Triangle of Causation

Triangle of Causation In the kabbalistic tradition of Magic, the foundation for work on the Astral Plane. The Triangle of Causation is used in the creation of ThoughtformS.

The Triangle’s components and their correspondences to the TREE OF LIFE are (1) desire (Kether); (2) VISUALIZATION (Chokmah); and (3) IMAGINATION (Binah). The engagement of these qualities in Ritual at high intensity and with projection of WILL builds the thought-forms. A fourth side is added to the triangle—organization (Chesed) to manifest the thought-form on the physical plane.
