The Tree of Life According to Kabbalah

How to Build a Person’s Tree of Life Map?
Building a person’s Tree of Life is based on the person’s name and date of birth (similar to Kabballah astrology map). According to the Zohar, names will affect a person’s essence and fate, while the date of birth will determine his properties and the physical realm. Man acts based on seven levels – Spirit, Soul and Essence. There are three levels of the Spirit (I operate, I see, I think) that represents a man’s daily life. The Essence level represents man’s deepest desires (beyond the superficial daily life that is represented in the Spirit level). The Soul level is also divided into three (I love, I see, I the whole).
