Malchut is referred to as a whole as "the world of speech." Malkhuth also serves as the means for the establishment of identification with the outside of reality. The soul, in its divine meditation, can only ascend to the higher sefirot through the Malchut. In Psalm 118: 20 says, "This is the gate of the Lord, the righteous thereby enter."
The spiritual state identified in Chassidoet as corresponding to the sefirah of malchut is that of shifloet.
