Day 26 - Hod Sh’b Netzach: Gratitude within Eternity

Today is the twenty-sixth day of the Omer.

Hod Sh’b Netzach: Gratitude within Eternity


We open to whatever is unfolding in our lives and reach for gratitude.

Gratitude helps lift us beyond our own pain, fears and doubt.

Gratitude helps us find the strength to stand in the moment

and discern the path forward.


Practice for today:

Give thanks before you eat.

Say thank you when you see something beautiful,

when you experience a moment of connection.

Give thanks for all this day brings

and notice how gratitude feels in your body.


I will see the world through eyes of love and generosity,

and walk in the truths they reveal.

I will give voice to my gratitude, and speak about the wonders I behold.

(Psalm 26:3,7)


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 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.
