In twenty years of study I have never heard that. So far as I know,
whether one uses "Qabala", "Qabalah", "Kabala", "Cabala", or any of the
other variant transliterations is an arbitrary choice without semantic
significance. Given that the Hebrew word starts with Qoph, "Qabala" or
"Qabalah" is arguably most accurate.
