Ometz Lev Meditation

 

 

Singing: Ozi v’zimrat Yah va’yehi li li’shu’ah

This is a meditation to cultivate and integrate Ometz Lev, a strong heart, courage. The words of this opening niggun is a reminder that my strength comes from Yah, comes from Hashem and is sustained by the flow of spiritual goodness from the heavens. 

I will now use a focus phrase, a mantra, to meditate and help to integrate a strong heart, courage, that is nourished and sustained by the heavens. 

Yirat hashamayim, fear and awe of the heavens and Hashem, cultivate a strong heart to overcome the darkness within.
