The song “Angel” by Sarah McLaughlin always reminds me of the Shekinah. In Judaism, the Shekinah is considered both the Sabbath Bride or Queen, the bride of Hashem and the feminine aspect of G-D. I feel the Shekinah in unexpected moments in my life- as the sun is going down on Friday evening, on a hike in the woods, witnessing the love and tenderness between a mother and child. The Shekinah is a force of healing for all, if you allow this energy into your life and heart.
As a Jewish woman, I recognize now that I often didn’t feel “me” in Judaism. In mainstream Judaism, we speak very little about the role of Shekinah in our lives. We speak very little about the role of the female ancestors- Sarah, Rebecca, Leah, Rivkah, Ruth, Queen Esther- in our lives, as well. And yet I feel our female ancestors and the Shekinah hold a powerful role in healing our lives and healing our bodies of infertility.
We could say that the Biblical Sarah was the first natural fertility healer. She allowed the healing energy of G-D into her heart and body, and allowed herself to co-create healing with G-D, to get pregnant. As a woman who has co-created healing with Divinity to be healed of infertility and PCOS, I know this is no small feat. If you are a Jewish woman trying to get pregnant, what would happen if you asked our ancestress Sarah for help in getting pregnant? What would happen if you prayed to Sarah and allowed yourself to connection emotionally, spiritually and energetically with Sarah? My guess? Magic.
It is my hope, wish and prayer that you can co-create healing with the feminine face of G-D. There is power and potency in going down this road.
All my love,
