A calm mind is the prerequisite for Divine inspiration and assistance.
During one of our parenting classes, I mentioned that physical relaxation is actually the experience of Hashem entering a person's system and settling within him. This is understandable because Hashem will always come close to a person who lets Him in.
The physical world is just a reflection of the upper spiritual worlds. What happens when you open an air-tight bottle? Air rushes in to fill the vacume.
It works the same way spiritually.
The next time you feel stressed out, just sigh deeply and say with sincerity: Hashem: 'I'm ready to recieve You':
Hashem's Light instantly fills your body. He settles in every part of you: your nerves...your bones...your muscles.
Hashem's Light enters every cell of your mind and body. You are whole again...Your consciousness is expanded...You can answer any question and deal with any situation.
With gratitude to Hashem and Rivka White for the inspirational poster.
Wishing You Peace,
