Kabbalah's Connection to Magic
By Deborah Sexton
Many people have heard of the Kabbalah and some have even tried to study it a little. Most people don't understand it because it seems too complex, and give up trying to understand.
Out of all the Spiritual Magical systems, this one works
Kabbalah in it's self is not Magic, it just so happens that when you work with it, magic happens
The Kabbalah is about expanding our consciousness and getting back to the way we were meant to be. You know, before we forgot we were powerful divine beings
So see the magic that happens comes from within when we realize just how close to the image of Creator we really are
>From the Kabbalah point of view, there are ten levels of consciousness or spheres as they are called. We were created in the highest level but during the fall of man we spiraled downward and discovered the more physical levels of consciousness
Man's fall from His higher state began when He realized He was not only spirit but also a physical being. and catered to it. As time went by, He totally forgot about the spirit man and grew more and more aware of the physical. Soon man thought all He was is physical. The lower levels of consciousness began to grow and the higher levels began to shrink
So the Kabbalah opens us up to returning to this powerful mystical, divine person we are and does so by the expansion of our higher levels of consciousness.
When we begin the work of expanding these higher levels, our conscious and subconscious minds begin to grow and we become more and more aware of our divinity
After awhile we realize we are a spiritual being living inside a physical body and that in order to be whole we have to recognize that these two are one. That one is not more important than the other. Just different..We are duality.
But with this realization we must remain balanced Not too much spirit and not too much physical and centered in balance.
Without the spirit the physical could not exist just as without the physical the spirit could not exist (*at least there would be no awareness for either). All things are a part of and contain it's opposite and one can not exist without the other. As in example. On the extreme end of South, there is North. If you try to take away the South, it will remain and can not be taken away, at least not until you also do away with the North. They are part of each other and can not exist one without the other.
On the left side the tree of life Geburah is strength and might and can show vengeance and tearing down. On the right across from Geburah is Chesed, Chesed is about Mercy, peace and abundance and building up. These are the same just the extreme of each end.
In order to be balanced we must choose to remain somewhere in the middle of these two extremes while staying connected to the Christ consciousness known as Tiphireth.
Because we are magical, mystical beings, as we open up these forgotten levels of consciousness magic happens
*The five senses are needed to put information and experience into our spirit to make it aware
