Well, it’s like this: God created the world via 10 ‘worlds’ or spheres of energy, that are commonly referred to in the Jewish mystical tradition, (a.k.a. Kabbalah) as Sefirot.
According to the Kabbalah, these 10 sefirot are split into three higher ones, and seven lower ones – and the seven lower ones are associated with a whole bunch of different things, including the main ‘attributes’, or character traits, that us human beings are meant to work on and perfect.
There are different ideas as to what each of these seven Sefirot are actually referring to.
My take on what these seven attributes are telling us to work on is as follows:
- Week 1: Love & relationships
- Week 2: Self-improvement
- Week 3: Truth
- Week 4: Seeing the good / specialness
- Week 5: Gratitude
- Week 6: Sense of Purpose
- Week 7: The Spiritual Dimension
Traditionally, the best time to work on perfecting these seven attributes / worlds / character traits is considered to be the 49 days between Passover, and the Jewish festival of Shavuot, that occurs exactly seven weeks’ later.
Now, this is where the 49 Days interactive journal can come in, because each day it will spell out what particular character traits need some work, and give you an exercise to do that will really tap-in to the spiritual energy of that day, to get things moving.
The book is meant to be going live on Amazon in the next day or two (and I’ll post up the link when it does), but in the meantime, dear reader, I’m giving you a sneak peek at the first week's pages (checkout the slideshow at the top of the post).
