Then after you purify the animal part of your ratzon l’kabel and transform it into a will to bestow to the point where “He who knows all secrets would testify that (you) won’t ever lapse”, you’ll enjoy an affinity with the world of Briah, and you’ll then ascend upward and receive Neshama-Light on a permanent level.
Once you then purify the verbal part of your body, you can then ascend upward to the sephirah of Chochma and receive the Chaya-Light there, even though you will not have yet permanently purified it, and though the light will not shine (upon you) permanently (yet).
