The sages teach us that there are three actions that remove bad decrees;
Teshuva (Repentance), Tefillah (Prayer) and Tzedakah (Charity). We repeat these words during Rosh Hashanah services.
2 Chronicles 7:14
“וְיִכָּנְעוּ עַמִּי אֲשֶׁר נִקְרָא-שְׁמִי עֲלֵיהֶם, וְיִתְפַּלְלוּ וִיבַקְשׁוּ פָנַי, וְיָשֻׁבוּ, מִדַּרְכֵיהֶם הָרָעִים–וַאֲנִי, אֶשְׁמַע מִן-הַשָּׁמַיִם, וְאֶסְלַח לְחַטָּאתָם, וְאֶרְפָּא אֶת-אַרְצָם”
“and My people who are called by My name humble themselves and pray (prayers) and seek My face (Tzedakah) and turn from their wicked ways (Teshuvah), then I will hear from heaven, will forgive their sin and will heal their land.”
Teshuva is repentance and regrets for going far from the path of the light. This means cleansing through forgiving and asking forgiveness from others.
Tefilah is following the prayers as the sages gave us to help us create channels to the upper levels and allow the light to come into our vessels.
Tzedakah is giving money to remove the aspect of death from our lives allowing the previous two elements to affect our lives positively. We receive free energy from YHVH to use in this life and our negative actions cause dark spots on our spiritual garments and blocks the light from connecting to us. When we give Tzedakah to create channels of light/life, we ‘bleach’ these spots and restore life into our spiritual garments.
By the grace of God, the Daily Zohar delivers daily Zohar studies. We never ask people directly to give money to support our projects. For that reason, the flow of donations is slow. We could do a lot more if more of those who benefit from the Daily Zohar, contribute. I thank God for having a good day job to earn money and sustain the family so I won’t be dependent on donations for my livelihood. Your support is used to maintain a stable system, the mobile apps that benefit thousands of users every day.
Before Rosh Hashanah it’s important to remove all aspects of Bread of Shame. Make a donation to the Daily Zohar to thank God for this important resource. I thank God for the Daily Zohar that forces me to study and write every day, fulfilling the precepts of study Torah day and night. Your charitable giving would have global impact because our projects are free and help many other people. The Daily Zohar is not part of or affiliate with any organization.
Promise yourself (B’li Neder) that in the coming year you will share your tithe with other sources that benefit you. If you visit and study from different sources online on a regular basis, then you should give to all, even if it is smaller amounts. Giving proper tithe opens greater channels of sustenance. The spiritual rules are more important than the numbers.
Shana Tova means “Good Year”. A good year also means a good correction process. A year full of correction is great but we want to make it all positive so the proper blessing would be “Wishing you a good and blessed year”. We say it in Hebrew “L’Shana Tova U’Mevorechet” for a good and blessed year.
L’Shana Tova U’Mevorechet to all of you with love and hugs to each one of you.
