Tikkun 70 – 77
The process of the circumcision removes the Klipot that got attached to the physical body when Adam did the first sin. The foreskin covers the ‘crown’ of Yessod and blocks the light from being easily revealed. The removal of it opens the channel of Yessod and a person has the greater potential to become righteous.
When a person dies, his soul ascends to upper levels. The forces of the negative side ty to ‘attack’ the soul, looking for holes in its garments to ‘suck’ as much energy as they can before the soul goes higher and beyond their reach.
A ‘heavy’ soul, meaning one with greater desires for the self and strong connection to the material world, is very slow to ascend and provides a good ‘meal’ for the other side while experiencing painful process. This is the passage through the gates of hell before the soul is judged and goes for the proper cleansing process.
The Torah laws instruct us to bury the body as soon as possible and before the sunset. This helps to shorten or skip the pain of the soul on the way up. As long as the body is not back in the ground, the soul doesn’t move to the next step.
The Zohar reveals to us that because of the circumcision God gives us an easy pass to the upper worlds and protectsthe soul from those who wish to harm it.
“מִי יַעֲלֶה-לָּנוּ הַשָּׁמַיְמָה ”
“’Who shall go up for us to heaven”
The Initials of this quote is the word ‘מילה’, ‘circumcision’ and the last letters spell the name יהוה YHVH. Our connection to YHVH with the process of correcting our body with positive actions pave us a smooth and ‘high way’ to the upper world.
We have the Torah and the Zohar as our ‘paving’ tool. With its light, we enrich our soul and complete our correction. When the time comes, we get on the highway reaching our destination with first class escort.
We all want to experience Mashiach and Final Redemption in our lives and we should believe that it will be today, but if not, then we are happy to have another working day earning more for the future.
And by the way, to be successful in your work you should enjoy every moment of it regardless of how hard or easy it is.
