Default Tree vs Qlippoth

Hello Iza, may I ask of the results you gathered from the sephiroth as far as what the intent was? Like was it the intent to learn of certain truths or merely to gain a certain thing?
My second question is how was the qliphoth different in comparison? I ask you these things because I have only been attracted to the sephiroth thus far.

Great question!

While most occulists seem to agree on what the Sephiroth are like, it seems like nothing but disagreement over what exactly the Qliphoth is and what it contains--that is the nature of it. It is even more deeply personal than the Sephiroth are as they deal with unpleasant or repressed aspects of that Sephira.

When I travel the Sephiroth, I also travel the paths up and down. I find this works out "kinks" in my energy without ever having to directly work with the Qliphoth. As fun as the Qliphoth can be, I personally find it a bottomless pit of issues ("Stoop not down unto the Darkly-Splendid World").

I've found it healthier and more empowering to work up and down the Sephiroth through the paths as they have complementary energies. Remember, the Minutum Mundum was extremely important to the Golden Dawn as well.

Working with just the Sephiroth is fine, and I find many people start with Sephiroth before they get to the paths (sometimes many years later). I do find the energy/interplay between the polarities of the Sephiroth vs. the paths to be extremely...magickal.
