Yom Kippur, also known as Day of Atonement, is the holiest day of the year for all Jewish people. Its main focus is atonement and repentance. Jewish souls traditionally observe this holy day with an approximate 25-hour period of fasting and intensive prayer, often spending most of the day in synagogue services.
I was raised Catholic and later found my Jewish roots. Growing up, I told a priest my sins and then he would absolve them and all negative energy in exchange for prayers and promises not to do it again. Any way to get rid of the baggage of sins that we all carry is a BLESSING. One thing I can see from confession especially at such a young age is the ability to say your sorry. The ability to lay down your ego and pride in hopes of forgiveness from GOD is a huge gift to have. One that we all should practice.
This is the 15th year I will be fasting for Yom Kippur. There are many ways to observe depending on your level of dedication to the holiday. My dedication is more of the purpose and meaning. It is about the connection between your soul and what you believe in. It is about the heartfelt emotion of forgiveness that you extend out from your soul to the Heavens. I focus on what I did lately and things that I have done in my past along with things that I will do in the future. I ask GOD to forgive me for everything.
Forgiveness is not just about asking so you can relieve your guilt and wrong doing. Yom Kippur is also the practice of forgiving others who have wronged you. Relieving anger and resentment is crucial for the well being of the soul and spirit. This weight can effect us more then we know. This is the time that we clean our soul of all energies and deeds. A fresh start for the year to come. To be uplifted so we can fulfill our destiny and we are meant to go. To fulfill our purpose while being mindful to always be the best version of ourselves.
God PLEASE forgive me for everything that I have ever done wrong or negative. PLEASE forgive me for everything that I do now and everything that I do in the future whether knowing or unknowing. Please help me see the right and wrong of every situation and give me the strength to always choose the righteous way. Please help me stay in your light and to spread the love of my soul. Please allow nothing else in my soul but love so there is no room for revenge or resentment. Please help me see, hear and feel what needs to be done. Please always send good deed opportunities my way. Whatever I can do to help to allow the destined paths to unfold as they should. Please be patient with me GOD. Please always have faith in me. I love you and THANK YOU for sending all the guardian angels to help us fulfill our destinies.
If I have ever wronged you, please forgive me. If I ever created any negative moment with you, please forgive me. If I acted any other way but my true self, please forgive me. I forgive everyone and always will. Peace.
