Living a Better Life in Times of Chaos
Is your life full of chaos?
Challenges such as stress, anxiety, illness and depression all contribute to a chaotic life. So how do you rid your life of the obstacles to your happiness and change it for the better?
Yehuda Berg says the answer lies within a group of sacred letters from the biblical story of Moses and the Red Sea. In his book “The 72 Names of God,” Berg says that through 72 three-letter combinations taken from three biblical verses, you can find the strength to eliminate negative forces that keep you from living a fulfilling life.
The book explains that the 72 names are not “names” in the literal sense, but visual mantras that are activated spiritually rather than vocally. These spiritual tools come from a tradition called Kabbalah, which is today the fastest-growing global spiritual movement. Contrary to popular belief, Kabbalah is not a religion and you do not have to be Jewish to study it.
According to the teachings of Kabbalah, everything, including our destiny, begins and ends with our own individual behavior. The apparent randomness that we encounter in life is actually a system of cause and effect. Furthermore, the ability to overcome challenges lies in the power of mind over matter.
“The 72 Names of God” encourages readers to meditate on the names and follow through with a physical action to implement positive change in their lives.
Here are a few of the names and their applications:
* Healing: Think about others who also need healing. Be accountable. Blaming someone or something else absolves us of responsibility. Accepting 100 percent responsibility brings about the energy of healing.
* Unconditional Love: You should offer unconditional love to others if you want to have peace and serenity in your life. Love has the power to eradicate all forms of darkness. When you offer love to your enemies, you destroy their darkness and hatred.
* Eliminating Negative Thoughts: When negative thoughts – worry, anxiety, fear, pessimism, uncertainty – invade your mind, focus on thoughts that move you forward, not backward.
* Letting Go: Human nature is to hang on to past regrets and earlier traumas. But you cannot live a fulfilling future if you are hanging on to an unhappy and cynical past. This name gives you the courage to let go.
