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 phenomenon.

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 physical universe.

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 ungrounded).

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 ego 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 Quickening
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 attachments.

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.
