Rabbi Shimon informs his son that Bilaam and his sons flew into the air when they saw Pinchas. A member of the tribe of Dan named Tzelyah flew into the air after him, and having found the correct secret path due to some shouted advice from Pinchas, was able to bring Bilaam to earth. The advice from Pinchas had to do with the serpent, and in the end Tzelyah was only able to kill Bilaam with a sword that had a snake engraved on either side; thus Bilaam died by means of the same force by which he had lived. Rabbi Shimon says that Bilaam's bones rotted and turned into harmful snakes, and even the worms that ate his flesh turned into snakes. The book of Asmodeus says that people can still perform powerful witchcraft with those snakes that are found near the rock where Bilaam died. Rabbi Shimon says that the only thing that has the power to catch one of those snakes is hot semen; this is a secret that Solomon told to the Queen of Sheba.
Pasook 173. from the Zohar Commentary on the Parasha Balak
אָן הֲוָה בִּלְעָם בְּהַיא שַׁעֲתָא. אִי תֵּימָא בְּמִדְיָן, הָא כְּתִיב וְעַתָּה הִנְנִי הוֹלֵךְ לְעַמִּי. אִי אָזַל לֵיהּ, מַאן יָהֲבֵיהּ בְּמִדְיָן. אֶלָּא הַהוּא רָשָׁע, כֵּיוָן דְּחָמָא דְּנָפְלוּ מִיִשְׂרָאֵל כ"ד אֲלַף עַל עֵיטוֹי, אִתְעַכָּב תַּמָּן וַהֲוָה בָּעֵי מִנַּיְיהוּ אַגְרוֹי. וּבְעוֹד דְּאִתְעַכָּב תַּמָּן, אָתָא פִּנְחָס וְרַבְרְבָנֵי חֵילָא לְתַמָן.
HE INQUIRES: Where was Bilaam at that time? If you say in Midian, why is it written: "And now, behold, I go to my people" (Bemidbar 24:14). If he already left, who placed him in Midian? HE RESPONDS: As soon as that wicked man saw that 24,000 fell from Yisrael due to his advice, TO OFFER THE WOMEN TO PROSTITUTE WITH YISRAEL, he wished to collect from them his recompense. While he was still there, Pinchas and the chiefs of the army arrived there.
The question regarding the whereabouts of Bilaam is a hint by the Zohar regarding Astral Travel and other psychic tools available to mankind that most people do not possess and are unaware of. We do not need to know the whereabouts of Bilaam he lived 2500 years ago. How does he impact my life today? This same question is a hint towards another issue as well. The whereabouts of Bilaam is hinting to his reincarnation as a stone. The ARI picked up on this hint where no one before him had done.Pasook 174. from the Zohar Commentary on the Parasha Balak
כֵּיוָן דְּחָמָא לְפִנְחָס, פָּרַח בַּאֲוֵירָא, וּתְרֵין בְּנוֹהִי עִמֵּיהּ, יוֹנוֹס וְיוֹמְבְּרוֹס. וְאִי תֵּימָא, הָא מִיתוּ בְּעוֹבָדָא דְּעֵגֶל, דְּהָא אִינּוּן עַבְדוּ. אֶלָּא הָכִי הֲוָה וַדָאי, וְדָא הוּא דִּכְתִיב, וַיִּפּוֹל מִן הָעָם בַּיוֹם הַהוּא כִּשְׁלֹשֶׁת אַלְפֵי אִישׁ. וְכִי לָא הֲווֹ יַדְעֵי חוּשְׁבָּנָא זְעֵירָא דָּא, וַהֲרֵי כַּמָה חוּשְׁבָּנִין אַחֲרָנִין, רָמָאִין עִלָּאִין וְרַבְרְבָנִין, יָדַע קְרָא לְמִמְנֵי, וְהָכָא כִּשְׁלֹשֶׁת אַלְפֵי אִישׁ. אֶלָּא אִינּוּן בְּנוֹי דְּבִלְעָם, יוֹנוֹ"ס וְיוֹמְבְּרוֹ"ס, דַּהֲווֹ שַׁקְלֵי כִּשְׁלֹֹשֶׁת אַלְפֵי אִישׁ.
As soon as BILAAM noticed Pinchas, he flew into the air and his two sons with him, Yunus and Yumbrus. You might say that they died during the episode of the calf, since they are the ones who created and formed THAT CALF. It was surely so, and it is written: "And there fell of the people that day about 3,000 men" (Shemot 32:28). Didn't they know how to figure and account for such a small number? Haven't we found then accounting for other higher and much greater censuses? The scripture there knew how to count and here it is written: "About 3,000 men," MEANING THAT THEY DID NOT KNOW PRECISELY. It is only because these were the sons of Bilaam, Yunus and Yumbrus, who were equal to 3,000 men.
Again this Pasook is filled with hints. What does it mean that Yunus and Yumbrus were equal to 3,000 men. This is hinting to the idea that consciousness which is desire to receive as a form of capacity. The strength or power of a person's desire to receive can be equivalent to a desire of many people. Knowing this information is important in the outcome of the manifestation of someone's desire. Also let us say that someone has a desire for a certain woman. There are 6 billion people who do not have a desire for this woman either because there is no affinity or they have never met her. Can one say that the desire for this woman is a huge development? What does it mean that Bilaam's sons were equal to 3,000 men? Does it mean that the manifestation in the physical world depends on a scale. If Yunum and Yumbrus desired this woman and someone else desired with a desire equivalent to 3001 men. The women would be told to like that man and not the others. There are many questions from this phrasing.
We also need to ask why was Yunus and Yumbrus not killed on the day of the Golden Calf? It is also interesting to me the question raised by the Zohar about numbers not being exact in the Torah when the Creator knows everything, why do most of us not notice the idea of being approximate in the Torah and what does that teach. In this Pasook it teaches the 2 sons of Bilaam were still alive, or somehow one can escape from Gehinom if they have the merit and capacities of multiple men. Do you think that is true?
Pasook 175. from the Zohar Commentary on the Parasha Balak
אֶלָּא הַהוּא רָשָׁע, כָּל חַרְשִׁין דְּעָלְמָא הֲוָה יָדַע, וְנָטַל אוֹף הָכִי חַרְשִׁין דִּבְנוֹי, דַּהֲווֹ רְגִילִין בְּהוּ, וּבְהוּ טָאס וְאִסְתְּלַּק. פִּנְחָס חָמָא לֵיהּ, דְּהֲוָה ב"נ חַד טָס בַּאֲוֵירָא, וַהֲוָה מִסְתְּלַק בַּאֲוֵירָא מֵעֵינָא, רָמָא קָלָא לִבְנֵי חֵילָא, אָמַר אִית מַאן דְּיָדַע לְמִפְרַח אֲבַּתְרֵיהּ דְּהַהוּא רָשָׁע, דְּהָא בִּלְעָם אִיהוּ, חָמוּ לֵיהּ דְּהֲוָה טָאס.
HE RESPONDS: It is only because that wicked man knew all the magic in the world and he even received the sorcery of his sons, in which they were accustomed. With those, he flew in the air and ascended. Pinchas saw him, a person flying in the air and vanishing in the air. He raised his voice to the members of his army and said, Is there anyone who is capable of flying and chasing after that wicked man, who is no other than Bilaam himself? They saw him flying.
Can a man fly? Can a man fly without a flying carpet? Is this a metaphor or a reality? Why did Pinchas ask if someone could fly? The academic Kabbalists teach that this is a Metaphor. The Sefer Yetzirah teaches that this is the destiny of mankind - to be able to fly. If you are interested come learn the Sefer Yetzirah with me. No, i do not guarantee you will fly. That is up to how capable of cleaning yourself. If you become sufficiently pure and you study the Sefer Yetzirah it will happen. Another question is why did Pinchas see Bilaam and no other? Was it do to him being a Priest and unable to kill without losing his Priesthood or was it due to the level of purity that was created by his Zealousness in killing Zimri and Cosbi. Why did Pinchas shout to his army? Why not use telepathy which would not alert anyone else? These questions do not occur to people and that is what creates blockages in the development of people. Blockages are created as much from lack than from actions. This is something most people do not consider.
Pasook 176. from the Zohar Commentary on the Parasha Balak
צַלְיָה בְּרֵיהּ דְּשִׁבְטָא דְּדָן, קָם וְנָטַל שָׁלְטָנוּ דְּשַׁלִּיט עַל חַרְשִׁין, וּפָרַח בַּתְרֵיהּ. כֵּיוָן דְּחָמָא לֵיהּ הַהוּא רָשָׁע, עֲבַד אָרְחָא אוֹחֲרָא בַּאֲוֵירָא, וּבָקַע חָמֵשׁ אֲוִירִין בְּהַהוּא אֹרַח, וְאִסְתַּלָּק וְאִתְכַּסֵּי מֵעֵינָא, כְּדֵין אִסְתַּכֵּן צַלְיָה בְּהַהִיא שַׁעֲתָא, וַהֲוָה בְּצַעֲרָא דְּלָא הֲוָה יָדַע מַה יַעְבֵּיד.
Tzelyah, a member from Dan's tribe, rose and took charge of the powers that are dominant over witchcraft, and flew after him. When the wicked one noticed him, he took another course in the air and penetrated five other layers of air in that course. He rose higher and disappeared from eyesight. At that point, Tzelyah came into danger and was distressed, since he did not know what to do.
chanoch adds: Do not perceive this Pasook as speaking physically. Realize that man has the responsibility to control all negativity and to utilize that negativity to do good with it. Realize that Bilaam was penetrating different dimensions and needed to hide within these dimensions. He had the knowledge but so did some of the Children of Israel. Yet even in this level of knowledge there is a hierarchy. Bilaam might escape since Tzelyah became confused and distressed which caused him to misuse the consciousness of flying and start to fall. One must stay focused.
Pasook 177. on the Zohar Commentary on the Parasha Balak
רָמָא לֵיהּ קָלָא פִּנְחָס וְאָמַר, טוּלָא דְּתָנִינַיָּיא דְּרַבְעִין עַל כָּל חִוְיָין, הַפוֹךְ בְּמִזְיָיךְ. מִיַּד יָדַע וְגַלֵּי הַהוּא אַחֲרָא, וְעָאל לְגַבֵּיהּ. מִיַּד אִתְגְּלֵי, וְנַחְתּוּ תַּרְוַויְיהוּ קַמֵּיהּ דְּפִנְחָס.
Pinchas raised his voice and shouted to him, The shadow of the crocodiles that crouch over all the snakes, turn over in your hair. TZELYAH instantly knew and discovered that other path, and entered into it. BILAAM immediately appeared and they both descended in front of Pinchas.
chanoch adds: Tzelyah has the meaning of "The shadow of the God of the upper worlds." In the Zohar the word Crocodile is a code word regarding a leader of negativity. These Crocodiles control the negative system.

תָּא חֲזֵי, הַהוּא רָשָׁע כְּתִיב בֵּיהּ וַיֵּלֶךְ שֶׁפִי, דָּא הוּא עֶלְיוֹן דְּדַרְגִּין דִּילֵיהּ, חִוְיָא דְּכוּרָא. צַלְיָה נָטַל תְּרֵין, דְּכַר וְנוּקְבָּא. וּבְהַהוּא שַׁלִּיט עָלֵיהּ, בְּגִין דְּשֻׁלְטָנוּ דְּשַׁלִּיט עָלַיְיהוּ נָטַל, וְאִתְכַּפְיָין קַמֵּיהּ. וְדָא הֲוָה שְׁפִיפוֹן עֲלֵי אֹרַח. עַל הַהוּא אֹרַח, דְּעָבֵד הַהוּא רָשָׁע, דִּכְתִיב יְהִי דָן נָחָשׁ עֲלֵי דֶּרֶךְ, דָּא שִׁמְשׁוֹן. שְׁפִיפוֹן עֲלֵי אֹרַח, דָּא צַלְיָה.
Come and see that wicked man, about whom it is written: "And he went to a steep place (Heb. shefi)" (Bemidbar 23:3). This is one of his higher levels, which is the male snake. Tzelyah took both male and female and, through this, he was able to overpower him, because he took over the charge that was dominating them and they were subjugated to him. This was "an adder (Heb. shefifon) in the path" (Beresheet 49:17), which is on the same path that this wicked one took, as is written: "Dan shall be a serpent by the way" (Ibid.), which refers to Samson. "An adder in the path" refers to Tzelyah.
chanoch adds: This is referring to the Blessing given to the Tribe of Dan by Jacob. Since this discussion of Tzelyah comes from a Midrash in the Zohar if someone does not study Zohar one can never fully understand Torah. This is why it is so important to read and study Zohar.

Through his merit, David's might balanced in his favor, as is written: "And David lamed all the chariot horses" (II Shmuel 8:4). "So that his rider shall fall backwards" (Beresheet 49:17) refers to Srayah, who will come with Messiah, son of Ephraim. He will be a descendant of Dan's tribe and he will take revenge and do wars with the rest of the nations. When this one rises, you will wait for the redemption of Yisrael, as is written: "I wait for Your salvation, HaShem" (Ibid.). Although this verse has already been explained, the definition of it is as we mentioned and as was explained. The verse in the scripture is proof of this.
chanoch adds: Are you realizing how important the Zohar is to the study of Torah? Without it one can never decide what the full meaning a particular verse represents.

כֵּיוָן דְּנָחַת הַהוּא רָשָׁע לְקַמֵּי פִּנְחָס, אָמַר לֵיהּ, רָשָׁע, כַּמָה גִּלְגּוּלִין בִּישִׁין עַבָדְת, עַל עַמָּא קַדִישָׁא. אָמַר לֵיהּ לְצַלְיָה, תָּא וְקַטְלֵיהּ, וְלָא בִּשְׁמָא, דְּלָא אִתְחֲזֵי הַאי, לְאַדְכְּרָא עָלֵיהּ קְדוּשָּׁה עִלָּאָה, בְּגִין דְּלָא תְּיפּוּק נִשְׁמָתֵיהּ, וְתִתְכְּלִיל בְּמִלִּין דְּדַרְגִּין קַדִּישִׁין, וְתִתְקַיֵּים בֵּיהּ מַה דְּאָמַר תָּמוֹת נַפְשִׁי מוֹת יְשָׁרִים.
When the wicked man landed in front of Pinchas, he said to him, You evil man, how many evils have you inflicted on this holy nation? He told Tzelyah, Get up and kill him, but not by the Name, since he is not worthy to have high holiness mentioned upon him, in order that his soul should not depart included in words of holy levels, because the words he said will be fulfilled, "Let me die the death of the righteous" (Bemidbar 23:10).
When a Priest kills he loses his Priesthood, the only time this is not true is when Pinchas killed Cozby and Zimri. He did die but the souls of Nadav and Avihu entered into him. Now here is another instance when he might be judged as the cause of a death. This is due to the idea that since he instructed Tzelyah to kill Bilaam he is the cause. Yet he is the Priest of this war which has certain conditions that allow him to be the semi cause and to not have the effect of losing his Priesthood. Know that he could not actually kill Bilaam in a physical action himself yet as the Priest of the war he is responsible and may direct others to kill without receiving the consequences that normally would apply.

בְּהַהוּא שַׁעֲתָא עָבֵד בֵּיהּ כַּמָה זִינֵי מוֹתָא, וְלָא מִית, עַד דְּנָטַל חַרְבָּא דַּהֲוָה חָקִיק עֲלוֹי חִוְיָא מֵהַאי סִטְרָא, וְחִוְיָא מֵהַאי סִטְרָא. אָ"ל פִּנְחָס, בְּדִילֵיהּ קְטוֹל לֵיהּ, וּבְדִילֵיהּ יְמוּת. כְּדֵין קָטַל לֵיהּ, וְיָכִיל לֵיהּ. דְּכַךְ אָרְחוֹי דְּהַהוּא סִטְרָא, מַאן דְּאָזַל אֲבַּתְרָאָה, בָּהּ יָמוּת, וּבָהּ תִּפּוּק נִשְׁמָתֵיהּ, וּבָהּ תִּתְכְּלִיל. וְהָכִי מִית בִּלְעָם, וְדַיְינֵי לֵיהּ בְּדִינִין בְּהַהוּא עָלְמָא, וְלָא אִתְקְבִיר לְעָלְמִין. וְגַרְמוֹי כֻּלְּהוּ אִתְרְקָבוּ, וְאִתְעָבֵידוּ כַּמָה חִוְיָין מְזוּהֲמִין, מְנַזְּקֵי שְׁאַר בִּרְיָין, וַאֲפִילּוּ תּוֹלַעְתִּין דַּהֲווֹ אַכְלֵי בִּשְׂרֵיהּ, אִתְהֲדָרוּ חִוְיָין.
At that moment, he tried to kill him in a variety of ways, but he didn't die until he took the sword that had a snake engraved on either side. Pinchas told him, Kill him with his own and by his own he will die. He then killed him and prevailed over him, since that is the manner of that side. Whoever follows it dies through it. Through it, his soul will leave and within it, HIS SOUL will be included. That is how Bilaam died. He is punished with punishments of that world and he was never buried. And all his bones were rotten and turned into many filthy snakes that are harmful to other creatures. Even the worms that ate his flesh turned into snakes.
chanoch adds: When someone involves themselves with the deeper level of the occult system they become involved with and absorbed on the soul levels into the negative system. This is also what happened to the man from Germany whose body was never found. There are midrashim indicating that the man from Germany was no longer human when the war ended and had been absorbed by the occult system he played with.

I found in the book of Asmodeus, which he gave to King Solomon, that whoever wants to perform powerful magic that is unobservable by the eye, if he knows the rock where Bilaam had his downfall, he will locate there some of these snakes that were made from the bones of that evil one. If he kills one of those SNAKES, he could perform high-level sorcery with its head, other magic with its body and different witchcraft with its tail. Each one contains three types of witchcraft.
chanoch adds: Thus we have directions to control the 9 levels of the negative Sefirotic system.

When the queen of Sheba came to Solomon, ONE of the things that she asked Solomon WAS, How do you catch a bone of a snake that contains three sorceries? Instantly, "there was not anything hid from the king, which he told her not" (I Melachim 10:3). She asked about this and she required these snakes, but she could not capture one of them. What did he respond to her about these things she harbored in at her heart, AS IT SAYS, "SHE SPOKE TO HIM OF ALL THAT WAS IN HER HEART" (Ibid. 2)? This is what he informed her, as it says, "And Solomon answered her all her questions" (Ibid. 3). HE SAID, None of the world's inhabitants have power against those snakes, except for one secret thing. What is it? It is boiling hot semen.
chanoch adds: Thank you HaShem. Through this Zohar we find ways to heal anybody who is afflicted with Sorcery. The issue is, are you on a level to "see" the snake in the room? There are other tools available to us as well. This is the strongest tool available.

וְאִי תֵּימָא מַאן יָכִיל. אֶלָּא, בְּשַׁעֲתָא דְּהַהוּא שִׁכְבַת זֶרַע אַפִּיק ב"נ, כַּד אִיהוּ בְּתִיאוּבְתָּא, אַפִּיק לָהּ לִשְׁמָא דְּהַהוּא חִוְיָא, בִּרְעוּתָא דְּתִיאוּבְתָא. כַּד נָפִיק בִּרְתִּיחוּ, נַטְלֵי לֵיהּ מִיָּד בִּלְבוּשָׁא חֲדָא, וְהַהוּא לְבוּשָׁא זַרְקִין לְגַבֵּי חִוְיָא, מִיָּד כָּפִיף רֵישֵׁיהּ, וְתַפְסָן לֵיהּ, כְּמָה דְּתָפִיס תַּרְנְגוֹלָא דְּבֵיתָא. וְאִי בְּכָל מָאנֵי קְרָבִין דְּעָלְמָא, יִגְּחוּן בְּחַד מִנַּיְיהוּ, לָא יַכְלִין לֵיהּ. וּבְהַאי, לָא אִצְטְרִיךְ ב"נ בְּעָלְמָא מָאנֵי קְרָבָא, וְלָא מִלָּה אַחֲרָא וְלָא אִצְטְרִיךְ לְאִסְתַּמְּרָא מִנַּיְיהוּ דְּהָא כֻּלְּהוּ אִתְכַּפְיָין לְגַבֵּיהּ. כְּדֵין אִתְדָּבָקוּ אִינּוּן מִלִּין בִּלְבָבָהּ, וְתָאִיבַת לְהַאי.
If you wonder who has the power, it is only when a man is full of desire and he issues that semen that is expelled with the lustful desire for the purpose of defeating that snake. When it spurts out in boiling heat, it is captured immediately in a garment, and that garment is thrown onto the snake. Instantly, it bows down its head and is caught, like a domesticated rooster is caught. EVEN if all battle gear are prepared against one of them, it would not be successful. But when you do this, there is no need for any person in the world to use weapons, or any other thing, and he does not need to be constantly on watch against them, because they all become subservient to him. Then these words touched the heart OF THE QUEEN OF SHEBA, and she desired it.
chanoch adds: There are other sections of the Zohar that speaks to our understanding of the negative system. The Queen of Sheba can be translated as the Queen of "coming present time." She was a negative entity and person who tried to trap King Solomon. This Pasook is helpful in dealing with the negative system and controlling the spiritual system.

From here on, my son Elazar, the Holy One, blessed be He, did what He did with that wicked one, BILAAM. There is no need to reveal these hidden secrets; however, in order that the friends here should know things that are concealed, I revealed them to you since there are so many concealed laws of which people are unaware, and they are highly concealed great wonders. About BILAAM and about those comparable to him, we say, "But the name of the wicked shall rot" (Mishlei 10:7). Praised are the truly just, for the scripture says about them: "Surely the righteous shall give thanks to Your name..." (Tehilim 140:14).
chanoch adds: We must realize that the use of the Holy Names can be used by the negative people as well as the positive people. That is what is being revealed and reinforced in this Zohar.
