Ghagiel ( variously Chaigidel, Chaigidiel, or Oghiel), Confusion of the Power of God, in the belief system of Kabbalah, is the name of the Qliphoth corresponding to the Sephirah Chokmah in the Tree of Life.


Chokmah, or "Wisdom" is the sephira concerned with creative, subjective energy, the phallic force that acts upon Binah, the great mother, the receiver of this energy and giver of form. If Chokmah is not balanced by the force of Binah, it remains proud, unrestricted energy, too stubborn to be bound by the matrix of the mother, unwilling to 'bow down to man' and take material form, as described in the Islamic legend regarding Iblis, or Satan.

Therefore, Chokmah becomes Ghagiel, the force that hinders the natural evolution of divine energy flowing down into the creation, through pride and egotism, and maintains itself in the world of illusion and lies.


"These are the confusion of that great power which, as Chokmah, goes forth at the beginning to give the vital energy of creation to the processes of Binah. The cortex of the Chaigidel is called Ghogiel, 'Those Who Go Forth into the Place Empty of God'."

"Both Satan and Beelzebub are attributed as well as Adam Belial. The name Belial is often used separately as a demonic name."
