Elul - The King is in the Field
 
Hitbodedud - A Powerful tool to help us stay sober
 
By GYE Admin

Here are the "Four Simplified Steps for Hitbodedut" to help you get started:

In a quiet place, with no interruptions, simply talk freely to Hashem in your own words, like to your parent

1) First thank Hashem for what He's given you (does your body work? Thank Him. Do you have a home? Thank Him. Do you have a family? Thank Him. Food to eat? Clothes? Parnosa? A spouse? Kids? Thank Hashem for everything!)

...And- don't forget to thank Him for all the mitzvot that He helps you to do each day, & for any special qualities and positive attributes you have!

2) Tell Hashem all your struggles, all your triumphs, all your worries, and thank Him for all your good deeds

3) Confess your aveiros and resolve not to repeat them. Ask for His help in this!

4) Now ask for ANYTHING you need! It's an Eis Ratzon!!!!

And besides your personal requests, please take a minute also to ask Hashem to help Klal Yisroel, that everyone everywhere in the world should begin davening to Hashem, opening their hearts to Him in thanks, praise, and teshuva, so the Geula will come!

Dealing with "stinking thinking" and moods
 
Part 2/4

Dealing with "stinking thinking" and moods #2

If we truly realized and internalized that our emotions are 100% coming from our thinking, that there is 100% correlation between our thinking and our feelings, there would be many positive implications and ramifications.

One major ramification is that we would "take off the hook" many of the external factors we blame for the way we feel. The deeper we would get it, the more fully we would let go of blaming external factors for the way we feel.

Do you see that?

There is only one culprit for the way we feel - our thinking.

Thank you for everything!

You have no idea the revolution this website caused. Just from my end, with God’s help, a Yid held back from going off, and a couple, who were ready to divorce, are working things out.

Who knows how many people have been helped and are being helped in your zchus!!!!
