Kabbalah is the Jewish tradition of mystically interpreting the Bible. It is a significant influence in Hasidism. It has been divided into three categories. The first is the theoretical, and spiritual side of the practice. The second level is where the person is educated so they can achieve an elevated state of meditation, and maybe even a state of prophecy. The third level of Kabbalah is the magical stage. This involves altering and changing the course of nature. Many people believe the third stage is a more dangerous stage, and those you practice Kabbalah have stayed away from the third stage.
Kabbalah today is usually practiced in the theoretical stage. The purpose of the practice of Kabbalah is to perfect the Self. It helps one to understand the essence of their own soul. The core of Kabbalah is to draw down the Infinite Light and bring holiness into one’s life on a day to day basis.
