5 Minutes to a Gorgeous, Sincere Smile

5 Minutes

"Converting Anxiety into Complete Joy in Five Minutes." Why don't I write an article like that I? No one would believe that it's possible. It's like saying, "Reaching Planet Jupiter in Five Minutes". At best, you'd chuckle, shrug your shoulders and ask what Lazer smokes (the answer is nothing - I take super good care of myself), while clicking your merry way onto something better to read whose origins aren't from fantasy land...

Cherished Beams brothers and sisters, it's true! You can end anxiety in five minutes (Okay, really tough challenges can take up to 7 or 8 minutes). And, once the anxiety goes, the inner peace flows. That leads to complete joy and that gorgeous smile of yours. In any case, the advice that you're about to learn takes much less time than it does to find a parking place at the psychiatrist's or psychotherapist's office, and it doesn't cost you a cent. There's everything to gain and nothing to lose!

Most people are still skeptical when I tell them this. You do believe that a diabetic individual sees a dramatic improvement in health by getting off junk food and sugar and going on a high-fiber natural diet rich with a few minutes of exercise every day, don't you? That's a no-brainer and a simple matter of discipline, when you realize your life depends on it.

This is no different. By focusing on three simple concepts, you'll rid yourself of stress, anxiety, sadness and depression. I almost forgot despair and disappointment, as well as anger and jealousy. How? Let's get started. In 5 minutes, you'll be brand new. Read Anxiety-Free in Five, my feature article in this week's lovely new issue of Breslev Israel web magazine.

#MeToo - Not You!

Lass with Class
There's a big difference between the Hope Diamond, which weighs 45 Karats and is worth $350 million, and between a broken beer bottle in the street. Whereas the former is a rare gem and heavily guarded, the latter is cheap and rolling around in the gutter for everyone to touch and see. The Hope Diamond is the epitome of class; it conjures up images of a Rolls Royce and Cartier La Dona Watch. Nobody would have the gall to touch or even say something out of line to a woman wearing a Prada tailored-and fitted suit getting of a chauffeur-driven Jaguar XG, especially when the chauffeur and the body-guard sitting shotgun are iron-jawed former MMA stars who weigh 25o pounds each. Why?

The lass has class.

When she gets out of the car with her attache case and walks into her business meeting, people stand up. The young lady looks like royalty; her appearance, posture and speech demand respect. She will make her point and people will listen.

But, if she walks into the meeting wearing her barely thigh-high sleeveless and collarless mini bodycon, no one will hear a word she says. Young lady, you are hereby declaring your candidacy for the #MeToo movement, and the Harveys of the world (which any man who doesn't guard his eyes potentially is) won't be looking to do business with you, any more than one night. Why? Your appearance puts you into the category of a broken beer bottle.

No one said don't look snazzy. No one said don't be attractive. Care about how you look and think twice before you pop the cookies in your mouth. Take care of yourself - eat right and work out at the gym. Take walks everyday and talk to Hashem. But remember that you're His daughter, not Harvey's chunk of meat.

You owe yourself to be a lass with class. If you're a working woman, take 5 short minutes to see how to be a Winning Working Woman. You're success is guaranteed. You'll be commanding more respect and a bigger paycheck. Go for it!

This week's new issue of Breslev Israel web magazine has plenty more dynamite articles.

My esteemed and beloved teacher Rabbi Shalom Arush gives us an option to lamenting during the Three Weeks, and instead, becoming proactive and building A Beautiful World.

Hashem loves Racheli Reckles (so do her readers and all of us at Breslev Israel); she gets herself into jams that nobody could bail her out of except Hashem. Read The Lost Check to see what we mean...

Hitting cleanup in our team of all-star writers is Alizah Teitelbaum, whose weekly column is especially for women. Alizah doesn't want you to be so quick in blabbing your heart out to your so-called best friend. You've been forewarned in Girl-Friend or Foe.

Breslev Israel's women writers are all young ladies with class. See Yehudit Channen's Prayers People Pray to see what I mean.

The head of Emuna Therapy, Dr. Zev Ballen, is a great guy who knows how to make other people feel great, as he does in All or Nothing.

You met former Golani fighter David Perlow this week on our really moving broadcast, One Person to the Rescue.  His latest article is about being a super husband in Make the Peace, Bro.

David Ben Horin is a breath of fresh air always. He loves Israel and he writes this week about Two Levels of National Miracles.

I want to share this short email with you, from Mrs. Judy Inbal in Israel:

"...I was riveted to my seat when I saw One Person to the Rescue. It was like a gripping 'This is Your Life' show and what an exciting surprise ending. Only Hashem could have produced such a broadcast. I never had any idea about the power of Emuna Outreach. From now on, I want a share in the action..."

Mrs. Inbal, Emuna outreach is happy to have you share with us in spreading emuna far and wide.

You too, cherished friends, are welcome to partner with Rav Shalom Arush and Emuna Outreach in saving lives, like you heard in the testimonies of One Person to the RescueDonate to Emuna Outreach - you'll be glad you did! 


A New and Relaxed Reality

Relax
Relax.

Sounds like a nice cliche, doesn't it? It's not. You really can relax, just like you do on a first-class ticket from New York to Tel Aviv. Why? You enjoy the flight - read, drink, whatever you wish - because you don't have to fly the plane. That's the pilot's responsibility.

Life is the same way. We're along for the ride and we don't have to fly the plane. Keep that in mind...

Now, I'm going to take your reality of stress and being uptight all the time and turn it into a wonderful permanent reality of a relaxed and pleasurable life. Still skeptical? I don't blame you. Nonetheless, you owe yourself something better, and you won't have to take a cruise to the Bahamas or a hike in the Alps to find it. Here it is and it won't cost you a cent - only a smile. Five Minutes to a New Reality, my feature article in this week's new issue of Breslev Israel web magazine, will surely be a relaxing game-changer for you. Enjoy it!

Our esteemed and beloved teacher and spiritual guide Rabbi Shalom Arush explains Why the Three Weeks.  He also shows us how to estimate the true value of anything in Level of Difficulty.

If you didn't see It's not a Cholent, the article about parents meddling in their kids' marriages from last week, go back and see it. Meanwhile, Alizah Teitelbauem, whose stories and articles have appeared all over the Jewish World (Mishpocha, Ami, and Modia - just to name a few), is back this week with Follow the Script, some really decent marital advice.

Now, fasten your seat belt. Racheli Reckles has an earth-shaking announcement to make in Don't Fear the Ride. Racheli, we pray for the happiness and success of you and your family...

Self-Confidence: Triple Your Potential

Believe
People want to accomplish things, but there bodies won't let them. Why?

  1. They don't eat the proper foods in quality and quantity.
  2. They don't exercise.
  3. They're not confident in their ability to achieve what they want.

By the same token, people want to accomplish things, but there minds won't let them. Why?

  1. They lack the desire.
  2. They lack the dedication.
  3. They're not confident in their ability to achieve what they want.

We see that lack of a good diet and lack of proper exercise hold the body back, while lack of desire and lack of dedication create obstacles in the mind that prevent people from accomplishing.

We also see that lack of self-confidence is Public Enemy #1 that gets in the way of both mind and body. For the moment, let's put the subjects of  diet, exercise, desire and dedication aside, for our sages teach that if you try to grab too much, you end up grabbing nothing. Yet, once we attain self-confidence, diet, exercise, desire and dedication will all fall into place.

You'd love to have self-confidence, wouldn't you? It's simpler and easier than you think. See Self-Confidence in 5 Minutes, my feature article in this week's new issue of Breslev Israel web magazine.

Does He/She Really Love Me?

Flower and Bfly
According to the questions I get in the month of June, this is international matchmaking month. In the Jewish World, it's like rush season for the shadchanim, the matchmakers. People are trying to find a mate before everyone disappears in different directions for the summer. What's more, if they don't get engaged really soon, they'll have to delay the wedding until after the High Holidays, a minimum of four months from now. Not everyone is willing to wait that long...

Recently, many young people as well as those in their second go-around, have been telling me about prospective matches that they've been dating, yet they don't yet have "clarity," the famous term for not knowing if this is their bashert (intended) or not. The other side is pressing to tie the knot, even declaring that they love you. How do you know if this is true or not? Maybe it's just Hollywood-style infatuation, which is not love but mere lust? How do you get clarity?

Clarity is only five minutes away. Read my feature article in this week's fresh issue of Breslev Israel web magazine, 5-Minute Test of True Love. Don't forget to invite me to the wedding...

Making Ends Meet

Open Hand
The most common problem that people suffer from is trying to make ends meet. A load of marital problems stem from faulty family finances. The Talmud is well aware of the havoc that money problems create in marriage. Our sages said that "Whenever a woman lacks wheat in her silo, she immediately screams." No wife enjoys looking at bare cupboards.

It's enough of a challenge trying to make ends meet without all the media and advertiser hands in your pocket, trying to take your money for things that you can live without. People are constantly exposed to brainwashing that they're not "in" if they don't have what the corporate pushers are trying to get consumers hooked on. Any corporate mogul will tell you that addiction and social pressure are great for business.

I take people's problems to heart. It breaks my heart to hear about couples having arguments, even breaking up, because of financial problems. That's why I wrote my feature article this week on Breslev Israel web magazine, Fix Family Finances in Five - all you need is five minutes to reboot financially. Don't miss the opportunity!

Love Yourself!

Go Higher
Would you really like to go higher?

Start by loving yourself. What, you don't like the idea?

Try asking a person if he loves himself: an alarming number of people will respond, "Hey, I'm no narcissist!"

The world is utterly confused about narcissism, a definitely undesirable trait, and loving yourself, which is a key to your happiness, success and emotional health in addition to being the vital element in your relationship with yourself, with others and with Hashem.

Narcissism is extreme self-centeredness and excessive (even exclusive) interest in oneself and one's physical appearance. The narcissist is far from happy, for he craves praise and admiration. He wants to be the center of the show and needs everyone to tell him how great he (or she) is. The narcissist is an emotional cripple, entirely dependent on others.

The person who loves himself is the exact opposite and entirely independent. Like the Simple One in Rebbe Nachman's tale of "The Clever and the Simple", the individual doesn't need any outside reinforcement. He's happy with himself, no matter how seemingly unsuccessful or limited he might be.

Sure, we all want to grow and be better, but we can't make real progress until we love ourselves. Why? If we don't love ourselves, we won't be able to love anyone else. A person who doesn't love himself is never satisfied with himself, with anyone around him or with Hashem even!

If you want to be happy right now, and not wait until you become rich, get elected to the Senate or find the spouse of your dreams, then you must learn to love yourself. If you wait for the dream to materialize, you'll find that even then, you won't be truly happy, because loving yourself doesn't depend on that dream coming true either.

Here's how to love yourself in a few easy steps that take no more than five minutes...
