Tikkun 70 – 58
(continue from DZ 951 and 952)
The positive aspect of eyes from the right column is humility and negative side is rudeness and vulgarity.
The positive side of eyes from the left column is shyness and the negative side is insolence and shameless.
“וְהָיוּ הַכְּרֻבִים פֹּרְשֵׂי כְנָפַיִם לְמַעְלָה, סֹכְכִים בְּכַנְפֵיהֶם עַל-הַכַּפֹּרֶת, וּפְנֵיהֶם, אִישׁ אֶל-אָחִיו; אֶל-הַכַּפֹּרֶת–יִהְיוּ, פְּנֵי הַכְּרֻבִים”
“And the cherubim shall spread out their wings on high, screening the ark-cover with their wings, with their faces one to another; toward the ark-cover shall the faces of the cherubim be.”
The Zohar teaches us that the eyelids are the aspect of the cherubim that are above the Holy Ark’s cover. The eye balls as explained previously, have 7 layers for the Sefirot of Zeir Anpin and Malchut.
The folds of the eyelids protect the eyes like the cover of the Holy Ark. The eye lids margins with the eyelashes are like the Cherubim that open and close the connection between the upper and lower levels.
Moses was communicating with God ‘between’ the wings of the Cherubim.
“וְנוֹעַדְתִּי לְךָ, שָׁם, וְדִבַּרְתִּי אִתְּךָ מֵעַל הַכַּפֹּרֶת מִבֵּין שְׁנֵי הַכְּרֻבִים, אֲשֶׁר עַל-אֲרוֹן הָעֵדֻת–אֵת כָּל-אֲשֶׁר אֲצַוֶּה אוֹתְךָ, אֶל-בְּנֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל ”
“And there I will meet with you, and I will speak with you from above the ark-cover, from between the two cherubim which are upon the ark of the testimony (Torah), of all things which I will give you in commandment unto the children of Israel.”
The eyes are holy bi-directional channels; their power goes both ways like conversing with God. What we see with our eyes affect our physical body and our souls. If we ‘input’ negative sights, we become influenced by negativity. If we input positive and holiness, then our soul receives pure light in return.

The Zohar teaches us about another aspect of the eyes’ holiness by referencing Genesis 3:21
“וַיַּעַשׂ יְהוָה אֱלֹהִים לְאָדָם וּלְאִשְׁתּוֹ, כָּתְנוֹת עוֹר–וַיַּלְבִּשֵׁם ”
“And the LORD God made for Adam and for his wife garments of skins, and clothed them”
After the sin, God had to separate Adam and Eve from the Garden of Eden and their access to the Tree of Life. He made them ‘garments of skin’ and ‘blinded’ them from seeing the Tree of Life. This is the purpose of the eyelids that separate the pure soul and the spiritual world from the physical world of Malchut. When the eyes are open we are connected to the limitation of the physical world of Malchut and when we close them we have ability to ‘travel’ in the spiritual realm.
We can easily sin and harm the soul with wrong use of our eyes. We have angels above our eyes and we should train ourselves to tell them to disconnect from all negativity that is in our environment. There are negative situations that we can and should help like accidents or prevention of a negative situation.
From Isiah’s prophecy (Isaiah 33:15)
“הֹלֵךְ צְדָקוֹת, וְדֹבֵר מֵישָׁרִים; מֹאֵס בְּבֶצַע מַעֲשַׁקּוֹת, נֹעֵר כַּפָּיו מִתְּמֹךְ בַּשֹּׁחַד, אֹטֵם אָזְנוֹ מִשְּׁמֹעַ דָּמִים, וְעֹצֵם עֵינָיו מֵרְאוֹת בְּרָע.”
“He that walk righteously, and speak uprightly; he that despise the gain of oppressions, that shake his hands from holding of bribes, that stop his ears from hearing of blood, and shut his eyes from looking upon evil”
The rule is that if we are not directly connected to the situation or have ability to help or if it is not our duty (police, health and other related professionals) then we should keep going and forget what we even saw.
So don’t ignore if it is your business or can bring light to the situation but if not, then definitely get away from that place as fast as you can, leaving behind you a blessing that the light will come to correct that negativity.
The PFR aspect of this is that if a person doesn’t have proper sizes of eye lids then it reflects flaws in a person’s soul and general imbalance.
