I am replying to the answer for this question:
I understand that there is a concept of “Modaah” in the Halacha, where you can cancel some future actions you may do. The Ben ish Chai ZTL even has a daily מודעה to say to cancel bad thoughts….
What type of effect does it have on the thoughts? I thought that if one says the מודעה of the Ben Ish Chai everyday or at least a few times in their life, they won’t lose their mitzvot. Is that correct Rav?
Saying the modaah definitely helps to some degree, however exactly how much that I don’t know, as I don’t know how heaven calculates these things.
