Ten Months of Kabbalah

I still can’t explain it very well

This weekend I’m at a retreat that is culminating a 10-month journey with Universal Kabbalah from the Modern Mystery School. It has been astounding, heartbreaking, fun, infuriating, and every other emotion in between them.

I have great difficulting in clearly explaining spiritual and experiential happenings at times, but I do my best.

As one example of the life-changing potential in Kabbalah: Last June I was in such a precarious financial condition that my wife and I were paying our bills thanks to yard sales, while less than 18 months later, I’m driving a new Tesla.

Please enjoy my rambling, foul-mouthed, attempt to describe the last 10 months of Kabbalah.

 

Wonder what I said back at the start of this? Me too. Let’s find out.

Venturing into the Unknown

Kabbalah is an ancient wisdom that reveals how the universe and life work.

Today I begin a 10-month personal growth program called Universal Kabbalah. I don’t know much about it, which is how I like to roll into new explorations of my self. I do know that Kabbalah is rooted in Jewish mysticism and most people might never have heard of it before Madonna started studying it in the 1990s.

Kabbalah is an ancient wisdom that reveals how the universe and life work. On a literal level, the word Kabbalah means “receiving.” Studying this knowledge empowers us to improve our lives by discovering our purpose, and achieve the lasting fulfillment we are meant to receive. I don’t know about you, but that sounds pretty sweet to me.

Universal Kabbalah is the version taught by the Modern Mystery School. I became an Initiate in the Modern Mystery School in March of 2016 and learned numerous tools and techniques that I use on a daily basis. Regarding Kabbalah, the mystery school removed the most strictly religious aspects of it to make the core wisdom available to people of all faiths. It is more of a metaphysical teaching than religion, which is another reason this particular program appealed to me.

Wikipedia states:

Kabbalah’s definition varies according to the tradition and aims of those following it, from its religious origin as an integral part of Judaism, to its later Christian, New Age, and Occultist/western esoteric syncretic adaptations. Kabbalah is a set of esoteric teachings meant to explain the relationship between an unchanging, eternal, and mysterious Ein Sof (infinity) and the mortal and finite universe (God’s creation). While it is heavily used by some denominations, it is not a religious denomination in itself. It forms the foundations of mystical religious interpretation. Kabbalah seeks to define the nature of the universe and the human being, the nature and purpose of existence, and various other ontological questions. It also presents methods to aid understanding of the concepts and thereby attain spiritual realization.

While the Modern Mystery School describes their flavor as:

The Universal Kabbalah is the purest form of metaphysical study available on this planet. Focused on understanding the fundamental basis of all creation, it’s goal is to reveal the purpose of our existence and to give us tools for reclaiming our birthright as co-creators on this planet. Through this study we come to the realization of who and what we are, fulfilling the ancient decree: Know Thyself!

Kabbalah is focused around The Tree of Life, which is the blueprint of one’s entire being. In ascending the Tree, the design of life itself is explained and influenced so that we can entirely transform ourselves inside and out. Kabbalah isn’t merely philosophy; there are practical techniques and applications for daily life.

Again, this is what I’ve been told and read. I have not yet had my own experience to agree or disagree, but I’m very much looking forward to my experience over the course of the program. Many people take this program over and over, right now I’ll settle for getting through it once.

I know quite a few people who have gone through this 10-month program. Many have described it as painful and horrible while the ends results are breathtaking, healing and powerful.

The most common metaphor is “crossing the abyss.” I’m going through it with my wife, which I’m told can make it more horrible and also more beneficial. So we’ve got that to look forward to.

I’ll take one more deep breath before I dive into the abyss. I’m sure I’ll share some updates along the way. Stay tuned.

Spirit Activation: Before and After

Okay Spirit, you are officially activated!

This is my first blog post in 6 months. Not coincidentally, those six months were a period of withdrawal and depression triggered by financial challenges, business disappointments, physical injuries, family illness, pet illness and much more culminating in the death of my Dad in July.

Included in the many things I stopped doing in my summer of misery were daily rituals and practices I learned as an Initiate in the Modern Mystery School. I recommitted to my daily practices in early November and within days I was feeling better than I had in 7 months. To continue my rebirth, I opted for another healing called, Spirit Activation. This healing is meant to awaken the soul and the eternal blueprints of my higher mind. Results may include allowing a higher perspective, clarity of choices, and letting go of patterns for several weeks to months.

As I like to do when I’m embarking on new experiences that I can’t really describe, I’ve done before and after videos for the Spirit Activation. Enjoy!

After shooting the 3rd video and with less than 2 hours of sleep, I did indeed make it up 3,166 feet to the peak of Mt Monadnock in New Hampshire.

Mount Monadnock, 3,166' high.

It was a gorgeous, clear day and I was flooded the entire day with memories of the many times I hiked this mountain as a kid with my dad. Once, when I was about 10 years old, we flew all around the Monadnock region in a small four person plane. On that flight we saw a square dancing group dancing on the mountain peak. The next time we hiked up the mountain, I was all bummed that we were there on the wrong day as there were no dancers.

During this ascent, I even shared a few stories of my dad with strangers hiking the trail. It was very cool and I had to pause and step off the trail a few times to let my emotions flow. I could definitely tell that a lot of negative energy had been released during my Spirit Activation. I look forward to seeing how this all unfolds.
