Kabbalistic Sephirat HaOmer - day 6 Two Sisters Bonding in Love
- Joy Krauthammer
My sister and I spoke at length tonight during the energies of Yesod sh b'Chesed, and I feel we bonded more deeply, while we spoke about our interests both from when we were children and now as adults, finding similarities. Quiet and active Meditation was one topic, and portals and painting with our souls, another, as well as the very ocassional TV we watch which includes the same program. My sister encouraged me, joyous for me with successes I've experienced this week. (No violence for us.)
I am grateful that she, too, is going forward with her creativity. This bonding bears love, support, and appreciation for each other. We counted the Omer. We live in separate cities and rarely see each other. We experience Chesed toward each other, unless times are emotionally difficult. Bonding tonight in Chesed is healing for me, for the times between us that have not been easy.
My sister, like me, grew up without a Jewish education, although we experienced Seders in our home. I am so grateful that my older sister went to two Seders. It must have been strange being at a totally Russian-led Seder, where Haggadahs are not even used, but the leader does it all himself in Russian. I'm grateful the Russians again invited my sister.
