Did you know that the original letters of the English ‘Alpha-Bet’ come from the Hebrew letters “Aleph” and “Beth”? Each of the letters are considered sacred and have many meanings and numerical equivalents. This alphabet is the basis for many written languages and great care has been taken to keep the proper brush strokes that create the Hebrew letters exactly over these many centuries!

As more people learned to read and write, the sacred mysteries continued to be passed down orally from Master to Student privately. These students had to have been adult men, over 40, who were married property owners. These requirements maintained that the secrets remained safe and unaltered, by wise elders, in order to help generations understand the codes of creation, the function of society, spirituality, and each persons place in the world.

Think of it! This is a secret code, hidden in plain sight, and used daily without awareness by most people, actually as hidden entendres to those who can understand them! 😉 It is exciting to learn that these secrets can be easily applied to your life~ for more ease, understanding and eventually, to gain the wisdom to be able to create a life of your highest aspirations~

Because NOW the wisdom of the Kabbalah, the Hebrew mystery tradition that originated with the pre-Judiac people long ago, can be shared with everyone! Are you ready to learn more??

~Each of the 22 Hebrew letters have esoteric qualities embedded into them. I will explain some of the basic meanings that I use in my metaphysical work with you over the next few months. I will also share some ideas about how you can become more familiar with the power of these spoken letters. Here we go!~

ALEPH is the first of the Hebrew letters.

Aleph – the first, yet unspoken, Hebrew letter tells a story of the creation through the word.

Aleph, when pronounced slowly, consists of the intake of breath and it’s exhalation, ‘ah’.

The tongue touching the front teeth, becomes the second part of this letter, ‘el’.

And the breath exiting the mouth as the sound ‘f’ is created with the lips against the teeth.

A           L          F

There is no need to add the vocal cords to this word. It symbolizes the exhalation of breath with an unspoken thought. This ‘ideation’ was the first step in the creation process.

The movement of AIR from the lungs to the center of the mouth, the roof of the mouth and the front of the mouth, demonstrates the process of sending an idea from within to the world without. This parallels the maxim, “As above, so below. As within, so without”.

Each time you speak, your Ideas, as sparks of thought, come from within your mind and will. When these thoughts are put into Good Orderly Direction, you are using your innate talent as a co-creator with G-d.

*Choose your thoughts and words carefully, because the vibration of the sound of words uttered, creates a frequency force upon the matrix of the web of life. What you think upon, you create, because as attention goes, so energy flows. Words act like boomerangs, they return to us wether we want them to or not!

*Consider this- What do you spend your time doing throughout the day? Hygiene, is taking care of the temple that is your body. Preparing food is similar maintenance of the vehicle you live in. Cleaning and maintaining your body, your home and your workplace are all basic upkeep that allows your body-mind-spirit SELF to function with greater ease. They are good practices. Being PRESENT in the current moment allows you to accomplish more with less effort.

*Do you walk mindfully throughout the day? As you grow older, it becomes more obvious that you need to pay more attention to your movements in the world. Walking can become a meditation that balances the right and left hemispheres in the brain.

*How do you spend your free time? Things you think about are what you worship. Some people worship football, others worship baking, and yet others their pets, their children, their spouse. The things you focus attention upon, are what you worship. What do you worship?

*Do you select entertainment to increase your wisdom and understanding of the world or to KILL TIME? Most tv shows are based in dictated “popular culture” and are based in violence and drama? Why? Because adrenaline sells.

Whatever you take into your psyche becomes part of your SELF. At my home we live by the maxim that ‘Violence is not entertainment!’. Of course, this limits what we watch and participate in, but it adds a sense of peace and calm as our home is an oasis from the frenetic energy of the outside world. There are lots of great shows on Science & the Arts, Music, Song, Dance and romantic comedies have no violence, you just have to be selective in finding them.

*The letter ALEPH, reminds us to engage in practices that bring joy, amusement and awe. AHHH, the sound of Aleph is a helpful way to remind yourself of what you are grateful for in your life. Gratitude adds a lot to the quality of life, so practice it often. Namaste’ ~K

Healers Overcoming Rejection

“When you feel connected to everything, you also feel responsible for everything.” –Andrew Boyd

When you see the pain in the world you may want to ease it. It may grieve you terribly to see it- and you may even feel it within your Body and Soul. You may feel it is your responsibility to erase it or ease it. We must do what we can, but we must also be ready to acknowledge what is ours and what is not ours. There are boundaries to our energy and unfortunately, who we can help. Some people choose not to heal.

You may find it hard to turn away because you know your destiny is bound with the destiny of others. You have crossed paths for a reason. We are here to teach each other life lessons. And when we reach out to others and they refuse to take our hand, it’s confusing and hurtful.

Don’t take their rejection personally. You are only responsible for your Self. You must allow others to take responsibility for themselves. It empowers them to do so and to claim it as their own.

You must grow strong enough to realize that everyone walks their path at their own pace. Although you’d like to reach out and hold their hand and walk with you, where you are~ Not everyone is ready for that.

If you look ahead and see others ahead of you on the path you may want to be with them. That also hurts. You must hold compassion for yourself and honor your march as your own. Believe in your journey and keep moving to your own music.

Keep shining brightly. Be the light in the darkness, so that others who catch a glimpse of your love and light have a direction to follow.

We are ALL headed to the same light.

We will ALL get there, eventually.

We learn as much as our souls can handle in this life. At our own pace and timing.

It may take a few more lives to master.

But know this….. You are loved…… You are part of God.

You WILL find your way home.

Namaste’

Shadow work Oct 5-Nov 15, 2018

The Shadow is the ‘unclaimed’ part of our psyche that is alert and aware 24/7 because it resides in our Subconscious Mind. As children, we are programmed into our view of the World; it’s language, customs and our place in it. As adults, we can reflect on these programs and become “Aware” of them.

If you start to feel like a victim of your programs, stuck in a rut, without possibilities, I want to tell you that you can change ANYTHING, at ANY TIME!

If you’re interested in doing Shadow work, investigating this phenomenon via inward reflections, let me know.  Send me your Email request at KalinArtAndSpirit@gmail.com and I’ll send you the password. (Passwords keep out bots)

Thanks!
