Meditation on Guidance
Pause a moment and sit comfortably in a chair or on the floor.  As you enter a sanctuary of radiant light, you are greeted by a spirit who has awaited your arrival.  This spirit has come to assist and guide you on your journey.  Before taking the next step, pause, ask, empty, open, learn, and receive what you need to move forward.  Thank the source of guidance and return refreshed and renewed to this world in which you dwell.  (Strength, p. 146)

Tu B’Shevat, the Festival of Trees, celebrates the rebirth of life after the winter.  

By observing Nature, religious traditions throughout time have uncovered ways of moving from one pattern of energy to another and from one season of life to another.  This is often ritualized through festivals and celebrations.  During the longest nights and shortest days of winter, when the seemingly dead earth comes back to blossoming life, there are festivals of resurrection and freedom.  (Understanding, p. 95)

“On the third new moon after the Israelites had gone forth from the land of Egypt, on that very day, they entered the wilderness of Sinai.”

When the Israelites were gone three months from Egypt, God asked them to recall the miracles and wonders of their passage.  God had lifted them on the wings of eagles, and they ascended the upper realms.  They remembered how, in the heavens, they were touched by holiness, showered in sanctity, and anointed as noble beings.  (Strength, p. 162)
