A Spiritual Journey in Stages

The mystical teachings of Qabalah are mapped out on the Tree of Life. The Tree of Life is like a road map and wherever you may find yourself in life - whatever the situation - you can 'map' it on the Tree. By incorporating the teachings of Qabalah you can help yourself find answers to life's challenges and discover better, more effective ways of living your life in line with the true nature of who you are, and developing creative power that can be used to help others.


The spiritual journey ascending the Tree of Life is broken down into stages:

1. Preparation (for the journey); 2. Beginning; 3. Travelling; 4. Arriving

The sphere of Malkuth represents the physical, material plane and it is through the Temple of Malkuth that the rest of the Tree of Life is accessed.

For more information on how to get started with Qabalah and the Tree of Life please visit The Order of the White Lion website. 


A complete series of workbooks is now available in paperback, Kindle and pdf format.

Power of Subconscious Mind



A lot of emphasis in the early stages of Qabalah focuses on the state of the subconscious and exploring how the conscious, subconscious and higher mind work together. 

The journey exploring Qabalah often begins with Malkuth on the Tree of Life. Malkuth represents our physical body as well as the private world we have created for ourselves. In Malkuth we become aware of how we prioritise and manage our life.  After Malkuth the next sphere to explore is Yesod.

Yesod represents our subconscious which governs our automatic emotional reactions and responses which, in turn, affect the way we behave and operate on the Earth plane. 

The power of the subconscious is awesome. The mystical teachings of Qabalah can help us to rein in that power and break free from negative preconditioning, and remain calm and emotionally in balance rather than being controlled by subconscious triggers.

Role of the Doorkeeper - Qabalah basics

As well as each of us having our own personal spirit guide that remains in attendance throughout our life, we also have a doorkeeper that tries to ensure the doorway between the conscious, and subconscious, mind is guarded. The practical Qabalah Hod workbook explains the role our doorkeeper plays in our everyday life as Protector of our Mind.  Further study of the Tree of Life reveals how we can tell the difference between the different guides available to help us.

Introduction to Spirit Guides - Qabalah basics

This Practical Qabalah introduction to Spirit Guides explores what happens to us when we die and who these spiritual beings are that reside in the Astral Worlds. 

Our world - the physical plane - is the world of manifestation, where our flesh and blood body resides. When our physical body dies the spiritual journey continues, on the other side.  This part of the journey enables us to reflect on our past life and prepare for the next incarnation. There are many different types of guide, and of different levels of evolvement. Each of us on the Earth Plane has an Astral Guide that is at the same level of evolvement as us, and who is there to help and guide us in our day to day life. The mystical teachings of the Qabalah - mapped out on the Tree of Life - can help strengthen the connection with these spirit guides and the Astral Worlds.

More information on Yesod - the sephirah that connects us to the Astral worlds and Personal Spirit Guides - can be found in the Yesod workbook.  These workbooks are designed for beginners and take the student on a journey of discovery ascending the Tree of Life.

Practical Qabalah Books - Beginners Guide


The Order of the White Lion and Isis Tuition have produced a series of workbooks exploring the Qabalistic Tree of Life.  These workbooks have been specifically designed to help those who wish to make a difference to their life.  They make no promises of quick fixes.  Instead the Workbooks try to explain - in simple and practical terms - why certain things happen to us, and how we can take more control over our lives rather than be swept along by events and circumstances. 

To help you decide if these books may be of use to you, please read the reviews and find out what others have to say.

When Life gets you Down - Overcoming Despondency ....


Without doubt the world we live in is a mixture of different personalities, all at various levels of evolvement. 

We all have our own slant on life and what we consider to be acceptable and unacceptable behaviour.  

One of the biggest challenges we face is being able to get along with others.  Everyone has different karma, different things to experience on the Earth Plane, and for that reason we must remember not to make sweeping judgements on others.  There may be more to the situation than we are aware.  A bigger picture maybe? 

It can be very difficult sometimes to rise above the pettiness and greed of others, and overcome feelings of being hurt and let down, but the alternative is to allow ourselves to become swamped by feelings of futility:

 What’s the Point?

So, we have to find a way of accepting that sometimes others will behave in a way that may leave its mark and rather than let this drag you down, remind yourself that you have a choice in how you choose to deal with it.  

Are you going to allow the behaviour of others  to affect  your Self Worth?

Are you going to allow the behaviour of others to affect your Happiness?

The next time something happens that upsets or disappoints you, before you react ask yourself what it is that you would like to happen.  And then consider if the way you propose to respond is likely to bring you closer to achieving the desired outcome.

Always check your motive.  

What is your motive behind your Action?  

What do you Intend to Happen?

We cannot control what others say or do.  We can hope our friendship, decency or love will be reciprocated but we cannot expect.  Unconditional love means No Strings Attached, so perhaps if a relationship is not going the way we would like then we have the right to withdraw to protect ourselves and others from unproductive emotions, but we do not have the right to Judge. 

There is a greater Power far more qualified than us to stand in Judgement.

We often forget that Free Will means we always Have a Choice.  Karma is an accumulation of our choices both positive and negative.  At the end of our life our choices  count.  They are taken into consideration and form the foundation upon which future lives are formulated. 

Choices we make that are governed by over sensitivity and acute insecurity may be things we need to address - it's not just the obvious traits like cruelty and greed that may be stalling our growth. 

Perhaps the actions of others are providing us with an opportunity to experience and deal with something that we need to learn from and overcome.

The ancient teachings of Qabalah can be explored using the Tree of Life.  The sephiroth on the Tree of Life highlight aspects within our personality that perhaps we are not aware of.  Each sephirah has a vice and virtue.  The vices are what trip us up.  The virtues are what we are aspiring to achieve.  The Qabalistic Tree of Life offers really practical and simple guidance if we are prepared to look.

Let others get on with their own life.  Rest assured that if there is a lesson they need to experience then so be it.  It is not for us to decide what others need to learn. We must only focus on our own life, our own experiences and judge only ourselves in any given situation.  It is our Attitude that holds the key and opens the door to moving forward.  We are all each others Teacher.  We can all learn from one another.  Even if all we learn from someone else is How not to Behave

The series of workbooks produced by the Order of the White Lion and Isis Tuition focus very much on handling the real issues of life and finding workable solutions to coping with things like disappointment.  The practical approach used in exploring this Ancient Wisdom can help us move forwards from what we often perceive to be  unfair, inconsiderate and selfish behaviour.
