Paradise Principle Kabbalistic Healing

Kabbalistic Healing – Part 1 – Unblocking Healing Strategies

I’m going to read from a previous teaching I’ve sent out, and expound on it here, seeking something deeper and more profound than I provided earlier, to get to that essence point in the healing process.

Kabbalistic based recipes for transcendence   [F. A. B. ]

The following healing strategies are drawn from a personal collection—a collection of healing or transcendence approaches gathered over the years…the list is partial [and will always remain that way as long as I continue to explore and collect]….These healing strategies are drawn from Torah based-Kabbalistic sources—most of which draw upon Divine assistance or empowerment.

1. IMPACT TRANSFORMATION HEALING [’..Libi Challal Bkirbi/My heart is void inside of me..’]

Experience the negative emotional impact of your present ‘story’ or ‘life coping recipe’ so vividly, that you have no choice but to throw it away……allow a new healthy recipe to be born —ie…automatically be drawn down from ABOVE to fill the void that’s left in the place of the old recipe’s way of doing things [without you doing virtually any planning at all]….

The secular source of this comes from a landmark forum seminar I personally attended about 10 – 15 years ago.  It involved people seeking to change their consciousness by bringing to mind their “story,” and describing it with such harsh, negative words that they simply decided to let it go entirely.  They just dropped it.

And what was left behind was a void, a space where a whole new recipe for living could come in to fill that void.

This is a very powerful way of healing, of transformation. It’s a Kabblistic way of healing because it duplicates what G-d did when he created the world with the Kabbalistic Tzim-Tzum process.

Originally, there was nothing in the world except G-d. There was G-dliness everywhere and G-d wanted there to be a Creation to join G-d in the world (for whatever reason, which will always remain a mystery to us), and so he first made a void. But nature abhors a void and it must be filled. That’s the power of creating a void. It’s something that, by its nature, demands to be filled.

So, too, whenever we want to tap into any expansion or creation in our lives, to move into something new, we need to start by getting into a void. It may require going into rock-bottom mode, someplace intolerable where there’s no place else to go. That situation creates a void which can bring in a whole, new life.

Naturally, we don’t want to create a desperate situation, but when we’re already in one, we need to know that we’re on the edge of something new coming into the world, into OUR world.  That’s the pattern of life, that descent down to the bottom level is going to produce new life.

That’s the source in the Creation process, creating whole new life, and it’s the source in our emotional life as well. Whether you’re going to bring this about for yourself, as we’re describing here, or whether you’re in a situation where it’s happening TO you or THROUGH you or FOR you…. Never despair.

The void itself is going to give birth to something totally new. This is actually the whole point of the universe. We learn in the Creation story that, “… there was evening, there was morning,” on Day 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, and 7. There was first “evening,” first the void, first the darkness and intolerability, which is what launches the day.

In this transformation healing we are simply tapping into the most primal pattern and energy of life, using the darkness, the void, the intolerability in order to create a whole, new self-transformation.

2. WAITING FOR THE RIGHT TIME HEALING [’…. Ana Atid Lalededt/I will give birth….’]

Experience the negative emotional impact of your present ‘story’ or ‘life coping recipe’ so vividly, that you have no choice but to throw it away……allow a new healthy recipe to be born —ie…automatically be drawn down from ABOVE to fill the void that’s left in the place of the old recipe’s way of doing things [without you doing virtually any planning at all]….

This is an exposition on the holy, Divine word, “Ehyeh,” meaning in Hebrew, “I will be.” It’s a Divine name, one of the proper names of G-d. It represents a look into the future. It’s the name G-d told Moses to tell the Jewish people, the Israelites… Ehyeh would be the one to take them out of Egypt. When they asked, “Who sent you, Moses?” He replied, “Tell them Ehyeh Asher Ehyeh sent you,” which means the future orientation, “I will be what I will be sent you,” indicating that future orientation sent Moses to lead the Israelites out of captivity. “I will give birth,” is giving birth to the future.

Realize that when you are in a constricted mindstate that you are able to wait it out and simply do nothing at all…..rather than jumping in and arguing or making a decision or acting in any other way upon your present instinct—which is based on a corrupt mind state, and will inevitably lead to negative results—–just wait until your mind state will be expanded —and then act….

This is a very, very important healing tool here. We need to know when to shut up, basically. That’s what we’re talking about here. This is a natural rhythm of human consciousness. We get into constricted mind states, corrupted mind states, and worried mind states of one kind or another. When we are in that constricted head space what we need to be doing is this – not doing anything.

Not doing anything at these times will not only prevent us from sticking our foot in our mouth, from making horrible mistakes, from saying something we’re going to regret, from hurting ourselves and other people… but it’s also teaching us the incredible value of patience.

Patience is within the highest Kabbalistic Sefira, which is Belief, which is Emuna. Belief and patience are the same thing. Having Emuna, having Belief is something that you just embrace. You don’t MAKE it happen. It’s not something that you control. You just let go and let G-d, that’s what patience is.

It’s going to be ok. It’s going to work out. Hang in there. Things are going to work out. To have patience you need faith: faith in yourself, faith in life, faith in G-d, faith in the situation… You need trust in all these things.

By doing this you’re not only saving yourself a huge amount of trouble, but you’re also developing the all-important trait of waiting, of patience, of faith.

3. CO-CREATING HEALING [‘…Naase Adam Btzalmeinu/Let us make a human in our image…’]

Declare or create a projected reality—a very different scenario than your present blocked up one….realize that your declaration has the power to manifest—it’s your birthright, being that you are Created in the Image of Hashem, and therefore are given the G-dly power of creating…..with clear and powerful Emuna and intention—watch how Hashem  makes the reality manifest—in His own time and way—possibly with your inspired assistance [if you choose to assist] , but mainly on His own, with you out of the way…..out of His way…..

This is from Bereshit, the first book of Torah. The verse is unique because we would expect it to say, “Let ME (G-d) make a human in MY (G-d’s) image,” but it doesn’t say that. It says, “Let US,” which is G-d and whoever else we are talking about making a human in “OUR” image.

What’s really interesting about this verse, and I’m going to choose it because as I’m speaking today it’s the yartzeit of Rabbi Aryeh Kaplan, an incredible redeemer of so many lost Jewish souls, before his death at an early age. Rabbi Kaplan described this verse as meaning that G-d planted the whole universe, all of Creation inside a human. That’s what “Let’s make man in OUR image,” represents, the image of all of Creation.

Declare or create a projected reality—a very different scenario than your present blocked up one….realize that your declaration has the power to manifest—it’s your birthright, being that you are Created in the Image of Hashem, and therefore are given the G-dly power of creating…..with clear and powerful Emuna and intention—watch how Hashem  makes the reality manifest—in His own time and way—possibly with your inspired assistance [if you choose to assist] , but mainly on His own, with you out of the way…..out of His way…..

The idea here is that G-d created reality, and created us in his image. Of course this doesn’t mean a physical image, which is impossible, but it means a full profile, all that he allows us to see of himself.

So he allows us to create our own reality as well. When we choose to ask G-d to help us create our manifested, desired, projected reality of what we want, with belief we understand that G-d will make that happen. And we do this with strong belief, strong trust and a strong vision where we “see” it into reality.

When we have a pro-active passivity watching it all happen then there are no miracles we cannot co-create. In the way a person wants to go, as it’s said, that is the way G-d will direct him.

When we join G-d’s powers to our own, we create any miracle or desired reality we want in the whole universe, in G-d’s own perfect time.

4.  MICROCOSMIC HEALING [‘..Bishvilli Nivra Haolam/For me, the world was created..’]

Realize that all that you see inside of yourself AND outside of yourself is a reflection of YOU ……your thoughts and history and intentions and much more, figure in to these manifestations—based also on the fact that you are created as a microcosmic being –and all that is outside you, is also inside of you, also as a result of all of us being interconnected and  therefore responsible for each other’s wellbeing…..the more responsibility that you take for all that you encounter as being your own creation [especially that which you feel strongly about—positively or negatively], the more you will be able to heal the situation….take responsibility for what you encounter—as being somehow caused by you and then ‘clean’ or heal the situation by saying I’m sorry, please forgive me, thank you and I love you repeatedly….keep doing this, until you feel peace of mind….afterwards, notice how your healing has shifted reality inside and outside of yourself [****note—part of what I bring here is based on an ancient Hawaiian healing strategy called Hooponopono—but the connections to mystical Judaism are unmistakeable…]

Our Sages teach that this verse says, basically, “YOU, for you the entire world was created… for you, for your own sake.” This is truly a revolutionary way of seeing the world, of seeing life and the whole universe. If you see it that way, you’ll realize that all you encounter was for your benefit.

Realize that all that you see inside of yourself AND outside of yourself is a reflection of YOU ……your thoughts and history and intentions and much more, figure in to these manifestations—based also on the fact that you are created as a microcosmic being –and all that is outside you, is also inside of you, also as a result of all of us being interconnected and  therefore responsible for each other’s wellbeing…..the more responsibility that you take for all that you encounter as being your own creation [especially that which you feel strongly about—positively or negatively], the more you will be able to heal the situation….take responsibility for what you encounter—as being somehow caused by you and then ‘clean’ or heal the situation by saying I’m sorry, please forgive me, thank you and I love you repeatedly….keep doing this, until you feel peace of mind….afterwards, notice how your healing has shifted reality inside and outside of yourself [****note—part of what I bring here is based on an ancient Hawaiian healing strategy called Hooponopono—but the connections to mystical Judaism are unmistakeable…]

Life, meaning everything “out there,” is also inside of me, it’s “in here.”  I just need to 1) believe that, 2) be aware and receive that, and 3) ultimately to activate that.

These are all futuristic yearnings we can begin to strive for. This is a Messianic-type of consciousness, and yet is IS accessible to us. As with any other new thing, practice makes perfect. Be real with it and it will start being real with you.

It’s a huge shift to begin to believe, and that goes for all of us, that what we see outside ourselves is actually 1) co-created, 2) inside of us, and also 3) our own responsibility. We never dreamed that it’s within our power to change and heal. But when we do, we become very, very powerful people. We can change reality in (what seems to be) and unbelievable way.

There’s a lot more to say on this topic, and there’s an entire chapter about it in the book Kabbalah and Consciousness by Allen Afterman.
