Ramchal: A Mystical Experience Print E-mail
Written by Machberes Avodas Hashem   

RamchalOn the first day of the month of Sivan 5487, 1727, while I was reciting in order to reach mystical meditation, I fell asleep and when I woke up I heard a voice saying, “I am descending to reveal hidden secrets of the Holy King.” I was standing and trembling for a while and then I became composed. And the voice did not stop, and told a secret as he had said.

 

The second day, at the same time, I was trying to meditate while alone in the room and the voice returned and told another secret. Afterwards, one day, he told me that he was a herald sent from heaven and delivered to me specific mystical meditations to perform daily so that he would come. And I did not see him; I only heard his voice speaking through my mouth.

Then he also permitted me to ask questions. And then, for three months, he gave me personal vigils to perform every day so I would be worthy of the Revelation of Elijah, of blessed memory. And then he ordered me to write a book on Kohelet, the verses of which he has been interpreting to me one by one. Then came Elijah and told the secrets that he told.

All these things I was doing while I was lying prostrate and I saw the holy souls in the image of a man, as within a dream. (Iggerot Ramchal #39 to Rabbi Benjamin haKohen.
