We are emissaries of G-d here to fulfill our unique task that no one else can do. Each individual has his/her own tafkid (purpose). The greatest Rabbi cannot achieve the calling we were sent here to fulfill. As an agent of G-d’s will, we are enveloped with Divine energy called koach hamishalayach (literally “the strength of the sender”). G-d grants us the strength, knowledge and ability to achieve our purpose. Staying loyal to our G-dly mission serves as a protective layer, warding off negativity and evil from entering our lives.
The Ba’al Shem Tov teaches that everyday a Bat Kol, a Heavenly voice echoes from Mount Chorev (the mountain on which the Torah was given), sending us a reminder of our true mission. Even though we may not be consciously aware of it, our soul listens to this call, receiving a new outpouring of strength, guidance and tools to help us accomplish our G-dly mission. As long as we stay on our true path, we will continuously receive the blessings directly from our Creator.

The Heavenly echoes come in the form of seemingly random desires and thoughts. Pay attention today to those moments and recognize they are ‘calls from above’. Whether we embrace or remove them is our choice.
