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 (I, God, am your healer). During Iyar, therefore, we receive the gift of true and lasting healing.
As the Rav has repeatedly made clear, our first understanding in this month must be the knowledge that we do have the ability to heal ourselves, not only on the physical level but also emotionally, and certainly spiritually. True, we might need assistance and we might go to a doctor to help us in the healing process, but real and lasting healing power originates inside each of us.
Ultimately, to bring about permanent healing, we need to connect with healing Light, and the knowledge that we can heal ourselves is the connection for bringing the Light of healing permanently into our lives.
We must always remind ourselves that every form of chaos — including illness — is an illusion and will not last. This is the most important awareness we need to have when facing any sort of chaos in our lives. We must persevere based on our consciousness that chaos is only a physical manifestation and therefore temporary. Its disappearance may not come quickly or easily, but in the end, the illusion that is chaos will vanish.
Many people who come to The Kabbalah Centre study for years. Others are here for much shorter periods of time. People come and go, but whether someone stays or not, it is important to remember what lies at the core of The Kabbalah Centre’s work — and at the core of the wisdom of Kabbalah. Ultimate fulfillment is our destiny. Chaos is not permanent.
This is a tremendous gift for us during the month of Iyar. The Gates of Heaven are open, may we take advantage of all that is available.
