4 Steps to Yearning for Geula:
Interview with Sarah Yehudit Schneider
GEULA SUMMIT / Shifra Chana Hendrie 8 Tammuz / 7/11/19
4 Steps to Yearning for Geula:
1. YEARNING / LONGING for the lack to be filled and move into the era of growth and joy. give focus to the present; yearn for mashiach; allow ourselves to feel the lack; to drown in the sorrow; the grief etc that are going to be healed; that longing for it to be potent, it has to be visceral; from the heart. It can be scary, will I find my way back to the light; trust the process and allow ourselves to feel the lack/longing
2. STEP BACK / EMUNAH; and hold the faith; The big picture; to know with certainty that failure is not an option. Only one reason which Moshiach wont come today. There’s still work to be done which allows the full purpose of creation to be accomplished. When we have fulfilled all the requirements,Moshiach will come.
3. ACCEPT (opposite of 1) the present circumstance as it is. She’asa li kol tzarki. Everything H’ does is for good. I have everything I need right now for spiritual development. Without a doubt I know that this present reality - with all its lacks - is the gentlest way that could bring about the necessary The upshot of every tikkun is a new increment of consiousness. the ultimate pleasure. The new awareness that became available in this imperfect moment, will be more of a joy, peace and satisfaction than I was asking for. Haga (unripe fruite(min 12.43)
4. DANCE BACK & FORTH between the Aching of step 1 and the unconditional exceptance of step 3. At the same time, keeping the constant presence of step 2 in the background.
from 2 words: chash: silent / receptivity mal: speech / goal-directed.
Phase 1: (Maase Bereshit, Concealing and withdrawing light is phase,
Phase 2: Maase Merkava (Yechezkel) Merkava: bringing the light in.
Chashmal is an electric / magnetic constant dance.
surrendering will; acceptance / hishtadlut
moving back and forth between these 2 states
Dancing through Life
The Master is able to dance back and forth as if with a propeller, surrendering / exerting, so that they become inter-included between each other.
ie. Tennis. You are taugh in tennis lessons that you have to do a constant dance back and forth, back and forth… Do not stand still! because…Even if you’re on your left foot and the ball is to the right of you, you’ll get there faster if you’re hovering/ dancing above the ground, than if you left foot is planted on the ground (because of the inertia!)
Whatever life brings, we are able to choose
The kabbalistic teaching of chashmal is dancing back and forth between these 2 states and whatever life brings, we are able to choose. One becomes a foreground and one becomes a background - in this moment. When practiced to the point that one moves in the world, it becomes a way of tzipita ha moshiach. yearning and longing and hoping expecting trusting that any moment can be the moment that moshiach can come. To do that in a way that doesnt exaust the heart. Its a spiritual practice. We need to become masters of Ruach Hakodesh. To use it this way in this moment and that way in that moment, and we have to move with that.
DNA: Chevle d’garma; Breath of the bones
Rav Tzadok Hakohein. The capacity to access divine inspiration comes through chevle d’garma, breath of the bones.
Thats where the divine inspiration comes up. It became clearer that the rabbis understood, but they didn’t have the scientific language for it. There is some aspect to the soul - as we know it currently as DNA. As the soul comes down and down to the world -from a more spiritual world -to a more material world…
The golden thread of the soul constricts and conceals, and constricts and conceals, until it comes down to the essential oil of its uniqueness. The essential oil pressed out of our soul is basically our DNA. That is our individuality. That which endures even when the rest of us dissolves and is shed. It doesn’t determine us but it provides the resources of what we are and what our potential to become. We have involvement in it.
Opening the Channels: Our life is a discovery of WHO AM I REALLY
When the chachamim say that the inspiration comes from the breath of the bones / DNA, it means to be saying that our life is a discovery of WHO AM I REALLY and the more we plug in to who I am truly, the more the channels open to divine inspiration!
The less I’m in touch with myself - the more I’m trying to be what the others are doing - the less space there is for the guidance for divine inspiration to come through.

Transitioning to Geula Consciousness: No More Competition
There will be about 200 years when
people will be able to pop into their light body
you will have an insight that’s so awesome
your soul flies out of your body and flies back
as a light body
there’ll be early poppers and late poppers
If we keep up the pace @ maximum exertion level
we can transition smoothly
but if we have to crash at the end
and absorb at a short period of time
sometimes concealed good - seems bad
We have to dilate in order to make space
that can be a painful way
to enter the End of Days
if our minds are closed we can’t receive
be giving! Share your light!
the less threatened we are in generosity
the faster we can move forward in all areas of our life
no more competition (keeping the gevora level of setting boundaries)
transitioning to Moshiach consciousness
Note: I was definitely popping from listening to this interview and am very grateful to Sarah Yehudit & Shifra Chana for bringing this out to the world. A particularly special insight was the mashal about the tennis player. I have vivid memories of my tennis coach never letting me stand still as he was always coaching me to “dance!” from my left foot to my right foot - In an elevated vibrational state above the tennis court. This completely resonates as I’m working on transitions. Now I’ll remember my “coach” telling me not to stand still - that’s how we can “dance through life”. By always being mindful and aware to be ready to pivot at any moment / activating our Daas - from step 1 (Yearning) to step 3 (Acceptance) - while constantly in step 2 - EMUNAH/ DAAS / CONNECTION with H’ always constant. They eventually come to intermingle. That’s the REAL avoda. Holding space for these 2 perceptions as really being ONE.
