Lilith


Lilith (Hebrew LILITH, "Woman of the Night") in Kabbalistic tradition are the Qlippoth or demonic powers associated with Malkuth, the tenth Sephirah of the Tree of Life. This Qlippoth is the opposite of Malkuth which represents earth into the divine energy flows to work out the divine plan. However, the world in its unbalanced form of Lilith, the seductress representing all of the worldly pleasures, can lead to materialism unbalanced by spirituality from the higher Sephirahs which ultimately leads to carnal or animal consciousness. A.G.H.
