In matters of the spirit a little goes a long way.
One of the most puzzling things about Kabbalah has to do with the proportions of worldly to spiritual. It says it is 1%, as opposed to the 99% spiritual. Therefore if you do your job in the 1% reality, then the 99% reality will to its job. It is like putting in $1 to a self improvement fund, and your company would match it with $99. Good deal, isn't it.
It may be a good deal, but very few do it.
Why? Because your mindset has to be certainty, instead of waiting for it to come, or hoping, or wishing, or at the other extreme, thinking that you can only count on yourself. Or strong desire... or hoping... or "faith"... or praying... or all the happy horseshit gurus teach.
This article is evergreen. I wrote it nine years ago... and it still speaks to me... the addictive tendencies will not disappear with time...

... life is all about circuitry. When we share our Light with people who don't want to receive it, it's like trying to fill a bottle when the cap is still on. Try as you might, with all of the love, intention, and desire to share, your energy simply cannot penetrate. And as with our favorite spiritual illustration, the lightbulb, if the negative pole is blocked, the circuit cannot be completed, and the energy cannot flow.
It's not about judging people as worthy or unworthy. It's about discerning who is 'open' to receive, and willing to use what we have to offer - wisdom, love, time, concern - no matter what flavor!
No doubt, if you go through your relationships, in your head, one by one, you are going find several that fit the above description: Your desire to contribute to them is not received with an equal amount of desire to receive from you.
Some people, including myself, more than I am happy to admit, make it our life's purpose to give where it is not appreciated, or even not wanted. But everyone, at one time or another, decides where to give, by their own concepts, instead of looking where there is the most reception.
At the same time, one may fall into the opposite trap, the bottomless pit, or the bottle with the cap off, but cracked. I call that the Black Hole... the other extreme of the No Circuitry sole correction.
I used to have a client (or two, or three, or four... grrr) where we would have great conversations, I would be able to express all the light the Light wanted me to channel, but nothing would stick with the recipient.
This particular client, let's call him Matt, was hungry for solutions, hungry for light, hungry... insatiable. What he wasn't hungry for is making changes in his thinking or in his actions.
My style of coaching is to leave the client with a set of practices or action that they must complete in order for the session to make any real difference. Matt never did any of the actions, any of the practices. Instead, he came to every call as if the previous one had never happened. Unchanged.
He remembered them all right, but remembering is the booby prize... not much value there. His life didn't notice he had that session.
I "fired him" from my practice... after a while.
I noticed that there was a certain co-dependency developing: it gave me a sense of accomplishment and an experience of being very bright to channel the Light. And he came to me the way an alcoholic goes to the pub.
I needed to restrict my addictive tendencies and ask him to get his daily fix someplace else.
Result? I started to channel the Light into my writing, into my business, into my garden, and into my own well-being. All areas were parched... and all those areas are now starting to blossom.
The point? There is an abundance of Light available for you to channel. But channel it to someplace where it can make a difference, someplace where it will cause abundance. OK?
I read the book many years ago. Just after it came out. I had been wondering if it was fiction. The number of websites on the bible codes is high, bad sign. If it were really true, probably no one cared, I reasoned.
Until today. I found a move that is the Kabbalah Centre's take on the bible code. Fascinating. The Bible Codes according to Kabbalah
Regrets, I've had a few ... .How many of us are stuck in ruts because we cling to past slights, traumas, missed opportunities, and betrayals? The best way to let go and move forward is to acknowledge and accept those negative things you did (or had done to you) as steps on the path that brought you to where you need to be today.
Today, recall the pain of your past. Allow yourself to get to the point where you can accept that they were blessings; the perfect things that helped you build a new you. If you can release your grip on the anger, sadness, and regret, then it will be easier to spot the Light in the darkness. (quoted from daily kabbalah tuneup)
Interesting that this would come up just now.
I am working with a client/friend, let's call her DD. She has been doing great. She has gotten in touch with the light in herself and her power to choose.
The first 42 letters of the Torah, (The Old Testament) are powerful tools for creation. Each line of the 7-line prayer consist of 6 letters, and each line has a different energy, removing time between cause and effect, infusing your being with the power of creation, purifying, removing ego, etc.
Yahuda Berg wrote a great book about it, and the flash video explains it and shows how to do it correctly to accomplish what you aim for. click here for the video
I found a movie that explains this. The explanation will surprise you and delight you. It is actually easier to travel between the universes than you thought. You don't need a time machine, and you don't need a rocket that flies faster than light. You have been actually doing it without your knowledge.
Find out what you have been doing, so you can start doing what you have always wanted to do.
Dream 1: I am playing with and fascinated by some colored dots that make a pattern, though moving, still a pattern, building something. At some point the dots suddenly lose color and die, and the fascinating pattern deteriorates to a one color dying, diminishing mess. I wake up. I know it is the message I asked for. My interpretation: don't be fascinated with the ever changing outside world... turn your attention inward where you call all the shots.
Dream 2: I am invited to a conference in France. I haven't been there for over 30 years. I want to go. I go. I just throw some clothes in an overnight bag and go. I am there, and I am having fun. I am ready to come back... I can't. The doors of the US are closed. I am not having fun any more. I have no money, no place to stay. None of my things, including my business, are with me, it was all left in the US. I panic. I wake up. I sob. "I left without as much as a blanket and a pillow..." I cry. I know it is a message. I don't think I have asked for this. But it came, so it is relevant. My interpretation: 1. think before you leap and don't do something if it risks too much. 2. Leap. Build from nothing. that is where the blessing is. How can you do those two things at the same time?
You wave your magic wand, and bada bing bada bang, a little magic dust, and you have a miracle.
Or you take a little pill, and you wake up beautiful, slim, sexy, and rich.
Or you pray that God gives you a miracle
Or you meditate
Or you buy that get-rich-quick scheme that promises overnight money with no work at all
Or you play it over and over in the theater of your mind... You feel it... you appreciate everything... still...
But all these don't cause a miracle.
No matter how skillfully you wave the wand, or how fancy (and expensive) the little pill is, how passionately you pray... etc. etc. etc.
