Sefer Sodot Eliyahu

Secrets of Eliyahu HaNavi

Kabbalistic Secrets

of the Biblical Narrative

Copyright © 2009 by Ariel Bar Tzadok. All rights reserved

.

 

"And Eliyahu the Tishbi, of the dwellers in Gilad, said to Ahab: As the L-rd, the G-d of Israel, lives, before whom I stand, there shall not be dew nor rain these years, but according to my word."                       Melakhim 1, 17:1


 

With these words the TaNaKh introduces us to the mysterious and powerful character of Eliyahu HaNavi. While most Biblical commentators cover the chapters detailing his life and escapades from either the historical or moralistic points of view, few if any ever touch upon the deeper lessons that these chapters teach about the ways and paths of the prophets.

 

There are many significant lessons contained in these few chapters that enable us to glean insights into what exactly was a prophet, how he trained, how he practiced and like how he lived the prophetic life. 

 

There are also other lessons herein about the true nature of prophetic power, and the apparent innate psychic mind/soul potentials that reside within us, awaiting our application of prophetic disciplines to release them. 

 

I believe that there is much to be learned from the enumerated experience of Eliyahu. I have long taught on this subject in my oral lessons, now it is time to put some of these ideas, teachings and their secrets into writing.

 

Without further delay or digression, let us jump right into the text and see what it really says, as well as to look at what it is not saying.

A Taste of Tikunei

Original Translations of
the Tikunei Zohar, with Commentary

 

Tikunei Zohar 22


"Place me as a seal upon your heart." (S.S.8:6).

What is the seal placed upon this place?

This is the sign of the Shabat and the Yom Tov holidays.

These are considered equal to the covenant of circumcision.

Like this is Shabat, the Shin thereof corresponds to the Shin of Shadai.

This includes within it the three supernal Hayot and the three Fathers.

Bet is four, the fourth of the Fathers and fourth to the three Hayot.

This is the Image of Man, but not [the] Man [himself].

This is what is written, "and the image of their faces ... the face of man" (Ez. 1:10).

Rather what Man? Yod Vav Dalet - Hey Alef - Vav Alef Vav - Hey Alef.

Shabat is Shadai.

YKVK is the private domain; it is 4 wide by 10 high.

Yod Vav Dalet - Hey Alef - Vav Alef Vav - Hey Alef.

Yod of Shadai corresponds to the sign of Shabat and the Yom Tov holidays.

Yod hints to the ten sefirot.

This seal is for the son of the King.

However, for the servant of the King his seal is Shadai, from the side of that which is said, "all who are called by My Name, for my Glory I created them, I formed them, I even made them" (Is. 32:7).

And what is this? This is Metatron whose numerical value equals that of Shadai.

He is the Small Man, in the Image of Above.

This is [the meaning] of "if like sons, or if like servants."

One who is of the image of the Lion, his seal will be the white face.

One whose seal is the Bull will be the red face.

One whose seal is the Eagle he will be green of face.

One whose seal is the Image of Man, he will be the black face,

like the Torah says, "I am black and pleasant" (S.S.1:5)."

 

Introduction

 

This is one of many poetical, metaphorical, archetypal teachings in this the most sublime of Zoharic teachings, the Tikunim.

 

The Tikunei Zohar is a work independent from the body of the greater Zohar. It stands on its own as a separate and unique system of teachings.

 

It is formatted into seventy sections called Tikunim. A Tikun is literally translated as "rectifications," but here such a translation does not apply. Here, the term Tikun is best translated simply as a "section."

Get Healthy!

*The Kabbalah of Physical Exercise

* Qigong and Torah, 
the Torah of Martial Arts,
& Great Value of Chinese Medicine

* The Mitzvah of Proper Diet

* Teshuva (Returning) -
Diet & Exercise

One of the most important things that one needs to have in order to properly walk the path towards God is the health, and strength of the physical body. 

Throughout the generations, the Sages have emphasized the importance of the Biblical commandment to be physically healthy, and strong. 

Unfortunately, today many people of religion do not properly observe this most important obligation.

Understanding the Sefirot of the Mind


 

The successful study of Kabbalah depends upon a proper understanding of the terms, and concepts used to communicate its profound lessons.
 

The Sefirot, therefore, outline the inner construct of the human psyche, and its internal interactions with the unconscious, the conscious, the emotions, and the physical senses.

 

Essentially, the pattern and teachings of the Sefirot are an esoteric metaphor, that outline an ancient Jewish mystical understanding of human psychology.

 

In this essential light, one can understand why the teachings about the Sefirot transcend their Jewish method of expression, and reach out with universal significance.

God is the Creator of nature.
God established the laws of nature
in accordance to
hidden Divine wisdom.
The laws of nature
reflect the Will of God.
Therefore, to follow the laws of nature
is to follow the Will of God.
This should be clear to all to see.
 
Yet, man must exit 
the prison of his own limited mind
and escape back to the real world of nature,
in order to there learn nature's Way,
and thereby come to embrace nature's Creator
and the Creator's Way, the Torah.
 
This is how we follow God.
We learn and live by Torah.
Look around you,
existence itself bares witness to this.
