ספירת העומר

Kabbalistic Sephirat HaOmer day 43, 6 weeks, and 1 day of the Omer ~ Chesed sh b'Malchut

Loving-Kindness Fully Flows

Chesed/Giving and Receiving of self flowing, manifesting into Allness and Aliveness, Presence.
For HaShem ~ being fully engaged in life, in joy, meeting in Malchut, Makom/place of Light.

How this day, my birthday, has been with giving and receiving in Chesed/Lovingkindness.
In joy, I love to manifest and have the sounds, loving & caring, resonate in our worlds where G*d is present and meets us.

G*D is heart. 
The flow begins from Keter through G*d’s wisdom and understanding to us ~ 
created in G*d’s image / b’Tzelem Elokim. 

The beginning of the last Counting of the Omer week, week 7.
And then we reach Shavuot on the 50th day!

Lovingkindness Flows Fully Through Tree of Life

May the refinement work of cosmic cleansing that I do on myself during the 49 days of Kabbalistically Counting the Sephirat HaOmer help me to mamash/truly be who I am, and need to become. I desire to delete klipot/husks (negative influences) and again ready myself for Shavuot by strengthening, elevating and perfecting my midot/character traits.  

Because we are created in the Image of G*d / B'Tzelem Elokin, we flow with Tree of Life lower 7 Sephirotic human behavior characteristics that include: Chesed/loving-kindness, love, abunDance. Gevurah/strength, restraint, boundaries, limits, awe, judgment, severity, discipline. Tiferet/beauty, compassion, harmony, balance, heart, love.  Netzach/endurance, perseverance, ambition, drive, victory. Hod/humility, splendor, gratitude. Yesod/foundation, bonding, relationship, creativity, fertility, lineage, ancestors, descendents, and Malchut/sovereignty, leadership and Shechinah/Indwelling Feminine Presence.
