Answer: There is a certain connection between a person’s properties and the properties of his future soul, but it is very difficult, even impossible, for a person to understand what qualities a soul has to reveal.
Question: Can a Kabbalist who is already on some spiritual level understand why he is in such a body with such properties and how he should develop from them?
Answer: Yes, this is possible, but only if he is in spiritual attainment. Naturally, he understands what, how, and why.
