The Qliphoth

The Qliphoth /Qlippoth/Qelippot or Kelipot (Heb. קליפות, literally "Peels", "Shells" or "Husks" (from singular: קליפה Qliphah/Kelipah "Husk"), The realm of evil is also termed "Sitra Achra/Ahra" (Aramaic סטרא אחרא, the "Other Side" opposite holiness) in Kabbalah texts. The Tree of Death is what I'm going to be talking about today,and the paths upon it known as the tunnels of Set.There are many good,and some not so grand works on the Kelipot including Scales of the Black Serpent - Basic Qlippothic Magick by Michael W. Ford,Nightside of Eden by Kenneth Grant,Nightshades: a Tourist Guide to the Nightside by Jan Fries,Sabbatica, the Seas of Death and the Arcanna of Deathbringer by Edgar Kerval and S. Ben Qayin and the classic we all draw from Qabalah, Qliphoth and Goetic Magic by Thomas Karlsson and Timo Ketola.....This is just a small sample I will be pulling from,there are many more.Now According to Scholem, the Zohar interprets evil as "the residue of the hidden life's organic processes." Evil is something which has been cast off, but the spark of Life, from God, has fallen upon it, giving it "life". It is a form without force inside it, a hollow shell, an empty illusion. It is the cast off "skin" of the Sephiroth.The Zohar has often explained the Qliphoth to be the forces responsible for the lack of the continuation of human evolution. The reason behind this is that the Qliphoth, who can easily exist in the Great Void due to their "nature", feed off of Entropy. Now there is the Idea that the ideal shape of the higher dimensional continuum of the universe is the shape of a tube torus, then the Abyss that the Qliphoth seem to come from is the empty middle of the torus. It is the zero point of the dimensional continuum. If the Qliphoth had to cross the center of this dimensional or temporal continuum to get here (it is likely that this crossing happened at the Fracturing in the times of Atlantis), then they came from the Abyss and their momentum was fundamentally backwards to ours. Instead of living off of the energy of Flow as we do, the Qliphoth lived off of the negative energy of Entropy, or when energy is dispersed, due to death, or other means of Entropy. How to get to the torus you ask?Well the way most of us use is Lilith , and it is within her that the magician must seek the other Qlipoth. It is toward her that the magical pentagram is pointing. The pentagram of dark magic points toward the earth, the soil, toward ancient times and the primordial. It is here that one finds the Qlipoth. The Qlipoth are the reality that we refuse to see. A dark magician does not, like the adept of the light tradition stare up at the heavens in search of some heavenly utopian world. A dark magician gazes down toward the earth to seek the treasures that have been hidden for thousands of years. The womb of Lilith is the grave that the dark adept freely enters, down into the kingdom of death and the underworld in an initiatory journey towards rebirth. Actually, to find the Lilith Qlipha is the first difficulty for the Qliphotic magician. Lilith is the anti-world to our mundane world, Malkuth. This means that it exists in the middle of our world, but in aspects in which man is normally unaware. Through an exploration of the principals of which the mundane world consists, one can find the Lilith Qlipha by going beyond and against these principles. The normal awakened state of mind is the basic level of consciousness in human existence. Sleep is the absence of the awakened state, and sleep is also the womb of the Lilith Qlipha. Repressed parts of our mind appear in dreams and can often take on a demonic shape reflecting both our desire and our fear.According to Karlsson,If the following formula is chanted 13 times, Lilith is supposed to appear: marag ama lilith rimok samalo naamah,This works,but there is a fine lady you must talk with first,Naamah. She has been called the daughter or younger sister of Lilith. In visions she appears as a mighty queen dressed in precious garments and jewels. Sometimes she is seductive, but other times she might have a tyranical character. When the magician wants to channel the force of the Qlipha, Nammah is called upon. This force is mainly used in rituals regarding the influence and control of the material level. Lilith is the dark side of the Shekinah, and she corresponds to the Gnostic Sophia and the tantric Shakti. In Tantric terminology, Lilith corresponds to the backside or inside of the Muladhara Chakra. Muladhara is the energy zone that is located between the anus and the genitals, which is where the sleeping dragon (Kundalini) rests.Now this is just the tip of the Abyss when it comes to this deep subject,but it should give all you Luciferi out there food for thought,Happy walking,and may the Black Flame light your way.  Copyright 2015 Vincent Piazza

  1. An excellent and historical account of the Qliphoth... I tip my Lillith hat back to you in admiration of your great knowledge and experience with this left hand path route of the primordial... I aim too for the glorious black flame of illumination after through meeting the great mother of liberation of freedom.... Thank you... May your hat levitate a foot above your head and gently land safely where it belongs...
