Watch for Your Elul Experience: Sundown, Aug. 21, 2017 - Sundown, Sept. 20, 2017

The 30 day period prior to the Hebraic New Year called Rosh Hashanah (the head of the year) is a month called Elul, meaning God is in the garden, or God is drawing near. During this 30 day period we receive messages from the invisible reality about the upcoming year. Almost everyone - no matter what your persuasion - experiences some significant, striking, unusual, different, attention grabbing experience.  This experience can come as an event in waking life or as a significant dream. It shows us what is in the offing for the coming year; either the area we need to work on; some portentous message; something beneficial coming our way.  It defines, one way or another, our focus for the unfolding year. 

Ten days following Rosh Hashana, the Jewish tradition celebrates its holiest day of the year called Yom Kippur or the Day of Atonement (at-one-ment). On this holy day, God is fully present with us. Here, the heavenly Book of Life is opened in which each of us may be inscribed for life for the coming year. The tradition holds that we actively participate in inscribing ourselves in this book of life through our acts of kindness, charitable givings, and prayers.

Elul prepares us for the Day of at-one-ness with Invisible Reality.

Pay attention to your Elul experience starting this  sundown, Mon., Aug. 21 - sundown, Wed. Sept. 20, 2017.
