The Sixth Sephira

Tiphareth Beauty (Truth)

Key words: The realm of higher consciousness. Seeing the Beauty within all creation. The Divine
Child within. The Beauty of the perfection of all that is. The Truth of the completeness of all that is.
Tiphareth holds the vision of the harmony of all things. It is the central point of equilibrium on the
tree. The great force of spirit materializes on the physical plane. Known also as Mediating

Tiphareth is the realm of all healing, the center of the tree, the location from which to harmonize all
forms of manifestation. The center of the meeting point between human and Divine. Abundance,
health, harmony, success, connection with our own higher consciousness. The light within the
center of all Beings, including our Earth. This is the site of incarnation thus the magical image of
the Divine Child.

This is the place where we connect with our own Higher Self, our Holy Guardian Angel (H.G.A.).
Our intentions to make this connection is when the Great Work begins. This Great Work is the
commitment and inspiration to work intentionally for the evolution of our soul.

Tiphareth is the balance point of equilibrium. A 2-way switch that offers both Force and Form
it manifests to form the subtle 5 Sephiroth above, and offers spiritual principles to the denser 4
Sephiroth below.

Devotion to the Great Work. The perfection of the unfolding of the Universe. Victory over
adversity, bringing light to the darkest hours.

Mediating Intelligence the role of the Mediator. Connector and harmonizer of all the other realms.
The mystery of sacrifice. To sacrifice to the greater good is NOT martyrdom. Rather, it is a process
that releases and breaks up a dense or static form of energy into higher frequencies that are returned
in free circulation to the cosmos.

Raphael, the Angel of Healing, creates wholeness through the principles of balance and equilibrium.
This realm is where we connect with our own abilities to heal, which come from seeing and
manifesting the Beauty (wholeness) within all creation, including the Beauty and Truth that lies
underneath the unpleasant or unrealized.

In Tiphareth we connect with our inner Sun our solar plexus that strengthens our own strong and
shining heart. Without this connection we flounder and are lost in chaos of the other realms. The
elementals, when severed from Tiphareth, descend into demonic or black magic states. To heal
nature and the natural world we must have access to the solar principle of this realm.

In our personal lives, Tiphareth is expressed through all forms of healing and the path of emotional
balance. Learning to listen within, maintain equilibrium, and walk the tightrope of physical,
emotional, mental and spiritual balance. The quality that develops through this realm is of
compassion. The challenge in this sphere is to hold compassion for others rather than pride, while
pursuing ones own spiritual expansion (The Great Work).
