Answer: First, one must determine and define who is a Kabbalist.
A Kabbalist is a person who is connected to a group of Kabbalists and who in the connection with his friends, discovers the Creator. The mutual attainment of the Creator in the group enables him to be a Kabbalist who receives the revelation of the upper force.
If you have undergone a certain personal experience, I must tell you that unfortunately it is only an illusion and a misconception.
