An individual's PERSONAL Psalm that will connect that person to his/her Spiritual Essence of the Universal Oneness is the
Psalm that is one number more than the person's age, i. e. if you are 50 years old, your personal Psalm is Psalm 51.
Another PERSONAL PSALM FOR DIVINE CONNECTION is the Psalm that corresponds with the weekly Torah and Haftorah readings.
*RECITE PSALM 46 WHEN NEEDING PEACE.*
*FOR DIVINE GUIDANCE IN AN IMPORTANT DECISION*

*SAYING PSALMS FOR ONE WHO IS ILL OR FOR SELF WHEN ILL*
one is ill, one should recite verses from the acrostic Psalm, Psalms 119, using the verses in an order that spell his/her
name. This can also be done when praying for someone else who is ill. It can be done in any language. Also Psalms 6, 13, 20,
22, 23, 30, 32, 38, 41, 51, 86, 88, 91 are a cure for recovery from illness.
One should donate money to charity to
help divert a "harsh decree" when one is ill or when wanting a healing for one who is ill.
We must remember that,
in the end, all healing is up to the Will of God. God knows where each individual is in their need to go on to the next level
of their development and advancement, sometimes this can only be acheived by entering the Valley of the Shadow of Death (which
is really a birth and transition into the next phase of eternal life.)
A person who has the ability to memorize the
Book of Psalms in Hebrew will rectify all personal flaws, and will be guaranteed a place in the World to Come.

THE USE OF HERBS SHOULD NEVER TAKE THE PLACE OF GOING TO A QUALIFIED PHYSICIAN!
Traditional herbal medicines may bring harm to an individual, if not used properly and in the right doses, and prescribed
by true, qualified Medicine People. One must be careful that herbs and prescribed medicines are compatable, that the herbs
are pure, and that you are using the proper herb for the problem. Remember, that often herbs are powerful drugs, and must
be recognized as such.

Any Herbalist Medical book will direct you in how to use these, and other herbs correctly.
*FOR A HIGH FEVER*
BONESET has been used for centuries to alieviate high fevers caused by bacteria infections or viruses. It is a diaphoretic

sores, as an insect repellent, as a cure for sore mouth, and as a treatment for liver and stomach ailments.

***THE BEDTIME FORGIVENESS PRAYER***
RIBONO SHEL OLAM [The One who has brought the Universe into being],
I hereby forgive anyone who has angered or provoked me, or anyone who has sinned against me, whether with regard to my
physical person, my finances, my honor, or anything that is connected to me, whether accidently or willingly, whether intentionally
or unintentionally, whether by word, or by deed, whether in this incarnation of life or in another incarnation of life, whether
by a member of my Tribe or by a non-Jewish person.
May no person be brought to punishment as a result of things done to me. May it be Your Will, ADONAI, my Infinite Power,
and Infinite Power of my ancestors, that I not come to transgression again.
And may You, in Your great mercy, erase that which I have transgressed against You. Please may the forgiveness not come
through suffering or severe illness.
May the words of my mouth and the meditations of my heart be acceptable before You, ADONAI, my Rock and my Redeemer.
May the Eternal Infinite One bless you and protect you; May the Eternal Infinite One shine His Face upon you and be gracious
to you; May the Eternal Infinite One lift up Her Face to you and grant you harmony and PEACE. (Numbers 6: 24-26)
May the honor of the Infinite One be Eternal; May the Infinite One rejoice in His works, May She who looks upon the earth
as it trembles; be He Who touches the mountains as they smoke.
I will sing to the Infinite One while I am alive, and dance a praise dance to the Force while I am still here. May my
meditation be sweet unto Him. As for me, I rejoice in the Infinite One. (Psalm 104: 31-33.)
**REB ZALMAN BEDTIME FORGIVENESS PRAYER**
YOU, my ETERNAL FRIEND, WITNESS now that I forgive anyone who hurt or upset me or who offended me-- damaging my body, my property,
my reputation or people that I love; whether by accident or purposely; with words, deeds, thoughts or attitudes.
I forgive every person who has hurt or upset me. May no one be punished because of me. May no one suffer from karmic consequences
for hurting or upsetting me.
Help me, Eternal Friend, to keep from offending You and others. Help me to be thoughtful and not commit outrage by doing
what is evil in Your eyes.
Whatever sins I have committed, blot out, please, in Your abundant kindness, and spare me suffering or harmfulillnesses.
Help me become aware of the ways I may have unintentionally or intentionally hurt others, and please giveme guidance and strength
to rectify those hurts and to develop the sensitivity to not continue acting in a hurtful way. Let me forgive others, let
me forgive myself, but also let me change in ways that make it easy for me to avoid paths of hurtfulness to others.
I seek peace, let me BE peace. I seek justice, let me be just. I seek a world of kindness, let me be kind. I seek a world
of generosity, let me be generous with all that I have. I seek a world of sharing, let me share all that I have. I seek a
world of giving, let me be giving to all around me. I seek a world of love, let me be loving beyond all reason, beyond all
normal expectation, beyond all societal frameworks that tell me how much love is "normal," beyond all fear that
giving too much love will leave me with too little. And let me be open and sensitive to all the love that is already coming
to me, the love of people I know, the love that is part of the human condition, the accumulated love of past generations that
flows through and is embodied in the language, music, recipes, technology, literature, religions, agriculture, and family
heritages that have been passed on to me and to us. Let me pass that love on to the next generations in an even fuller and
more explicit way.
Source of goodness and love in the universe, let me be alive to all the goodness that surrounds me. And let that awareness
of the goodness and love of the universe be my shield and protector. Hear the words of my mouth and may the meditations of
my heart find acceptance before You, Eternal Friend, who protects and frees me. Amen.
