We are in a time of new beginnings. Kids (and parents) are in back-to-school mode, and many of us in one way or another are starting a new chapter in our lives as we move into autumn. According to the kabbalists, just as the seasons never stop turning and time continually moves forward, so it is with our consciousness. The physical world we live in is known to the kabbalists as Malchut, and in this world, there is no neutral territory. Our spiritual work does not have a pause button. At every moment, we are either moving closer to positivity or closer to negativity, closer to our potential or further away from it. And while we can clearly see how to move forward from one grade to the next in school, or from one task to the next at work, it is often not so clear or easy for us to move forward in our spiritual work. To move forward spiritually means that we often have to make choices that allow us to transcend and control physicality by striving for something higher—the spiritual energy... Read More

Welcome to the month of Virgo, a powerful month in which the universe affords us the opportunity to expand our spiritual vision and grow closer to revealing our potential. In order to do so, it is important that we have the consciousness that we need to transform because, of course, we cannot change if we are not aware that there is something to change. So let's start off by asking ourselves this question: Have we ever been in a situation or a relationship where, despite all our efforts to the contrary, all we can seem to do is find things that are wrong with it? This is the energy of the Virgo. People born under the sign of Virgo tend to have a critical eye and are capable of noticing the minutest details. They seek perfection in all things, from style and dress to their life's work. Oftentimes, it can be difficult for a Virgo to accept and appreciate the way things are because they have a constant desire for everything around them to be more and more perfect. The problem here is... Read More
Theodore Roosevelt once said, "Do what you can, with what you have, where you are." Now obviously this is a profound statement when applied to our personal or work life, but really it also holds true for our spiritual mission here on Earth: The mission of perfecting our souls. The truth is that we have been given whatever we have—whatever traits, limitations, or gifts—so that we will be able to change ourselves on the inside. This week's Bible reading in Hebrew is called Va'etchanan, which in English means "to beg." We find Moses pleading with God 515 times to allow him to enter the land of Israel. Why did he need to beg so much just to go to a certain location? With all the miracles he had performed, why did Moses need to beg for this seemingly minor request? After all, if we remember, when Moses' sister Miriam was sick with leprosy, all Moses had to do was say to the Creator, "El na refa na la," which means "Heal her now," and she was healed. How could Moses in one place in the... Read More

In the midst of such chaos in my life, I have been able to find peace through studying Kabbalah. Without any doubts whatsoever, I would highly recommend anyone to call. I am so thankful for The Kabbalah Centre, because it has made all the difference in my spiritual growth and development.

Kabbalah is the best gift I have had this year. But it did not come easy. It is a result of a lot of hard, focused, and disciplined work my teacher guided me through. Often I had to go out of my comfort zone to apply the tools. But the satisfaction and confidence I now feel is indescribable.

Now I look back and question what exactly I did and how I managed without these teachings in my life.
