Answer: A spiritual person is composed of seven Sefirot: Hesed, Gevura, Tifferet, Netzach, Hod, Yesod, and Malchut. The seven Sefirot are each composed of ten sub-Sefirot, making a total of seventy spiritual roots of people in this world, which are called the seventy nations of the world. The group of people who detached from the seventy nations, rising above themselves to the Creator are called Yashar-El (Isra-El) – straight to the Creator.
But in principle, that group is not a people but a group composed of different tribes that broke away from the seventy peoples who lived in Babylon. All seventy nations scattered throughout the world, and today, it is not even possible to say to which of the ancient Babylonian tribes the modern peoples belong. Not one of these people who lived in Babylon have remained in their pure form. All of them became mixed together. The enormous egoism that awakened in them scattered them in different directions. Each of these people were drawn to a place that corresponds to their souls. Later, they began to mix together and the people migrated.
In The Book of Zohar, it is written that if we correctly compare the land of Israel geographically with its spiritual root, it precisely matches the five parts of a spiritual Partzuf. Hermon is Keter, the Galilee is Hochma, the Jordan that connects Jerusalem with the Sea of Galilee is Bina, Jerusalem is Zeir Anpin, and the Dead Sea is Malchut.
This indicates the imprint on the geographic area in the nation of its higher roots.
Question: Can a person who visits these places feel something like the “Jerusalem Syndrome”?
Answer: Yes, particular people, when they move from one part of the country to another part, really feel sensations like these. They are either Kabbalists or people with high sensitivity.
Question: Is it possible to use this for spiritual advancement?
Answer: No. Our world is like an open map. If you have particular sensitivities in regard to it, you will feel where you are.
