Day 43 - Chesed Sh’b Malchut: Love within Divine Presence
Love that flows through us into the world
Today we let our thoughts dwell on the experiences of the heart.
Practice for today:
We ask ourselves:
In what situations do I feel generous and loving?
When do I feel myself closing down and turning away?
Who has loved me well? To whom have I opened my heart?
Send forth Divine light and truth, they will guide me and bring me to the holy mountain, to where the Sacred Presence dwells.
There I will come toward the Mystery in gladness and joy and give thanks.
- Rabbi Yael Levy
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 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. 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.
