Likutei Etzot (Compilations of Advice), Children 1-16 (end)

Children 1-16

1. Praying with power is a segula for children. (From Likutei Moharan I, 48)

2. A suka is a segula for children. (There^)

3. The Land of Israel is a segula for children. (There^)

4. Through the effort of drawing people closer to HaShem and to the true tzadikim, one merits children. (From Likutei Moharan I, 53)

5. When your marital relations are in holiness and you break your soul that lusts, that is, your animalistic soul, and it will be for you as if a demon forced you - through this you'll have thriving [healthy and living] children. (From Likutei Moharan I, 39)

6. You also must have your marital relations mainly on the night of the Sabbath on order that you'll have living and thriving children. (There^)

7. Through an evil eye you won't merit to have a male child. (From Likutei Moharan I, 54)

8. Through lashon hara one does not merit to have a male child. (There^)

9. A segula for sustained [healthy and living] offspring is for both the man and his wife to say before their marital relations the section [of Torah] "On the new moon...". (From Likutei Moharan I, 151)

10. Through praising and thanking HaShem, and also through learning halakhot - and even moreso if he merits making new insights into them, through this the birth comes easily. Also, through supporting learning by strengthening Torah scholars monetarily, through this the birth will be easy. (From Likutei Moharan II, 2)

11. A segula for a woman who gives birth in difficulty is to say "Mizmor of thanks..." (Psalm 100). (There^)

12. Another segula for a woman who gives birth in difficulty is to do a lot of [acts of] mercy, that is, to increase in [giving] charity and acts of mercy. (From Likutei Moharan II, 4)

13. One who does not have children should habituate himself to become joyous in the joy of commandments, and to learn Torah and do all the commandments with joy. [to the point that] the joy is so great that he dances as a result of the joy. Through this he'll merit children. (From Likutei Moharan II, 81)

14. Through faith one merits children. The numerical value of 'faith' [in Hebrew] is [the same as that of the word] 'children'. (From Sihot HaRan 34)

15. It is more of a segula for [one's] children to live by him and [for him] to be distant from them; that is, not to be very bound to them or to have fun [with them] all the time. [Rather,] only to not look upon them except with what is necessary to educate them in serving HaShem when they begin growing up, but not to amuse oneself with them too much. (From Sihot HaRan 59)

16. Through joy one is spared from death of [his] children, God forbid. (From Sihot HaRan 65)
