Three questions I received on impure forces, hypnosis, and extinct species:
Question: What exactly is the male impure force, and how can one tell if one is being ruled by it?
My Answer: Don’t be concerned with things like impure forces. You should just always aspire toward bestowal, connection, and the Creator.
Question: You were recently asked by someone, “Is it okay for a Kabbalist to use hypnosis? Is it a tool the Creator allows us to use?” Your answer was “No, and it is not permitted.”
I would like some further elaboration on this. I can see that hypnosis can be a very manipulative tool in the wrong hands. I can also see that it would be a useful form of therapy. For example, if I had a family member with extreme anxieties, hypnosis might be an excellent tool for getting to the root of the issue and releasing it as opposed to simply administering anxiety drugs.
Why is it not permitted? After all, you say we must deal with our corporeal issues while we live in both worlds simultaneously.
My Answer: Yes, you can use it for treatment, but not as a distraction from correction.
Question: Is there a reason in the spiritual world why species of animals become extinct?
My Answer: It’s a consequence of many qualities becoming extinct within us. However, when we correct ourselves in the future, we will probably see some of these species reappear and their populations grow.
