From my knowledge, by undergoing the Gate-Walking ritual, one would travel up the Sephirothic Tree of Life, and then down the Qlipothic Tree of Death, effectively merging with your Holy Guardian Angel/Higher Self, allowing you to be rid of the Ego and weaknesses that hold back all your magick ability/potential. I guess you could say that all your blocks in magic will be rid of completely. Your soul would be transmuted into gold, and you’d be able to work with and summon all the 50 names of Marduk with ease. But the same goes for the 72 spirits of the Goetia after the Lake of Fire Ritual, but one would only travel down the Qlipothic Tree of Death.
I don’t want to say that they’re the same thing but does the Ars Theurgia and later works of the Lesser Key of Soloman tie in rest, essentially being the same thing? What would happen if one were to complete both initiatory rites? And would just one rite provide the same benefits as the other, based on the fact that there are similarities between the 50 names and the Goetia or are there none? Would there be a significant change/is it even possible or has anyone accomplished this already because this is some pretty heavy pathworking. Are there similarities or differences? Maybe I’m not asking the right questions because my brain is lowkey fried but some insight on this would be cool.
