Esoteric Alchemy is the study and understanding of cause and effect. By learning how to move our mind and consciousness in and out of reality, mind, body and spirit we gain the ability to shift and transform energy and therefore reality.
The art of Esoteric Alchemy begins by learning to trace the paths of reality as they are. Through experiencing these paths and being guided through the doorways that lie within each path, we learn how to discover reality as it is not. Once again we learn to trace these paths. We experience and then are guided through the doorways that allow us to understand how reality as it is not can exist. We learn the rules and how they relate to the rules of our own reality. We experience the opposing “tensions” that allow contradiction to exist.
As the body and mind is guided to experience multiple, contradictory and tangential realities and experiences, the consciousness is directed and made to expand. Training in Esoteric Alchemy is facilitated by pulsing or directing frequencies through specific “gates.” These gates are the waypoints of the personality as it exists at both the conscious and sub-conscious levels. In some ways it is similar to having a good rapport. There is a reciprocal communication happening and we understand how to feed into the conversation. Esoteric Alchemy takes this to an energetic level. The results are that clients can be taken on guided tours with their Higher Self, group astral projection journeys, shown directly how to heal and remove emotional blocks and turn on and off psychic senses.
The main advantages to developing Esoteric Alchemy with a partner or teacher is that the teacher’s role is to watch the inter-changing energies and direct the energies that are needed to facilitate shifts. The client or other partner’s intellectual mind need not be involved to a great extent and for the most part they are able to simply experience the trip. The benefits are much like being a passenger in a car. We are able to see how to get back there as well as take in the little details. The other advantage with a teacher of course is that they will have been there to a far greater depth and will be able to know exactly what is needed to move further, to return and to facilitate intellectual, emotional and physical comprehension of what has occurred.
It is important that the partner or client who is developing their consciousness in this way is given the appropriate support. Awareness, knowledge and experience is one thing, being able to accept and reconcile the experiences is another. Both are necessary in order to sustain inner peace, happiness and a sense of empowerment. Grounding meditation and stretching are two of the easiest methods to facilitate harmonious integration, but those of us interested in serious development would benefit from working with acupressure and meridian therapy, transpersonal psycho-therapists and experienced healers and meditation therapists. This being said if you are keen to explore the basics of Alchemical Healing find a willing partner and begin to play with some of the various energetic techniques that have been outlined in this site in previous articles. Here are some tips for practice:
Only practice with a willing partner.
Bring yourself to a centered and grounded state of mind. Experiment with the difference in practice when you do not center yourself first.
Take your time scanning and observing the inner energy of your partner.
When ever you “remove” an energy make sure to “replace” it with a new energy or the old pattern will return. You may prefer to think of the whole process as transforming the energy.
At the end of the session bring yourself back to a centered state. Clean and clear your energy body and mind. Experiment with how it feels if you do not clear your consciousness. Observe the differences in energy and overall body feel.
These are basic guidelines for Esoteric Alchemy. The practices themselves are developed in a similar way as any relationship of communication is developed – time and practice. Smooth, articulate speech and rapid understanding, the ability to communicate in other “languages” through learning other techniques and being guided through journeys – all of this comes through experience and immersing ourselves in deeper wells of understanding.
