The Alchemical Process
Spiritual Transformation and Energy Healing
All that exists within the entire created universe is composed of
energy: electro-magnetic energy, thermal-chemical energy,
potential-gravitational energy, solar-photonic energy, subatomic-nuclear
energy, psychic-mental energy, vibrational-sound energy....
We live in an ocean of energy: we breathe energy, smell energy, taste
energy, see energy, touch energy and think energy. Whether we are aware
of it or not, energy in one form or another permeates every one and
every thing. This energy is processed and incorporated within our beings
at every moment of our lives. The law of physics states that “energy
cannot be created or destroyed, only transmuted from one form to
another”. Within the context of Energy Healing, this shift or transformation of energy from one state to another
is called “The Alchemical Process”.
Permeating and overlaying our physical spine is an etheric
channel called the "Shushumna". Within this channel resides a very
unique conscious energy the Hindu mystics call the "Kundalini". In the
Greek mystery schools, the Kundalini energy is represented as a serpent
headed "Staff" or "Caduceus", a symbol still used by the medical
profession today. In the Americas, the ancient Mayans made reference to
the rainbow feathered serpent "Quetzalcoatl", and in the Old Testament,
there is the "serpent" in the "Garden of Eden". From a modern point of
view, scientists have demonstrated that when a current of electricity is
run through a metal pole, a spiraling vortex of electro-magnetic energy
is generated. The image of the serpent fits perfectly with this
Ley Lines and Vortexes
Aspects of this self same energy (and Kundalini consciousness) may also
be found to exist not just within our bodies, but also throughout the
In Chinese Feng Shui and Celtic Geomancy, this energy - as it flows
through channels in the Earth - are known as "Dragon" or "Ley Lines".
The earth worshipers of old placed temples upon major crossing points of
these Ley Lines. Most of the older churches in Great Britain were build
upon the foundations of these ancient temples. If you look at Celtic art
today, Ley Lines and Vortexes are still well represented.
In some special locations on the planet (Sedona, Arizona for ex.)
planetary energies can actually be felt to not only run in linear lines,
but circulate in clockwise and counter clockwise directions going into
and out of the planet. Similar to the positive and negative poles of a
magnet, those swirling energies radiating up and out of the earth are
considered masculine or "positive" vortexes, and those swirling energies
descending into the ground are considered feminine or "negative"
vortexes. The former masculine vortexes give out energy (beneficial if
one is deficient or lacking in energy), and the later feminine vortexes
absorb energy (beneficial if one holds an excess amount of stuck or
blocked energies in the body, or if one is feeling particularly
Ley Lines and Vortexes also have corespondent energy points within our
own bodies: Ley Lines are likened to the energy "Meridians" of Oriental
Medicine, and Vortexes are likened to the "Chakras" spoken of by Hindu
mystics (in the Sanskrit language, "chakra" translates as "wheel"). Our
chakras go through alternating phases where they either spiral clockwise
or counterclockwise, radiating or absorbing energy. Perhaps you too have
felt such energy movements.
Intention and Desire
Who and what we are is greatly determined and directed by the
intentions of our "ego" mind and the desires of our heart. What we
intend and desire - that is what we will attract, attach to and become.
In other words, as we project out our thoughts and feelings (ie. energy)
towards anything or anyone, we may find ourselves taking on or
identifying with that external state of matter, mind or consciousness.
For example, when we incarnate and live within a physical body, the
inclination of our
mind is to take on or identify with its state of matter (this is "My"
body) and its associated emotions ("I Am" afraid, angry, sad, depressed,
jealous, and so on).
Deep down, all souls hold the memory of separation from "The
One". Whatever brought about this real or perceived separation or "Fall
from Grace", be it a mysterious act of God or a rebellious act of angel,
demon or man, the result was the same - a slowing down of the
Kundalini's vibrations resulting in the body mind transition into a
denser state of energy and darkened consciousness.
Using the various states of water as an analogy:
The Kundalini in its "etheric" state...
vibrates so quickly as to rise and expand
(higher spiritual consciousness).
The Kundalini in its "Astral” state...
vibrates so easily it flows into any shape
(the mind or psyche).
The Kundalini in its "Physical" state...
vibrates so slow it is as solid as ice
(the actual spinal cord and brain).
While the vibrations of the Kundalini devolve, the consciousness of the
soul may begin to identify with these various denser states of matter
and being. To be clear, it is not the soul itself that is devolving, but
the vibrational layers or self created constructs that surrounds it. The
soul itself is eternally free, but it can (through intention and desire)
surround itself with layers of dense vibrations till the consciousness
loses sight of its pure identity/essence and gets lost in the illusion
it has cloaked itself with.
The lower vibrations within the spine can likewise be awakened,
accelerated, supported and stimulated with the added assistance of this
healing work. By applying higher vibrations through the core, ones
"Spirit" is "Quickened": there is a release of density which allows for
an increase of energy flow, which is felt as a physical and psychic
heat. The (icy) density within begins to vibrate at a faster and faster
rate until the Kundalini energies "transform" or "transmute" the lower
vibrations into a subtler and subtler state. And as the energies ascend
(like steam, or mercury in a thermometer) what is revealed are the more
astral (liquid)... and then the more etheric (steam) levels of ones
underlying spiritual consciousness.
The "Divine Light" that exists behind Creation - as it shines through
the densities or veils surrounding the soul, is perceived as and called
the "Aura". The colors of ones aura vary greatly and are dependent on
ones density of vibration. Those who are sensitive to this phenomena may
see the aura either around the head or a few inches off the whole body.
Traditional depictions of Jesus and his disciples have them appearing
with white or golden halos around their heads... but not everyone
displays auras in those high vibrational colors. For instance, if a
person is holding a lower physical or material vibration, their aura
could appear as a dark color. If a person is more astral or emotional in
vibration, their aura could appears in more vivid colors. For someone
who is more etheric or subtle in vibration, their aura could appear in
more pastel colors. Essentially, the less dense ones vibrations, the
more inner light of the soul can shine through.
We all start out on our journey
as "Enlightened" beings, at one with all. As we travel through the
materialization process of creation, our soul takes on greater and
greater densities - our inner light becomes covered over and hidden
and we get lost in the illusion of separation. The spiritual path is
our journey back to experiencing our original State of Grace... it is
a "Return to Innocence"... the Realization of our God Self.
Liberation - the Big Stretch
As the Soul experiences itself in these higher or lower states of being,
the difficulty and danger occurs when that part of its ego-mind begins
to "identify" with and attach itself to these limited states of matter.
Healing at this point becomes more than simply the transformation of
energies and vibrations from one state to another... one must also
liberate the ego-mind "consciousness" from its identifications and
If we cease to “change” and “flow”... that is to say, if we stop moving,
stretching or expanding... our minds, thoughts, energies, emotions and
body become more and more stagnated, congested, contracted, darker and
denser... till our physical body can no longer hold our life force and
it -this physical bodily shell- dies.
To experience a more abundant life, we must be in a state of constant
change and “stretch” or “expand” in every which way possible. Life
itself does have a way of naturally doing this, but we also can
proactively help it along. There are many spiritual paths and practices
that attempt this, and each has it's place. What I am offering here is
one of them.
