DAATH: The Refuse-Pit


Identified by Kaballah as "The non-Sephirah Daath," this Sphere of energy is placed in the aura-diagram at the Throat level only because it involves HOW WE WORD OURSELF; it's actual location on the body is the COLON (Large Intestine) RECTUM AND ANUS; any or all of which can become 'sore' or traumatized by a crisis over HOW TO LET GO OF THE PAST.

In fact, EVERY such letting go of the past requires "A LITTLE DEATH;" letting a small part of our former self-identity or self-description 'die' and then "REINCARNATE" in a new form. Naturally (since we ALL fear or resist death, by instinct,) we NEVER really want to let this happen.. even though we can feel that it is needed!

Letting an old relationship, self-opinion or lifestyle 'die' and get replaced takes COURAGE and WISDOM. Normally these are things that we have to 'talk' ourselves into!.. and the presence of a helpful counselor can often be quite necessary.

It is good to begin every Daath-related crisis-analysis by asking the individual to identify WHAT PART OF THEIR LIFE SEEMS LIKE IT IS "DYING" OR ABOUT TO END. Normally that will (eventually) bring the issues to the surface, and one can then begin planning-out how to help the 'letting-go' to occur.




Physical HELP

The Physical-World Information on your Daath crisis can be found in ASTROLOGICAL INFLUENCES and/or THE "I CHING" LIFE-CALENDAR. For any event involving this part-of-self that began suddenly and has not diminished since then, the Life-Calendar is probably the source of the influence; you should be able to see the pattern clearly (including when to expect it to end) by reading the Year-Hexagram from that Calendar. Any PROCESS that seems to be EVOLVING into ever-changing forms over a long period of time is probably due to ASTROLOGICAL CHANGES affecting one's place in the world around you, as reflected by Planetary Changes. Note that you will need both a Natal (Birth) Horoscope AND a Transit Chart for the current year, in order to understand these Planetary Cycles.

Spiritual HELP

Most western societies know of the great "Spritual Intermediaries" who caretake our relationship with the Great Spirit, and refer to them as "Archangels." Asian societies normally call them "Boddhisattvas" though the "Lord of Daath" in Asian traditions is called SHIVA, to whom one may address requests for help in crossing Daath's Refuse-Pit. The Archangel of 'getting to Heaven' is called "Metatron" in Kaballah, and it is he who guides one through this process, in western traditions.

The Angelic Order (or lineage of Devic Spirit-Workers, if you prefer) who serve this Sephirah are called the Chioth Ha Qodesh, or "Four Holy Living Creatures" (the 'Tetramorphs' of Ox, Man, Eagle and Lion who represent the raw materials out of which all created forms are combined.) When one contacts the Archangel Metatron and requests his help in contacting the Creator, these Tetramorphs respond by revealing themselves to us as the four "Identity-Strands" discussed in THE PERSONAL IDENTITY SECTION of this Manual. To successfully 'cross Daath' and drop the rubbish you are carrying, ONLY those details about you should be retained. The Archangel who actually DOES the 'rubbish removal' function for us is named KHAMAEL. Click-on his name to learn more about him, and jot down his name as well.

To contact the Archangel whose help you need in the most direct way possible, jot-down the name "Metatron" and then click-on KABALLAH-CIRCLE RITES where a reliable, long-used Ritual Meditation is listed.. and simply perform it as shown, inserting the proper name where prompted. This will trigger as much immediate Spiritual HELP for your problem or crisis as possible right now.

Repeated contact with this Archangel (asking each time for yet MORE clarity of Overview and more help with solving the specific details of your 'rubbish-crisis') over a period of days or weeks may prove extremely useful.. since it is only after fully INTEGRATING all four 'strands' of your SPIRIT-IDENTITY that full Self-Overview can occur, finally ending your Daath-related problem.

Kaballah does not recognize Daath as having a 'God-Aspect;' but the ancient Egyptians did associate one specific diety with the Rite of Passage through Daath. Called URAEUS in the ancient Egyptian "paut Neteru" or Great Company of the Gods.. and considered the god of "Adeptship" and total self-Mastery.. Uraeus was the Royal Cobra-god who wrapped himself around the brow of anyone who mastered their fear of him and gained the power to command his obedience. Uraeus decorated the royal crown of Egypt as well as the staffs of her Temple-Keepers.
