Netivat Sofrut: diary of a Soferet

Adventures of a female sofer learning to heal the world by doing Holy Work...writing a Sefer Torah

נחזיר את השכינה למקומה בצייון ובתבל כלה

"Let us restore the Divine In-Dwelling to Her Place in Zion & infuse Her spirit throughout the whole inhabited world."

So wherever we are, let us bring the Peace of G@d's Presence.

SCRIBAL EVANGELIST As the only living certified Soferet (סופרת - female Jewish ritual scribe) & the first woman to practice sofrut (creation of sacred Hebrew texts) in over 200 years, I feel an obligation to blog about my experiences of The Work. I am also currently researching the foundation of a lost tradtion of women practicing this holy craft. For more on the services I provide, please see; Sofrut Nation. I am now available to engage with students, male or female, wishing to enter into the preliminary stage of learning sofrut. You are welcome to join me on this path.

Art Green: "Tormented Master"

1-877-742-6333 Shaarei Gan Eden

One of the ways to subdue/prevent the diluted vision of the world, the fantasy that there is no G@d, is through the hand (Hoshe'a).
You can't be a prophet if you're depressed. You need music (ru'ach = air = spirit) because instruments are full of this. Sha'ul went crazy when he came in contact with the prophetic spirit - good vibes & bad vibes - so be careful. He was troubled by an afflicted spirit - because he was a mixture of good & bad when he came into the power.
If you aren't connected with the joy of prophecy, which gives you images of G@d with inspiration from above, the only images you have to work from is the physical world around you. & you will fall into the Ko'ach HaMidameh...
Sha'ul HaMelekh had a distorted energy which repressed him which is why he was an unsuccessful prophet - his ecstasy was just madness.
You have to pull the good ru'ach out of the bad with your hand = hand on the instrument.
People who talk about joy all the time are not experiencing it (Rebbe Nachman, Ba'al Shem Tov, Kotsker...) The big difference between the Ba'al Shem & the Kotzker is that the Ba'al Shem got over his depression & the Kotsker didn't...
GO OUT & PLAY> Do something foolish. You have to have the yad (power) of intention, of consciousness, to pick out these notes, to build this joy. Anytime you locate the good point of something, you're bringing Torah into the world, because everything is Torah - all you have to do is uncover the spark = peel away the chat (distortion) of the Ko'ach HaMidameh.
Mashall = music builds simcha by connecting the good notes. Nigun. Davka through the nigun you can make yourself happy.

Singing a nigun is an inner practice by which you align yourself with G@d = only when you do it with kavanah/intention. Consciousness. Otherwise you do it on automatic & there's no Yad, no power in it. A nigun is like a homeopathic remedy - you just have to choose the right one.

Prescribe a nigun to the soul of Elisha so he can raise himself to the level of prophecy.

Choose the good notes out of the bad & make your soul rise. One can access the power of prophecy through music because it lifts the veneer of the Ko'ach HaMidameh, which damages & confuses.
Let out a spirit that does good, not one that does harm. & you must have a functioning [athiest - yikes freudian slurp] INSTRUMENT in good shape & in tune. You must know how to play so you can really produce the nigun truly. You must refine your midot to play music = so you must have made yourself into a fine, integral instrument = knowledge is not enough.
Midot = more important than mitzvot
You must have a certain degree of development in order to succeed in this.
Music has the ability to go up & go down = LIKE A SCALE = you must be able to go in both directions so you can connect yourself both from above & below.
Then it's just a matter of dosage.
Mishlei (Proverbs) 29:11 = A fool lets all his ru'ach out = expresses all his anger.
Feel your anger but express yourself in a way to keep the nigun of your life going...
When you let your anger out, you lose your connection to the spirit of nevu'ah & Olam HaBa & you forget that G@d is in the world & that G@d is a part of what's making you angry (what's happening) & you're stepping on the toes of the Sh'khinah & push Her out with the Ko'ach HaMidameh because you're not seeing that She is in everybody.

Mishlei: Who's the one who goes to heaven & then comes down..?
The magician - straighening our souls


Mayim is the heart...Shivtkhi Ka'mayim...may your heart pour out like water...the heart is encased in a kli full of water so it will be protected from the Ko'ach HaMidameh.

Yehezkel 47:3 = "You bring me across the ankle deep water" refers to Netzach & Hod of the Adam Kadmon.

Build the binyan of Simchah!

The night is the time we're closest to G@d & easiest to speak directly & find the good ru'ach

"Azamra" = teachings of the Niqudot Tovot

Keep your heart up by remembering something good every night before you go to sleep.

You can see in the presence of G@d yourself clearly & you must bring everything out of yourself & examine it & not be afraid. Overwhelming yourself is self-destructive. So concentrate onyour good points, so you can hold the prophetic vision. Remember, Zeykher Olam HaBa.

[HMDMH (pallindrome) = 5+40+4+40+5 = 94]
[94 also is the gematria of corpse/gufah, the valley of vision/gichzion, extinguish/dakh, destruction/dafi, shore/chof, window/chalon, a drop/tfh & children/yeladim]

The Prophets enable to eliminate false Emunah & remind us of Olam HaBa & teach us that true Emunah is davka in a place where the mind cannot go or know & this is straight from G@d, this power to fix Emunah.

Nevu'ah comes from a neshamah is connected to & blessed by the SOURCE so deeply that it eliminates Ko'ach HaMidameh. That's why it's so important to connect to the ru'ach nevu'ah or to a person who is connected to it, the ru'ach acheret (different spirit) so it spreads through the world. Everyone is happy & grateful for their lives & they heal from this. Speak from your heart what's in there from your level.

Imagination is not enough if you don't have Emunah.

That's why the snake influenced Adam v'Chavah.

Eretz Yisra'el is/was/will be under Hashgachah & one day the whole world will be as well. It's such a power spot. Set up a place in your heart that is Yerushalayim. Bring Sh'khinah wherever you go. One day there will be no galut (exile).

middot are more important than mitzvotWell, that sounds downright heretical! :)

In my experience, I think that there is some truth to this (in fact, I think I'll blog about this at some point). There are 48 ways to acquire the crown of Torah. Without turning yourself inside out and working on your middot, Torah cannot really enter. Mitzvot become motions in space, unattached to anything, and not much else. Middot are the portal.
