Kabbalah Tune Up: Where There's Smoke, There's Fire - by Yehuda

There are days during the year that allow us to elevate above our short-circuiting world of chaos, to tap into a higher level of circuitry. These next eight days [April 19 — 27] - the holiday of Pesach - are such days. At this time we receive spiritual support from the universe that assists us in creating a stronger circuitry in the quality of our life. The meaning of Pesach is that every year on the 15th day of the month of Aries in the lunar calendar, we're supposed to celebrate Pesach by having a special dinner — without bread or anything leavened — while reciting stories from a book that is a remembrance of leaving Egypt, of redemption, and of our enemies some 3,400 years ago. That's what this holiday's all about. But, Kabbalistically, there's a powerful opportunity to transform and change our life for one year and forever. It is not about remembering what happened in the past. It's about remembering what's happening now — and knowing how to tap into that energy. We can remove ourselves from the chains of repetitive patterns of wrong relationships, fears, pains, uncontrollable thoughts that drive us crazy, laziness and lack of energy and enthusiasm. We can remove ourselves from our own personal Egypt. What does your Egypt look like? Where are your hot buttons? What are your insecurities? How do you doubt yourself? Pay attention. When someone says something that ticks you off, don't shoot the messenger. Explore why the comment provoked such a strong emotional reaction in the first place. Is there some grain of truth there? Where there's smoke, there's fire. Ask yourself, "Why did that comment make me feel so mad [sad, defensive, hurt, judged, or attacked]? These next seven days, expose your weak areas, your vulnerable "I don't want to talk about it' spots. What can you do to make it different? The gates are open this week. Leave behind all that's ruling you. Put in the extra effort to look within. You just may get the key to opening those gates for the rest of the year.

All the best,
