In the mid 1990,s I was interested in the Hermetic Qabbalah,- the tree of life is the Ancient Jewish traditional path to spiritual wisdom, the picture above depicts the tree of life , which is a physical blueprint plan used in the teachings & understanding of this occult work.
In the 1800,s Eliphas Levy published “The Mysteries of the Qabbalah” a book describing the relationship of the 22 cards of the Major Arcana in the Tarot Deck with the 22 paths of meditation work used in the practice of what is commonly known as “path working”..these 22 paths are referred to as “the path of the serpent” & represents the journey of the seeker .Just to clarify the the Major Arcana of the Tarot reflects something known as ” the fools journey” these cards tell the story of Humanities spiritual evolution & enlightenment.
The tree of life consists of 10 main spheres each of which is interconnected by the 22 paths of the serpent, each path when meditated upon with the correct spoken rituals leads to to the 10 main spheres, giving the seeker more understanding & spiritual wisdom of that particular sphere..The 10 spheres of understanding are from bottom 10 to Top 1.. are

Meditation on “The paths of the serpent” are an integral part of the entire learning & understanding of the Qabbalah & listed below is each paths linked Major Arcana Tarot
- High Priestess
- Wheel of Fortune
- Hanged Man
Once on the meditive paths you you begin to gain knowledge insights to the inner workings of the quabbalic system & teachings…if for instance you are meditating on path 1: & the colour of the path is shown to you as yellow, all other days of meditation on that path should remain yellow, till you reach the required length of days to reach it’s conclusion & wisdom , if suddenly the colour changes , a different (I will call it dark energy, )has distorted the teaching, & you know that any information given is not correct..you will need to resume the next day, only when you get the required (I think 21days) without any distortions is the path completed..so a minimum of 22x21days 462days..1year 4months is needed to get a basic working knowledge, but improvements do gradually happen in your life & awareness.
This is really only limited information on the workings & understanding of this wonderful ,complex eseotric , spiritual journey ..of an ancient mystery teaching ..I t took.me about 18 months to complete my personal journey of “the path of the serpent”..& for me that was enough , I knew it was time for me to move in another direction….
