Kabbalah By Heart

Allison Gilbert, LMFT, Certified Kabbalah Coach


This blog comes from my heart. I want to share the Judaism that Jews are yearning for. To help them access the beautiful wisdom coming from their own back yard, ancestors and tribe. And this is for non-Jews as well, to come to know that what has evolved into Western Civilization has come from a depth that is ancient and rarely revealed and mostly distorted due to mistranslations and cultural appropriation and blind anti-semitism.

Making Security a Priority

Posted on March 6, 2023 at 4:00 PM

Fear is part of the DNA of being Jewish. I've learned to protect myself by making security a priority. I'm grateful to be going to Israel when they've got the iron dome and the walls keeping out most of the terrorism they experienced during the 90's. I lately read a book about

Spontaneous Consulting

Posted on March 3, 2023 at 3:50 PM

Have you ever had a hard day or moment and just needed some reassurance about what it's all about? Cards work so well for that! I have been consulting my cards pretty regularly lately and am so proud of what I have created. They are so deep that I really don't need to pull a card every day because many of them can inform me for days, weeks, and an entire month!


I get answers to the questions that plague me.


Mostly the question is this:...

The Power of Drawing Your Desires to You

Posted on February 28, 2023 at 12:20 AM

When you've been through trauma - as we all have, you can end up with something called PTSD. This term can refer to a soldier who actually relives a past event as if it's happening in the present moment. For many of us, though, it could simply be a fear that what happened in the past could happen again in the future.


After my husband died, I feared others of my family dying too. I also feared I would get a relapse on my cancer and die myself. It may not be ...

Transform Your Emotions

Posted on February 23, 2023 at 7:00 PM

I thought I'd only write once a week but this came up and I was in a really inspired mood, so here goes!


I have been a person whose emotions gets the best of them from time to time. Being in therapy has helped because I didn't have a compassionate ear a lot of the time when I was growing up. But when the sh*t hit the fan in my life in 2017, when my dad died and then with Geoff, I decided to start a "grief" journal that I still write nearly every day since then....

Meaningful Coincidences

Posted on February 19, 2023 at 3:50 PM

In 2017, my dad died. I felt like all the love in our family went with him. Geoff had begun stuttering and was diagnosed 6 months later, given 4 years to live. It was with the same disease as was just recently announced about Bruce Willis. I longed to ask my dad, the doctor, about it. To feel his love...

Overcoming Overwhelm

Posted on February 8, 2023 at 5:05 PM

This week I hit the wall of overwhelm. I saw a pattern of getting anxious and then adding more and more onto my plate to avoid the anxiety. So instead of dealing with the things that are really bothering me, I will get really busy and have to deal with overwhelm! Do you do that too?


Body Symptoms

My body has always given me signs. It comes up with many symptoms to get me to change my ways. Migraines, insomnia, a sore shoulder, a stu...

What Inspires You?

Posted on February 2, 2023 at 4:50 PM

When I started really learning about Kabbalistic Judaism, I was inspired by the concept of "Geulah". The word literally means "redemption" but that word is so un-inspiring! What does redemption really mean in modern thought and perspectives? Geulah actually answers the most basic and most meaningful questions of life.


The Most Important Questions


  • Why are we here?
  • What are we supposed to do with this life?
  • ...

Magic and the Mystical

Posted on January 30, 2023 at 1:35 PM

I have always wanted to imbue my life with magic and the mystical. How can I be inspired in my daily life? What gives my life meaning? These are the questions I bring into the new life that I am creating. What are YOUR questions?


Saying Goodbye

In the past 2 1/2 years, I've been wanting to create a new life that is better than the old one. A life filled with magic, synchronous events, meaningful coincidences and joyful interactions ...

Did You Feel It?

Posted on January 26, 2023 at 5:55 PM

There's a new moon which means there's a new month on the Jewish calendar. Did you feel the change? In this post, I want to talk about the Jewish secrets of time. Did you know that every Jewish holiday, every month and every day of the week is a mystical portal to your soul's potential? Today is the 4th day of the new month of Shevat.


Spring is Stirring

New life is stirring hidden within the trees right now and in Kabbalah, a human is a "T...

I'm Finally Doing It!!

Posted on January 24, 2023 at 12:40 AM

I've felt so stuck and static the past few years! Have you too? The past few years have been filled with fear and isolation and loneliness. But I decided to take a risk and join my Kabbalah teacher's year-long program in order to get me out of my slump. Sometimes just taking one step forward, even if you're not sure and even if you're afraid, can transform everything.


One Step Forward

A year long commitment to a program isn't a small, baby...
