The kabbalists call this month Iyar, spelled Alef, Yud, Yud, Reish. These letters are a coded message that reveals the month’s internal energy. The word Iyar is actually an acronym for Ani Hashem Rofecha, which means, “I, God, am your healer.” During Iyar, therefore, we receive the gift of true and lasting healing.
In order to prepare ourselves to receive this tremendous Light, we must first understand that we have the ability to heal ourselves, not only on the physical level, but also emotionally and spiritually. While we may need assistance such as a doctor to help in the healing process, the power for real and lasting healing originates inside each and every one of us. Therefore, to bring about permanent healing, we need to connect with that healing Light; and the knowledge that we can heal ourselves is the connection for bringing the Light of healing permanently into our lives. In fact, the Rav always said that knowledge is the connection.
We need to remember that illness is a physical manifestation and a form of chaos. All types of chaos are illusions that will not last; this is the most important awareness to have when facing any sort of chaos in our lives.
The end of chaos does not always happen right away. It's not the next day, the next month, or even the next year. However, perseverance- that ability to know with certainty that although the chaos is here right now, you have no doubt that it will end – is what begins to uproot its power. We need to understand that the chaos we find ourselves in is an illusion, and the way to undermine that pain and suffering is by knowing that it is an illusion, and as such, it will not last - it might not be fast, it might not be easy, but at the end of the process, that chaos will no longer be there.
Knowing our own power to heal is the first and most important step in the process of bringing about lasting health for ourselves and certainly for those around us. We know that the illness we want to heal is an illusion… It is temporary. Chaos is not permanent.
During the month of Iyar, The Gates of healing are open to us, and can help us achieve our ultimate destiny – limitless, endless fulfillment.
