Keep a Beautiful Garden

Keep a Beautiful Garden

“Our children are our garden. They absorb our stress, just as they absorb our peace. They absorb our negativity just as they absorb our joy. And we have the power to control what they absorb, but first, we must tend to ourselves. How people treat you is their destiny and how you react is your children’s destiny.” -Rivka Sari 2019 Photo by Rivka Sari Photography by Rivka Sari Copyright (C) 2019 Please like &...
Guard Your Words

Guard Your Words

G-d is not everywhere he is where we let him in. He will not force His presence in your life. The invitation is by your prayers and blessings and accepting his Torah and Mitzvos. This is what it means to have G-d in your Life. A blessing is experiencing G-d’s will and a curse is experiencing G-d’s blessing out of balance of his will. Reyach breathe in Ruach breathe out Breath is the life force of the Body. Every time you take a breath you are connecting your Nefesh (living soul) with your Neshama (spiritual soul)  that is the divine essence of G-d our Creator. Do you feel His presence? Reyach breathe in Ruach breathe out Your very breath is an invitation to G-d to be present for without G-d you cannot breathe  Carefully chose your word wisely. Do NOT speak without knowing the facts when you decide to speak against anyone. For what you are speaking,  if it is untrue in the slightest you will be speaking the very judgment upon yourself, you have cursed yourself.  Do you want to risk it? Do your words invite G-d’s Holy presence and blessing or shut out G-d in your life and His blessings for you can only be experienced as a curse. Reyach breathe in Ruach breathe out (Copyright Excerpt from New book “Heaven Scent the Sweet Sense of Divine Smell” coming soon 2019) Please like &...

What You Think You Become.

  In the Torah, it says, we are taught to seek the Kingdom of heaven within, because when you connect to G-d through prayer, when you connect to the divine perfection our Creator, you can live in a place of abundance. You’re happy for no reason. You’re excited about life. You recognize the beauty and the abundance and prosperity of blessings. You’re in a place of having in essence. You are connected to Spirit. You already have what you want, therefore more will be given to you. It becomes easier to believe and create the things that G-d wants in your life, to the energy field of the universe. Proverbs 23:7 “For as a man thinks in his heart so is he… “ כי כמו שער בנפשו כן הוא The words for think here mean something more than the obvious. Shaghar/ שער = entrance, gateway, The after effects of prayer and meditation. In his heart or deep within his soul his living being / בנפשו – From the word נפש living soul. In Leviticus 17:11 says that the very life of the flesh is in the blood, but also can be understood as what has been concealed is in the Living soul of man Nefesh / נפש. So, the better translation could be this: “For as a man opens up the gateway doors of his soul, so is he… “What you think upon and then meditate on the most is what you become or are. So let your imagination go in the Torah of G-d and then conceal it within your soul make it manifest in your life according...
Holy Smokes! Incense is a Higher Ground of Medicinal & Original Aromatherapy?

Holy Smokes! Incense is a Higher Ground of Medicinal & Original Aromatherapy?

The ‘ketoret’ is the incense described in the Bible for use in the Holy Temple. Its composition and usage is described in greater detail in midrash, the Talmud and subsequent rabbinic literature. Although it was not produced following the destruction of the Second Temple in 70 CE, some Jews study the composition of the ancient Temple incense for future use in a restored Temple as part of daily Jewish services. Contemporary Judaism still uses aromatic spices in one ritual, the havdala) ceremony ending the Sabbath. In addition, there is a blessing for pleasant smells. Most Incense can be used for Aromatherapy medicinal purposes. Some people like to make into a ritualistic experience, but in Jewish tradition this is forbidden when burning incense because of the ketoret incense was and is the only ritual burning of incense allowed. Since our Temple does not stand we can no longer burn ketoret. But much of it’s ingredients like frankincense, myrrh, cassia etc can be used for healing purposes only. Incense can purify a space from germs. The burning of incense, use of essential oils, or inhaling of nature’s aromas outdoors was one of the original natural “treatments,” helping to keep humans in balance on many different levels since the beginning of time. It just goes to show that as we continue on the path of technological advancement of our planet, modern medicine, and further disconnection from G-d’s creation of nature, society ultimately relies more and more on man-made drugs and chemicals to make up for the lack of awareness of, the organic medicines that their ancestors received from spending time in nature...

Emotional Health and Your Body’s Temple

Jewish Sage Maimonides Medical Writings tells is that King Solomon shared these secrets of great health. Physical health cannot be addressed without the addressing emotional and spiritual issues also. Rabeinu Moses Ben Maimon who was a great Torah scholar and physician in the 15th Century says the whole person must be treated. He sat out to uphold Torah divine dictum which is the gold standard of maintaining good health, preservation of life and healing the whole body and soul. G-d gave Traditional Torah (Bible) Medicine and Aromatherapy, which has been practiced for more than five thousand years, has a central principle that Maimonides classifies five major organ systems that are each associated with particular emotions. The five major organ systems involve pairs of organs and an associated emotion. The liver and gallbladder are associated with anger, the heart and small intestine are associated with joy that can cause palpitations and restlessness, the spleen and stomach are associated with over-thinking, negative thinking, or pensiveness that can lead to depression that can lead to digestive issues, the lungs and large intestine are associated with grief which cause causes breathing and raspatory issues, and the kidney and bladder are associated with fear and deep seeded anger that cause kidney stones and other severe dysfunction. Emotional health is an integral part of the Torah (Bible) medicine and aromatherapy focuses on the relationship between emotions and organs and their effect on health. Joy Joy is an emotion of deep contentment and is connected to the heart. When a person becomes overexcited with joy, she can experience agitation, insomnia, fever and heart palpitations. Joy is...
The King is in the Field. Come take a stroll with him in the Garden?

The King is in the Field. Come take a stroll with him in the Garden?

Happy Chodesh Elul! The King is in the Field. Come take a stroll with him in the Garden? The month of Elul, last month of the Hebrew calendar year, is an auspicious time for repentance, prayer and introspection. These are special days of Divine good will and mercy, and the very essence of these days bespeak the basic human need for closeness with the Holy One, blessed be He… and His immediate and unequivocal response. The word Elul in Hebrew is actually an acronym, an abbreviation of the Hebrew words Ani l’dodi v’dodi li, “I am my beloved’s and my beloved is mine” (Song of Songs 6:3). This verse from the Song of Songs is actually the theme of this very special month: realizing how beloved we are to G-d, and how precious our relationship with Him is. Elul reminds us that G-d constantly beckons us to return to Him. During this month, we seek to improve our relationship with G-d and with each other. Before A king enters a city, it’s inhabitants go out to greet him and receive him in the field. At that time, anyone who desires may approach and greet him. He …receives them all pleasantly and shows a smiling countenance to all. As he proceeds to the city, they follow him. Afterwards, when he reaches his royal palace, one may see the king only with permission, and this is only granted only to the nation’s elite who are a select few. (From the Maamer Ani Lidodi V’dodi Li of the Alter Rebbe) The month of Elul is a joyous time where Hashem has made...
