Day 36 – Chesed in Yesod

Chesed is an energy that is expansive.  The opening day of this week brings us face to face with self-doubt. Am I capable of this change—can I truly change?  After all—this is a pretty large (expansive) task for one person (or for a person who does not yet see themselves as up to the task).  So today we experience the full force of doubt alongside our determination and confidence in ourselves. Doubt has a way of expanding. I may be determined but only one hand is voting.
