As with most things in life, nothing should be believed until it is proven by practice…

The Kabbalistic Tree of Life has opened up many new doors and paths into my worlds of esoteric knowledge. Using the template of the Tree of Life, I have an upgraded perception of all that is to follow in my journey. Using just the concepts alone would enhance anyone’s view of the world.

After reading several of Haleyi’s Kabbalistic books, I found the desire to reread them; after which, the understanding and potentiality deepen. I now fully grasp the inference of applying the Tree of Life to anything I want to analyze and or improve upon.

The following information is not only for your reading pleasure. It contains material that will be modified and referenced in my continuing journey up the ladder…


Functions (Objective)
Paths (Subjective)
Negative Existence
The Zodiac
