Reversing Ten Plagues
When illness strikes, should we curse God? Should we fight for our health?
Jacob, our third patriarch, demanded of God that He give us illness so that we would feel the urge to put our house in order.
With Adam’s fall we lost our wholeness.
Returning to wholeness requires understanding where we deviated and why.
Like Pharaoh of the stiff neck in the Exodus story, we have stubbornly resisted doing what we know in our innermost self needs to be done.
To start the journey back to wholeness, we are going to reverse through the ten plagues to leap into the ten perfect creations. We will return to the holiness of the Garden, to the state of Oneness.
The metaphoric number for wholeness in the Hebrew Bible is Ten.
The Bible dramatically opens up with ten sounds so powerful they break through non-existence to create space-time and all that occupies it—Light, the Firmament, the Sea and Land, the Sun, Moon and Stars; the swarms of living creatures in the Ocean, and Adam, the first Human, who contains the obligation to make fruitful the gifts we were endowed with.
Illuminating God’s Image in our bodies—these Ten Spheres of Action (Sephirot)—depend on us to act.
For us to sustain whole and healthy bodies in a healthy world.
Ten keeps reappearing in the Bible: Ten Generations from Adam to Noah, Ten Abrahamic Tests, Ten plagues, Ten Commandments.
It will take us Ten Gates of Transformation before we can return our “semblance”—to One, to God’s Image.
We must reverse back to the source of wholeness.
Wholeness requires a soul journey through the desert. The promise is that if we return to Source, to One, to the Godlike Image in the tabernacle of our bodies, we will be restored instantaneously to health and wholeness.
