Counting the Omer: Week 1

Road to Transformation:

Get out your running shoes! The Omer is a marathon of cosmic cleansing. Kabbalah teaches us that during these forty-nine days following Pesach, we need to take great care in ridding all negative influences from every area of our lives. After Pesach, we begin anticipating Shavuot, the next holiday and in essence the conclusion of Pesach. Pesach was a free connection. The Omer is the work we do to earn the Light of Pesach and Shavuot. We cleanse ourselves by counting the days of the Omer until Shavuot's arrival. The Omer is counted from the second night of Pesach through the night before Shavuot. It is best to count the Omer at nightfall; however, one may count at any time throughout the night.

Over the seven weeks we have the opportunity to break open klipot (negative shells) from within our being, releasing the Light that has been trapped by our own choices. Yes, the extraction process may be painful. But the benefits of releasing the trapped sparks of Light are more than worth it.

Week 1 - Correcting the Sefira of Chesed

About Chesed

Tree of LifeChesed, the most expansive of the Sefirot, representing Mercy, sits below Chochmah on the right-hand column. Chesed, representing pure positive energy, holds the still undifferentiated seed of all that has taken place between the upper Sefirot, and since it represents the total Desire to Share, it can be generous to a fault. We all have seen Chesed run amok. It is the person who weeps more for the criminal than for his victim; it is the poor man who has won the lottery and gives every penny of his new fortune to charity, leaving his own family destitute. Unrestrained, Chesed gives until it hurts - to almost everybody.
