In my recent article, Hashem's Special Kids, I mentioned a new tikkun (soul correction) that was revealed to one of today's hidden (lamed vav) tzadikkim by Eliyaho HaNavi. The hidden tzaddik then revealed the complete formula to my Rebbe - Rabbi Shalom Arush who has revealed it to us. Since my article was published there have been requests for the actual tikkun so here it is:
1. The Tikkun should only be done on Thursday evenings.
2. Starting at sunset on Thursday evening refrain from speaking; this should continue until after the morning prayers are completed. Only words of learning Torah may be spoke during this time.
3. Divide the night into three equal parts. Starting from shkia (sunset) until alos hashacher (dawn).
4. During the first part of the night learn Talmud.
5. During the second part of the night learn Mishna.
6. During the third part of the night say the entire Sefer Tehillim.
7. Following the Tehillim do an hour of hisbodidus (personal pray).
8. Immerse oneself in a mikvah before alos hashacher.
9. Recite the vidui hagadol (confession) of Reb Nissim Gaon which can be found in some nusach sefard siddorim or in pamplet form (usually distributed before Yom kippur).
10. Pray at a netz hachamer minyon (at sunrise).
There is someone in our Yeshiva, Yeshiva Chute Shel Chesed, who has been following this procedure dutifully for 4 months and has seen an approximate 40% improvement in his autistic child's condition. When Rav Arush told this to the hidden tzadik, the tzadik said that if this person will continue the tikkun his child will be completely healed.
The tikkun is an extremely demanding procedure. It requires physical, emotional and spiritual preparation. Particularly one should not undertake to perform the tikkun when under pressure or strain. It is very important to do the tikkun with joy. If one is not able to do the tikkun with joy, it is better not to do it at that time. Do not underestimate the power of your regular hisbodidus to also bring about miracles.
Wishing you Great Hatzlacha,
