The Torah, “Leviticus,” 12:2, 12:4: Speak to the children of Israel, saying: If a woman conceives and gives birth to a male, she shall be unclean for seven days; as [in] the days of her menstrual flow, she shall be unclean. And for thirty three days she shall remain in the blood of purity; she shall touch not touch anything holy, nor may she enter the Sanctuary, until the days of her purification have been completed.
What is the meaning of purification? It is the scrutiny of our desires and our intentions and then the recognition of evil in them and the clarification of the right way of using them.
Then they are classified, picked out, and desires that cannot be used are kept away. But they remain inside, and so we have to place certain barriers to block them, to limit them in certain frameworks. All this is fulfilled in a period of 33 days.
Where does all that stem from? There are seven Sefirot in each Sefira Hesed, Gevura, Tifferet, and Netzach, which add up to 28 and 5 other Sefirot in Hod (Hesed, Gevura, Tifferet, Netzach, Hod) which total 33. This is identical to the counting of the Omer (33 of the Omer).
This means that 33 days (33 levels) have to go by in order to make sure that all the upper sources are corrected. The others don’t need to be corrected since they will be corrected by themselves.
The Torah, “Leviticus,” 12:5: “And if she gives birth to a female, she shall be unclean for two weeks, like her menstruation. And for sixty six days, she shall remain in the blood of purity.”
A male is the attribute of bestowal and a female is the attribute of receiving in order to bestow. Therefore, it is about a double system. Everything is very simple; it is pure physics. This is how the soul works.
