Narrated by Sandra Tabatha Cicero.
A Guided Visualization into Yesod
Yesod is the ninth Sephirah and the sphere of the foundation. By foundation, we mean the astral foundation or matrix upon which all manifested forms in the physical universe as based and built upon. It is the sphere of the astral place and the level at which we can build up images in the imagination. Yesod touches upon the images and operations of the unconscious mind–those subconscious body functions that we are unaware of. The ninth sphere is also the realm of procreation, biology, intuition, and rhythms, tides, and fluctuations. The luminary of the Moon, the ruler of the instinctive mind, is attributed here.Summary: The student travels from Malkuth to Yesod, where he encounters the archangel Gabriel, and the four Kerubim who are the powers of the four great formative energies of the Tetragrammaton.
A Guided Visualization into the 31st Path of Shin
The Thirty-first Path “regulates the motions of the Sun and the Moon,” luminaries which are analogous to male and female polarities of energy. “Each in an orbit convenient for it” suggests that these energies are separated in an alchemical fashion in order that both may be systematically purified and recombined into a greater unity. Summary: The student travels from Malkuth and continues up the path of Shin, where he finds himself received by the ancient Greeks as a candidate of the Samothracian Mysteries and experiences the energy of primordial fire.
A Guided Visualization into the 30th Path of Resh The Thirtieth Path leads from the astral, imaginative world in Yesod, to the sphere of the rational mind in Hod. It is therefore a conducting path of the thought process or intellectual energy which further refines the lower personality of the student. The path of Resh is a balance between the imagination and the intellect. But here our consciousness turns inward for guidance and support. Summary: The student travels from Malkuth to Yesod and continues up the path of Resh, where he finds himself in an Egyptian temple of the sun god Re in the city of Heliopolis.
