A woman who's had trouble conceiving gets some helpful advice: ... the Kabbalah speaks of spiritual creatures who are created each time a husband and wife have relations—spiritual children, who are “real” even though they are not physical beings. When marital relations are done in accord with the Torah—when the husband and wife sanctify their marriage by keeping the laws of Taharas Hamishpacha (“family purity”)—the spiritual “children” they create are very elevated beings.
In other words, what? Be comforted in the knowledge that you have created lots of invisible children? Swell.
