The literal translation of the Hebrew root word, QBL, from which we get Kabbalah is 'that which is received.' To receive we must be receptive, and open ourselves, creating a container that transmutes the teachings so that we ourselves can become a living part of the Kabbalah. Not just to receive, but to raise our consciousness to the point where our perception of reality is completely changed, and the divine within all creation is revealed. Generally speaking, Kabbalah is divided into three categories: the Theoretical, which concerns itself primarily with the inner dimensions of reality - the spiritual worlds, levels of souls and angels; the Meditative, where the goal is to train the student to reach higher elevated meditative states of consciousness and, perhaps, even a state of prophecy through employing the Divine names, and letter permutations and, lastly, the Magical, which concerns itself with altering and influencing the course of nature. It also uses the divine names, incantations, amulets, magical seals and various other mystical exercises.With regards to the latter, the vast majority of the more important texts of magical Kabbalah have never been published, and for all intents and purposes, became extinct; its knowledge completely forgotten. The ultimate purpose of the Kabbalah is the perfection of the Self - making the Self into a better, more expanded individual; more transcendent, more attuned to the essence and roots of one's soul. This is what Kabbalah offers those who truly wish to receive it.
