Happy Purim! Are You Using Your Secret Power Today?

Happy Purim My Friend!​​​​​​​  Today is Purim and the spiritual energy of the day is "ve'nahapoch hu," which means "it will be turned over". Purim is a very powerful day to pray that whatever in your life needs to change and get better will be turned around!  You have tremendous divine assistance today - so go for it! Ask for whatever you need, all day long. Make pockets of time to talk to G-d from your heart today, no matter how busy you are! I've seen it work miraculously in my own life. I received such an interesting question from Jen about my last email, I wanted to share it and ask for your opinion, too. Here's the question: "Hi Rae,  Thank...

What's the Secret of Oy to Joy? [Soul Tips]

Greetings & Blessings My Friend!​​​​​​​  There’s a game my little grandson Tuvya loves to play. It goes like this: I hug him really close and kiss him a gazillion times. Then with my hands underneath him, fully supporting him, I pretend to drop him. Oh, does he giggle! He loves it. Then, up for a big hug and more kisses… And then – whoops! Down he goes with more giggles. Then up again for more kisses. Have you ever played this game with a toddler?   Why do they love this game so much? Why aren’t they scared when we pretend to drop them? Why do they enjoy the "joy to oy" experience so gleefully? They know that our loving hands...

Shabbat Chazon - The Sabbath of Vision Before Tisha B'Av

Greetings & Blessings! Have you ever had a goal, maybe a project or a change you wanted to make, that seems endlessly beyond reach? You work on it and work on it. You think you’re getting closer. Then another year goes by and it’s still not done?! Yeah. Me, too. I’ll tell you more about that below (That’s why I asked for your encouragement!). And it’s not only you and me. It looks like G-d also has an unfinished project that seems like it’s going on forever (at least from our perspective). It’s rebuilding His home in this world. This Shabbat is the Shabbat before Tisha B’Av, the 9th day of the Hebrew month of Menachem Av [The fast day of Tisha B’Av,...

The New Month of Menachem Av - Is Something Troubling You?

  Greetings & Blessings! Can you imagine what it would be like to be homeless?Today is Rosh Chodesh Menachem-Av. This month brings with it a deep sadness for our broken world and the things we lack – especially our Holy Temple, the Bais Hamikdash, that is G-d's home in this world. Imagine - the Master of the Universe, Who is everything, and has everything, is homeless in our world! Do you know why G-d even created this world? To build a home here – and now it's smashed in ruins!Have you ever wondered why the chassan, (groom) smashes the glass at the end of the Jewish wedding ceremony? As our holy sages teach us, even in the midst of our greatest...

Lag B'Omer & Mother's Day: The Story of Rabbi Shimon bar Yochai's Mother

B"H Lag B'Omer & Mother's DayThe Story of Rabbi Shimon bar Yochai's Mother Greetings & Blessings! When I was a little girl in first grade, I hated school. Every day I cried. Whenever I cried the teacher would bring a plant to my desk and say, "Don't waste your tears. Water the plant." Oh, how I hated that! Until today. Because today I finally discovered just how wise that teacher was.   Today is the beautiful convergence of Mother's Day and Lag B'Omer, a very powerful Jewish holiday. Hmmm... I wondered. Since nothing is random coincidence, what special message is there in this combination of joyful events?   "I just heard something about Rabbi Shimon Bar Yochai's mother last night. Try...
