Alchemy is an ancient path of personal transformation and ultimately, one of personal illumination, or enlightenment.
The transformation of an “ordinary” person into an extraordinary human being with the miraculous capacity to be more refined, elegant, potent and complete expressions of their own divine natures.
In Spiritual Alchemy, the pursuit is of spiritual attainment, to turn the dross (or lead) of one’s emotional and energetic states into refined golden light. The metaphor of lead is; that which holds us back, weighs us down, or keeps our veil in place and keeps us from experiencing the subtle realms of our consciousness, that which keeps us from seeing and being the Divine nature of oneself in living embodiment.
Opening to alchemical consciousness can help us to move beyond the limitations of our current view of reality, beyond the limitations of the rational mind, linear time, and material phenomenon. As we integrate this “other” way of seeing and knowing, we may discover solutions to problems that seem insoluble from our current worldview.
As modern day alchemists, we are returning to the wisdom of the past in order to reconnect to the rich multi-dimensional domain of the soul. In the process, we are moving forward towards a viable future filled with new and illuminated possibilities for ourselves, our communities, and our world.
