—From the Introduction to ‘The Qliphothic Trilogy,’ by Asenath Mason—
The work with the dark side of the Qabalah is a process that embraces and reintegrates each aspect of existence, opening access to the very source of primal power. The Tree of Qliphoth is a working initiatory model that leads to Self-Deification and empowerment.
The particular Qliphothic realms can be viewed as actual worlds or states of consciousness. These, however, are rather conceptions than actual structures, and what we see and experience in these spheres is a projection of our consciousness.
Each initiatory level is different for each adept and there are never two identical forms of experience.
The purpose of constructing such an initiatory model is to provide a system, or a “map,” which will help the Initiate progress through successive levels in a systematic way. Otherwise, we would lose ourselves in these dark and chaotic worlds.
