Chaya already gave you a very detailed answer. And she is right today there is no restriction on studying Kabbalah, it is open and free for everyone. The Holy Sparks are the soul embryos inside all of us, and by connecting them together, building a common, united vessel we can reveal the Light of the Creator in this vessel. And every situation we are in, every scenario we face is another opportunity for this work. But the most important part of it is that there is no individual soul, no individual correction, only connecting together can we achieve our purpose.… Read more »

You do not necessarily have to go to the Kabbalah / Cabbala or to any other ancient or new scripture or picture and bury yourself within their depths in order to try and throw light upon those mysterious symbolic representations to try and discover the Holy Sparks within each situation in your life, within any whatsoever event that glowingly may touch upon your life; not necessarily, even if that traditional method may be a decisive part, or decisively can contribute to some of your own illumination through the use of your own … light; for some, that method can be… Read more »

You have received such great answers above already, all sharing in relevant spiritual knowledge regarding “Holy Sparks”. You know brother, there are many forms of this ‘Holy Spark’, we look to God first, but he placed many people in our lives, to love, friends, brothers sisters, , parents, many relationships which bless and encourage us. Their love, care and wisdom has been planted with us us when we need strength, those sparks of light, when we are in darkness, those sparks of warmth when we feel cold. Friendships cause us to glow, and one way to understand God’s presence is… Read more »

All of Judaism teaches to look to the best in every situation. Divine sparks are also the Jewish people that have been assimilated into their surrounding culture. It is a good deed to aid these sparks to return home to Judaism.

Yes, the reason all of us, men and women, are here on earth is to repair it, return the Holy Sparks, shine G-d’s light to the world. There is no longer a ban on learning Kabbalah. “Kabbalah” is a Jewish concept which means “received” meaning to ‘get’ the Torah at the deepest levels of our being. For you to receive, you first must become a strong vessel. YOU would be the vessel to Kabbalah/receive. This is essentially a change in consciousness as a result of learning (real) Torah. Once you become the vessel to receive, have a change of consciousness,… Read more »

Genuine Kabbalah can only be studied within the context of Judaism, since it involves a particular way of interpreting the Torah, the holy Jewish text.

Historically, only men over the age of 40 were allowed to study Kabbalah, as it was recognised as requiring a certain level of maturity.

If you’re really interested, I recommend reading these books, in *this* order:
Torah For Dummies
Kabbalah For Dummies

– both by Arthur Kurzweil.

It will give you a basic and enjoyable overview of the main concepts.

This question is an example of why regular people are not supposed to learn Kabbalah. It’s hard to understand without an extensive background in comprehensive Torah and Talmudic study.
