Spirituality in Your Work

Updated: Sep 15, 2023


I am going to digress a little from my usual posts on skin and skin health care and talk about spirituality. I say a little because, bottom line, no matter what your line of work, a large percent of how you work involves spirituality and the way you balance your inner-self or the way you operate, which ultimately effects your work, the products/services you sell and the people you work with.


If you have read my previous posts, you know that I aspire to a holistic and natural way of life. Throughout the years, I have found that most prominent religions and philosophies have a common denominator in energy levels and how they work together. For example, in both Kabalistic and Transcendental meditations, there are ten spheres of influences or Chakras. Generally the top three spheres/energy levels are Devine sourced or initiated and the lower seven are Devine sourced in the corporeal/animalistic soul energy triggers or levels. It is here (the lower 7 spheres) that we as humans need to deal with and create a balance. This subject is to deep to be covered in this short blog. For those who are interested in pursuing this subject deeper, there are many sources such as Chabad webpage or other sources which deal with self development such as Life and Leadership Coach Carolyn Mahboubi.

For the purpose of this blog, I will go over the basics, and then relate it to my journey in creating Nurish.


In Jewish mysticism of Kabala the ten sephirot or spheres of energy consists of the following levels:

  • Chochmah, Wisdom

  • Binah, understanding

  • Da'at, knowledge (between the eyebrows, central brain)

  • Chesed, mercy, kindness (right arm)

  • Gevourah, strength (left arm)

  • Tiferet, beauty (torso, heart)

  • Netzach, victory (right leg)

  • Hod, Glory, Splendor (left leg)

  • Yessod, foundation (sexual organ)

  • Malchut, kingship (mouth speech revelation, feet)

The highest energy lever or sephirah is called Keter (crown)which is not included here for many reasons which are out of the scope of this blog.


in Hinduism or Buddhism, there is the concept of Chakra (wheel or circle) which also has 5 or 7 (depending on the source) main realms of energy that needs to be in perfect harmony and balance for the physical and spiritual wellbeing of a person. The 7 Chakras are as follows:

  • Sahasrara, crown

  • Anja, between eyebrows

  • Vishuddha, throat

  • Anahata, heart

  • Manipura, navel

  • Svadhishthana, sexual organ

  • Muladhara, base of spine

In all aspects of spirituality, it is taught how each level works individually and the importance of their exponential combination. Individually, each level by themselves might not only be unproductive but detrimental to the "ultimate goal". For any process to be successful, there must be a balance between all different combinations of the 7 energy levels.


Now that we had a quick and a very simple review of what these energy levels are and the importance of balancing them spiritually and physically, how does that relate to my creation of Nurish Moisturizing Cream? The study and implementation of Biodynamics helped me in creating my formulation, which is made of Aloe leaf juice (an aqueous phase) and natural skin loving oils (oil phase) without the use of any synthetic or non-natural emulsifiers and chemicals. Oils and water (Aloe Juice leaf) living together in balance and harmony. Simply, Biodynamics is the balancing of the ten Sephirot/Chakras in nature!


Be well, be healthy, be wealthy and don't forget to take care of your skin, because your skin loves you, protects you and surrounds you to create a "vessel" whereby all these alchemy can happen.
