Lesson Highlights

The Four Phases:

  • Stage One: Having a passive desire for the blessings in our life that do not require any effort
  • Stage Two: A desire is awakened in us to give of ourselves and put in effort that does not come naturally
  • Stage Three: A feeling of lack and void that triggers true motivation
  • Stage Four: Craving, yearning and appreciating the blessings we had in Stage One and allowing true fulfillment in our life

Lesson Description

Kabbalists teach that building a true desire and craving from within brings lasting fulfillment to all aspects of our life.  We build this desire in four stages which the kabbalists call, “The Four Phases”. This process proactively builds our desire, appreciation and motivates us without chaos. The Four Phases ultimately enable us to draw endless blessings in every area of our life.

About This Course

The Zohar is not only a book of wisdom, but also a book of Light. Kabbalists teach that connecting with the Zohar as a spiritual tool reveals this Divine Light, called the Concealed Light or Or HaGanuz in our lives and in the world. Just as when a candle is lit in a dark room, the darkness disappears, so to does the shining of the Light of the Creator that is embodied in every word of the Zohar remove darkness from our lives.There are different levels of connecting with the Zohar including owning it, scanning or reading the ancient Aramaic text and study. Getting Zohar provides you with short teachings to awaken your consciousness and assist you in taking action to create change and transformation in your life.
