What if the ART of ALCHEMY is LOVE?

Is the vibration of LOVE simply the coherence of creation?

We so often confuse the word Love with only being in a romantic relationship. What if the true meaning and vibration of Love is the energy that surrounds our planet and is actually the power that ignites creation. We all know that it’s our heart to heart connection that creates unity. But what if LOVE is a higher co-creative force, while pro-creation is perhaps an unconscious reproduction.

And back to the notion of being in a loving/romantic relationship, we could actually view everything we connect with as being in a loving relationship. The nature of our relationships can vary depending on how much we value them. Even the level of LOVE we express for our vocation/purpose powers our creativity.

We are what we share and what we love…

We have access to this powerful source of energy at all times, yet we can be fearful of it.

The frequency of love crosses every area of human existence. We either love or hate our family, our friends, our work, our home, our business, our hobbies, our heroes, our lifestyle, our creations, our country, our environment, and our planet.

We do seem to express what we love and hate frequently. But what if it’s LOVE that sustains our planet, the universe and us?

Perhaps GOD is simply LOVE and that’s why we’re hardwired to create heartfelt connections with each other, perhaps it’s in our ability to create high-quality coherence, which actually creates more LOVE, more LIGHT more GOD.

What if we are either in LOVE, which equals LIFE/LIGHT or we are in FEAR, which equals DEATH/DARKNESS.

This reminds me of how we are often very fearful of being in LOVE or losing LOVE. My distinction is, it’s not Love we are fearful of, but rather it is our fear of LIFE/LIGHT. For some it is easier to exist without love, light, life or God; whatever we want to call it, than fully connecting and committing to a frequency that just maybe sustaining the entire universe.

I have adopted a new mantra of late, which is ‘I Love God First’. And here is how I feel whenever I say it to myself.

  • First I feel instantly connected to a source that loves me.
  • Then I feel able to like myself and other’s a whole lot more.
  • Next, I feel confident that only good things flow from this feeling.
  • Followed by an instinctive knowing that this feeling, in fact, creates more LOVE.

Perhaps the result of creating gold in the process of alchemy is simply the perfection of Love, inner and outer, the divination of matter and human.

This idea is certainly not strange to any artisan or creative person. When we undertake the process to create something, we establish a new connection, a new love, as it were, and from that, we desire to create perfection. In order for it to be expressed, we must Love it and become one with that which we Love.

This “becoming one with” is what alchemy is all about. It is the symbolic formula of transformation. There needs to be a surrendering of the Self and a surrendering to the Love of what you wish to be a part of. There is always a level of suffering, purification and separation from the ego-self that must occur, which is the central message… ‘The ART of ALCHEMY is LOVE.’

The ART of ALCHEMY is LOVE, demonstrates the science of the Soul that results from understanding the nature of God, the nature of Nature, and the nature of Human Beings.

This is what the Magic Ones, the Holy Men, the Saints, and the Shamans have been saying and doing for thousands of years.

Perhaps they have been putting together formulas that generate the POWER of LOVE but calling it something else, religion, special magic…etc.

The Truth is we can all contact, connect to and create this amazing power; LOVE.

As I said before human beings are hardwired to generate this miraculous force; Love. Perhaps the ancients were absolutely right from the start, when they said, “We must love and acknowledge our source first, above all else.” Sounds logical to me, acknowledging the source from which I was created makes perfect sense.

So, if I was created by a force that is powered by LOVE…, of course, I am going to love that source first, it’s what keeps me alive for GOD’s sake… and literally for God’s sake.

Message of Light for August

As you give of your heart, your mind will follow, for above the realm of reason rests the light and love of all that is worth having in one’s life.

And So it Is

We are made of energy, Light

Here are some energy balancing tools to use to clear your space and prevent energy drains while releasing unwanted energy:

Stay centered and grounded. If you are centered within your spiritual self (instead of your inner critic or ego) you will sense right away when something has moved into your space. The first key elements in creating a clear space around you are – Learn or practice meditation regularly. Sit in nature and remember to breathe deeply. 

Give yourself an energy cleanse. The colour gold has a high vibration which is useful for clearing away unwanted energy. Imagine a shower of golden light at the top of your aura (a few feet above your head) and turn that shower of light on, allowing clear gold energy to flow through your aura and body space and release down around you, grounding you. You will immediately feel cleansed and refreshed.

Be in a state of non-resistance. What you resist sticks. If you feel uncomfortable around a certain person or in a group, don’t go into resistance as a way to protect yourself as this will only keep this unwanted energy stuck in your space. Move into a state of non-resistance by correcting and transforming any shadow thoughts or feelings into light thoughts or feelings and allow the energy of the light to flow through you and around you, you will soon feel neutrality rather than stress. Practice being kind instead of needing to be right, this will shift a situation from one of conflict to one of compassion. 

Own your personal space (your aura). You have an energetic field (aura) surrounding your body. If you don’t own this personal energy you are vulnerable to other energy entering it. Become aware of your aura boundaries (about an arm’s length away from your body all the way around, above and below) as a way to own your personal space.

Heart to Heart

Participating with Purpose

shutterstock_145382977

Life presents us with so many competing demands that any thought toward a larger purpose gets lost in a storm of “but how”. Our days are consumed by chores: taking care of our body, our family, our job, and our possessions. We talk to people without really connecting and remaining spare time often dissipates into our favored distractions.

The meaning of any act no matter how small is derived from having a purpose. But we tend to lose touch with the purpose of what we do. We often fall into the routine of details, not relating to how the job serves society. We respond to the needs of the moment or the day, letting the opportunities of our life just slip away.

A spiritual path though aligns us with the great purpose of the universe.

Although we remain only dimly aware of that purpose, something tells us that when we practice being present, do our prayer/meditation, practice compassion and actively seek wisdom, we simultaneously serve both our own purpose and a greater purpose. The truth of purpose goes even further; one could say that the Creator is the purpose, a profound mountain of purpose behind the cosmos, a purpose that creates and sustains the universe and us. Through our spiritual practice, our creative work, our acts of love, kindness, peace, and responsibility, we participate directly in that great purpose of The Most Sacred And Holy One.

Are we connected to our purpose while standing in line at the checkout? We need to feed our family, be kind to others and be fully present with people, so I guess the answer is yes. Living with intention connects us with a greater intention; the Creators intention, which is where we find meaning, this includes the meaning of each moment of our life. Participating with purpose brings about a confidence that what you do matters, that your inner work matters beyond yourself. Participating with purpose brings with it a happy and meaningful life.

The Spiritual Purpose of Life

In the sixteenth century Isaac Luria a renowned Kabbalist used the phrase Tikkun Olam, usually translated as repairing the world; this is the correcting and transforming role of humanity in the ongoing evolution of consciousness. Luria taught that the Creator created the world by forming vessels of light to hold the Divine Light. But as the Creator poured the Light into the vessels they shattered and tumbled down toward the realm of matter, the lower worlds. Thus, our world consists of countless creations of the original vessels, which are entrapped with the holy sparks of Divine Light. Humanity’s great task involves helping the Creator by freeing and reuniting these scattered holy sparks. By helping in the raising of these sparks back to the upper worlds, we are purposefully participating in divine restoration.

We meet similar concepts in other religions. The Christ; know as Jesus promised to return with the Kingdom of Heaven and encouraged people to prepare through love, wakefulness, and charity. In Buddhism, the Bodhisattva vows to forgo final liberation until all beings have been freed from suffering. The Gnostics held that a spark of Divinity resides entrapped within the soul of humans.

These concepts encompass both outer and inner work, both service to society by helping those in need and service to the Divine by liberating the spark within us – The Light. It’s learning to add value to the world through our generosity of spirit, and finding heaven in our heart. As we are, the Divine spark lies hidden beneath our layers of egoistic self-centeredness. That spark of light is our true value, through which Divine Will flows toward us. By pursuing spiritual inner work to strengthen our soul and purify our heart, we grow more able to bear that spark without shattering. The work of transformation and building of a soul creates a sound vessel for the Holy Spark, which then returns that spark back to the service of “The Most Sacred And Holy One”. Working to perfect our self and our soul through serving society, we contribute to the perfecting of the world. This is our creative expression, duty, and our calling as human beings. To contemplate and enter the process of repairing or perfecting the world, we need to understand the concept of the world. All the major religious traditions present a hierarchy of worlds or levels of being, from the one we ordinarily inhabit to the ultimate world of Divinity.

For example, the worlds are Physical, Emotional, Spiritual, and Celestial. Beyond all these is The Most Sacred And Holy One; the Creator, the Boundless and Absolute. Each of the worlds corresponds to a progressively higher level of cosmic energy that relates to the levels of one’s soul.

  • The Physical realm utilizes the energy from which the soul can grow more.
  • The Emotional realm is built on conscious energy, the basis of awareness.
  • The Spiritual realm works with creative energy, which is brought to life by the Light.
  • The Celestial realm, which is Divine Purpose, brings with it the energy of Radiant Love, which forms greater coherence with the Most Sacred And Holy One.

The basic principles are that the seeker pursues spiritual practice to transform his or her being and rise through the levels of the realms/worlds, to bring his or her own will back to Divine will, while opening a way for the higher energies to flow down to this world, and thereby advancing the great process of restoration.

For millennia many spiritual masters have sought to serve this process by meditating on, and opening to the higher energy of Divine Love and Light this is the Light of the Radiant Self. They allow the Light to spread through them as if sitting in its midst and draw the Light down for the Earth, for life, for their own soul. The possibility of opening to the Divine Light stands within reach of us all if we are prepared to do the necessary inner work.

For those who can, yet another possibility presents itself, with a pure heart and a quiet mind, the person creates contact with Divine Light and raises the Light up into the Radiant Self, then offering the Light to the Creator in a sacred act of service, which is hidden (Higher Chamber) in the higher worlds. Only then does the person open the channel for the Light to flow down through his or her soul into our world. The idea of Divine Restoration places spiritual practice at the heart of this epic unfolding of the universe: it is the evolution and spiritualization of creation. With each small act of kindness, with each moment of being fully present, with each effort to see, cleanse, and integrate our inner life, with each heartfelt prayer opening to the higher energies and the higher will, we build the new world and serve the Divine Architect.

In conclusion, the outcome of the whole process remains uncertain because of the nature of free will. Truth is though serving our planet and fulfilling our highest destiny really does matter. Our personal inner work does, in fact, make a difference. If we can raise ourselves to the station where the Divine can see and act through us, then we complete the momentous work of restoring at least one part to the Whole. This story of Divine Restoration helps us discover a vision of unbounded meaning; it gives purpose to perfecting ourselves, perfecting the world and creating a genuine connection with the Creator.

Fashion is nothing to do with sex, fame or status and everything to do with your Attitude and Creativity – The way one presents their image; their style is only ever related to the person wearing it.

Indeed, we are what we wear – as we are what we share.
