Through Sefiras Haomer we count 49 days until we reach the culmination of the 50th day known as Shavous. Each week represents one of the 7 Sefiros. The 7 Sefiros represent the Divine energy that is manifest through-out the entire creation. Not only does the world on a macro level contain these spiritual energies, you and I are made up of these 7 Sefiros as well. They are the foundation of which the world was created.
On a personal level, when I was able to have a glimpse of my innate health – not my IQ but through my EQ (emotional quotient), I was led to greater feelings of connectedness, love and good feelings. Understanding that my wellbeing is part of me has allowed me to access my greater higher emotions not only in the difficult times but also has allowed me to feel more present in the mundane parts of life as well.
Being that all of us are made up of these spiritual energies we literally have access to a reservoir of greater emotions and feelings at all moments of our life. There is nothing that needs to be learned or taught. Our emotional wellbeing and positive feelings are already apart of us. It’s the fabric of who we are, it’s what we are made of.
As we count through the days of Sefiras Haomer, let us allow each day of the 49 days to be a reminder of our greater well springs that are already within us.
