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 6 - Correcting the Sefira of Yesod
Yesod, or foundation, sits like a great reservoir at the bottom of the Sefirot. All the Sefirot above pour their intellect and their attributes into its vast basic where they are mixed, balanced, and made ready for transfer from a radiance so brilliant no mortal could survive in its presence into a form of energy that is manageable by human beings. Metaphorically speaking, Yesod is a cement truck that gathers all the raw components including water and sand, blends them together and pours out a wet mixture that will eventually solidify and harden into the cement that is our physical universe.
Consciousness for Week 6 by Karen Berg
Tonight we are entering week 6, which means we only have two weeks left. Keep pushing to make small changes each day.
Day 36, May 14-15, 2020
Today is the energy of Loving-kindness in Bonding. For today, be a channel of mercy, kindness and love for someone who you know needs guidance. Your actions below will activate abundance from above.
Day 37, May 15-16, 2020
Today is the energy of Discipline in Bonding. Sometimes it is more difficult to be right than to be wrong, harder to be cruel than to be kind. Today, set some boundaries. As hard as it seems, set them with human dignity and like water the Light will find its level.
Day 38, May 16-17, 2020
Today is the energy of Compassion in Bonding. Completion from a spiritual point of view is the balance between mercy and judgment. We need both to be complete - to be compassionate. Today, find a way to exercise both.
Day 39, May 17-18, 2020
Today is the energy of Endurance in Bonding. Perseverance in our spiritual work is the difference between the winners and the losers in the game of life. Joseph spent 13 years in prison before he became the source of abundance and power in Egypt. Today, embrace the process and see the Light in the fact that you have not already arrived.
Day 40, May 18-19, 2020
Today is the energy of Humility in Bonding. Today, be a channel for bringing people together. Helping others in their relationships will foster an improvement in your own.
Day 41, May 19-20, 2020
Today is the energy of Bonding in Bonding. When we worry only about ourselves, the Creator can't come in. Today be a channel of sustenance or abundance for someone else.
Day 42, May 20-21, 2020
Today is the energy of Nobility in Bonding. Today, live in the consciousness of abundance. I don't mean go and spend money you don't have, rather focus on seeing the outpouring in what you do. If you are very smart, that is abundance. If you have healing hands, that is abundance. If you are given the gift of gab, that too is abundance.
