Explore the Magic and Mystery of Tree of Life

The beauty of the Tree of Life reveals itself through its versatility.   This magical and mystical tool truly offers something for everyone to enjoy, explore and learn from.  It doesn’t align itself with any particular religion or faith and yet, at the same time, encompasses all aspects of spirituality and recognises the worth in all traditions and beliefs.  The Tree of Life is more of a psychological tool and guide that helps to open our eyes and hearts to the bigger spiritual picture that we all play a part in.   Everyone represents a piece of the jigsaw of life.  Everyone has a role and function to perform this lifetime - its wheels within wheel, cogs within cogs.  No function is greater or lesser than any other - they are all vital in helping humanity evolve, and understand, the essence of creation.

For more information on discovering how to live the life that is right for you take a look at our websites:  The Order of the White Lion and Isis Qabalah Tuition.

The teachings of the practical Qabalah are mapped out on the Tree of Life.  To aid understanding of this ancient, yet timeless, wisdom there is a complete series of Practical Qabalah workbooks available to help you on your journey to enlightenment and creative fulfilment.

As with all things the best place to start exploring the Tree of Life is at the beginning and the sephirah of the earth plane - Malkuth the Kingdom.

Fate or Destiny?

Destiny is what we are destined to do this lifetime whether we are consciously aware of it or not.  It is what we have decided for ourselves before we were born, and the path we have chosen to walk.  Destiny could be described as our own personal star; our own personal sun around which our life revolves.  It is the direction our soul is guiding us towards and for that to happen we must be a willing vehicle.

So, if Destiny is what we are here on earth to achieve .... what then, is Fate?

Everything in Universe is Energy .....

Everything in the universe is energy. Angels, archangels and elemental beings are also energy. Over the aeons of time, to help identify and relate to them, man has built imagery around them. 

The archangel of Malkuth - on the Tree of Life - is Sandalphon. 

Sandalphon is the Guardian of Humanity. In Malkuth, Sandalphon will show us a drawing board upon which the design behind our existence and manifestation is laid out - the design of the Great Plan for Humanity.

Malkuth workbook is available from The Order of the White Lion and Amazon

The Tree of Life - A Personal Perspective coping with loss

Today is the 1st October and when I awoke this morning it was pouring with rain. The grey sky matched my mood - dull and heavy with tears. Last night I lost my beloved dog. He was nearly 15 and had been my constant companion from the age of 7 weeks. Of course it was on the cards - but I wasn't ready to lose my gorgeous boy. The choice was not mine so today is a day of grief and coming to terms with my loss. 

A few hours later - red-eyed and emotionally drained - I turn to the same spiritual tool that I have used many, many times when I needed something to help me accept and handle difficult times, the Tree of Life. 

To those familiar with my youtube videos and Isis website will be aware of how I began studying the practical Qabalah and Tree of Life many years ago.  I never set out to explore spiritual matters - I just wanted a bit of a hobby and thought Astrology might be interesting - and yet all these years later I can say, hand on heart, it is the only thing that throws light into the dark and doubting corners of my mind when life feels overwhelming. 

Problems still need to be resolved and grief will always have to run its course but the ancient teachings never, ever fail to lift me.  They bring a sense of peace and help take away feelings of futility. 

It is because of how the Tree of Life consistently helps me that I had the idea of putting the practical Qabalah workbooks together.  I wanted others to have the same opportunity as me to use this wonderful tool as a means of making sense of life and our purpose within it. 

I was one of the lucky ones to have been taught by Jenni Shell at the Mystery (and Qabalistic) School of Maat.  There were thousands of us, and I am sure they would agree that the time we spent studying was incredibly special.  When Maat closed its doors and evolved into The Order of the White Lion I felt convinced that I had to do something to make these teachings available to a wider audience. 

There is no point in studying any kind of spiritual doctrine unless it can be put to practical use, and the Qabalistic Tree of Life works for me.

This morning there are candles and incense burning and a meditation playing quietly in the background and I thought the proof is in the pudding.  If I can take what I have learnt and put it into practice when I am feeling like this then it must be worth sharing.

The rain has long gone and the sun is shining and warm.  

It is difficult to find anything positive about losing someone or something you love, but perhaps if I can point the way and help another person to find some comfort using this spiritual tool then it is a little bit of light shining through an otherwise dark day for me.

Which Spiritual Path to Choose?

With so many spiritual options to choose from, how do you know which path is right for You?

The Right Path for You will ultimately lead to happiness, fulfilment and peace. It is the path that is naturally tailored to suit the individual, and in line with the Spiritual Will.

The Ancient Wisdom of Qabalah is one option to explore.  The teachings can help us to recognise the needs of our personality and understand the direction the soul is trying to guide us towards to fulfil the spiritual desire. 

The soul is the mediating force between the Will of the Personality and the Will of the Spirit.

Our soul wants us to live the life that is right for us.

The recent explosion of interest in television programmes surrounding spiritual beings and the Astral Planes has led to a growing curiosity in the spirit world and there now seems to be more acceptance that life goes on, and our journey continues despite the death of the physical body.

So, if life goes on - what happens after death?

Qabalah can help us in our search to find answers and help us to understand Why We are Here and What happens to us after we physically die.

The ancient teachings of Qabalah pre-date religion and yet they embrace all faiths, traditions and beliefs, recognising the value that each has to offer. As we progress with the teachings, we peel back the layers of pre-conditioning and start to find our own Truths and focus on what we think rather than adopt the thoughts of others.

Qabalah takes us far beyond the Astral realms of "Is There Anyone There"?  The teachings guide us towards the bigger, and infinitely more exciting spiritual picture. 

The teachings of the Qabalah are mapped out on the Qabalistic Tree of Life. The Tree is a tool that we can use in everyday life.  It is like a road map that guides us as we travel through one area of life into another. Always the emphasis with Qabalah is on walking a path that is right for you however, finding a way to get started on that path can often be the first hurdle. With so many faiths, beliefs and religions all purporting to help us on our journey it can be a little bewildering particularly to those just starting out.

The practical Qabalah offers a down to earth approach to raising spiritual awareness and initially begins by helping us to find more effective ways of managing our life and handling everyday situations, events and people. The journey starts at a very basic level and includes looking at our attitude towards money.

There are no rights or wrongs.  However many people may find themselves as slaves to money rather than being in control of this energy of the Earth Plane.

Money is our means of exchange and our ability to manage it can be one of the most difficult challenges we face.

For some though, perhaps it is not the energy of the Earth Plane that proves to be the most challenging. Perhaps instead, it is the energy of the emotional plane and getting caught up in repetitive cycles of behaviour and negative habit patterns.

The journey ascending the Tree of Life gradually takes us deeper and deeper into all the different aspects within our life and personality.  It becomes incredibly exciting to discover more about who we really are, how we think and what we want.

As the teachings progress they help us to understand the purpose of our incarnation, the process of dying as well as explain how we prepare for the next life.

The quest for spiritual enlightenment is continuous and it is easy to get distracted and lose our thread but the route mapped out on the Tree of Life provides us with a solid structure from which to work so our effort is less likely to dissipate and lose momentum. 

There is order throughout the universe; throughout the teachings, and that order can be applied very simply in a practical way in our everyday lives.

Many people when first introduced to the teachings are surprised by the simplicity of it all and impressed at how relevant and useful they are. As our awareness grows so we start to find better ways of living that work for us and approach life with fresh eyes and healthier attitudes. It is never about judgements or making yourself fit into a shape you don't want. It is about freedom of choice and educated decisions.

There is no point in trying to be something you are not. You will get exhausted with all the effort that takes, besides the Qabalah is about being something that You Are. So you don't have to try to mould yourself into a shape that simply does not fit.

We are all different. We are all at a different level of evolvement.  We each have a different agenda and take on life, and what the Qabalah does is to get us to look at all those different aspects within ourselves and understand where we need to make adjustments to improve and find happiness as a way of life. It is about being self-sufficient. Able to heal and motivate Self, and not be reliant on others or the opinions of others.

Sometimes, when it comes to looking at ourselves we can't always see the woods for the trees but the Qabalah has a wonderful way of drawing things towards us that we need to look at and then we have the choice of doing something about it, or not.

So, in answer to the earlier question: "Is there anyone there?"

Remind yourself that: Yes .......... there is.

There is a far bigger world beyond the veil of our earthly plane - watching, and waiting for humanity to recognise. Filled with energies the same as you and me, a combination of less evolved and more advanced personalities, that are continuing their journey through life, but on the other side.  On another level of existence.
