December 26th, yesterday, was the day I had been waiting for, for the last 9 months.
As many of you know, when I was living in Portland, my inner voice told me I needed to be at the Kotel on December 26th. I didn’t know why, or what would happen, but I knew I needed to be there. I decided no matter what was to happen, December 26th would be a day to test my patience. Over the last week, I had no obligations, nobody waiting for me, and no responsibilities that needed tending. For the first time, in a long time, I felt REALLY free, and realized being free entails. With freedom, comes patience, since the future is completely unknown. What an awesome feeling.
So, yesterday morning, I woke up at 6:45, showered, ate an orange, and began walking to the kotel. I got a little lost but by 8:45 I had made it. I took a seat in the “2nd row” in front of the women’s side of the Kotel, and the next thing I knew, 3 hours of meditation had gone by! I spent the remainder of the day meditating on peace and love, being grateful for all of the blessings in my life, and praying for everyone I love.
After the sunset, I left the kotel, headed home and made a new friend, who radiates light from his soul. Hashem heard my prayers, and it continuously sending me beautiful lights!
To feeling love and alive,
Oh and for anyone interested in gematriah, Hashem’s full (unknown) name is equivalent to 26, and also אהבה אחד, One Love, is also equal to 26. A day full of love indeed. 🙂
