Lesson Highlights

  • A teaching from the Zohar, portion Naso, verse 44 for accessing a life of only blessings
  • Knowing that the totality of Light that we need has been prepared for us each day
  • Getting around the fence of protection: scorpions and snakes protecting the blessings that are meant for us
  • Washing our hands: purifying our consciousness to keep from viewing our accomplishments as coming from our own abilities
  • Living the paradox of being poor and wealthy at the same time
  • Fully embracing any lack and lacking nothing

Lesson Description

Kabbalists teach that great Light and blessings are prepared for us every day but in order to access them we must first get around a fence of protection. Join Michael as he reveals how living the paradoxical reality of being both poor and wealthy in the same moment can unlock the fence of protection and allow access to the greatest blessings meant for us.

About This Course

One of the major spiritual connections kabbalists make on the Sabbath is the reading of a weekly Bible portion. These consciousness lectures present lessons on each week's portion to elevate our consciousness and create awareness of the spiritual energy and gifts that are available through the reading of a Torah Scroll. With greater awareness and an awakened consciousness, we can connect to the Light revealed each week and use it as support in our ongoing spiritual work.
