Celebrating the Jewish New Year: 5771

Posted Thursday, September 9th, 2010. Filed Under Voices of wisdom

I tell people I am more Buddhist than Jewish however I am still born and have been raised Jewish. My questioning of my religion is not about being Jewish it has to do with all religions.

In my journey I went along a more spiritual path which brought me to an understanding that G-d is within each of us. As we are one, we impact each other for the better or worse. Collectively we have the ability to create War OR Peace, abundance or lack, joy or sadness. Everything is tied into energy, matter and constant movement. Nothing remains constant — it is always changing.

I do love the holiday time as it is a time for family and gathering – community. This is important to me. Rosh Hashana is the Jewish New Year and it is one of my favourite holidays for to me it represent New Beginnings and with that comes endings as well. This year, 2010, for me so far has been a great time of clarity, discerning and creating what I want. It took me 6 months to get to the point of clarity that I can really begin to create a path for myself. I do not know where exactly this path is going to take me howevere I am excited.

Last year I co-hosted a Spiritual version for the New Year with another woman that I know. We are part of a group called the Spirituelle Divas and many in the group were feeling disconnected from the religious part however they love the message and traditions. We put together a two hour programme which brought in spirituality and Jewish tradition. It was an incredible experience. We have been asked to do this again and we are doing it after Yom Kippur the Day of Atonement. The theme is much what I have been talking about – new beginnings/endings and creating what you want. We want the guests to come with one belief that has been limiting them and/or holding them back to help them release (endings) so that they can focus on what they do want in their life (beginnings).

I will ask a couple of the women to share their experiences.

I also view this time as a time for some to pass on and not be written in the Book of Life. I do know some pretty ill people at this time and my heart goes out to them. May they be taken down the path they are meant to go.

I want to wish those celebrating the Jewish New Year 5771 a very Happy and Healthy New Year. May your year be filled with much laughter, joy, peace and abundance for you and your family.

All my love,
