At the end of each day, kabbalists recommend reviewing the day and making spiritual amends with anyone who may have harmed you or with anyone you may have harmed. In this way, we are prevented from ever going to sleep angry, sad, or with impurity. These energies can inhibit our soul’s elevation during sleep, a time we gain important spiritual wisdoms. At night, during our reflection, we are encouraged to remember what is really important in life. We remember that life is not about how much we accumulate or whom we defeat, but instead, how much we gave and who we loved. Before we close our eyes at night, we remember our purpose in this world. We refocus and, hopefully, place ourselves back on our spiritual path. In our meditations we ask ourselves, “If this was our last day on earth, would we feel at peace? Would we feel happy?” This week, we prepare for what is akin to the “evening of the year.” We approach the final month of the year and the finality of the zodiac cycle. We come to what is called, Shabbat Shekalim. This Shabbat always proceeds the beginning of the final month of the astrological calendar year. It is time for us to look back, not just at the day, but the entire year, observing where we spent our energy, whom we loved, and whom we may have had trouble loving. We remember our spiritual purpose and what our heart and soul truly desire. This week, we are given the opportunity to reestablish our path and recommit to follow our voice within. The cosmos gifts us this week with a clean slate, preparing us for the “new day” and new astrological cycle that lies ahead.
