THE TOOLS OF THE ALCHEMIST
Transmuting darkness into light, discovering more of ourselves, and uncovering the Truth.
Good day, fellow Alchemists:
All the spiritual knowledge that humanity inherited stemmed from a single source. That source is the hermetic teachings, the secret knowledge of the ancient masters. Those of us that know these secrets use them to our advantage, improving every aspect of our lives.
This secret knowledge has been summarized into seven distinct principles: Mentalism, vibration, correspondence, polarity, rhythm, cause and effect, and gender.
For today's discussion, we will elaborate on each one of these principles and how they can help you achieve a balanced life, while also manifesting that which you desire.
Principle One - All Is Mind:
Everything we experience in our lives is a creation of our minds. The truest form of reality is consciousness, without it, there would be no Universe. By understanding this concept, we can begin to see how our lives unfold in whatever manner our mind chooses. We experience that which we are most focused on, so mastering this principle is the key to manifesting your dream life!
Principle Two - As Above So Below:
Open your mind to the idea that the daily happenings of your life are a reflection of what happens in the higher realms of existence. For example, humans looked at the stars and discovered the rotation of the planets around the Sun. We then learned that inside of atoms, a similar phenomenon took place with electrons and protons.
Everything occurs on multiple levels at the same time.
Principle Three - Everything Is Vibrating:
Modern science has now confirmed the knowledge that the ancient masters knew long ago. All matter is composed of energy that vibrates at different intervals, thus creating different states of existence. This principle doesn't just relate to the three states of matter, solid, liquid, and gas, but to different dimensional levels that we exist on. The key here is knowing to increase your vibrations to enter higher states of existence. When your vibration is higher, you become unaffected by lower-dimensional forces. Raising your vibrations means liberating yourself from suffering and becoming your most authentic self.
Principle Four - Everything Has Its Polar Opposite:
Hot and cold, long and short, Yin and Yang, polarity exists within everything. The principle of polarity teaches us to acknowledge the dual nature of the Universe and then look beyond it. Take the example of hot and cold. It is our perception that they are opposites when in fact, they are the same. Even feelings of love and hate emanate from the same source. Use this knowledge to break through the chains of duality and move towards unity. It is up to you to change the degree of what you feel and have. Whether you are poor or rich, loving or hateful, stumbling in darkness or thriving in light, the choice is always yours.
Take these four principles and slowly begin to apply them to your life. In the next post, we will discuss the remaining three hermetic principles and how you can use them to manifest the life you want.
With love and sincerity,
