pidyon nefesh (redemption of the soul), refers to the redeeming of a person from the suffering he is going through. Through the giving of a pidyon to an appropriate person, it is possible to exchange one’s suffering on to the redemption money.
The word pidyon is usually translated as “redemption,” referring to an exchange, whereby one exchanges money for something else.
Pidyon Nefesh is a very special and powerful prayer and blessing that has the spiritual strength of a sacrifice in the Bet Hamikdash to atone for sin and to mitigate severe judgments.
Rebbe Nachman of Breslev says
that Pidyon Nefesh is the “sweetening”, or mitigation of harsh decrees and serves as a salvation from any trouble, for the main cure and solution of sickness is the pidyon (see Likutei Moharan II:3).
One of the greatest ways to nullify harsh decrees and gain greater “mazal” (fortune) for health, livelihood and general success is to conduct a “pideyon nefesh.” The advantage of this method of healing is that it does not target a specific difficulty necessarily but encompasses one’s entire body from head to toe. There were people who conducted a “pideyon nefesh” and later reported that it corrected other even more difficult situations.
The bigger and more pious the tzaddik, the more effective the “pidyon”, which literally means “redemption”, where one’s money is literally a sacrifice for one’s body and soul. The pidyon money “redeems” the nefesh, or soul, in other words, “Pidyon Nefesh.” This is used when a major salvation is needed, such as in the case of a dangerous illness, a severe court case, or as a rescue from trouble or danger.
Any amount is acceptable, but for a Pidyon to be especially effective, one should give with dedication. One cannot hope for a major salvation without giving to the limits of one’s capability. We might just mention that all the above applies equally to Jew and non-Jew alike.
Any amount is acceptable with a miniumum of 160NIS or $45 or equivalent, but for a Pidyon to be especially effective, one should give with dedication. One cannot hope for a major salvation without giving to the limits of one’s capability.

“Behold, we found this in the handwriting of Rabbeinu, of blessed memory, and it is the heads of paragraphs from the concept of pidyon (see Likutei Moharan 180) with a short prayer at its end, and it is fitting to offer it here.” [In later sefarim printings the pidyon is added at the end of Likutei Tefilot Vol. I or in the front of Odesser edition sefarim]:
[The donor who is giving the pidyon money to charity]
puts his hands on the money and says:
Maot,ve et Ha yekom asher be ragleyhem
Tzedek Yikraeo le raglo,Tzedek malchota kadisha,Dina de malchota dina.
Shoresh a dinin bina,Ani bina li gvora,ein a din nimtak ela be shorsho.
Shlosha yadaim ba bina.
Gimel peadmim yad gimatria shem shel Mem Bet.
Mem Bet shebayetzira shem shel ana be koah.
Mem bet shebabria shnei peamim eheye
Mem bet shebaztilot havaia pashot bimloeo u-Milui De Milui.
and then say this little prayer:
“May it be before you (g-d) that the harsh judgement will be cut off from me (Say your name) by the supreme wonder which is complete and simple.
and let all my evil deeds be wiped off so i can start a new. Amen.”
And then say this:
“May it be Your Will that the hard decrees and forces should be sweetened off of [Person son of Person] through an exalted wonder, which is great kindnesses and complete simple compassions with no mix of harsh decree at all. Amen.”

Pidyon sweetens harsh decress, and it saves from all afflictions, because healings is mainly via pidyon speficically, because “v’rapo yerapeh/heals completely” [Ex. 21:19] (with 2 added for the words) is gematria of “pidyon Nefesh” (LM 2 #3).
[LM 180 explains one should be careful to not be stingy, so that the dinim (since money is like dinim) should not stay by him, and one needs “extra chochmah” for this, to know how much one needs to give so the dinim do not stay by him. See elsewhere (LE Pidyon #4) where Rabeinu says one should regularly make a pidyons even if he has no sickness or affliction in his house, so that he should not come to affliction or sickness, God forbid.]
