Welcome, Todays post comes from Sixty Skills, from the lecture on ‘How to use Franz Bardon’s Key to the True Kabbalah’. For more information, please visit the website.
The topic of today’s lecture is how to use Franz Bardon’s “The Key to the True Kabbalah”. This is a topic of discussion that I don’t get to get into with many people. The reason for this is rather simple; very few people have actually bothered to do any of the work contained within this book. That said, I’m making this video a bit for posterity, so let’s begin.
First of all, you need to work your way through the single letter key of Franz Bardon’s “The Key to the True Kabbalah”. This can take a couple of years, but this is not the end of the process. Interestingly enough, Bardon points out what he wants you to do with this on the cover of the book. The fact that more people don’t seem to apply much thought to this is a bit of a surprise, but here we go.
The sequence of training detailed in this book is as follows: first, you learn how to do Kabbalah; then, you do the planetary meditations on the Kabbalah spirits. Several of these you will have to figure out on your own through pathworking because they are not all contained in Bardon’s second book. Third, you will then do meditations on the 12 constellations of the zodiac (Bob talks about this here). Again, you will need to do pathworking in order to determine the appropriate spirits for this. Finally, at the end of this, you will also meditate upon the Sephiroth, again from a Kabbalistic standpoint.
This is clearly indicated in the drawing on the cover of the book. Why do you want to do this? Well, ultimately, you will invoke the power of the letters via a four-part concentration: Sephiroth, constellation, planet, and letter. So you will be utilizing the Sephiroth at the Akashic level, the constellations at the mental level, the planets at the astral level, and the letters at the vital level.
Along the way, you’re also going to need to practice the four-letter combination for all four elements plus Akasha. The one for Akasha you will also have to figure out. So this is the basic outline of the system that Franz Bardon had intended in his book.
Now personally, I’ve worked through the first two stages of that. I have worked through the single letter formula, and I have worked through the four-letter formulas for the individual elements plus Akasha. I have also worked through all of the Kabbalah spirits, going from the near-earth realm all the way out to Pluto. Now, at the end of this, you have to come back and re-ground through the sun sphere. So you will do a series of workings over a couple of months, involving invoking the sun sphere and then counterbalancing it with the lunar sphere.
The reason for this is twofold: one, on the way out, particularly past Saturn, you begin to accumulate a fair amount of what can best be called “Akashic grunge” from some of the different entities and energies that you run into. Additionally, once you get to Pluto, you will encounter extrasolar energies and entities that can take you beyond the realm of our solar system without going directly to the constellations. Doing this requires invoking a very specific kind of energy to protect you, as the solar system itself provides a great deal of protection to individuals from these aberrant extrasolar energies.
One of these combinations is the “LUD” letter combination. Again, that’s L, U, and D. I’m sure there are others, but a failure to run one of these energies or to go past the solar system in conjunction with an extrasolar spirit that can provide the necessary protection for you can be quite damaging to a human being, as our bodies and minds are simply not designed to handle this stuff.
Now, why do you want to do that? Well, it turns out the extrasolar region, while not having a direct influence upon this solar system, can provide ideas, concepts, and ways of doing things that can be brought back from this extrasolar region into this region. Things like Buddhism, certain kinds of technology, and I could go on. You can also get an interesting history lesson on the origins of human beings writ large and a bunch of other things. Again, these won’t have much functional impact upon what goes on here because the energies are too diffuse, but they can provide a very good informational, or for lack of a better term, “way of approaching problems from a new direction”.
Once you’re done with that and you’ve re-grounded into our solar system via a solar-lunar meditation, then you can move on to the meditation of the constellations. This is something I am just beginning to explore now, so I don’t have a whole lot to say about that. Towards the end of that year-long meditation, because you will, of course, do one month with each constellation of the zodiac, you will then learn to incorporate the Sephiroth and work with them in conjunction with the constellations, planets, and letters.
Ultimately, the goal of working through Franz Bardon’s “The Key to the True Kabbalah” is to develop a deeper understanding of the spiritual and energetic aspects of the universe, as well as to expand your consciousness and abilities as a practitioner. This is a long and arduous process, but those who are dedicated and persistent can find great rewards in this work.
In summary, if you are interested in working with Bardon’s Kabbalah system, you should:
- Work through the single letter key.
- Perform the planetary meditations on the Kabbalah spirits.
- Meditate on the 12 constellations of the zodiac.
- Incorporate the Sephiroth in your meditations and practices.
- Practice the four-letter combination for all four elements plus Akasha.
- Explore the extrasolar region with appropriate protection and guidance.
By following these steps and dedicating yourself to this path, you can unlock the full potential of Franz Bardon’s “The Key to the True Kabbalah” and grow as a spiritual practitioner. However, keep in mind that this is not a journey for the faint of heart, and it requires a great deal of commitment, discipline, and patience.
