Posts tagged Kabbalistic Healing Tools
My overall goal right now is to gather all my many tools into a new collection. But I have over thirty booklets right now, meaning material I’ve already written. So it’s a massive undertaking.
I have tools and meditations and teachings all over the place. So, with my desire to be more organized, I’m going to focus on one topic and provide ideas on it here.
The first topic I’ve chosen is Kabbalistic Healing. And first I’d like to explain what that term means.
But even before that explanation, let’s look at what I mean when I say, “Tools,” and then more specifically, “Kabbalistic Healing Tools.” A tool is a means, a vessel for conveying an idea, a principle or insight that can have significant influence.
A tool is a method for taking wisdom and internalizing or conveying that wisdom in a beneficial and a practical way.
This idea really interests me because the whole idea of wisdom is not to leave it alone its pristine roots, but to take wisdom and not only articulate it but to internalize it.
So, that’s what I mean when I say, “Tool.”
In order to understand the idea of Kabbalistic Healing Tools we first need to understand the Kabbalistic Perspective. We have to ask and then understand, “How does a Kabbalist see the world?”
Kabbalah means two different things in Hebrew: “to receive” (from Kabel) and “correspondence” (from Machbil).
A Kabbalist sees the world by being in a state of receptivity, by being able to receive that which others do not receive. A Kabbalist has hyper-reception, super-reception of all that is subtle and normally not felt with the conscious mind.
That’s one way the Kabbalist sees and perceives the world. And that’s where we start. We can transform this perception into a group of healing tools. We can use them to heal the way we receive reality, people, conversations and Divine Providence.
And that’s one aspect of Kabbalistic Healing based on receiving.
Then there is the other aspect of Kabbalistic Healing based on correspondence, or the ability to multi-task by seeing and hearing many different things on many different levels at the same time.
A Kabbalistic has the ability to focus on one aspect of what’s going on, and also to understand that simultaneously there is an upper world and an outer world, there is a past and a future, there are souls living in this world and souls no longer living in this world. There are angels, there are forces, there are times, there are sparks, and there are many, many different types of influences offered in every moment of life.
This is the reality seen through the eyes of a Kabbalist.
In order to transform that layered perception into healing we need to train ourselves with practical tools, so that we have various ways of internalizing this idea.
We want to be able to multi-task our own reception and reception so that we can see and hear more than one thing at the same time. That way we can grasp more of reality.
Another way Kabbalists see the world is based on their connection to G-d. They “infinitize” everything they experience, so to speak. They know that the Creator is infinite, and that this world is a way to bridge the infinite with the finite. Almost every teaching in Kabbalah makes that connection, makes that bridge, which is true in all of Judaism as well.
So, to be able to take those aspects of our lives that are blocked, for example, and infinitize them, expand them and bring G-d’s influence into them is yet another way a Kabbalist perceives the world. It is one way a Kabbalist heals the world.
Our Healing Tools need to provide that type of influence as well, taking that which is finite and infinitizing it.
Another aspect of the Kabbalistic perception of healing is this – A Kabbalist is someone who is bringing abundance down into the world. He understands that there is a tighter, a “higher” world of interpersonal dynamics.
Just as we have dynamics between different family members going on in this world, in parallel dimensions and worlds there are family dynamics working as well.
A Kabbalist has access to not only what’s going on in this world, but in other worlds as well, in the entirety of existence. A Kabbalist knows that everything “out there” is also “in here.”
Therefore, a Kabbalist will seek to bring down these higher-world influences in order to heal the blocked aspects of our lives where we are stuck down here. So that is another aspect of the way a Kabbalist sees and perceives – bringing down the Shefa, the abundance into this world, to truly heal that which is stuck.
Undoubtedly there are many, many other dimensions and perceptions and healing modalities available to a Kabbalist, but these are the ones coming to me right now.
Kabbalists realize that what they learn about the way G-d is functioning in the world is something meant to be emulated in our own world. When we see how G-d works a process with Divine Providence or Divine governing of the world with His will, Kabbalists see and recognize the ways of G-d. They know we are to emulate His ways in our own world. This brings us closer to G-d.
Everything that Kabbalists learn in their perception of the worlds is a key to how we live our own lives, in our own world. It’s not only a key, but a Master Template. That Template includes everything they learn in Kabbalah, whether it’s the Seferot, the Rectification of the World, the whole understanding of lights and vessels and male and female and family dynamics…. Everything in Kabbalah holds a key to healing in our world as well.
This is my introduction to Kabbalistic Healing.
