The Tree of Life Alignment uses the Qabala system for connecting to your higher self and for reconnecting with the Divine Spirit. Many have called the Qabala… the Yoga of the West. Qabala is not a religion per se. Qabala is defined as the secret, mystical, magical, philosophical and religious teaching developed by Jewish scholars. The way that you are enlightened is through gnosis and mystical illumination. Qabala— the world’s oldest body of spiritual wisdom — contains the long hidden keys to the secrets of the universe. It‘s mission is to lift the veil between worlds and bring clarity, understanding, and wisdom to our lives by tuning into our Creator.
Traditionally there are three techniques for beginning to work with the energies in the Qabala. These processes not only awaken Cosmic Energies, but strengthen and protect them. The first to use is the Qabalistic Cross.The second is the Middle Pillar and third is the Flaming Sword. These Attunements use the transformational energies of Qabala to expand consciousness and awaken a higher realization. They tap into the system that Christ used to awaken his disciples.

The Qabalistic Cross is the most basic and fundamental practice in Qabalah. It is used to draw down the power of the spirit from above into the mind and body of the Qabalist, as an act of devotion, to centre oneself and strengthen balance and composure, and to align ones Will with a higher purpose. If you are new to practical Qabalah you should practice this exercise each day for at least a week (preferably more) before moving on to the next stage.
It can be used on its own as a brief form of prayer / meditation, or to draw strength from the divine and empower an action; In this regard it can be found in a degraded form within popular Catholic culture. More commonly, however, it is used as a component of larger rituals. There are two slightly different forms of the Qabalisitic Cross, one of which is used at the beginning of the ritual to draw down power and invoke the power of the spirit (etc.) and the other which is used at the end of the ritual which includes an acknowledgement that the power raised and used during the ritual does not in truth belong to the Qabalist but to the Divine itself. The following Hebrew and Enochian words are part of the Lords Prayer and are recited to form the Qabalistic Cross. They are part of the wisdom Jesus passed on to his followers.
ATEH ZAH = Thine is
MALKUTH ONDOH=The Kingdom
VE-GEBURAH MIH= and the Power
VE-GEDULAH BUZD= and the Glory
LE-OLAM PAID = Forever
Vibrate the words slowly and strongly.
- Stand facing East, with your feet together and your arms at your side. Take several deep breathes.
- Visualize a glowing sphere of white fire, about ten inches in diameter, forming approximately 6 inches above the top of your head. Take time for this image to form clearly in your imagination. This sphere symbolizes the Source of all Created Being.
- With your thumb (Spirit), your Index finger( Fire) and the middle finger (Earth) together ... raise your hand, place the tips of your fingers into this sphere of light, pull the light downward and touch your forehead, and slowly intone the Hebrew and Enochian word :
Ateh (ah-Toh) Zah (Zod-ah) God is within me
meaning "Thou art within us …" and acknowledges the Being of God. Give equal emphasis to each syllable and visualize the vibration going forth into the universe.
- Drawing the hand with the joined thumb and fingers downward from your forehead, as if you are drawing down the light of God, draw down the light ... straight down through your body till it reaches the region of your feet. (Try to imagine that your body is semi-transparent and that you can see the line of light moving down through yourself.)
- Visualize another sphere of radiant white light forming around your feet to the height of your ankles,
- Now touch your solar plexus and vibrate the Hebrew and Enochian words;
Malkuth (Mahl-Kuth) Ondoh (oh-en-doh) the Kingdom
means "The Kingdom," and the sphere at your feet symbolizes you are the bridge between the Upper and Lower Worlds. Visualize the light extending downward to infinity
- Place both hands at your sides while visualizing the vertical, upright line of the Cross. You have now created a beam of universal energy that extends through you in two directions to infinity. Above and Below
- Bring your right hand with the thumb and fingers joined to the right shoulder and tone the Hebrew and Enochian words
ve Geburah (Veh-Geh-Bur-Ah) MIH (mee-heh)
- As you touch your shoulder see a crystalline ball of light form and send a ray of light into infinity at your right
- Move the thumb and fingers from the right shoulder across the chest to see another crystalline ball of light form and send ray of light out to infinity on your left and intone the Hebrew and Enochian words:
ve Gedullah(Veh-Geh-Du-Lah) BUZD (booz-deh)
- Visualize the horizontal line of light moving through your chest intersecting with the vertical line of the Cross right in the center of your chest.
- At the point where the two lines intersect, visualize a glowing sphere of yellowish-golden light forming. This symbolizes Enlightened Consciousness, that perfectly balances influences from Above and Below, and from the left and right
- This golden sphere is at the same level as your higher heart or Daath Energy Center on the Tree of Life.
- Focus on the golden Daath (Knowledge) sphere at your higher heart and envision and chant the Fire Letter Mantra:
Fire Letter Mantra= Dalet Ayin Tav
See this three letter combination clearly and vividly in your imagination, and watch as its light radiates from within you to surround you and illumine the room in which you stand.

|| Flaming Sword Attunement
- Extension of middle pillar exercise that brings in Divine qualities of God: wisdom, understanding, compassion, strength, mercy, love, power, and manifestation
- Energy zig-zag course down the Tree of Life has traditionally been called ‘The Lightning Flash.
- Enhances telepathic abilities
- Manifests spiritual principles and aligns to higher path and purpose
The Attunement of “The Flashing Sword” is among one of the most common exercises known to Qabalists. It is commonly used for learning the basics of the Tree of Life and for releasing and grounding the “Secret Fire” or Kundalini in each of us.
The Flashing Sword represents the descent of Divine energy during the act of creation. After this event the energy begins to rise back again, to the Divine and is called “The Rising Serpent”. These two exercises are symbolic of the entire creative process and are well known to hermetic students.
When we visualize this process of creation, we become the creator and created. The Lightning Flash of creation runs through us and transmutes our energy field. When this energy returns to the Divine, are vibrational seed pattern is lifted slightly higher on the Path of Return. During this process our psychic centers, related to the spheres on the Tree, are awakened and brought into harmony with each other, and we become the Adam Kadmon, or Original Human, before the so-called “Fall”.
