The month of Kislev (Mazal Keshet, Sagittarius) if the 9th month of the Hebrew year. It is the aspect of Yessod. On the 9th day of Kislev (this year it falls on Saturday, November 17th, 2018), we arrive on the 9th of the 9th, which is Yessod of Yessod. The gate of Yessod is open and this once a year event gives us the opportunity to tap into the level of Yessod, drawing the light of sustenance and abundance. It is a time of goodwill making this month known for miracles.
If you miss the 9th of Kislev, you can still connect to this light until the end of the month of Kislev but the gate is open wider on the 9th of the 9th. Furthermore, on the 9th hour of the 9th day of the 9th month, we have all the levels of Yessod aligned with the level of Binah where all energy of fulfillment, success, and abundance are coming from.
On Hanukkah, we celebrate the connection to Binah by lighting the 8 lights. These lights are called ‘children of Binah’ ‘בני בינה ימי שמונה…’.
It is a good time to meditate and plan for the future, on a spiritual and material level. The first half of the month (until the 15th of Kislev, November 33rd, 2018) has the strongest revelation of this light. The lighting of the Chanukah candles in the last week of this month reveals the light of miracles, carrying it to the next month and to the rest of the year.
The secret of the 9th of the 9th of the 9th is revealed by the kabbalist, Rabbi Avraham Marimon HaSfaradi of blessed memory (Brit Menucha). This kabbalist is mentioned and referenced by Rabbi Chaim Vital in the writings of the Holy Ari.

Rabbi Avraham Azulai of blessed memory wrote in his book Chesed Le’Avraham, “I saw in the book ‘Brit Menucha’ that the ninth month in the ninth day on the ninth hour is a time of great success and the reason for this is because it is the ninth wheel of the Yessod and is a pipe of abundance”.
Meditate for yourself and for others to channel this energy into your life and for the whole world.
Remember that the Yessod is the funnel of the light to Malchut and your meditation should match that energy. Meditate big, Meditate globally. Be in positive and sharing consciousness at all time.
How to maximize on this spiritual connection
It is not a holiday and there is no special prayer defined for it but it is revealed by the kabbalists and we should use kabbalistic tools for this connection.
The key to open the gate of Yessod is by doing Tzedakah.
Reading the text of “Elijah Opened” is also a key to open spiritual levels. Below are several links to this sacred and powerful text from the Tikunei Zohar. It is said by Elijah the prophet as opening the study of the 70 Tikunei Zohar that Rabbi Shimon made to support the Shechinah in our world.

Then we need to connect to the Sefirah of Yessod through Joseph that is the chariot to it. We do that by scanning special sections from Zohar Miketz.

The best time is in the morning and on the ninth hour of the day (counting from sunrise) about 2 to 3 pm your local time. Anytime before sundown is good.
If you pray the afternoon prayer, scan the Zohar texts before starting the Mincha prayer. During the silent standing prayer and just before “Baruch ata …Shomea Tefila”, inject your own personal meditation.
Always include others in your meditation. Remember that success can not be sustained for long without sharing and caring for others.
B”H you have meaningful meditation and benefit from the energy of this month.
