2018 Omer Calendar

Day 2. Gevurah sheh b’Chessed. “A person should always draw people closer by means of the right hand, and push them aside with the left hand.” (Talmud Sotah 47) Please take a few minutes to imagine yourself in a divine experience of loving kindness wrapping around any overdrive or excess boundaries re an issue, person or project. 

Journal or draw/paint/sculpt your sense of this combination--or dance or play on a favorite instrument this sense of this, whatever way helps you to deepen and save this sense within your life today.

Day 3. Tiferet sheh b’Chessed. “Tiferet manifests the peace that results from unity despite divergent approaches.”--Breslov.org. Please take a few minutes to imagine yourself in balance/harmony. Now for a few minutes more allow your balanced self to be wrapped loving kindness. 

Journal or draw/paint/sculpt your sense of this combination--or dance or play on a favorite instrument this sense of this, whatever way helps you to deepen and save this sense within your life today.

Day 4. Netzach sheh b’Chessed. “The prophets were rooted in Netzach and Hod.”—Zohar. While Hod (pronounced hoed), Incubation, is tomorrow's attribute, sephirah, for these 49 days to receiving/ perceiving Torah, the Tree of Life, for now, please take a few minutes to imagine yourself having the determination and drive--netzach, to move a vision for action that you have been having forward towards realization. Next wrap this determination with lovingkindness and be with that combination of determination and drive wrapped with loving kindness for awhile.

Journal or draw/paint/sculpt your sense of this, or dance or play on a favorite instrument this sense of these two sephirot, attributes of the Tree of Life. Or, whatever way heps to place this sense into your spiritual treasure box for today.
