As practiced in the L*B*T

 

The daily affirmations given below should be meditated on daily and frequently- one affirmation for each week of the thirty-two periods in which the thirty-two paths are worked. At this time, the seeker may begin “The Middle Pillar Meditation” found in this same menu.

 

These affirmations are given here as a way to keep focus on the deeper meaning of our existence throughout daily life, and provide a working knowledge of the paths within the tree of life, as well as within your own psyche. It is recommended to visualize the exact location of each path upon the tree as you recite each affirmation. In this way, you are literally “climbing” the tree through meditative affirmation. Do not underestimate the advantages that this exercise unlocks within the spiritual realms, as well as within your own existence.

We have taken the time to place the image of each path’s position next to its affirmation so that you might reflect upon the position and function.
