The Unification Epicenter of True Lightworkers
Music and Kabbalah... What is the connection between them? Everyone has a conception of what music is, but not everyone, by far, knows what Kabbalah is.
The essence of Kabbalah is shrouded in secrecy, but there has always been an interest in Kabbalah. According to legends, one who knows Kabbalah and masters its secrets can control our world and the spiritual
worlds that influence our world, revealing its past, present and
Kabbalah is the science of the structure of the universe, the developmental laws of the spiritual worlds and our world,
and the laws of man's purpose.
Kabbalah is a science of the impact of human desires on the surrounding world.
All Kabbalistic books are written in the language of feelings and desires. This language is unique and strictly scientific, employing graphs, formulae and diagrams. It explains how to alter our desires in
order to purposefully influence the entire world. Through such graphs
and schemes, Kabbalah describes one's feelings, the person’s soul. Music
also speaks to the person in a language of feelings and emotions, and
as such, is close to Kabbalah.
What is music? It is an emotion captured in its evolvement. Only music can deliver the process of transforming feelings through time. That is why, to those who have not yet perceived the spiritual world,
the music of Kabbalah provides a certain analogy of the impression of
spirituality that is felt by the Kabbalist.
The more evolved a person’s feelings, the more one will delight in what is heard. In
music, a sensitive person can open an entire world for themselves,
undergoing different emotional states from bliss to tragedy. And the
more one develops one’s feelings, the more intricately he will sense
that which the music transmits.
In much the same way, one who studies Kabbalah cultivates appropriate inner instruments for comprehending spirituality, through which spiritual information can be perceived. As a musician looks into notes
and hears music through his- or her inner sensation, a Kabbalist, while
reading Kabbalistic texts, senses the spiritual world within.
A person’s very first spiritual sensation when spirituality is revealed,
is thankfulness to the Creator. One begins to sense this higher power
and sees how it brought him out of a dead-end existence into an
infinite, flawless world of absolute awareness and perfection. It is
this sensation that Rav Baruch Ashlag (Rabash) transmitted through his
music to the words of the psalm:
I thank you for saving my soul from death
My eyes from tears
My feet from entering hell.
The great Kabbalists who wrote the holy books depict the secrets of the universe, and we are also privileged to the melodies created by the great Kabbalists Yehuda Ashlag and his son Baruch Ashlag. Through the
language of feelings, their melodies express spiritual sensations and
Rav Yehuda Ashlag attained all of the universe’s secrets, and depicted them in his compositions, the Sulam (Ladder)
Commentary to The Zohar, Talmud Eser Sefirot (The
Study of the Ten Sefirot)... and he also implanted them in his
The existing location of the soul in the spiritual world is referred to as its root. The roots of souls differ. Souls
descend into our world and incarnate in bodies. As the roots of souls
differ, the objectives that each soul must complete in our world differ
as well. That is why each body is nothing more than a mechanism for
completing the soul’s plan of development.
The person begins to feel attracted to spirituality, a striving to his spiritual root, desires to attain it right now, to be able to sense all the worlds today, while still living in this world.
Kabbalistic music reveals and develops the person’s spiritual potential.
Kabbalistic melodies are not subjected to typical musical analysis. From the point of view of classical music, these melodies may appear banal in their structure and musical language.
But those persons with an inclination for the ascension of their souls in this lifetime, who wish to attain the Upper World and the entire universe, sense in this music something beckoning them into the
We do not know how our musical comprehension is structured. Why do we feel the major chords in a different emotional and
sensible tone than the minor ones? Why do we sense the major as
something brighter, more open, and happier than the minor?
Many musicians with perfect musical hearing see colors in notes, chords, and
tones. No one knows how this occurs and why such associations of color,
sound, taste, and sensations appear within us. No one knows the
structure of our receptors, which perceive absolutely immaterial
Kabbalists, however, understand how these devices work within us, because they know the structure of our soul. As such, Kabbalists can instill spiritual information into musical sounds. That is why
Kabbalistic music is a means of infusing the inner world of the person
with information of everything that surrounds him.
What the music of our world contains is connected to the personal, earthly
sensations and emotions of the composers. Composers have always aspired
to reflect the predicaments of creation in music, yet these attempts had
never gone beyond a mere surmise or personal feeling.
Only melodies written by Kabbalists actually enable us to enter into sensations of eternity, sensations of soul’s movement, pushing us to an understanding of our essence as a part of one eternal universe.
Kabbalistic music is written by great Kabbalists as an expression of
their spiritual sensations. It is inherently located at a high spiritual
A spiritual sensation cannot be forgotten. That which was played and felt once remains and can be repeated at any moment. This feeling can later be manipulated, creating most refined shades of emotion. In every
melody there is a different feeling corresponding to each particular
spiritual state. Due to the elevated level of its composer, each melody
speaks of the ethereal as it elevates one across the spiritual world -
to eternity and perfection.
