The Kabbalah

The Tree of Life, or the Kabbalah, is a Kabbalistic a map of consciousness, a geometrical symbol of the complete universe, composed of ten spheres, called the Sephiroth, and 22 connecting paths. It is a diagrammatic representation of the thirty-two Paths of Wisdom, which relate to the number of times that the name of God was found in the Genesis.
The Kabbalists understood that the mysteries of life couldn’t be proved and for that reason they developed, through the combination of many elements of religion and mathematics, the kabalistic paths whose aid of understanding is to know oneself and the laws and forces of the Universe. The micro and  macrocosmic view of existence.

The 4 Worlds
The word Kabbalah means "to receive" and the core of this teaching relies on the fact that the spiritual and the physical worlds not isolated from each other, but closely linked. Beause of its high desire to receive, humanity represents not only the bridge between these two worlds, but it also carries the potential to fulfill their unification.

The Tree is a model of the template of the all world, a model of the Universe which carries within its own system of rules and laws. This ancient map teaches us that there are four levels or dimentions of reality: Atziluth, the world of Emanation, Briah, the world of Creation, Yetzirath, the world of Formation, and Assiah, the world of Action. All these levels contain the same essence, even if expressed with a different quality.

This means that all the things and happenings on one level are not only copied in the one below, but they must also have a counterpart in the worlds above. The kabbalistic statement "As above, so below" highlights the concept that everything we see in this world is only a reflection to something occurring beyond outward phenomena.
"In thirty-two mysterious paths of Wisdom did the Lord write...
He created His Universe by the three forms of expression:
Numbers, Letters, Words.
Ten innefable Sephirot and twenty-two basal letters"

Sepher Yetzirah

According to the kabbalistic teaching, the creation occured because of a withdrawal of the Light of the Creator. God manifested the Sephirot which are a sequence of ten energy fields which keep us protected from the full intensity of His Light. Each Sephirah has distinctive qualities, properties and lessons to be absorbed and mastered. The ten Sephirot are the manifestation of states of consciousness, and they act as transformers as we work with them.
The Kabbalah
The twenty-two Paths are related to the letters of the Hebrew alphabet, 22 Royal Roads that lead from one archetypal energy center (sphere or Sephirah) to another. The successful treading of any of these paths requires the harmonious blending of the forces represented by the two spheres it unites. Twelve of these paths correspond to the 12 Zodiac signs and the other 10 represent the heavenly bodies, the planets, that travel through the signs. Working with all the thirty-two Paths of Wisdom of the Tree of Life is representative of the journey we walk in life, a journey not only to understand ourselves but also any other process - energetic, emotional, mental - which is part of us.

Each line (or path) relates to a different Major Arcana Tarot Card, also known as Karmic or Trump cards, while in the Spheres or Sephirot, we find the Minor Arcana related to the four worlds.

The journey along the Tree is a very deep one because it teaches us how we can transform the different life experiences in opportunities to enrich our life and our soul. The sages of the Kabbalah tell us that we incarnated in the specific time and space that could give us the best chance at being the best we can be.

According to the teaching of the Tree of Life, we actually reunite with the Light when we emulate its sharing nature and we become the link between the physical and the spiritual world above. Sharing means receiving because as we start sharing, even if we might have the impression of giving something up, we create a flow of energy from the spiritual world that fills us up and we attract the infinite blessings of the Light. It teaches us to transform giving and receiving in a cause rather that the effect of our life choices. We cannot receive the Light unless we start sharing that Light.

Kabbalah is a practical guide for bringing unity and completion into our life, it provides the bridge to connect us to a concealed part of ourselves. By enhancing both the qualities of our daily life and the potential of our soul, it brings a new level of consciousness into our life awakening the best we can be. - Internet Partner
