The past 6 weeks we have learned about Chesed (Mercy), Gevurah (Judgment), Tiferet (Beauty), Netzach (Victory), Hod (Majesty), and Yesod (Foundation). We are now in week 7 of The Omer Count and this week's energy is about understanding and owning up to why we are here on earth.
It's about owning up to our strength within.
My spiritual teacher Karen Berg explained it best by stating that while all the other levels discussed during this Omer are concealed from the 5 senses, Malchut is actually the physical world that we live in. It is everything that is manifested. The purpose of Creation, the transformation of potential to actual, the exposure of the hidden, and materialization of the immaterial are all contained in this level of existence. All of humanity descended from Adam, and in each generation we are correcting a different aspect of him. The souls of earlier generations were greater and on a higher spiritual level than those of our current generation. For that reason, those earlier generations were collectively responsible for correcting Adam's head, neck, heart and so forth. The generation that we are living in is the generation appointed to correct the heel of Adam. The heel correlates with the Sefira of Malchut because it is the lowest point of the body, just as Malchut is the lowest of Ten Sefirot.
The news today is full of chaos: natural and unnatural turmoil, fights, wars and violations of human rights and dignity. All of this is part of the dirt of the heel, the garbage of the Earth, and we, fortunately or sometimes unfortunately, are the garbage sweepers. Our job is to make these difficult corrections because we are the souls that are incarnated here on Earth at this time, we are the ones who are responsible to do this work. Every time we manage to take responsibility and correct something within ourselves, we are doing this work of the heel, impacting the whole of Creation. Karen Berg suggests that this week, the final week of the Omer, as you face whatever it is that is before you, remember that our role as individuals is to take part of our being that needs healing and through our spiritual effort and transformation bring it into wholeness, returning to oneness with our true and Eternal Source.
This week we have true potential to see what we are being exposed to spirituality so we can correct and heal ourselves. The action we take in healing ourselves effects the rest of the planet as a whole.
The first 5 weeks of Omer count were connected to our 5 senses, how we feel, react, forgive, etc and week 6 was about bonding all 5 weeks together and sharing them. Now this week it's complete foundation of all 6 weeks coming in to surface to represent who we are and where we are.
This week is about leadership. The state of being rather than activity. Leadership is a passive expression of human dignity which has nothing of its own except that which it receives from the other 6 emotions.
At the same time, Malchut manifests and actualizes the character of the human spirit. It is the very fiber of what makes us human. Why we love the way we love. Malchut is the sense of belonging. Knowing that you matter and that you make a difference. That you have the ability to be a powerful leader in your own right. It gives you the independence and confidence and the feeling of certainty and authority.
When you are in a healthy state of sovereignty and connected to the higher portion of Malchut you are always kind and loving. A powerful and effective leader needs to be warm and considerate. So make sure you are applying that towards yourself and mostly towards others.
This week's energy is connected to the Root Chakra.
The root chakra is the first chakra and is located at the base of the spine, the pelvic floor. It is the root of your being and establishes the deepest connections with your physical body, your environment and the Earth. It's how you survive. No coincidence that it's connected to Malchut, the heel of Adam.
The root chakra is connected to safety, instinct, sexual being, survival, grounding, family, boundaries, security and new opportunities/new beginnings.
If your root chakra is blocked, you will experience relationships issues, trust issues, feel insecure with work, money, and fear of being stuck in one place.
Mediate with the color red around your base of the spine in order to unblock the root chakra or heal any physical issues you may be experiencing like reproductive system, rectum, tailbone, leg, and even lower sex drive.
The planets connected with the root chakra are Mars and Earth. The signs that represent this chakra are the fire signs: Aries, Leo and Sagittarius.
Consciousness for Week 7 by Karen Berg:
Day 43, June 4-5, 2016
Today is the energy of Loving-Kindness in Nobility. Like King David - who represents Malchut - a true King knows his job is to be in service of others not the other way around. Today, manifest your consciousness of service to others with actions.
Day 44, June 5-6, 2016
Today is the energy of Discipline in Nobility. Before telling anyone what you think of them consider three things:
1. Is your criticism true? 2. Do you love the other person genuinely? 3. Will they hear you?
If you can meet these conditions, then speak up. If not then it is better to be silent.
Day 45, June 6-7, 2016 - New Moon of Gemini
Today is the energy of Compassion in Nobility. Jacob was considered one of the most complete beings that walked this earth. He knew when to be merciful and when to apply judgment. Check yourself today - are you delicate when you should be definite or judgmental when you should be gentle? Don't forget that tonight is the New Moon of Gemini. Chodesh Tov (Good Month)!
Day 46, June 7-8, 2016 - New Moon of Gemini
Today is the energy of Endurance in Nobility. Instead of feeling doubt when something "negative" happens, say to yourself, "I know I have done all I can to make this a positive experience. I have certainty that in the bigger picture this situation is positive." When you do this, you give darkness no entry into the situation.
Day 47, June 8-9, 2016
Today is the energy of Humility in Nobility. Take inventory of the past 46 days. Hindsight is 20/20. Do you see the blessings and the growth? As we come to the end of this Omer, use this day to appreciate the ladder the Creator gave us to climb towards him.
Day 48, June 9-10,2016
Today is the energy of Bonding in Nobility. Joseph took responsibility for his process. To be a conduit of Light for others, there is no room for victim consciousness. Wash yourself clean of the injustices you feel others have done to you so you can jump into the bright future that awaits you. We're almost there guys!
Day 49, June 10-11, 2016
Today is the energy of Nobility in Nobility. Take a moment and meditate on manifesting all the changes that you have undergone in the last 49 days. After Pesach, the Light that we received as a gift went into concealment to give us a chance to earn it back. On the eve before Shavout, seal in your transformation. You are a new vessel, prepared to receive the Light of immortality; are you ready?
May you all have a powerful week filled with forgiveness, sharing, healing and happiness. This is a powerful week to truly dig deep within yourself and connect to the leader that you are. The best leaders know how to find chaos in their life, take responsibility for their part, transform themselves and heal from it. Make sure this week you take time to be honest with yourself in where you need healing and put in the effort to transform it. This week you are releasing your soul from fear and negativity. Let it all go! You are not a victim. You are a powerful being. Let yourself thrive in the light you own and is waiting to shine bright like a diamond! Never ever give up on this journey or in yourself. Miracles do happen and you will always arrive at your desired destination. You just have to BELIEVE!!!!!!!
Mantra: "I AM LOVE, I AM LIGHT, I AM ONE" .... LOVE you all!!!
Week 7 is over Saturday at sundown.
