“Shivitis” are contemplative offerings inviting connection to the divine. Flowing from ancient teachings and transformed with gender-neutral/feminine language, these audio/video meditations can be used in prayer, invocation, ritual, and blessings. Best if played on “repeat.”
From the second day of Passover until Shavuot, Jews count seven weeks – seven times seven days – to commemorate the period between the Exodus from Egypt and the Revelation at Sinai. When the Temple stood, a certain measure (omer) of barley was offered on the altar each day; today, we merely count out the days. Week 7: Malchut – The feminine name of God, expounded upon in the rabbinic era and then by the Kabbalists in extensive literature on the feminine attributes of the divine. – The Divine Feminine
Shekhinah is the vessel for the presence of the Divine in our world. In this shiviti I’ve the gleaned the essence of the “Priestly Blessing” (Numbers 6:24-26), reimagined in feminine language.
May Shekhinah bless you and watch over you
May She light up to you
May She rise up to you
And may She bring you peace
