  Four Kabbalalistic Worlds

 

 

 

There are four primary stages of transformation of the Divine archetypes. They are called 'Worlds' in Kabbalah, but should not be confused with astronomical objects like planets. They are:

1. Atziluth (the Archetypal World). The initial stage of conception of the Divine Ideas. God contemplates His own nature in the archetypes embodied in His Godnames;
2. Beriah (World of Creation). The stage at which God's intentions become formulated broadly by the Archangel assigned to each Sephirah;
3. Yetzirah (World of Formation). In the angelic realms, the abstract, Divine intention is diversified and given form, although still subtle in nature;
4. Assiyah (World of Action). The physical universe where Spirit finally conjoins with Matter and the Divine Ideas become realized in space and time.
