What is Alchemy?

Updated: Jan 27, 2021

Alchemy is the ancient art of transformation ~ for example to change base metals into Gold. When you transform spiritually, you are discovering your innate Gold within - your self worth, inner wisdom and perfection and reclaiming your authentic power.

In the old days, there was no division seen between spiritual and physical practices, but for the sake of modern obsession with duality, alchemy can be divided into two types.

Practical alchemy is chemistry, studying and manipulating the properties of matter to get what you want out of the universe.

Spiritual alchemy is self improvement, clearing the impure, unenlightened states of spirit to reach the "Gold" spiritual perfection which always exists within, but may have been blocked or hidden.

It is not just floating away with the fairies above the myre. It is delving deep into the shadow self to clear out the darkness which brings us enlightenment.

“Why do we have to listen to our hearts?" the boy asked.

"Because, wherever your heart is, that is where you will find your treasure.”

~ Paulo Coelho, The Alchemist

“We are travellers on a cosmic journey,stardust,swirling and dancing in the eddies and whirlpools of infinity. Life is eternal. We have stopped for a moment to encounter each other, to meet, to love, to share. This is a precious moment. It is a little parenthesis in eternity.”

~ Paulo Coelho, The Alchemist
