Qabalistic Cross

Subject: Qabalistic Cross

                           The Qabalistic Cross
The Qabalistic Cross is a visualization/prayer excercise based on the sign
of the cross.

   The cross is a a representation of two balanced lines of force
   meeting in a harmonious union.
   One line of force is from high to low, the flow of energy/life
   from the divine to the corporeal. In terms of the Sepher Yetzirah
   (Tree of Life), this is the middle pillar, flowing between Kether
   (the Crown) and Malkuth (the Kingdom). This channel flows through
   the center of the body, entering the crown of the skull and
   surging out through the soles of the feet into the core of the
   earth. This channel embodies the relationship between Divinity
   and Humanity.
   The other line of force is from side to side, balanced upon and
   perpendicular to the first channel. This energy is the
   relationship of each of us to one another, to the world around
   us. It embodies the concept of polarity. On the Tree of Life the
   sephirots of Chesed (Loving Kindness) and Geburah (Judgement) are
   invoked. These centers are often portrayed as Jupiter and Mars.
   The practitioner pulls the energy from one side through to the
   other, creating a cyclic energy flow.
   The union of these two flows is centered in the solar plexus, the
   heart center. This is the sephirot of Tipareth (Beauty). Ths is
   the point representational of Divinity reaching down to Humanity.
   For some it is the Christ Center. For others it is the Sun. When
   the two lines of force are united here, the solar center ignites,
   illuminating the practioner's conciousness. Western culture has
   represented this mystical awakening upon the cross as a rose.
   (Rose Croix).
