Amazingly, the red string works in a similar way to modern vaccines. We wear it around the left wrist, and just like a weakened strain of virus which is injected into a person to give his immune system the strength to fight the real virus if it should ever attack us, the specific energy frequency of the color red broadcasts “danger”, protecting us from the dangers of envy, jealousy and resentment.
In addition, the string is processed in a unique way to add to its protective force. A long length of red string is wound around the tomb of Rachel the matriarch. Kabbalists consider Rachel the paradigmatic “mother”, and as such, a protective force always ready to defend her children. According to the Kabbalists the burial sites of great people are sources of the positive energy the exuded during their lives. By wrapping the red string around Rachel’s tomb, the string absorbs the energy of loving mothering and protection. By wearing this string this energy comes to protect us.

We have all heard of the “Evil Eye.” But what is that, really? Where does envy, jealousy resentment originate from? It starts in the eyes, when we see something we want, or someone we are jealous of. Since the eyes are the source of these negative feelings, we have come to understand these emotions as “the evil eye.”
The Kabbalah teaches that this type of negative energy can seriously affect our spiritual well-being. This type of negativity can prevent us from reaching our goals of spiritual growth and personal transformation. Even worse, the “evil eye” can send us backward along a path of growth we’ve already traveled.

Do you know about the “Red String”? Revealed long ago by the ancient kabbalists, the red string works to protect those that wear it in two special ways. It is protection from jealous looks of people we come in contact with, and eliminates feelings of resentment and envy within ourselves.
The red string is worn around the wrist of the left hand, and is made of pure wool. Since the focus of the Kabbalah is on positive and negative energies and not necessarily on the “do’s and don’t’s” of behavior, it is of immeasurable importance that a person has a tool to help him maintain the proper energy in his life. The red string is just such a tool.

When people repeat the same mistakes in their relationships repeatedly it is because they have yet to discover the true reason for their difficulties. Most people are waiting for those around them to change, when what is really needed is for the person who is unhappy to change. The Kabbalah teaches that this transformation is the basis for healing ourselves and our relationships.
At the Kabbalah Centre the ancient wisdom is taught so that people can improve their relationships with themselves, their loved ones, their community, and finally transforming the world in which we live.

The ancient wisdom of the Kabbalah teaches us to no longer focus on our “successes” but rather to learn how to help others. When we help those that we love our anger disappears. This is only natural at the level of positive and negative spiritual energies. Where the positive is influencing us and our environment the negative energies have no place to exist, and just vanish. It is like darkness trying to exist in a place where there is light. There is no way both can exist, and the light always overtakes darkness.
The Kabbalah Center sees as its goal to teach the wisdom of the Kabbalah to all who seek its solace, comfort and direction.

Most people in the modern world wish to meet the ‘right’ person. Often this leads to disappointment and unhappiness. That is because the emphasis is wrong. According to the Kabbalah as taught at the Kabbalah Center, people should be focusing on becoming the right person. This is the true key to fulfilling, loving relationships. The ancient wisdom of the Kabbalah teaches that conflict, disagreements and problems are all chances for us to become that ‘right’ person. These opportunities give us the chance to learn to take responsibility, how to deal with conflict, and how we see our lives holistically.
The Kabbalah Centre is ready to take you on this journey to self-discovery and transformation.

It is amazing to think that not very long ago only an exclusive group of people had access to the incredible wisdom and guidance found in the Kabbalah. With the founding of the Kabbalah Center Rav Berg and his wife Karen have helped create a world-wide movement of people studying and transforming themselves using the great wisdom of Kabbalah. Their goal is to transform the entire world, one person at a time, into a world of loving, peace and perfection.

At the Kabbalah Centre I was intriqued by the emphasis on self-transcendence and connection with the spiritual light that fills the world. When a person acts for the benefit of others, diminishing his own selfish tendencies, especially those of jealousy, envy, and resentment, he is able to connect to the sourc of all goodness in the world and bring that goodness into his own life and to the life of others. The Kabbalah Center therefore becomes the place where we can begin to heal the world through the great Light, source of all goodness.
