspect of the Ten Sefirot and of the YHVH name impacts our physical appearance. Our look is a result of the spiritual forces that make us walking and talking human beings.
The physical body replaces its matter many times during one life time. The soul may not replace itself but can go through changes that affect the way the body appears to the eye.
The light in the vessel ‘shapes’ its appearance. ספר תולדות אדם, the ‘Book of Adam’ that we discussed previously, has the meaning of ‘the book of all that comes out of Adam’. Adam is reference to Adam Kadmon that manifests the Creator’s plan through the four worlds.
“וְאַתָּה תֶחֱזֶה מִכָּל-הָעָם אַנְשֵׁי-חַיִל יִרְאֵי אֱלֹהִים, אַנְשֵׁי אֱמֶת–שֹׂנְאֵי בָצַע; וְשַׂמְתָּ עֲלֵהֶם, שָׂרֵי אֲלָפִים שָׂרֵי מֵאוֹת, שָׂרֵי חֲמִשִּׁים, וְשָׂרֵי עֲשָׂרֹת”
“And you shall SEE from of all the people able men, such as fear God, men of truth, hating unjust gain; and place such over them, to be rulers of thousands, rulers of hundreds, rulers of fifties, and rulers of tens.”
This is the key verse in the Torah that the Zohar refers to tell us that Moses used the knowledge of face reading to choose the right people for the task of running the daily issues related to leading the people.
The verse divides the people into 4 major groups in the aspect of the יהוה YHVH
Y י for אַנְשֵׁי-חַיִל “able men“. These people connect to right column of Chessed, South.
H ה for יִרְאֵי אֱלֹהִים “people with fear of God”. Those from the left column of Gevurah, North.
V ו for אַנְשֵׁי אֱמֶת “men of truth”. Central column, Tiferet and the aspect of Truth, East.
H ה for שֹׂנְאֵי בָצַע “hating unjust gain” . The side of Malchut, West.
Parallel to it there are another four groups in the aspect of the name ADNY אדני.
A א – שָׂרֵי אֲלָפִים, ‘rulers of thousands’, The letter Alef also means ‘thousand’
D ד – שָׂרֵי מֵאוֹת ‘rulers of hundreds’, the letter Dalet, numerically 4 refers to 400 years of the exile in Egypt
N נ – שָׂרֵי חֲמִשִּׁים ,’ rulers of fifties’ , the letter Nun נ is numerically 50
Y י – וְשָׂרֵי עֲשָׂרֹת, ‘rulers of tens’, The letter Yod י is numerically 10.
This part will get clearer as we continue deeper into Tikun 70.
The teaching of the secrets of palm and face reading are very exciting and can benefit everyone. It helps us understand and respect people for who they are and not to expect more or less.
We will learn how to identify good and bad people (without judging them). We will be able to see the spiritual level of people and learn to avoid the ones who desire to steal your energy.
