Week 46’s task of 50 Weeks to a Lighter More Loving You is MaHakom.
One of the names of God in the Hebrew Scriptures is HaMakom meaning “the omnipresent,” literally translated “THE PLACE.”
A traditional Jewish sentiment offered to someone in grief, “HaMakom yenachem et’chem,” means “May THE PLACE comfort you.”
While THE PLACE is the divine, the spiritual, the presence that is within us and with us at all times, THE PLACE carries a sense of belonging as well. THE PLACE where one belongs. We find our PLACE…in the divine, scheme of life, the world.
Having THE PLACE and A PLACE can help us with feelings of worth, comfort, peace, love, and contentment.
THE PLACE is inside you, YET an actual PLACE to connect, recharge, and be reminded of YOUR PLACE does much to facilitate your journey to a lighter, more loving you.
This week your task is to create YOUR PLACE, THE PLACE, A PLACE for you in your home where you can go and meditate, journal, read, relax, breath, get centered, connect to a higher power, and just be you.
It might be a chair, a closet, the kitchen counter, or your side of the bed.
What would you put there to make this your PLACE….your sacred space?
- A candle,
- a special book,
- eye glasses,
- colored pencils,
- meaningful photo,
- a special rock?
Would there be any boundaries around your PLACE?
- If candle is lit, please do not disturb?
- Quiet time for others in your home when you are in your place?
- Certain time of day you will give yourself permission to be there?
Take time this week to find and create your MaHakom…THE PLACE.
Cheering You on to a Whole MaHakom Heart,
