The process of pouring our heartfelt thoughts and feelings to G-d often enables us to feel cherished and uplifted. Rebbe Nachman explains that hitbodedut is meant to be a deep, intimate talk with our Creator in order to reach heart-felt issues that need to be addressed. Chiseling through the fortress surrounding our hearts requires a significant period of regular time to open up and acknowledge our feelings and emotions. He therefore advises us to do one hour of hitbodedut a day in order to reach this deep, penimi place, this deep place within.

One remarkable effect of hitbodedut is the ability to deeply connect to G-d in a close and personal way. This process illuminates our soul. Through emotional discourse – words of praise, appreciation, desire, will, lament, and honest reflection – we are able to bond with our Creator on the deepest level.

Feel and heal exercise of the day:

Gently close your eyes and see the fortress around your heart; we all have one. Whisper words to help open it and see how your heart begins to shine through your heart wall.  Make this part of your daily routine.
