I Am Whole

Intro: This chant is a niggun, a wordless melody, that actually has words. The person who created it is named Bon Singer. And the words are: Ahava, v’rachamim, chesed, v’shalom. So what the words mean are: love, compassion or mercy, kindness, and peace, or holiness. And I like to think of this chant as one that will support you, it supports me, when I need a little extra “mm” to keep going. So the affirmation that I wrote for this is: I am love, I’m compassionate, I am kind, and I am whole.

Lyrics:
Ahava
V’rachamim
Chesed
V’Shalom

I am love
I’m compassionate
I am kind
I am whole
