TaPhSiC method in halacha
(0 viewing) 
On this board, everyone is encouraged to share their journey through the 18 tools of the GYE handbook and get Chizuk and answers from everyone else here as well!

The GYE handbook provides a systematic framework for breaking free of this addiction. But just reading it alone won’t do very much if we don’t “work” the tools therein. So after reading through the GYE handbook once, we go back and start again from the beginning, this time taking it slowly and giving each tool a lot of careful thought. Have we tried the first few tools yet? What parts have we still not tried? Do we have questions, comments, doubts about any of the tools? Slowly but surely, tool by tool, day by day, the GYE handbook - together with the group support of this board - will provide you with the best framework possible for systematic growth and progress.

TaPhSiC method in halacha 23 Jan 2012 16:18 #131415

I've just read about the TaPhSiC method, it sounds amazing.
I'm just worried about the halachic side of making a shevua with Hashems name.
The article here says that Chazal allow such a shevua in order to control our yeitzer for arayos. Could someone please point me towards some halachic sources which support this?

Many thanks!

Welcome 3Munah!

You're not the first one to ask
See this thread:
!אנא עבדא דקודשא בריך הוא

וּבְיָדְךָ כֹּחַ וּגְבוּרָה וּבְיָדְךָ לְגַדֵּל וּלְחַזֵּק לַכֹּל

And every day that you want to waste, that you want to waste, you can
And every day that you want to wake up, that you want to wake, you can
And every day that you want to change, that you want to change, yeah
I'll help you see it through...

And see this post and then the whole page from the top.
The Blind Beggar is a character in Rebbe Nachman's story of the Seven Beggars.
If I view a woman as an object, I am powerless over lust, but I don't have to look.
I can guard my eyes.
I want to guard my eyes.
I do guard my eyes.
Why do I say these four lines?

Thanks everyone for the warmth, enthusiasm and info, may Hashem give you much koach and success in banishing this yetzer.

I understand from the above that there is a haskama from Rav Aharon Feldman shlita on the handbook which includes the TaPhSic method.

Does anyone know of written sources which discuss this type of shevua (like shulchan Aruch)?
Obviously we receive piskei halacha from our Rabbanim, however its important to learn the sugya inside as well
