Good Shabbos and Shabbat Shalom
I know what you’re doing right now: you are lying in bed trying to figure out your daughter. She’s what, eleven now, nearly twelve? You are trying to understand how such deep, profound thinking can be coming from the brain of such a young girl. If she’s this smart now, what are we gonna do with her when she’s older?
You’ve been talking to yourself a lot and I know it’s been really helpful for you. That long commute is good for something besides singing with the radio, right? Well, I have to let you in on a secret: Hashem is listening to everything you say. There’s a special word for the conversations you’ve been having: hitbodedus. I know you’re unfamiliar with the word, but not the concept, you’re pretty good at it. You have analyzed and reanalyzed yourself so many times, and Hashem has heard you. And He understands. And He’s gonna help ya!
Remember the first time she stunned you? You had just moved into the big, new house and she had a big, new bed with plenty of room for Mommy. She was six, headed for first grade, and observant enough to realize that her mommy sometimes had some difficulties talking and moving. You had her lie on her tummy while you ran your fingers up and down her spine, explaining how the brain sends messages out to the body and the body sends messages back to the brain, and sometimes Mommy’s brain sends the wrong messages. Remember what she said?
C’mon, I know you remember. You were tickling her back, up and down, and she asked you –
“Like the angels on Jacob’s ladder?”
Okay, even I can’t remember how you ended up on the floor, stunned into silence, unable to fathom the metaphor she had just presented.
And tonight! She asked such a simple question, she wanted to know why we weren’t keeping kosher since we’re Jewish. You parroted the same answer you received when you asked the same question: it’s old-fashioned, our grandparents couldn’t, and other excuses usually about how difficult it is. And while your answer may not have been original, her response sure was:
“Mommy, that’s stupid!”
So now you’re lying on your big, empty bed, trying to figure out how you are going to keep kosher, and wondering what she will come up with next?
Wish I could reassure you that you are doing all the right things. Wish I could tell you that kashrus is going to be easier than you are expecting. Wish I could tell you that the pains you have been experiencing are only going to require minor surgery and the biopsy will be negative.
And most of all, wish I could tell you that our daughter has grown to be an amazing young woman. She is a teacher, she takes good care of herself, and there is an amazing young man looking for her somewhere. Ya did good!
Somehow, I have a feeling that even then, you knew everything was going to be just fine.
Dear Friends of BreslovWoman.org,
I’m so excited to share this beautiful mission with you.
When I first was asked to work on this important campaign, I immediately liked the idea–but when I actually saw the pocket-sized edition of this new Hebrew-English Tikkun Haklali, I knew I had to dedicate myself to making sure BRI Breslov is able to meet (or hopefully exceed) their goal of giving out 50,000 copies of this powerful prayer. This edition of Tikkun Haklali is interlinear, with a contemporary English translation by Yitzchok Bell (who translated Psalms That Speak to You.)
About the Remedy
For so many men and women, saying Tikkun Haklali has become the cornerstone of their return to a life of joy and connection. Why?
BRI’s Rebbe Nachman’s Tikkun, p.35, based on Likutei Moharan I:205 explains:
“The reason why it is necessary to recite [the] ten psalms is that there are ten kinds of song corresponding to the ten expressions of song and praise on which the book of Psalms is based… Each of these expressions has the power to nullify the power of [the force of impurity] because each of them is the direct opposite of [that force]. Ashrei, for example, is an expression for sight and vision, the opposite of the [force of impurity], whose main strength lies in damaging people’s vision… Similarly, Halleluyah, an expression of praise and joy…is the opposite of yelalah [the wailing of frustrated desire which stems from sadness]… They are Psalms numbers: 16, 32, 41, 42, 59, 77, 90, 105, 137, 150.”
You can learn more about Tikkun Haklali at Breslov.org with our books, articles, videos and podcasts. But SAYING IS BELIEVING. Once you’ve begun to say Rebbe Nachman’s Universal Remedy, you may notice subtle (and not-so-subtle) positive changes in your thoughts and feelings. But for many, the spiritual experience isn’t as much a feeling as it is a “doing.”
Brings Brachos & Changes Lives
I believe Tikkun Haklali changes lives–it’s changed mine. And I also believe that the merit of helping other people access this incredible Remedy is priceless, worth far more than the $1.80 per copy needed for this campaign. Most exciting, is that BRI Breslov will hand out free copies at holy sites around the world, including
The Kotel (the Western Wall)
Rachel’s Tomb in Beth Lechem
Rebbe Nachman’s gravesite in Uman
And many more Holy Sites.
That’s why I’m inviting you join me and help us meet the goal of handing out 50,000 Free pocket sized copies of this Hebrew-English interlinear edition
From BRI Breslov (Breslov.org)
