Entering The Spiritual Land Of Israel

Topic: Consciousness | Posted:May 31, 2012

This month I wanted to discuss a unique process and opportunity regarding the "Land of Israel," which is a central point of the weekly energy and portion known as Shlach Lecha.

From a kabbalistic perspective, the "Land of Israel" is the energy center of the world. All of the Light, blessings and sustenance that the world receives flows through the land of Israel. So there is a necessity, especially for those of us who do not live in Israel, to maintain a constant connection, not to the physical land, but to the energy of the land.

In his book Chesed L'Avraham (Mercy of Abraham), 16th century kabbalist Rav Avraham Azulai, reveals an interesting secret regarding the spiritual process that occurs upon entering the land of Israel.

When an individual enters the land of Israel, they receive an additional level of soul called the Nefesh of Yetzirah. The first night that a person sleeps in the land of Israel, both the level of soul they entered with and this new additional level of soul leave them. In the morning, only the higher level of soul, the Nefesh of Yetzirah returns. And therefore any negativity a person had done outside the land of Israel will no longer bring judgment to him because the new soul they have received has never fallen or done any negativity. All of the negativity an individual has ever done is removed. It says in the Talmud that an individual who not simply lives, but maintains this consciousness, connection and spiritual elevation inside the land of Israel is considered a righteous soul.

This probably does not happen to everybody, but it is available to those of us who go through this process of entering the "Land of Israel" with this consciousness. It is a tremendous gift that we should appreciate and it occurs every time we enter into this spiritual center of the world. It gives us an appreciation for what maintaining a constant connection to this central spiritual source can do for our spiritual process.

I hope that for those of you who will join us in Israel in future Energy Tours this awakens even greater appreciation for what we can accomplish by physically being together in Israel and that we can truly transform in great ways through this important consciousness.

Blessings and Light,

Michael
