Day 20 - Yesod Sh’b Tiferet: Connection within the Heart

Today is the twentieth day of the Omer.

Yesod Sh’b Tiferet: Connection within the Heart

 

The Mystery brings transformation.

The One answers us in the moment we call.

(Psalm 20:10)

 

The wellspring rises from deep within the Mystery, filling the heart

with truths. Sometimes these truths are welcome and easy to contain,

sometimes they are painful and cause a shattering.

 

There is great strength to be found in opening to whatever is coming

forth.

 

Practice for today:

We ask ourselves:

What am I meant to learn, to discover?

What truths do I need to integrate?

We pray for ourselves and nine others:

 

May my (our) gifts be remembered.

May my (our) offerings be received.

May my (our) heart’s yearning be granted.

May my (our) clearest intentions be fulfilled.

(Psalm 20:4-5)

 

The Omer teachings you see here and can receive as nightly email reminders by signing up for our mailing list, are taken from Rabbi Yael Levy's Omer guide, Journey through the Wilderness, which is available as a whole in print or as an ebook.

Please feel free to join us via call-in for live Thursday morning 8-8:30 AM Omer-themed Meditation Sits with Rabbi Yael Levy, or listen to a recording of the Sit posted on Facebook and our Web site soon afterward.

The daily teachings started on Tuesday, April 11 and continue to Shavuot, May 29. A Way In also invites you to join us for our annual retreat in the high desert of New Mexico for the last days of the Counting.

The practice as well as Rabbi Yael were featured recently on the Chai Haven Show on New Haven Independent radio, as well as in a 2015 New York Times article.

Each week of the Omer is associated with one of seven sefirot, manifestations of Divine attributes, that the Kabbalists associated with each week between Pesach and Shavuot.

As part of your Omer practice, please consider making a donation in conjunction with a week of the Omer (and its attribute) that resonates for you. If you wish to make a gift in honor or in memory of someone, we will let them know of your gift with an inspirational card.
