This article uses a psychotherapy case example to demonstrate the therapeutic utility of the traditional Jewish concept of the inner voice of God for psychological and spiritual growth. Judaic concepts discussed and utilized as support material include the hasidic and kabbalistic concept of the spark of God within, teshuvah (repentance), and dream analysis. These concepts are related to the treatment of the case through object relations theory.
