comment Ari Zal and Sefira
You are claiming that this stringency further extends to all the practices of mourning, which is what I am taking issue with. I have no problem saying that the Arizal maintained that mourning must be observed throughout the 49 days of Sefira, but that is a separate thing from his opposition to haircuts.

@RabbiMichaelTzadok As I explained in my answer, if it was related to mourning it would not apply on Lag Beomer when according to the Arizal we do not observe any customs of mourning.

comment Ari Zal and Sefira
Here, from the Minchas Elazar (4:60): "Even though the Arizal forbade haircuts on Lag B'Omer, this is only for adults.. for the Arizal himself brought his son to Meron on Lag B'Omer for a haircut.."

But he wouldn't cut his own hair "for any reason", as you quoted in your answer. I believe that upsherin is an exception.

but does not tell him he should not be mourning still after the Omer. - Why should he be mourning after the Omer?

comment Ari Zal and Sefira
To clarify, there is certainly Halachic basis for observing the mourning customs throughout the period of Pesach to Shavous. However, the custom of not cutting hair based on the Arizal is clearly independent of that.

comment Ari Zal and Sefira
As you noted, the Ari rebuked his disciple for mourning on Lag B'Omer. Yet he would not cut hair on Lag B'Omer. How can you say the Ari's position on not cutting hair extends to all mourning customs?

OK, here's a link to the text in the print you are refering to. Can you tell me which line extends this to mourning customs besides haircuts?

comment Segulot for finding a Shidduch
Rochel, in light of recent edits to your question to make it more suitable for this forum, can I confirm what the intention of your question is? Are you asking for "segulos" that can help find a shidduch, or would you prefer practical advice?
