Covering The Hair, Changing the Aura

Picture: Headcoverings by Devorah

I've had this post in draft for a long time now, and was inspired to publish it after reading Human Aura
where we can actually see a photo of the affect that it has - just as tefillin does for men. I've said this to people many times, but they didn't seem to understand, however a picture paints a thousand words, so check out the Human Aura blogpost and see for yourself......and if you are a spiritual person and that alone doesn't make you want to commit to covering your hair, I don't know what will !

Here are some extracts from letters of the Lubavitcher Rebbe regarding [married] women covering their hair.

It is an explicit law -- and not only a custom -- of the Torah that a [married] woman is to cover her hair, "kissui harosh". Moreover, from the great reward received for performing this law, one can apprehend that there is great import to fulfilling this law....

As the Zohar states in Parshas Nasso, [quoted in Mishnah Berurah, Laws of Kerias Shema, Chapter 75] and I choose to quote only the blessings mentioned there, omitting the negative aspects resulting from failure to comply with this law:

"Her children will be superior to other children; moreover, her husband will be blessed with all blessings, blessings of above and blessings of below, with wealth, with children and grandchildren, etc."

[Igros Kodesh, Vol. XXIII, pp. 345-346]

Much more can be found at Sichos in English
P.S. You may think that the last quote about being blessed and having superior children is an exaggeration, but I can tell you that it is NOT.  Even if you look at some women who do cover their hair, and who appear to have troublesome lives/children/lack of money.... just imagine how much worse it could have been... things are not always as they seem, and I guarantee that any step towards increasing modesty [of which hair covering is no doubt one of the hardest things to do] will bring you extra blessings in your life.

It is worth noting that men also cover their hair with a talis when we daven with nine other men. So we have to be in this particular situation, davening in a minyan with tefillin, to rise to the level of married women who have this aura all the time. It helps one to put one's wife on a pedestal by knowing this.

Dov Bar-Leib said...

In short a husband who knows his place in a marriage understands what he has to do in order to reach the madreigah (or rise even higher than) where his wife is holding all the time.

"Isha k'sheira ATERET ba'alah"...goes the saying.
A "kosher" wife is the CROWNING glory of her husbands!

The aura becomes white with the scarf. with the wig it becomes cloudy. an article said "Putting on a wig gave off a cloudy aura (interference) as would an improper tefillin interferes with the mind, negative impact. But when the woman puts on a tichel (scarf), the aura changes towards perfection" - tzniut magazine

I just listened to a shiur by Rabbi Simon Jacobson, where he explains in great detail why women cover their hair, and why the Lubavitcher Rebbe preferred wigs over scarves. click here to listen
