The Tree of Life Is Placed On The Back Of The Human Body By Sabrina Reber
The Tree of Life is the divine blueprint the Creator provided for humans to utilize as a roadmap to help us return back to our original divine essences. The Tree is a picture of the macrocosm and the microcosm. Our physical body and energetic pathways are organized and mapped by the tree of life on our physical bodies. That is why it is so important to understand that the “Tree of Life” and its 10 Sephiroth are not to be placed on the front of the body but are intended to be placed on the back of the body. The “Tree of Life” represents who we truly are and when we understand the symbolism contained within the tree, we begin to understand ourselves – who we are and why we are here.
The 10 Sephiroth are within us and in all organic and inorganic matter. The Sephiroth are the multidimensional aspects of creation, of everything in existence – from the Universe, to Man, to the Atom. Humans are in the process of activating and incarnating the energies of each Sephirah, which will help us awaken to our true potentials and activate our luminous light bodies. The Sephiroth are atoms, high vibrational spiritual atoms that remain dormant until we choose from our own free will to face God, to face ourselves, so we can access our true spiritual/divine natures. This doesn’t just happen, it requires dedication and the use of our WILL to ascend ourselves up the “Tree of Life” where we can access higher and higher levels of the divine forces that work within and around us so we can grow the spiritual fruits of our tree. That is why it is important to never give your WILL away to anyone or anything else because it is the very power of your WILL that will help you access the truth within your being and help you make contact with your Father Mother within you. We can align our WILLS with our inner Fathers and Mothers, and we can listen to their guidance and do as they say (which will make our lives a whole lot easier) but they will never take the WILL of a soul away from them because we need the power of our WILL and the power of our choice to gain experiences so we can evolve our souls to new levels of being. This is the very essence of why we incarnated in the first place; to eventually utilize our WILLS to return ourselves back to the spiritual dimensions within ourselves while we are in physical embodiment.
“Freedom (free will), one might call the Divinity of Humanity. It is the most beautiful, the most superb, the most irrevocable of all of the Creator’s gifts to us. The Supreme Creator will not violate this Freedom without denying its own nature.” Eliphas Levi
To further discuss why the “Tree of Life” is placed on the back of the human body we need to first understand the Supernal Triad at the top of the “Tree of Life” that contains the three aspects of God which are woven into ONE because the energy flow between them is not broken. The Supernal Triad is the TRINITY that consists of Kether (+-), Chokmah (+) and Binah (-).
Kether: Both (+) and (-). Androgynous. The Initial Spark of God. The True Self. Father.
Chokmah:(+) The Spirit, the Flame, WISDOM. The masculine archetype that extends itself out to create the soul. (Son/Christ) It is the original FORCE – it is “Consciousness.” Positive Polarity. It is the son who can also become a father. Its placement is on the RIGHT HEMISPHERE of the brain. From Wikipedia: “Chokhmah appears in the configuration of the sefirot at the top of the right axis, and corresponds in the tzelem Elokim (“the Divine image”) to the right eye, or right hemisphere of the brain.” Chokmah sits at the top of the Pillar of Mercy, also known as the column of Jachen on King Solomon’s Temple. It is Masculine, Positive Polarity, Yang.
Binah:(-) Womb, Container, Mother that holds the “flame” of the Father from which all souls are born. Holy Spirit. Feminine Archetype of FORM! The vehicle/the body through which FORCE expresses itself. From Wikipedia: Binah is on the “left hemisphere of the brain, left eye, or the side of the heart. Binah sits at the top of the Pillar of Severity, also know as the column of Boaz on King Solomon’s Temple. It is Feminine, Negative Polarity, Yin.
When the energy of God moves down into creation it moves forward as a lightening rod from KETHER into CHOKMAH (FORCE) which is located on the “right side” of our bodies (masculine/yang/positive) and then moves to the left side of our heads into BINAH (into FORM) which is the feminine/yin/negative. It then continues to move down the tree of life until it reaches into physicality. This movement can be symbolically referred to as the “Big Bang.”
Humans are a reflection of God and the “Tree of Life.” Therefore, humans are facing the tree which is being “reflected” onto us. This means that the tree would be superimposed on to us with the right side of our bodies (which are masculine) aligning with Chokmah (+), Chesed (-), Netzach (+) which are on the yang side of the pillar on the “Tree of Life,” the pillar of mercy (sun). The left sides of our bodies (which are feminine) align with Binah (-), Geburah (+) and Hod (-) which are aligned on the yin side of the pillar on the “Tree of Life,” the pillar of severity (moon). The proper placement of the “Tree of Life” is placed on the back of the body, which aligns the right side of our bodies with the mind of “Force”(CHOKMAH) and the left side of our bodies with that of “Form” (BINAH). In order for the energies of Kether to descend down into physicality it must first move into “the right side of the human body” which has the positive charge (+) FORCE of consciousness known as CHOKMAH which then can extend itself into BINAH (-) which is the womb or the container that holds the flame of divinity where souls are born. BINAH is the closest to the world of form, therefore it is the last of the energies in the Supernal Triad to receive the energies of FORCE before they become FORM.
Binah is of a negative charge which means it is on the LEFT side of the body and CHOKMAH is of a positive charge so therefore it is on the RIGHT side of the body. If we were to put the “Tree of Life” on the front of the body without correctly reversing the Sephiroth it would look like the image below and this does not reflect CHOKMAH on the positive (+) masculine side of this person’s body or BINAH on the negative (-) feminine side of this person’s body. It is confusing, because we have to take into account when we are looking at a person’s body their right side would be our left side. So when we are working with the tree of life on our own bodies or on someone else’s we need to remember that Chokmah represents the masculine energy which is located on the right side of our human bodies whereas Binah would be placed on the left side of the human body because it represents feminine energy. I also think a lot of people get confused because they place Chokmah where the Hindus Ida (left Brain) would be and Binah where the Hindus Pingala (right brain) would be without taking into consideration that Ida, the left brain actually operates the right side of the body while Pingala, the right brain actually works the left side of the body.
This image shows an incorrect placement of the tree of life.
The above image is incorrect because it would place CHOKMAH, the masculine archetype (Yang) on the feminine side (Yin) of the pillar on the “Tree of Life.” And BINAH (The Mother), would be on the masculine side of the pillar which is the positive pillar of FORCE/CHRIST/SON. So as you can see, the “Tree of Life” should appropriately be placed on the back side of the body so FORCE (CHOKMAH) and FORM (BINAH) can be placed on the appropriate masculine (+) and feminine (-) sides of the 2 pillars. See image below for correct placement of Chokmah and Binah. © RAISEYOURVIBRATION.COM
Again Chokmah is represented by the SUN, by fire, by love. It is the FORCE of Christ, and the sun is masculine and is placed on the right side of the human body. Binah is the feminine aspect of God so it is placed on the left side of the body represented by the moon.
If you want to place the “Tree of Life” on the front of the body, simply reverse the Sephiroth so that Chokmah and the sephiroth on Chokmah’s pillar are on the right, masculine side of the body. While Binah and the sephiroth on her pillar are on the left side of the body (feminine) so that it looks like this:
APPROPRIATE FRONT OF BODY PLACEMENT IN REVERSE
The image above was taken from some of the highest mystical and spiritual teachings on the Kabalah and many other metaphysical concepts that I have come across; Samael Aun Weor and the Gnostic Teachings also place the tree of life with Chokmah on the right side of the human body and Binah on the left side of the human body.
