Interestingly, at last week’s 43rd World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, a panel of experts got together for a discussion called “The Mindful Leader,” where they explored the importance of mindfulness to successful leadership in business. It’s not particularly surprising that mindfulness is a hot topic now, not only among these leaders but also in business management schools around the world. The truth is that with all of the distractions, doubts, fears, and responsibilities we are constantly encountering, it can be very difficult to be “present” in our daily lives. It says in the Bible that when the Israelites were in the desert, they were given food one day at a time. The manna fell from the sky every day, so they didn’t have to—indeed; they could not—create a stockpile of food. One of the messages for us in this story is that “today” is the only day that counts. As a matter of fact, if we really think about it, there is no such thing right now as “tomorrow.” If we are not... Read More
Kabbalistically, this is a very powerful week because it is the week when the 72 Names of God were revealed to mankind. For those of you who are new to Kabbalah, let me explain that the 72 Names are 72 three-letter combinations of Hebrew letters, each combination carrying a certain energy that can help us in our lives. Kabbalists meditate with these names to connect with the divine essence within and to help them change and uproot those inner aspects of themselves that are negative, limiting, or selfish. For us, these letter-combinations help us to change at the seed level—the level of consciousness. With all that is going on in the world right now, the Name that will be especially powerful for all of us to focus on together this week is Hei Hei Ayin, the Name for unconditional love. Right now, more than ever, we need to remember that we all contain sparks of the same Light and we are all here for the same collective purpose: to reveal positivity in a world of chaos. This is our job... Read More

There was an article last week in the Huffington Post celebrating folks who had achieved their weight-loss goals. One woman, in particular, named Kendra was a full-time mother and employee who had a hard time eating and exercising while maintaining her busy schedule. Eventually, her high blood pressure and physical pain brought her to the point where her doctor told her that her life was in danger due to her obesity. At that point, she made her health a priority and managed to turn around her situation completely, ultimately losing 86 pounds. I mention this story because it is very clear that if we want to change something in the physical world, we need to make an effort and be willing to face the challenges, even when they appear insurmountable. The problem is that oftentimes we don’t understand spirituality in the same vein as we understand physicality. For example, there are expressions that we use all the time about physical fitness, such as “no pain no gain,” “get out there and... Read More
The year 2013 is upon us, and as we stand at the threshold of this brand new year, brimming with opportunities and the potential for positive change, many of us make resolutions to improve our lives. Whatever it is that we want to transform, here are a few tips that can help us navigate the challenges that we will inevitably encounter when we set out on our paths. 1. Everything in our lives, whether good or bad, is a piece of our individual soul’s puzzle. As I elaborate on in my new book, To Be Continued: Reincarnation and the Purpose of Our Lives, everything that happens in our lives contains lessons for us. Once we are aware that this is the situation, we can and should also understand this: “If my boss fires me or my girlfriend breaks up with me, then there is something I need to learn. I may need to improve the way I’m doing things, or perhaps the situation itself is just making me a better person. One thing is for sure—it has come to help me.” 2. We are here to become leaders in... 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.
