The remedy for lust.. Rebbe Nachman revealed these 10 psalms to say in order to rectify the damage caused by past sins especially those related to sexual impurity: 16, 32, 41, 42, 59, 77, 90, 105, 137, 150.
Lustful desires are man's main test in life: they are sent as a challenge to refine us. When you are subjected to this test it puts you in a kind of "exile". You should cry out to God: scream and cry out to Him over and over again, like a woman in labor who cries out from the pain of her contractions. Seventy times she cries out ( Zohar III, 249b) . You must do likewise and cry out to God again and again until He takes pity and helps you to strengthen yourself and break your desire. New ideas and new perceptions will be born within you. Previously guarded secrets of Torah will now be unveiled for you. The greater your determination to with stand the trial, the greater the revelation you will receive in Torah and devotion to God. You will be able to see the seventy faces of the Torah.
The remedy for lustful desires is to say the words of the Shema, "Hear O Israel, HaShem our God, HaShem is One", together with the verse, "Blessed be the name of His glorious kingdom for ever and ever". The six Hebrew words of each of these two verses add up to twelve, corresponding to the twelve tribes of God. By saying these words you attach your soul to the twelve tribes and separate it from the "mixed multitude" that went up with the Children of Israel from Egypt ( Tikkuney Zohar , Introduction) . The mixed multitude derives from the "harlot woman", the "evil maid". This is the source of lustful desire, which is the root of all bad character traits.
When a person merely has one stray thought of lust or desire, it is sufficient to recite these two verses. However, some people are constantly plagued with lustful desires and find they cannot get rid of them. They must then bring themselves to tears when they take on the yoke of heaven: they should literally weep as they say the words "Hear O Israel" and "Blessed be the name of His glorious kingdom ".

“High” by Rachel Kann
...You are more than the
little bit of
consciousness sitting in
of your carbon-based human starship.
In fact, your entire physicality
with its gracious plenty of nerve endings
is actually the fleshly cockpit of your
This existence is just the tip
of an upside down iceberg
expanding ever higher and wider,
unraveling into unbearable beauty.
And that division between you and me?
Simply a persistent illusion,
a by-product of our feeble non-bumblebee eyes’
inability to perceive the atoms dancing!
It all seems so solid, so heavy,
and yes, there’s all this
this is mortality,
the beauty of duality,
the sweet severity of the material.
This is the way of our earthly playground.
You’ve got to get down
to get up.
if you don’t bend your knees,
how will you ever jump?
Oh, what a gift!
to go out—
which, according to quantum mechanics
and ancient sage’s wisdom—
is the same as going in,
to be able to put out our hands and spin,
to unfold mathematics
and bask in its tenacious elegance,

Today is the 17th day of the month of Tishrei, and the third day of the holiday of Succos. Today, the bi-annual mass Birkas Kohanim will take place at the Western Wall. The Priestly Blessing is an institution of the Jewish prayer services where the descendants of Aaron the High Priest give a blessing to the congregation. There are different customs as to the frequency of this custom in the diaspora, but in Israel it is done every morning.
In 1971, Rabbi Menachem Mendel Gafner established the national Birkas Kohanim on the first intermediate day of the holidays of Passover and Succos. Rabbi Gafner was a simple resident of Jerusalem who felt that Israel needed this extra blessing during the War of Attrition between the 6 Day War of 1967 and the Yom Kippur War on 1973. He encouraged as many Kohanim as he could get in touch with to come to the Western Wall for the morning services on one day to bestow the blessing.
The custom stuck. Today more than 45 years later more than 80,000 people will gather in the Old City of Jerusalem for the biannual event.
